Have you ever wondered what other people get up to on an ordinary day? Do they parent the same? Do they clean (or…um…ignore cleaning) the house the same? Do they roll their eyes eleventy billion times over their children ridiculous antics the same? Yes? Well, then this is the article for you. (more…)

Diary Of A Crazy Baby – 18 Months Old

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

Woah Nelly. Am I getting old, or are the baby and her brother wearing me out? Probably both. Sigh. I am not even kidding, the kids are moving so fast these days that I almost need a sit down just to watch them lol. I can even feel my bones creaking inside me as I watch their youthful energy and exuberance speed past me like The Mini Flashes they are. (more…)

How You Know You Are Doing A Great Job As A Mum.

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

Sometimes it’s hard being a Mum. Sometimes it’s really very bloody hard. I mean please don’t get me wrong because I love being a Mum. I love this job, it’s the greatest job in the world and most of the time it can be incredibly fulfilling. But sometimes it is as rough as nails. SOMETIMES you spend each day longing to toss the kids in bed for the night. And SOMETIMES you want to throw something out of the window in a fit of rage. Might be yourself. Might be the kids. Might be the dog who just got under your feet so bad that they knocked you onto the floor and then ate all of the pancakes you just made even though you have a freaking cold and you DESPERATELY wanted to be in bed but you made them anyway coz you know it would make your kids smile. #ATotalLegendForAtLeastThirtyWholeSecondsLol #BloodyDog (more…)

I never wanted to be a teacher (too many kids screaming in one small room). I never wanted to be a doctor (I’m a sympathetic spewer). I never wanted to be a train driver (I look terrible in uniforms). And I never wanted to be a dancer (I’m way too much of a bogan to be “sexy”) . However, one thing I did always enjoy was writing, and once I had my son I decided to start my blog. For the love of it. For the connection. To share my story and journey with others. And it’s not my job now, but one day I’d like it to be. You know, when I grow up just a bit more. Obv’s. . So tell me - what did you want to be when you grew up? Are you where you thought you would be? Let me know in the comments below! Xx . Ps rad pic by the amazing @jessworrallphotography . The babe wears her @luluandmilly headband and her @jamiekay knit ❤️

She has been two for almost a month now, but boy oh boy am I in denial and I suspect she is too. “I’M YOUR BABY!” she shouts at me when I refuse to pick her up for the eleventy billionth time that day because #ZeeGirlIsHeavy. She really knows how to kick you in the guilt box by pointing out how (not) tiny and frail she is (not). . It’s funny how these kids can grow up into tiny tyrants, and yet when I look at her, all I STILL see is my little baby. My little bald tiny person. My sassy pants angel child. ❤️❤️ . I can’t help but feel that time is passing by way too quickly for this mumma to handle. And I want it to slow the frick down before I get a case of the nervous poo’s about missing “the moments”. 😭 . Which is why I write these diaries of her life. I wish I did it for her brother... because as time goes on these is so much that will be forgotten. And yet so much I want to treasure. ❤️ . So head to the link in my bio, and read all about the last month (cough... or two) of life with this little lady. And then come back here and tell me what memory you want to treasure of your tiny little person ❤️

When we fluff around making loads of New Years Resolutions that we intend to keep but never do. Sigh. . So this year I have given the thought of any resolutions the ole’ heave freaking ho. Coz #aintnobodygottimeforthat . You know, the makin’ and then the breakin’ of all of the things. Nope. . What the actual heck are you going to do next year then, you ask? . Oooh well I’m so glad you asked! . Next year I will be focusing on bringing more happiness to myself and my family. However that may be. . Coz those munchkins right there deserve a mumma who is happy, present and full of as much love as they are. And so does the big old hairy dude (and I repeat OLD ... jokes ... ) . So that’s what I’m gonna do. Find the love, look for the laughter, and be the happiness that every family needs and wants. . And I can’t bloody wait. ❤️❤️ . Are you building a list of New Years Resolutions this year? Or are you gonna focus on one thing only like me? Tell me all about it below! ❤️ .

From my very over-excitable family to yours, we would like to wish you all a very very VERY Happy and Safe Christmas. 🎄🎄🎄 . And I would like to take a moment just to say a big fat thank you to each and every one of you for supporting my blog again this year - I appreciate and love every single one of you so damn much. And I am so beyond grateful for every post you have read, liked and commented on over the last year ❤️ Because, I honestly couldn’t do this without you all behind me cheering me on ❤️ . So thankyou a million, billion, eleventy trillion times over and may this holiday be as special for you as it has been for me. 😘😘 . Oh, and yes, this is the obligatory Christmas photo of the kids. Yes, our daughter is HATING it, and naturally because she is hating it, our son is totally loving it. #Jerks . May there have been no tears, only laughter and love in your household today. 🤪🤪 . Love, Ellyn, The Hairy Husband, The Wee Man and The Girl Babe xxx
