missing this face today. any other working parents catch themselves scrolling through their camera roll at their desk, just waiting until they get to go home for some baby QT? 🙋🏼♀️ #workingmom#babyblues#sonnywilder
Sometimes you just need to reach out and believe it or not sharing my worries with strangers on Instagram is easier for me to do than with friends and family in person. This pic pretty much sums up where I am at the moment. Most days I truck along pretty good full of smiles but days like today hit hard and I struggle to leave the house. I won’t let it consume me, my goal today is to get to Playcentre not for me but for Lottie to start to make some little friends and explore the world around her with bet she is as sick of these 4 walls as me :-) #anxiety#babyblues#mumlife#mumnz networknz #support#reallifemotherhood#wecandothis#mummyof3#mumof3#mylifeasmum
Foto dessa neném careca para avisar que tem vídeo novo no canal falando dessa fase, em que ela era recém nascida e eu passava por um puerpério e baby blues um pouco difíceis. Corre lá para saber mais sobre essa fase, link na bio 💕 #puerpério#babyblues
And just like that I have a ONE year old!! What a crazy journey parenthood is... it is like nothing you have ever experienced before and you really can’t prepare for it. But I survived my first year as a mama... and I’m so proud of myself! •
Sometime we need to take a moment to reflect on our achievements, on what we have learnt and how far we’ve come... so wherever you are on your journey in life or motherhood, I invite you to take a moment to reflect on one thing you have done well, something you are proud of or something you have achieved in the past year!!
When I first laid eyes on my daughter I couldn’t believe how quickly everything else faded. I knew that I’d do anything for her. .
And that’s the problem - as moms, we’ll do anything for our kids. Including neglecting ourselves. Forgetting to eat properly (or at all). Not taking time to exercise or let our minds find peace, because we have to make sure our kids want for nothing. And somehow we’ve deceived ourselves into thinking that makes us heroes. .
But let’s be real here - all that really does is make us super crabby. And tired. And impatient. We feel like we’re at our wits end. And because we’ve neglected ourselves in order to give our kids everything they want, we can’t give them the one thing they need - a happy and confident mom.
There is no shame in feeling different after having a baby. It's okay if you've found yourself crying. If you found yourself frustrated. If you found yourself not wanting anyone to know or judge you. But the truth is it's okay to ask for help or to talk to others. You'll be surprised how many moms can relate to you and how supportive they are! .

My cheeky girl. This weekend I was sitting on the sofa watching Scarlett in her jumperoo and watching her play so independently and all of a sudden I burst in to tears.
1 - because I am so proud
2 - where has my tiny baby gone?
3 - I see a massive change in my baby this week in terms of her development
4 - I blinked and suddenly my baby is 5 and a half months old ..
The list goes on... I guess this moment stood out to me, I thought back on my pregnancy and through the 5 and a half months Scarlett has been in this world .. and all I can say is I am proud. Proud of myself for getting through some pretty tough days to begin with which I thought some days I wouldn’t get through, proud of daddy for everything he does and for helping me when I’ve been at my lowest. And then, most of all .. proud of Scarlett every day #lucky#blessed#pregnancy#baby#babyfever#babyblues#postnatal#mumblog#5monthsold#babiesofinstagram#development#mummy#daddy#babygirl#lifestyleblogger#proudmoments#thelittlethings
