This morning, I woke Zion at 5.20am so we could go to a waterfall at sunrise. we talked, explored, swam, then went out for breakfast
What do we want for our kids? .
I often wonder about how much they're pushed and shoved towards success when their natural instinct is for play & creativity.
Play & creativity gets squeezed out
and replaced with seriousness & significance. .
we tell kids
what to think
how to think
when to speak
when to sit
and when to stand
with a future of artificial intelligence on the horizon, we're doing an equally awesome job of robotising our kids .
The fact that its monday morning, the world tells me that my child needs to be in school by the time the bell rings. sitting in his chair.
My own inbuilt mothering mechanisms (guilt) have taken years to recalibrate out of this social agreement and to think independently around what ACTUALLY serves my child's development at the highest level .
I wholeheartedly agree that education is important. and yet...
There's a wider scope on education that we've traditionally missed. one that more completely serves our children as whole human beings. and, there's many ways to provide it. not just through schooling.
so yeah, as we played in the waterfall this morning, while the sun was coming up.. I heard zion say 'this is the best morning ever mum', and I felt damn good for having the balls to trust myself .
Childhood is not a fart.
it doesn't need to be forced out.
Mother and son bonding. I finally convinced him to get a facial 😜😅 I keep telling him he will thank me in the future if he will take care of his skin and of course girls like boys who are neat, with clean nails and ears, and when they smell good.
More importantly, he needs to learn how to be a gentleman and to always obey his mother. Because, you know? Mommy knows best. 😜😘😉 #motherandson#motherknowsbest#myfavoriteeldestson#love#teenager
Hoje já não vivo mais por mim, vivo por alguém.
Já não peço mais por mim, peço por alguém.
Já não agradeço mais por mim, agradeço por alguém.
E será assim, até Deus permitir!
Eu amo passar o meu tempo com meu filho, isso me faz realmente feliz!
A parte mais doce da minha vida!
Mamãe ama muito esse pinguinho de gente.🙏💙
Mamãe e neném de @grifeuniao 😍
Dalam lelahnya dia selalu memastikanmu sudah tidur nyenyak. Dia selalu terbangun ketika kamu menangis. Untuk membuatmu tertidur, ia melakukan apapun sebisanya, mulai dari membuatkanmu susu hingga menyanyi untukmu. Lengannya mungkin akan sangat lelah karena selalu menggendong kamu, punggungnya juga sangat sakit, tapi dia tidak akan pernah melepaskanmu,.. Ia akan merasa sangat terluka ketika melihat kamu menangis. Baginya tidak ada suara sesedih tangisanmu, atau tidak ada yang lebih mengerikan daripada air mata yang jatuh ke pipimu. Dia mengerahkan semua yang ia bisa untuk menghentikanmu menangis. Hatinya akan merasa hancur berkeping-keping setiap kali melihatmu menangis.
Dia akan selalu mengutamakanmu. Dia selalu mencoba untuk memenuhi semua kebutuhanmu dibandingkan kebutuhan dirinya sendiri. Dia akan menghabiskan sepanjang harinya untuk memenuhi kebutuhan kamu, dan pada akhirnya, ia tidak akan memiliki energi untuk mempersiapkan semua kebutuhannya. Dan di hari berikutnya, dia akan bangun dan melakukannya lagi, karena kamu sangat berarti untuknya.

Happy belated to my mother dearest. She's the reason why I'm so hard headed, but headstrong. Also the motivation to why I left my day job to follow my passion, make something of myself, and be happy. Everything I strive to be is so she can wake up and only have to worry about what she's going to do that day.
Leaving bright and early tomorrow morning to take my handsome man to see his grandparents and auntie in Michigan. It's going to be a long three weeks without this little stinker but I know he'll be having fun! I'm going to miss my cuddle butt so much 😩❤️ #getlikegray
❤️One of the most beautiful bonds you’ll ever see. She protects her prince, teaching him how to love, watching him grow into something promising. He holds on to her every word, because to him, no one else is more important than mommy. He wants for nothing, because she melts when he calls her name, cries when he’s hurt, or simply just says “I love you”. No matter how old he gets, he is her baby, and he will always have mom on his mind.
