Better late then never! Had a fun few days celebrating my last year of my 20’s! Last year was probably one of my trying times but yet most growing years I have ever had! My biggest wish for this year is to learn to believe in myself each and everyday! I have always let this get in the way of things, because I always tend to feel I am never “good enough” but I am here to say NO MORE! Although they say to never say your wish out loud, I have always been somewhat of a rule breaker🤷🏻‍♀️ so here is to making this year the best year yet! . . . . . #momsbelike #birthdaywish #birthdaywishes #lastyearofmy20s #turning29 #mothersloveisforever #momblogger #mommyblog #momblog #confettiballoons #floridastyle #lifeofamom #makingwishes #momsofinstagram #momsofig #floridagirl #floridamom #toddlermom #girlmom #momofgirls #momswithstyle #momblogger #momvlogger #stpetelife #ilovetheburg #momswithcameras #brunnette #stylepost #liketoknowit #momootd

Sensory activities with a 7 month old The first time I tried painting with Penelope she was 4 and a half months, I had a large piece of paper a couple drops of paint, a garbage bag on the floor to cover the floors and I let her go wild. It was messy, funny and enjoyable. In fact I even let her do it in her diaper to avoid a large clean up. This time I around I wanted to try something different with her. Paint in a ziplock bag, it was a different experience for her but she did end up picking up the bag and mashing the paint all around. I say that’s a sensory win! #mombloggers #lifeofamom #torontomomblogger #sensorytime #exploringbaby

Do you like packing for trips? I’m fine with packing, but it’s the unpacking that always makes me groan (and it also means the vacation is officially over!) 😩🧳

So let me ask, why do they always prefer to eat mummy's or daddy's food🙄😄😩? • One minute they are full, the next they are hovering round yours when you finally get the chance to settle into yours..Kai😂😂 • Share you thoughts and concerns #adielaslovers and how do you handle the situation?

Guys, put your hands together for my ULTIMATE WORKOUT PARTNER! Mademoiselle NURAI! . . Once upon a time, I used to suffer with FOMO for not being able to go to the gym or attending any fitness classes after having her. But then I turned my house into a gym. . . I shared it earlier in my stories how I put an exercise mat next to the play mat in Nurai’s room. She plays along while I workout. It’s not as civil as it seems! Ofcouse she jumps on me, sits on my tummy, tries to hug me and even hold my legs! But kids do the same when we pray namaz with them. DO WE STOP PRAYING ? Ofcourse not ! We continue to pray and they learn to respect our prayer time and pray along! . . In the same way now with time, Nurai tries to squat along with me, plank like me and even does summersault along with her own shenanigans. . . Don’t let it be an excuse not to exercise! It might not be perfect but it sure is fun ! Keeps your mind away from your burning muscles. . . DO YOU WORKOUT WITH YOUR KIDS AT HOME? How do you keep them engaged? . . P.S: a lot of people tell me wait till you have two! Well I would say I’ll take my chances atleast make an effort to workout for a bit. And no this is NOT an announcement of us expecting 2nd one ! . . ————————————- #waistlinewednesday #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlossjourney #dubailifestyleblogger #fitnessblogger #fitnessfreakmom #fitnesschallenge #justdoit #wecandoit #dubaimummyblogger #dubamum #fitnesstips #healthylifestyle #momdiaries #lifeofamom #pakistaniblogger #bloggerbabies

One does a face plant in my room at 3:00am the other is up screaming at 4:30am and of course this mama bear is now up... but not quite awake 🥴 and of course everyone needs “mama”... one is hungry as a horse, the other wants nothing to do with food (even though I know he’s hungry too) and when your ass is up before the sun... of course you’re gonna pass out... MUST BE NICE BUBBY!! Thank the heavens for the hideous color of pink 🤣 nothing fancy over here... no ice or little umbrellas with fruit..... Step 1️⃣ open bottle. Step 2️⃣ pour in drink crystals. Step3️⃣ shake. Step 4️⃣ chug chug chug. Step 5️⃣ wait on this all natural concoction of prebiotics, chromium and green coffee bean extract do its thing 🙌. And we all know when we’re tired we make very very poor food choices... this also helps curb those cravings for sugary carby comforts of goodness 🤣🤣 #ineedsleep #whynotpapabear #lifeofamom #boymom #mustbenice #sendhelp #naturalenergy #thinkpink #supplements #nothingfancy #chugchugchug #mamabear #guthealth #nocarbs #sugarissogoodthough #yougotthis

