Sometimes it’s like I wake up out of my mombie transfix and realise a whole slab of time has gone by and I know not if I’ve even been awake. I must have been of course because the Vicklets are right beside me doing okay and growing and becoming generally very capable and cool individuals.
I haven’t been getting my camera out and capturing their childhood nearly enough with these entire slabs of existence escaping from me. With this in mind, I wrangled the Vicklets into the car and headed for a playground just out of town, dressed in their new Indie & Sloan tees which had just landed in our mail box.
Of the 63 zillions shots taken I have chosen my favorite of each Vicklet to share with you today and a couple of extras for baby spam sake.
Little Vick is now five and here he was counting down the days till he started a new chapter, the school one. He was both enjoying the freedom from schedules and routine and yet getting frustrated and bored because he actually craves them. His Pippin Rabbit tee suits his information seeking, robust nature. My Little Vick is grounded yet seeks the comfort of home.
Baby Vick is two and a half and a completely different breed to his brother. Like COMPLETELY x 100. He is my little James Dean. So cool and full of spunk. He ignites concern in me from his wild, fearless spirit. I continually worry about him yet I couldn’t wish for anything more in a little person who is seeking out his place in this world. So his ‘Stay Wild, My Child‘ tee is ridiculously perfect. Everyone who meets him and sees this tee on him can’t help but nod.
Then there is my Mango, my burst of sunshine. For the last seven months of his life he has been so contented, so smiley, so warm and embracing. He teaches me so much with his generous nature. He is wearing Cap’n Iggy Owl tee because cute matches with cute right?
Could I get three more different children??
When I realised I was destined to be a mumma of boys I was determined to dress them well. The idea of construction and Avengers tees made me cringe (although we do have plenty of them). I wanted to find unique, stylish and quality clothing for my men in making. Girls don’t just get all the fun! So I went about finding labels that fulfilled my check list and it was here that I discovered Indie & Sloan, a mummy made company. Their clothing is designed and printed in QLD and don’t we love we like to support Aussie?
Their generally unisex designs are spunky with a dash of attitude which suits my Vicklets to a tee. Like, perfecto! The fact that their 100% cotton, made with eco & kiddy friendly paints and aren’t made in a sweat shop ticked all those moral things inside me which makes me feel like I’m supporting something good, something quality.
They also wash up real good, because here they’d have to. I’m a fan.
Thanks to Megan, the superstar creator behind the label who has teamed up with Knocked Up & Abroad for my first GIVEAWAY for the year, you could get your very own Indie & Sloan tee! Yeeha!
