In Septem­ber we cel­e­brate her­itage month, and we thought what bet­ter way to do so than to show­case our proudly South African her­itage in this is­sue? This legacy is such an im­por­tant part of who we are. Glob­al­i­sa­tion and the beau­ti­ful cul­tural melt­ing pot that is South Africa make it so easy for our chil­dren to for­get who they are and lose sight of their roots. In my home we’ve made a con­scious de­ci­sion to pass our her­itage on to our boys through lan­guage, song and the gift of read­ing. I be­lieve it is in our lan­guages that our cul­ture is pre­served – the in­dige­nous oral tra­di­tions of Africa. Lan­guage teaches them our cul­tural nu­ances while song and poetry in­stil our his­tory in a way that makes them proud to be who they are. Give the gift of her­itage to your chil­dren this month!

And of course, those who know me well will at­test to my obes­sion with mul­ti­ples. This is­sue is ded­i­cated to those moms and dads who have a dou­ble (even triple) dose of love – and all that comes with it!

We would love to hear from you. Send us your lovely pic­tures and sto­ries about rais­ing mul­ti­ples. Un­til next time...
