The days are long but the years are short...

Thursday, January 17, 2019 | By Rachael Archer
“The days are long, but the years are short.” This quote has always rung true for me, and it slapped me in the face again last weekend. Over the past few days, I’ve realised just how grown up my kids really are! For example... Bella (aged 4) bathed Noah (aged 2) last night, bathed herself, and got herself dressed for bed.  ..

Is this all there is?

I read something today that really resonated. It was a post someone had shared about why mothers sometimes feel invisible. And it really struck a chord with me, so here's my own version of what #mumlife (https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/mumlife) can be like in my world 😀 Intellectually, we know how important our role is, right? We are literally raising the next generation of people  ..

In the "too hard" basket

Thursday, October 11, 2018 | By Rachael Archer
We went to Bella’s prep interview today. Things are starting to get very real, and our little girl will be starting school in a few short months! It feels like just the other day we were driving our brand new baby girl home from hospital (a ridiculously slow drive, mind you)... And just like that, she’s at school! We’ve still got a few more years until Noah starts his ..

Why can't I look like that?

Thursday, August 23, 2018 | By Rachael Archer
"Why can't I look like that?" Ever have those moments where you hear yourself say something and instantly wish you could take it back? That was me, just 2 days ago. I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a photo of a fitness influencer that I look up to, and found myself wishing that I looked like her. Despite all the work I've done on myself in terms of personal develo ..

A word about my post-baby body...

Thursday, August 02, 2018 | By Rachael Archer
Getting back into exercise after having a baby can be a tricky thing. You can be all motivated to start, but then have a check up with your doctor, who recommends you wait for a bit longer. Or you go to a session and attempt to do an exercise, but realize that your strength has disappeared. What was once easy is now super challenging, or even not possible right now. I know how ..

Change your thoughts, change your life

Thursday, June 14, 2018 | By Rachael Archer
Taking the kids to swimming lessons has always been Luke’s thing. As a breastfeeding, co-sleeping attachment parent, there isn’t a whole lot of time I’ve spent away from the kids... But swimming was always that 1 thing that I didn’t have to think about. That was, until Luke broke his thumb recently. He cant go in the water, he can’t really use his thumb for we ..

How to stop feeling so tired all the time

Friday, April 27, 2018 | By Rachael Archer
There's no doubt about it, parenting and lack of sleep go together. Whether it's the early days of life with a newborn, or your kids are teething or unwell, or maybe you've been "blessed" with kids who wake every few hours every night - there will be so many days throughout your parenting journey where you'll be feeling tired and lethargic. While I'm certainly not here with a mi ..

We all have to start somewhere

Thursday, April 12, 2018 | By Rachael Archer
We went to watch the Commonwealth Games weightlifting last week. We watched the 48kg women compete. And we were all absolutely blown away! I knew they’d be strong. But watching these women lifting twice their body weight above their heads... Well, it was pretty special. And that goes for all of the competitors and elite athletes out there. What they can  ..
