Kris came for a conference, I came for the food, and the girls came because they had too 😂😂 And yesterday they let us know it 🤦🏼♀️ You’re bound to have a bad day when traveling with kids and yesterday was ours. So we ended the day early, grabbed some Thai food and watched Harry Potter in the hotel room. Still not a bad way to end the day in my book. 👌🏻 I’ll gladly take all the bad days just to experience new things with my family. #family#adventure
l woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Actually, it was the wrong bed all together (l see you Greta). l almost backed out on my Disney day promise but we turned those frowns upside down and came anyway. Sometimes, you just gotta change your attitude and l’m glad l did. PS l bribe my children to ride big kid rides. For the record, Greta didn’t like Guardians of the Galaxy but she 100% approves of the cotton candy reward. 😜Happy almost weekend!
Greta has loved books since birth. Anytime we would read to her as a newborn, she would stop, freeze, and watch us intently. And she has done that ever since. She is a true bookworm. Hazel?? Not so much. 😂😂 Hopefully she’ll grow to love them one day. We had the opportunity to try out @thelittlefeministbookclub book + activity subscription box— A crate focused on diversity! I love that. Greta’s favorite part was the activity book included and mine was the simple card of questions you can ask your child about the book. It really starts a discussion. Thank you @thelittlefeministbookclub for letting us be a part of your launch! Crates launch TODAY! Go check them out! What a great Christmas gift for your little ones, something they can enjoy all year long. 🤓📚#thelittlefeministbookclub
This morning Greta started asking questions about adoption, more specifically Hazels adoption. We’ve always talked about Gretas adoption with her but now that she’s four, I think it’s starting to sink in a bit. She was very curious as to how Hazel got here and got sad when she assumed Hazel “came from” me. I explained that they both have birth mothers AND me, she smiled. I could tell she was relieved that Hazel too was adopted. While their adoptions are very different, I hope it’s always a bonding factor for the two of them. November is National Adoption Month and in honor of that, I’ve thought about putting together a little Q&A about adoption. So if you’ve got a question, throw it at me or DM me. I love to spread joy about adoption! We kind of like it around here. 😉😘 Happy Tuesday! #nationaladoptionmonth#adoption
Binky smiles are my absolute favorite. What is it about them that just makes me go 😍😍? I don’t know, but it’s a real thing. Also, swipe to see the two cutest little teeth ever! ❤️ PS Hazel is completely hooked to this binky from @twistshakebaby. She now won’t take any other binky.

Feeling completely wiped out from the week but also completely happy for the memories made. I love my little family and our little adventures. Now it’s time for laundry. 🤦🏼♀️😫 #backtolifebacktoreality
I had so much joy today being able to say “yes” to Greta much more than I have to say “no”. Birthday week is kind of awesome and watching her little dreams come true, like FINALLY getting a Mickey Balloon, was awesome. It’s the little things. Tomorrow is our final day of birthday week and I think it’s gonna be the icing on the cake, I mean the sprinkles on the ice cream cone (hint, hint 😉) 🍦🍦Happy almost Weekend! #langyladiesdodisney
Oh my Greta. You are four! Four! I remember waiting all Halloween day, talking to your birth mom expecting you to come that night. Instead you came early the 1st and I missed the birth. It’s ok, I forgive you. 😉 Ever since, you have done things your way. You know what you want, when you want it, and nothing will change your mind. You have more personality than we know what to do with and you can be sweeter than sweet. You’re also super sassy and act way beyond your years. 😉Happy 4th Birthday my munchkin. I loooooooooooooove you. ❤️❤️ #adoption#4thbirthday
Started celebrating our favorite four year old this week with a trip to the zoo. We introduced birthday week to her today and when she asked for cotton candy, we gladly obliged. She said, “I LOVE birthday week!” We may have created a problem. 🤣🙈 But I’m so excited to spend the week creating memories and giving her surprises. #birthdayweek
This munchkin turns four next week and I can’t talk about it. Three has been my absolute favorite! And four is turning out to be suuuuuper sassy. 🙄 Kris and I have a whole week planned of surprises and this girl keeps trying to guess what we have up our sleeves. So far, she’s guessed a unicorn, a race car, and an umbrella. 🦄🏎⛱🤔 I sure hope she’s not disappointed when none of those items appear next week. 🤣 What’s the best thing your child asked for? #kidsarethebest
Today I’m suffering a head cold so the quick trip to Target (to get formula, ‘cause we were out 🤦🏼♀️) and cookie baking with Greta (‘cause I promised) has about done me in for the day. I think I’ll go curl up on the couch the rest of the day —until one of the girls inevitably needs me the second I sit down. 😫Happy Monday Friends!
Woke up this morning to cooler temps and an overcast sky expected ALL day. 🙌🏻 Everyone wants to live in California for all its sun, but I’ll be honest, I reeeeeaaally love the overcast days. My soul craves it every now and then. And.we.were.due. Today has felt just a little bit like Fall even if we are still in shorts and T-shirts. 😉 Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!
