Children need self-awareness, they need to understand how God sees them. There self-image must be that of empowerment and of creativity. Let’s tell these children that they are so powerful they can change their experience with their tongues. What they tell themselves about themselves is what they will experience. . . . . . . . . . . #messy_motherhood #memoirsofmotherhood #mumswhostyle #ohmamamoment #ohheymama #mommystatus #momdotme #mommylifestyle #instamamagang #joyfulmamas #vsco_mom #vscomom #motherlove #clickinmoms #acupofmotherhood #momlife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #uniteinmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #honestmotherhood #honestlymothering #myhonestmotherhood #momhub #socialmediamom #momsofig #themotherhoodcorner #wellwateredwomen #motherhoodunplugged #morethanmama

It is clearly *so* tiring being this cute! But seriously, WHY are newborn yawns the best thing to ever exist? Like we get it, such a hard life ❤️ . I had to take a moment to send the hugest THANK YOU to everyone for the absolute sweetest messages and comments. I have been overwhelmed by the amount of love (and in newborn heaven over here, slacking at getting back to everyone). I have read them all and am so SO grateful to have connected with so many beautiful women in this space. I’ll be posting about her birth story soon!

Booty booty workout!! Day 10 of my Bali workout. . Our morning routine starts off with waking up at 6am, cuddles with Maui in bed, maybe take another 30 min nap depends, make our “usual” breakfast which is oats, chia, hemp, flax, pb, and banana. Stretch/warmup. Workout, take laps in the pool, eat breakfast number 2 from our resort, snorkel, lunch, and go with the flow. . The workout was a 12 Min EMOM . Every odd minutes: 12 seated band butterflies, 12 diamond squat raises, remainder of the minute, jump jack squats . Every even minutes: 10 front and back band shoulder raise, 10 front raise, remainder of the minute bent over band kicks . Keep doing that, no rest, till you did 12 minutes. . Try it out, perfect total body workout. . . Always rocking my @mummactiv maternity sports bra. Even though not breastfeeding because it’s fucking sexy and. cute!! . #thickthighs #balancedlife #myhonestmotherhood #familylifestyle #inspiremothers #momconfessions #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodintheraw #thisismotherhood #instamamagang #lifeasmama #momcommunity #igmotherhood #socialmediamom #travelfit #fitnessmama #postpartumfitness #momswithmuscles #hotelworkout #travelworkout #homeworkout

Nothing makes me happier on a Monday than kicking off a new group - you can feel the ENERGY it in! Almost 30 ladies committed to finishing out this year strong, to not letting the holidays get the best of them and to prep for our new program in January. SO excited for them! . I love my job so much. There’s NEVER been a better time to be a COACH!! 🙌🏻💕

5 Reasons You Aren't Seeing the Results You Want⁣ ⁣ Are you sick of trying everything and can't seem to find the reason why you aren't getting what you want to see athletically or aesthetically? Here's what you may be missing out on!⁣ ⁣ ⚡️Not enough Protein⁣ This is something i see frequently when people are just starting to track their food a bit more closely. You should have at least 1g of protein per lb. of lean body mass! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⚡️Not enough Calories⁣ If you are eating 1200 calories and busting your ass in the gym, and not losing weight, it could be because you are not eating enough calories, and your body has down-regulated to surviving on little amounts of nutrients. Do you think your body will do what YOU want it to when you are starving it? Nope. ⁣ ⚡️You crush your workouts but aren’t active elsewhere ⁣ If you are getting less than 5,000 steps/day then you gotta step it up (literally). Aim to get 8-10,000 steps! We aren't meant to be sitting on our butts all day, so get a move on! Walk your dog for 10-15 mins a day, park further away, take the stairs, just get them in!⁣ ⁣ ⚡️ You're dieting, but not measuring your food⁣ If you aren't measuring your food, you are easily over-estimating your calories for the day. Want to ensure you're getting eating exactly what you think you are? Grab a scale and learn! ⁣ ⚡️ You're making excuses.⁣ Maybe you are too tired to go to the gym, or you just had to eat those snacks, or meal prepping is too hard. But you know what?⁣ You are making up any reason when things get difficult. ⁣ And THIS is why you don't see the results. You make excuses for not getting it done, for things being the wrong time, etc. ⁣ ⁣ Take a look at what's going on in your life right now and see if any of these could be the culprit! Have a great Monday and kick ass! _______________________________________ #countingcalories #flexibleeating #nutritiontips #goodfats #eatgoodfeelgood #ketonesforfuel #eatwhatiwant #myhonestmotherhood #stopdropandmom #justmomlife #momhustle #momentrepreneurs #mondayfunday #mondaybreakfast #mundanemonday #beautyatitsbest #beautyatitsfinest #beautyallaround #naturalisbetter #naturalisbeautiful #buildingstrongasswomen

