We LOVE this vegetable sink we purchased last week from @amazon 🥕🌽🍅 Arthur has so much fun playing with the running water from the tap and is learning to chop the vegetables in half and match them together 🥰 . . . #lockdownlife #covid19 #isolation #workfromhome #mumandson #dadandson #parentinghacks #parenting #toddlersofinstagram #babiesofinstagram #toddlerlife #mumlife #motherhood #firsttimemum #parentingtips #familyofthree #parentblog #workingparents #arthurjoshuamorgan #AJ #october18baby #babyboy #babyblueeyes
DAY 14 of self isolation: I thought we’d make cards with our hand/foot prints. I quickly changed my mind... We painted paper plates instead 🎨 (We’ll do prints when Daddy has a day off work to help ) 🤣 . . . #lockdownlife #covid19 #isolation #workfromhome #mumandson #dadandson #parentinghacks #parenting #toddlersofinstagram #babiesofinstagram #toddlerlife #mumlife #motherhood #firsttimemum #parentingtips #familyofthree #parentblog #workingparents #arthurjoshuamorgan #AJ #october18baby #babyboy #babyblueeyes
Got the craft box out yesterday and made this, 2020 is a year we most definitely won't forget. I guess this is our own little keepsake, or lock down time capsule.....
What do you need to STOP doing? Do you need to stop the negative self talk? Or stop sitting on your butt watching Netflix? Do you need to stop wasting money? Or stop letting people treat you poorly? For me, I need to stop being so hard on myself and give myself grace. I need to remember that I’m not in control and I’m exactly who God knew I’d be. So, what in your life needs to stop? 🛑. #boymom 💙 #ily #EliDouglas #familyofthree #coachmelissa #firsttimemom #godislight #beachbodymama #answeredprayers #teamlightlifters #motherson #dragonbaby #blessedmess #martinlife #rehobothbeach #lewesdelaware

I’ve been feeling a bit down recently. Looking at Zainab and thinking how time flies so fast and that she’s turning one in a few days. . .. . I was saddened because of the situation now, that we won’t be able to celebrate Zainab’s 1st birthday with friends and families (or maybe it’s Mommy who wants the party - guilty! 🙋♀️ ). . .. . We had already planned for her birthday party, invitations was about to be sent out but then we decided to cancel because of the unforseenable circumstance and for the safety of everyone. . .. . Families won’t be able to fly over due to flights being halt and Friends won’t be able to come cuz of social distancing. . .. . But then again...I thought of...what is more important? To have a party or being safe? . .. . With what’s happening now, I can say I’m fortunate to still have a house to stay in, food on our table and a family whose at home, safe and healthy. What more should I ask for?!? . .. . Blame it to mood swings maybe?!? 😬😬😬 — my sentiments xxx 💚 . . . . . #mysentiments #moods #family #familyofthree #staypositive #stayhome #stayathome #staysafe #mylife #mydubai #momlife #dubaimum #dubaimom #dontworrybehappy #itwillbeokay #celebratelater

This one time, in lock down, Jacob slept right through the night!! 💙 What a doll!! But don't be fooled, he hadn't done it since 😅 He is so much better these days though, just one wake in the night rather than every hour which is what it had got to. Needless to say, the night he slept through, we spent the whole night awake wondering why J wasn't waking up! We were blessed with a kid that doesn't sleep, so this is a MASSIVE milestone!! #babysleeping #babysleep #babynursery #myworld #familyofthree #newborn #babyski #babyboy #family #makingmemories #twentyfiveweeksold #yorkshiremum #babymilestones #firsttimemummy #firstbaby #yorkshireliving #love #happiness #yorkshirelife #mummy

Hard to believe that a week ago today we welcomed our little Princess into the world! 🐰Introducing Miss Willow Ingrid Claassens, who has already stolen our hearts!! 💗🍼😘 #babyclaassens #quarentinelifeisntsobad #andthentherewerethree #whatdididowithourtimebefore #bornduringapandemic #familyofthree #besthusbandeverbymyside
Oh Pekoe. How you make Mommy & Daddy’s heart explode. ❤️
Helplessness, you feel it too? . It’s ok to feel this way, you are NOT ALONE, and this feeling is valid AF right now. . I’ve caught myself feeling guilty that I’m at home in quarantine with minimal symptoms, while others are at work and out helping others. . I’ve felt very isolated that my son has been with his dad for weeks while I’m at home, not doing much of anything. . I also had a moment of selfishness this morning when deciding that since I’m still running a fever, he should go stay with his nana & papa for a couple weeks to lesson his chance or expose, when all I wanted to do was tell him to come home. . This is a crazy time in our lives and I’m sure we will come out on top, but for now we HAVE to make sacrifices to be able to flatten the curve and do our FUCKING PART, it’s not an easy thing to do, but if you do not NEED to go out, don’t, it’s your responsibility as well as it is of mine to stop the spread and flatten the curve. It’s not to late. ❤️ . . . . #flattenthecurve ⚠️ #thankyoufrontlineworkers #familyofthree #iphoneface #facetimeforthewin
We decided to enjoy some fresh air while daddy cooked dinner on the grill. Madison and I haven't left the house for anything other than an occasional walk in three weeks. It's tough being stuck in the house every day. Especially when all I want is to show this little girl the world. I will say that this time in quarantine will make us appreciate the opportunity to travel so much more. We will eventually take Madison around the globe. And it will be worth the wait.

