🥒🥕Mummy & Daughter Lunch!🥕🥒
I’m really enjoying weaning my Lil Pudding! I thought her brother was a greedy bub but this one is on a next level 😋 She will take whatever you’re eating straight out of your hand and try to munch it 🙈
I don’t usually share food but I’ll make exceptions for these kidlets 🤷🏾♀️🤣Hope you’re all having a great Monday 💜
I’ve been thinking.
It’s funny how things seem so challenging when you’re in the midst of it but after you’ve cleared the upheaval of change, you can see all the positives more clearly.
I’ve mentioned before, that when my son went from a 2-3 hour nap each day to nothing 😱😭, it totally threw me.
Denial. Resistance. Anger. Desperation.
And that was just me.
But now that I’ve accepted the change and found a new routine for my work and other responsibilities, I’m actually enjoying it.
It’s great to be able to get more done in the day or to be able to stay out and enjoy ourselves for longer without having to get home for a nap.
It’s great that my son now falls asleep in less than 10mins at bedtime.
It’s great that we’ve found a new rhythm and we have grown together through this.
That’s just one example. But whatever you’re going through right now, it will eventually pass and you’ll see the positives more clearly once you ride out the change.
Hang in there!
Your body always knows.
Your body is always communicating with you.
Your body is a barometer for truth.
Come back to sensation, to your sensuality.
To get out of a funk, get funky with a beat girlfriend 🤘🏼 Move in any way that feels good, in any way that honours your curves and your roundness, circle and sway till it all melts away ✌🏼💃🏽
How we’re all feeling this morning after a few weeks away. Trouble is actually lying in Monster’s ‘trampoline park’. And yes she is still in her pyjamas. I’ve had a bout of post holiday of CBA* so we’ve stayed home this morning. Usually I avoid this at all costs as the house is small & there’s no escape from the shouting & screaming. I usually favour getting out of the house first thing so we can chill in the afternoon. I realise this is totally dictated by my anxiety and fear of dealing with their tantrums in public in the afternoon when the tiredness seeps in. But you know what? They’ve been happily pottering round the house most of the morning, entertaining themselves. In theory I could’ve even sat down, but there’s the small issue of five piles of washing to do. Might consider doing nothing again soon. #donothing#postholiday#tantrumcity
Ahh finally it’s my turn to get ready for bed and get into my pjs 🙌🏻 I am so tired tonight! E took just over an hour to go to sleep 😴 after just wanting to play with me and smother me in kisses 😘 and cuddles 🤗 Sweet yes! ❤️ Helpful for getting him to sleep, no! 😂 So I’ve just put a frozen pizza slice in the oven and have the block set up and ready to press play, after I have a quick shower 🚿 .
SWIPE to see a video of little E and I tonight. He fell asleep 12 minutes later! 💜💗

@yogitea #quoteoftheday . ✨love is where compassion prevails & kindness rules✨
Love is having empathy for the others heart & being super kind to them.
It’s easy to live in our own story & forget how important it is to put on another’s shoes for a while to see how their world is.
How do they meet the world?
what’s their story?
I Have to do this a lot with my children as their worlds are so loaded with expectations of what I am as a Mother it’s impossible to live up to.
I feel like I constantly get it wrong, yet I’m doing my best....what’s that all about.
One day they will have compassion for my world, however until that day I will keep smiling, doing my best & muttering Ffs to every bit of anger I take from them. The Ffs under my breath make it bareable to swallow ha ✌️#motherhoodmoments#honestmotherhood
Entre elle et moi tout a commencé par une lettre tapée à l’ordinateur sur ma pause déjeuner. J’aurais aimé ne pas avoir à lui écrire ce jour-là à vrai dire mais parfois, souvent même, c’est la vie qui décide où elle souhaite nous mener et avec qui nous aurons rendez-vous.
À la fin de cette lettre était écrit quelque chose comme « et si t’as besoin, j’suis là. C’est con et c’est pas grand chose mais j’te jure j’suis là ». Elle, elle m’a répondu « viens ».
Trois mois après cette lettre, la vie semble avoir elle aussi tenu sa promesse; la même qu’on s’était faite avec Léa finalement...
« T’as vu, j’suis venue et j’suis là pour toi ».
Et si vous ne savez pas comment reconnaître une belle personne, regardez le ciel. Chez Léa, le ciel avait beaucoup trop d’étoiles...

