In celebration of having the flu again, check out how I “handle” being sick in my blog post, “Man Flu? You Guys Have Nothing on “Valentina Flu.” 🤒 📸: @inkypixels
“Here's the thing. If you see someone who is obviously struggling with life, especially a mother, for the love of all that is holy offer them a sympathetic smile. Commiserate. Give them money, free food, or alcohol instead of judgement because shit is rough out here y’all.” ————————————————————- ‘The Lynn of it all’ is up on the blog this AM. It’s a warning to humanity everywhere. Link in bio . . . . . . . #parenthood #darkhumor #blogger #blog #hatersgonnahate #momsunite #parentingunplugged #realtalk #lifeisfunny #austin
This morning is requiring A LOT of coffee. A 5am wake up by the 3 year old who had to keep coming and informing us of EVERY little thing going on in his room (very politely I have to say). He then went on to start banging about and woke his sister at 6. I am SO BLOODY GRUMPY, what the opposite of having the patience of a saint? The off switch seems to be missing from my Wednesday... #canistartagain #notthepatienceofasaint #biscuitbribery #justalittlesitdown . . #passthecoffee #only7hourdtogo #givemeallthecoffee #mummyneedsanap #wherestheoffswitch . . #otis #kidsofinstagram #kidsofig #londonkids #toddlerlife #instakids #babyboy #3yearsold #babygirl #juno #babylife #babiesofinstagram #babiesofig #babiesofig #14months
. WILL I BE AT CORNER LANE TOMORROW? I will. And then at 8.45am I have a hot date I will be racing off for (with a chap I married this time of year in 2003) So come early and let's celebrate how far you have come with parenting. All the stuff you know now that you didn't know even a year ago. What we focus on grows!
Public Service Announcement 🤞🏼I feel like I need to step things up and get a psychology degree or something 📚🤓 I finally think I got my kid figured out and then he suddenly changes or goes through some growth spurt! 🧐 So I reckon parenting is 50% psychology and 50% FBI agent. And 100% no idea 😆😆😆 amiright or amiright? 💛 . . . . . . #momwrites #momlove #momcrush #momlife #mommyblogger #joyfulmamas #mamasays #motherhoodthroughinstagram #modernmotherhood #honestmotherhood #mothersandsons #mothersanddaughters #mummyblogger #dadblog #parentingunplugged #honestparenting #parentinglife #parentingblogs #dailyparenting #babiesforever #babylife #babiesofinstagram #toddlersofinstagram #kidsofinstagram #mumsofinstagram #dadsofinstagram #candidparenting #momblog #momentslikethese
I’m up. I’m up. It’s back to school and I hate the mornings. But I love my children. So I do it. . I’ve been driving Landon, who is now 13 years old, to school since he was 18 months. There was a short vacation from it when we lived in Atlanta for a year, and then again in 3rd grade. That driving sabbatical ended when he and some other boys got in trouble for making an inappropriate video with a cell phone. . 🤦‍♀️ . When he lost that privilege, of the bus, I lost my freedom. And last night, I lost my mind a little. A carpool fell through, not by fault of the other person, it’s just scheduling, it happens, but it happened at 9:30pm while I was in a meeting. . That meant I had to quickly prepare the next morning for four people at 10:30. My entire morning was going to flip. . Me, and my three kiddos, we’ve all got important places to be. . Honestly, it meant that I now had to leave the house at 7:00 instead of 8:00 to get everyone where they needed to go. . Landon and Adeline are at schools 20 minutes from each other. And Landon’s is 25 minutes away from our house. . Look, the logics mean I’m in the car for an hour in the morning with my little guy Oliver who is just along for the ride. . I know, Moms, there are so many of us that do it, and we say, “I don’t mind. It’s fine.” And maybe if I wasn’t still up with a toddler three times a night, or didn’t run a two small businesses and a non-profit, or just got a little more “me time” I would be one of them. . But not today. Today I am tired. Exhausted. And I cried a few tears before going to sleep because of it. . I told my husband that I normally love the begin of routine, but I already feel like I’m drowning. A feel that usually doesn’t come till February school vacation. . But. . I love my kids. I love their schools and the unique experiences they are having their. I love the way their teachers care about teaching and care about them. So. I do it. . I hate the mornings, but I sure do love my kids. Chronicler: @eddamarie

