Adulting

Adulting is quite frankly a pain in the arse. The realisation that you just can’t throw a paddy anymore, or sulk in your room for hours on end is like a metaphorical pie in the face. I’ve had to adult a lot this year. Not because I have two tiny terrorists (and a 42-year-old one) … Continue reading

Baby Blake is 1!

52 weeks ago you came into our lives, very quickly and a bit earlier than we were prepared for, but in the most magical way. Clearly a FOMO (fear of missing out-er) in the making, you just didn’t want to let the Christmas celebrations happen without you. Giving birth to you at home really was … Continue reading

11 month itch

Last week marked my darling Blake turning 11 months old, which in turn marks a month until I have to return to work. I’m so very sad about having to return to work and leaving her. I was hammering down the office door at around 10 months with Dex, safely returning back on payroll by … Continue reading

Mornings

Still convinced its the middle of the night, I try to persuade her to go back to sleep, which results in her laughing in my face. True story. I then … Continue reading

Work. (Sulks).

So the prospect of returning to work has reared its ugly head and I’ve been forced to start thinking about my next steps as a frazzled mother of two. In all honesty I didn’t enjoy my maternity leave much with Dexter. It was fun and spending time with him was a joy but I found it … Continue reading

4.

Today is my chatty companions 4th Birthday. 4 whole years he’s been here, 4 very short but very fun years. Dexter is a micheveous boy with such a big heart. Yes he does make my ears bleed with his many, many, many questions but he makes me smile every morning with the same line, “is … Continue reading

My Housemate

The OH and I are not ones for PDUA (public displays of unnecessary affection). We’ve never been soppy or traditionally romantic, in fact we NEVER celebrate our anniversary (it was 8 years in April) but it doesn’t mean our relationship isn’t rock solid (witnessing your baby mama getting her vagina stitched up on your lounge … Continue reading

The Elephant

I lost my shit today, sadly with those that care the most about me, my family. I lost my shit over something that wasn’t their fault, but something that has been bubbling up inside of me for a while. Blake has eczema, the same as Dexter had, but sadly it’s on her face so very … Continue reading

Our trip of a lifetime

We will be lucky enough to be travelling around and visiting Melbourne,  Adelaide and … Continue reading
