To my beautiful, brave daughter,
My world turned upside down when you were born four years ago this morning. You crashed this perfectly planned out life I had and suddenly the parenting plans and dreams I’d thought were so important didn’t apply. You threw Daddy and I into a world of “medically complex” and “special needs” that we weren’t prepared for. But we learned and adjusted, and before we knew it, leading Team Natalie was our normal.
Can I tell you something, Natalie? The detour you’ve brought to our lives is such a blessing. Although we wouldn’t choose for you to have to fight the battles you fight, those battles have taught us to be strong, empathetic, patient, and grateful for everything in our world. We’re thankful you’ve taught us how to work as a team and how to love so hard. You, my sweet daughter, are everything I never knew I needed.
Watching you grow and learn in your own time brings us more pride and joy than we could ever explain. My hope for year 4, as you go off to preschool and hopefully see more of this world, is that everyone who meets you sees what I see... the face of one very, very special kid.
Happy birthday, my sweet baby.
Ppppffffftttttt.... I am a big bundle of tears today. I was welling up while watch Frankie dance to 5ive at her preschool party which I am pretty sure was hosted by Matt Lucas practising for a new sketch for Little Britain. This is it for me now. No more toddlers, no more pre schoolers, now we HAVE to go to school and can’t take a sneaky day off for birthdays or a half day for ice creams. Onwards and upwards for my girls but I do have a deep sense of sadness. One thing is for sure, they will always be my babies.

5tahun lalu juga pernah begini, tapi ibunya mirip banget ama badut 😂, tapi kali ini lebih pinter walaupun butuh 2.5 jam 😅dan dengan protes aduh aliss susahh bangettt bunn!
Sekarang, kalau ibunya lagi makeup, dari jauh dia uda komen

Terimakasih Lana sayang
Adek bikin bunda tambah yakin, hal kecil dan sederhana atau ga terpikirkan sekalipun bisa jadi pelajaran baik buat dirimu kelak💟

Keep shining my child, the world needs your light more than you’ll ever know. 💜💖

❤️My girl crush!❤️ Sharing a transformation very personal to me - my daughter Lily!
I almost struggle posting this because of fear of being bashed - but here goes nothing!
Today she had her annual physical for sports and the doctor questioned her quite a bit about her eating habits and if she was trying to lose excessive weight. Don’t get me wrong - I appreciate her concern but we know for certain that her 20lb weight loss over the last year was done completely the healthy way and actually not with a scale in mind. (And we had no idea she had lost that much because a scale isn’t something I expose her too)
You see this girl has transformed her thinking! No joke 😬 her diet consisted of carbs and chocolate! I’m not even kidding! She started trying veggies and eating more fruits, she ate carbs but not just pasta all the time. Complete diet change came out of no where and over time! Who knew that she would love butternut squash and spaghetti squash - way more than noodles!!! 😲
She has realized that unplugging from daily life and taking care of her mental health with exercise was amazing! These teens have so many pressures on them and by disconnecting for 30 or so minutes each day is just what beat the stress!
So yes Doc she has lost weight - the right way, the healthy way! The way you would speak to any adult or child about healthier habits! She is eating a balanced diet while still being a teenager and exercising! And thanks to @thechrisdowning @tonyshorton @autumncalabrese
For helping her love fitness!
She likes the way she feels and that is her motivation!!! She is boosting with confidence!
And damn - I want her arms 💪🏻 If this busy 17 year old, straight A student, Varsity cheerleader, yearbook editor with a social life can take care herself - I’m not sure your excuses will hold up 💁♀️

I’ve been in Canada with my son and my mom for a few days. It’s been years since I went on a vacation with my mom and when she asked to come we couldn’t say no 💗 we love our Lela! I’ll be back at the salon tomorrow 💋
Winter Wednesday’s! Light the candles and have a glass 🥂... or two 🍾