First work trip away from the little one. #mumguilt already mega high as she is not feeling well. Very tired from a lack of sleep and an early start, but at least there's #coffee to keep me going. Pleased that I've found a seat on the massively crammed train, even if it is next to the toilet!! #workingmom #workingmum #dailycommute #coffeefueledmum #babies #parentingunplugged #motherhoodunplugged #train #mumsofinstagram

Gardening is a lot of work!⁣ ⁣ And as I sit here weeding this patch that I neglected for the last half of the Summer... I can’t help but reflect on how similar it is to ANY goal your working towards⁣ ⁣ 1) the results don’t come overnight⁣ ⁣ 2) you have to dedicate CONSISTENT action with a firm BELIEF that SOMETHING good is going to come out of showing up day in and day out... Otherwise, it’s easy to throw down the gloves and say “what’s the point?” 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3) The fruit or vegetables that it yields are totally worth the work, and the reward that comes months after the prep began, is enough to keep you going, but you’ll never get there if you don’t just LEAN IN and START SOMEWHERE!⁣ ⁣ Lately, I’ve had a major gut check on a few fronts, and the self-reflection has been painful, but healing... Every perceived failure, mistake, or burned up neglected garden is JUST a GROWING experience!⁣ ⁣ Not an ENDING!⁣ ⁣ So yes, sometimes it’s ok to have a little pity party and self-reflection, but my dear... At some point, you gotta ask yourself-⁣ ⁣ At what point am I going to PICK UP THE GLOVES and GO BACK TO WORK!⁣ ⁣ Because as much as you hide, or pretend you can’t see the mess, or you don’t have time to fix it... You and I both know, we’re just kidding ourselves, and that makes us feel even worse!⁣ ⁣ Happiness + success don’t come FREE, and they don’t come EASY... But they’re also NOT THAT HARD, and the way to get there isn’t that COMPLICATED. ⁣ So keep your priorities front and center, keep it STUPID SIMPLE, SHOW UP, and TRUST the long term process!⁣ ⁣ And if no one else tells you today... I BELIEVE IN YOU!!! 😘💪🏻💕

The little brushed his own hair today and was sporting some awesome Farrah Fawcett look-a-like locks. Then he flipped it and this is what we got. His hygiene take-over has upped a notch since starting school. . Changes. So many changes. I feel like I sent him to school and the changing started pretty much immediately - just like people told me would happen. . Biggest change for me is that he's got this attitude that's a bit more intolerable than it was before. He's all like "I said blablabla" and "didn't you hear me, I want blablabla". . Um, excuse you little man, but you'd be better off taking that kind of talk to your room and far away from any living being. . Attitude. Oh how I can't stand attitude. It's my nemesis. It's where my patience decides to vacate the premises and leaves me hanging there entirely unsupported. It's where I'm prone to snap a bit more than usual. . But I'm working on it. I give him a look and ask him to repeat whatever he just said to me as if he's speaking to, oh, I don't know, HIS MOM. I remind him that we speak to each other with respect and kindness. I know he doesn't fully grasp those terms, but it's the language I'm focused on. It's the reminders and corrections that are important. And it's not just me that he needs to lose the attitude with, it's everybody. . On the other hand, this little human has a whole new vocabulary that seems to be growing at an amazingly quick speed. You better believe I love it. I love every bit of it. Because it means he's learning. It means that he's becoming more than just a kid. . He's becoming someone with opinions, and interests, and dislikes. He's becoming HIM.
But seriously... whoever came up with the idea to surround grocery checkout lines with candy was definitely NOT a parent! 🙄 . . . #parentinghumor #parentingmemes #parentingquotes #parentingunplugged #parenthood #motherhoodquotes #motherhoodunplugged #motherhood #momlife #momsbelike #momblogger #groceryshoppingwithkids

