That moment your mom gets the date wrong for your first ballet class. And even though you're all dressed up it only starts next month!!!! WOE IS US!!! So we compromised and she gets to wear the outfit today with cowgirl boots instead of ballet slippers. NATURALLY. Because, SNOW! #surprisedbymotherhood

EVERYTHING about her is my favorite. She makes flour all over every surface of my house worth it. #FirstTimeGirlMom #surprisedbymotherhood Also? We're totally open to craft suggestions. Because GIRLS AND CRAFTS. Oh my word! I had no idea.
firsttimegirlmom - surprisedbymotherhood -
choresandchatter : Made collage from magazine pics, glue pasta, cotton balls, beans, whatever in patterns...
diannakennedy : Girls? They can do crafts 24 hrs/day
francesnojd : Paint, colouring, beads, stickers, our crafts are basic, she can do what she wants I don't worry about it being "perfect" also she loves putting playdoh on her small frozen dolls, she saw a YouTube somehow of someone making playdoh dresses for those snap disney dolls - she's obsessed
aprillakatacao : Great picture-she's a doll!
hoosierhomemaker : I absolutely LOVE this picture! What a doll! Our 2 girls craft almost every single day. I have to say I love it! Their favorite are beads and pipe cleaners. Another big hit Here is sticking raw spaghetti noodles in playdough and putting Cherrios or fruit loops on them. Sometimes they even make a pattern with them! :)
danibakes : I follow the artful parent on Facebook. Lots of great ideas for boys and girls! We keep a tote full of supplies.
elizabethcravillion : Our go-to!
_daily_grace_ : Follow usπŸ™

Photo from the #servesouthafrica team this afternoon. Water shortages in Maubane mean the community is lining up at the water point you all helped build because it's a rare reliable water source. You guys!!! THANK YOU for being part of the solution for thirsty families in a very hot South African summer!! #TenDollarTribe

Kids back in school today. The house and I are slowly catching our breath. S l o w l y.
annieathome : Ah, the classic Instagram whilst dancing on the table! 😜 πŸ’œ
lisajobaker : @annieathome yea 😊 no other angle does the chaos justice.
earlgreygirl1 : @lisajobaker your past words have just been ringing in my ears during an unexpected after school drop-in from a mum and her daughter. Our dirty washing was piled on the quarry tiles in the kitchen and my table covered in paper mâché and every counter top groaning under the weight of a day's baking. We were a mess...but she averted her eyes and we talked motherhood over hot tea and who knew we had both been through ivf..and it was real community and real life and we connected and a new friendship may be born. THIS is motherhood at its best and I smiled and thought of you! #thankyousomuch #grace #themessisbeautiful #surprisedbymotherhood x
lisajobaker : @earlgreygirl1 and now you just made my whole day. Love those kinds of "messy" friendships. What a gift you were to her today!
earlgreygirl1 : @lisajobaker bless you. #thankful
steph77891 : @lisajobaker I love you so. It's real isn't it...
heatha100 : Lol true story

golbycircus : My husband got home tonight before we returned from a kiddo's activity and discovered that our home had been almost completely undone by the snow day. It looked great yesterday...
flowerpatchfarmgirl : Oh sister.

Snow day. Again. Survival of the fittest. Flour play 101. #surprisedbymotherhood
surprisedbymotherhood -
quietgraces : And flour mixed with oil in a 1:4 ratio to make moon sand. Thank me later ;-) That stuff kept 2 year old twins busy for 3 hours...
quietgraces : Er...4:1 ratio flour:oil
jacque_watkins : Stellar mothering you're doing!! Wish I could bring you Panera for lunch. :) xo
trishadavis23 : 😍
jenielliott : Thanks for that recipe, @quietgraces - we'll be using it for sure. Snowbound mamas, REPRESENT!
4mamabear : I'm going to tuck this one away for later! I've been feeling so down about the never ending cold and got myself motivated to post #bearfamilyboredombusters to keep sane. Flour pans to the rescue! Thanks!
kacoyle : Have you tried bowls of rice? They're fun too:) I mean a total nightmare to clean up, but if you've already conquered flour...
lisajobaker : @quietgraces - thank you! Will bust that out this afternoon

What if there was an alternative to Helicopter Parenting and Free Range Parenting? I call it "Wholeness Parenting." Especially necessary on the days you resent the fact that you have to talk to your kids about things like ISIS or porn. New blog post link in my profile.
ronniemarieb : Very timely for me and some issues I've been talking my kids through this week! Thank you for the tremendous, much-needed encouragement!
blitheblog : Love this. I was raised if I was struggling I didn't have enough faith. And so I always thought, because I struggled, I was doing something wrong. I now try really hard to explain to my children, as young as they are, some days are just hard but how Jesus helps us. So much. He helps us.
slatermaker : Thank you :) @lisajobaker
