Newborn, toddler + 5-year-olds first day of school. Here’s how I’m coping.

If I could have planned the timing of number 3 better, I would have. I wouldn’t have had the pregnancy start the very month I broke my ankle (I mean, seriously?). And I most definitely wouldn’t have had her be just 8-weeks-old when her oldest brother toddles off for his first day at school. But falling pregnant with ease isn’t one of my skills and the truth is, we wanted her for well over a year so when she showed up we were bursting with excitement and the whole planning for ‘ease in life’ was out the window.

Make It Fun! 5 Tips To Get The Kids Involved In Back To School Prep

2018 is shaping up to be a big year for me with a newborn, toddler and my oldest starting school. I’m already thinking about the mornings ahead and the ninja style organising I’ll need to do to get us out the door on time.  With that in mind, here are a few Back To School tips that I think will help me, and may just make your back to school transition a little easier too.

Healthy Baked Pancake Recipe

If you're looking for a brekkie you can make in bulk and re-heat during the week, this pancake is your ticket! It's from my 'Stace's Quick & Healthy Breakfasts' recipe eBook. It has a whole section of 'Make in bulk recipes' just like this one.

Gluten & Dairy-Free Sandwich Wraps

Quick, gluten-free and dairy-free sandwich wraps that are perfect for the kids lunchboxes. They don't break and freeze brilliantly or will even last 4-5 days in the fridge, in a good airtight container. They freeze really well too, I just pop them in a batch of 5 to freeze. The recipe for this one comes from Stace's Quick & Healthy Breakfasts' eBook.' It's full of quick, make-in-bulk recipes that will see you through days of healthy breakfasts (and lunches!)

One-Pot Slow Cooker Mexican Beef

If you're like me, you love a slow cooker meal that is more than just meat. I want it to have a bunch of veg, ideally some great carbs and have the ability to be made in to multiple meals. This one-pot slow cooker Mexican beef is one of the most popular recipes from my 4-Week Slow Cooker Meal Plan. You can join and start the very same week here. Over 300 Mummas have done this course and LOVED it.


Stacey-Clare-Pregnancy-Family I still can’t quite believe it and I really should because this mumma is halfway in and waddling already!
