You know you’re a grown up when you’re having the good ol’ minivan 🚐 vs. SUV 🚙 debate...I would love your advice, please 💭! We’re in the market for more seating in our next vehicle, and don’t know where to start. I’d love to read your reviews on cars for families. I’m a sucker for a good review 🤷🏼♀️.
Hier bin ich aufgewachsen, genau dort und es hat sich kaum etwas verändert, immer noch dieselbe verschlafene, schöne und verträumte Ecke Lübecks, in der man sich einfach wohl und geborgen fühlt.
Ich bin glücklich und stolz darüber Lübeck meine Heimat nennen zu dürfen auch wenn ich leider mit den größten Teil meiner Kindheit nicht hier verbracht habe.
Aber ich wusste ich werde egal wann wieder kommen, und hier bin ich seit Ende 2015 lebe ich endlich wieder in meiner absoluten Lieblingsstadt❤
Und ich bin froh darüber, dass meine Kinder auch hier aufwachsen werden.
Und vor allem bin ich froh darüber, das Elsa im selben Krankenhaus zu Welt kam, wie ich vor 23 Jahren und wenn alles gut geht dann wird auch unser 2. Kleiner Krümel dort geboren und noch mit am schönsten ist, dass Elsa den selben lustigen und komischen Kauz als Kinderarzt hatte, wie ich ihn damals hatte, Wahnsinn das der noch immer praktiziert .
Die Welt ist so klein und doch so groß ❤

Mommy on the go? Okay, cool. Here’s a simple one... Breakfast trail mix:
•Raisins •Yogurt Melts
• Blueberries (bonus)
Sometimes Ace and I are both dashing, so I grab a yogurt or protein drink and I grab his breakfast trail mix. You can toss it in a ziplock bag or bowl, OR you can pour it into their car seat cup holders so they can do it themselves. Depending on your baby’s age, this is also great for helping them to develop their dexterity and motor skills. It’s simple, there’s no sloppy mess, and most picky eaters love these three in combination! Good luck mama... you got this! 😘🥣

I've been doing a lot of thinking about this lately. We all seem to be doing a lot of comparing these days- Facebook/ Instagram / Pintrest... I would love to hear your thoughts

Seit einer Woche sind wir nun schon zweifache Eltern 👨👩👦👦 Die erste Woche war sehr entspannt und ich verbringe die meiste Zeit gemütlich im Bett. Mein Mann hat jetzt erstmal ein Monat Elternzeit und hält mir komplett den Rücken frei. Es ist wichtig seinen Körper die Ruhe und Erholung zu geben die nach einer Geburt notwendig sind. Ansonsten wird hier jetzt sehr viel gekuschelt und das neue Familienmitglied kennengelernt 🤱🏼
To the mamas who wrastled their toddlers into car seats this week, to the mamas who cleaned poop out of the carpet this week 🙈💩🙋🏻♀️, to the mamas who did mountains of laundry this week, tended to sick & fussy babes this week, to the unsure mamas, to the to the #bossmoms
& the ones who choose #sahmlife
.. to the mamas who told themselves ‘I can’t’, guess what YOU DID!! I barely did, but I’m praising Him! 😂🙌🏼 GO GIRLS!! . .
& to the women who long to be mamas, He sees you. To the village of women, thank you!!! 🙏🏼 #coldcoffeeandJesus #coffeecuresandjesussaves
As a part of my self care routine I try to go to the gym at 5:30 AM atleast 3-5 times a week.
Now I’m not going to sugarcoat it getting up that early isn’t fun especially since I don’t have to do it! What I can say is everyday I do my morning workout I feel like I can seize the freakin day!
As moms our bodies go through so many changes when we have a child. I know that the “SnapBack” is always wanted , but don’t rush yourself. I have a 6 years old and I’m still a work in progress! Enjoy the journey!
I still can’t believe I’m growing a human! 🤰🏽

