Feeling emotional tonight...I always wanted a house full of girls...pretty dresses, makeup & shopping...anyone who knows me well knows I love all things girly...I grieve my identical twin girls...watching their amazing big sisters set the bar high...giving to this world...achieving...I wanted them to grow together, always having each other...my heart aches always but tonight my arms feel empty...bringing a baby silently into the world breaks you in a way I can’t describe...the intense sadness, anger and injustice...this picture makes me ache. It also brings me healing that I am plodding on, I have a new perspective on life and so much more to enjoy...I miss you my little angel baby, I know you would have been beautiful...but who would you be...I will always wonder??? #stillbirth#twinsisters#twinlesstwin#twins#sisters#siblings#babyloss#infantloss#parenting#parentingafterloss#grief#mygriefjourney#ttts#tttssurvivor#feelingemotional#thankful#mumslife
We care about the world our babies will grow up in. That’s why we signed a pledge earlier this year with The UK Organisation of Responsible Businesses and aligned with Ethical Hour to commit to our environmental sustainability.
Did you know that for every 8 plastic bottles that are thrown away, we take out of landfills and recycle. We don’t use plastic in any of our packaging, in fact it’s all 100% biodegradable & recyclable.
We use Organic Cotton to protect delicate newborn skin as well as protecting our environment at the same time. We believe that if we care for the planet now, by the time our babies are our age, they will have the glance to enjoy it the same way we do.
Shop safe for your baby and for our planet. #aidielondon
Btw we know you’ve all been asking for these beautiful blankets and we are due a restock very soon. Stay tuned for updates! 💖
Repost from @kingnahh - Every word counts, every image you put into their minds and hearts shape their reality. Feed them love, let them know it's okay to make mistakes. A boy with low self-esteem grows to become a man with no self-esteem. Encouragement is the key and motivation is the steering wheel. Your children will hear your voice forever. Make sure your voice is positvely powerful enough to make them feel strong.
Look your children in their eyes. Hold them tight and slence all their fears. Give them enough space to fall, and let them know the power is in standing up! Unstoppable. Unstoppable. Unstoppable!
Your children are your reflection, make sure that mirror shines bright. There may be days when they feel like putting their head down, and that's when your voice is needed the most. The power is in your hands. Give them one hundred percent of your heart, and I guarantee you, your children will make you smile forever!

Nothing could have been more demanding than raising up a kid like lesus! I mean he was the SON of God and the amount of prophecy that was given before and after his birth is enough to make his parents feel unworthy!
Even Mary questioned why it had to be her. A part of me feels she probably felt overwhelmed by the responsibility. And her thoughts were: Lord why me? This is alot Oh! 😊
And because we are reading the bible in retrospect we often forget Jesus grew up like every other kid in his days.
He most likely was fed breast milk
He cried and his mum must have spanked him a few times.
He played ball (or whatever they played at that time 😀). He ate food😁
Used the toilet 😁
Visited friend.. etc.
All this I owe to the parenting method of Mary and Joseph.
I would have thought becaue of the magnitude of the calling upon Jesus, his parents would have maybe sent him to serve in the temple like Samuel did! Maybe become a priest or scholar.
But I believe strongly that the Holy spirit played a major role in helping both Mary and Joseph raise Jesus 'the way he OUGHT TO GO and when he became old he did not depart from it'. One major benefits of allowing Jesus live a normal life (to the extent that he learnt carpentry like his father!) Was that: he had great interpersonal skills! He had lived among people,worked among people and Interacted with people soo much it was easy for him to get his first set of disciples. All through the gospels we see Jesus demonstrating great people's persons skills! A very huge difference between him and John the Baptist. (Why?their assignments were different). Thank God Mary and Joseph had this understanding through the Holyspirit and led him a right. Or else we would have had a Jesus who knew absolutely nothing about life and the people he was sent to save!
Now I understand better the prophecy that : THE virgin will conceieve and give birth to a son. When God wanted to send Jesus he had a 'THE' virgin on his mind: Mary, who was engaged to be married to a Joseph the carpenter. ...to be continued.

