My little poser just got her first tooth! She was her happy self but she was chewing on everything the last few days and now I know why! I wonder if the rest will be this easy (probably not!)
Today we made the most of some morning sunshine and went to an event in the park with friends. Miss M was super happy coming home with her buzzy bee balloon courtesy of @comvita_nz. Thanks for having us! :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #comvita #kiwimum #mumlifenz #nzsmallbusiness #nzmumsinbusiness #supportlocalnz #wenetworknz #wenetworknzvip #kiwimamalife #nzmum #supportnzbusiness #toddlerlife #kiwikids #LittleGiantsKidsStore #HappyLittleGiants #LittleGiantsNZ
NAPPY STASH / I didn’t use many cloth nappies last year - low energy with three under five really didn’t give me any impetus to make my washing pile any larger! Have been using a few lately, even just one a day makes a difference to the landfill, right 👊🌏. . Most of these I bought second hand. The thought of using second hand nappies would have grossed me out pre-kids. But! How your mindset changes when budget and the environment come into it! Learning about the right cloth nappy strip cleaning method helped too 😊. Such a learning curve that was! Ever thankful to The Nappy Lady @waste_free_with_kate for the super helpful workshops. . #clothnappies #stashshot #clothstash #ecoparenting #ecoliving #reduce #secondhand #mumlife #kiwimamalife #lifewithlittles #honestmotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram
Mango soap, yes please! #soapgirl #sneakpeek
Our Kawakawa Repair is a great all over balm, but if I had to describe it, I'd say "it's an organic, intensive healing balm to help soothe and repair dry, irritated and sensitive skin. Perfect for skin prone to eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis."⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #frankieapothecary #eczema #ecemarelief #psoriasis #dermatitis #itchyskin #kawakawa #naturalliving #naturalhealing #maorihealing #maorihealingplants #powerofplants #naturalskincare #kiwimama #kiwimamalife #eczemanz #kiwimum #eczemarelief #eczemababy #eczemahelp
I’ve caught the kids cold but little sass pants here is feeling much better. ✨
D U N G A R E E S - We love sharing the story behind the garments on www.childer.co.nz. This week we're digging dungarees. These stripy numbers are one of a few instore and we think they're pretty bang on! (Link in bio.) This got us thinking - what's the story behind the dungaree? We did a little digging and found some cool facts about these super hardwearing, practical gems - hop on over to our Facebook page to see what we learned xoxo . . . #dungarees #overalls #kidsdungarees #mum #naturalbaby #ethicalfashion #sustainableliving #organiccotton #ecofriendly #childer #childerkids #gogreen #recycle #recycledfashion #ecofashion #kidsfashion #kidsofinstagram #toddlersofinstagram #babiesofinstagram #sustainability #eco #prelovedfashion #environmentfriendly #nz #kiwimamalife #secondhandfirst #IGBabies #IGKids #BabiesOfInsta #children
My little tummy time champ, she’s really starting to enjoy it now and even pulls her legs underneath herself And pushes herself backwards. I’m so excited that she is learning new things, kinda sad that she’s growing so quick and a little bit nervous for when she starts crawling and getting into everything 🤣👶🏻🤷🏼‍♀️ #avaleigh #tummytime #happygirl #stopgrowingalready #kiwimum #kiwimamalife #4monthsold #mygirl #babygirl #daughter #cutiepie #lookatthatsmile #iloveherface
The sweet angel face of a baby who just had a tantrum because I didn't praise him when he said cat where there were no cats. . . #teethingbaby #outdoorparenting #naturalchildhood #boyandhisstick #kiwisummer #kiwimama #kiwimamalife #fuckiloveyou #littlemonster

A bit of a slow morning for me while Kian was at kindy and Edie caught up on sleep!
The bond between a wild Kaimanawa pony and a child - priceless ❤️
This little boy waltzed in my house the other day and adopted us as his new family 😍 I've notified the area and no one has claimed him so for now.. Meet CATBOY... Three year olds 😑 We've flea'd him, wormed him, fed him, loved him and next on the list is snip snip ✂️ He's blossomed with the care we've given him so I don't think he will ever want to leave. #royalty 👑 Littlebear and babybear are infatuated 😻 and so am I 😻😻 . . #littlebear #babybear #newkitten #kitty #kitten #furbaby #catsofinstagram #crazycatlady #cat #catsforlife #catsarelife #catlife #catsofig #newpet #adoptedfamily #momlife #motherhood #lifewithkids #raisingboys #parenthood #sahm #motherhoodunplugged #honestmotherhood #nzmama #kiwimamalife #dailyparenting #houseofboys #raisinggentlemen #toddlermom

Can't count the reps. Can't count how much I've loaded on the bar. Can't work out the number of sets needed to complete the reps 🤔😂😵 Obviously I'm a mathematical genius haha.