En mis stories hemos estado interactuando y he preguntado qué desean ver más como contenido en esta página. Ve, chequéalos y mira los resultados. Comenzamos hoy con uno de los temas más solicitados: Estilo de vida de mamá y mi pequeña. Una de nuestras típicas fotos es así como esta, media borrosa y ella moviéndose de alegría. Me gusta poder ofrecer lo mejor que tengo como mamá, poder crecer en mis cualidades y aprender en mis áreas a mejorar. He pasado por diversas etapas desde su nacimiento, todos han sido retantes en especial lactar a demanda y romper con el tabú de “tienes que taparte, eso son changerías de ella, no se va a morir por esperar a que te tapes”, etc. Vamos a compartir más sobre estos temas, si eres mamá, estas embarazada o simplemente te gustan estos temas, escribe abajo qué es algo que te gustaría que hablara. ¡Un abrazo! 💋 #sinfiltro #sintabú #madrefeliz #madreprimerizafeliz #mommybloggerpr #mommyblogger #madresdeig #historiasdemadres #mamaprimerizafeliz #fulltimemommyandwife #fulltimemommy
Happy Friday Friends! Made this OVEN BAKE APPLE OATMEAL for breakfast today. Just because I love oatmeal @bobsredmill
and had this gigantic juicy apple from @traderjoes
brought me as a surprise. Who could have guess that I was going to get excited over apples right? Well, trust me once you try this delicious apples you would also get excited. As sweetener I used @monkfruitintheraw
Playing in the dirt, climbing in rivers, balancing, running - who says kids can’t get “real” forest-like outdoors in Dubai? As soon as my wild kids start climbing the couch 🛋 I drag them out the door. I seriously love 💕 this place, spending 4 HOURS there today (they were full of energy this morning). Thanks for making it (and saving both of the Two Mum’s sanity). ~Mish #xparkjr #xparkjrdubai #runmywildchild #mydubai #tiredkidstonight #mommyblogger #podcastdubai
Stay like this forever don’t change ❤️
Was für ein Wetterumschwung. Von 25 Grad auf 13 Grad herunter. Der kleine Frechdachs ist etwas am kränkeln, die große hält sich tapfer. Heute waren die Kinder mit der Mama den Vormittag unterwegs gewesen. Bus fahren ist schon ein tolles Erlebnis. Da wir meistens nur mit der Straßenbahn fahren, ist es eine willkommene Abwechslung.
Anderes Thema :
Der Frechdachs hat sich vor einigen Tagen die pink weiße Jacke aus dem Schrank heraus genommen und meinte sofort "meine". Seiner großen Schwester ist diese zu klein und sollte eigentlich weiter verschenkt werden - aber das diese an ihren Bruder weiter vererbt wird, damit haben wir echt nicht gerechnet. Ich hatte vor einigen Tagen hier auf Instagram ein Beitrag gelesen, dass sehr viel ältere Leute anscheinend das Vorurteil haben, dass Mädchen viel Glitzer und bling bling tragen. Die Jungs dagegen dann blau und alles dunkel gehalten etc.
Für uns ist es wichtig, dass wir den Kindern nicht die Welt verschließen und ihnen soweit es geht alles ermöglichen. Und wenn es nur der Puppenwagen für den Frechdachs ist und für den Schmetterling das herum toben.
Oder eben auch die pinke Jacke!

Кажется, теперь я наконец чувствую себя по-настоящему взрослой.
Но это не точно 😜
❤️Feieraaaaabend!! ❤️ Jetzt kann endlich das Wochenende eingeläutet werden! Die erste Ferienwoche war noch ziemlich stressig, mit einigen Terminen. Leona war von Montag - Freitag bei einem Kinderkochkurs und hatte eine Menge Spaß. Der Kalender zeigt für die nächste Woche gäääähnende Leere an 😍 und ich freu mich so!!!
New blog post on a super easy (and super cheap) color sorting activity is up! The dollar store is my favorite place to come up with our own version of crafty or educational DIY activities- and this one has worked well for Lucas. It was supposed to be a scavenger hunt, but we took a step back and made it even more simple which has made it even more effective for him! All of the info you need is on the blog. Does he get them all right? Not every time, but it’s a fun way to learn as he goes. Happy sorting!
You ever get in a funk? Feel frustrated, cranky, indifferent, drained — just tired of everything, but not even really sure why? I woke up Monday feeling all this, emotions everywhere. I felt this weird frustration with life in general, like I’d hit a wall and was blocked — I was getting annoyed and angry with Kinsley and my husband over the smallest of things for no reason. I couldn’t pin point where it was coming from, which was even more frustrating.
To be honest, I think it was a combination of factors such as a needy baby, dreary weather, lack of seeing my husband much, lack of self care, but the main culprit behind this “mood,” was my hormones.
Too often, I feel like as women we forget that HORMONES AND EMOTIONS ARE REAL and they do, in fact, effect us. Up until Wednesday night this mood just took over me, so I turned to some oily friends for help and stumbled across an oil called •Northern Lights Black Spruce.• This is the description I found on it:
“It can be used to release emotional blocks and can bring about feelings of balance — it actually has the capacity to make you feel grounded and elevated all at the same time.”
Well guess what, they were right! I’ve been diffusing this oil for the past two days straight now and I was in shock at the difference in how I felt. My emotions haven’t felt like they were stuffed in a bottle about to explode, I’ve felt calm, relieved, grounded. 2.5 years of using oils and they still blow my mind.
So here’s to looking forward to a great weekend, with emotions in check! Happy Friday friends!
Watch. Soak it in. Rewatch. You’ve got this. . . .
One of the number one reasons people give up on their dreams??? "It's taking too long!"
You set out to pursue something or chase something down and you have all the momentum in the world but then it doesn't happen in that first month, or the second or the sixth. All around you people seem to have it all and do it all and accomplish it quickly. So why does everything feel so hard for you and seem to be so easy for everyone else? You start to second-guess yourself. You start to question whether or not this dream makes any sense. You start to believe the negative voice in your head that tells you all of the reasons it's not going to work. DON'T LISTEN TO THAT VOICE. Don't quit on yourself. If you feel like it's taking too long, hit the link in my bio and pump yourself up with this week's motivational video. It's not taking too long, it's taking exactly as long as it's supposed to. #Last90Days #Motivation

