I took a sick day to stay at home with my little girl today. I promised her we would decorate her pumpkins before her doctors appointment & I feel like our rare one on one time really lifted her spirits, and mine. 👩‍👧⁣ ⁣ Want to win a $25 gift card to Old Navy?

It’s no lie I am a Christmas junkie through and through. So much so, that Santa Claus village near the North Pole is actually at the top of my bucket list. I decorate almost every room in our house, put up Christmas trees in each of the kids rooms, and get so much joy shopping for friends and family all year. I also love partaking in all of the festive events leading up.... it may be my fav part of the entire season. So when I walked into @homesensecanada yesterday and saw a few aisles of Christmas decor I was so giddy!! Seeing all the beautiful pieces makes me want to change my main tree “theme”.... but I have so many sentimental ornaments that match my old theme...???? What should I do lol? . . . . . . . . . . . . #christmasdecor #christmastime #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear #yxemom #yxemoms #christmasinspo #lifegivingsquares #gowildlyandslow #shoppingcart #thesearethedays

I don’t know if this is a typical toddler thing or not, but Finn has been in a total “dada” phase for the last few weeks. He’s nice enough to me when I get him something he wants, but if he has the choice between the two of us, it’s Dada all the way. • I keep telling myself it’s just payback for the first year of his life when it was all mom, all the time. As much as it stings a little to not be the preferred parent right now, I love watching the two of them share special moments. And getting a few extra moments to myself isn’t the worst thing in the world either. 😄 . . . . #letthembelittle #runwildmychild #littleandbrave #childhoodcaptured #mothersofinstagram #ohheymama #motherhoodunplugged #lifewithlittles #lifegivingsquares #liveintentionally #petitejoys #abmhappylife #simplejoys #thehappynow #verilymoment #flashesofdelight #fatherandson

Yesterday I bought a blazer for $2, I wrapped a belt around my waist that my mama wore when she was my age (which feels like an eternal hug from her), and I got two free iced coffees. Then I had to evacuate the grocery store because my child was throwing a tantrum (which the Richter scale would probs define as a 6.) all holy moments. #lifegivingsquares #momlife #everymomentholy

@thetwoseasonsfam

A little note Ty wrote after the kids had passed out and he had a moment to think. He put into words perfectly what our life is actually like, in case you were curious and or thinking omg they are either crazy or brave...your answer may be found below ☺️: 〰️ Sometimes I think we are just killin it, mostly that feeling comes at about 7:50 and both kids are asleep and we are just chillin, which for the record never happens at our Tahoe house. Since we left, they have passed out in the bed they share within 5 minutes of brushing teeth. #scampgoldie is magic. The rest of the time, we are involved in an intricate power struggle to get our wildly social 3 yr old to refrain from doing any number of dangerous/sketchy/annoying behaviors while simultaneously trying to keep our intrepid 1 yr old from standing on the table or getting steamrolled by her brother. All the while intending to sneak in a little exercise or activity. This is when I feel like we are insane people for embarking on an adventure of this magnitude every 6 months. There is no looking back though, we pulled the trigger. Our renters are already moved in. Tickets have been bought. We’re really doing it Harry!— (sic. Finding Nemo) The key to success is organization. Running a tight ship is make or brake when everything we own is either in the camper or in the back of the truck. It can spiral out of control in the briefest of moments. 🥂 to our queen of keeping things in order, Anelise, none of this would be even remotely possible without your vision. Long story short, our time is spent between moments of pure blissful zen and downright out of patience what the hell are we doing... I know that our kiddos are only young for the blink of an eye, but man, do they challenge us! When we get a moment to finish our coffee and catch up, the challenging moments are erased in a mere millisecond and life is reset. 〰️ Life is messy and chaotic when raising small children no matter where you are in the world, no matter what your lifestyle is. It’s full of negotiations, trial and errors and meltdowns, but it’s also full to the brim with love, joy and togetherness. Just focusing on the togetherness.

