In love with the newest Forest backpack. Redesigned, light and gorgeous 🌑
Today I have been treasure hunting! Lorenzo has hid one of his shoes and I can't find it anywhere... What I did find was: a bottle of nailpolish remover in his ballpit, a Tupperware container in the washing machine, a bag of quinoa in his bedroom, my bra in the bathtub and a red onion in the cupboard!! 😂 I am pretty sure I will find more things hidden if I keep looking 🙈Can anyone relate? 😂😂
Hubby picked up some vegetarian sushi the other day. I was needing something different than the usual. @hyvee
made it fresh for him while he shopped. It was so good sprinkled with some soy sauce. Even the boys wanted a taste! 😍
Just need to brag on this little slice of heaven for a minute. If you haven’t been to @paynes_restaurant
, you’re missing out. Menus inserted in old books, unique lighting, adorable little outside nooks to dine in, and a beautiful inside... garden beds out front, and delicious menu options (huge portions!). This place gets 10/10 ❤️ Mason said the soup was the “best food ever”... and the staff was so kind.
The woman seated next to us described it as “serendipitous”. Thank you for the wonderful lunch date! We will be back soon!
When my son decides he’s too old to twin with me it’ll Be a sad sad day😂 I love our matching @vans
Iconic 2.0 bags. I don’t want this to end!
⭐️How many of your guys be twinning with your little ones? Tag your favourite companies that do mummy and baby matching clothes! I need to buy all the stock and take all the pictures before my son can disagree! 😂😂😂
Another day, another guitar. Someone (not me) had a meltdown at the station today because the train guard wouldn’t share her tennis racket shaped paddle (for train signalling) with Otis so that he could air guitar on it. 90% of his day is spent playing a real guitar, pretending to play a guitar on an inanimate object, demanding we play him the guitar (I can’t play the guitar), or screaming because no one is playing a guitar or there are no guitars, or fake guitars to be seen. I’m semi regretting ever showing him one. He better turn out to be bloody Hendrix! Anyone else’s kids have an OBSESSION like this?! 🎸 #guitarobsession #toddlerguitar #childprodigy #fenderstratocaster
A mother's Love
Literally made me tear. My older sister has sacrificed so much and did the hardest thing a mother can do...having to leave her daughter with us in order to provide a better living for her two kids. God bless me with a well rounded and caring united family. This video brings me so much joy and pure happiness in my heart. Happy early mother’s day to my “Two” moms (my older sis mothered my ass also 😩😅) I love you! (My nephew cries when he’s overly excited and is around others who cry like his mother did....he missed his sister so much as well like his mom did y’all...clearly they all hug at the end indicating unity) 🙇♀️🙇♀️ Cc @sheiladucasse

I remember my first few months with this girl. They were rough to say the least.
Lots of feeling lost, helpless, and just feeling totally overwhelmed. .
I cried into my pillow at least 2-3 times a week, maybe more? I don't really remember, it was all a blur.
I eventually came out of this postpartum fog around 7-8 months after sheet was born and I started to feel more like me again.
But I will never forget those first months. They were hard and they were beautiful. I was a new mama, I loved that baby girl more than anything, I just could NOT get out of that fog.
What I'm trying to get at here is that feeling "not normal" is ok, especially after a baby. Maybe you need to reach out for more help, maybe you don't, we all take a different path.
BUT, let me be totally clear here, you do NOT need to be the woman you were before you had a baby, ever again. You are a mom now, and that will forever change who you are physically, mentally, and emotionally.
So when I see women striving to get their bodies back so soon after birth, it makes me sad. Yes, let physical fitness and health be a part of your journey but . . .damnit , you just created LIFE!
Give yourself a little time. Start nourishing your body with whole foods and start sleeping more instead of trying to fit in a workout.
Most importantly though, trust the process, your journey is YOURS don't compare it to mama X or mama Y. Do you and you will get to where you need to be.
You. Guys. Heads up!
Some of the Premium Starter Kits are on sale. This almost never happens and it's a killer deal. Anybody who acts on this sale will also get $20 back from me on top of it. That's $124, what?

