Motivation in May

Motivation in May. www.mommakingmemories.comMay was a bit more difficult for me than the previous 4 months of 2017. As you know we received our Number One in January so in May it was time for me to go back to work. To add up to that winter is slowly crawling closer. Although the days are still sunny and (mostly) hot, the mornings and nights are cool. Continue reading Motivation in May

My experience with the Baby Throne

My experience with the BabyThrone. www.mommakingmemories.com

This is not a sponsored post or a review… merely the experience of one mom whose husband insisted to buy the baby throne 3 years ago. My only disclaimer is that I will be talking about baby poop.

Few months before Little Captain was born we went to a Baby Expo. Within the first 20 minutes my hubby bought the Baby Throne (15 of those 20 minutes were spent talking to the saleswoman… she was also the developer of the product).

French Fridays – Versailles

Versailles in Paris. www.mommakingmemories.com

DAY 8 – Sunday

In our time in Paris we didn’t see the countryside of France or EuroDisney, but we saw Versailles. I think it can take two days if you want to see everything properly.

Letter to my mother

A letter to my mother. www.mommakingmemories.comWhere do you start a letter to your mother? That is the woman who gave you life, a woman who will do anything for her children? Where do you start to thank her for everything she did?

Since I became a mother I could only start to understand the capacity and vulnerability of a mother’s heart, how much love it can hold while at the same time break into many pieces. Continue reading Letter to my mother

Ontmoet my seuns – Klein Kaptein en sy Nommer Een

Ontmoet my seuns, my Klein Kaptein en sy Nommer Een. www.mommakingmemories.comDaar is soveel verskillende opinies oor hoe ver jy jou privaatheid moet beskerm op die internet en sosiale media… veral as jy blog en mense van jou lewe (en die mense in jou lewe) wil vertel. Om daardie rede het ek besluit om skuilname vir my seuns te kry. Continue reading Ontmoet my seuns – Klein Kaptein en sy Nommer Een

Welkom by Mom Making Memories in Afrikaans

Welkom in Afrikaans

Welkom by Mom Making Memories… in Afrikaans. Ek wonder die afgelope weke oor ʼn tweetalige blog. Daar is maar net ʼn ander manier om dinge in Afrikaans uit te druk, dus het ek besluit om ‘n Afrikaanse kategorie by te voeg.

Wie is ek?

My naam is Rolene en ek is ‘n werkende mamma met 2 pragtige seuntjies. Ek skryf graag oor ma-wees, geloof en ons daaglikse ervarings.

Hoekom Mom Making Memories?

Die lewe is bitter gejaagd en mens kom nie altyd by alles uit nie. Ek glo elke persoon het ʼn stukkie van die lewe se legkaart en deur dit met mekaar te deel kry ons ʼn groter prentjie.

My visie vir die blog is om met ander mammas kontak te maak en mekaar te ondersteun; om hoop te bring in ‘n besige (en soms deurmekaar) wêreld en terwyl ons dit alles oorleef… die lewe te geniet en nuwe herinneringe te maak.

Wat sal jy vind op Mom Making Memories?

Stories uit ons daaglikse lewe, algemene gedagtes en dalk selfs gedigte… alles in my moedertaal!

Hoekom Afrikaans?

Want Afrikaans is lekker!

 

Ek sien uit om van jou te hoor.

Kontak my by mommakingmemories@gmail.com en stel jouself voor. Waarvan wil jy meer lees?
