Un finde para celebrar la Amistad! Siempre he pensado que la amistad es la manifestación más grande amor que existe, es el amor sin ninguna condición, por eso de ellos he aprendido que no se trata de que nos quieran cómo somos, sino a pesar de lo que somos ❤️🤝❤️ #luckytohavethem
About to start my few days off with a double Katie filled day! Looking forward to spending time with my friends. Hopefully getting my smile back and being myself again which I seem to have lost the last few days! #selfie#friends#dayout#twokaties#luckytohavethem

It’s been a soul searching kind of week for us in terms of parenting.
Maybe because 3 year olds especially push buttons that leave you questioning yourself at times 🤔. I think I add extra pressure on myself as it’s been my job for many years to support other parents, carers and professionals with the big emotions and behaviours of little people.
And now I have 2 mini-me’s of my own, surely I should be able to “get it right”? I’m still not sure of the latter.
A lady has just approached me while in a quirky little cafe full of retired ramblers, a pretty middle class bunch, I’d say. I was on pins as my 3 year old was loudly singing her version of “The Greatest Showman” soundtrack whilst asking the waitress (also quite loudly)for Cheerios for lunch & questioning me about “why is it so quiet in here, mummy?”. The littlest was raspberry blowing out rice cakes and littering the floor with gooey half chewed food whilst trumping almost in tune with “This is Me”. 🎶
Anxious & embarrassed that I was ruining everyone else’s “quiet” lunch, I was doing my best to juggle their needs to be playful, innocent and inquisitive with the courteousness the other diners deserved.
The lady leant over to me and gave me the most loveliest compliments about my 2 girls, I could have cried. I think her words came at the right time, in the right week.
Yes, I’ve certainly got my lottery win with my 2 puddings - I just need to start “spending” & enjoying it more than I do already ❤️. Thankyou, lady. The reality check I needed.
“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room on your heart.” -Winnie The Pooh. This silly old bear got a lot of things right. These three tiny humans started out so tiny! Like I’ve bought heavier pieces of meat they were so tiny, but man did they fill my heart and push oh so many things over to take up their enormous space. No I didn’t stop loving other people or things to love them, my love grew. Something I don’t think you quiet understand until you become a parent to your second child. I remember looking at Cadence and thinking I love him so much, how could I ever love another child this much, but with each addition my heart grew and so did our family. Such amazing little humans, I’m so lucky and proud to have them.
Even though they aren’t on Instagram I would like to wish my parents a happy 41 years of marriage!!!! Y’all are some of the best parents a kid could have. Thank you for all y’all do it really means a lot to me and so happy y’all found each other. I’m very blessed I was raised by two amazing ppl who are my heroes in life. I love you both and enjoy y’alls special day!!!! #amazingparents#41yearstogether#luckytohavethem#throwbackweddingpic#thanksmomanddad

I didn't make the artwork but I did produce the sitter 😁 This is my son, painted by a national treasure and friend Jocelyn Maughn. I've put the 50c coin beside so you can see her wonderful abilities even in miniature.
