It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing, what they are wearing, what they are buying and what their Insta squares look like. Why try to be someone else when you can be you!
Small progress πŸ€™ those storage shelves on the right double as steps up to the new loft and they are a gamechanger! Plans for the weekend include lining the bedroom walls and building our bed base if all goes to plan (which is never a guarantee round here πŸ˜‚) so thats all kinds of exciting - its getting way too cold to be sleeping on the floor 🌨️
I have re packed this bag by @storksakausnz about 5 times already I wonder how many times I'll unpack and repack this bag waiting for baby .... can't wait to be able to use all these goodies.

Sitting in the carboot surround by mess, ironically none of it is hers πŸ˜‚ swapping the cars over is like moving house πŸ™ˆ I do love how the teal makes her eyes pop blue though 😍 www.indiealice.com πŸ’« #indiealice
Yesterday was definitely a day for the Beach, in between showers of rain and running under trees for cover, little miss had so much fun πŸŒ¦πŸŒžβ›± . . . . . #stylintinyhumans #nzbrandrepfeature #stylintinyhumans #microfashionnz #intsatoddler #toddlerlife #kidsofig #kiwimamalife #kariboukids #chuckleandcharm
Love a good sunrise πŸŒ…. I took this on Sunday morning, the morning I told hubby that he was in charge of the kids because I had stayed up watching The Wedding and I wanted a sleep in but the girls had other plans. One of them woke at 5:30am 😬, so we were all up by 6:30am! On a positive note, at least I got to see this beautiful sunrise πŸ˜‚ #sunrise
I have completely forgotten what it was like to have one kid? What did we do with all the extra time we must have had? 🀣 #tripdownmemorylane πŸ“Έ @wearethewatsons
Reminiscing on the amazing pics @wearethewatsons captured when I was pregnant with Harry. Isn't it weird how quickly you forget what it's like to be pregnant? Also how crazy is a woman's body!! What we are capable of is freakin incredible! πŸ’πŸ»I have so much respect and more love than ever for my body now after what it's given me 🀰

If you’d suggested to me 6 months ago that Ella would be the easiest to get to sleep instead of Ivy I would have laughed at you. Fast forward 6 months and now getting Ivy to go to sleep is THE biggest battle, one we go through every single night since we put her in a bed about a month ago 😬 I know Ella is proof that it gets easier but jees im ready for it to get easier 😫#sendhelp #whywontyousleep #sleepislife #sendsleepyvibes - - - - - - - - #terribletwos #toddler #toddlerhood #toddlerlife #21monthsold #helpme #mumlife #mummylife #kiwimum #kiwimamalife #mum #mummy #mother #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #parent #parenthood #parenting #childhood #childhoodunplugged

The eyes say a lot about a person... well, it’s the same for horses. You could have a horse with the most amazing ability, or confirmation or scope but if I don’t look into those eyes and see kindness it’s not the horse for me.

Loving some sleepy cuddles! ✨I want to say they’re rare these days but in reality she’s in this really awkward phase of wanting to drop her nap but needing a nap so that she ends up just randomly falling asleep later in the day β€” which makes bedtime fun! 😬😫 #ohwell #gottoenjoyitwhileitlasts - - - - - - - - - #babygirl #21monthsold #ivymae #toddler #toddlerhood #toddlerlife #toddlergirl #mum #mummy #mother #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #parent #parenting #parenthood #photooftheday #childhood #childhoodunplugged #kiwimum #kiwimamalife #mumofgirls #mummylife #mumlife

#mumlife would be a lot harder without these flexi tubs. I use them multiple times a day; laundry basket, soaking clothes, collecting items to put away, toy storage, the kids play in them. This morning this one helped with #poonami clean up. I find showering with a baby, alone, a little scary, they’re so slippery! Harper loved her mini tub πŸ›€ I did choose black and white tubs to match our monochrome decor though πŸ˜‰ #mumshelper #laundrylife #mumhack #betterlivingeveryone #cutieinatub #babybath #mumlife #nzmum #kiwimamalife #motherhood #sahm #stayathomemum #mumoftwo

