So here it is... the big news I’ve been keeping under wraps until it was official, official... and official. I am a #noogler aka newbie Googler ya’ll! ⠀⠀⠀
I had big plans to write up all that this image represents. But it doesn’t take long to get back in the grind before you realize your time is even more limited when you’re a working mom! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, it will happen. It’s a story to be told. For now, I’ll leave you with this. Have faith even when you’re overcome with fear. God is listening. To every word you mumble. To every desire of your heart. And He cherishes that faith, no matter how small, and makes big things... seemingly impossible things... happen for your good. More to come! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. Getting two kids ready with lunches packed and off to daycare before commuting to work is no joke people... even with two parents plus Grandma. Shout out to the single parents out there and the couples with no family nearby! You are warriors!
Little girls with dreams become women with vision!🙌🏻💓 Swipe to see more pics 👉🏻
Even in the 21st century, when we go to kid clothing & toy stores, we see a big divide in the type of tees & toys available for each gender. Unfortunately, with the kind of cartoons & merchandise available for girls, we fear that girls are being influenced to dream about being rescued by a knight in shining armor instead of being the knight themselves!
Fortunately I came across @tinydreamers.in , who through the characters in their books want girls to dream about bolder, coolers and bigger dreams like flying a rocket, being a karate champ, performing like a rockstar or inventing rocket fuel! They want girls to relate to these characters and fall in love with their dreams and lifestyle :) They want girls to wear their favorite character's tees and think of themselves as tiny dreamers!
I want my daughter to grow up believing she can be whoever she wants to be. So, when I saw this tee, I loved it and picked it up for my baby girl. As soon as Ciara saw her gift she asked me what it meant and then told me how she wants to be Captain of a biiiig ship like her Papa!🤗
A truly inspiring conversation it was.
Thank you Tiny Dreamers for giving me and Ciara that moment. I hope to introduce my little girl to your wonderful world of Stories & T-shirts that capture how infinite your child's dreams are, just so perfectly.
If you can see it, you can be it! Encourage your girls to imagine the impossible. I did! Go check out their page for some inspiring tees for your little girls! Also, they are running a flat 20 percent off introductory offer, so all my IG peeps can use the code FLAT20 for their purchase! 👍🏻#dreambig#girlpower#kids_ig#igkids#childofig .
O U T. Yesterday we were already out walking the dog, but today has been a much slower morning thanks to the cooler weather. Heading out shortly though - if only to stop this this one picking at my plants and pulling my hair 🙄 I’m also hoping to take some pics of the area for my next blog post. What has your Wednesday got in store for you?

Our next trip is child and Poppy free. Just Jase and I and a mini South Island roadie next month.
Jase even booked me 23kgs of luggage because he knows ‘it hurts me to have to leave shoes behind’ 😂 #knowsmetoowell
Snap from the school run 💙 This little guy is a kind soul and has been quite sensitive just recently. I’m starting to notice the difference that school makes, in so many great ways and what he knows and understands about the world, but also how some things he learns or picks up from other children can play on his mind as he tries to figure things out for himself. That smile though, it’s lovely to pick him up and see this face 😊
On Anzac Day last year we found out we were pregnant with Azalea, we didn’t know if I would carry to term but it was one of the happiest moments of my life seeing the positive pregnancy test. I bought this onesie for our birth announcement and hoped like all hell she’d be here one day to fit into it. A year later and she’s thriving like she’s done it all before. The universe granted us an incredible blessing in this perfect little girl ✨
Wednesday! I am 34 weeks pregnant and seriously can’t believe how quickly time is passing! We had our first visit to triage yesterday after my blood pressure was sky high at my midwife app and I was having some tightenings. Thankfully all the tests came back normal but I have been told I have an irritable uterus, basically lots of tightenings which aren’t doing anything. Walking and moving around a lot is definitely triggering them so I have to take it easy which is so much easier said than done with two little ones, the tightenings are really quite painful, frequent and uncomfortable tho so I am going to try. Anyone else had this in pregnancy? The doctor was pretty relaxed and said to take pain relief but it’s got me worried!
She really didn't want to go to sleep in her bed 😂
God knows what crap has been pulled out midst tantrum, but I love that in her stubbornness, Millie has used her rug as a duvet to fall asleep on the floor......
Makes total sense 🤐
Looking back at our photos over the past couple of years and there are only a handful of the kids with me in the picture. I'm going to get in the picture more. So 'scuse the bags under my eyes, double chins and bad skin. Our kids won't care about these when looking back at pics, they'll hopefully just remember a mum that spent quality time with them chasing waterfalls 💕
