Pick Me Up. I wake and go through a version of @hal_elrod
's morning routine. It ends with a @garyvee
clip telling me that "40 is just half time!!!" Thats the only motivation I need today to take some massive action. My eldest scoffs his coco pops in record time and we beat the morning schoolrun rush. Then, one of my favourite parts of the morning, double micchiato for me and a babychino and marshmallow for him. My little pick me up. Time seems to stop and I connect with my 4 year old by simply conversing. He throws in his standard question, "Dadda who's going to pick me up". I respond "Me Dee". After playing a bit of Dino King in the playground and successfully dropping him to his classroom, his question lingers in my mind. And I think, "I will pick you up today and tomorrow. I will pick you up when you are lost. I will pick you up when you feel alone. I will pick you up when you fall, I will pick you up when you are down and I will pick you up everyday after". I park up in our drive back at home. I open the door and see her holding our youngest who is still a bit under the weather. I give him and her a kiss and say, "Here, let me pick him up".
My wife’s better then yours. 6th wedding anniversary tomorrow and apparently traditional gifts is Iron. So she thought this one out - iron man socks, jocks and movie and a good iron steak cooked in my new cast iron pan. Wtf tho - she says it’s not a competition probably because we both know she would win each time 😂 @mumma_wilde

EXAMPLES OF GAMES
so yesterday we said playing games with children are very good for holistic child development and we listed some benefits(refer to the post)
A few people reached out for some examples and teacher Dora @theodoraayeni
our lead trainer came to the rescue with a few of her favorite games.
Remember games must be age and developmentally appropriate
So there u have it in the picture slide. Spy teacher Dora looking all pretty as she heads off for a session.
Let's do this together people. Change the world one child at a time by empowering the adults who work with them.
Have a great day! Today is Friday no school tomorrow... Shalalala

If we could only give one suggestion to put on top of your Christmas wishlist, this would be it 😜⠀
Did you know that this week is PANDA week?
This topic is such an important one and one very close to my heart 💙 I am a statistic in the 1 in 5 women who have experienced perinatal depression and anxiety. I had a pretty smooth sailing pregnancy however the anxiety completely took over my life for the whole 10 months and unfortunately it didn't stop when my son was born. It actually got worse and continued till I decided to seek some help and support 17 months later.
would like to invite the Instagram community in creating awareness and funding for this wonderful foundation @pandanational.
Please head over to @auctionforpanda
will be hosting an auction with 100% of proceeds going to @pandanational
Remember it is ok to not be ok 💛

Oh y’all thought I was done! I’m just getting started #Results
who’s next?! DM me or comment “ME”
Aaron and I spent the morning talking about our Mens Health Meet Up for Movember next weekend. Instead of discussing over coffee, we chose the mat. We both have an outstanding talk planned covering many foundational aspects of men's health that have become forgotten. It would be a pleasure to have you join us for the day. More info on our event FB page.
We've ditched the cow in favour of nutty vegan milks this week. We've tried three flavours but Almond seems to be the winner with the boys. I think we'll stick with the swap! We're not vegan but we've always found it a little strange that we feed the kids milk from a different species 🤷🏼♂️ Anybody else moving away from dairy? (This isn't an ad, btw 🤣) 🐂
Up next are requests for ages 2 to 3. .
As you can see we have two series of books because well, we all know how much toddlers like repetition 😂
First up are three brilliant little empowering books: I Know A Lot, I Am So Brave and I Can Do It Myself. The illustrations are so fantastically colourful and the text helps toddlers celebrate their wins, even seemingly small ones.
Little Oink is a cute, funny story about a pig who wants to keep his room tidy but his parents won’t let him. .
Specs for Rex is a gorgeously illustrated book about Rex who doesn’t like his specs until they help him win at school. .
ABC Mindful Me is a beautiful hardback book which introduces kids to mindfulness. .
Finally, the Mr Panda books are always funny and carry a positive message. I have a soft spot for Mr Panda. He says very little but humour doesn’t always have to be upfront 😂
All these books are available in the kids books section of the website x

As I lay here basking in the sun with my love on our “marriage retreat” I look over at Nate (swipe left next picture ) and realize we are both reading “parenting books.” One thing is for certain, even though having kids is challenging and fun all in one hot second, we believe that a strong marriage is the number one thing our children need first. . Even though we are on our “marriage retreat” we are still focused on our babies and how we can become better for them. Comment below on one of your favorite parenting books.
