I have been pretty blessed this year with my work schedule. I am able to get off work, pick this one up from school, workout at the gym for an hour, then we head over to Max’s school where we get her reading done while we wait for his activities to get over. In my 11 years of parenting this is the first time I have gotten to spend this much time with my kiddos. I will enjoy it while I can. #parentinglife #flexibleschedulesrock
This is feeling particularly true today after cleaning up the 50th mess my kids have made while I was busy doing something else. I woke up with a lot of energy and plenty of things to do 😜 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I guess I’ve been multitasking a bit much today, and I suppose this is their way of bringing back to the present moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tonight I will make a green light, yellow light, red light list. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Basically, it’s a things to do list 💚must get done 💛would be nice if it got done ❤️can go another day or so ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The things will rotate out and evolve🤞🏼😜 #lifewithmylittlegurus
At some point, we have all been stuck, whether mentally or physically. I have experienced both many times. This past weekend when Jeff and I were at Walmart grabbing some cough medicine for our kiddos so they could sleep through their never-ending coughs, I had an amazing moment. I was in a low squatted/knelt position as I was looking at all the different choices on the bottom shelf.  Once I found what I was looking for, I stood up and we began to walk towards the register. As we were walking, Jeff looks at me and says, “did you notice that you don’t ask for my help to get off the floor anymore?” I instantly stopped in my tracks with a completely shocked look on my face. This is one thing I didn’t even realize had changed for me. I have been dancing since I was 7 years old, but over the past 5-ish years I have had knee pain and  struggled to get up and down from the ground. I blamed it on my knees and all the dancing and years of strain on my body. Here I was now, stronger and more mobile, and didn’t even notice that I wasn’t gripping my husband's arm to pull me up like I have done countless times before. Today I am officially 30 pounds lighter. I have not weighed 137 pounds since college 10 years ago. My body has carried babies, it has taught dance for over 10 years, and it is now helping to carry me through this journey. We all only have one body, one beating heart, and an unknown amount of time to enjoy them. Don’t waste another second. :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️ ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
And just like that, after an amazing weekend of sunny weather, we in Melbourne are back to our cloudy and rainy days 🌧☔️! My to-do list is never ending but one of the things on my list is to get out of the house and do and see as much as I can with my two year old before bubs number two comes along. Mum guilt? Maybe! I know I won’t be able to do as much one on one stuff with my toddler nor will we as a family be as flexible as we are now and head out for long drives and explore when the second one comes - not initially anyways. So this weekend was all about doing as much as we could as a fambam of three! 👪 . If you haven’t been to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie, it’s definitely a place worth checking out. From the moment you walk in, it’s like you’re in chocolate heaven! They have every flavour of chocolate imaginable and they have it in so many different forms! Like, chocolate hand cream - come on guys, you’re killing me!! All in all, it’s a great stop along the way if you’re spending the day in the Yarra Valley! Just watch out for the sugar high...🤪 . . . . . #melbourne #melbournelife #melbournephotography #melbournesummer #visitmelbourne #melbournesights #yarravalleychocolaterie #yarravalley #yarravalleylife #mumlife #mumsofig #instamums #mumma #mama #mummylife #mumlyf #melbournemum #melbournemums #parentsunite #mumblog #parentinglife #parentsunite #parenthood #toddler #toddlerlife #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnantwithnumber2
MOM-ivation Monday's! Scarlet fever update: he seems to have his energy back but the rashes are still there and a few on his face now. Good news is he's playing again! Bad news is... more cleaning up for us but minus the clean up of vomit 🙌🏻 Thank God for work from home. I must say, our lives seem hectic at times but we are lucky to have the benefits of working from home. Back in the day, most parents would struggle for child care because you can't send a child to school or daycare sick. Some parents would opt to call in sick, use a vacation day or not even get paid. I do step back every so often and enjoy my view. My view of my life and the positives. As parents, we often forget to take a step back and see the good in our lives. Just some Monday MOM-ivation for you! . . . . . . #tdotmomming #mommingintdot #MOMivation #MOMivationmondays #mommyblogger #workfromhome #MOMitasking #momsintdot #momsincanada #momsinthe6ix #coldandfluseason #scarletfever #cleanup #mommylife #parentinglife #moms #dads #grateful #positivethoughts #positivevibes

