    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #14

    The 14th week of 2019 was full of anxiety, but also ended up being surprisingly productive. Also, there was that time on the Monday when the Little Mister randomly spewed and I actually saw it as a blessing in disguise… Anyway, we’ll get to that bit! 2 April – Tuesday I was starting to get anxious about starting at the gym this coming Thursday. I know it sounds silly but I feel like I have an insurmountable list of tasks to tick off before I can even get started. I messaged my friends S and A to ask questions (silly ones to regular gym goers I am sure) and they…

    Happy List #54

    Oh hey! I haven’t done one of these in a long time, but I’m feeling the need to focus on some positive stuff after a chaotic couple of weeks! The whole gratitude/positivity thing is not for everyone (for some it feels forced or whatever), but it often helps bring me back to a good head space when I’ve been feeling anxious or angry or just out of sorts. At the end of most days, we practice ‘3 things’ with the Little Mister. We will tell him three things that made us happy during the day and he will tell us his. It’s my not so stealthy way of trying to…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #13

    OK, so I have fallen way behind in my weekly chatty life updates. I am still only up to the end of March, you guys. I think sometimes I put off writing these posts because some weeks are better than others and some are a little hard to relive. I also know these posts are probably not always exciting. Just gonna own that and be OK with it. That’s life! But the thing is, it’s a record for me to keep and sometimes it inspires me to write other content too! Also, I know that I have to write what I would read, if that makes sense. It’s probably not…

    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…
