This guy thinks it’s hilarious that one of the Fiddle-leaf Fig’s just fell on Daddy! 😬🌿

Hot Mess Moms Unite 🥂 #momworthy 

Bodhi my wild child, his fearless and will go head on into something and keep going until his achieved what ever it is he is trying to do! He is kind and loving and extremely emotional. He is way cooler than I will ever be and loves to be surrounded by people 24/7. He would be the first to the top of a mountain and the last one out of the sea. Bodhi you are incredible!

So first of all, thank you all for all of your prayer and support. The outpouring of love that we have received has really taken my breath away. Your continued prayers are appreciated more than you know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Second of all, I know that you are awaiting an update on sweet baby Elliot’s status. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It has been difficult to update everyone because not a whole lot had changed until now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After a series of poking and prodding 💉: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✅ blood work 🧪 ✅blood cultures ✅urinary catheter to collect urine ✅a spinal tap to test his cerebral spinal fluid ✅a chest and abdominal x-ray ✅a head ultrasound to test for trauma ✅three different IV antibiotics around the clock ✅and ‘round the clock Tylenol 💊in an attempt to bring down his persistent fever ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Elliot had been through the ringer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday was particularly difficult because there was one specific doctor who was treating Elliot like he had the plague and got on my case every time I held him 🤱🏼. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So now? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We finally have gotten his temperature down to 99.9 🌡and I am snuggling him💞. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All tests have come back negative and reassuring. We have found nothing abnormal in this sweet little guy other than his symptoms. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They hope to stop his antibiotics today if the urine culture comes back clear (the only thing we are waiting on for now) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The current plan is to manage his pain, keep nursing him as much as I can, and attempt at keeping his fever down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No sign of discharge from the hospital yet. But if things start looking up, I’m hopeful we will go home tomorrow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As for me? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m pretty sure my body went into fight or flight mode two nights ago and has hung out in that state ever since. I’ve peed once in 24 hours and haven’t moved from this spot in the same amount of time...because this is as far as his monitors will reach.

To my daughter. You will always me my best friend, my first love, my mini me... It’s hard to explain to you HOW much you are so much like me, but it blows my mind. From the little things you say, your gestures, your mannerisms, right up to some of your feelings that you express to me. I truly am lucky to have you call me mom. My love for you grows each and every single day. I want you to know that you have the potential to be ANYTHING you want in this world... and I will be here through it all.

My favorite morning poffee spot & my new favorite mug 😍🙌🏻 SEE THE GOOD. Easier said than done sometimes, right? But I believe it’s a habit & the more we train ourselves to actually see the good & intentionally look for blessings in simple moments every day, the easier it becomes. Cheers to a new day buddies! ❤️☕️ http://liketk.it/2EjFM #liketkit  @liketoknow.it

The look of pure joy. 🥰 If you saw my stories today then you know little man was up at 3am last night. 🤦🏻‍♀️ He self-soothed at bed time without any tears, so I really thought we had it in the bag. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I took him to the park on the evening he slept through, so after our park trip today— maybe we’ll get a night of sleep? 💁🏻‍♀️🤞

It’s #nationalrainbowbabyday  so here’s my #rainbowbaby  !!! He’s grown so much and can be the most loving big brother when he wants to be 🤣

20 seconds.. 20 seconds is how long I held this pose before my legs turned on me 😂 and i wobbled to the ground but that’s 20 seconds longer then I held it 20 something days ago..hello..I’m no ballerina! . Fear stops us from trying new things.. fear of not being able to keep up..fear of failing and i don’t know about you but I always get frustrated when things don’t go exactly the way i want them too but we have to remember to give ourselves some grace and know that we’re NOT going to be great at something when we first begin.. it’s going to take some time, lots of patience and consistency💕 . After Labor Day I’m opening up a new health and fitness group ..it’s a no judgement zone and we’re all here to support one another .. I’m so ready!! Are you? . . #ballerina  #sograceful  #yougotthis  #mamahood  #motherhoodthroughig  #reallifemotherhood  #motherhoodunplugged  #newbie 

You guys.😭 Both of my babies.😍🌈🌈 It’s national rainbow baby day today, and I could not be more grateful for my two precious rainbows. No doubt their big brother would be obsessed with them.💙 #lilahgreyhall  #rowanthanehall  #brianawillispresets  #nationalrainbowbabyday 

Motherhood 💓 It's full of imperfection and inconveniences. But it's also full of joy and love and that's what makes it all worth while! I may be learning as I go, but that's motherhood for ya. #gratitude  #mamahood  #blessedmama  #boymama  #mamasblessing 

Real talk: I have this ironing board in the corner of my studio, but it's often so covered that I end up ironing on a towel in the floor. Between mama life, designing new products & running my business, organization and keeping my studio tidy is definitely something I struggle with!