🌿As long as you know who you are & what makes you happy,it doesn't matter how others see you🌿 Happy Tuesday!!!!Its been a hot minute since i posted over here...Lately i have been going through a funk,i dont know if i should blame the change of weather or my poor attitude.one thing i know for sure is bothering me is the fact that i feel obligated to only post if i have something witty or important to talk about&often times i dont have anything interesting to share.i love taking photos & sometimes i just want to share the damn photo without worrying too much about the caption....when did this simple photo sharing app become so complicated?my life is stable&boring & i am happy & not ashamed for it.but this funk ends here with this post.from now on i will post whatever or whenever my heart desires with just a quote as a caption if needed.its not ok to stress over something that's takes over so much of my energy & often leaves me grumpy for being too hard on myself.this was definitely very awkward to share,but i am giving myself all the grace & encourage you to be easy on YOU regardless of what's bothering you❤ Do you post only when you have something interesting to share or just whatever gives you joy?

@twinsane_mama

This is 15 month old Twin B, Aka Aran, aka Chewie (lovingly nicknamed by his older sister Lana, when he was just a bump!). This little guy had quite a bad case of acid reflux when he was born up until he was 8/9 months old. For that reason, we couldn’t give him much tummy time to strengthen his back and core. It’s only because of this experience that I realised how important it is for babies to go on their front. His lack of exercise at that critical time meant that it affected his posture and even his hip rotation. He’s fine and he looks normal, but he is just a little floppy at times and likes to slouch instead of keeping his backbone straight like babies usually do. Physiotherapy has been good for him and he continues to take it a couple of times a week. If you’ve got a little one that is spitting up a lot and crying or squirming after drinking milk, it’s likely that he/she has acid reflux too. Another sign is when their voice changes to sounding more hoarse and croaky. I’m usually not one to give my kids allopathic medication when I can give gentler alternative options so I avoided giving him Zantac on the Dr’s orders (FYI they just recalled it a few days ago as they found it is Cancer causing ,please look up the generic name and what it is sold under in the country you live), so I resorted to offering him homeopathy to ease him, propped him up at a slight angle when he slept and after breastfeeding, I gave him a small top up of rice-based formula (to fill him up, my body just wasn’t producing enough milk to satisfy two hungry babies) as it is a thicker consistency than regular milk and stays down better. Did your child ever struggle through acid reflux in the early months, and if so, how did you resolve it? • • • • • #fallcolors2019 #autumnalcolours #autumnalvibes #fallingintoautumn #sleepingbabyphotography #sleepingbabygirl #doodledrawing #storytellingsquares #hellofall🍂 #scenefromtheceiling #justdoodling #letthemexplore #the_sugar_jar #snaphappybritmums #justbaby #twinmum #babyphotoshoots #october🍁🍂 #twinsane_mama #thebump #motherhoodisdarling #realmom #babycenterbabies #mumof4 #lifegivingsquares

Today, I’m sharing the recipe to my simple breakfast staple! Call them what you want: egg muffins, breakfast bites, little pockets of goodness I’ve gotten in the poor habit of skipping breakfast most days because I don’t allow myself the time in the morning to a). make something and/or b). sit down and eat. These make breakfast SO easy. Ingredients: 8 eggs + 8 slices of chopped bacon + potatoes/veggies + 1 cup of cheese + salt/pepper Scramble your eggs, cook & chop your bacon, potatoes, &/or veggies and mix it in a large bowl. Add in your cup of cheese and salt/pepper to taste. Spray your muffin pan before pouring mixture into each tin 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 20 min at 350. This recipe makes 12 egg bites!

