Why you should never leave dogs & babies alone

The poor dog is bound to get hurt.

Stage Mum on the loose!!!

In case you didn't see it on the newstands, or on my FaceBook, Twitter or anywhere else I can shout about it!! My baby girl made the cover of Cosmo Pregnancy - Baby Checklist, the new annual magazine. Loving her cute little ears and skirt for the wardrobe shot! Not to mention the numerous fashion and product spreads throughout the mag! I especially love the pink tutu!!

I am sooo proud of my little angel! She really loves the camera and even at home poses when I take happy snaps of all her milestones and cheeky little tricks. I think I really am going to be a stage mum!

Although her grandparents are probably even more excited than me! Nanny Burns has shown every single one of her hair dressing clients, the girls at the local shops, the bank tellers and the people at the post office and anyone else who stops to talk to her down on the South Coast. Plus Grandma has bought nearly every copy available in Gippsland Victoria and is even sending a copy to Aunty Helen in LA!

Stay tuned folks, for a book signing and special appearances at your local news agency. But not until I get her some hair extensions and fake nails! ;)

Domestic Goddess

It's not quite what I had envisioned but I do believe I am a domestic goddess!

This week I have made Brett's lunch every day, baked numerous lunch box snacks for work and experimented (successfully) with new dinner and dessert recipes. Plus preparing fresh and nutritious meals for Ava, being a full time Mum, doing endless loads of washing and shopping and keeping the house reasonably clean and presentable.

I still draw the line at ironing, sorry Burnsy but you know that was in the marriage fine print. Plus I still have a decent post pregnancy muffin top, my sexy underwear has been replaced with maternity bras and Bridgette Jones Knickers and we no longer have the additional income to visit the beautician & hairdresser - so all maintenance has been DIY and not quite as regular as pre-baby...

I have also decided to make our my environmentally friendly household cleaners. It's important to note that I have just started looking into it, and I am prone to whimsical flights of fancy, particularly when there is major effort involved so we'll see where this goes!

So in the domestic goddess stakes, I am probably more Alice from the Brady Bunch than Bree from Desperate Housewives. Lucky Burnsy!!
