EVENING EVERYONE!!!! 💛 Can you believe this time next week will be christmas day?! 🎄 I can't believe how quickly it has come around!!! This year we are having dinner at home just the 4 of us! Once we have opened presents and been to visit family we will be coming home and locking the front door behind us! The curtains will be closed and our pyjamas will be on and I can't wait to have some much needed quality time with all of my boys.! What are everyone's plans for christmas day this year?

I’m so in love with these two little humans. After a brief bout with PND with Isla and generally feeling out of my depth, I decided to take preventative measures against depression during and after my second pregnancy. And my experience is so much better this time. I think there’s still a huge taboo around mothers showing weakness but just by being honest the healing process already begins! These two make me feel like I could do anything 💪🏻😍🌹 #daughters#sisters#PND#postpartum#PPD#Baby#mumoftwo#mumofgirls#agegapsisters#christmasfilter
Being healthy isn’t about being on a diet or restricting yourself. Its not about the next quick fit or fad diet. It’s about making small simple changes over time to get yourself into healthier habits that will benefit your body and mind... for ever!
Slow down and learn how to love and nourish your bod ✌🏻💪🏻💫
My girl is full of big emotions at the moment. Everything is a drama and she plays out every scene to show stopping perfection. Key incidents which have upset her tonight include having a limit put on the amount of bath salts in her bath (but I want the water to be blue mummy!), Teddy telling her that her apple was his even though she was actually eating it, the discovery that there were no more oranges, having to tidy her selection of dressing up hats away, not being allowed juice with tea, and the much fought over pink bunny towell being in the washing machine.

I finished reading scummy mummies yesterday and there is a little story about ‘the fear'. When I had just had Oliver the fear was very real for me. I remember saying to nathan after a few days of being home, that I felt like I was just waiting for someone to come and take Oliver away, like he wasn’t really mine and I was just baby sitting him. There was also the other common fears, checking he was breathing all the time, waking up in a panic to check on him just in case he had made a sound and I didn’t hear it. Of course after the first year I had got over all this and I would say I’m not a panicy mum and I’m hardened to bumps, scrapes and illness.
So when number two came around I didn’t think I would have ‘the fear'. Oh was I wrong. This time it was worse! How is that even possible? I’ve done it all before, I know what I’m doing, I know what’s coming. But this time it was completely different. It started way before birth. From being a few weeks pregnant I couldn’t sleep, I just felt terrified I would lose this baby, I was having nightmares, I felt like something had already gone wrong. After my first scan I could see baby was there, heart beating, but from then on I was panicking I couldn’t feel him move. It’s like my mind was convinced that I couldn’t have two healthy babies and there had to be something wrong with number two. It’s so scary and totally comes from no where. Mum paranoia is the worst! Again this all wore off quickly and I have got two healthy babies to enjoy. This little experience really made me realise how easily having children could effect a mum's mental health too, it's hard work physically, emotionally and mentally being in charge of growing and keeping a little life.
We finally have a very content and sleepy Florence after days of teething 😍
The past few days have been rough I wont lie but at least theres a light at the very end of the teething tunnel 💕
My experience has given me ideas for my first blog which I will hopefully have completed this week 😊...every cloud and all that?
Summer breakfast for my girls. It’s officially school holidays and I can’t believe I am the mama of a year 1 student! I love school holiday sleep ins and lazy breakfasts while listening to cicadas🦗☀️
This word's a bit of me now as I plan more of my Home Education journey with my daughter. Although there's more than two feelings going on in my head 🤣 But I know they will all come together to help us both successfully forge ahead 😁
