    Are you Selling Out More to Others Than Your Spouse?

    Are you Selling Out More to Others Than Your Spouse?

    We feel this is something that could be applicable to everyone. It could be an unconscious thing that’s happening, which you’re not even aware of, but it’s good to become aware of it. Marriage is basically the biggest commitment we can make and it’s easy to take for granted because it’s just there constantly once you’re married. Your marriage is where you have committed to give it your all and that can take extra dedication to really give the other person the love and attention they need from you to keep your bond strong.

    Are you more engaged outside of the home? 2:15Your marriage is where you should be giving the most 4:00A dynamic marriage 5:00Are other influences complementing your marriage? 7:50
    “My children are paying attention to my marriage and later when they want to make choices for their spouse. If they’re not in a good relationship, they might say to themselves after a while. This isn’t what my mom and dad have. I want something that my mom and dad had, and then that might cause them to look for someone who picks marriage first, who picks dating first, who picks friends that complement marriage.” 8:33

    Family Vision Boards with Maria Smith | Unlocking Family Potential

    Family Vision Boards with Maria Smith | Unlocking Family Potential

    In this episode we are talking about how family vision boards create space to connect and teach children the power of setting goals as an individual and a family. As an eternal optimist, Maria is a relentless pursuer of happiness. Discovering how most everything in life can be solved or fixed with a little grit, moxie, and a love for doing what you do, is her superpower. Listen to Rosie and Maria talk about how goals and vision boards can best be implemented into your family’s life and how this can really change your family’s future for the better.

    How Maria got into vision boards 1:00Being careful with the detail 6:20Her experience with accountability and the visual 12:20Preparing your children to best prepare for the future 27:00The neuroscience behind vision imagery 41:30
    “There’s such science around tracking our progress and physically writing it down. Apps are great, but physical trackers on paper are much more.. They have a higher success rate than our apps because it’s easy for me to forget about an app on my phone and not do it, but if I’ve got a paper in front of me that I’ve got next to my desk, or taped to my computer or the wall where I’m working, I’m gonna stay much more consistent with that.” 44:42

    It Starts at Home!

    It Starts at Home!

    Today we wanted to discuss the concept that your children’s foundation all starts within the home. “It starts at home. Fueling their minds, watering their thoughts, showing them grace, and asking for forgiveness when we’ve fallen short. It starts at home. Building healthy relationships, teaching them manners, showing them the power of kindness. It starts at home. Using words with honour, speaking life into our situations, refusing to give up when the going gets tough, it starts at home. Prioritising the right things, making memories in the mundane, feeling our emotions rather than bottling them up, it starts at home. Being there for them, opening up the lines of communication, getting to know them more each and every day, it starts at home. And each and every day I pray that home will be a place they remember as learning, laughing, growing, forgiving, and setting a strong foundation for many years to come.” Fire Wife Chronicles by Lizzy Christian

    What this means for Rosie 1:25How many hours do you spend with them vs others? 3:30It’s OK when things slip up 6:35Teaching your kids to speak positively 10:50Creating a sanctuary for your kids 16:30
    “This isn’t something you wanna be doing all the time. But the good thing about that is instead of being like ‘No, we can’t do this.’ and then that’s the thing the children want to do, when they do get to do it, then they know it’s like a treat. Like a relaxing treat or a lazy day, but long term that’s not the thing you want to do consistently that will be productive for you.” 8:25

    Potty Talk | I Promise You We Are not Bad Parents

    Potty Talk | I Promise You We Are not Bad Parents

    All of the boys, and the boys particularly, love talking about potty stuff. Something we’ve come to realise is that your first doesn’t notice it too much because they don’t have siblings. They might interact with it a little bit at school, but it doesn’t consume them, but then as you have more kids and they start to speak about it among themselves, it begins to gain momentum as you have more and more children. Our 5th kid just loves the sound of any word that has to do with potty talk, and he loves to pronounce it clearly and slowly.

    This sums it up 2:00Tricking them to say something else 6:50It’s totally normal 9:00
    “We did a bunch of surprises. We didn’t tell them where we were going first…and then we had certain surprises. The Wednesday surprise was going to Disneyland as a family, and Daithi said, I’m trying to remember the context, but it was something like ‘Paddy, get your diaper on because you’re gonna crap your pants with joy.’” 2:00

    The 90/10 Rule | Taking Your Spouse For Granted

    The 90/10 Rule | Taking Your Spouse For Granted

    Adam heard something very interesting on a podcast the other day, which said often they see couples all around them, who are in their mid 40s, get divorced over the 10% of things that frustrate them, or annoy them, or that they wish were different, etc. and they set aside the 90% of things that they love about their spouse. “It is so easy to get fixated on someone’s 10% if you’re frustrated with your own life.” In preparation of talking about the 10%, talk often about the 90% of things you love about your spouse to soften the blow when it’s time to talk about the 10%.

    Fixation on the 10% 1:30A lot of the things you learn in marriage can guide raising children 7:30A simple example of showing affection 13:30
    “What I should really do is learn to embrace it and be like ‘if he gets his hug, he’s not gonna worry about us being late.’ but I’m used to you not being late, so I’m prioritising rushing to get out, and then it’s like, oh my goodness, I don’t want you to be frustrated because we’re late. It’s like a lose-lose.” 14:05

    Letting Go of The Sleep Obsession | Learning To Enjoy our Babies with Ellanee Wilson

    Letting Go of The Sleep Obsession | Learning To Enjoy our Babies with Ellanee Wilson

    Today we are meeting with Ellanee Wilson, the Sleep Coach Mom, and the purpose of this podcast episode is to help moms feel confident in whatever sleep choices they make. Rosie and Ellanee discuss the differences in how touchy your children can be and how this will influence their ability to sleep with you or on their own. Newborn babies often have fairly abnormal sleep patterns after leaving the mother’s womb, so it’s quite normal for things to be irregular once your baby is born, which many first time mothers don’t understand.

    Becoming the sleep coach mom 1:15Co-sleeping with your children 7:00Everyone has a different experience 12:30It’s OK for your child to not sleep well at first 18:00Women need the right support 29:00It’s not about finding the perfect nighttime routine once biological needs are met 35:00
    “I feel like there is an idea out there that if you do focus on independent sleep, it is like this rigid–and there is some level of like, you need to be consistent with things in the very beginning, but I feel like people have a preconceived notion that it means you just don’t respond to your child’s needs, and that’s just so very much not the case.” 41:39

Fantastic!

Adam and Rosie are a remarkable couple who have a very compelling life story. They went through a grinder and came stronger and more committed to succeeding and helping others. Worth a listen, particularly if you do not have the opportunity to be with them in person!!!

Rosie is such an intuitive and heart filled leader. I love the refreshing non-judgmental view she gives on being a momprenuer. Keep the content coming!
