I'm so excited for my new side tables. I don't know why furniture brings me so much joy, maybe because clothes don't look nearly as cute when you're all squishy. But anyways. Furniture is where it's at! πŸŽ‰ #bedroommakeover #bluebirdkisseshome #widn

Ok so I want to explain something since I think my last post raised a few issues. Cry it out. I think the method totally works and I don't think it's bad that parents do it, mine included. They let me CIO and honestly I don't think there any way I could be closer to them now. They're the most amazing parents. There is NO right way to parent. CIO, attachment parenting, co sleeping or whatever. Breastfeeding or bottle feeding. You do what you need to do, you're an expert on your kids and your life and I don't think one way is right. There's only "what's right for you" or "me" for that matter. Just because I can't let my baby cry overnight doesn't make me a better mom IMO. It's just my way. The post wasn't really meant as a debate and I want to make sure no one feels crappy about it. The post was/is my update, my way, right or wrong it's how I'm doing it. That's it. Super simple. Ok off my soap box and off to enjoy a coffee 🀣 #soapbox #norightwaytoparent

Our porch skylights are in and the brightness in my living room now is amazing! I had to share because I'm so frigging excited. The main floor of our semi has always been dark and now it feels bright even on a cloudy day like today. It's so crazy to see what a difference a small change can make...sorry I get way too excited about this stuff πŸ˜… thank you Joey @saldanbuilt πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ #wind #bluebirdkisseshome #light

Dirty feet, hands and face calls for an early bath time...Magnus was so happy! And someone commented yesterday about how they felt better seeing s little chip on my doorway...so this one is for you girl! So many chips on all our old doors because whoever had the house before just painted over top of old paint and ow the crooked doors stick shut. So give me all the chipped doorways! πŸ€£πŸ’• #bathtime #bluebirdkisseshome #mommyandme

"most of all i think i miss the ease of the past. big worries like studying for exams or how to make it to the weekend with enough cash left to be able to meet my friends for drinks, have been replaced by sheer terror at anything that has the potential to catastrophically alter the course of life for my sons. and everything falls under that umbrella, friends, johannes' dislike of art, strangers, magnus' explosive personality, their failure to eat the required amount of greens or losing a precious hour of sleep. this is motherhood. love and worry, love and worry." some thoughts on mum-hood on BBK today (link in the bio) #bluebirdkisseshome #rufusandmurdog #blogged

Better late than never my finished gallery wall post is up on the blog. @canoncanada #canonpixmapro100 #bluebirdkisseshome

Inspecting all the kitchen drawers and eagerly pulling anything within his reach into the floor. Nothing is safe and the word "no" just makes him shake his little head and giggle uncontrollably. #babymagnus #bluebirdkisseshome

It's been one of those days that just kept on going and going and going some more. I'm counting down to bed time so I can quietly make strawberry jam and get some time to blog. #brothers #minggisandjohannesandmagnus #camouflagedcat #bluebirdkisseshome

It's quiet here. And Magnus is all kinds of curious lately. He will scoot and roll and twist himself to whatever destination he desires.

Well I had grand plans to go for a run after Henrik's nap, but of course he decided to nap way longer than usual so that's where we are at with things today. Unrealized plans and a dirty kitchen πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ #bluebirdkisseshome #momfail #sotired

Watching the work on the new porch is always a good idea πŸ‘€ # creepers jk. But in all seriousness it's the best form of entertainment for everyone under 7 in this house. #bluebirdkisseshome #myhomesense

Almost at that weird awkward stage in life where diapers, pants and snap bottoms just don't quite fit over the chubb. All those late night calories are catching up to him and that cute baby bottoms is looking mighty plump πŸ‘πŸ—πŸ‘πŸ— #momsbed #bluebirdkisseshome #baby

I don't know who missed who more... the puppy or the baby ❀️#homesweethome #bluebirdkisseshome #myhomesense β€’ @skiphop activity table

I know it's still summer and sandal weather but fall and winter are really not that far away. I figured I'd better get ready for the million and one hats and mitts and scarves we'll all be wearing and bought two giant baskets for under the console. One for winter stuff and one for blankets...now I'm trying to decide if I actually like how it looks... clearly I spend too much time at home πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ #bluebirdkisseshome #livingroom #exposedbrick PS I've added the sources in the tags now for you.

She's blending in...camouflage on point. Seriously though, one of the best things we did was adopt Maddie last summer. Minus the whole eating and barfing poop on my carpet fiasco, the rest is golden. Also that's the explanation for this new carpet, which I kind of like... thoughts?! #bluebirdkisseshome #rescuedogs #adoptdontshop

Scenes from my morning...sometimes I swear the 6year age gap is the best ever. πŸ’” the way Johannes looks at Henrik, the way Henrik looks at his oldest brother. It's magic I tell ya! #brothers #love #bluebirdkisseshome

My sweet Henrik, you win the record for youngest baby in our household to get hit with a terrible childhood virus. But after an epic 14hour sleep, your fever is gone, your smile is back and I feel like I can breathe again πŸƒthere also a new BLOG post about our napping routines and kids who wake up cranky...my kids that is. The link is in my profile. #happy#bluebirdkisseshome #baby

I spent all of today with a sleeping Henrik on my chest, but I I did make a few fun summer weekend getaway plans so all is not lost. Turns out all you need to do that is your phone lol πŸ˜‚ I don't know if I'm ready to commit to an out of country airplane trip just yet, if I'm perfectly honest I am a bit introverted and prefer to be close to the safety of my home and my routine rather than the unknown. But a couple of nights away here and there, all within driving distance, I think we can manage. Ontario is pretty beautiful this time of year too so road tripping it is. Countdown to the kids' summer break is on! #bluebirdkisseshome

So I'm still over here rocking out to a brutal fever that just won't go away. But during my Advil high this morning I managed to finish my blog post recap of the weekend. Complete with our favourite bug catcher kit that keeps Johannes and Magnus busy for hours and hours on end. Now I think I'll try to go lie down until I'm feeling normalish again to at least no longer have a headache and chills. #blogged #bluebirdkisseshome #brothers

I suppose someone should fold it πŸ™„πŸ–πŸΌ #idrathernot #bluebirdkisseshome #laundry

See those there baskets...yea both of them? That's laundry that needs to be folded. But I find myself alone today with Henrik who is currently napping...and I'm pretty sure the laundry folding will have to wait. 😴 #bluebirdkisseshome #laundryfordays

"Mom I'm scared." // "of what Magnus?"// "I dunno." Giggle giggle. #wednesday #bluebirdkisseshome #magnussays"Mom I'm scared." // "of what Magnus?"// "I dunno." Giggle giggle. #wednesday #bluebirdkisseshome #magnussays

How many boys can you stuff into one baby nursery?? Diaper changing brigade in full effect πŸ’”#boys #brothers #baby #babyspam #bluebirdkisseshome

Repost from @bluebirdkisses using @RepostRegramApp - Mornings look a little bit like this. Inseparable. Johannes complained to me the other day that it's not fair that he's not Henrik's mommy because if he was then he could hold him all the time. πŸ’” ahhhh can't even. Better than a puppy I guess. #brothers #bluebirdkisseshome #babyspam
