The first child was a shock… the second is pure and utter chaos

The first child was a shock… the second is pure and utter chaos

I found the first 12 months as a mum of two stressful and frankly baffling. I didn’t know her as well as I knew her big sister and I was eaten up by guilt because of it. I know why I felt that way though (not that the knowing helped with the guilt); there was no time to stare at her gorgeous face while she slept because when she was happy, I was chasing around a toddler, doing house work, preparing meals or working. My attention was always diverted so I missed critical cues of tiredness or hunger or just wanting a cuddle and she learnt to make her needs known pretty quickly (hello super loud crying!). I was also bloody exhausted, with no hope of relief.

The Ultimate Toddler Gift Guide (to keep parents happy)

The Ultimate Toddler Gift Guide (to keep parents happy)

The Toddlers years are the most important years for learning and development for your child. Their physical, emotional and cognitive development is in overdrive as they grow from a baby to a toddler. They are learning social and emotional skills, their language develops from single words to complex sentences and they use play to explore and understand the world around them. 

It can be an intense time for both parents and children, and for me, keeping busy and providing fun and flexible play options is one of the best things I can do to support my toddler’s learning and development!

By the time you’ve reached the Toddler years, you can be drowning in toys, so it’s always nice to discover new and amazing brands to support! I’ve pulled together 5 of my favourite toddler products that I love!!

My home VBAC… yep! 

Let’s get this out of the way; a homebirth was not the plan. It wasn’t even in the realm of possible outcomes for the birth of my second baby.

5 things I record every day about my toddler

As a parent I am often blown away by the speed at which my children reach their developmental milestones. It is astounding (and amazing) how quickly they develop from helpless newborns into opinionated toddlers! 

It all happens so quickly, I try and document all the significant changes. Here are my top 5 things to record;

Pregnancy, birth and going home... we've got you covered

Are you determined to record all the precious moments of your pregnancy? 

After two pregnancies, there are  few things I know I want to remember. I want to know the symptoms I had and when they started or eased. I want lots of photos to look back on the way my body changed and for my girls I want to make notes of the small bits of their personality that made itself known in utero.

Just a mum?

Just a mum?

A lot of the time I feel like I’m just a Mum. Sometimes it’s comforting, sometimes it’s empowering 💪🏼 (hardest job in the world right??!!) and sometimes it’s downright deflating 😦. . How the hell can I get anything done???!!

Motherhood is honestly the most intensely exhausting job, and I admit, sometimes I lose sight of me in the craziness of everyday life with two little ones 👶🏼👧🏼
