DAY 22: I Love Christmas…Because Doughnuts (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

I have an obsession with Christmas themed Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I discovered their existance 4 years ago when a friend bought us a box as a gift. Since then, I have looked forward to having them every December. It has almost become a second religion to me! I honestly don’t know what it is about these

DAY 20: You Don’t Have to Move to the Suburbs to Have Kids (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Today was a really hot day in Melbourne so we did the only logical thing- jumped into the pool. I’m so thankful we have a pool at our apartment. It’s a decent size, well maintained by our very dedicated building manager, and totally underutilised. Clearly there aren’t many swimmers in our building and I’m not

DAY 19: Just Rolling Through The Day…and Night (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Just a normal quiet day at home today. We learned about water displacement through a little science experiment, made fluffy slime, did lots of drawings, dressed up, watched shows, and messed up the entire house about three times over. Putting rocks, pebbles and Shopkins in cups/bottles of water to test how each object causes the

DAY 17: Miss 4.5’s Act That Thawed My Icy Heart (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

It’s been a really nice weekend with family over. Miss 21mo seems to have recently developed a fear of crowds though and has been screaming and clinging to me through every party/gathering. For some reason, it’s not been bothering me mentally/emotionally this weekend though, whereas obviously it would usually be quite straining having a crying

DAY 16: Why We’re Still Co-Sleeping at Nearly 2 Years Of Age (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory (HSAM) is a condition where a person is able to effortlessly recall their life experiences in extreme detail, even from the time they were infants. This condition provides interesting insight into life through the eyes of a baby or toddler, since the rest of us mere mortals cannot usually remember much before

DAY 15: Today Was a Good Day (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Day 15 and I feel like a crazy person just talking to myself now 🤔 Hello…hello…hello…Anyone out there…out there…out there… Today was a good day. The kids are feeling better. Public transport was great. It wasn’t pouring rain on us. We actually made it to Miss 4.5’s gymnastic class on time without me having to run the

DAY 14: Contemplating Marriage Over Beyonce (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

When Miss 4.5 is at school and it’s just me and Miss 21mo, I enjoy letting her potter around exploring her environment at her own pace. When her older sister is around, things get a little crazier so it’s nice to have these moments where I’m not rushing her or chasing after one of them or

DAY 13: New Toys & Old Toys (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Miss 21mo seems to be feeling a lot better today which is a relief. In the evening we went to Miss 4.5’s daycare/kindergarten’s annual Christmas party and she had a fantastic time playing and running around. It was so great to see her acting normal again. Earlier in the day, we went to Kmart to do

DAY 12: Are You There, God? (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Today I’m a little mentally tired. Miss 21mo has been sick and clingy for so many days and it has been challenging. My husband has also been tired and grumpy from working and studying so much as his exams looms near. There are no down time for mums though. Mouths need to be fed. Bums need to be
