Sa nouvelle passion pour ses pieds 😍 Ce petit pull de papy qui a juste l’air parfait pour une journée glaciale comme aujourd’hui... j’en rêve! . Bon on reprend la même journée qu’hier et on recommence 😳 tjrs clouée au lit! Archie qui reste avec moi normalement le vendredi est quand même à la crèche car impossible pour moi de m’en occuper et surtout de ne pas le contaminer! Heureusement que mon chers et tendre a pris ses dispositions pour conduire et récupérer les enfants... par contre niveau compassion, on repassera hein 😂 il fuit les microbes comme la peste donc je peux toujours me brosser pour un petit geste tendre ou un bisous sur le front... Mais qu’est ce que je l’aime quand même!

Rarely am I away from them and yet every so often I look up and I’m genuinely amazed by how much they’ve grown. Living outside, often barefoot, will do that, I guess. These summer days are dictated by the sun which, in Victoria, means a 9pm bedtime (feeling grateful that I don’t have to deal with a school bell next week because that would not be pretty). Our travel days usually involve a rest stop in a little town where we op shop, visit the local park and grab a coffee which often makes me wonder if we’re just doing a park/cafe tour of Australia. Right now these two are scootering around the caravan park with a gaggle of kids; friends for a few days before we move on to our next stop 🚌🔆🌿

The waves were calling. Well, the blue bottles more so! Actually it had nothing to do with the sea, and more to do with floor sanding and wet paint. SO, we’ve escaped our house, and landed back here. There’s definitely worse places you could wash up. Cheers to the MIL for once again accommodating this motley crew. As a thanks I bought her a bottle of nice champagne, and because I’m just a generally kick ass broad, I wouldn’t let her drink it alone. So yeah, there’s that as well 🥂🥂🥂 Bubbles n blue bottles to wash of the week? Well ok, if you insist 😘 (Inika looks surly - but I’m pretty sure she’s just cranky we reefed her away from the smorgasbord- ie sand 🤷🏽‍♀️🙄🤷🏽‍♀️🙄) #momlifestyle #thatsdarling #momlifeisthebestlife #momblog #motherhoodunplugged #eternalmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #motherhoodrising #joyfulmamas #bestofmom #abmlifeiscolorful #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #liveauthentic #clickinmoms #mybeautifulmess #bedeeplyrooted #inbeautyandchaos #our_everyday_moments #dailyparenting #letthembelittle #momswithcameras #motherhoodsimplified #habitandhome #nestlingly #ohheymamas #ig_motherhood

Someone looks very happy with her colourful hair! 🌈 It’s crazy how quiet the place is when they’re not here! Cameron’s loved it 😂 Feeling better today plus we’ve got our new smart meters being fitted 🎉 Every year so far I’ve had to have new ones because I never stick with one company... I’m always looking for a cheaper deal! I’ve gone from paying £120 a month to £60-£90 a month instead. Money that’s better in my pocket! 💥 👊🏻 ⠀⠀ Ps. That’s not a dirty mirror, Ava’s leggings are covered in stars and planets 😂😜

Buongiorno ig😊 I bimbi sono a scuola, il soggiorno pulito ed in ordine, mi aspetta una giornata piena, ma mi piace godermelo un po’ così perché nonostante odi tante cose( e finalmente a fine mese andremo all’ikea per il nuovo divano😁) questo soggiorno rappresenta il fulcro della mia casa, ha visto i miei bimbi crescere, sorridere, piangere, correre e farsi male, litigare ed abbracciarsi per fare pace..nonostante odi tante cose, lo amo infinitamente!

Poor darling boy is teething hard core. It’s so awful to see him so sad. Did anyone else have bad teethers? Zara wasn’t too bad, there were only a few teeth that really upset her.