Tersentak dengan soalan Ameer masa nak ke surau Subang Airport tadi. "Mommy, is this your airport house? It's yours?" Though it may sound funny but that shows how frequent they kept sending/fetching me to/from the airport. Sampai dalam kepala anak2, airport tu macam Mommy's second home dah. 😣😣

She is a runner. She didn’t get that from me 😀
It monsooned all night (and still is) and we were up all night with Olivia because she had a stomach virus. 😫😫 I’m now spending the day washing sheets and towels, disinfecting all the things, praying that nobody else gets sick, and trying to keep Olivia from running all around contaminating everything because, fortunately, she’s feeling better. After just four hours of sleep I could sure use a coffee! 😴 Anybody want to charter a boat and venture out to grab one for me? #AllTheRain
But seriously, though, when it is going to stop?!
11 months old! Нашего маленького непоседу удается поймать в кадр только тщательно зафиксировав 🙈😅 Спасибо Богу за нашу кроху☺😍
Ever since I was a little girl, I have LOVED interior design and home decor. I remember going to the wallpaper store with my mom and looking at the sample books for hours. And when I would play dolls, the entire time was spent arranging and rearranging my dollhouses. And then when I got a little older, I would sneak into the homes being built near us and walk through and look at the different floor plans. 🤫🙈 It’s one of my passions. I love seeing a space and imagining how I can make that space into a home. It just makes my heart happy! And now that I’m a mom and we own our home, I get to do whatever my imagination desires! Haha!! Unless it’s too crazy 🤪 anyway, In the coming days, weeks, and years, I hope to be able to share this passion with you! And maybe, inspire some along the way. 💗
“This winter, a Facebook friend posted a screenshot of their battery percentage use, found in the settings of their iPhone. This friend was mortified and concerned at how much of their percentage (and time) was being devoted to Facebook. I can’t remember precisely, but I want to say their percentage was around 15%.” Read more about @megnordmann

I am finally giving myself permission to explore and express my creativity.
I spent most of my life pouring my energy externally, trying to please others, trying to fit in. It allowed for little to no time to explore my own true passions and calling. .
When I did have time I would be extremely hard on myself with negative thoughts, telling myself I am not good enough, deprived of talent, I would compare myself to others and think I would never be as good as them so why even start ? .
Well, we are all full of talents and gifts, we just need to give ourselves the time to find them out. I started making it a priority to spend more of my energy internally, journaling, meditating, painting and exploring what makes me feel alive and in alignment with who I am. I also learnt that practice is key, so if you don't allow yourself to practice how can you become good at anything. .
We all have to start somewhere. So here is me, starting to explore watercolor painting. Maybe you like it maybe you don't, but I am doing this for me and I really like it. .

Do you think children belong on their parents’ accounts? How much is too much? *
The reason I asked is because I found out this morning that Mother of Daughters account was shut down due to this issue. (Story link in my Insta Story) I was just looking for her yesterday while talking to a nursery about different mums who make money on Instagram as InstaMums influencers. We couldn’t find her. I was perplexed until the news. I personally don’t put too many of my kids pictures in here as they are old enough to tell me they are embarrassed to be seen on my account. I promised my 7 yr old son here, Asger, that this photo will be a cuddle memory for mummy and not for Instagram (as evidenced by my lack of makeup! Oh.. and I have asked his permission first) The only one who loves being seen on camera with me is my hammy 5 yr old Ayla. Even then as you can see, her appearance is pretty limited. My husband has given me strict instructions to keep the kids off my page as much as possible. This is just us. I do follow many, many accounts, mum accounts I must say, where they are openly portraying their kids all the time. I have no problem with them doing that. It’s not my place to decide what’s best for them. I just wonder why it was Clemmie who felt she was being targeted. This was one reason why I decided to go from The Goddess Mum to this name. I didn’t want people to judge me purely on my parenting. Not that I think people should anyway. As far as I’m concerned, there are 3 schools of thoughts here: 1) Let’s put our kids pictures left, right and centre. 2) No way Jose! I will never share my kids faces or pictures in my account! 3) Meh.. they can come out of the dark once in a while. No harm. What are your thoughts and where do you belong in this equation?
Honestly, my ovaries & I have a deep conversation after looking at @hlemissy
Mama Session, it’s true. A big family is a dream of mine and wow does she make this dream look amazing. She welcomed her beautiful baby BOY Earth side last week and I’m so happy for them!!! ✨
