Christmas Cheer That Turns to Christmas Fear

What do you get somebody who has cared so beautifully for your child all year? Do you think it is necessary?

There is this fear of being that person that doesn’t care enough, if I don’t care they will stop caring for my child. Isn’t that how it works? Sometimes I just think too much about most things. Welcome to my life. 
A friend who works in Child Care said it’s certainly not expected (except when your child is a monster) but absolutely no chocolates, there goes my original idea. Another said wine as their child would send anyone to drink…. Sometimes that rings true in our household too. 
This is the first time I have been faced with the idea so I went with home made, not too over the top. Matisse helped me, by that I mean stirred sporadically, tried to eat everything in sight and screamed for cuddles a majority of the way through. But we got there 🙂 and she is proud of herself. We have our cookies made and Palma’s Pantry relish bought, I’m set. 
When this…..


Becomes this….


✨Merry Christmas to all of Matisse’s teachers and yes I’ll probably throw some wine in too✨


Hi! I'm Kate, I hail from Melbourne with my three loves, Willow, Matisse and my husband Dan. I enjoy staying active, attempting to be crafty, discovering new recipes and fun things to do with my daughters. I have found that becoming a mum has tapped in to this raw positive energy that I never knew I had. In this weird new world I live in I've found that I need to look after myself more to keep myself healthy and be a positive role model for the littler ones. Keeping this in mind has kept me on track to create the best me and be a better Mum. Well it's a work in progress but we all need to aspire to something right? I am also a writer, chugging away at that elusive novel but now is the time people. I am writing and you get to hear all about it, just joking, I won't bore you with that. If you want to know where I'm at please feel free to ask it might give me a boot to get me going in my less motivated of moments. I'm passionate about women's rights, equality, children's rights and mental health. I want to say social justice as a whole but it is so broad. I believe we all have the right to be the best that we can. I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing my crazy life.
