About Me

Welcome to Mom Outnumbered

My name is Sorietha and I am glad you found my little space! It is my goal that you would be encouraged, inspired and refreshed by what you find here.  I live in the Western Cape, South Africa and in our 2nd year of homeschooling 3 of my 4 very special boys. A whole new world has opened up in the last 12 months!

Why Mom Outnumbered …

The obvious …. being the only female in the house with 5 males.
The less obvious …. all four boys are math-boffins. They are now helping and teaching each other because although I like the subject and have a good understanding of numbers, they are also teaching me a thing or two!

What this blog is about:


Parenting is not for the faint-hearted.  We all want for our kids to be responsible, hardworking and well-educated. With boys that do not fit into the square box of society, we have to learn to parent outside of the box.

Home Educating

It is still a relatively new journey for us, yet there is so much available to make this a pleasant and fun journey! I have started sharing a lot of my finds with you … It is mind-blowing how much is available for free on the World Wide Web for Homeschooling! I’m finding more and more on a daily basis. Very difficult to choose what use and what would work for my boys.

Special Needs Education

Having walked this path with my now 19-year-old and still walking it with my 11-year-old, I will share some of our journey and experiences with you.

Creativity: Crafts, recipes, etc.

I love to “play” while I learn!!! Either in the kitchen, with my paints and goodies or with my kids. Probably also why I find homeschooling fun, rather than hard work … we’re learning while having fun! I’ve done over 40 birthday parties for my boys over the last 19 years and will share some of those special moments, ideas and free printables with you!

Our Area: The Western Cape

We stay in one of the most beautiful areas of the world… I LOVE Cape Town and Table Mountain!!! I will share some ideas on where to visit and also tell you about which places to visit for some bargain shopping!

Comments, Discussions and Feedback

My hope is that this space would be a place where a community of like-minded people could gather without fear of shame or rejection. So hop in, leave a comment (found at the end of each post) and let me know what you think, how I can help and how you have been encouraged.
