As if I didn’t already feel like the shittest mum ever....this happened! . The lovely black eye is a result of Grayson spitting on the laminate floor then putting his hand in it and face planting the bottom of his car walker 🙈😭 . . #badmum#accidentchild#niceblackeyekid#shittestmumever
👇 Stop your Child's Misbehaviour Triggering You >>> ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌱 Step 4. Accept your Qadr - its good and its BAD - This is part of our emaan! The 6th pillar of faith to be exact. To heal from the emotions and the hidden trauma, you need to accept that this was Allah's plan for you. By putting your finger on the pain, accepting it and healing from it, you'll be using this 'bad' qadr to power your future. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌱 Step 5. Understand why it happened - The fact is, hidden childhood trauma is a cycle. Everyone has hidden trauma, unmet needs, big & small. We're all hurting in some way. And therefore, we will always behave in ways that reflect that. Understand that your parents and caregivers, even the bullies and oppressors, and even the abusers (💔)in your life, had unresolved issues & unmet needs to varying degress. As for your parents, I believe most parents tried their best, and that is enough for Allah and so should be enough for us. Think about their circumstances, their upbringings & experiences. Did they have enough support or nurturing? May Allah reward them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌱 Step 6. Let it go - Despite the cliche sound of this step, having analysed, discovered, felt, accepted and understand the root of your triggers, you now must let the pain and trauma go. It's fulfilled its purpose. Understand, forgive and let it go. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌱 Step 7. Move forward empowered - Ultimately this is about taking action, being proactive and choosing to be happy, choosing to grow - being the change. You'll be better able to deal with not only your family problems but also your parenting triggers now. The moaning, power struggles, crying and mess-making will be so much easier to deal with.

BAKING TOGETHER AS A QUALITY TIME Yesterday was a beautiful evening🌈. We baked together a tart with whatever ingredients we had in the fridge... one of them were cranberries, as we had not enough apples at hand. It was completely unplanned and spontaneous🔥🔥🔥. The end result was so tasty and delicious and we enjoyed this beautiful time of tasting this creation together as a family ...it was like celebrating a moment without a particular reason, yet still delightful. We love to bake together as a quality time and to experiment with various, new ingredients. Apart from spending quality time together it teaches my children that it's possible to create something beautiful and tasty even, if not all ingredients are available at the time. It teaches them about resourcefulness and coming up with alternative solutions. What's your favourite way to spend quality time together during the week? How do you connect with each other in evening time?
THE SAD FACE Do you ever feel you made the wrong decision? At the moment William says he doesn’t want go school. This morning he said he spends too much time in school, I couldn’t agree more. This make me sad thinking did I make the wrong decision as he is only 3. But unlike most parents I still see William whilst at school and he seems happy. So I am hoping he just says this as he’s tired and it’s early. 🧡
M O T H E R H O O D 💙 It’s hard to find a way to symbolise this crazy time in our lives, but Anja from @immeryours_keepsake_art has done it so beautifully. When I told Jeremy I wanted to send the last of my breastmilk across the country to have a ring made, I think he thought I was nuts,🙈 I just couldn’t bring myself to throw it away. But today, this beautiful, one of a kind keepsake finally arrived, and I was just blown away. For me, this is a way to freeze a moment in time, a way to celebrate my connection and journey with my two blue eyed babies, and the one we never got to meet. 💕 Whether this sort of thing is your cup of tea or not, you’ve got to admit, the talented Anja has done an incredible job and I’m so grateful! 🙏 #keepsakering#breastmilkjewellery#motherhoodjourney#infantloss#immeryours
