He looks so big, I just can’t take it!
We spent yesterday shopping and it was so refreshing. Judah had everyone laughing in target. He does this thing where he screeches like a dinosaur as loud as he possible can. 🦖 Of course, I think it’s the cutest thing ever, so I smile and laugh, which makes him giggle excessively and then screech even louder. It’s seriously the best. I love being a mom, but being a boy mom- man, it’s so fun. 🦕
Losers quit when they fail, winners fail until they succeed.
Type "Agree" if you believe this to be true!

Remember the bookshelf I told you about a few days ago? Here it is! I’m so glad I was able to unbox Judah’s books and toys. 🧡 I’m especially excited about this cute little elephant. His name is Tembo. Purchasing one supports organizations that care for abused, orphaned, and injured elephants. Judah snuggles Tembo like he’s his best friend. It melts my heart!

Passive-aggressive house-wife for the win!
Ba ha ha just kidding 😉 I don’t get asked this question much anymore, as I feel there is a lot more respect for stay-at-home moms and really just moms in general these days! Raising the next generation ain’t easy and us mamas deserve a lot more credit than we often receive, so, today I want to give a shout out to all you hard working ladies out there!
I know you are working hard day-in and day-out at those often unappreciated tasks, but I appreciate you! You work hard to love your kids, raise them right, and provide for them -you are AWESOME! And no mater if you stay at home full time or work outside the home, girl I know you are hustling all day every day, so don’t ever let anyone make you feel bad about your choices; you do you boo! Be proud of who you are and how much you accomplish everyday as a mama, truly the work you do is priceless.

Im a whole 7 months old today! I have such an amazingly cute little personality! Taking photo's on this cloth is becoming a challenge now cause i dont wanna lie still for long enough. I found my voice so Im really loud now and I learnt how to "fake cough" for attention. I rock back and forth on my hands and knees, so should start crawling pretty soon. As for clothes... well im still rocking my 0-3 months lol... moms tried a few 3-6 months on me, but it looks like Im drowning! I love eating my fresh fruit and veg... but still not too fond of my bottle... give me a cup or glass and i'll polish whatever is in it... EXCEPT my formula! Mom tried to trick me like that but Im too clever for her. I shut my lips and refuse! As for sleeping... you know how its been the last 7 months... still no change there, no way Im missing out on anything in life by sleeping! Ok..let me go play with my fur brothers...they so patient with me! .
Cold turkey or small steps? When you are making changes towards eating #healthier do you change everything at once or make one small step at a time? Have you tried all at once and failed? I have found that taking small steps over time are adding up in a huge way. Start with #exercise as it also helps with mental health. Then add extra water. Then change up the eating. If you try doing all that at once something is going to fall in the juggling. It's not going to happen over night and that's ok. Ive done workout programs and thrown in the towel at the end because I "should" have lost more weight, fit a smaller size what ever that marker is for you. Completely ignoring the fact that there was progress it just wasn't fast enough for what I was expecting. And that was the problem expecting too much to fast. It's the little things that add up. #Dontquit . Keep adding up all those small #victories and change 1 thing at a time. #sahm#momsohard#stayathomemom#momlife#enjoyyourlife#thesuccesslegacy#doitforyou#doitforthem#sahmlife#progress#healthymom#healthyliving#slowprogress#keepfighting#onethingatatime

Jadi ceritanya Emak Affan saat ini lagi nge-toilet training Affan, kurang lebih seminggu. Trus baru merasa... Kok susah banget yaaa melatih anak buang air di kamar mandi. Hiks, melow lah emak trus curhat ke teman-teman terdekat 😭
Tapi dari sini menyadari, masyaAllah ternyata jadi ibu itu tantangannya luar biasa meningkat terus ya! Kemarin rasanya baru aja nyapih Affan, sekarang harus nge-toilet training. Level kehidupannya tuh kayak dengan cepat meningkat, dari yang awalnya "berstatus" ibu hamil, pasca melahirkan langsung jadi ibu menyusui, ntar anak gede jadi ibu dengan toddler alias balita, trus lanjut lagi dengan anak sekolah, belum lagi kalau pada akhirnya nambah jadi 2 anak, 3 anak, dan seterusnya. Hwaaaa masyaAllah kalau dibayangin perjuangannya kayak yang ribet sendiri.
Meski pada kenyataannya, kalau saya perhatikan ibu dengan anak lebih dari satu juga bisa menjalankannya kok, meski gak mudah. Dan mereka juga sama, seperti kita, merasakan up & down-nya ngurus anak. Gak selamanya mudah dan bahagia terus.
Lebih lanjut lagi saya jadi menyadari.. MasyaAllah, karunia menjadi ibu itu luar biasa. Terlepas ia pada akhirnya "hanya" menjadi ibu rumah tangga atau bekerja. Tapi satu yang pasti.. Bahwa pekerjaan menjadi ibu itu gak bisa dipandang sebelah mata. Tugasnya gak mudah, tanggung jawabnya untuk mendidik seorang anak manusia itu besar.
Jadi jangan lagi merasa sedih ya, Mak! (Menyemangati diri sendiri wkwk). Masa-masa sulit pasti akan ada, tapi nanti pun akan ada masa mudah. Kalau ibu lain bisa melaluinya, kenapa kita enggak?
Teruntuk emak yang sedang berjuang, you're not alone. Saya dan emak-emak lain pun sedang berjuang. Mari kita bersemangat bersama! ❤
I planned to post about our latest rotation over a week ago... but life happened so 🤷🏻♀️ but if you saw my stories then, you will have seen Harry’s latest craze - ROTATION! Observing and exploring anything that turns, spins or rolls, has been a massive hit so I put a few things together to meet these urges as well as other things he is just really enjoying!
It’s not a pretty, insta worthy shelfie, but it’s what is working for us and keeping my munchkin happy and occupied, so it gives me all the 😍😍 just the same! On top I have pulled our $1 cupcake tier back out and topped in with some Pom Pom ‘cupcakes’ - perfect for spinning and flinging! As well as a cog turning plastic monstrosity that we borrowed from the toy library - this is something I would never purchase as it has such limited uses and therefore becomes boring very quickly! But for the short term, while Harry explores this schema, it is perfect! 🙌🏼
Underneath we have some music makers, a DIY bobbin roll, our ‘Poppin Poster’ (see a couple of posts back) and a stacker with some Grapat rings - Harry’s fine motor skills have improved out of sight and he is now enjoying this type of threading and posting, which would have just been frustrating for him a few weeks ago.
I’ll share a few other things that have helped with our rotation fascination, tomorrow!
Also, I the interest of keeping it real, I added a pic of what the Playspace looked like before I did a quick tidy to take a pic. TBH that’s what my house looks like 90% of the time 😅 but instead of calling it laziness, I call it quality play together 🙌🏼 Notice the laundry is there too, so I can get at least one job done during those classic afternoon-itis hours 😂

