Hey There!

Welcome to my corner of the digital world fellow parenting warriors and mischief managers!

I’m Kadija, a seasoned early childhood educator turned proud mom with a wealth of experience in nurturing young minds. With a decade of dedication to fostering learning and growth in the early years education and care sector, I’ve transitioned seamlessly into the beautiful chaos of motherhood. Join me on this wild ride from “Yarning Circle” to “Mom Time” where I will share insights, tips, and heartwarming anecdotes from my unique journey.

As an early childhood educator for over 10 years, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing the magic that unfolds in the first few years of a child’s life. From the first steps to the first words, every milestone has been a celebration of curiosity and discovery. My passion for early education led me to explore different schools of thought regarding raising and guiding little humans. As a mom, I draw upon my educational background to create a loving and enriching environment for my little one. 

They say parenting is a walk in the park, Jurassic Park maybe! As I traded my teacher’s cap for a mom bun, I quickly realised that parenting is like herding cats — adorable, chaotic, and occasionally leaving you covered in mysterious substances. 


From lesson plans to naptime battles, I’ve seamlessly transitioned from educator to entertainer, with an audience of one demanding little critic.

My years in the early childhood education and care arena have armed me with an arsenal of tricks, survival hacks, and the uncanny ability to turn any situation into a teachable moment. Join me as I share the wisdom (and wit ;)) I’ve gathered along the way. 

Expect a hilarious blend of parenting wisdom, cheeky anecdotes, and the occasional “mom fail” confession. Dive into my world of snack-time negotiations, bedtime battles, and the never-ending quest for that elusive ‘mom minute.’

Get ready for a laugh-out-loud journey through the trials and triumphs of raising a tiny human while trying to maintain a shred of sanity.

So, buckle up, my fellow parents in crime! Whether you’re a veteran in the parenting trenches or a rookie just discovering the joys of sticky fingers and sleepless nights, this is your space to laugh, relate, and maybe pick up a parenting hack or two. Welcome to the hilarious chaos that is my life – where every spilled sippy cup is a badge of honour and every giggle is a victory dance.

Let the adventure begin!
