So I gave my mother the go ahead to pick up a kennel for Salsa while I was at work so I can start kennel training her & I really did not expect her to like it at all but she loves it. I put her in there and right away she went to sleep. Tonight is the first night of her not sleeping in my room and I was not prepared for how much I cried😭 as much as it is tiring waking up every couple of hours because I hear her moving or barking in her sleep & then getting up at 5-6am every morning, I already miss her & I probably won’t sleep tonight because I’ll be so worried about her. 😪 #growinguptoofast
How cute is Aubree she’s growing up way to quick! Where has the last few years gone! Time has definitely flown by and I love this little princess so much #notababyanymore#growinguptoofast#princess #littleangel… https://www.instagram.com/p/CA0YXUKh9lg/?igshid=1ghsrpb718m7z …
Can't believe half a year has gone by since this little one has entered our lives. What a fun ride it's been watching her change every single day. We love you Naomi 💕
My baby isint a baby anymore 😭 First night in her big girl bed & she went straight to sleep 🖤 Can't wait for the canopy curtains to get here to complete the cutest little mermaid room 😍🧜♀️

Our young children (0-7yrs) yet do not understand the concept of class, gender, race fully but can surely be ‘projecting’ 'discrimination' in their outwardly behavior. When we begin to look at it from ‘adult lenses’ we may find it based on class/gender/caste/outer beauty/race etc. This could happen with children when they are choosing friends to play with, sharing toys or meals
If they are, it is time for us adults to ‘not to talk’ about the issue, but turn around and inwardly look within ourselves and observe closest adults around the child
Our starting point could be reflecting on how we treat our helpers at home. Our inward thoughts towards them are as important as ‘outward’ gestures at home. And well post that there are enough things to reflect upon- our thoughts and actions towards other communities/faiths/gender/sexuality etc
Children between the ages of 0-7 yrs project attitudes and behaviours we (parents primarily) carry (outer world is yet to have a stronger influence on children between 0-7 yrs) and to change that we have to change ourselves. We may use simpler form of speech followed by an action if required
When the child is often calling another child ‘moti’ (fat)- the parent gently reminds ‘we will call everyone by their names’
When your child is not letting another classmate/friend join their game, you could say ‘We all play together in this house/kindergarten”
Parent gets up, leads the ‘left out’ child into the play area of children & says it to the group- “your xyz friend will help you all by serving in the restaurant” (the game children are playing)
Let’s remind ourselves that young children are beings of imitation.
Their habits are not yet formed through ‘consequences’, ‘conversation’ or ‘explanation’ but purely through ‘absorbing’ the closest environment they live in

I cannot wait for this to dry so it can be hung up! I never thought he would build this without me. Goodness. #tearsniffle#growinguptoofast #mysweetboy#usapuzzle #usa#modpodge https://www.instagram.com/p/CA09-e6g7uWrlY8CBVB2EU5qyZ2HlPsEIZIoik0/?igshid=nma0cgugrjoi …
First - ain’t me and the puppy cute - swipe >>> but this is really what it looks like with me and the velociraptor - swipe ->>> because this beast of a dog was 11 weeks in @fit_fat_dad arms(on the right side) and today 14 weeks (on the left) he’s growing SUPER quickly - swipe >>>> we are working on crate training the puppy and this was the happiest the cat has been in three weeks. Also might be the most relaxed he’s been too. - swipe >>> but isn’t he so cute when he’s tired and sleeping with his teddy bear (which was his sisters) .
And this is what has kept me busy for the last three weeks. .

4 years ago... I started my freshman year of high school. I thought to myself “Wow, I’m going to be stuck here for so long. It’s going to feel like 20 years went by when I start college.” But now... It’s practically over and it felt like I just started yesterday. I have no clue where the time went but is it too late to ask for it back? High school is pretty much completed and I’m so upset that it is. I did many things in High School that really made me grow as a person! Making high honor roll 6 quarters in a row, making friends I know will last my entire life, and the astronomical amounts of shows I did is staggering. Senior year was definitely the best year of high school for me! To all the underclassmen, I’m telling you right now, Senior year is the fricking bomb! At least mine was since I didn’t have to stress over finals and do homework at my own paste. But not being able to see my friends whenever I wanted and delaying graduation was a bit of a bummer. Who cares though? Because summer is just around the corner and hopefully quarantine will be over soon. But in just a couple months, I’m going to be in college, all on my own, and a legal adult. So I’m just going to leave you off with this: Enjoy the precious time you have being young, cause once reality punches you in the face, recovering from a hit like that will be a lengthy process that only makes you stronger! #school#highschool#senioryear#schoolisout#school2020#farmingdale#farmingdalehighschool#fhs#honorrollstudent#growingup#growinguptoofast#timeflies#enjoybeingyoung#itsallover#nextchapter#movingon#memories#neverforget#goodtimes#friends#fun
Happy 19th Birthday to the sweetest young man I know (who I’m lucky enough to have as my son). You are loved and the world (as crazy as it may be right now) is yours to conquer. I love you so much Jacob!! ❤️🎂🥰 #happybirthday#proudmom#growinguptoofast#luckymom
Hey there you little angel, happy 7 months! #myratan#babyboy#7months#growinguptoofast #timeflies#motherhood https://www.instagram.com/p/CAxI5JmnBxItun9X63tBR5cNVL9RDsQ93EeNZo0/?igshid=kkrm7p0p03nu …
Today is technically the last day of #2ndgrade although not at all how we had pictured at the beginning of the year! I also may have cried - and may be crying while writing this. #forevermybaby #growinguptoofast… https://www.instagram.com/p/CAyAFfFFj-K/?igshid=jjivyt5vymb4 …
So this happened today! It’s June and this girl turns 17 in exactly one week so it was time! She was pretty shocked and in true Jaelee fashion, a little speechless. I have never seen a teenager truly worry about the amount of money that his/her parents spend on them, but this one does. She will hopefully have her full license by the end of summer so I have a another month or two until the daily worry starts😬 I just pray she’s a better driver on her own than I was at her age!😆 Shoutout to Jeff and Carole for taking the time to get her all set up and to Justin and the Big M staff for helping to find what this girl needed👏🏻👏🏻 J’s a lucky girl who is so very loved💓 And here I am just feeling like she is still 9 and not even close to driving or college.😭
Exactly 1 year ago we found out Ivy was going to be a girl! For me that's when it all became so real, I finally knew who she was! We actually named Ivy this day as well. I had gotten covered in Poison Ivy rashes during pregnancy, when I had never reacted to Poison Ivy in the past! As Drew and I were cleaning up from the party, I jokingly said "we should name her Ivy, yenno, since she gave it to me!". He laughed and jokingly agreed. Now here we, so blessed to have truly known our Sweet Ivy for 1 year 💕
