UNCONDITIONAL LOVE || Giulio loves wheels! Especially those of Tractors. This tractor is made of recycled plastic btw (he loves it) @greentoysinc ♻️ . I know how much he loves and appreciates that mama is next to him playing with or even only looking at and admiring him. . Even that sometimes I think: I don’t like vehicles - go to play with your dad and I go to do what I like. I choose to stay with him to show him my love. . We all want the attention and validation of our parents! In fact, we need it - to survive and thrive! 💗 . So what is more important? His will or mine? I think it’s about finding a balance between both. However, I believe that it’s SO important to show that you are interested in what THEY LOVE - just because you love THEM! Giving them the space to do what THEY love and letting them know that we are here loving them exactly as they are! . The difference between conditional love and unconditional love is that - conditional love says: “I love you only when you do what I want or I like.” . An example of my own experience as a child is that my parents never came to see when while I was climbing or dancing as a sport - while I loved it so much and was so proud of myself that I wanted my parents to see me! I would have felt that they care about me and love me - just by them being there no matter if they like it or not. . At the other hand - unconditional love says: I love you exactly as you are! I love what you love! And your interests are my interests. . It’s our tasks to go out of their ways as much as possible and give them space to be and do whatever they love - showing them that we love and support them no matter what! 💗 . . #consciousmotherhood #consciousparenting #consciousmama #holisticmama #holisticparenting #awareparenting #gentleparenting #unconditionallove #lovestartswithyou

My sweet Emma is growing up faster than I could ever imagine, and while it makes me so happy it also completely shatters my heart. She’s the cheekiest kid I’ve ever known, and genuinely hilarious. When she was a baby she h a t e d being held, and now all she wants to do is cuddle with me and makes sure I’m always present with her. She’s the greatest blessing, but if time could just slow down the tiniest bit I would be eternally grateful 🙏🏻😭❤️

One of my greatest joys is getting to share our hikes with our son. There were so many moments yesterday that make my heart leap out of my chest, From Atlas hiked up on Patrick’s back and requesting to also hold my hand, so the three of us fumbled down the slope as if we were one, To Patrick talking to Atlas about how no animal or human should ever go without food or water, after we helped a very dry turtle of the track and gave him food and water. Sure everything takes twice as long and sometimes his need to change position, between walking, being in the pack, being carried, being on shoulders can be a little tiring but far out, it is worth every single challenge. I adore this. Haha on that note, I think we worked out yesterday that 3hrs hiking is about our max stretch at the moment, well Atlas’s max. I’d love to hear how long your kids are happy to hike for, especially toddlers. I am so keen for us to go on our first overnight hike but I also don’t want it to be our last 😂

Oh, I could just eat him up 😍 we have a very greedy boy on our hands. I thought Delilah was bad, but my goodness is this baby a booby monster. Literally tries to latch on to anything and everything, constantly, and feeds for hours at a time. I don’t mind though, he has a good latch which is a relief after Delilah. His weight and nappy output are both fine, so I know he’s getting what he needs.

Do you know what "Wabi-Sabi" is? ⛩ During my trip to Japan, I discovered this Zen Buddhist wisdom explaining that flaws are natural aspects of the human life. Instead of seeking an impossible state of perfection, it is our path to improvement and integration that really matters. 🦋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We all want and hope to be the perfect parent. Giving our children the best is a wonderful goal to set for ourselves, but the reality of life is that we are humans who face many things a day and, at some point, we inevitably end up frustrated, angry, sad... Do you feel like hiding these « negative » emotions from your children at all costs is what you should do? You're not the only one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, several studies prove that children feel everything we experience subliminally, especially what we avoid to say: our body language, facial expressions, and energy level are worth a thousand words for them. In this case, it is important to realize that no matter what you feel, it is healthy to be vulnerable and preferable to express it to your child. With a good communication dynamic, you can talk to your child about anything and trust their ability to understand what you are going through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌈 One day, a mother explained to me that her 4 years old daughter found her crying in her bedroom where she usually hides when she feels like crying. Taken by surprise, the mother proceeded to explain how she felt and what happened at work. The little girl listened, stayed silent for a while, then said, while hugging her: « you should have told me earlier mom, it's okay, we’re gonna send her a bee to spike her, so she will never hurt you again! » Since that day, the mother never hid anymore to cry. 🐝🙃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Remember 🌿 You have the right to express your emotions in front of your children, even if they are not considered "positive and happy" emotions. 🌿 Children feel everything you repress or hide 🌿 It's okay to have bad days, to struggle, to not be on top each day of the year. Talk to your child and you would be surprised by their clever points of view and unconditional support 💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With love, Sarah

