Another day, another art project! 😍 Analeigh loves her school so much because they do multiple art activities every single day. It’s so sweet to open her backpack and hear her proud descriptions of everything she made! Yesterday was Parent Day, so I came to Joey’s class and Jordan went with Analeigh. Snapped this sweet moment while he was there! What memories! #TheseAreTheDays#FutureArtist#AnaleighRose
These two are always crafting and making up fun games and they surprised me with my own shield that has an FS on it for favorite Stephanie😍 one of them shoots out sleeping darts and I think they may have accidentally shot me because I suddenly feel very sleepy😴 #imagination#friends#beingakid#momlife#thesearethedays#socute

Shaan this evening said shes going to listen to mummy and dadda now and not do any wee wees in her pullups anymore... hmmmm i really want to believe her (esp after last weeks poonami) 🤞💩🤔😬
👆🏼 yes thats her sitting on the potty!
One winters evening a mother decided to take her children outside to play in the snow. So she bundled them up layer upon layer, and finally they all tumbled out the door. And it took longer to put on all the layers then it did to play in the snow for Tootsie kept pulling the mittens off of her dinky dimpled hands. The little boy was so excited and said,”mommy, snow so yummy, I eat it!” So he did. And then the mother put the baby in a box all wrapped up in a blanket and put both children on a blue sled and pulled them @ the yard until the little boy got off to tromp through the snow with his new blue boots. Then the load was so light that the mother went to fast with the sled and the poor baby in the box took a spill and landed face down in the snow all wrapped up in her giant blanket😱 she sputtered and cried and the mother quickly picked her up and brushed the snow off her face and kissed her pink cheeks. Then they all headed inside for everyone was cold, and they were happy to have played in the last bit of daylight just before the sun went down. And their hearts were happy for the memories they’d made and the fresh air they breathed. And they all lived happily ever after at the Petershiem palace.🤗❤️ #snowdays#shortdays#thesearethedays#sofun#letthembelittle#happylittlehearts#snowsoyummy#coldhands#warmheart

Freedom looks good on you my love. ❤️ This year he’s finally taken the leap he’s been wanting to for 10 years. He’s now working full time with music and culture and it’s beyond lovely to see. He’s in charge of his own hours and the added value, love and time it brings to our everyday life, to our family makes me feel richer than any money ever could. May you always follow your passion, may you always stay wild, may you always be you. My hunky, wonderful, magnificent best friend of a husband you. ❤️ #elzes#thesearethedays#bestfriendgoals#marryyourbestfrienditsthebest#cdcc
A.A.Milne, one of our very favourite authors and the creator of Winnie The Pooh was born on this day 136 years ago. There are so many wonderful quotes from the bear of very little brain, but one that sums up The Professor the best is:
"When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen”.
What wisdom of Pooh do you live your life by?
"There has never been a day I've not been proud of you. Though some days I'm louder about other stuff and it's easy to miss that." A nice reminder from @storypeople to be sure the things we're loud about are the things we want them to hear.
As I sit at my prenatal appointment right now, I can’t help but think about how it doesn’t seem all that long ago, I was sitting in the same place dreaming about you + who you’d be. Now I try to envision your little brother or sister and wonder if they’ll be anything like you. We find out in less than 2 weeks whether your future will be filled with brother tackles or sweet sister time (or vice versa 😉). I know the transition from one to two will be no easy task, but the lump in my throat right now reminds me how growing + raising our children is truly the best time of our lives. #thehagler4#pregnantandemotional#thesearethedays#cohengrows

