Today is one of those rainy, dreary days that most families dread. Secretly, I’ve been longing for today for a while. We need a day in our pajamas with nowhere to go and nothing in particular to do. A day to snuggle up and watch movies. Fold laundry. Make pillow forts. Dance party. All the things.
What’s your favorite rainy day activity? Soak up today. There’s always a bright side to #rainydays
As he's feeling much better today we thought we'd get the paints out for him! Excited was an understatement!
Do you ever feel like it’s all too much? Maybe you are the one making it too much. Something I’ve learned, it is ok to say no. We need to remember to do what works best for our family. Hitting the reset button for our personal life is great, but we also need to think about the pace of our family life. Finding that peace. Not being overwhelmed.
Life and motherhood is a constant balancing act. Trying to grow and raise children, grow your career, and still spend time on personal development, keeping sane and being healthy...yeah it’s not easy.
So many of us don’t set the time aside to take care of ourselves...but then complain that we don’t feel well, we’re tired and sluggish, gained weight, feel weak, can’t keep up with the kids, or got injured doing something simple.
What if you were finally STRONGER than your EXCUSES?
To quote my husband, “the best time to start investing in yourself is today, and the second best time was yesterday.” Are you ready to make that change? I’m here to lend a hand and help you along the way.
For the last two weeks, it has been quite a challenge getting Rosie to nap or sleep at night time. •
After a bit of researching, I found that toddlers go through two sleep regressions. One at 18 months and one at 24 months... Rosie is 20 Months Old.
She is between those two but the 24 month sleep regression mentions about changes that could affect her usual routine. Ie, new sibling, potty training or new bed. Since the other two are still the same, it leads me to believe that her new bed is the culprit. •
I sleep trained Rosie since she was 4/5 Months Old, I started with naps and worked our way to bed time. Since, she has been a good sleeper (except when she is poorly), even when she wakes up at night she self soothes and goes back to sleep. •
So the last couple of weeks have really thrown me. The usual put her to bed, dummy, bunny, Ewan, white noise and leave the room routine has not been working. She either tries to get out bed and go play with her toys or spends the time chatting and moving around her bed. She is usually tired but she fights going to sleep. I have tried everything; staying in her room, leaving the room and just going back to lay her down ( a million times!), laid down in bed with her, stood nearby and kept repeating “Rosie, lay down. Close your eyes and go to sleep.” Tried leaning close to her and holding her hand. I have even considered removing her one nap but she gets very tired and grumpy. Some days she won’t go to sleep until after 9pm!
Since it seems to be only a sleep regression, they recommend keeping routine the same and riding out the regression. So for the next few weeks I will be spending my evenings sitting close to Rosie counting sheep in the dark waiting for her to go to sleep.
Have you been through the same? What did you do? How long did it last? #SendHelpPlease #ToddlerSleepRegressionIsReal
My little lady 🎀 Thought I’ve been doing well teaching her etiquette and table manners... she makes a big deal if you burp and don’t say excuse me ☺️ But now she sits like this 🤣 Thanks for the capture @luxelimama #allclass #13monthsold
In the last 12ish months, the Lam family grew by another three children! Time to start our own playgroup! 👶🏻👶🏻👶🏻👶🏻 #cousinslove

Being that Mum whose kid screams blue murder going into nursery is so hard, it's hard for Arthur. That threshold between cloakroom and nursery room is at times hot lava. There's no rhyme or reason to it, no pattern. Some days it's terrible, some days he's smiling and waving me goodbye.
This week has been good for us, its so refreshing and sets us both up well for the day ahead.
And what's the difference? Not a clue. I've thought about it so much my brain hurts.
So I have learned to take it as it is, take Arthur as he is. Just roll with it and try not to stress about it too much.
So very proud of my boy.

I don’t think anything can prepare you for the mood swings of a toddler...I guess you could say the ‘terrible twos’ are here and I honestly have no idea what I’m doing but shhh, don’t tell him that! 😳🤔🤫

The sneak peek of this room over @thebearcubclub
makes me so excited to see the full reveal! 😍 Our Lilu wicker cage fits the theme beautifully✨
Curiously exploring our starter pack... ——————————
Why is the Starter Pack important? The puppet, unbreakable mirror and rattle are great tools to use alongside other toys or for some fun, open-ended play! #LearningTimeHK #TurnIdleTimeIntoLearningTime

I’m not going to lie, that’s one of the weird thing my husband often says that makes no sense to me 🤷♀️. But it seems fitting for me to announce that I am now stocking these cute little tote bags 💼
I’m calling them Mini Shoppers, because I started making them for my mini shopper Jesse. He insists on having his own bag when we do the shopping, but the regular size ones are just too big for him 😫
These tote bags are 38(ish)cm wide and 30(ish)cm long. I have designed them to be small enough for your tot to carry, but big enough that you can actually use it as a bag.
Use it as a shopping bag 🍓🥑🥒🥖, a library bag 📚, a lighter alternative to your regular nappy bag 💼, or a colourful way to carry your own stuff instead of a handbag.
They are made from thick tough fabric, and I have triple stitched them the whole way round (including the handles!) to make sure they are super duper strong 💪. Check em out in the shop now! (Tap the pic to get the shopping link). #toteallyawesome #pikkinikkistore
Oh you guys the struggle was so real tonight. It would have been so nice to just come home, and snuggle my kid and man, have dinner and relax.⠀
But let’s be real! We all know that ain’t the Mom life! This morning I missed my alarm, woke up late, got to work late, stayed at work late... ☺️ But I still took a shot of my pre, put on a workout outfit that gave me ALL THE FEELS, and pushed play! ⠀
Here’s the thing. We are all busy, we all have a million other things that deserve our attention. Truth is, if we don’t show up for ourselves and allow ourselves time for us to work on us - then we don’t have any business showing up for others, because we’ll have nothing to give. At some point, we will be empty.⠀
So in a perfect world, I would have done my normally scheduled 35 minute workout. But with life, and my little mess-up it was 20 minutes or nothing. So 20 minutes it is - and you better believe I pushed those 20 minutes and got the most out of my workout.⠀
I’m opening a free group to everyone that needs accountability in their fitness journey, just like I do. Honestly, if people didn’t expect me to show up on here, I would have given into one of my excuses. ⠀
If you want in, you need to slide into my messages with your email address and I’ll get you plugged in! 🤞🏼🏋🏻♀️💞⠀

Babies can catch cold 5-6 times a year since they have not yet developed resistance to most of the viruses that cause these kind of illness. 😷🤒 Moreover, as during the first 6 months of life they can exclusively breathe through their noses, a stuffy baby nose means a great chance of long, sleepless nights for the entire family. 🤧
By using a nasal aspirator, you can provide for the conditions of a peaceful rest and make those sick days more bearable. 👃🛌🌜 Are you ready? #getready #coldseason #comingsoon #almosthere

Good morning! Picie from several mornings ago. Drawing yelllow elephants and pink bananas! lol
TOGETHER | This isn’t the most instagramable shot but I had to share it because my beautiful, blonde boy held my hand. We sat together and watched the birds at our local garden centre in the sunshine and I felt so content. Moments like that deserve to be captured. F’s main passions in life are animals (any, he’s not fussy!) and electronics! What does your little one love?
Good morning beautiful world! Wishing you a great day ✨