🌲 I can’t believe how big Ace is now! I take pictures of him sleeping in our tent every time we camp and this year he looked so big 😭. I’m getting some real baby fever! 🌲. The second picture is the first time we took him camping at a music festival.

Your children and your garden both reflect the amount of weeding done during the growing season... And like I always say, "the best fertilizer is the gardener’s shadow”. This too can apply to raising children. #ourhomevibe . . . . . #bethechangeyouwanttosee #momswhogarden #gardeningwithkids #momgoals #playisthehighestformofresearch #parentinggoals #letthembechildren #raisingmytribe #unschoolingfamily #homeschoolmoms #homeschooledkids #unschooled #homeschoolingrocks #radicalunschooling #unschoolers #unschooling #unschoolinglife #lifelearning #kidsgarden #gentleparenting #peacefulparenting #lifelearners #thisisunschooling #kidswhogarden #vegankids #gardeningtips #unschoolersofinstagram #wildandfreechildren

I am SO excited to be representing the #doitlikeamother gang at @tribalheartsfestival in August. "Now in it’s third year, Tribal Hearts combines many elements of natural living with family life, aiming to support parents in raising a healthy, happy tribe! Like every good festival we have great live music, delicious food, camping and plenty of fun, but with the added benefit of being able to take something away of value to you and your children. With an emphasis on creativity, play and nature children are immersed in opportunities to explore and learn, express themselves and gain confidence whilst supporting all areas of development. Workshops include parenting support to enhance your relationships with your children and create peaceful homes and interactive sessions on healthy and environmentally friendly lifestyle choices." Doesn't that all sound fab? Tickets are available NOW at http://tribalheartsfestival.co.uk/ 🤩 . . . . . . . . . #familyfestival #doitlikeamotherhood #brilliantbabywearingbusiness #babywearingeducator #doitlikeamotheronholiday #parentingsupport #attachmentparenting #attachment #responsiveparenting #community #findyourvillage #ittakesavillage #kidsfestival #festivalfun #naturalparenting #gentleparenting #nojudgement #nojudgementparenting

Moms constantly strive to be perfect. This can lead you to be doing far to much!⁠ ⁠ Life seems to speed past. Between taking care of your family, making sure the house is clean, working, having a personal life, maintaining friendships, and many others, it's easy to get overwhelmed. ⁠ ⁠ You can do it all. But that doesn’t mean you should. Deep down you know you are doing too much.⁠ ⁠ Here is where you will find the validation and confirmation that YOU are doing too much, what you’ve suspected all along.⁠ ⁠ Click on the link in the bio to learn the 6 signs you are doing too much and what you can do about it.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #inspiremyinstagram #hustlewithheart #parentingwin #honestmotherhood #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodinspired #joyfulmamas #letthembekids #raisingthoserascals #worldoflittles #oureverydaymoments #inbeautyandchaos #thebloomforum #ohheymama #umh_kids #dailyparenting #mommyblog #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #uniteinmotherhood #mom_hub #mumlife #mumsofinstagram #modernmotherhood #crunchymama #naturalparenting #gentleparenting #modernmama #amomentinmotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram⁠

Both myself and T are feeling sorry for ourselves the last couple of days . I think that T has some teeth coming through again somewhere (hoping it’s not a reaction) and I had to have a tooth out yesterday 🤕 . I’ve been a bit all over the place lately and this has a knock in effect towards T and his routine. We’re going to visit family in Leicestershire this weekend and hopefully it will help clear my head so I can get us both back on track. I have just over 12 weeks until our holiday and a stone loss would be nice 🤞🏻 . . #mamaandson #slimmingworld #swuk #slimmingworldfamily #realparenting #gentleparenting #teething #toothout #slimmingworldmums #backtoplan #routine #lovethiskid #cosleeping #backtonormality #family

