Kinder sollten nicht nur aktiv sein, sondern sie sollten auch Dinge ausprobieren, die nicht so einfach aber auch nicht hoffnungslos sind. 💜

Do your kids know that the food we eat comes from the farms? Food is our basic necessity & the least importance is given to learning more about it.Even today, very few school focus on this aspect. At @heartandsoil.in we consciously curate outdoor experiences with the objective of fun and learning. 🌽THE FARMER'S DAY OUT scheduled on 3rd August'19 focusses on living a day like a farmer which gives the participants a hands on experience about farming. Let"s help our kids focus on the basic needs building a stronger foundation for the future! #heartandsoil #gentleparenting #slowparenting #getoutdoors #experientialeducation #learn #experientialtravel #experience #earlychildhoodlearning #farming #food #cornplantation #riceplantation #lifeofafarmer #habits #farmerslife #necessity #basicneeds #remember #future #earth #responsibletraveller

[ Why hemp? ] • Hempseed oil was the perfect choice to feature in our all natural, nourishing baby oil 💯 • Hemp is an incredibly sustainable and hardy crop (and I’m talking about the non THC kind here 🙊) that is easy to grow without pesticides and uses little water and land compared to other crops. And although this is not the primary reason, it certainly factors into our sustainability ethos 🌱 • The key reason is simply because the natural make-up of hempseed oil means it is pure magic on the skin (as well as nutritionally - I sprinkle hemp seeds on my breakfast 😋), so it’s no surprise that it’s touted as ’NATURE’S MOST PERFECTLY BALANCED OIL’! ✨ • With just the right amount of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids it replenishes the epidermis, enhances barrier function and sends skin straight to Smooth Town! • So if your little one suffers with dry skin, give our nourishing baby oil a go and banish problem skin for good 👶🏻 👍🏼

Hey there! I haven't been on here much, partly because my camera broke on our way home from vacation, 😭😭😭 and also because I'm trying to be on my phone less (I keep my kids screen-free afterall, I really should live the same way, at least while they're awake). So I've just been here enjoying being present with these two crazies before my big kid has to go back to school in just a few short weeks. I can't believe I have to go school supply shopping already. Where has the summer gone??

This book is literally giving kids a script for bullying. Here’s how we choose books for our home and how our children’s brains process information before age 6. #toddlerbooks #babybooks #montessoribooks #montessori #toddleractivities #respectfulparenting #consciousparenting #slowparenting #attachmentparenting #atruelookatmotherhood #thisismotherly

𝒕𝒉𝒓𝒊𝒇𝒕𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒈𝒔,

Yesterday, I was total boss!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I did 3 loads of laundry, baked bread, took the kids to the park for playdate, stopped for groceries on the way home, got everyone fed, and had both kids napping by 1:30pm. I have a 4-year-old and a 3-month-old, so if you have kids around that age, you know this is 100% MOM GOALS. (thanks for the reminder @laxees.thao) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We were in a groove, the stars aligned, and the whole morning was like some kind of miracle! It was wonderful. I basked. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This morning: all that laundry I did yesterday is paying off because we've had 1 diaper blowout and several major spit ups that have required wardrobe changes for both baby and I. All that before 9:30 in the morning. So, it's all kind of balancing out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So yesterday when I was sharing my mom wins in my Stories, it was a total highlight reel, but I needed that chance to focus on the positive because it is all too easy for me to skip over the wins and dwell on the hard stuff. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Four years ago when my first was a newborn, I spent way more time dwelling in the pits than thinking about what I was grateful for and what was going right. There were good days too, great days, even, but I brushed them off as a fluke, certain that it wouldn't last. I was basically Eeyore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This time around, I'm taking more time to focus on all that is good, easy, joy, and beauty, and that practice is helping to keep me more even-keeled overall during this intense period in my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What about you? Is it easier for you to breeze through the hard days and shake'em off or skip through good days because it's all so hard? Need to talk? I'm here to help you through it all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #3monthold #4yearold #fourthtrimester #motherhoodmyway #motheringthemother #honestlymothering #momguilt #takebackpostpartum #momsofinsta #momtruth #mymotherhood #pregnancyjourney #slowparenting #maternityleave #crunchymom #mynameismama #motheringlikeaboss #selfloveclub #realmotherhood #postpartumdepression #maternalmentalhealth #momsirl

