My original plan was to write a post about slowing down, forcing myself to sit more, and not overdoing it. But then, I realized, that if I really wanted to take a moment for a break… that I should take the backseat for the day and bring you a guest post by a pretty little mama and her fun blog 😉 SO, here is Kristy to tell you a bit about her sweet little family. Be sure to stop by her blog and say hello 🙂 
Hi ohdeardrea readers, I’m Kristy from “The boy named after a car” and I’m super, super, add another super, excited to be guest posting here on one of favourite blogs. I tried to come up with something fun or interesting to post about today, but truth be told, I’m a sleep deprived mama and, I got nothing.

A little about me.

I’m a 29 year old Melbourne based, Aussie mama of two, three if you include my four legged friend Nutella, better know around here as dirt dog. I’m addicted to reality TV, namely big brother, and diet coke but that’s nothing compared to the 2 min noodle sandwiches I survived my early 20’s on. I’m wife to Matt, my high school sweetheart, only the truth is we were high school dropouts, but that’s another story. We named our first born Harper de Ville, as in Cadillac coupe de Ville, after a car. 7 months later The boy named after a car blog was born.
Becoming a mother is hands down my greatest achievement, nothing and I mean nothing else has come close in comparison.
This is Harper de Ville, he’s the boy everyone thinks is a girl. My first born, The boy with the big eyes and bigger heart. The one who made me a mum.
Harper’s a climber, overactive, curious, sensitive, gentle, a great dancer, a better singer. The boy that changed my life. Harper’s mutable allergies, is the reason behind our vegan baking/cooking. Unlike Drea I have a very sweet tooth, if you’re after vegan cakes or biscuits come my way! I have you covered.

And Charlie Mae, our latest addition. She’s a screamer, in a good way. Happy but fragile, smiley but wary. Perfect in every way. A hands on girl who knows what she wants and wont settle for less. A girl that challenges me, she showed me the joy that comes with holding and wearing your baby. She taught me not to worry what the book says. Our baby bird. My little girl.

Thanks for having us Drea.
