- am I the only one bothered by this?! please someone call Cocomelon 🚌👶🏻3.4M2.89%6 months agoHERE’S MY ANSWER 👇🏼 by absolutely no means am I a marriage expert. BUT, despite all the stressful obstacles we face as a couple (like my husband’s demanding job or having 4 kids in under 4 years), we still both get butterflies when one of us walks in the door. so how we do we keep that proverbial flame alive? 🦋🔥 I’ve given this a lot of thought, because we’re so physically and mentally exhausted that our sex life isn’t our #1 priority right now and after a long day, we’re not sitting down and cuddling on the couch. I said it! we’re not. we’re usually half watching a show together while we both zone out on our phones. and yes, we have date nights every saturday. and that’s super helpful. totally. and I’m so grateful for that time. but what really moves the needle in our deep love for each other isn’t the date nights or the sex (when we find time to have it 🙈.) it’s the little things. it’s the thoughtful actions that keep us going. examples are like this: ❤️ tonight my husband has a late work dinner and he’ll wake up exhausted (and likely a little hungover 🤣), so I programmed the coffee pot for him so when he wakes up, he has a fresh cup of coffee waiting for him to ease him into our hectic mornings. ❤️ it’s making the bed when he’s running late (because I couldn’t care less about bed making, but it’s a non-negotiable for him.) ❤️ it’s buying his favorite tortilla chips on fridays so he has them to munch on for the weekend. it’s these tiny actions that have the biggest impact on our marriage and with how much pressure is on us as parents raising 4 tiny humans and trying to keep it all together all the time, a little gesture goes a huge way. and frankly…. it sometimes takes mere minutes to do. and even though I was exhausted after a brutal evening with the kids tonight, I did it. ☕️ and tomorrow, when he wakes up and smells coffee, he’ll smile and hug me, go downstairs, pour us our coffees, bring them upstairs to sip while we get ready and wrangle the kids, and it sets the tone for OUR day. ✨ I’d love to here what you think and if you’d like to see more conversations like this on here 🥰2.7M1.53%5 months agoLESS MESS SENSORY BIN HACK for LITTLE KIDS 💡 I’m a mom of four kids 👦🏻👧🏻👶🏻👶🏻 and while I like to get creative with activities, I find myself making this same cereal sensory bin over and over again - and all of my kids love it. ❤️ BUT over the years, I’ve gotten smarter. 🤓 Instead of just giving them the bin, I first place packing tape on the bottom of the bins to stick them to the table. Now, this isn’t heavy duty adhesion here, but it gets the job done. Once they realize they can pull it off, it’s game over, but to be honest, they have so much fun with this simple sensory bin, they rarely try to. 👏🏼 You can put tape all over or just a few pieces, depending on your kid. For my twins, I use a lot of tape - they’re in that mischievous, tests everything stage. 😫 For my 3 and 5 year old, just a little bit of tape to help them so they don’t accidentally hit the bin with their elbow and cereal goes flying. I just place the bins down on the table and push down to secure the tape as much as possible. 💪🏼 You can totally make this into a snacktime thing, but I just use cereal I know they like that gets them excited to play. And I honestly use whatever tools or scoopers I have around the house, maybe a little car, dino or doll if I’m feeling cool - and if I don’t have much time, I’ll just throw in a paper cup and a spoon and they STILL love it. 🦖🚗 Hope your littles love it too - and you win yourself 10 minutes of peace!

I’d dread filling those post school hours so much that I was spending money on so many after after school activities to keep them “constructively entertained” or busy so that I wouldn’t have to come up with games, play on the floor for hours, and basically drop all of own personal responsibilities (for work, the house, myself - whatever!) to focus 100% on them and making sure they were occupied. what I didn’t know is that this was all backfiring because what happened was that my kids wanted me more. they weren’t spending quality time with me (because they were at sports classes, art classes etc) and they craved it tenfold when they got home. so behaviorally they were a mess, fighting for my attention and finding themselves frustrated and they didn’t know why. so when I’d go to try to do something (like send out an email or fold the laundry) they’d be screaming and yelling and “acting out,” basically showing negative behavior for attention. and I felt terrible. I thought I was “enriching” them with activities while I’d get time to do what I had to do in a day. we both win, right? then I read Hunt, Gather, Parent and everything changed. I started “doing what I had to do in a day” WITH my kids instead of busying them so I could do those things alone. it was transformative. I started with easy tasks like cooking dinner, grocery shopping, and cleaning. I remember the first post-dinner evening after spending 3:30-6pm at the house together (prepping & cooking dinner, setting the table, loading the dishwasher and wiping down the counters.) they walked over to their toys and started playing nicely together. and they didn’t even look for me for an HOUR! it was a breakthrough moment for me. I realized that my kids wanted to be doing important things with me. they wanted me to give them responsibility. and this whole time I thought that quality time = child-focused games, toy play, etc. 🤯 PS- I wrote a blog post about this! just search “Hunt Gather Parent” on the blog. and let me know in the comments if you’d like to hear more about this journey 👇🏼2.3M0.22%a month ago
