16/3/19 || 2:15pm Making the most of the time we do have, letting go of the reins and watching him Dad on his own terms, make memories that are only theirs to treasure and strengthen the bonds between them. at Auckland Domain

17/3/19 || 1:17pm And the weight of sadness from Friday feels just as heavy as the acknowledgement and appreciation that I have the privilege to spend another day with my loved ones. No words I could write here will ever be enough to express my utter despair for the Muslim community but my own actions and thoughts from Friday forward, the way I teach and raise my sons, the stand I take when I am confronted with any form of racism - this is how I can support the healing of our country’s brokenness. #BeAGoodHuman at Piha, New Zealand

11/2/19 || 11:54am It’s not a selfish, it’s a selfie. It’s not showing off, it’s showing up. It’s not ‘look at me’, it’s ‘look, it’s me’. It’s not ‘show me some love and tell me I’m beautiful’, it’s ‘I’m showing myself and I feel good about it’. Post the selfie, post 12 in a row, post only selfies - they’re your squares. . . . . . . ⊛ . #thelemons #nzblogger #nzmums #takingbackmysquares #selfie #nztwins #kiwitwins #fraternaltwins #mumof5 #mumof5boys #mammaof5boys #boymama #twinboys #DCDAtwins #DIDItwins #flashesofdelight #kass_and_kai #kassius #kaiser #thelongsontwins #firstperiscopetwins #ourtinymoments #momentsofmine #stopdropandmom #thesincerestoryteller #ourtinymoments #our_everyday_moments #discoverunder5k

14/2/19 || 8:30 & 8:31pm While it’s never been a deal breaker kind of day, though we’ve never had date nights or surprised each other with flowers and personalised cookies, even though we both think we don’t need a day to say, ‘I love you’, we did venture out to the beach with our two little hearts, a soft serve and a coffee. . . . . . . ⊛ . #thelemons #takingbackmysquares #valentinesday2019 #nzmums #nztwins #kiwitwins #fraternaltwins #mumof5 #mumof5boys #mammaof5boys #boymama #twinboys #DCDAtwins #DIDItwins #flashesofdelight #kass_and_kai #kassius #kaiser #thelongsontwins #firstperiscopetwins #ourtinymoments #momentsofmine #stopdropandmom #thesincerestoryteller #ourtinymoments #our_everyday_moments #discoverunder5k at Orewa Beach

Reposted from @__the__lemons__ - 12/2/19 || 11:20am #gifted @gobstopperz.co.nz My Big Boi - one minute whooshing blocks around the floor (let’s be honest, we seek and destroy, not build with the blocks at the moment), banging drums (and once again, honesty is the best policy, banging his brother with the stick) and chasing each other with the tambourine .... then silence. He had picked up his @gobstopperz.co.nz and just laid down to sleep of his own accord, leaving me to play with Kassius, the pocket rocket, who didn’t settle for another half an hour. Whatever your thoughts on dummies, Kaiser finds comfort in his, it’s a reassurance for him and if he is still searching for it, I’m not going to deny him. Thank you Brooke for gifting us these new designs, we now have them placed around for Kaiser to choose when he needs one.

19/12/17 || throwback Hey mama scrolling through Instagram, in your newborn bubble, your little bundle of squish might be snuggled into your chest, might be wrapped up next to you, might be under the watchful eye of NICU staff while you’re sat in a chair waiting for the okay to cuddle, might be wide awake demanding another feed and it’s some time in the night, you don’t even know what day it is but all you want is sleep. I was you once - some days, I’m you all over again even though we’re one year on - and I scrolled looking for connection, for a thread to hang on to, for inspiration, for a break, for something to keep me sane, to keep me awake, for somewhere to find advice, for a place to record my memories, for a place to find strength in familiarity, for something I could relate to. I didn’t find much back then. I found a lot of pictures that made me feel inadequate, less than, not enough, unpretty, lumpy and bumpy, unhappy. I looked for a long time and I looked really hard to find other mum’s who encouraged with words, inspired with real life moments, related via common experiences, commiserated my rough times with me, celebrated my victories with my newborn babies and built relationships to get me through the relentless constant that is the newborn phase. So, hey mama, we’re here - untidy, un-colour coordinated, unfiltered, exhausted, yelling, crying, laughing at our mistakes, sharing our attempts, unwashed, unbrushed, surviving and with our “imperfect” “not insta worthy” pictures. We’re here understanding, empathetic and hoping you don’t compare the amazing job your doing in all it’s raw and messy truth to the posed perfection you might see popping up in your feed when you’re so vulnerable. Mama, you’re doing better than you realise right now, trust us. . . . . . . . ⊛ #awkwardtruths #thelemons #takingbackmysquares #nzmums #nztwins #kiwitwins #fraternaltwins #mumof5 #mumof5boys #mammaof5boys #boymama #twinboys #DCDAtwins #flashesofdelight #kass_and_kai #kassius #kaiser #thelongsontwins #firstperiscopetwins #ourtinymoments #momentsofmine #stopdropandmom #thesincerestoryteller #ourtinymoments #our_everyday_moments #discoverunder5k at North Shore Hospital

