Holding on for the roller coaster ride

Holding on for the roller coaster ride

Who has a 9yr old girl and feels they are riding a roller coaster of emotions? Boy oh boy, I do! and it is frustrating not being able to put my finger on it. I can only put it loosely down to hormones and brain development? Between her happy moments, her outbursts of anger and her moments of self-doubt, I admit I am going slightly crazy! Trying breathing techniques, empathy and mirroring and getting her to cool off only work...

Mother’s Guilt

I was going to write about the ‘Art of Listening’ but have decided, based on certain events this week, I will keep that for the next post. Instead I decided to write about this immeasurable feeling that we carry around with us as mothers that I will call “Mothers Guilt” or as Cathy Guisewite puts it ‘Food, career, love and mothers – the four major guilt groups’. Let me explain…this week I felt as though I opened “Pandora’s Box” in...

What’s not to love about the #PureLove Campaign

Did you know 49% of new mums lose their confidence after birth? Dad’s on the other hand increases to 63%? I did not until Sydney Mum met Lois Wattis, author of New Baby 101, A Midwife’s Guide for New Parents, a Registered Nurse/Midwife, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and Fellow of the Australian College of Midwives. Lois is the spokesperson of WaterWipes #PureLove Campaign in Australia, a campaign and film...

Sydney Mum continues talking education

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the new reforms hitting the HSC and NAPLAN from 2017 and my thoughts how it will impact our family and my role as a mum. Since I have come across some interesting articles that talk about the importance of early intervention, in particular the possibility of NSW schools implementing a phonics test at the end of year 1. It would seem that Australian government schools could be taking a page out of...

Early detection is your best protection

Cancer, it’s the leading cause of death in Australia and knows no impunity and is non-discriminate. We all know someone who knows someone who knows someone and so on. Surfing the social media wave this week Sydney Mum came across this amazing story of Daniella, an inspirational woman sharing her very personal journey with breast cancer. She is on a mission and using Facebook as a launch pad, she has set a challenge to woman (and men)...

Wow, Wow, Wow! This is big news for me… Part I A few weeks ago it was brought to my attention the HSC in its current form has been subject to a massive makeover that is creating waves among communities of parents, educators and health care professionals. The reform brings a change to the literacy and numeracy standards expected from students completing year 9 NAPLAN tests onwards to become eligible for the HSC. NAPLAN is the acronym...

Empty Nester

I’ve become an empty nester. For the past season I been watching from my kitchen window a bundle of sticks hold together in the wildest winds and torrential rain, protecting its Currawong owner and her eggs. I watched her sit there for weeks, waiting.  I was bored for her and championed her as she fiercely chased swooping poachers and sticky beaks. Then I saw three bare little heads, screeching. Yes, three (oh, you poor thing!)...
