I laugh at myself, my nine children and my husband. Perhaps I hide a sadistic streak. The times I have laughed the hardest concern my husband and bathtubs.
Once Michael was stuck in a small bathtub, trying to rinse his hair with a princess shower head without getting any water on the floor. The second hilarious incident was when he was stuck in a cold bath, with his leg sticking straight out in a cast, while I attempted to haul him up!
Both times I laughed so hard that I ended up on the floor. My husband did not even smile.
Usually, though, my laughter cuts tension, sadness,... Read More
I was reading an article recently about all the cool things children don’t get to experience anymore. It bemoaned all the time spent on social media, video games, and the dissolution of teaching cursive writing in school. The author didn’t completely bash technology, but I definitely got the impression he would like to go back to pre-personal computer days.
I, too, remember my childhood fondly, and it was lacking in technology. We had a primitive (by today’s standards) gaming console and a calculator, but not much else. However, I would never send my children back to those days.... Read More
Mum’s 5 second rule is a common misconception with dangerous consequences. The rule goes along the lines that food dropped on a contaminated surface, i.e. the floor, is safe to be eaten if contact has not been for longer than 5 seconds.

Surely in this modern age there are studies, facts and guidelines? There are, this article provides a simplified explanation of those guidelines and provides... Read More

All babies do is gaga and googoo but they are actually the most curious of all beings. They like to speak and being spoken to. Exploring things with your child, playing games with him and taking him out into the real world will teach him more about life and people than any goodnight story ever will.
It’s very important for parents to spend quality time with their babies and encourage and discourage them when required. We all want our kids to think of us as superheroes so instead of discouraging, we stay mum when they do something wrong and instead of teaching them on our own, we choose... Read More
In fact, the scent of magic is still in the air, especially as our 6 and soon to be 7 grandbabies join our family! When you live with nine children, even the most crusty curmudgeon cannot resist the magic of Christmas.
It was still dark outside, way too early for my husband and me; we had worked to set up on Christmas Eve till 2:00 am.Although we couldn’t even pry our eyes open, we were smiling with contentment as we lay in bed, listening to the excited whispers and giggles of our three youngest children. They made their way down the front stairs whispering in awe because one of the... Read More
We have heard on the national television and read on the Internet about celebrity divorces.