Goodbye curly locks! _______________________________________________________ Here are the before shots of Benny’s first haircut! No more curls for this little man. Our baby went in to the hairdressers and came out a big boy ☺️ Check out my stories for some of the action and a little peek at the finished product. I can’t wait to take some proper after shots tomorrow 😁 #before #firsthaircut #20monthsold #bennyjon #earlyyears #familylife #runmywildchild #littleandbrave #uniteinmotherhood #motherhood #mummasboy #childhoodunplugged #igmnz #childhoodmemories #mumswithcameras #photography #candidkids #childrenoftheworld #umh_kids #kiwikids #candidchildhood #cameramama #simplychildren #letthembelittle #clickinmoms #canon #kiwimamalife #zblessedmumma #magicalfamilymoments #photographersuc
Even though this kid is refusing to sleep and having little baby tantrums left right and centre these last few days I still can't help but be in complete awe of him. Hope you're feel better soon my little wild child. ♥♥♥ . . #kiwimum #kiwimamalife #kiwimama #sweetbabyboy #somuchlove #tantrum #wildchild #veganbaby #veganmama

Today I spent most of the day making a ham and avocado butterfly sandwich video to show you all how to use the sandwich cutters. Having never done anything like this before it was both a challenge and a laugh. It's also obvious what I ended up with for lunch today haha. Fingers crossed there will be a video to follow soon! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #kiwimum #mumlifenz #nzsmallbusiness #nzmumsinbusiness #supportlocal #wenetworknz #wenetworknzvip #kiwimamalife #nzmum #supportnzbusiness #kidsfood #funwithfood #realfoodforkids #healthykids #eattherainbow #sandwichcutter #butterflysandwich #kidsfoodideas #toddlerlife #kiwikids #LittleGiantsKidsStore #HappyLittleGiants #LittleGiantsNZ
'Smile for the camera' 😁 This girl has so much spirit (not sure where she gets it from...😂) some days it's so easy to embrace, like today.

While this little boy sleeps, I am doing final birthday preparations for his 4th birthday party next Sunday and his sister’s ‘13th Birthday Sleepover’ the following weekend. 🎉 Can’t wait to share the details with you :) My List of 3 today: • Load of Washing on ✅ • Load dishwasher ✅ • Party prep 🤫 (currently) What’s on your List of 3 today?
A few of my favourites from my long awaited @postienz order. Can’t wait to see our little lady in these #postieplusme
So much fun at the art gallery this morning. Though in truth we could have gone to our storage locker and played the piano there for an equally good time. But definitely would not have been as picturesque.
Snazzy little outfit for your wee dude (or dudette!!) We only have size 2 left in both! The Round college T is made from 100% cotton and has a lovely ribbed detailing. The Mischievous Boy shorts are made from a beautiful linen, and come in white and natural. Snap yours up as they won't be restocked! . . . . #babyfashion #onlinestore #smallbusiness #momtrepenuer #babygirl #babyboy #trendybaby #maddieandmilo #maddieandmiloboutique #toddler #toddlerfashion #kiwimamalife #mumblog #shopsmall #shopsmallnz #kmlnz #fashionkids #fashionbaby #instakids #mumswithhustle #nzmum #instamum #kiwikids #nzbloggers #nzmumtrepreneur #boymum #minimalist #neutral

Since it’s my birthday today I thought I should post a photo of myself for once! Holding one of the kids of course (I chose the slightly less wriggly one).
I think we need to stop referring to him as chaos as it’s a bit too catchy... and accurate. Chaos or not I still have alll the heart eyes for my sweetest wild child 😍
