Jenn flew off to New York today for a well-earned holiday leaving Darwin and I for a bachelor week. It's started in a very civilised fashion 😂
Among all the million other things I'll be doing this week, I solemnly swear to hunt down and flay anyone who uses the term 'daddy daycare'. It's not daycare or babysitting when you're a parent. It's just, you know, life. #dadlife#parenting#kids#dadsofinstagram
Last week this handsome guy turned 33! 😘 Wow we are getting old 😱, and although we certainly don’t “feel” old, it’s pretty obvious we are. Phil has definitely become a true “Dad”. He gets excited about LED lightbulbs being on sale (he’s bragged to so many people about what he paid lol). He said to me just the other day, that before he came home he had to swing by Walmart because there was a sale on a 4-pack of windshield washer fluid. He came home with not ONLY that, but vitamins too. We’re pumped about how quiet our new dishwasher is, and how warm our new insulated door keeps the garage. Our conversations these days mostly revolve around our kids, and we definitely aren’t getting enough sleep. But I wouldn’t have it any other way! Glad to be growing older with my best friend. Now he just has to work on the Dad jokes! 😂😂😂 .
Parents, thank you for taking time out of your busy days to come see what we've been up to these past few months! We hope you had fun checking out our myriads of projects, watching our skits and robots, investigating a crime scene, and more! (Congratulations #22 —the competition was fierce but you are this year's Best Dressed Turkey 🦃) Wishing you all a wonderful, restful break! #todayatschool
O's first water park experience. To him it would have felt like a crazy theme park. For us it is a new local park that has a few water fountains. Either way we both had fun! Although the look on his face was definitely one of shock when he felt the cold water running over his feet. More days like this please!
In the last year I️ life has changed so much and I’m so grateful! Being a mom is an experience that I️ don’t think you can really prepare for but it comes to you naturally. The love you have for your baby is unreal. But the love you have for your partner is something you work in and nurture. I️ am so in love with my guy @mccuestyle. He’s not just an amazing dad, but an amazing fiancé, diy-er, cook, the list could go on. Everything is about to change in two weeks and I’m so scared because our whole family dynamic will be new. But I️ know with him by my side we will get through it and Iz will feel just as loved as when her papa spent all day with her for 20 weeks. I️ love these two so much! Here’s to the start of new beginnings. #mccutiepartyof3#dadsofinstagram#babiesofinstagram#lovehertodeath#lovehimsomuch#babygirl 🎀 #superpapa#mancrusheveryday
• LECTURA, MÚSICA Y SUEÑO •
El primer libro que leí a Julia C., aun dentro de @cp_nieves fue un "Cuentos Completos I" de los Hnos. Grimm comprado en la Feria del Libro de #Madrid @ferialibromadrid Cada noche se acercaba al lado de la barriga donde yo leía para escuchar las terribles historias de crueldad alemana con mi voz más profunda y radiofónica. Justo cuando le leí el último cuento al día siguiente decidió salir a este mundo. Tengo una hija de lo más disciplinada!
Resulta tópico pero – hombre gestante y/o padre primigenio – hablar, cantar, leer… tanto en el embarazo como cuando tienes a tu vástago en brazos es justo y necesario. Por fin todo el % musical de tu cerebro y tus noches de karaoke sirven para algo! Y tienes suerte, porque con los bebes todo vale y nunca sabes en que momento tendrás que utilizarlo: desde “Física y Química” al completo de @joaquinsabina pasando por la sintonía de “Campeones”, hasta “Toro” de @elcolumpioasesino
¿Sabes la sensación que es que tu hija esté en brazos de otra persona, tú hables y ella gire la cabeza? Pues, amigo mío, eso se consigue hablándole cuando le cambias el pañal, en el baño y en cuanto se despierta y ve tu cara de padrazo. Lo que se traduce al fin y al cabo en tiempo. Tiempo para ella. Poco para ti.
En mi caso, Julia C. puede decirse que es una bebe acostumbrada a sonidos y ruidos - al mes estaba en una boda con @jes_set a los platos, al mes y medio en un concierto acústico y a los 2 meses en un garito a ritmo de “Viejóvenes” de #OjeteCalor celebrando mis 37- y se duerme sin problemas. Eso sí! El tintineo de una copa, cargar el lavavajillas o remover el azúcar en el café deben ser sonidos en una frecuencia audible insoportable para bebes, porque toda mi labor de horas para dormirla se va al garete con este tipo de ruidos. Naturalmente, ya no tomamos sopa. (*) NOTA: Cuando Julia C. llora porque le sale de las narices sin ningún motivo, le canto “Puro Teatro” de La Lupe. No se calla pero mola!
November 17: Can the jack-of-all trades, master-of-none saying apply to hobbies? I like a variety of hobbies. One of the hobbies I enjoy is taking photographs in nature. I am in no way a professional, but there is something about capturing the beauty of the feelings in that moment. I look at this tree and it reminds me of the excitement of finding something so beautiful in the midst of a mediocre location. I am grateful for the time I get to spend photographing moments & capturing memories.
If this isn’t the truth🙌🏾....Repost from @mompreneur_esq using @RepostRegramApp - THIS is how your friends should support you!!! Unfortunately it isn’t always like that! One of the most difficult parts of #entrepreneurship is that it often results in lots of time by yourself. It happens sometimes because your vision is too big & others around you have a much smaller vision. Not everyone is comfortable with having big dreamers & executors around. It’s because sometimes your achievements (big or small) pulls out their own insecurities. Instead of trying to follow, they’d rather feel sorry for themselves! Some, instead of being the perfect hype man in this video, would rather sit around and be mad b/c they either don’t have the courage to try to dance or they just don’t have rhythm 😂Here’s the deal: it’s NOT your job to make others comfortable. None of that is your problem!!! Bless their heart; they don’t mean it....
STOP watering yourself down to avoid judgment from people that don’t even know who they are!!!!!
Keep doing you and the ones that celebrate with you and whom you also celebrate, will be the ones that make it on the elevator all the way UP with you. The elevator isn’t meant for everyone! Some should take the stairs or just watch from outside..... #WhenIMakeItWeMakeIt
One extremely messy kid, and one who doesn’t even like food to touch the corners of his mouth. And we wouldn’t have it any other day.
We got to share some sweet family moments and the makeover of our dining room in this year’s @leonsfurniture Hello Holiday, and as you flip through the pages, you’ll be met with so many other beautiful families and their home spaces. It’s a great one, you guys. The link is in our profile, so go check it out! #leonshelloholiday#twinboys#christmasmorning
