Things I Know


This is a guest post from my friend Kate, who blogs about all kinds of interesting things including activities for kids, recipes, gardeing, printables and 'life on the Pickle Farm' at her blog picklebums.com.




I've known Shae for a good few years now. We've shared a whole lot in that time; struggling as new mums, the joys and trials of subsequent pregnancies and more babies, the every day crazies of having small kids, the insanity of shift working husbands, an intense love of singstar.... and so much more. Over the years I've gotten to know quite a bit about Shae and I'm going to share that with you today.

Things I know about Shae.

She has an awesome way with words. She is singularly responsible for my children's use of the phrase "bum face".

She is beautiful and constantly inspires me to love myself and my body, regardless of what size it is, or isn't.

She is brave. One adult vs seven girls aged 2-8 years at a sleepover?? Perhaps insane is a better word!

She is a great Mum. Through all the ups and downs, all the hard days and long nights, the times when we wonder together why on earth we ever thought having children was a good idea, Shae is always trying to do the best for her beautiful girls.

She has a really cool and funny husband. I will never forget the first time I met him, I still get the giggles when I think of the perfectly timed joke he made about vaginas.

She is a fabulous friend... and I am not just saying that because she has promised to help me bury the evidence if I ever murder one of my annoying family members.

So what do you know?

I keep meaning to do this every week. I will think up something this week for next week.
I think Shae is pretty cool too. I've only met her twice.
I think I have to come and play singstar with you ladies.
