Morning routine // every morning now I get up fuss over the kid and make sure he's fed, changed, lunch packed, blah blah blah blah and all that before I start my morning routine for me. A spoon full of good bacteria fermented foods, a turmeric latte and then this 👆🏼 my fave on the go protein smoothie. Organic Pea protein by @teresacutter_healthychef with some Chia love obviously ♥️ Then when I'm at work or out and about with the kid, then is when I coffee. Mmmmm coffeeee... What's your morning routine? Anything I should add to mine? Holla at me 🙌🏼
➕MUMMY GUILT ➕
Where's all my Mumma's at!? Can anybody else relate to having moments of 'Mum guilt'!? This can come in so many different aspects on so many different occasions.
Well I've made the decision to just STOP IT! I'm committing to STOP putting that horrible pressure on myself, and just enjoy being the best Mum that I KNOW I am being.
2 days ago, my little baby girl Ava turned 6 months old. Do you want to know how HORRIBLE I felt because I didn't dress her up in a beautiful outfit, take 100 different photos to get her looking picture perfect and then post about her turning 6 months old. I started telling myself how TERRIBLE I am for not doing that for her. Because I did it for my son who is 1 1/2, how dare I not do it for my second baby (and especially because she's supposed to be my little princess). 👑
Then I remembered, the most important thing of all - Is that she is LOVED 💕. I am the Mum that did things SO DIFFERENTLY for my first baby compared to my second.
I am the Mum who sometimes forgets to cook her veggies, so I opt for a packet pouch that's in the cupboard.
I am the Mum who sometimes forgets what time she had her last bottle.
I am the Mum that doesn't have a routine, because I believe it's so much more natural that she fits in with ours.
I am the Mum who doesn't bath her children everyday because I can be 'too tired'.
I am the Mum that uses the TV at times to help for 'babysitting' just so I can get on top of things.
I am the Mum who forgets if I've even showered at the end of the day.
I am the Mum who can be so tired during the night, that using a dummy is what helps me get through.
I am the Mum who sometimes bribes my 1 1/2 year old with a 'lollie' or a treat just to get him in his car seat.💯
I am the Mum that lets the kids use the iPhone to watch Peppa The Pig 🐷
I am the Mum who justifies eating Hot chips now and then is okay because they are made from a vegetable.
I am just a Mum doing my Best!! But I WILL ALWAYS be the Mum who remembers what's important:
I tell them everyday how much 'Mummy & Daddy love them', because if we don't have Love, then we ain't got NOTHIN!!❤️💕❤️ #love#mum#truth#honesty#facts
20 weeks in vs 20 weeks out. Can't believe my baby is 20 weeks old today. I say it all the time but time really does need to just stop. 6 weeks away from 6 months which means I'm going to have to start applying for nursing positions again soon which I so don't want to do. Definitely not ready to go back yet. I can't imagine leaving my girl for that long at a time // 😭 #stopgrowing#toofast#20weeks
Rainy Day Easter Play🐰🐣💕
Hope everyone is staying safe as the remnants of Cyclone Debbie pass through! Here in Brisbane, it's an indoor kinda day. Which gave little missy the chance to try a Easter Egg Transferring Activity. 🐣I showed her how to scoop the first egg and put it into the bowl, and she took it from there. She loved transferring the eggs back and forth, working on her fine motor skills along the way. This kept her busy for over 30 mins- a lifetime in toddler town! 💜

The _ Guilty_ Mum
Im a guilty mum
Im guilty of yelling too much
Im guilty of caving for a 3rd night in a row and making nuggets and chips again for dinner
Im guilty of spending too much time doing housework and not enough playing with the boys
Im guilty of swearing aroud them
Im guilty for letting them have too much screen time
Im guilty for co-sleeping
Im guilty of having enough and locking myself in my room so i can just have some quiet for 5 minutes.
Im guilty for sending them to day care so i have 1 day a week to myself.
Im guilty for caving to what ever they are demanding during a tantrum because its just easier.
Im guilty of having a glass of wine at 2pm because the fighting hasnt stopped all day and mumma needs it
Im guilty of all these thing and im sure many many more....BUT im not sorry for any of them. Because we all do what we have to do. We choose our battles and i don't care. I know im a good mum and the fact i feel guilty about all these things proves that.
So ladies don't beat yourself up. Your doing the best you can and thats what matters. If you have to drop a few F bombs or pour yourself a second glass of wine to get through the day....Do It! Your a mum and thats the hardest damn job on the planet and you are doing great xx
Happy Birthday to my amazing mum. Seit fast 20 Jahren bist du mir Tag für Tag die beste Mutter, die ich mir hätte wünschen können. Ich vermisse dich jeden Tag und kann es kaum erwarten, dich in 119 Tagen wieder in meine Arme schließen zu können. I love you to the moon and back. 💕
Consistency is going to be a must over the coming weeks with the time change.
Following through with your usual bedtime rules and routine.
A few days of having a different bedtime routine, while adjusting to the time change could be long enough to build a new habit, which you then need to deal with.
