Reading to babies improves language and cognitive development 📚
Daniella was not really a big fan of books (she couldn't sit still to finish one 🙄) but has recently come around and is loving story time!
Her favorite books are these touchy-feely 'That's not my..' series. They are perfect for babies and toddlers as they are very engaging & colorful, contain lots of new vocabulary and the different materials used are great for sensory development.
Sun dried tomato & Garlic Pesto ( this one is on demand by my girls, for our cheese and cracker time)........ Boil sun dried tomatoes for 5 mins and leave aside for 10. Drain and chop them into pieces ( these are organic tomatoes grown at our farm in Gujrat, India. And dried in Solar Cooker. Preserves the colour, taste and texture). Heat regular olive oil and add finely chopped garlic pieces as per your taste, some fennel seeds, salt, chopped dry Kashmir red chillies and sun dried tomatoes. Sauté for 7 mins on low flames till water evaporates. Let it cool down and add good amount of extra virgin olive oil. Can be stored in refrigerator for up to 1 month. Capers go very well with this but we skipped them this time. #nehauj22#nehaujrecipes#foodie#instafood#instagood#food#tasty#vegan#natural#organic#yummy#eat#home#simple#fun#kids#happy#momofgirls#canbejain

All of this talk about a weight loss app for children makes me feel defeated.
Is every child who uses it going to form an eating disorder? Maybe not. But teaching children that there are good foods and bad foods and that eating a certain way should be done to make their parents happy is going to help children slowly slip into dieting for the rest of their lives.
Maybe they have the right idea? Or their heart is in the right place? Childhood obesity is an issue that needs to be addressed. .
But it starts with us. It starts with our relationship with food. We have to understand nutrition and what foods are better for fueling our bodies than others, and also that getting pizza for dinner because there was no time to make anything is fine too. We need to teach our brains to listen to our bodies cues when it tells us it doesn’t need any more food so that we can teach that to our children. .
Us parents have grown up in a diet culture full of restriction but our children do not have to. Break the cycle. Instead of allowing an app to educate your children, take this opportunity for learning and grow with them. .
Educate yourself, educate your children, and allow them to become intuitive eaters who respect their bodies. .
She wanted to look like mama today.🤷🏼♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Lordy, if you think your kids aren’t watching what you do you...YOU CRAY. She even has a messy bun with a Bobby pin, because it had to be just like mine.🤣🤣🤣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your life is a movie they’re constantly watching. Make sure it’s one your proud for them to live out.❤️
Phase 1 is officially done! 20 days, 20 workouts
At first I was a little upset I didn't see more progress but then I remembered, it's only been 20 days! I am just at the beginning, there is still plenty of time for lots of progress
Changes don't happen over night. They don't happen in a couple weeks. Changes take hard work and time. I am not in this for a quick fix, I am doing this to make a lifestyle change. I am on this journey to not just see results physically but mentally as well!!
The girls told me they are hiring someone to handle all of my emails, IG messages and phone calls because we need more family time! Smart kids, I guess I’m hiring!? Send resumes!

This one’s for you Nancy🤷🏼♀️ ———————————————————————— You will always find that a percentage of people throughout your business will just sit back waiting to see if you fail. Should that discourage you? Not in the slightest, in fact it should be that kick start to push your ass closer to the finish line😘 By then, you’ll be too far for Nancy to even see you✨ #KeepPushing#TurnNegativeVibesToPositiveVibes