HOW TO loose baby weight FAST! ⠀ 🔹Sleep 3-4 hours a day and never nap because you have a life to live 🔹Breastfeed on demand 8+ times a day. This alone burns ~500 cal a day 🔹Pump milk every morning while trying to make and eat breakfast and calm your baby at the same time 🔹Hold, rock, and swing your fast growing baby in your arms as much as possible 🔹Walk your baby in a stroller for 2-3 hours a day. Don’t forget to load 20 lbs of emergency baby stuff 🔹Bring along a 30 lbs dog that’s stronger than you are and always pulls in the direction different from where you are going 🔹Do at home workouts while your baby naps. And house chores. You won’t be able to fully relax anyway. Moms never sleep the ‘before baby’ sleep again 🔹Your baby is up, and you haven’t finished all your chores yet? Wrap your baby around you in a sling and keep going 🔹Always plan a million things to do and people to meet. You will be consistently late so you’ll have to run everywhere. Sometimes while carrying a 15+ lbs car seat. ⠀ 🔺BONUS TIP🔺 ⠀ Always worry about your upcoming return to work, finding the right daycare/nanny, earning enough money to pay the nanny while you’re gone, pumping and storing enough milk...and just being enough. ⠀ 🔻ACTION!

BLOGGER REGRAMMED @chaospartyoffive . A few years ago I decided I was ready to start a family. It was a crazy decision but in my heart I knew I wanted a child. . Questions like how are you going to afford it? Where are you going to live? Arose. As anyone who knows me, these questions didn’t bring fear. I knew in my heart this was my journey and I was faithful that I could handle it. . Fast forward to my second child, two under two and my PPD and PPA was through the roof. I would ask myself daily how will I get through this? How can I be a good mom to these babies? . My daughter was 5 months old when I found out I’d have 3 under 3. Everyone asked how I was going to do it, how would I survive? Now here I am. A three year old, a 1 year old, and a 6 month old. . My life is turning from utter chaos to controlled chaos. . I have been continually blessed and have a life I could not have imagined. I have worked hard, sacrificed, cried and laughed. To be in a place where I can finally breathe and enjoy, take pride in the life I have built. It’s a beautiful thing. @chaospartyoffive . . . Why not start getting paid to do what you truly ❤ to do? . . How would you like to start working online the right way with a team of professionals to back you up? . . DM me now or head to my BIO to access the same videos that showed me exactly how to live life on my terms & how you can too!❤Danielle @thegoodlifebiz . . . . . . #momtribe #whenitsreal #motherhoodrising #motherhoodintheraw #momminainteasy #abeautifulmess #chaoschronicles #thiscrazylife #fiercemamas #badassmamas #parentingunplugged #motherhoodunplugged #parentingtheshitoutoflife #bloggingtherapy #momblog #momblogger #mothering #momtruth #postpartum #villagestrong #mytinymoments #momswithcameras #thedaysarelongbuttheyearsareshort #threeunderthree #thepursuitofjoyproject #mommyblogger #thegoodlifebiz #thevisionarytoolkit #socialmediamom #honestmotherhood
Reminding myself of this as I’m in the middle of trying to get the kids to pick up their mess.... Repost from @theunschooldad #regram #homeschool #parenting #parentingunplugged #parentsofinstagram
After a weekend of blistering heat, throw on a jacket and get outside to play with your child! Rainy day? Put on rain jackets and rubber boots to splash in the puddles. #helpmegrowmn #minnesota #parentingunplugged #twincities
September is National Family Meals Month, and I’ve been encouraging families to eat one more meal per week together. Research shows family mealtime improves the health of our families in multiple ways. 👌🏻 My own family (I) have been personally working on improving the quantity & quality of our mealtime. We’ve had some good moments. 😊That being said, it takes work. And, everything about mealtime falls mostly on my shoulders. So, while I continue to support #familymealsmonth , please know, I’m in this with you. HOW: It doesn’t make you a bad mom if you need a break and let your kids watch a show while they eat their dinner. ENLIST SUPPORT I’m personally going to start asking for more help from my spouse and kids, like helping me plan the week’s menu or asking the hubs to pick up a rotisserie chicken on his drive home. WHAT While we know it’s important to regularly offer a variety of foods, maybe you decide on pepperoni pizza because you’re in the mood to watch them devour a meal vs push food around on their plate. LIMIT NEGATIVITY. Let’s remind them, we’re all in this together & everybody benefits when we don’t yuck someone else’s yum. Especially if (Mom) spent a lot of time and energy getting it on their plate. I’m passionate about spreading the research about family mealtime & it’s benefits. ❤️ In the same breath, I recognize, high-quality family mealtime doesn’t come easy. I’m a dietitian, but I’m also a mom, striving to do what’s best for my family in a realistic, self compassionate way. #mealtimematters . . . #judgementfreezone #parenting #parentingunplugged #momlife #dietitiansofinstagram #dietitianapproved #dietitianmom #dinner #feedingkids #parentinggoals #momgoals #parentinglife