Taking our role (rather than ourselves) seriously is an opportunity to examine our identity as a parent. To get clear on how our unconscious needs and fucked up expectations can so easily become obstacles to our role as caregivers. Our kid’s behaviors don’t need to define our worth as parents or people! ⚡️ Instead, let’s try our damndest to embody our role in the moment and get our personal needs met outside of it. . Here is the official Empowerment, found on our website: “Our sense of self can be intricately connected to our important job as parents. When we are able to separate this role from our self-worth and ego, we give ourselves permission to lighten up, laugh at ourselves, give grace and ultimately grow as people and parents.” Please share your thoughts! 👇🏼 . . #empoweredparenting #showupandgrowup #parentingforsocialchange #feministparenting #respectfulparenting #rieparenting #unconditionalparenting #positivediscipline #simplicityparenting #consciousparenting #slowparenting #thrivenotsurvive #mindfulparenting #jointheupbringing #parenting #parentingpodcast #parentingpodcast #motherhood #parenting #evidencebasedparenting #parentssupportingparents #upbringing

Today on the podcast we explore how to separate what we do from who we are in our most challenging moments as parents. When approaching a tough moment with our kids, are we in WORK-MODE or WORTH-MODE — and how does that impact us all? We ponder the values AND limits of titles (even ‘Mom’) - how they can both empower and undermine our parenting. Taking our role (and not ourselves) seriously requires we become aware of the way our ego can unwittingly limit our ability to care-give. We laugh, we cry, we lean in.

We just bought this incredible print by the talented @gosiaherba. It spoke to us in part because this week’s podcast episode is all about egos, alter-egos and super-egos. It also highlights the benefits of naming/blaming a beloved drunken monster version of ourselves, like Jennifer Lawrence’s “Gail”. What’s yours called? ⚡️ . When you think about it, parenting is one huge fucking conflict of interest. Is it what we do, or who we are? This week’s Empowerment episode explores how we can we grow, learn and engage without over or under-identifying as ‘Mom’. If you’ve had similar moments, share away- you are not alone! 👇🏼 . .

Heute war irgendwie nicht so viel los, wir versuchen den Haushalt vor dem Urlaub auf die Kette zu bekommen, vor allem die Wäsche. Ohne Klamotten reist es sich nicht so gut 🤪😂 Abends einschlafen ist bei dem Wetter auch immer so ein Ding, die Kleinen kämpfen sehr damit. Könnt ihr bei der Hitze gut schlafen? 💤

Journée de grosse chaleur, nous avons profité d'un petit écrin de verdure au bord de l'Ariège 💙. Les enfants ont adoré jeter des cailloux dans l'eau...une activité simple, naturelle, gratuite... offrant de beaux sourires à observer 💕. #slowlife #slowparenting #douceurdevivre #nature #summer #kidsactivities #occupersesenfantspendantlesvacances #prendreletempsdevivre #ralentir

happy tuesday 👋💕 a reminder to get excited about the little things in life. even if it’s just over playing in some water in the front yard ☀️ “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭17:22‬ ‭NLT #enjoythesmallthings #candidchildhood #letthekids #pixel_kids #thepursuitofjoyproject #childhoodunplugged #documentyourdays #documentjournal #illuminatechildhood #our_everyday_moments #simplychildren #littleandbrave #letthembelittle #petitejoys #dailyparenting #slowparenting #cheerfulheart #playinginthewater #waterfunday #happydays

Don't blink because before you know it your babies will be grown. That's what we're told. But we're also encouraged to rush them through their childhood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Is your kid potty trained yet? Is he playing any sports? Do you have her in preschool? Can he read? Is she walking, running, jumping, riding her two wheel bike. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you've ever felt the pressure to push your kids ahead, let that go. You and your kids don't need that added stress. Your kids will develop on their time and you will both enjoy it more if you allow it to unfold naturally. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's one thing you've felt like your kids were behind and tried to do everything in your power to push them ahead? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here's one of mine: My 3rd child was a very late talker. He rarely babbled and didn't say any words for what seemed like FOREVER. I felt the pressure to get him to talk. Nothing I did helped, but when he finally decided he was ready, he talked non-stop. He didn't need intervention or pressure, he needed time. #thehappynow#parenthood #mamamoment#candidchildhood #darlingmovement#letthembelittle #thelittlethings#thatsdarling #dressthemlittle#slowliving #momentslikethese#petitejoys #theartofslowliving#seekthesimplicity #pursuepretty#littlestoriesofmylife #ministylekids#pixel_kids #let_there_be_delight#mamablogger #mamablog #instamom#momswithcameras#motherhoodsimplified #slowparenting