Isn't it funny how you can learn so much from children. This girl right here is so focused on everything she does!
She doesn't lift her head to get distracted until she finishes what she's doing!
Do you know someone who is always telling you why it can’t work? -
You have an exciting idea, goal or dream that you shared with your tribe and now you are suddenly questioning your plan. Maybe they are right. Maybe it won’t work. -
Friends, don’t allow the fears of others to become yours. You have a desire. It was placed on your heart by your higher power. It is yours for the taking. -
Don’t lose your passion just because someone in your circle is too scared to chase their own dreams. -
Don’t allow their story to become yours. Stay focused on the outcome you desire. Don’t worry about how you will get there. The “how” is none of your concern. -
Get clear on your purpose, know your TRUE why, start taking action now. I can help you stay the course. I can help you learn how to overcome the obstacles you and others will throw in your path. DM me and let me know you are ready to chase your desires.
Esattamente un anno fa, alle 18.56 nascevi tu piccola polpetta e con te rinascevo un po’ anche io perché diciamocelo: la maternità trasforma nel bene e nel male e chi si era prima non lo si sarà mai più…. Sono passati solo 365 giorni ma a me sembra ne siano passati almeno 3 milioni… sono successe così tante cose: l’allattamento, il tiralatte, lo svezzamento, il Natale, le vacanze, la neve e il caldo, i denti, i primi gattonamenti: insomma quel fagottino minuscolo che non sapevo bene da che parte prendere si e’ trasformato in una bambina bellissima e vivace.grazie per avermi scelto come la tua mamma ❤️ auguri polpetta del mio cuore
Mamma e papà ti amano ❤️
Why do we yawn? Have you ever wondered what this strange bodily reflex is, what triggers it and when it happens most? 💤 We did! So we dove into some research and wrote a whole blog post about it so that, if you’re nosy, you can just nip over to the link in bio and find all the answers right there✨
Here’s a few snaps of Mom of Nightire (bc founder @niensclark is @ernavanschoor youngest) just coz they are so lovely and made for a great insta-pic but have nothing to do with yawning😂💁🏼♀️📸 #whywesleep
✨First Day of School 🍎📚🚌 Camrynn is going into 5th grade and Charlie is starting Kindergarten! So excited for a new year and watching these girls grow. How adorable are these paper banners by @chereeberrypaper the perfect addition to our first day photos!! Use code: “SCHOOLTIME” for 15% off
This is what you call a GIRL GANG lol Can you believe I literally have all these mini me’s! I get so many messages asking about parenting and how I seem to manage taking care of myself as well as multiple children. Answer is: there is no straight answer. Regardless of what you may see or not see on social media, every parent goes through different emotions and situations in their lives. It’s ok to make mistakes, it’s ok to take time for yourself, and it’s ok for you to ask for help when needed. Don’t make the mistake of striving for perfection while parenting, trust me it won’t happen lol and if you think it will, kids will bring you right back to reality quicker than a heartbeat! I definitely had to learn really quick that it’s ok to take my supermom cape off and be human! I pray for and with my children, try my best to be a great example of what a woman should strive to be, and consistently love/ enjoy life with them because tomorrow isn’t promised for any of us! Have you experienced the same yet with expectations? #mommyandme#teamgirls#motherdaughter 📷 @raekadephotography

I know why opposites attract.
It's so I don't spend our entire budget on kid's clothes and coffee runs.
I'd stay up all night, you tell me to get some sleep.
I'm a feeler, you're a thinker.
I put up pictures, you'd rather decorate your mind with the memories.
You'd still be wearing clothes from college, never realizing trends change.
That brick of a flip phone you carry keeps me grounded.
I'd go way left, passionate and shouting. You'd saunter right, calm and reasonable.
We pull each other back to center.
You see the good in situations even when I swear it's not there.
When revenge is tempting, you wrap me in a white flag.
You'd never know Miley and Liam broke up, or even who they are.
I keep you up to speed, and you slow me down.
You'd work till retirement, I lobby for a vacation.
While I make sure we enjoy the present, you plan for our future.
I swear we're messing the kids up, you insist we're doing a good job.
All the things about you that drive me crazy, make us work.
I never knew why opposites would attract, until I met you.

Someone else will do it 🙅🏼♀️🙅🏼♀️🙅🏼♀️In the mean time @badassparentingclub and I will be filling out the piles and piles of back to school paperwork trying not to get a hand cramp🖊📋 #backtoschool#youvegotmail
