I’m amazed at how much interest Scarlett shows in reading at such a young age. We started reading Dr. Seuss at night in preparation for our upcoming trip to @universalorlando + she’s been loving “Green Eggs & Ham”! Every time I say “I do not like green eggs + ham,” she says “I like it!” 🤣 #readtoyourkids #watchthemgrow #drsuess

This weekend really tested me as a mother. You hit your highest fever to date, my insides were freaking out but I knew I needed to remain strong for you and think about what was best for you. By instinct I just knew what to do and knew how to make decisions based on what was best for you. In the beginning of your life I didn’t feel so strong but seeing how I reacted in a high stressful situation made me really proud of how far I’ve come. Your Teta Sonia called me the next day and told me that I have such a strong motherly instinct and that I was a great mother. This was the best compliment to get because she is someone I have always looked up to as a great mother. Little one I am glad I am there to protect you. 👩‍👦 . . . . #momsofinstagram #babiesofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #motherhoodrising #letthembelittle #momitforward #ig_motherhood #littleandbrave #magicofchildhood #thehappynow #mytinymoments #littlefierceones #mynameismama #acupofmotherhood #dailyparenting #storytellingmama #motherhoodinspired #igmotherhood #parenthood_unveiled #lifeasmama #joyfulmamas #runwildmychild #watchthemgrow #momlifeisthebestlife #memoirsofmotherhood #beingamom #abellukasaoud #halifaxnoisekids

I once heard depression described as “not feeling like the sky is always dark and gloomy, but feeling like there’s no sky there at all.” . . It’s really easy for me to hide what I’m feeling when I walk through depression. It’s easy for me to smile, have good days and on the outside it looks like everything is okay. . . The truth is that I’m really struggling. Mentally I’m having a very hard time, and it’s not always easy to admit that or be open about that, as much as I try to be an advocate for those also struggling. But right now, I’m not okay. . . I don’t say this for sympathy, but for those that don’t understand the need to be sympathetic to those around them. You really don’t know what someone else is struggling with despite how happy they look on the outside. You don’t know the demons and battles they’re fighting in their head. . . “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.”

This year I knew I wanted (NO!), needed things to change. I'm in this period in my life where I'm refusing to settle for the life I am given. A lot of the times, I've let other people who really mean well, limit my options and determine my destiny. As a result, I used to tell myself that I wasn't good enough. It's sad but it's true. I know God has a plan for me far beyond my wildest dream, so I'm surrendering myself to His will, which involves being extremely vulnerable and that scares me to death! But I'm not the first and I won't be the last. I just hope you're brave enough to step into your destiny, no matter how scary it is. #enjoytheprocess

We had a lovely busy and noisy class of baby massage this morning. Lots of babies finding their voices 😂 Thanks for joining us on such a snowy morning everyone! Don't forget this Sunday's combined Meditation for Mums/Baby Massage for Dads workshop. There's still a couple of spaces of you're interested. #seedsoflovebabymassage #watchthemgrow #babymassage #babyyoga #sensoryplay #hazlemere #bucksmums #bucksbabies

Did you know tomorrow is National Compliment Day? I had no idea until it popped on my calendar today. Compliments just make our hearts warm, don't they? When you tell someone you love their heart or you love the way their hair looks today, it just makes their day doesn't it? They smile and express their true gratitude. ⠀ . ⠀ Those compliments are great but the compliment that I receive when someone tells me that I captured their story perfectly in a photo is one of the greatest compliments I can receive. Thank you to each one of you who pay me the compliment of allowing me to take your picture and show me how much you love them. It truly touches my heart. . ⠀ I encourage each of you to give compliments freely tomorrow and celebrate National Compliment Day. ⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ #nationalcomplimentday ⠀ #authenticlove ⠀ #familyvibes ⠀ #milestonesession ⠀ #familyportraitphotographer ⠀ #cakesmashsession ⠀ #familysession ⠀ #familyphotoshoot ⠀ #prettypresets ⠀ #familyphotographers ⠀ #motherhoodphotography #thehonestcapture ⠀ #littlepiecesofchildhood ⠀ #familysessions ⠀ #thenarrativesociety ⠀ #thefamilycollective ⠀ #lethembelittle ⠀ #watchthemgrow ⠀ #momentsinmotherhood ⠀ #snapgrowlove ⠀ #thelifestylecollection ⠀ #thesnapsociety ⠀ #darlingmoments ⠀ #myfamilylife ⠀ #lifewithchildren ⠀ #kingwoodphotographer ⠀ #thewoodlandsphotographer ⠀ #houstonphotographers ⠀ #houstonfamilyphotographer ⠀ #newcaneyphotographer ⠀

