Even a couple years in, I am still always so surprised at the strength that comes from these bottles.
Last night my two oldest girls had separate moments of emotion, caused by tiredness mostly. It started with my oldest, (she bit her finger eating...😬🥺), she couldn’t calm down, so I got some lotion and added a few drops of lavender and gave her a hand massage. She sniffed the bottle at the same time! 🥰 Once I was done she felt better, but asked if I could put the lavender in the diffuser, because she loves it so much!
Next, my middle girl came to the door complaining that her hand hurt, we looked and it was a raised up cut (maybe a splinter at first). Just like her sister I could tell she was tired, so I grabbed the lavender- she just inhaled it in. I cleaned the little owie (it looked like the splinter had come out on its own) and put a drop of lavender on neat topped with a bandaid. She calmed down instantly and was able to get back to bed for some much needed rest!
We are so lucky to be a part of your village! Thank you to our amazing families and the community that supported us through these unprecedented times!!! We are so excited for June! As we slowly progress to finding some normalcy, we have some exciting things going on at TUMBLES!
🔴Our virtual STEAM camps start June 1st and it’s not too late to sign up. We still have a few more slots available!
🔵Our private plays will continue through June 15th.
🟠We are starting to offer birthday parties with limited guests and based on CDC guidelines.
🟢Our virtual classes have been so popular that we added a few more time slots and TUMBLES will continue to offer them.

In Dantumadiel (Friesland) ging de heropening van de kinderopvang niet onopgemerkt voorbij. Gerben Wiersma, wethouder Onderwijs, kwam hoogstpersoonlijk langs op zes Kids First locaties en werd vergezeld door Beleidsadviseur Onderwijshuisvesting Akkie Visser.
Handen schudden zat er niet in, gezien iedereen anderhalve meter afstand houdt. Maar ook daar was aan gedacht. Voor elke locatie had Wiersma een attentie meegenomen, om een hart onder de riem te steken en de waardering uit te spreken voor wat de kinderopvang doet en hoe pedagogisch medewerkers bijdragen aan de ontwikkeling van kinderen.
Sometimes all it takes is a little hand reaching for yours, to remind you....
That when we have each other, we have everything.
That we are all made in the image of God and He created us all beautifully.
That family is who we choose it to be.
These little ppl are reliant on us to be role models and we need to love everyone just as Jesus did!
Let’s make a pact to see each other as God sees us - imperfectly perfect human beings made just as He imagined. mmmmK?!
Bc if we were all the same, life would be boring and not as colorful! 💜 Drop me an emoji if you agree!

Tante persone, quando parliamo della nostra iniziativa parla di eccessivo allarmismo...dicono che ‘tutto sommato, i bimbi sono stati felici di stare finalmente con i propri genitori, che hanno guadagnato il calore famigliare’ voremmo dire che oltre a questi bambini fortunati ci sono quelli con genitori che hanno dovuto fare delle grosse rinuncie o dei sacrifici (che non possono durare a lungo termine) per poter seguirli continuando a lavorare o cercando lavoro.
Bambini per cui la scuola/asilo vogliono dire un pasto assicurato, un contatto umano rassicurante, Bambini diversamente abili con bisogni speciali...(lo dicevano benissimo oggi @sergiocontinibali e #RaffaeleMantegazza durante la diretta @uppa.it poco fa) sono soprattutto questi bambini per cui ci stiamo mobilitando, URGE avere risposte concrete! #AvetepensatoaNOI#kidsfirst#aiutiamolefamiglie#ilfuturodellitalia#WLASCUOLA #NONCISIAMO #iorestoescluso #prioritaallascuola
Wouldn’t it be nice to raise kids that are full of confidence, have spunk, and compassion! This is what we at TUMBLES strive for! We encourage positive self talk, praise effort instead of ability, and teach resilience. Our classes are designed to really motivate and shape the minds of the next generation! Come check us out!

I had big plans to clean my house today. Like, REALLY clean... but then I quit and decided my family was much more important and fun! (Never mind that I have made this same decision on repeat for approx 10 weeks!)
My house is a mess. A literal mess!
But my kids won’t want to play uno with me forever. Our weather won’t always be this close to perfect and I won’t always have this much TIME to give them.
PS. If you like to clean houses for fun and for free, hit me up. 🤷🏻♀️🤣
WHAT ABOUT US?
Yes, US, The children.
Do you see us? Can you hear us?
We’ve stayed here all this time at home.
In our beautiful, ugly, small, big, crowded or silent homes.
We were told we couldn’t go to school, that we couldn’t play with other children, that we couldn’t hug our grandparents, that we couldn’t meet our friends.
So we didn’t.
We spent beautiful moments with our family (but maybe that’s not the case for all of us), for a while we did a little homework, then online lessons started, with the faces of all the schoolmates and the teacher but without being able to truly speak to any of them.
We did all that.
And then the sun came, the fresh leaves, the flowers, and we were told we couldn’t go play outside.
We followed that rule too.
We behaved better than adults, the ones who didn’t resist going jogging, or walking the dog every hour, the ones who went on long walks on sunny days.
We made up our own games, our parents dedicate all their free time to us, and for that we are thankful, but, with no offence, playing and talking to a child is different. It helps us grow and teaches us how to be part of a community.
We spent months watching our parents in front of the computer or on the phone, we understood we shouldn’t disturb them when they did those things, even if they were doing them all day long.
We learned that rule too.
We did our best to be good, for many days, and “when this Virus thing will go away” is the most common phrase we use whenever we try to imagine the future.
Now what we ask you is
WHAT ABOUT US?
What did you plan for our next few months?
Did you think about those of us who’s family need financial help?
Did you think of those who’s parents already went back to work?
Did you think of how we will go back to being with our classmates and teachers?
Did you think of when we will be able to see our grandparents again?
Did you think about US?
Did you think about OUR future?