4:00am wake up and we all made it to the airport in perfect timing and in one piece. Our airplane obsessed little human gets to actually be awake to see them this time. It was so great being home to surprise Sarah for her 30th birthday and to see Charlie’s dad for his. BUT, we’re extra exhausted and so ready to be home. See ya later Mass.

Waking up to Monday like....
Currently dealing with 2 little humans who decided to wake early today .... like really early. Yes. Sleep Consultant babies have sleep hiccups too, but knowing the tools to get them back on track gives me peace of mind 🤗
Hoping everyone had a well-rested weekend and wishing everyone a great start to the week! 😄
It sounds so silly, even as I write, but I very rarely do something impromptu for others. My excuse? As a mother to two young children, working part time, running a business, household chores and travelling because we live at the end of the earth to everything, there simply just isn’t time. I very rarely have any sort of down time, and honestly if I did, I’d prefer to wash my hair more than once a week, go to the toilet alone or read a book!! Does this make me a bad person?! 🙈🙊 HOWEVER, today was a good day, all the stars aligned, and I did something for someone very dear to me, who didn’t ask me too and doesn’t even know I did it - it took hardly any time and effort at all, but I know it will make a big difference to them. It feels nice to do something for others doesn’t it, I should do this more often.... 😊 X 📷 @thebearcubclub
‘Say cheeeeeese’ 😁 love the fake smile Mia 😂👍🏻. It’s catch up Monday (again) so we have just had the morning at the park. We don’t have many plans for this afternoon so I’m hoping I will use my time wisely and get bits done 👌🏼.
Proud to be part of the #getlippy campaign ❤️ Nearly 1 in 2 women have experienced a mental health problem; I am one of them 🙋🏾♀️ 10 years ago, as a medical student, I battled generalised anxiety disorder; I had it all- sleepless nights, a brain that wouldn’t switch off, panic attacks, a constant sense of doom that “something” bad would happen. I eventually asked for help from my mum, GP, friends. To this day I look back on that patch of life afraid to ever go back 😳 I’m very open about my experience because it’s given me huge amounts of empathy for my patients- I understand mental health from a unique perspective. As a GP I treat women with anxiety, depression (including post natal), body image issues and eating disorders all the time. One of the absolute joys of my job is seeing someone finally break the silence, walk into my consulting room ready to tell their story and get some help- I love knowing that I can provide support through prescribing exercise/sleep hygiene/meditation, involving a psychologist or psychiatrist and sometimes using medication. It isn’t a weakness to seek help. It shouldn’t be associated with shame or feelings of inadequacy (something by patients often mention to me). We are all human. We are all vulnerable. We should all feel empowered to seek help, to turn to someone, anyone for help. So here I am with lipstick, light box and stethoscope in hand- sure I was running a touch late but I slap dashed this lippy on for this awesome campaign 😍😘 Never mind that Miss S said “what’s on your face Mummy? It’s orange” when I picked her up after work and one of my patients said “gees you never wear lipstick”- totally worth it! 😂 •

What!? Is it Monday already? It’s a good thing we don’t believe in #bluemonday 😉My sidekick decided to wear her 🌈 skirt and magic 👟 for the occasion. ‘Cos Monday is just another day to have fun and live new adventures 🦄
My mum found this photo of me the other day. I'm about 8 years old there. Good timing with the Ekka being on.
All I can do now is look at my eyes and compare them to Greyson's. If he got anything from me it's the eyes (quote: "You have your mother's eyes, Greyson") #hpnerd
A tiny motherhood moment on a Sunday: she saw a guava on our table and thought that it was an apple. She kept saying "apple" and "yum yum" (which means food) and I said it wasn't an apple, it's a guava. It took me about 10 minutes to teach her how to say it properly, she ended saying something like "bwava" which is pretty close.
And.. for the first time when I asked her to stand up on this wall for a picture, she didn't ran off. She did what she was told and so, here's a photo of her looking very much pleased with herself because she did her mom a favor. It was such an amazing birthday week and it's one of the best weekends we've ever had! 💕 #imomsohard#samanthanoelle
