As my good friend Chelsea always says, “the aspiration to my inspiration”.
I pray that I am giving him the best example of a God fearing mother, a supportive wife, a loyal friend, a thriving business owner, a passionate nonprofit founder, a dedicated employee and involved community activist.
Did you know? Coconut is a great source of omega 3 fats. Adding healthy fats to your snacks/meals is a great way to help you feel full longer. Coconut can help relieve morning sickness if you’re pregnant. The extra fats are perfect for baby’s developing brain. If you’re breastfeeding the fats in coconut help make your milk fattier and more nutrient dense for your babe. It also has potential to increase your milk supply because it contains lauric acid
Other great sources of coconut include coconut water, oil, and milk. Coconut water has a great balance of electrolytes and can help you stay hydrated. It also has a mild laxative effect so it’s a great drink to take when conscripted (I’ll give this to my daughter when she’s a little backed up vs miralax). Coconut oil is a great substitute for butter... use it on frying pans, melt over veggies, slice of toast with cinnamon, etc. Coconut milk can be sipped on or used as a substitute in recipes that call for milk. I’ve also mixed it into scrambled eggs
Here is the recipe I posted in my stories the other day. It’s super easy and delicious - husband and toddler approved
Pour coconut flakes onto frying pan. Sauté flakes over low-medium heat, stirring frequently (stir gently so you don’t break the flakes and end up with a bunch of crumbs!). Pour into a bowl once browned to your liking. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sea salt to taste. Cool and store in air right container. I’m not sure exactly how long it lasts - we eat it so quickly!
Eat them plain or pair with another food. I like to roll a banana in them... sounds odd but don’t knock it til youve tried it!

🌈Buggy Beat Top Tips For Potty Training🌈 👋It is important to remember this is a natural transition and to stay CALM, here are our top tips :
1. Wait until they’re ready, try not to rush them.
Don’t put too much pressure on them…Wait until your child seems ready, they’ll show you signs by possibly being more discreet when they do need to go or by simply telling you they need the toilet or that they are wet.
2. Let them go naked down below for a while in the beginning.
It makes it so much easier to go to the potty in the beginning and they were less likely to forget this way. It’s easier to do this in the summer when it’s warm so that they don’t get cold and it’s a good idea to pull up rugs etc in case of accidents so that it’s easier to just wipe the floor underneath.
3. Get the right potty training products beforehand.
You’ll need things like a potty, a step so that your child can get on and off of the toilet easily and can stand up at the sink to wash their hands. You can also get handy toddler training toilet seats, folding travel potty’s that are useful for when you go out and pull-ups for night time whilst your little one gets used to going to the toilet/potty during the day.
4. Show and teach your child.
There are some great children’s books you can get which have a clear, informative and fun story with pictures in to teach little ones all about using the potty. It’s important to show your child how the potty is going to work and what the step and other new products are there for.
5. Don’t put too much pressure on them or yourself/don’t expect too much too soon.
Take potty training at a pace that suits you both, don’t stress about everyday needing to be a dry day. Don’t be afraid to use pull ups when you go out, they can still practise using the toilet with them on.
6. Lots and lots of praise.
Praise is really important for young children and especially so when they’re potty training. Encourage them to go to the potty or toilet just before bed each night and if they stay dry then show them their dry pull up/pants and explain how proud you are of them.

Mase has 2 moods. Mood 1: I am going to stand nicely just liked you asked and smile for this photo, eat all my dinner, behave and go to bed on time. Mood 2: I am going to slowly break your self esteem all day and terrorise you until you want to hide in the bathroom, eating, and pulling your hair out! We usually get mood 2, but, today he was feeling generous! I think that’s because they break up for a week tomorrow and he knows he has plenty of time to harass me 😂🙃🤪

Jumper: TU kids at @sainsburys
Moved Jakes room round yesterday and built his new toddler bed in prep for Harry moving in with him. Harry will be in with us until December/Jan but we didn’t want Jake to feel like Harry was taking his cot bed so this way he has a couple of months to get use to his new big boy bed before Harry moves in 😬 He’s not sure about it al so far, wouldn’t nap yesterday, took a while to settle last night and is fighting a nap today but we’ll get there 💙 #mumofboys#boysroom#kidsroom#toddler#baby #