My bean stalk next to my baby bean. She is almost 25 inches now compared to the 1.95 cm this time last year. ♥️ Remembering this day last year when Nick & I first got to see her & hear her quick heartbeat how emotional & exciting it was. One of the best ways to start out the year. ♥️ We didn't know what her gender was (I always thought it was a girl). We didn't know who she would resemble more, & we still really don't. Regardless we had never been more excited or in love with our little bean. So incredibly grateful God gave her to us. . . . . . . . #elouiseeden #babylancour #4monthsold #babiesofinstagram #igmotherhood #instamom #motherhoodunplugged #girlmom #ig_motherhood #momblogger #lifeofamom #mkemom #babyblues #milwaukeemoms #vscofilters #vsco #honestmommy #sahm #sahmstyle #stayathomemom #motherhoodunhinged #momsandmamas #ultrasound #themotherhoodcorner

Day 8 of this little man’s life and we can’t get enough. Don’t mind us, we will just be hibernating with this baby bear for the rest of all time. See ya in the spring 😍😍

Time is limited and unfortunately I am only one person. This is nothing personal against any of my wonderful customers, it is simply a personal choice for now, hopefully I will be able to return to taking custom orders in the future.

Heutiges #thema #stillen oder #flasche ♡ Wir wir alle wissen ist das ein sehr #kontroverses Thema. ♡ Bei meinem #sohn hat das Stillen leider aus verschiedenen Gründen nicht funktioniert. Ich habe lange gebraucht um zu verarbeiten das ich ihn nicht stillen konnte. Ich habe zwar regelmässig abgepumpt aber meine Milch wurde immer weniger. ♡ Ich finde die Flasche so unheimlich unpraktisch und würde es dem stillen nicht vorziehen. Ich kenne die Gründe warum es bei meinem Sohn nicht geklappt hat und nun werde ich es besser machen. ♡ Das ständige anrühren der Milch, Temperatur kontrollieren, Flasche halten, Flasche spülen, flasche sterilisieren... Das ging mir unheimlich auf den Keks. Deshalb suche ich mir vorher schon stillberaterinnen raus die ich kontaktieren kann wenn etwas nicht klappt. ♡ Stillen ist das beste für das Kind ->ABER<- ich würde niemals eine Mutter verurteilen die ihr Kind nicht stillen mag. Aus welchen Gründen auch immer. Ich würde auch keine Mutter verurteilen die es nicht mal versucht. Warum auch? Die Pre Nahrung ist so gut hier in Deutschland. Bevor die Mutter Kind Beziehung leidet lieber Pre füttern! ♡ Wie seht ihr das? Lieber Flasche oder stillen? 🌿🌿🌿 #kiwu#kiwumädels#sahm#schwanger#breastfeeding#pregnant#6weeks#community#babygirl#babyboy#babywahn#schwangerschaft#youngmom#lifeofamom#babynumber2

| MESSY PLAY | I rarely get to do things like this after school due to my job. But when I do I cherish every minute of it. As you can see she absolutely loved our time at the park. She’s filthy but who cares. I can’t stand seeing children not being allowed to be children. Let them get messy, dirty absolutely covered in filth. Not only does it help build up their immune system but it also means they don’t feel like they are being wrapped in bubble wrap and not allowed to join in with there friends etc. Clothes can be washed, they can bathed but the memories last forever! They don’t stay little for long 👨‍👩‍👧❤️ #daughter #afterschool #messyplay #parktime #park #playing #playingwithfriends #letthembelittle #dirtwontkillthem #mygirl #mummysgirl #picoftheday #instadaily #instadaughter #instachildren #instamum #daughter #makingmemories #memorieslastalifetime #qualitytime #familytime #family #always #motherdaughter #motheranddaughter #mumlife #motherhood #lifeofamom

Modtog i dag denne skønne Goodiebox med lækre sager. Instagram mindede mig i øvrigt om, at jeg også modtog en Goodiebox på denne dato for to år siden 🙈🧡 Har efterhånden en del uåbnede produkter, fordi det simpelthen er svært at følge med i en travl hverdag, hvor man sjældent selv er førsteprioritet. Nu er der ro på huset. Aftensmaden er indtaget og alle unger er krøbet under dynen. Jeg er ligeså gået i seng med Ellinor, som skal ammes i søvn og holdes tæt for at finde ro om aftenen, så det gør vi 💕 Så nu står den på serier med høretelefoner i ørerne med en sovende baby i armhulen 😍✌

