  • The first 8 weeks first hand

    Posted 2 April 2015 by Stacey A

    Written by Sharna   8 weeks, 1 day.  82080 hours. Sleep deprivation. Emotional rollercoaster. Tears. Helplessness. Aches and pains. Leaking when you sneeze, laugh or bend over. Ridiculous smiles. Thousands of photos. Unconditional love.  The diary of a first time mum.  ...

  • Dear mum with a newborn, it's okay.

    Posted 29 March 2015 by Stacey A

    Dear mum with a newborn, It’s okay.   -       It’s okay to look after yourself first and foremost. Everyone around you is probably going nuts over your tiny new miracle. Do they realise that your phenomenal body created that miracle? And that body r...

  • Life Beyond the Due Date

    Posted 25 February 2015 by Stacey A

    I’m almost two weeks past my due date.  Last week I wrote a story about it. Specifically, how much it sucks to go past your due date. It was quite therapeutic to write but I knew as I was writing it that it was a pretty average read. You see, it was basically just a whine-fest. When in...

  • That embarrassing moment at the play centre

    Posted 29 January 2015 by Stacey A

    It's taken me a long time to be able to write about this. Mostly because earlier on I feared that some of the mums there that day might recognise me if I publicised it and that would just make it all the more mortifying.    Embarassing moments aren't new to me. My first memory is be...

  • Ultimate Family Mini-Break

    Posted 13 January 2015 by Stacey A

    Phillip Island was a destination I had put in the ‘pre-kids basket’, along with many others. I’ve been there loads of times and have fond memories of long days at the beach and long nights eating great food and drinking wine. To be honest I hadn’t considered it as a family fr...

  • 2015. The year I let go of the guilt.

    Posted 29 December 2014 by Stacey A

    2015 The year I let go of the guilt.   It’s that time of the year when we start thinking about what we might like to achieve for the year ahead. Some people choose one word that they will aspire to follow: Happiness, Success, Creativity. Instead, I’m choosing one word to try to ...

  • Four Boys in Four Years

    Posted 17 December 2014 by Stacey A

    Four sons in four years?  To some people, I’m a walking add for contraception.  But this is why I’m actually the luckiest person alive.   When I’m in the supermarket, I often get the comment, ‘Wow!  You’ve got your hands full!’  I thin...

  • In defence of the birth plan

    Posted 7 December 2014 by Stacey A

    There seems to be a divide between pregnant women who have a ‘birth plan’ and those that don’t. In particular, I’ve noticed that those that do have a ‘birth plan’ are mocked for trying to gain control over something that cannot be controlled. Whereas the mamas ...

  • HOLY GROSSNESS

    Posted 8 November 2014 by Stacey A

    Me: 2011 I wouldn’t consider myself a precious, prissy princess or anything but I’m not really in to gross things. You won’t catch me breaking wind in front of people or talking about my bowel movements, that is for sure. The thought of any bodily secretions (pee, sweat, snot, e...

  • Beneath the surface of motherhood

    Posted 18 October 2014 by Stacey A

    I’ve been doing this parenting gig for two years now, plus nine months of pregnancy and I have a second kid on the way. I'm hardly a seasoned pro but I'm certainly glad to be out of that rookie year and honing my mum skills. I’ve written before about the ups and downs of parenthood; abou...
