Today was a day 😴 Even into the night busy doing life and getting the behind the scenes ready for work to come back. Took time out from organising things to do a workout. Upper body AMRAP 10 reps of each exercise 40 mins Single arm row (10 each side ) Chest press Squat to bicep curl Single arm press (10 each side ) Plank to downdog ankle reach Tricep kick back to straight arm pulse Squat to alt halos I got in 8 rounds pretty much in the dot. Then after tea went for a walk to the bush and back. Last day of doing classes from home tomorrow. . . . . . . . . . #whataday #busy #behindthescene #upperbody #amrap #homegym #mess #bushwalk #springchallenge #fitforareason #mumlife #youvsyou #goals2020 #getstrong #getfit #fitmum #fitmumlife #personaltrainer #mumswholift #womenwholift #fitfam #fitnessjourney #bodsquad #mumofboys #lovemyboys #boymum #crazyboys
2 weeks ago tomorrow, I had a call from the school “We are really sorry but your son has fallen and we want you to check his arm out because we think it may be broken” There’s me thinking no, it won’t be broken, he’s just trying to get a day off, only for me to get there and his arm was swollen and misshaped. He didn’t cry, didn’t complain... Off we went to minor injuries, x-rayed and he had in fact broke his arm, 2 bones in his arm to be exact. One bad break, one hairline fracture. Now the little monkey is in a cast for atleast another 3 weeks! I never realised how challenging it would be, he had to have a week off school, and we’ve had to adjust to doing things differently! Although the main thing im happy about is that it’s waterproof so he can still bath and shower 👏🏻 All this because he climbed on something he shouldn’t of been climbing on and his ankle gave way...

Hallo, ja wir sind auch noch da.. Nun brechen sie an.. Die letzten 4 Wochen als Baby. Bald ist mein Baby ein Kleinkind. Unglaublich 🙈 die Zeit rast so unfassbar sehr und ich habe jetzt schon nichts anderes im Kopf, außer diesen einen Tag! 🙈 Ich bin so aufgeregt! 🤭😍 Wir habt ihr den 1. Geburtstag eures Kindes gefeiert oder wie werdet ihr ihn feiern? - die momentane Situation lässt viele ja umplanen. Bisher können wir noch so feiern, wie geplant, ich hoffe das bleibt so, aber die ersten drei Leute haben schon abgesagt 🥺 Die Feier mit allen zusammen findet am 28.11 statt, in einem Raum von der Gastronomie, wo ein Familienmitglied arbeitet.. wenn nun keiner weiter absagt, wären wir bei 16 Erwachsenen, ein Schulkind, ein Kleinkind und ein Neugeborenes (auf diesen Tag Fieber ich ebenfalls hin 😍 ). An seinem Geburtstag selbst, also am 26.11. Darf jeder kommen der möchte von morgens bis 19 Uhr frei wählbar. 😊 Ich bin gespannt, wie alles letztendlich wird! Habt einen schönen Montag ❤️ #babyboy #babyboy2019 #novemberbaby #iloveyou #vombabyzumkleinkind #wilhelmshaven #novemberbaby2019 #geburtstag #inlove #boy #erstergeburtstag #november #oktober #montag #boymum #mylove #niedersachsen #corona #baby #11monthsold #11months #monatstag #monthday #love #mamablogger_de #mamasganzerstolz #potd #proudmom #mom #mama
Our little monster 👁️ It's Hallowe'en week at nursery this week, so of course I'm sending Milo in fancy dress! I didn't want to spend too much on something he's only going to wear a maximum of two times, so when I spotted this eyeball tabard in @poundland , I was over the moon! Can anyone guess what he's going to be on Friday? #halloween #dressup #fancydress #spooky #instakids #instamums #instatoddler #toddlerlife #boymum #northeast #mumlife #mamlife #discoverunder3k
I'm loving the wooden toy selection available in shops at the moment. Not only do they look super cute but they're also hard-wearing and long lasting. I've found that a lot of bradys plastic toys tend to break really quickly or he loses parts of them where as these little wooden ones are perfect for his age. #homedecor #toys #playroom #wood #woodentoys #mum #toddler #boymum #toddlermum #play #home #athomewiththebeers #diyonabudget #ourhome

My little man absolutely loves being out and about, especially if it’s outside so he can look at all the trees & sky 🤍✨🌳🍂
Having a very weird few weeks. Will talk about it at some point, but not now, while my brain is still fried. It's half term! Spencer is napping, and then we're going to bundle up and go for a dog walk. Will throw Spencer in the Tula on my back so we can walk them a decent distance while the weather holds out🤞
Happy 8 months Oscar (last friday ) my baby koala giggle monster! 🥰 Sorry we can't do much outside the house in terms of baby groups and softplay in the current situation but we make do and see the positives in all we do. It was also my no-longer- baby niece 17th birthday, @p3nguinl0ver , who is working so hard on her A levels after achieving amazing GCSE results. So proud of you. May you continue to shine as a beautiful young lady you are growing into 😘 p.s. please can you tutor my boys in a few years 😝
