Posted in For the love of the body, Positivity, This is MY YEAR

For The First Time 

The gurgles grew louder and louder. She doesn’t cry so much straight off just gives me a heads up. ‘Hey Mum, I’m here can you hurry up? I’m hungry’. My brain tricked me in to thinking it was the time to be waking up for the day, but no, it was more like 3 or 4am. 

For the first time since Willow was born I woke up pain free and able to roll over without strain. 

You know it’s been one of those things that I should do something about it but have instead been doing the three point roll to the edge of the bed and hobbled to the basinet. Hoping with all my fingers and toes crossed that I don’t do my back completely as I pick her up. 

Miraculously it has all cleared up and all I can put it down to is exercise. We’ve been walking to check out the ducks and doing some pilates and that simple point of movement has ironed out all of the stiffness and taken away the pain. 

I’ll be feeling like a new woman in no time. 



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.
