Are you even family if you don't execute wrestling moves on each other? 👊
A childminder run and work were pending but, with time to spare and a daughter actively asking for a power bomb (legit one of the latest words in her locker), how could I refuse? This bit of playtime, albeit short, was just what I needed to set me up for a long day knowing she'd be asleep when I got home 🔋💣 #DADultLife#MondayMotivation#PowerBomb#AmateurWrestling
Fragend wo der Winter ist, rollen wir zum Kinderarzt. Wir haben heute den Termin fürs EKG.
Kommt gut in die neue Woche ❤️ #scootandride
Jacke bei Mamikreisel gekauft 😄
Schuhe letztes Frühjahr als Schnäppchen gekauft und gefreut, dass sie jetzt passen 🎉
Leaf it out 😋🍁 After making a nature smoothie with mud and other delights as part of a children's woodland trail held at the fair, my little wildling thought she'd found an open buffet. It's safe to say, based on her resultant expression, that's one meal I won't be sampling – despite her valiant attempts to share (read violently stuff it into my mouth) 🤐🍂#DADultLife#RaiseThemWild#AtOneWithNature

Since these two beauts have only gone and had a bubba, I thought it was only right to throw it back to pre-baby life and the final care-free stages of our 20s 😂
I couldn't be happier for you both! In fact, my face looked something like this when the picture of Hef came through 😍So looking forward to meeting little man for a cuddle and, crucially, taking him on tour in about 18 years. Back to Newcastle, @neilfuss? 🍻🎉😆 #DADultLife#NewParents#TBT
Bild dient nur zur Aufmerksamkeit.
Wenn du morgens auf dem Weg zur Arbeit in der Sbahn nach München sitzt und du gefragt wirst, wo die Haltestelle Alexanderplatz ist? Öh in Berlin...
Wo müssen sie hin?
Zur Jannowitzbrücke. Ja die ist in Berlin.
Guten Morgen, na auch in der falschen Stadt aufgewacht? 🤪
Und ich dachte, ich hätte kein Orientierungssinn 🙈
OVERCOMING FEARS..!!! We often read or hear that the best way to overcome (or conquer) your fear is to #faceit
Yet we live in denial, try to avoid it or run away from it as much as we can!
This isn't a tendency that we learn after we are done adulting, but its one of the #basic#humaninstinct to avoid things which scare us or are out of our #comfortzone
I saw this with my #growingupbaby
He's always hell bent on doing stuff which pleases him & at the ones he's already good at, which is great, after all #practicemakesamanperfect
However, it takes wisdom of god and patience like a rock to make him to do things he feels #gross or #scary for example,
HE HATES WALKING IN SAND
HE IS SCARED OF STEPPING WATER (only loves splashing water in bath tub)
SWING MAKES HIM SICK (while he can spend whole day at a merry-go-round)
HE FEELS ICKY WALKING ON THE GRASS
HE DEMANDS A TISSUE AT ONCE HIS HANDS ARE SOILED (with food, however he is happy to play with colors)
And, the list goes on..! In life, we often tend to look up to people we love and trust to make us either take our first step, or walk with us in our times of difficulty.
It might not be difficult for them but we know that this given thing makes us weak somehow.. So, we both try and teach him NOT everything which he feels unpleasant is like that, sometimes he should try & come out of his comfort zone, only to realise that its no fun to hold back!
We increase his encounters with such events gradually and do all activites surrounding that event with him,infact my husband tries to block sound of any crying child who is stuck on a slide for that matter because it might again #bounceback Nabh to being scared...! (Such dedicated father he is)
These are simple pleasures of childhood yet very important #lifelessons because if we let the #fear sink in, he might always be scared of so many things in life that we're unaware of right now!
We all want our child to be #fearless but how do we make it possible is up to us!
The clips here are few incidents where after 100s of trials, he liked some of those activities! (Continues in next post)
