Regrann from @gnsleepsite - SLEEP TIP // Don't believe the hype! Your toddler still needs a nap. Know your child and watch their signs. Their mood is a key indicator on whether or not their nap is still required.

Here’s how to manifest more moments of happiness in your current life. Read on below for reflective exercise to get you there. .
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Take 15 minutes without distraction to reflect on the last time you truly felt happy. Who were you with? What were you doing? What thoughts did you have? What was happening around you? Do you recall any scents? Get specific on the details of that time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.
Once you’ve answered the questions, start implementing those aspects into your present life. Reflect and repeat. Would love to hear what your happy is below :) We are #strongertogethermommas 💙

Some friends! My aunt rescued some black swallowtail caterpillars from pesky birds in her garden, so she brought them over so they could stay with us! They are soon about to make their chrysalis I’m sure. 🤞 I feed them parsley daily, they have lots of air in their bug house and they seem happy. 🐛I will let them go when they’ve completely transformed. I just want them to live a decent life, where it’s safe, for now. 💚

What summer days are made for!!! 🌊🌞🏖 @henandco

It’s hot, Texas HOT🔥Like you melt the minute you walk outside temps😥 So we’ve been keeping busy inside making slime today. We’ve tried different recipes and found one we really like, we added essential oils and the slime smells AMAZING! •
Ingredients

Elmer’s glue
1 Tsp Baking Soda
4-6 drops of the Essential oil of your choice
Food coloring
Contact lens solution, about 3 tablespoons
Airtight container
Plastic spoon for mixing

Directions

Pour glue into a mixing bowl. Add food coloring. 2-3 drops
Add baking soda and mix with plastic spoon.
Slowly add contact lens solution one tablespoon at a time.
Continue mixing in the bowl until the glue has clumped together, and is no longer sticking to the sides of the bowl. Add more contact solution until you have achieved the correct consistency.
Add essential oils and kneed with your hands.
Store in an airtight container when not in use.
Have fun with it👍🏼

Parenting can be very tiring. We’re in our 20th year. All we want now is rest. Hikes are Hike & Rest experiences. I may write this book for parents: the Hike and Rest Guidebook for Parents Who Are Fucking Tired. We’re no longer THAT tired (the baby toddler years were those days), but we still find some days that parenting pushes us to our edges. Jacob took this photo. Tim has the hiking guidebook in his hands. The book said this was a “ramble.” Huh? Maybe for twenty-year-olds without kids. But we made it. And it was hard and beautiful and just when I thought I couldn’t go on I realized that with some rest on a rock, water and then laying on a tree trunk in shade eating a plum...that I could. Now we want to do it again. Just like parenting.

One more day until Seb breaks up from school. He is utterly exhausted and is definitely ready for the break and I can’t wait to have him with me full time again. His first year has gone so quickly and it’s making me panic that in another year Roo will be starting school and I’ll have lost them a little bit. But then I look at how much Seb has grown this last year and how much he loves school and I know it is all going to be ok. Maybe we’ll get a dog!

It’s been all about the nudes this week.

Feelings and emotions are totally a way of expressing how we feel right? But sometimes they can really get the better of us.

"What about socialization?" - the #1 question after being asked if they go to school and my reply is "no, they are homeschooled". .
.
Well, they go to the park, grocery shopping, library, public pools, water parks, entertainment centers, community functions, play with the children of Mama's friends, and hanging out with family members. They 'socialize' every day with whomever they meet, just in a more, natural setting. They talk with people of all colors, shapes, sizes, religious backgrounds, and ages. As they grow older there will be internships, apprenticeships, sports clubs, and the like that will continue to foster and fulfill their passions and needs. .
.
And will they grow up to be weird and sheltered? Well I went to both public and private school during my schooling years, traveled to 10 different countries by the age of 25 and still considered to be 'weird', 'strange', 'socially awkward' and the 'black sheep' (ask my childhood friends and blood relatives. So yes they will because it is in their DNA 😉😋

Woke up a few days ago to SO many new followers. Not sure how but so thankful to have you here & to get the chance to know you! Thought I’d take a minute to introduce myself...
👄
I’m Ramee. Mom of 3-Raising 2 preteens and loving/ missing a babe in Heaven. I’m deeply connected to the rare disease community because Mabel suffered with & died from batten disease.
⭐️
I am an artist at heart. A free spirit, deep thinker, self reflector & truth seeker. I’m into anything outdoors {especially in the sunshine}, love to travel, can be a coffee snob, enjoy bright colors, own a successful beauty business, cut & color my own hair constantly, am a lover of exercise, the quiet & a good, dark binge-worthy show series.
🔮
I am stupidly in love with my super hot husband, am currently enjoying summer to it’s fullest but am the queen of all things Fall and cannot wait for the leaves to change to a deep orange. We leave in a few days to our favorite family vacation spot in Northern Michigan & I cant wait to relax in the less humid weather that awaits!
💛
Your turn! Tell me something you love, something I don’t know about you, your favorite vacation spot, favorite season...anything at all!

In the thick mist of motherhood

The desire to tug at one’s hair

And pull at one’s skin

Is intense.

There are jokes about
Mothers hiding in the closet

The bathroom, the pantry

Anywhere that locks.

Anywhere they can find refuge.
But I know why they are there.

There is too much
Placed on the shoulders of a mother.

And you know what thanks she gets?

None.

She is supposed to be satisfied by the errant “I love yous”

So seldom let lose
From the lips

Of those she bore.
It’s not enough

To say women can have it all

When they can’t even

Have what they want

Or what they wished for.

#throwbackthursday nearly five years ago... when my son was the age my daughter is now. They’re such different personalities, but they both sort of “came online” (I call it) around five. That’s when then started to help out more, sleep through the night more, talk more!! (Omg now they never shut up). It’s a magical age. Trying hard to hold onto the memories of it!! 💗

Do you go through the week without being aware of the day of the week? ⠀⠀
After a long restless night of being up with the kids due to rotating nightmares between them—this is my facial expression after realizing it’s only Thursday 😜. Can Friday come already? .

Getting on a jet plane today to be back in the UK tomorrow. I have had an amazing break. I have had two complete weeks off and I have not even had a chance to read a book! It’s been adventures everyday! Next week I am teaching 4 new students so I will be fully back into the swing of things. This holiday has been a complete separation from my business for the first time in 10 years! I have renewed energy to start a whole range of new projects for this year!

What you focus on becomes your reality. Even if you are holding on to things that make you feel secure in your attachment-let go of what does not serve you and focus on what you want in your life even if it is not yet here. It can feel impossible at first as your mind fits back into familiar patterns but the freedom from the release is sweet. I have done these several times in my life with things that don’t serve me. I can’t even remember now what hold they had on me and why. Your attention and intention is so powerful...focus on happy.
