Aspen Soffe  🌿 Mum to Archer Percy & Atticus Victor 🌿 Wall enthusiast & white duvet lover 🌿 New Zealand 🌿 Snapchat - aspen_soffe

As much as I love being in the picture with these boys, I know I treasure the pictures of us together the most, often they're so hard to look at 😫 I um & ah for ages before deciding that it's a photo that I like enough to be posted, convince myself that no one else will ever notice the tiny detail I'm obsessing over πŸ™ˆ but I continually get in the picture, again & again, cringe when I look and post them anyway - because I'm there, day in, day out, doing the shitty nappies & discipline, getting wrestled & tickled & played with & ignored, and I bloody deserve to be in the pictures of their lives πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ #getinthebloodypicturemamas #selftimerisamumsbestfriend #onlywaytheresphotosofustogether #archandatti

Yesterday πŸ‘ŒπŸ™ŒπŸŽ‰πŸ˜ #ArcherPercy

Compared to yesterday evening, today has been heaven πŸ™Œ We were up & out at 9am, Atticus slept, for THREE hours, I cleaned my house for the first time in weeks. Archer went to play at his grandma's with my brother & I even got 5 minutes to breathe 😏 it was just what I needed to wrap my head around life and actually get everything done to feel like I'm coping again πŸŽ‰ #ArchandAtti #whatabloodygoodday #myhouseismessyagain #butwhocaresitwasdoneonce

Archer is obsessed with 'heroes' at the moment, & he's lucky enough to be raised surrounded by them. He is named after my great grandfather who fought in the WWII, his father is a solider & two of my best friends (his honorary "aunties" πŸ˜πŸ’•) are firefighters. He will always know he's from a line of heroes, and we have no doubt he'll be one too πŸ’•πŸ˜πŸ™Œ #lestweforget #anzacday #ArcherPercy

My tiny boy, having his first sleep in the cot πŸ˜πŸ˜­πŸ’” best day sleep he'd had in a week, lasted half an hour πŸ™ˆπŸ™Œ #Attisfirsts #waaaah #imprettysad #wonderifhelluseitmorethanArch #thisissosad #whendidhegetsobig #AtticusVictor

Throwing it back to when Atti slept πŸ˜©πŸ™ˆ currently on a sleep strike for whatever reason and I'm not feeling it πŸ˜©πŸ˜’πŸ˜­ #bringmybabyback #theonethatsleeps #nowheremindsmeofArcherbaby #thatnosleeplife #AtticusVictor

I've been feeling so uninspired for what to post on here, the photos come easily to me and its not hard to find a gorgeous back drop here. But the captions? How 'real' is too real? Where do you draw the line? What about when every day sounds the same? And not in a bad way, every day is a whirlwind of wonderful happy moments & some stressful intense ones, it's hard work almost daily but daily I go to bed beyond grateful and overflowing with happiness to have my 2 boys besides me, the greatest friends & family around me & us all living in this beautiful place. When everything is so good, the captions seem fake or cheesy, and when constantly posting the negative moments, it seems whingey (like my 3 year old πŸ™ˆ). How many rants is too many? How deep do you get into pop culture (hello '13 reasons why' everywhere πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ)? Initially, my instagram was a visual diary that I have looked back on time & time again, and still do. But it's grown in the last 3 years of my posting, especially in the last year, to a community of people who view & comment & (hopefully) support each other - as great as that is, sometimes it feels like "pressure" to get every post "right". And I can't even imagine how intense that pressure gets the more followers people have, I'm lucky to have a small & super sweet group of people who are with us on this journey (through our curated, self timered squares). But still, where to from here? πŸ’•πŸ™ˆ

How long has it been without a kid free selfie!? Today I had my first hair cut in over 2 years (can you even believe I used to work in a hair salon πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). I'm officially a mum now, I'm in the club, I have a lob. Thanks @french_k 😏😘

Thank you for all the lovely messages last night, I'm definitely on the mend πŸ™Œ I feel so lucky to have such lovely, supportive messages and comments nearly every day, all the friendships and support I've gained from this wonderful little app amazes me on the daily πŸ™ŒπŸ˜ #ramberamble #bitsooky #butthanksguys #likeeveryoneissonice