twinbabystories

Prompt 1 - to be or not to be . . As a female, I always wanted to cherish the joy of being a mother. But for me, the pregnancy was a surprise, we were traveling to Amritsar and then I realized that I have Missed my periods, so thought of checking with my Gynaecologist. It was like normal regular routine check-ups. But the biggest surprise came up after another one month that I am expecting twins.. . . Yes, my Gynaecologist was also surprised to know how she was unable to know during 4-5 visits. And yes that day I really felt the joy of crying. It was like a bundle of joy for both of us as no one had the history of twins in our families. . . So, this is like a miracle for which I was not even sure, but when I felt those 2 heart beats in me, I felt the joy of conceiving. . . . #siashi #momtobe #newmom #throwback #myhappymoments #lovelyfeeling #pixel_kids #candidmoment #candid #mumfie #feelingblessed #joyfulmamas #myhonestmotherhood #lovelymoments #twinbump #babybump #twinmom #twinsofig #twinmommy #twinpregnancy #newparenting #parentinggoals #twingocarrier #twinsouls #momsrememberdecember #shinyhappymoms #merrrydec10 #merryyxmas1 #notnownoww

What do I do during the flu? 1. Bone Broth! Did you know Bone Broth is rich in minerals that support the immune system and contains healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline. The collagen in bone broth heals your gut lining and reduces intestinal inflammation.

I have been MIA a little bit these last few days, not intentional just sometimes you need to just follow the mood of the day & follow their lead, yesterday no matter what I did, I needed to present because each time my focus was somewhere else the friction between these two got worse 🤦🏻‍♀️ This morning they both seemed to wake up in a heaps better mood, looks like they were just having a bad day 🤷🏻‍♀️ What can I say about today....Busy......Busy.....So much going on around this time of year, the count down has begun...Still not sure if I am looking forward to the school holidays 🤔 Do you love or hate them? #BusyTimeOfYear #SchoolHolidays #CountDownIsOn

Motivation Monday ———-❤️———- Today’s motivational Monday is coming directly from one of our guests: We love Wassim’s attitude of getting in there right now! Not wanting to stand by idly, but being involved in the lives of his kids right away! . Dad’s, just because your kids might call for mama when they are hurt or want to sleep in mama’s bed or want to sit with mama, eat with mama, play with mama, get dressed only by mama, please don’t give up. Be persistent. The more you are present and demand your share of attention from your kids, the more the closer they will become to you! . They need you! Don’t forget that. Even if they throw a tantrum at your attempt of putting on their pants and let mama do it on first try! . #thinklikemama #motherhoodunplugged #dailyparenting #mommylove #newmom #myhonestmotherhood #momlifestyle #parenthood #parentinglife #parentinghacks #parentingadvice #mama #mommyandme #motherandchild #interview #mydubai #dubaimums #momsindubai #dubaimoms #mompreneur #dubai #lifewithkids #dubaidads