This little pumpkin has started to roll over. She caught us by surprise the other day after her bath time, decided to show us her new skills. And now she's doing it constantly, apparently the best entertainment (well, as far as she doesn't get stuck, then she becomes one little angry person). So, now we're a bit scared since the swaddling is still happening.. but I guess not for long anymore 🤷🏻‍♀️ . Your best advice to these newbie parents with a roll-over baby on their side? . . . . #celebratechildhood  #lookslikefilmkids  #posttheordinary  #simplymamahood  #watchthemgrow  #teammotherly  #kids_of_our_world  #wildandbravelittles  #parenthood_moments  #stopdropandmom  #storytellingmama  #inspiremothers  #mamahood  #ourtreasuredmoments  #imomsohard  #parenthood_unveiled  #beyond_motherhood  #mytinymoments  #honestlyparents  #thehonestlens  #mybeautifulmess  #inbeautyandchaos  #humansofjoy  #acupofmotherhood  #umh_kids  #jj_its_kids  #motherhoodisdarling  #honestlymothering  #momswithcameras  #rememberingthesedays 

What cracks me up today is the lack of wanting to workout beforehand compared to this post workout feeling I have after— world’s apart you guys 🙈 . Let me even more honest with y’all. If I had to actually sneaker up, get in my burning hot car, drive to the gym, wake Brady up from his nap and then send him to the babysitter room there just so I could get a 28 cardio sweat in like I did right in my family room, a big old NOPE would’ve happened. . Not in this season of life. Not in my Thursday tired state. Not in a million years would I wake a babe— mamas we know this one 😉 . I’m way more into convenience, inexpensive home gyms, amazing trainers streaming on my tv, and a super supportive virtual gym group of gals doing the same thing I’m doing. That’s how I got myself to workout just now. It’s either do what everyone does and hate it or go your own way and absolutely love the surprise that comes along ☺️

When she looks back on childhood, I hope she remembers it as a happy one.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ And when I’m old, and my memories fade, please let these days be what sticks closest.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #parenting  #mamahood  #tribedmama  #gentleparenting  #mama  #everydaymoments  #naturallife  #ohheymama  #healthyhome  #yleo  #lovemyfam  #mytinytribe  #nestingly  #joyfulmamas  #letthembelittle  #capturequiet  #embracingaslowerlife  #darlingmovement  #myquietbeauty  #thatauthenthicfeeling  #makemoment  #nothingisordinary  #momitforward  #mytinymoments  #mynameismama  #stopdropandmom  #motherhoodlens  #morethanmama  #storytellingmama  #summer 

Hi my name is Teresa and I’m an emotional eater! That’s not really a revelation for me. I always knew that I was and I used to say it alot. But it really hit me yesterday at dinner. We sat at our table like every evening, talking and sharing things from our day. It was a highly emotional day for us and we were doing what we always do, we were talking it out. As we’re talking, I finished my delicious chicken sausage with broccoli, peppers and onions (I forgot to take a picture...believe me it was delicious). I reached over and kept grabbing the broccoli and chicken sausage. I ended up eating way more than I wanted to and kept going well after I knew I was full. The plus side is that it was healthy food, however, I definitely was full and ended up pushing the bowls to the far side of the table because I knew if it was within my reach I would devour more of it. I seriously walked away from our dinner table looking six months pregnant. I really wish someone would have taken a picture! *hint hint* Brendan! While I have always known that I eat more when I’m processing things or as some people put it “in my feelings”, it didn’t hit me until now and it hit me hard! Instead of beating myself up, which I am really good at, I realized that this one decision isn’t going to derail my progress. I refuse to allow that. Normally though, I would have delved into a huge mug of ice cream (yes, I eat my ice cream in those big coffee mugs!) and it probably would have continued into the next day causing a downward spiral. That’s my pattern. Instead, I made a conscious decision to stop this habit. I woke up slightly bloated as you could probably tell in my workout videos, but I felt much better than I know I would have if I kept going. I know this shift in mindset has a lot to do with being mindful with my nutrition. If you have the same issues that I do, you don’t have to keep heading down the same pattern. You’re definitely not alone and I can help. Only 4 spots left for my Mindful Nutrition Program. Prep-week starts on Monday. There’s still time!