I sat down on the couch with a cup of coffee last night next to Ryan— no TV, no phones... we just sat and chatted and it served as an invitation to our kids. Come and sit. We’re not busy or preoccupied. We’re content and talking and here— present. • Liam came over and we started to talk... moving from film-making to the excavation of ancient burial sites. He was recalling things we’ve learned over the years... facts and stories from books, documentaries, museum visits. He recalled things that I had totally forgotten and some things that he had learned completely on his own. • He was witty and interesting and so, so smart. He was engaged and curious. We came up with a handful of questions and we poured over the answers together. • I spend all of my hours with my kids, but every once in a while an event like this happens— when I can see them as the person they’re growing into... the emerging artist, scholar, adventurer. • So much of their learning can’t be photographed. So much of their learning isn’t even tactile. It’s fluid and alive. • Never underestimate the power of a conversation. Of being available and present for your kids to wander over and show you who they are. •

In case you couldn’t tell from my recent stories- it’s “no pants season” around these parts and little River has been enjoying it fully! 😆 Oh and btw my stubborn little booger is finally officially potty trained I’d say. She’s went a full 2 weeks in undies with minimal accidents and we couldn’t be more proud 🥰 This adorable shirt is also from @theminimalistapparel Use Code Friends15 for a discount and mention our name🤗 #nopantsseason #pottytraining #sweetsummertime

One of the things I very consciously and intentionally teach in my home to my son is self love.⠀ ⠀ When he makes a mistake or accidentally makes a mess the first words out of his mouth are “That’s just okay! Accidents happen. Right Mom?!”⠀ ⠀ This is his reaction because I have very consciously changed my own inner voice so that I could change his inner voice.⠀ ⠀ Growing up I was so hard on myself and it was learned, my parents were hard on themselves too.⠀ ⠀ Perfection is one of the least loving ideals we can hold ourselves to and it causes so much unnecessary suffering.⠀ ⠀ I do this daily, witnessing my inner voice and then rewire my beliefs about being worthy - even when I’m imperfect.⠀ ⠀ I do it to allow him to feel worthy in his imperfections too.⠀ ⠀ I do it because one of the greatest predictors of success is a growth mindset.⠀ ⠀ In short a growth mindset is allowing yourself to be imperfect and learning through your “failures”. ⠀ ⠀ Seeing them as lessons (which they are) and using the lesson within that obstacle to move forward.⠀ ⠀ A fixed mindset is perfectionism which says I want to skip over all of the learning and get it 100% right the first time.⠀ ⠀ A huge part of self love is allowing yourself to fail. To be okay with looking like a failure. To be okay with other people not understanding your journey, because it’s not for them to understand.⠀ ⠀ This mindset begins in childhood.⠀ ⠀ It begins with patience in parenting - so there is space for lessons to be learned.⠀ ⠀ It begins with Mom and Dad learning to become okay with their own imperfections so the voice of love comes through when the glass of milk spills and little tears flow.⠀ ⠀ Give yourself some grace. It’s the most loving act you can do for your children because your inner voice becomes theirs.⠀ ⠀ You’re enough, imperfections and all.

💛 Did you know?...💛 Breastfeeding doesn't just benefit your baby - there are real benefits for you too mama! (besides having the ultimate sleep tool, tantrum stopper, and bond 'grower'! 😍) . . So for every year a mother breastfeeds, - her risk of developing invasive breast cancer is reduced by 6%✌..6%!! Pretty amazing right! Longer breastfeeding is also linked to a reduction in ovarian cancer 🙌...just another reminder to add to the list of your 'big whys' to keep you motivated on those more testing days 🤱💗 . . #breastfeedingboldly #siennaapparel

