Just a few things...

Today I'm linking up with Shae at Yay for home for her last Things I know, and I'll also flog with Glowless, with a couple of things that I have learned/ been reminded of this week.

1. Kids hurt themselves. Even though looking at a mark on your poor baby's face will make you feel like the worst mother in the world, life happens. Some days, children are just accident-prone, and they will climb a chair and fall and hurt themselves. Yes, you probably could have been watching her more closely, but everyone is entitled to go to the toilet. She is fine. Stop blaming yourself and get over it. She has!

My poor baby and her 'Owchie'.

2. When you are about to leave the house and the sky looks a little heavy, and you think to yourself 'I really should take those clothes off the line'.... the thought DOESN'T count. Take the clothes off the line. You won't regret it.

3. It is okay to not resist temptation every now and then and buy something pretty. Even though it's Christmas and money is a little tight.... sometimes, a little something can help brighten up the house and help inspire you to make things look good. It is nice to live in a house that looks nice. Occasionally it is all right to say 'Yes' to yourself instead of 'No'.

A new print for Georgie's room. I loves it.

4. Daytime naps when you are 38 weeks pregnant should be mandatory. And you should milk pregnancy for all it's worth the first time around. Because being pregnant while looking after a toddler? Just not as fun.

5. Good friends are worth their weight in gold, and a decent talk and visit with one will always help on a day when you are feeling a bit flat. Sometimes going out can seem like too much work, but there is nothing like flopping on someone else's couch for a bit. Enjoy the fact that you can be that comfortable with other people. It is good for the soul.


  1. mmmm naptime with a toddler and newborn is always ok. as long as they don't tag team eachother.

  2. I love that Print you bought - where is it from?

  3. Jodie- a little boutique store in our town, no idea who made it or distributed it sorry!

  4. lovely print and good on you for treating yourself, I bet it made the little one smile as well when she looks at. Sleep is always mandatory when you are pregnant and have a toddler. Fairy wishes and butterfly kisses to you lovely Robyn

  5. Such a pretty print! And don't we know it about the kids hurting themselves.. mine has a 'brown' tooth that he basically hit hard enough to kill in a fall off the lounge chair :S

    Not long now!

  6. Gorgeous print!

    And yes, kids hurt themselves... mine often have bruises and scrapes of unknown origin.

  7. Love the print!

    They definitely do hurt themselves. Both of mine fell over more than once and faceplanted enough to discolour their front teeth, right in front of me. Please don't feel responsible.

    Siestas should be mandatory anyway. I think European countries have the right idea.

  8. Love that print. It was worth it! We all agree!


Thanks for stopping by, I would so love to hear your thoughts!