I want these amazing and strong women to be heard. I want their stories to be known because they were brave enough to share them and because they will impact other people . . .It has almost been 7 months since I attended The Haven Retreat. When I arrived at The Haven Retreat I was a proud mom of two incredible boys, thankful for the life I had, and 6 months separated from a 20-year marriage. I questioned whether I really needed to be there and wrestled with if I was taking a spot that someone else needed more. I have waited to write my story with the hope of having an ending of restoration because everyone loves a happy ending, right? . . I guess I was using my separation/marriage as another deflection from myself or maybe as an achievement…as if there could be no victory if the marriage truly did fail. However, I do have a story of restoration: the restoration is ME. I am being restored and what a precious gift that is in itself! I am learning how to live freely and openly for the first time in my life. It’s not easy but I can tell you, it is worth it. Child abuse can carry such a heavy weight. That weight was unrecognizable for me until I started shedding it. . . I went to The Haven Retreat as a way of putting myself in time out, away from everything and to see if my childhood really was the root of many underlying issues. I needed clarity. My childhood, from the age of 4 through young adulthood, consisted of being sexually abused multiple times by a loved and trusted family member, living in an emotionally/verbally, and at times, physically abusive home, and rape. . .

oh that fabulous time i took my sweet little man wine tasting - - can you see the wine in my eyes? 🤣🤣🤣 . . so i shared in my stories that baby jax had been sleeping pretty well in his bassinet again the last couple days/nights.. well i must’ve jinxed it because last night.. we were on the struggle bus! the first 3.5 hours of the night he slept fine in his bassinet, tried to do a dream feed around 11... downhill from there. so basically had to hold him in bed all night.. one of the things i find so difficult in motherhood is mot having control of every single thing.. i cannot control every situation & make it perfect.. i can’t make this little baby sleep eight hours right now & sometimes when i’m in this difficult moment i get so caught up in it & get so lost that i really lose control.. someone shared that you cannot control your children, but you can control your reactions. something i am still learning every day. i totally let my emotions take control + sleep deprivation = i am a crazy person. ask my hubby 😬 so i am working on embracing this challenging newborn/infant life, accepting it & learning to go with it & reminding myself this is all temporary.. there is light at the end of this tunnel. so if you’re a mama (or anyone really) going through a rough time.. i see you, i feel you! you. are. not. ALONE! happy HUMP day friends !! almost to the weekend! 🙌🏼 . . . outfit details through @liketoknow.it ! http://liketk.it/2zuZd #liketkit #ltkfamily #ltkbaby #ltkkids #ltkunder50 #ltkunder100 #myhonestmotherhood #thebump #candidmotherhood #tiredasamother #teamnosleep #mymamahood #realmotherhood #motherhoodjourney #fourthtrimester #lifeofamom #momswithstyle #thatmomlife #sandiegoblogger #sandiegmom #simplymamahood #unitedinmotherhood #motherhoodthroughig #ohheymamas #mamastakenote #momentsinmotherhood #parenthood_unveiled #rawmotherhood #dailymotherhood

What's the soundtrack playing in your head? . Crazy how every morning, I press play on a workout and listen to the background music on the video or sometimes mute that and put on my own... . but nobody has ever asked me to silence that and pay attention to the soundtrack in my head...until today. . During my 20 minute workout this morning, the trainer stopped talking, stopped the music, and asked me to focus on my self talk...honestly, most of mine had to do with how tired I was and how badly I wanted to stop. Some of the moves were hard, because they're new, and I was feeling frustrated and exhausted. The dialogue in my head reflected it. . He asked me to consciously flip it...make it positive...tell myself I can do it...coach myself through it... . It is AMAZING how different a single move can FEEL with some focus on deliberate thinking. My energy and strength instantly increased when I told myself it was there! . "I have all the strength! I can finish strong!" replaced the complaining about how tired I was. I did finish...and did better than last week! . Knowledge is *potential* power...awareness means you know what you're doing wrong...but it's the action you take to change it that makes you grow...makes you better. . So today, I'm flipping my script! What story are you telling yourself that isn't true? Tell yourself a new one! Change the story! . Change your soundtrack.❤️

