inthelightofthesun Meanwhile I'm pretty grateful for friends like @dearolive who listen and nod and hug and even watch my kids so I could take a quick solo dip in the gorgeous blue waters of Bondi. Thank you lovely! I know the saying is it takes a village to raise a child but I think it also takes a village to support a mother x 19h
  •   missnieve Absolutely. It's alllllllll about supporting the mother. 18h
  •   dearolive I always feel so much lighter after hanging out with another Mum. You're tops xxxx 18h
  •   missingfillmore ️👭 18h
  •   twothirdssky I'll bet that was a good swim. I always feel lighter after hanging out with you too. Xxx 17h

inthelightofthesun This guy. With grumpy face on because I said we can't take shells and starfish home. Because I'm the worlds meanest mum. Because I make him smoothies on demand, take him to playgroups and play dates with friends and to the beach every day. Life sure is tough for some. 19h
  •   go_jojo I don't know how he puts up with you @inthelightofthesun how nice you get to the beach everyday! 19h
  •   amwittex you're an awesome mama! @inthelightofthesun 19h
  •   petalplum How can to be the worst mama in the world when I am (and my 10yr + 8yr old can possibly say it with a whole lot more attitude than your little one!!). xxx 18h
  •   inthelightofthesun @petalplum bahaha I bet they can! well you've had a few more years practice at being the meanest mum, if I'm anything like you in 6 years time I'll pay myself on the back xo 18h
  •   missnieve I felt like serving G a plate of brussels sprouts for dinner. Testing times! 18h
  •   ladymmoss Yep you totes suck dude. Can you be my mum and take me to the beach everyday? 18h
  •   twothirdssky No, I am the meanest. I would have added the "get over it" line, which can go either way ... 17h
  •   greenmountainmomma I'll raise my hand too! I'm mean over here! 15h

inthelightofthesun It was my turn to do morning tea at music playgroup. On the left are some lemon and coconut bliss balls and on the right is chocolate brownie. Made with black beans. Gluten and dairy free too (depending on your choc chips ️) healthy but still actually super yum, hooray!! 1d

inthelightofthesun I just stood back and said 'mmm yes, that's lovely darling!' But we forgot to bring it home 4d
  •   wovenspirit Glitter mania!!! 4d
  •   inthelightofthesun @pippityroo @wovenspirit I had a brief daydream as I stood there sweltering, looking around a crowded hall full of toddlers mid meltdown and tired parents trying to stay calm and thought about grabbing a fist full of glitter, throwing it in the air and yelling 'glitter fight!!' 4d
  •   pippityroo Now that, would've been awesome!! There are far too many glitter haters out there I love the stuff, it's so sparkly! But I really don't like craft 4d
  •   inthelightofthesun @pippityroo my opinion changes frequently. I love being difficult and completely changing my opinion 4d
  •   pippityroo Lol! 4d
  •   shell_mcclure Glitter everywhere!! 4d
  •   wovenspirit I would totally have been in on that!!! Our house mostly looks like a kindergarten - craft stations everywhere 4d

