The Secret's In The Sauce.




Once upon a time there was a little girl. She lived in a land far, far away.
She dreamed of sunshine and a life less ordinary.

One day she met her Prince and they moved to a land of sunny skies.
Life was exciting. Full of travel, job satisfaction and endless possibilities.
Eventually, the girl and her Prince grew lonely, so they had two babies.

Now the girl's life was full of joy and love.
It was also full of diapers, sleepless nights, constant snack making,
endless laundry, guilt, worry and drama.

The girl was very happy but felt something was missing in her life. One day a friend told her about blogging.
It was a match made in heaven.


Today the girl is the featured blogger at The Secret's In The Sauce a fabulous community of bloggers.




Welcome Sitstas!
I hope you'll stay and read my little haven of sanity in the otherwise all consuming world of parenting.


I asked my readers for their favorite posts - here's what they chose:

Diving In


Camp Tales - Part One


Second Kid Syndrome

Haste Ye Back!

  3. There once was a girl who lived in the vast Wasteland and blogged all her foolishness so she would stop telling people off all the time. And although my tale is far more ordinary than yours, I LOVE IT! Happy SITs Day!

    and they all lived happily ever after, except for that rotten girl who was always telling people off.

    ~The End

  22. So great to find your blog via SITS. I read your blurb about your book on the side of your site and it sounds fantastic. I do not have children but have often wondered why there aren't more women out there telling it like it is. Good luck getting it published. Believe me I would love to get paid for my writing.

  51. You should discuss the great cosmic secret that two year olds are as bad as they get. Two year olds are angels compared to three year old. Why do we do that to each other? It's wrong to let someone believe that things will get easier at three... just wrong.