@meetmylittleloves

A few weeks ago I had a picnic lunch in the backyard with Henry and James. I was trying to get some cute photos of the boys and Henry asked if he could take my photo. I let him, thinking I would just delete them later, but then I came across this shot and realized that I wish I had more photos of me like this - just being. I was playing with my boys, having a picnic, not worrying about how my smile looked or where my hair was falling. I look happy in this photo because I WAS happy; I was in the moment, I was present. And that is exactly where and how I always want to be. I don’t like taking and/or posting photos of just me, which is why it took me a few weeks to post this. But, this photo that Henry took of his mom is yet another lesson from my toddler that I wanted to share - just BE, mamas! ❤️ ⠀⠀ What is something your little one has taught you? How do you feel about pictures of yourself? I feel more comfortable having someone in the photo with me, especially a little one that I can hold so I don’t have to think about what to do with my hands 😆🤷🏻‍♀️

It’s been a month and a half and this weekend was the first weekend Ryan had completely off. We had fun at Odin’s birthday party, played at parks, and walked down to the beach. It was the first time we had been to the beach as a family - in almost two months!! 🤪 The water was very chilly though! It was really great to relax and be together. I’m thankful Ryan has an actual thanksgiving break and winter break from school as well. Something he hasn’t ever had at his job. Anyway, right now the kids are fighting over a damn sticky hand 😑 - so gotta go break up this fight. Hope you all have a great Monday!

Tatum: Cheerful Bringer of Joy. ⁣⁣ For the past 365 days you have lived up to your name entirely. Those who know our girl know that she is the biggest ham bone that is capable of making anyone and everyone feel immense joy.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ One year ago today at 7:57pm you changed our world. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Together we grew. Together we learned. You were new to the world and I was new to this wild ride called motherhood. Its been a whole year of learning together and it won’t stop here. Seeing the world through your eyes is the most magical feeling in the world and something I will never be able to explain to anybody until they experience it themselves. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’ve learned that the saying is true; the days are long but the years are short. Time is a thief but I’ll continue soaking up every second I have with you. Thank you for changing me forever and bringing out the best in me. You make me want to be better and do better, not only as a mother but as a wife, sister, daughter, and friend. Happy birthday baby girl💜

I thought today would be a good day to do a #meetthemaker as were getting ready to pick our new rep team for the winter!💗. . So, hey! My name is Brianne and I am the woman behind this one woman shop. My husband and I just celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary yesterday and yes, he’s over a foot taller than me.🤦🏼‍♀️ We have two perfect babies, Jameson who just turned 4 and Emersyn who will be one the 24th of this month. We live in Upstate NY! I started this small business when I was 6 months pregnant with Emersyn, what started as a hobby for matching shirts for my kids & I quickly turned into something much larger, very fast! My top 3 favorite “items” to make are: 1. Birthday party packages (decor, family shirts, invites, etc.) 2. Matching family shirts for family trips! 3. Pregnancy announcements/big brother or big sister items to announce the pregnancy! Want to know something else? Just ask! I’d love to get to know you, tell me something fun or interesting about YOU! { 📸: @shannonemensphotography }

Happy Tuesday friends! It's been awhile since I shared a morning smoothie so I wanted to show you my latest. AD I made this with blackberry, mango and two scoops of @naturalfactors Protein & Greens plant-based protein. It's delicious and contains a full serving of fruits and vegetables in every scoop so it's the perfect way to start the day! A morning smoothie with protein is a filling treat and Natural Factors Proteins & Greens is versatile and blends well in so many recipes. I love trying new smoothie recipes it's so easy and fun, I typically pick 5-8 ingredients two fruits, 1-2 veggies, a plant based milk and two scoops of plant based protein, what are some of your favorite smoothie must haves? . @naturalfactorsus #FactorsFeeling #NaturalFactors #farmtosupplement

My heart has been resting on the changing of seasons. This process tends to be reoccurring for me when autumn comes around again. It’s when the bones of the earth are in full exposure and there’s clarity in the air. I feel like I can breathe again. Change is inevitable and the passing of time is without confinement. It’s heartbreaking, joyous, and arduous to venture from one season to the other, but it’s essential for our spirit. I’m not the same person I was before I knew this little boy was apart of our life. The very moment I found out I was carrying him there was an instant shift in my being. I’m also not the same person I was before he was born, nor will I be the same person along the way as he grows into who he is becoming. I’m constantly reminding myself to fully trust God in the process. This little boy is being used to shape my heart every single day, in turn as I’m being entrusted help shape him. It’s messy, and it’s brilliant. I’m just feeling really grateful this season, now more than ever, that I have not arrived and I won’t until the other side. A new day dawns. Another opportunity to be the best version of ourselves, and to do the best we can today. Then we’ll try again tomorrow. ❤️

