Daddy daughter play time
📚 Oh hey Kindy kid 📚 Would you take a look at this lad? Today he had his first day at kindy. He had such a good day, and made so many friends. Highlights included playing in the playground, singing twinkle little star, the chickens, painting, reading, not having to sleep and.. ‘the taps in the bathroom are automatic! And the bin closes all by itself!’ He ended the day by saying ‘Mum I just LOVE kindy.’ I love you babe. So damn much. 💙 Oh and just in case you were worried. Frankie was okay without her brother. Last week over dinner Louis said to me ‘Mum I’m a bit worried about Frank when I go to kindy. I think she’s really going to miss me. I hope she’s okay.’ When we were on our own I asked her what she’d like to do. The list included going to ‘Donalds’, Nanny’s, Pa’s, Aunty Emma’s, the shops... the list goes on. We settled on painting and playing under the sprinkler - wearing Louis’ togs. Because she could. She also tried to sit in his car seat and sleep in his bed. 😂 These two are so much fun. When Frankie and I arrived at kindy this afternoon they ran at one another and hugged. Then he gave her a tour. Of the bathroom! 🙌🏼💁🏻‍♀️ As soon as we got home it was fight club again. 🙄😂
Dear friend photography, what an amazing gift you have brought into my life. I often can’t quite put into words where this passion has come from and what keeps me so addicted to glueing myself behind the lens. But when the last bit of sun strikes my sons face and let’s me see every tiny feature of his baby profile that I have traced endless times - The whizzy little hair, his nose that I love to kiss, those wet milk lips and that little hand that always pops up in his deep sleep ... The reason becomes clear: To be able to preserve this tiny slice of time of this fleeting beauty of innocent babyness ... That is crazy amazing. Thank you photography. I will forever keep wanting to learn more from you although you drive me nuts because you truly are not the easiest thing to get a handle of. But you are addictive - in a good way. Yours sincerely.
Tantrums Tantrums Tantrums!!! How often do we moms actually deal with this? . Daily, Weekly, Fortnightly or more frequently!! . Each child has a different way of being dealt with and his/her mom know it best how!! But did you actually know that these tantrums are good!! Here's why: 1. It's their way of expression: Tantrums are different with regard to each child and each child has a different way of expression. 2. Tantrums will bring you closer to your child: when your child expresses, and you comfort your child it's a bond being formed unknowingly and it's very strong. 3. He's just venting it out: How often don't you want to vent it out? Your little one is just doing the same. 4. It's going to help him sleep better: All the drama and crying is just going to make him lighter. Haven't you felt lighter after a bout of crying? And hasn't it helped? It's the same with that little being. 5. Tantrums best happen indoors than outdoors: It's so much better your munchkin throws a tantrum at home than in a restaurant. 6. Your child's behaviour is getting better: Each time he throws a tantrum, he's learning that there is a word of reality called "NO". It'll just build up his potential to face reality! 7. Your child is crying and screaming and yelling: How many people actually remember to do this? 8. He's just learning that it's ok to express himself in front of you and he feels safe to express in front of you! . . Tantrums are actually good, but when are out of control it's best to consult your Pediatrician for sound advice. Do share with me how you deal with such tantrums. Until next time, Stay Sane . . . #RucksarImtiaz #SpaceShaper #SpaceShapertips #tantrum #toddlertantrums #toddlerlife #motherhoodstruggles #motherhoodco #welcometoparenthood #boymom #toddlermom #typicalboy #mamaknowsbest #dailyparenting #parentingisnoteasy #parentingstruggles #indianblogger #mymoments #momtogs #thebloomforum #indianmoms #bangaloreinstagrammers #lifestyleblogger #lifestyle #childhoodunplugged #igtoddlers #instatoddler #instadaily
{eleven} I can’t stop thinking about what is coming, the big one. How on earth can you feel like your baby was just born while also feeling that he’s been around forever? This year of motherhood has been magical and the biggest honor of my life #alishamariaphotography #mylesguy #elevenmonths
Sometimes you have a crappy week. The kids are ill, you’re ill, it’s all too much. ——- You post a poem on #instagram out of frustration and fatigue. You never know who might see it, nor if it would matter a jot to them. —— And then, just as you’re taking your own temperature and feeling extra specially crap, this pops up in your email, and you’re crying happy tears! —— “Our weird phase of my daughter screaming at bedtime until I come back to the room continues, but I wanted to say that your response to my comment has really helped. .
Last night was awful, but your “power of Mum” mantra sang out in my heart. By ‪3:30am‬ I’d done everything in my tool box and was about to give in but the mantra “power of Mum” sung out at me from somewhere in the pits of my stomach and through the aching arms of carrying and rocking a 12kg child I felt a surge of energy, a belief in myself, so I kept going, my arms stopped hurting and my little girl FINALLY went back to sleep. . So I just wanted you to know that you are making a difference out there, to me at least (and to countless others I’m sure)
Keep up the good work!” . #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen #powerofmum #thistooshallpass #allthefeels #lovemyjob #parentingtheshitoutoflife #youvegotthismama #meanygirl #ukblogger #surreymummy #mumblogger #thisismotherhood #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodunplugged #documentyourdays #ukparentblogger #sharingiscaring #itsnicetobenice .