❤️Last nights date night was a success. The kids were so excited. We kept it simple but had a blast with them. Hoping to make this a habit monthly. Next month I’ll get Johann and Evie will go on her first date with daddy. • Making an effort to spend time with each of them is important to us. What are your favorite ways to show your kids how much you care? • • We are praying for our kids hearts and we want to reach their hearts with love. • Life gets busy but I never want them to feel like they weren’t important enough to us. They are my why. What drives me every day to find freedom. All the sweat and hard work. Our hustle in life . We do it all for them though sometimes it may be hard for them to understand I know that these crazy days will pay off one day. And they will one day see and understand. For now we will make every effort to love and care for them as best we know how and make time for these sweet moments with them. #thisisus

Anyone else got a threeager on their hands? Three has been the most wonderful and most challenging age for me so far. My three year old has the most amazing imagination and is acquiring skills at lightening speed, but oh my gosh, the level of sass is legitimately astonishing sometimes. Lately his favorite past time is correcting me when I refer to his bicycle as a bike, “Actually, it’s a motorcycle.” Ok, kid. What’s the funniest thing your kid has told you lately? 😂 #funnyquotes #parentingquotes #woodentoys #letthembelittle #homeschool #homeeducation #woodisgood #personalizednamepuzzles #woodennumbers #woodenalphabet #abcset #play #montessori #naturallearning #homeschoolinspo #loveoflearning #wildandfreechildren #alphabet #handmade #madeinmichigan #joyfulmamas #candidchildhood #lovelysquares #unitedinmotherhood #watchthemgrow #playtolearn #flashcards #feltballs #flashcards

Het kost me op sommige dagen zoveel energie. Een foto als deze lijkt perfect, maar ik werd chagrijnig en warm op de achtergrond terwijl Maisie huilde en me kneep. "Ah, toe nou Mees... Gewoon ff 1 foto" Soms nemen de emoties de overhand. Op andere dagen ben ik een superheld, een powervrouw, een goed voorbeeld. Maar man man, wat kan ik het verknoeien. Het is niet erg, het is menselijk. Dus eigenlijk zijn deze dagen ook goed voor ze om te zien. De dagen waarop ik het verlies. Morgen een nieuwe. Adem in... Adem uit. . .

⚠️ bragging zone ⚠️ first grade. ah...because of how much reese just loves school 🙄 i made a deal with her the very first week of school that if she got a 💯 on her test (specifically her spelling/reading words) for the week i would take her to @target to pick out something she wanted (within reason, obv). now you guys have to understand... she’s very smart and does amazing in school and she never gets in trouble! in fact, if you ask any one of the teachers, staff, friends etc they would all tell you how kind she is or that she’s always trying to help. 🧡 so this deal wasn’t to bribe her to be “good” but to just be excited for school! anyway, i couldn’t tell you how many weeks we are into the school year now, however i do know that she has gotten 💯 on every test every week...and that she pretty much owns every baby dolls target sells 🤷🏻‍♀️ how crazy will it be if she can go ALL year? #smartypants #proudmama #empoweringwomen

Play is a vital part of how children learn. Play allows children to use their creativity and develop imagination and physical and emotional strength. Play allows children to interact and engage in the world around them.

There are times I catch a glimpse of myself in her...bottom lip, broad nose, long boney fingers. But for the most part I am absent. Her silky hair denies the history of the women who came before her. Her skin a fairer version of my own. And then there is the truth. That all of this will make life easier to navigate. She may never be teenage me who likes boys who do not like brown girls. Or me who bleaches her hair to dry straw. Or me who took care to line inside the lips to make them appear smaller. I hope this for her. That she will skip the hard part....that she will never feel the weight of denying her own reflection...that she will love self first and all else second. . . . . . . #smallandmighty #modernmama #realparenthood #raisingmytribe #motherhoodrising #raisingstronggirls #girlmom #motherhoodintheraw #motherhoodunplugged #empoweringwomen #motherofdaughters #strongwomen #motherhood #wildandfreechildren #wholeheartedliving

Wont eat anything i offer her for breakfast lunch or dinner, but will eat every bit of fluff, plastic & dirt that she finds on the floor 🤷🏻‍♀️ #why ? I can see her little eyes scanning the floor 🙄. Thanks for all your suggestions today to try and help me get miss fuss pot to eat 😣. I try to play the whole "food before 1 just for fun" card in my head, but i cant help feeling frustrated that she won't eat. Lucky she is naturally nice and chunky 🍗

