Before I had children, sleep was never an issue for me. In fact, it’s not something I ever really thought about. Little did I know that nearly seven years down the track, sleep would be something I’d think about (often longingly) ALL. THE. TIME.
I have a child that seemingly never shuts up, so you’d think getting him to discuss what he did at school would be easy right? Wrong! If you’re looking for ways to get your kids to talk about their day, try some of these tips and tricks we are using at our house.
Tomorrow is D Day, the start of a new school year and the beginning of the back to school chaos. Here is my basic daily routine for back to school.
Book week is almost here and like most mums, I’ve been scouring Pinterest for easy book week costumes. I’ve already shared some ideas for boys so I’ve added some girly ones here too.
Our kitchen is getting so close I can taste it! The house is total chaos with walls missing and holes in the floors but I am finally seeing an end in sight. We’ve decided on kind of a rectangle with a gap shape (sort of like an L but with a bit extra) to give […]
Confession time… I’m a bit of a pram addict. I have 3 children but have owned 8 prams in their lifetime. Yep, you read that right, EIGHT. So I guess you could say I’m well qualified to review prams, and today I’m doing just that.
With Big W’s launch of their gorgeous new Dymples bedding range I’ve styled two different neutral bedding looks for just $49.
Life at the moment is complete chaos for me. I’m 33 weeks pregnant, we’ve just moved house, we are completing some fairly significant and unplanned repairs/renovations, I’ve been sick for weeks (as have both kids) and I’m just generally exhausted with being a mum, a wife and generally keeping our home running.
With the rising cost of property, we, like many families living in capital cities in Australia, live in a small home. Our house is a duplex and similar in size to a large unit, so making the most of a small space is essential.
As many of you have noticed, I’ve been a little less active on the blog over the past couple of months. It turns out I’m not just a slacker, I’ve actually got a good excuse, and we are pretty excited…
Last year I didn’t set any New Year’s resolutions but this year I’m going in with a plan. I’ve created this free printable to help me (& you) plan our New Year resolutions. List your goals for health, home, family, work, character and more. Go on, join me!
While I’m a huge advocate for buying second hand when having a baby and not getting drawn into all the hype around the newest and greatest baby products, the one area I was never willing to compromise on was car safety.
For the past month, Mr 2 has decided that he no longer eats vegetables. When he then decided that fruit was also off the menu, I decided enough was enough and that I needed to work out a plan to get more fruits and vegetables down his gob.
This week I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of “calm”, specifically for me, keeping calm while parenting. For those of you with kids, I’m sure you can relate to days where you just want to scream at the top of your lungs “why are you doing this to me, just listen and do what you are asked to do!”
We tackled (and survived) our first camping trip with kids. Here’s what I learnt (plus an inside look at what happens when you blow a tire at 120km/hr and why you should pack mattresses).