I totally want in on your Self Love Club, but I bet it’s too expensive for me! Girl, I totally know that feeling! When I started this journey 9 years ago of working out I wasted so much money on gym memberships that I didn’t use. Then I found my home workouts and bought every single DVD program. It wasn’t until I stuck to my home workouts that I actually started to build the the confidence in myself and really see what self love meant. Self love wasn’t doing hours of cardio, binge eating on the weekends and drinking way too much, no no no! My self love turned in to an amazing journey of workouts that helped not only change my body, but how I eat and how I felt about myself. I switched my workouts to just 30 min a day, some programs were a bit longer, figured out what healthy eating actually looked like and that I didn’t have to deprive myself of things I loved, I just needed moderation. Then I found my mindset of everything changing. My confidence grew because I had more energy and just a spark to me. There’s really no price I can put on this, because that to me is priceless. But to be totally honest with you. The cost is so much more affordable than when I started this journey first wasting money at the gym and then buying dvd after dvd of the new programs because now I get it all streaming on my tv like Netflix for as little as what it costs for Netflix. Hello! How many of you have a Netflix account? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Plus my favorite part is I started this journey alone in a gym trying to figure it out. Now I have an amazing community of women supporting me in this self love movement. 🥰 Now I want to help you with your story! The tools you get when you start your journey with me as your coach are how we get you there and are absolutely worth it! If you’re ready to make a change, let do this together!

So important! So hard to remember sometimes 😩 Anyone else riding the struggle bus with me on this?!

Fitness is my therapy. I don’t workout to be a certain size or a number on the scale. Of course, at times, I’m striving for certain goals and comfort in my own skin is number one, but mentally, without my workouts, you don’t want to cross me !!!🤪 thanks to @fabletics and my new outfit, I’m even more motivated to workout because who doesn’t wanna rock their fashion?! Active wear made SO cute, the most comfortable of any I’ve tried, and their style quiz matched me with exactly what I wanted!

We don’t always love tummy time, but when we do, we prefer it with Llamas. • • • Real Mom Talk: Do you feel the pressure to talk enough, read enough, sing enough, play enough, stimulate your child’s brain enough on the daily? All while somehow fitting in feedings, diaper changes, nap-times, tummy time, bath-times (how many “time” activities are there anyways?) and MAYBE the same for yourself. I certainly do. These can be defined as basic activities, yet all together, occasionally seem overwhelming for this first time mom. I just want to give my baby the best opportunities for growth. For my newborn, this blanket has turned into our favorite tummy time “mat”—I’d like to think because of the additional stimulation of the Black & White contrast images, which she loves. But maybe it just makes me happy, which in turn allows me to positively engage with my baby girl. At the end of the day, I believe giving her love and positive emotions in any form is just as important for her development. Always remember to cut yourself some slack. You’re doing just fine mom. How do you encourage positive emotions for your newborn throughout the day? #realmomtalk

This one has had a rough few nights 😩 Is sleep regression at 2 1/2 a thing? My perfect sleeper (and Anna and Elsa) have ended up in my bed the past 3 nights. Please tell me it will pass!!

My boy. Oh, how I love you. I always thought I wanted a boy first, but I can’t imagine my own plan over God’s perfect timing.

I teared up reading about Peter in Luke 22. I am like Peter. I’m teaching a class on my book “Learning to Walk in Freedom.” I told the class a few weeks ago that I used to pray that God would do whatever He wanted in my life and use me however He wanted. I don’t pray this so much anymore. I feel like praying, “That’s enough, God! I have enough on my plate and can’t handle anything else!” And then of course the sermon that day was on this topic :) Peter was sure he was ready to die for Jesus. I was too at one point. I’m prayerfully working on getting back to that place of full surrender. #womeninministry #lifeofamom

GOOD MORNING🌞 Something I wanted to share..... Going from a stay at home mom to a working mom can most definitely affect your children. When Ayvah wakes up in the morning and doesn't see me, her whole mood changes. She starts crying, whining, cranky and won't give daddy the time of day...at least for the next hour or so. I work 2 part time jobs and I'm away from her at least 3 mornings a week. Me going back to work was based in 2 things..1.MONEY 2.ME TIME. Yet as Ayvah ran to me this morning with the biggest smile, saying MOMMY, my heart melted and broke at the same time. The reality is...time is precious, bills will always be there, your "me time" is when hour kids are sleeping or when they eventually go to school. Children aren't asked to be born and shouldn't be made to feel like a burden. Just remember that there is someone out there wishing they were in your place. #goodmorning #momlife #lifeofamom

Everyone needs a goal right! For some reason unknown to anyone, I seem to be able to build good back muscles! No idea why, but hey I’m not complaining! Let’s just say its good genetics and go from there I love working my back as I know that previously this has happened ☝🏻 which gave me so much self confidence and strength What’s your favourite body part and what goals are you focusing on for 2019? One of my goals is to get this back once again 💪🏻

