STILL - Had the most amazing experience at @mariellehoogenboom Kick start your dreams Workshop last night. One of the most amazing takeaways was ‘ Check in with yourself, tune in and go within to find the answers to all of your questions ‘ .
.

Meditation or stillness is now part of my daily routine and my body literally wakes up at 6.30am so I can feel that connection with Self. There are guided meditations you can try but after reading @melissaambrosini book ‘ Mastering your mean girl ‘ I found such a simple way to tune in and really have some quiet which turns into regeneration of my energy ( most of you know I’m not a morning person ) .
.

What I’m addicted to is that feeling of peace, calm and certainty that everything is going to Flow in the right direction. As I now know Obstacles can be Detours in the Right Direction! This quote says it all stillness brings Inner Radiance. .
. 
What are your daily rituals that you can’t live without? Wanted to thank you all for your support on my emotional day yesterday it needed to come out and I’m now looking forward to new connections and the next stage with bubba 🙏🏽

Single Parent Discrimination ... 😬
I’ve spent quite a few days going deep into the idea of discrimination against single parents when it comes to renting properties. I know it’s a big word and it’s a heavy sentence with a myriad of emotional justifications, excuses, denials and plain #IGotNoIdea responses from those that handle the rental market 🤭
From my experience it took a long time to get a rental on my own as a single mum of two and I was up against why they call ‘family applicants’ which is the nuclear family of mum and dad and kids. #FrustratingTimes
I’m interested to get opinions on this from you, my followers about your opinions or experiences. Do you think this exists or is it a misused term and why?

I think we’ve all been in this place at some point.  It could have been a friend, a company, a church or a partner responsible for the rejection and betrayal but the result was the same, never putting your worth again in the hands of someone else.  Your worth is so sacred and unique, to live with an expectation that others will fully comprehend it is foolish at best.  Know your worth and operate from a place of love.  You are worthy.

{ solo bedtime } 
Solo bedtime feels even harder in the heat for some reason! I’m exhausted! It’s been one of those days today...lots of toddler tantrums about god knows what, and a baby who wouldn’t nap. I do love reading Sophie her bedtime story though once Isobel is in bed, it’s one of the best parts of my day ❤️
But now I need to find some energy to drag my butt to Zumba tonight! 
Hope you’ve all enjoyed some sunshine at some point today ☀️

~AL FRESCO~

Finishing our dinner outside with factor 50 sun-kissed skin before washing off a day of muddy knees, a raspberry stained mouth and mint choc chip ice- cream-licked-fingers whilst listening to the evening chorus amid chants of "Cat, cat! " every time the felines swagger past flirting for their tea. Perfection is different for everybody but this is one vision of perfection for me 👌

#throwbackthursday to a brand new Ruby Roo a couple of hours old before she got taken up to the neonatal unit.. 💕 I’m here just now dropping off some of her little clothes she has grown out of to help otherlittle babies and a thank you for the ladies who looked after her. It’s quite emotional in a nice way to be back.. The start of our journey together on the outside 💕 her dad was up at the beginning of the week to visit her, the plan is to do so a couple of days each month and he pays her support.  He was really good with her when she was up and he did his best to help out when he was here and did a good job. We need to work on our communication and still have a way to go but I’m glad that we are deciding to put our respective beef aside to have a good co parent relationship for the sake of Roo.

Feel it. 💔
Feel what you need to, stop packing it away, bring it to the surface, let it out, own it, explore it, don’t be afraid.  They are just emotions, YOU ARE SAFE, they may hurt, but it will be temporary, once you allow yourself to feel and accept them you can release them.  You can find freedom in no longer being weighed down by the heaviness of the armour you wear to protect yourself and let your skin soak in the sunshine. ❌⭕️ #worthywidow #selfworthbuildsresilience #lovefearlesslylivefully

The distance is hard. The nights away are long. I can’t lie I worried for a time about him losing connection given how young she is... but I was worried for nothing. It’s not ideal. If only we had a private jet. But we are making it work and she loves her Daddy the absolute mostest ❤️ when he’s around she wants no one else 😍 @jordandoering #daddysgirl

JOURNEY - Our beautiful Breastfeeding Journey is over and I’m having all the feels today ( crying as I write this ) we loved it for 21 months ( well possibly not the first 3 months but we pushed through ). .
.

