Our founder @zahraikassam was recently on the @Motherly podcast. She spoke about raising children and her passion for Montessori.⁣ 🎧✨ ⁣ 👶💛"I think that if we can raise our children in this way, they will grow into the best version of themselves. They will find the thing in the world that is their purpose, that they're meant to be doing… and if we look around and every individual is the best version of themselves – making their best contribution to the world – I think that naturally will bring about peace in our interactions because people will be happier."⁣ ⁣ 🚶‍♀️We've shared a link in our bio in case you're looking for a good listen for your neighborhood walk!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #Montessori #WiseWords #StayAtHome #StayingAtHome #SafeAtHome #RaisingChildren #MontessoriFromBirth #ChildDevelopment #BabyDevelopment #SustainableToys #LetThemBeLittle #EarlyChildhoodEducation #PlayToLearn #ToddlerLife #Toddlers #MomentsLikeThis #MontessoirInspo #MomWin #MontessoriMom #Toddlers_Of_Instagram #ToddlersOfInstagram #IG_Motherhood⁣ #MindfulMoments

When I started Coaching, I didn’t do it to quit my job, be a stay at home mom or make millions — that stuff was flat out crazy to me AND it seemed fake and unrealistic anyways! . . All I wanted was to be able to buy something when I wanted without having to ask for my husband’s permission, blessing or risk feeling guilty about it later. . . Living paycheck to paycheck friggen SUCKS… that stress is so friggen heavy! . . But today, I got to splurge on a Playkit that we didn’t “need” simply because I wanted to and because I thought it was something that Jack and I could do together during the week days. . . This my friends is what FREEDOM means to me, and oftentimes its the small wins like these that truly matter MOST. . . . . . #jackmosakowski #loveverybaby #lovevery #toddlermommy #toddlerplaykit #playkit #babyplaykit #playgym #loveveryplaykit #thebabbler #1yearold #toddlerproblems #toddlerlife #workfromhomemom

Tummy time! Does your little babe love or hate it?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are some of our tried and true tips 🙌⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉Start small. Do two minutes of tummy time, at a time. Then slowly increase it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉Have engaging toys they can look at and touch (we can help with this! 😉)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉Get on the floor with them! This is new and scary and seeing your smiling face reassures them that all is good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some babies love tummy time, others hate it.
