Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.

My very own Christmas ornament 😍😂We’ve decked the halls, we’ve trimmed the tinsel, we’ve wrapped the pressies & my oath, we’ve definitely watched every Christmas movie under the sun 🎄Now we just standing here waiting for Santa 😂😍
Do you ever find yourself engaging in negative self-talk, or doubting something about yourself or your life after scrolling through Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, or Facebook?
Negative comparisons as a side effect of OVERusing toxic tech is something that affects the whole family! From us parents to our teenagers, and even our youngest kids at home. Imagine the effects this has on our kids’ mental health and wellbeing given they are younger, whose brains are more vulnerable and impressionable.
Here at Dolphin Kids, we have an exciting announcement coming up about our #TechDietChallenge with some amazing partnerships and prizes to be won! Let’s make 2019 a #HealthyTechDiet year. ❤️🐬

It’s 3 minutes until midnight here so it still counts... right? I went back and forth today on which photo to post. How do I want to start off this amazing challenge. And then I got caught up in the moment, as I have been doing more and more lately, and it just happened. I took the perfect photo, which a friend that I met from slinging. My heart if so full and thankful tonight as I reflect back on my amazing baby wearing journey and all the fulfilling relationships it’s given me. Both with my children, and some pretty remarkable women too.
#AD Did you know that it’s so important for everyone in your family to brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day?
Well we’ve been doing just that, by adding a make believe dentist and an alternative to the Baby Shark song into our morning and bedtime routine. Do you know what? It is working. My daughter loves to brush her teeth, and we are also doing the same with my six month old baby who has just got his first teeth.
@aquafreshuk have a full range of toothbrushes and toothpastes for every age group, and we’ve been using these alongside their fun and nifty app to ensure that we brush our teeth for the golder two minutes twice a day.
See how we do that and the words to the alternate Baby Shark song by clicking the link in the bio #BrushTimeFun

So so proud of my big boy Miles! 💙 Today he received a special achievement award in assembly for pre-primary, one of only 4, & the only boy to receive one!
His certificate read:
“Awarded for being an absolutely delightful class member. His manners and behaviour are exemplary. Miles is very caring and considerate towards his classmates and he always helps those in need. Miles tries his very hardest in all tasks and has made some fantastic leaps and bounds in his learning this year. Great work Miles, on an excellent year in pre-primary! I am so very proud of you!”

And so this jingle story goes,
There was a little elf who never froze, Who jumped up and down, side to side,
She definitely was taking her Mama for a ride,
So here she is caught in the act,
Looking ever so cute as a matter of fact 🎅🏼 #christmasrhymes
So after a night where I witnessed the 'perfect storm' of parenting (see previous post), the boys look at me this morning as if nothing happened, I on the other hand feel like death warmed up 😱🙄. Next decision to make is if to get the big man off to preschool, all he has atm is a cough, oh and I'm supposed to be Xmas shopping today, it never rains eh 🙄😱💙
At the top of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, a few Christmas Days ago. It was COLD and WINDY up there! Fab way to spend Christmas though. .................. Continuing the Christmas trip throwbacks, this is our the short skiing bit of our 2014 European train adventure, when we quite rashly decided to haul our 3 children and 10 quite large bags across 6 countries via 12 train trips in 14 days. It's definitely a trip that's gone down in family folklore for its disastrous moments (involving diarrhoea, coughing, nits and missing trains — sometimes all at the same time) but also for the sheer magical delight of moving across a snowy continent by train. .. Details on the blog :-)⠀

"In this time of extraordinary pressure, educational and social, perhaps a mother’s first duty to her children is to secure for them a quiet growing time, a full six years of passive receptive life, the waking part of it spent for the most part out in the fresh air." - Charlotte Mason
Favourite part of our weekend away has to be Nora’s latest venture into songwriting. It goes a little something like this... ‘balls out, fires on, marshmallows roasting by the fire’ 🎶😂🙈😂🙈. n.b by balls out, she means her bingo game we played all weekend 😂🙈😂. Genuinely haven’t laughed so much in forever 😂❤️😂

Have you ever had the feeling to press the pause button - to stop time? I have that - a lot - I wish everything and everyone could just be still for a while to be able to see all the beauty around us, to see humanity... and then consciously move on...
Kennst du das Gefühl? den Wunsch einfach mal das Leben anzuhalten- auf Pause zu drücken? Ich hab das - oft sogar... still stehen, zu beobachten...und dann wieder bewusst weiter gehen...