It was just time & I will cherish these pics taken by the exceptional@daphneheathphotography forever and those moments we shared. Also thanks to Sophie for the stunning Crown by @sageflowercrowns you are so creative 🙌🏽 These were my private memories that I’m sharing with you ✨✨✨
.
.

Off to Circle of Security parenting class this morning - have any of you guys done this class? I’ve heard it’s amazing and will show me new beautiful ways to bond with her and show her that she’s safe. .
.
.
Any other mumma’s finished their breastfeeding journey that can set my mind at ease please? I know we were blessed enough to have this beautiful connection not everyone is so lucky so I’m not being ungrateful - just sad it’s over..... 😭😭😭
It’s only been a week so really need all the tips and advice 🙏🏽✨✨✨✨ .

Thank you to @mamamiaaus for the opportunity to showcase @shareabode and my single parenting journey so far #MakingSomeWaves
Each bit of exposure goes a long way to creating awareness, getting sign ups which build the database which give me a chance to match single parents for house sharing. And this is starting to happen #Celebrations

But how long do you persevere with someone to be in their child's life when they continue to avoid communication and break promises? #parentingproblems #soloparenting #singlemumlife #dotherightthing
Oggi vorrei essere quell'omino lì, in cielo, appeso al paracadute, che si fa portare dal vento e da un motoscafo.
Blu, leggerezza e la spiaggia di Corralejo sullo sfondo.
E invece no, di nuovo a Roma, alla vita di sempre, a correre, correre, correre senza arrivare da nessuna parte. 
La sera, però, c'è sempre una bella sessione di giochi e ciccole con MiniG e tutto svanisce tra quelle manine appiccicose.

While @ourcunninghamclan is in Florida for a business conference, I have all 3 of our crew. Here Will is doing his reading homework, Lane is in Maggie’s face as usual, Maggie is stuck looking at Lane, and I’m putting in my #superdad cape. #soloparenting #temporary #expectshenanigans #autism #autismawareness #autismdad #momisawaysoweplay!
The suns out and that means that the garden is fully in play and for Lilybelle that can only mean one thing, lots of cartwheels and hair flicks on the trampoline. .

As a solo mom of 3 it’s incredibly difficult to give each of my girls quality one on one time. For the most part they understand that there are 3 of them and 1 of me. But...mom guilt 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’m thankful that I have flexibility in my job so I can eat lunch with each of the older girls once a month. It always makes their day - and mine too! It’s the little things 💕

Loving the new corner of my balcony, such a bright mix of colours 👌🏻#balcony #balconygarden #ecohome #lovemygarden #lovemyhome #soloparenting #singlemum #workingmum
Three under three. Each doing their own work. One is sorting Gujarati 3-part cards, the other is stacking and sorting colors, and the youngest is absorbing all that she is observing. This calm moment lasted all of 10 minutes, and then they (the twins) were in each others space once again, a big struggle we are all working through. .

Shout out to my fellow Montessori twin momma who does a great job of capturing her twins boys at work and always having such an honest view on the experience. Thank you Mandi for keeping it real! @montessoritwins

Deployments suck! Whenever daddy leaves, there are just so many things that change for me and my daughter, things that we have to get readjusted to, like routines, schedules and new activities; and situations that we both have to face without him that can be scary sometimes. 
Emotionally, deployments are very tough! For me, doing this #soloparenting is just plain hard and exhausting. And for her, it’s just sad not to have her daddy home, not being able to grasp the concept of time and know when he will be back, or even understand why daddy has to leave in the first place. There are definitely good days, but there are some very tryinug days as well. I’m just so glad this is almost over, and so, so #thankful for these two oil blends, because they have been a huge emotional support for us these past few months.
...
💜 Console has been a huge help for when Victoria feels frustrated, sad, and angry but doesn’t know how to express her feelings, and it all just explodes into a big tantrum. This blend helps dispels feelings of sadness and grief, and promotes feelings of hope and comfort so we can move forward.
...
💙 Peace has helped me to remain calm when I’m feeling extremely overwhelmed by this solo parenting, and just running out of patience. This blend promotes reassurance and brings a sense of safety and security, while helping release feelings of worry and fear. ...
**Deployments have taught me many different things on many different levels. But they have definitely taught me to have much respect, admiration, and appreciation for single moms. Sending lots of love and blessings to you!

