Chocolate Chip Cookies

For some reason I have an amazing Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I don’t know what it is, but most people will request the cookies (if I am coming over) or they sell like hotcakes if we have a fundraiser. While I’m not much of a sweet tooth, I can definitely eat one or two of…

Feeding Essentials

Being a first time Mum means that I am literally at the mercy of friends, family and the media to educate me on how to raise my baby. If you’re not careful you can end up spending hundreds of dollars on products that you are just not going to use. Thankfully most of the advice…

Free Weekly Printable

If you menu plan like I do (or are looking to start) you’ll more than likely need a planner to stick on your fridge or keep in your handbag! I have a magnetic one that I sometimes use, other times I print out the list and keep it in my bag incase I need to…

This too shall pass..

To all those mums out there who haven’t slept a solid 7 hours since their baby was born.. To all those mums out there comparing their child’s development accomplishments with other babies and questioning whether they are doing something wrong..

The Mum Uniform

Since having Ava I have to plan when I shower/wash my hair/what time of morning I get changed- mostly everything has a routine! Ava’s at the stage where she lunges for things so simply putting her on the bed now is no longer an option (unless we put her all the way in the middle…

Anyways, with me heading back to work in a few short…

The first tastes of real food!

2 days after Ava turned 4 months we tried rice cereal! Friends.. it went so well that she started refusing the bottle.. yep.. How do we know that it wasn’t just a fluke.. well, she would drink half a bottle and refuse the rest. I would then go and get the bowl with the rice…

Mummy & Me

One of the sweetest things I have been able to do is dress to match Ava! I don’t know why I find it so adorable, but I do! There are a few companies that I’ve found that make clothes for a mum and her baby to match!! I’m waiting till Ava can walk before I…

Easy Kale Chips

My Nan normally gives us a large bunch of kale every week. She’s very informed as to the health benefits of Kale! We’re not a huge fan of the vegetable in salads or smoothies (it’s quite bitter) so I normally end up making Kale chips! For some reason the olive oil and salt offsets the bitterness!…