“We didn’t realise we were making memories we just knew we were having fun” . What great fun we had together today, just the littlest things give so much joy to Zara. Like handing the ticket to the lady at the deli in the supermarket, waving to every dog on our afternoon walk, laughing at her reflection in the window while poking faces 😝 . Childhood brings happiness everyday 💫 This gorgeous little romper set with the bonnet and matching sanders is from @ma_mer_sydney . . . . . . . #newlymama #ig_motherhood #motherhoodinspired #motherhood #mumlife #motherhoodthroughig #mummyblogger #thehappynow #inbeautyandchaos #mymamahood #acupofmotherhood #documentingmotherhood #ohheymama #notonlymama #bestofmum #mum_hub #momtogs #joyfulmamas #ourtinymoments #littlepiecesofchildhood #ourcandidlife #myhonestmotherhood #motherhoodlense #simplychildren #pixel_kids #littlepiecesofchildhood #momentsinmotherhood #mumlifeisthebestlife #heaventhroughmylense #watchthemgrow

FYI @thewonderweeks leap four is a killer; eye bags are a permanent fixture! But it’s Monday, a sparkly new week, so I’m going to be positive that this week brings more sleep, happy babies and a general bit more calm to our lives than the past few days!

На красивые фотографии надо выкроить время, которого и так нет. А если ты мама, и у тебя не один, а два и более ребенка 🙈 какие там фотографии, скажете вы, в туалет бы успеть. Сейчас расскажу приемчик! Вроде бы все знают, а не пользуются. 🤷 ⠀ Особенно подойдёт для мам, которые постоянно откладывают, ничего не успевают, занимаются всем, чем угодно, но только не тем, чем надо. Работающих мам тоже касается. ☝️ Нет четких расстановок в голове - дома бардак, сама в огне, как будто сбежала с пожарища. Узнаёте себя? У меня так и есть, если нет четко прописанного плана.🤪 ⠀ Я живу одним днём, поэтому планирую только предстоящий день и ставлю уже заранее известные планы, типа сходить с Тасей в планетарий, спектакль и т.п. ⠀ Можно взять ежедневник и туда записывать все-все дела и делишки. У меня есть красивый такой, приятно взять в руки и писать красивым почероком. Очень приятный ежевечерний ритуал. ⠀ Если же вы не любите писать от руки, можно скачать планеры-приложения на телефон (TickTick, Sectograph) или просто заносить в заметки на телефоне и отмечать галочками . ⠀ Мой план на сегодня выглядит так: ⠀ Дом 🏠 (мне нравится разделять на зоны, типа: дом, дети, ремонт, работа) ⠀ - Стирка - Уборка - Ужин ⠀ Дети 🚸 ⠀ - Поликлиника Аня - Тася вокал ⠀ Ремонт 👨‍🔧 ⠀ - Светильники кухня - Диван - Кровать в детскую ⠀ Работа 🖥️ ⠀ - Фото - Текст ⠀ Для особо растерянных я рекомендую записывать каждый шаг, вплоть до завтрака и стирки. Вроде бы все очевидно, но это организует очень здорово. Во время уборки можно вообще завести таймер ⏰, чтобы не растягивать это "удовольствие". ⠀ Ну и когда все галочки на запланированных делах стоят, приходит такое чувство удовлетворения. 💆 А самое главное, откуда-то появляется время на себя, на маску, например, или время полежать на аппликаторе для спины, на красивые фотографии, любимое дело. ⠀ А теперь упражнение Лента жизни 👍, помогает ценить свое время и не растрачивать его попусту. Необходимо записывать время, проведенное за тем или иным делом до минуты. У меня больше всего уходит на Инстаграм и все, что связанно с едой, готовкой и потреблением. 🤣 И это горе... ⠀ А у вас что? Попробуйте посчитать! Или может ещё советов подкините?

Thank you all for your lovely messages, this little community of mamas and women is one thing I absolutely love about Instagram. A little update: I came into hospital at 11pm last night after an hour of contracting every 2 and a half minutes for 50 seconds. They gave painkillers and waited an hour. I was still contracting every two minutes at this stage. I had a dose of steroids to mature baby’s lungs and uterus relaxants to ease contractions. They have slowed and are still irregular at this point so another dose of steroids tonight. I won’t be released until they have stopped or until she is born. It’s such a scary thought having a baby so early but I know we are in the best place if it does happen. But she flipped last night, she has dropped and engaged which means if labour persists no need for a c section! Trying to stay positive and writing out my thoughts helps, but I can’t help but to feel emotional right now.

