‘Henley always wanting to practice his letters to copy his big bro,’ she said in the caption. 

‘Also this book is so good to learn letters etc, it comes with this pen and the ink disappears after a while so they can always practice,’ she said of the children’s workbook.

The fashion designer followed with a post showing the book for other interested parents, and said in the caption: ‘It was a random late night Facebook ad purchase, and it’s been a goodie.’

Earlier this month, Nadia spoke to the Herald Sun about balancing homeschooling, while running her clothing label Henne.

‘It’s almost our new normal living with lockdowns. With kids and homeschooling and Henne and Spray Aus, we’re all trying to make it work,’ she said.

‘You have to keep going and find a way. Aston being in prep, that’s a big adjustment in itself. He and Henley both have personality and are best friends, they’re so into sport.’

Nadia went on to say her two sons wake up early every morning to play basketball outside.