For whatever reason from the time she was as young as 1, getting her dressed has been an Olympic event. I have to argue over every article of clothing, because apparently they allllll cause her excruciating pain.
("Jeans?!?! I HATE JEANS!" "SOCKS?? I can't wear socks! It feels like there are rocks on my toes!" etc)
But today when she dressed herself she said "look mom I did it myself. I think I'm finally getting the hang of this getting dressed thing."
Well thank goodness for that. Only took us almost 5 years, but I guess I'm relieved I won't be arguing the merits of pants with my 30 year old, which is what I was preparing to do. 💗
Our old San Francisco kitchen might not be the pristine white subway tiled kitchen you normally see on Instagram, but it’s still Insta worthy with this little guy in it. A little peek at what our mornings often look like, Arlo “helping” me get breakfast ready. #arlitois2#mylittlehelper#lovehim#morninglight

I don't think these old phone booths are still operating, but the do look good in #London streets, don't they😳
My son will never have to use such phones, he probably won't even need his driving license as the cars will be driverless😜
You know I love a good twinning! But I also love a good glass of water 🖤 (ad) We've been doing great so far keeping up with not only drinking water, but less use of the plastic water bottles! @brita.canada definitely played a huge role in making it successful for us to drinking filtered water in our reusable cups 👌🏼🙌🏻 Have you been successful so far with your resolutions?! #FilterForGood

If you know me, you probably know that I’m a bit rubbish at ‘self care’ or whatever you want to call it. I tend not to really realise until I’ve maybe hit a wall or am completely burned out.
This morning, during Hazels nap, I saw this book. I bought it around a year ago and have never opened it. Having a baby sort of took over and then so did Netflix and my wanting to ‘zone out’ during nap time.
So today, I turned the television off and ignored the bathroom that needs a clean and opened up the book at today’s date.
The first line of today’s reading is: “I pray because I need to.” “I PRAY because I NEED to.” ... “the act and posture of prayer connects me back to something I lose so often.” So often. In this mish mash of ‘new life’ I rarely take moments to be by myself, let alone with Jesus.
The moment I read this today, my heart felt lighter. I felt reassured. He knows. He ALWAYS knows what we need to hear. He doesn’t get angry at me or push me away because I’ve spoken to him twice this week and both times it has been “please let Hazel sleep through tonight”. He loves me, in my weakness and my strength. He loves me when I’m exhausted and running on empty and when I am thriving and my cup overflows. He’s just been waiting for me AGAIN, he’s always ready for me.
So just take the time. For yourself. For your faith. For your relationships. For your relationship with Him. Just take the time. It is always so worth it.

It frustrates me to say this but lately I've actually been afraid of posting. Not because of a fear of not getting enough likes or Internet trolls or anything like that but other mothers comments. Over the past month multiple times I've been Mom shamed for things I've posted on my feed and in stories.. it's taken me a little while but I've decided to write about it on the blog. (Link in my bio) on that same note I want to say that if someone else's words have ever left you feeling like a failure in any way know the simple truth that mamas you are enough and no one else's experience or comment or opinion will ever change that.. you are enough, I am enough, we are enough. ❤️ #uniteinmotherhood
Ps. My top is from @loveallette and is breastfeeding friendly and just the loveliest ✨

Since June 2016, this formation, this weekly image, Penny’s cheeky face and most-importantly our matching outfits have all contributed to the style that this family is now known for. It’s our style. It’s us; it’s what we do - and we love it #allthatisthree#whpmystyle

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, paws and wings, I present to you the highlight of today’s spontaneous show: the acrobat gymnast duo Miss Adyline and Yoshi ! (Cue applause 👏) Now can you guess which judge is the Simon Cowell of the bunch ? Apparently little girls being tossed in the air by a dog isn’t that impressive to him 🤷♀️

I’ve been played all week! I’m pretty sure I lost a few times and I may not have the best score but I beat the levels of laundry, dishes, cleaning up toys, and now it’s Friday and that means it’s Poppas turn to be played by these little humans of ours 😉
F is for mama’s freedom!
Tea for two, requires your best blush pleated skirt, your favourite polka dot shirt and of course a quiff. Ted on the other hand prefers the natural look.
Cup of tea, anyone? #whpmystyle