The Other Mother. She may seem like she has everything under control, all the time. She may seem like she’s put together, all the time. She may seem like multitasking is a breeze, all the time. She may seem like she’s such an optimistic person, all the time. She may seem like she’s always organised, all the time. She may seem like she handles it, all the time. She may seem like she’s perfect, all the time. But she’s not, she’s really not, it’s just not possible, for her or anyone else. It’s not that she’s being fake, inauthentic or trying to hide behind something. It’s just that she doesn’t like to talk about it, she’s a private person, and wants to focus on the positive and process the negative, in her own way. She cries, she yells, she feels guilt, she judges herself and hurts just like we do, she just does it privately, because she feels safe there and that’s her choice. We are all imperfect mothers, striving to be perfect mothers for our children. We all have a different way of expressing ourselves just as we did as young girls and women, before we transformed into mothers. It isn’t necessary for us to know the details of everyone’s journey. We all entered this hood at different times when we became mothers. Let’s not compare someone’s middle to our beginning, or maybe don't compare at all, because we don't know the full story. . ‘Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we’re all in this together.’ (Brene Brown) Gemma Douglas, The Motherhood Project. .

✨ f o u r m o n t h s ✨ Aidan, you are complete sunshine, full of light and so much personality already (especially now that we seem to be out of the colicky phase!🤞🎉). Now you spend most of your day smiling, giggling, and babbling at mommy and daddy and it seriously makes this mama’s heart melt. You’re rolling to your left, from your back to your front, rocking tummy time like a champ, getting better neck control, discovering your hands and feet, grabbing anything and everything, kicking up a storm, and -finally- sleeping! While days are non-stop and can sometimes feel long with teething and reflux woes, the weeks are short and they’re passing too quickly. These early days, weeks, months are fleeting, and I am doing my best to soak up every inch of your littleness, slow down and remain present. You’re in the 50th percentile for weight at 15.5lbs and in the 95th percentile (!!) for height at 27 inches and are pure perfection. Your eyes are so full of wonderment and it’s so beautiful to see you discovering the beauty in everything. We just need time to slow down a little! You are our greatest adventure and we love you past the stars, Aidan Michael. 💫

Dziewczyny pomóżcie. Młody od ponad 2 tygodni ma kaszel. Kiedy myślałam, że już przechodzi, pogorszyło się. Tutaj oczywiście lekarze nie widzą problemu, mimo to dziś jeszcze raz chce go osluchać . O co chce się was jednak pytać, to jak używacie NebBud do inhalacji? Wczoraj do nas przyszedł i dziś chce zastosować, ale wolę się dopytać waszego doświadczenia, ono nigdy nie zawodzi 🙏 . . . . . #snowland #wintermagic #motherhoodsimplified #motheranddaughtergoals #motherhoodthroughig #mamaisyn #synekmamusi #justbaby #babyboy #lovemyson #wintermagic #happymom #igmoms #maternityshoot #kochammojedzieci #jestembojestes #instamateczka #polacywuk

MOM SUPPORT A while back we went to soft play and as I was standing in queue to order our coffee with George, he turned to the lady behind us and said “this is MY mom” (yes he made it clear that I am his mom & he sounded a bit angry). I smiled and then awkwardly continued with my order. The lovely lady then asked his age & then continue to tell me that I should be proud that he says that. That it is so important that my 2 and a half year old (at that point) wants everyone to know that I am his mom. And that he feels how loved he is and that is why he shows everyone that he loves me as well. It made me feel like a new person. I felt like I am doing something right, that he is indeed proud and so should I. She completely changed the way I look at those things and I pay so much more attention to those small things I took for granted. I want to thank her for showing support to me, for making me feel special. We as moms forget how important it is to show support to each other. But a simple smile, talk or a reassurance can make such a huge difference to someone’s else day or journey, don’t you think?

Her husband heard our convo about it and said it's not a big deal and that when he's much older, he will decide if he wants it or not. Im just wondering oh, do other mums here have uncircumcised sons? Won't getting circumcised at an older age be more like a surgery??? I know he's not my son but im really worried.

