If you have little birdies looking for something to do in Orange then look no further than the Totem skate school!
Happy skating Nesters x
This week has been a beautiful one in our little nest. We have received many new ‘likers’ on Facebook and we send out a massive high-five to all of you for sharing the love!
In our personal nest we are eagerly counting down the days until our new little birdy comes to say hello. I swear the last month of pregnancy has about 474,096 days..
Here are some of the fabulous discussions we have entered this week:
And today’s tantrum is proudly bought to you by:
In other news, next weekend is a LOOOONG weekend (thank goodness!) and while you are sha-lumping around in a sugar coma from all the chocolate you will inevitably devour we have found some Black and White Bathroom inspo for you! Make sure you wrangle your own hubby-bird and head to Bunnings and get some shit sorted! ASAP.
We found a really interesting article that proved to be quite popular on the blog this week. The 6 Signs You’re Done Having Babies really hit home with some of our beautiful Nesters. Some said they had that ‘gut’ feeling that they were done and some said they were still waiting on that feeling to hit. We love hearing from you and appreciate when you take the time to share your feelings and experiences with the little nest community.
We discovered some brilliant Non-Chocolate Easter Gift Ideas this week for you, everyone gives chocolate but how about thinking outside the chocolate box this year? There is something in there for everyone! Something to keep, something to remember, something to keep the blood-sugars level!
If you are looking for a tear-jerker read while sipping your warm cuppa then our story on The Most Powerful Thing You Can Say To Another Mother really tugged at the heartstrings. It shows that underneath it all we are bound by this invisible ribbon that ties all mama-birds together.
Another great style-go-to we learnt about this week was Chi Khi. To say we LOVE this new brand is the world’s biggest understatement! Kick-started by the beautifully talented Natalie Bassingthwaighte they offer funky, unisex designs for the most precious cargo of all, our little birdies. Add this site to your favourites like yesterday!
Whilst perusing our calendar (because you know, we are cool like that!) we realised that school holidays are only a sniff and fart away! If you are looking for something fun to keep your little birdie entertained these holidays then check out the awesome timetable from Bathurst PCYC. Offering everything from Circus Skills to Rock Climbing they surely have something to keep your mini-me occupied!
Another article that really resonated with you this week was our story about sisters. Sometimes Sisters are like Blisters, Irritating and Annoying, But The There Are Other Times. Whilst bloody frustrating sometimes they are your ‘people’ and will always be there for you. Share this with your people.
This week led to our life-changing discovery of Spylight. Now, let me break this down to you, you can actually purchase the look of your favourite TV star and have it sent directly to your home whilst in your trackie daks on a Mondee Night! How bloody sensational is that. Basically as soon as the episode airs the site uploads the look for you to buy!
Early in the week we found an article that while it discusses a less-than-fun topic it is really something you should consider. The reason why you should read 7 Signs You’re In An Unhappy Marriage is because it may just save your own relationship.
If you are looking to get out and about this weekend why not check some of these out?
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.
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.
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