The week from hell continues.. I haven't slept properly in 8 days and it's starting to get to me now. You know when you just hit the point where you think, nope, not parenting today ✋ everything has just come to a halt in the house and it's so frustrating! I can't move from the sofa because Nico won't sleep anywhere else apart from on me. I think I just need a hug 😂😭
Tough day at nursery! 🤣😴😴
‘Love will always find a way’ ~ Sleeping Beauty ⠀ I’m not gonna lie this afternoon has been awful. The first week of being full time at school is certainly taking its toll already (insert fucked off face here as it’s only Tuesday), along side her not feeling 100% BUT seriously just look at her face 💓 Love her!
• WOHNUNG: • (althochdeutsch wonên: „zufrieden sein“, „wohnen“, „sein“, „bleiben“) ist die Zusammenfassung einer Mehrheit von Räumen,...“ • Wir wohnen hier „ÜBERALL.“ • Mit circa einem halben - dreiviertel Jahr beginnen sie sich fortzubewegen. Es wird gerobbt, gerutscht, gezogen, gekrabbelt und irgendwann wird aus dem #tragling ein #laufling . Im diesem Zusammenhang lernen auch sämtliche Spiel- und vorallem auch „NICHTspielsachen“ sich fortzubewegen. • „Mama neues Spiel: - du bringst es in mein Zimmer und ich wieder raus!“ • -„YIPPIE- das macht Spass!“ • Ich weiss noch ganz genau, wie nicht nur unsere Sachen, sondern auch ich , gelernt habe mich fortzubewegen . In der guten Absicht Ordnung zu halten. • - Non stop hinterhergeräumt triffts ganz gut. • Von Monat zu Monat wurde Sie schneller und Ich langsamer. Bis zu dem Punkt, an dem ich mir sagte: „Ein bis zweimal am Tag hinterher räumen reicht völlig. - Abends und mittags wenn sie im Bett ist. • Das mit dem Zweimal hat sich nun, seit dem zweiten Mitbewohner, auf fast einmal reduziert...;) • Nächste Challenge für mich: • Auch wenn hoher Besuch sich ankündigt, nur #genuggut aufräumen.

This is a friendly reminder to all parents. Repost @mdhippiemama ・・・ Do you know what you’re doing wrong as a mother? EVERYTHING? No matter how you’re disciplining them, feeding them, talking to them, teaching them...you’re doing it wrong. At least, you’re doing it wrong in someone’s eyes... In this day of constant opinions you’re bound to rub someone the wrong way with the way you’re raising your children. Fortunately, in this day of constant opinions you’re also bound to have folks who are behind those same decision. So, want to know what you’re doing RIGHT as a mom? EVERYTHING!! (Okay, so not everything...obviously, because nobody’s perfect.) Here’s the thing: you can’t please everyone. The only people you need to please are the ones in your immediate family. You know yourself and your situation better than everyone. You understand your reasons and rationale for the way you conduct your parenting and the choices you make. Don’t give a tremendous amount of consideration to the many, MANY opinions you get via social media. Take the external suggestions with a grain of salt. Look into yourself for the answers. You know more than you give yourself credit for. Don’t strive to make others happy; aim to do what’s right for you and your children. When you do that you can rest assured that you’re doing what you can to be the best mom that you can possibly be...and that is EVERYTHING that is right! @alpineedge #parenting #mothersunite #westandunited #momlife #parentingunplugged #motherhoodintheraw #outdoormom #kidsusingtools #supporteachother #judgementfreezone #reallifeparenting #reallifemom #rawparenting #joysofmotherhood #parentlife