@eliseknowles

There’s something about this age, so close to 7 and suddenly so many behavioural changes that make him seem so much older. The way he talks is different. He says things in almost a teenage manner, especially when he’s not interested in what I’m saying or asking; like the other day when I asked him to do something and he responded with “um, how about N-O”. The way he moves his body is different. He is starting to get taller, but not with more weight so he’s getting that gangly look. He shrugs his shoulders like a 14 year old sometimes and uses his hands in an “arhhhh I don’t know” 🤷🏼‍♂️ kind of way. He’s still so small to me, but with every day I’m seeing growth, maturity and development and it’s so insane to me because it really does feel like yesterday that it was just him and me, at home trying to figure out this mum and son thing together. Some days when I drop him at school and I watch him out the window running to his classroom, with his huge backpack perched on his back I cry. I cry tears of happiness because I’m so proud of him and the little man he’s growing into, but sadness is in my tears too, he’s growing up so quickly and it really hits home that each day with these babies is so precious yet so fleeting. I don’t know, maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones or maybe it’s just the fact that now as I finally feel peace in truly appreciating this role as his mother it’s all moving way too fast 😭

We moved to Rwanda with six suitcases. No container, no extra bags, no giant packing totes. Anyone else? Everything felt so unfamiliar. So chaotic. Nothing was predictable, everything was new, and I couldn’t get my bearings. You too? The concept of “family anchors” was introduced to me at some point, and has made such a difference in our home. The idea is- you identify things your family loves, things that male you feel connected and give you life- and then you make them a rhythm in your week. This looks different for every family- for us, things like watching movies, playing board games, even reading books together make the cut. For others, family walks, cooking together, road trips, eating out, swimming, trampoline time- anything can be a family anchor! What’s a life giving activity for your family, that you can turn into a weekly anchor? Or what are some that you already implement that are centering for you?

The last night in Scottsdale, we walked up to a massive southwest party complete with an amazing band, delicious food, keepsakes, and of course 🥂 The music was amazing with the mouthwatering smell of BBQ in air. I’m NOT a dancer and I typically hide during these kids of events but the energy was insane and I was so excited and grateful to be there. There were photographers everywhere documenting it all. We danced the night away. (I’ve got a TikTok video to prove it 😂 I can’t remember the last time I had THIS MUCH FUN. The 3 days prior I was staying at a luxury resort, given gifts every day, amazing meals, party’s each night, and the best, actionable trainings to help my business excel as a leader in the industry. I felt spoiled. Legit, as a coach - which is my JOB, my business - I felt so spoiled. Never in any other workplace have I experienced the feeling of being recognized, spoiled, and paid for my efforts. I’m still a teacher, but it’s very different and revolves around health, fitness and teaching others to build a home business like I have. The new teacher on the left would have never imagined she’s become a 6 figure CEO from home...but shoot I’m sure glad I went for it. *income is not guaranteed. Each coaches earnings are dependent on their efforts, diligence and skill*

