Blogging about AriBear…

Our parenting journey with all its tantrums, giggles and every sleepless night we continuously have. I will share insights on raising our girl AriBear. She is our greatest joy, and our very first!

I am Mponeng and a first time Mom to the most adorable girl, Aratwa (Ari or AriBear as Mommy and Daddy call her). Her name translates to “the one that is loved” in Sesotho. We live in the Free State, South Africa. I started this blog to share my experiences as a first time Mom to give support and assurance to other parents out there who like me have no idea what is happening half the time. Hubby and I have been married for five years this year and he is an absolute gift. I have always wanted to write and he encouraged me to start this blog and I will forever be grateful to him. I love sharing my girl, she is such a character!

Below are my blog inserts with the most recent showing first. Please feel free to comment and share your stories or any feedback you have, it helps to know someone is out there reading. We have social media pages where I share videos and pictures of our girl, click on them and be part of our very colorful world!

Anxiety and the mall…

If like me, you don’t have a helper or nanny then you know that anywhere you need to go, baby tags along. I have to weigh first how much Hubby might need me or if he could handle whatever it is on his own. Then I let him go without us because toddlers are an […]