GOALS!!🙌🏽✨❤️ #repost @gentlepostpartum • #postpartumgoals right? Moms don't need another baby blanket or onesie or someone to come over and be entertained. They need to be in bed, with baby, and nourishing food. Not worrying about the laundry, making dinner, work, entertaining guests, etc. . Many people call the trip they take during pregnancy their "baby moon." Actually, the baby moon refers to the early postpartum time of lying in. How can you plan for your postpartum baby moon? . Taking time in bed to recover after giving birth (no matter what type of birth you had and no matter how easy or difficult it was) can have a profound positive effect on long-term healing and recovery. @onestrongmamaprenatal #netflixandababy #motherthemother #babymoon #showthisphototoyourpartnersotheyknowwhatyouwant #postpartumdoula #firsttimemom #firstfortydays #gentleparenting #breastfeeding #attachmentparenting #colostrum #milkflow #csectionrecovery #csection #honestmotherhood #wildandfreechildren #earthmama #RedefiningMotherhood #letthembelittle #pregnant #motherhoodsimplified #magicofchildhood #newbornlifestyle #prenatal #motherhood #thirdtrimester #motherhoodunplugged

fruit and food
1 hour ago
Let’s talk FRUIT & BREAKFAST . 🍎🍊🍋🍌🍉🍈🥝🥑 Recently We’ve been having a good amount of fruit for breakfast before anything else . Here why.. 1. during the morning your body is doing the heaviest detoxification and fruit increases effectiveness rather than a heavy meal. 2. It gently wakes the digestive system and metabolism up with energy. 3. Fruit is more effective at fueling you than morning coffee. 4. Fruit cleans the colon. We LOVE fruit and can never be without it!💚 For snacking we use fruit aswell . It’s healthier and Maximus loves smoothies (and I can sneak inn some immune booster tincture drops) and he won’t even know. 🥰👍🏼😂💚💚💚💚. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #unfliteredmotherhood #honestmotherhood #momlife #sahm #boymom #breastfeedingmom #ppdsurvivor #1yearpostpartum #mommylifestyle #sahmlife #toddler #cannamom #cosleeping #calimom #freespirit #womenempowerment #motherhoodcommunity #fruit #naturalmedicine #breakingthecycle #1yearold #gentleparenting #maximusluismoreno

Splashes classes (6-15 months) are the perfect way to spend time in the water with your little one, bonding, learning and having a splashtastic time! In a Splashers class we teach you how to confidently handle your child in the water and how to support them to independent swimming.

Mason has been slightly unsettled recently, typical just before a leap for him, but the last two night he has gotten tired, had his last feed and had a bit of a cry, but then he nuzzles his face under my arm and falls asleep. It is these moments I will treasure forever, one day he won’t need me to be able to fall asleep, one day he won’t need to sleep in my bed, one day he won’t need me as much as he does now. And I’m going to treasure every single moment #momblogger #mumbloggers #mummyblogger #firsttimemum #mommyblogger #mum #mummy #mom #mommy #mumclub #momclub #ftm #gentleparenting #love #cuddle #baby

Aww this goes for my little one and all the little ones I’m lucky to work with on a daily basis and have over the years 💓 it takes a village. Even if you don’t have a child or work directly with children they are our greatest observers... monkey see monkey do you are a role model if when you think you’re not. 💓 #ittakesavilliage #gentleparenting #theworld #weareallinthis #behaviormanagement #behviouralscience 💓 #raisingkids #rolemodels #empathy

Last week I did a post on I-message sentence starters. I wanted to add to it with this post on accusing language vs. assertive language. I-messages can be tricky because they can often come off as blaming and accusatory. Just because a sentence starts with "I" does not make it an assertive, non-defensive I-message. . . Assertiveness means expressing your point of view in a way that is clear and direct, while still respecting others. It's the ability to express both positive and negative ideas and feelings in an open way. You can tell the other person how you feel, as honestly as you can, while remembering to listen to what they say as well. Communicating in an assertive manner can actually work to minimize conflict while also making room for compromise. Having your needs better met while increasing the likelihood of strengthening relationships can be self-esteem boosting. . . . #wordsmatter #powerofwords #postivetalk #mindsetmatters #selfawareness #selfempowerment #selfesteem #solutionfocused #traumainformed #childdevelopment #developingthewholechild #raisingkids #parentingtips #positiveparenting #gentleparenting #consciousparenting #socialemotionallearning #studentsuccess #educator #teachers #spedteacher #schoolcounselor #schoolslp #occupationaltherapist #relationshipbuilding #communicationskills #mindfulliving #emotionalintelligence