We have had the most chilled out weekend in a long time!!! Since daddy has been home and not at work it has been so good, but today I have been up carving pumpkins which I loved😂, they are finished so patiently waiting on Charlie wakening up from his nap so he can have his porridge and we can do our own little photo shoot💙💙
Thank you for all the birthday love yesterday everyone! Sebby had a wonderful day and absolutely loves all his new toys! He’s so happy! 🥳 Now to find somewhere to put it all! 🤦🏻♀️
This is a painting I did for Isaiah’s nursery shortly after he was born. We’ve been reading the Winnie the Pooh stories to him and we’re nearly finished now (if you’re familiar with the books you’ll probably recognise my painting! ). Reading to your child is so good for their development so we try to read to Isaiah as often as we can! I’ve always been fairly creative and have recently been trying to switch my mindset from “where can I get this” to “how can I make this”. It’s been pretty exciting to be able to exercise my creative side whilst also saving money, protecting our health and looking after our planet by using homemade, non toxic and sustainable products. When making the switch it’s so important to be patient and pace yourself! Switching all of your products at once would be so expensive and overwhelming! I’m focusing on any product that we use around Isaiah first. It’s so important to me that we give him the best start possible. His birth was so far from the start that I wanted for him, but I’m trying to give myself grace. Whilst his birth story was totally out of my control I can control the products we use and the food that we give him. That way I can be sure that even though his birth was horrendous, I’ve done everything in my power to help him be as healthy as possible. #winniethepooh #winniethepoohbooks #painting #art #nurserydecor #boymum #traumarecovery #traumaticbirth #nicubaby #nicugraduate #iugrbaby #northernireland #naturalhome #ournaturalhome #christianmummy #preeclampsiasurvivor #healingjourney #nontoxicliving #sustainableliving #ecofriendlyliving #maketheswitch #onestepatatime #nontoxichome #moneysavingmom #moneysaving #naturalliving #healthylifestyle

Shout out to my husband who listens to my “I used to be cool stories” and acts like it’s my first time telling them. Did you know I seen Lady Gaga at a festival and she’s actually a good singer as well as a great performer?! Anyway Lady Gaga has nothing on us because we partied hard all weekend 😉 #mumlife #motherhood #partyparty #toddlerlife #boymum #weekendoffender

Warming up to Halloween with some pumpkin patch for the little munchkin. Alex had miles of fun and enjoyed getting down and dirty to pick his perfect pumpkin. Jumping in muddie puddles was especially a treat! Oscar wasn't too impressed by it all 😂. A little dress up and photoshoot the night before to get us in the pumpkin spirit ☺️.

👦 Boy mum 👦 _________________________________________________ When I found out I was going to be a boy mum I was so excited, since the day I found out I was pregnant I'd only been able to see myself with a little boy but I was also worried about how I could possibly be a good mother to a boy, I'm one of two daughters and my cousins I spend most of my time with were also girls, would he be different? Would I have to learn about "boys toys" and "boys interests" to avoid pushing my interests as a girl onto him? What I've actually learnt is that having a son isn't all that different, not at this young age, and I wanted to share a couple of the things I've learnt. Don't get bogged down by gender stereotypes, I believe a lot in this one, yes Isaac enjoys cars, dinosaurs, tools, but he also loves dolls and pushchairs and doing my hair. I got Isaacs his first little doll just before his first Christmas and had a lady I'd never met tell me I shouldn't be buying my son dolls, this made me question a few of my decisions, am I pushing "girly" onto my son, should I be introducing him to more "boys toys"? And the answer is no, regardless of whether people tell you it's a "girl thing" or a "boy thing" you should offer those opportunities to explore and discover their own interests. Just because you have a son doesn't mean you're going to miss out on quality time. I always expect as Isaac gets older he's going to look up to his dad more, not because he loves him any more but because they're both males, he'll want to take his dad's interests, he already enjoys watching daddy play around with his computer and being involved in his games and I always though I'd get left behind as a mother but it's never the case, he has times where he's watched me do my hair and makeup and will pretend to do it for me, he'll bring me all his cars and use my arms and legs as the roads then want me to do the same to him and he loves to help with baking and cooking! Watching his little face light up when he's looking up to and learning from his dad is the most beautiful thing, you don't have to feel bad about being different and them enjoying activities that just aren't your thing.