Let’s help keep our kids happy & healthy this flu season!
So...my kiss goes to the “well wishers”. After I posted the pictures of my teenage son and I, a “concerned friend” sent me this: “Sweetheart... I have learned that Dragan has been bullied ever since starting at his grammar school, it breaks my heart to tell you this, please for his sake ...stop posting your loving photo's etc xxx”
I replied: “Hi , thank you for your concern.
Yes, the bullying carried on from his primary school.
With the help of his school and with our love and nurture, he’s managed to shake them off.
However, we teach our son to be confident in his appearance and in who he is. We, Rhys and I, do not encourage him to hide away from bullies. He has a right to be photographed and post it, and live his personal or family life the way he wants. And so do I.
I present the way our family is, not the way the world would like to see it.
We are one very open family.
But, I thank you for your concern.” Vesna.” My husband and I have been bringing our sons up on our own for nearly 14 years; we have no family in the UK. Why do people do this? Do they think they are better parents than you. We are two adults (my husband and I). One of us, me, is very active on social media; we have a teenage son, I want to know all the tricks of the trade when it comes to social media. We, the parents, need to be very social media savvy in order to help our children; we need to be ahead of them. I posted pictures of me messing around with our son. These are family photos I decided to share with everyone. No, it doesn’t break your heart to tell me this. It is never kind to do this. If you saw my son taking drugs, or drinking, or bullying someone, or doing something dangerous and illegal, then we would really appreciate you getting in touch, but do not tell me that I am harming my son’s confidence for posting innocent family photos. I shall post as many loving photos as I like. Because they are just that; loving photos of my, MY children. #mylife #mindyourownbusiness #mindyourownfuckingbusiness #bekind #kindness #love #family #familyphotos #mumlife #momlife #dadlife #mummyblogger #mamablogger #mommyblogger #parenting #motherhood #fatherhood #mum #mom
I wanted to open up a bit about body insecurities: Growing up I was always that toothpick kid that couldn’t gain weight no matter how much I ate or what I ate. People that knew me well or seen me eat was always so surprised. Others however bullied me a lot over everything and even nothing; one of them was for being really skinny. Everyday I was reminded how skinny I was; I was told I needed to eat more, I looked like a skeleton , that I should eat a cheeseburger , that I was boney,etc. people would make comments proving that they assumed that why I didn’t eat a lot was because I don’t eat much when really I was just being polite. I had to always make sure I didn’t go to the bathroom after eating really good so people didn’t think I made myself sick. I love food too much and my body needs food so I can’t do those things. After having kids I finally gained a lot of weight; Like 65lbs! Everyone was happy because I finally looked “normal “ and so was I. In a sense I wanted to keep getting bigger because I was afraid of being that small again. After my pregnancy I gained even more and when I had Emily I gained 63lbs more. People still said I looked tiny and I was so frustrated. I have a tiny frame and small bones so how I held it confused them I guess. After having Emily I realized how big and unhealthy I really was. All that weight wasn’t good for my joints/bones. Finally I got tired of how I looked and worked my butt off to lose weight. I did it! I’m about 120lbs now. Unfortunately now people are making the skinny comments again and worried I’m going too far. I’m not even “dieting” or exercising ; now I’m just toning up with muscle routines to keep my shape. I feel a bit insecure again because of it even though I felt so good on how I look. I know how it feels to be the fat girl and the skinny girl. People think skinny people shouldn’t complain but both have To go through issues. After a certain point I was told I was fat a lot; had problems with clothes because I had a huge chest & was still tiny but was huge for it. I felt with being big people complimented me more & made me feel better; almost like lying on how I really look..(continued below)
Mommas! Self care is so important, I’ve had days where I’d come rushing in from work , head straight into the kitchen , cook , bathe the kids, help with homework and put them to bed only to realize I still have my work clothes on 😩. I decided to be intentional about my self care routine and dedicate at least 30 minutes after work to taking care of me. As you can see the kids running around and attempting to disrupt my zen failed. They ain’t taking my 30 minutes of mommy pamper time away!

Today I reminisce on how I felt at 3 months postpartum. As much as I loved my new bundle of joy I knew it was not enough if I did not first love myself. I had gained tons of weight , my hair was breaking , and it was Winter! There were days where I stayed in bed and called it a “nurse and sleep” day. I can’t believe I even sat through a full season of love and hip hop * cringes*. I pulled this picture out of the archive to remind myself of my “ Why?”. The little people who call me Mommy have been my saving grace. .
The postpartum blues did not last very long, but for those who have suffered or are suffering through postpartum depression I am sending love , prayers , and positive vibrations your way. .
I am Truly grateful for these two minis! What are you grateful for?
