I’m a mum and quite an open mummy blogger for that matter.
I share pictures of my family online everyday, sometimes I worry this might come back to bite me but I do try to be conscious and careful of the things I post because I know the Internet can be a big, bad and unsafe world out there and I believe being ‘aware’ is the first step.
Hubby and I are very much into technology and gadgets (well kind of) I hate to say we’re geeks (he is probably choking on his coffee now because he can’t believe I just used that word to describe us :)) but yes, we both have that tendency so I’m pretty sure Anjie and her sibling will grow up being quite ‘aware’ too. We’re not going to fight it or prevent it from happening because that’s just the way it is – heck, I’m even going to encourage it!
Like the title says, I’ve been nominated for Best Parenting or Family blog over at NigerianBlogAwards.com!! This is awesome news for me as I didn’t think I’d be nominated! A massive thanks to everyone who actually nominated me! Heck, I didn’t even think much people read my blog in the first place, so this is a real honour for me
Now can I please make one last request for you all to please vote for my ‘Stepping in Motherhood’ blog! Here’s a link to the voting page! Please don’t be a stranger, vote vote vote!! It closes on the 11th of December so there’s no excuse not to vote!
Thanks in advance…
Last weekend was a pretty busy weekend, I decided to go for a working mum conference down in London with my sister and it was great fun! Anjie get to hang out with her other favourite person in the world, her daddy, and mummy got to have some me time! It doesn’t get better than that :). But that said, she actually cried when we were at the station…. Glad to know I’d be missed!
So first of all, can I just say I am so glad to come home to Internet! We finally got connected yesterday after moving house earlier on this year! Yes, it took that long to get Wi-Fi and a landline from BT! But I’m not going to go into it, let’s just say it’s been very annoying, but all sorted now! So hopefully I’ll go back to blogging more regularly now… *crossing fingers*
Also, since Google reader no longer exists I’ve had to find another alternative to keep track of the blogs I read and in comes Bloglovin’, really good for finding different types of blogs too, so I’ll be hanging out there a little bit now! Lastly, I’ve been asked to include this link
Follow my blog with Bloglovin
So I can claim my blog so that’s what I’m doing!
You all have a lovely weekend and catch up later
So, yes I work for MoneySupermarket and all, but this is a piece I can definitely relate to!
Baby proofing our home is something we’re still constantly doing (even with a 14 month old baby), especially as we recently moved house. As much as we try to give Anjie the space to run around and have fun we also have to look out for her safety. One of her favorite places is the kitchen, which isn’t always a good thing what with all the cooking going on in there! But everyday is a school day so we live and learn! She’s definitely getting to that stage where she wants to be more independent and roam the house as and when she pleases! We’ve done quite a bit so I’m happy with the baby proofing we’ve done, the rest, we’ll deal with as and when required!
Here’s the infographic on baby proofing your house!

I’m hoping I won’t need to do this any time soon but just in case I do, where better to bookmark it then on my blog…
A nice and simple infographic on sleep training 101.

An online friend of mine, Aloted Omoba, just published an ebook on how to boost one’s confidence in the workplace and is currently available for free download at their website Super working mum. I’ve found this very useful especially as I’ve been at home for the last 9 months and just back at work myself. So why did I find it useful?
First of all, now that we’re in November, I can officially say:
I’M DUE NEXT MONTH!!!
Is that amazing or is THAT amazing??
Now that is out of the way, let’s move on. So I’m 33 weeks now and really starting to wish 18th of December would get here already! Plus I feel FAT.
Right! So finally hit 32 weeks – the 8 month mark and I’m getting more than excited! I can’t wait to meet her and I want to hold her already! But I know I need to be patient so she comes out perfect…
Also had a midwife appointment on Friday (the male midwife again!). Baby’s heartbeat is good but he said at this point it’s more the baby’s movement. If I notice a drop in the movement I need to make a call to the clinic and they would advise me what to do. Although they will advise me to drink cold water or a fizzy drink and/or something sweet to get baby’s glucose level up and see if it’ll make the little one move! If that still doesn’t do anything then they would bring me in for a scan… I have faith it will never come to that!
Well, like the title says, I have sadly begun to Waddle… How so very depressing!!
This week started like any other week except for the tiny fact that my engagement ring no longer fits! The horror!! Thank goodness my wedding ring still fits although I find that a bit strange considering they’re supposed to be the same size! Oh well… Better than nothing!
