She reached for him, and my heart broke as I saw in her eyes what I had not expected to see. She was desperate for him and, she loved him. I had no idea. I looked around, hoping to see a social worker who could intervene and deliver me from this awkward moment as well as ease this woman's anxiety to hold her child.

Spring Time! This past spring I found an open field near a park. I stopped and let the kids play. They absolutely loved having all the flowers around, they loved to play outside and run around, sometimes the best things really are free! You don’t always have to spend money to do things and have fun. I do think kids enjoy being outside and having active parents to participate in as well, you don’t believe how much they admire that. 🌻🌷🌱☀️ #kids#kidsofinstagram#kidslife#momstyle#momstruggles#mom#momsofinstagram#momblogger#mommyandme#mommyblogger
This girl here is a fighter. Not the attack and punch you fighter. More the “ life has kicked the shit out you“ and you keep getting up. Not for more punishment but to gain the experience to do better next time. It’s not always easy. There are days when im less proud of myself and the fight has left me weak and raw But there are other days like this picture that shows I’m made it. I’ll continue to make it. I’ll be better and I’ll keep fighting. Not all my experiences have been pleasant but they’ve made me who I am and showed me that I keep getting back up and better each time. ❤️❤️ #fighter#deepthoughts#mom#fosterkid#nature#experience#liveandlearn#sunshine#everyday
I’m struggling right now.
A sentence I feel I say (too) regularly these days.
Everything feels overwhelming and impossible — even being asked “would you like some water?” makes my nervous system want to hightail it down the highway.
I have struggled with #depression and #anxiety for as long as I can remember. In my late teens, I was struck — hard — by #Fibromyalgia , and two years ago, I was diagnosed with #hyperthyroidism and #GravesDisease .
With the help of medication, we were able to stabilize my thyroid, and it has remained stable (without medication) for 10 months now 🙏🏼 my eyesight has not deteriorated any further and my heart rate is controlled by medication... but my joints have now become the target of this awful disease.
I struggled, a lot, before my Graves diagnosis. Some days were really tough, but I managed OK.
Life with #thyroiddisease is debilitating.
Your thyroid is your body’s powerhouse, the engine that keeps everything running the way it should.
When it is not functioning properly, the results can be catastrophic.
I’ve been feeling a #fibroflare coming on for about a week now... and there is mounting responsibility ahead with care and programming for the lads, and *gulp* Christmas holidays. No routine. For two weeks.
I’m trying to take one breath, one thought, one step, at a time... but I’m a planner, and it is very difficult for me to not think ahead.
It’s also very difficult for me to keep our ship afloat when I feel like I’m drowning. When I’m hurting so badly. When words don’t come to me, but I know what I want to say. When my skin hurts, and even the softest touch feels like razor blades. When I want to scream and cry.
My biggest line of defense is a hot bath before bed with a big drink of water and pain medication (OTC ibuprofen). It helps calm my body and mind, and sets me up as best as possible for rest.
Tomorrow is a new day, and the big guys have respite after school so it will be quieter and slower-paced ❤️ *deep breath*
At first glance, it sounds so simple. I mean, we have been raising kids for thousands of years. We must have a pretty good idea of what we are doing by now, right?
Well, maybe not.
Over the last few years, the health of our children has been declining at an alarming pace. Rates of childhood obesity across the globe have reached an all-time high, while childhood activity levels are still decreasing rapidly.
It is abundantly clear that modern society is not designed to raise healthy children – which is why the responsibility sits with you. Click the link in bio to learn more: *

When I first started doing these sleeping selfies, it was just something we giggled about as we drifted off to sleep. Now it’s become our thing. I have them all saved - I love looking back & seeing how much she has changed & grown but our nightly snuggles always remain the same 💕

Keterampilan menulis seringkali dianggap sebagai kompetensi dasar dan tolok ukur anak untuk siap sekolah. Udah mau masuk SD, udah bisa nulis belom? Begitu kira-kira kalau para orang tua sedang ngerumpi menanyakan kesiapan anak sekolah.
Terlepas dari itu semua, yang perlu ortu ketahui adalah proses menulis pada anak-anak itu sangat berbeda dari orang dewasa. Belajar menulis pada anak-anak adalah hal yang sangat kompleks karena diperlukan koordinasi kognitif, motorik, maupun neuromotorik.
Bahkan saat saya ikut seminarnya bu Dr Indun Lestari Setyono, Psikolog Sekolah, beliau bilang kalau anak bisa melompat itu juga ada kaitannya dengan bagaimana ia bisa menulis ntar. Nah loh kita sebagai ortu gak kebayang kan bakal sekompleks itu. Apalagi tantangan para ortu milenial saat ini anak-anak gak bisa lepas dari yang namanya gadget. Bakal diperlukan effort yang lebih besar loh untuk mengajari anak nulis. Yuk makanya jangan males ngilmu dan cari tahu sebelum anak dikirim les sana dan sini.

Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.✨Dalai Lama •
Compassion challenges our assumptions, our sense of self-limitation, worthlessness, of not having a place in the world. As we develop compassion, our hearts open. STRENGTH •
I challenge you to remain open and greet each day with compassion 💫

Tomorrow is scrabble day at my daughter’s school. I forgot to pick up a shirt and puffy paint, and she couldn’t decide on a letter (D for Dallas, T for Texas, C for Cowboys, K for Kendra, G for Goldy - U of M mascot, or M for Max) M won out and I ran to Walmart at 6 pm tonight in the rain. It’s a 50 minute drive each way.
So she has her scrabble piece shirt. It’s not a masterpiece, I am not crafty, but #momtried .