Reflux baby tips... finding an option to rest upright. Our Ped’s said allow baby to sleep upright for 1 hour and then transfer to crib. Different moms do things differently of course. With Joel, he was happiest co-sleeping for the first few months until he could comfortably roll around in his crib. We had baby monitors of course I stopped sleeping for several months while I struggled with anxiety watching Joel sleep at night... 😩 but as we made the needed changes he did better and better and so did I! 🙌🏻🥰

I had some one contact me not so long ago when she learnt of my separation.⁣ ⁣ She said:⁣ ⁣ “I really hope you don’t mind me sending you this but I just wanted to say that I think you’re so brave to follow your dream and go it alone. ⁣ ⁣ It must have been a really scary decision but my mum left my dad when we were about your kids age and it was the best decision for everyone. We were just all so much happier apart. I think it can sometimes feel like people must be judging you but whenever I see women do it alone I’m always so bloody impressed. It takes some serious balls”.⁣ . . It was a welcome reminder that listening to my intuition was the right thing and I could choose to ignore others unhelpful comments where I’d be told things like “Try and make things work for the kids” Or “But you were so good together, maybe you are both just stressed.”⁣ ⁣ Often such feedback is given as a separation/divorce challenges your beliefs as it did indeed challenge my own. I realised that what ever beliefs I held and carried around weren’t in fact my own but the ones pressed upon me from others partly from growing up adopting other people’s values and never defining what my own were.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ But your children are going to grow up in a broken home?⁣ ⁣ But are they?⁣ ⁣ What is actually ‘broken?’ .

Kids have had a blast at the entertainment... They saw Chuckles and Captain Croc, danced and played a game... It's a bit out of their comfort zone, we're far more outdoorsy, wild and peaceful! Party's aren't really our thing... But it was nice to see how the Blue Coats made them laugh and smile and got them joining in 😍😍😍 Xxx

Am meisten mag ich es ja, wenn für mich Dinge gemacht werden, die ich selbst schon kann. 🥰👸🏻 Wenn mein Mann mir das Glas Wein bringt, wenn die Schwiegermama für mich kocht, wenn meine Kollegin mir das Mittagessen mitnimmt, wenn eine Freundin das Kind mit nach Hause bringt, ... . Es ist einfach ein so schönes Gefühl, wenn jmd an einen denkt und hilft - obwohl er nicht muss, wenn jmd für einen da ist - einfach so. Ich fühle mich dadurch wertgeschätzt und geliebt. . Und genau deswegen ziehe ich meine Tochter morgens vor dem Kiga an, bringe ihr Wasser ins Kinderzimmer, helfe ihr beim Schuhe anziehen, trage sie, wenn sie müde ist... . Einfach so. Weil ich sie wertschätze und liebe. 💖 #bedingungsloseelternschaft #verantwortung #veränderung #vertrauen #verbindung #bedingungslos #motherhoodsimplified #thinktwice #gentleparenting #slowparenting #attachmentparenting #meinmädchen #mamablogger #mamablogger_at #blogger_at #igersvienna #echteliebe #elternschaft #eltern #lebenmitkind #bindungsorientiert #bedürfnisorientiert #unerzogen #teamliebe #tochter #conciousliving #achtsamkeit #wir #kindheit

“Free solo mommy” is a game popular with the tiny human here. Not one of my favorite activities, but better than this game of “hug mommy’s next with your legs”. Apparently I’m just a human jungle gym, begging to be climbed upon. #3yearold #MomLife #ToddlerFun #MamaToddlers #GentleParenting #AttachmentParenting #ReallyReallyAttachedParenting #MotherhoodIsBeautiful #MomsOfBoys #BoyMom #ToddlerMom #Preschoolmom