Forever grateful for you, Liam James. 🌈 #NationalRainbowBabyDay 

Some days I am overflowing with profound thoughts and ideas, eager to share. And some days I struggle to articulate my headspace into simple words, let alone share with the world. Some days I fall in the grey area, when the words come but take me down countless rabbit trails. . And all is acceptable. . There is an unspoken pressure, especially on these readily available online platforms, to share- this unwritten standard that we all strive to reach. Post with aesthetic, but post authentically. Share your triumph after tribulation but not the behind the scenes trips and falls. Share the genuine beauty of your Self, but not your ‘whole’ Self. . If you haven’t noticed, I’m at a bit of a crossroads with this screen life, an app with small glimpses into our lives, businesses, experiences. . And that’s quite alright. . & There’s of calm of sorts that settles in when we accept the grey, the undecided parts. Floating through the choices and options and intuitively feeling through what is (and isn’t) for us. I am reminding myself that the grey is ok. . . . #mamaom  #greyorgray  #anotherrabbittrail  #self  #gratitude  #selfcare  #yogalove  #liveyouryoga  #mamahood  #grayarea

we had a picnic today and McCoy asked me if he could take my picture and this is what he got. it’s probably my favorite picture that i’ve seen of myself in a long time. no real reason other than after he took it he said ‘you look happy mama.’ — in that moment, it was amazing how much of his truth i felt. one of the greatest things about a four year old is that they speak honestly from their hearts, always what they see and believe. i pray that i will always remember the way they look at me, need me, love me, forgive me, believe in me. i pray they one day understand that they’ve taught me what it means to be saved. our children can show us the key to true happiness isn’t being the perfect mom, it’s really just falling in love with the life they’ve blessed us with as their mom — the mom they need.💛

Buying a bridesmaids dress should be easy 😂 ⁣⁣ It's my fault for thinking a stop off at the big shopping outlet on the way back from my partner's parents house with the kids would be a breeze. 🤦🏼‍♀️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The lady at Guess must have thought we were insane. One toddler running amidst the very expensive dresses and a wailing newborn on my shoulder, and then swiftly hiding away in the dressing room to breastfeed. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I really felt the "mom label" slapped across my face.

Oh these sweet sweet babies of mine! Sometimes it’s surreal that these 3 are mine forever and I get the pleasure of watching them grow! • • Watching them pick out their outfits last night and the excitement of wearing their new shoes was so fun.

The first day of school is one the most important, although scary, days of the school year. New teacher, new subjects and friendships that will last a lifetime. Andrea loved her first day so much. Her teacher is now her role model and she is ecstatic that they have similar hair color.⁠ 🎇📘✏️🎒☕🤸‍♀️⁠ 🇻🇪 El primer día de clases es uno de los días más importantes, aunque atemorizante, de todo el año escolar.

My absolute favourite part about doing this new fitness program is being able to do it alongside people who have become like family to me.❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not only do I love seeing their check-ins in our Virtual Fit Club, including their smiling faces in their sweaty selfies, hearing about what parts of the workouts they loved, and what recipes they are using from the nutrition guide I also get to hear about their RESULTS in just the first 3 weeks! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of my clients shared that she lost 6 lbs and 3 inches overall! She is currently doing amazing with her physical and mental health and learning the balance of healthy eating while still enjoying life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of my team members shared that she lost 12 lbs and almost 2 pants sizes! Not to mention that drinking a superfoods shake everyday helps her eliminate mindless snacking! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Another one of my team members shared that she has lost 13 lbs and 13 inches! This is the first program that she has loved and actually stuck to because she loves the super trainer (@jerichomcmatthews  shout out to you, babe 😘) she loves having our Virtual Fit Club for accountability + me as her personal coach and because this is the first program where she is actually seeing results!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hearing these stories is not only my favourite part about doing this program, but it's also my favourite part of being a health + fitness coach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you would like more information on this program or what I do, comment your fave emoji below.👇 I can't wait to connect with you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #results  #family  #friends  #love  #communtiy  #snacks  #mentalhealth  #balance  #energy  #fave  #momsofinstagram  #momlife  #momsoflittles  #boymom  #girlmom  #csectionmama  #csection  #postpartum  #mommyoftwo  #tiredmommy  #momminainteasy  #helpingothers  #wifelife  #christianmom  #sahm  #stayathomemomlife  #realmomlife  #mamahood  #thatmomlife  #toddlermom 

....because somewhere over the rainbow, dreams come true. On August 22, mothers across the country united to show support for one another for National Rainbow Baby Day. This special celebration is a way for mothers across the country to share their experiences, grieve, reflect, and most importantly, celebrate the joy and love for their beautiful Rainbow Babies. #rainbowbaby 

These two ♥︎ Goodness am I excited to see them grow up together. A sister bond is something I never experienced so I get to live vicariously through them as they grow up. I truly believe that the best thing you can give your child is a sibling. A forever best friend!

