Sometimes our sensory small worlds don’t go exactly to plan...and this one lasted all of 60 seconds 🙊 🌟 I was so excited to set up this little small world for the kids. I got out my coconut from our small world last year and used it as a snowy base. 🌟 Our beautiful new mountains and trees from @melanieshanks35 and our sweet little elves from @smallhavens were right at home in our littlte #kmartplaytray ....but somehow it all felt apart. 🌟 The kids eagerly watched from the sidelines as I quickly took some photos to share here and then they dug in. Now despite me reminding them to keep the coconut snow in the tray, the excitement was too much.... 🌟 I recorded the first few moments of play for you (swipe across to see) and that’s pretty much where it ended 😂 Lilly put coconut EVERYWHERE! So I had to pack away and we’ll try again tomorrow 😩 🌟 Sometimes our sensory play trays are out for over an hour...and other days they get a little silly and make a mess so we pack up almost as quickly as we started! 🌟 How do you structure sensory play time? Do you have any rules or is it a free for all? We often put a sheet down or head outside but I’m always saying “Keep it in the tray or we pack it away” which usually works 😂 #littlelifelonglearners_smallworlds #littlelifelonglearners_sensoryplay
Getting so close now and I am so absolutely exhausted from trying to get everyone’s orders out before Christmas.. I hope all the work I put in and all the sacrifices I make are appreciated because now all I want to do is snuggle up with this cutie and celebrate his first Christmas! . . . . . #capturingchildhood #thisjoyfulmoment #dailyparenting #documentyourdays #kidsofinsta #momlifestyle #lifeupclose #simplychildhood #thismamaloves #motherhoodalive #simplymotherhood #littlebitsoflife #curiouslittleexplorers #mumlifeisthebestlife #thesearethedays

Dinner at the Dickson’s. Pork tacos with pineapple & cucumber salsa!
Being pregnant is one of those things, that particularly towards the end of it- you feel like you have been pregnant your whole life… and then just like that… your not pregnant anymore. It is such a consuming, overwhelming and utterly amazing time in your life, and then poof its over and the next whirlwind chapter begins. Maternity sessions for some are just another thing that future mums have to tick off the list before the baby arrives, but if you stop and consider it for one second, it really is the most beautiful opportunity to celebrate being a woman and how utterly amazing your body truly is. Creating, nuturing and carrying a perfect little human life for months and months is no small feet- so enjoy every last moment of being pregnant, its such a short window of your life that you will ever be.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honestlydocumented#maternityphotographer#maternityphotographycentralcoast#mumswithcameras#centralcoastnsw#centralcoastphotographer#centralcoastfamilyphotography#lifestylephotographer#babybump#centralcoastnewbornphotographer#centralcoastmumma#our_everyday_moments#thefamilynarrative#mumswithcamera#mumsofinstagram#mumlifeisthebestlife#clickinmums#mummyandme#nswcentralcoast#ilovensw
I’m loving this weekend away; spending quality time with my daughter, collecting sea shells from the beach, smelling the flowers, watching the storms. 🏖🐚🌿☀️⛈🌺🌈 However, at times Motherhood is lonely. But that’s completely normal. Right? Isolation is a part of the full immersion of motherhood. It’s a part that doesn’t feel good at times but it, like many other parts of motherhood, is seasonal. This season calls for me to put my needs to the side and to cater to those of my child. Because let’s be honest... this season of needing me will be gone in a flash and though I miss nights out with friends, I think I’ll miss these moments more because I’ll never get these moments back ever again. So goodbye Saturdays with friends, I have a crying baby I need to go cuddle for a bit because these babies don’t keep. #Repost @thebluegrassmom • • • • • . . . . #honestmotherhood #postpartum #newbornbaby #igmum #toddlermum #magicofchildhood #mumlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #mumlife #singlemum #photographer #celebrate_childhood #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #childrenseemagic #childhoodeveryday #treasuringlittlememories #myworld

My 7 year-old's wishlist for Santa 🎅 When vacuuming, I just found this list under the coffee table..phew!

