islandfairy I made her day when I asked her if she wanted to be carried in the sling. Believe it or not, she's easier to wear than her baby sister! #babywearing #childwearing 4d

islandfairy We asked Siri what the temperature was right now. 4d
  •   theprettywalrus I have reached that ridiculous point where I see 37 and think "ah that's quite nice!" - but you without AC, omg. Portable AC unit? 4d
  •   islandfairy @theprettywalrus yup. We're in our living room and it feels around 42C I'd say. 4d
  •   nux115 We're out running errands at the moment..the heat in the air is weighing down on us, not one of our best ideas 😑 4d
  •   islandfairy @nux115 wah! Well, air conditioned cars and shops might be better than this. 4d
  •   nux115 We don't have ac at home so yes, it's probably better 4d
  •   annakelso Too hot. 4d
  •   the.holly.tree Sizzle! 3d

islandfairy #gozo ...I love you as much as I hate you. 4d
  •   annakelso Have you always lived on Malta? Is it the heat that's the problem? I know how heat can just bring everything to a near stop. It's so hard to even move. 4d
  •   islandfairy @annakelso always lived in Gozo, except for 10 years in Malta. Mostly it's the heat but it's also the laissez faire attitude, lack of opportunities, being limited in so many ways, roads full of potholes and politicians only thinking about their own glory (most of them). Shall I continue? 4d
  •   annakelso I'm going to have to read more about Gozo. I learn so much from my IG friends. Stay cool too my friend. 4d
  •   islandfairy @annakelso my complaints aside, I couldn't be prouder of our history. This is one remarkable country, there's no doubt about that. 4d

islandfairy Iced latte, pen and (squared) paper. It's all I need to be happy. That and a husband who kicks me out of the house so I can work. 4d

islandfairy Lesson learnt: an afternoon swimming followed by fish and chips and ice cream by the sea can cure most things. Even sibling rivalry. 6d

islandfairy I've locked myself in our room with this little one. The other two are sorting out their differences (read: calling each other names) in their room. Thank God for this baby. She's my anchor right now. #ivysagunimermaid 6d

islandfairy Just breathe. 6d
  •   myrnaivelisse «Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”»
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11:28-30‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    Praying your days get better soon. 6d

islandfairy Trying to put Robin down for a nap and I've been pinned down. She and Maia are driving me to distraction with their CONSTANT bickering. Any tips on how to make them get along? They have some sweet moments but 95% of the time they're screaming at each other. 7d
  •   trisadebono @islandfairy I am not a mom so my thinking might not be good. I think Maia is past kid phase whereas Robin is still a baby in Maia's eyes so anything the latter does probably irritates Maia plus most probably Robin wants to be like her big sis...I think the bickering will eventually stop when Maia learns this about her sister. There is a 6 yr diff bet me and my sis and she used to irritate me a lot whilst growing up but now we are best of the best. Its a phase. Maybe speaking to Maia can help, not scold her but treat her as a young soon-to-be-adult to give her a bit of importance and to help her realise to set an example. Guess I mixed you up now.... 7d
  •   ktollipop I don't know if this helps (or discourages) you: a few days ago I had to sit my two youngest down for a pretty stern lecture on getting along. I don't know how it will all turn out in the end but I just keep trying, keep letting them know my expectations in terms of sibling behavior...they get along well for the most part but I do think it is rare to have sisters who are best friends while growing up. I wish it was otherwise. Hang in there, Mau. You are doing better than I think you give yourself credit for. 7d
  •   beadlor When mine were young, I would ask them to take it to their room and close the door behind them. They usually stopped within minutes 7d
  •   nerdgeekdweeb Wait... Siblings are supposed to get along??? 6d

islandfairy She didn't start drawing (or colouring) until very recently so each doodle I find of hers is a masterpiece to me. I especially love the large nose and enormous hands she gives me. #robinsagunimermaid 1w

islandfairy It happened six months after Robin's birth and I feel it happening again. A great big wave of exhaustion is washing over me and I feel helpless. 1w
  •   annakelso The summer heat doesn't help. Wish I could help. 1w
  •   myrnaivelisse I'm sorry, Mau. I think every momma knows this feeling, we've all been there. Please, remind yourself that it will pass. Just like it passed before, it will pass again. You have such beautiful girls! Receive a very strong and energized hug from this, too, hot tiny island on the other side of the world! 1w
  •   thejoyfulbeards I've been feeling this the past week I've been home. I'm so tired and my kids have been crazy since I've returned. Let's be kind to ourselves. Take an extra minute with the morning coffee if we can, be ok to saying no if we need to and know soon we will be back to go-go mode. I hope today brings some smiles and rest for you. 1w
  •   tati680 Sigh, know the feeling mau, hang on there, it gets better when they grow a little. Treat yourself xxxx and get a siesta if you can! 1w

Not only is Lisa very talented but she's also a very nice person who put up with two fans interrupting her dinner. And Xlendi is beautiful. 2w
