Mindful parenting

Mindful parenting
How to be in the moment as a parent when your mind still is racing, thinking about everything that has been keeping you busy. Being a Mindful parent isn’t easy! So Learn from your kids! They are experts in experiencing and enjoying the present… They know best! Stop overthinking everything and start living in the “NOW”

Last September we went on an unexpected adventure somewhere in the dunes near Zandvoort in Holland. The kids were laughing and running and playing from the moment we stepped out of the van… But for me, it really took me a while to let go of my constant train of thought, let go of my worries, plans, and huge todo list. Until I realized what I was doing to myself and them. I wasn’t really there with them. I was missing out on all the fun while I was too buzzy being an adult!

So in that moment, I thought:  That’s it! I’m done adulting!
And guess what!? I had the best day ever!

Having trouble living in the moment as a parent!? Jump in there with your kids and just allow yourself to fully embrace the fun!
Wo’s with me!?

Een grote zus zijn… ↠ Being a big sister

Read this blog in English

Waiting for a new little baby sister can take a terrible long time if you are 2 years old … Poor Haley! That waiting takes so long! Fortunately, big sister Miley is there to teach little (almost big) sister Haley how to be a good big sister.
I’m sorry, this video is in dutch only for he moment…

Two years ago, Miley had to wait so long for her little sister Haley, watch the video “Is the baby ready?”:

Wachten op een nieuw klein baby zusje kan verschrikkelijk lang duren als je 2 jaar oud bent… Arme Haley! Dat wachten duurt zo lang! Gelukkig is grote zus Miley daar om kleine (bijna grote) zus Haley te leren hoe je een goede grote zus moet zijn.

Twee jaar geleden heeft Miley namelijk zelf ook zoooo lang moeten wachten op haar kleine zusje Haley, bekijk hier de video “is de baby al klaar?”: https://youtu.be/iVHpFnGMfFs

Gelukkig is de versterking inmiddels hier!
Ons kleine meisje Quinn is geboren op 02-05-2017 en we zijn alle vier helemaal in de wolken!

Expecting Wild

So lets be honest… from the 38th week in pregnancy I’m not the most charming person around. I only fit my biggest maternity joggers and I can walk (or actually wobble) around for a max of 10 minutes before crashing. And i skip doing my hair or make-up all together. So, i’m not even trying any more. I accept the fact that i’m going to be a big fat clumsy whale until giving birth. And after that I will be a big jiggly and wobbly pudding mommy… but. The happiest and luckiest jiggly mom there can be!

We will be the proud parents of three beautiful little girls! And then it hit me… this will probably be the last time ever being pregnant. Never again will my belly be this big. Never again i will feel new life growing inside me! Never again i will get to wonder how she will look, how her character will be, how her voice will sound.

Especially the last couple of weeks of pregnancy are just too surreal… a full-term baby, ready to be born is moving around in there. But when? The waiting, expecting, wondering. It’s all such a precious experience.

So we decided to celebrate this moment and capture it’s beauty, power and romance in this photoshoot. Getting myself off the couch, out of my comfy stretchy pants and wide sweater… and in to the prettiest outfits I could still fit into. (Not much as you can see) Making an effort to do my hair and even put on a little bit of make-up!

And yes, i know… my belly is really huge. And I decided to be extremely proud of it! As i’m also going to be of my body after giving birth… so thankful for my 3 baby girls it has given me. I will be giving myself time and respect to heal while my body nourishes my two youngest daughters. The woman’s body is so strong and giving. Never thought I could do all of this… I’m in awe of all that is happening at this moment.  I’m just so thankful.

Today is the 29th… three days past my due date. But i’m not holding my breath. She is quite comfy in there. Im guessing she will present herself around 41 weeks. Just as her sisters did! In the meantime we are being patient and happy what every day brings us while we wait on the new little Wild child.
