This morning was spent with this little one at playgroup. I don’t know some days what I would do without it, honestly it’s my sanity and saves me from long days on my own.What does everyone else do in the day time to pass time with little ones?

Disney Springs. I know we r going into Summer but my daughter is seriously obsessed with Christmas and because it’s NEVER too early to start thinking about Christmas here she is admiring Mickey & Minnie! She’s been singing Christmas carols all year long and watches the Grinch at least 3 times a week. I just hope once Christmas comes around she isn’t completely over it, 😂! She absolutely loved the store, Disney’s Days of Christmas with Mickey and the entire crew inside. What’s your child or children’s favorite holiday??? •••••#disneysprings #waltdisneyworld #wdw #disneyworld #disneygram #disneyworld #disneyparks #instadisney #disneylove #disneymagic #disneyprincess #mickeymouse #disneyphoto #disneylife #disneyfan #adventureawaits #welltraveled #passportready #iamatraveler #tlpicks #raisingthefuture #documentyourdays #motherly #instamama #momlifestyle #mytinytribe #motherhoodintheraw #mumswhostyle #littlemomentsofhappiness #mamasgotthis

Everything I do, she looks up to me. If I brush my hair, she brushes hers. If I brush my teeth, she brushes hers. Put on my makeup, she pretends to put hers on too. When I speak, she analyzes my mouth. I hope that in whatever I do, she sees the good in my doings. I hope that I can continue to show her how a woman, wife, and mom should be. And most importantly, how a woman of God should be.

There are many things about Home educating that suck. Straddling the mother/teacher/learning facilitator roles, rarely having a quiet brain space moment, constantly worrying about the future and if you’re doing the right thing, dealing with family and friends misconceptions, dealing with strangers open judgement and on and on. But when I get to take my three girls (teenager not pictured, I respect her wish to not be in most photos!) to the lake, in the sunshine and when it’s quiet, when they get playgrounds, museums, swimming pools and libraries to themselves, when they get to choose who their friends are, when I can give them one on one support.. that ups the balance a bit. I wish I could be sure and secure in my decision to Home Ed, but anxiety is sadly in my nature and I will always question myself. It is something that only the future will show but right now in these smiles and freedom it all feels very right......#homeeducation #homeeducator #homeeducationuk #homeschooluk #thisiswhathomeeducationlookslike #worldschooling #raisingthefuture

If you are a toddler parent or caregiver, you are probably familiar with this unpleasant feeling that I have experience many times of the years. This uncomfortable feeling bubbling up from deep within. My chest feels tight, my heart starts racing, my jaw clenches and I feel heat rising up into my face..Yep, that’s the feeling of being triggered. I used to be chronically trigger by challenging toddler behavior..It was then I realized that I was so focused on controlling this little one’s behavior and “making him obey” that I lost sight of the bigger picture..Toddlers are inherently impulsive. They aren’t trying to get under our skin and create chaos. It’s developmental. Putting his behavior into context was a game changer and drastically reduced my feelings of frustration and overwhelm. .Have you ever felt the frustration bubbling up within you? We would love to know what you do to ease the intensity of the situation!

Look at this little guy sleeping in longer than Mama and Dada yesterday morning! 💤•I had to wake him up for an appointment to see the Speech and Language team in Newham. We’ve been waiting for a referral from the Paediatrician at Homerton Hospital to see a specialist about Nate’s eating however, when I chased it up almost a month later, it still hadn’t been signed off. It’s supposed to be an urgent referral too as he’s almost one and time is pushing on 🙄•Anyway, it turns out that because we now live in Newham and we’re still being seen by a hospital in Hackney, that we need to be assessed by a local team first before being referred; I literally got a last minute call from said team and saw them a few days later.•They were great! They asked me about Nate’s eating history, observed him eating a variety of foods (😬) and did a really thorough assessment! They also (re)confirmed that there is definitely an issue and have now referred us on to the ENT where they will stick a camera down his throat and check that everything is structurally okay before they do further investigation!•We now have another observation lined up with Speech and Language for 2 weeks time where they will assess him eating a different variety of foods. That, the ENT appointment, an appointment with the Paediatrician to check we’re getting seen and sorted properly AND Nate’s 1 year check mean we have a very busy few months at the hospitals!

T U E S D A Y | Are you even a Mama if you don’t have a baby at your feet staring longingly at whatever item of food or drink you’re holding? Although, to be honest, Freddie spent most of yesterday like this because teething badly has turned him into a bit of a clingy monster! Apart from the time we spent out with a lovely friend and her little one, Freddie is always happy when we are out and about. He has also developed quite a thing for green smoothies and when I attempted to give him a nice blueberry one yesterday he cried. Actually cried. Until I did his usual green one and all was fine again! These 15 month olds can certainly communicate their preferences... Today the dogs are off for a test hour at their prospective dog boarders. It feels a bit like an interview and I’m hoping they pass because if not we will be a bit stuck for our next Center Parcs vacay. It all seems a bit much but hopefully it goes okay and Barney’s penchant for tennis balls doesn’t put her off... I hope you have a lovely Tuesday! #toddlermom #toddlerlife #babyatmyfeet #greensmoothie #toddlersnacks #zaradress #mumlife #momitforward #mytinymoments #mummydiaries #momentsofmine #featuremama #bloggermama #dailyparenting #honestlyparents #raisingthefuture #uniteinmotherhood #momhub #themotherhoodcorner #acupofmotherhood #ohmamamoment #ohheymama #memoirsofmotherhood #momdotme #nestingly #alldaykids #vscobaby #joyfulmamas #clickinmoms

