Bueno Dias Funky Fam! I’m always so very happy and excited to share all that is Mexican and Hispanic to my little half Mexican boy. My culture and my roots are so important for me to pass onto him! I love creating clothes that honors and celebrates my heritage and where my family comes from and I hope you love it too!! #vivamexico
was completely on #breastmilk
I did try a couple of times to give him powdered milk especially when we were traveling but somehow he never liked it and that left me with no option. But I was happy since I didn't have to carry bottles as well as hot water.
It's time for him to taste the food! So, I started with mashed fruits, Dal, rice and homemade cerelac. Avoid grinding.
I introduced a new food after a gap of 2weeks. So incase something didn't suit him, I would realise. It wasn't easy to feed him, he was very selective about food and he is till date. I avoided soups or dal/rice water since it is liquid, and can easily be flushed out of the body when they do Susu and they are hungry again. Also, I did not introduced him to salt. His food only contained, turmeric, ghee, jaggery and date syrup.
Happy 6 Months!

Excited to go home and spend time with the little ones, especially this playful little girl. Its true that nothing is better than going home to family. ❤️
When I say this stuff is liquid gold I'm not kidding. My son had the worst Cradle Cap & everytime I tried to brush his hair clumps of hair would come out! I even tried special medicated shampoo that made his head so dry he would scratch it like crazy. Monat's Rejuveniqe Oil is the only thing that really helped him. I am forever grateful for this product that not only changes our lives but so many others lives 💜 #cradlecap #momsofinstagram #momlife #newmom #newbaby
For this child we have prayed. 🙏🏽💙 (for both of them) R was baptized yesterday with the support and love of family and friends, and some extra assistance from his camera-shy (AKA over photos) big brother. May God bless him, and them both, forever and ever.💙 #blessed #momentsofmusing
There was one toy that I had when I was a kid that I could play for hours. Lucia is the same way with her new #flipslide
Watching her flip to find the color and slide to match the lights reminds me so much of how dedicated I was to my favorite toy. She tried to teach @thesuperdadlife
and let's just say, he needs more practice to beat her... a lot more. If your kids love matching and memory games, you have to head to Target to get a Flipslide for them (like you need a reason to go to Target). It's pretty addicting and is a great alternative to screen time! What type of games do your older kids love?
— this smile can always light up anyone’s Monday. 😍

We’re happy you’re here and brought the proper temps with you! We’ve been waiting...
Perfect way to end the weekend.
Too early? Yep probably, but found this gem in a collection from our mini session prep and thought why not? 🎄 ...&& for shits and giggles, today is 10 weeks until Christmas Eve, Happy Monday!😘
I’ve never wanted to NOT 💩 so bad in my life as right now! Please, body, don’t fail me now!
I know, you’re thinking, what? This girl needs to 💩 like no other! BUT today is my GI doctor appointment so I just scrubbed my nether regions real hard and do NOT wanna mess it up for that poor doctor!
He’s already gonna have to wash his eyeballs off after he views it but please do NOT be extra gross down there - I mean I wanna 💩 so bad but I sure as #%^* don’t wanna have any physical evidence that I’ve ever pooped a day in life when I’ve got a doctor and nurse looking at IT!
So if you’re the praying kind, please pray that this gross, used up body sponge of mine did its job this morning and left me all sparkly down there! It’s hot as b’Jesus here in south Texas today so I might spray a little perfume too. I’ve never done that for my OB appointments but I have friends that spend a solid hour making it nice down there for their OB so why shouldn’t a 💩doctor get the same magical surprise? Ok I’ve talked myself into using a little perfume... The hubster has always been good about giving me perfume so now the time to figure out the best scent for “back there” Too bad he’s already at work and can’t help me with this important decision!
📸Shortly after this picture I got sucker-punched in the face and elbowed in the stomach, oh and then kicked in the shin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Apparently, Gunner does not like to be constrained and @zianaeliz
can’t control her body parts from flailing around 🤷🏽♀️
Who else goes through this type of torture?!🤣

Make this Monday awesome - cause why not?!?
Yes it may be the Mondayest Monday - but if your brain chooses to be positive then you WILL smile more!

So I thought it might be time for a new introduction for those of you who are newer followers. My name is Kayla, a special educator living in Southern California with my daughter Lu and husband @therealtonyd83
. Here’s five fun facts about me:
1). I grew up in a small mountain town and always dreamed of big-city living. Now that I’m older, I’d give anything to go back to small town life!
2). My favorite food is French fries and if I had to pick a last meal it would be In n Out burger.
3). I am a morning person. I love sunrise and can rarely sleep past 6, even on weekends.
4). My favorite color is blue because it makes me feel calm. Even our kitchen cabinets are blue!
5). I love a good bubble bath and have made them a frequent part of my self care. Give me overflowing bubbles, a sheet mask, and some calming essential oil and you’ve got one relaxed mama!
I created this space after having my daughter as a creative outlet for myself after feeling like I lost myself to motherhood. My hope is that it can be a place where I can encourage and empower other women- and my little girl as she gets older. The idea is that though we are all just tiny drops in this pool of life, our ripple can be pretty darn fierce if we nurture it!
Thanks for reading along! Do we have anything in common, or opposite of one another?
Our “it’s Monday?” Face • back to the grind but first let’s start fresh + clean, like this little cutie #BabyBoss
here ready to conquer the day!
Who’s ready to take on the week? Leave us a 🙋🏼♀️
OK this frigid weather calls for winter coat, hat and blankets! Hoping we can keep her out of the hospital this year. Her body doesn't like the cold! She fights the bugs and flus well now but cold air and a low muscle tone don't go well together. 😜
In our home we are big on owning our mistakes, asking for forgiveness, and seeking reconciliation. From a young age I have taught my children to apologize and ask for forgiveness and I have also taught them to always extend forgiveness. Extending forgiveness is so important for the person who has been hurt. If you make a habit of holding onto offenses and hurt, bitterness begins to creep in and slowly starts to destroy you from the inside out. I always use the measure of the cross if they are having a hard time forgiving. I try to help them see the great debt that Christ has pardoned and forgiven them of and if He can forgive us of SO much, we can certainly forgive our siblings or sometimes Mom and Dad.
I found a great template on Pinterest to help coach your kids through reconciliation! I’ll share it with you here and also link it in my profile!
“A Proper Sorry”
[look them in the eye and use a sincere voice]
1. “I’m sorry for ____”
2. “That was wrong because ____”
3. “In the future I will ____”
4. “Will you forgive me?”
I then instruct the other child to think and extend forgiveness by saying, “I forgive you.”
Like I said above, sometimes Mom and Dad are the ones asking for forgiveness. We are not exempt and I think it is imperative that we humble ourselves before our children showing them that we all make mistakes and all need forgiveness and grace.
I hope this is helpful to you! Is there something that do differently with your children? I’d love to hear your insight below!

Pumpkin Patched 🎃 Mom, Dad, Lily, and our loot from the farm. We brought our little pumpkin to a Fall festival yesterday where she got to run through the fields, ride in a wagon and see some farm animals!
AND she’s wearing the pumpkin hat and sweater Gramma knitted!!! 🤩 Fall bucket list in full swing. Now we just need a costume for her...🤷🏼♀️
We still haven’t taken our 3 year old to the zoo yet🤷♀️🙈
understands why! Make sure you’re following her for more funny parenting realities!
... and now for Mon Petit Cabas in black Suede !!
Only those who live it understand it!
Who can you forgive today? You owe it to yourself to do so. Surrender it today, and do not pick it back up. 💓💓
