How on earth do you single mum's or FIFO wives do this every night!? Sid showers with me when Dean's at work purely so it's one less thing I have to do when he's in bed before I crash on the lounge! And tonight, Aubrey decided he wanted some attention too! So here we are in all our glory... Sid literally locked in the shower playing because I didn't want the stress of trying to dry and dress him quickly (never gunna happen!) And me, sitting on the toilet feeding Aubrey so I can make sure Sid doesn't touch the taps or decide jumping on the wet floor might be fun to try! I never thought I'd be the mum taking photos like this, but when these things happen I want a momento... maybe so when I've lost the plot I can figure out why!? 😂 Anyway, to all the Mumma's doing dinner/bath/bed on their own tonight... cheers to us! 🥂 Now let's sit on our butts and enjoy the Bachelorette finale and a whole tub of ice cream to ourselves 😁


Perfectly said @lrknost 💛


In a field full of dandelions with these beautiful girls.... how can you not blow one!


Enjoying our time together on holidays and even though they aren’t as relaxing as they use to be it’s been awesome making new memories. We haven’t spent this much time together since Christmas! #holidaydairies


✋ STOP PARENT SHAMING ✋ How many times must be people be told to stop this disgusting act of parent shaming!! Today I experienced this as I raced inside to pay for my petrol while both boys were asleep. My car was at the very first pump, all windows were cracked and the sun roof was open, I even waited until there was no line in the servo to make sure I didn’t take long. As I’m standing there paying I looked out the window to see a lady standing near my car. As I approached her I asked if I could help her with something? She proceeded to tell me that she was watching my kids 😒 I replied “excuse me”? Completely in shock. She then told me that this is what is wrong with this generation and people so young shouldn’t be having babies 🤔🤔 I admit I wasn’t comfortable doing what I did but I had no choice. The fact is you should not judge anyone unless of course the obvious evidence is there that a child is being abused or neglected, even then there are other avenues that need to be taken. Just be kind, it’s not hard!!

After thinking I was smashing this whole breastfeeding thing, we hit a small bump in the road 🚧 so I’m doing mixed feeding (formula and expressed milk plus nursing) until my little Iggy girl starts gaining some serious weight and my milk sorts itself out 🐄 In the meantime I’ve been putting my pump and this bottle cleaner to good use this week! This cleaner is seriously amazing, it properly cleans the bottles and pump parts so that they really *feel* clean. And it’s such a good price?? Every product I’ve tried from @oneecostep has been spot on and so affordable, I’m really loving it!


More gratitude today! 🥰 For all the blessings, for health, for family and joy. These two beautiful people, father and son, are celebrating their trip around the sun today. You read that correctly, BOTH of them! 🥳🥳 • • I can’t believe it has only been six years ago that our Mr Happy arrived on his dad’s birthday. What a gift! • • He has requested a unicorn party. Actually, he has been obsessed with the idea of a unicorn party the day after he turned 5. So that is what he will get this weekend. It will also be his first real birthday party. Before we just had small celebrations. I am curious how this will turn out for him and how he will handle it. A lot of front-loading is happening to leave nothing as a surprise. • • I do feel sad we don’t have family around. It is hard to have to miss out on that, especially as a child on your birthday. All he has is us. So even though we have a 1 gift policy from us for the kids, this year I went overboard a little bit and got him some extra things to compensate. Lol, the extra gifts I got him are a dr Suess horse book and a whoopie cushion. 🤣 True mommy guilt right there. Am I the only one experiencing this? . . . . . . . . . . . #birthdayboys #sharedbirthday #expatfamily #livingabroad autismawareness #autismmom #autismacceptance #autismspeaks #mkbkids #0101moms #denverblogger #denverbloggersclub #indonesia #thisisus #ourcandidlife #largefamily #raisingboys #wildandfreechildren #bigfamilylife #lovewhatmatters #documentyourdays #motherhoodinspired #heaventhrumylens #mytinymoments #magicofchildhood #documentingmotherhood #parenthood_moments #littlepiecesofchildhood #momofboys #boymomlife #parenthood_moments

