REALITY CHECK: Do you ever open your kitchen cupboards, look at the mess and think, I'm failing? Do you ever see those mums on Instagram, meal prepping or un-boxing their meal deliveries and think, I should do better? Do you ever click on a photo, see another mum looking flawless and think, I'm less than worthy? STOP! Just stop. This is Instagram. A world of fake and flawless. Even those who preach reality are only showing you only 1% if their lives. They too have cupboards overflowing with take out menus, spare batteries and mismatched Tupperware lids. They too serve up eggs on toast or maggie noddles for the 3rd time that week. And that flawless photo? She most likely had a make up artist, a hairdresser OR freeking spare moment to put herself together. If you catch yourself comparing, just take a moment to remind yourself of this. We are all exhausted. We are all using far too much dry shampoo. We all love a great Kmart bargain. We all have leg hair comparable to a wooly mammoth. We all have a trashed houses covered in toys, biscuit and unknown substances smooshed into the carpet. We all do our best. And your best is PERFECTION in this ordinary mums eyes!
P.S took this photo after a long night, long week and long year with Teddy. May your coffee be strong today mumma! ☕
Little handsome. Stop growing please! 😍
To celebrate graduating the next level in swim class, we brought Alex to her favourite restaurant Boston Pizza (she has expensive taste). Apparently this has been the best day ever and we haven’t even gotten to the ice cream 🍦 .
You may have noticed we’ve disappeared the last few weeks. We were taking some time out for some much needed family time.
What a fab few weeks it’s been!!! An @havenofficial holiday to Somerset, meeting the lovely @kath_andkidzz and @mcgarry_adventures
Then a nice week at home......not doing much just having a good clear out and getting ready to go back to work in a few weeks! (I will give a proper knee update soon!) It’s been amazing but we are back!! What have I missed?
What have you all been up to the past few weeks!
I promise I will share more of our @havenofficial experience too and post a full review!

Friday after work we packed a picnic and went to the splash pad & park until bed. Finished the night off with ice cream, obviously 🍦
Swipe for the “ice cream dance” 🤣
I don’t want my daughter to follow in my foot steps. I want her to walk beside me and go even further than I could have ever dreamed 👣 🔮
We went to a Woodie Guthrie tribute concert at Fruitlands today. Harold had a fun time having a special day with just Mom and Grandma! It was pretty hot in the sun but there were lots of dandelions to pick and poke Grandma with. As usual he was incredible with the clapping after each song!
1️⃣4️⃣ months old today! The past month was a big one for Ryder! His walking really took off (he took his first big sequence of steps in our local library which made my book-loving heart soar), he seems to cut new teeth every other day (he’s up to 16... maybe 17... not sure because he hates when I try to count them 🤓) and he continues to ignore toys in favor of basically everything else in our house. This kid is seriously into EVERYTHING and keeps us on our toes! 👀 He’s a water baby through and through 💦, loves his big brother so much, is obsessed with Sadie 🐶 (a love that’s unrequited 😆), smiles so big when he attempts to play soccer ⚽️ and thinks being outside and exploring is the best thing ever. ☀️ His default mood continues to be happy and we love this energetic boy so much!
