You guysssss 😍😍😍 we woke up to a winter wonderland! Evelynn loves it, and cried a lot when we had to go inside so our fingers wouldn’t freeze ☃️
Being a Florida girl, I’ve grown to love the snow. And snow days trapped inside are a dream, with hot coffee, warm homemade cinnamon rolls and Christmas movies on the agenda ☺️
What are everyone’s snow day plans?!
Watching the magic of Christmas from your little one’s eyes is one the most amazing things. The excitement with each light to searching for the elf every morning. These are memories in the making and I’m soaking in every minute of it.
To be a wise parent you must become like water.
It is content to nourish all it touches without discrimination.
While people struggle to move up,
water flows joyfully down, filling the low places.
As you care for your children
keep their environment uncluttered
free of useless gadgets and distractions.
Keep your conversations honest and straightforward. Free of control and manipulation.
Keep your decisions fair and generous, free of punishment and shame.
As you conduct your life
be serene and joyful,
Content and at peace.
This will be our greatest legacy. #raisegoodhumans #raisethemwild #honest #respectlife
It’s okay to be grumpy sometimes. To have bad days, to struggle, to make mistakes, to say the wrong thing, to feel overwhelmed and under appreciated, to be out-of-sorts, and sort-of-over-it all. It’s ok for us big humans and it’s ok for our little humans too. After all, we’re all human, right? How else will our little humans learn that it’s ok to be human?
REMEMBER; we’re all imperfect humans, raising imperfect humans, in an imperfect world... and that’s perfectly OK!
Oh, and in case no one has told you today, you’re doing a great job momma! .

Diapers are necessary. I get that. But can you imagine being all snuggled up in the womb for around 10 months and then suddenly living in diapers all day every day for the next 2-3 years?? That's a lot of time in diapers, so having soft and comfortable diapersis ideal, wouldn't you think? Since we aren't using cloth diapers this go-around, I found what I think is the next best thing in @PampersUS
new Pampers Swaddlers with Heart Quilts™. They are Pampers' softest diapers ever. I want to make sure my baby always feels swaddled in love and comfort, and using new Swaddlers with Heart Quilts. Be sure to tune into my Instagram stories over the next few days to see more ways my baby is #swaddledinlove
I think Milo takes the cake for best-looking beanie-wearer. #miloenoch
We are so excited for the snow tomorrow!❄️❄️❄️❄️ it’ll be Evelynn’s first snow where she can do more than just look at it 😂
I love the holidays and winter time for collecting new memories and having fun with our crazy little toddler 💕
It’s a bittersweet day. Today is the day I finish yoga teacher training and have to say goodbye to the heart warming and inspiring weekends I have come to love so much with some of the most beautiful souls. I am so grateful for this experience and getting to know some really amazing friends. I’m excited to see what is in store for everyone and I know we will all be making an impact. @kimuplift @liftyoga
Helena may have saved our beloved Gandalf tonight. She's a hero! I was working upstairs and she started calling for me. I discovered her trying to pull /hold Gandalf up as his collar had gotten stuck on a small piece of plastic on his litter box. He was hanging from his collar inside with his head poking out. He's fine. She's fine. But had she not called for me and then propped him up - he could have been hurt! So proud of our smart little girl. And I know Gandalf is grateful too. Of course HOW he got stuck and whether or not she was involved with that is another question. 😉

how we love thee and how adorable you always look in our Raise Good Humans tee 🎄😍
🎶On the fifth day of Christmas my toddler gave to me, fiiiive broken tree ornaments🎄 four Christmas stockings🧦 three chocolate Santas 🎅 two sleepless nights ☕ and a dirty diaper under the Christmas tree 🌲🎶
For all of you wondering, the actual toll of broken ornaments is now at 9. Anyone else keeping a running tally this year? 🤦
Also don't forget to follow along as I go through the entire 12 days of excting things my toddler gave to me♥️😉
Bump pictures aren't really my thing. They're kind of weird to be honest. But I kinda feel like I've been pregnant forever already and I'm trying to look at my world in a more positive light this week. In a little over a week we get to figure out if Luke is getting a sister or brother. Hint: Luke says it's a girl in there. We just want a kid as healthy and good hearted as our Luke is and we'll be the happiest parents ever. #babybump #19weekspregnant #lastTopekachild #LittleDudeLuke #raisegoodhumans #momlife #findthepositive
I was semi-wanting to do a great girl’s gift guide blog post- you know the type that segments out cute categories like “The Homebody” and “The Beauty Queen” and has different price points. But guys, it wasn’t in me. The holidays exhaust me. 🤷🏻♀️
So I gave you this. A Friday Five with some great gift ideas for the ladies in your life. I own and love them all.❤️

