{The Weekly Nest} This week we wept, pulled sickies and celebrated the female body

This week saw the death of a beautiful little boy for the saddest of reasons. What makes it even more incredibly heartbreaking is that his death could have been avoided if people just got vaccinated.

Whooping cough is preventable, or at least containable. The story relates to little Riley John Hughes and you can read more about it here -> Someone killed this baby. It is such a horrible, heart-wrenching story of loss. Make sure you hug your little birdies a little tighter tonight.

In completely different news, we discovered some wonderful Gardening Hacks this week for our Life Hack Friday segment. Some of these ideas are just so ‘der-how-did-I-not-just-think-of-that’!

We kicked off the week with some health inspo for you. Our resident health expert laid down some advice on Staying Healthy This Easter. It is a great article that will help you stay on game when the dread chocolate overload monster comes knocking on your door!

In other news,  I am convinced my toddler-bird pulled her first real-life sickie this week.

I shit you not.

I got the call from Kindy to come and collect her about 2pm (note: good to see she managed to hold out for lunch – no shocks there) and I arrived to collect the little playa and took her home.

Obviously the girls at Kindy totes did the right thing to call me, they are brilliant! but once I got the little bambino home she turned it on. I went to the toilet when we walked in the door (hello, once you reach the 36 week preggo you may as well get your mail re-directed there) and came out to the kitchen and found the little minion delving into a large packet of chicken chips. I didn’t even know we had chicken chips! Must of be left over from camping or a party or something.

Then Miss Toddler-Bird demanded we call daddy to tell him we were home. As directed by the little dictator I dutifully dialled daddy’s work number and she proceeded to inform him ‘Hi daddy, me home, sissie still at kindy and me and mummy are eating chips. Na-na-na-ner-na. You at work’. So is that the type of thing I am meant to write in her baby book? Sat up, 5 months old, first step 11 months old, first sickie aged 2?

In case your belly is looking for a feed then you should look at Hunters & Gatherers Paleo kitchen in Orange. They offer rotating meal plans each week and delivery to your door! Yummo!

A really interesting article that grabbed our attention this week was When Dads Believe Their Baby Doesn’t Love Them, it is a fascinating read and something that you should keep because you don’t know when you might need it. dad and baby

Parenting is tough, especially at the start, so this little article might help out someone you love one day.

We learnt this week just how much the expectations on the female body have changed throughout history. This fantastic video shows the changes of societies’ expectations. You can see it here -> The Evolution of The Female Body Throughout History
