Right people… Hands up who has a toddler!! *Throws both hands up into the air and shakes them about wildly* And hands up who sometimes thinks that toddlers were ONLY put on this earth to test the absolute frick out of you?!! *Throws hands up in the air SO HARD this time that I fear my arms may disconnect themselves from my actual body* Well, let me tell you a story or two. About the times when the toddler tried to absolutely break me. (more…)

The ABC’s of Crazy Kids

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Mumma / / 0 comments

Aaaah, Kids. Crazy, Crazy Kids. There is something about those teeny tiny humans of ours that can relentlessly push all of the buttons, and yet at the same time instil such a fierce love within us that it fills us almost to bursting. (more…)

What The Bloody Hell Did I Just Say #MumLife

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

Sigh…mum life, hey? Sometimes as a mum of two, I feel like my life is one big show but one that I don’t really understand. One where I never really know if it’s just a big laugh or not, or one where the joke is totally and always on me. I wonder it ALL of the time. Do you? Let me explain. (more…)

Diary of a Crazy Baby – Four Months Old

Ellyn Shepherd / Baby, Bloggity Blog, Diary Of A Crazy Baby, Mumma / / 0 comments

Eat. Play. Sleep. Repeat. That is my life now, right there in that sentence. It’s like Groundhog day over and over again (read about my Groundhog experience with my firstborn son here). And don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I forgot just how monotonous having a baby can be. Monotonous Monotonous Monotonous. Someone get me out of the house Monotonous. (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…)

These two spent all yesterday fighting at the in-laws house because The Girl was jealous AF that her brother - the sicky mc-sicko - was totally and unexpectedly trolling in on her special alone time with her nonna and Pa. #ThisIsMYTimeBrother #ErmagawdStopCoughingOnMeAlreadyBro . But today? Today they loved each other hard. Yasssss! 😍😍😍 If my heart could cry it would be leaking disgusting tears of sunshine right on outta my body right now. #EwGross This affection went on and on and on and on and ooooooooon all day. It was so beautiful that I became one of those annoying humans who kept yelling “NAWWWWW I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!” in their general direction. I became THAT mother. 😂 . And it reinforces why I became a mumma in the first place. The love, the cuddles, the sweetness, the giggles. The non-jerkiness ❤️❤️❤️❤️ . It makes those shitful times where they whack each other in the face for no reason, steal each other’s toast, or when they tell me that I am their least favourite parent all so worth it ❤️ . What kind of day did your kids have today? Were the haters be hatin’ or were they loved up and lovely? Leave a comment below and tell me all about it ❤️❤️❤️
Instagram post 2175436144041045636_2224857444 * Y U P. M E. L E G E N D . * . Have you ever experienced one of those moments in life - where you do something kinda regular not-really-that-big-of-a-deal, but you do it in such an epically and unexpectedly amazingly way that it stays with you forever and you high five yourself every time you think about it #YouRockstarYou! 🙏🏻 . Well I have had two of those moments. Well, probably a whole heck of a lot more, but these two totally probably-insignificant moments have stayed with me and still make me smile to this day... 😆 . Now, let tell you about, well... one of them. ❤️ . Moment 1. . Picture this. Grade 4. . A girl who hated to run (or do anything really except sing Mariah Carey) lined up with 3 fellow students ready to start the obstacle race of a LIFETIME. Jay. Adrian. Meagan. And a much younger version of myself who was pooping her pants, and wanting to just get the losing part over with already. Sigh. . The starting gun went off. BOOM! And off they run. The two girls falling quickly behind whilst the two (bloody fast) boys sped off around the course, miles ahead. #tinyjerks . Zip! Over the hurdles they went. Vroom! Around the hoopy things they flew. They ran so fast that I swear we ate their dust. . And then it happened. . The boys made it to the skipping ropes, which was the final “obstacle” in the race. They had to skip 100 times before they could run to the finish line, and let me tell you, those boys couldn’t skip to save themselves. #SuckedInKidlets . There were arms flying, feet tripping, and grass eaten. . My crowning moment came when I - like the skipping extraordinaire I was - reached the rope and skipped my little heart out. I kicked ass. That rope FLEW! And because of my inCREDIBLE skipping ability I somehow made it over that finish line first, to win the race. . It was my moment. It was beautiful. . And I still get the happy shivers every time I think about it. . Have you had a glory moment like this? Tell me all about it below and let’s be legends together 🙌🏻🙌🏻 .

Instagram post 2171798125354641560_2224857444 * S W E A R B E A R ! * . Do you have a tiny Sweary McSwear Bear in your family? . I still remember clear as day when this dude dropped a bunch of bananas out of the supermarket trolley, before standing up and yelling at the top of his lungs “Oh F&$k! Oh F&$k! Oh F&$k!” . I didn’t know whether to be crazily proud of him or disgusted that he was so verbally colourful in the fruit and veg section at Coles 🤔 . What’s the most hilariously sweary thing your tiny person has accidentally (possibly on purpose) said? Tell me in the comments below! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 . *Warning - potential Sweary McSwear words in the comments - cover your eyes if needed 😂* . Ps. This hilariously sweary Toddler Milestone card is by the equally hilarious and sweary @seriously_milestones 🙌🏻🙌🏻❤️❤️
Instagram post 2166732332241769125_2224857444 * T H E P E R F E C T D A Y ! * . Although this picture was from another day, today was a great day. A bloody bloody bloody great day. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ And after a whole bunch of shitful ones it was so super appreciated. . I was in a crappy mood this morning because I woke up more tired than before I went to bed (just call me Mrs You-Look-Exjausted-No-I-Think-That’s-Just-My-Face-Now Shepherd) so I didn’t have a lot of hope for today. . But that self-induced rocky start the family really turned the sunshine on for me. . I took The Girl babe to our local Kmart so we could update our $19 blow up swimming pool from last year to the obviously now totally high end $29 variety, where she proceeded to wave at strangers and point out things that I didn’t need pointing out... Like, “Look Mummy! Cars!”. Great. “Look Mummy! Sky!”. Yes babe. “Look Mummy! Bin!”. Errrm, woopadeedoo sweetheart. . We brought it home, set it up, and alternated between in it splashing with joy until we realised how cold we were, and basking in the sunshine till we dried off again, all day until bedtime. . We shivered in the icy water, we sweated when we got out, we ate cold fruit, finished the day off with fish and chips and we laughed continuously. . This day is what I live for. It was a perfect day. And it’s what life is all about. I am so grateful for today. ❤️ . What is your idea of a perfect day? Tell me all about it in the comments below xx .
