I love my kids determination, passion, strength and refusal to obey something that they don’t agree with. When my second daughter was about 4, I’ll never forget the look on the random boys face (who was maybe 10-ish?) when he took a bouncy ball of a little kid at the oval and made the kid cry. My daughter walked […]

(Includes reviews of the carriers I’ve used at the bottom of this post. I’m not an expert by any means… I’m learning as I go, but I thought I’d share my experience). When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I wanted to get a baby carrier. I knew nothing about them, but I knew […]

Since having our fourth child a few months ago, I’m always getting asked what it’s like to have 4 kids. So I thought I’d share my thoughts with you all 🙂 In summary… I love having 4 kids! I find it easier than it sounds… And here’s why… One Child. When I first brought my first baby […]

It’s my daughters 5th birthday tomorrow! This time 5 years ago, I’d been watching Getaway on TV and they had a segment about Petra. I got all grumpy because I’ve always wanted to visit Petra and they were showing it as I was 40 weeks & 3 days pregnant, so I thought it’d be ages […]

A sleep deprived Mum, a newborn, a 6 year old, a 4 year old and a 2 year old were driving home from the shops, when… …It sounds like it could be the start of a joke doesn’t it? As that sleep deprived Mum, it’s so important for me to be able to see the […]

Bub is now 5 weeks old I had plans for today. I was actually kinda organised too! Everyone was dressed and ready… Then I heard a noise from bub. She’s done a nappy. A big one by the sound of it. I go to change her nappy and realise it’s somehow shot out the side/top […]

Celebrating the differences… Introverts and Extroverts

I find that the older I get, the more ok I am with being an introvert 🙂 I love talking with friends, but I prefer one on one in depth conversations over being in a large group… I don’t feel the need to be loud and entertaining to feel accepted… I love reading and quiet […]

We went to Bunbury tonight to get a few things from the shops. Before we left, I told our four year old daughter to get ready and wash her hands and face and put some shoes on so she was ready to go. She did that, but on the way out to the car, she […]

*Dimples (4) hears her tummy rumble* Dimples: “Mum, can I please have some food? My tummy is rumbling.” Me: “Yep, as soon as we get home.” Dimples: *to me* “ok. Thanks!” Dimples: *to her tummy* “It’s ok buddy, Mummy’s gonna get me some food and I’m gonna feed ya.” Where do kids come up with […]
