When you receive a random message from a lovely mom from your kids school ( that you barely know) but you know the little girl is a sweetheart from being on FTs and class stuff- and it just makes your WHOLE week... i had to post n brag#proudmommymoment#ThankU 💜 #mysweetboy#SAS
5 Things ✨
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Working from home with your toddler isn’t easy. Especially when you have this massive dream trying to erupt out of you. It’s a lot of stop and go when you really just want to put your head down for a few hours and GO. I’ve written 4 lines and I’ve already had to get up and pause my train of thought at least 5 times. Because toddler life. I’m not complaining. I love this life. I chose this life. I am blessed. But if you are in a similar season or you have been here before, I’m saying I can relate. I can relate hard.
Here are 5 things I’m going to do this week to help me be a great mom, wife, and boss babe. (By the way, the term boss babe is a mental state so more on that later.)
1. I’m going to a coffee shop 2-3 times this week and let Luca bond with his daddy. And I’m not going to feel guilty about it. I am going to use that time of glorious un-interruption to my full advantage. I’m going to do all the things. Follow up, write, edit, plan, book events etc.
2. Meal prep. Last night I threw together some chicken soup on the fly. Everything was already prepared and cooked. I just had to marry the flavors in some broth and voila! My boys devoured this 5-minute meal. It was so easy and I know I should do more prep to have even more ease this week.
3. Clean house. When the house is clean and organized, ideas flow. My head is clear. There is peace in the air. But let’s be honest. Luca disorganizes like it’s his job so, there’s that. I’ll just do my best and involve him in my cleaning goals. The other day he took it upon himself to clean the windows and it melted my heart.
4. I’m going to shower and wear real clothes AND put makeup on. Hello, boss babe state of mind. I have better energy when I’m put together. I’m more confident, open to spontaneity, and in a better mood overall. I’ve always said applying lip-gloss gives me energy. Weird but true.
5. 30 minutes of physical activity is a must, which is the 2nd component of the boss babe state of mind. We all know exercise releases endorphins and it’s a healthy habit. I’m going to be disciplined and fit it in.
What’s your biggest challenge at home?
Sweet little boy was feverish last night amd asked me this morning if he could "stay home and watch tv all day," so I made the appropriate arrangements. So grateful for an awesome job where I have a flexible schedule to accommodate these situations. #mysweetboy#sickboy#restday#randr
Love this beautiful angel so much💛 so proud he is potty training and yest we were out from 10am to 4pm and he went to the toilet every time he needed in that time out💥👍👍such a proud mommy!! #growinguptofast#helovesundies#mysweetboy
at some point this little boy with a squeaky voice that was always by my side turned into this young man whose almost taller than me & gets embarrassed when i walk him to school. he’s the one that goes to bible study on sunday’s when none of the others go, he’s the one that helps me play pranks, he’s the one that will pray for me right when i ask him too, he’s the one that eats ice cream with me, he’s the one that wants me to clean his toes and clip his fingernails, he’s my little baby & i am so proud of him. he’s the one who got lost from his family when he was 4, too young to know his mother’s real name or remember where he was from, in october we will go to a place to try our luck on finding a family member. please pray with me. #mylittlebaby#haiti#travel#mysweetboy#growingtoofast#mybaby
The patient is on the mend for sure but still a long way from being himself and feeling better. I was able to leave him this morning to go swim and he was “talking” to me when I came home so that is GREAT!!! A few more days and he’ll be back! #tucker#getwellsoon#mysweetboy
Training for my first #Pinkathon happening in#Bhandup and I am excited that I got to know a bunch of lovely ladies already training on every week end.Last week end for me was most amazing, as I joined them early in the morning for a good 5k Walk(cum Run) in the super rain I would say..( Finally got a chance to drench in Mumbai rain as well) and followed by 1 hour of regime Yoga training.It was so blissful that body thanked me for that. Training done what about BF who will go and cook???? so when I entered home I am seeing that Suda Suda idli with tomato chutney is waiting for me made my one n only VJ #whatalife#kyabhaathai#mysweetboy#loveyouforever#Pinkathon#selflove#motivation 💯 #inspirationfromig#bhanduptraining
Five years ago I had the joy of meeting this little guy. He stole my heart right away and has always been the sweetest little boy with a quick smile and big hug. He pretty much has everyone wrapped around his little fingers and he knows it. He’s a stereotypical little brother and drives Brady bonkers, but she loves him fiercely and he loves her right back. It’s been fun seeing their relationship grow. We didn’t know what we were missing until he joined our family and we are all so thankful for the privilege of being his people. #happybirthdayCade#thebigfive#fiveyearsold#imnotcrying#yesiam#mysweetboy
My boy had dental work and a benign mass removed. And the past 3 days of 10 hr shifts serving drinks to an entitled and bossy group of science types was totally worth it. He might disagree tho .
Our big boy has been so helpful with mommy since he found out we were going to have another baby💙 during our trip he held my hand while going up the steps to the arches (since I had sandals on 😂) he is such a good boy and will continue to be an amazing kuya😍 #thatsmiletho#myhandsome
Hal yg mungkin terjadi "question of life" Ketika sudah punya momongan adalah...........status yg isinya selalu mendebatkan kehebatan ibu berkarier VS ibu rumah tangga !
