Coming from a big family, Christmas has always been my favourite holiday but becoming a mama has really taken it next level. My little guy LOVES “nanta”. I mean really loves- talks about him all day, everyday throwing tantrums when he CAN’T sit on his lap. I know, totally weird. But it means I can already pull out “I’m going to tell Santa” card if he’s misbehaving. Gold.
I’m trying a new Christmas cocktail this year: EGGNOGG. I know us Aussies haven’t really taken to it because it’s so bloody hot at Christmas, but this recipe is served on ice and is absolutely delicious. The soundtrack features a little Kylie Minogue, Jackson 5 and Run DMC to get you into the festive spirit.
Merry Christmas Mamas! Thank you for joining me on this journey. Hope the big man’s good to you and your family. peace & love xo
