It's that time of the year again 🌲
Her and I may have gotten our own large popcorn aside from dad...aaaand ate the whole thing lol 🤷🏻♀️ you only live once! Lol
They say that you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with....I think I’ve chosen wisely 😉
Just living her best life. I utterly adore the bright light that is you ♥️
Our little one loves the movies SO much. Lol she'll ask us weekly if a new movie is out so when one does we make it a big deal 😏 small foot was adorable!!
Sometimes you take 20 minutes to get all geared up to play in the snow and it lasts about two minutes 😅 lost a boot and a glove so I said, “forget it, we’re waiting for your dad to come home!”
For all the things my hands have held the best by far is you.
Yesterday morning, as I was running late to storytime with Paolo in the stroller, Enzo in the @mobywrap
, iced americano (that I probably shouldn’t have stopped for) in hand, a girl in her twenties shouted out to me, “you are mom goals!” She didn’t see my puffy eyes from too many nighttime wakings to count under my oversized sunglasses, she didn’t notice that I haven’t washed my hair since Sunday. She didn’t know I gave in to Peppa Pig AND Paw Patrol during breakfast time or that my own breakfast was basically leftover pumpkin pie. She couldn’t tell I’d forgotten half of the things I had meant to bring with me. She had no idea Paolo would later skip his nap and have not one but two kicking/screaming public meltdowns. I like to think she just saw a woman with two reasonably happy children (and a cup of coffee) getting shit done. I guess that’s my #momgoals
It’s hard not to get overwhelmed by the daily minutiae and “failures” that occur raising these sweet babrs, but more often than not they are happy and things get done. It’s important to remember that.
It’s chilly, I’m sipping on a Chai, and have flannel on. Let’s start the Holidays 🎄🎄🙃 #thursdayvibes
Doing a throw back Thursday to last year when Hayden was in my belly and it was just me and my girl in our Christmas jammies!
idk about y’all, but our bedroom gets the least amount of attention in our home. it’s usually piled with laundry and baby toys like 24/7. but not today because I deep cleaned that sucka with thieves, made my bed, sprayed my fave diy linen spray on literally everything, and now I’m diffusing the best christmas-y blend of my life.
That first snow fall buzz is in the air, and after this Riley was running around singing “Do you wanna build a snowman?” 🌨❄️ #rileyjaneandwesleywayne
This cutie... is officially sleeping through the night and done night nursing. He only wakes up around 5:30/6 am for his morning milk and goes back to sleep! That’s it! 18 months of nursing and we are almost done. He fought it... and we aren’t completely done yet but I’m ecstatic to finally be sleeping through the night myself!
All your breastfeeding mamas waiting for your turn to sleep! Don’t worry it’s coming! I’ve officially nursed, weaned and night weaned 3 babies in the last 6 years! Phew!
just realizing I never shared pics of Char from Halloween 🙈 so here. 😂
because noodles that fall on the table are tastier than noodles inside a bowl 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️

Cutest little babe with the cutest little turkey she made herself. 🦃♥️
When all you want is a little beauty sleep (on the living room floor), but all your little brother wants is to play with you 😍🤣
Thursday is usually the day I get to get out of the house and work at my fabulous part-time job, while the kids get to play with their dad and grandparents and not miss me one bit 🤪 I once read something by a working mom who had to travel for work, and she said that she never says to her kids, “Mommy HAS to go to work”, but instead, “Mommy GETS to go to work.” She didn’t want her kids to have a negative association with work like it was this evil thing taking their mom away, because she actually loved her job, even though she of course missed her kids while she was away. That stuck with me, so I always tell me kids - “Guess what! Mommy GETS to go to work today!” I want them to know that it’s something that I enjoy and look forward to, just as much as I love spending almost all of my other time with them. I want them to see me pursuing my passions and interests, right along side with my mom-life. I don’t have it all figured out, but that’s just a little thing that makes sense for me 🌟

