free play

Instead of feeling guilty about the fact that we don’t have time for any organised “mums and tots” group, Liza and I thought we’d utilise our current situation so that it works for both our boys and us. Genius! Well, not really. We just thought that once a week we’d take time to sit on the floor and let our babies interact with us and each other, learn some balls skills and explore at will. We have managed once so far and it was fun. The boys are very sweet together, they acknowledge each other every now and then with a push or an affectionate whack but otherwise they just explore at their own pace. It’s so cute to watch. We’re going to try and do it once a week.

These pics are extra cute because they are both looking very hip and trendy in their tops from Love Baby online baby clothing store. Jamesy’s very awesome fox top is by Petit Pois and Robbie’s bike tee is by Sticky Fudge. Love Baby stocks some of the most ridiculously cute stuff. Hip and convenient – just what you need as a busy working mama. Check it out and be inspired.

the beauty ed

So our next mama in our Parenting Juggle has actually met Oprah. She’s that cool. She does work at O Magazine, but meeting Oprah is still pretty impressive. She also has a long list of other impressive achievements to her name. Like being a working mama, a wife and always looking fabulous. Chereen Strydom is the Beauty Editor at O, The Oprah Magazine as well as a part-time life and style blogger at For the Beauty of It. Chereen is married to Sean who is an illustrator, artist and musician and they have a very cute little 8-month-old bubs called Noah. Here, Chereen allows us a little insight into her crazy days and how she manages to juggle her many roles with such panache!

2 under 2 is no walk in the park

Hello, my name is Emily! By now, most of you know that Liza and I run this blog together, as well as our writing and editing company, Copy Ink. My husband, Ryan, is a PPC Campaign Manager and we have 2 kids under 2 years old (!) – Willow, who’ll be turning 2 in a few weeks and James who’ll be four months on Thursday. We also have a long-suffering staffie called Zula who used to be our only baby, shame!
