My sons shelf currently. Lots of homemade and recycled materials which I strive for. He loves putting toothpicks or sticks into jars and pegging things, which heavily influenced my thought process here. You can also see the presence of the primary colors in his work, and one coloring sorting work is out for exploration. From left to right: egg carton and wooden eggs, nesting dolls, twist dowel puzzle, three shape puzzle, spice jar and toothpicks, handmade peg board and golf tees, formula can and wooden sticks, peg board (made from wood floor sample 😂) and plastic pegs, mini knobbed cylinder.

What you feed your children and next generation, will either help build them or break them.
We have always been big readers in my family. As a kid, my summers were spent reading, writing, and playing outside until it gets dark out.
When I in my teen years, my reading consisted of reading about about any punk bands books that my hands can get on.
At age 15, my incredible dad, Yasser Marzuq, told me to read better books that will help be progress in life. He put two books near me, Think & Grow Rich and Positive Action Plan both by Napoleon Hill, and recommended I read these books. My life was forever transformed.
Fast forward to Summer of 2018.
Meet my little brother Adam, my why!
Adam needs to do his summer reading. Adam is 11 years young. My dad is molding Adam’s mind in the right way.
My parents have done a remarkable job feeding our minds right at young age. All of us older children love reading. My parents still read.
What about the parents out there. What are your children reading?! How are you molding their minds?
Ten years ago today I became a big sister for the first time. I remember thinking how weird it was being a big sister, especially considering the fact that I was graduating from high school. But I was also incredibly excited. I remember the day @claire.pingul went into labor with you and how I rushed to the hospital to be there when you made your appearance. I was still jet lagged from my first trip across the pond but all of that went out the window when I got the call from @angelitopingul saying “Reyn she’s in labor but I’m going to take a nap.” He’s a funny guy sometimes our dad. Long story short, you were born and it was awesome. It’s been a blast watching you grow and come into your own personality. I love that you tell me about what you’re reading and the games you’re playing. Ten years flew by. Here you are double digits and about to become a big brother! I know it’s weird and hard to give up being the baby of the family, but I know you’ll be a wonderful big brother. I hope you have a fantastic birthday JB! Wish I could be there to celebrate with you! Love you!❤️ #doubledigitsnow#littlebrother#jacebrayden#bigsisterlove#eighteenyearsapart#tenyearslater#happybirthday#incomingspawn
When my mom told me she was pregnant I was so happy, I was dreaming of having a sibling. Then he was born.. My parents left me home when mom started having a baby, I was nervous. Next day daddy took me to meet my baby brother. He was only 2800grams,I was 12 years old.
We were fighting all the time, for tv,pc.. 😃 then I came to Japan.. it was so hard for me to live so far from my little brother. I couldn’t imagine a day without him.
This year we finally had some time to spend together, only me and him. Best 3weeks together.. Today he left back to Georgia, we both cried.. I know how much he misses me, as much as I miss him. I love you my little baby. You’re almost an adult now, but you will always be my little Nika ❤️ I’ll miss you!!! Hope to see you soon and one day we will still be always together ❤️
This dog 🙈 Pippa has been so amazing with baby Alfie. She runs to us if he is crying and then once she sees everything is fine goes back to her business, she fetches luigi when I’m shouting him and lays by us all the time. #littlebrother#doggysiblings#newbaby
As cliche as it may sound, loving and appreciating this body every step of the way has been a game changer this pregnancy! Every step including all the cellulite, 4 pant sizes up, stretch marks, swollen feet, face, and varicose veins. I feel so grateful for a healthy body that is creating a tiny little life. That doesn’t mean it has been easy or don’t you dare think i’ve had a “hashtag fit pregnancy”, all i know is i’ve never appreciated or been more proud of this growing body. 💪🏻 #35weeks#bodylove
