Monday Musings

Public Holidays are great if you don’t work for yourself. I find them incredibly disruptive but fortunately I have an incredible husband who has taken the younger three kids to his mom for brunch so I can get the work done that I needed to get done today.

I managed to power through most if it and so I am taking a few minutes to get a quick blog post done. We have had a great weekend so far. I had a photo shoot with a client on Saturday and then we had a braai with them afterwards. It was a little bit of organised chaos but the kids had the best fun. They ran and jumped and laughed and ate and played until we left at 21h30. Even Baby R didn’t stop moving all day, which meant no nap and a rather crappy night. I love days like this where the children just enjoy being outside and doing what kids were meant to do. HarassedMom

On an unrelated topic, do bigger kids still have growth spurts? Jack eats like he has an empty pit in his stomach some days. I think he could possibly eat more than Cameron. It is not every day but when he starts, he eats and eats and EATS! 

This a question for all the working moms – what are some of your favourite working outfits? I am working in a clients office two days a week now and so I need to start building a bit of a working wear wardrobe. I found a really nice black skirt from Spree a few weeks ago. I even bought a pair of high heels but I do think sneakers need to be acceptable work wear!HarassedMom

What is everyone else up to today?

    Sneakers with a stretchy pencil skirt and an nice t-shirt and a scarf can be pulled of as work wear, that or just pair them with pumps.