I love narrating and writing stories. Specially if I know that it is something that has actually happened. I usually write things I see or experience myself. However the other week I was completely bowled over when someone asked me to write their story for them. . A letter from happy parent to their precious son on how he was very much wanted and hence adopted. I have never enjoyed writing anything more than I enjoyed writing this one. So honoured and humbled that the lucky parents of this adorable little boy chose me to be a tiny part of their joy. It has been a privilege. . With their permission I am sharing a bit of their story. Hope you enjoy :) . P. S Names and places have been changed to protect their privacy. . . Dearest Rayyan, . 5 years ago, Mahnoor, Suha, Mama and Baba decided they wanted a baby in the house. A lovely little boy to love and to hold, with twinkly eyes and itty bitty toes. We prayed to Allah ta'ala to send you to us. We wanted to hug you and make a fuss. . That night as everyone slept, an angel came in Mama's dreams and said, "congratulations! Your wish has been granted. Allah is sending you the boy you all have wanted." . He showed Mama your tiny face all pink and scrunched up as can be. She fell in love and wept with joy, wanting to hold you for eternity. . We followed the path the angel had shown ,flew down to Lahore to meet you and make you our own. . Dadi Jaan and Khala jaani welcomed us with open arms, and took us to see the bundle of joy who had a smile full of charm. . We knew right then that you were made for us as we were a family made for you. Our hearts were bursting with love that was strong and mighty for you. We held your little finger and promised right there and then, to love you and protect you and give you the world that is your due. . Lots of love Mama, Baba, M & S . #birthstories #adoptionstories #adoption #babyboys #writersofinstagram #ig_pakistan #honestmotherhood #children #love #parenting #parenthood_moments #writing #storytelling #babiesofinstagram #kids_of_our_world #family

Have you ever tiptoed into your baby’s room to check on them and they look so unbelievably sweet that your heart swells with happiness and you need to capture the moment? And then as you turn to quietly leave the room, feeling so content and filled with love, you trip over the loudest toy possible sending it flying into a wall and proceed to wake that baby up? No, just me?! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 Swipe to see that even though I woke him, he was still happy to see me! 😉 . . . @carters #lovelysquares #cutebaby #joyfulmamas #babyboy #momofmany #mamasboy #motherhood #momentslikethese #babylove #babiesofinstagram #bigfamilylife #photooftheday #candidchildhood #reallife #babyfever #littleandbrave #bigfamily #cameramama #thehappynow #parenthood_moments #lifewellcaptured #carters #momswithcameras #letthembelittle #motherhoodiscolorful #sleepingbaby #cartersbaby #sweetbaby

Jonah’s new big boy bedding came and it couldn’t be cuter. I have only purchased bedding from Pottery Barn & Crate & kids for them but this from @hearthandhandmagnolia is probably a favorite. It’s soft and no toxic gunk.


*Portrait of a Sleeping Boy* You guys- I’ve been in SUCH a slump ever since we got home from our trip. Honestly, the time zone/change thing totally kicked our butts and the extra load of “make up” school work, activities, and looming holiday to-do lists certainly didn’t help the transition much either. We are all so exhausted & sooo very ready for it to be Friday already. In a totally unrelated note- I’ve gotten a few questions about Max being in a big boy bed. I’d say I would write a post about the transition but it all just kind of happened organically when we moved. We put him down for a nap in the bed the day we moved in (before we had the crib set up) & it went so well we just wound up tossing the crib altogether. He sleeps SO much better (& longer!) all sprawled out in his big bed...although it hurts my mama heart that I never got the chance to document his last night in a crib. 💔 If you have any questions leave them below & I’ll try to answer them!


