What a glorious morning at the Bloominโ€™ Family fun day at Kodja place in #kojonup ! Bring the kids down for a gorgeous day out and be sure to come say hello!
When I was little, I used to watch my mom cook and wonder how she just knew. She didnโ€™t even have to taste the food to know it needed more of something - straight up witchcraft if you would have asked the 8 year old me! ๐Ÿ˜ . Fast forward and here I am smelling the food to see if itโ€™s balanced in flavor ๐Ÿ˜ thatโ€™s one thing Iโ€™m grateful for... my mom can cook! And I was in the kitchen with her learning (well half the time I was stealing tostones acting like I was helping) ๐Ÿคฃ . #nowmydaughterdoesit #ihavetobuyextraplatanos #confessions lol . . #memorylane #gratefulforher #bestmomever ๐Ÿ’• #tostones #cookingfromscratchisthebest #familytraditions #beinglatina #momlife #mamilife #honestmotherhood #parenthoodunplugged #honestmomconfessions #momtribe
~oh that bottom lip~ When you want to keep playing but you are so tired and itโ€™s all to hard. Sometimes we just want to keep on going but our bodies have other ideas.

I'm a day late, but Happy Fall! ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿฌ This is the best season, but I'm biased - my husband and I were both born on Halloween. Small world, right? So, needless to say, we take our enjoyment of this particular holiday pretty seriously. Be sure to check back this month and next for some autumn- and Halloween-themed posts! (We made those toilet paper roll bats this afternoon. Big Bean loved gluing on the googly eyes ๐Ÿคช)

So it turns out, we werenโ€™t meant to end our vacation feeling all glowy and relaxed. The little guy and I have been pretty sick with gastro this week.

Hugs with my girls, there's nothing better! I've had a thoroughly productive Sunday and the wallpaper in our bedroom is now gone and been replaced with this beautiful blue. I'm so in love with this shade - so much so I'm going to use the rest of the tin in the dining room. Now I just need to figure out what to hang above the bed! #letsstayinbed #bluebedroom #meandmine

My husband absolutely detest the weeks/months count. He says Charlotte is 1... I'm always explaining to him WHY you count in months before 2 years of age. Funny thing when he got reprimanded at work for not following medical advice he conveniently had a 15 month old and 9 month pregnant wife. I laughed so hard ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿคฃ... After two there's no need to count in months 'Karen' no reason at all. #Repost @averageparentproblems ใƒปใƒปใƒป There is no excuse for this kind of crap. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ #averageparentproblems @mommyshorts . . . . #momlife #momhumor #motherhood #parenting #parentingmemes #parenthoodunplugged #dadlife

Her first official musical! Shrek was like the first movie Mila ever sat through when she was pretty close to 2, and any time we offer a movie she always requests Shrek. She was a bit confused at the beginning with the characters not quite looking the same but the accents and voices were awesome and the story line was amazingly crafted. #musical #shrekjnr #MilaMcJ #createyourlife #naturalhealth #essentialoils #holistichealth #kidsofinsta #unicornmoms #mumlife #greenliving #perthwellness #longweekend #perthisok #sundays #culturedkids #parenthoodunplugged #shrek #kidsmusical #stirling

Flashback 3 years ago when I just discovered baby-wearing and it was an absolute game-changer for me! โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ..โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Chloe was an unsettled bub for the whole of fourth trimester and this was the only thing that worked!โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ..โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € I joined the @babywearerswa Facebook group and started to learn about the fantastic benefits of baby-wearing!โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ..โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € One thing I do wish I had known about was that you could have a free demo and consult with people like the lovely Alyce from @babymumma_Perth and find a carrier that suited you! โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ..โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € While I loved my Hug-a-Bub it would have been awesome to try others.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ..โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € So if youโ€™re in Perth and considering giving baby-wearing a go, get in touch with Alyce, she really knows her stuff!โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ..โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ..โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ..โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #sp #babywearing #bwwa #babywearingforthewin #fourthtrimester #mamahacks #mamatips #perthmama #wamums #aussiemums #perthmum #perthmums #perthgirlbosses #perthbossbabes #supportlocal #supportsmallbizwa #attachmentparenting #consciousparenting #naturalparenting #naturalmumswa #livingwholeheartedly #mumssupportingmums #perthmidwife #perthnaturalhealth #perthwellness #perthisok #parenthoodunplugged #babysleep #perthkids #pregnantinperth

