Our Meyer lemon tree has started to flower. Hopefully we get our first yield soon 🤞 I can‘t wait to see the look of excitement on my little lemon lover‘s face when he sees the first fruit pop up. We have recently started a veggie patch and hope to get our boy involved in tending to these plants. I believe its so important to start them young, to show them where their food comes from and the level of care that is required to help these plants grow. Hopefully in time, he will learn to appreciate the food that is placed in front of him and not to waste it. Luckily for now, we have a dog to clean up his food waste! #mumofboys #plants #veggiepatch #childhoodunplugged #backyardplay #gardening #motherhoodunplugged #mummyblogger #lemontree #meyerlemontree #lemonflowers #toddlerlife #foodwaste #teachingkids #authenticlearning #childgardeners #greenthumb #mumlife #eco #pesticidefree #growingthings #ourbackyard #outdoors

The friendship between children and horses is the sweetest. Turns out, equestrian pursuits are the perfect activity with natural social distancing. Our watch is the perfect equestrian mobile device, it stays attached during all that horse play. . This summer we’ve all adjusted our lives, which also means we’ve slowed down to smell the roses so to speak. If you asked your child, what would they say is a positive outcome of Covid? What has changed for the better for them? . . . . .

Last night we surprised the boys by taking them up to Los Angeles national crest to watch the meteor shower and catch some shooting stars. While the boys were a little loopy bc it was so late, it was 100% worth it. We laughed, sang twinkle twinkle little star and star light star bright. Christian at one point said “I think my neck is going to stretch off“! 🤪It was the first time I had ever seen shooting stars and it was beautiful! _ Today we were invited by some friends to hang with them by the beach, and we got to see one of the most beautiful sunsets in quite some time. Plus it was the first time the boys actually stood still to see the sun go off over the horizon ! _ Two equally beautiful and magical experiences! _ A great reminder that just because life is upside down right, doesn’t mean we can’t make beautiful memories with our family. Friends don’t let what’s going on in the world rob you of your joy. Things might feel heavy at times and rightly so, but if we just stop and look up, we are reminded that the same God who created shooting stars and beautiful sunsets, is the same God who has us in the palm of His hand. Don’t put your hope in this world that’s passing, but on the Jesus who is everlasting✨ #grateful

Iso chronicles episode 1836485 : “will this ever actually end?” 4 mystery cases in NZ just as I was getting jealous and seriously considering moving there. Fml. I’m sad for all the things the kids are missing or may miss in the future (first year of school next year 🤷🏼‍♀️ ). Trying to find the joy, trying to love the slow days, trying not to hate it. Trying not to feel guilty about potentially breaking the rules when taking the kids to the local dirt pile to play each day. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #stage4chronicles . Ps I’m fine. I was actually just looking at my shoe but it fit the caption perfectly so I rolled with it.

Do you ever find yourself scouring the internet, searching for ways to fill an afternoon?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did any of it work? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Google 'activities for toddlers' and here's what you'll get:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mix flour and water⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Make sensory jelly⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Add water to paper to squish⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Play with bubbles⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Make soapy jars⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You spend hours finding the resources, buying just the right-sized tray from IKEA, making it look beautiful and then presenting it to your toddler. Cue squeals of delight, two minutes of frenzied activity and then silence as your child wanders off in search of something new. You're left with a big mess to clear up.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to be clear. There's nothing wrong with soapy jars or sensory jelly. It's just that it wasn't your child's idea. And that means they might not be that interested in it. Far better to offer an interesting environment and let them explore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here's the 100 Toys version: just open the back door.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let your child go outside. If they're interested in exploring squelchy materials, they'll find some water (or ask you for it ) and mix it into the nearest available patch of earth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This summer, give your children the gift of boredom. Leave them alone to work things out for themselves. If you don't have a garden, visit your local park or woods. Find a nice spot and just sit there. Bring a picnic. There's a whole universe in a few feet of earth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alexis : ) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S thank you to @lucylevene for this lovely image.

