It’s been 5 weeks since our daughter arrived and we’re slowly settling into our new kind of “normal.” The weather is changing and the snotty-nose season is upon us. Watching a bond develop between our children has been so fascinating to watch. Our newbie is mesmerised by her brother’s antics – he seems to be clowning around for her benefit and we find all his favourite cars, tow-trucks and tractors in her pram which is his most sincere way of showing his love.
I have realised too that a blog is a wonderful way of being part of a community. I have enjoyed reading your comments and your Mothers’ Day tributes had me in tears. How wonderful to know that we have such incredibly tenacious women who have raised us!
I’d like to make Modern Mommy a wonderful place to share your stories and where we can all learn from each other. And, of course, win wonderful prizes from time to time. We all LOVE a giveaway, don’t we 😉 But, I have realised how much I draw inspiration from you as readers and the vision I have for Modern Mommy and though I’ve been a bit quiet over the last few days, it’s been because I’m working on putting together incredible content for this blog which seems to be becoming my third child at the moment.
Congratulations to our winners of the Modern Mommy prizes from three previous posts: Busi Phaalhla who won R500 for her comment on sibling rivalry, Kelly Clarke who won the R1000 for sharing her story about her mom who raised 5 children whilst blind and Adele Kruger who won the breastfeeding shawl from Baby Sense for her comment on breastfeeding.

Please post your comments here about what you’d like to see on the blog and tell me which your favourite mommy blogs and other blogs are. Best suggestion for blog content will win a R500 Pylones voucher – it’s my new favourite gift shop from Paris. I enjoy their quirky designs and they make my desk a happy place with their fabulous office stationery. They now have branches in Cape Town and Jozi and you can also shop their wonderful goodies online by clicking here –http://www.pylones.co.za
Always lovely hearing from you! Much love and light.