inthelightofthesun It's taken me almost 12 hours to post this photo. I needed that amount of time to recover from the huge solo parenting effort I put in this morning for the boys - super crazy hot morning at an art party in Bondi. Bondi + sun + weekend = stay away This, in case you're not in the know, is Lah Lah, an Australian children's singer that my boys are quite enamoured with . Torsten is super hot and pooped but the fact he joined in on the photo speaks to volumes to me and Wolfie practically asked her to marry him. My efforts were totally worth it. 4d
  •   petalplum I don't know her. My kids loved Justine Clarke...guess I'll discover all the new singers with my little one 4d
  •   inthelightofthesun @petalplum they're pretty new I think. My boys adore Justine too. We saw her perform at the opera house around Christmas and she was superb! I love her as an actress too. 4d
  •   petalplum We saw Justine years ago in Brisbane when my kids were little - the Opera House would have been something special. Yep - a fav access of mine too 4d
  •   suzedeville Oh god Sara, GARGANTUAN effort, mama! The heat was absolutely crazy today. Let's look forward to a very manageable 24 degrees tomorrow - my perfect temperature and much more befitting to an Autumn day. 4d
  •   inthelightofthesun @suzedeville oh man! Ten minute drive to get there. Half an hour to find a park! Then racing them in the heat to get there. Then back once it finished. Then when torsten refused a nap I almost had a meltdown yep bring on proper autumn days please sydney, my absolute favourite!! 4d
  •   missnieve Bravo mum. Hope you've got your feet up x 4d
  •   shell_mcclure That's amazing, go you! Jude loves Lah Lah's big live band....he also loves The Wiggles, they are coming here in a few months but I'm not sure how he'll react, I think he might be a bit scared of Captain Feathersword! 4d
  •   metaemotions She's beautiful 3d

inthelightofthesun Have you read "Are We There Yet?" By Alison Lester? Wolfie and I are lying in his bed dreaming about holidays. I'd love to take the boys on a huge trip all around this amazing country. My dad is a pilot, so family holidays were often spent camping under the stars as far away from the airports and 5 star hotels he gets paid to stay in. I feel so lucky to have seen as much of this beautiful country as I have, thanks to my awesome parents massive efforts. I'm thinking that when the boys are a bit older, but before they start highschool, we should do a travelling year. Or half year! Ah dreams 4d
  •   littleearthstories One of our favourites! Ellery got this when he was born so we've been reading it for almost four years. We camped a lot too when I was growing up and every time I read this I dream about showing our kids this amazing country. xx 4d
  •   inthelightofthesun @nams32 yes yes yes let's all get Winnebagos or camper trailers or caravans and be gypsies for a year of fish n chips and road trip singalongs 4d
  •   inthelightofthesun @eastridg yep. Deservedly so! Would love to read the farm, see if your library has it? X 4d
  •   inthelightofthesun @littleearthstories my one beef with this book is it's pretty long when I'm tired and trying to hurry along the bed time that has already been dragged out in so many ways you're on my map to come visit, can't believe your amazing spot in this country has not been visited by me before. We did Fraser several times and stradbroke but never Morton. I complained to my dad 4d
  •   nams32 Sounds like Bliss!! Deal. 4d
  •   missingfillmore Looks great. I'll look it up. Have fun planning 4d
  •   eastridg Sara all her books a deep and meaningful and takes time to read...worth it though. Now one more play of the video and bed xxx 4d
  •   katemaston I love her illustrations. I'll have to look out for this one because haven't seen it before. We have the farm if you'd like to borrow it. My kids aren't that into it for some reason. Perhaps because it is quite long. 3d

inthelightofthesun Thank goodness for night time, swiftly approaching. If this was a video, you'd just hear screaming and whining. Meanwhile my lover and I are enjoying this freshly made lemony pesto with walnuts and spinach. Plus fresh hommus. And trying some black bean brownies for dessert! We caved and bought a new processor, not fancy but what our budget could allow. The two broken ones cluttering up our shelves can shove off now! Long live hommus!!! Hip hop hooray bed time!! 5d
  •   dearolive Yay, enjoy! 5d
  •   littleearthstories Yum! 5d
  •   mummad Hooray for bedtime, new appliances, yummy food and time with your lover!! Go you good thing. 5d
  •   studiolittlerock Oh I wish I knew! I have a food processor to give away! 5d
  •   myrtles Hearing ya. 5d
  •   the_minor_key I'm sitting in Ida May's room waiting for her to settle. Her Dad decided when she was going to bed tonight. I would've given her more time but hey it's not like I'm in here missing out on eating dinner or anything. 5d
  •   alfalky Yummo! 5d
  •   eastridg I will come for a dinner lovingly prepared by you anytime xxx 5d
