Breastfeeding is a roller coaster! One minute I have way too much milk and need to block feed, and the next minute we are on every 6 hours and my supply is dropping. I know we don’t have to worry in terms of weight, we have a beautiful Buddha baby who is already in 00 clothing but he still needs to eat and it’s so hard when he is now suckling for more as we try and build up again ugh. I’m getting him on the boob as much as possible, applying Fennel around my breast in between, and just trusting my body knows what to do 🙏 📷 Alice McKay
I could actually start a list of weird things I am trying to learn to do of late 😂😂😂 first it was brewing my own Kombucha, today I made a natural soy wax candle scented with essential oils 🤷🏼♀️ I didn't want one filled with synthetic fragrances, but I didn't want to pay a fortune either 💸💸💸 it was super easy, was quicker than writing this post, and the combo of orange cinnamon and cedarwood smells amazing 🍊 I did melt too little wax but I'll know for next time 😉
So much growing the past 6 months! One thing I didn’t think about with having a baby is there is no state of “normal” for sleep, feeds, milestones etc. Nothing stays the same for longer than maybe a few weeks. He is constantly changing his normal and I love it. Nothing in this world compares to watching this miniature human change and grow 💛

I have been super MIA for a little while now, not intentionally but the wedding chaos is definitely consuming my life (and my house) and truthfully I haven’t really felt inspired by instagram lately.
But we are still alive, just getting through one of the craziest times of my life.. seriously why does everything seem to happen all at once?! Enjoy a throwback of my boys before I spam your feeds with wedding and honeymoon snaps 😍 #ZanderSkinner #RaisingSkinners
Tapware, showers, door handles, towel racks, kitchen cupboards, grout, carpets, flooring, paint, plasterboard/Gyprock - since I unfortunately need to say that in 2019 -, tiles, windows. Fixtures and fittings are the "bones" of your home.These are items the whole household "uses" every single day - and are not too precious with at the best of times. If a cost-per-wear equivalent was done it would be minuscule. A new throw, plants, towels, lamps, and bed linen are all easy-peasy to replace. Changing the flooring after 5 years due to poor quality, or having to re-grout whole bathrooms, is an expense entirely in its own category. #doyourresearch#doitoncedoitright#lesswaste

SHARING MY STORY
Has been a part of my healing, I never started telling my story for six years after healing.
While going through my journey, I locked down.
I was in my own bubble.
I find it hard at times being out in the world and having no reason to hide under the covers from time to time. I'm 50% introvert + 50% extrovert. While I love sharing my story, I could do it too much and I'm not sure how many more times I will do it.
HOWEVER what it has done, is lead me to a place of Executive Coaching. In some ways it's what o have always done, just now with the title.
AND I flipping love it.
I thought when I first started sharing my story it would lead down the "wellness" path.
BUT no business is my thing and working with clients that strive for gold standard behaviour.
Feeling grateful today that I got to share my story with an awesome bunch of year 13s.
🙏 for there time
🙏 awesome questions
🙏 they put up with the awesome destraction of my wanna by a speaker on stage with a mic Mr7.
Feeling grateful today, I have laughed more today than in a long time. It's like a wee fog has lifted and happiness is running through me again.
Thank you for returning old friend, you always return when I don't take myself so bloody seriously.
Well this stint of solo parenting is almost over and these kids have definitely been missing their daddy.. The extra daily tantrums and the crazy overtired behavior has for sure been worth it for the longer hugs and snuggles I’ve gotten!! Only the strong survive 💪🏻

Zeus got his jersey tonight! And it’s maroon like Salpointe 😂 I wanted him to be number 1 but this is close enough ♥️
This was me..
Now I’m tired #mumlife .... and strong.
Anxiety & Depression sucks but you can find light at the end of the tunnel.
You can learn to manage it and not let it consume you.
The number one thing is Mindset!
If You work on it, you can learn to pull yourself back into line when your minds gone too far , you can know when to ask for help (I need to learn to do this more constructively 😡😂) when to rest, and when it’s ok to let it all out and then how to move on.
Sounds easy but i know it isn’t, but the thing is it can be done! Small steps all lead to big changes.
Keep pushing, keep fighting!

I promised you a peak into our wellness box this month. So many Xmas goodies.
It's my favourite time of the month when I get to bring these goodies home. Thank you essentially rewards.
Keep Smoiling 🙂
How fun is it dressing a newborn? Mine all scream the minute their clothes come off! I remember with my first I was petrified of doing it, infact so much so I used to get my mum to change her as I used to feel bad that she was crying 😭 uncontrollably! By number 5 now I think I could do it with my eyes closed 😂😂😂 #newbornlife#changingababy#itsnotforthefainthearted#mumlife#mumoffive#babyn5
FUN FACT // I lived in Waco for two years while my husband finished law school (Sic ‘Em Bears 🐻) Our first apartment was a block away from The Silos. I’d take our pup on walks there, grab breakfast on the weekends before the lines got crazy. Hard to believe how much our lives have changed since then. Waco will always have a special place in our hearts ✨

Mr7 was my sidekick today. He smacked his head on a steel beam, so I picked him up before I did a talk. 😳
What was I thinking!
He obviously listened. However had ants in his pants and made a sign for the girls...... "I shouldn't be here". When he said he wanted to come he didnt realise it was a girls only school. 🤣 he took two steps in to the school + halted "Mum, I shouldn't be here"
He loves hearing me speak but wants to be up with me. So he came up during Q+A.
All in all it was great + he was pretty funny.
Why do babies look SO adorable with their ears pierced please!?!! I can’t deal with it, also why does it make them look SO SO grown up!? Like she’s no longer a tiny baby but a whole little girl 😭😭
Anywho, back to the photo, I bet none of you will believe me when I tell you that my five year old, yes my F I V E year old took these photos🙊
he asked to take a photo of me, and I fully thought they’d come out looking like poop, but nope I think this tells me to have faith in my tiny human that is apparently a photographer now🤷🏽♀️ #mumanddaughter#mygang

🍂Ärgerst du dich wenn andere unfreundlich zu dir sind?
Neigst du dazu, dir einzureden, dass es an dir liegt?
Dann geht es dir schlecht.
Wie wäre es, wenn du das Problem bei den anderen lässt?
Deren Unfreundlichkeit hat etwas mit deren Unzufriedenheit zutun.
Ausserdem bekommen Menschen die einem schlechtes wünschen und negativ sind genau das im Leben zurück.
As we have been learning our eyes... ears.... nose... mouth... and the rest of our body.... We have become very fussy about hands and feet if cuffs are covering them. It’s fun to watch our little humans grow and develop their own little personalities and idiosyncrasies. I think my boy is going to be a lot more organized than me. He is very concerned about putting things ‘back’ and having everything in its proper place. We learn all sorts of lessons from these little humans don’t we?! #bondibaby#toddlerlife#mumlife#momlife#strongsexymammas@strongsexymammas 👗 @amandauprichard 📸 @boraluknar
