Yep. So I am 31 weeks, and I have nine weeks to go. Nine weeks???!! Say whhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Holy Freaking Jelly I cannot believe we are this far along. I mean, I have lived every second of this pregnancy so I am completely eyeballingly aware of where I am at realistically, but as every week ticks over I find myself completely shocked crapless all over again.

This parenthood business hey? I mean, wowsa. What a ride. I know that I have said this before, but there is so much that you just don’t think about before you have kids. So much that goes unsaid. So much that you can never ever plan for. (more…)

My Real Birth Story – Tamla Verban

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

My name is Tamla and I’m the Mama behind the small business, Bubakin. Essentially my birth stories are what shaped my business! Both my boys were born at home with two midwives and just my husband and I in blissful peaceful surroundings. So I will endeavour to write them both here in short. I really believe sharing stories is our first step to being the empowered birthing goddesses we really are. After all, our bodies were designed to have babies! (more…)

My Real Birth Story – Emily Whishaw from Mummy Couture Um, HI! (*waves*) I’m Emily from Mummy Couture. I started my little online business at 8 months pregnant with my second bub because I’m a workaholic and hate being a stay at home mum! (oops, did I just say that out loud?). I’m a Chartered Accountant by trade and LOVE everything small business. After 8 years of living in London, my hubby, daughter and I returned to Oz this year. With baby number no. 2 on the way I started to dread my impending maternity leave and finding myself stuck in the zombie mum routine of eat, feed, sleep, clean, repeat, so I took the opportunity to start the online business I always talked about starting. Mummy Couture offers stylish and affordable baby friendly accessories, fashion and gifts for mums. Because why should babies get all the nice things? Whist it is hard juggling mum life with building a business, I’ve learnt SO much and met some amazing mumprenuers also hustling away while breastfeeding and wiping bums. (more…)

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