World Breastfeeding Week came and gone. I totally missed that train. I just truly wanted to share this photo because it will forever hold a special place in my heart. For those of you that feel like these pictures are “too much” and that they’re showing too much must not understand the forever bond that comes with breastfeeding. I’m not sayin it’s always this beautiful experience cause it’s not. It’s one of the HARDEST journeys to take with your child. There are lots of tears and fighting with yourself and your child but this will always be one of my most beautiful struggles. I cannot wait until I get to experience this again when we decide to have another LO. Time goes by way too fast and although we spent 2.5 years of Trinity’s life breastfeeding, I never documented enough of those moments because I was that person that thought they were ‘too much’ ✨ . . . . . #documentingmotherhood  #motherhoodthroughinstagram  #motherhoodrising  #inspiremyinstagram  #mamahood  #motherhoodunplugged  #plussizemom  #bodypositive  #bodypos  #rawmotherhood  #selflove  #bodylove  #postpartum  #uniteinmotherhood  #thisismotherhood  #this_is_postpartum  #majesticmami  #motherhooddaily  #motherhoodsimplified  #littlejoys  #inspiremyinstagram  #beyondmotherhood  #fedisbest  #breastfeeding  #normalizebreastfeeding  #worldbreastfeedingweek  #explorepage  #dropthecover  #feedingwithlove 

Little man and mama have not been feeling 100% for the last couple of days. No fevers - just snotty and sneezy. Gotta love the back to school germs! 😂🤧

It’s been a day full of snuggles. Mason wasn’t feeling good at all yesterday and then a fever popped up last night. We’ve been on constant rotation of medicine but his fever still has not came below 101 since last night.At least he’s been able to eat and drink plenty of fluids, as well as having spurts of energy to be his normal crazy self. But this has been his favorite place today. He’ll put his hand on my stomach and say baby which is the cutest thing ever! Lots of snuggles and naps is just what we needed 💕

If you want what other people don’t have, you gotta do what they won’t do! The days are passing by. And each day, it’s easy to feel like our goal is to just survive. Get dinner on the table, pay a bill that’s on the counter, and schedule that doctors appointment on your todo list. But what if you could add little, 3 minute tasks scattered throughout your day that would eventually add up to a BIG, BIG life change? It’s hard to see the point in doing these seemingly tiny tasks. “What’s 3 minutes going to change in my life?” But as the days pass, 3 minutes gets multiplied. And grows. And grows and grows! And becomes so big and powerful. And had you not started NOW you’d be starting at zero when you finally decide you need more. It’s all about the ability to believe in that POWER of time that will give you what you want but feel like you can’t have. If you can envision it, YOU CAN HAVE IT QUEEN!!!!

. me right now. sipping some dandy blend, fresh breeze, sun shining, taking a minute ✌🏻 how’s your day going?

#mumlife  ———————- When I designed this slogan for my tees it was with the idea that when a mum wears it and walks by another mum, they’d give each other a wry little grin and a virtual high five 🖐🏻 and would know, silently, exactly what was being said. Because being a mum is all the things. I wrote a blog post about this (for the full version, link in the bio 👆🏼👆🏼). It’s all the washing and tidying and meal/bottle prep. It’s all the diarising and logistics and coordination of pick-ups. It’s the sibling fighting and broken sleep and working mum-guilt and self-doubt and identity loss. Mum life can be all those things. But we nod at each other because we know it’s also how you’re consumed with love when you kiss their sleeping face goodnight, the pride when they learn something new, the smell of their head when they snuggle in and relishing a night away from them then spending the whole time talking about them/looking at photos of them/FaceTiming them. #mumlife  is a tough gig but it’s the most important job we’ll ever have. And when you see another mum wearing that T-shirt, you just know.

