Welcome to a day in my life!

In this video you’ll see a day in my life as a work at home mom to 4 littles.

My life is not extraordinary, or spectacular.
There’s nothing special about me or my family.
I’m not particularly interesting, talented or smart. 

We are ordinary people with ups, downs, challenges and wins. 

So really, there’s nothing interesting about my day and no real reason for you to watch it (😉).

And this day isn’t especially different from any of our other days (although there were surprisingly few melt downs) and there’s no “secret” or fancy trick I’ll be exposing.

The truth is…

My day is fascinating.

Because all of our days are fascinating.

Our lives and how we choose to live them are incrediblyinteresting.

The small, moment by moment decisions and choices that make up our days (weeks, months and years) are a reflection of who we are and who we want to be.

Your day is fascinating.

  • How do you wake up in the morning?
  • What do meal times feel like? 
  • When are your unseen special moments?I believe in the power of small moments to create the meaning and satisfaction we seek in our lives.

I’m sharing this not because I’m something special, but because I hope that seeing my flow can inspire you to create yours in a way that reflects yourjoy.

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Check out my IGTV for more amazing success stories.⁣

Parent In Love is a 6-month deep-dive online program that will transform your marriage from the inside out. ⁣

Check it out!⁣
LINK IN BIO @parentingjunkie ⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣

  1. I always pick up lots of good tips from you that help with our daily flow. From your last DITL I started making dinner at 3pm. I like that you work out at the beginning of your day so it gets done—trying that now. All the self care 🙂

    1. Dear Laura, that’s so great to hear! Yes to the dinner prepared before evening hits! My brain is so slow at 4:30 pm…!

  2. Hi! Very grateful for you, Avital! I’m an unschooling mother of three, ages 3, 5, & 7. Daddy is gone 2 to 3 weeks each month for work. I spend quite a lot of time preparing meals and cleaning them up. There always seems to be one who will not eat. This area is a challenge for me. Did not see you cooking or cleaning in the video, although your feast looks delicious! Does your husband do this? Do the kids help out to clean afterwards? Would love to hear your tips and advice. Thank you!

    1. Hey Amber! Oh I can definitely relate – no my husband is also not home this year during the week. I do it with the help of my wonderful babysitter/ housekeeper Christina and I try to involve the kids although that’s challenging. I get the frustration of preparing a meal and having someone not willing to eat – I’m pretty non accommodating there. We prepare a few different foods and I always say there’s definitely something here you could eat, and if not you’re probably not hungry. I also let them prepare themselves (the big two anyway) an avocado toast or take a fruit. Sending loads of love!

  3. Thank you for sharing it with us. It does look like a usual day of your life. And it is inspiring. I understand while watching that my days might be a little bit different, but still look like your and days of other moms out there. We just do what we think is best for our families and children. So thank you a lot for showing us one of your ordinary days. And I really like the message “to believe in the power of small and every moment”. Thank you for your work and your passion about parenting and your contribute into it! Lots of love

    1. Thanks so much for watching and commenting Anastasiia! So wonderful to have you here.

  4. Loved!!!! Great flow and energy. Love the feeling we are growing with your little ones. Thank you for sharing these precious moments and insights.

    1. Thank you Adriana! I know it’s special to watch the years pass together, right?!

  5. Avital this was so inspiring to watch! I homeschool and I was wondering why you only do 15 minutes of homeschooling per day? Is that for each kid? I didn’t even know that was possible! Haha.

    1. I honestly find that my son can’t focus for longer than that! So actual “textbook” work is a max of 15 minutes a day. 30 TOPS! I currently only do it with my 7 year old as I find my 5 year old is not ready or interested much yet. We do a lot of non formal talking exploring and learning together. But no formal homeschooling. I’m more of an unschooler at heart but math and Hebrew are things I do want to teach formally.

  6. Very inspiring video. Thanks for sharing! How did you find your wonderful babysitter/housekeeper?

    1. I was incredibly lucky that I heard about her by word of mouth from someone in my town! Her help truly was heaven sent!

  7. Hi, Avital,
    I honestly think you should make a cooking tutorial with those dishes. They are so wonderfully arranged on the plate.
    But I also have a question regarding independent play. My 4 year old likes to play with legos and wooden cubes etc. On his own, but sometimes he gets frustrated when pieces don’t fit and has massive tantrums. Have you ever experienced such behavior with your little ones or what would suggest in dealing with frustration. I have listened to your peaceful tantrums webinar so many times, and I wish someone would tell me my boy will eventually grow out of this. Thank you

    1. Thank you Simona! You have a great question and I want to encourage you to post it on our Love Parenting with Avital Facebook Group (, where you’ll find non-judgmental advice and support. To me, it sounds like normal behavior for young children to get frustrated with toys that are too challenging for their current stage of development. I hope to see you in our Facebook Group! – Tracy xxx
