Every parent knows the constant struggle of thinking of new and exciting activities to keep the kids occupied and stimulated.  Our girls love doing arts and crafts, learning new things, and keeping active, but sometimes coming up with new things for them to do is a challenge in itself!  The Internet is a great place...

When we think back to the days of our school holidays, it’s hard to recall exact details as our last one was about 20 years ago! What does however stand out, are the family traditions that were built around said holidays. We want it to be the same for our kids and so we have started our own traditions that we hope...

Sunday mornings are the best. Since I started my new role at Edgars Sandton, it’s now the 1st day of my weekend. This Sunday we spent the morning in Morning Hill. It’s a suburb near Eastgate Shopping Centre. Afterwards we were handed a fairly large box upon arrival at home. At the sight of it the girls were pretty...

Family time. It’s an ideal for us all, but so difficult to achieve at the best of times, as our lives are so busy. For us, if we’re not rushing to get the kids to school, we’re rushing to a meeting. If we’re not rushing to a meeting, we’re quickly weaving our way through the supermarket to ‘get a few things’. It’s so...

So, as you may know we are expecting a baby boy. It has been quite overwhelming. Getting things ready for Clay’s arrival has been a bit intense. I am a very organised person by nature. When I was pregnant with each of the girls, I had a checklist ready for my hospital bag. It was focused on what we needed to have at...

Our youngest daughter Micah tells us why she loves Sofia the First so much. I like Sofia the First because she is so cute. I love her big eyes and her purple ball gown. There are two parts of the Sofia the First movie which are my favourite. Both of them take place at the Princess School. Amber gives Sofia the First...

Our daughters found out that I’m starting a new role at my workplace soon. They put me to the test, as they wanted to get a better understanding of what this means. I decided to style them in one outfit each to help them grasp the concept a bit better. We had to be on the cold streets of Joburg early one August...

Did you know that Minnie Mouse’s full name is Minerva Mouse? Here’s why our girls love Minnie Mouse: Dominique What I love most about Minnie Mouse besides the fact that she is a mouse (and I love mice) is her passion for fashion. When I was younger I loved watching Minnie Bow Toons. In this show Minnie and her best...

The girls and Emile are continuously requesting that I make their favourite treats. These are hands down the best chocolate brownies we have had. After much persuasion the other day, I finally gave in. On one condition… that we bake them together. I changed the original recipe up a bit and added a few extras. Everyone...

In our space our daughters are encouraged to be more gentle, more kind, more loving, more joyful, peaceful, self-controlled and patient every day. For us this is super challenging. Why? It means that we have to want this for ourselves as well. These are superhuman qualities, so we do realise that we cannot do it on...
