Almost 1 year to the day, Evie met her BAE. πŸ’— This was also the day I drank the Disney Koolaid.

This is how an Evie looks with Flu Type A.😷 (Even AFTER the nose swab!) #mylittletittle #sickday #flu • • • After being fever free for 2 days, we sent her to school today.😬 She had been energetic, perhaps a little on the subdued side, but hungry and happy. Her eyes looked a little weak. At pick-up (after her 3 hour school day), she looked REAL bad and had a low grade temp. We had no idea Flu symptoms could be so mild, NOT to be confused with exhausting and pitiful. While her flu shot did not prevent her from getting the flu, we are so thankful it kept her symptoms in check! ❀️ #couldbesomuchworse • • • • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #nicoledigipresets #darlingdaily #realparenthood #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #letthekids

She is sick for the umpteenth time this fall/winter. πŸ€’ I hate it, but the benefit should be less energy, right?! WRONG!

Happy HALF Birthday, Evie Fran! 🧁 (Long Post Alert!) #mylittletittle • • • Her preschool celebrates half birthdays. Evie desperately wanted all things Paw Patrol for this 20 minute celebration! 🐾 The funny thing is, she’s not Paw Patrol obsessed at home. None of our streaming options carry it, therefore it’s not in our show rotation. She does have 3 figurines from the Dollar Tree and, sometimes, eats frozen paw patrol shaped chicken nuggets. But it is no Shopkins, which she currently loves and adores more than anything at home! • • • When questioned about her school party theme request she said, “OH Mommy...X and Y and Z LOVE Paw Patrol!! They will laugh and think it’s so silly and fun”! Not gonna lie...it made me happy that she notices and cares about others’ preferences but it also made me sad that she didn’t want to pick her actual favorite theme. 🀷🏻‍♀️ #parentingisweird • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #darlingdaily #realparenthood #motherhoodrising #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #worldoflittles #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #letthekids

Lest you thought our crafting experiences were all sunshine and rainbows, I’ll have you know I spend a fair amount of time literally holding things together and spewing positive reinforcements. But we do it because, in the end, she is always so proud! 😊Creativity and making things can be a hard concept for some. I want her to know that “good” is relative and accepting that takes practice. πŸ– #mylittletittle #creativitytakescourage #practicemakesprogress • • • • • • • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #darlingdaily #realparenthood #motherhoodrising #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #worldoflittles #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #letthekids #preschoollife #creativechildhood

An insta-Mom’s dilemma: Do you post the pic of your child being innocently adorable in the least cute part of your yard? Or the one in the cuter part of the yard that is, clearly, scripted thus less cute of your child? 😘 This time I went with the first option, because you can not recreate the sheer glee of hollering to birds about the nest you just built for them. 🦜 #mylittletittle • • • Also an update on her #surestep SMO braces: She has been wearing them a little over a month and LOVES them. Claims she will be sad when she doesn’t have to wear them anymore. πŸ₯° We noticed improvement in her gait almost immediately and her jumping is a night-and-day difference for the better! In this picture, for example, her feet are much straighter than in past standing pictures. So far this experience has been worth all the fretting. ❀️ • • • • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #nicoledigipresets #darlingdaily #realparenthood #motherhoodrising #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #worldoflittles #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #letthekids

Instead of Gingerbread Houses we make Sugar Cone Trees! πŸŽ„ 4.5 year old Evie needed a little help spreading the icing, but strategically placed sprinkle “ornaments” by herself for about an hour! #mylittletittle • • • Materials Needed: Sugar Cones, a can of #duncanhines frosting, and #Wilton sprinkles. All of these items were Dairy and Egg Free, which made them safe for Evie to eat/touch. I have yet to find a house/cookie kit that is Evie-safe due to ingredients or cross contamination. When she’s older we’ll try our hand at an allergen friendly house from scratch but, until then, these festive trees get the job done! • • • • • • #magicofchristmas #ourholiday #ourmagicalchristmas #capturingchristmas #christmasmood #christmascheer #christmasmagic #themagicofchristmas #hollyjollychristmas #ochristmastree #falalalala #merryandbright #deckthehalls #mostwonderfultimeoftheyear #tdg_letsgetdigital #thingsiwanttoremember #childhoodunplugged #treasuringlittlememories #kidsofinstagram #motherhoodsimplified #letthembelittle #honestmotherhood #letthekids #foodallergies #foodallergymom #dairyfree #eggfree

That time we needed to run a quick errand on pajama day* and she requested to have her picture taken with this stranger’s holiday display! πŸ¦•πŸŽ„πŸ€£ #mylittletittle • • • *We have one weekday with no obligations. Sometimes she begs for it to be pajama day and I oblige. I didn’t have the energy for a wardrobe change just for a quick car ride. Seriously, we were all supposed to stay in the car. She had so much fun on our “super silly pajama car ride”! 😘 • • • • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #darlingdaily #realparenthood #motherhoodrising #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #worldoflittles #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #letthekids #christmasdecorations #pjsallday

Evie was so star struck by Santa that she would only whisper. 🀩 This is me trying desperately to hear that precious intel while staying out of the shot! πŸ”Ž Sure enough, she spent most of her time talking about a toy she’s maybe mentioned once. NOT the ones she’s been telling her parents about for a solid month! 🀦🏻‍♀️ #mylittletittle #hohoho • • • • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #nicoledigipresets #darlingdaily #realparenthood #motherhoodrising #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #worldoflittles #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #letthekids #santaclaus

Yesterday it flurried for most of the day!🌨 For 30 solid minutes she ran back and forth, scooping up snow with her little mittened hands and rubbing it on tree trunks in the name of “decorating”!

