Jess and I couldn’t be more proud of our daughter. This is such an amazing honor and award to receive. Reading the email from the principal almost made me tear up 😢. This solidified that Jess and I are doing the right things as far as raising her. We can only teach our children how to act or behave, but it’s up to them to follow through and do things on their own. Congrats to the other recipient and the future ones as well. ———————————————

Best 4 months ever! It’s safe to say that I now have 3 best friends, Daddy Bear, Elle Belle and Nora Cakes. Life is so good!!!
Happy weekend lovelies!
On Wednesday she became a hell beast, I counted down the seconds till she went to her grandparents because she’s been hard work. I spent a lot of time screaming into my pillow.
Now she’s there I miss her like crazy and can’t wait to get her back.
Motherhood you tricky.

watch all to make sense of it.
My baby 👶🏾, he is 4y old and absolutely
obsessed with Lego. (No news most kids are)
Particularly Lego Nijago &
Star Wars ... not sure if I should thank you 🙏🏾 @lego
or just think that I have a “special” boy.
Ah!!! He gets to watch “screens” as saying Tv is not longer valid 😜 once a week for 30’ and No!? Violent programs at all. Mostly lego movies and blue planet.
Yet his skills and knowledge are amazing. Not only!! He learned to build his own weapons (as a war survivor myself and refugee as a child, I absolutely don’t accept guns or anything related to at home) but other than building it, I’m impressed with the way he sets all before,
maybe I should say @lego
somethings are just the way they are. Some people are just creative not always to please most of us. So yeahh ... he his amazing, his creations are spectacular for as long it stays on his observations with lego weapons.
as his mother i purely observe and educate at the best of my abilities. And he is the most caring child yet his compassion is towards “bad guys” ... @legoeducation @legodcgame @legoarchitecture @legominecraft @legohouse @legorussia @lego

I’ve been sitting on the couch scrolling through my camera roll realizing I take so many pictures everyday yet I rarely post because I feel like I don’t have any “perfect” pictures. Not enough natural light, there’s at least one blurry arm, Quinn picked out her outfit again and it consists of a red white and blue skirt and a tie dye T-shirt 🤦🏼♀️😂. But that’s life! Who wants fake? Pretty instagram accounts are fun to look at, but I personally don’t have time to stage everything to look so perfect and I’m learning to be okay with that. Sometimes we’ll get the perfect sleeping moment and other times it’ll be a blurry photo of a really sweet moment and I want to remember and treasure that just as much. 💗
You are all that I prayed for and more
Kids have a way of making you incredibly HUMBLE . This little man has challenged and pushed his way in this world since day one.. and since he’s already asking GROWN women to be his “girlfriend “ or “marry him” on a daily basis I’m preparing myself for a very exciting future 🤣Lets hope all those nights of prayer pay off, I’ve been relentless since the day I knew he was mine. #momofboys
to yesterday’s workout. Took my rest day that’s supposed to be tomorrow because: YOLO.
We were a little nervous about the ferris wheel at the #iowastatefair
and needed some extra cuddles. She kept telling me that she was scared. We’ve been working on our growth mindset talk and she reminded me at the top of the bottom of the ferris wheel “mommy, I’m afraid, but I can be brave!” When we got to the top she said “heyyy, it’s not so scary up here and I can see the whole world!” What a great reminder to always try the scary things, you never know what you might see at the top of a ferris wheel! 🎡
This drill press was my Grandpa's. I spent countless hours in his wood shop with him. The drill press was one of the first things he taught me how to use.
Watching my kids learn to use this press makes me happy and sad. I wish Grandpa was here to teach them his way.
All of my heart over looking the Hudson River 💖
Sooo our son started walking today.
Friends are one of the most important things in life! While some people have a talent for making friends easily, others take longer to flourish. 🌸 Although I was never a shrinking violet, I wasn’t the most outgoing kid ever and it took me a while to make good friends. In fact, they are friends for life! A small but select group of bestest of friends. My ride or die mates who would be there for me come 🌧 or ☀️!
Fortunately, B doesn’t seem to have any of my shyness! Works needs to be done on sharing but the trick seems to be that if she doesn’t share her toys, she can’t play with them.... And so all of a sudden she wants to share! What tricks do you use?

I’ve been pretty obsessed with finding amazing things for my B to grow up with. Things that fostered her development and style. I love simple design and want her to be comfortable and confident and I don’t want to compromise my own aesthetic. I’m also keen on making conscious choices, understanding where goods come from and how they do their best to care for the environment...
It’s tough being eco-conscious so I want to help making it easier for other parents! .

So we recently made the move to dryer balls instead of sheets and I am so in love with how much it has changed our clothes! •
1. Dryer balls help your dryer run more efficiently.
2. Dryer balls replace dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener, which saves money over time.
3. Dryer sheets and liquid softener contain scary chemicals. Wool dryer balls contain none!
4. Fabric softener make your towels less absorbent which is annoying over time!
5. Dryer balls can fluff up your clothes!
I put a drop or two of purify or lemon on my wool dryer balls and it gives my clothes a fresh scent that I so love! •

I love that this boy wants to get his hands dirty like his daddy
Quem nunca gostou das bolas de sabão?? 😍😍 @astridou
