♡ working mama ♡
...
me this afternoon after my first week back at work...“ hey bebe! I missed you! did you miss mama!? ” 😍 “ DAD!, DAD!“ 😒 #selfiehater
~
it seems as though daddy day care has been a hit this week and the word DAD has now replaced MUM 🤔 oh well! he still loves me (but is really hating on the camera lately 🙄). Routine has actually been the best for me and my health and wellness journey! So that’s definitely a massive positive!!! Work has been great and the transition this week has been really good! The people I work with have been amazing as has my very capable and wonderful husband aka currently SAHD. We are in both a good/bad situation with Thiago not working, but to know that I can be at work while my boys are home together is so comforting ♡ definitely not taking it for granted. big shout out to papa bear for being a champ and holding the fort!

Any of your partners Stay At Home Dads?
Have you returned to work this year?
How has the transition been?

Sending you all lots of love and light! Big love xx Lu 😘

Grace Papers (@gracepapers)

When empowering one impacts many.
Did you know just 46% of employers have a Paid Parental Leave policy? And for those who do, the average is just under 10 weeks.

Amazing outcome by this expectant Mum and employee who has negotiated a new policy for all employees in her workplace...and she’s not even in HR.

The Juggle is Real (@the.juggle.is.real)

I broke one of my rules today. I changed one of the clothes items pre picked. I bought a @countryroad skirt before my return to work to get something fresh in my wardrobe. I tried it on and I thought it fit. This morning, it did not fit and I could not make it work. Apparently on top of not knowing my style I don’t know my size 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ for the actual outfit I wore:
Top: @kmartaus
Skirt: @countryroad
Shoes: @zara .

Flex it like a Mum (@flexitlikeamum)

Spa day? Nah, the dishwasher steam is so much more effective 😂😂

Actually scratch that. I'll have a day lounging around in a robe, maybe a massage, glass of champers... Oh wait, I have kids and a job... 😬😮

Dishwasher it is then... 😂

Looks like Sealia is coming to work with me today. And the u heard soundtrack to that shot was Fight for your right to Party (beastie boys, kids. Although in my car most days musically are between 1986-1994. Or sometime in the1970s 😂). Have a great day y'all! 😘 .

I am feeling great! Still keeping up with my workout program.... Yesterday was Booty Day 🍑, and today is Day 10 - Core Cardio. Day 10 already!!!!! And I am ready for the next 70! I’m loving everything about 80 Day Obsession! ❤️
⭐️
Are you working hard at improving your health? If not, why not give it a try? You have nothing to lose.... And if you need a little push and some encouragement, send me a DM and I’d be happy to help! 🙂
⭐️
In four short weeks (if not before) you will see and experience changes.... And if you’re already working, keep going!!! The end results are SO worth it!
⭐️
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!!.

Mr Hart....what a mess 🤣 Colour has been added to the little moo cow. I really want to turn it over and see how it has turned out but I can’t move it so I’ll wait until he’s dried and then I’ll check it out. I love a little experiment ❤️