Seit diesem Sommer gibt es in Ö einen Rechtsanspruch auf einen Papamonat für die Zeit direkt nach der Geburt. Entgelt erhält man in dieser Zeit vom Arbeitgeber nicht – kann aber 700€ Familienbonus beantragen. Väter können danach auch in Ö in Karenz (=Elternzeit) gehen, wenn die Familie das will, in verschiedenen Zeitmodellen und der Möglichkeit Geld bis zum 35. Lebensmonat des Kindes zu beziehen. Der Papamonat ist exklusiv für die Wochenbettzeit zusätzlich vorgesehen. Alle Angaben ohne Gewähr 😆 . Ich finde das eine tolle weitere Möglichkeit für Familien zusammenzuwachsen - auch wenn es sicher für die meisten eine ziemlich große finanzielle Einbuße bedeutet… dennoch: die Geburt eines Babys ist einmalig und magisch und Geld kann das niemals aufwiegen 🥰 . und, soweit ich den überblick habe, gehts Familien in Ö im Gegensatz zu vielen Ländern um uns herum, schon recht gut, was Karenzlänge und finanzielle Unterstützung angeht. 🙏🏼 (Ich finde darüber hinaus, dass wir nicht ALLES vom Staat erwarten dürfen... aber das ist ein anderes Thema 🙈) #bedingungsloseelternschaft #schwanger2019 #schwangerschaft #winterbaby #verantwortung #veränderung #vertrauen #verbindung #bedingungslos #motherhoodsimplified #thinktwice #gentleparenting #slowparenting #attachmentparenting #mamablogger #mamablogger_at #blogger_at #igersvienna #echteliebe #elternschaft #eltern #lebenmitkind #bindungsorientiert #bedürfnisorientiert #unerzogen #teamliebe #tochter #achtsamkeit #kindheit

We're a pretty beat up crew currently- punctured foot, split open chin, scraped knees and shins and arms, burned mouths. Considering what adventurous kids they are, it is surprising they are not injured more often! Letting them have the freedom to be adventurous has taught them their abilities and limits and so we usually get away pretty unscathed. It's kinda weird for us to be such a banged up bunch. I blame the planetary alignment more than our choice of activities 😉🤩 but I think we're in need of a few restful healing days!

We talked on Saturday about capsule wardrobes for your children.⁠ They can...⁠ -Reduce the amount of laundry you have to do⁠ -Save you *loads* of time (get it??)⁠ -Help you save a bunch of money⁠ ⁠ Did you know that Bodhi Baby's clothing boxes are capsule wardrobes for your infant?

Fabulous day at the beach 🌊 we went to the park first, then beach.... Built sandcastles, sand cakes.... We plodged and watched a crab, then went to our favourite chip shop, followed by the ice cream shop for Julia 🍦 . . #beach #daysout #seaside #sea #childhood #specialmoments #summerdays #slowliving #innocence #love #slowparenting #slowdays #darlingdaughter #summer #simplejoys #singlemother #chips #singlemotherhood #sunnyday #happiness #daughter #loveofmylife #thisisus #happydays #meandyou #vegan #alwayslearning #motheranddaughtertime #motherdaughter

Не сравнивайте своего ребёнка с другими. Никто не сравнивает солнце и луну. Они светят каждый в своё время.✨ ⠀ ”Don’t compare your child to others. There is no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it’s their time.”✨ ~unknown #oht_life#ohhappytree

En attendant la publication de l'article voici une petite vidéo du dorodango en cours de polissage. Celui ci est fait avec de la terre du potager et des paillettes de lin . C'est une petite activité relaxante qui peut être pratiquée à la maison ou sur votre lieu de vacances. C'est l'occasion d'explorer la nature des terrains qui vous entourent. Il vous faudra trouver de la terre argileuse.

“Nature invites authentic play- the best kind of play for young children. Authentic play is fun, open ended, self-directed and freely chosen. Authentic play occurs naturally when children and nature are brought together.” Shortly after this photo she ate said leaf.🤷🏽‍♀️ But we love being outside, playing without an agenda and making new friends. What did you do the last time you enjoyed nature?

#alittlestillmagic ❤️A photo❤️ a little snippet of childhood, a still moment frozen in time, a little piece of our precious life that would have been gone and passed if it weren’t for that snap of a camera. That beautiful capture that you can now go back and cherish forever. When your babies are old and grown, you can look back on these exact moments and you can show them their sweet faces, their smiles, their perfect expressions, and the treasured moments you lived with them. 🤗 This is why I love photography. I may not be a professional and my photos may never be in a famous gallery somewhere, but these photos are mine and these photos are and forever will be cherished more than I can express. 🥰 💫To see our collection of everyday magic little still moments, go through our #alittlestillmagic tag or go to the next mama to make your way through the loop.

Mommy and Baby CSA baskets! Thanks for the cute idea/inspiration @bloomsburyfarm 🥬❤️ Our CSA members are bringing home a bunch of delicious homegrown food this week! We’re sending them on their way with pork burgers from @wildfarmsoap and round steaks from @thebarniowa along with our summer produce: rainbow carrots, collard greens, romaine lettuce, lacinato and curly kale, eggplants, hot peppers, new potatoes, beans, swiss chard, scallions, and young onions. YUM! The Country Store is open today 10AM-6PM, and we have that plus MORE yummy veggie goodness! Cucumbers, kohlrabi, and zucchini. Hooray for summer! #uatrxwildfarmcsa

🌈ICE BLOCK PAINTING❄️ It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday so, while TJ napped, Zack and I painted this ice block on the grass 💛 . I made it a few days ago (I actually forgot about it until yesterday!) by just filling a plastic food storage container with water and sticking it in the freezer. . We enjoyed painting one side with watercolours and watching the paint freeze at the beginning...of course the longer we painted out in the heat, the ice block eventually started to sweat and the paint wouldn’t freeze dry anymore (which you can actually see on my rainbow in the first pic: the colours just kept bleeding on the right). It was actually pretty cool just “tye-dying” and blending the colours together as it melted. When one side was maxed out we flipped it and painted the other side. . And when zack started losing interest, I just rinsed off the ice block and stuck it back in the freezer to reuse another day!

