Emotional safety is found within relationships that are trustworthy. .
Trust is built by consistency - when your child knows they can depend on you. .
Don’t underestimate the power of continually showing up in your child’s life 💛

I normally like to keep opinions to myself but raising these 3 boys of mine I feel compelled to share this.
My boys have a monthly magazine subscription called Boys Life. They absolutely love reading it each month as it’s got pictures of cool animals and the outdoors, wildlife, games and activities.. you name it. The last one they got had a picture of a girl on it talking about Girl Power. I was a little taken back. Because while I absolutely love all of these women’s rights movements, girl power, and women’s equality it made me wonder. Are we forgetting about our boys? Are we empowering them just as much? I’m trying to raise 3 gentlemen that understand they can be anything they want to be. They can work hard towards doing anything they want to do. And they will be raised to treat women with respect but it all comes from empowering them as well.
Now many of you could say their monthly magazine subscription called “Boys Life,” could be for girls as well. Yes- absolutely. For any girl that likes the outdoors, bugs, dirt and stuff like that she may like these magazines. But I feel like our media is stripping our boys away from feeling empowered themselves. My boys’ feelings and confidence is just as important as my daughters’ feelings and confidence. I’m not looking for a debate as this could go so many ways. But all I’m saying is we can’t leave our boys behind. I certainly won’t let it happen. #boymom

This picture is cute right? Haha except getting this shot gave me straight family photo ptsd... All this to say, a lot of times(especially with toddlers) things don’t go according to plan. You have this picture perfect image in your mind COMPLETELY forgetting this image includes tiny humans. And well, if it includes balloons(or 4) you’re screwed because 2 will fly away, 1 will pop and your kid will break the other.
Grateful to be their mom, but reminding you and myself that it’s ok if it’s NOT perfect. Give yourself a pat on the back for showing up, even if it’s 10 minutes late🤷🏻♀️
I spent the majority of Finnley’s little life thinking, “this is it. I just don’t think I can handle another.” To be honest, going from 1-2 kids rocked me. It still does some days. (Please don’t let this scare you- everyone’s experience is different.) Eden was a super compliant babe, so when we decided we wanted another baby, I imagined it being more to juggle but nothing too much more beyond that. I clearly had way too high of expectations. The joy of these two have far outweighed the sorrow but I spent many days feeling like an utter failure. I never struggled with losing my patience before Finnley was born. I was always pretty cool and collected. I always thought I was a great multitasker and good at juggling multiple things- I definitely wouldn’t use those words to define myself anymore. But I’ve learned that that’s okay. In having kids I’ve lost myself but I’m proud to say that I’ve also found myself again. Through much prayer and late nights talking my husband and with friends, and asking for help, I’ve learned how to set boundaries for myself so I don’t snap at my kids (trust me I’m not perfect and fail sometimes.) I’ve learned to lower my expectations and realize that my children are learning. They’re 1 & 3 and are still finding their emotions and learning how to handle themselves. I’ve learned that failing is okay, and tomorrow is a new day. Admitting that you can’t do it all is hard. I’m someone who likes to be able to do it all- but honestly I can’t, and with young kids maybe we just can’t do it all. And that’s okay. Having two kids has caused me struggle, a whole lot. But I’ve also grown so much. And learned so much. And now, despite the many months convincing myself that two kids was all I wanted- I’m left yearning for another soul to hold in my arms. His grace is sufficient and sometimes things just take time.💛 (picture with Finn in my tummy- I’m not pregnant yet😉)

Раньше, будучи городским жителем, я не чувствовала усталости, да и сам город не казался мне суетливым. Тихие пешие прогулки в районе старого вокзальчика (скучаю по ним), мимо «Небльшого театра» (ТЮЗ😊) и ларька, где всегда пахло свежей выпечкой... корзина коляски, набитая продуктами из супермаркета, бабулечки, выстроившиеся в рядок со своими соленьями и цветочками с дачи) ммм😌
А сейчас, проведя в городе всего лишь день в режиме «доехать отсюда туда, купить, посмотреть, посетить», ощущаю себя, будто дома отсутствовала неделю. И это не образно) мне реально кажется, что продукты, оставшиеся в холодильнике, уже испорчены, «нас ведь таааааак долго не было»🙈 трачу там все силы, но, наверное, это больше вопрос привычки, просто, когда ритм уже не тот, сложно влиться в прежний🤷🏼♀️
Город - это прекрасно! Смена обстановки, как минимум) но после таких перемен мне требуется лесная подзарядка😅
Heerlijk zo die eerste zonnestralen van de dag op je huid voelen. Ik ben de laatste tijd echt fan van vroeg opstaan! Haha, wie had dat ooit gedacht! Maar echt, de wereld is zo mooi vlak voordat het ontwaakt. De stilte, het mooie licht en de dieren die langzaam hun dag beginnen...
Такой глубокий и благородный голубой цвет!⠀
Наше новое платье с фатиновым низом и расшитым кружевом и бисером верхом✨⠀
Оно просто волшебное!⠀
Such a deep and gorgeous blue color!⠀
Our new dress with a tulle bottom and decorated with lace and beads upper part ✨⠀
It’s just wonderful!⠀

Kolejny dzień wyzwania z #kobiecafotoszkoła, nawet słonko na zdjęciu udało się złapać 🌞
Wczoraj wieczorem wyczułam u Julka, że przebiły się te dwie górne jedyneczki z którymi się tak ostatnio męczy, więc Alleluja i miłego dnia wszystkim! 🙌🏻😘
