Beautiful chaos is the only way to describe life with a toddler. Begging me to go down his slide, climbed on my back and then sliding off because he’s occupied with my old digital camera (which is his new fave toy). 😆

TGIF! I tell you what friends she was not the best week. There were car break downs, and tow trucks and sickness and little boys missing their daddies, and washing machines overflowing and dogs running away BUT what I am actually taking out of this week, is how many friends & family offered to help in some way or another. A kind text to check in, a phone call, a care package sent in the mail, help to put my rascals to bed, picking up me & my children & my dog and rescuing us. Sometimes you can feel all alone in these situations, but the smallest gestures made me feel loved and supported. Less drama next week though please k?! #allthewinestonight #daddyshome #sleepinformumthanks

To produce breast milk, mothers melt their own body fat. We literally dissolve parts of ourselves, starting with gluteal-femoral fat, aka our butts, and turn it into liquid to feed our babies. But breast milk is much more than food: It's potent medicine and, simultaneously, a powerful medium of communication between mothers and their babies. When a baby suckles at its mother's breast, a vacuum is created. Within that vacuum, the infant's saliva is sucked back into the mother's nipple, where receptors in her mammary gland read its signals. This "baby backwash," contains information about the baby's immune status. Everything scientists know about physiology indicates that baby spit backwash is one of the ways that breast milk adjusts its immunological composition. If the mammary gland receptors detect the presence of pathogens, they compel the mother's body to produce antibodies to fight it, and those antibodies travel through breast milk back into the baby's body, where they target the infection. At the same time that it is medicine, breast milk is a private conversation between mother and child. The messages we are sending each other are literally made of ourselves, and they tell us about what is going on in our lives at that very moment. Even before babies have any concept of time, breast milk helps them understand certain hours from other hours, night from day."There are hormones in breast milk, and they reflect the hormones in the mother's circulation. The ones that help facilitate sleep or waking up are present in your milk. And day milk is going to have a completely different hormonal milieu than night milk." Mother's milk informs babies of not just the present, but also the past. Returning to the maternal fat-melting - "You have information about your whole life span that could be in your milk. “Breast milk is telling the baby about the world its mother has lived in." Beautiful words by @newearth.mama and so close to my heart is this journey

😍👏🏻OMG!! Im so happy for my friend Jenni!!🎉🎉She is COMPLETELY student loan FREE because she took a chance!! . "AHHHHH I just paid off my Student Loan Debt!!! It's gone!! No more payments ever!!!😭 . I was running late today dropping the boys off at school, LIKE USUAL, so I skipped the gym this morning and came home to Pay Bills! . Got to my Student Loan and realized after this payment it's completely PAID OFF!! You guys I never thought I'd ever get that thing down to ZERO! I mean research has shown the average bachelor's degree holder takes 21 years to pay off his or her loans. 😳 That is IF they pay on it! . I've been making double, triple and quadruple payments each month all because It Works has given me the ability to do so. I cant help but shout it out to the whole world and think about all the GOOD this money can go to now!!” . All I have to say is... WHY HAVEN'T YOU JOINED ME YET?💗 . Getting out of debt feels so so good!!!

* 最近、私が何か失敗したり怒ったりしてると次男が「おかあさん、大丈夫よー」って言うようになった。 そういえば長男もこのくらいの頃、一時期「大丈夫よー、おかあさんも大丈夫し、さくちゃんも大丈夫し、おとうさんも大丈夫し、みーんな大丈夫」って言うのが口癖だったなぁ。 * 兄弟って不思議ね。 * * * * * * * #癒し #brothers #siblinghoodlove #children_jp #IGersJP #indies_gram #as_archive #reco_ig #ray_moment #our_everyday_moments #jj_memories #pics_jp #whim_fluffy #the_sugar_jar #my_magical_moments #dearestviewfinder #theartofchildhood #letthemexplore #thegallerycollective #cameramama #THEHUB_KIDS

Her favorite colour is red, she talks about it every day. My friend is an incredible Baker, so when I returned home from school with this cupcake you can imagine the squeals of delight ❤️ . . p.s she only ate a piece of the icing and left the rest, her love for red definitely outweighs her love for cakes. (Naturally I ate it to help her out!) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #magicofchildhood #littleandbrave #wildandbravelittles #littlepiecesofchildhood #parenthood_moments #thehonestlens #theheartcaptured #honestlyparents #mom_hub #cameramama #kidsforreal #simplychildren #enchantedchildhood #treasuringlittlememories #celebrate_childhood #candidchildhood #childofig #childhoodunplugged #ourcandidlife #our_everyday_moments #thedocumentarymovement #let_there_be_delight #my_magical_moments #thesincerestoryteller #thesugarjar

Gestern Nachmittag haben wir an einem Program namens „treffen mit Emma“ von der Kita teilgenommen. Ich finde die Idee dahinter außerhalb der Kita Veranstaltungen zu organisieren wirklich super! Allerdings habe ich mir darunter etwas anderes vorgestellt 🙈 Emma ist ein Therapier Hund und ich dachte das die Kinder mit Emma zusammen spielen, stattdessen war sie die meiste Zeit einfach nur da ... das hatte zur Folge das Leon sich auf das eigentliche Programm gar nicht konzentrieren konnte 🙄 die Aufgabe einen Umriss von mir und Leon auf die Tapete zu malen und sie zu gestalten hat leider nur lückenhaft funktioniert... denn mein süßer Leon ist nur der Emma hinterher gelaufen und beim Spiel als wir alle im Kreis saßen und versucht haben das Leckerli schnell von einer Person zur nächsten zu geben, damit Emma das nicht bekommt ... naja das hat Leon wohl doof gefunden 😂 denn jedes Mal wenn Leon an der Reihe war, sagt er „Emma essen!“ und gab ihr das Leckerchen 😂 . . . #mom #mother #mummy #baby #babyboy #outside #mom_hub #momtogs #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #proudmom #proudmommy #igbaby #simplychildren #autumn #momtobe #mommytobe #boymom #mama #mamablogger #momblogger #mybaby #mylove #loveu #justbaby #lebenmitkindern

B i r t h d a y🎈- This little guy turns {Two} today it was just yesterday I was putting a similar post about him turning one... time definitely flies. We’ve enjoyed every minute with this little clown. A small boy so full of life, such a character that tends to both drive his Daddy and I crazy while making our hearts burst with so much love for him, we just can’t stay angry at the cutest little faces he pulls when we send him to the naughty chair lol oh parenthood is such hard work but watching your children flourish is beyond describable. Happy Birthday little man we cant wait to see what you have in stall for us this year! 😅