2019 Dreamer @itscorisheabutta 💗 .
For a very long time, Cori struggled with her dark skin complexion and how she was treated because of it. While pregnant with her son, she was diagnosd with high blood pressure and a diastasis reaction. After 3 years of in and out of doctors appointments, she had a surgery that left her with a hip to hip scar. From this life experience, she has embraced her body and learned to take her health very seriously. She wants to show girls and women of all ages that self-love is the best love and you should do everything with confidence💋 .
Thank you for being a part of the @dreamwalkfashionshow, WE LOVE YOU!✨ .
I've debated about this photo or even posting, but it's part of my story and other mommies out there.
I love being a mom who's focused, understanding, engaged, enjoying every opportunity or every second of motherhood. With amazing days that I wish could never end. I've been all of this.
But I have also been the mom that felt like she could no longer be patient, listen to anymore crying, clean up another mess,
Because I'm just so damn tired.
This is the aftermath of a blood hurdling tantrum lasting 2 hours, and a mother who's had a history of emotional issues.
This photo I was drained.
My emotions running high.
I was crying and I was laughing.
I felt miserable.
I felt angry, because I couldn't figure out what she needed.
I felt like the joy of being a mother was sucked out of me.
And it hurts that I can't be the mother she needed at that time.
But when days feel long, and your mind goes numb,
Remember you are their safety, their home with a blanket,their forever first love,and their shoulder to lean on.
And when funds are low, but debt is high remember your not defeated your only a step behind.
When you feel your world becoming small, remember you are the world in their bright eyes.
I've felt like a failure, one ugly lost cause.
And I accepted that fate with pain in my chest, the ache behind my eyes, the labored breathing from crying awhile.
But I looked down and I saw her sleeping, she took a deep breath and sighed.
I felt that warmth of my love for my child, and even though she doesn't understand,
I will always love her.
So I hope to the parents they know even on bad days you know how special you are.
Cause I have been the love and the mess.
But one thing I can't quit on is being a mother who will try her best. 🧡🧡
Рома только увидит у меня в руках заветную коробочку, кричит с улыбкой до ушей «Даааа, заниматься»!
Сейчас в топе у нас IQ-лото половинки, различные пазлы, квадраты Никитина, досочки Сегена🧩
Но даже в любимом деле необходимо сделать небольшой перерыв, подурачиться, побегать и перекусить любимой вкусняшкой. А сына мой поесть любит, даже если два часа назад был завтрак. Сегодня у Ромы на такой перекус была полезная кашка @tyoma_by 🤤 Мы и творожки их лопаем😍
To jedno z moich ukochanych zdjęć, kiedy dzieciaki były maluszkami. Bardzo miło wspominam ten czas, każdy nowy dzień, pierwsze uśmiechy, pierwsze mamo. Ale ten czas był też w jakimś sensie naznaczony strachem. Strachem przed chorobami. Szczepiłam dzieci na wszystkie obowiązkowe i dodatkowe szczepienia, szczepię teraz na grypę. Kiedyś mówiłam, że szczepię, bo kocham, dziś wiem, że szczepię również dlatego, że się boję. Ryzyko chorób jest realne i dużo większe, niż ryzyko np. NOP-u, nie potrafiłabym sobie wybaczyć, gdyby dzieci cierpiały przez coś, czemu mogłam zapobiec. Nie potrafię podjąć takiego ryzyka. Szczepię, bo to najlepsza, przemyślana decyzja. Na blogu (w opisie mojego profilu) nowy tekst. Do przemyślenia i skomentowania. Bo Ci, którzy szczepią, zwykle zostają zagadani przez przeciwników. A ja mam ochotę głośno mówić - o to jedno jestem spokojna, bo zaszczepiłam. Strach o dzieci nigdy nie mija, ale czy mamy prawo ryzykować? #szczepienia#instamama#mama#mom#instamom#kids#dzieci#trojaczki#triplets#kocham#jestemmama#macierzyństwo#rodzicielstwo#polishmum#eltrojacco#dzieciaki#picoftheday#polskamama#momlife#parenting#cute#twins

20 li yaşlarımın ortasından bildiriyorum... Hayat çok güzel önüne çıkan engellerden ders çıkarmayı bildiğin zaman. 2 çocuk bakmak çok kolay, en iyisi en mükemmeli biz olucaz demediğin zaman. Evlilik çok kolay herzaman sonsuz sevdiğin zaman. Ne olursa olsun karakterini kimse için değiştirmediğin zaman. Takmadığın zaman hakkında söylenenleri, gülüp alay edebildiğin zaman, herzaman hayatı dalgaya alabildiğin zaman hayat çok kolay. İnsanlardan karşılık beklemediğin zaman, iyilik mi yaptın unut arkadaşım! Minnet bekleme! Kimse sen değil. İyilik mi gördün teşekkür et ama sonsuza kadar minnet etme, çünkü iyiliği yaptığını unuttuğun zaman sana geri döner, karşılık beklediğin zaman değil ve ben 2 bebekli 20li yaşlarımın ortasını hayatla dans ederek geçiriyorum sanırım çok şükür Allahım 🙏🧿 #mom#şükür#baby#life#love#bebek#anne
