My Kids Do(Dont) look like me

I’ve always believed that my kids look like their dad, that I was just an incubator.

They have his eyes, nose, cheeks and even his toes. The only similarity they have
to me is my big fat bottom lip. When people tell me they look like me I disagree and argue that they don’t.

A few days ago my mom decided she was going to shut me up and prove the kids do look like me.

She pulled out a baby photo of me and one of me at about 2.5 years and I finally had to swallow
my words and apologise to everyone.

The photo’s are identical, the only difference is clothing and a ponytail in the older pic of me and Calum.

I will from now on admit – My kids do look like me.

Why does sand taste so good


Sand, Beach sand, Building sand, Garden variety sand

Goodness knows what is so tasty about it, but my kids seem to love it.

Maybe it tastes like ice-cream with chocolate sprinkles, or jelly tots.

Is it good for one’s digestion? Hopefully it doesn’t give them worms.

Whatever it is – the kids just love it.

There's only one place to start and thats the beginning....

So I’ve never written anything in my life except for a few essays in school, a few bad poems and maybe a letter or two for work, but a friend of mine blogs regularly and well she kind of made me think that I always have a million and one things to say about a million and one things.

So here's a short one to start, just a little something about nothing.

Today I created my blog; I had to think hard about a name, a colour for the site etc.

Here are a few of the names I didn’t pick

- mammaapie
- rantnrave
- yackyackyack

none sounded as nice and genuine as what my site is now called.

So here's to the start and may it continue for long...
