Christmas tree 🎄
This photo is a remake of last year’s. Grab your tissues and check out my story if you want to cry with me. It’s happy tears because baby Theo joined the crew but Nathan is basically a teenager now and Zoey lost her toddler belly. Oh time where do you go 😭🤧 #babiesdontkeep#WHPnaturallight .

my favorite (early) Christmas present, my new framed photos from @mixtiles that I can stick on my walls without any holes or nails and they stick and re-stick whenever I want to move them. The girls had so much fun putting them up and they were so easy to order! #sponsored#mixtiles
Yesterday morning I took the girls on a walk to buy a Christmas tree, stopping off on the way to pick up some Christmas hot chocolates and coffees. The minute we arrived we eyed up the tree of our dreams. It was perfect but knowing there was no way I was going to be able to carry that back we had it set aside whilst we bought some presents in the shop, I even arranged a fool proof plan to have the tree put into it's stand by them to save the inevitable arguments that ensue with us two trying to put a tree nearly twice the height and 4 times as wide as me into a stand. I am a genius I thought to myself as I walked home with the girls.
The tree arrived later and it soon became clear the stand was crap. So our first task was to try and remove the tree from the stand. Which was easier said than done. Trying to wrestle a stand off of a 10ft tree that appears to have been welded on with a soldering iron used to weld NASA spacecraft was not easy and caused a lot or arguing with both blaming the other for not pulling hard enough.
But that was nothing compared to the palava that was us trying to get the 10ft beast I bought into our old stand. It needs to be placed into it the stand with a fair bit of force then held straight whilst it's levered in.
Unfortunately my husband never listens to a damn word I say and there's only so many times I can shout "hold the bloody thing straight" before I loose my rag and tell him to bugger off.
So I'm left with a wonky tree in the stand that I somehow need to hold straight and lever in. This is fine I thought. I've done it before with smaller trees it's no different.
Only it's so very different as it's massive and heavy and within seconds it's laying on top of me and I'm stuck underneath.
I can see two feet shuffle back into the kitchen and I can definitely hear sniggering before some one asks "Do you want my help"
"No I don't, I'm absolutely fine"
I wasn't but I'm a stubborn bugger. It took ages to get out from underneath it but I eventually got it standing, straight, in the stand.
Though I'm still pulling pine needles from my hair and my face looks like I've been attacked by an angry cat.
I posted this a couple weeks back and got a lot of messages about how you'd all forgotten what I looked like, so.... I'll just leave this here. That way when you guys see me out in public doing something ridiculous you'll know without a doubt that it's me. So far this week I've met new Insta friends in real life twice. Once while Wren was throwing a fit in a store and once while I stood stupidly trying to take a phone photo of my kiddos while the camera was pointed at my face... so it looked like I was trying hard to take a squinty eyed confused selfie. In my defense, I never use the selfie camera and I didn't know how to turn it around. The more I type the more I realize I sound like my mom.... except she knows how to take selfies. 🤦♀️ I'm only 29 but some days I feel waaaaay older.
What is it that you mostly forget to bring in your diaper bag?👇 We mommies tends to forget the essentials when stepping out. Sometimes, I found it unbelievable that I forgot my baby's bib...Like really? How could you forget such!😲
Mama, there’s a reason that diaper bags are so big. Seriously, It’s really crazy how many things such a small person needs. Savvy moms, anywhere you go ehe, always bring the diaper bag, stocked with all the essentials. .
What are the essentials? Well, you’ll definitely need a lot of diapers (yea, that’s why they’re called diaper bags) because babies go through about 6-9 of them per day during their first year. Don’t forget to stock up on baby wipes! .
You should always pack bibs, napkins, pacifier, nappy cream, a flannel and a change of clothes, too, because you never know when your baby will spit up or vomit.
The last thing your baby needs is to be sitting or laying around in wet clothes. This will only make them uncomfortable and cause them to cry, which is the last thing you need.
If your baby is on formula feeding, get a small neat plastic container with cover and scoop out the amount of milk needed — depending on the hours you will be spending out. Your baby's mini flask, a bottled water and feeding bottle should also be included.
🍁 Tips: you can actually leave some stuffs in the diaper bag, like:
✴ 6 diapers
✴ A pack of 50ps baby wipes
✴ 2 bibs
✴ 2 napkins
✴ A pacifier
✴ An head-warmer
✴ A flannel
✴ And 2 change clothes .
Leave it there and let it remain untouched. This way, you need not panick on what to pick should an impromptu outing comes up.

I pulled up at the traffic lights this morning, singing away to ‘Shimmer’ (hitting all the notes) as it played on the radio... I looked to my left and another cool human was in her car hitting all the notes to the same song... We smiled at one another and continued with our days.

LAZY PARENTING WIN 😉 "Mommy, can I do the dishes?" asks #ElisabethRay, 3, every evening. She'd pull up her chair, ask for a towel to be placed between her and the sink (to prevent potential water dripping all over the floor), and do the dishes 🍽
I'll say it over and over again: CHILDREN ARE ABLE and WILLING. Let them do chores around the house, and develop lifelong skills. No need for deliberate sensory activities. 👉 Look, my daughter is learning how to wash dishes and in the process, she is strengthening her hand muscles, playing with water and soap, and being responsible (amongst other benefits).
I'd like to think my "lazy parenting" grooms independent and capable children! ❤