The timing wasn’t perfect. Swipe to see our self timer family photo 💁🏼♀️I hopped on the wrong side and had to run around before the timer went off. By the 10th photo, I was in place. This spot, right here, is the birthplace of our future. We got married here and are building our forever home here. Our children will grow up on this very beautiful hill. This week, in a business training group, we talked a lot about vision and what your future will look like in 5-20 years. In the next year we will have completely built our entire home out of pocket with no mortgage! That’s # 1 on our list of immediate future goals. A lot of people say “I wish I could do that,” but the truth is, when you decide what it is you really want out of this life, you set your sites, and you don’t waiver. You do whatever it takes to get there. Today, I’m thankful, that even though the timing wasn’t exactly right when I said ‘yes,’ to coaching, I took the leap of faith & it’s finally my time to kick it up a notch. Today I’m thankful that I was able to pay my bills with the money I made from coaching this week. That timing, was perfect. Beyond grateful for this opportunity. If you have, or want to create, big plans and a vision for your future and want some extra confidence and money to accomplish all that you’ve planned— I’ve got a seat for you right beside me in this journey. Send me a DM and let’s figure out how you can do this too ✨ Check out my stories to see the latest updates photo of our house!
April 2nd, 2020 | This little Pickle Butt of a baby came into the world. Hallie is her name and she is my ride or die snuggler. This might explain why I have not been posting or updating my story. Hallie is a week old today! We are home now and settling in to her new surroundings. To my clients! I’m still here for you. Our Zoom meetings just may included my new assistant. Once this virus has passed us over I look forward to Hallie meeting each and everyone one fo you. Hugs to you all! Stay healthy and strong! . . . . . #newborn #newbornbaby #babygirl #daddieslittlegirl #likefatherlikedaughter @fatherly #familyofthree #coronababy #babyfeet #commercialphotography #profotousa #profotoa1 @canonusa @profotousa
My husband keeps talking about all you “𝗮𝘄𝗲𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗹𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗲𝘀” - doing these haircuts in the kitchen!!🙄 I’m holding strong - my scissors are staying in their resting place.... . What have you done to your hair or someone else’s so far? 🤣🤪 #exavedastylist
THESE CARS ARE OURS!!! Whoop whoop. No more car payments! Wow! Andrew and I now own both of our vehicles debt free! (hehe, even Ava thinks WOAH! ) In August of 2018, my car was in need of a maintenance that cost more then its own value so we decided to make our first big purchase as a married couple. We based this decision off of what the future would look like (aka a family with kids ). We chose a 2013 GMC Acadia. We got that paid off in May because we wanted the payments GONE! June of 2019, same thing happened with Andrew’s car.. it was getting sketchy to drive and wasn’t worth putting more money into it. We decided on a 2013 Ford Fusion. We still hated the car payments and wanted them gone ASAP. As of this past weekend, we *OFFICIALLY* paid off the car and that leaves us with NO more car payments! It feels so good. Next up... student loans!!!!!!!!
FOUR WEEKS!!!! Four whole weeks of....... 🐻Loving you so much it actually hurts!!!! 🐻Kissing those ridiculous cheeks every second of every day. 🐻Repeating ‘I can’t believe your mine’ at least 324 times a hour. 🐻Missing my family and friends so much it breaks me. 🐻Being joint to the hip as a family of three. @wazzzzaco Although it is the hardest in the world not to have the support we always dreamed we would get.. the time we have had to bond as a family has been irreplaceable and I am so grateful for it! 🐻Crying over EVERYTHING and endless endless worry about what’s going on right now. 🐻 Being ridic sleep deprived and surviving on three hours a night.. HELP ME. thank god for PG tips and Curb Your Enthusiasm. 🐻Refreshing the Asda Tesco Ocado Morrison website 45784 a hour. 🐻Feeling my heart explode every time I look into those little blue eyes! 🐻Opening my fridge 3048583 a minute and wondering why no new chocolate magically appears. 🐻Crying with laughter every time Teddy does his poo strain face. I feel ya pain hun. 🐻Living in PJs, with dried sick in my hair is the new normal. And feeling like we’ve won the lottery if we both manage to shower. 🐻Just feeling so ridiculously grateful to be in my little Teddy Bear Bubble. You’ve brought me so much happiness at such a scary time!! Sending you all so so much love and hope you are all okay!