    Before I forget: 5 useful things for people with babies.

    OK, so time is moving faaaaaaast right now. How can the Little Miss be 15 months old – a toddler with attitude – already? I am trying (through the sleepless nights and the teething and the weird fussy food moments) to soak up every moment of her little-ness. I don’t want to forget! She’s the precious completion of our family so I don’t want time to get away from me and then I’m suddenly a mother of teenagers and I’m like WTF JUST HAPPENED? I mean, I know that will still actually happen, but I want to remember the ‘little’ moments well. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’ve…

    Kez’s Anxiety vs. Gym

    Hi, I’m Kez and I get weird whenever I’m about to try something I’ve never done before. Like freaking out about where I will park when I drive somewhere I’ve never been or turning up somewhere like 6 hours too early because being early feels like the only thing I can control about a new situation. Well, this week I finally joined a gym. And let me tell you, it was an ordeal for me. At first I was all fired up about it and ready to jump into it with gusto. I had tried one too many times to do a home work out, with my son nagging me…

    How I feel about my body after having two babies.

    There’s nothing I love more than a good Chrissy Teigen tweet. If you’re not familiar, where have you been?? Kidding. If you aren’t familiar with her, she’s a hilarious multi talented woman (and mother of two) who just happens to be married to singer John Legend. She’s massive on Twitter, you guys. This morning I woke up to find reason #21937 to love her. the thinnest I’ve ever been was right after Luna. Postpartum depression. I’LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING! — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 30, 2019 Luna is her first child and Miles is her second (a little baby John Legend clone). Chrissy was first known to…

    2019: Week 5.

    This week was a pretty busy one! I was well aware it was the last week of the school holidays and I had so much to tick off! Here’s my wrap up of week 5 of 2019 (which includes the end of the longest month of the year and the Little Mister’s first day of year 2)… January 29 – Tuesday This day was a terrible day on paper. The Little Miss had just had a really rough night and had to have her immunisations (right on her morning nap time too)! When we got to the clinic there was a 20 minute wait (at least) and she was restless…

    2019: Week 1.

    Wow, you guys. We did it. We saw in the beginning of another year. I hope the first week has been good to you! I have been excited because I have finally been able to write in my new diary/journal. For a stationery fan (stan?) this is obviously a very big deal and a highlight of a new year! I also love the special pen my son gave me for Christmas – because I’m a ‘writer’. The joy of a good pen! It’s so fancy that you buy ink refills for it and everything! Part of the reason I started the journal was not just for the romance of writing…

    My children don’t get equal billing on social media & I have no remorse about it.

    So right now I have a nine and a half month old and a just turned 7 year old. I’ll come right out and say that I know my second baby is currently getting more online air time than my firstborn. I also know that some people (OK so like 2) have decided that this is something they want me to know about, like I’m oblivious or something. I am sure many more people may have made private judgements. Here is my reasoning and my defence and then I do not want to speak about it anymore. I might get a little feisty, so hold onto your hats. If you…

    A hiatus on the pregnancy updates.

    Hey, everyone. Thanks for being here. Thanks for reading all about my pregnancy, following along and showing me so much support and love. It’s been quite the ride! As I write this post, I am almost 36 weeks pregnant. I have made the decision to go on ‘pregnancy update’ hiatus. There’s nothing wrong (so far – touch wood) and nothing immediately happening in the whole birth canal/C-section area right this minute as I type away (which is lucky because I have stuff to do still haha), but we all know that like all good human pregnancies (thank goodness I am not an elephant – those poor fuckers have to be…

    27 weeks pregnant.

    Sometimes I feel like I’m just one big bummer, posting these updates to depress everyone with. I have made no secret of the fact that I kind of totally suck at pregnancy. I fully acknowledge that things could be much much worse and I am so grateful that the baby is OK at this point, but it hasn’t been easy. I just hope that by recording how it really is in my own personal experience, that maybe I will make someone else feel less alone about it all if they are having an experience that is in any way similar to mine. I also don’t want to give the wrong…

    15 weeks pregnant.

    Week 15 of my pregnancy felt like a bit of a roller coaster of emotions! I blame the hormones! I learned that I’m a bit more sensitive to the energy of other people when I’m pregnant. One example was a beautiful, sunny day when we went out to a community event. There were people everywhere and there was a wonderful, buzzing atmosphere. We ran into heaps of people we know and it was lovely. I actually had a really great time! When it was all over, I felt like I was completely wrecked and on the verge of tears! I think I had just gone into some kind of overwhelmed…

    The last 5 shows I’ve binge watched.

    …and by binge watched, I mean the last 5 shows I’ve probably watched about half an episode at a time because I had to wait for Mr Unprepared or because I fell asleep too early or because he fell asleep too early or because the Tour de France is currently happening and a certain *cough* cycling enthusiast is annoyingly preoccupied… In saying that, I also get to watch some stuff alone that I know I could never convince him about so it’s temporarily a win/win situation…I guess! Anyway, I am not going to defend all of my choices. Sometimes I’m a little left of centre or even a bit dorky…