Oh help! Oh no! It's a Gruffalo! 🌳 For our literacy this week we snuggled up and enjoyed listening to the story of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. We listened carefully for all the things that made him terrible 📚 After the story we had a think about our own 'terrible creatures' and all the things we would include in our pictures to make them really terrible! The children discussed lots of great ideas 💡 When they were happy with their creatures we encouraged them to write a short description. I used word banks and picture word mats to support them. We also scribe their sentences for them to copy if they would like us to.They used some brilliant vocabulary and tried really hard with their writing ✏ It's so important for children to learn to read and write in their own time with as much support and encouragement as they need. Forcing reading and writing on a child that isn't ready only teaches them to dislike (and even fear) something they may have grown to love ❤

Part of our #30dayswild has been starting to forage for food with our girls ❤️ We were delighted to find some lovely cherries on an outing yesterday! Aria absolutely loved picking them and seeing how many she could collect 😁 Can't wait for blackberry season to begin so we can stock up on them too!! 👏 What is your favourite food to forage?? Sorry for the delay of last weeks blog post, we have had so much going on and the 3rd trimester is definitely getting the better of me this week, but hoping to have it up by Friday! 🤞❤️

🙌🏼 Posted @withrepost@sensitivityproject It’s not only overt child abuse that negatively impacts later mental health and emotional wellbeing. Here is a short list of some childhood emotional experiences that can impact adult wellbeing: 1. Having your emotions dismissed, minimized, or invalidated. 2. Having your emotions ignored / being left alone when you were upset or angry. 3. Being told you were “too sensitive”. 4. Being punished or scolded for expressing emotions. 5. Being made to feel responsible for a parent’s emotions. 6. Having a caregiver take on your emotions in a way that left you without someone “stronger”. 7. Having to walk on eggshells to avoid a parent’s or sibling’s emotional reactions. 8. Growing up in a family that didn’t talk about or express emotions. _____________________________________ #parenting #parentsofig #gentleparenting #consciousparenting #kidsofig #baby #mama #dads #school #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #anxiety #depression #stress #trauma #bpd #selfcare #selfcompassion #lovingkindness #wellness #mindfulness #yoga #meditation #health #healthy #healingfromtheinsideout #selfhealers #psychology #writersofinstagram #rachelsamson

Renewing our vows allowed us to re commit our commitment to each other. Acknowledging the ups and downs, the pain and hurt and all the celebrations that have gone into our marriage is important for us to stay true to the vows we made. Marriage is not easy but it is amazing in all its messiness when it’s allowed to be. It is like a child that needs to be cared for, nurtured, fed and given attention too. We happen this serves as a mode for our children for what true love looks like. #ChrisTaylorMFT #BackToBasics #ParentingYourTeens #teencounseling #familytherapy #familytherapist #family . . . . . #parentproblems #parentinghacks #parentalk #parentingproblems #parentlife #parentingtips #parentingquote #parentingadvice #parentingcoach #parentingishard #momsofteens #parenting101 #parentsofteens #counselorlife #counselorsofinstagram #therapistlife #therapyworks #gentleparenting #dadsofinstagram #love

we are grateful for the rain, but happier that we have a sunny day —to play at the park and enjoy some time with friends. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ it’s sometimes hard to avoid screen time when we feel cooped up inside for days. we have put away the tablet for the past two days and it seems to have helped with Rory’s sleep. he fell asleep so well for his nap today. thank goodness. how are you spending your day?

Especially for parents: Do your kids ever stress you out? What are the unhealthy ways that you handle stress? Yelling? Complaining? Blaming? Drinking? Smoking? Avoiding? Playing the victim? Becoming overly controlling? Picking fights? Eating? Disappearing into your phone, computer or TV? What if the key to improving some of your children's negative behavior, that stresses you out, was simply to model your own stress management in a positive way? Instead of telling them how you want them to behave when things are not going their way, what if they saw us dealing with stress by exercising, meditating, taking a minute to take a deep breath, asking for a few minutes alone so we can get ourselves together? How do you want your children to handle stress? Can you show them? #chasethespark #findwhatservesyourfamily #homeschool #selfdirectedlearning #staycurious #naturallearning #intentionalhomeschooling #funschool #unschooling #lifeskills #poitiveparenting #conciousparenting #shafalitsabary #awakenedfamily #timein #gentleparenting #nurturingbodyandmind #wholebrainteaching #selfcare #selfcarelove #fillyourcupfirst #takecareofyourself

