Mama Mondays – Life Lately Mothers Day 

 Just a quick photo diary post on last weekend’s shenanigans!  Started off this year’s Mother’s Day weekend with a cute little morning tea at Mr D’s preschool. They had a nail painting station, cookie decorating station and some other few activities that the centre’s educators had organised so well right down to the lovely little decorative lace on the vases!

It was such a fun morning and which ended with a walk to the nearby park with pretty pink balloons raising money for research and awareness for breast cancer. We left before the walk though, so that Mr D could join his cousins and aunties and uncles at Barwon Heads.

I didn’t realise I was pulling this face while he painted my nails – a worried kind of smile!    He was so proud of his paint job that he showed off my hands to everyone last weekend. Thankfully Monday came around and I was finally able to take the polish off!That super gorgeous smile of his – brightens up even the gloomiest mornings!
Off to Barwon Heads for some fishing which Daddy and the cousins have been getting into over the past few weeks! They’re learning every day new things like what bait to use, when and where to fish etc. They caught twelve fish that day! It was such a great day to be outdoors!We always set up a little pop up tent for Miss H and this time Thad joined her. A great set up to give Miss H room to roll around and keep the babies safe from any cool winds and rain!
On Saturday Melbourne again brought the beautiful sunshine out and we ventured to Jurassic World at the Melbourne Museum. I’ll write a more details regarding the exhibition in another post but for now here are just a couple of teasers! The dinosaurs were huge!Our little scientist!
Saturday night we were able to have a few hours of alone time without the kids as we celebrated a friend’s birthday in the city and scoffed down plates of dumplings and Hutong! Sorry for the cramped and stingy looking lift selfie but it was the only one we took of the night!

The smell of a croque monsieur grilling away in the morning wafted throughout the house as the hubby made this amazingly delicious breakfast for me. I love the little family and little home we’ve created and can’t wait to spend many more Mother’s Days with them! The Sunday was all about the mums and grandmas so the day started off with mass, then lunch with all my aunties, uncles, mum and grandparents, then dinner with the hubby’s side of the family.image2 (9)image3 (6)

Wellness Wednesday – Motherhood is different for everyone


Motherhood is different for everybody

Just getting in early to wish all the mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and mother-figures out there a happy, stress-free and relaxing Mothers Day 2016.

We are all doing our best with what we are given…a role with no specific job description or instructions but we still manage to get everything done. There are so many helpful resources out there including our own parents, friends and relatives and also online support networks and apps such as the MyMedela app which I downloaded recently. So handy to have so much valuable information in one place! Anything that helps to makes things easier and more efficient is gold!

Do you have any other helpful apps that you use to keep everything organised ie. budgeting apps, calendar, to do list type apps, cleaning apps etc? I’d love to check them out!