Weekend bliss with this cute face at @sydneyveganmarket 🌱
Cara and I, we could be anywhere and we’d be doing some simple casual sound games with words. I’ll clearly isolate and say each of the phonemes/sounds of different words (say, we could be on the road and I’d say the phonetic sounds “/b/, /u/, /s/” or we could be waiting at a restaurant and I’ll say “/c/, /u/, /p/“), and I’ll invite her to guess what I was thinking of. No printed letters. Just articulated sounds. She doesn’t guess right every time; but that’s not the point—she’s exploring, practicing, and enjoying. • And then one time, she initiated the game herself. We were at a home/furniture store and she said, “Guess, Mama,” then SHE sounded out “/b/, /e/, /d/“. And before I could actually guess, she excitedly said, “Bed! B... e... d... Bed!” Then she raised her hand and started making strokes in the air like she was writing the letters and she added, “You know, Mama, I see, I learn the letters in my head.” • And that’s the experience, the observation I had as guide as I set up and brought out the work you see in this post in an effort to follow her lead. I thought the then 3.4-year-old Cara you see in this video (video shows the 1st and 2nd time she’s worked with the material) would enjoy getting a word card, sounding out the letters she sees, using those sounds to figure out what the word says, matching the word to the object, and writing (because she also enjoys building and writing words). • She loves this tray! Always asking for more whenever she’s done. And it’s because every process involved in this work was based on a previously observed interest and readiness (and if she didn’t quite enjoy this, that would just be part of my observation, too). So I encourage you to OBSERVE. To learn Montessori observation. And then give the child opportunities to INDEPENDENTLY, REPEATEDLY, SUCCESSFULLY, JOYFULLY do what she’s, naturally, internally guided; already doing. And then enjoy mornings like this—when I get to enjoy listening to my daughter beginning to explore reading amidst chirping birds—2 of my favorite sounds in the world. • And check my Stories Highlight for a closer look (and some tips) at this work.
Time playing together is time well spent 👌🏼💛🌿
"The more slowly the trees grow at first, the sounder they are at the core, and I think it's the same is true of human beings" - Henry David Thoreau . Nature Schooling for our little girl at Marlboro Country, Sagada. Going down, she would stop us from our talking and say "Shhh! Quiet! Listen to the sounds of the birds" and we did. . . . . . #homeschooling #seroniohomeschooling #wildschooling #natureschooling #breathe2018 #wildandfreechildren #childhoodunplugged
Almond blossom hotspot. He got me some to put in a vase inside. Now the whole house smells like almond cake.

Always happiest playing in the dirt outside with her best mate close by 🐶🌳
Вот так мы провалялись эти дни дома, с температурой у Нанюры 🤒и вместо прогулок по городу смогли очень хорошо изучить все достопримечательности Барселоны в новом очень классном путеводителе 👌 . . Как говорится, нашли выход из положения 🙌А манюнька, до сих пор больнуша, поэтому мы появимся здесь чуть позже 👋 . . Пожелайте нам скоро выздоровления, а мы приготовим вам много много интересненького 😘

I miss our park times 😭 weekend come soon please ❤️
School term is just around the corner and the thought of it is making me sink. Patience can wear thin, but having all my cubs close + home is what makes me the happiest. @hertravellingtribe ‘s live story tonight has given me an extra kick up the butt to plan big adventures. The beach is calling 🐚
КРАСИВО ТО КАК!!!!! Гулять! Гулять! Гулять! Блин, -15. Всё равно гулять! НУ КАК МОЖЕТ БЫТЬ ТАК КРАСИВО?!!!! 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 это поток мыслей в моей голове, когда я выглянула с утра в окно. ⠀ Вау! Просто вау! ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️ ⠀
This weather got to her. Sick days mean getting cozy at home with mismatched pjs and socks, and providing every form of entertainment and food, only to have them immediately rejected. But, at least we get to cuddle (a little).
Fruit picking is one of my fav Things to do! It reminds me so much of my childhood holidays to my cousins farm. Saturday we are off strawberry picking again which I’m sure parker will eat his weight in berries before we exit 🙈 🍓 . . . . . . . . #letthembelittle #letthemexplore #wbl_greatoutdoors #wildandbravelittles #runwildmychild #magicofchildhood #childhoodunplugged #pixelkids #inspiredbynature #inspiredbycolour #childofig #simplychildren #littleandbrave #the_sugar_jar #tsj_newadventures #cameramama #kidsforreal #mom_hub #ourcandidlife #momentsinthesun #enchantedchildhood
