Recently I put a call out to fellow child-wranglers to see if anyone had any advice on how to parent our three year-old who cares not a whit for consequences, threats, ultimatums, bribes or danger and only does things if it truly suits her to do so. The Mitz. Edie May Llewellyn. AKA Gregory The Second.  […]

Q starts year one tomorrow and I have to say, thank the Good Lord of Education because it may have taken 6 weeks, but on Saturday I finally cracked. All day long the girls did one dumb thing after another which caused me to threaten to take away every single thing they have ever or […]

Edie’s daycare is opposite a school, so if there’s no parking outside the centre, you can often get spots in the school drop-off zone which ends at 9am. This is perfect timing for us as Edie has never made it to daycare before then in her life, but on this particular day it was actually […]

I am typing this blog from our couch, my legs facing the tv, my body twisted awkwardly to face Gregory in the kitchen while he films the Facebook videos for the day. I’m slightly distracted by the olympic swimming finals on mute (the Aussie ladies just claimed silver in the 4x200m freestyle relay by the […]

A while ago Edie and I had cause to sit on the comfy plastic chairs of the RPA Emergency Department after her eye socket came into close contact with the solid edge of the pot plant.

The Squirrels are stealing all the food from the bird feeder, the Groundhog just waddled past the side of the barn, the Chipmunk (or cheekmonkey as the girls say) is scampering up the side of the well, the dew is glistening on the bright green lawn and I am the only one in the house […]

I was at a cafe recently and I watched a woman accidentally spill her cup of coffee all over the table and herself. No big deal, I do that all the time. What was weird was she didn’t try to mop it up. She just let it slowly slop over the edge of the table […]

Shingle Bells, Shingle Bells, Shingle All The Way… These are the lyrics Edie, (our two-year old) sings to her current favourite; Jingle Bells. She loves to sing, never stops. Melody – on point. Lyrics? Always optional. She’s mastered a lot this year so I won’t give her too hard a time. Everything is new when […]

Two years ago I went to my last yoga class before I gave birth to Edie. I recall writhing about on the mat aiming just to see my toes, since touching them had been lost to me about four months earlier. A couple of weeks ago I went back to yoga because while I can […]

I think it is really excellent that you can do a degree in Anthropology. What an awesome thing to study. I think it is even more excellent that I can do my own study of anthropology free of charge and without having to reference my papers properly. You see, I study people all the time. […]
