You May Be A Working Dad, But I Am Still Your Equal

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

My husband and I had a conversation recently, about how much our time is worth. Already, you can imagine that this was a fun conversation, right?? And by “fun” I mean it was one of the most frustrating conversations I have ever had with him, and it filled me with red-hot rage. And while he looks back on it sheepishly, as a “brain fart”, and has apologised profusely, it is something that I feel like I have got to talk about.  (more…)

My Experience With Hypnobirthing

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Mumma / / 0 comments

Hypnobirthing… I had never heard of it before falling pregnant. In fact, I hadn’t even really given my future labour a proper thought, other than knowing that I was really excited at the thought that I would one day be going through it. What a weirdo huh? I had been lucky enough to witness a good friends labour a couple of years before, and was so amazed and in love with what I had seen. Not in a creepy way but in a life is a freaking miracle sort of way. (more…)

How to travel with Kids

Ellyn Shepherd / Baby, Bloggity Blog, Mumma / / 0 comments

We are travelling with our son in the morning. For the second time in his little life, we are heading to the airport, hopping onto a plane, and flying away to a warm and tropical destination…and I am both super excited AND absurdly terrified. (more…)

Instagram post 2318952143419045733_2224857444 * JOKES FOR DAYS ! * So, my son loves nothing more than to make us laugh... And you know, I bloody LOVE that about him, because boy oh boy how I really love to laugh!! #laughteristhebest And so because if that, we have taken to telling each other knock knock jokes. The worst, worst WORST kinds of knock knock jokes to be specific. Which have been told so many times over that they are no longer remotely funny. #KayMaybeTheyAreStillALittleFunny In fact, wanna hear some of his favourites (that I might add, he always gets wrong) so you can share in the joy too? Oh good. Coz here goes... Knock Knock. Whose there? Bear. Bear who? Bear bum. *insert crickets* Or, knock knock. Whose there? Orange. Orange who? Orange you glad I didn’t say banana? *cough... silence* So... yeah. That’s what my life is these days... 😂 #livingthegoodlife . Do you know any good you can share with us so we can expand our repertoire? Please dear lord, share them below so I can teach him something new tomorrow 😂
Instagram post 2317499714328491867_2224857444 * FUCK ME, THEY ARE SO BLOODY DIRTY! * Do you remember a time (pre-kids) when you imagined having kids? Your days would be filled with endless laughs, endless adventures, endless love... And I bet you that not ONCE did you imagine the fuck load of laundry you would have to do when it came to living that adventurous life, did you? Bloody hell I know I didn’t. But yesterday (when I obviously felt like living on the edge), I took the kids for a walk to the end of our street whilst we hunted random puddles to jump in. Like this bad boy right here ☝🏻 “Jump!” I commanded. “Live your best mud splattered life”. And they did. Oh the memories I just knew they would make! But the washing that came afterwards made me want to throw myself out of the actual window. Was it worth it? Meh. Will I let them do it again regardless? Probably. Because kids are so controlled these days. And I liked that, even if it was only a few minutes of muddy joy (and a lifetime of laundry for me), they could really be kids. And they could experience the giddy, silly freedom that being a kid should bring. Are you a muddy puddle jumping family? Or do you steer clear! Share below xx
Instagram post 2313150880869703278_2224857444 * NAWWW, PRETTY DADDY * There is something so damn beautiful about a man who will let his daughter do his hair. And wear the bow with pride long after she has gone to bed. ❤️
