Snow days call for baking and preparing a good meal. 🥘 Cooking with Dawson has been something I’ve done since he was old enough to stir. He is becoming quite the good helper and did a great job making some oatmeal and pumpkin cookies. I made salmon and roasted veggies for dinner and he ate it. Here’s the thing tho-he didn’t have another choice. I made it with seasoning that wasn’t super strong, he’s had salmon since he was under 2 and he likes it. He tried to get out of eating it but we knew it was fine. In our house there aren’t 2 meals made, there won’t be unless I’m making something “exotic” and even then he has to take 1 bite. Maybe we will have the food battle with C but I’m not willing to constantly feed my kids chicken nuggets and pizza while making another meal for my hubby and I. (1. I would eat the leftovers from their plate and 2. Ain’t nobody got time for that.🤪) Some nights we eat 🍕, but my kids will be raised to try new foods and help in the kitchen. The thing is..when they’re involved, they tend to want to eat the food they have helped prepare. If you’re struggling, try getting the kids in the kitchen with you. (*Not pretending to know it all this is just one area that has been a success for us and maybe it can help someone else out.) Disclaimer: it will be messy but it will also be a lot of fun!!! 😋 #embracethemess#makingmemories#goodhabitsstartyoung
The last few days have been hard for a number of my young habits, just because i lacked the motivation to do them XD
The first one, as you can see, is reading and I have to admit, that i spend two entire days without opening this book once, despite the fact, that copywriting is getting more and more important every single day because of new cool stuff in the business.
The second and third are intertwined and also didn't do so well in the last couple of days 😅 going to sleep early ( midnight, early for me) and posting at least an hour before going to bed, which is of cause also not the case today, because i'm lying in bed at 2:45 doing my post... So yeah, not exactly the way I want it to be. But at least i've been quite productive today, thats at least something positiv. Did i tell you already that i bought two new shares? Wirecard is the name and my depot value has almost reached 4k 😍 without the P2P Investments
Brushing is a skill. And like many skills, it take time to learn and lots of practice to master it! Kiddos under the age of 9 usually do not have the manual dexterity to brush or floss properly. That is why it is so important for parents to be involved in their home care routine.
If your children want to do it by themselves, let them! It's a great way for them to practice but ALWAYS make sure that you brush their teeth before or after they have done it themselves!

We had bébé E’s 9 month checkup yesterday and all is well! She is in the 92% for height and head circumference — and 98% for weight ☺️ healthy baby.
They asked if she was eating solids — I told them yes (thinking they’d ask me what exactly had been introduced) — but they never asked — the nurse or doctor.
And what a good opportunity for them, I thought, to do some teaching about good nutrition for infants and babies! (And maybe even what NOT to feed them!) I mean, they’re little people — and the good habits we start them with now will help cultivate good habits as older children —> adults #startthemyoung
They need REAL, WHOLE foods. Not the processed, fast-food crap posing as food
Babies, at about 6 months, can eat what we eat (if it’s soft enough/puréed) — personally, I’ve been helping by chewing (foods that are too fibrous, like broccoli) for her and once it’s mushy enough, letting her eat it — yes, baby bird I know — but she likes it! And she gets to experience the flavors of good, whole foods.
That being said, it should make meal planning and prepping easier! Your kids can eat what you eat (mind the extra spicy seasonings — add them to you plate before you eat, instead of the entire dish).
I want bébé E to be old enough to understand that breads/pastas, pre-packaged meals/sugary cereals, and fast foods are only eaten on special occasion and not part of our everyday diet (before she is introduced to them). And, if I’m lucky, she won’t enjoy the way she feels after eating much of it (maybe groggy or sluggish) and won’t want to eat it often. (This is me talking now — we’ll see how it goes, but I’m optimistic!)
It takes some planning and prepping to be efficient, but it’s worth it! Our kids are WORTH it. And so are we.
For the first time in my life I LOVE natural. I wake up and have no shame in dropping my kid off at school or going grocery shopping without make up. In all my 32 years this has never happened and it’s sparked confidence in me that is life changing. I don’t have to buy make up to cover up blemishes or hide my true self. Now I buy make up because it’s FUN and I love playing with colors! Now I can focus on life....and prepping my skin for my older years. But growing old can be easier if we start taking care of ourselves now. I love my products and I love my skin. I wish this upon everyone❤️💋 #beautycounter#nofilterneeded#nomakeup#beautyiswellness#beautyiswithin#goodhabitsstartyoung#dailyregimenswork#betterbeautymovement#youarebeautiful
