💖💙❤️ I haven’t done this in a while but, this is me and my little tribe... Emilia is 4, my eldest blue eyed baby born in Shanghai, she breastfed for 2.5 years until she decided that her Foxy was enough to get to sleep at night. George is almost 2 and such a lovely boy, he is severely allergic to egg and had a rough old ride in the early days with eczema/tongue tie etc as we tried to figure it all out. He is still feeding and I can’t see him ever wanting to end our journey 🤣
My name is Laura... I have danced pretty much my whole life; as well as being a Mummy, I’m a Royal Academy of Dance ballet teacher. I also studied Dance at university and have run successful dance studios in both England & China. Breastfeeding is a HUGE part of my life, im obsessed 🤣! When I had my daughter in Shanghai, I wasn’t sure about breastfeeding, I didn’t know anyone personally who had breastfed but I wanted to give it a go. I taught myself the ‘latch position’ by watching you tube videos over and over... both of my children suffered with awful reflux so we spent HOURS feeding...I’m very stubborn and nutrition is also super important to me so through all the difficult times, we stuck with it, even with many people telling me I was crazy and not thinking about myself! (I’m a Mum, we never think about ourselves!!!).
Breastfeeding is a long journey... the road can be bumpy but, if you have a goal you can achieve whatever you’ve set out to do. I started this page because I love helping people and if I can help just one person with their own journey, by offering support and guidance... that is enough for me. Well done wonderful Mummas, you’re all amazing, thank you so much for following me and my babies on this lovely little journey of ours💖😘😍🌈
Tomorrow Is Too Late. -
Fates ride on little moments.
Outcomes of entire lives can rest
on the seemingly miniscule.
Fresh from another of her parent's brawls
The little girl shuffles to school.
She needs a sign today
that the world is a safe place,
something better awaits.
This one afternoon in her life
could turn her around,
steer her through the minefields.
A comforting word,
a warm glance her way,
the right things happening
at just the right time.
You know this little girl: Watch for her:
The window is narrow.
But you are powerful.
She is waiting
for the smallest,
the sweetest of mercies
to be saved. -

Joy is back with her pals. We are so glad all the #feelings are back together. It’s hard to be a whole person who makes conscious and sound decisions if any of the feelings are missing.
The #brain needs all the feelings, sensory information, memories, and ideas to decide how to behave.
Any feelings you’ve lost? Any feeling you’re asking your #child to loose?
Please find them again. It helps to build better behavior and great problem solving.

What a FUN book!!
This hilarious interactive book will have everyone giggling gleefully! Young readers help to tell the story by responding to simple verbal or visual cues – the perfect read aloud and fun for the whole family.
A girl child is the symbol of the pure basic creative force according to hindu philosophy. Thus, Nine young girls representing the nine forms of Goddess Durga (Navadurga) are worshiped on Durga maha ashtami.
It is a custom to wash the feet of these nine young girls as a mark of respect for the Goddess and then offer new clothes as gifts by the devotee. Kanya puja as a part of Devi worship is to recognize the feminine power vested in the girl child and to give them as much importance in the social fabric as the so-called heir apparents (boys) who are otherwise known to be pampered in an average household.
Scriptures say, if one is desirous of acquiring knowledge then he should worship a Brahmin girl child. If he is desirous of acquiring power, then he should worship a Kshatriya-girl child. Similarly if he is desirous of acquiring wealth and prosperity, then a girl child belonging to a Vaishya family should be worshipped by him. There is also a ritual purification and chanting of mantras. She is made to sit on a special pedestal. She is worshiped by offering ‘akshat‘ (rice grains) and by burning incense sticks. She is worshipped because, according to the philosophy of ‘Striyah Samastastava Devi Bhedah’, women symbolize Mahamaya (The goddess Durga). Even among these a girl child is considered to be the purest, because of her innocence.
Devi is essentially a worship of the great feminine. In a kanya the great feminine potential is at its peak. A female child is considered the most auspicious, most jagrat, and the most clear minded and clear souled individual. While invoking the parashakti in such a form, the purity of mind body and spirits is fulfilled by a girl child. Such a female child is indeed Devi, who in her later life takes the roles of Parvati as a wife and mother, Lakshmi as a housewife, Saraswati as the first guru of her children, Durga as the destroyer of all obstacles for her family, Annapurna as the food provider through her cooking, Kali as the punisher to bring the members of the family on the right track. 🌺💖❤️🌷 Divine Love and Blessings to all 🌷💖🌸❤️❤️🌷🌸❤️🌷🌿💖🌿🌸🌷🍃🌷🌿💖❤️

Michele Harmon, the mom of a little girl with Down syndrome, shares why her daughter is “the closest thing to an angel.” She writes:
“This child they told me would be so unworthy of life, such a burden, has defied all predictions...She continues to touch people with her sweetness and surprise them with her ability. Ciarra is a little girl who has been the best teacher that I can ever imagine having. She is a joy like no other.
She seems to have a way with people that I have never seen before. I wonder if it is her cheerfulness or her simple joy in everything.”
