Las fotos familiares a veces pueden convertirse en un compromiso agobiante, pero no con una mamá como la bloguera Dominique Davis, ella hace que todo sea mucho más divertido, adorable y original. Te compartimos algunas de sus fotografías familiares junto a sus dos pequeñas hijas, Penny y Amelia.
Por lo general las tres visten iguales
A repost, but it seems quite fitting considering the super-human strength that Penny unleashed on Wednesday while she was mid-tantrum (if you saw my Stories you’ll know all about it, if not, they’re in my Highlights). And I’ve spent the last two days reading through all of your amazing #tantrumtales. There’s been kids shouting “stranger, stranger!” at their Mam, a lot of tears (from both kid and parent), and some truly cringe-worthy experiences. So, thought we should keep them flowing. What’s your best #tantrumtales?
Y logran tomas realmente únicas
#allthatis….five? We’ve got a new member of the family that we’d like you all to meet. Meet Elvis (the whippet); Elvis meet everyone. This little guy came flying into our home on Friday and has been hogging the sofa ever since. He’s adorable, loveable and has (thankfully) already been sleeping beside and licking Bugs (in a friendly way, not a oh-you-taste-good kind of way 😂😉). #allthatisthree
Todo comenzó por una fotografía en la que las tres vestían iguales
We're all feeling pretty happy in our new matching @sondeflor dresses. Of course, a simple smile for Penny wouldn't be funny enough, so this is what we got instead 😝 'It spins mammy; it spins!’ which for Penny is how the only way to determine if a dress is worthy to wear, or not. For Amelia and me, it’s all about the comfort and general coolness of wearing a soft linen dress, and alright, we may partake in the occasional spin too. Twinning at its very best for this weeks #allthatisthree
A la gente le gustó tanto que la bloguera pensó que el tema daba para mucho más
Y en efecto no dejan de sorprendernos con sus vestuarios
Sus fotografías familiares son un encanto
Le está enseñando a sus hijas con cada foto lo que es el verdadero sentido del humor
Well shiver me timbers, what do we have here? This is what happens when you ask Penny for ideas for this week’s #allthatisthree. Pirates! And it’s a perfect representation of our day because that squishy little face has been more unruly than any pirate could ever be. We’ve had tears, tantrums, whining, arguing, the whole works. If we had a ship, she’d be walking the plank by now 🙊. When does this mellow? Does it ever? Amelia was always so easy-going and quiet when she was younger, but I’m starting to think that the frightful fours are taking over from the terrible twos! 🙈
Y aquí tenemos a papá
With Amelia away this week – and with my lack of pre-planning and organisational skills – we were left with a bit of quandary for this weeks #allthatisthree. Do we skip a week? Or do we draft in a stand in? I put it to a vote over on my Insta-Stories and the decision was unanimous. So, here you go, #allthatisthree (the Boy Dom edition).
Esta es una familia multifacética
There's a new craze in the world of kids. Every night these two scientists take over my kitchen, turn it into their lab, raid my kitchen cupboards, and make their very own….slime (usually adding glitter to *really* maximise the mess 😉🙄) . Anybody else experiencing this? When I was a kid it was all about Pogs – a game where you'd hit two circular pieces of card with a 'slammer' in the hope of turning them both over (riveting stuff 😉). What was the craze when you were a kid? #allthatisthree
Llena de imaginación
Y hasta las fotos más convencionales están preciosas
We're such a croissant loving family. I'm pretty sure that Penny's (and probably my) diet is 96% pastry. So, when @thewhitecompany asked me how I was escaping to the summer this year, I immediately thought of food and al fresco dining. There's nothing better than to use the lazy weekend mornings to get out into the garden and enjoy a breakfast banquet, in the sun (I'm sure the neighbours love to hear us there bright and early, too 😉). #EscapeToTheSummer Summer #MyWhiteCo • • • Pyjamas, Aubrey Outdoor Mattress, Mango Wood Serving Platter, Picnic Blanket, Rattan Dining Basket, and Pembridge Stripe Napkins all c/o @thewhitecompany #sp
Aunque Dominique también necesita su propio espacio
Spring has officially sprung (the calendar and the insect bite on my leg that happened while shooting this image is proof of it). And it’s been so eagerly anticipated that even the sun decided to make an appearance to celebrate. If you managed to catch sight of a rainbow today then you’ve got me to thank – champion rainbow painter over here. Sorry about the rain that came with it, but it’s all part and parcel of a rainbows, okay 😉? What a wonderful way to spend #internationaldayofhappiness 😁🌈 #scenefromtheceiling
And the grey hairs. The wrinkles. The early mornings. Unfinished conversations. Cold coffees. Lateness (I was late before my kids came along, but I’m sure the reason that it’s not improving is because of them 😉). Crowded bathroom trips and the crowded bed. The weekend’s that are filled with soft play visits and parties. The extra mileage on the car from being a personal taxi service. My messy house. The never-ending flow of washing. The constant negotiating. It’s all because of the kids. And yet, I wouldn’t have it any other way 😉. Thank you all so much for your comments, advice and opinions on my last post. Although I didn’t manage to reply to them all, I did read every single one and they’ve definitely made me think about how we handle the topic of saying sorry with the kids. Thank you ❤️