Our little Picasso 👨🏼🎨 If you follow along on Stories then you caught the work of art the tiniest Mason left for us in the hallway when we thought he was napping. In my defense, I wasn’t home to witness the master piece as it was being created but it was quite the shock to walk up the stairs and see marker scribbles all over the wall. The way he left it, it looks a canvas!
We didn’t have this issue with Remy so I feel like I’m constantly on the look out for any pens, crayons or markers that are left around the house, Theo might get ideas 🤦🏽♀️ I wont lie, I chuckle at myself when I hit the stairs and catch a glimpse of the artists’ work 😂 #motherhood #momlife #momIRL #theodoreleroy #toddler #parenting #boymom

You ever play that “if you could only take 5 things with you to a desert island” game? Lately we’ve been having a lot of those conversations, but they’re less existential - they’re real. Yesterday there was a fire just west of us, they shut down 84 and we could hear the helicopters and we had to have a real talk: what to grab if we need to go. What do we really need? I have our papers, some formula and binkys (plural), dog food, our computer and that’s really all we need. These conversations aren’t as fun as potentially being trapped on a desert island but hopefully they help if ever need em. What would be in your bag?
Reindeer butts and squishy snuggles. Happy Thursday friends! ✨

It's been a while seen I've showed my face on here, so I thought I would reintroduce myself and give you some random facts about me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My name is Rachèle, pronounced ra-shell. I usually get called Rachel, Michelle, Rochelle or Patricia? (That's happened twice!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can say the alphabet backwards.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was once on a billboard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Up until I got pregnant, I was in a competitive adult Dodgeball league.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can bend my thumb back enough to touch my wrist. #partytrick
Donuts are my weakness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I went into labour with my oldest while watching The Martian at the movie theater. He was born 8 hours later.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I went into labour with my youngest at home in the middle of the night. He was born ONE hour later in an ambulance speeding toward the hospital. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have a tattoo of 11:11 on my left wrist. It's a good luck/good vibes thing for me. I see it all the time and I was actually born at 11:11 a.m.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Unpopular opinion: I just don't understand the appeal of red velvet cake. Just put cream cheese icing on literally any other cake! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My best pal, @clock_worklemon
, and I share the exact same birthday. She's a couple hours wiser than me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love the whole Thanksgiving - Halloween - Christmas season so much, but Christmas is my absolute favourite. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta and still live here. I feel like that's a rarity these days! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My husband is from Melbourne, Australia but he was born in Malaysia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My mom first suggested the names of both of my boys, and my company! (She should start a naming business!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(Not a fact, but I rarely take selfies sans babies anymore! I will have to work on that! 🤣)
Do we have any of these things in common? I would love to hear a random fact about you below! ♥️
“They” say LAUGHING is the best form of therapy. I completely agree....and lord knows I need tons of therapy raising 2 toddlers and a husband.

happy birthday, miss ting!!!!!!! thank you for all your support and your never ending willingness for slurpees. ily.
Matching is kinda our thing. 😝 - Thank you in advance! Instagram keeps thinking I’m spam when I reply simple comments due to a lot of them . (So Instagram blocks me from commenting certain things 😑)
"All little girls should be told they are pretty”— Marilyn Monroe
"A child's so sweet, their heart so pure, their love complete and our sadness they cure." - Emacity Shop
"Trust me when I tell you I'm on my girls. And every time I am, I know from the outside it looks like I'm an overbearing, controlling parent. But I don't think we are responsible to anybody but our kids and ourselves."
Make no mistake why these babies are here - they are here to replace us — Jerry Seinfeld
"A baby is something you carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years and in your heart until the day you die." - Mary Mason
“Like stars are to the sky, so are the children to our world. They deserve to shine!” - Chinonye J. Chidolue / #emacity
All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my mother!
A broken baby is an ignored baby. As parents /guardians we have take responsibility for not engaging our babies. Therefore, it’s imperative we start seeking out new ways to develop and excite our babies
She’s a bundle of joy ❤️”.
