If working a full time job in the financial planning industry, being mum to the world’s most independent, stubborn and rambunctious 19 month old and feeling like a whale at 31 weeks pregnant with a little dude who seems like he’s going to follow in his sister’s footsteps wasn’t enough… I decided to indulge my love of children’s fashion and have started a FB based kids clothing store. We’re hoping to get a website up and running in the not to distant future (am I dreaming if I say my aim is to accomplish that while on maternity leave?) Anyway, we’re very slowly but surely adding products to our range. If you’re on FB, feel free to like us :)
Dom says this is too girly…. but I’m kind of in love with it! Thoughts??
Currently on holiday in Phuket with my little family. Yesterday we got caught up in the chaos of the tsunami warning while driving near Patong beach. I can honestly say I’ve never been more scared in my life. So grateful today for my husband, our beautiful girl and the little boy who will soon be with us. Seize the day! xx
I am terrible at updating here. Work, Scarlett, juggling her extra-curricular activities like Tumbletastics, swimming and Kindermusik (being a sociable toddler is time consuming you know), pregnancy, constant morning sickness and trying to be the best wife/mother/chef/cleaner/dog walker I can is a struggle at the moment but I really need to try to make time to document this pregnancy. I’m already 19w2d and it seems like it’s flying……. Anyway, in case you haven’t guessed… here is the money shot from our scan yesterday. IT’S A BOY. Scarlett is going to have a little brother. Now we need a name. Why are boys names so hard. Send help!! :(
I think Scarlett is trying to drop down to one nap a day. She has flat out refused an afternoon nap for the last few days and even getting her to take an early one has been a nightmare. So my question is…. what time should I be putting her down for a nap if she goes down to 1 a day?
She usually wakes around 7-7:30 of a morning but doesn’t go to bed until around 8pm of a night. I know 7pm seems to be the “standard” but my husband doesn’t get home from work until 6:30 and there is no way in hell she’ll go to bed after only just laying eyes on him!!
Scarlett was crawling around our bedroom earlier today and found my teddy bear from when I was little at the back of a shelf. My Grandmother bought this teddy for me when I was 3 days old for 50 cents and he accompanied me pretty much everywhere until I started school. I remember my Grandfather fixing him numerous times because a limb was about to fall off and he still has the replacement button nose he sewed on when the original one fell off. Ted had a place on my bed until my husband and I started dating. When Dom went on a round-world trip without me 6 months into our relationship, I sent teddy with him to remind him of me!!
Poor teddy has been sitting waiting for a new home in our house and I’m ashamed to say I had forgotten about him since Scarlett was born. Today she picked him up and hasn’t put him down all day. About 5 minutes ago while watching her play with him I realised it would have been my Grandmother’s 94th birthday today. She passed away seven years ago.
We love you Nan. Thank you for the rattiest, best teddy in the world!
She kills me with her perfection. How did I get so lucky?
