Personal Blogs | A Family Affair
Meet my family. These were taken at Zinkwazi Beach on our every 2nd year annual family holiday, which is a fun, meddling, loving, crazy, interfering, protective, dysfunctional time of togetherness, filled with hugs and kisses.
This post is way overdue as we were blessed with 2 new members added to this crazy bunch, since these were taken. The heart of our family is growing in leaps and bounds this year as we are adding another little one before the end of the year, taking the grand children count from 3 to 6. And might I add that you will not find prouder grandparents then the ones in these pictures.
Every single member of this clan is a little nutty in their own way but strangely this close unit is what’s keeping us sane in this crazy world we live, love and laugh in.
Love you all insanely and will fight and protect you passionately!
(Thanks mum for the pictures taken of Kayla and I. LOOOOOOVE every one of them. And thank you to Mallie (my brothers friend) for taking the Family portrait.)

Why was I so desperate to have a natural birth?
Yes, it would have been a most empowering experience for me and yes my next one will be a VBAC, but was it really that important in the bigger scheme of things? At the end of it all we got what we set out to achieve – a human being that we could guide and mould and set free into the world for her to make her own impact. Maybe that trauma she and I both endured in getting her Earthside happened exactly how it was supposed to. That’s birth and even more so parenting – you set off on a course with big plans and that’s great, but there has to be flexibility and acceptance in changing course depending on whatever life (or your kid) throws at you.
After a minute or so we heard your first loud cry. It was glorious and we could finally breathe. Sr Lotter brought you to us and our hearts melted, my boy. You were beautiful. We checked for 10 fingers and 10 toes and we couldn’t stop looking at you. The happiest moment of our lives. You were born at 11:33 weighing 3.49kg and measuring 53cm.
