{Gentle} parenting my 3 year old daughter with purpose

Parenting a strong willed, full of sass 3 year old isn’t always easy. My little girl is in a stage where she copies everything I say with an attitude and harsh tone. She will throw things and sometimes use force to kick or push. I never experienced this with my son. He was so gentle and never talked back to me, ever.   My middle child is the complete opposite. Do not get me wrong she can be the sweetest little 3 year old…

35 week BUMPdate

I have not been consistent with these bumpdates. It’s okay and I am not going to beat myself up over it. I had every intention of photographing my growing bump EVERY WEEK with a cute weekly banner…. That definitely did not happen.   Teaching 1st grade for the majority of this pregnancy took a toll on me. I was exhausted every day, it was difficult to read even a short story, it hurt to walk, and I was left with…

The Ashmores Blog has some BIG news!

Teaching has been my passion since I was a little girl. I used to play school in my bedroom. I had a chalkboard, overhead projector, worksheets, and animals as my students.   I was so excited when that dream became a reality in August of 2010! I landed my first teaching job at an amazing private school. There was only one problem. I had an 8 month old and would need to leave him in the care of someone else.…

My Rainbow baby Maternity shoot.

A rainbow baby is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. I have experienced 2 miscarriages in my adulthood and neither one of them were something I ever thought I’d endure. Losing a child when you’re only a couple weeks or further is hard no matter what. My faith in the Lord was the only thing that got me through both. Ainsley is my first rainbow baby and now Leighton will be my second. God gives and…