-PARENTHOOD— ———————————————————— When do kids become political? My kid randomly recounts to me a conversation he had with his friend. I am surprised of how much he knows and more precisely, how clear he is about his opinions while fully listening to his friend’s opinion. I don’t know many adults who can have such conversations without aggravating each other. ——————- I don’t watch tv news, but read the newspaper so that I can free my mind from unnecessary news clogging... So my child’s opinion are solely his from what he has gathered in his world. ———————————————————— :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: #parenting #parenthood #parenthood_moments #kids #boys #ethnickids #blackkids #politics

When your whole world changes for the better. ❤️ When I started this business almost 2 years ago, I did not expect for so many people that were apart of my past to come into my present and future. It is truly amazing to catch up with so many familiar faces!


In honor of this sweet little one turning ONE tomorrow here are a few of my favorite new born photos of our precious myra💕 . can’t believe myra is already turning one!😭 feels like time just flew by! tomorrow she will be considered a toddler and not a baby anymore! I don’t know if I’m ready for that😭 but no matter how old she gets she will ALWAYS be my baby!💕


Back to reality and feeling a little Zombie like today after late night flight 😴 32 loads of washing later and chilling on the aircon 👌 #backtoreality


… Beep beep, who got the keys to the Jeep? Vroom! I'm driving to the beach, top down, loud sounds, see my peeps Give them pounds, now look who it be (who it be) It be me me me and Timothy (me me!)…


I would write something really knowledgeable about marriage and dating your spouse and how to have a successful marriage but I don’t really feel qualified on the topic 😅 lately we’ve been trying the marriage upward spiral that @arrowsandbow talks about and it’s been great! He’s been bringing me home flowers and making me dinner and I’ve felt a lot less irritated about him being at school 15 hours a day! If you have any marriage advice you’d like to share, I would love for you to comment it below!


This little guy was officially 1 month old on the 10th and we are back to our monthly updates! While so much has happened in this month it’s also flown right by. It’s been a month full of adjusting to newborn life again and what life as a family of 4 looks like (so far being on time for anything has been a challenge 😜). It’s also been a month full of recovering, sleep deprivation, and a whole lot of love! Overall Zane is a very chill little guy, loves his soother, has experienced lots of loving on from his older brother, and enjoys going on outings. It’s safe to say Zane is the perfect addition to our family and we are all very much in love with him 💙. #zanenate #onemonthold


Just sharing to show proof that she does smile. She’s overall a happy little human. Some days she’s my favorite, needed to be said 🤷🏽‍♀️ . . . #clickmagazine #MagicOfChildhood #momtogs #babiesofig #candidchildhood #the_sugar_jar #boldemotionalcolorful #parenthood_moments


At least there is ice cream!🍦🍨🤷🏻‍♀️ What’s your least favorite part of pregnancy? My flip of a switch moodiness is probably mine. (It’s definitely my husband’s.) And interestingly enough, I’ve found that regular ice cream messes with my emotional state even more. So I love me some good dairy free ice cream like this @so_delicious cookie dough! 😍 This is not an ad. Just passionate about not getting moodier with dairy filled ice cream! If you ever find your emotions heightened strangely, look at what you ate the night before. You may be fascinated at what you find! Also, thanks to @ahintofmintdesigns. You inspired this photo 2 years ago, and I’ve been stoked about it ever since! #pregnancy #pregnancyhormones


Confession. I hate playing pretend with the kids. I cringe every time. Board games, crafts, baking cookies just because; Im here for it. Pretending to be a dinosaur 🙃😩🥴 Pass. Thankfully Brett is really good at getting into charater and playing pretend. ❤️❤️