Here’s a fun & easy activity to try-play dough writing! Directions: Flatten & smooth out a piece of dough & then write! We gave the kiddos lollipop sticks & straws this time around, but there’s a million possibilities on what to use as “writing utensils”. (Be sure to share what you end up using.) Every kiddo was working on something different. The little ones were making various lines & dots (great pre-writing skills!) & the preschoolers were drawing shapes & writing numbers & letters. You can have your own kids copy from an example when you give it a try...or maybe you dot the letter or number & then they trace it! Maybe it is sight word practice or word building time. Lots of wiggle room to make this activity your own. Oh...the cool thing...once you’re done writing on one side of the play dough, flip it over for a perfectly smooth writing surface. After using both sides, roll it into a ball, & then flatten once again . . . . #heartmadedough #sharetheeverymom #finemotorskills #toddlerhood #preschool #ECE #homeschool #homeschoolmom #montessori #montessoriathome #preschoolactivities #childhoodunplugged #mytinymoments #thehappynow #stopdropandmom #acupofmotherhood #motherhoodlens #watchthemgrow #simplymamahood #lovingtheordinarymoments #littlemomentsofhappiness #documentyourdays #mamasgotthis

Another cold day and a small one that’s sniffing every few seconds, so it’s a day indoors for us! . I used to feel a bit uneasy getting paints out and having a carpet (the blue stains from the past still haunt me), but since we’ve brought the tuff spot back it’s made it a way more worry free time! Anyone else swear by their tuff spot? I don’t know where we’d be without ours now! . . . #childhoodunplugged #homeschool #watchthemgrow #mytinymoments #unschooling #unschoolinglife #motherhoodrising #letthembelittle #letthemplay #motherhoodthroughinstagram #raisingmytribe #playroom #playroomdecor #playroomorganization #playroomideas #playtime #purposefilledplay #handsonactivities #playathome #creativeplay #learningthroughplay #learningthroughart #finemotorskills #invitationtocreate #invitationtoplay #invitationtopaint #creativekids #kidsactivities #kidscrafts #playmatters

Day 639: I can't recall the last time we went to a beach together, probably before BBK knows how to walk. This day was an exciting day. Mama suffered significant tension headache, and was thinking to cancel this dating. Thanks god he reminded me the importance of quality time with BBK. With my 'suck up' of the pain at the back of my head and indosed 2 nurofen tablets, I went and experienced a sandy beach day with her. It was a memorable time together. She loves sand, digging, piling, rolling. My little sweet heart, you always surprise mama randomly and that's what I love about you.

🌸 Dearest new mama- You are sore and leaky and more tired than you could have ever imagined. Everything is soaked in breast milk and tears. Everything hurts. Your body has literally stretched to its breaking point, or perhaps was cut open to make space for the miracle of life. Your heart aches with a love so huge it feels as though going to break you in half and sometimes you can’t breathe because it all feels too big. They told you about the waves of birth but no one told you about the intense waves of postpartum- the euphoria and joy that lifts you up, and the heavy weight that drops you suddenly and leaves you sobbing into receiving blankets. You look back across the sea and the journey you’ve made- and in the distance you see the maiden you once were. So much has changed in so little time and you wonder if you’ll ever find your way back to that self. You wouldn’t change this love for the world, but something inside you aches for familiar ground and the woman you once were. This is all so new and raw. But you will find your way, sweet mama. You have not left yourself behind, you’ve simply grown new wings. The maiden you with her carefree ways and wild spirit is still inside you, and always will be. Follow the compass of your heart. Allow the tears to fall. You will find your way, and your self will be waiting for you with open arms when you do. 💓 .

That's right sleep tight little one!! We're having a quiet snoozy morning getting over the effects of Blue Tuesday (it is a thing!) and the impact of the full moon 🌝 Two nights of broken sleep, my little trooper (Ettie) full of cold and a bout of separation anxiety from this one and we're all done in!! 😴 But as they say Wednesday is hump day so just one big heave to go and we're sailing into the weekend 🐪... Not that 'weekend' actually means anything with a toddler and a baby who like to late night party all week 🎉 but the positive attitude helps 😉 #happyhumpday #snoozymornings #mylittlehunk

Frechdachs ❤️ Manchmal gibt es Momente im Leben, wo man einfach nur weinen, schreien und in völliger Wut ausbrechen möchte. Wo für einen selbst die ganze große Welt zusammenbricht und man alles blöd findet. Und dann kommt plötzlich deine kleine Patschehand und du weißt genau, in welchem Moment du was sagen musst um Mama & Papa zum Lächeln zu bringen. Du sagst uns wie sehr du uns lieb hast, zeigst uns deine kleinen Herzen mit deinen Händen, manchmal lächelst du einfach nur und schon ist die Welt viel weniger doof.

||Sleep|| What’s in your diffuser tonight? Because of the chemical properties (like Linalool) found in certain essential oils, they can be useful in promoting an sleep. Most people probably think of lavender as a great oil for sleep, but there are lots of other options. I’ve listed some below.

||Sleep|| What’s in your diffuser tonight? Because of the chemical properties (like Linalool) found in certain essential oils, they can be useful in promoting an sleep. Most people probably think of lavender as a great oil for sleep, but there are lots of other options. I’ve listed some below.

