So stoked! We pick our man up from the airport tonight after a 17 day stint โค๏ธโค๏ธ not the longest but felt like it ๐Ÿ’” #fifodad #fifowife #fifolife #mumofgirls #mumlife #aussiemum #youngmum #sunshinecoast #surfergirl #grommie #groms #bodypositive #empower #postpartumbody #stretchmarks #loveyourself

We said goodbye to our man again yesterday, back to work he goes ๐Ÿ˜ญ Iโ€™m trying to keep us all busy so the days and weeks go faster! O keeps saying โ€œDaddyโ€™s gone, just mummy nowโ€ and how โ€œDaddys up in thereโ€ (she points to the sky, indicating an airplane) Gosh it breaks my heart, being such a close family, this is proving the hardest thing weโ€™ve ever done. And by close I mean Ben and I have never been apart like this. Ever...since we met. We lived together almost instantly, and then travelled in a little van down the south coast of Aus โœŒ๐ŸผGosh I love this man and all heโ€™s doing for us โค๏ธ๐ŸŒผ p.s I told O she can have a horse when we get into our house.. and she remembered.. every time someone mentions a house she starts making horse noises and says โ€œmummy + daddy get me thatโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Little girl you are so loved by us all ๐ŸŒผ your cousins canโ€™t wait to meet you! ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธHow awesome is it when your little sister is pregnant, Iโ€™m more excited than I was for myself ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŒˆ @shanayafaithful #proudaunty #17weekspregnant #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnantbelly #babybump #sunshinecoast #beachbaby #surfergirl #maternity #dueinjune #firsttimemum #mumofgirls #candidchilhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #family #aussiemum

Goodbye 2018 ๐Ÿ‘‹ Thanks for the roller coaster of a time, you sure have strengthened us ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ Hello 2019 โœŒ๐Ÿผ This is our year ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒˆโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿถ @bennyrobins

She thinks she can swim... well she thinks she can pretty much do everything her sister does...๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ and that includes giving each other texta tattoos on their faces, as per photos ๐Ÿ˜‚ Mind you, for a 1.5 year old she can hold her breath + float pretty well! We have the best swim school! @ginasbluewaterbabies

So the girls are already sharing clothes..๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ when I found out I was pregnant with another little mermaid I had visions of them sharing rooms and clothes and having each others back ๐Ÿค›๐Ÿผ Itโ€™s already started ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ I feel like theyโ€™re going to catchup to each other and be like twins..or double trouble ๐Ÿ˜‚ I get that at least once a day when I go out and about.. ๐Ÿ˜‚ until they look a bit closer and go โ€œoh no I can see the difference nowโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚ I secretly love it... twins run in my family and I always thought I would carry it on ๐Ÿ˜‚ I can already vision my 15 + 16 year olds laying in their bedroom having a gossip (i feel like theyโ€™re going to be sharers?) my sister and I shared and weโ€™re 3 years part. ๐Ÿ˜˜โœŒ๐Ÿผ#14monthsapart #sisters #siblings #aussiemum #mumofgirls #motherhood #mumlife #childhood #childhoodmemories #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #crochet

I was driving to swimming lessons just then and O says out of the blue โ€œDaddy homeโ€ and I told her how much Daddy loves her and heโ€™s working hard to buy us a forever home so we can have chickens and horses and art rooms and vegetable gardens, and she says again โ€œI want daddy homeโ€ and I tell her for what seems like the millionth time that daddy will be home cuddling us in bed tomorrow night โค๏ธ It makes me wonder if a โ€œhomeโ€ is really worth all of this, the separation and how Daddy spends more time at work then he does with his babes. It makes me wonder if we should just quit everything and become nomads on the road, it makes me wonder what is so significant and important about buying a home that leaves you in debt and stuck working for 30 years. Iโ€™m in 2 minds. I told Benny this and the old wise owl comes back with โ€œthe hardest part to a simple life is taking the first stepโ€... thatโ€™s all he said... and itโ€™s playing on my mind ๐ŸŒ™โ˜€๏ธ flashback to our first mermaids first birthday opening gifts at sunset by the sea ๐ŸŒŠ

I took the girls out to wear them out so I could have a relaxing afternoon while they slept... instead Iโ€™ve worn myself out... and the kids are still going... this usually happens to me. Why donโ€™t my kids sleep anymore ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™„ #14monthsapart

Impatiently waiting for Daddy to get home this week ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง

Remembering when O was growing inside of me and sucking the life out of me. Oh how I honestly thought I would never get through Hyperemesis Gravidarum, I really thought it would never end. I lost 10 kgs during my first pregnancy.. I was so sick I went from 67 to 57 kgs in the first trimester. I should of just lived at the hospital. My darling daughter, you still take all my energy to this day, my restless Gemini, you and your sister are the greatest gift this world could give โœจ #hyperemesisgravidarum

Cleansing our energy with the salty sea because weโ€™re missing our man with all of our heart ๐Ÿ’” btw, our go-to accessory atm is headbands... without it O walks around with her fringe over her eyes. I donโ€™t even know how she sees through her hair ๐Ÿ˜‚ but Iโ€™m constantly telling her to wipe her hair out of her eyes and being told by everyone to cut her a front fringe. ๐Ÿ™„ nooooooope not happening.