It’s #nationalrainbowbabyday  today and I couldn’t pass the day without celebrating this sweet #rainbowbaby  of ours. Lawson is such a joy and lights up our lives. Seeing him learn new things daily just makes my heart soar and I love how much he loves his “sissy”. I think about our angel baby often. If it was a boy or girl, how they would’ve fit into our family, etc. We will know one day in heaven. We are thankful though that God sent us Lawson to help ease our pain.

Maternity sessions are one of my favorite sessions to photograph! Also, all the heart eyes for this gorgeous family all in white!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've been a little MIA this week as our family transitions to having a child in kindergarten (and one still at home). Turns out the little guy misses his big brother and doesn't know how to play independently. 😂 . . . #bayareaphotographer #maternityphotographer #bayareamoms #inpsiredbymotherhood #maternityfamilyphotos #themotherhoodanthology #motherhood #sweetmotherhood #lightandairyphotographer #ohheymama #sfphotographer #bayareamaternity #thebump #momtogs #thehonestlens #babyontheway #mamahood #northerncaliforniaphotographer #clickinmoms #alamedafamilyphotographer #oaklandphotographer #lightandairylove #familyphotography #documentyourdays #dearestviewfinder #eastbayphotographer #thatsdarling #sfnewbornphotographer #theheartofbeingamother #ajsec 

Liam James is EIGHT MONTHS OLD 💙 He speed crawls like a wild man. Climbs the stairs independently. Eats everything!! (Even broccoli now!) He is loving finger foods + always wants to feed himself when using a spoon. He even sits in a highchair at restaurants now! He absolutely hates diaper changes. He likes to “rock” in his rocking chair. Says “DaDa”. Dances when music is on. Still LOVES the bath and splashing! He is climbing up onto ev-er-y-thing and always keeps us on our toes. Did I mention he HATES DIAPER CHANGES? This month, Liam had his first hotel stay + loved every second of it! He learned how to clap, and he went to his first Eagles game! 🏈 He also went on his first ride on the boardwalk-> Dumbo! We love you, little man & cant believe we have already had 8 months with you! #8monthsold  #babymilestones

I usually say friends that introduce me to good food are the best! But friends who tell you about life changing books.. are pretty awesome too!⠀ ⠀ This book is majorly speaking to me in #mamahood  right now! I’m pretty sure she somehow got in my head and then wrote the book specifically to me 🤷‍♀️⠀ ⠀ Anyone else reading something good?!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #ownyourlife  #sallyclarkson  #bookofthemonth  #choosehappiness  #findyourjoy  #thisisthirty  #strongisbeautiful  #supermom  #momoftoddlers  #postpartumjourney  #newmama  #realmotherhood  #wahmlife  #befearless  #staypositive  #mamahood  #beyou  #stopdropandmom  #mominainteasy  #wahm 

Sylt 🌾 Es hat nur ein paar wenige Augenblicke gedauert, bis ich mich in diese Insel verliebt habe. Es ist einfach traumhaft hier: Ein wunderschöner Strand, tolle Restaurants, die typischen Reetdächer... Ich genieße meine Mama-Auszeit total und mache auch keinen Hehl daraus. Drei volle Tage nur Zeit für mich 🙌🏼 Jede Mama hat das Recht, ihre Akkus wieder aufzuladen- wie auch immer sie möchte und niemand sollte dafür schief angeschaut werden. Nehmt euch die Zeit, die ihr braucht, um den nächsten Trotzanfall zu überstehen- denn der kommt garantiert 😅 Levi ist bei seinem Daddy und ich darf Kraft tanken- für mich unheimlich wichtig. Ich bin im Alltag die meiste Zeit mit Levi alleine daheim, arbeite trotzdem jeden Tag und natürlich liebe ich mein Leben- aber diese Auszeit mit einem Glas Wein in der Hand genieße ich mindestens genau so sehr! ᵂᴱᴿᴮᵁᴺᴳ Und was könnte dazu besser passen als mein neues Shirt vom @badmomsclub.de  ? Keine Mama sollte verurteilt werden, weil sie das tut, was genau für IHRE Familie das richtige ist. Und genau dafür stehst der @badmomsclub.de  - ich liebe dieses T-Shirt 😍 und bin nur zu gerne Teil eures Clubs 😉❤️ So, und nun auf drei: Wer würde grade auch gerne mit einem gekühlten Weißwein am Strand sitzen und barfuß über den Sand laufen? 🌊 • • • • • #sylt  #syltliebe  #buhne16  #kampen  #badmomsclub  #mamaauszeit  #sychtig  #mamaalleinunterwegs  #jungsmama  #kleinkindmama  #lebenmitkleinkind  #mamablogger_de  #mamarazzi  #kleinerfeinerfeed  #momstyle  #mymomstyle  #mamaalltag  #instamamagang_de  #mumlife  #momgoals  #mamahood  #mamaleben  #workingmom  #fashionmom  #momsinstyle  #jungenmama  #boysmom  #makingmemories  #momshaming  #momsbelike

