Holy crapoly. She is here. She is here. My second tiny human is here! What the heck am I supposed to do with such a tiny baby again? Can someone please tell me? … And … Why is there a bunch of fuzz floating around where memories of the first few weeks of my FIRST tiny human’s life should be??!! Was I asleep …like…the entire time? Probably. WTF. (more…)

My Real Birth Story – Cath Lankford

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Mumma, My Real Birth Story Series / / 0 comments

My Real Birth Story – Cath Lankford Pregnancy a second time is a weird thing. It’s as if you’re a glutton for punishment! I mean yes, you hopefully get another beautiful baby out of it, but you know what’s coming the whole time. You know that at the end of the process there is something the size of a BASKETBALL that needs to exit a very tiny hole to get out of your body… (more…)

Babies Are Time Stealers

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

Oh Em Gee. Babies, huh?! God DAMN they are gorgeous and hilarious. Yes they are, but they can also be the craziest of time stealers. And when I say that babies are time stealers, I mean that they LITERALLY MAKE TIME DISAPPEAR for their parents without anyone ever noticing! I am not even kidding. I swear to god, I am so busy with the baby every day (and the toddler for that matter), that I get up in the morning, think about the long day ahead, FUCKING blink and all of a sudden it’s bed time.AND FOR THE FREAKING LIFE OF MY I HAVE GOTTEN NOTHING DONE ALL DAY. Although…hooray for bedtime! Woo! Let me explain this phenomenon further. (more…)

The Best Mothers Day Ever.

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

So, I have this thing with Special Days. I feel an uncontrollable and unbridled excitement for any kind of Special Day, whether it be Christmas, Birthdays, Mothers Day, Fathers Day or… really… just any day of the week. And I always hope, NAY EXPECT, others around me to share it too. But the problem is that my abnormal levels of enthusiasm means I expect too much, and regardless of what occurs, I find myself disappointed. It’s ridiculous I know. I should have been a freaking Christmas Elf. (more…)

Toddlers Gone Wild

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

There is something that happens to a toddler when a newborn sibling enters the world. Something extraordinary. Something astounding. Something semi horrific. The toddler that was once sweet and loving and gorgeous turns unexpectedly into something … different… And let me tell you, that something is…at least 45% monster. Sigh. (more…)

The Musings Of A Four Month Old Baby

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Mumma / / 0 comments

Ever wonder what goes through the mind of a super bald teeny tiny baby? I know I sure do. Instead of coming out of my hoo-ha speaking English as any good baby should, she babbles, squeals, snorts and squirms in my arms, and I have absolutely NO idea what she is talking about. Sigh. (more…)

Sigh, sometimes we are too busy “werking” and wrangling two very tiny and rather titchy kids to really hang out with each other. . And when we actually do get time to hang, our time together usually consists of Netflix binging in an exhausted stupor on the couch where we might occasionally touch a hand accidentally as he passes me the popcorn. #HowsThatForAction . And smooches? Ain’t nobody got time for dat! 😂 Ain’t no body got time for much of anything other than running our eyeballs over our favourite shows for an hour or so before bed.... . In many ways he and I are very different, but at our fundamental core we are the same. . We love hard (tho I show it waaaaay more because I am COMPLETELY fuelled by emotion), and we occasionally both drool on the couch as we fall asleep side by side. . That’s romance. That’s Amore. Lol. . What’s the thing you and your partner like to do the most together (keep it clean people! 🤪) Leave a comment below - I would love to hear all about it! ❤️❤️❤️ . Ps stunning pic by the Netflix lover (just guessin’) @jessworrallphotography

You can’t reason with them, you can’t negotiate. Because we don’t negotiate with these tiny terrorists do we? 😂😂 Not the kind that holds your sanity hostage for no reason other than its Tuesday and they want eggs except they don’t want eggs but they do but they don’t but they do but they don’t, anyway. Sigh. And they do it so bloody often. #FourYearOldsAreInsane 😳 . Lucky for him, it turns out that I am as obsessed with this little legend as I am frustrated with him at times. He is a beautiful soul. One whose mood swings can give me whiplash of course, and one whose sanity I also have to question when he cries just because it’s 6 o’clock. Sigh. . But he loves hard. He loves well. And he may be a little crazy at this age, but he is OUR crazy little four year old... . So, head to the link in my bio and read all about why 4 year olds are so crazy, and then come back here and tell me - what crazy things is your little one up to these day’s? .

He wasn’t a wild child who got into scraps and scrapes, or came home with holes through his clothes. No sir, not my boy. 🙅🏻‍♀️ . *Insert extreme eye-rolls and scoffing here* 🙄 . And then he got older and he... he... changed. These days he body slams his friends just to say hello. He falls down more times than he stands up. And I bloody swear to gawd that he actually bathes in dirt sometimes. 🤷🏻‍♀️ . And then holes started appearing in all of his clothes. In the seat of his pants and his knees mostly. Sigh. I mean, how does someone’s butt make an actual hole? Honestly. . But thankfully we discovered @frankie_and_roy . Boy oh boy, this awesome brands clothing has actually stood up to the vigorous testing performed by my boy as he swan dived off the cubby house, copped a knee to the face and rolled around our entire backyard just for fun. . And now I’m off to buy some more new pants, not because they are worn out, but because he bloody outgrew them didn’t he... sigh. . Do you find your little ones go through their clothes quicker than you can say “holy hell pass me the credit card” too? . What are your favourite go to brands? Tag them in the comments below and share the ❤️ . Ps gorgeous pic of my boy trying his best to rip his clothes apart by @nataliedaviesphotography

Which means that my mascara has been swiped down my face until it almost touches my chin. #TooLazyToCleanMyFaceUp . So, when I was putting this girl babe to bed tonight she studied my face frowning. “What is dat mummy?” She asked, pointing at my cheek. . “It’s mummas makeup, my love”. I replied. . Meanwhile she turns my head from side to side comparing my cheeks. . “Dat one nice mumma” she said pointing to my clean cheek. “But dat one so dirty” she said pointing to the other. “Yuck, go clean it” she demanded. . Bossy boots. I didn’t realise they would be made so bossy so young. Sigh. #WhatTheHeckDoesThisMeanForWhenSheIsBiggerLol . Who else has a little bossy boots on their hands? Tell me the bossiest thing that they have said to you in the comments below ❤️❤️❤️❤️ .

To the point that the bushy bearded one sometimes needs to run away and hide, because the smaller sassy one follows him around relentlessly shouting “Daddy Look At Me! Daddy Look What I Can Do!” at which point he trips over, rolls around for a bit before standing up with a flourish thinking he has just performed the most intense gymnastic feats. Alas, he did not. 😳 . But at the end of the day, they are total besties. They cuddle a lot, they play a lot, and the way the Hairy Husband smiles when the boy gets over excited about the sportiest of sporty things is bloody priceless. . I hope they always have the same friendship and love that they do now. ❤️❤️ . Who else’s tiny person is completely in love with their bigger person? Leave a comment below and tell me all about them ❤️❤️❤️❤️ . Ps rad 📸 by the full of love @jessworrallphotography . The boys jumper by @threadsforboys_ The boys pants by @kippkids