Coogee, Sydney. This is the beach of my earliest childhood memories. I was born in Bronte (another beach suburb close by) but then we lived in Coogee until I was 4. Just in little rented apartments. I was Estelle’s age & this place was my playground. One of my earliest memories is of the sparkles I saw on the ocean each day. On Monday we were told schools in the Hunter/Newcastle area would be closed on Tuesday due to a forecast of ‘catastrophic’ bush fire conditions. I’m a city girl. Some places I’ve lived in Sydney include: The eastern beaches, Mascot, the heart of Sydney city (The Rocks), the inner West (Drummoyne), Gladesville & Putney. Most places had the ocean or harbour or a river/bay at the end of our street & were close to the CBD. In Newcastle we have the best of both worlds too: city & beaches on our doorstep. The big difference to anywhere I’ve lived is the amount of bushland in the vicinity. Years ago when we first suggested giving Newcastle a try, Ava shut that down “No way! There’s been bush fires in Newcastle!” (she’d studied Newcastle fires for a school project). We convinced her fires were unlikely.. we moved.. her school has been closed twice since we got here due to bush fires 😬. One was in Winter. Our home isn’t in a high risk area, but in rare catastrophic conditions everywhere is at risk. This week I had cautionary alerts popping up on my phone in red letters, also one of my brothers lives in Northern NSW in national park territory where the fires are currently heading towards his home. I was checking the ‘fires near me’ app to check on the fires near my children’s school, to see how close they were to my brother’s home, to see if friends were OK, feeling for the firefighters who must be exhausted beyond belief. Our kids were hearing words like ‘state of emergency’ & ‘catastrophic conditions’ & ‘homes & lives will be lost’. I could feel the anxiety creeping in. Late Monday night we decided to take a trip to Sydney. While we’ve been enjoying the element of our surrounds feeling new & unfamiliar like they do on a holiday, when things started to feel overly foreign, I needed to be somewhere familiar. #selfcare


I am SO excited about being able to offer this course to families. This course is about giving your child strong sleep habits right from the beginning. There is #nocrying with the Love n' Snuggles sleep learning method. If you want a gentle approach to helping your child sleep, you have come to the right place. This course is a one stop shop, be all, end all guide to newborn, baby, toddler, preschooler and school age child SLEEP! That's how valuable this course is. You will use it again and again. This investment in your child's (and your own) sleep is currently on promotion until the end of 2019


Oh, Hobbs babes. Your family is so special to me🌟❤️


In honor of #BirthControlDay, I figured it was time to share my story... . . I was a pretty smart student with awesome grades, took AP classes, played sports, had a ton of friends, and thought I'd be going to university right out of high school. Fact is that I could've, but I wasn't taking care of myself nor did I have easy access to birth control. . . . I was in an on again, off again relationship with Jacob's dad for 7 years before getting pregnant with him at 19, then becoming a single mom at 20. All those hopes, dreams, and expectations went out the window. At 23 I decided I still wanted to pursue a degree so I enrolled in an online college so I can continue to work full-time to provide for my son. . . . At 24 I became a step-mom to Aubrey when James and I got together, and at 26 we welcomed our surprise baby Alani into the world. As much as I love my life and ADORE my children, being a mom, wife, student, and employee full-time has not been easy. It's taken me twice as long to finish college. If I knew then how hard it would've been, I definitely would've planned better and taken care of myself. But women's healthcare wasn't easy to come by for me at the time. . . . Now thanks to the digital age and advances in women’s healthcare, I've discovered an app called @nurxapp to help plan the rest of our future. Nurx offers access to affordable healthcare nationwide to those with or without insurance. They also provide health screening kits to take tests at home making women's health care convenient, affordable, and judgement free. . . . We haven't decided if we will be adding another tiny soul to our family just yet, but thanks to Nurx we can plan ahead for our future. Click the link in my bio for more info. . . . What did your journey to motherhood look like? #ad #ThxBirthControl


This video was shown to us at one of the @singandsignencinitas Priority Parenting Classes, and I'm glad I found it on their page! We are naturally tend to jump in and help our kids with their struggles and challenges. However, sometime waiting and sitting back are more beneficial to our children. Letting them to figure the way out by themselves, helps to develop their independence, problem solving skills, and self-confidence. Reposted from: @singandsignencinitas . Capable. Waiting is required😉 . “.......................”(say nothing) “Plan your move” “Keep searching” “You’ll figure that out” “What’s another way?” . Encouraging phrases (or quiet presence) that build beliefs of “I am Capable”— from our Parents (&Caleb🎉) Teaching Parents comments at last nights Priority Parenting Workshop. . It can be hard for us to watch our perception of struggle. But every time wait a bit we’re allowing problem solving skills to develop, which brings along curiosity and accomplishment. .