Happy Wednesday Moms! I’ve been replacing a meal with a green smoothie, and I know it can be difficult digesting green leaves and water. 😆 And one unbalanced ingredient can definitely throw the taste and texture off. • • Green smoothies are surely not for everyone, but with the right combination of ingredients, you just might enjoy it. Breakfast is served! Enjoy your Wednesday Moms! 🤗 #linkinbio #wellnesswednesday #momgoals #greensmoothies #breakfast

It’s so apparent how much of toddlerhood is duplicating what they [toddlers] see from their parents and other adults. It’s just about the sweetest thing. ___________________________ Arielle told me, “I’m writing down food for dinner”. She was so intent on writing recipes for a good 15 minutes- just like this. Melts my heart. 😭 • • • • • • • #toddlerhood#toddlerlife#sahmlife#copying#montessoritoddler#bloggermom#mommyblogger#lifeofatoddler#lifeofamom#family#shopping

But you know, being a mom you have to learn to prioritise on a whole new level. I have personally come to the conclusion that most moms are experts at prioritising. 🏆 Make that call when the baby sleeps, cook supper after you’ve given child 1 play dough which will occupy him for 17.4 minutes. And the list goes on. YOU know exactly what I’m talking about! 👊 . Gone are the days when I’d shower, change and leave. Now, leaving the house with 2 kids in tow becomes an operation of note, with the most important considerations being their tummies and nether regions... if they’ve eaten and have been to the loo, all’s good in the hood, and if not, then so help me Lord! 😏 . How do you all streamline the process of getting out the house with your sanity, voicebox and kids intact? . Aah, and the pic, what’s the picture got to do with this caption; well these are just MY bags that I need to get a good coffee shop session of work in, so you can imagine the amount of bags I’ve got to carry from the house to the car for all of us before we leave... . Moms, we rock right?! 💪

IRL, I never put these pillows here #doingitforthegram 🤣 BUT I am happy to report that I am prepared for future toys with some available storage spaces 💁‍♀️ • Ever feel like you finally have a handle on all the toys and then a holiday or bday comes around the corner pushing that thought right out the window?! Toy baskets keep me sane bc they offer a stylish, easy cleanup. • Another way we stay on top of toy-overload is by packing them away in containers labeled by age. Jett is bound to like the same toys that Mason did so I definitely don’t want to get rid of them, but they won’t be loved for a few more years! I actually had Mason go through his toys asking him what “sparked joy” and we successfully packed up 4 large containers in the attic. Score! • Any other tips/clean up hacks I should know about? Send them my way! XO

Nothing to do!..sleep c baby!let me take a selfie with my red lipstick 💄👑💄 #lifeofamom #motherhood

For cooking day this week, we made Gruffalo Crumble . Victoria's class at @akelc_dubai is reading The Gruffalo's Child this week, so we are doing a mixture of activities for the Gruffalo and also for bears (Elisabeth's class). . Technically, the gruffalo crumble is representative of what one of the characters in the book says the mouse eats - in other words, ground up gruffalo. . Luckily the morbid nature of this didn't translate to our toddlers and they were happy to choose the candies to represent orange eyes, purple spines, and green warts 😬 . . . #eyfs #gruffalo #preschool #agakhanearlylearningcentre #lifeofamom #motherhood #stayathomemom #mom #toddlerhood #toddlerlife #dubai #dubainursery

A morning at school, now it’s time for a break and get some new energy at the gym. Then home and study a little more before it’s time to get the kids from preschool! 🥰 . . . . #students #studentlife #nursestudent #examen2020 #mom #lifeofamom #momstudent #sjuksköterskestudent #workout #nevergiveup

Over the hill and abs. Yeah, I didn’t think it was possible with a 50 pound weight gain after 3 kids either! When I was little I remember OVER THE HILL being old. I remember adults talking about everything going downhill. I remember women giving up on themselves. And now as an adult, 40 years old means nothing! 40 is a number! Actually 42🤘🏻! And I get this question all the time. Do you actually eat? Do you workout 3 hours a day. Ummmmm, yes, j actually eat more now than ever. And I workout less now than ever. But let me make one thing clear. None of it is easy for me. But I have a plan. I have support. I have a team of amazing women that push me every day, and I have a beautiful family to be health for and 3 kids that need their momma around for a long time! I sometimes struggle to stick to my meal plan, I sometimes procrastinate my workout, But I am on a journey, and every day I try to do a little better than the day before. And every day I try to help other women do the same. Because with a plan, with a support system, anything can happen! And I just opened my February #theriseupproject enrollment and I’m taking 8 more ladies on a journey with me! Drop a 💙 below if you want to hear more or shoot me a private message! Spots will fill up! #fortyandfabulous #momssupportingmoms

