Binnelanders actress, Marijke Coetser says Sleep Sense’s consultations are probably what saved her marriage, which is why she didn’t think twice about becoming a consultant herself.
No one ever said adulting would be easy. Nor did anyone say being a working mom would be easy. Some might imply that it is easier than what I would like to admit, but still, it’s not easy. I’ve been struggling with the work-life balancing act as a mom the last couple of weeks, so I went and read up about how to simplify things. Here are a few things that proved to be helpful (and also reassuring in a way):
It’s time for a fun and innocent, but also relatable and valuable animation! Courtesy of Black Sheep Films, Maya the Bee 3: The Golden Orb is set to be released in cinemas nationwide on 23 April and it is the perfect family movie with life lessons for all ages. Through Maya’s exciting adventures and her journey of self-discovery, kids will be able to identify experiences in their own lives, opening up a whole list of family conversation starters.
I’ve been facing the challenge of having to find ways to get Elian to eat. Not just veggies; anything! In fact, shove a plate of anything healthy in front of him and I’ll probably say: “He’ll never eat that.” I’m sure there are many moms out there who face the same challenge, but it’s only now that I realise how frustrating it is when your kids don’t want to eat. The South African Mushroom Farmers’ Association has come to my aid with this recipe, though, and I am pretty sure that it might have my kids craving for more.
A luxury safari often has dreamy sunsets, romantic boma dinners, peaceful game drives and blissful sunrises attached to it. That’s until kids become part of the picture and you need to exchange romantic getaways with well-planned family holidays. We’ve recently gone on our first luxury safari with our kids and this was our experience.
No one ever said life would be easy. Things happen; things change. As humans, we are all able to adapt to change, but as with all things in life, we need to learn the skill. We have recently had to help our 3-year-old to adapt to many changes, including those that came with the Coronavirus and a baby brother. Here are some of the ways we have been able to make the road a little less bumpy.
I’ve always been a fan of stories with lessons. Watching a movie and walking out without feeling touched, motivated or inspired feels like a total waste of time and money to me. The Elfkins, an exciting animation (and a story with a lesson) will be released in theatres on 25 December 2020 and it’s a movie dedicated to making a difference. Or is it baking a difference?
There’s a place where the sun paints pictures with lacy leaves against the walls and where birdsong and frog chatter are the main choices on the playlist. Nehema Manor is one of the destinations I regard as a special find. Here you feel far enough from the outside world, but close enough not to feel disconnected.
In response to my recent blog post on medicinal vaccines, I thought you might find some information on homeopathic prophylaxes insightful too. This is no advocation for either type of treatment, but rather an informative take on the options out there.
As a mother of two, the issue around vaccinations has also been up for discussion in our household as we obviously only want what’s best for our kids. Sister Sazhia Karsten from the Little People Wellness Clinic at LifeLab shed some light on the topic.