Being this little honey’s mama is more than my wildest dreams. Really, it is! And even so I sometimes buy the lie that I have missed the boat and that everyone is sailing away to success without me. But here is the truth: Fomo, shame, fear, and isolation DO NOT WIN and DO NOT GET TO OWN MY STORY. I do! So I’m going to be here. Owning where I am, who I am, and what I am good at. Also, you may find me kissing the mess out of that little face because COME ON 😍 • Link to this week’s Vlog is in my bio.

Les bébés, c'est des good vibes! On est programmées pour les aimer je crois 😊, même ceux des autres je veux dire.

Assez impressionnée, mais il y a avait une copine à elle. Donc ça aide a se sentir bien😉!

Baby Brother's eviction date has been scheduled. We're keeping a close eye on my very slow weight gain and making sure that despite it, he's growing. He won't be a whopper, he's not going to be full of rolls but just like his dainty older brother, he'll be perfect. I'll get those rolls on him when he's Earth Side; just two days past his brother's birthday. #herecomesbabybrother #seeyouinseptember . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mommymoments #feelthefeelings #littlehumans #our_everyday_moments #themommydiary #ohmamamoment #momblog #thecandidclass #treasuringlittlememories #aquietstyle #slowmotherhood #motherhoodrising #seekthesimplicity #mamatribe #momentsinmotherhood #lifeasmama #igw_light #stopdropandmom #thatauthenthicfeeling #thatsdarling #littlehumans #oneofthebunch #cutelittleinspo #mumswithhustle #cameramama #slowparenting

Mas afinal o que é a Parentalidade Consciente?Quais são as ideias chave da educação mais consciente ? "A principal diferença entre parentalidade consciente e a corrente mais tradicional é que , na primeira,olhamos para a criança no seu todo ( emoções, opiniões, desejos, necessidades) e não apenas para o seu comportamento. O foco está em entender e não em corrigir o comportamento. Estamos conscientes que, através deste olhar inteiro conseguiremos perceber o que é realmente necessário para que o comportamento se altere. Quando queremos praticar parentalidade consciente não fazemos coisas aos nossos filhos, fazemos coisas com eles. Amamo-los não pelo que fazem mas pelo que são. Na Parentalidade Consciente nao procuramos encontrar técnicas que funcionem. Queremos criar relações fortes que permitem um saudável desenvolvimento de todas as partes envolvidas". Mikaela Övén

N e x t t i m e when your child is cranky, notice where your thoughts are. It is extremely important for your child that you listen to her stories and watch her play. Be in the same room with your child, not only physically but also mentally. . For a child the quality of the time spend together is even more important than the quantity. . Even a baby can sense if you're there for her. If you're really there. . Every one of us has those days when your mood is bad and thoughts are elsewhere. Try to accept that also and just try your best. That's enough. . Try to be present. Perhaps your everyday life gets easier. ☀️ . 📸:@nikistrbian . . . . . #momflow #momflows #momlife #motherhood #parenthood #simplymamahood #justbaby #moments #mobile #mobilephone #offline #time #play #story #storytellers #toddler #liveinthemoment #child #children #slowparenting #slowparentingmovement

💣TRUTH BOMB TIME💣 Today I'd like to chat about the importance of having a well rounded diagnosis and the impact it can have. When my daughter was 2 we went for the maternal health appointment. After speaking with us for 10 minutes and doing her 'checks', the nurse asked if my daughter had any anxiety? I was taken aback and fumbled out my reply," oh, what do you mean? she does get shy around strangers". She suggested that I should expose her to more "new things" which would help with her anxiety. She then proceeded to write in her green book "mild separation anxiety". I wrapped up that appointment quickly and as I walked home crying on the phone to my hubby, I remember saying something like, "I have f$cked her up". It was a heavy moment of Mumma guilt. Here are my issues with what went down: - that nurse had NEVER met my child before - she judged and diagnosed after my daughter didn't say hello - she did not inquire about her personality - she did not ask or take into account what was happening in the home to impact on my child's resistance (she had been up 4 hours the night before, I had just come home with a newborn (who was actually at the same appointment), I was breastfeeding and I had undiagnosed post natal depression and daily anxiety challenges). Yep, a cluster f*ck of compounding factors, so no wonder she had "separation anxiety"....or perhaps just very appropriate behaviour under the circumstances. I never took her back there again and it took alot of support from my beautiful mother's group, friends and family to reassure me. I did report the incident many months later, in an attempt to help other families avoid the same experience. Now, I am not saying that there is anything wrong with being diagnosed with a mental illness. I am trying to remove the stigma around it each and every day. But what I have an issue with, is that someone who is not in a position to diagnose, did so and labelled her without being fully informed or concerned about it's impact. I would like to open up this can of worms and delve a bit deeper, Have you had a similar experience?

