Style Saturdays – Brights

Hannah in Bonds and Big W

Loving this super bright patterned Bonds singlet! It captures perfectly how happy I feel when I see these two starting to interact with each other more and more each day . So in love with our little minis.

Style Saturdays – Watch this space

Daniel watch

Our little dude got a watch for Christmas from his Nanna and he insisted on wearing it everywhere. Daddy got one too, from Mummy. They both teamed up their new watches with blazers from Seed and Zara and I may be biased but I thought they looked quite the handsome duo!

Of course a monster truck is part of every outfit Daniel wears as he is always carrying one around – this time it was Northern Nightmare which was one of the presents he got from Santa for Christmas. He is so good at looking after his toys – he hasn’t lost one monster truck yet because he always seems to make sure that he puts them safe in the pram or in our bags when he’s out and about.

Style Saturdays – City sessions plus two lessons for Mummy!

Mama Mondays The Urban MA blog Everyday Style

Last week we went for a little trip into the city so that I could visit my work mates and introduce them to baby Hannah. Actually, the world “little” is so misleading because even though it sounds like a simple day out, having a baby and a pre-schooler in tow totally doubles the amount of time it takes to do anything!

No wonder mums need to dress super comfy – breastfeeding, running around, dancing in the park and even just constantly being alert watching out for their safety is more than enough to get me sweaty and hot, even on a cool day

.It was such a pleasant lunch with my team members and leader until my little Miss H decided to produce the most biggest nappy explosion ever!…the icky stuff went EVERYWHERE and I could not find a disabled toilet or parents room anywhere nearby so I spent what felt like forever, crammed into the nearest and tiniest female toilets ever, bending over awkwardly, and changing Hannah in her pram. Wahhhhhh!

Poo was in her singlet, in her onesie, all over the blankets on her pram and I had forgotten her change mat in the car.

I wanted to CRY!!!!!

Thank goodness I had a spare mini pack of wet wipes in my bag and a spare plastic bag. There was so much mess and I didn’t think I’d ever get it all cleaned up…OMG it was the worst! In the end all I could do was laugh at myself because I could either do that or get really, really angry and annoyed but what good would that do?

Mama lesson #4 – Always have a spare pack of wipes and spare plastic bags. In fact, just put wipes, tissues and plastic bags in every single bag you own, in the car and in the pram!

Mama lesson #5 – Don’t sweat the small stuff. Seriously, there’s no point! Just fix whatever needs fixing. Learn from it and get on with it.

Mama lesson #6 – This is totally random but after looking for cheap parking online before driving into the city, the cheapest I found was at Crown. I paid only $6 for the whole time we were out! Either that or catch the train but I didn’t want to take up space in the train with our pram in case we got caught in the peak hour rush!

The Urban Ma Christmas at Crown MelbourneSuper happy he is!: While I was having lunch with my work colleagues, Daniel and his aunty watched a movie at Melbourne Central before meeting back up with me and chilling out by the Yarra on our way back to the car

IMG_7797IMG_7806IMG_7801IMG_7810IMG_7818Such a good big brother, he holds onto the pram like he’s guiding his baby sister on which way to go! But really we just tell him to hold the pram so he doesn’t run off anywhere! 😉

Hope you liked this post! Let me know if you know of anywhere else cheap to park in the city, or if you have any other #mamalessons you can bestow on this mama of only three years experience!

Thanks for dropping by! In case you missed the first three #mamalessons, you can find them in my previous post. What other tips can you give me? See you on Instagram or Twitter! 🙂

Saturday Style – Monster suit playtime

Monster Suit Playtime with Mr D

This week’s Saturday Style post is a flashback from last May where a surprise party was organised for my brother by Her Lust Palette. It was held in the Gold Coast coast in an amazing two-storey rental and there was a whole group of us that flew up for the special celebration.

The weather in May on the Gold Coast was not too hot and not too cold and this onesie number we packed for Mr D was worn a lot! Great for running around and tumbling in, and an easy outfit for quick changes into swimwear for the beach.

This onesie has also doubled as a Halloween costume for Mr D’s Halloween Disco last year! He got it as a present – perfect for 1-2 year olds!

Matchy-matchy shoes with Daddy

Found these pics on my messy desktop and can’t believe they were taken exactly a year ago. One of my favourite things to do is watch the hubby playing around with our little one. They can go for hours running around or playing with cars with Mr D chattering away non-stop!

They wore:

-blue flannelette shirt from Pumpkin Patch
– printed tee from Target
– jeans from Cotton On Kids
– hi tops from Charlie & Me (these are so sturdy and easy to wear – Mr D has been wearing them for over a year now!)

– black jacket from FCUK
– tee from Zara
– jeans and shoes from Topman

Style Saturdays – Hoodies and jeans

Styling Daniel 

I love the simple combo of a warm cozy hoodie and jeans on our little one. It’s a perfect match for him to run around in during the cooler seasons yet still look comfortable and stylish enough to go out in with a nice pair of boots. This past winter I bought about three hoodies from Target and they were all so easy to pair and wear.