It is the best feeling in the world, when your child finds comfort in your arms.

Do you ever look at your kids and have that moment where you think to yourself, wow, you're only __ years old?
We are still getting compliments from family and friends on how well-behaved and grown up Brody was at our wedding. He took his role very seriously (and busted out some awesome dance moves in between which I will eventually share!) and was so happy for his dad. But Brad and I often have to remind ourselves that he is only 8! He's still a baby 😍
Both of us grew up in split families and the emotional toll it takes is surprising for people who haven't gone through it. As a child and teen, you tend to get told you are more mature than your peers. Now, as an adult, I understand why. You hear, feel and see things that force you to grow up. This guy handles it admirably but there are definitely instances when we see ourselves in him and know exactly what he's thinking even when he doesn't say it - and the times he opens up on his own validates that. I'm so glad I can be there for him as he goes through it all. If anything, he has helped me in countless more ways than I have helped him.
So this post is really just an appreciation for this special boy as well as a shout out to those who know what this is like and try to shield the kids as much as possible, while letting them live their childhood. ✌
When the doctor told me I was having a boy, I cried. Not in disappointment, but in fear. I didn't know what to do with a boy. I didn't know how I would navigate being a single mom of a boy--with no help from a dad to teach him 'boy' things, I was afraid that I might let him down. But I couldnt fail with this kid. He made being a mom challenging and so fun at the same time. Of all 4 of my kids, I remember moments of his past 12 years the most. I think because it has felt like milestones to me as much as it was for him. I remember when we moved into our first apartment together and he smacked on a stack of moving boxes the first time he crawled. I remember when he discovered Veggie Tales sitting on my bed and watching the DVD from his first birthday. When he started doing extra and harder work in second grade and then when he skipped grades and more grades and continued to excel and achieve academically. I remember when he turned 9 and I told him he was halfway to being kicked out of the house 😂🤷♀️ I remember just this year when he played on a new football team with new kids that were a year older than him. He worked so hard. He got teased harder and barely played in the games. But, he stuck with it and finished the season and I felt so thankful that as challenging as it was, he valued hard work and finishing what he started. He's a hard worker, responsible, and the best big brother. I'm so thankful to be his mom and feel honored to be a witness to how God continues to grows him and use his life. Happy birthday my Charlie-boy. You're the coolest kid I know. ♡

Celebrating my baby turning seven today! ❤️ oh my WORD I don’t feel old enough to have a 7YO!! 😱🤣
Feeling a little overwhelmed today what with not being with him this morning.😥feel like I need to mention Austin’s dad here though, he’s in the video, he saved the cake till I could get there ☺️
I have to say there aren’t many parents who, after seven years together, split up 10 months ago and can honestly say they haven’t argued once! Who knew we could do it? This morning my boy had his first birthday without me there when he woke up. Instead, he had his morning with his dad and I popped round, he’s then had his evening with me and his dad came over to watch him open my presents whilst we had a coffee. Whatever we felt about one another the second we split we made a promise to Coparent NO MATTER WHAT. We stick to our 50/50 care, we stick to our routine (which by the way took 2 bottles of wine, a calendar and fours hours of negotiation 🙄) and not only that but we actually go out of our way to help one another. Like when my car needs fixing, he does it! When he needs shopping picking up, I get it. I cannot stress enough how important it is to take the moral high ground and get on for the sake of the kids. Hell knows, there’s truth to the saying ‘fake it till you make it’ because we’ve gotten so used to our facade, I think we actually get on now 🤔😂 #coparenting#coparents#parenting#babydaddy#kids#family#dadsmatter#allparentsmatter

