So much color in this photo. This makes me so happy and excited for Spring and Summer 🌼🌻🌺☀️
Last night I was absolutely shattered and went to bed. I didn't even bother checking the time until I put my phone on silent. It was only 7.30!!! I'm telling you, kids are exhausting! 📷 by the amazing @katiefromings

Today we had a Mama & Phe day. We visited family, we went to the op shops, we visited the kitties at the pet shop (it’s not a Phe day without a visit there) & ended it with a bike & scooter ride around Kohi. Phe went hard at practicing his BMX landings - early retirement is still on the cards.
No schedule. No timeframes. The sun was shining. Today was a great day ☀️🍃🌿🌻🌳🚲🛴👌🏼
PRICELESS // I try at every opportunity to teach my babies life lessons.. you know “lessons that you carry with you for life” .. I tell my babies they can do anything they set their mind to, and if they get knocked back the first time just keep trying because eventually they will get it! like today - I think McCauley added a little more independence to his bowl, this photo is a clear example of McCauley “trying” to be a little more independent - he didn’t quite get there because he got stuck 😂 and we had a few laughs over it but the main thing was that the thought was there and he tried - I bet next time he will try a different way 😏 and thinking back on everything we did today I am also reminded to just relax and be proud - because as quick as it could be for McCauley to have just asked me to get him something to eat there would have been no teaching done for either of us. And I have to admit I do forget A LOT and can just do things because it’s easier and quicker but I’m reminded and I’m proud that my babies are trying to do things on their own. Mama will always be there to help, encourage and guide so that you my son will grow up to be an independent and great man one day - but for now, we still have a lot of learning to do, and a lot more candids for the 21st album 🤣❤️

One of the best things about being a designer is everyone you work with has different ideas, I'm always finding myself designing things I never thought I would. For example, drawing this 'Longest Drink in Town' giraffe doing a shaka prob takes the cake 🤙🏼🤙🏼😂 #kiwias
If you're into Brazilian jiu-jitsu, or you just want a t-shirt with a giraffe doing a shaka, you can purchase this bad boy over at @0.52_percent
We were only passing through but we still had to stop and have a fossick around the rocks in South Bay. Kaikoura sure is stunning on a sunny day! #kaikoura
This is from our Wellington event we held earlier in the year.
We were frantic from before the scheduled time to well after we were meant to finish.
With 4 checking bays running there were hundreds of seats checked, with everyone leaving safer than they arrived!

This little honey had us on our toes today. Sass in full force. Lucky she makes up for it with the snuggliest, most loving cuddles you could ever imagine. 🌻
When bows are made to match your outfits perfectly 😍

My three year old sass queen had the best birthday party ever! Thanks to everyone who came & to everyone helped out! 😘 Happy Sunday xx
Push it, push it reeeal good 💪 kids loved rollin like this, the front wheel...not so much.
Here’s a little tip for you - recycle your old Fractionated Coconut Oil bottles and use for your washing up liquid for when you are travelling! Could also use for shampoo, conditioner, body wash - whatever you need to take in a smaller version... perfect size!
Both kids had been good all day and then started to meltdown the moment daddy needed to go out and run an errand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
About 20 minutes later, 3.35pm, THE FUCKENING happened 🤪🤬😭 ⏰
Both were crying. Both were grabbing at me and climbing on me wanting cuddles. Both were annoyed that the other was there. The noise was deafening 🙈🙉🙊
I was overwhelmed. That time of day is when I’m at my weakest and they are at their most volatile 😴🌪
My usual reactions are cry, yell, or eat (or all 3!) None of which are great 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Today my reaction was taking control. Controlling moments of time is something Hannah from @thirty_one_days
talked about this weekend on her story. If you aren’t following her, you should, she’s all about positivity and finding happiness 🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I put on some music knowing it would help my mood. I gave the kids an early tea knowing they’re quiet when eating. While they ate I vacuumed and then tidied the kitchen knowing keeping busy would distract my mind and help me calm down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s now 5pm and they’ve eaten, bathed, brushed teeth and are in pjs ready for bed. And daddy will walk in the door and they’ll be well behaved again 😠🤣
[side note: I’m aware this can’t be the answer every time because I’ll end up with a clean house but very fat kids 😆] Quote taken from @katieinthekitchen

Effortless sun protection with our super comfy UPF 50+ Santorini Suntop 😎
I’ve got some exciting news for you later on today. What do you think it is?
Somedays I really just want to feel sorry myself, being in hospital away from my Hubby and Baby, not knowing when I will leave.. but I also have so much to be grateful for, my amazing friends and family that have been so supportive, helping Myself and Ben with Poppy. Ben stepping up to full time Dada while I'm out of action. I could complain about the crappy hospital food but you know I am actually so grateful our country has this level of care for Mamas and the their babies, and that this service is free... we are so blessed. The sun is shining, babys happy moving around.. it's just a waiting game and test of my minds strength to remain positive.
Feat new @drlibby
book the beauty guide reminding me to have gratitude every day thanks @kea3068

1 year ago I purchased this (expensive) skateboard for Phoenix. 1 year ago I pictured a future Ryan Sheckler & an early retirement.
Phoenix never uses this skateboard 👍🏼