On all our past journeys, and in our lives in general really, we came to realize that we're better off without a strict plan. That is when abundant life happens. Like in this case ☝️We met some young locals who arranged a boat trip for us. We had an entire beautiful boat just for ourselves to enjoy Skadar Lake. Afterwards we had the best fish meal ever, the fish caught by one of the locals' dad and perpared by his mother. The magic of things you simply cannot plan. // In the haste of everday life I sometimes forget about this but I hope to take it with me further on this time ...

Ein bisschen mehr Liebe und Geborgenheit hat noch niemandem geschadet. 💜

Itt az ideje, hogy az oviba készülő nagyfiú megismerkedjen a gyurmával. :) És az biztos, hogy folytatjuk majd a mókát!

MEIN GROSSES MÄDCHEN ❤ Du bist so ein fröhliches und chaotisches Wesen, dass es mich manchmal überfordert dir gerecht zu werden.. aber das warst du immer schon.. du hast unser Leben ganz schön auf den Kopf gestellt 🤪 Und jetzt wirst du schon bald 5 und dein letztes Kindergartenjahr fängt an.. wo ist die Zeit nur hin? 😥 du bist schon so selbstständig, nimmst dir alleine etwas zu trinken, machst dein Frühstück und hilfst mir sogar (manchmal 😅) die Wäsche zusammenzulegen. Du machst dir immer Sorgen ob dein Bruder sich verletzen könnte oder ihm erwas wehtut, wenn er weint.. du bist sehr führsorglich und obwohl ich das so sehr an dir schätze, wünsche ich mir oft dass du unbeschwerter im Alltag bist. Aber das wärst dann vielleicht nicht mehr du!? 🤔 Ich frage mich oft ob dir die Zeit mit mir reicht, denn nur zu zweit sind wir selten.. und trotzdem hast du auch für das viel Verständnis... zu viel Verständnis und Sorgen für deine nicht Mal 5 Jahre und trotzdem hast du immer ein Lächeln im Gesicht und freust dich auf jeden neuen Tag und jede neue Herausforderung! Ich bin so glücklich dass ausgerechnet DU meine Tochter bist.. du hast mich zur Mama gemacht und dafür bin ich dir unendlich dankbar! #daughter #momlife #attachmentparenting #instamom #instakid #toddler #chaot #fürsorge #glück #dankbar #slowparenting #mommyanddaughter #momblogger #instagirl #woistdiezeitgeblieben #liebe #liebeaufdenerstenblick #emilia #mima #mimalex

𝒅𝒂𝒅𝒔 𝒘𝒉𝒐 𝒔𝒌𝒂𝒕𝒆 🤙

𝐷𝐼𝑌 𝑅𝐴𝐼𝑁𝐵𝑂𝑊 𝐵𝐿𝑂𝐶𝐾𝑆 🌈 A week ago Davide and I got to work making these beautiful rainbow blocks for our darling Eva’s first birthday gift. They have taking us more time than we imagined 😅 but they have also been such a blessing to us as it’s been a while since we worked on a creative project together since moving over seas. . I was admittedly a bit disappointed at the stage of sanding them, as some were looking quite uneven, chipped and different sized. I wanted them to be perfect, better than the store bought ones! . It might of been the Holy Spirit that reminded me that imperfection isn’t always a bad thing, and that in fact, it’s probably the “different” looking blocks that Eva will be interested in the most and will be the most memorable. . Looking at them all here drying I feel very pleased and satisfied and proud of Davi and I. Also hope that Eva actually plays with them a lot too at some stage 😂 . If you want to know how we made them just ask ☺️ . #diywoodtoys #diyblocks #diytoys #diymontessoritoys #rainbowtoys #waldorftoys #waldorfplay #playspiration #slowparenting #handmadeblocks #naturalwoodblocks #montessoristyle #montessoriathome #fromaplaceoflove #homemade #toyrotation #toddlertoys #babytoys

