The main way he falls asleep when he's super tired now: on my tummy. Otherwise he'll fight the sleep and keep playing/being a crabby patty. #mylittleboy #sleepspot #mommyisthirdfavorite #precious #lifeofaparent
That famous saying from centuries past.

The snack in question has been sourced from the ancient Mayan civilisation and originated inside a dedicated cupboard.

The kids have been in half days all week which means I've been on an art break, except for what's going on at @esthers_sketchbook. Here's an entry from the sketchbook. 
Local peeps - I hope you can make it to the WVAC's 4th Annual Surprise Invitational opening tonight. 🤞Fingers crossed that the younger 2 boys don't try to wrestle while we're there. 
Like they usually do. *sigh* . .. . .. #estherssketchbook #illustration #drawing #draw #dailydrawing #sketchdailies #sketchbook #kids #comicstrip #lifewithkids #localaz #arizonaartist #parentlife #lifeofaparent #parenthumor #parentinghumor #momhumor #cartooning #cartoon #toddlerlife #webcomic  #instacomic #webtoon #cartoonist #cartoonillustration #parenting #parentingftw

We’re trying out a new bubble bath tonight, lavender scented. Lavender is supposed to relax and soothe, and lead to better, deeper, longer sleep. I’m not overly optimistic but it doesn’t hurt to try, right?

Is there anything in your bedtime routine you think really helps with your little ones sleep? 😴

Rafa said pouch yesterday. Apraxia means hard work every single day for Rafa's team and we've been working on "puh" and "huh" and "ccchh". We watched this first video last night together and he said "poowwww-chhhh". Left me speechless. 😱

2000 followers wow I can't believe it. I have gained many more followers since I last introduced myself so I thought now might be a good time to introduce myself again. 💗I am a Mum to my little toddler, Houston who is one and a half (I don't know where that year a a half has gone) 💗I am a teacher but I have been on leave for almost two years while watching my own little one grow up. 💗I am married to my college sweet heart Ben 💙 we have been together for 10years and married for 4.
💗I have always wanted to have my own blog and have really enjoyed starting 'Grow to Know' this year. I think I have become slightly obsessed with finding hidden learning in everyday activities. 💗I love doing DIY projects and anything that involves to many tools I give to my lovely husband to help me with. 💗I absolutely love Christmas! 🎄 It is my all time favourite time of the year. (I started shopping in Aug). 💗I love Country Music 🎶

I find it tough, to let myself get involved in the every day things that most people do. I've always been a solitary person, even before I came a mom. I had a very few select friends, and other than that, I didn't venture out at all. I'm trying more lately. And honestly, I think having kids has helped. One day I'll have to reach out to another parent, so my son can play with theirs. Even after 25 years, life is a learning experience. And honestly, that's what makes all of this worth it. You can be 100 years old, and still learn or see something different, every day. #latenightmusings

I should have a category for TIMES MY CHILDREN WERE INNOCENTLY INAPPROPRIATE. 
Here's how this went: 
Oldest (singing): "It's a Mickey Mouse whorehouse, come inside it's fun inside." Me: "Uh, what?!" Him: "Whorehouse, you know, like a haunted house." Me: "Uh, no it's not. Don't say that again." Him: "Why, what does it mean?" Me: "I'll tell you when you're a LOT  older." .

Day 4: one day late! Bad start. But let's do this. 
Objective: identify your greatest strength...
Mine is literally my strength...both mental and physical. The outcomes from the shit I've dealt with, the shit I am dealing with and the shit I will deal was up to me and my strength. I've managed to overcome and 'survive' 27 years so I've done a friggin good job, if I do say so myself 😏 
Also, new selfie because I don't have pictures of my mental strength - my physical strength ... well compare last years 'selfies' to now 😏🤗 👌

Who else has dozens of paper planes strewn across their house? ✈️ Just when I think I have picked them all up, I find more days later under and in every small gap imaginable and have to fish them out with the kitchen tongs!

Jack Loves paper planes. He makes them over and over and can *almost* individually recall every one of them. I have often searched the house for a specific one with a *red volcano 🌋* drawn on it!

I think raising a toddler should officially be recognized as an exercise and recommended to everyone😶... -
Is it the bath, or feeding or dressing time? Or the adrenaline high due to panic attacks you get when they climb, stuff objects in their mouth or any part of their body? Or acting as the referee during sibling scuffle? Or the shouting we mommas do DAILY!! Let's not start on the playtime, you will play games until your brain turns mush and they are just getting started. 😮😨 -
-
Infact, every activity you perform as a parent is an exercise - you sweat, grunt, body aches and tired limbs.... -
-
Announcement: The Association of Toddler Parents of the World have Officially DECLARED raising a TODDLER as an ACCEPTABLE FORM OF EXERCISE.  For parents with more than one toddler, you automatically move to PRO LEVEL. 😵

Dear Treadmill, we would discuss in the future, when they are married. 😯

My little bro came up to visit us this weekend, so we took them to a museum walked around balboa park & ate dinner in OB. At the end of the night I ask Bella "did you have fun" and she goes "no I didn't get my face painted"! 😂🔎🔭👫 #lifeofaparent

Our responsibility as parents, is to help our children work through their problems  rather than than fixing their problems for them. It is essential we empower them to recognize they do have some control of what happens through decisions they make.  In order for children to learn from their mistakes, it is paramount that they understand that there are consequences for their actions and that we won't always be there to provide the answers everything Always. 
Don't overindulge, don't shield, allow them learn from their mistakes because that is where they develop their strengths. -