First night in 2 years my babies are sleeping in separate rooms! H came home to a big boy bed in his own room today and couldn't be more excited. . . Until it was bed time, when he wanted to go sleep in Coopers room and said "I dont wanna go to bed ever ever again" But with C having night terrors every few nights (they are becoming few and far between *touch wood* ) H needed to be moved into his own room as they scare the absolute bananas out of him as well My heart is breaking, no more cot, means no more baby #mumlife #Cooper #Henry #nomoreroomshare #ownbedrooms #bigboybed #newbed #amartfurniture #anyoneneedacotcosimsellingmineafter6years #boymum #theystillsharealltheirtoys
Happy Monday! How are you going? Both boys are back at school today 👏🙌🎉 Well, for a week anyway. Mr year 12 officially finishes on Friday, then has his exams in Nov. Being an introvert who needs alone time and not being able to have it for 7 months, I really needed to sit and breathe this morning. What better way than with my favourite magazine and a coffee before I get into housework. Friday was a public holiday for us and we'd thought we'd grab a coffee and cake and head to the Botanical Gardens in Williamstown. As you may have seen on my stories, it was so busy! You couldn't get a park anywhere. Same with Altona. So we headed to @destination_eynesbury (we were going to look at a house anyway, as we're looking at moving there ) and had lunch at the homestead/golf club. It was so lovely to be able to eat out, surrounded by people enjoying themselves. The food was fantastic too. Highly recommend. If we learn anything from this year, it's that we should be grateful for the things that make us happy, like family and friends. A meal out with your family. They outdoors and the amazing country we live in. That life isn't about how much "stuff" we have or trying to impress strangers who, in reality, don't give a crap anyway 🤷♀️ What do you think? What have you learned from this year?
You don’t even know how much you are lovedddd 🖤
Forever wondering how we got so lucky with you 🤍 Tagged items gifted from @alexandalexacom
I felt like I needed this on my feed! 🎃🍂 our half term starts tomorrow so I may be slower on messages and emails as I want to enjoy some time with my boys. I am still working away in the evening and there are lots of orders heading out tomorrow 🍂 Hope you have all survived the clock change 🙌🏼🙃 . #taylerandhugo #myteam #boymum #pumpkins #pumpkinpicking #october #halloween #traditions #meettheminimakers
✨27 Weeks Pregnant✨ Man, has this bump grown suddenly. I have no belly button, I have aches in places I didn’t know could ache. I start the day full of energy and drive (ok... SOME energy and drive ), and end the day hobbling about lifting my bump to ease the ache. • Pregnancy is a weird, weird design. And yet, the message I get from my midwife is, the more babies I have the more “dangerous” it becomes for me. Shouldn’t my body get better at it...?! • Oh, and let’s not forget the fact I’m “geriatric” 🥴 • 13 weeks to go - and in that time we need to think of a girl’s name and I have to keep my poor, geriatric body from falling apart. But the truth is, I’d do it another 6 times if I could 💛 • • • • #babynumber6 #27weekspregnant #mumtoboys #mumof5 #familyof7 #largefamily #largefamilylife #boymum #boymumlife #ukmum #ukmumblog #stayathomemum #5monthspregnant #realmotherhood #realparenting #geriatricpregnancy #pregnantmum #discoverunder2k #getseen #homeeducationuk #homeeducator #momtoboys #largefamilymom #pregnantbump #pregnantphoto
Happy Sunday 😃🤗 Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend 😘We’ve just polished off a gorgeous lamb roast cooked by Tony (he makes the BEST roast dinners ) and im already showered and in my pjs 🙈
