Our littlest baby is now 6 months old and it’s a turning point in so many ways. She’s finally out of the ‘danger zone’ on the weight chart, we can stop sterilizing bottles, she’s started the solids journey and hopefully today is the day that all my weaning comes together to allow me to completely stop pumping.
What an adventure! I have such a good feeling about the next 6 months and feel like we are finally coming out of the trenches now. Everybody is still alive, my marriage is still intact, I’ve lost a lot of baby weight, work is ticking along, both babies make us laugh more than they make us cry and 2020 is now on track.
This new season has brought about a change in mindset – a reset of goals and ideals in a way. And with this comes new ideas, new ways of looking at things and new opportunities appearing. It is with this that I decided to go ahead with a passion project that has been on my mind since the time B.C. (Before Children).
Please say hello to “Weekend Unplugged“. Weekend breaks away from the day-to-day grind to recharge and reset. It’s not your usual retreats where you bore yourself into a coma, it’s filled with lovely things to do in lovely surroundings.
The first one is booked for 15-17 May in the Welbedacht Nature Reserve in Tulbagh where you can take the time out to refocus yourself with yoga, trails, creativity, healthy soul food and excellent company.
I really believe that we need to learn to take some time for ourselves, especially as parents who tend to give everything that we have (and more) to our families – when do our systems get a chance to update or recharge? They don’t. We need to provide that time and space. For us. For our health. For our families. And for our happiness.
Join me on this self-love journey.
