Q Photo Photobooks

I received my third photobook from Q Photo this week and it is stunning! For this theme I went with choosing photos of my two children together throughout the years. I love their bond and there are some very special moments that have been captured in this photobook.

My next photobook is on the way, For this one I chose my wedding photos. My husband and I have been married for 10 years and I have never printed out our wedding photos so this is going to be super special.

Panado® Paediatric Syrup, Peppermint 5 ml Sachets

Panado has brought out an amazing product that every mom needs – 5 ml sachets for on the go parents! The first thing that came to my mind when I heard about it is no more sticky spoons and glass bottles! What I would have given to have these on hand when my kids were teething babies.

You can get them at selected Dis-chem, Clicks and Pick n Pay stores. It wasn’t available at the Dis-chem in Vredenburg when I went to look, so I ordered them click and collect on the Dis-chem website and they were available the next day for collection.

Nova Choc-Oh-Late

Yay, I received my Nova Choc-Oh-Late for April and May this week. Yes there was a delay due to a delay in cacao being delivered. While I may have waited extra long for my delivery it was super exciting to open the box to find double the amount of chocolate inside!

With winter well and truly settling in I am going to really enjoy eating chocolate in bed while watching Netflix. I’m also going to be finding lots of new things to bake since I received loads of baking buttons.

FYI play it safe

I’ve been using the FYI play it safe app for a few weeks now on my kids’ phones and I am loving it. The app monitors your child’s online activities and if there is anything of concern it takes a screenshot and send it to your phone.

I’ve received a number of alerts to check and thankfully everything is fine. I’m so grateful I can rest easy knowing that if anything happens I will be aware of it immediately. The app monitors for things such as depression, self-harm, adult content, profanity, grooming and more.

Addiction eBook

A few years back I wrote an eBook about my days in active addiction – to highlight how powerless I was over my addiction and how far in denial I was about my problem. I am so incredibly grateful to be 13+ years clean and sober.

Mental Health Update

If you’ve been following my live videos and weekly updates on my blog you will know that I have been finding it really hard to cope lately. Last week my doctor doubled my prescribed meds and thankfully I have been able to get some decent sleep in and I finding it a bit easier to cope.

Managing my mental health is sometimes easy but there are times where it gets hard and I have to put in a lot of effort to make sure that I stay on track. This week I have been more productive when it comes to my work which is great since lately it feels like I’m scrambling all the time to get things done. One thing that I have found to be so important is to watch my energy levels and be careful about when I can push myself and being kind to myself when I need to slow down and rest.

I’ve found over the years that my mental health is not a steady thing. It ebbs and flows, and things change all the time. It is so important for me to be mindful of where I am all the time when it comes to my mental health. Best mom bloggers 2021 – Dr. JoanetteKaboutjie Was Featured On Dr Joanette