11/2/19 || 2:21pm Trying to find my vibe that sits within a set of drawers, that hangs in my half of the wardrobe, that sits in a pile next to my bed waiting to be placed somewhere, anywhere. Trying to find my style in a hot season when I prefer the cooler temperatures of autumn where layering adds to a look, in a boho flirty season when I prefer a tomboyish take on current trends, in a season of florals and jewel tones when I prefer blacks, whites, greys and all while trying to have it work for me as a twin mum. Trying to dress so I can express myself, so I can feel confident as I make my way about my day, so I feel like me but ...extra, so I feel like my partner is proud of me, so I can reflect the fact that I do value myself, so I can impress myself! Trying to dress with what I already have, with what is affordable, with what I love, with op shop finds, with Kmart bargains, with small business, with the intent to make myself happy. . . . . . #mumOOTD #OOTD #personalstyle #linen #linenlove #minimalist #nzblogger #mammalemon #twinmama #twinmum #mumof5boys #nzmum #twinmumlife #selfie #takingbackmysquares #outfit #mumof5 #thelemons #dressedinwhite #mumbun #outfitoftheday #thesemomentsofmine #motherhooduncensored

26/1/19 || 3:53pm You might have noticed our absence in stories and liking or comments on your posts on weekends and at night time. It’s because these times are ours as a family. I’ve made a conscious decision and effort to limit scroll time when we are together so there are more hours of real connect and it’s just us, not us plus Instagram. The rules are simple: odd post, the odd story, the odd catch up perhaps in my self imposed Insta-less times, a morning coffee long story catch up every day but the mindless scrolling, the endless stories, the double tap habit that’s so engrained I’ve ended up an hour deep and liked sponsored content from the most random of sources - no more. Your content will still be there for me to see, to like, to comment on the Monday, your posts and stories and polls and questions are still there from the night before. I’m just prioritising my real life ahead of my online life so I don’t miss the experience that goes with the moments I capture and share, moments like this one. Kaiser so excited to wear his glasses. Look at his face! Kass has his signature cheeky grin and he LOVES clapping hands. They both do, the both love, ‘If you’re happy and you know it’ and we often sing it when they get upset. Do you have limits for how much time you spend online? . . . . . ⊛ . #thelemons #nzmums #nztwins #kiwitwins #fraternaltwins #mumof5 #mumof5boys #mammaof5boys #boymama #twinboys #DCDAtwins #DIDItwins #flashesofdelight #kass_and_kai #kassius #kaiser #thelongsontwins #firstperiscopetwins #ourtinymoments #momentsofmine #stopdropandmom #thesincerestoryteller #ourtinymoments #our_everyday_moments #discoverunder5k at Government Gardens

8/2/19 || 11:17am The see saw of #mumlife where the minutes, hours, days, weeks can have you reaching ultimate highs and experiencing debilitating lows, the chop and change of mood within one days beginning to its end has you wondering just what the f**k is going on. You question beliefs, practices, routines, you challenge the status quo, you follow the masses, you put all your eggs in one basket, you try things you’ve never heard of, you do nothing at all and just let the day lead you. It’s hard. It’s easy. It’s eventful. It’s mundane. It’s #looplife. It’s surprising. It’s overwhelming. It’s rewarding. It’s confusing. It’s simple. It’s #mumlife - stretching your emotional stability to it’s limits most days but with one underlying thread that has such immeasurable strength that it can keep your world from falling apart, from spinning off course, from feeling as if all you do, all you say, all you think and all that you are is for nothing : it’s love. Love found in impromptu cuddles, sleepy smiles, funny dances and cheeky laughs. Love found in dishes done, a midnight bottle made, “I love you” and a triple goodbye kiss. Love found in security that bills are paid, petrol is in the car, food is in the fridge and your chocolate stash is untouched. Love found in moments that make you cry because they are so beautiful, words strung together that speak so strongly to your heart and mind, messages that make you laugh out loud to no one and songs that make you dance. Love is found in your raw stories, your fire selfies, your fave #ootd and your make up routine. Love is found in shopping dates, coffee catch ups, cooking meals and walks. Love is found in discovering new places, new people, new hobbies and new Netflix programmes. Love is found in your all day every day alongside those difficult moments and the triumphant. Hold tight to your love thread, the strongest one you have and if you look, it’s woven through everything. Here’s just one of my love moments for today. . . . . ⊛ . #thelemons #nzmums #nztwins #kiwitwins #fraternaltwins #mumof5 #mumof5boys #mammaof5boys #boymama #takingbackmysquares #kaiser #flashesofdelight #kass_and_kai #kassius

