But I can’t even handle the little man that he looks like in this chair, chilling with his leg up. To say I’m in love with him is an understatement. Watch out girls, lady killer right here. #boys#ladykiller

I can’t believe it has already been three years since my incredible baby shower. I had my shower when I was 18 weeks along and I’m so thankful for that because at that point I was already experiencing complications and couldn’t stand on my feet for long. So thankful I was able to create these beautiful memories! 💗 #babyshower#pregnancy#decor
Kid friendly restaurant •
My friends and I are always on the lookout for kid friendly restaurants with an outdoor play area so that we can enjoy this cool weather.
Epona Lounge in @poloclubdubai is one of our favourites . The seating area is big and overlooking the riding arena (we often see the horses in action which the kids go crazy for) and then there is a jungle gym and sand pit right infront of it. Which means you can eat and drink while the kids play in sight! Yes! 🙌🏻
You can also pass by the stables nearby and if you are lucky enough the kids will be able to pet a horse 😍
Oh! And the food is great too! 😋
Definitely worth a visit 👍🏻

I’ve taken a short break from the Wannabe Balanced podcast (starting season 3 next week), but did an interview over on the Redefining Wealth Podcast with Patrice Washington @seekwisdompcw.
In this episode we talk about achieving balance and when to let things go. We talk about how it is okay to ask for help and how creating a list with 30-minute intervals can help get things done and about why it’s critical to let things go and not worry about the expectations of others.
Don't live your life based on “shoulds” and trying to manage the expectations of others.
Harmony can be an upgrade to balance. It's okay to have your own goals and aspirations and try to achieve balance in your life.
Sometimes you have to let expectations go and accept that having kids means that sometimes your house will be messy and unorganized.
Be organized and set up your workspace, so that you can focus on what you're doing and not be distracted by clutter around you.
Multitasking and trying to do more than one project at a time will actually cost you time in the long run.
To be productive, create a 30-minute list. List things you need to get done and use a timer to work on each item.
It’s okay to set time aside for yourself and your work and get help or outsource some of the household stuff.

Happy Friday, moms and dads! For those of us who are in a stretch where both partners are busy at work, let’s try to find some time this weekend to connect one-on-one. Even if it looks like this 😂 #newplaybook [by Zachary Kanin via @newyorkercartoons]

Lemme tell you about this little chunk. He looks so much like his brother but is different in SO many ways. As 2nd time parents, Matt & I notice different things, eye contact being the biggest one. While J rarely looked directly in our eyes, Miles stares into our souls. J was always a chill kid - happy but never super upset. Miles is VOCAL & demands nothing less 😅 When he is mad, the entire house knows, dogs included. But then his happiness damn near makes you forget every negative thought in the world.
We’ve wondered how parenting a neurotypical child would differ from one with autism & we’ve concluded it’s basically like we’re first time parents again with a cheat sheet. Obviously no 2 kids are the same & there will always be comparisons but it’s different when one has a learning disability. Because our “normal” is Autism parenting, will it be harder or easier with a kid without? We don’t know but we all learn something new everyday ✨
