On our #nightmarebeforechristmas episode, we discuss Sally’s abuse at the hands of Doctor Finkelstein and how it shapes her actions throughout the film. How many of us have had a parent say some version of “you’re mine you know- I made you” without being cognizant of the damage that causes? ✋

You’ll be met with lots of opinions on parenting this holiday season. Maybe some won’t verbalize their opinions directly to you. Maybe some will. Maybe you’ll remember Aunt Sally saying that your cousin lets her kids stay up too late. Or that your MIL said that her friend’s daughter can’t leave her house at certain times of the day because she’s so strict with her baby’s nap schedule.
😴
Try not to let these opinions rattle your parenting game. You know what’s right for you and your family. If you do let your kids stay up later a night or two it’s okay... you’ll be able to get them back on track! If the thought of having an over tired child is too much then stick to your schedule and don’t apologize for it.
😴
Early bedtimes and nap schedules aren’t forever. Breathe, and remember what the holidays mean to you and the memories and traditions you want to create and carry on for your family! Enjoy the season!!

These little elves have been very busy in the workshop over these last few weeks... sorry if we have been a little quiet! We are frantically finishing off your orders so that we can get them to you in good time and so that we can all have a rest over the festive period. Heres a picture of L & F looking at all of the beautiful Christmas trees... we decided to stick with our plastic one this year. Its still looking beautiful after a good eight years so why chop down a perfectly heathy spruce? We must say though... they look beautiful!

Sitting outdoors with a toddler at a restaurant is a great way to not sit down outdoors with a toddler at a restaurant. 🖤 I definitely make a better door than a window. #fruitsofmotherhood

Please don’t forget that many, many people struggle this time of year. It’s the first Christmas without my mom. There is no tree decorated at my house, there are no stocking hung, and there are two more weeks of school. A Christmas card with photos of my children in matching pajamas is a pipe dream. And, the control freak mother-in-law who is continuing to pester me about the material and sizes of the Christmas shirts she insists on purchasing for my children may cause me to lose it.

Let's talk about frustration tolerance as I find that more and more kids are not able to sit with their frustration. We all want to rescue our kids and all of us want to make sure our kids don't feel pain or discomfort. You have to realize that frustration shouldn't be viewed as painful. Being able to sit with your frustration is a skill. Knowing how to move on from failing is a skill. These are things that we have to teach our kids in this day in age especially because everything comes so easily now.... From not having to wait for food being delivered or even the easy access to information -- everything is instant. 📶📶📶
When sitting with your child remember to OBSERVE. That doesn't mean that you are going to sit there and give oohs and ahhhs and tell them how great they are OR cringe if they are not doing something right...Instead, if they are becoming frustrated to a point where they are wanting to give up simply provide some verbal guidance "hmm, perhaps you may try turning the piece to see if it will fit or flipping it over" 🧩🧩🧩
Now, how do you play with a puzzle? Your child is less likely to go up to a puzzle if it is already made. I store the pieces in a bowl as a opposed to baggies because it is not as inviting.

🎄 Holiday Travel Sleep Tip !⁣

🚗 Car naps!⁣

An occasional car nap or slightly later bedtime probably isn’t going to do too much harm, but if your baby spends a couple of days taking car seat naps here and there and having late bedtimes, she may become so overtired that by the time bedtime rolls around on day two, she has a complete meltdown and seems to “forget” all her sleep skills and just cries the house down.⁣

💤 If you’re driving to your destination, a clever trick is to schedule your driving time over baby’s naps. ⁣

Car naps aren’t ideal, but compared to no naps at all, they’re the lesser of two evils by a mile. ⁣

So if at all possible, get on the road right around the time that baby would normally be taking their first nap.⁣

Why is depression important to understand? Depression often occurs with other behavior disorders.⁣

Many times it can be overlooked because the behaviors associated with other disorders are “louder”. Check out these statistics from the CDC.⁣ ⁣
3.2% of children aged 3-17 years (approximately 1.9 million) have diagnosed depression. ⁣

𝐒𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐨𝐜𝐜𝐮𝐫 𝐭𝐨𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫. 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐞𝐱𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞:⁣

Having another disorder is most common in children with depression: ⁣

About 3 in 4 children aged 3-17 years with depression also have anxiety (73.8%) and almost 1 in 2 have behavior problems (47.2%).⁣

For children aged 3-17 years with anxiety, more than 1 in 3 also have behavior problems (37.9%) and about 1 in 3 also have depression (32.3%).⁣

For children aged 3-17 years with behavior problems, more than 1 in 3 also have anxiety (36.6%) and about 1 in 5 also have depression (20.3%).⁣

If you think your child has signs and symptoms of depression speak to your pediatrician immediately.