I love this quote. I have made it my mission to lean in more to those things that make me happy and better serve myself and my family. Saying yes to things that fuel my passions. Saying yes to spending time with those that raise each other up. Saying yes to nourishing my body when its telling me to slow down. Saying yes to helping and supporting more people every day. #selfcare #parentingunplugged #thisismotherhood #educateandinspire #embraceyourself #motherhoodandme #goodforthesoul #mindandbody #gratitude #greenliving #grateful #healthyliving #happymama #mylifeinsquares #createyourlife #mummyblogger #mumlife #sayyes #priorities #dowhatyoulove #wfhm #perthmassagetherapist #holistichealth #babymassage
Of course we all love our kids. Would do anything for those adorable, perfect, funny little people. But oh my, it’s good for my mental health to say “goodbye” to them sometimes. Frankly, I’m a better mom if I’ve had a chance to miss them. • • This week Renee and Hannah untangle how hard it is to get people to take all your damn kids at once, the beautiful unicorn idea that is a kid-swap, and the wonder that is grandparents!

I am smaller than you and I shouldn’t know any better; So next time I do something don’t be mad, because I’m only learning and I need you to show and guide me through this as patiently, lovingly, and kindly as you can, Mama. We can get through this, together. I promise. . From your experience in parenthood, if our new borns could talk, what would they say to us?
Today I’ve had a few hours to myself so I took a long, hot shower without an audience, blow dried and straightened my hair with hearing screams of “turn it off its scary!” And painted my toenails without being jogged.

My eyes opened themselves at 6:30 this morning. To my amazement, it was the first time these eyes of mine opened all night. I checked my phone to see the time and put in a hearing aid so I'd get up with my husband's alarm. . Then I heard him, and a smile appeared on my face. The sound of my little man talking to himself in his room. I couldn't make out the words, but his chitter-chatter got me out of bed and lazily walk to his room. . There was my mini, playing with his Bey Blades in bed as quiet as he could. We had a a very short snuggle but it was enough to fill my heart with love and gratitude. . I'll tell ya, this kid drives me bonkers but man do I love him. . . . #thisisfour #juniorkindergarten #jk #boymom #boymomlife #thisboyslife #boymomsbelike #boymomlifebelike #momlife #thismomslife #love #dailyparenting #parentingunplugged #thisparentinglife #lifeasaparent #thislife #reallife #welcometoparenthood #parenting #parenthood #lifewithkids
•Tuesday• The school run has been done, the house has been polished and I’m sitting down with a cuppa going through photos for a school project Lydia is doing. I always feel guilty for sitting down during the day, like I should be rushing around on my feet all day to justify being a stay at home mum. Truth is, I’m still not doing what I really want to do, I’m still ticking off jobs, they just happen to be jobs that need to be done on the laptop and therefore facilitate sitting down! The lovely Anna @mamas_scrapbook always talks about self-care and the importance of valuing yourself: making sure you include yourself when you’re seeing to the family’s needs as so often as Mums we forget about ourselves. We shouldn’t feel guilty at having 5 minutes to grab ourselves a drink, when the reality is, it enables us to be a better parent because we’re not tired and grumpy because we haven’t eaten/drunk enough. So I’m going to savour my little bit of peace of quiet whilst the little one naps and the bigger two are at school/pre-school and I won’t feel guilty for doing my sitting down jobs now! #honestmotherhood #parentingunplugged #motherhoodunplugged #selfcare #mumlife #mumofthree #schoolrunstyle

- What are you not saying 'yes' to in your life right now? ⠀ ⠀ - Which dreams are you pushing to one side? ⠀ ⠀ - Which needs are tugging at you that you keep putting to the bottom of the to-do list? ⠀ ⠀ - Which of your desires do you fear? ⠀ ⠀ There is no time like now, mamas. Don't put it off until the kids are older, until you have more money, until you have more energy or until you feel better about yourself. ⠀ ⠀ Wouldn't you love your children to follow their hearts and feel happy and fulfilled? So why don't you inspire them by modelling this yourself?⠀ ⠀ Don’t fear your ‘yes’; listen to it.⠀ ⠀ Follow your heart and have the confidence to be who YOU want to be not who society or others think you should be. ⠀ ⠀ Pay attention to your daydreams and night visions, mamas and take one small step today towards ACTING on them. ⠀ ⠀ There is only one you. We have one life and then it's gone. ⠀ ⠀ And if you want to explore what your ‘yes’ is - drop me a line to book your complimentary discovery session through the link in my bio or on bit.ly/2jK1Vcq 😍⠀ ⠀ #lifecoachformamas#formamaswhowantmore#bobomama ⠀ ⠀