“Mama, can you help me carry my weapons?” 😂I do love this boy and our chilled out Tuesdays. And after reading a lovely post from @whatdoyou.uk about children flying the nest, it makes me even more thankful for our time together. 💙Parenting small people is EXHAUSTING at times {well, most of the time actually}, but the years are certainly fleeting and I can imagine how sad it is when they have finally been and gone. 😟✨Now if you’ll excuse me, the smalls are causing havoc downstairs and I need to go and attend to their madness, in an appreciative and happy way, of course. 🤣Enjoy your Tuesday gang! #thedaysarelongbuttheyearsareshort

My son’s teammate “will you watch my water bottle so no one throws it?” This question probably seemed so small to him, but he took his task seriously. He’s protecting the bottle and my mama heart swelled with pride. I’ve always tried to teach my children compassion, kindness and willingness to help others in need. It’s beyond amazing when you see your years of hard work come to fruition in some of the most seemingly innocuous moments. I don’t care how many points he makes for his team, I want him to be a true teammate. #mombrag #soproudofyou #teammates

I remember when I use to dream about a little girl with a full head of hair, and now here you are in my arms🍃

If a picture could capture my current phase of motherhood— this would be it. “Mama! I need you!” just about every moment of every day... and sometimes night. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining but gosh it is exhausting sometimes isn’t it? This past week has somewhat spilled over into this week in the sense that I’ve been feeling particularly irritable and mean mommy has come out more than I’d like to admit. We all have those times don’t we? Big and little alike. Our kiddos feelings are as big and as valid as our own. Managing them isn’t always easy no matter your age. In completely transparency, I wasn’t taught how to cope with my anxiety as a child and that followed me on into adulthood. I’ve come a long way and the biggest motivation for me to manage it is that my boys are watching. They learn just about everything from us. Kiddo see kiddo do. It’s a huge responsibility! But sometimes we feel and do and that’s okay. Be kind to yourselves mamas. #mumsofinstagram #mumlife #momlife #motherhoodlens #momcommunity #momentsinmotherhood #momlifeisthebestlife #moments_of_mom #justmomlife #messy_motherhood #memoirsofmotherhood #clubmomme #slowmotherhood #lovingtheordinarymoments #magicofmotherhood #inspiremothers #instamommy  #teammotherly #unitedinmotherhood #mommymoments  #bestofmom #simplymamahood #honestlymothering  #raisingthefuture #documentyourdays #motherly #instamama #momlifestyle #mytinytribe #motherhoodintheraw

New blog post alert!If your kids drive you nuts and you find yourself struggling with the cranky and hard days, I encourage you to read this.{Link to full post in bio} “Find time in the morning to evaluate your upcoming day, and to pray for the moments that you need His unfailing grace. Take a breather. Take the time to collect before you react. Tell them daily through your words, but mostly through your actions, that they are loved, cherished, smart, capable, independent, kind, and compassionate. Sail through the hard days with a desire to understand WHY the days are hard, and why their little hearts are so frustrated. They see the world through unexperienced eyes and brains, and they are not always able to process the things we think they are. I promise, the behavior of your children will make so much more sense when you stop for a moment to see the world from tiny little two-foot perspective.” Also enjoy a few photos of Henry over the past two years, like this one from when he was 8 months old. 😍Question: what ages are your kids now, and what is the hardest part about their current stage?#celebratemotherhood #motherhood #motherhoodquotes #motherhoodunplugged #toddlerhood #toddlerlife #parenting #parentingadvice #loveyourbabies #reallifemoments #bloggersgetsocial #mamablogger #mamablog #childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #letthembelittle #littleandbrave #mytinymoments #parenthood_unveiled #joyfulmamas #honestlymothering #raisingthefuture

This lil cutie recently decided she likes hairclips and headbands.There's a small chance she may be overdoing it.

First family beach trip of the season in the books and I was quickly reminded how easily sand gets in places where you’d really not prefer it. 🧐🙅🏻‍♀️ #totesworthitthough.[ad] I’ve been using self tanning products for years, but never really found “the one”. They either left my skin orange and streaky or I couldn’t stand the smell of it. I’ve been testing @versaspa’s products out for about a month now and I’m absolutely in love. Their self tanner gives me the best, streak free, and most natural color; and it smells amazing! Versaspa products combines the science of skincare with advanced technology to rejuvenate your skin for a beautiful tan without worrying about the sun’s harmful rays ☀️..Be sure to use code ‘mrshappygilmore30’ via the link in my profile for a discount! And feel free to ask me any questions via comments below or DM! #versaspa #sunlesstan #selftan #spraytan #makeup #mua #beauty #skincare #tanningtips #tangoals

When did my little boy grow up?! He has blossomed into the sweetest little man and I am so proud. I am beyond lucky that coaching has given me the opportunity to stay home with him, do what I absolutely LOVE and earn a paycheck!! You can do it too! Do you have to be fit? Nope. Do you have to know anything about health and fitness? Nope. So if you need a change, your job isn’t fulfilling, or you just want to be able to be there for EVERY little moment, message me and let’s talk. 💕 ..............:........#raisingthefuture #mompreneurs #boymama #itsthelittlethingsinlife #joyfulmamas #roughntough #stayathomemomma

This room. It sure has served us and both our girls well. We decorated it when I was pregnant with Emily, not knowing her gender until birth.___Both girls have grown and changed so much in it. It has been rearranged more times than I can recall. No surprise there. And now the time to make it “Isabelle’s Room” has come.___We have gotten her new bed, but still have lots to do (buy, build, paint). It’s hard to believe how quickly we’ve arrived here. And I may get a little sentimental when it’s all done. My girls are growing up faster than I am prepared for...#stopgrowingsofast
