The path of life is crazy isn’t it, so up and down 🎢 I had and still have all these plans for my business and more so personal brand. Having children is the best thing that has happened to me but it’s slowed me down so much and it’s been a hard pill to swallow. My husband has still been able to press forward with his (our) mechanical business and he is doing so well, he is the definition of an entrepreneur. He didn’t come from money, he worked his ass off to build the empire he has today. I say he because even though we are happily married and have both worked hard in our own rights to get us where we are today, for the last 5 years I’ve been “Mum” a hat I wear so proudly but oddly enough I still feel so un-fulfilled. I feel like I just want to do it all but I can’t, I want to be able to work the hours I did pre kids (but still have kids and not have them in care all the time) I want to be able to make the money I made before kids, I want to be able to hustle harder but I can’t, I do my best but it’s a juggle, a juggle that I’m happy to keep doing, I know as the years pass I’ll get better and I am happy to be raising my kids as I don’t want anyone else to do it, I just feel bad that sometimes I feel so angry and bitter inside that I can’t do it all 🤯 I left school when I was 15 and went straight into a business certificate then onto a trade certificate as my parents said I had to have a qualification (fair call) I did Beauty Therapy because it was short and I just wanted to get some qualifications under my belt and at this stage I still knew I wanted to do something business oriented. I moved on to Personal Training, to which I only half completed whilst I was completing my nutrition qualification then back to Finnish my personal training qualification a while later. I did most of this while I was working up on a mine site trying to earn some good money to put behind me so I was able to set myself up in some way. I’ve always aimed high, had a million things on my plate and love how my brain works well when under pressure. I know I haven’t run out of time, I know more than anything my kids are worth every personal sacrifice I am making 💭

Well that’s our last Easter together as 4 🐣Bring on the next little bit of time we have left before the new little bubba joins us 💖✨ Part of me is comfortable with our current routine and I’m scared to “upset the apple cart” but I can’t wait to hold my brand new baby and love them just the way I love Jax and Kennedy 🥰 I know it’s probably going to be a decent adjustment period but hopefully it all works out without many speed bumps or sleepless nights 😆🤷🏼‍♀️ I’ll be sharing what I pack in my hospital bag as I do it probably in the next month but for those soon to be Mamas, check out @misskyreeloves blog on what to pack in your hospital bag as she has the most helpful blog ❤️ 3rd time around I feel like I just know what I’ll need without thinking about it but I remember when I was packing for Jax I had NO IDEA 🤯

Best Friend • Soul Mate • Business Partner • Father of my Children but most of all my husband ❤️ Thankful for you (most days) not last week when you had me in the hospital on our first day of holidays 😝🙄 PS - I took the stitches out of his ear and it’s now attached to his head again 😂 May be a bit crooked but it’s attached 🤷🏼‍♀️ This photo was taken about 2.5 years ago, it was our first family photo shoot after I had Kennedy (@sandiemallon_photographer you are so special, you’ve captured so many beautiful memories for us💕🙌🏼)

I mentioned recently I was starting to think about my postpartum recovery and plan of attack, so far I’ve gained 14kgs 😝with 7/8weeks left hoping I don’t put on too much more but this is officially when baby starts to really grow and chub up so we will see🤷🏼‍♀️ I mentioned that I was going to be incorporating @srchealth recovery shorts into my postpartum journey and I will also go back to really focusing on my nutrition, as I’ll be having a c section I’ll allow adequate rest time and then see a physio to check for any ab seperation then my plan is to start with some light cardio, yoga classes at my gym and then also some light exercises to strengthen my pelvic floor and back. I will then switch my training up to a more HIIT style and get back into lifting some heavier weights with more intensity perhaps around 3 months post birth (I think) will all depend on how I recover but that’s my plan at this point in time💕 I have 8 weeks left but secretly hoping I have 6.5/7 🙈 I know my body will do the right thing for baby and me and I just can’t wait ❤️ Still no name or even a short list, there’s a few we have thrown around but none we are like yep! It’s out of those 3 🤯 How stressful but Jax was un named for around 4 hours and Kennedy was un named for about 2-3 days😝 PS - all the @hannahpolites vibes in this photo #positivepregnancybodyimage

Little sissy is going to be big sissy soon 😭 I’m not scared of having another baby and being responsible of 3 little bebes, it’s more that I’m wondering how I’ll give them all their own time and attention, give me a couple of weeks adjustment time and I’m sure I’ll figure it out, also not wanting to make my husband feel like I don’t have time for him 😭 Guessing routine will be my best friend🤯🧘🏽‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ Any tips from mamas of 3 + ?
