Mia and her new pet (her favorite soft toy, the chihuahua 😊) .
This girl had a really funny experience yesterday. We were going out for biking and she was too near to the edge of the side walk and fell down with her bike to the paddy field. I jumped down to pick her up but she didn’t even cry (no sign of crying even haha) I cleaned her up and I know she was a bit scared so she said, ‘Mommy, I want you to carry me’ but I just hugged her (just trying to show her how to be more brave) and I told her she could continue riding her bike and go ‘Weeeeeeeeee’ when she reach the little incline on her way. So without any hesitation, she climbed back on her bike and continued and did her ‘Weeeeeeeeee’ putting up her feet and balancing herself. So so proud of this little wild girl.
We were just sitting and enjoying the sunshine when she walked around where we were at and suddenly she said, ‘Mommy, help me, I fell down’ and when I looked closely, there was a tiny hole on the ground and she stepped her feet there and her shoe came off and was trying to pull it out. I went to help her and her socks and shoes were all dirty. But she was ok and we continued sitting and I just let them have fun outside near the rice field. .
We came back home and were just hanging around near our little garden searching for some insects when she said, ‘Mommy, I got hurt in my toe’ and when i looked inside, there was a tiny thorn sticking on her toe (the side i took her socks off). I pulled it out and she was fine.
How can someone so little had so many experiences in just one/two hours???? 😅 . A friend once said, ‘These are skills’ and I am starting to believe it 😂🙊😂 @foreverhis.guch0301 .
Some of my best friends are my brothers friends... being raised around guys my whole life was the best.... it was like constantly having additional brothers around... to protect you, and to do nothing but laugh and be silly with because that’s who they always were. Love when my best friends visit me in nyc...#brothersfromanothermother#silliness#childhoodmemories#nyc
Time has sped on by ... WOW she’s 11 years old today ... Thinking of the birthday girl all day today 🛎📲📱📲 Missed a NYC
FaceTime: Returns the FaceTime and it’s my favorite 11 year old - where did time go? ... 📲 is constantly beeping as everyone is calling to wish her blessings & birthday 🍰 🎂 🎁 wishes 🎊🎊💕🎊🎉🎉💕🎉on the left she was enjoying her skate party probably turning 5 years old, and this summer on the right she’s like #CuzDaphne when are we having #MotivatedBeauty#SpaDay again because last time it was so much fun when you put the warm oatmeal (I make my own masks 🎭- for our #SelfCare time) & honey on my face & we were laughing while I was eating it & the cucumbers off my eyes 🥒 too 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂 Presently, I may not have the money 💵 💰 💴 to buy a bunch of material items, so I strategically invest quality time, genuine love 💕, concern & respect to my lil cousins ... I’m careful of the atmosphere that I create in & around them - in order that I offer them more amazing #childhoodmemories each time that I’m in their presence b/c it will help them as youth & adults - to one- know their worth, they R loved, how to care, celebrate life & be kind while learning life skills, biz tips, logic, how to use their mother wit, practice common sense while enjoying family & all the love we have for each other while sharing some belly aching genuine laughs 😝 that’s neatly wrapped in more Agape 💕& ways to keep living well. She’s super smart, talented & going to be taller than me soon - at my shoulders WOW ... #Kmor#kennedyKB#HappyBirthdayKennedy , cuz Daphne loves you beyond any posts, photos or words & I show you with my actions ... Back to the FaceTime & then texting because her birthday calls were rapidly coming in ...Kennedy: Where are you cousin Daphne? Me: At granny’s in The Carolina’s
Kenny 😢: Oh But your suitcase is still here - when are you coming back for it ? Daphne: she’s stalking me 😂 😂- I’m not coming back, I can’t take NYC winters ... nah, I’ll be back soon mylove Kenny: Okay 👌🏾 I love 💕 & miss you cuz Daphne Awww my lil babygirl is old enough to text and have an intellectual conversation and decipher some things, I’m one proud cousin ... #foe She misses me
my final baby || this day had to come eventually. we couldn’t keep having baby endlessly.. well if I was 10 years younger & won the lottery maybe we could 🙈. But as sad as it is to know this is my last first words, my last first steps, my last little baby... I also have a feeling of happiness knowing this is my family. I’m excited for the future. I’m excited not to pack diapers, not to have to worry about nap schedules.. whenever it started to get a little bit easier as my kids got older (being more independent, being able to communicate) I would throw a baby in the mix & start it all over. not this time. no more coming out of the newborn fog phase for me. this is my family complete and I’m pretty stoked about it
Who is travelling for Christmas this year? Any exciting adventures ahead?? Our families live in separate states, which can be hard. Fingers crossed we can spend sometime with our families this year 📷 @olliella .
I often dream about a white Christmas, I think it would be magical ☃️
The road we've been travelling on since we found out we were pregnant with Sienna has both been amazing but daunting. Sharing part of that in a blog post was not only healing, but I wanted to help other women who have struggled with their pregnancies and or birth.
To have it now published on @kidspot is nothing short of incredible and validating.
I can't wait to continue sharing more with you all. 💗
