They test me with unreasonable requests, tears, fights, squealing and tantrums. I can't wait until bedtime or to bustle them off to childcare so I can have adult time. .
Then, the second they are asleep or wave goodbye at the childcare gates, I bloody miss them and end up looking at photos of them, talking about them or being a sleep stalker 😳  Is everyone else the same? Jesus, this parenting gig is full of highs and lows  #sleepstalkingismyhobby

Nothing like working all day and driving an hour in traffic to pick up you babies. Only to argue with a smaller sassier version of yourself that her name is Scarlett and it's not spelt 'H U D S O N' 😖 #thisismylifenow #shesadvancedatarguing #FFS

Rock 'n Roll 🤘!!
.
Yesterday we played tourist in our own city. I was recently asked by @kidtownmelbourne what one of my favourite things to do with kids in Melbourne is, and well.....we absolutely love going to the @ngvmelbourne and @artscentremelbourne.
.
There is always something on at the Gallery or Art Centre and you can easily spend a morning or afternoon there for free. Plus, afterwards you can walk along the Yarra and see some amazing buskers, have a picnic or head to @federationsquare for a bite to eat. We also went on a carriage ride which is certainly not free but a fun experience for the kids and really worth a go at least once.
.

Melbourne has so much to see and do! We are very lucky.

This just happened, both kids walked past my husband laying on the couch to the kitchen where I am cleaning up after dinner. Scarlett asked me to fix her slipper and Hudson asked to watch something else on TV 🤨😂😂 #askyourfather #friday .

Diamonds, gemstones, opals, champagne and great company! .
This afternoon I met the beautiful @cassandramamone and saw some of her amazing designs, including her new Australiana collection. My favourite was the Grandeur Diamond Ring, but to be honest I would be happy with any of these divine pieces *hint hint - hubby if you're reading this. I love you 😜 ** swipe to see more 💎 #cassamdramamone #diamondsareagirlsbestfriend

Scarlett did one photoshoot with @piccoliphotography and now she loves a photo. .

Full pout, poses, told Hudson to get out of her way and then asks me 'have you got it?' 😳 Hudson on the other hand, he just wants to do karate 😂.
.

Outfits: @pumpkinpatchkids winter collection.

{GUEST BLOG} Bree Tapper is an experienced psychologist who works with busy parents in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Check out her guest blog on anxiety and parenting. .
This guest blog really resonated with me. I thought I was just feeling overwhelmed from work and having two kids, I never took any time for myself and I was feeling frustrated overwhelmed all the time.  I thought it was just mum life, turns out I was incredibly anxious.  Worth a read - Link in bio. #mentalhealth #awareness #speakup #guestblogger

Just add two kids watching this lady on the toilet and it's me 🙈. Rompers and jumpsuits, it's all fun and games until you need to go to the toilet 😂😂 Spot on @sadgirlpop

This my friends is either a very brave or a very silly man
.
Firstly, tonight he came strolling into the kitchen after his shower asking 'what's for dinner' like he is living at some sort of resort. .
Then he proceeded to tell me that his lunch of pulled pork and salad rolls was 'ok, but just a but bit bready.' Really?!?! The 'bread rolls' are too bready. The same bread rolls that I schlepped out of bed at 5.20am to make for him. Oh I'm sorry Gordon Ramsay, how about you make your own lunch? .
Finally he strolled past me and into the pantry to pick up a bag of cashews to tell me he doesn't love the spice on them. Look at him, evaluating them like a masterchef judge 🤨.
.
This little food critic  has been known to indulge in fried hamburgers , double quarter pounders and bags of donuts.....but don't even think about serving him rolls that are 'too bready' or cashews that are incorrectly spiced 🙄🙄 .
Needless to say, I'll probably sleep in tomorrow and he can make his own lunch 😠 Anyone else have partners that are food critics?? #makeyourowneffinglunch

'Ohhh it's a rainy day. Lets do craft' - if these words ever leave my mouth again.....slap me!!! .
I took the kids to Kmart this morning to buy some craft stuff with money from their money boxes. We left with a bath bomb kit and a little pom pom animal kit. I strode out full of confidence imagining loving scenes of us crafting all afternoon. Boy, I was wrong. .

The bath bombs were easy and in hindsight they were like gateway craft, they lead me to believe that craft is easy and an ok activity to do with kids. Still on a high from the bath bombs we whipped out the pom pom animal kit. Only to discover we weren't just decorating the pom poms I had to make the 🤬 things (just give us the pom poms Kmart). I was determined to make it work and sat there twirling wool onto some sort of contraption like I knew what I was doing. It was at this point the kids started fighting and eventually bailed to do something else.
.

Halfway through I got bored and started watching Real Housewives of Atlanta on my phone, but not even NeNe and the gang could bring relief from my crafting hell.  After an hour (that felt like 6 hours) of twirling I managed to make 4 little pom poms. The kids scurried over to decorate them then dumped them like hotcakes when they realised the glue has to dry.  Now I sit here with these shitty little dog/bear things that no one cares about.  Craft isn't a good idea, we should have stopped at the bath bombs or better yet just watched movies.  See my stories for the full journey 😖 #sendwine #craftisforschool #notmarthastewart

Want to feel like your walking on clouds? Do yourself a favor and check out  GoWalk Joy from @skechers_australia. These are hands down the most comfortable shoes I own and I have lived in them since I got them. .

They are great for a long walk and easy to slip on to quickly run the rubbish out to the bin or grab the washing off the line (don't be jealous, I know......I live a glamorous life 😂). Unlike other comfortable practical shoes, they actually look good *cough, I'm looking at you crocs* 🙈  #gowalkjoy #skechersausnz

This cooler weather has meant that we have had a quiet day inside and after a busy few weeks it has been really nice. .
Hudson and Scarlett are loving these new books from @beaglierbooks and believe me, Scarlett could really benefit from the polite one as she has been quite demanding lately 🙈
.
The range includes 15 books which explore everything from ‘Being a Family’ to ‘Being a Big Sister’ through simple advice, quotes and everyday life-hacks.  The books are easy to read and have a section so you can write notes in the margins.
