When I watched this TED video, it made me realise just how many people go about their lives doing things with no purpose. How people never question the things they do, say or believe. I like to know the reason behind everything I do. If I don’t know why, I question it and the answer I get has to make logical sense. One of the things I would hate, is for my children to grow up without this mindset.
All mothers know that new baby smell. When you kiss your baby, you don’t just do it with your lips but with your nose too. Any opportunity to smell them gives us calm and wanting more as though it’s a drug. I may be an extreme case but I’m in love with smells that I shouldn’t really be loving like his sweat, his milky breath, even his full nappy. Ok, I’ll stop right there. I bet you’re thinking, “crazy woman”. Continue reading

I’ve been so lucky this past week to be nominated for two awards. I’ve posted for the Real Neat Blog Award already. This is for the Versatile Blogger Award which I have been kindly nominated by one of my loyal followers; Miss Cassiopeia. I can not thank you enough for this wonderful complement. It makes everything feel so much more worthwhile when I know that I am connecting with people who enjoy my blog.

- Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
- Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
- Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

My best wishes to all of you! x
7 Things about moi

- I have my tea black, with no milk, ahh… the true taste of tea

I want to be a stay at home mom.
There, I said it.
I know that this blog is called Mom at Work. I know that I’m supposed to be writing about the whole work/life/mommyhood balance and how it really is possible to juggle it all and to at least appear to be having a good time of it. I know that I’m a feminist and I should want more for my life than pureeing baby food and keeping house and reading aloud the same cardboard book 72 times before the sun has come out for the day. I know that I should want to define my life as more than the success of my children and harmony of my family.
I also know – or at least I have been told – that being a stay at home mom would drive me one hundred percent loopy (or loopy in…

Watch this video when a teacher engages in a physical fight with her student:
How does it get to the point where a child feels they are invisible? How long must this teacher have been suffering for her to react like this? It might not just have been this day, it Continue reading
These are so right. I don’t even know which one to comment on because they are equally as important to each other. This is so me. Have to reblog this
All women want to be perceived as strong and fearless, but most aren’t just born with an innate sense of self-confidence or resilience.
No, strong women develop over time. They are ever-evolving, always striving to be the best version of themselves. Like diamonds, the best women are forged under pressure. They are tough on the outside, but radiate from the inside.
Aristotle once said,
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
To that end, here are 14 habits strong, fearless women share:
1. They own up to their mistakes.
Fearless women don’t blame others for their mistakes or try to skirt blame. They own up to their actions and work to remedy any missteps.
2. They learn from the past, instead of dwelling on it.
Nothing good ever comes from living in the past. Strong women don’t dwell on things they can’t change; they live…
