Experiencing the Experiential

Its one of those cloudy yet not-so-cloudy days where the sun feigns non existence and the next minute, shines right in your face!

A group of youngsters slouch against a brightly coloured wall clearly on a break. The quietness is welcome—only ever so slightly interjected with the clicking of the keys on a computer or the distant laughter of the people upstairs.

To the untrained eye, we probably resemble a chaotic, wannabe start-up desperately trying

Into the Unknown

It’s that time of the month. Again.

You heard me.

The end.

We’re almost in the 11th month of the year. The days have flown by so fast-it puts a cheetah to shame! It feels like yesterday when my now very active toddler took her first steps or her feisty sister started school. Wasn’t it just summertime when we went cycling in the sun?

Where does my help come from

One late evening in October, when my husband and I found out we were expecting again, our joy knew no bounds! We were thrilled beyond measure and Leanna, at barely 9 months old, couldn’t imagine why her parents were jumping all over the place!

After taking multiple home pregnancy tests just to confirm I wasn’t dreaming, we finally decided to tell family and friends. They were happy, of course! Some were shocked and some kept …