Attimi di vita rubati affinché rimangano in un "sempre nostalgico presente". Respiriamo a pieni polmoni ognuno di questi attimi e, ne facciamo riserva perché siano ninfa per le nostre giornate. Oggi è un giorno speciale per te. Il mio augurio è che le tue mani possano contenere sempre un po' di questa dolcezza, fragilità e forza che nello stesso momento questa carezza racchiude. • • • #instafather #fatherandson #dadandson #family #instamamma #thewomoms #womoms   #instamama #nonsolomamma #notonlymama #fotooftheday #amoredimamma #vscobaby #vscokids #momlife #motherhoodsimplified #uniteinmotherhood #earlymomentsmatter

I am so grateful that these two munchkins are back in school and I don't have to play ref to their kicking and screaming antics for a couple of hours a day. Ron is totally settled into his new class and and enjoying Stage 5 (Grade R). And then there's Lu. My baby is so out of his comfort zone. He's in a new school (Ron's school) and he is not too happy about it. Drop off is hard but he seems to settle and enjoy his day once we've said our goodbyes. Hopefully drop off will be a bit easier next week and the teacher won't have to peel him off of us 😥

Have other mums and dads downloaded the #LEGOLife for their kids? These guys are big Lego fans and Joshua loves playing with his Lego game alongside his real Lego! It has so many safety features for kids, so its just a safe place for him to play! He can create his own Avatar and comment in lego emoticons! How cool is that? @lego #ad

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller — This quote gets me every time we return from a new place. There’s a bit of magic in traveling, and I’m so glad I get to share it with my boys.

Es Viernes y el cuerpo lo sabe😜 . . . Esa cara es total. Define a la perfección lo bichito que es. Mi pequeña #monstera Lucho por ella para que no sea devorada por mis gatas. Alguna idea para que no mordisqueen las hojas? He probado hasta con una pistolita d bolas blanditas😅 me pongo royo francotirador en mi salón de casa 😂😂pero lo único que consigo es que vaya como una loca desquiciada a jugar con la pelotita. Cuando una planta entra en mi casa. Me compadezco de ella. Son atacadas sin piedad😅 Que tengáis un feliz Viernes! Por aquí hoy toca limpieza. De esas que duran horas y horas... y acaba sucio y desordenado todo otra vez en 5 minutos😔😅 Ahí es donde se nota y se siente que hay mucha vida en nuestro hogar😊💕 Buenos Días!!!

So it’s been 2 weeks since we bought the instant pot. I have been using it regularly and here are some of my thoughts: 1️⃣ Contrary to its name, an instant pot is not instantaneous! If you need something right away, maybe go for the microwave. 😄 2️⃣ It is always a good idea to read the manual before using the appliance. 📖 3️⃣ Don’t do a quick release when there are lots of liquid inside the pot. It will spew the soup everywhere on the floor + cabinets. You will then have to pull out the stove & spend about 30 minutes cleaning up the hot mess. 🤪 Btw, this can totally be avoided if you followed {2}. 4️⃣ I love that I don’t have to “babysit” the pot while it’s pressure cooking. Nothing will spill over and no need to occasionally stir. 5️⃣ With proper planning, the instant pot does save you time and who wouldn’t want some extra free time? 🕑

My Birth Story! . Part 2: I remember waking up at 2am on the 16th with some short, sharp pains. This wasn’t surprising seeing as my waters had broken hours before. I decided to get up and go to the bathroom. Thank god I did because the moment I stepped on the tiles of our ensuite it was like Niagara Falls. This was it. IT WAS SHOWTIME! It was 2.30am and I needed to be at the hospital by 7am anyway so we decided to just head in early. I called them just to let them know we were on our way. I had a quick shower and Hubby and I jumped in the car. We woke Mum as we left and told her to get to ready. Rich would come back and get her once I was settled in. We were only 15 mins from the hospital. The drive to the hospital was very quiet. I think Rich and I were both just trying to let it all sink in. You wait such a long time for this moment then suddenly it’s here. We got to the hospital at 3.30am. I was taken straight into my birthing suite. I put my play list on, set up my salt lamp signed a few forms and was asked if I’d like to keep my placenta. Hell YES I would!! I really wanted to get it encapsulated to help with my recovery. I remember reading an article about the process and after doing extensive research I really wanted to make sure I got it done. I had heard through the grapevine that some hospitals don’t even offer you your placenta as it’s classed as biohazardous (pfffft please 🙄) so I was extra surprised when the question was actually on my admission form. My Mum and Sister got all of that organised while I was in labour. One less thing I needed to worry about. I gotta say…It was such a great decision to get them made up. They were incredible. .
