Swinging into the third trimester like ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ #7months #fastestpregnancyever
I wouldn't be his mama if I didn't make him put on the coat and goggles for a photo ๐Ÿ˜ I still remember feeling SO cool walking into my my first anatomy, bio and chem labs with my coat and goggles ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝ it wore off pretty quickly though when there were assignments to hand in and practicals to do ๐Ÿ˜… #welovescience there are so many cool things for kids at the Waikato museum!!!! My fave... the knitted vegetable garden! โ™ฅ๏ธ see the last photo of my sister enjoying herself in the cart... and my poor niece on the sideline ๐Ÿ˜‚ #auntywillsaveyoudarling #letthembelittle #childatplay #kmlnz
โ™ก f i n โ™ก We met our new GP today. After 15 mins I had confirmation that her behaviours and sleep patterns are not normal, two prescriptions for things we can try to help her sleep, and a referral to a paediatrician to diagnose for autism, adhd, add or sensory issues. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ we may not get a diagnosis until she is 3 but at least weโ€™re still moving in the right direction. This is the 4th doctor Iโ€™ve seen for help with sleep and the first doctor to actually listen, respond and even ask if Iโ€™m ok after two years of next to no sleep ๐Ÿ’• such a relief โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ

Never too early to start being festive, right?! Took some test shots for my Christmas photography special and now he won't take his "Kiss-miss hat" off ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜
Picking me flowers has become a regular thing when we do the school run. To start with I tried hurrying him along, telling him not to muck around.... but now we take our time. I let him pick me as many flowers as he wants because one day, he wont want to anymore - so until then I will continue to fill my pockets with daisy's & love ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿ–ค #mamasboy #littleboo #blessedwiththebest

Pregnant?? Have you packed your bag? I was in denial that I would have Sophie, and I didn't pack my bag! Then had to do it in a rush, not thinking I packed white trackies, and had to wear them straight after labour ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ. Note: they did stay white. Don't be like me, pack early, donโ€™t pack white pants and make sure you pack these hospital bag essentials. Online now!

I had to hide behind a hand puppet theatre curtain to take this photo. Then because I have the stealth of a drunk three-legged hippo, not long after I took it, he looked up and saw me and that was the end of story time. Good one, mum. #MumFail #DidItForTheGram

Been a little quiet on social media lately while we have slowly been packing up our whole lives because in 10 days, we move to TAUPO!!!

Dreaming of a life of less - less stuff, less things, less stress. But also a life of more - more experience, more time, more living. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Our society is fucked. We work our fingers to the bone, long hours, little pay, just to provide and get by. We only have this life and Iโ€™m sure once weโ€™re dead we wonโ€™t look back and think โ€œshit Iโ€™m glad I worked 70 hours a weekโ€ ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Our little family doesnโ€™t need a lot. Especially not material things. What I want is time - with my husband and my babes. Adventures and travel and exploring. Flexibility and simplicity and no societal expectations. Not fleeting moments in the morning and evening and between the babies waking up. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Is it possible in Auckland though? I donโ€™t know ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ but in the mean time we are working on a small business idea that might help us to achieve this ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Š
Spent the morning walking the Nelson airport perimeter, first time was for fun (we have done it a couple of times, but never the full loop). And the second time was to retrace our steps as brad lost his wallet ๐Ÿ™„ so Iโ€™ve spent the afternoon cancelling his cards! Happy Sunday ๐Ÿคจ
Beautiful day to be outside!

S U N D A Y is Family day ๐Ÿ–ค We're off to see my gorgeous little nephew for cuddles & Master 6 has requested we do something super fun before he heads back to school tomorrow (insert happy dance here๐Ÿ™ˆ) How's your Sunday looking? #sundayvibes #familyfirst #adventures #instagood #kmlnz
Those fitting-your-pre-baby-#2 -jeans feels ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ not quite pre-baby #1 but itโ€™s heading in the right direction. My restricted diet for Harveyโ€™s reflux has helped BUT Iโ€™m struggling to exercise. I donโ€™t seem to get a break from the kids til after H goes down, and I lack the willpower to exercise at 10pm at night! Sleep > exercise ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿคฏ how do other people fit the time in?!?
The future belongs to the curious ๐Ÿ’•

PERSONAL IDENTITY Motherhood is a new phase in life that causes a major shift in identity. I can also call it as a redefining moment. Before having Leon I was confident I would be able to continue my busy career while being a loving mother... These days, I have understood that it's better for my family if I'm not working full-time. Eventhough, I'm embracing this change and take it as an opportunity to grow, it's a bit hard to keep my personal identity. Stay-at-home Mothers your are awesome! Working Mums you are a bloody legends!!! I'm very excited to see where this path in "finding new me" will led me to #thinkingoutloud This photo was taken 5 months ago when Leon just turned 10 months. It seems like yesterday... #slowdowntimeplease
