JUST SNAPPED @littleswallowchinadoll

Dubai, UAE

Hot tip: it’s extremely sweaty work visiting Dubai in summer with two kids you need to carry when they get tired. And when it’s 40+ degrees, they get tired pretty quickly.

Santorini, Greece

Know what kids love more than being made to stand in one place for an hour? Being made to stand in one place for an hour in the blazing hot sun, in a crowd of people all trying to get the best view of the famous Santorini sunset in front of you.

Mykonos, Greece

When your kids are 2 (not even) and 4, you’re really only travelling for yourself.

3 weeks with Wolfie & Wilder

We just got back from holidays and they already seem like a distant memory. It seems strange to say, but it was the longest continuous stretch of time I’ve ever spent with both kids. 3 weeks. 3 WEEKS! Man, it is hard work looking after your own kids every day.

3 generations in the Hunter Valley

There were times after we decided to move from London to Sydney that I doubted we made the right decision.

Blue Mountains memories (or not)

I always suspected I had a pretty bad memory, but lately I've realised just how bad it is.

Triple M (miscarriage, meningitis, Mother's Day)

Yep, you heard it here first - that's what Triple M actually stands for - miscarriage, meningitis and Mother's Day. I mean, I know I don't have it that bad, and there are so many people in the world who have real problems, but right now I'm literally holding my arms out shouting "COME ON!" to the universe.

Warning: this one comes with graphic details

Tomorrow I should have been 12 weeks pregnant, and into the "safe" period for announcing to the world we were expecting our third little baby. But yesterday happened, and boy, I did NOT see that coming.

Christmas time in the city

Yeah, yeah, I know it's February already. But in mother of small kids time, that means I'm basically the most organised person ever. Because seriously, who has time to blog just for memory sake when you're knee deep in fart jokes from your three year old and every time you take your eyes off your one year old you find him standing on top of a table?

He's a Wild(er) one

Sometimes I look at the photos around our house and I think "would anyone even know I have Wilder?"

Bowral without babies

In another life, Ms R and I partied in Shanghai, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Russia, just to name a few places.
