Lately, Jaxon has been sitting next to me while I’m reading. He takes a book, starts babbling cute sounds and even drinks his milk as if it was coffee like mommy. So I decided to make “reading together” a part of our morning routine.

With a two years old toddler this adorable routine lasts just a few minutes. Then he finishes “reading”, and he’s ready to start jumping on the sofa or climbing all over me. So I discovered that we both end up closing the books without saving the pages. Of course, is easier to come back and find the pages in Jaxon’s tiny books. But for me, it’s much more work.

To make this routine more successful, and be able to find the pages later, I had the idea of making two bookmarks. One is for mommy and one for Jax since I knew he would love having his own.

If you are a fan of bookmarks too, you can download these colorful free printable bookmarks for you and your kid, or a friend just by clicking on the image below.

Jaxon had a fever and a cold for almost five days last week, so we were extremely happy to be able to leave the house last Saturday and Sunday to enjoy the sunny weather. We even took some books and the bookmarks with us. It was a lot of fun.

Which design do you like more?

Confessions of a Mami Blogger | Live Colorful

When I started blogging, five years ago, things were so different. There was no pressure of professional pictures. Blogging was rough and simple.

Then time passed, blogging changed, and in the process, I became a mother.

I was too worried about trying to keep my life the same as how it was before my baby arrived. I wanted to continue growing my business, working in sponsored campaigns and collaborating with brands while dealing with all the challenges of a new mother.

One big pressure, I remember, was trying to show pretty images of my new life constantly. It was hard, because, as a lot of you already know, motherhood is not perfect. It’s actually really messy. But I was obsessed with capturing all the“pretty” memories. I often made my husband and baby sit down and posed for the camera. They didn’t love it, and I couldn’t but feel guilty about it.

Trying to capture “beautiful” moments feels exhausting and silly sometimes. My baby is growing, he wants to make messes, be rude, push my buttons in front of people. And sometimes I’m there, trying to make him pose for pictures while all he wants to do is run or jump.

Last weekend we celebrated Jaxon’s second birthday. I got home and realized that I forgot to take pictures of his party. I came home feeling guilty and totally sad about not having digital memories of that day. So I took out a piece of leftover cake when we got home and I decided to recreate the moment just to take some pictures of his balloons and birthday gifts.

The thing is that is so hard to be a mami blogger and not try to take tons of pictures of your kid, family, and life all the time!

Even when is hard to stop, I now realized that as much as I love looking at images of my kid smiling and playing on my phone or computer, it will never be the same as looking at his face in front of me, while the moment is still happening.

As a good therapy, I started to take quick and non-planned pictures and I started to appreciate the beauty of pixelated faces, blurry smiles, and dark videos. There is authenticity in them, and a sense of reality and honesty, just like blogging five years ago.

Are you a mami blogger too? How long have you been blogging? Do your kid loves helping you with pictures or he hates them?

February is already here. How crazy is that? It seems like just a few days ago we were getting excited about Christmas trees and holiday gifts, and now it’s all about hearts and flowers everywhere. I honestly love it, it’s kind of refreshing and a good reminder that spring is getting closer and closer.

I let myself get inspired by the theme of the season when I sat down to draw the other night. I sketched a simple heart and filled it with pink and red flowers. I honestly didn’t have any plans for the illustration, but then I saw it from far away and instantly realized that they would be awesome Valentine’s Day gift tags!

Follow my blogging behind the scenes through Instagram stories. Lots of sketching, doodling, taking pictures, editing and more.

The printable design is extra simple, which I love because you can use them in many different ways. Gift tags was my first idea, but you can also make cupcake toppers, use them in your next scrapbook project, or even glue them in a big paper clip and use them as bookmarks. Can you think of anything else? Please let us know! 😉
