🕵🏻‍♂️SECRET ABCs🕵🏻‍♂️ Here’s the thing about this activity – it basically has no age limit 🙌🏻 Once they can handle water color paints (which is different for each kid), you’ve got to try this 🎉 It’s a total Beauty and the Beast (“Tale as Old as Time”) technique and it’s not going away any time soon because it’s awesome 😂 Take a white piece of paper and draw on it using white crayon 🖍 For little littles, you could draw a picture, or shapes; then graduate to letters… sight words… secret messages 🙌🏻 I’m telling you this activity is AGELESS 💕 Once you’ve written your secret letters or what nots (and make sure to press hard with that white crayon), give your child the seemingly blank piece of paper to watercolor on 🎉 This is some serious magic here ✨ Back when Sam was age 2-3, he HATED painting 🤷🏻‍♀️ He was so anti- art 🤦🏻‍♀️ But then I started realizing that he liked art with a purpose or mission/job – coloring on a blank paper wasn’t fun to him 🤔 Watercoloring to find secret letters – 😱 He’d sit and paint all day 👍🏻 It’s all about finding what they like, what drives them, and tailoring activities to fit their personality 😘 Give these secret letters a go – maybe even hide some pumpkins in there for Halloween 🎃🎃🎃 Happy Weekend to All 😘🎉😘

I've had to be a lot more gentle and kind with myself, and rid myself of the notion that somehow, someway, I could balance it all at once. I had to be present and in the moment. The moment that I tried to take on too much would prove to be the moment that my pregnant body would let me know that perhaps I should slow it down. I am super excited to partner with and share my thoughts on the blog! Bloomlife is a resource that allows preggo people to monitor contraction information in real time. It provides information such as the duration of contractions, as well as frequency via a sensor gently placed three fingers below your belly button. The Bloomlife monitor gathers this information without the use of ultrasound and is completely non-invasive/ passive. Today, I share my #NotSoPrivateParts on trusting/ leaning into your personal birthing essence, knowing yourself, and how the contraction monitor can simply serve as confirmation of your innate birthing intuition. Side note: is offering a 10% OFF weekly rental! Simply use the Promo Code: Brandi10 (Go to LINK IN BIO to read today’s blog post) #Ad #BloomLifeMom #NotSoPrivateParts

Brandi’s bio mentions she is a writer and songwriter, but those simple words don’t do justice to her beautiful writing on her Instafeed. Brandi’s words are lyrical, thoughtful, and inspiring, and serve to lift of women and mothers everywhere. She also focuses on themes related to social justice, self-care, self-reflection, pregnancy and birth (she is also a doula), breastfeeding, feminism, and finding joy in every day experiences.

At the end of the week I find myself making "everything but the kitchen sink" type of meals. Today I decided to use the tail end of Monday's grocery shop to make this delicious breakfast. I have a "anything goes" rule when it comes to scrambled eggs and the more creative I get the more my family seems to love it! Just throw in your leftover veggies, meats, cheeses etc. scramble together and voila! The perfect breakfast. 🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳 Ingredients: -eggs -vegetables (today I used broccoli, tomato and kale) -cheese (I used shredded cheddar) -avocado and @traderjoes everything but the bagel seasoning for the top 🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅 Recipe: -cook veggies in the pan. Scramble your eggs, add your cheese. -plate with a few different sides- I had leftover black beans this week, toast, fruit etc. #onepanmama #eggs #scrambledeggs #cookingmoms #breakfast #eggsforbreakfast #fridaybreakfast #mostimportantmealoftheday #protien #delicious #beans #blackbeans #leftovers #greens #cheese #tomato #eatyourcolors #eatyourgreens #eatyourveggies #healthybreakfastideas #healthybreakfast #onepanmeal #onepanmeals #eggsforthewin #avocado #avoforthewin #avo #everythingbutthebagel #everythingbutthebagelseasoning #traderjoes
