MOST RECENT

My family has been coming to this beautiful property for as long as I've been alive. Initially just as day trout fishing trips before growing into what is now an annual camping weekend. Some years our numbers have swelled to 40+, this year with all the littleuns we kept it smaller - just 20.
.
The weather wasn't the greatest but that didn't stop the kids playing in the creek building dams, catching bait and then trout; riding in the back of the trailer or on the quad, building log bridges to cross the creek, playing with the mud kitchen, going up to the dairy to watch the cows be milked, feeling the calves suck on their fingers, tinkering with tools, making imprints in clay with leaves and other natural treasures, and exploring and discovering all manner of exciting things including some cow vertebra some distance apart that fitted together!
.
My niece caught a trout all on her own - first finding a spot she thought looked good, casting and hooking the fish then reeling it in for a quick photo before releasing it again. Jamieson documented the whole weekend with a non-working but very real camera I picked up for 30c, he LOVED it! The kids coloured in logs, leaves, bones and gumnuts for races down the creek, we had the annual longest kick for goal competition as well as the joke telling competition around the fire of a night time.
.
They learnt about tending and cooking on the fire and collapsed in an exhausted but satisfied heap at the end of each day. This year was extra special as three bubbas under 18 months came for the first time, and for two it was their first ever camping trips! Special times indeed

Volcano 🌋
This was a super quick set up this afternoon, S helped me make a volcano out of sand and a toilet paper roll, the. We added grass and pebbles to make a river. Plus a dinosaur for good measure 🤣 for the lava we used dish detergent mixed with baking soda in the volcano then he squirted coloured vinegar into it and watched it erupt! Thanks @daily_play_adventure for inspiring me to do this recently it was lots of fun! Also check out @our.mini.creations who obviously is my brain twin because she did the same activity today 🤣 but I like hers more! 😂🙌🏻 #tprollcreation

I love this little invitation to play from @playdough_and_puddles ! Thank you for sharing 🌱

With so many frogs around thanks to the recent prolonged rainy spell we’ve decided to learn more about the life cycle of a frog.

We made apple donuts.
1. Core an apple and cut into slices.
2.use yogurt as a topping. We used plain youghurt mixed with honey and spirulina to add colour and an extra nutritional element.
3.Sprinkle with coconut.
Yum!

Sunshine ☀️, water and sand between our toes!

Sensory play. Some days it feels so good to cover oneself in cool moist sand!

WELCOME automn. With forest school its gonna be awsome!!! #forestschool #natureplay #autumn #toddlermom #playingwithsand #outdoor #rainorshine #youngvines

Today, after a fun filled weekend, we lapped up the sunshine with my Mumma Bear!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m losing my voice, which if you know me you’ll know I love a good chat so, I’m not gonna lie, it’s pretty frustrating 😂. Of course mum being sick doesn’t mean anything in this household (#parentlife right) so I’ll soldier on! 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We ventured to the Fourth Creek Nature Trail with the girls bikes and of course we ended up carrying them but all in all it was a fun day. We listened to the frogs, crossed the creek over a rock path and played in the nature ‘playground’!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The highlight of my kids’ day is always food, I was organised (for once) with a little picnic, I made some quick dips and cut up some veggie sticks. I also made some chocolate bliss balls which went down a treat!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We have been investigating our giant sunflower head using magnifying glasses and tweezers and our pinching fingers to pull the seeds out 🌻 This is a great activity for strengthening fiddly fingers but also for counting, sorting and learning about lifecycles 🌱😍 .

Would you like to know where we get our photo inspiration from? 👉🏼 swipe.

I still remember that day. Moving those heavy pumpkins from our hay shed to our house paddock.

I was told I was too little. But I moved those pumpkins and my arms hurt like heck.

I’m still moving pumpkins today just a different kind.

Today we got our first hate comment and man did they go to town.

So let’s take a moment to let you know what we stand for and what inspires us.

Coddi & Womple is inspired by Scandinavian kids clothing - those guys know how to get it right. We have made a home within this scandi colour loving family for a couple of years now - long before our launch... and welcomed all brands to join.

Coddi & Womple brings our own modern day twist on this style and thread our farm life through every part.

We will always have stories with our designs because I am a woman with something to say and we create from love and dreams not just out of thin air. Every hand drawn illustration is pondered endlessly down to the last thin or rough or curly line.

We will always be bright because that’s our belief. And we aren’t the first to do it - nor will we be the last.

Our patterns are probably out there a gazzillon times over as there is no such thing as a new kids pattern.

We need more colour out there and welcome all brands as they compliment our way - not compete. Because it’s humanly impossible for us to cloth all the kids on this earth.

So let’s bring it back to that love for making the world a happier place for our kids.

Coddi & Womple is our way.
It’s our life.

Keep the love coming guys ✌🏼 #lettherebelove #coddiandwomple

Little man. BIG park!! We finally made it out to the Spicer Reserve today. Such a cool place to visit! I’d heard it’s a great place to #natureplay and I can see why! Massive trees, so peaceful and a fantastic stream for splashing in that’s great for toddlers (and parents too!) 💦 #teddycomestoo #teddysbigadventure #naturebaby #labourday2018

How lovely is this🌸#Repost @play.4.the.senses ・・・
🌸🥀💐Flowers and Play Dough - a simple invitation to play this morning. I had some gorgeous flowers gifted to me from my beautiful mother and they were beginning to drop their petals - voila! Idea 💡 Give them to Miss 3.7 to play with! ❤️🌸

My play dough is still going strong in the fridge. Might be nearly time to make some new colours though as it’s probably on its way out, plus I don’t have much left!

7 months on and Dusty has well and truly settled into our lives like he has always been here.

I had longed for another baby for 10 years before he came along and now that this little dude is here, I feel like my true self.

I’m still getting to know this new and improved version of myself, but from what I know so far, I’m confident, happy and content. I am also growing and developing more of an understanding each day of what matters to me most.

I’m loving this experience and I can’t wait for what is to come my way - you can attract anything into your life, you just need to be ready and willing! ✨😍

Flowers 🌸, Leaves 🍁 and sun ☀️.

He’s soft natured. He loves gardening (like his father). He loves pink trolls (like Wafaa). He loves books (like Fatima). He loves drinking camomile tea in the garden (like his mother). He loves carrying small clutch bags (like his haboba). The list is long. He is a combination of all of us.
.
I catch myself sometimes worrying about his calm and soft and sensitive nature. Although I prayed for a boy like my father, brother and husband.
.
What if I need to consciously expose him to trucks, dinosaurs, and superheroes? What if I’m softening him up too much. What if...
.
For now... run barefooted and smell the flowers and sing with the birds. Dance in the garden and crush dead leaves. For now cuddle your dolls and pray that tomorrow who you are is exactly what the world needed. What the world absolutely needs in men.
