“Mommy, match with me!” Nathan said after I picked out his clothes. Dressing in coordinating looks was something I thought only moms and daughters could do, so when I found out I was carrying 2 boys, I had to let go of my pink and red outfit ideas and embrace other colors to style my sons in. Turns out, it helped me to expand my own palette and venture into other colorful territory that was new to me. I’ve been able to style us together through prints like stripes, wearing similar shoes like Vans and Converse, and play up my feminine looks against the boys’ more rugged outfits. What do you think – did we pull off our coordinating looks? #mommyandmefashion #mommyandmeoutfit #mommyandson #mothersonbond #mothersonbond #acolorstory #colorfulmotherhood #momswithstyle #colorventures #outfitpop #colorcrush #colorhunters #ootdkids #momsofboys #colorlove #myunicornlife #livecolorfully #vans #primark #njmom #nycmom #ihavethisthingwithcolor #targetstyle

Nothing like a post-music class smile 😁

𝗪𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐚 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐌𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐜 𝐌𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐠𝐚𝐥𝐬 𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐥 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐜𝐡. 🎼 ⁣ ⁣ We tried the holiday Jingle Jam (a two week session, the perfect test run for her introverted mother) and #EvaMaeWhovier wouldn’t stop talking about it. Now she proudly tells anyone who will listen “I GO TO MUSIC CLASS!” and she beams like a ray of sunshine for hours, before class and after.⁣ ⁣ The Antisocial Annie in me dreaded the commitment of taking her somewhere with any regularity and having to talk to other moms and kids (don’t @ me, I’m all talked out by 8am every day). BUT, music has been the perfect fit for us. I really just get to watch her be cute and have fun. ⁣ ⁣ I had to talk myself into this class, but I’m so glad we’re doing it. I don’t know if she’ll ever remember that we did this together, just the two of us, but I’ll always remember the way she giggles during the songs, asks me “now what!?” after each song is over, and glows just talking about her teacher. And considering that 1:1 time with any of my babies is about to become even more rare and precious, it’s really a win for both of us.⁣ ⁣ What’s your favorite thing to do with your kids away from home? #makinmemories

When you meet someone in person and realize they’re way taller than you thought 😯

To Infinity and Beyond Of course we all love Toy Story and our kids inevitably go through the Toy Story phase, but this line “To infinity and beyond” has a deep sentiment that is so real for most of us as parents. Our good friend shared her story of how every night she tells her children she loves them “to infinity and beyond” and it made me think about what I say to Mira every night or everyday. It’s that one thing we remember as we go through life that our parents would say and maybe we’d say it back, and it’s an exchange that most days you don’t even think about it just is. It’s the idea of how deep and true the love between a parent and child can be. I realized mine is “I love you, Evermore”. We have a really awesome book called Edgar Gets Ready For Bed. It’s a Babylit book inspired by Edgar Allan Poe. He’s a kid who basically is doing everything in his power not to go to bed and when asked to do something by his mother, he replies “Nevermore”. At the end after all of his shenanigans he asks his mother if she still loves him and she says, “Yes, I love you Evermore.” I started saying it to Mira, “Mommy loves you Evermore.” And she started saying it back. I love it. It’s amazing how a few words really can mean so much 💗 Do you have a special saying with your child? #evermore #babylit #toystory #lego #legostore #buzzlightyear #edgarallanpoe #theraven #disneyfamily #toinfinityandbeyond #njmom #njfamilyblogger #discoverunder5k @babylitbooks @disneysprings @toystory @lego
