Oh hey! What’s up? How are you? It’s been too long since I’ve posted and I feel really bad about it.
Children are exactly where they need to be. Let me say it again. 🗣Children are exactly where they need to be. 🗣
As homeschoolers, we are charged with not only leading and guarding their hearts and minds, but with honoring the unique stages they’re in. I see well-meaning mamas want to know what curriculum they should be using for their two year old, asking why their five year old isn’t reading or simply sitting still for more than 2 minutes for a lesson, or why their child is unmotivated or straight up indignant towards school time. 🤔
The narrative of “the earlier, the better” reins supreme in our society. The sooner your child can read, the better. The faster they can memorize this or that, the more ahead they’ll be. But, what about burnout and killing curiosity? What happens when a child who was forced to learn on someone else’s schedule becomes an adult? Will they want to continue learning, solve complex problems, or think outside the box? If we look around, I think we know the answer. The rush and push to teach before a child are ready is pointless. A child knows when they’re ready to learn something, which makes the learning process much easier, richer, and lasting. Isn’t that the point of all of this?
Education is a lifelong journey, and it’s our job to create a childhood that nurtures it. Trust them, mamas. They’ll show you when to push, when to pull back, and when to press pause. And you’ll be more than willing to meet them where they are because you will know (not hope) that they will “get it” in time. They will. I can attest to it. It may be hard to see it right now, but keep laying that foundation. Those seeds will produce fruit. Promise.
"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward"
And if you can't crawl, just lay in bed and point in the right direction!
Happy Martin Luther King Jr's day!
Hoy hemos pasado la tarde en el cine viendo Glass, ha sido una peli bastante mindfuck pero el final nos ha encantado 😱🎥🍿.
Mil gracias a @yelmo_cines
por invitarnos y dejarnos elegir peli, ha sido genial 💖🤗.
Came home and was child free for approximately 40 minutes.
Did I want to sit on the couch? You bet.
Did I want to read my book? Yep!
Did I want to have a cup of coffee and watch FRIENDS? Duh!
Did I want to spend 30 of my 40 minutes working out? NOPE.
Am I glad that I chose workout? Yes!! Because no matter how tired, lazy, out of shape, or drained I feel working out does so much for my mental, physical and emotional health.
I’ve got big dreams.
I’ve got a 16 month old to chase.
I’ve got a family that needs to see me taking care of myself.
Those are my whys! What are yours?
Hope y’all aren’t sick of this dress yet because I’m in love ⚡️
How do YOU get photo ready? 🤩 #ad
I am so excited to be partnering with @revlon
on today’s blog post to tell you all about their brand new foundation and concealer that will help make sure you’re ready for your close-up at any moment. These products have a natural finish so can put your best face forward. The link is in my stories if you’d like to check it out! #RevlonPhotoReadyatRA #collectivebias
A growing number of tools will allow you to manage multiple social media accounts, with just a few clicks. Pay particular attention to publishing content during the times you are not online, for around the clock marketing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some examples of social media automation tools are:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tailwind for Pinterest and Instagram - I use Tailwind religiously for all my blogs and would be lost without it⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Co-Schedule - you can try out a 14-day free trial with no credit card to see if you like it⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Smarterqueue - another one you can try out for 14 days with no credit card⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Planoly for Instagram - they have a free plan (I use this) and if you have an Instagram business account you can auto post your photos so you can set it and forget it. Boom!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
IFTTT (if this, then that) - a free app that lets you decide how your apps work together. For example, you can set it up so that every time you post on Instagram it posts a photo on your Facebook page and Twitter account. Instead of just the link that you normally get when you share your Instagram photos to Twitter, this app will make a new post with the photo included so everyone sees your photo and not just the link.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What tools do you use?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Never forget to take care of yourself and your body. After all, it's the only body we get!
Can I just get some encouragement for posting a mirror selfie here? Y’all the art of a mirror selfie is beyond me but I gave it a shot because this outfit is what I’m loving most today ☆ ☆ ☆
I’ve been loving pink sweaters lately & got this one from Aerie - perfect for my nieces Barbie birthday party next weekend and Valentine’s day 🎀💕
But most importantly, THESE JEANS! Y’all I have never owned a pair of jeans that I love this much. I got these Free People jeans for less than $40 (originally $78!!) I love them so much I bought the black pair & have them waiting for me to pick up at Macy’s 😍😍😍
Anyways, happy Wednesday loves!

How do you take care of yourself? Is there a specific day you dedicate to your "I" time? .
If you know me, you know that I love to take baths! It's how I relax, unwind and detox my mind, body and soul. I usually like to take a 20 min @epsom_salt
bath in the day once a week... like today or on a friday when nobody is home. There's a happiness that comes over me when I know that I can blast #corrinebaileyrae
2006 album and sing along to it while soaking away the toxins I've acquired from the weekend. If I don't have music playing, I like to read a few pages from my fave book. Right now I'm reading NOT TAUGHT by Jim Keenan. If you haven't heard of it, go grab a copy for yourself right now. You can Thank me later. xxA 💋.

De las veces que hemos fallado.
De las veces que hemos reído.
Pero de las muchas otras veces sin contar, risas y apoyo incondicional tanto cerca como lejos.
Duramos un tiempo sin hablarnos, sin saber del uno y del otro, pero aquí estamos de nuevo, fortaleciendo esta amistad de años y de muchos momentos agradables, porque un mejor amigo, es aquel que a pesar de todos los obstaculos, te tiende la mano y no te suelta, pase lo que pase🙏😍
Cuiden aquellas amistades que valen oro, fortalezcan lo que tengan que fortalecer, aprecien los buenos y malos momentos, porque es aprendizaje del bueno🍃☄
Nunca pudiera cambiar a mi mejor amigo por nada del mundo, más bien le daría las alas para que vuele alto y disfrute de la aventuras, experiencias y risas en abundancia❤..
El tiempo te dirá y te demostrara, quienes son tus verdaderos amigos y quienes no, al igual que tu verdadera familia, así que esta pendiente y observa muy bien...
Best Friend Forever👬❤

In the greatest city in the world🌟
When I was a kid, I used to hate going to New York City! I know, it sounds crazy, right? But it’s true! I would always only see Times Square when I was there so I thought the whole city was gross and crowded. But I turned out to be so wrong! When I did a film program with the @newyorkfilmacademy
I saw a whole new part of the city. Now it’s one of my favorite places in the world! •
: anyone in love with New York City?!🍎
I asked you guys yesterday if you like when I post social media tips I got 100% on my poll. I’m sure you have noticed that I post about 2-3 times a day. With instagram sometimes not everyone you follow can see your post if you pay attention to your numbers on your Instagram (business) account you can see what times of the day your followers are more active + what post do the best. I create my content based on what my followers seem to like the most. .
Also my top City right now is Los Angeles I can’t express how excited I am that my favorite place is in my #1
spot right now.

Apie TRX2 vitaminus girdėjau labai daug gerų atsiliepimų ir pagaliau gavau progą išbandyti juos pati! Beveik baigiau gerti pirmą pakuotę, o rezultatas jau dabar yra akivaizdus - plaukai atsigavo ir tapo žvilgantys, sveikesni. Jau kurį laiką plaukų išvaizdą bandžiau gerinti įvairiomis kaukėmis, bet panaudojusi TRX2 supratau, kad svarbiausia plaukus maitinti iš vidaus, tada pasiekiamas geriausias rezultatas! Tikrai drąsiai rekomenduoju. Ačiū @biovaistine.lt