When daddy’s away, the girls will...go to Dunkin’ Donuts. Clearly. I mean...I need out. 🤪
The Shox played their first game of the NIT in South Carolina over the weekend, so we sure did get out in that beautiful sunshine and eat all the calories.
And don’t mind Miss Georgia Ruth who can not be bothered by the peasant task of picking up her own water cup.
It’s not what size of clothing you are
It’s not the number on the scale
It’s not what others think of you
It’s comes from within! It’s learning about embracing your freaken journey and unleashing that beauty to the world!
It comes from happiness
It comes from confidence
It comes from self love
It comes from self worth
It comes from self care
For a very long time the number on the scale would define me. The size of clothing would freaken stress me out and make me so depressed.
Don’t let the number on the scale DEFINE YOU! Don’t let sizing of clothing stress you out or make you depressed strut yo self girl! Go by how you fell, the pictures you take, how your clothes fit or the inches you are losing!
So beautiful babes don’t be so hard on yourself! TRUST THE JOURNEY! Look in the mirror and strut yo’ gorgeous self! OWN YOUR SHIT because we all are beautiful just the way we are.

We have been playing ‘cafe’ a bit recently. Following our #lessismore we do not have one of those wooden toy kitchens, instead a couple of wooden food sets and lots of random containers that are having a #secondlife as toys. It hasn’t held us back so far & I have had many meals made for me at the ‘cafe’. Today our play has extended to our Duplo food and we have created a mini cafe... complete with carrots and pumpkins and market stall (imagination is great 🤣) hope you are having fun whatever you are playing today! #legoduplo#stayathomemom#mumlife#preschool#learningthroughplay#playingcafe#playingkitchen
This little guy is ready for his little brother to get here! He has the kindest soul and LOVES playing with other kids! I am so excited to see how he interacts with the newest edition to the family...what changes did you see when it came time to add another child to your family dynamic? .
I had to go to Hobby Lobby today for some fabric and of course the planner isle was calling my name from the other end of the store. It's a good thing my @hobbylobby is NEVER stocked. That makes it much easier to avoid spending money I don't have on things I don't need 😂
This is how we’ve spent the last 2 days... my girl isn’t a big snuggler so I take what I can get! I hate seeing her sick and not her best, and to be honest it’s been an off week for us here.
Potty training is in the books, girl is rockin’ it and I couldn’t be more proud of her. Still haven’t left the house much, and now she’s got a bug so between all of that, it’s been very little normalcy, and I’m a creature of habit.
So all that said, I’m still doing my best to show up for myself with my workouts, mostly late night because I’m showing up for her all day the best I can.
Most of all, God’s been showing up enough for the both of us, because we need it daily! So if you’re having a week anything like ours, know you don’t have to do it alone. Thank goodness His mercies are new every morning!🙌🏼

This one is for someone super special to me, my Momma. She was diagnosed with a paraganglioma brain tumor at the beginning of January.
The black and white beads represent the zebra ribbon for rare diseases. The zebra is the official symbol of rare diseases in the United States and is noted for its black and white stripes, which are central to its uniqueness. Everyone has his/her own stripes, those characteristics that make each individual distinct. While each of the more than 7,000 rare diseases are unique, there are many commonalities that unite the rare disease community.
The Gray beads represent the ribbon for brain tumor patients & the 6 clear beads are for the 6 weeks she had of radiation. .
Those 6 weeks were far from clear and had her in a bit of a fog from exhaustion. Her journey is far from over as we are now in the dreaded wait for new scans to see if the tumor has stopped growing or not.
Dont take life for granted. This has been a scary, crazy journey and I'm so glad we've gotten to do it together. I'd be lost with out you Mom.

I’m not sure who started this trend, but I’ve been seeing so many post about how long people have been on their #dfc today. I think it’s so cute and want to join in :) I’m already on day 202, and I have to say it feels like less. :
What a blessed day...
I had a yummy breakfast with my family this morning, swimming with my lil nieces and nephew,sweet kisses from baby daddy,lotsa hugs and love from my boys, beautiful messages from friends and family
For dinner my boys took me to @rocomamas . Such a cool vibe so much fun placing our orders then boom load shedding, which meant no fries or wings...baby daddy was fuming coz he just wanted fries with this meal so bad and for a sec there I almost acted like a spoilt child but just as I was about to chuck my toys out of the cot,God spoke to me and said "baby girl you wanna carry on about fries and Eskom while that guy outside will do anything for just the burger in a dark alley way. Boys also craved for that fries but we all realised how blessed we are despite the loadshedding and meals without fries. You rock if you've taken time to read this very long caption🙈