Some serious cousin love โค๏ธ By popular request - why lots of parents are getting a chicken pox booster shot for their children ๐Ÿ” โ€ข In Australia all children get a MMRV vaccine at 18 months- this contains protection against varicella which is chicken pox. A single dose of the chicken pox vaccine prevents 85% of cases of varicella whereas adding a booster dose can provide up to 95% protection. Chicken pox is highly contagious and can have severe complications including pneumonia and a brain infection called encephalitis. Most cases of chicken pox occur in children under 5 years old- Miss S has the second booster dose last year. What many patients donโ€™t realise is that after chicken pox infection the virus lies dormant in spinal nerve roots and it can reactivate with stress/illness/immune issues - and cause shingles. Preventing chicken pox with vaccination is not only in the interests of preventing chicken pox (and itโ€™s complications) but also for preventing shingles ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ Thatโ€™s the booster dose explained in a nutshell ๐Ÿฅœ IF you are considering the second dose for your child- you need to pay for the second dose (itโ€™s not government funded) and chat to tour GP about timing this around other vaccines because it is a live vaccine ๐Ÿ’‰ Tag a parent who might find this helpful ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ โ€ข โ€ข #thewholesomedoctor #health #healthtip #healthtips #healthylifestyle #healthykids #kidshealth #chickenpox #immunisation #vaccination #vaccinations #vaccineswork #doctor #doctorsofinstagram #doctorlife #cousinlove #toddlerlife #toddlermum #honestmotherhood #honestparenthood #parenthoodunplugged #motherhoodunplugged #mumlife #medicine #marriedtomedicine #cousins #cousinlove #melbournemum
With yet another night ahead of us, self doubt loves to knock on the door. May you stick with the sleeping arrangements that work best for your sanity.
* B L O G T I M E ! * . Wowsa! 8 months old, and my hairless wonder baby is basically an adult. Bloody hell... ๐Ÿคญ . I remember when she was a floppy piece of uncooperative spaghetti in my arms. I remember when she wanted nothing more than to lay about in my arms gazing lovingly into my eyes. ๐Ÿ‘€โค๏ธ#GodSheLovedMeSoMuchMyEyeballsWereObviouslyThrilling . Ok, Ok. So she wasn't really CHOOSING to do that. If I want to be honest to myself, I must remember that when she was that little she actually had NO muscle control yet. She couldn't sit up, or even fling her arms and legs about with purpose back then really. And because she couldn't sit up she had nothing else to look at. Bloody hell the poor thing must have been bored stiff lol. #DidntShowItThoughWhattaLegend . But now she has two speeds only... Speed one is a million miles an hour, punchy, punchy, whacky whacky, jumpy, jumpy speed. Speed two is completely unconscious. You know, when asleep. ๐Ÿ˜ด . Her little personality is starting to absolutely shine. And she is starting to compete against her brother in the hilarious-make-us-laugh-till-we-wee-our-pants stakes. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ฆ . In fact, this photo ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป represents her so gosh darn perfectly that I have no more words to say. None. Nada. Nope. Except this... I am terrified to think that we are heading towards turning the big "one" for this wee lass. Because she just got here. And even though I have so much photographic evidence to show that she has had a wild 8 (almost 9) months so far, I still find it totally hard to believe that so much time has gone by. ๐Ÿ•ฐ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ . But thats cool, thats just my #MummaDenial showing its confused head lol. ๐Ÿคช . And while I deal with that confusion, why don't you head to the blog post (link in the bio), have a read, and then come back here and let me know how old your little one is right now, and what they are up to. I would love to know what skills they have learnt in the last month! โค๏ธโค๏ธ . Rad ๐Ÿ“ธ by the baby whisperer @jessworrallphotography โค๏ธ . The babe wears @frankiejonesthelabel โค๏ธ

I really couldn't do without my wonderful fellow parents. Such a beautiful community, both online and off. The kindness and generosity, the late night texts, phonecalls, the supportive words. There is really something quite special about the shared experience of parenthood. Knowing that you are not alone is so very important, especially at the beginning, and particularly if you experience dark days postnatally. No matter how hard the times, how long the days, or how tired the eyes, just know - YOU'RE DOING AN AMAZING JOB - (I've tagged a few of my lovely fellow parent friends who run their own businesses & who have shown me boundless love and support - check them out, & feel free to tag your parenty pals too!) * * * - #pinandsimple #fellowparentsclub #fellowparents #parentinglife #parenthood #instamum #instamom #motherhoodunplugged #parenthoodunplugged #pingame #pinstagram #pinlife #pinaddict #pincollector #pinoftheday #getbywithalittlehelpfrommyfriends #parentssupportingparents #mumssupportingmums #friendshipgoals #ig_motherhood #ohheymama #unitedinmotherhood #mamatribe #capturingmotherhood #doingitforthekids #takebackpostpartum #mumlife #dadlife #momlife #parentsbelike

I made sesame seed bagels yesterday while the baby napped, and then we ate them for lunch with creamy scrambled eggs (and baked beans for Milly and Daddy, I hate the sauce so none for me!). Felt a bit supermum for all of five minutes ๐Ÿ˜‚. I always thought they would be really hard to make and need special equipment but actually they are really easy, the only difference to regular bread being the brief boiling in water to get that yummy chewy outside. I think I need to cut my cooking time a bit, these were more golden than I wanted, and the cinnamon-raisin ones I made the other day were definitely yummier, but I think I just prefer sweet bagels! Maybe some blueberry ones next? Anyone have any favourite bagel flavours I should try?

POSITIVE PARENTING A recent article in InPsych magazine by Professor Lea Waters found that children benefit psychologically if parents focus on their strengths rather than criticise & sweat the small stuff. This research revealled that the children were "less stressed, better at handling friendship issues, better at meeting homework deadlines and get better grades โ€“ important results in light of concerns about teen depression, bullying and underachievement." .... . . "Focusing on strengths doesnโ€™t mean ignoring problems or lavishing kids with excessive praise. It is an honest appraisal of something the child does well (high performance), happily (high energy), and often (high use). So far, researchers have identified more than 100 strengths that can be measured and improved. There are strengths of talent such as sporting, music, artistic, communication and IT abilitiesย andย there are strengths of character such as grit, curiosity, courage, humour and kindness." . Authentically observing our own & other's strengths is a healthy self esteem habit. We need to support the development of a healthy sense of self in our children. Be positive and attuned appropriately and your kids will be happier, and so will you.