Happy Thursday! Ever feel like just deleting social media and not caring about posting much or seeing what everyone is up to? That was me this past weekend and the beginning of the week. I was still on here but barely and it felt great! Our babygirl turned 3, I went on an overnight getaway with one of my best friends, where we ate, drank and enjoyed some much needed girl time. We found this cute matcha shop and of course, had to have a mini photo shoot 😉 Once home we got in some quality family time 💕 The perfect remedy to get anyone back on track! What do you do to get back on track mentally, physically, emotionally? #MomLife  #Motherhood  #Momof2  #NoMakeup  #RunningOnCaffeine  #TopKnotMama  #BeautyinMotherhood  #MotherhoodUnplugged  #Motherhoodrising  #Motherhoodsimplified  #MamaHood  #SAHM  #SAHMLife  #SahmStyle  #TeamMotherly  #ThisisMotherhood  #HolyMatcha 

This little guy is One month old today! These last few weeks flew by! Of course we have been super busy adjusting to two babies. Although now days Reagan feels like such a big girl. It is crazy to see these last 4 weeks go by so quickly. Calvin has already gained a few more pounds and grown a few more inches. Babies dont keep 😭 . . . . . . #acupofmotherhood  #thatsdarling  #nestingly  #flashesofdelight  #habitandhome  #honestmotherhood  #motherhoodunplugged  #clickinmoms  #heyhomemaker  #homemaker  #joyfulmotherhood  #unitedmotherhood  #mamahood  #mymamahood  #ohheymamas  #mymotherhood  #thisismotherhood  #documentyourdays  #lifewithlittles  #momblog  #realmotherhood 

Wife + Mom^3 = Margarita Lover 🍹🤷🏼‍♀️⠀ ⠀ You too?? #VirtualToast  ⠀ ⠀ But game changer friends... superfoods turned margarita 🙌🏼⚡️👏🏼 YASSSSSS!!! ⠀ Used my strawberry superfoods today and added it to water, ice, a medium jalepeño, and fresh squeezed lime juice 💣 ⠀ ⠀ No tequila.. I know, I know... but hey, it’s a way to curb the craving, stay on track for your weekly meal plan AND enjoy a little treat in the day that is only considered a protein 👌🏼 ⠀ ⠀ What’s your go to favorite drink of choice??

Holy shiitake mushrooms, friends! . Let me introduce you to my BFF, CBD, THC’s straight edge cousin. 😂 As you know by now, natural modalities are my love language. I’ve been dappling with CBD personally for nearly a year and in my practice of holistic veterinary care for almost a decade. The benefits have been tremendous, from rescuing me from anxiety to relieving back and leg pain (this fourth pregnancy is not joke!). When Young Living recently acquired their own supplier in Colorado that cultivated using only organic and sustainable farming practices and ZERO THC (I am preggo after all), I had to take the leap into using a brand I know and trust with my whole heart. And thank the universe I did! . My motto for beginners is to always start low and slow. Last night I found my sweet spot! My brain has a very hard time turning off at night. Worries and fears spin around and often lead to panic. While I LOVE my essential oils, having CBD has been a life changing addition to my bedtime routine. I slept six solid hours! I didn’t wake up to pee a hundred times (thanks to minimal room for a bladder), I didn’t toss and turn, I didn’t move. And let me tell you, I’m feeling amazing today! . Did you know you already have an endocannabinoid system in your body? Yep, it’s already in place. Our ECS helps to regulate functions like sleep, nervous and immune system responses, pain, and reduces inflammation. And if you’re thinking it’ll get you high, Nature’s Ultra won’t because there is no THC. You’ll pass a drug test too. Remember, my bestie is on the straight and narrow. . Wanna know more? Drop me a PM or comment below and I’ll get you hooked up with my online class and introduce you to your new BFF. . In the words of the Hippocrates, who is considered one of the most outstanding figures in medicine...”The physician treats, but nature heals. Natural forces within us are the true healer of diseases.” . . . . . #mamabaresall
