Why do kids bite their friends?

Yesterday hubby picked up our son and was informed that one of the other children in our son’s class decided to take a bite of our son! According to the teacher, they were all outside when the incident happened. Like really!? Last year we had a similar incident at the playschool. Both times as per feedback from the teachers, it was unsolicited. Does my son give out some serious “bite me” pheromone?   pheromone plural noun: pheromones a chemical substance produced and released into the environment by an animal, especially a mammal or an insect, affecting the behaviour or...

Why we chose Swimming lessons over Judo…

We’re into week 3 of school this year and that means the start of the extramural activities. Last year our young man participated in KidiSports as we wanted him to be participating in an activity that would benefit his whole body and mind.

I still do believe it was the best decision last year.  A year later, and more educated as parents, we decided to pay more attention to what the school...

Inspirational Women 2017 – Mechel Neser nee Campbell – From VP to SAHM

Mechel and I met when we both worked for the same company. Perhaps that we both grew up in small towns is what drew us together. A business trip to Vienna, Austria changed our friendship forever. We went from colleagues to being friends. I believe she was my alter ego (we’ve now grown up) and I grounded her. For the last decade, we’ve shared each other’s low and highs. Attended each other’s weddings and experienced the welcoming home of our only children. We now live across the ocean from each other, but our friendship remains strong. I am sure...

Our Bush Weekend At Bakubung

What an awesome weekend away we had at the Bakubung Bush Lodge to celebrate our 5th Wedding Anniversary this past weekend. We arrived quite late on Friday evening, having only left literally after work. Our arrival was further delayed due to the lack of signage from the main road leading up to the lodge, or visible signage in the dark of the night.  From the moment we arrived the service and attention from the staff was amazing. Throughout the weekend I didn’t once feel rushed. Spacious rooms at the lodge, delicious meals. Just two hours out of Jozi, it...