What does wellness look like to you? Is it drinking more water, or going to the gym more often. How about taking your vitamins, eating organic or seeking alternatives for day to day wellness support. But what about the chemicals we dont consider, the hygiene products, and cleaners we touch that effect our wellness. Toxins and chemicals are leaching through our lifestyles without us even knowing. As the gatekeepers of our homes, more and more people are turning over the labels and seeking to understand what is being put into our bodies. Essential oils have the ability to transform your home, family and lifestyle to a cleaner and EASIER alternative! • • • #essentialoils #holistic #averyoilylife #farmlifelessons #freerangeparenting #chemicalfree #lifestyle #momofthree #crunchymom #motherhooduncovered #parentingunplugged #letthembelittle #momlife #childhoodunplugged #thieves #toxinfree #clean #plantbasedcleaner #plantsarerad
I'm so proud of this little girl and how switched on she is! But seriously this is why I dont answer my phone much! My brain hurts, this was legit our doctors appointment yesterday morning! This kid barely took a breath! "Hello Doctor, Look at my new lunch box. Its got lots of things in it"... "I'm feeling better now (Doc checks ears, throat and chest) my throats not sore anymore and my tummys all better."... ....breaks into singing a rock song... "Can I please have a stamp? Mummy do you want a stamp? Mummys very brave too." "Do you like my shoes, Santa bought them for me." "Mummy the Doctor is wearing different clothes than last time... maybe they are at her house, where does she live Mum?" "I live near the big shops, and near the train. Theres Glendalough, and Leederville and Perth is where we get off!" "Yes I do like seeing the trains sometimes we see 5 trains..." The Doctor was laughing trying to take notes and said shes very switched on and great with her speech. Mila as were leaving "ok bye see you later see you next week" What can I say - chatting is in here genes! #mumlife #mumofone #parentingunplugged #honestparenting #holistichealth #kidsofinstagram #MilaMcJ #twoyearsold #myworld #beachlife #essentialoils #lowtoxliving #naturalwellness #createyourlife #wfhm #unicornmums #proudmumma #kids #outdoorkids #healthyliving #photooftheday #instamoments #mylifeinsquares
So many things I love all in one moment; my boy in my arms, us laughing and cuddling together, Flowers, leaves and medicine cushioning us and looking after us, soft pink cheeks to kiss and love, sparkly eyes, life giving smells, good rich earth and fresh air. Deep, sweet love in one huge bundle. May we always remember how the earth kisses our cheeks and makes our eyes shine. ————————————— #foraging #plantmedicine #forager #forage #mama #motherhood #parenting #parentingunplugged #mom #mum #mumlife #boy #beautiful #hugs #cuddles #laughter #inspiredbynature #ihavethisthingwithplants #getoutside
Having fun with Papa on the "Lion King" Captivation ... that's not tossing. ______________ Tossing A Baby It’s an established ritual of parenthood - its such a common meme that almost every new parents feels compelled to try it at least once. Babies are tossed lovingly into the air, where they hang and smiling weightless for a beautiful moment before being caught by their parents. And it can be super fun. However, executed poorly, it can also be dangerous and terrifying for the kid. ______________ Age 1.5yrs old below are not advice to be toss up to the air. ______________ For tossing to be fun and safe, babies must possess the rudimentary muscular development to control their own heads.  ______________ By replacing tossing , we did A captivating Lion King plays only. Mika is only 8mths plus by now and too young to be toss up like salad in the bowl 🤣 ______________ #babydevelopment #blwbaby #babydeveloping #childsafe #playsafe #playwithbaby #instababy #parenting #parenthood #blwbabyboy #mikagan #mikastorytime #mikaganmilstone #realparenting #instaparents #parentingunplugged #fatherhood #familytime #fatheroftheyear #lifeofadad #parentingdoneright #dadslife #fatherhoodrocks #parenting101 #fatherandson
