beafunmum @daisyrooandtwo asked me #widn - well, I just got home from watching my teen perform at school, left her there for other stuff she needs to do and took the younger 3 home, threw together an ugly (but yum) omelette, bathed younger kids, then we will get back in the car to pick up teen from school, then home again to feed the teen and put everyone to bed. THEN a cup of tea for me! 3d

beafunmum When husband and I haven't seen each other (or even been able to talk on the phone!) for a while, sometimes we ask the question: are we married?

My husband texted me this morning and it made me laugh. It just humour really, but it's also our way of acknowledging the time apart isn't really ideal for a marriage but we are doing okay. We are pulling together the best way we can and we WANT to do this together. We are a team. It's just humour...but there's actually a lot of comfort in it.

beafunmum Trying to make more of an effort with lunch. Today it's tri-colour quinoa, tuna, baby cos and tomato. I make a 3 day batch of quinoa and keep it in the fridge. Makes it easy to throw together a quick salad. 4d

beafunmum Miss 10 is such a whizz at the computer. She taught me how to superimpose a photograph on to a background. She did a tutorial for the blog too! And thank you to @holsterfashion shoes for the gorgeous aqua sandals she is wearing in this pic. 5d

beafunmum Went boxing in the park this morning. Last shopping trip I challenged myself to look for #AustralianMade products (the sunscreen I used this morning being one of them). The green Aussie Made Logo is an initiative I highly support, and to raise awareness of the products out there, I'm encouraging everyone to look for an Aussie Made product, take a pic and tag it #ouraussielogo ...PLUS by doing so, you will be in the running for an amazing hamper worth over $1,000. It's that easy. Check out more details over at australianmade.com.au #sp 6d

beafunmum When I was pregnant with my 4th child, many assumed we were trying for a boy (after 3 girls). The comments annoyed me a little because I wasn't trying for a boy. We were welcoming another child into our family. I didn't find out the gender of our child while I was pregnant (I like the surprise) but I was pretty sure it would be another girl...just because we did the girl thing so well! When my husband said, "Kelly, you have a son" I was shocked! I didn't believe him! I was ecstatic and terrified at the same time. Fast forward 7 years and I've formed a special bond with this boy (as with all my children). It's bittersweet in a way as his achievements, being my youngest child, mark the end of certain chapters for me. I wrote simple lullabies for each one of my children when they were young, and this is part of the verse in the song for my son: "You are my joy, you are my boy, you are a strong one my Harrison John" 7d
  •   jaynebartlett I've got 3 girls also and am constantly being asked "ohhhh are you going to go for the boy??" Like you can pick what you get. Ignorant people. So annoying. 6d
  •   beafunmum @em7emma love the top Em x 6d
  •   beafunmum @em7emma PS you gave me the pearls too! 6d
  •   nanietita OMG you make me cry... 6d
  •   batman3344 Sounds like my story. 3 gorgeous girls. Tried for a fourth child. Was convinced we would have a girl happy as that would mean having all the clothes etc. ... All four children we did not find out the sex. When number 4 was placed upon my stomach I was shocked when told we had a son ... and then he peed all over me! Hahaha 6d
  •   style_scouting_frocktober How gorgeous that you wrote all your children their own lullaby! So very special. 6d
  •   em7emma How is the shirt 6d
  •   beafunmum @em7emma love 6d

beafunmum I like these too. They are fold up shoes that come in a cute bag. Great to keep in your handbag: take when you go out for dinner in heels a as spare to save your feet. #giftorium #myer #christmas #giftideas 1w
