Lesson’s learned

Sending a big virtual hug to you all…… After a brief hello and I am back, I am sorry to say I disappeared again into the fog of motherhood. Combined with a few personal upheavals, this year certainly has been one of the most enjoyable, saddest, hardest and fulfilling years I have had. I have loved every second of it and it has been one learning curve after another So….I wanted to start again and say HELLOOOO, I am STILL surviving motherhood 2nd time around and its been a crazy old year! Actually, I shouldn’t really say surviving, I should say enjoying – loving – embracing – happily living. All those worries I had, all those doubts about myself and… Read More →

Paula Kerr-Jarrett interview by Joy Carter on Women, politics, motherhood and success Pt 2 I first met Paula Kerr-Jarrett at an event last year at the Jamaican High Commission, and you know when you meet someone who simply takes your breath away it was like that.

The ‘Motherhood’ Rap (SO TRUE)

How parents roll I had to share this….before becoming a Mum this would have not made any sense. Elena Bernardelli, Fiat UK’s marketing director told Digital Spy that the company wanted to reach “dynamic mothers … balancing motherhood with their desire to keep hold of their pre-children identity.” Naturally, that vision led to inspired rhymes such as “Work versus home is a mental complication.

Of course, whether the ad sells cars or not, this mom speaks the truth: Once you’re in The Motherhood, “you’re here for good.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/04/fiat-motherhood-rap_n_2403360.html Here you go! Fiat Motherhood Rap I predict… Read More →