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Last night, at 4am, after the third night in a row of not sleeping a wink, I could feel myself going into a downwards spiral and thinking a whole load of neggy thoughts... which is very unlike me.. so in an attempt to snap out of it I have made a list of some of the things i’m SO excited for in the future once this nightmare is over!! Please tell me what your counting down too aswell ... I feel like everyone needs a boost this weekend!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Ps thank you to @fox_and_weave for the BEAUTIFUL beautiful name plaque.. I’m going to treasure it in Teddy’s nursery forever and ever!!! 1. Being around my family 24/7 who I miss with all my heart! And Teddy getting unlimited cuddles from them to make up for all the lost time. 2. Having a queue of my friends outside the door to meet Teddy.. I just can’t wait to see everyone 💔 3. Walking along a golden beach with Teddy one day in the future and him feeling the sea for the first time! 4. Being able to make exciting plans.. which will then turn into incredible memories! 5. Week days that involve meeting my girlies for brunch and play dates and introducing Teddy to all his new friends! 6. Going out for dinner.. and ordering 50 things off every menu in sight!! 7. Summer days in the garden.. BBQs, paddling pools, Fab ice lollies and fake tan disasters! 8. A date night with @wazzzzaco .. while nanny and paps babysits! A night where we actually get dressed and feel like us again 😂 9. Snuggling up to Teddy in his nursery and reading him all of my favourite children books when his old enough to understand them! ❤️ 10. Life going back to normal.. and never ever ever taking the little things for granted ever ever again! Your turn guys ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #summersholiyay GIFTED name plaque (which makes the most stun room decoration/ birth announcement accessory )
Okay so even though I couldn’t have my actual shower I can’t help but be so incredibly grateful for the people that showed up to our digital baby shower. Our hearts are exploding with all the love! . I know at times the service could have been better and we prob could have muted everyone during the nursery tour but oops this was our first time doing something like this! I’ll be posting a nursery tour and more pics on my stories for those that missed it! 🙈 . We love everyone so much and just want to express how much we are truly grateful for all the gifts we’ve received to get us ready for our little Baby girl! 5 1/2 more weeks!! 🎉🎉🥳
❤️❤️❤️❤️ It couldn’t be more fitting that on our third anniversary our family of two has finally become a family of three!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ . We always hoped and dreamed that our little munchkin would be in our arms in time for our anniversary.. and here he is! ❤️ (Although we always planned to go out on our first little family outing and show him off to the world on this day... but I think it’s fair to say that this has not gone to plan!!😂😂🙈🙈 ) Instead we have had lots of snuggles on the couch, and I even managed to get out my pjs to go on a little countryside walk... and trust me after two hours sleep the struggle to get dressed is realllllllll!!!! Oh and one day I’ll put makeup on again... but for now.. you lot get the treat of my grey see through face!!!😂 . I’m not usually one for PDA.. I way prefer to abuse @wazzzzaco .... but for today ONLY I just need to let the world know that your my actual rock!!! I couldn’t of got through these last nine months..especially these last few ridic weeks of my life without you by my side!! Thank you for always making me laugh my head off no matter how scary or hard things have been lately .. there truly is no one else in the world I would choose to change poo explosions with at 5am or teach Teddy how to be a mini Stormzy ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #summersholiyay #familyofthree #threeyearanniversary

10 meses de Maria Francisca e a cara dela diz tudo “ estou a “ isto” de bazar de casa” ou “ já estou cheia de bos bere “ Não está nada! Está a adorar fazer 10 meses e ter os papás sempre em casa para fazer brincadeiras, cantar e ver a @fueltvportugal ! Disse Mamã ( finalmente ) dia 3 de Abril, diz papapa, mamama, dá e quando acorda da sesta diz “ já tá” 😂! Acha que é Dj, põe música no cãozinho e quando não gosta faz “ next” adora ver-se ao espelho adora bróculos está ansiosa por sair à rua! Quando ouve música bate palmas e “ dança” ( assim meio “ catatónica” para trás e para a frente.. ) Foi à festa de aniversário da Mamã ( em quarentena ) Assistiu a história a fazer-se quando foi decretado o estado de emergência Ofereceu a primeira prenda do dia do pai ao papá Vai passar a primeira Páscoa em “ Quarentena “ Fica doida quando vê o maki quando não lhe apetece comer mais fecha a boca, revira osjólhos e ignora-nos , faz cara de “ Avó MIMI” . So far so good #motherhood #familyofthree #babygirl #10months #myworld #instatakeover #xica 🍌🙈 #mariafrancisca
