Earliest memories ..What’s yours? I think this is Esmé’s earliest memory .. Whenever she sees images of Venice wether on a billboard, or a magazine she always says “we did that” .. This was our honeymoon.. I couldn’t bring myself to leave her at home .. So it kind of became a family moon 😂.. and the whole time Shaun and I said we should have just went on our own .. but looking back now it’s so sweet that she remembers this 💜

R U C O L A I J S: “papa, mama! Dit is rucola-ijs! Nou, eigenlijk weet ik niet wat het is..” mama proeft even, het is citroen-ijs, maar rucola-ijs klinkt echt veel leuker! #diehoudenweerin#grapjas#zoeendagdus
We often want to know why our kids are so upset by seemingly little things. These are only pretexts to cleanse what is stored beneath. When we start to ask ‘why’ they are upset or give reasons or solutions to the situation. We actually bring be cleansing process to a halt! When we slow down remind ourselves that our children are good and know what to do we can then just listen without rushing in. By being present with very little words you allow the feelings to bubble up to the surface and heal. I often think of it like if they were sick and vomiting. In the midst of it you wouldn’t ask why are you vomiting or say here eat this it will help. Your first point of call would be to go over beside them with the bucket and show them you are there. Rub their back, tell them it’s ok sweetie I’m here and then only once they settled would you then offer something small ‘would you like some water?’ Try this approach the next time you are in the midst of their emotional release. No matter their age you can go to them, make contact, maybe rub their back or just sit beside them and say only a few words like ‘I’m here sweetie’ and listen to what comes up and see what happens next ❤️❤️

These are the days I want to hold onto forever. The days where you sleep with your favorite toy car and never let it out of your sight the moment you open your eyes. The days where all you want is mama, all damn day long. The days where trips to the grocery store, rocks, spider-man and your dad chasing after you completely light you up. The days where you find comfort in my arms and I find comfort in your wholehearted love. You’ll never understand how much my broken pieces needed you. These are the days. .

Who is your favourite super-hero- Has it changed since you were a child? A fascination with the concept of super-powers and their potential to shape our world for better or worse often accompanies us as children and adults. So often in life, we feel powerless, stuck and a little small. Superheroes offer this fantasy of that changing through a character, the classic tale of the impossible becoming possible. This theme of good vs evil pops up both in child and adult versions of superhero stories, the characters offering an opportunity to consider moral conflicts and complexities and some of the bigger themes of life. Superheroes are one of my favourite themes to bring into art making, it can be stretched and tugged at to explore identity, hope and moral compass. Perfect for little hearts that are learning.