A Gratitude post! Thank you all my mom bloggers here who poured in their suggestions to my last post. They were really helpful. I got some really cool ideas to keep peace with my bored toddler..here are some which I am really gonna try. 🐈 Will try to send her to playschool. Yes, i was confused a lil bit for sending her at this age but we can always look into options. That way she can be with kids of her age and will help in her mental development. 🐈 Will make an activity corner in her room so that she gets attracted to some DIYs. 🐈 Will buy some new toys for her because she is done with playing with old ones. 🐈 Will myself play with her, as when she wants me. Your kid surely needs an undivided attention at times. Leave everything and be with them. 🐈 Will try to minimize her screen time (which is already very less. More toys and books than screens!! Thanks a ton everyone here!! This is what we are meant to, help each other in such times!! More ideas are always welcome. #toddlerhood #toddler #boredtoddler #ideastokeepkidsbusy #momsgroup #momsofinstagram #igmomsquadlike #igmoms #motherhoodunpluged #motherhood #myhonestmotherhood #momnbaby #momndaughter #canonphotography #upshot #snapseed #edits #igshotz #potd #ootd #momsofindia #jaipurmomblogger #jaipurbloggers #wintlik #love #babygirlphotography #indianbaby

What a lovely way to kick start our Christmas celebrations! Was amazing to have my dad and sister visit. . Lots of wine, food and giggles had. The boys have loved every second of being with them and it has made me incredibly excited for the next few weeks coming up. . We are so lucky to have lots of people coming to visit us this year and I can't wait!!!! ❤ . #familychristmas #christmastime #love

It must be Christmas party season. This little one has a party at playgroup today (and a nativity to watch as it’s a church group), Big Sister has her school disco this evening and Daddy has his work party later this week. Next week it’s the Nursery Christmas party and school nativity/ play. I’ve even been invited to something Christmassy with adults too! Only problem is I can’t remember where I left my Christmas hat! Do you have lots of party plans? Funny how none of mine include going out and drinking these days. Our favourite Christmas cuddlies pictured were gifted from @clintonsretail. I feel I have to disclose them every time they get into a picture these days 🙄 . . . #christmasjumpers #themagicofchristmas #myhonestmotherhood #motherhoodthroughig #mama_pals #momlife #momitforward #mynameismama #acupofmotherhood #storytellingmama #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodsimplified #lifeasmama #joyfulmamas #instamom #motherhoodthroughig #teammotherly #littlefierceones #kidsforreal #motherhoodintheraw #momlifestyle #momtribe #momswithcameras #letthembelittle #uniteinmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #messy_motherhood #slowmotherhood #magicofmotherhood

Sometimes our vision is foggy. . Foggy with doubt and judgement and guilt. We question our parenting skills, we shrink under watchful eyes of “well-wishers”, and we don’t give ourselves any slack. . You know what? Enough of that. We are doing a great job, we forget our own needs, we rock! . Just look at those little monsters, they are thriving! So should you - clear that fog. . Have a great start of the week! Tell me what you will do for yourself this week! . . . . . #whpnaturallight #momlife #dadlife #parentproblems #sarcasm #toddler #kids #lifewithkids #toddlermom #mommood #motherhood #momswithcameras #stopdropandmom #myhonestmotherhood #honestmothering #honestmama #kidsaretheworst #parenting101 #dads #realmomproblems #funnymom #parenting #scarymommy #badmoms #mynameismom #mamachronicles #momproblems #youareabadass #naturephotography #foggyday

I was the Ma that wished she would grow up. Wanting to see her develop and grow. I’m a teacher I love for that! But now I want time to stop. I want to soak up each moment and make them last forever. I don’t want to miss one second and I don’t ever want to wish it away. Stay this little. Stay innocent to the world, excited by each morning. Always want cuddles with your Ma. Never grow out of pulling funny faces and laughing at Daddy. I want you to grow, to learn but I don’t want to loose these moments either. #adventureninjas