Kids & Tarefinhas✨: Há que por estas mini pessoas a trabalhar from day one, porque senão rapidamente se tornam em pequenos ditadores que nem um obrigado dizem ⚠️ Não digo escravizá-los, nem pô-los a vender brigadeiros nas passadeiras, mas começarem a perceber que têm de arrumar os brinquedos 🛹 depois de os usar, que podem também ajudar a fazer a cama, tirar a loiça da máquina ou até mesmo pôr a mesa 🍽 (sim, com talheres e pratos a sério, don’t worry mães galinha, só lhes dá sentido de responsabilidade e eles adoram ir todos direitinhos e devagarinho a segurar os copo de vidro). From day one não digo, porque eles mal se mexem, mas a partir dos 2 anos começam a ser eles próprios a querer imitar-nos e a querer começar a ajudar. E porque é que é tão importante estas miniaturas de gente fazerem alguma coisa pela casa? Porque se sentem seguros, confiantes e aprendem a partilhar. E há que aproveitar a onda do “não, eu consigo/não, eu faço sozinho”, porque aos 14 anos quando realmente precisarmos que nos vão à garagem buscar um cesto de lenha 🔥 temos de os ameaçar com cortes de mesada 💸 se não levantarem o rabo do sofá em 3, 2, 1… Miudos que crescem a ajudar a manter uma casa arrumada e a partilhar tarefas 🧹 serão adultos que automaticamente irão fazer copy paste daquilo que já vem cá dentro. Isto é particularmente importante no caso dos filhos rapazes, porque o comum ainda é verem a mãe a fazer tudo por todos e se há coisa que eu não quero é ter um filho enconstado e daqueles nabos que não sabe fazer nada! Já me bastaram alguns dos flatmates que tive ao longo da vida! Aqui esta personagem da foto pede sempre para ir a este supermercado porque tem carrinhos do tamanho dele 🛒, quer ser ele a ir buscar tudo o que está na lista 📋 e já me fez passar vergonhas porque não o deixei por as compras no tapete porque estava cheia de pressa. 🤦🏽‍♀️ It’s the small things that matter, tarefinha aqui, tarefinha ali e quando derem por vocês já eles fazem um 3 course meal michellin style 🛎, sem qualquer orientação….e ainda deixam a cozinha a brilhar no final! 🥳 #beatransformnation

|Werbung¦ Wir haben uns heute schön gemacht weil wir 2 jetzt einen Mädels ausflug nach Wien machen. Ich brauche eine neue Babytrage die nicht so heiß ist und wo ich nicht immer so lange warten muss bis ich rein kann und ein Baby Trapez will Mama auch für mich besorgen, aus Holz versteht sich 👌 und weil ich Mamas Figur ein bisserl zerstört habe braucht sie dringend neue Leggins 🙈 aber erst geht's mal zu @buzzidil für mich 🤗🤗🤗

My kids start out slow on hikes (this is a euphemism. There's a lot of whining. Hence the four-year-old in the backpack). But eventually they get warmed up. One good trick is getting them to carry along something heavy. They always walk happily if they have a rock or stick they're excited about. Hey, we all need a purpose, right?! #optoutside #magicofchildhood #slowparenting #childhoodunplugged #naturechild #kidsinnature #outdoorlife #outdoorkids #outdoorfamilies#outdoorplay #hikeitbaby

Kids will give you lesson after lesson if you allow them. • This girl wanted her gorgeous long baby gold locks cut. “It’s hot and itching my neck; it’s hard to brush; I want it short.” Internally I received these words like a knife to the heart. My baby who has been growing that hair forever wants it cut. ✨For me it feels like she’s cutting away her baby-self and I don’t feel ready for that. ✨ She’s only ever gotten it trimmed by her Grammy who isn’t here anymore to do that and I don’t feel ready to fully accept that yet. ✨ I love how her long hair looks braided, or in a messy bun, or trailing down her back. ✨✨But it’s not about me, or my hair, or my feelings, or my body. So we went to a kid’s haircut place and it’s been the highlight of her week. And it’s not itching her neck anymore and it makes her blue eyes somehow look even bigger and brighter. • Check out my stories for some pics of the event. 😊 • • • #simplicityparenting #simplicityparentingcoach #slowchildhood #unconditionalparenting #attachmentparenting #honestmotherhood #slowparenting #intentionalparenting #gentleparenting #magicofchildhood #childhoodunplugged #preservechildhood #wildandfreechildren #runwildmychild #largefamily #perfectlyimperfect #everydaymagic #consciousparenting #consciousmama #letchildrenmakechoices #kidsteachus #raisinglittles #raisinggoodhumans #crunchymama #itsherhair

I know I know. You’ve got ALL.THE.THINGS on your To-Do list. It’s heavy. But the truth is, the to-do list is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to overwhelm. It’s right in front of us...it’s easy to see, measure, and check boxes. Truth be told, the real weight of the iceberg lies under the surface. It’s just not so visible at first glance. When it comes to having a busy brain, we can have misconceptions about exactly where the mental clutter is coming from. • Does this resonate with you? We are talking about this on the podcast this week AND The Mental Unload starts Thursday. Are you joining us? 🙌🏻