WAAAAAAAA TOT DE MACHT 2 II potdomme zeg, wat hangt er in de lucht?!!! Totaal losgeslagen deze twee. Geen land meer mee te bezeilen. Geen fatsoenlijk woord meer mee te wisselen. Loslopend wild hashtag freerangchildren - maar dan in real life. Pa en ma? Die kunnen de pot op. De boom in. Het dak op. En samenspannen die twee! Nou hebben wij best een redelijk grote tuin, heus waar. Met voetballen, trampoline en alle andere onzin, maar alsnog: veel en veel te klein. Deze gorillajongen hebben een jungle nodig. Of twee. Met lianen om aan te slingeren en apen om achteraan te klimmen. En in ieder geval geen buren of andere enigszins gemanierde mensen in de verre omtrek. Dan valt het misschien niet zo op. Dat het eigenlijk een soort Mowgli's zijn die met hun handen eten, op de tafel klimmen en totaal scheit aan hun vader en moeder hebben. Hopelijk komt er een fee met superkrachten langs vannacht en verandert ze weer in iets beter te handhaven apen. Of kinderen, als ze nog puf over heeft. Wij niet meer in ieder geval. Dat wordt hashtag bank zometeen. En dan niks meer. Tot morgen 👋 Xox Céline #moederschap #reallife #mybeautifulmess #niettedoen

“Mom, why do you put on makeup everyday?” I thought for a moment as it really made me rethink WHY do I “prepare” myself daily. A million thoughts and reasons streamed through my mind, but no matter how I wanted to word it, it all came down to the same reason, “I guess because it makes me feel pretty.” She thought for a few seconds and then said, “Well, you don’t need makeup to be pretty, you’re already pretty, mama! Sometimes in my dreams I look at you and you’re so beautiful it makes me cry. Because for me you’re that beautiful.” And isn’t something spectacular the way children see us? If only we could all judge ourselves through the eyes of children, I truly believe our world would see grace and compassion instead of jealousy and discontent, we’d see generosity instead judgment, and maybe, just maybe we’d see unity instead of diversity.

I have a love/hate with this moment every day as I walk into the gym. I love that Steele insists on me carrying him. I love that I’ve finally made it to the gym. I hate in this heat I gave up battling him into the stroller, and have resigned to lug him while 8 months pregnant in the Arizona summer. I love having little chats with him while we walk about what he will play once he gets into the kids academy, and what we see around us. However, it gets really tiring. Especially, after my workout when he feels twice as heavy. I’m sure you can see a cross between strain and joy on my face. I worry daily about how I will make this walk with two kids. Working out and getting out of the house is how I keep my sanity, so I’d like to keep this part of my routine somehow. How do you guys do it with two kids? Stroller? Carrier? Car seat for the baby, and drag the older one? I’m open to all options.

Knowing how you want to actually feel is one of the most potent forms of clarity that you can have and generating those feelings is how you INTENTIONALLY create your life.

💖💖💖One of the most common questions we get is how to respond to tantrums. If you’ve been following for a while you know we are all about setting the stage for success before the tantrum ever happens by making sure kids have slept, are fed, have been given attention, and are taught the skills they need to get what they need. But even in a perfect world where we do all these things, kids still have meltdowns. Meltdowns are typically a normal behaviour for kids who are learning to figure out the world. Here are some possible ways to respond when a tantrum is happening. Each family and child is different so take these as starting points but be curious as to what will work for your family, these are only ideas! I also included previous images that we’ve (@ourmamavillage)shared on here so you can have them all in one post! And finally, give yourself grace in this process! Just as your toddler is learning how to handle their big feelings you are also learning! It can be really tough to deal wth tantrums, so make sure you are kind to yourself in the process as well! . 💖What helps you in those moments of meltdown? Share below!