So lovely to see these mummies finding time to do what they love despite hectic schedules with the kids. 👏 #mumpreneur #brownielovers #lifeofamom #mummyblog #colombomums #mumsincolombo #colombofood #colombofoodie @treatsbysumi

I always wonder why my parents were very strict and particular with our eating and sleeping time back when I was young. Now that I am a parent myself, I realized that eating habits, sleeping timing and good health compliments each other and that all three plays a vital role to one another. I do my best to set a timing for Jessie specifically during weekdays (on her school days) and even weekends. I set a parameter even if its a weekend because I do want to have a consistency and continuity of her routine. Summing it up, EATING early for dinner and Sleeping early at night makes my little girl a HEALTHY KID. Here are three BETTER REASONS why from Mama Jana: 1. BETTER SLEEP - late night or much later time than 6pm meals causes indigestion that interferes with sleep. Some of us thinks that eating at 8pm and sleeping at 10 pm is healthy, that two hours interval is not enough for our food to be well digested by our body, which means, it will give us more light sleep and robs off our deep sleep and REM sleep, which means you wake up more frequently. Light sleep is not healthy. We wanted more deep sleep and at least REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep or commonly known as our dreaming stage. 2. BETTER HEALTH- people who eat late at night tend to eat more. In addition, studies show that late-night munching increases triglyceride levels, a type of fat found in your blood. When you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn't use right away into triglycerides; and high levels may increase your risk of heart attack and stroke. As young as kids age, we do not want them to develop such illnesses as we want them to take good care of their body and maintain their prime healthy self. 3. BETTER ENERGY - for a better head start the next day, enough sleep gives us a full 100% energy to kick start our daily activities. Having said this, if we eat early, we have enough time to digest our food we can sleep much early. Not to mention uninterrupted good night sleep because we won’t encounter any midnight cravings or starving. I hope these 3 BENEFITS enlightened us all! As early as young age, parents, let us do our best to train our kids this healthy practice. Make it a family habit! 😊

Reflecting GOOD VIBES only. I always wanted my baby to look like him and think like me. Prayer heard. She’s always her daddy’s girl. I never knew how great a father could be because I never had one ( never felt the need to have one ) . . . . Even before Ina’s birth his care and concern were all beyond my expectations. Cleaning up my pukes in piles at 3 am for months, breakfast on my bed for days , getting me junk past midnight, freaking out with me on every false alarm. I never expected so much out of him as a father. . . . We had a love marriage - he was good as a partner, better as a husband but he’s the BEST as a father. Diaper change, 1 tbs formula 2 oz warm water, lullabies, strolling, swinging her on arms for hours, sleepless nights, almost crying on every booster, he’s done all this and more without being asked for. . . . I’m not saying he’s a progressive dad. This is what is expected from every dad he’s just playing his part - very very well. . . . PPD had stuck bad on me without him I would have gone insane. He’d dealt with two babies simultaneously. . . . I’m always thankful to him in many ways but I hardly say so here it is. Thank you for things you do and have done for me n Ina. This is not a compliment this is heartfelt. Thank you, we love you skies, fathoms and more💕 . . #indianmomblogger #mumbaimomblogger #mumbaimoms #likefatherlikedaughter #bestdad #abba #dad #lifeofamom #bloggerlife #blessed #thankful #him

So, I've been curious about these sleep pods! I've never used one for my older two daughters but this time around I'm tempted to experiment these new "essentials"... It's one of those things that you don't really need but good for the first few months.. Have any of you used it? What are your thoughts? #sleeppods #babypods #sleepyhead #poddlepod #cosleeping #portablepod #sleeptraining #thirdbaby #lifeofamom #mommyblogger

She loves the snow so much, that coming back inside the house was more than a challenge. Mommy had to run behind her and when I finally managed to catch her and took of her clothes she acted like she was in drama class. *Laying on the ground and crying* #andtheoscargosto #actress #winterwonderland #snow #playingoutside #momoftwo #lifeofamom #lifeofamother #behindthelens  #momlife #instamom #raisinglittlepeople #personalblogger #hijabblogger #hijabi #muslimmom #muslimkids #muslimstyle #moslima #mixedkids #muslima #muslimwoman #happywife
