LEARNING THROUGH PLAY: Children that are learning to eat and struggle to accept particular foods might find that they are okay to interact with the food when they are no longer EXPECTED to eat it.
This means instead of the EXPECTATION being ‘I have to eat this food’ we can suggest they EXPLORE the foods sensory properties through PLAY - a more gentle, not to mention FUN expectation which is much more conducive to tolerance and acceptance of foods. Who knows, they just might eat it! No Pressure!
Photo credit goes to my dear 7yo son who suggested I take a photo of his spaghetti knots because it might help my work.
Enjoy!

If we expect to come home and be in conflict with us, they probably will. The good news is, once we’re aware of this, we can hold higher expectations.

Being “on time” is a relative concept for us now. #ad

Tonight for me thinking about independence and anxiety.
Rose should be on her way to France right now but instead she is clinging to me for dear life!

Being no stranger to travelling without me, she often goes away with family to our french vacation house no qualms. In the last 5 hours some cord has been struck within her and as a mother i was truely scary to see. Shaking in fear, panic, heart racing and torn in two trying to understand the emotions. Wanting to go yet not being able to physically let go of me.
I have never forced rose to do something she doesn't want and never would, but sometimes she does need the encouragement to find her footing, and the umph to give it a go, yet tonight was unreal and a true eye opening for me, to see a vunerability and uncertainty. You don't really associate anxiety and panic attacks with humans so young and has truely made me take a look at what we assume our kids can cope with, it goes to show even if they have done it many times before subject is really capable to change.
So if you need me I will be holding her as tight as I can, for as long as I can and as long as she needs ♥️♥️

We are so often driven by what the world around us wants us to believe...expectations around parenting are often what leave us in a tricky place. Those ‘should’ thoughts...where we find ourselves comparing ourselves and our children and our families to what’s around us...accompanied by a sense of judgement or assessment on ok/not ok, better/worse, right/wrong. Say no to these expectations and celebrate what is wonderfully unique about you, your parenting style, your child, your family.

Accurate! Anyone else have expectations that as a SAHM you would sleep all night, sleep in with the kids, get up and get beautiful for the day and spend a wonderful afternoon playing happily with smiling children... oh that was just me? Up 4 times last night with kids just to still be woken at 630am. #mommaneedsacoffee #parentingexpectations #hopesanddreams #burnbabyburn 🤣

My view today...Looks sorta glamorous ☀️🌊 but it took a LOT to get here...
.
It took us 3 1/2 hours to get here once we started getting ready🙈😆...and we live five min away from this beach! It was hard. I feel like whenever I’m like, “hey kids, let’s do something fun!” they all three make a silent agreement to push all the buttons that I have. And they space each thing out just enough to where I eventually crack and have to make everyone go sit on their bed for their own safety 🙈🙏🏻. .
Then I repair and the cycle repeats. They can articulate why they do this. They’re afraid the fun thing will go away and they know they’re operating out of their anxiety and panic and scarcity. They are brilliant kids emotionally.
.
And my actions and fear are part of it too. I know that I’m on edge because I’m afraid of getting triggered by them and I act super-controlly out of my own fear and anxiety attempting to do something fun.
.
It’s both. Every Fun-Day I try to have zero expectations and just make myself go do the things. It doesn’t really “work” that way and there’s usually 197 parenting repairs I do along the way. But somehow, we make it here. And have the best time and are somehow closer....even though I was thisclose to staying home and putting the TV on while I read the latest @authorrsgrey novel😆. .
To all my mama friends, esp my #tbri mamas, this is hard. I’m with you. We can do hard things. I’m here for you💕. You got this😉.

"I feel so frustrated!" .
As parents, our frustration comes from two different areas. .
Ask yourself, "Why am I frustrated?" Then answer it by saying, "I am frustrated because..." Listening to your own answer will help you determine the correct solution.
.
1. Frustration from #parentingexpectations that haven't been met.
When mom's doing well, the family is doing better. If you find yourself feeling frustrated and off-balance, it could be because your expectations are off.
Solution: consider the possibility you need to modify the behavior to meet the expectation OR you need to change the expectation.
.
2. Frustration from running an old parental pattern.
As a child, you were exposed to patterns from your parents. Without even realizing it, you might be running the pattern that was modeled for you! If you're feeling as though parenting has to be stressful and hard, know that you can change your own pattern right now. Solution: tune into it, and choose out of it. Choose to feel fulfilled. Take a deep breath and choose to feel calm, collected, and balanced.

if you sit for long enough (this has been almost 9 months in the making) you will finally get a picture of both babies playing nicely together. Jenson found the anticipation unbearable for Amelia to find the ‘triangle hole’ so insisted on helping her shortly after, yet there is it 👆🏼 a small snapshot of what I thought bringing up two kids would look like. Amelia might have jam on her face and neither are actually looking at the camera, but you can’t have it all 💗💙 #parentingexpectations #vsreality #2under2 #14monthsapart #shapesorter #23monthsold #8monthsold #realparenting #parentingwin #onlytook9months #gingerbabies #mummylife #worththewait #parentingafterloss #mummyslittlegirl #mummyslittleboy #jamface #itsthelittlethings #expectationsvsreality #warmsmyheart #preciousmoments #mumswithcameras #cameramamas #instamama #instakids

Today we went to walk Griff along Aberffraw estuary. We talked expectations of one another with Caleb whilst trying to convince Griff he couldn’t pull a buoy to shore. #newborn #nappychangingduties #aberffrawbeach #marriedlife #parentingexpectations

If you are a new parent or going through postpartum for the first time or for the fifth time, you need this podcast in your life. @januaryharshe and @brandon_harshe speak about boundaries, following instincts, parenting expectations. It's all the words you need to be reminded of and simplifies some of the most challenging aspects of today's world with a generous dose of honesty and swear words. Please listen to #3, like now. You are doing amazing, Mama (and dad) and the reminder feels good to hear in a world of 'you need to do more'. #takebackpostpartum #birthwothoutfear #dontforgetaboutdads #selflove #selfcare #selfcarematters #parenting #postbaby #postpartumhealth

NEW POST | Link in profile •
This little charmer still makes his way into our bed for cuddles on the weekend ☺️ Co-sleeping was one of the "taboos" that we decided to try amongst other things that could be frowned upon. As a parent you get to decide what works for you and your baby as opposed to what's expected. You should never feel pressure to do things a certain way just because it's the norm. I've listed my some of our dos and donts on my new blog post.

I had a lot of expectations of what becoming a parent would be like until reality slapped me in the face. Pop on over to the blog to check out today's post.

And that's a wrap! 😥📃📓🖊🖋
Made it to the deadline with 5 minutes to spare. I do live dangerously. Now there's just a gazillion baskets of clean laundry to sort... at least it's clean, right? Right.
But anyway. I cannot stop reading this paper, I think I have it half memorized already. I mean, Konrad Lorenz is my kind of biologist/researcher/person. He literally had 1- an aha! light bulb moment, 2- in his backyard, 3- playing with geese 4- because he wanted to be a zoologist but had to be a "person" doctor (but he really just thought animals are so much cuter), 5- spent his entire life saying, "yeah but it's a working theory!", 6- foresaw the end of the world in the lack of maternal care and the spread of violence
You're going to rip each other apart for gooseness' sake. Sheesh. You, stop fighting yelling screaming shouting killing gutting pulling hitting.
Keep up the loving, mothers. But not too much. Or too little. But juuuuuuust right.

I love how he goes like I'm a doctor and these are the symptoms of the entire social order going out of whack and I know this for a fact quack quack quack.

Should I go on about how right he was?
