So we had this debate going at home about which baby would start crawling first and on what day.
Naturally, I said at least one would be crawling on my birthday at the end of December. Also, naturally, I was wrong — no crawlers yet, but...

The first time you wake up and your children aren’t at home, up wells an emptiness that is hard to put into words. Simply put, it is a not a nice feeling.
When you move to the other side of the world it’s kind of imperative you prepare for...

I’ve written a bit about the girls learning how to make sounds and control their hands and feet.
It’s a wonderful process but a byproduct of their physical development is that we’ll have to compensate around the house by baby-proofing...

For a long time the girls rarely acknowledged each other’s existence.
Maybe it was their eyesight being very poor as newborns. Or it could have been they didn’t piece it together that they were seeing the same person every day.

There are milkshakes all the time at our place, and sometimes smoothies too.
The girls are six months old now and have made a huge step in their food journey. We’ve graduated from strictly milk and we’ve added purées.

Walking around Hong Kong with the babies is a peculiar experience.
The southern area of the region where we live is generally known as the more reserved and polite part of the territory. I haven’t travelled enough of the area to be able to...

Whoever said it would only take “a few days” for me to get over jet lag — you’re a liar and we’re not friends anymore.
As soon as 3pm rolls around, it feels like I’m hit by a wave on Horseshoe Bay during a storm surge. I can barely think...

I write to you from underneath five suitcases, five carry-ons, two baby seats and that lifetime supply of diapers I told you about in one of my first columns.
Our flight to Hong Kong is going to be 15 hours of pure, 100 per cent...

Sometimes opportunities arise which you hadn’t really considered before. Maybe it’s a job or a new experience; when you have a family you have to consider the impact not only on you and your spouse, but your children.
Well, my family is...

Mama”, “dada”, “ineluctable”. These are some possible first words any parent is waiting with bated breath to hear their child speak.
OK, maybe not all of them but the excitement around what your child might say is all the same as if they...

You never really consider how powerful our colour association is in the Western world until you dress your daughter in blue or green to leave the house.
Blue is boy and pink is girl. The look of surprise in people’s faces when you tell them...

In honour of the Rio Olympics, where gladly, it came off without any international incidents (beside Mr Lochte’s interesting tales to the police), I want to share a proposed list of events at the Inaugural Baby Olympics.
For the first time...

Inevitably, there comes a time when you want to leave the house with your newborn(s). After a few weeks of shielding them from all the sun, wind and rain, the babies must make their outdoor debut and face the elements.
This may bring some...

I’ve made a wonderful mistake. My twins have been finding it difficult to settle after they feed at night, so I let them fall asleep listening to my heartbeat. Good idea, right? I mean, what’s the worst that could happen? It’s not like they’d get...

There will be days when nothing goes right. The baby will be endlessly upset and you won’t know why but it will leave you stressed and tired, looking at your to-do list like a college student looks at their biochemistry syllabus during first...

We’ve all seen the routine: cries of duress from a helpless soul are heard by a sleepless protagonist who swoops in and saves the day.
There’s times when we all could use a superhero, especially us new parents.
Who hasn’t been...

I have a lot of respect for gardeners and farmers. Their craft is probably the most important in human history — next to the internet and the invention of the printing press.
What I find beautiful about the process of...

So let me start with a joke. What do you call a group of parents? A worry (cue rimshot). That might only be funny to me, but maybe it’s best to be lighthearted during times like this! If I can’t be happy now, when can I be happy? There is a...

Mother’s Day! It crept up on me this year, like a combination of a hurricane and tsunami.
I probably feel this way in part from a growing sense of total lack of preparation, increasing stress levels and sleep withdrawal.