After spending almost 2 years working part-time in a job that I enjoyed while raising my eldest son, I quit 6 months ago and chose to stay at home once my daughter came along. There are days I wished I was still working; there are also many other days where I feel like I am living my dream life. A big part of why I chose to stay home was because I wanted to obey what I felt like God was saying I needed to do in this season. But I still struggled with the decision. Many assume that being a full time mom is for those whose husbands can afford it. While we were comfortable, the loss of one income meant changes to our lifestyle. We had to and continue to make adjustments to our spending. I am thankful for a supportive husband who works hard and is committed to making this work so I can stay at home with the kids. I looked around me and there were moms who continued holding their jobs while they had baby after baby. Some were very successful. How was it that others seemed to be able to juggle their work and family life so well? Was it my lack of ability? I doubted the need to stay at home several times, because if others could do it, why couldn’t I? But I knew and still believe that everyone is made so differently and uniquely. There is no right or wrong, better or worse - you need to know yourself and the needs of your family to make the best decision. The toughest of it all was dealing with a loss of identity. I had so much trouble leaving my job because I felt like it was associated with my identity. Without my job, without my title, I had nothing to fall back on, I would just be a… mom. While I understand the weight of that title more today, I was afraid of what others thought of me when I would quit. Today, I am proud to be (just) a mom (: I firmly believe that this is a short and precious season with my young children, and I can always go back to work when this season passes. There is no monetary equivalent. I recognise the privilege I have to stay at home and watch my kids grow up. I love that I can teach them values that matter to our family. I am thankful I have made this decision and choose to embrace this season of my life! - Gladys

Dear Melia, I’m off to work now. It won’t be long and I’ll be home. I know your Dad will keep you close, snuggled up on his chest and as you smile at him with all the happiness in the world, know this. I’m going back to work, but I’ll be home soon. I’m Nervous... I feel guilty and it makes me sad. Growing you for 9 months and holding you for the last 3 watching you grow earth side has changed me in ways I never imagined. I am stronger now and I can do this! I hope, that in your tiny eyes you’ll see what it means to be successful. To pursue your dreams. As your mother and as a human in a tough world, I do this so we can have it all. You know you are loved, Mama xx Our first trip as a family is: 2018 - New Zealand And in 2019 - Hawaii After that who knows 💁‍♀️✈️ Are you planing a holiday? Shoot me a DM or Email and let’s link up 🌏🙌🏼 #myhonestmotherhood #lifeasmama #morethanmama #mynameismama #travellingthroughtheworld

Mommin’ is hard but the moments like these make it totally worth it. . Much of the day I’m wondering if I’m doing any of it right. I got the times mixed up for the Nutcracker today and almost made my daughter and my in-laws late for the performance. Meanwhile at home, Graham didn’t take a nap and chaos reigned! As usual. . This 3 kid life is as hard as “they” said it would be, but I’m trying to give myself grace for all the mistakes along the way. It’s easy to see the blessings when look at Graham and I’m working on just slowing down enough to focus on that everyday. . Moms - how long did it take you to adjust to adding a third child? Any tips?

