Celebrating my girls on #nationaldaughtersday๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ

Thereโ€™s something special about raising girls! Itโ€™s like getting a second chance in life to do things right. Youโ€™ve been where they are and will do everything to guide them right so they donโ€™t repeat your mistakes or struggles.

My house may be full of bows, barbies, baby dolls, princess dresses and toy kitchens but my heart is fuller..full of joy to be honoured with this beautiful role. To raise and guide these little angels and watch them blossom into strong women tomorrow.

Brave girls who would know their worth (far more precious than rubies), set the bar high and achieve whatever they set their mind to do! Who wonโ€™t be forced to fit into the status quo or to settle for less but confident enough to share their talents with the world.

Queens who will shatter glass ceilings and not merely try to fit in glass shoes ๐Ÿ‘  ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ.

Tag a girl mama to remind her to celebrate her daughter today.๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง

When I asked my son if M was for Moo or Mama .his answer actually surprised me..M is for Mama...

This summer is one for the books, we had so much fun and made beautiful memories! It definitely paid for all that 2020 stole from us.

But itโ€™s back to school we go! ๐ŸŽ

Goodbye to lazy mornings, late wake-ups and unlimited screen time,snacking at odd times and back to early wake ups, school bus pickups, homework, and lunch packingโ€ฆ

Praying for Gods protection as our kids head back to school. He will lead and guide their every step.Amen ๐Ÿ™

Mamasโ€ฆ go preorder this book! Set you Mama Bear skills high for Christ and your childrenโ€ฆ.

Currently residing where thereโ€™s peace, serenity and tranquility with the beautiful crystal blue waters and magnificent jagged snow-dusted mountains of Moraine lake as my backdrop. โ›ฐ ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Am putting aside my โ€œmama superhero capeโ€ to take a break to clear my mind of anything thatโ€™s tugging for attention. Squashing my worries, acknowledging the simple things, taking a moment to breathe, and surrounding myself with things that bring me joy.

Fun fact: Glacier fed waters of Moraine lake and Lake Louise remain cold at a temp of 4C all year round and their turquoise blue colours are caused by refraction of light off the sediments and rock flour deposited in them. Itโ€™s image is printed on the back of Canadian $20 ๐Ÿ’ต issued in 1969 & 1979 and itโ€™s the most photographed spot in the Canadian Rockies.

Oh, and my top matched the color of the lake and this might just be my favourite pose ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Hey Mama,hereโ€™s your reminder that youโ€™re the BEST mom and the exact parent your child needs โ€˜cos sometimes we just need to hear it. We Are always quick to affirm and praise our kids when they accomplish something new or meet a milestone, but give less credit to ourselves.
Making a conscious effort to practice positive affirmations makes me feel good and starts off the day on a right foot.

In the eyes of our kids we are superheroes and we mean the world to themโ€ฆ.They probably donโ€™t notice our shortcomings, the mom guilt we carry nor our second guessing. The clutter, the unfolded laundry or the sink full of dishes,or that youโ€™re a pound heavier or without makeup๐Ÿ˜ฉ

What they will remember is the smiles, happiness, comfort, teachings, stories and memories shared, the safe place of succour and the judgement free zone we made of our homes.

How we keep showing up, being present and intentional despite how tough some days can be. We are giving them the awesome childhood they deserve and that Mamaโ€ฆ..is ENOUGH! ๐Ÿฅบ

When they look they see a mother whose love knows no bounds, who will do anything to keep them safe and protected. They are our devotion and commitment.

So am going to say it one more time, youโ€™re doing your absolute best mama.. and I know without a doubt in my mind that youโ€™re the perfect mom for the job because God made it so ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Letโ€™s start this week a positive note! Shall we? ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜‡

Parenting can be challenging with a whole lot of responsibilities! Mothers are expected to raise responsible and emotionally stable kids, make home cooked meals, keep their houses neat, juggle work , keep up with trends, exercise to maintain a tip top shape and drink 6-8 glasses of water a day! ๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ

Mothers, What canโ€™t we do?๐Ÿฅฒ๐Ÿ˜…

In all these, I cling to God and trust heโ€™s equipped me ( and you) for this journey while I continually push myself to be better everyday.

Matching with my bestie boy โ˜บ๏ธ

Little story on how we chose his name - Weโ€™ve had the name Huett picked out for a long time.

