I could post this picture to speak to my own pride and make it look like my kid loves his broccoli.
But he doesn't.
He loves his ranch dressing. The broccoli was just a good spoon.
The fact that he is even willing to pick up broccoli and put it in his mouth is enough for me. Sure, as a dietitian, I would love to say that my kid loves his vegetables. Truth is, he doesn't, and that's ok. More than my job title, my personal experiences have taught me that his relationship with food matters more anyway. And right now, that means having fun at mealtime, trying new foods, working on his fine motor skills, and experimenting - like combining really gross foods for dipping (kiwi in ketchup anyone? 🤢😆).
What interesting food combinations have your kids come up with?

• B O N D • Although Little Fox can be rough and is ultimately still getting used to having his baby sister around their is no denying he loves her. He may have dropped a transformer on her head or cuddled her a little too fiercely from time to time but he means well. I hope they make amazing memories together alongside the inevitable sibling fights that I'm sure will come 😂
In need of a little #throwback today as I’m missing this little bean and a good opportunity to say a BIG hello (and thank you!) to some lovely new followers. This is me, Carley the one behind @sisiandseb with my little inspiration Sisi 💗
This snap was taken before I started the company and I have to pinch myself with how far we have come since ✨
I’m also craving sunshine and summer dresses like there’s no tomorrow. We have some beautiful pieces in for this summer 🌿 #thatposethough#shegotitfromhermama
If I could give my daughter three things in life, it would be the confidence to always know her self worth, the strength to chase her dreams and the ability to know how truly, deeply loved she is. 💕
Happy 4th Birthday sweet little girl. I loved being a mermaid with you today. 🧜🏻♀️✨
💙 6 WEEKS OLD 💙 At this time 6 weeks ago I had held Arlo for 4 hours just staring at him discovering him. I immediately became addicted to his smell and his soft silky little head, I still constantly gently rub my nose and face across it. His little newborn squeaks, grunts and purrs are like heaven to my ears, the panting for milk and trying to latch on to everything in sight immediately make me melt. I giggle at his startle reflex when both little arms and hands reach out because he jumps from a noise or unexpected touch. I love cuddling him before a bath because I can feel my hands on his squishy skin that feels like a soft furry peach. I love staring at him after a feed when he is milk drunk, he does little smiles and his eyes flicker as he goes in and out of sleepiness. I love his slow blinking as his eyes adjust to the big wide world. Each day I remind myself that all these beautiful little newborn things will soon come to an end as he grows so I want to soak them up in detail. This stage is so fleeting, I want to take photos of his tiny fingers wrapped around my thumb, because one day is hand will wrap around mine, I want to kiss his little lips because one day he will be a man, to cool to do that. One day my little Arlo will be a strong, young gentleman and I’ll look at this photo where he was as tiny as bunny and a stem of hydrangeas, remembering the smells, remembering the softness and remembering the noises that stole my heart from the second he was born. Arlo you have my heart forever. 💙 #newbornbliss
Se nos dio por el art attack! Hace un tiempito recordé gracias a instagram esta técnica y pensé que sería genial ponerla en práctica. La verdad es que normalmente soy partícipe de que la propuesta nazca de los chicos para que puedan expresarse con libertad, pero también está bueno estimular un poco su creatividad y darles un punto de partida innovador. De paso, aprenden cosas nuevas.
La hoja la preparé con tiras de cinta de pintor. Luego la gorda pintó con témperas y, una vez seco, sacamos las cintas. Tip: Les recomiendo que antes de ponerlas sobre la hoja las peguen y despegue un par de veces sobre una superficie limpia para facilitar el último paso.
En la última foto van a ver que hay un segundo modelo en acción. Lo que pasó fue que cuando la gorda me vio preparando la actividad en seguida me robó la cinta e hizo su propia versión. ¡Ama pegarla por todos lados! Temo despertarme un día y tener la casa empapelada 😱
• HAPPY SOUL •
This one really is just the most kind and calm soul. This morning his dad took him to school so I could have a lie in with Freya (well I say lie in see stories!) He came in and gave me a cuddle, said he hoped I had a lovely day and he would see me after school. He just radiates kindness, much like his Dad. So proud of him! It’s cool to be kind don’t forget!
As a mother I go to bed every night promising myself that I will do better. Most days I stumble, some days I am down right ashamed of my behaviour. I wish I was perfect for you, but I am human and sometimes I will fail. But I promise to never give up. .
Tell me I’m not the only one struggling this week 🙈 is there some sort of super moon or something making my children crazy 😂🙈
Afternoon hangs on our gorgeous rug from @summerandkisses with my little tribe 🌼 loving this comfy dress from @adriftclothing and the girls rocking their @miannandco and @sweet_as_april bonnet 🙊💓💓
Would you believe Aleeia actually took this pic 🙊
Seriously, who needs all those other tropical paradise islands when we have this beauty right here in Abu Dhabi? I’m not a beach person but I may well have fallen in love with this beautiful little island... 🌴
‘We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it’. John Lennon ✨
Share a little kindness and love today 🖤
Вчера общалась с девочками на тему «Инстаграм уже не тот». Да, уже нет той атмосферы, когда чуть ли не все друг друга знают и желают доброе утро под ежедневными фото с завтраком. Раньше достаточно было сделать правильную красивую раскладку и ты уже гуру Инстаграм :)
Сейчас же стало много коммерции, нет такой душевности, но зато сколько невероятно полезных постов и идей для фото появилось! Здесь можно купить одежду, мебель, игрушки, получить консультацию стилиста, психолога или рекомендации по гв. Чего только нет 🙈 Несколько своих путешествий я спланировала, опираясь в основном на публикации из Инстаграм ✈️
Все меняется, и эта сеть в том числе. В лучшую сторону или нет, каждый решает для себя сам :)
А для вас раньше было лучше в Инстаграм или сейчас? 😊
I got back yesterday from the Clickaway conference in Florida. I had such an amazing time but I think it will take me a week to recover from a night of just a couple of hours sleep on the flight home. I need my sleep to function properly! 😴I’m not complaining though, the sleep deprivation and mossie bites were well worth it! ☺️I have so many photos from the shoots that I’m looking forward to editing and then sharing with you very soon! #vickiknightsphotography
Probably going to get judged up a storm for this but it was too funny not to share...
Last night I said "Arlo go clean your room" & quick as anything he replied "go clean your ass" 😱😂 I honestly don't even know where he gets this stuff half the time but he's not slow! Tell me I'm not the only one who's kids say stuff like this? 🙈
