The girls are in their own world lately, and quite invested in storytelling and imaginative play. @Mattel’s Polly Pocket are portable (!) and at a 1” scale, easy to bring around with them anywhere. #PollyPocket is available at Target and Walmart. #tinyismighty #ad

I didn’t know you for too long before we became Mom and Dad, but growing with you as we raise these incredible children has been the greatest joy of my life. You are first and foremost a dedicated, loving and supportive father, and we are so grateful that you choose us every moment of every day. Learning from our parenting differences has made me a better person. Happy Father’s Day to my Justin, and to all of the dads out there who love from the inside out.

Now that school is out, quick trips to the Redwood Forest is easy before Daddy goes to work! So much to learn from these great majesties. Good foods are essential to learning, so we make sure to pack snacks like @BrainiacKids yogurt, which have as much omega-3 DHA as a kid's serving of salmon and more protein and less sugar than other kid's yogurt brands. To help celebrate all those adventurous dads this Father's Day, I've partnered with @BrainiacKids to help fuel your next outing! It's easy, just follow @BrainiacKids on Instagram and comment on your favorite brain-building activity on this post for a chance to win a Brainiac Kid's Pack that includes yogurts, a backpack cooler and a $150 voucher to a family-friendly activity of your choice! #sponsored #brainfoodforkids #giveaway

Late night dinners in the sweltering heat and forbidden treats #mustbesummer ** can someone please invent a romper that doesn’t require getting fully undressed in a public bathroom while toddlers unlock or crawl under the doors? TIA

I’ve been around the *sun a good (several) handful of times, but it’s only recently dawned on me how much my energy affects those around me. Seems so obvious! But it wasn’t until I shifted my mindset to demand self care first, that I realized how much my attitude and general state of being improved. And thus, my kids and my husband’s too. It’s not always dreamy, but the hard stuff is a heck of a lot more tolerable because I got a good, sweaty workout in.

No more hustle or frantic mornings, no more stress over tests or peer dynamics. This one is always in the sidecar, but she’s the happiest to have her sibs back on her schedule! Summer just feels like a celebration and we are so here for it.

I will unapologetically brag about my Zoe until I ride off into the sunset. She is a special kid and I’m so proud of the person, daughter, sister and friend that she is.

They might not show up properly dressed, but they are always wearing SPF in the sun! Teaming up with @AveenoUS to show how we’re staying protected all summer long. The Continuous Protection sunscreens are gentle, tear-free and rub in easily-makes for quick and easy application.
