natashachalker So blueberry Nutrigrain bars are not his favorite flavor. So he spit it on the couch. When I told him that was a no-no, I got this HUGE smile. Really, how can I keep a straight face ? Lord why did you give me such a cute kid?! #ryannithik 1d

natashachalker Adventures with toddlers #thetoddlerlife 3d
  •   michelle365 Girrrrrl....you are not alone. I have had my fill of 'creative expression'! 3d
  •   juliebrowncasey Haha!! My girls did the same thing as they learned letters. Scribbled all over everything!! Years later, I am STILL finding their "art work" on the pages of some of my books. (And I love it) 3d
  •   emawee_s Whoopsie! When Nicola-Marie was a toddler we used to have white walls (big mistake) I remember discovering chocolate handprints in various places of our living room. 3d
  •   natashachalker Oh he's colored all over every wall in the house just about. Thank goodness for magic eraser although this particular photo was not behind glass... I just walked out of the room for 10 seconds and heard him saying UH OH. That means run fast! @emawee_s @michelle365 @juliebrowncasey Glad I'm in good company. 3d
  •   mothergoose5.18 Have you seen the picture going around FB of the "What To Expect The Toddler Years" book covered in sharpie? 3d

natashachalker Many times I have asked God to break my heart for what breaks his. As a result, my heart is broken over and over again for the fatherless. Those that have no one to fight for them, those that will never have the privilege of knowing what a family is. I was once told to just turn it off. Life goes on. But once you've seen it, felt it and known it, you can't. Or at least I can't. The orphan crisis is in my heart forever and today my heart is heavy for many that are longing for a family. #adoptionislove #adoption #internationaladoption #myheartisforindia 6d

natashachalker Going to visit his (empty) pre school again today while watching the Yo Gabba Gabba school video. Hoping it starts sinking in soon cause we have 2.5 weeks until school starts. Yikes! #ryangoestoschool #ourlittlechocolatemuffin 1w
  •   cathyy_33 Summer is going by way too fast! I have 3 more weeks. 1w
  •   natashachalker @cathyy_33 I know! 1w
  •   natashachalker @cathyy_33 I know. Where did it go ? 1w
  •   valeriegeorgelin @natashachalker he will learn perfect English then. It's sad and beautiful at the same time. I remember my little brother didn't know any english till he started kindergarden. It was so sad to see him speak more English than Spanish, but at the same time it was precious. Ryan is going to be the bomb in his school. 7d
  •   emawee_s @natashachalker yeah, tis the norm for English schools. Finish late July, 6 weeks off and then back the 4th September. So ready for summer break already! 6d
  •   natashachalker @valeriegeorgelin your brother sounds sweet! I've taught several kids that didn't speak English and they learned so quickly! I know what you mean though - I can see Ryan losing some of his Indian-ness. It makes me so sad. 5d
  •   natashachalker @emawee_s bless you!! 5d

natashachalker #knittogetherbyadoption In the summer we try to take small trips and visit family. Last week we went to the lake with 40 of Scott's extended family members - aunts, uncles, cousins. These wacky people all belong to my husband : his mom, step dad, sister,brother in law and their girls. Thankful Ryan has a crazy family to call his very own. Every year we try to do a PJ photo - normal picture and silly shot. Ryan is sporting swim goggles. The last one we took just a few days before we were matched with Ryan #natashasoneyearlaterproject #adoption #myheartisforindia 1w

  •   iveyishome I know it is crazy 1w
  •   natashachalker My friend/groomer also keeps her when we go out of town. She said someone dumped two kittens at her house. They followed Nuggy around since she was the smallest dog at her house. Nuggy was like, what the... @iveyishome 1w
  •   iveyishome Oh my goodness are there photos???? 1w
  •   natashachalker I don't think so .. Just one of her on their fishing boat. She went on vacay too! Thankful for sweet friends that love my Nuggy @iveyishome 1w
