‘Let parents bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit
of reverence’ ~ Plato .
It’s half term holiday time so this one is for all the working parents out there - work/life balance can feel a little harder to juggle if you just aren’t able to switch off for the week and hang out with the kids. .
Don’t feel guilty - try not to feel like your being judged by the ‘parenting police’ - recent studies have shown there are very specific positive effects on children with working mums - daughters were shown to be employed in higher, supervisory positions and sons to show more empathy and be more willing to share household and parenting responsibilities. .
Mothers’ guilt was not always a mother’s lot. ❤️ this for all the wonderful Insta-Mums 👉🏻Mothers in Victorian England banished children to nursemaids before farming them off to boarding school at age five so they could continue to their high-tea social lives. Acclaimed photographer Dorothea Lange paid foster families to look after her children so she could venture off on months-long photography expeditions. .
It’s a time to get your creative head on and maybe get the kids involved in your work - let’s hear from the makers and creators in our community - what do you get your little helpers involved in during the holidays?
Join us for our next London event on 7th November in collaboration with @thepooluk and @anthropologieeu celebrating fashion and what that means to us and our community - link in bio to register 👆🏻

• love •
what could be more noble than a life spent in an open expression of love? there is a superior way to live life that all people can choose to follow if they allow it to happen. love is patient and kind, god is love, family and friends can create love, all these things are true. i believe love is an unstoppable flow that you have to actively choose to remove yourself from. it’s happening - everywhere, all the time. i believe that to show love means to be self aware and outwardly intentional to yourself, to those you cherish, and to those who don’t reflect it back. love is a state of being that can be manifest by choice and perfected through deliberate practice. don’t let fear steal it. love.

The big question was recently popped at the dinner table in our house. No not marriage. This question came out of the biggest Cherry's mouth with no concern for his little brother sitting just across the table. While discussing something the biggest Cherry would like, I said "I think you should ask for it for Christmas." He turned to face me and said "Is Father Christmas real or do you and Daddy put the presents under the tree?". 😱 He's only 7... neither of us were prepared for this! What would you of said?
Woke up to their screaming and I was terrified to see them trapped inside a hole. I was about to get them out but then saw their mother a few metres away, not bothered, just sitting there with her other two puppies. Then I observed that the hole was quite comfortable with leaf bed, well ventilated and warm. I guess it's the mother's way of punishing or something 😅 #dog#puppy#holeintheground#trapped#punishment#parentingskills don't worry the puppies were out soon
🐾So, Polar Bears actually have black skin. Yeah.
🤓Their clear and transparent hair lets sunlight go through, reaching their black skin which in turn absorbs energy from the sun.
⚡Their skin then reflects some of those light beams making the hair look white, due to luminescence.
🙌This means that in reality, Polar Bears just appear to be white. Who would've known?

JANGAN SAMPAI SI KECIL KEKURANGAN CAIRAN TUBUH
Tubuh manusia memerlukan cukup air untuk mengangkut mineral penting ke seluruh tubuh. Bila tubuh si kecil kekurangan air akibat muntah, diare, atau demam, serta air yang hilang tak segera diganti, bisa terjadi dehidrasi. Gejalanya bibir dan mulut menjadi kering, tubuh lesu, bila terjadi pada anak di bawah 18 bulan, ubun-ubunnya cekung dan urinnya kental (warna kuning gelap) dan popoknya kering.
Lalu apa yang harus Bunda lakukan? Perhatikan langkah-langkah ini:
1. Bila bayi atau anak Anda diare dan muntah perhatikan apakah si kecil demam? Bila ia segera kompres untuk menurunkan demamnya.
2. Bila bayi minum susu di botol dan belum disapih, jangan berikan susu dulu.Berikan saja air mineral dengan sendok atau botol selama 6 jam. Bila masih menyusu berikan ASI.
3. Anak harus sering minum, karena minuman terbaik bagi anak setelah ASI adalah air mineral.
4. Jangan pernah berikan obat muntah ataupun diare kepada bayi atau anak Anda tanpa terlebih dahulu konsultasi dokter.Waktu yang tepat untuk Anda membawa si kecil ke dokter adalah bila si kecil sudah diare lebih dari 6 jam dan terus menerus muntah dan mengeluarkan cairan tubuh.
This is what motherhood really looks like. This is a random day in a mom’s life.
Motherhood, simply put, is filled with where nothing special happens, where kids live their days, and moms do what they need to do.
Those moments are not necessarily picture-perfect, but they’re not filled with intense emotions of exhaustion or desperation either. They are just moments in a mom’s life and they happen much more frequently than we realize.
Those are moments in a mom's life that are real. They happen. Their happiness is very subtle and most of the time we don't even consider photographing them because there is nothing too exciting about them. There is nothing to brag about and we mistakenly assume that we have nothing to remember about them.
But those are the true moments of our lives today. The ones that will remain in our kids’ memories when they look back on their childhood.
And this is, for me, what motherhood is really about.
🤖Building games, and specifically education games, requires an amazing amount of detail, care and patience. ⠀

So it’s our ministries DTIM 2nd year anniversary today. It’s been a journey but I am so thankful for the process. I’m sure almost every month I wanted to throw in the towel but by His grace. I’m so thankful for all the ladies and people that have been behind me in prayer and words of affirmation. I still try to comprehend why God used me but hey all my broken pieces were used for His glory. Some words of wisdom before I go. “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”. (Psalms 37:4) and “in everything give thanks for this is the will of Jesus Christ for your life”.(1 Thessalonians 5:18). Thank you again for all your likes, shares and prayers. 💜👑 (DTIM LADIES I LOVE YOU 😍)
