#ThrowbackThursday Vote for your Idol - It's 2002!!
The year is 2002 and I am completely star struck! The very first Idols aired in South Africa and all I wanted was for Heinz Winckler to win! I remember voting from our house phone until the operator replied "You have reached your maximum votes for this number" and I also remember my mom saying she will send me this month's telephone bill. But for me it was worth it because we love hearing him sing!
Here he is singing his hit song "Once in a lifetime" - it is SA's first IDOL!
Who will ever forget his version of "Drops of Jupiter" *sigh*

Mommy Matters - Stop domestic violence & abuse - there is help!!
The 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign challenges South Africans to declare a stop to violence against women and children. The campaign kicks off on 25 November and runs until 10 December. However we need to stand up against abuse every day! In Mommy Matters I speak to Yolandi Boshoff a legal advisor and qualified attorney for Legal and Tax to find out what we can do to report abuse and to stand up for ourselves and others. Listen to my discussion with her here.
Statistics show that 1 in 3 women experience emotional abuse, every 36 seconds a woman is raped in South Africa.Nearly 2,500 women have been murdered in South Africa every year and this is by their own husbands or boyfriends. Even worse is the fact that more so many girls experience sexual violence before the age of 18 and so many young children are victims of abuse and violence when one or both parents were too irresponsible or negligent to care for them.
Whether you’re a victim or someone who is witnessing a friend, neighbor or family member experiencing violence or abuse, Legal and Tax are always available to advise. Phone them on 0860 587 587 or e-mail info@legalandtax.co.za There are many non-profit organisations who voluntarily work to help people in these situations. Child Line, The Teddy Bear Clinic, POWA whom we just formed a partnership with to help their survivors, Operation Bobby Bear, to name but a few.
There is help out there, don’t be a victim. Now the festive season is upon us and abuse and violence automatically increase significantly. Don’t be scared, get the help you need. Encourage silent female victims to challenge abuse, and ensure that they get help. Report child abuse to the police immediately, and encourage children to report bullying behaviour to school authorities.Lastly, seek help if you are emotionally, physically or sexually abused and call Stop Gender Based Violence helpline on 0800 150 150.

#ThrowbackThursday - He was a sk8ter boi
By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16 she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million. In 2002, when she was 17 years old, she entered the music industry with her debut album Let Go, becoming one of the most popular pop punk artists, a reason she earned her reputation of a "pop punk princess".
Since her professional debut she has sold more than 30 million albums and over 50 million singles worldwide. In 2008, she introduced her clothing line, Abbey Dawn, and in 2009, she released her first perfume, Black Star, which was followed by her second perfume, Forbidden Rose, in 2010 and her third perfume, Wild Rose, in 2011.
She married Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger in 2013.
In 1999, she won a radio contest to perform with fellow Canadian singer Shania Twain at the Corel Centre in Ottawa, before an audience of 20,000 people. They sang "What Made You Say That", and Lavigne told Twain that she was going to be "a famous singer".
We love singing along to Kelly Clarkson’s hit song from 2004 "Breakaway" – but did you know it was written by Avril Lavigne and Matthew Gerard.
We go back to 2002 with this punk rocker song – Sk8ter Boi

Avril leads a very private life and worried her fans over the weekend when she revealed that she's been absent from the public eye recently due to "health issues." "I feel bad because I haven't been able to say anything to the fans to let them know why I have been absent," Avril wrote. "I'm torn as I'm quite private. I'm not feeling well. I'm having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers."
After the hashtags #GetWellSoonAvril and #PrayForAvril appeared on Twitter, Avril thanked her fans Sunday. Avril was last spotted in September, celebrating her 30th birthday in Las Vegas with close friends.

Mommy Matters - Creative Christmas crafts :)
Keep the little ones busy this holiday by encouraging them to get creative. Here are 2 creative Christmas trees you can easily let them make. The idea was found on Alison McDonald's blog - she is a mom who doesn't mind if her house is covered in paint.
Bubble Wrap Christmas Tree
You will need some bubble wrap, paint, painter’s tape, paint brushes , heavy paper or large cardboard (paper grocery bags are perfect), a pencil and scissors.
Start by taping the bubble wrap to the work surface with the painter’s tape.
Next paint the bubble wrap with green. Next add the lights colors. Let kids decide which colors they want, this helps with colour recognition too.
Draw some trees on the paper/cardboard and cut out.
Press the paper into the wrap and peel back carefully.
Let dry and cut out the tree shape for your toddler.
Recycled Christmas tree
You will need a brown grocery bag (or cardboard), some magazines, scissors, glue and a marker. Start looking through the magazines/newspapers for green things, you want the kids to have a variety of green to choose from, it’s what makes the collage so cool. Cut them out.
To help the little ones rip out pages that have green on them before starting the activity, and they can then cut out the actual picture. Older kids can search for the pages themselves. Toddlers may get frustrated very fast, so do this step for them, or be prepared to do it with them.
Draw or have your child draw the outline of a Christmas tree on the brown paper bag or on cardboard of their choice. Make it nice and big.
Have your child color the tree- skip this step with kids that will be able to cover the whole tree, this fills in the gaps well with the little guys though, and they have fun!
Start gluing the cut out green pieces on the tree. Show little ones that you want the green side facing out. They can also be creative and make Christmas trees in a variety of colours, they don’t necessarily have to be green.
Keep adding glue,and pieces of magazine. Don’t worry if all the corners are not glued down, they will roll up and give the tree some texture.
Draw a star in the corner.Find gold and yellow pictures in your catalog and cut out.
Glue onto the star shape. Let dry. Cut both the tree and the star out . For older kids have them add on ornaments or a Christmas message cut from the magazine’s text.