Almost 8 months of getting to know you my little love. Things I don’t want to forget are the way you scrunch up your nose when you think something’s super funny, those amazing giggles, the way you drop your bottom lip before your going to cry, the way your eyes smile before you actually do, your first word was Dadda, the way you light up when your Big Sister comes into the room, how sensitive you are to everyone’s emotions, how content you are and your will to try and stand before you crawl. Now time can stand still...

This arvo he was sitting at the dining table and his sister was trying to snatch and also sit on the same chair he was on. Naturally the bickering begins and I have to keep intervening otherwise they will kill eachother - and then he busts one out that I couldn’t help but laugh about “get out of my personal space”. Like where the heck did you learn that from? Of course I asked him immediately who taught you that and his response was “I taught myself”. I must say these moments sure make motherhood interesting during those hair pulling moments. #shitkidssay

I was chuffed my dad thought to pick up his camera and snap me with my boys this week. 📸 . Cause no one thinks to do that for you when you are a mum. (I’m looking at you Mr Little Leather 👀) . When we got home I looked at it and though gawwd can’t put that on Social media. My dodgy Kmart T-shirt no makeup face and a hat squashed on my post swimming pool mop of hair. 😱 . Then I looked again and saw my beautiful boys hoeing into their ice cream. Sam sitting on my knee knowing if chocolate drips it isn’t going to bother me, cause let’s face it someone’s always grabbing you with grubby hands 🤷🏼‍♀️ #mumlife . One day they might look at this photo and remember the little adventure we had to the boat park, the scooter races they had with each other. And how their grandparents whipped out a box of ice creams from a cool bag to share just at the right moment when there was 😭 from grazed knees. . There’s a pretty good chance they’ll say wow look how young mum looks there. 🙈 #ageingbytheday #theresnotenoughskincare to save me from the ravages of being a mum to these two ratbags 😂 . BUT I hope they also see, happy, relaxed me that cared more for them and a impromptu afternoon of fun than drippy ice creams on best outfits. . That licked their sticky fingers to try and save the melting ice cream volcanos they couldn’t eat quick enough.... 😋 And loved them more than they could even imagine 💕

Just... Can't.... Reach.... It... Nog even doorgroeien lekker ding. Maar niet te snel hoor! Mama beseft zich de laatste dagen ineens x100 hoe snel het gaat en hoe je deze tijd achter je laat. Nooit meer terug krijgt. Gone. Dramatisch he! Moet soms even. It's the only drama i tolerate in my life #mellow ♥️🧘‍♀️

It took us two days but we finished our cake today. 🎂 Grayson has been watching a lot of baking shows on TV and was itching to bake which is something I’m actually really good at. So I jumped at the chance (hence the matching aprons). He was so particular about everything and learned how important it is to follow a recipe and clean as you go. We broke a few rules and it took twice as long as if I had done it myself, but he’s so proud and man, it sure is tasty! #bakingwithlove #bakingwithkids #mistergraysonkeith #babviolet

Day one of winter holiday adventures in China Winter break in China is typically somewhere around mid-January to middle or end of February. It changes every year because the Lunar New year changes every year. We left our home Taizhou, just a few days after turning in final grades for our university students. This way we can beat the holiday travel rush since many primary students are finishing up finals for the fall term. They start having finals in grade 3. We hired a driver and car to take us from Taizhou to Wuxi. It is not very expensive when you consider there are 5 of us and factor in travel time and cost with switching taxis to bus or train stations. We arrived at the general area of our AirBnB. Our friend had booked it so we needed to wait for her to arrive. While we waited we found a cute little coffee shop. It had the cutest coffee cup, and much to the happiness of my children they even had got chocolate. A coffee shop and one that has hot chocolate is fairly rare unless you are in the mega cities like Shanghai. They also had some pottery art on exhibit in the coffee shop, I think from a local artist (check out the last couple pictures for the pottery art). My husband got a call right as we arrived that there were some issues with the transfer of of grades to the Chinese teacher who enters them into the university grading system. The university assigns a teacher to help us with some class things and living arrangements who both can speak English. Unfortunately there was so issue with some grades not being entered into the system so my husband had to spend the first half of our vacation helping students not to worry and he would try to fix the situation and talking with the teacher to correct the issue in the computer. Thankfully he had decided to bring his computer with him and had all the information for the grades.
