Something Exciting



I recently answered a call out for writers from The Mulberry Journal (previously Mulberry Magazine), an online education collective of personal stories and essays, resources and ideas. 

My first piece, about habit training, was published a little while ago. You can read it here

The feedback I've received so far has been incredibly encouraging and it feels wonderful to write something that people, mothers especially, have found helpful. 

In the coming months I'll have some more pieces published, which of course, I will let you know about here.

A quiet moment between Leo and Phoebe.

I didn't get the lighting how I wanted in these shots but I still love them.

Leo- Some quiet play in the lounge room.  

Phoebe- Enjoying a snack like a big girl. Surely she's not ready to give up the high chair?

Foot Painting



 


I've been following The Homegrown Preschooler on Instagram for a while now and they regularly share photos of what other mums are doing with their little ones at home. When I saw this post I immediately knew it was something I'd have to do with Leo and Phoebe because:

messy play + easy clean up = happy x3

Leo was reluctant at first, I think the concept confused him, but when I gathered us into the bathroom and started spooning out little blobs of paint in the bath and told Leo to start painting, he couldn't get in fast enough!

Phoebe was not at all keen but was more than happy to hand me the paints and help with the clean up. An easy way to spend the afternoon for sure! Leo has already requested to do it again so I'll be returning to this one as a special treat.
