An Epic Weekend

This weekend has been beyond insane. So much so that all five girls were in bed tonight by 6.15pm… With Mercedes no better on Friday, we touched base with the paediatrician who suggested a change of antibiotics. So we sorted a new script, and made a plan to take her in for a review on Monday [...]

Sick again.

When you’re living with primary immune deficiency, you learn very quickly never to plan anything too far ahead. Because one minute you’re sitting in the sun watching your kid run in the school athletics carnival, and the next minute it’s 11pm and she’s standing over your bed saying ‘I don’t feel well’. So instead of [...]

Capturing a Diva

Last week a photographer friend of mine was looking for subjects to shoot for an assignment she’s working on so Rosie and I offered to go and hang out with her for while. I took my camera along too, and while I was busy trying to stay out of my friend’s way, I managed to snap [...]

Unbeaten.

These two girls, they’re winners. Today they played their last netball game of the season, chalking up an impressive 32-0 win to round off the season unbeaten. Now, I know they’re only seven. I know it’s just a game. I know it’s not about winning or losing, it’s about the spirit in which the game is [...]

{GUEST POST} Routine for the Win: Breastfeeding Twins

twins

When I was pregnant with the gremlins, everyone kept telling me I should join the local Multiple Birth Club as it would be a good way to connect with other twin parents, but in the chaos of their first few months,  I didn’t get around to actually joining until they were toddlers. The first time [...]

Galacta-whats?!

**This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Boobie Bikkies** ‘What are those biscuits in the cupboard?’ hubby asks. ‘No, not those ones. The ones in the OTHER cupboard. They’re really good.’ ‘Those ones?’ I reply.  ‘They’re Boobie Bikkies.’ ‘What are Boobie Bikkies?’  he asks. ‘I really like the coconut ones.’ ‘They’re lactation cookies darling,’ [...]