I was scrolling around on Instagram the other day and saw all these beautiful photos and feeds. Full of beautiful, immaculate homes. And I found myself trapped in that evil comparison game social media often inspires. ⠀ ⠀ I looked around our own home. Far from perfect, in desperate need of repairs, upgrades, and renovation. In a constant state of manageable disarray and found myself saying “I’ll never be like her.” “If her home is that immaculate and she has X kids, maybe I’m not so minimalist after all.” ⠀ ⠀ Then, I squashed those words andreminded myself..... Our home is lived in, and I may not have perfectly staged photos or the perfect decor. But, what I lack in that... I make up for in life. ⠀ ⠀ Our home is full of laughter, memories, love. ⠀ ⠀ There may be blocks scattered in the background to make a road. My dog may have drug his bone out of the corner and knocked over a tower. But, we live here. We are making a life here. ⠀ ⠀ We may have more things than someone else. But, our home is never chaotic. It’s always manageable and quickly tidied. ⠀ ⠀ Because Minimalism is different for everyone. What works for our family may not work for yours, and that’s okay. ⠀ ⠀ It’s all about intentionality. Purpose. And making room for what matters. ⠀ ⠀ And for us? That’s blocks scattered in the floor, towers built of legos and a large supply of grace. Because perfectionism never looked good on anyone. ⠀ ⠀ Live your life... even if it’s full of messes. Your kids will remember these moments. Not blank walls and clean floors. ⠀ ⠀ #reallife #motherhoodunplugged #keepitreal #realmotherhood #motherhoodrising #messy_motherhood #our_everyday_moments #minimalism #minimalist #ig_minimal #lifedailymoms #minimalmom #slowparenting #mindfulmama #wildandfreekids #slowchildhood #ohheymama #stopcomparing #choosehappiness #focusonyou #momlife #childhoodunplugged

We finished up Understood Betsy, and honestly I’m so sad that it took me 38 years to read it. It was so beautiful, and I’m struggling to adequately express my love for it. I just got started on Book Girl by @sarahwanders which gets me all giddy because I’m a total Clarkson Family fangirl. Add in a secret crochet project for a friend and peach mint booch in a unicorn mug, and the afternoon is looking great! 💜

𝒔𝒂𝒏𝒅𝒚 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒅𝒐𝒘𝒔 ~ there is something spesh about sunny winter days at the beach 🌾

My sunshine ☀️ . Every day I try to remember to sit with my children, look them in the eye, and tell them that I love them. No strings attached. I love them simply because they are. Whether they are being bad or being good, I love them just the same. . I do this because it's what my heavenly Father does for me. If I would just take the time to sit with Him and listen, he would remind me that I am wholly loved, not for what I do but simply because I am. . The most heartbreaking thing I can conceive of for my children isn’t that they would undergo suffering and hardship, but that they would go through this life believing that they are unloved. . The God of the universe loved them so much that he was willing to give up his only son to die on their behalf. Imagine if every moment of their lives were seen through this lens, with a deeply rooted understanding their immeasurable worth and value as beloved children of God?

Petit coco qui s’émerveille devant tout,et moi qui essaie de faire la même chose devant les petites choses de la vie. ✨

Oh Dahhling...

SLOW PARENTING With so much going on after we moved, I really treasure days like this where we go real slow and I take extra time to follow my child. . . Slow parenting has lots of benefits and if time or circumstances allow, I would greatly encourage it. It has allowed me to: - observe and not intervene with my child’s play. - respect her play and decisions-making. That, I believe, helps them in developing critical thinking as they grow. - be a responsive parent instead of a reactive one, even in risky situations. . - look deeper into my child’s needs, be it developmental or emotional. - savor precious moments with my child. . Here, Em and I were sitting by the pond watching this man fish as the time went by ‘cause she didn’t want to leave. . #owmontessorifamily #howwemontessori #montessoriathome #montessoritoddler #montessori #sgmontessori #playathome #kidsactivities #sgmoms #sgparents #parenting #momsofinstagram #kidsofinstagram #practicallife #practicallifeskills #preparedenvironment #preparedadult #cultivatingspaces #sahm #slowparenting

Summer life - our boys are so busy these days like this - our romantic babies, who always love picking flowers to give away 💗like father like son 💞#liveauthentic #livemoremagic #magicofchildhood #magicofeveryday #theartofslowliving #slowliving #slowparenting #parenting #country #countryliving #countrylife #wildflowers #flowerlovers #naturelovers

It’s hard to believe that it’s only a few more weeks of just the three of us. I can’t even begin to imagine what it will be like as a family of four (five with our furry friend) and what he will be like. One thing is for sure, he is going to be so loved by his big sister. Now if only we could decide on a name... #31weekspregnant

Today has been lots of fussing, a failed library outing, a sleepy baby and mama and most recently poopy hands. 🥴 I’m feeling all kinds of worn out today but then I look back at this face and remember how luck I am to be her person.