Hardest and Favourite Stage I’ve found that every stage has it good bits and it’s bad bits... Newborns are hard, the lack of sleep and feeling like a novice is brutal. Questioning everything, worrying about little things that feel like big things. The constant feeding, changing, cleaning on repeat is monotonous but the new double baby cuddles cannot be matched. The newborn baby bubble is the best! If you could bottle that feeling you’d be a millionaire. One year olds are hard, they walk and run in the wrong direction and cry when they’re told off. They create so much mess and nap less but watching their personalities bloom and hearing them talk is magic. Two year olds are hard, the tantrums x2 can test even the most patient person. You often think you’re a referee breaking up the fights but they’re learning so much and when they hug each other you forget the squabbles in an instant. Three year olds are hard, they’re full of constant questions, don’t nap but are then overtired and think they always know best. They’re nicknamed ‘threenagers’ for a reason but their newfound confidence makes you so proud. They ooze with enthusiasm and adventure all whilst becoming your best little friends. And then they start school and it’s hard too. They learn at an amazing rate and leave the protection of you and all you’ve taught them. You miss them and in some ways you feel like you lose a bit of them as they’re changing all the time. They grow so fast you can’t remember them as babies or toddlers and the kisses and cuddles dwindle a little and every now and again the attitude creeps in. They don’t want to go to bed and prefer to play on their iPads and watch TV. They become young adults with well rounded opinions and ask more questions that you have to know the answers to (they check ). They become your friend and helper. The pride you feel never stops and and you get to watch their magical twin bond grow. None of these stages last forever but the hard bits can make an hour feel like an eternity. They all pass and just as you’ve got over the hard part of one stage, something else happens! #multiplemumsupport #multiplemumsupport2020
Twin Mum Guilt Motherhood is hard at the best of times but trying to split your time equally between two babies who need you at the same time is awful. The crying, which becomes deafening after a while, makes it so hard to think straight. Who do you comfort first? The guilt has made my heart beat so fast I thought it would come out of my chest and on many occasions it’s reduced me to tears, which hasn’t helped anyone. I’ve found ways around it, by using twin baby carriers, rocking car seats and baby bouncers with my feet which helped. Yet, I worried that it wasn’t enough or they’d grow up to be less affectionate as I couldn’t always give them a cuddle when they needed one. I still get really bad twinges of guilt with Seve and Aurelio. When they come home from school and both want to read to you at the same time, or show you something, you have to disappoint one of them. It’s impossible to give them both the attention at the same time. Although, it’s much easier to reason with them than two crying babies. When Nico and Rafael were really young and they were both needed me I talked to Seve and Aurelio about it and they told me that I could only do my best. They reassured me that they didn’t remember who was comforted first and now they are both very affectionate, cuddly and loving. It’s impossible not to feel guilty, but in the long run it will all be fine, trying your best is all you can do. #multiplemumsupport2020 #multiplemumsupport twinmama #mumguilt #twinmumguilt #motheroffive #fiveboys #motherofboys #motheroffiveboys #boymum #lifewithboys #pregnantwithtwins #twinpregnancy #twins #twinstwice #twosetsoftwins #twinboys #identicaltwins #identicalboys #twinstagram #twinnies #ukmum #ukmumblog #twinbond #ukmummy #ukmummyblog #brotherlylove #multiplemumsupport #twinsofinsta
Are anyone else’s eyes burning from the earlier start because of the clocks going back ? ... Mine aren’t because it was Alex’s turn to get up 🤣🤣🤣
There’s a lot of people on this sofa, there’s a lot of people in this house. And soon, they’ll be one more 💛 • My husband and I made the decision to have this many children. And we were lucky enough to be able to do so. Yes, our house is full (and our building work isn’t going to rectify that ), yes our house is loud and yes, it is damn hard physically & mentally raising a large family. • But, shit, wouldn’t have it any other way. Ok, maybe a cleaner... 💛 • • • • #largefamily #largefamilylife #mumtoboys #mumof5 #familyof7 #ukmum #mumlife #dadofboys #5kids #5boys #realmotherhood #babynumber6 #pregnantmum #boymum #discoverunder2k #getseen #instamum #ukmumblog #mumlifeuk #stayathomemum #realparenthood #ig_motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #momtoboys #momof5 #mumoffive #homeeducator #homeeducationuk #thisismyfamily
