Let’s do this Monday 👊🏻💓 Tough week ahead but Monday, you will breath life into me and set my week up for a successful, stress-free, grateful week. 💓
Tomorrow we say goodnight to my Gran & I’m gutted I can’t find the pictures from my phone of her with my boys, guilty I didn’t spend enough time with her, angry with myself that I didn’t back up my photos & take more 😪
But I will be grateful for the memories I do have from those times and hold on to them to dearly. Monday does not mean we will dwell on the bad it means we will start again and be thankful that I had her in my life 💓

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! 🥂🍾
After an amazing day yesterday celebrating my birthday with the immediate family, I am planning to apply some of my brand new @benefitcosmeticsuk “cake” and in a change to my usual routine go network with a small group of fellow female entrepreneurs.
Then home for present opening and cake with the boys before glamming up for a night on the town with @tim_spurr_1
What a way to start the week! Happy Monday 💕

🔸oh hello monday 🔸
All snug next to Zac and not wanting to get up but he cannot wait to show his friends his new hair and he is also finally allowed to have packed lunch from today after 18mths of not eating the school dinners 😭
Nero is calling me for a xmassy coffee so time to get up 🙊😍 #boymodel#kidsstyle#mumofboys
Found this PERFECT shelf on the side of the road yesterday 🙏🏼👌 there's a reason I never bought shelving - even after going to the shops TWICE 🤪 to find right ones.
POOP STATION CHECKLIST:
Toys for distraction
Am I missing anything mamas???
Thanks @eventinnaloo and @universalpicsau for having us along to the Perth Premier of the new @grinchmovie on Saturday. 🎥 🍿 We had the greenest and grinchiest time! Thanks for putting on a great morning. The kids had a ball and were captivated by the fake snow, bubbles and Xmas Cookie decorating station ( hence why Max is MIA stuffing his face! 🤤) but it’s a rad kids movie all kids should see. We have a huge soft spot for the Grumpy Grinch!! Put it on your school holiday to do list. 3 things scare me about this pic: 1: Its a Xmas movie which means we are also now starting to think about all things Xmas!! Help! 2. I’ve never been to a movie as early as 9am hence coming straight from training a sweaty mess so apologise I was not looking festive in red and green like the other mums but I had a cheery red face like Santa after a hard day work going in and out of chimneys 🤣. 3. Cooper is a giant 🤣🤣 Also does anyone else sometimes shed a little tear in kids movies? I admit I always do!🙈 #bigheart#bigkid#thegrinchpremiere#thegrinch#perthkids#perthmums#mumsinperth#perthtodo#eventinnaloo#mumofboys
🐑WONKY WINDMILL FARM🐄
A hands on farm and eco park a short drive from Margaret River that will have your kids in awe. The animals are so friendly, you’re able to feed and pat them and the older kids can learn all about their nature from the experienced staff. Definitely recommend and there are play & BBQ areas to make a day of it. We went just before the drive back to Perth to get ourselves a peaceful car ride home 😉👌🏼 #nexttripwillbewinerydriven#somehowwilliamdominatedthistrip 🤷🏼♀️
I mean c’mon, who doesn’t stick their tongue out when they’re concentrating? Right?
There aren’t many toy shops where you can feast on meatballs and chips, fill your car with candles and practical storage solutions, all while your little one is looked after in the creche of dreams. Just when I thought I couldn’t love @IkeaUK more, they sent over some of their fantastical LUSTIGT collection of toys for Cas and I to play with. The LUSTIGT toys spark imagination, engage the whole family and look amazing too! The toys are so clever in that they have no rules or boundaries, which immediately made me want to get down on the floor and join in with Cas – something I should do more of, but the usual primary coloured, bleeping, plastic tat doesn’t inspire me much!
The LUSTIGT toy collection was designed to be timeless and made from materials that last or can be easily recycled – so top wholesome-parent points. Ranging from mind-focusing games that develop logical thinking to high-energy activities to get everyone moving, all the games have one thing in common – there’s no start or end and no set rules. Perfect for keeping everyone off the screens and spending time together. #Ad#wonderfuleveryday#letsplay#ikeauk#getdownandplay#ikeatoys#ikeafillsmyparentingcup#mumofboys#christmasgifts#christmaslist#meatballandchipsandtoys#raisingboys#motherofsons#familytime#afamilythatplaystogether

I think the last hour has been one of the most precious moments I’ve had since becoming a mummy to these two little boys 🖤
All three of us were sat snuggled on the sofa, fire on, all cosy in our newly decorated living room watching Polar Express 🚂 It’s the first year that Klayton has understood and been really into Christmas films and at the same time, Parker fell asleep on me, exactly how he is in this picture. His always been the cuddlier one and I think he’d lay on me all day if he had the choice. The fact the boys could bare being this close to each other whilst enjoying a Christmas movie I love and giving me the best cuddles is a memory I will treasure forever 🎅🏼 Christmas will always bring back the special memories and will always hold a special place in my heart and it’s such a loving and happy time of the year. Presents mean nothing, it’s all about family 💖🎄

Noah spent the day with my family whilst Andrew, Jude and I had a little mooch around Richmond, an early dinner and quality time spent just the three of us. It was very quiet not having Noah with us but it was also so nice to be able to give Jude all of our attention and focus... poor little man usually has to take the backseat.
Does anyone else who has more than one child really struggle to get the balance right? Some days I feel like poor little Jude hasn’t had half the amount of attention he deserves because Noah constantly wants me to himself. Mum life is so blimin hard sometimes... the mum guilt is real!
I don’t know why but when Monday rolls around I try to eat healthy! It might have something to do with all the party food we had on the weekend 🥳 .
I’ve been using @aldiaustralia Samson paper towels for a few years and was delighted to see they were part of the 2019 Product of the Year awards recently.
Of course I use the paper towels for normal things like soaking up spills and wiping down dirty faces but it’s also great for drying our veggies after we’ve given them a wash. Because it’s thick and quilted I find it doesn’t leave any wet tissue on our veggies that I have to peel off (one of my pet peeves).
Have you tried these paper towels?
