There is something about the age that Alina is at now that I have to say makes this my favourite so far! She’s still so dependent on me but so independent at the same time and can now do certain things for herself. It makes me so proud of her. Her way of saying she loves me or a thank you after I do something nice for her is now a big cuddle or a kiss. We act silly together, we have our own humour, we read books together and play games... We start each day off by rolling over and smiling at each other and she’ll say ‘Muuummmyyyy’ and I’ll say ‘Alinaaaaa’. She’s her own little person now and I’m so lucky to be in her presence. She’s my absolute favourite. I love her so, so much ✨
When I was moving from Ukraine to England, I had one suitcase, my husband was waiting for me in a rented flat with all the necessary furniture, kitchen appliances etc. And it was just the two of us.
Canada is a bit farther away. We have an Airbnb booked and a bank account open. That's all. No car, no place to live long term, no beds, no spoons, no towels, and two more people. We can do it! Right?

I am so happy it’s finally Monday and it’s the last day of fall holiday break! In our house, Mondays means “getting our life back in order”. 😂 It’s when our cleaner comes to do the deep cleaning for four hours. I tackle five to seven loads of laundry, tidy up the house, and schedule the rest of the week. It’s also known as “mommy’s mental health day.” #amwriting#selfcare#mondaymotivation
#mancrushmonday with this hottie patottie! Monday mornings are a rough one - but this guy makes them so much better. Getting the boys ready as I shower and caffeinating me. The way to any Italian girls heart!
Oh the excitement to be an outdoors bambino! To have a huge backyard but also parklands & a freaking awesome playground across from your new home! Its kinda like xmas every day for this munchkin at the moment
She was so excited about the small amount of pocket money she had to spend at the camp shop that she set up a sweetie party - so cute, she didn't know anyone, she just thought by advertising it on a scrap of paper everyone would turn up ... I secretly went around to drum up some support #TeamCinFrance .
We're almost always waiting on this one. He lives in his own adventurous world that he sometimes gives us a glimpse into. Like the other day in the car, "Mama, I want to have a conversation about dinosaurs and how they got extinct by a asteroid." Dinosaurs are a frequent topic of discussion. Along with all things that make "kinsplosions" (explosions) or wreak havoc in the universe. 😊
Back to a few days ago when the weather was so beautiful, and we loved getting out of the house. Today I would love to stay in bed and sleep...but guess who decided she's not ready for a nap when her brother naps?! Finally she's asleep, but her brother will be up soon...so the fun begins. Can I go back in time and borrow a few pounds of energy from when I was a kid?
Yes, yes I do 👌🏼 Whether it’s motherhood, in work life or just generally, I’m going to remember this. I’m most definitely enough. Thank you, again @theyesmummum for the reminder! 💛 #positivity#mondaymotivation
Help me mommy! Most of the time I love that they still need their mommy. He is 3.5 years old and is torn between wanting to be a big boy and do things on his own and wanting to be my baby and to get all the help he needs. I try and support whatever he is going for at the moment. He was determined to climb this tree but then got scared when he got up to high. I quickly got a shot and went to help him get down.
Привет 👋🏼 Примерно с таким лицом я провела своё раннее утро😱Арина пошла в детский сад. Первые пробные 2 часа. Я пришла, открываю дверь-ко мне выстроилась очередь из мальчишек☝🏻, ноющих и кричащих: "мамааааа". А собссно моя мадама даже взгляда в мою сторону не бросила💁🏻😁Так что в стрессе вроде бы только я🤦🏻♀️ Ребёнок первый раз в сад пошёл, езда и парковка на авто в заставленных дворах, бессонная ночь 😨 В общем пока карапузы спят, я заливаюсь кофе и глубоко дышу до сих пор ☕️😂 #наша_чудесная_булочка#крошка_ари
