  • ⭐️TAPE RESCUE⭐️ Shout out to everyone with a “taby” in your life right now 👊🏻 I know that life well 😬 “Taby” (rhymes with baby) has always been my made up word for that middle ground between baby and toddler 🤷🏻‍♀️ You know, that phase where they definitely aren’t a baby anymore but also really aren’t a toddler yet 😱 It’s different for each kid but those are some challenging months 😭 They have all the will and desires of a toddler but none of the motor skills or attention span to make things happen 🌤 This was a big time favorite back in the “Taby Matt” days ❤️ Just tape down some toys to a cookie sheet or high chair or airplane tray table 😉 and let them go to work 🙌🏻 It is a long of fine motor skill work, concentration and problem solving for them to make this happen ‼️ These little animals Matt is using are from @lakeshorelearning and the cookie sheet is of questionable cleanliness but he’s working his tail off here 🎉 And that’s a big deal and a big win ‼️ I always joke that you know you’re in “Taby” mode when you could activity success in seconds and brief minutes 🤣🤣 If you are looking for more taby activities - check out the link in my profile to my favorite list of them ❤️

  • ::LONG CAPTION ALERT:: I've been sitting on this post for a few days. I knew what I wanted to say but I wanted sufficent time to allow my thoughts to gather into a meaningful caption. I've been noticing more of a link to blogging while writing captions lately, and I suppose it makes sense because in the end they're both content that takes time to create quality work.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recently, I had my most meaningful social media interaction in a long time. An expecting mother from across the world found my page after searching for Arthur's condition (PHPV/PFV and Micropthalmia). Without divulging all of the personal details of the conversation we shared, she said "The only page that gave me hope and courage was yours". ❤😭❤
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And that filled my cup. 👍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have a love/hate relationship with social media (ironic considering it's my side-gig) and can find it draining if I spend too much time consuming it. But when I spend time actually contributing, creating, and connecting, it feels so incredible! 🌈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So here's the link to @pfvpeople if you also have a child or yourself or future child (you get the picture) with Arthur's conditions- there's a ton of us and we have our own online community with variable outcomes and related conditions. I've also blogged a his entire discovery story if it interests you and you can find those links through my link in bio.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I may not be able to change Arthur's outcome of only having vision in one eye, but I can create the resources and content to help future mothers and families in a way that I didn't have. 💕

  • It finally happened 😭😭 after 3.5 years of growing out her beautiful hair with the softest little curls, my big Bestie asked me to cut it short last night 😭 a simple bang trim turned into a full on cut so she could match with her bff @ preschool. 
I held back my tears because I loved her long hair so much, but afterward she said “Mommy I am so happy now!” #haircutsbymom #toddlerlife #firsthaircut

  • Forever trying to steal my shakes! Even after she drinks her own for breakfast EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING. I don’t mind because I know that she is getting all of her nutrients! She has had a shake since she started growing inside of me 4 years ago!

  • All he wants to do is play with cars and trucks, or do “nothing” - which is code for staying home. I’m clearly not the kind of parent who can constantly look for educational things to keep this kid busy. Maybe that bit of boredom will breed creativity.
.
So Paddy’s imagination turns styrofoam support packaging into buses, coffee tables turn into ovens, and receipts become dollar bills. But there’s still no replacement for playing with others. .

  • Sometimes the opportunities that we’ve been praying for are right in front of us but we miss them because they come in ways we don’t expect them to. ♥️

  • I forgot how terrible the terrible twos are 🤦‍♀️😩 This kid refuses to sit in the stroller when picking Charlotte up from school today. Wouldn’t sit on his little bike either. And since he walks at snail speed we were late 😒 And then on the way home he refused to walk and refused sit in the stroller still. Every time I tried he screamed and then his wonderful breath holding fits would kick in 🙄 Just happy we got home before the giant rain cloud broke! 🌧.

  • These girls really do brighten every single day for me. I’ve had a tough few weeks dealing with self confidence issues and just generally being quite anxious but these girls have made every day that little bit easier (and 100 times harder at the same time but in a different way). I don’t talk about this much on here but having a husband who works away is really difficult. Sometimes, the idea of having 5 days on my own with the girls while he’s away feels like the scariest and most overwhelming thing I could ever imagine but I do find that I get into the swing of things a day or two in. Right now, I’m less than an hour into one of his trips so I’m very much so in the panic stage of this. I really hoped that things would get easier as I got more used to his job (he never flew transatlantic before the girls were born so he came home every night) but I don’t think it ever will. I suppose you don’t  marry someone or have kids with them dreaming that you’ll spend a lot of time apart. It does make me so proud seeing him working his dream job but I do find it really hard spending as much time on my own as I do. 
I have so much respect for all the single parents of twins (or even singletons) out there because I just do not know how you cope! You people must be superheroes!! .

We're in the stage where everything that's mine is his and he doesn't care if its "spicy" anymore! What tricks do you use when you don't want to share something with your kids?!
