When We have kids We’re never going to...

Last famous words from all the parents out there. Waaaaay before having kids was even on the agenda, we would agreeingly nod to each other, while friends around us parented their kids, and telepathically agree that WE WOULD NOT DO LIKE THAT, when WE had kids. Say no. Give Sugar. Allow TV. Show photos to coworkers. Be late. Talk about poo. Stop going out. And there we have them… the famous words of everyone before having kids. I used to roll my eyes at “scribbly-outside-the-line-all-over...

That thing about distance and how the heart grows fonder...

Hectic. Intense. 100 miles an hour. It’s a colourful circus we live where we are balancing on a tightrope, blowing fire, juggling balls and doing a triple somersault all at the same time, while we zigzag through nappies being swapped and  “I want that yellow car – I had it first!”. Sometimes I wish there was an Out Of Office button cos today, I wanna call in sick. I think it is fair to say that I am not the only one feeling like this at times. So when the, shall we call it opportuni...

Admitting Defeat is the Start of Victory

Being a kid of the eighties I was unfortunately not brought up thinking too much about the environment. We did have a compost but I didn’t have any social gatherings with it. In fact i’m pretty sure it was only the grass clippings that ended up there. I’m horrified to think what went in our rubbish on a daily basis. I should probably also admit, I was never the green warrior I so wish I could have been as I had moved out and started my own home. Reading ingredients rather than price tags w...

Grubby Little Kids full of Delicious Germs!

At times, I’m quite sure that my kids have moved my neat-freak obsession into a forever ongoing Pong playing session between “oh crap my hand will self-explode in 3 - 2 -1 after touching your poo” to “meh what’s a bit of vomit in my hand..I’ll just dry that on the back of my pants...” Oh my, how things have changed... Pre-kids I had to roll out the big guns to clear out and clean any remains from the shopping bags left ON THE KITCHEN BENCH, left there my beloved husband! Argh, the ...

Life before Little Genie Compostable Wet Wipes

As you are about to enter the realm of parenthood, never ever will there have been so much talk about the “before” and the “after”. To the point where its about to chew your left ear off, it’s insanely difficult and close to impossible to tackle all the ‘O for Awesome’advice you get. Left, right and center. High and low. From the friendly random lady at the supermarket to the sister-in-law-professional-mother-of-6. Yeah. I think you hear me now. So the “before” and “after” ...

Composting Wipes & Nappies

To put our bins on the curbside on time for collection is probably a bigger concern to most of us then where our rubbish ends up. However, this week as the dump truck whisked away, I started pondering just that. If each household rids of this much refuse each week or fortnight, how do landfill’s cope with the sheer volume of rubbish? And how long does this trash hang around before it starts breaking down?   With a little research I discovered that kiwis send approx 2.5 million tonnes of w...
