I can't keep this a secret any longer! I am beyond excited to be bringing 6 of my favourite NZ parenting experts into an EXPERT PANEL here at The Learning Hub.
Together they are answering ALL our questions about how to raise happy and healthy kids in a sometimes crazy and overwhelming world.
Have you ever wondered... 'Why is my child so angry? Why is my child so hyperactive? How can I get my child to eat healthier food? How can I calm my child? How can I help my child to feel better about themselves?
I know I have, 😳 and that's why I can't wait to introduce our expert panel over the next week! 😀
Growing up I was so scared of dogs and even today the old heart still races when a dog runs at me... or barks 😅😅😅.
I love that TJ and Jordan are so confident around animals, particularly dogs and that’s hugely thanks to their fur cousins, Josie and Ted 🐶🐾❤️ #cousins#furfriends#doglife
Just me & my girl today. We sung & danced in the car together, girl knows how to get her groove on. She looped in and out of my legs “Peekaboo!”. I managed to tie her little mullet into a loose pony without too much of a struggle. I marvelled at how much I adore watching her wander around on tippy toes, and then settle on some steps. The steps, any steps, are always the favourite place to take a load off. We went swimming too. Only in the big pool for this little one, flinging her tiny limbs everywhere like an octopus and commanding me to get the “Ball! Ball! Ball!” Or to catch her while she jumped from the ledge. It wasn’t just me smiling & giggling with you today little one. You bring light to many around you too xxx
Working shopping it like a boss. Today I was one of the lucky folk who got to attend an AMAZING workshop run by @emilyspicerstuart. Yes, I got to step out from behind the computer (gasp!) and actually talk to real people. This workshop was all about planning made easy peasy lemon squeezy. Basically, a no fluff, no BS goal setting guide to getting sh*t done. And boy oh boy, that's exactly what Emily got us to do. Motivation levels are high people so look out!! And if you haven't yet checked out the super amazing Emily, get across and take a looksie. She's all kinds of awesome. 2018 is off to a BRILLIANT start!!
Things that happen to Anastasia:when I was wrapping presents this Christmas I got so absorbed once that instead of cutting the ribbon, I cut a hole in my dress✌ Today I took three days eggs from home to my colleague at work and one (guess what) broke down in the plastic lunch box and leaked all over my gym bag and gym gear. Not taking them damn eggs to work ever again 😎//Вещи,которые случаются со мной: на Рождество так увлеклась упаковкой подарков, что вместо ленты прорезала дыру в платье ✌ Сегодня несла коллеге на работу три яйца из дома, одно (ну, конечно же) разбилось в пластиковом контейнере, пролилось на всю мою спортивную форму и полотенце. Всё, никаких больше яиц в спортивных сумках😎.
Doing the waterfall walk today with tom was one of thee coolest things we have done together in a long time.. this walk is a must do if you are ever in hanmer springs.. it's a 2.5 hour walk (we did in 1 hour😏) through beech forest to a 41 metre high dog stream waterfall 😍 its a👏🏻m👏🏻a👏🏻z👏🏻i👏🏻n👏🏻g!!!!
We are soooo lucky that we have these amazing walks/tracks in Nz and don't have to worry about getting mauled by a bear or a mountain cat/ or sucked to death by leaches or snakes if we go into the waterfall (this is just what tom and were rattling on to each other about as we were walking back😂.... anyway i fucking stood on a tiny bird on the way back just as I was rattling onto tom about nature, poor little bugger was stunned (the bird), I wanted to make him a tiny carry stretcher that I could've made from leaves and twigs 😬but tom told me to put him down and let him recover on his own😒anyway this is a must this walk, it's sooooo beautiful at the end!! Definitely going to do this again.. and again..and again 😍
Check out these fork and spoon sets. They are perfect for when you are out at meal time with your little giant. The handy travel case keeps the fork and spoon clean instead of it getting lost in the bottom of their (or your) bag. There are five different colour combinations to choose from. See them all here: http://bit.ly/2mC0RIF
Peace ✌🏻Love 💙& Diggers !! Sums this kid up at the mo. Much as this snap shows though, the peace is few and far between (mainly when he sleeps !) Phew ! It’s been one of those days. Boys are FULL ON. I did not appreciate my girls and how low-key they were when they were little. . .we could actually have home days ! Not with this one though, most mornings we are up and gone before 9am or it’s cray-cray town for us both. Hoping he may take liking to some form of TV/movie in the near future or it could be one very long winter. . .with a newborn to boot 😳🙏🏻📺
These cooler bags are so versatile and pretty funky! Take them to the beach, use them for your daily lunch or as a snack bag for your toddler. Why not be trendy and have convenience, all in one! #NakedBaby
One of my favourite teething products is the Neckerchew teething bib! With it’s attached teether there is no more dropped or lost teethers and it’s always there for when baby needs to chomp those teething pains away 👶👍

Can you see the flower in Poppies hair ?? 🌼 We has another beautiful & fun night in Samara. We met this gorgeous guy, who made flowers, grasshoppers and more all from the coconut tree leaves 🌴 (he had been taught by his mum) and all right in front of us 🌼. The girls got flower each and loved watching him make them, he even took the time to teach Poppie a simple weave. Best of all, he was such a kind & genuine guy 💛💛💛 #allyouneedislove#thatsmile#travelwithkids#travelkids

So lucky to have you pick me as your mama 😍

Reducing waste and scoring free garden mulch is as easy as keeping the old Xmas tree 🌲
We have used some of the branches as stakes to hold up the capsicum 🌿
We dried it out by just popping it in the backyard in a sunny spot. The dried out needles won’t leech nitrogen out of the soil or change the pH of the soil like green ones do.

🌟Dining out with a toddler for the first time🌟I felt bad that we all hadn't been out for dinner together sooner. I had these images of how it would go, the three of us, eating, enjoying each other's company 👪 Dare I say a civilised picture. Maybe J could try some of my imagined ice cream sundae 🍨And then reality. We forgot her sippy cup. How were we going to entertain her until her meal came? Chasing her around Dennys and tantrums when we had to ferry her away from other diners. Letting her play with water from a glass but having to hold onto the glass to prevent a huge spill or injury (see story...this actually killed time). She was fine once her Junior Bangers and Mash arrived. She loved it! But we decided against dessert. How would we have occupied her? Once she was finished we were up and ready to go. We survived but don't know how soon we'll venture back out 😂

Trying something new as an adult feels soooo uncomfortable. Embrace the inner child and set about learning new things with curiosity and kindness instead of judgment and anxiety ✌🏼👌🏼 #wisewordsoftheday