Creo que los niños (hombres)tienen "mala fama". Muchas veces escucho como futuras mamás o mujeres (y hombres) sin hijos, tienen miedo de tener un hijo hombre porque son "TERRIBLES". La realidad, es que para empezar, ningún niño o niña debiera ser considerado "terrible" o ser "demonizado" (simplemente niño con mayor o menor intensidad, en proceso de maduración/crecimiento, con falta de límites por parte de sus padres etc.). . Por otro lado, sí: existen diferencias biológicas/endocrinas/fisiológicas básicas entre niños y niñas que por supuesto, hacen que los niños hombres sean más "bruscos" que las niñas. Ojo: no estoy diciendo que las niñas no pueden ser "bruscas", sino simplemente que sí existen diferencias entre géneros y que es importante comprenderlas para no "castigar" a los niños por conductas que son completamente n o r m a l e s. . He visto muchas veces (con mis hijos y como observadora frente a otros niños) como los varoncitos pueden ser etiquetados rápidamente como "los malos de la película", simplemente por ser hombres. Entiendo totalmente que hay una situacion contextual: vivimos en un país aún machista y en donde la violencia en contra de la mujer impera. . Sin embargo, es importante recordar que los niños...¡son niños! Bruno es grande y sí, a veces puede tener ciertos movimientos "imprevistos"😅, pero quienes lo conocen bien, saben que no es un niño violento, con malas intenciones o que busque lastimar a los demás. Le hemos enseñado en casa a respetar el espacio/cuerpo/vida de los demás (niñas Y niños), pero por supuesto que su testosterna le hace saltar, caer, gritar, moverse intempestuosamente etc. Ojo nuevamente: no estoy diciendo que las niñas no pueden tener estas conductas también, y que es normal. . Enfin, desde hace un tiempo quería compartirles esto. Como psicóloga, pero también como mamá: los niños hombres, detrás de su sudor, manitas sucias, voz ronca y "tamañote" son simplemente niños. Tenemos la responsabilidad de criarlos para que aprendan a respetar a los demás, pero no son adultos pequeños: están también en proceso de crecimiento🌟. . Espero comprendan este post con TODOS los matices que tiene (que no me caben en IG😅) #boymom

Motherhood is an unlearning of your old self and the forging of a completely new one. It’s rediscovering parts of your heart you didn’t know existed and learning to make space for the parts of your self that used to be the whole. . It’s a messy, chaotic, growing work of art. It changes daily, ebbing and flowing with the nap schedules and outfit changes and timeouts and prolonged bedtimes. . It is accepting that functionality and beauty — form and function, schedule and spontaneity, the old you and the new you — can co-exist and grow together. . It’s a beautiful unraveling; a black lace nursing bra covered in spit-up; curled hair and yesterday’s mascara. . A piece, but not the whole. You, but not all of you. And that’s just a definition from today. . *thanks to @azura_bay, my favorite ethical lingerie shop, for gifting me this gorgeous bra that I’ve managed to spin into the definition of motherhood itself. #InspiringSimplicity

We’ve been having so many fun fall days around here! Pumpkin painting, treat baking and bad guy hunting. Ezra calls all the blow up yard decorations “bad guys.” Our neighbor set one up and Ezra just stares out the window talking to it. Probably the cutest thing ever.

Hey BOO 🧡 Been living in this tee from @theeverco and getting ready for Halloween over here. Elle and Indie are dressing up as Elsa and Anna and Dex had a last minute switch to a Spider. No - not Spider-Man, just a spider. Which I couldn’t find so I’m trying to make it - wish me luck! I keep seeing all these amazing and creative family costumes and I am over here in full panic mode over trying to DIY one spider 🙈🤣. What are your kids being for Halloween?? #britthavenspresets

While I was cooking dinner tonight I asked if he wanted to make a treat for dessert + he hopped on the counter and went to town. While he was make these he said “Mommy we can eat these while watching Halloween Baking Chamionship tonight!” I love how much he loves holidays just as much as me. He made + named these Ghost-Mello S’mores all by himself. Proud mama moment!

Ain’t that the truth . I could never have imagined all that life would throw at me, especially over the last 17ish years You too?? . And oh Lord do I wish that I could be given just a little heads up as to when the next big thing was going to knock me on my ass. In fact, my very anxious tendencies mean that I’m forever conjuring up what I think that next big terrible thing will be. . I’m constantly living out these horrific scenarios thinking that in some bizarre way it’s preparing me?! But in reality all it’s doing is robbing me of the joy of the present . I’m working on it. Always. . Present. Being present. In the midst of both the struggle and the beauty... BE PRESENT .

Last night was our first time camping in an RV because 1 year old + pregnant mama. But I think it’s going to be our new normal for a bit because it’s 32 degrees out and I’m toasty here in bed + both boys are still snoozing at 7:30am. Double win. #jackhobie #lanzonlife