Take the worst day of your life, and find out how it’s also the best day of your life. ⠀ ⠀ In all honesty, I called Bullshit on that. ⠀ It’s just not possible. ⠀ ⠀ For me personally, the worst day of my life was when i woken up from a 20 minute nap, and the first words said were⠀ ⠀ “Andi he’s gone. You missed it.”⠀ ⠀ My Dad had passed away. ⠀ Absolutely crushed, devastated, pissed, confused, shocked, all the feels. ⠀ And then all the feels went into a bottle. ⠀ ⠀ I had to be strong. My 3 year old daughter was watching. Family was around. Crying is weak. My sister’s here. Where’s my brother? He just left, he has to come back. wheres my phone. Somebody find my phone. I have to be the one to call him. ⠀ ⠀ The days following were a blur. Surreal. Like a dream. Even though we all knew this was coming, you’re still never ready for it. Or the pressure of how you’re “supposed to” act/grieve/be. ⠀ ⠀ How could this ever be the best day of my life?! ⠀ ⠀ I see it now. I see how it’s not the best day because it’s a happy day or a celebrating day or a fun get together day. ⠀ ⠀ It’s the best day because it taught me the value of my health. My husbands health. My kids’ health. ⠀ ⠀ And i never in a million years want to be sitting in a room with Gregory next to me, listening to a Dr. telling me I ‘HAVE TO’ do something because I have a health issue. ⠀ ⠀ I watched my dad fade away. I watched the strong become weak. I grieve still to this day. It fucking sucks! Cancer fucking sucks!! ⠀ ⠀ And I refuse to put my kids through anything like that. I want them to remember me strong, and energetic, and healthy, and confident, and laughing, and swimming with them, playing with them. ⠀ ⠀ Not me on the sidelines. ⠀ ⠀ Coaching has helped me become the best version of me. Cheesy?! Fine, you can see it hat way. But it’s the truth. ⠀ ⠀ Your health isn’t a quick fix.⠀ It isn’t to be taken for granted. ⠀ None of us are invincible. ⠀ ⠀ So we do we keep acting like we are by eating crap and complaining about all the changes we want to make?!🤷🏻‍♀️⠀ ⠀ Want to make a change?! Do it. Nobody says you have to stay where you are. You aren’t a tree sister🌲 Want support?! I got you girl✨💕

🌵 Happy holidays! 🌵 This is my Xmas card to you. Our friend took this photo at Usery Park, one of our favorite area parks for quick hikes. And no, we didn’t actually go hiking in our dresses 😜. If you saw my stories last month, you may have seen that I was participating in a #hikeitbaby challenge to hike 30 miles in the month of November. We have been hiking as a family since Poppy was about 5 months old, but up until November, I hadn’t frequently gone hiking alone with her. One of the few times I did go alone, back when she was tiny, I ended up getting stuck by a jumping cactus and it scared me a little bit because I kept on thinking that it could’ve been Poppy. I only made it to 19 out of 30 miles last month, but participating in the challenge definitely helped me go hiking more often. 😍😍

Not every day is perfect in our house. Being a mom has changed me dramatically. In ways I can’t even really explain. Raising a child takes a lot of work and feels like the greatest accomplishment at times. - It’s also one of the most doubtful and hardest friggin things I have ever done. I thought my anxiety was bad before kids.. - When you look around and realize that the friends (and family) you had before are no longer around it’s hard to not doubt yourself and wonder if there is something you are doing wrong. - I am here to tell you sister, you are not alone. Your not alone in the days of pure happiness, your not alone in the evenings full of frustration, and your not alone the nights you cry yourself to sleep. . It may feel like it at times, but look around you, mama. - The smile on your children’s faces and the noises that fill the rooms around you are all because of you. You may feel like a failure in all areas of your life right now but your kids will never see you the way you see you. . Your best will never be someone else’s best and I am learning to let that go.. it’s so freeing to finally do what’s best for you. - Even if it’s having no makeup on, a messy house, and leaving it behind to take your kids to the park while you sit in your car to be alone. It’s OK.. . So, embrace the life and the time you have right now with your kids. Be present in the moment, and mama.. please stop being so hard on yourself. - What have you done to fill your cup today? . .

No no no! It is never over for all who believe in the Creator. Just ponder the name, Creator, and see if you can imaging anything like LACK. I guess it is absolutely a big NO.

With Him in us, we can never be stopped cause all things are created again. Your ideas, your move, your mind, your ability, your potential and your life are all renewed and rejuvenated. . . Trees always depend on the Light and look up to the EVERLASTING LIGHT and live On and By the Light alone. He is the light of the World and our everlasting light. My beloved if you can fix your eyes on Him and lift up your Eyes unto Him in NO TIME YOU SHALL STAND AGAIN. . . I LOVE YOU!!!!. . .