Dice que fue “el mejor cumpleaños de su vida” y lo logramos #sinbasura , una piñata con dulces a #granel envueltos en tela, un rally de #harrypotter , un juego de #quidditch con los primos, y un pastel delicioso. Los niños no piden más, muchas veces somos los adultos los que les vamos metiendo ideas de lo que “necesitan”, pero en cuanto te das cuenta puedes regresar a lo básico. Fue un gran día ☺️ #childhoodmemories #childhoodunplugged #lowwaste #lowwasteparty #lowwastefamily #rally

Magnet Tile Fun! 🧲 This week has been especially draining, E is going through a clingy phase, is constantly on-the-go, and is starting to develop a bit of that toddler-tude. Ive stuck to my commitment of no screen time so far, but sometimes mama needs a break, am I right? We tried this on a desperate whim and E was totally engaged! 🙌 🤸‍♀️ I've seen this activity floating around instagram for a while, sorry no one specific to credit 🙄 This has been a lifesaver for my sanity and is the only thing that keeps her occupied for longer periods. E stays interested because it incorporates fine motor skills to remove the magnets while allowing her to employ larger gross motor movements as she pulls up, squats down and maneuvers all over the step. Being able to reach through the gate was an added point of interest. E also enjoys herself more when activities can be done vertically. 🌈 I have a feeling that it's appeal may be starting to fade, but it was nice while it lasted. 💫 #montessoriathome #montessorimom #montessorikids #easypeasyplay #toddleractivities #learningthroughplay #childhoodunplugged #toddlerlife #finemotor #grossmotor #teachermom #letthembelittle

Love getting some fresh air and having a healthy snack with my little love! Early mornings are the best. The weather here in California has been quite warm but in the early mornings and late evenings, it feels amazing! I’ve been loving these @lesserevilsnacks popcorn. It’s made with pink Himalayan salt and coconut oil (my favorite! ) They were kind enough to send over a big case so we will be sharing with our amazing nurses! Where is everyone else from? It’ll be fun to hear! 🌍 💕 #lesserevil #gifted #snacktime #littlepiecesofchildhood #watchthemgrow #mytinytribe #toddlerhood #theheartcaptured #writeyouonmyheart #motherhood #childhoodunplugged #pixel_kids #instakid #littleandbrave #childrenofig #babiesofig #stunningbabies #candidchildhood #letthembelittle #kidsforreal #darlingmovement #minime #mytinytribe #mommyandme #childhoodeveryday #runwildmychild #wildandfreechildren #alldaykids #petitejoys #collab #collaboration

Last night, I shared a special moment between Ezzie and I on my IG story. I captured him telling me that he loved me back for the first time. This has always been something that I looked forward to as a mother, but I realized that it wouldn’t come as soon as I expected. This is because my 3 year old son is speech and developmentally delayed.⠀ ⠀ A year ago, Ezzie was evaluated for early childhood intervention because he was blooming later than the “expected” milestones. At the age of 2, he wasn’t making eye contact. He wasn’t communicating his needs. He had sensory issues and would even hurt himself when overwhelmed. He also didn’t have any words in his vocabulary— not even mama or papa.⠀ ⠀ I started to doubt my parenting skills. Sure, I’m a youth arts educator by trade, but does that mean I’m qualified to raise a child? I began to compare my parenting to others. But then I realized that I wasn’t just comparing myself— I was unconsciously comparing my child to other children. How harmful! I had become so obsessed with this idea of “catching up” to everyone else that I never took the time to enjoy where we were at.⠀ ⠀ So I changed my mindset. I started to trust myself and make decisions based on what was right for MY family. Then one day, I realized that we were at a completely different place than we once were. We had made so much progress. We were growing and having fun.⠀ ⠀ With the support of EI, we learned to embrace what makes our family different. But it turns out that we aren’t the only ones. Other parents reached out to me and shared that their families have similar stories.⠀ ⠀ I’ve felt alone for years because I didn’t feel confident in my own parenting. Because my experience wasn’t like everyone else’s cookie cutter story. It’s always been challenging, exhausting, and emotional for me. But I’m glad I kept pushing myself to do better. Not necessarily to get better at parenting, but to accept that I am the best parent for my child.⠀ ⠀ We are starting to work on piecing together two word phrases. He still can’t say mama, but he can tell me that he loves me, because he was led by love, and that is exactly the legacy I want to leave behind. ❣️