@Regran_ed from @elly_agust -
MENGAPA ANAK-ANAK SUKA BERPERILAKU LEBIH BURUK KETIKA IBUNYA BERADA DI DEKATNYA?
Jawabnya akan membuat kita sedikit merasa berbeda tentang air mata (tangisan) dan amukan (tantrum).
Akhirnya kita mendapatkan jawaban untuk pertanyaan ini, dan itu ternyata adalah sesuatu yang baik.
Bagi seorang ibu sebaiknya tidak melewatkan ini. Alasan mengapa anak-anak ibu bersikap lebih buruk ketika para ibu mereka berada di sekitarnya? Ini sederhana.
Jika anak anda bertindak lebih buruk di depan ibunya itu berarti bahwa anda (seorang ibu) sudah menjadi ibu yang baik, dan telah melakukan pekerjaan sebagai ibu dengan benar.
Sebagai seorang ayah, saya tahu persis bagaimana anak-anak selalu dalam perilaku terbaiknya ketika mereka sedang bersama ayahnya. NAH.. drama dimulai ketika ibunya datang. Lalu mengapa mereka selalu bertindak lebih buruk di depan ibunya?
Setelah kami membaca postingan menakjubkan dari Kate Surfs, kami sangat menyukainya, kami merasa begitu banyak yang ingin kami bagi dengan kalian semua.
Jadi begini. Alasan mengapa anak-anak cerderung bersikap buruk ketika ibu mereka berada di sekitarnya. Ini sebuah teori yang indah, yang akan membuat kita semua merasa sedikit berbeda membuat kesimpulan tentang rengekan, air mata dan amukan, saya yakin:
Karena ANDA-ANDA (para ibu) adalah tempat yang aman. ANDA adalah tempat mereka bisa datang dengan semua masalah mereka. Jika Anda tidak dapat membuat sesuatu yang lebih baik, maka siapa lagi yang bisa? (menurut mereka).
Jika anak sudah berada dalam situasi yang tidak menyenangkan sepanjang hari, kemudian mereka melihat anda (ibu) datang, mereka tahu, akhirnya inilah waktu untuk melepaskan beban itu.
Lanjut, dikolom komentar, ya :)

🔴dobry nauczyciel, czyli kto❓🔴 jakiś czas temu rozmawiałam z moją starszą córką, która była nieco oburzona sposobem prowadzenia lekcji przez kilku nauczycieli 👩🏼🏫 (przypomnę, że mamy tu do czynienia z 8-klasistką, więc to już taka zaawansowana uczennica)... w pewnym momencie Marianka powiedziała🗯: bo problem w tym, że są nauczyciele, którzy wymagają, żebyśmy umieli coś równie dobrze, jak oni, zanim nam to wytłumaczą i wprowadzą... a mi się wtedy zapaliła 💡nad głową❗️ no tak, bo chodzi o to, żeby nauczyciel pamiętał, że ma NAUCZYĆ. Nie tylko „uczyć”, ale znalezc sposób, żeby dotrzeć do każdego... i przede wszystkim pamiętać, że 🔴uczeń MA PRAWO NIE WIEDZIEĆ🔴 Jakby wiedział, to nie byłby potrzebny ten zawód na świecie, serio... 🙏🏻 jeśli nauczyciel traktuje ucznia, jako równego sobie, to powinien zmienić profesję😅 to się tyczy każdego szczebla edukacji❗️ ucząc dzieci, ucząc studentów,ucząc dorosłych... moja Pani Profesor, często mi powtarza (kiedy głosimy się nad poprawkami do doktoratu): Zuzanko, nie martw się, to po prostu bardzo trudne zadanie, ten cały doktorat. Właśnie dlatego Państwo przewidziało promotora. Gdyby zadanie było wykonalne w pojedynkę, nikt by go z urzędu nie przydzielał. 😅❤️❤️❤️Także pamiętajcie, gdyby nauka była prosta, nikt z urzędu nie przydzielałby nauczycieli ❤️ ___________________
Social media can make parenting look so perfect and so easy. But let me tell ya, being a mom is HARD. ⠀⠀
Some days I don’t have time to shower without interruption or brush my hair. Some days I sit in a corner and just ball my eyes out because my kid is being relentless and I don’t know what to do with him. Some days I can’t even check just one thing off my “to-do” list because my kid needs constant attention and supervision. I feel that I can’t work a real job, even though I want to badly (and have had some amazing opportunities come up), because I can’t even sit down for 10 minutes to edit photos or write out a workout without my child biting my toes, trying to slam or type on my computer, write in my book, or scream for attention. My whole world revolves around this kid, and I wouldn’t trade him for the world, but I don’t want everyone to think that it is by any means easy. ⠀⠀
Being a mom is by far one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, and I tend to beat myself up a lot because I am not able to do everything I want to do and I feel like I am a failure as a mother and a wife. So I just have to remind myself that I am doing the best I can. Even when I don’t get a single thing done that I had set out to do that day. ⠀⠀
My kid might be a handful right now, but his hugs and kisses are so worth it and make my heart so full🤗 (and the little stinker knows this, so whenever I am upset with him for doing something naughty, he reaches over for a hug and pats me on the back after looking at me as if I betrayed him🤦🏼♀️ I literally cannot be mad after that🙄) so here are some of my favorite pictures of my kid and I🤗 ——————————————————