Yg sy amati sebagai newbiemak, menjadi ibu baru bahkan senior jg bukan jaminan matangnya pola pikir, asuh dan asih. Karna pada praktiknya setiap ibu dikasih tantangan dgn kondisi anak yg berbeda2.
Perubahan zaman, hingga aturan rumah tangga yg setiap gubuk mempunyai gaya hidup dan lingkungan yg berrrrrbeda2.
Dengan sistem parenting yg terbaik jika diterapkan dari semua versi akan lebih berimbas menuntut sikecil jadi sempurna dimata public. (Paradigma anak kecil yg sll identik kudu gemuk, bnyk maemnya, bs mandiri, pinter macem2, juara, kendel, lucu udah bisa ini itu duluan dsb. Kalo ga bs kaya gt yg disalahain emaknya. (*bener tapi sadis)😁
Kalau udah gini siapa yg happy? Mereka?
Tidak juga..lalu siapa? Embuh.. serumit itukah jadi ibu yg baik???
Karna kalo belajar dari guru kecilku aku kok jadi tak merasa demikian. "Aku pengen nya menerimamu apa adanya, seperti kamu menerimaku tanpa cela beserta segala kekurangannya."
Lalu, "buat apa membuatmu tampak sempurna seperti kata mereka, kalau hanya dgn melihat tingkah polahmu saja sudah bisa membuatku bahagia hingga merasa jadi wanita sempurna ( beruntung terpilih jadi ibumu)😊 Kesuksesan?
Masih misteri. Lihat sj dewasamu nanti, jadi mengapa harus tergesa dan berlomba2 kalo semua itu sudah ada masanya. Rupanya sabar juga tak sekedar menahan amarah.
Yg bisa menilai niat mulia dan tulus tanpa embel2 yg lain ini ya cuma Ilahi.
Yasudahlah... Jadilah Ibu yg bahagia.😊
Jadilah Ibu yg bersyukur.😊
Jadilah Ibu untuk anakmu.😊
Hidup emak2 ✊
Swipe to see why I'm all out of sorts today! ➡️
Yes, my son is turning 4 tomorrow!! 🎁🎉 I didn't expect to be quite so emotional today. 😢♥️
I was tearing up in the middle of the Walgreen's greeting card isle while picking out a card ... yes, I'm a softie. But he's my baby! 👶➡️🧒➡️👦🏼
Growing up too fast! .
I looked through the journal I kept while I was pregnant. 🤰 My notes about how I felt, when I began feeling his kicks, drs appointments, and of course ultrasounds. 🤱 That brought on even more emotions. .
And now I see what a sweet, polite, adventurous, spontaneous, smart, loving, fun, generous boy you're becoming. It makes my heart ♥️ so happy! .
I am so blessed to be your mommy. Thank you for coming into this world and completely changing mine. 🌏💕
Anyone else have a hard time when their babies turned 4, or celebrated another birthday? 🎂🍰
My tender-hearted boy was so sweet to me today. He knew I was sad about Wesson (I decided it was time for his bowl and bed to be put away so I was a little tearful) and first he put Wesson’s picture on my nightstand “so you can see him when you get up”. Then he drew me a picture and wrote me a letter. “Dear mommy, I know how sad you are so I’m going to make a card and picture of you and Wesson in the backyard. Please feel better Mommy. I want you to hug me a lot so I will hug you and your [sic] the best. Love, Luke”. I just can’t even. I didn’t even correct his your vs you’re, that’s how sweet he was and how off guard it caught me! #kidsjustknow#fromthemouthsofbabes#mysweetboy#firstborn#besthugs#tenderheart#missmyrottie#smithandwesson#wesson
My sweet precious boy...
I love how you enjoy my silly singing and how you giggle with all your might when I make funny noises at you.
I love how you smile really big when I blow you kisses and how you sweetly whimper when I have to walk away from you.
I love how you rub and touch my face so lovingly and look into my eyes like you’ve known me forever. •••••••••••••••••••••••••
I love how you give me the sweetest little hugs and how you’ve become a master at smiling with those beautiful eyes.
And I especially love how even though you’re a sweet boy who flashes that flirty smile at everyone, you make me feel so special to be your Mama. •••••••••••••••••••••••••
I’m so grateful to be your mama, my sweet boy, and I will forever strive to be the best mama ever for you. 😘
I love that my son woke up this morning and was excited to get ready and look good for school. He doesn’t care that it’s a Monday. He loves school. I listened to him tonight as he was telling me that kids at school shoved him while he was in the bathroom and that other kids pulled his tie off. He is such a sweet kid with a huge heart and I worry about him every day. When I expressed concern, asked more detailed questions, and then asked why he thought they did that his response was, “they probably just had to let out their anger somewhere”. But my sweet young boy, it is not okay for them to let out anger on you. This parenting thing through public school is not going to be easy.