The universe likes to play tricks on us parents. Especially when it comes down to doing things for our own pleasure, and not for the baby. You put the little one down for an afternoon snooze and sneak into the living room to pick up a book you started reading a year ago. You sit down comfortably on a sofa, feet up, with a cuppa ready to have some 'me and my favorite, but forgotten book' time. But as soon as you open that book, even before you get to the end of the first sentence the baby wakes up!! Yep, the nap is over. You start again and again, but the baby will only stay asleep if you stop having fun and get on with the chores. I better mop that floor then... #momlife

When you're very limited on when you can post because you're out all day with no wifi and your toddler ran up your data using YouTube Kids. 😭 
Well, I'm home now and ready to post. 😜
I'm sure (at least I hope 😟) many parents can relate to this, or at least a variation. (Ex. "We don't lick windows" or "We don't put our toes in our mouths")... And I wish I could say it's only my 2 year old that needs to be reminded of these things. 😂😣😭 ♡

I overload myself with many tasks, goals, etc., and set myself up for failure. Maybe i do it on purpose ... 🤷‍♀️#selfsabotage 
Also: epic capture of my 'little' stinker, Khoko. 🤦‍♀️

In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.” ― N.K. Jemisin

Mommies, the next time you're plagued by mommy guilt, BELIEVE that you're doing the best you can for your child. .

Home again 🏡 I had fun with my friends this weekend, but I missed this little guy and his dad a lot! He’s both happy to see me but also mad at me for leaving him.

The connections we make now are laying the foundation for more to come😊😊. That child that will tell you what happened at school, that teenager who is open about peer pressure they're facing, that adult best friend. It all starts now.

Totally worth every sleepless night, public tantrum, sibling fights and basically every sacrifice you’ve ever had to make!

Thank you to everyone who helped us raise over $3,500 for Apraxia therapies and resources for families. Our experience at the Walk for Apraxia was sooo like our Apraxic journey. :::::::::::::::::::
The day was raining and pouring. It was uncomfortable and although not impossible, it wasn't how you'd want the weather to be. The people that Rafa could rely on were there, rain or shine, right by his side. And even though it was crappy conditions, we made the most of it. We got through it and we tried to have as much fun as possible during it. I personally found it very comforting to see all the similarities. Papí was very upset in the morning that the day we were to celebrate our children it was a crappy rainy day. Even how we both reacted to the situation reminded me of how we deal differently throughout this journey (and the irony too because he's the more positive one).
But as always, Rafa was a champ. He smiled and he laughed. He explored and even got into some mischief. He made us happy and we cheered him on. And we walked together as one. Because we're in this together. Everything in for him. ~Mamí

In Round 1 of Misheard Song Lyrics: Charlie Puth "Attention"

So we were having a heated debate in the car about the Charlie Puth song "Attention" and what exactly is being thrown. The youngest of us insisted it's the song says "You've been runnin' round, runnin' round, runnin' round throwin' that TURD UP ON MY NECK". Gross. 
Others in the car insisted he's saying "throwin' that turtle on my knee" as if that made any sense. 
Apparently he's actually saying "You've been runnin' round, runnin' round, runnin' round throwin' that dirt all on my name." Who knew?! Not us obv's. .

Couldn’t be more proud of this! It’s been fun to put my competitive spirit into something so special and meaningful to me and my family. CASANA is an organization that will be a passive part of our family for many years to come and I’m glad our first real interaction was so successful! Thanks to everyone who donated and shared and wished us luck. The Chicagoland Walk for Apraxia raised over $75k and rain didn’t stop us from doing what we planned to do. If you want to follow my family’s journey as we help our first born find his voice: through Childhood Apraxia of Speech, lots of speech therapy, lots of phonetic sounds and jokes and laughs and some tears, follow us at @findingrafasvoice. 💜

I started this account a little over a year ago and it occurred to me I’ve never introduced our family nor mentioned the reason behind the cartoons. I’m sure those that have followed me for a little while have pieced together quite a bit of it. Anyway, a late hello and thank you to everyone for following our journey. It’s a lot of fun sharing the sympathies, empathies, and laughs from parenthood with all of you 👪🐶👋

There was a time when I used to be wash by guilt if I suddenly chose to something I have been doing for years in an altogether different way. I'd be restless and would keep wondering if it was giving a right impression to my little one. One of the recent episodes was when I decided to start eating the breakfast cereal for dinner to get my weight in check. It was something very unusual for me and obviously for my child too. .
.
This was when I realised that it was not only important for me to remember but equally vital for me to teach my child that changing our views and life-long habits based on our life experiences and new, reliable information was nothing to feel ashamed about. .
.
Have you ever experienced anything similar in your life? .

Stop yelling!!! @Regranned from @shopbabies21 -  #Repost @thebabylounge (@get_repost)
・・・
As an African mom - naija one for that matter, I know yelling is 2nd nature to us. Yelling in an African home is normal - our parents did it and even though we promised ourselves we wont, well, if wishes were horses - we are doing the same yelling with our own kids.😯😮 -
You know the best lines - "very soon, you people will say am shouting", " don't kill me, I didn't kill my mom" or "you people just like to hear me shout in this house"...😂😯😒
-

Truth be told, it’s not always easy to deal with a screaming toddler or handle a pair of siblings that are pummeling each other, or are playing games that watching them doing is giving your palpitations😱😵 - but it’s important to take a deep breath, stay focused in the present, and remind yourself that you are the adult, and that you are capable of responding calmly - because yelling has no effect whatsoever on this 'digital age' children.
-

Sometimes, in order to get your message across to a child, it is much more effective to get down to the child’s level, look him in the eye, and speak in a quiet, calm voice. 
Children are great imitators and will grow up to emulate your actions, meaning it would be wise to project what you want them to do through your own actions. -- Test time: How many moms can promise not to yell from now till Monday, indicate by show of hands 🙋

I would rather fight a giraffe.
I would rather do anything than get in that bath!”