Our homeschool word for this year: COURAGE 🙏💚This has been one of my favourite Chronicles Of Narnia quotes since I was a little girl and read The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader for the first time. I couldn’t believe it when I saw Natalie from @raising_up_wild_things with this same quote on her wall, the day I’d decided to put this up in our school room. Felt like another sign that it was the perfect focus for our homeschooling. It can be tough for our little family of 2 sometimes. Single parenting, running a business and chronic illness issues can lead to overwhelm and anxiety (constantly😏). So taking on homeschooling midway through last year after thinking it wouldn’t be a feasible choice for us, was really intimidating despite it being what we’d always wanted. As we head into our first full year of homeschooling, I know there’ll be pitfalls and we’ll stumble in the dark at times. But maybe with Aslan’s words I can embrace my inner Lucy and we’ll have an incredible year all round. Here’s hoping!😉🙏💚 . . . . . . . #homeschooldays #homeschoolcollective #homeschoolmom #homeschoolers #homeeducation #homeschoolcommunity #thisishomeschool #homeschoolfamily #homeschoolfun #homeschooler #charlottemasonliving #charlottemason #inspiredlife #slowparenting #waldorfhomeschool #living_homeschool #homeschoollife #childledlearning #homeschoolingbyheart #homeschoolroom #simplymotherhood #charlottemasonhomeschool #intentionalhomeschooling #homeschoolinspiration #learningathome #homeschoolrocks #ourhomeschooljourney


Déjà la tête en vacances, j’en ai oublié de vous partager ma dernière réflexion sur la thématique « je fais de mon mieux » . On lit de nombreux livres, on suit des tas de conférences, d’ateliers... la théorie est parfaitement su. Interrogation surprise sur la Parentalité bienveillante: 20/20 et quand on passe à la pratique il y a des jours aussi c’est l’excellence et d’autres où on aurait envie de se mettre sur la tête le bonnet d’âne. . Passer de la théorie à la pratique est tellement difficile dans de nombreux domaines car cela vient travailler sur nos habitudes, nos mécanismes, nos croyances, nos transmissions... et tant que nous ne travaillons pas sur tout cela il sera difficile d’être aussi excellent qu’à la théorie. . Alors il ne faut pas oublier que l’on fait de son mieux chaque jour, que l’on grandit et que l’excellence n’existe pas. « Un jour j’irais vivre en théorie car en théorie tout se passe bien » . #parentzen #parentalitepositive #slowparenting #parentaliteslow #educationpositive #accordstolteques

Post-bath-pre-bed stories. We tell Hal stories from our imagination each night before sleep, mainly revolving around one of our cats being a pirate and sailing the Seven Seas. He lies with rapt attention, silent until we pause and he asks quietly, 'what happened next, Daddy?' He remembers all the scenarios and delights in telling us his own version of events (partly a classic, yet very endearing delay tactic, that I'm sure most parents are familiar with! ) Stories and language are so important to us as a family, and to us as human beings, reading and creating stories for our littlies has been one of my greatest pleasures since becoming a Mama ❤️ . . #motherhoodunplugged #gentleparenting #montessoriathome #montessori #montessoriinspired #tinytinymoments #momentsofmine #thatsdarling #embracingaslowerlife #littlestoriesofmylife #slowparenting #readtoyourkids #seekinspirecreate #poetryofsimplethings #thehappynow #gowildandslow #thelittlethings #howstheserenity #calmversation #earlyyearslearning #qualitytime #inspire #childhoodunplugged #childhood #tellingstories

River days here are always a good confirmation that Ive chosen a good path for my kids. They like this spot more than I do, because its a popular spot for families coming up from the cities nearby so there's always new kids to meet. My kids spend the day meeting everyone, having conversations with adults, playing with kids of all ages, teaching them how to rope swing or climb trees or build forts or climb rocks, coaxing them into the water and showing them how you can ride the waterfall rapids. Many people negatively judge my decision to homeschool, but when I see them out there, excited to be spending their days in nature, so sure of their bodies and abilities, able to meet new people and get along well with people of all ages, all the compliments they recieve or I recieve about them, exhibiting all those good character words that make a mama proud- courage, determination, perseverance, kindness, etc., I feel proud that my kids are experiencing this unschooled childhood. We dont fit in society's box of what is right and correct and that is a problem for a few people we know, but it comes down to what I think is important for my kids, and I would rather them know this freedom and happiness than be stuck in that box. Id rather them be able to spend hours problem solving how to build a teepee on the beach than have all the dates of historical events memorized because these unschooled skills will be more relevant in their future. Id rather them be able to meet and get along with groups of all ages everywhere we go than learn how to maneuver school relationships because the ability to do that is more beneficial to their future. Its all perspective I guess, but river days are always good confirmation for me.
