Ok, Sooo this is a work in progress.

What the …. heck is a plug-in … I realise that I know nothing about the technical side of blogging. This may be harder than I thought. I am I going to let that stop me, nope!

Like ALL  parents I knew zero about parenting – I still became one. Before I became a teacher, I knew next to nothing about teaching in a formal setting – been teaching for 3 years.  I am learning how to be intentional – to do things on purpose to gain experience. So, what I don’t know about blogging, I will learn because I have to teach myself that I can do all things… even if I fail – I tell my class that we all learn in different ways and one of those ways is not getting things right. It’s ok to fail, it’s not the end of the world (this is me motivating myself because while writing this I still have no idea what I’m doing – help!!).

I read 10 tips for being intentional every single day to motivate myself……


10 Tips for Being Intentional Every Single Day

Back to plugins – I will find out how to use a plugin and link What The Mum to my Facebook page. When i have done this I will post this blog on Facebook, along with an update.


Please Note – This is still a work in progress. Your links will be much appreciated  : )

I make this look Good;)

I make this look Good;)

Awwww! He’s soooo handsome I here you chime!

Well Yes he is, what can I say , it’s in his DNA ( check out the picture above as proof). But please note Smo is  currently in kidulthood . He also has ADHD and while there is no crime in having either or either  the two are a mixture of oil and water!  Soooo I managed to guide, push and pull Smo through 2015 shouting all the while “what the…” (Smh).

What the…

yessss, I am here! Finally. I have decided to  log all my thoughts and feeling about being a mum.

Warning! I am not a traditional mum and this is what has shaped the ideas for this blog.  So here I go …


This is my favourite phrase and why I named my blog “What the Mum”. Stop my cussing ( most of the time). What is being a mum in this time and age. As parents/adults the lives we led as children should inform and influence our parenting skills. As my children and I get older I see the very challenging issues that my children are faced with  that I  never have to deal with as a child. How do I navigate my way through parenting so that I can raise warriors not worriers…  Continue reading
