For the most part, I can handle all the whining, bedtime stalling, and constant messes. But you know what gets on my nerves? The shirt pulling. . Every day, every small task involves shirt pulling. . And thanks to this, my shirts now have a distinctive look. A look ignored by the fashion elite cites … like, Ummm, Saskatoon (I don't know any elite fashion cities). . Anyway, the look is simple. A severely elongated neck hole, I think this is called a boat neck in some fashion circles. And the central body portion that has more stretched out fabric and folds than a pair of MC Hammers pants. . True story, I once accidentally went to an MC Hammer concert, and he looked right at me when I yelled out, "stop singing songs I don't know and sing Can't Touch This." #lifegoals . . . . . . #fatherlife #fathersofinstagram #celebratechildhood #childhoodeveryday #mychildren #childrenoftheworld #creartmood #creativegrammer #enter_imagination #launchdsigns #houseoftones #livelovecanada #canadalove #insidecanada  #albertacanada #canadalife  #canadagram #nikoncanada #ilovecanada #lovecanada #oh_canada_  #ohcanada #enjoycanada #igerscanada  #lifewithatoddler #toddlerproblems #toddlerfun

Mia is mini me. I can see how similar we are and it kinda scares me, lol! She is definitely set in her ways and is a force to be reckoned with. Although she was born at just 4 lbs, she caught up with her sister quickly. In Italian, we say she’s 'furba.’ She already knows what she should and should not be doing and is constantly testing me. I can see her mind working. Some times she chooses “wrong” just for the reaction and laughs her head off. That really scares me because alone they are showing me their brilliance, but together?? God help me LOL! Mia’s fierce determination becomes clearer every day and she is constantly amazing me with her budding personality, curiosity, social skills, and sense of humor. I don’t worry because it reinforces what I know: that she will easily hold her own one day. Although a little moodier than Stella, Mia’s a cuddle bug and no matter what she wants to be with her Papa. I’m so curious to see how their relationship will blossom and how they will be as women.

Remember back in the day, like yesterday, when everyone mentioned how certain toys distort how children view themselves? . Well, today I'd like to complain about how media, all types, distorts what it means to be a good parent. . I, for one, am not perfect, shocking, I know! . We live in a world that idealizes parents that pour over their child's every need. We also live in a world that criticizes parents for being too attentive to their children. . Parents are expected to put their children in every group, club, and shindig imaginable. But we ask them to make time for themselves. . Parents shame one another if their babies aren't on track for growth and development milestones. All the while, knowing children don't all fit the 50th percentile mark. . So today, let's celebrate the parents that don't do everything. However, they love their children. They drink too much coffee. And no, they don't want to make small talk with you at the park about how your child sleeps through the night. #suckabiscutbillysmom . . . . . . . #creartmood #creativegrammer #thegraphicspr0ject #launchdsigns #houseoftones #ohcanada #enjoycanada #igerscanada #creartmood #creativegrammer #manipulation #enter_imagination #ohcanada #enjoycanada #igerscanada #heybaby #chubbybaby #forevermybaby #loveyoubabygirl #mybeautifulbabygirl #sweetbabygirl #cutebabygirl