I unintentionally had the best day 🥰 - all work was cancelled for me when our systems went down at 10am this morning —> So I came home from the office (obviously stopped at Whole Foods first) and was ALONE. All alone 👏🏻 in 👏🏻 my 👏🏻 house. Honestly, in the past four years, this has only happened a couple of times.
It’s actually a struggle for me to relax, to be by myself, to have nothing to do, because my brain is hardwired now to always be on the go constantly. I’m always doing ten things at once, so for my brain to do the opposite, it actually makes me ANXIOUS.
I’m trying to learn to be better at this and today was really good practice for me. 🙏🏻 It was exactly what I needed. A little break from reality. ☁️ And then after six hours of alone time you can only imagine how ready I was to scoop up my boyz. 💕

Today is a sad day. Today is the day I give up the word “f*ck”😢.
.
.
I told myself that as soon as either of my children started repeating my trashy mouth, that I’d have to make the sacrifice.
Welppppp today is that day, ladies and gentlemen! 😭and🤬

My sweet 3 year old was playing in the park’s sandbox and frustratedly asked another kid, “Why won’t you let me dig in your f*ck’n hole?!” This was followed with one or two gasps from the parents and children that were around.

Yep, that was the moment to change all other moments. That’s when I realized “f*ck” and other words alike can no longer be part of my vocabulary. Honestly, I’m super impressed that I’ve gotten away with it this long!😖 .
.
MY RELATIONSHIP WITH SWEARING:
it is the most feel good release... better than sex and sugar. It is the most satisfying way to emphasize a point or exclaim one’s excitement. My catch phrases all revolve around some sort of swear. One could say that part of my identity lies with having the mouth of a sailor. 😭😭😭 .
.
So tonight, I will have a funeral for all of my favorite words. I will write them down on pieces of paper and burn them.... or something equally dramatic. And pray that my son will not hereby be “that kid” on the playground. .
.
Farewell, “f*ck” “sh*t” and “b*tch”. Until we meet again.... maybe when he’s 18?🤷‍♀️

Do you secretly have HUGE plans for your future but keep telling yourself that “that life” wasn’t meant for you??⁣

Let me STOP you right there and tell you that you are in control of your future and if you have some big scary plans, you shout them out loud (even if its just to yourself in the bathroom mirror) and then put your head down and work HARD AS HELL FOR THEM!! ⁣

Do you constantly scroll social media admiring EVERYONE else? What they have, what they are doing, what they look like…..⁣

It’s ok, so did I. For waaaaaaay too long! ⁣

Then I took a step back and said “If they can do it, why can’t I?”⁣


I came up with some ridiculous reasons:⁣

I don’t look like them. ⁣

I am not as talented as them.⁣

My life is boring.⁣

BUT It wasn’t until I decided to start taking a look inside myself instead at everyone else did I realize that the very reasons you are not like them are the very reasons you CAN. ⁣

You want to change how you look and feel better about yourself. Start taking care of your body instead of feeling sorry for it. ⁣

You don’t have the talents that you think they do, what are you good at? Do those things.⁣

You think your life is boring, everyone thinks their life is boring. Do something that excites YOU!⁣

The best thing about coaching and being a Fit -Fluencer if you will, 😏 is that your job is to be exactly who you are. How beautiful is that. ✨⁣

I am an average military wife and a figuring it out as I go mom of 3 and counting that really LOVES to help others that want to work on being the best version of themselves. I am still learning every day and am a work in progress, I prefer to be positive and silly but tend to be overly sensitive. That. Is. Me. ⁣

Join me and feel comfortable to be exactly who you are even if you are still figuring that out! ⁣

