Sometimes going to a pumpkin patch is super fun. Sometimes it feels like it’s 100 degrees, your baby eats more corn kernels and hay than you’d like to admit, and your 4 year old tells you he didn’t have any fun on the way out. 🙄 Top it off with no one but mom smiling for the camera 😂 Thanks @canary_jane and @aleighjoymoore for sticking it out with us. This mom had fun at least seeing her friends 😉💛 #jakerspumpkinpatch
I’m so saddened to see all of my friends “me too” posts. It is hard to hear that the majority of my friends have had these things happen to them. I am blessed to have never had such an experience but it has me thinking, how am I supposed to protect my daughter from something happening to her? The reality is, I can’t. What I can do is teach her her worth. I can let her know that no matter how the world views her, she is far more valuable than that. I can teach her that her body is not an object and it should never be treated as such. I can remind her over and over that she is a daughter of God and has eternal goals she can reach for and that working towards them in this life will bring her true joy. I can teach my son how to treat women with respect and love. I can teach him about healthy sex instead of sweeping it under a mat. I can teach him that the things he’ll most likely see on tv or online are not reality and are not healthy to ever expect in a real relationship. All of these things can be taught to both of my children. I can also teach them to defend themselves and to speak out if they ever are in a compromising situation. Teach that what is appropriate and what is not. Most importantly I show my children that they are loved and important through example and by reminding them daily. I know my children are still young and I know it’s hard to have these conversations but I hope I will do my best to raise them in a way they will love and respect others in all aspects. I hope you will too. #metoo
Worst idea ever: put your 10 month old that is teething in a corn pit. 😂 She wouldn’t stop trying to shove mouthfuls of kernals her mouth 😓 BUT despite that, we had so much fun with @canary_jane tonight at the #autumnkidsjamboree 💛 Thanks for putting on some awesome family friendly events girl!
Someone fell asleep as a bear and it’s basically the cutest thing ever 😍 #10monthsold #fionafae