5/2/19 || 7:05am I love fashion, I love seeing a kick ass #ootd pop up in my feed, I love shopping, I love putting outfits together, I love saving outfit inspo posts and looking back over them, I love a good flatlay, I love a well executed collage. I obsess with outfit combos and possibilities, I obsess over specific clothing items much longer than a normal person (there’s a Karen Walker dress from The Village, Southern Hemisphere AW 10, Look 12 that I’ve always wanted), I obsess over fashion editorials and runway looks, I obsessively stalk street style accounts, I obsess over fashion magazines. I enjoy getting dressed until the moment strikes that my outfit isn’t working, I enjoy finding affordable options of more expensive items until the moment hits that I can’t afford that either, I enjoy scouring op shops until the moment hits all the good stuff has been raided by online thrift resellers, I enjoy a new purchase until the moment hits that I’m probably going to get judged for my consumerism and contribution to horrific working conditions and landfills, I enjoy monochrome dressing until the moment hits that I’d love a little print or colour in my day, I enjoy oversized and boyish until the moment hits that I want a 90s midriff and a ra-ra skirt. Fashion, clothing, personal style - dare I say it’s almost as loaded, dividing and triggering as say, body image, self acceptance and parenting choices because of the conversations surrounding sustainability, supporting small business, supply chain transparency and the mere triviality and frivolity some people tend to view fashion with. I don’t know what my point is or where this is going but I do know this - you’re going to see me indulge myself more with fashion, with styling, with outfits because it’s part of who I am, part of what I enjoy, part of what makes me happy and this is another part of me taking back my squares. . . . . #mammalemon #takingbackmysquares #thisisme #ootd #selfies #thelemons #twinmum #nzmum #mumof5boys #twinmumlife #mumofmultiples #shadowplay #momentsofmine #honestmotherhood #mumof5

7/2/19 || 8:05am Kassius. Our little engineer. Moving things from one place to another, layering, building, shifting, balancing, seeing what fits into where, inquisitive about how things work. You can see his little face engraved with thought and wonder, the discovery of cause and effect. The question now is how to catch him and change that drenched overnight nappy while he’s so determined to build his structure and bound to fight and wriggle with every ounce of energy his little body contains. . . . ⊛ . #takingbackmysquares #postwhatilikewhenilike #thelemons #nzmums #nztwins #kiwitwins #fraternaltwins #mumof5 #mumof5boys #mammaof5boys #boymama #twinboys #DCDAtwins #DIDItwins #flashesofdelight #kass_and_kai #kassius #kaiser #thelongsontwins #firstperiscopetwins #ourtinymoments #momentsofmine #stopdropandmom #thesincerestoryteller #ourtinymoments #our_everyday_moments #discoverunder5k

7/2/19 || 7:36am I’ve been trapped under this deliciousness for the past hour, his brother is still asleep in bed and I’m dying for a coffee but I wouldn’t relinquish this moment for anything. The dishes, the floors, the washing getting wet in this summer rain, the cooling coffee on the bench with the milk slowly curdling and the froth I got just perfect that’s probably dissipated - it can all wait. I’m busy drinking in all the details of his breathing, his little finger twitches, his eyebrows and lips mimicking his dreams, his squeaks and enjoying the warmth of his little body cradled into mine. Ooh, I love you so Big Boi. . . . ⊛ . #thelemons #takingbackmysquares #nzmums #nztwins #kiwitwins #fraternaltwins #mumof5 #mumof5boys #mammaof5boys #boymama #twinboys #DCDAtwins #DIDItwins #flashesofdelight #kass_and_kai #kassius #kaiser #thelongsontwins #firstperiscopetwins #ourtinymoments #momentsofmine #stopdropandmom #thesincerestoryteller #ourtinymoments #our_everyday_moments #discoverunder5k

6/2/19 || 9:58am Kaiser Longson, sometimes mate, you just bust out a new trick that has us nervously laughing. The twerking was cool, the blatant disregard for your neck safety, not so much.

3/3/19 || 10:04am + 10:30am We discovered our new “local barber” @barber_kaz_nz purely by accident and not only was it a cool space but the boys got a great cut and experience for a really good price. A quick walk also led us to @homestyledepot where they’re having a closing down sale (we picked up a cute cushion and there’s an impressive selection of faux flowers that I am in love with) and we had our first and last amazing coffee there as the cafe section closes down today - and a special thanks to Coops mate Joe’s Mum for treating the boys to a hot chocolate, on the house. A bit late to the party so we’re still hunting for our “local” cafe. For my viewing pleasure, my Mr Coops and Jasper Bing, ready for the first day of Term 1 tomorrow. . . . . . . ⊛ . #theharrisboys #thelemons #supportlocalnz #takingbackmysquares #nzmums #nztwins #kiwitwins #fraternaltwins #mumof5 #mumof5boys #mammaof5boys #boymama #twinboys #DCDAtwins #DIDItwins #flashesofdelight #kass_and_kai #kassius #kaiser #thelongsontwins #firstperiscopetwins #ourtinymoments #momentsofmine #stopdropandmom #thesincerestoryteller #ourtinymoments #our_everyday_moments #discoverunder5k at Barber Depot-Silverdale