There’s no ‘I’ in team. It’s a lesson we teach our children from a young age, a lesson that Ben is learning right now with his new hockey team, and a lesson that we often reflect on because, as adults, we know life is easier when you have people to help you through it.
There is also no ‘I’ in co-parents. This is a lesson we had to learn quickly and a lesson we remind ourselves of often. Although it’s not always easy, we know that if one or all of us decide to only focus on our individual wants/needs/beliefs, our team will surely fail and the people who will suffer most are our kids.
So here we are, being the best team and co-parents we can be for our little hockey star. We showed up, we sat together, and we cheered together as Ben played his very first hockey game of the season with all of us in his corner. @unconventionallyblended
This post was before the murder of George Floyd. Floyd’s death reminds me more than ever why I became friends with Stokey. His story below is why he won’t stop fighting⬇️⬇️. We became friends during the Freddie Gray uprising. Our love for our city is our bond. His fight for young people hasn’t wavered. His heartbreak is real. I support him and believe in him. I tell him he can help the world—Baltimore and beyond. I support him in his race for Mayor because he told me he could make a difference. I trust him. I’ve seen him create so many successes in the past 5 years. He won’t sit still until he change this city. His love, leadership, management skills, his community/police relations, business acumen, secret genius, ingenuity, resourcefulness, his personal success, ability to work across different business, civic and social levels is valuable. His connection to citizens and love is his power. Posted • @thestokeyproject *****TRUE STORY*****.⬇️⬇️
Yesterday, while I was on the Eastside checking on the people...I noticed a little kid staring at me. As I approached him, the lady next to him yelled out, “He said is that my daddy.” I thought that was a cute gesture until I found out that his father was murdered last December, in these Baltimore streets. I was numb! A sharp pain ran through my heart for the kid. It was unfortunate and sad. When I found out who his dad was, I showed him a video to remind him of how great his dad was.. He stared at the video and then back at me, but he said nothing. From that moment forward my day was blown.. How can an innocent kid be left to mourn for the rest of his life and at any given moment..think that his dad will reappear. I’m praying for that kid and many just like him..the pain is real and it hurts the ones we least expect when we take a life.. We can do better and will do better.. #Kidsfirst#change 🙏🏾🖤🙏🏾🖤 #stokeyformayor#stokeyforbmore

E NOI? Noi, si i bambini, le bambine Ci vedete? Ci sentite? Noi siamo sempre rimasti qui A casa Nelle nostre belle, brutte, piccole, grandi, affollate o silenziose case. Ci é stato detto che non potevamo più andare a scuola, che non potevamo più giocare con altri bambini, che non potevamo più abbracciare i nonni, che non potevamo più incontrare i nostri amici. Lo abbiamo fatto. Abbiamo passato dei momenti belli con la nostra famiglia (ma forse non è stato così per tutti noi) e per un po’ abbiamo fatto pochi compiti, poi sono iniziati quelli al computer con le facce di tutti i compagni e della maestra ma senza riuscire veramente mai a parlare con qualcuno. Lo abbiamo fatto. Poi è arrivato il sole, il verde, i fiori e ci è stato detto che non potevamo andare fuori a giocare. Abbiamo ascoltato anche questa regola. Siamo stati più bravi degli adulti, di quelli che non hanno resistito a fare jogging, ad uscire ogni ora con il cane, di quelli che sono andati a passeggio nei giorni di sole. Noi ci siamo inventati i nostri giochi, i nostri genitori ci hanno dedicato tutto il loro tempo e per questo li ringraziamo, ma senza offesa, parlare e giocare con un bambino è un altra cosa. Ci aiuta a crescere imparando a stare in una comunità. Abbiamo passato mesi a vedere i nostri genitori al computer o al telefono, abbiamo capito che non potevamo interromperli mentre facevano queste cose anche se le facevano tutto il giorno. E abbiamo imparato anche questa regola. Abbiamo cercato di fare i bravi, per tanti giorni e ormai “quando non ci sarà più il virus” è la frase che usiamo in ogni discorso per immaginarci quello che sarà il futuro. Ora quello che vi chiediamo è E NOI? Cosa avete pensato per i nostri prossimi mesi? Avete pensato a chi di noi ha bisogno di sostegno? Avete pensato a chi ha i genitori che sono già tornati a lavorare? Avete pensato a come torneremo a stare assieme ai nostri compagni e alle nostre maestre? Avete pensato a quando potremo rivedere i nostri nonni? Avete pensato a NOI? Avete pensato al nostro futuro? 💔 @liselottewatkins@giopastori@olimpiazagnoli sono i tre illustratori che hanno creato i disegni di questo messaggio. In bio il link per scaricarli
