When visiting any country, I am always curious about the cultural differences regarding child-rearing practices and the attitude towards breastfeeding compared to the US.
South Africa is an interesting country because it can be viewed in many areas as Western, with a lot of European influence, but there are so many different cultures and subcultures in the country that the viewpoints of the people living within the borders of South Africa are vastly different.
I think that the idea of … Keep Reading!!!
I spent my 27th birthday in what has now become one of my very favorite cities in the world.
I woke up to a completed 27th year to discover Aram was on the road to recovery from his epic illness, which was the best present I could have asked for. We made our way to breakfast at More Quarters to find a tower of handcrafted cupcakes (complete with edible sparkles) waiting for us at our table, with a note … Keep Reading!!!
I read an article by a Forbes blogger right after the Time cover came out. The article ended up being linked by all the other Forbes bloggers in their pieces, but was ultimately removed by Forbes. I hope this was because the people in the corporate office understood how inflammatory and inaccurate the actual piece was. Normally, I’d take a stab at bloggers and generalize that most have a complete lack of respect for truthful journalism, but considering that … Keep Reading!!!
Early on in our trip, we decided to have a company take us on a few tours around Cape Town. Our first stop was to The Winelands.
We had lunch in Franschhoek (some us ate, some of us took the time and shopped)…
And finally we ended at the Cheetah Outreach where we all learned about this breed of dog (Anatolian Shepherd) that is helping save the cheetah.
We also were given the opportunity to pet the cheetahs in … Keep Reading!!!
I wasn’t sure what to expect when we arrived in Cape Town. Many people have told me it is their favorite city in the world, but there were others, (who maybe have never visited) who were telling us how dangerous the city was and that we needed to be very careful.
When we landed, I was surprised how much Cape Town looked like various parts of California. I saw Big Sur, Santa Barbara, Napa, and other … Keep Reading!!!
We’ve been pretty dedicated here to supporting international small businesses. Nearly all of our advertisements on this page come from small businesses, primarily handmade items, and mostly items we’ve found on Etsy.
To celebrate Jamie’s last few days in South Africa, we’re hosting a giveaway for a product by a South Africa jewelry artist. We very rarely hold giveaways here, so you know this is a big deal. This piece is valued at $50.00.

My husband Rowland is amazing and I know you’ve received lots of emails about amazing men, but my hubby tops them.
Rowland is a step-dad to my two children, now 3 and 4. He came into the game never having dated, not having his own kids, and completely excited to take on the challenges.
Once he met my kids, they all

Making time for yourself when you’re a mom can be really difficult. Whether you have a newborn, toddler, or school-aged child, the fact is that kids engage their parents a significant amount of the day. When Aram was a few months old, I discovered the importance of taking time for myself. Even if it was a relatively short amount of time, I needed it. I think all mothers do.
I know, not that crazy. … Keep Reading!!!
This week we’re celebrating Tim Nelis as our Real Man of Parenthood.
His wife, Sara, hit the jackpot in this guy. In this picture below, he is wearing their first son, Bennet, in an Ergo. Bennet is three here. They adopted Bennet at 2 years old and used baby-wearing to encourage attachment. Baby-wearing helped to teach him that he was theirs and to let him know that he was home, not in another foster placement that would end. Tim often … Keep Reading!!!
I really want to encourage families who are interested in traveling internationally with their children. As I mentioned, although Brian and my worst fear of traveling with kids came true this trip, we really can’t find any reason to fear it anymore. Although having Aram sick was so sad for him and we hated him not being able to enjoy everything to the fullest, he still had a great time, and we felt so safe.
Before taking a trip, Brian and I always discuss our concerns with the areas, especially when the kids are also coming with us.
With any trip, our biggest concern seems to be illness, because it is not only extremely stressful to be sick in an unfamiliar area, but also can be extremely dangerous if you don’t know where or who to go to for aid.