Mango, banana and coconut yogurt topped with chopped almonds and cinnamon. Perfect start to my day of resting on the couch and knitting since we got no sleep last night after hubs fell down a few stairs and messed his knee up. #nursewife #healthystart #nosleep #sotired #knitersofinstagram #soloparenting
Being a single mom is twice the work, twice the stress and twice the tears but also twice the hugs, twice the love and twice the pride...👩💘👫

How do you want to feel in your life? Ask yourself where do you feel most alive, when do you feel free and amazing?  How can you make that a place that you spend more time in? Maybe it’s not something you can do tomorrow but you can always start making small steps to get closer to it.  Write down how you want to feel in all the areas of your life and small changes you can make to get you closer to being there consistently.  If your throwing up roadblocks of why you can’t, your stuck and need to work on reconditioning your thoughts.  We all have endless opportunities!! ❌⭕️ #worthywidow #selfworthbuildsresilience #lovefearlesslylivefully

We have had the hardest few weeks with behaviour. There's been yelling, feet stomping, appalling behaviour, tantrums, tears, outburst of anger, ignorance, attitude, name calling and just standard destructiveness! I've cried many many times, complained to anyone who would listen, and walked around In an utterly stonker of a mood. Lack of routine definitely didn't help due to the half term holiday. I've searched and searched several times for tips, methods and hints on how to improve the behaviour but I just felt like I was banging my head against a brick wall. Monday we hit rock bottom. It was needed. I read an article something along the lines of this quote and realised the behaviour isn't just because she wants to behave that way it's because she wants a reaction, to get my attention. Having a very demanding baby who constantly needs me for something has taken its toll on her and the mom guilt is huge but I've come to realise it's totally fixable. Yesterday was a much better day, there was no yelling, no time outs and I mostly saw the little girl l know and love! Ignoring the outbursts and misbehaving and over commending even the smallest of good things is definitely something I will continue to do! Solo parenting, sleep deprivation and a clingy whingy baby makes it all that much harder but we do what we gotta do...even if it means neglecting your housework, shoving that huge piece of cake in your mouth or simply just taking 5 to yourself...We do it!

Working like mummy 💛 #parentinggoals to raise a MCOC (Male Champions of Change) 
We need more decent, powerful men to step up beside women in building a gender equal world. #mcoc

We need men, our fathers, partners and sons, to stand by us and actively speak up on equality and parity for change to occur any time soon. We need to engage our partners in the conversation at home on active co-parenting to share the load of raising a family. The sooner it doesn’t fall predominantly on the woman’s shoulders, the sooner we will see an enforced shift in culture in the workplace. And because 94% of leadership roles are held by men, it is these men at the top who will initiate the culture shift whereby flexible work and family-friendly workplaces become the norm.

In that one moment it all comes together and everything that’s lead up to it, the struggles, the pain....the lessons. 
It all makes sense and in that moment you exhale.

There are days when I wish I could be the father. 
So that I can take half an hour to freshen up in the morning, grab my breakfast and leave for work, while my partner would need an hour or more to make sure everyone is decently presentable and fed before getting out of the house. 
So that I can spend hours with my colleagues having respectful adult conversations, while my partner tries to reason with a toddler through countless tantrums, such as refusing to wear matching socks or refusing to have a bath. 
So that I can enjoy uninterrupted lunch with my friends, while my partner spends an hour bribing our toddler to finish her colourful plate of food art, every. single. day. 
So that I can do a good job at work and get a letter of appreciation from my boss, while my partner is forever in doubt and scrolling through positive parenting online tips, wondering if she’s doing the whole parenting thing right. 
So that when I am done at work, I can clear up my table, bid my goodbyes and make my way home, while my partner is continuously tidying up after our toddler, who refuses to let mumma out of sight. 
There are days when I wish I was the father. On a few odd days. - SAHM

Did you hear about the e-file site shut down today? ———————————————————————
Be honest! Let me see the hands of the procrastinators who were a bit worried earlier today when it didn’t look like the deadline would be pushed back! 😩 I usually wait pretty late myself so I have no room to judge!
———————————————————————
But miraculously it was! You have one more day to get those in, although as far as I know, state taxes still abide by the standard deadline. Happy taxing everyone. ———————————————————————
Now, who’s worried about next years tax season? I know I am. I haven’t seen much of a difference in any checks, and from what I can tell, the tax changes won’t help the average man as much as the above average man. ———————————————————————
Are you doing anything over the next year to prep for next years filing?