We loved it the first time we heard it and knew it would be the name we used if we ever had a son! His middle name, Jesse, is a name thatโ€™s in both of our families. It honors Tristanโ€™s late cousin Jesse who was like a brother to him growing up and it was also my great grandfathers name. The name Jesse also means โ€œgiftโ€ and oh what a gift our sweet boy is ๐Ÿ’› #misformama #hisforhuett #threeweeksold

Am just over here with my tween who will soon be taller then me, wondering if am just short or sheโ€™s growing taller by the day ๐Ÿ˜‚
It was just yesterday I brought her home from the hospital ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿฅบ( At least, feels like it)

Children do not only gain height and size, they pick up our energy and copy what we say and do. During their pretend play with dolls and they use my lines as โ€œmomโ€, I get to see if my character is more like Disney Mary poppins or Cruella ๐Ÿคฃ

Kids are like sponges, they soak up whatever is around them. They are ever watching our actions, words and choices. Weโ€™ve got influence, to guide them by passing to them the knowledge and wisdom weโ€™ve acquired through the years and most importantly, to impress Godโ€™s word upon their heart to be able to stand against the pressures of the world.

Any other mama struggle with how fast kids grow?
One minute we want them to grow and ease up the responsibilities ๐Ÿ˜ฉand the next we want them to be little and cuddly? ๐Ÿฅบ

This mamaโ€™s heart canโ€™t keep up๐Ÿฅฒ๐Ÿ˜…

Best mom present ever! I got for a friend having a baby and when I actually got it, it made me tear up!

Real life talk:
I may opt to watch cocomelon instead of my shows,
May have to share my food or eat it later when itโ€™s cold,
May have dark circles from interrupted sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด
May be 2 Jean sizes up๐Ÿ‘–

My house may never be spotless, with my walls a perfect art canvas for my toddler,
My heart will race when I hear a thud or panic when thereโ€™s utter silence...because silence is never golden when you have kids ๐Ÿ˜…
Interest in myself may seem to fade away and my days may revolve around them but I found who I was meant to be!

Motherhood changes you for the better, it highlights your weak spots that needs work and smoothens the rough edges. It makes you more compassionate, selfless, patient, stronger, and understanding! This whole journey makes us strive to do our best and be good role models.

I am growing as I train my children and itโ€™s made me evolve into a better newer version of me.. I wouldnโ€™t want my old me back ( maybe the size ๐Ÿ˜…)

How about you Mama? What do you love about the new you?

When your confidence is on ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Girl mom... My favorite title. I really wanted a boy the 2nd time around, but as always God knows best.

I love being a girl mom I was made for it!

I was smart and took a picture within 20 minutes of them being dressed. Smartest decision of the day! ๐Ÿคฃ

M is for the moment of joy when you behold the face of your baby for the first time, the happiness that grips your heart when they meet their milestone.

M is for still showing up especially on the tough days when youโ€™re exhausted and overwhelmed.

M is for the wrinkles, the dark circles, and the grey hair ( donโ€™t tell me itโ€™s genetics, itโ€™s the kids! I have proof !๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคช)

M is for how far you will go to prevent them from getting hurt.

M is for the months you abstain from wine, sushi...just to have a safe pregnancy. The constant heartburn, morning sickness, stretch marks, sciatica and back pains๐Ÿ˜ฉ

M is for the moments your toddlers proceed to do exactly the word that comes after โ€œDonโ€™tโ€! The times all your buttons are pushed stripping you of your energy and (sometimes sanity) yet refines, sanctifies and blesses you in the best way possible.

M is for going through excruciating labor pains yet forgetting it the split second you see your baby ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿฝ

M is for the moment you accept to lower your expectations, remove โ€œperfectionismโ€ from your dictionary to accommodate the messy moments that comes with the job.

M is for realizing that โ€œSilence is not goldenโ€ anymore! your heart panicking when you hear a โ€œthudโ€ and holding your breath when they jump from one furniture to the other.

M is for the sleepless nights and staying awake when your child is sick.

M is for the times you pray your child sleeps through the night and yet wake up in terror the first time they do wondering if theyโ€™re still alive ๐Ÿ˜‚

M is for desperately needing a break form the kids and end up missing them when they leave!

M is for watching Cocomelon and Baby shark on repeat.

M is for the endless worries, mom brain, cooking, kissing owies, showing up for kids dance practices, the never ending to-do list, perpetual request for snacks and being called โ€œmamaโ€ ๐Ÿ’ฏX a day !

M is for the moments you stare at them with intense love and realize that no matter how tough this whole motherhood journey can be, itโ€™s worth it and you will do it all over again!

Happy Motherโ€™s Day Mama!
You deserve all the admiration and appreciation ๐Ÿ’
