They didn’t tell me that some days I’d feel completely defeated. They didn’t warn me that I’d be overwhelmed with both joy and exhaustion. They didn’t tell me about this thing you contract called “mum guilt”. I was never informed that I’d probably put copious amounts of pressure on myself to be the absolute BEST mother I can be through all the different seasons of life. It’s a roller coaster of emotions to say the least. They did tell me however, that I’d love the second child just as equally as my first, and that I’d love my third just ...
The worst lie you can tell a new parent is that it gets “easier”. Sorry! But I’m here to drop a #truthbomb It doesn’t get easier at all, just take a look at this photo. What I can tell you is that it gets busier, louder and much more chaotic. But in a good way 😉🤪 #mumof3
When you’re in the thick of it all, it sometimes feels a lil overwhelming and hard. But then there is this, these moments where you cannot believe why or how you got so lucky 💫 children aren’t a chore, they are an absolute blessing. The little people of our universe teach us SO much more than we realise . . . . . #mummyof3#mummydiaries
Where’s Luca’s head you might ask? Hmmm, I don’t think he even knows to be honest. This right here, is an accurate representation of trying to get a photo with 3 kids 🤨 Luca, doesn’t understand in the slightest how to co-operate or be a team player, he’s always off on a tangent doing the opposite to what you ask him to do. Edan watching on with an expression suggesting “how did I get lucky enough to land my position of baby brother to that crazy human” and Max, well...Max is just super chill. Mum? She’s trying really hard to ...
Allow them time to fall in love with their new baby brother or sister. I think we often forget about this, that they need time to observe, time to grow together and time to bond. And when they eventually do, it’s truly the best ✨ #motherhood#mummydiaries
When your friend withdraws money for you and it comes out with your child’s name on it 😳 out of alllll the money, alllll the names, and his name isn’t what I would say is overly “common” 🤔 What are your thoughts on this? Has this ever happened to you?
5 MONTHS of obsessively taking photos of you 🙈 Happy 5 months to our littlest babe. So far, we can roll around the floor, chew on anything in reach/sight. We’ve just discovered our toes, love a 4am poop and not showing any interest in solids just yet. Edan 🐻 you are amazing! #5monthsold#timeslowdown
Just over here soaking up these precious moments. I know they are going to come to an end before I know it! This little one is becoming so cheeky as he tries to hold his own bottle, and turning feed time into play time. For some reason he thinks Mama looks funny these days, and basically giggles in my face, it’s adorable! 🙈 . . . . . #bottlefeeding#fedisbest
My life right now consists of an upset, apparently starving baby and a toddler that continues to do somersaults in all the appropriate places 🤷♀️ it’s definitely been one of those more challenging weeks, where instead of losing your shit, you breathe and remind yourself how effing blessed you are 🤨🙄😂 . . . . . #motherhoodtruths#themummydiaries
I think Luca managed to photobomb almost every frame, he’s cute like that. “Hey Mum, I’ll give Edie Boo Boo a tail”. Perfect, looks great! Does a third child actually get a baby album? 🤔🤨 #mummydiaries
I’m in the midst of this parenting gig where the mood of my 3yr old is fickle and I don’t know whether to laugh or cry 🙆♀️ he’s completely unpredictable and turning my back on him while he’s holding a Nerf would be the equivalent to entering a lion enclosure at the zoo. Enter at your own risk! The baby. He’s super cute but needs to be sure I’m right next to him just in case I didn’t witness his ever so clever belly rolling. I’m not sure if he’s overwhelming himself OR if he too is scared of the ...
It’s normally the busiest time of the day right now, 4.30pm on a Tuesday afternoon. What I should probably be doing is getting the bath ready, folding mountains of washing and cooking dinner. Buttttt someone snuggled into me and fell asleep and so I kinda decided to stay plonked on the couch. It won’t be long before these little baby snuggles are a thing of the past, when he’s too busy fighting sleep and rummaging through the pots and pans. So, ima just gonna chill and enjoy it because ain’t nobody gonna starve 🤷♀️ #mummydiaries#theyreonlylittleonce
The thing about motherhood is; just when you feel like your finding your feet they adopt new habits, like....midnight pooping. 💩 So yep, here’s a photo of us complaining about our lives 🤪 The poor dear is tired. WELL my love, you’re definitely calling the shots when it comes to naps so like, if you’re tired, why not just have one? I’m right here waiting for you 🙊 #mummydiaries . . . . . #mumssupportingmums