I wanted to kick this holiday season off with a more inclusive* holiday craft before my page is overrun with Christmas Trees, Ornaments, Santa, etc. This craft is extremely versatile. The “candle stick” color is limited only by your construction paper supply as is the quantity you make. Set the candles on your mantle, table, or hot glue a clothespin to the bottom for easy attachment to tree limbs. Add a paper flame as your holiday indicates and enjoy the season! πŸ•― • • • *I am not naive enough to think that by posting a picture of a candle craft that I know ANYTHING about how other holidays are celebrated. I did notice the candle as a common symbol and thought it was sweet that it could be meaningful to different people! ❀️ A request: If you have children’s book recommendations about different holiday celebrations around the world, please leave them in the comments. 🌎🌍🌏 #mylittletittle #thislittlelightofmine • • • Instructions posted in my “Crafts” highlight. • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #darlingdaily #realparenthood #motherhoodrising #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #worldoflittles #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #letthekids #preschoolcrafts #candlecraft #holidaycrafts

Teaching Evie about money has proven to be harder than I expected! πŸ’΅ I don’t know when I will learn that no part of parenting really goes as expected...but I digress. No lessons about saving, exercises in actually paying for items (her handing over the cash), or chats about working seemed to make an impact. Wouldn’t you know that our “mistake” of downloading an app with in-app purchases would resonate!! • • • She’s been doing little chores to earn quarters. The chores change, but we always set clear expectations/rewards. This day she earned 1 Quarter for every 10 sticks collected. That little thing picked up 70 sticks!! And smiled for this picture earning an additional quarter giving her the $2 she needed to wake up a Palace Pet in her app.πŸ“±Somehow we’re probably doing it ALL wrong. 🀷🏻‍♀️ But, she seems to finally understand that you don’t just HAVE money cause you want it. This seems like progress. #mylittletittle #sheworkshardforthemoney #sohardforithoney • • • • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #darlingdaily #realparenthood #motherhoodrising #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #worldoflittles #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #letthekids

I’m sure she’ll be back to being thankful for toots and such tomorrow. πŸ¦ƒ #mylittletittle #thankfulturkey • • • *Trader Joe’s is selling 2-packs of Giant Sugar Pine Cones for $3.99.

I’m still so thankful we sectioned off a corner of our unfinished basement with #ikea curtains to make a playroom 3 years ago*!

During the fitting yesterday, she was excited and enjoyed taking her new braces for a test run.

During the fitting yesterday, she was excited and enjoyed taking her new braces for a test run. Things got a little dicey as we were leaving because she thought the braces weren’t coming home with us. Nothing a lollipop couldn’t handle! Coming home and realizing the braces/shoes needed to stay on in the house brought the waterworks.πŸ’¦ She sobbed, “but I miss my sockssss”. This, though, was relatively easy to work through with cuddles and honest answers.πŸ’– MY near meltdown came when we took the braces off after that initial hour and she said, “whew...I missed being me”.πŸ’” I just rubbed her little feet and nodded. #whatdoyoudo #surestepsmo #mylittletittle

Story TimeπŸ“•: Evie got her SureStep SMO braces* today. Prior to the final fitting, she picked out a pair of pink sparkly Plae shoes (and pair of “size large” snowflake print straps to allow for complete closure over the braces). In a risky move, I ignored her requests to try on the shoes without the braces as I was afraid she would then refuse to wear the shoes WITH them. The braces fit! βœ”οΈThe shoes actually fit!βœ”οΈβœ”οΈ Today, I was victorious!!πŸ†Tomorrow’s another story as Evie was devastated to discover that she has to wear her braces and shoes in the house. 😫 She insists on taking her shoes off immediately upon entering anyone’s home. Always has. Tomorrow will be...interesting.✨ #mylittletittle #surestep #goplae #physicaltherapy • • • *You can barely see the braces peeping out of the top of her shoes. They are white with pink, green, and orange flowers! I am thankful this transition is taking place during pants/legging weather. By the time shorts weather rolls around the braces will be our new normal and, hopefully, Evie will feel comfortable strutting her stuff in them! • • • • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #darlingdaily #realparenthood #motherhoodrising #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #worldoflittles #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #rawmotherhood #letthekids

