    The Intentional Mother

    If you’re a mother, you will have times when you feel intense overwhelm. Sometimes you will experience this overwhelm on a daily basis. We desire to be ‘Warrior women’, but instead some of us feel like ‘worriers’.  We quickly learn that there is so much more to being a mum than just surviving pregnancy and giving birth.  It fact, we are required to raise our children to be leaders in a world where we aren’t allowed to discipline. None of us want our children to turn out this way – do we? It is for this reason,  we choose to discipline our kids. It is also for this reason we lie…

    Glamping Fun!

    Last weekend we ‘Glamped’ at the Broadwater Tourist Park on the Gold Coast.  We were going to camp, but we had a number of cold nights here, and I chickened out of camping in a tent because I really didn’t feel that we were set up to camp in the cold.   I’m still keen to camp but now that I have experienced the cabin option, I’m in love with glamping. Our cabin number was 312. It was the first cabin along the beach front and we had the best view of the little  beach, and our view to Sea World was lovely.  Our weekend away was literally the most…

    That Sugar Film – a Kid Friendly Doco-movie

    This week our family went to see, ‘That Sugar Film‘, and I have to tell you that it’s a doco-movie you must see. In fact, it’s a doco-movie you must see with your kids – and your partner!  Its absolutely 100% family friendly. Its informative and it will help curb your children’s sugar addictions! We decided to take the kids to see ‘That Sugar Film‘, because one of the previews for the movie introduced viewers to 17 year old Larry, the boy who’s teeth were rotten from drinking Mountain Dew.  We don’t drink Mountain dew in our house, but I wanted the kids to associate soft drinks with Larry’s teeth.   Soft drinks are so…

    Did you bring your game?

    I’m not sure when it started, but at some point in the last six weeks,  I started asking our girls each day if they are bringing their game to the table today! I mentioned it to my friend recently when she asked me how I get my kids motivated for school each day.    All I know is that whenever I ask this question, the kids work well, and when I don’t ask the question – we seem to have an average work day.    We’ve started calling it the ‘golden question’, because we really do feel that we have a good work day when I ask them if they are bringing their…

    New Year. New School 2015

    This year is shaping up to be a good one for our family…and its quite exciting!! We decided at the end of 2014 that we would be making a massive change in 2015.   There are numerous reasons for this decision, but our Bethy is the main reason for making this change. Bethy struggles academically, and has done so since she started school.  She’s always been young for her age, and this year she’s in year six (the last year of primary school).  School life has been challenging for Bethy, and we have had many friendship issues along the way.   On many occasions, over the years, Bethy would climb into the car at…