Don’t for a second think you weren’t meant for a life you want. ⁣

Do you constantly scroll social media admiring EVERYONE else? What they have, what they are doing, what they look like…..⁣
⁣
It’s ok, so did I. For waaaaaaay too long! ⁣
⁣
Then I took a step back and said “If they can do it, why can’t I?”⁣
⁣
⁣
I came up with some ridiculous reasons:⁣
⁣
I don’t look like them. ⁣
⁣
I am not as talented as them.⁣
⁣
My life is boring.⁣
⁣
BUT It wasn’t until I decided to start taking a look inside myself instead at everyone else did I realize that the very reasons you are not like them are the very reasons you CAN. ⁣
⁣
You want to change how you look and feel better about yourself. Start taking care of your body instead of feeling sorry for it. ⁣
⁣
You don’t have the talents that you think they do, what are you good at? Do those things.⁣
⁣
You think your life is boring, everyone thinks their life is boring. Do something that excites YOU!⁣
⁣
The best thing about coaching and being a Fit -Fluencer if you will, 😏 is that your job is to be exactly who you are. How beautiful is that. ✨⁣
⁣
I am an average military wife and a figuring it out as I go mom of 3 and counting that really LOVES to help others that want to work on being the best version of themselves. I am still learning every day and am a work in progress, I prefer to be positive and silly but tend to be overly sensitive. That. Is. Me. ⁣
⁣
Join me and feel comfortable to be exactly who you are even if you are still figuring that out! ⁣
⁣
Don’t for a second think you weren’t meant for a life you want. ⁣
⁣

Ok, so Christina was a little freaked out and a lot unamused about our visit with Santa today 🤷‍♀️ ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I’m not going to lie...I was initially a little disappointed she wasn’t completely mesmerized by the magic of Santa and bursting with excitement to meet him...⠀⠀
⠀⠀
BUT, even though she wasn’t too sure about the whole experience, she didn’t scream and carry on...she simply turned to mommy and daddy for comfort ❤️⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I forever want to be the present mom my girls can turn to when they’re overwhelmed...to be that security for them when they’re freaked out or nervous. And today when Christina looked at me and said “momma” with those beautiful brown eyes and arms up...it shows me I must be doing something right to be that for them. And that’s worth all the Christmas spirit in the world to this momma ✨⠀⠀
⠀⠀
So instead of being disappointed that it wasn’t exactly how I pictured our first Santa visit as a family of 4, I’m sitting here feeling all the gratitude in the world tonight 🙏⠀⠀
⠀⠀
So, Merry Christmas from the Carters! And happy first Santa visit to our little miss Sophia! May all your holiday traditions be full of presence, love, and memories 🎄❤️⠀⠀ .
And remember, even if things don’t go fully according to plan...focus on the positives and find gratitude in the small things...they may just be the best things of all 😉

Are your littles excited about Santa this year?! Or a little freaked out like Christina?

Inhale... Exhale... Inhale... Exhale... Saat hamil ada masa-masa di mana ibu hamil merasakan sulit dan kurang tidur, mood swing, mudah lelah, tak napsu makan, dan masalah lainnya.

But I know I had the best day with you today -Taylor Swift 🎶 .

Be prepared for noncompliance; it comes with raising kids. Have your plan ready. What will you say next? Be careful not to repeat yourself 3 or more times because if you do, you’ll likely become angry. Instead, follow the Two-Times Rule as described in my book ““Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice.”

My babies aren’t babies anymore .... but I actually look like this every morning either because the kids who get up every day before 5am actually slept until 6am* or because my kids get up before 5am every day.

Is it just me or does anyone else fall a little bit more in love with their spouse when they catch them in moments like this? 😍
We’ve been missing Daddy so much lately 😭
But I have big dreams of retiring him someday soon 🤩

“I want!” ⠀

In our home, we call this the wanty feeling. ⠀

You know your child best, and you know your family values best so as always, it’s important to do what’s right for you, but below are some offerings.⠀

1. Call it out! This is called externalization, and it’s one of those parenting techniques that can be helpful for lots of things. This might sound like, “you are having the wanty feeling.”⠀

2. Acknowledge: “It is the best digger I’ve ever seen too, I get why you want it.”⠀

3. Kid Generated Plan: Encourage them to come up with a plan on what to do with the wanty feeling. If they are stumped, try only offering suggestions after asking, “Do you want to know what I do sometimes?” Plans in our home are often: think about the things I have at home, put it on a wish list (Christmas or Birthday), tell grandma about it, or spend a little time with it in the store and then say goodbye to it.⠀

4. Model: I will often say to my daughters, “uh-oh, I’m getting the wanty feeling (when I genuinely am!) any ideas about what I can do?” My eldest is always right there with ideas like breathing, or reminding myself I got something new recently. ⠀

I love hearing from you, what do you do when your child has the wanty feeling in a store?

Padahal papanya lagi selonjoran maanjaaahh di atas sofa yang dicariin malah mamanya yang baru aja merantau ke kamar mandi. Minta tolong sama papa dong nak, mama lagi mandi ini loh. Baru aja ngunci pintu udah pada teriak" kayak anak ayam yang dipisah sama induknya.. Papa pasti bisa kok nolongin kamu. Biarkan mamamu meditasi dan relaksasi untuk sejenak di kamar mandi ya~