Little pre-bedtime selfie with me and the boys tonight. Bedtime was not as smooth as this photo would suggest, but I’m glad I took this photo before I ate my young. JUST KIDDING I DID NOT EAT HIM, BUT I UNDERSTAND MAMA LIONS BETTER NOW. Anyway, goodnight, friends. #soloparenting #bedtime #brothers #mommyandme #redheadfamily #redheads #selfie #familyselfie #pajamas #5yearsold #2yearsold #5and2 #cosleeping #snuggles #smiles
Tonight was a rough night... Just breathe and this too shall pass. Thank you God for your strength and peace 😞🙏🏻💕

Before I became a mum I was a frequent and passionate dirt bike rider. Yup, most weekends you would find me in The Wattagans State Forest (Central Coast NSW) on my KTM 2 stroke #DirtBikeRider 
Dirt bike riding was my form of meditation, my stress release and invigorated me for the week ahead. It was an intense past time I know but I have never been one to shy away from the hard stuff because the feeling after you get is incomparable #AdrenalineRush 
I wonder if my kids both get this need for crazy daredevil delights from me? Yeah, I’d say so because even though I’m not dirt bike riding right now (I plan to when my little one is older) I am as a single mum and business owner still pushing my limits daily

When 3️⃣0️⃣ minutes reading/bonding before bedtime becomes 6️⃣0️⃣ minutes! 🤷‍♀️

And the little one insists you finish them all because #anythingtoavoidsleeping!🤷‍♀️

And after all that reading, you enter dreamland before your little one because #soloparenting. 🤦‍♀️

Do your kids ever make a piece of art that floors you for some reason? I see this & I see color, joy, light. My baby girl has 1,000,000 reasons to be sad with her daddy gone - yet in her innocent, joy filled heart she isn’t. She’s happy. She has her moments of grief, but most of the time she’s thriving. & I can too (by the way I wrote a post allll about this on the blog this week #soloparenting) ❤️ I am so impressed with her heart & what comes from her soul, like this beautiful chalk drawing. (Thank goodness for @artkiveapp or i wouldn’t have been able to capture and store this!) 🙌🏻

What’s for dinner at your house | Another night of solo parenting, another frittata. This one for my root chakra. My root mantra for the day has been I’m centered and grounded amidst chaos. Loving the energy of these red foods and grounding nettles for stamina + support. The nettles even survived the blizzard, I can survive these two kiddos, right!??

ATTRACT - When we’ve worked on ourselves and continue to do so amazing things happen in your world. I’ve turned a somewhat overwhelming event into totally letting go & have attracted exceptional things in. .
.
Yesterday I woke up to Mirabelle saying Mom without doing any of my morning rituals, no proper shower with the water being turned off by council - so I had to flip it before meeting people. .
.

It was challenging however listening to the 5 Steps of Spiritual Surrender really helped move me through it. Number 2 Focus on what’s Thriving brought a tear to my eye - we are so focused on what’s not working but if we focus on what is thriving in our lives we shift that feeling of lack to abundance. .
.

So I focused on the fact my dreams have come true in having Mirabelle, that wonderful people and spontaneous moments are being drawn into our world 🙏🏽

What do you do to shift moodiness or negative feelings? What is thriving in your world right now? Would love to hear what works for you ✨✨✨ 📷 via Pinterest .

21:47 and both sprogs are finally asleep (just)... enough time to shower, clean up and prepare for it all again tomorrow. One week in of deployment and I’m shattered. Thank goodness for places like Farmer Palmer’s where you can easily spend a day exploring, learning and playing.

Giorno 6. Buuuu.
MiniG è stato bravissimo, ma ha deciso di tornare a Roma a piedi, per cui avanti e indietro, avanti e indietro, avanti e indietro sull'aereo per tutto il viaggio. Io ero morta, lui invece si fermava sorridente ad ogni fila a salutare gli altri passeggeri. Tutti i passeggeri.