ADVENTURES // I love finding hidden gems to go and explore! Anyone who lives on the central coast hit me up with locations for the school holidays! 🙌🙌 #adventuretimewiththefam #needabeachtrolley
Well Yes 👏 but not only this time of year - I pledge all year 🙋‍♀️ I truly love the Instagram friends I have made and love supporting their online biz! We are all passionate about the products we design, make, sell ! So to help another hardworking friend with their dream by purchasing from them makes me feel good 🔆 I also love strolling the local shops from Stanwell Park to Wollongong buying from small businesses that know the importance of great customer service. Always greeted with a smile 😃 and by name - how fun is that when you walk into a shop and get a “ Hi Sheralee “ 👏👏👏 ~ ~ ~ To continue to #sharethelocallove please pop a biz you love, follow, buy from in the COMMENTS below .....
Watching these three get their faces painted was so funny. Sitting up on the big chair deciding what they wanted and then looking in the mirror 😂🤣. Harlen was going to be Santa and at the last minute decided a dog. Suddenly he loves black 🤷‍♀️ (he ate all the black jelly beans while doing a biscuit activity at the party hahaha). Brodie wanted a red shiny nose, isn’t he the cutest reindeer ❤️. Zadie was happy with anything pink and purple (which took convincing to wash off) 😝.
This morning Ella elf had a little magic trick for us 😆 ..Aaliyah had to sprinkle the elf dust over an egg and wait to let Ella work her Christmas magic!! By the time Aaliyah got home from school, the plain old egg had magically been changed into a super special chocolate Christmas Kinder Egg 😍 (Unfortunately this Mama was so overcome with excitement that I forgot to take any photos of the magical finale 🙈😂) . . . . . #christmasmagic #christmasfun #christmas2018 #magicalchristmas #christmasmiracle #christmaself #naughtyelf #naughtyelfontheshelf #elfontheshelf #elfontheshelfideas #elfonashelf #mumlife #momlyfe #mumof2 #momof2 #cameramama #motherhoodthroughinstagram #instamama #momswhoblog #bloggingmama #letthembelittle #letthembekids #webelieve #runwildmychild #raisingthefuture #mommyblog #mommyhood #mummyblogger #mumlifeisthebestlife #igmother
Beautiful girl showing off her Christmas dress 😍 I just love it so much and the great thing is, is that it’ll probably still fit her next year... at least as a shirt 😅🎄
And well done to you for being resilient as can be. You continue to discover yourself. 🤗 that’s magical✨ 📷@ thewildfeminine

You are beautiful in your own skin. I know there are a lot of mamas out there that don’t think this (believe me, I am one of them) but we all need to learn to be kind to ourselves and love the skin we are in. For what we love we pass on to our children to believe. so how will you make a difference today, tomorrow and for the future? Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are worthy and you are worthy of loving 🥰💪🏼👊 📷 @trudi_eade
I have it on good authority from at least 5 other mum friends that we have now officially passed the time of the year when the kids well and truly lose the plot. If you are seeing symptoms in your kids such as excessive whingeing, mega meltdowns for no reason and absence of any level of patience, then just remember that it’s only 11 days until Christmas. You’ve got this!
Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall. Larry Wilde
Have you seen the good in yourself and all what you do. It’s so darn hard to say the words to yourself that your a good mother. It’s your now chance to say it. ..Say it! loud and proud. ✨ The guilt, isolation the frustration, the idea of failing. Feeling like you haven’t been the mother you wanted to be. ✨ Let go of any fears and negative thoughts. Your a good mother you’re resilient, loving and caring. 💪 ✨ “We all worry and beat ourselves up over not being good enough”. 📷@honestlymommy
From the moment I was seen, I knew that I could never live without you ... #love #mumtobe #brotherandmom
