💗SISTERS💗 these two have my whole heart! I absolutely love the bond they have mA and I secretly live through them, actually it’s not a secret, I tell them all the time if I can be the 3rd sister 😂
Growing up without a sister I never felt it, me and my brother were more than enough it seemed, but it’s as I got older and mostly after I got married that I began to feel that void in my life more and more. The moment I had Zayna, my eldest one, I began to feel that the void I once felt was closing a bit... but it wasn’t until I had my second one, Aliza, that I now feel so much more at peace. It’s as if I was meant to experience this bond through my daughters and I couldn’t feel more blessed to get to experience it through them. These two have an amazing bond and I pray that it grows stronger with each passing day iA iA 🧿 I love watching them play, fight and make each other feel better after getting in trouble for something.
This past weekend we celebrated both of their birthdays together for the first time and I couldn’t help but feel emotional watching them both growing up so fast 💞
Curious to know if any of you feel this way too? #sisters#sistersister#sistersquad#blessings#instafamily#fambam#sisterbonding#birthdaygirl#winterbirthday#indy#babygirls#kiddos#daughters#nonazar

My beautiful Faith has grown so much! However, her height is not the only thing that has increased. She has grown in leaps & bounds in her spiritual walk. Watching her have her own relationship with Jesus has been the sweetest thing for me to witness. ❤️ Scripture says: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” - 1 Timothy 4:12 🌟 Faith lives this out to the fullest. She inspires me & even her older sister to be a better woman & Christian. She has a spiritual maturity that can only be credited to her hunger & thirst for the things of God, & the Holy Spirit filling her. This past semester, Faith started a group. She could have chosen to have a variety of activities as the focus of the group. She chose to start a group doing a Biblical Study with young girls going & blessing our community & sharing our Christian faith! My just-turned 13 year old literally holds hands & leads prayers with grown women & men such as firefighters, police officers, the elderly, & college students. 🤩 This semester coming she is starting another group for young girls to help disciple them to become the kind of girls God desires them to be. 🙌🏼 She is a spiritual warrior with the gift of encouragement, & it blesses me beyond measure to watch what the Lord is doing in her & through her. She is honoring, respectable, & teachable. We literally talk for hours about deep things, cry, & even crack up laughing at how foolish our BIG dreams seem to many, but how nothing is impossible with our God! My girls are not only my daughters, they are my friends & some of my favorite people in the world! 😍 I am so thankful they are better girls than I ever was at their age, & I pray they stay focused on God all the days of their lives. ❤️❤️❤️ #faith#christian#bible#holidays#ttdholidays#christmas#mychristmaspresent#blessed#momlife#parenting#family#daughters#mypeeps#mom#ilovebeingamom#homeschool#homeschooler#iteach#iteachtoo#365homeschool#teach#teacher#education#iloveteaching#teachersofinstagram#certifiedteacher#homeschoolmom#theresourcemom
I call this, Unsolicited Advice
Here is a momma holding on tight to her baby while a storm of unsolicited advice intensifies around them. It took me some time to learn that the only person’s opinion that matters is my own. (Even though I’m pretty sure my daughter thinks I’m BADASS👩👧)
I’ve been working on a new project the past couple of months and after weeks of searching for an artist, I realized I had the power to create what I was looking for all along.

Happy Friday the 13th!
We LOVE advent calendars in our house...and I spend a lot of time thinking about what to stuff into those little plaid pockets. Some days are small surprises and some days ~ like today ~ are OMG surprises. Thank you ❤️ @sunnybirdboutique for this gorgeous Starbucks bracelet and the smile it brought this morning!
Hoje a “culpa materna” veio pesada.
De repente senti que estou fazendo tudo errado. TUDO. MESMO. Já sentiu isso? Só não me fala que não, não hoje.
A alimentação parece errada, o horário do banho também. A hora de dormir assim como as brincadeiras. A organização da casa, o casamento, o trabalho. Está tudo errado. Deve ter algo certo, não é possível! Hoje, certo mesmo é só a certeza que está tudo errado.
Será que precisa ser tão pesado? Mães não tem o “direito” de errar? Reclamar de algo é crime?
“Tá reclamando por que? Não quis ser mãe?”, “Tá cansada? Ninguém pediu para nascer.” É tanta pérola carregada de falta de empatia que a gente escuta. O pior é que geralmente essas pérolas vem de pessoas que não se oferecem para absolutamente nada.
Por que SÓ a mãe não pode “não estar afim” por estar em um dia ruim? De onde raios vem essa ideia que mãe tem de ser a rocha, a heroína, a mil e uma utilidades? Pedir ajuda é fraqueza? Querer dividir tarefas é preguiça? Deixar de fazer algo, hora ou outra, é desleixo ou irresponsabilidade? Claro que NÃO! Chega dessa história! Temos que dividir TODA a carga. Saber aceitar e pedir ajuda de pessoas próximas é o que podemos fazer de melhor para nossa sanidade. Trocar com a nossa rede de apoio vale ouro. Um tempo pra gente, nem que seja um cafezinho. Não temos que engolir a seco sentimentos nem frustrações. Precisamos falar a respeito, elaborar. Limpar o coração. DIVIDIR. Assim, e só assim as coisas ficarão mais leves. Só assim a culpa vai se afastar.
Cada um com seu peso. Certo? Promete que vai tentar?
“Are these all yours?!”
“Do you run a daycare?!”
“Are those twins?”
“Wow you’re busy!”
“You certainly have your hands full.”
We get all kinds of reactions when we are out together. There’s lots of head turning, side remarks, and attention (good and bad) that comes with having “so” many little kids. ..
One day I was dealing with a massive tantrum with Avia in Target toy aisle, and she was screaming/kicking/“freaking out,” I had all the kids. I sat down with her on the floor and calmly explained to her why she couldn’t have a toy (this took about 10 min). When I was in line to leave I had 2 women approach me, in which I thought “oh sh$t what did my kids do now?!” - and said “wow we just want to say how impressed we were in handling that situation with your daughter in the toy aisle, it’s nice seeing someone not scream or shut down their kids in public, but educating them. And your other kids just standing their patiently waiting for you, it was amazing to see.”
I was totally thrown off guard and honestly didn’t realize what I had done until they had pointed it out, I was just trying to get her to stop crying and because I have 5 kids I couldn’t just carry her out of the store, I needed her on her 2 feet to walk. ..
Because we have such a #bigfamily with so many kids, whether I want to or not, I have to spend lots of time educating the kids in public, mainly because I can’t just pick everyone up and leave 🤦🏼♀️. ..
And did I mention selfies are getting harder and harder these days ☝️😹. ..
