Let’s talk about “the village”- you know, the community everybody ideally has when raising a family.
Double-tap and tell me about your experience with village and parenting so far ✍🏻
Do you have a close group of people to call on? Are you part of a village? Do you have to go it alone with your nuclear family?
Here’s where I’m at on this:
Before kids, I didn’t spend much time pondering the concept and meaning of “the village”. After having kids, I very quickly realized that having a village would be awesome on so many levels.
We're a military family and it seems that we are constantly on the move- as in 3 years is the longest we've spent in one place over the past 10 years. It's arguably challenging to create a village this way, a tightly knit group of people to call on and to be called upon by.
It sometimes makes me sad for my kids that they won’t experience living next to the same awesome neighbor as I did growing up. I know they'll be fine, but.
On the other hand- I tell myself- we learn to be more self reliant that way and really create a global village. 🤷🏻♀️✌️😁 #ittakesavillage#sleephelp#babysleephelp#familysleepinstitute#militaryparents#militaryfamilies

💥INTRODUCING The Fourth (of five) 🖐🏼Causes that we will be contributing towards from launch day ( September 24th)🙌🏼
Any purchase made within our 'The Homeless & Hungry'' 🏠 section will contribute to either Operation Homefront or The Coalition For The Homeless.
Operation Homefront Is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive, not simply struggle to get by, in the communities they have worked so hard to protect. For over fifteen years, they have provided programs that offer relief through Critical Financial Assistance and transitional housing programs, resilience through permanent housing and caregiver support services, and recurring family support programs and services throughout the year that help military families.
The Coalition For The Homeless Is the nation’s oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless men, women and children. They believe that affordable housing, sufficient food and the chance to work for a living wage are fundamental rights in a civilized society.

So we’ve woken up to the fabulous news that Daddy will be back on Friday and home for a whole week!
Yes you’re right in thinking he’s only just gone back but he was in fact supposed to have 6 weeks off but had to go back this week to find out what work he has on... a little backwards but that’s the military for you.
I’m pretty excited too as next week we have a mini family break to Dorset planned, we were just hoping he’d get the time off!
Such a great way to start our day and I’m happy for little Ava too as this time round she keeps asking where Daddy is (poor pickle), so she’s gonna love it!
Have a lovely day everyone!

During the 2017 season, UMPS CARE Charities partnered with @theuso to expand our ticket program after MLB umpires made a unanimous decision to find a way to give back to military families. Many umpires have family members that are in the military and some have even served themselves, so they are incredibly grateful for our servicemen and -women. The BLUE Crew Ticket program allows military families the opportunity to bond at baseball games and make up for some of the time they may have missed. Donate at the link In our profile or:

How many new moms play the blame game? 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️. Like blaming yourself all day for any little cry, mess or chaos during the day. .
It’s much harder than i thought to stay objective and not constantly worry that im doing it wrong or that someone will judge me. .
I have fleeting moments when i shower and dress myself. And then the majority of the time — my hair is greasy and not brushed, my clothes are constantly overly revealing so that i can be milked at any moment (sorry for TMI 😂) and usually my baby is crying for a reason i have yet to figure out.
So mama bears, i invite you to join me in a little grace today. Take that 5 minutes of fleeting quiet and just sit and be a tad selfish. Let’s share this grace. 💙
