Today is a big day for our family. Super Petit Garçon is staying away from home for the first time on a school trip. It was originally meant to happen last month, but the torrential rain we’ve had led the school to rearrange it to today. The class is travelling to the Pyrénées where they … More Super Petit Garçon’s first night away from home
I’ve mentioned before on the Wannabe Supermaman blog about how Super Homme and I met. It was quite by chance through a French dating website, not long after we’d both come out of miserable marriages. The way we felt about each other, and so quickly, just blew us away. We still can’t believe our luck. We … More Wannabe Supermaman blog featured in Woman & Home magazine
About six weeks ago a local mum told me that her nearly four-year-old had started saying “caca” and “pipi”. These are words used to describe “poo” and “pee” to kids.

I am now officially halfway through my pregnancy. “Hooray!” read the Baby Center app. “Celebrate by splurging on a pedicure, a pregnancy massage with essential oils, or a new outfit that shows off your bump.” Okay, then. Not sure who this wildly-off-course message could be for, but it isn’t me. It’s banking on a lot … More Why do I feel as though I have to justify this “third child” pregnancy?
It seems as though Super PG has only just started at school and unbelievably it’s the holidays already. It isn’t half term, which was my first assumption (as this is what it would be called in the UK), but these “vacances scolaires” run from Monday 17 October until Friday 30 October, 2015, and are known … More French school holidays
As I dropped Super PG off at school today with two chocolate birthday cakes for the kids in his class, I told the teacher and her classroom assistant to share any that was left over among the other “profs”. Well, today is World Teacher’s Day [#WorldTeachersDay] after all. Having to teach a big class of … More A third birthday party and World Teacher’s Day
