This is my story. About being a mumma. And being little. Because, by all accounts, I am both. A vertically challenged mother of two (who is crazy original with the blog names).
Interests: Eating a meal while it's still warm, going to the toilet alone, drinking wine through a funnel

I can see them now. Half a dozen women sitting around the kitchen table, sipping on refreshments as the sunlight streams through a nearby window catching the silvery white of their hair. Someone makes a joke and as we watch the group erupt into gales of laughter, we know, we... Continue reading

Oh, STOP! The fake laugh is everything. x
At bedtime a few nights back, he read to me. One minute, you're marvelling at how tiny a human fingernail can be and the next, those same fingers, now permanently grubby under the nails, are turning the pages of Mr Worry and your tiny fingernailed baby is reading all the... Continue reading

I recently turned down the chance to make $1500 for a day’s work. I turned it down because of pride; because of how I might be treated during the work; because of how other people on that job might view me; because someone might recognise me later. I turned it... Continue reading

Almost as good as reading yourself: seeing your kids reading How good is reading? Of all the things I wish I had more time to selfishly pursue, I think books would be number one. Yes, I love shopping and massages, and I imagine getting your nails done must be lovely... Continue reading

I get lots of emails from PR companies wanting me to share the latest and greatest in everything from nappies to family cars and everything little thing inbetween. Sometimes I work with these companies, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I get free stuff or payment, sometimes I don't. I am always... Continue reading

In the interest of transparency, I probably shouldn’t say anything until I show you this; You might have seen them before. These pictures were taken at Harlow’s baptism last year. Yes, I styled it myself. Yes, I trawled Pinterest for hours on end, bargained down a $2 shop employee when... Continue reading

This blog is worse than a real job because I am both the boss and the employee. As a boss I am a relentless jerk and as an employee, a lazy fool. This culminates in the lazy fool generating about 10% of the blog posts the relentless jerk demands. Relentless... Continue reading

Sex and men vacuuming = exact same pleasure level for women! It's practically a mathematical equation. Of course, best results achieved when the man really puts his back into it....

{source} It was his eyes I noticed first. Even from across the room, they mesmerised me. Pale ocean blue. And they were staring straight at me. “Who is that?” I asked my girlfriend. She glanced in the direction I was looking and smiled. Spoke his name. Huh. Stupid nickname. But... Continue reading

Mumma: not to scale I loved Luca’s babyhood hard. He was my first, my only, and the days were wide open and leisurely, if somewhat marred by exhaustion. Luca was an easier baby in that he slept for great stretches during the day, was very happy occupying himself on the... Continue reading

Hi friends! You might be wondering if I've run out of things to say but it's not true. If only you could hop into the shower with me each morning (and then somehow read my mind), you would see that I am writing the most brilliant blog posts of all... Continue reading

Makes sense. I'll be looking to put my Harlow into a 3 hour playgroup next year because I think they need that stimulation. And I forget you guys have wacky school terms that start in the middle of the year! I guess that's so the school break occurs in summer rather than winter, right?
Those are preschool portraits??? Only in New York! Bloody gorgeous kid, she is. These are precious and like you said, really capture Mazzy's blooming personality. But wait, Harlow is starting preschool next year? How old will that make her? My Harlow could start 3-year-old preschool next year but that would make her one of the youngest in her class - in some cases by a whole year.
My first thought about breastfeeding was this: I don’t like having my nipples touched therefore I probably won’t like breastfeeding. It wasn’t that I thought breastfeeding would be weirdly sexual, it was just that I believed that the sensation, sexual or otherwise, would be unpleasant for me. That was back... Continue reading

Coffee. It could be argued it makes the world go round. Me? I don’t drink it. I know, I know, what am I even talking about? Motherhood without coffee is reckless and irresponsible. But if you’ve been reading here long enough, you’ll know I have my own dark liquid vice... Continue reading

I guess I'm going to go back to Wordpress (which I preferred in many ways but which was not as straightforward when it came to having sponsors on your page). I think they now offer a similar package anyway. Seems like a lot of dicking around though.... Sigh.
Saturday, just after midday. I have spent the morning working at a pharmacy in South Yarra. I am wearing a cream blouse and a navy pencil skirt. It is the uniform of the glamorous assistant at the perfume counter at DJs. I am 22. I don’t do glamorous. Or blouses.... Continue reading

Well, this was just clever. But man, I'm so annoyed! I don't think I can be bothered switching....can I?
I thought I should check in with you guyz and give you an idea of where my head is currently at. Sometimes I have a tendency to just drop out of here for a while. I know you understand that it's because life is busy. Hell, most of you probably... Continue reading