Sometimes the best moments are in the every day activities 💕👱🏼‍♀️👧🏼👶🏼
I’ve had 8 months as a mother of two under 3. While the name of my blog “youngsters got me drove” clearly represents my day to day mood, this smile turns my heart to mush. He kills me. 🔹 I know you’re all out there, like me, just taking this parenting gig day by day and doing the best you can. Cheers to you all for making it through another day! 🥂 🔹 It’s not always smiles. A lot of times it’s a lot of snottin’ and baulin’, so when you have those moments...or hours 😑...remember you’re not the only one! 🙋‍♀️ 🔹 You’re not failing, and you’re not doing a bad job. 💕 🔹 Drop a comment and let me know what your youngsters have done to drive you to the edge today!?😆 🔹 My 2 year old had a fit today cause I wouldn’t let him tape together two pieces of cereal bar. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 🔹 Double tap if your kids are experts at doing something cute at exactly the right moment to keep you from crackin! 😆 . . . . . #thehappynow #thatsdarling #mytinymoments #personalblogger #momlife #baby #blogger #momblogger #lifestyleblogger #morningslikethese #mommymoment #momof2 #neverstop #thedarlingmovement #darlingmoments #parentingtheshitoutoflife #parentinglife

Kory always wants to sit on these little rides but whenever I ask him would he like to put some money in so that he can have a turn, he always says ‘no mum!’ But today when I asked him would he like a go, he said ‘Kory do’, then put the money in by himself and enjoyed the ride. Just by the look on his face you can tell he was pretty pleased with himself! 🚒

This photo makes me laugh...I think this is my ‘listening face.’ Jack is 11 but still tells me everything, including ALL the made-up stories his mind creates. It’s a LOT of information. Sometimes it’s overload, but I’m always grateful. Sometimes he knows it’s too much & he’ll say, “Mom, you don’t have to respond, but is it ok if I just keep talking?” HELL YESSSSS IT IS!!! Keep talking, Bubba! xoxo Feel free to caption this one for me because I’m at a loss! #boymomlife   #boymomproblems   #creativekids #syracuse #syracuseNY #cuse #315 #parentinglife #areyoulistening #kindof #informationoverload #resting   #listeningface   #restingblissface   #staypresent   #tunedin   #iamtrying   #iamexhausted   #somuchtalking   #somuchlistening   #captionthis
Day 15! Phew this #socialmumsoct challenge is relentless how has another 24hrs gone? Begin In this age of smartphones and laptops Sarah and I still rely on a good old list to organise our Bump&Boo events. So as the Guildhall begins fills and a new week begins, we begin to write our lists to ensure no detail is missed. Almost as satisfying as beginning a list however is the process of beginning to tick things off it ✔️ We can also begin to count down the 103 days until the next event 😆ekkkk!
I tried to capture the blueberry pancakes all over Parker’s face. Oh well! - We love our family day Sundays! - Jacksonites, where are we?

Starting my daughter out young!! According to Vygotsky, a well known psychologist, social interaction plays a critical role in the development of cognition. He also talks about how an elder helps to promote cognitive development in a minor, by providing a scaffold for learning. @alexmorgan.1313 @martavsilva10 #mombloggersoninstagram #parenting #momlife #parenthood #parenting101 #parentinglife #parentingtips #motherhood #parentingwin #parentingadvice #parentingindonesia #parentingproblems #parentinggoals #parentingblog #dailyparenting #parentingdoneright #parents #kids #parentlife #motherhoodunplugged #dadlife #parentinghacks #parentingskills #parentingishard #mumlife #dads

Today we remember the babies born sleeping, those we carried but never held, those we held but could not take home and those who came home but could not stay. Today is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day. I am the face. I am 1 in 4. Simply post a heart 💜 in the comments if you too have lost a precious baby so we can remember, love and honour them with you today.
