I am a Mom of 5 sassy girls aged from toddler to teen and one great little fella among them all. I have fallen into numerous parenting and life's traps, shed a million tears (over numerous losses and a very sick baby) and stumbled out more experienced and (usually) still smiling. I blog about what I've learned along the way in issues from marriage, parenting, what's important in life, shopping, cleaning and organising, as well as anything else I think you'll enjoy.

I am a Mom of 6 and I blog about what I've learned along the way so you can glean from my.. successes, mistakes and insights. You will find topics from date night with hubby, speed cleaning,.. rearing worthwhile adults and funny tales of what went wrong.

This is the story of my precious little daughter, Louise, who was diagnosed in the womb with a major.. heart defect and Dandy-Walker brain malformation and subsequently diagnosed with PHACE Syndrome. It.. is a tale of hope, tears and joy.

    Ok ok, I’m the first to admit it, I’ve been neglectful in keeping my blog up to date. Part of the reason is my ever extending long finger but the other part of the reason has been my belief that we were home and dry and that Louise’...
