Melbourne Airport at 6am Yesterday, I flew up to Brisbane for the day to attend Visual Impact 2016 – a printing industry expo – to do research for our business as well as to establish some connections and talk to experienced people and just do some networking in general. Enoch took the day off so he could look after the kids. My day started ridiculously early. My alarm was set to go off at 4.15am and I found myself awake at 2am (checked the time) and again at 3.15am and finally up at 4.10am and decided to just lie in … Continue reading My Day Without Kids
Photo Credit: Daniel Boyle Ladies and perhaps some gents, there are many reasons why I love living in Australia. I love the weather, the people, the schools and medical facilities, the beautiful walking tracks and family friendly parks… just … Continue reading Casey Central – that new shopping centre 😉
Purchased March 2013 – read full post and see more pictures from our first few weeks of using it here: http://www.kimbaspride.com/2013/04/almost-16-months-whats-new.html Photos taken earlier this morning Three years ago, we bought a second-hand trampoline that was only 3 months old and in excellent condition from a lady on a Facebook Buy/Swap/Sell Group. Today, we still firmly believe it was the best thing we ever bought for our kids. It still gets a lot of use and the kids still love it, and we spend a lot of beautiful days just hanging out in the trampoline as a family. It serves … Continue reading For The Love of Trampoline
Or… more importantly, why did I self-proclaim yours truly as essentially a Millennial Mom? Here are a few articles and resources that provide a really comprehensive explanation of what defines millennial moms: https://www.webershandwick.com/uploads/news/files/MillennialMoms_ExecSummary.pdf http://www.popsugar.com/moms/Signs-You-Millennial-Mom-37484119 http://digiday.com/brands/5-things-brands-need-know-millennial-moms/ These make such interesting reads, … Continue reading What is the Definition of a Millennial Mom?
See the face of that mom in the image above? She looks calm and under control. I just hope I maintain this calm, lol. It is so easy to pat myself on the back whenever I have good days… but knowing me, I am going to need a lot of contingency plans in place for self motivation purposes. I suppose the key is to be at a place in your life when you are settled and ready to take that leap of faith. Staying motivated is easier when you love what you do, and I am absolutely loving what I … Continue reading Just Start Somewhere… just do it.
Today is actually one of those days when I want to just sit down and write down all my thoughts before I forget them. Even when I managed to get a struggling and whinging 2yo down for her afternoon nap, … Continue reading Raising Kids & Running A Business From Home (and Blogging)
I know, it is already April. So the term “New Year” sounds a little bit ridiculous. In all fairness though, the start of this year kinda sped right past me! January was a lazy “we just got back home from … Continue reading New Year, New Beginning
As a Stay at Home Mother of two young kids, I have realised very soon after my second child was born that I needed to do a few things differently around the house. What used to be a “luxury” of just having one child, is no longer a luxury. When I only had Micah, I could have time to myself a few hours during the day whenever he naps. Now with two, I have to make sure their sleeping schedules sync so I still get that down time. If not, I spend the whole day just being consumed by my … Continue reading 10 Helpful Things I have Learnt to do as a SAHM
Where do I even begin… I used to be a mummy blogger. A fairly good one too, I must add. I used to document Micah’s development week after week. I can look back at Micah’s first year and tell you exactly when he started crawling, eating, walking, clapping, talking, throwing tantrums, etc. (Just as I was typing that, Micah screamed “I WANT MY WATER BOTTLE!!!” I then went up to him and said “That is not how you ask for things, ask again, nicely, and say please.” Which he did. I then gave him his water bottle and walked back … Continue reading I used to be a Mummy Blogger! What happened??
Cannot believe 6 months have passed just like that… the past 6 months have been FULL ON. That is quite an understatement really. You just don’t realize what a luxury it was to only have to care for one child until another one comes along. Life is busy, busy and busy ALL the time! Sleep is pretty much a bonus on days when we get lucky. The house is a permanent bomb site. I have been very lucky though, half the time I have had my mum staying with us and helping me with the kids. She was here for … Continue reading 6 Months Later…