Silverbeet & a silver set of rad wheels to play with.πŸš–πŸŒ± ~ I had the best weekend around home and doing domestic stuff. Sometimes it's those low-key weekends that you end up loving the most, right? ~ I saw THE wedding in my jammies at home, got in a run & a morning of crossfit (I can almost deadlift my body weight now - how crazy cool is that!) My arms are still totally rubbish though. Although they're perfectly fine at lifting silverbeet... πŸ˜‚ πŸ’š Gah, that strength stuff takes time to build! Meanwhile, I'm playing with the @havalnz H6. It has lots of cool features like seats that go all toasty in seconds, a massive sunroof, an amazing sound system and a big backing camera. It's fun to drive & V cool. - Rachel #eatthygreens #nzblogger #havalnz #collab
WOW! What an amazing day I had today at the Kumeu Markets. I met some wonderful people and I can't wait to go back there next month.

Today we headed into Christchurch to take the girls for a ride on the Tram, both girls fell asleep on the way in so we tiki toured around the city while they slept. We finally get to a Tram stop, find a park, get the kids out of the car and then Miss 2 1/2 throws up all over hubby 🀒. Back in the car we get and head home, not quite what we had planned but at least we all got some quiet time on the drive in to the city πŸ˜‚. . Thankfully we managed to get out of the house again this afternoon for a quick walk around our local reserve before dinner before we all got cabin fever! #sundayfunday
What a challenging weekend! Hubby has been on nights and this girl has been sick, I’m sure her teeth are moving too because she is dribbling like no tomorrow. Little Lyle has been super needy and Grace has been super naughty! FML being a Mum gets hard sometimes....but pictures like this brings me all the warm fuzzy Mum love feelings πŸ’—

Photography by Benny _______________________________________________________ I gave Benny my phone to take a photo while we were at the park today (it was only the third time he’d ever used the camera function). I figured it would be fun to see what he would capture. And he totally smashed it! He took about 7 photos, all of which were just as good as this one for me to choose from πŸ‘ŒπŸ» all perfectly still. Not blurry at all. I’ll be harnessing this skill for as long as he’s happy to be my own personal photographer 😁 #photographerinthemaking #bennyjonsphotography #olliesebastian #earlyyears #uniteinmotherhood #letthembelittle #simplychildren #documentyourdays #kiwimamalife #nzblessedmumma #magicalfamilymoments

SUNDAY MORNING chilling by the fire. Outfit choice: models own. @deer_gracexo shoes and @rascalandfriends nappies (Our absolute fave nappies. Would never use another brand now. Honestly the best nappies we have ever used.)
Sunday | Hubby is home today after three day of being away. Yay. Molly is certainly on the mend from her throat infection now that she's on antibiotics. Yay again 😁 I don't think Mollys @jellycat_official bunny has left her side the whole time she's been sick, it's looking a bit funky and I'm pretty sure it used to be white πŸ˜‚ . . . #kiwibrandreps #kiwimamalife #ig_captures #childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #brandrep #brandenthusiast #brandrepnz #brandreppin #nzbrandrepfeature #nzbrandrep #stylintinyhumans #tinystylefeatures #isabellabow #minifashion_blogger #minifashionista #littlefashionista #kidsfashiontrends #ig_fashionkiddies #toddlerstyle #toddlersofinstagram #instagramkids #toddlerlife #letthembelittle #magicofchildhood
Collecting pretties for a little miss turning ONE very soon. ( 😩😩)
Throwback to when Alex was just a few days old and had to be under the lights due to Jaundice. My Easter baby turned 5 this year and has gone from my placid little baby to a strong-willed schoolboy who's behaviour on the occasion makes me think I've failed him somehow. He can still be very sweet sometimes but sometimes his behaviour makes me want to pull my hair out. In general he's a pretty good kid and very different from his big brother, I'm just never sure if I can trust him to behave himself if we go somewhere new. #mumlife #mumblogger #kiwimamalife #middlechild #dailyparenting #lovemykids #throwback #honestthoughts #doingmybest