Last week, Evie became OBSESSED with drinking water out of medicine syringes and those little measuring cups after taking her meds. It was absurd but, like, whatever.🀷🏻‍♀️ Why stop a good thing, right?! Yesterday, she spent no less than 1 hour making “cupcakes” by squirting water with the syringe into the little cups. There was a fair amount of mixing too! πŸ‘©πŸ»‍πŸ³πŸ’– #mylittletittle #childrenseemagic • • • • • • • • • • • #childhoodunplugged #teammotherly #parenthood_moments #treasuringlittlememories #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #kidsofinstagram #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #thingsiwanttoremember #letthembelittle #tdg_letsgetdigital #darlingdaily #realparenthood #motherhoodrising #childhoodeveryday #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #worldoflittles #justmomlife #watchthemgrow #momcommunity #rawmotherhood #letthekids

Nothing spookier than a bowl of mystery treats to a Food Allergy Momma! The good news is, I showed Evie this picture and she said in horror, “Why am I doing that?”!! I’m not sure if she meant the free fall into a bowl of potentially dangerous treats OR if it was because she couldn’t place the location (the original backdrop was a blanket/pillow situation). Regardless, I’m glad it gave her a moment’s pause and provided another teaching moment.

Guess who’s a room parent for Evie’s preschool class again this year? Yep...this girl! Typically, I plan the crafts for the class parties. My craft criteria: 1-Cute 2-Easy with little set/clean up 3-CHEAP...because let’s be honest, preschoolers will cover any and all materials in obscene amounts of glue creating a soggy mess that often doesn't make it to the family gallery. 🀣 • • • This cute foam pumpkin craft kit came from the Dollar Tree (6 kits/$1 AND they had spider, owl, bat, and Frankenstein kits too)! Now...Evie does know her way around a glue stick, but she was able to complete all parts of this craft BY HERSELF in 4 minutes!

Speaking of Physical Therapy (see previous post), two weeks ago, during that fall KY heat wave, we had a pep talk in the waiting room about not giving up when things get hard and that it’s OK if you’re not that great at something as long as you keep trying! Evie LOVES to stop attempting a skill when it gets hard claiming she “didn’t really want to do it anyway”. πŸ€₯ • • • And that, my insta-friends, is a page straight out of her Momma’s playbook. It turns out, parenting a tiny version of myself is serving as a constant reminder of those, easy to forget, fundamentals.

Speaking of Physical Therapy (see previous post), two weeks ago, during that fall KY heat wave, we had a pep talk in the waiting room about not giving up when things get hard and that it’s OK if you’re not that great at something as long as you keep trying! Evie LOVES to stop attempting a skill when it gets hard claiming she “didn’t really want to do it anyway”. πŸ€₯ •
•
•
And that, my insta-friends, is a page straight out of her Momma’s playbook. It turns out, parenting a tiny version of myself is serving as a constant reminder of those, easy to forget, fundamentals. I mean, attitude IS just as important as ability, amirite?! πŸ‘―‍♀️ #mylittletittle •

Evie had her 1 year follow up appointment to check the status of her food allergies (via blood work NOT another patch test, thank heavens!). Spoiler Alert: She’s still allergic to dairy and egg. 🚫πŸ₯›πŸ₯šπŸš« In other news, her time in PT has given her newfound climbing confidence.

Food Allergies and Holidays often don’t go hand-in-hand. Blending in at social events is a luxury that I took for granted, pre-Evie. Now we’re the ones heating up our own food or interrogating everyone about ingredients. That’s why the Teal Pumpkin Project during Halloween is so wonderful! People that don’t have to notice don’t and those that have to can blend right in SAFELY with the crowd! πŸ’™ #mylittletittle #tealpumpkinproject • • • • • • • • • #dailyparenting #thatsdarling #enchantedchildhood #candidmotherhood #kids_unscripted #momtogs #pixel_kids #momsofig #motherhoodalive #motherhoodlens #motherhoodjourney #thisismotherhood #momentsinmotherhood #unitedmotherhood #petitejoys #tdg_letsgetdigital #nicoledigipresets #foodallergymoms #foodallergy #foodallergyawareness #themoreyouknow

When Evie’s food allergies were confirmed, I’m not going to lie, it was a low blow. Deep down I knew they were allergies, but I was hoping she was just intolerant. Our approach to the foods in question would have been exactly the same regardless, total elimination from her diet! But the word “allergy” meant that we would need to have the “food allergy conversation” over and over (and over and over...) with everyone. Family, friends, teachers, restaurant servers, well meaning neighbors, complete strangers...EVERYONE! • • • This dialogue is the hardest, most exhausting part. Some of my typical responses: ⭐️Yes, I guess it does seem like “you never used to hear of food allergies and now they’re everywhere”. ⭐️Unfortunately she can’t have goldfish crackers because they contain milk/cheese which is “dairy”. ⭐️Believe it or not, hand sanitizer does not remove allergens...gotta wash with soap and water! ⭐️I’m so sorry, but she can’t have a french fry off that plate even if it hasn’t touched the cheeseburger because...cross contamination is an issue for her. ⭐️Please tell Evie to come find us if she’s hungry! We’ll help her choose a snack.⭐️ The list goes on and on. And it makes me feel persnickety, awful, and rude (though I try to be as nice and polite as a protective Mama Llama can).πŸ˜” That’s why I am so passionate about this shirt. Basic understanding people...it makes all the difference to those of us constantly explaining. πŸ’™ • • • Be A Llama! Detect Food Allergy Danger.
