Didn't want to shop this morning, I've been putting it off since friday. Didn't bother with online either, just shopped the old fashioned way today lol • I wanted to only spend $150, but, some 1/2 price goodies and some less than necessary items put me over. I'll stash the chips and biscuits away for school holiday treats. • Meals this week include, home made burgers, Chinese chicken dumpling soup and spring rolls, Beef goulash, mince chow mein, tomato and onion sausages, butter chicken, vege and egg noodle stir fry, bacon/egg muffins and roast chicken and vege. • I've a few other meals in the freezer if life gets busy, or I don't get a chance to shop again for another 10 days or so.
M U M M Y’ S M I N I // when baby Sutton was born I thought for sure she would look exactly like Curtis . . . Just like Taj bit much to my surprise she’s a mini me and I LOVE IT !! *side note - still definitely a daddy’s girl*
Fun: Mom this is a box. I made this myself. Me: Whoah! That's amazing! You know how to make a box. Fun: I'm going to float this in the water just like a boat. Me: Don't! It will get wet and tear. Fun: Then I'll make a new one. (Then she proceeds to the toilet) Me: 🙀🤣🙃 I really cannot win in a reasoning contest with Fun. She never runs out of it. Sometimes I get exasperated arguing with her. But I try to pause and reflect when that happens. I know that time will come that she'll grow wings and fly out of the nest. And I'll terribly miss this kind of banter with her. So now I'll just savor each #moment and capturing each moment while I still can. I know, I'll be the wealthiest when they're all grown ups and living their own lives. . . . #momsofinstagram#mom#moms#momentstotreasure#wit#workathomemoms#momlife#mommy#momma#mother
Worry is etched in a mother’s heart.... I’m not sure if it ever goes away or you ever get enough experience that everything just “clicks” but I do know that no matter how hard I try to exterminate that worry ... the worry remains to be contended with until the season has passed . Then like a good spring, new seeds are sowed and you ,once again, find yourself battling with weeds (new and old) that try to encroach it’s path to grow . That’s what worry is— a weed. That’s what makes motherhood and other great paths to spiritual growth so challenging, you have to keep tending to it . And sometimes outright ignore it(roll up your sleeves) and focus on feeding the good path and not allow yourself to surrender. Trust me, It’s not easy for me, I have prayed for the “click” to happen so many times... but I am learning (albeit begrudgingly ) to just accept the season and enjoy motherhood in all it’s forms. And as I sit and think about all this, I can’t help but feel thankful for this sweet boy who has taught me more than I could ever teach him (even though ...lord help me... please get him to clean his room😂)#kaidenkep #sundaymusings#enneagram7w8#enneagram7problems#momlife#nothingisordinary#motherhoodrising#motherhoodunplugged#motherhoodthroughinstagram
. 🌺🌺🌺 . When the Lord of all things - big and small leaves Bombay to go back, all of the city comes down on the streets to bid goodbye. . The family has for years been a part of this amazing culture of this city ! And now Annika eagerly looks forward to this day each year for she gets to see all the colorful Gampi Bappas and gets to hog on her favourite modaks. 😋 . Last nite as she said buh-bye to all the ones we passed on the streets, I realised it's a tradition that had been unassumingly passed on to her little heart and embraced with as much luv and happiness as I have felt thru this festival. So dear Ganpati Bappa, pudhchya Varshi Lavkar ya ! For A is waiting ! 🌺🌺🌺 . #letthembelittle #kidsofinstagram #ganpatibappamorya #mommyblogger #childhoodunplugged #littlestoriesofmylife #candidchildhood #worldoflittles #motherhood #mumbai#motherhoodunplugged #motherland #childhoodunplugged #bombaydiaries#streetstories#babiesofinstagram#capturedmoments #parenting #parentlife #grandparents #grandparentgoals#babiesofinstagram#toddlersofinstagram #lovelookslikethis #familia #cherisheverymoment #documentingmotherhood #simplylittle #thelittleones#humansofjoy
Happy Monday everyone 😊For a mummy that’s always the one taking the photos it was so lovely to receive this photo from a friend after a lovely overdue catch up at one of our favourite places @nttredegarhouse . With life so busy and ever changing people come and go, but when you connect again and it’s like no time is passed it’s a great, great thing. Me and Jakey had the best time that day, and to come home to this photo capturing a moment of me and my boy looking out over one of our favourite spots gives me that warm fuzzy feeling every time I look at it 😍 photo credit @sunshinemeg83