Porque si no puede llegar a enloquecer y tomar fotos como esta
#sponsored – I’ve had enough of cleaning up the mess, now it’s time to clean up the mess-ers 😉. I’ve written a new blog post about how I – a notoriously messy person – manages to keep her house tidy(ish). I get a lot of help from my new love, the @dyson Cordless Vacuum V10 and by putting my phone away as far away from my hands as possible. Link in bio. #dysonV10 #dysoninvents
Dominique ama los 80 y enseña a sus hijas a amarlos también
It’s all been about the 80s this weekend. First the Goblin King made (a rather large 🍆) comeback on Friday night 😉, and now this. The verdict: we’d all happily go back – crimped big hair, colours, and the music #allthatisthree #whp🦄 And a big Happy Mother’s Day! The motherhood journey and story is different and unique to us all; no one is the same (much like the kids we raise). There’s no right or wrong way to parent, there’s just your way. From how you became one, to how to you do it and what it means to you. The sleepless nights, early mornings, the random I love you’s, meal times that always require serious negotiation and bargaining skills, the doubting yourself (am I doing it right?), the proud moments (Amelia performing in her show and Penny reading the word ‘chicken’ out of the menu this weekend) and the unconditional love. The memories we make, the #allthatisthree’s we create, I love our wonderful family, I wouldn’t change a thing (well, apart from the early mornings, I’d happily say farewell to those 😉) . I got to celebrate with lots of food, a lengthy lie in (much needed after Friday night), and got to listen to *my* music all day long (Simply Red, Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Elton John – they’ve had the pleasure of hearing them all).
Aquí las vemos como Mery Poppins (la pequeña es un encanto)
Because I can’t get enough of that squishy little face or get over how much Amelia has changed in just a few short months. What that squishy little face doesn’t know is that she’s going to see the ‘real’ Mary Poppins at Disneyland Paris in May with the family. The plan is to tell her the day before we leave, maybe even the morning of because she has no concept of time right now, so I don’t think any of us could bear the daily “is it Disneyland time yet?” over breakfast, every morning 😁. But also, the thought of the excitement and the thrill of being whisked away to a magical place within 24hours sounds like a good plan too. An old work colleague once told me that when she was younger, her parents woke her up crazy early one morning and told her that she was going to London to see Michael Jackson that day. Can you imagine? I adored Michael Jackson when I was a kid (I was obsessed), so although the car journey would’ve been torturous for anyone with me (“are we there yet?” shouted over MJ’s back catalogue), it would’ve been my childhood dream. It’s a story that stayed with me and an reveal that I always wanted to do one day with my kids, if I could keep the secret long enough. I can’t give them MJ, but I can do Disney ☺️. Have you ever surprised your kids with something magical?
Todas coronadas con flores
This weekend has been all about the flowers. Flower crowns, Penny's Floral Faffing Workshop (she sat for a good 30 minutes just cutting up petals and stems), flower baths, even the snowdrops decided to make an appearance in the garden. It's the bouquet that just keeps on giving. Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend. #WHPcolorful #allthatisthree
If you’ve got spots, then we’ve got them too. Showing our love and support for little P who is finally over the awful stages of chickenpox, but is still covered in spots from head to toe (they’re even in her mouth!). But, when it comes to family, you have to share the good and the bad, so we couldn’t just stop at matching clothes 😉 #WHPwithlove #allthatisthree We’ve all been confined to the house this week, with not a lot going on (one of the effects of having a contagious child 😷😉), so fill me in with all your news – what’s been going on? What’s been your wins of this week? Mine include having a full night sleep again on Friday night, seeing my school friends for food and board games last night, and eating all the nachos while watching Coco at the cinema.
Y hasta sus mascotas son completamente fotogénicas
Definitivamente han construido un mundo maravilloso con sus fotografías
Me: Where do you want to go on holiday in the summer, P? Penny: SPACE! Me: Erm…okay…no sure we’ll be able to make it there this year, so will a cardboard rocket suffice? #whpawaywego Thankfully, it did. So, alongside being a footballer, a hairdresser and a palaeontologist, Penny also wants to be an astronaut (the @bravery_mag that I talk about on my Stories has definitely helped spark that passion). @elonmusk watch out, you’re looking at a future employee 😉.
¿Te gustaría hacer una sesión así con tu mamá o tus hermanas?
I realised last week that we'd missed the one year mark of our #allthatisthree series (I thought it had started in July when actually it was in June). So, here's our one year anniversary post (a whole 6 weeks late). Happy birthday #allthatisthree! 🎉🎈 I wonder; can we go for another year? What will the next year of images look like? And how long until my bed is free of glitter stars? 😂
