We are a little family of 4 living just north of Byron… originally from Sydney.. we have been up here for nearly 6 years.
There is myself, Krystle - I have a jewellery label & little shop in Byron - Krystle Knight jewellery.
Asha - my partner - he is a carpenter & he grew up, up here.. however we met when he was living in Sydney.
We have Ryder Wylde- he just turned 3 + Alaska Skye, she is just 9 months.
Friends would always say “this too shall pass”, in the moment of my first baby, this advice was hard to get my head around, as I thought the tough times would never end…but the 2nd time round, I now know, that it is true.. everything is just a phase.. some days are harder than others & then you blink & they are 3!!
The saying - The days are slow bye the years are fast” is so true.
A word that also stuck with me is ‘Surrender’
Surrendering when your body is growing a baby, surrendering in birth... as your body just knows what to do...& then surrendering as a parent, every single day.
The juggle is real!
Asha & I spend a lot of our time discussing pick up / drop off times & days + as we both work for ourselves - there is the juggle of who gets to work on which day, with Alaska also being so little & not yet in daycare.
I am lucky that Asha is super supportive of me being at work & that he has always been open to spending more time at home with the kids, while I go back to work. I am also fortunate enough that the KKJ team is growing, which is allowing me to take off days with the kids when I need to.
A Baby carrier! Game changer! It gives a mum her 2 hands back!
Silicon Spoon & Folk- Perfect for Alaska starting out her food journey
Hoodie Bath Towel - We use these towels for both kids every night!
Bundl Wool Wrap - I wish I had this for Alaska when she was little - so cosy!!
