Welcome to HarassedMom

My little piece of calm in the chaos that is parenting 4 children, homeschooling 2 of them, trying to make sustainable choices, be a good wife and cook edible food –  all while working from home. 

When I started HarassedMom I was a single mom with two kids, living with my parents. Things have changed a lot.

I have been married for 9 years. David loves aviation and me (obviously)

We added two more kids to the mix. 

Cameron is 20, studying at UCT.

Kiara is 18, studying animation in Cape Town.

Jack is 11, he loves his drawing, tennis and playing xBox games.

Emma is 8, she loves karate and gymnastics. 

I have been homeschooling Jack and Emma for almost 4 years and while it is not the easiest thing I have ever done, we absolutely love it.