Someone said to us recently “ what a happy little girl that just goes to show she has a happy home and loving parents.” This comment to us hit me more than the person probably even realized. We try our best to give Elliana all our love and all the happiness, some days aren’t always sunshine and smiles but we still search for the best in those days as well. I try to teach Elliana that it is okay to feel anger, sadness, excitement, and fear but I try to teach her in a way where she needs to express it using her “big girl words” not to just throw herself on the floor and cry till she gets what she is looking for. Most days she tries to express herself and obviously there are days where she just wants to be a 1 1/2 year old and throw a temper tantrum but MOST days she chooses to use her “big girl words” MOST days she’s a happy giggly little girl. Little comments like the one above just validates we are on the right path with raising her and trying our best at this parent thing, little comments like that make me sit back and sigh with relief, parenting does not come with instructions and sometimes I wonder if we are doing a good job, little comments like that make a big difference and we should all spread positivity and love and realness. I’m so blessed and filled with such gratitude to be her mommy and I hope one day she looks back and feels the same ♥️
I hope that all made sense because I just wrote from the heart and what’s going through my head, if not, oh well makes perfect sense to me 😁💆🏻♀️ #toddlerlife #toddlerstyle #happiness #love #myreason #raisegoodhumans

Le vendredi après-midi c’est juste cette petite merveille et moi et papa parfois, pour quelques heures avant d’aller chercher Léon à l’école...
Et pendant la sieste, c’est juste moi...
Dehors il pleut, il fait froid, moi je suis si bien près du feu, à bouquiner et à penser juste à ce que nous allons faire ou pas d’ailleurs, rien faire c’est bien aussi, ce week-end... J’ai beaucoup de chance. Alors demain, Léon et moi irons acheter des gants, des chaussettes, des bonnets, du chocolat et ferons des dessins. Nous remplirons des sacs en plastique de ces trésors et nous les donneront à des sans-abris dès que nous en verrons un dans la rue. Apprendre à Léon l’esprit de Noël c’est avant tout lui apprendre les valeurs fondamentales : le partage, la bonté, ne pas juger, s’entraider, et surtout se considérer les uns les autres.
Ces moments un peu particuliers ne sont pas évidents à anticiper, surtout avec un enfant de 4 ans mais les quelques secondes d’échanges et d’entraide sont d’une richesse infinie et j’aime à croire qu’ils remplissent sont petit coeur de bonté et d’un immense amour...

☔️On rainy days in LA we get hot chocolate, then cuddle on the couch playing video games and stay off the roads cause drivers are cray! ☔️😂I woke up at 3:00 AM and worked until 10 covering the #GoldenGlobes
. Then I came home, fell asleep and was late picking Channing up from school. 🙈 I felt so bad until I realized I was only a few minutes late, she was with her teacher, and she won a positive behavior award in school so she didn’t even notice I was late. 😁 Perspective. .
I’m a working mom and business owner and I’m going to make mistakes. I have to keep things in perspective or I will go a little coo coo (and nobody wants that🤪) So now I’ve been up almost 24 hours minus a 1 hour nap and I’m off to get some much-needed rest. .
Take care of yourselves and always try to keep things in perspective… and slow down in the rain 😬🚗 #rainydays #LAlife #perspective #notaperfectmom #motherhoodinhollywood
His imagination is my favorite. What's something funny that your child has cooked up with their imagination? Leopold's latest is his "imaginary" yet very real little friends. He likes to pretend that his hands are spiders. They get into mischeif, climb things, make webs in my hair, and keep him entertained in the car or at restaurants. My favorite thing is that he has named them as of this week. His right hand is "Ino" (ee-no/male) and his left is "Bubble" (female). 😂 Officially the first things he has named on his own. •
This adorable shark outfit is from @patpatshopping @patpat_sharing.
It's super stretchy and comfortable, perfect for wiggly active toddlers like Leopold! //Get 12% off your order with the code Prince12! Head to the link in my bio to shop! #gifted