My kids were unhinged so I separated them for a bit. Went to get this guy and found him like this at 4:30. Fingers crossed he stays asleep until morning 😬😬😬
[sobre ser criança*]
Já alguma vez paraste para pensar em que consiste verdadeiramente ser criança? Em ter uma infância feliz? Tu foste realmente criança?
✓Ser verdadeiramente criança é ter o direito de ser tratada como igual aos demais, independentemente da raça, religião ou nacionalidade. ✓É sentir-se protegida e assim desenvolver-se física, mental/emocional e socialmente.
✓Ser criança é ter um nome, uma identidade e uma nacionalidade.
✓Ser criança é ter direito a todos os cuidados básicos de saúde, alimentação e habitação.
✓Ser criança é ter direito a educação.
✓Ser criança é ter direito a uma família plena em amor, compreensão, respeito e igual valor.
✓Ser criança é ter direito a educação gratuita e oportunidades de lazer adequadas a cada faixa etária.
✓Ser criança é ter direito a ser socorrida e protegida em caso de perigo/catástrofe.
✓Ser criança é ter o direito de ser protegida do abandono e exploração do trabalho infantil.
✓Ser criança é ter o direito de crescer num espírito de solidariedade, compreensão, amizade e justiça entre os povos.
Estes são os direitos que qualquer criança tem seja em que lugar do mundo for.
Estes são os direitos básicos que permitem qualquer criança ter uma infância minimamente segura, saudável, feliz....
Uma criança para crescer saudavelmente necessita de amor, afecto, respeito pela sua integridade, igual valor e vínculos seguros. Só assim estaremos a permitir-lhe ser de facto criança. Sem gritos, sem ofensas, sem humilhações, sem desrespeito pela sua integridade, sem guerras, sem abusos, sem explorações.
E tu, tiveste mesmo oportunidade de ter uma infância feliz? Uma verdadeira infância? Pensa nisto. É urgente aprendermos a cuidar melhor das nossas crianças.
How is everyone doing this week? Getting excited for thanksgiving? What are you guys doing? Anything special?

And our new coffee/tea press arrived just on time for me to feel better. I am trying to replace plastic coffee cups and just brew coffee. So, we will see how it goes and if I like it enough ;) oh and that coffee cup is from @target@hearthandhand

Sebuah gambaran betapa beratnya momong anak, curhatan para orangtua baru.
Intinya : jadi orangtua baru itu berat. Kadang kita nggak bisa ideal. Seringkali orang cuma bisa ngejudge, padahal belum tentu dia sendiri bisa menjalani.
