Homeschooling my toddler

Now I just want to put it out there that I really dislike the word ‘homeschooling’ and it sounds a lot more complicated than what it actually is. I decided to start teaching my daughter things at home when I realised that she was understanding concepts and learning. I mean children are constantly learning but to retain the information is another ball game. I started not too long ago actually, just before she turned 3. Children grow up super quick. Your newborn baby becomes a toddler in no time! I always smile at my daughter…

Saying Goodbye to Mummy Guilt | 5 Ways to beat it

One thing I love about women is when we get together and are honest with each other and no competition, there is so much learning and enlightening that happens. I personally cannot be around people that I can’t share my highs and also the lows of things that happen. I find it very superficial. Women that constantly try and make everything seem perfect are not my cup of tea. I don’t know maybe it’s because I like to share my thoughts and feelings. I’m a sharer. Hence why this blog does me so well. It’s…

Are black dolls even necessary? | Lessons I have learnt from Motherhood

I wasn’t going to post this, but I thought what the heck? It is important to me, so I might as well share it. To set the scene, I will explain abit about myself. Growing up I had a hol’ load of self esteem issues. I felt that I was too dark to be seen as beautiful and attractive to the opposite sex. I felt that I was too ‘spoilt’ to be seen as a Christian. I felt too ugly and worthless to be seen as anybody significant. I felt like the features that God…

Advice for the 11+ System for Kent, Bexley, Medway and Bromley | Part 1

I love all things education. I am passionate about it. I have attended workshops, worked with young people and even considered teaching when I was re-evaluating my Investment Banking career! However, I do not have the patience levels of a saint which is absolutely necessary working with children, so I just stuck with banking! God is helping me on that! This blog is an insight into my interests, and as much as I loveeeeeeeeeee a popping highlight and a matte foundation, I also love researching and reading about education. As soon as my ‘mum’ hat…
