Hi there... my name is Sjaneen, I am a proudly South African, 30 year old Joburger. My family is my everything: I am married to the most kindhearted man on earth, and I am a mother to 2 little flower petals (my oldest daughter Mieke is 3 and my baby Mia is 12 weeks old). Although I’d love to be a stay at home mom I work full time as a teacher; desperate to make a difference in the lives of young people. 

When it comes to things that make my heart happy I have my finger in every pie- I love to eat, love to laugh and love to connect with people. I love baking, reading, painting, crocheting, crafts, sparkly jewellery and shopping. But above all else I adore my husband, love my children and I love to talk! As in an insane amount!

My passion is my family and my babies, and although I don’t always get it right I try to give of my best. I think being a mother and a teacher gives me quite a unique perspective. I have a lot to say, but I also have a lot to learn so my hope is you will join me on my journey. Maybe you learn something from me, maybe we laugh or cry together over similar experiences or maybe I can help you feel less alone in this crazy world that bombards and overwhelms us mothers with expectations and criticism.

So this is my space- To talk, vent, wonder and to share.
