These are my ride or dies right here. Its almost been five years with one of them, you guess who, and in those five years we have argued, probably wanted to end each other, just being real, and bickered like two 70 year old men, BUT we have grown so much together, faced giants together and have created one of the cutest beings Ive ever laid eyes on! PS, thats were RD gets his eyes from. 😍 . #motherhood #thisismotherhood #momlife #honestmotherhood #mom #momstyle #motherhoodsimplified #thehappynow #ig_motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #honestlymothering #watchthemgrow #momsofinstagram #momstruggles #momoffour #boymom

Summer come back! We miss you 😭

We have a harvest! 😂 david found these by the new electric pole that was recently put in. The plant ID group Im in says either radish or turnip! Thanks Empire 😉😂 Ive heard roasted radish is super good. May have to try with these!

MOPS started up again today for me! We were blessed with an amazing guest speaker. And I got to wear this ultra comfy dress from @elleebelleco!!! Gonna need to put leggings and a cardigan for warm layers soon. . . . . . #findyourfire #bettermomsbetterworld #shorelinemops #mops #california #CA #finditliveit #momstyle #ootd #thegivingkeys #elleebellecollective #motherhoodrising #motherhood #lifestyle #monterey #fashionbloggers #candidmotherhood #momlife #thisismotherhood

Today’s weather makes me want to stay outside all day! 🍁 🍂 ☀️ We got in walks, parks and a picnic lunch. Now while they both nap, I’ll be ignoring my messy kitchen & recharging my own batteries. #getoutside #fallweather #boymom #parkdays #love #thisismotherhood #bros #lovecolorado #mommyslittlepeanut #babyteeth

The smallest step in the right direction can turn out to be the biggest step of your life💕 . . Everyday we make small and sometimes big decisions that affect our life. After feeling so stuck and depressed for what felt like a lifetime I hit rock bottom and had to do something about it. I NEEDED to change my outlook on life. Life has been far from easy for me as I faced many challenges in my 30years. . . One of the best decisions I made was to take a chance on myself! I took small steps learning how to eat healthy meals that are nutritionally balanced and I got my body moving! The saying you are one workout away from a good mood holds so much truth! The more I ate healthy and the more I worked out my mood started to improve drastically because of the way I felt! Yes I was losing weight and that also boosted my confidence but using food as fuel and exercise was what I needed all along! . . I managed to lose 50lbs over 2.5 years. But this last month I haven’t been eating the healthiest and I’ve been slacking on my exercise. I really started to feel it because I was getting bloated, having mood swings and gained a few lbs back. But Monday I made the decision to get back on track so I can finally hit my next goal! I’ve been maintaining for the last 5 months but I’m ready to dig a little deeper! I added in kickboxing to go along with my beachbody workouts! It’s been so much fun! . . Decide to take a leap...and believe that you can soar! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #transformationtuesday #transformyourself #beforeandafterweightloss #betterme #bettereveryday #learntoloveyourself #momstrong #motherofboys #madeinmn #midwestmom #thisismotherhood #minnesotamom #inspiremothers #anxietywarrior #sweatsforlife #ownyourstory #makehealthyahabit #thefitlife #livetoday #dirtythirtyclub #workingonme #resultsdontlie #lifestylechanges #liveoutloud

Not even two and already drives like a dude 🙄 . . . Every day my kids teach me something new about the world and myself. Now, I’m about as excited to see a plane soaring overhead or watch a bird gliding across the lake as they are. Cresting waves fascinate me; crabs darting across the sand make me scream and giggle; new parks and bike rides excite my muse. I’m not sure when I lost my enchantment of simple things, or even when I began to consider these things simple🤔 But either way, I’m thoroughly savoring my renaissance, so thanks little munchkins 😘😘

I’ve been spoiled by this child and her incredible sleep patterns ... since she was born 3 weeks ago (wait...how has it been 3 weeks already?!😰) she has slept in 4 hour chunks at night, so we consistently get 8 hours of sleep a night. 🌟 On weekends she’ll go for another 3 hours after I nurse her in the mornings, which lets us have a lazy, snuzzly, wuddly morning in bed (pictured above😅) 🌟 I’ve gotten the comment several times now when out in public with her that I seem “so calm” and “peaceful”. I’m not positive but I feel pretty certain that this is partly due to the fact that I am in love with her and that I’m blissfully basking in a pool of motherhood’s light and partly due to the fact that I’m ridiculously well rested to the point that I don’t even take naps during the day😂 🌟 It’s so great, and I feel like we won the lottery...however I’m also thinking that sweet Paloma Rose might leave us ill-prepared for whatever a future sibling might have in store🤔 🌟 For now though, I’m gonna keep right on enjoying this wonderful time of restful sleep and newborn bliss🌝😌🌟 #babybgg #mypalomarose

“Find your tribe, and love them hard!” 💛 _________________ Friendship has been a tricky thing for me to figure out. In every season of life, I’ve stumbled through friendships without much understanding of what a healthy friendship looks like. With marriage and motherhood, time for friendship grew smaller and smaller even though the need for it grew bigger and bigger. My advice: ____________ Don’t take so long to invite new friends over for soup. ____________ Be the kind of friend you’d like to have. ____________ Put the babies to bed and have a girls night... with cheesecake. ____________ Talk to your friends on the phone. (This is a lost art, let’s bring it back.) ____________ Love your friends kids/family well. ____________ Build each other up JUST BECAUSE. ____________ Thank you @christie_burton and @hannadingler for teaching me how to be a good friend everyday. Y’all are the best gifts. 💛

Napping for two 💙 . I saw a bunch of other preggos posting about this c-shaped pillow and I HAD to get one because I’ve been having so much trouble sleeping during this pregnancy…especially with London in our bed kicking me all night! . When I pulled this beauty out of the package, it inflated into a thick bean bag/fluffy pillow! And it’s AH-MAZING! I have it supporting my back so I stay on my side all night (something I have trouble doing), between my legs to keep everything aligned, and blocking my belly from my flailing toddler! It’s a pregnancy must-have so I had to jump on the bandwagon and share with you ladies! Plus, it’s totally affordable! Head over to @pharmedoc and get one!!! . The only downside is that I am literally fighting London for it. She keeps climbing in bed and saying “I love my pillow.” Ummm no girlfriend, it’s mine! #25weekspregnant #babyboyontheway #pregnantbelly #pharmedoc #pregnancyprobs #secondtrimester #dueinjanuary #myhonestmotherhood

Soooo in love with this smile 😍😍 even though he smiles like a gremlin 😂 My little man all dressed up, gel in his hair and ready for a night out.

My baby sister is turning 3-0 today! When I turned 30 she ran around Minneapolis in a bunny onesie. . Since I am the older, wiser and don’t have a bunny onesie, I am soliciting your help in ushering her into the 30s club! What have you loved/did you love about your 30s?

Happy birthday to this hottie with a baby. Don’t think I didn’t also get a matching bathing suit. But today isn’t about me. Because Ezra’s dad is OFFICIALLY OLD today. Ezra didn’t exactly get your hair, and he most definitely got my attitude. But he did get the best role model and dad he could have ever been given. Today he’s celebrating your birth, and soon we’ll all share some cake! We love you so much today and ERRDAY!

We love our pillow spray before bedtime. 😴 its a good routine for the kids to wind down and they love it! We have lavender, cedarwood, orange and valor in ours...dare I say, it works like a dream. 😏 . . . . . #youngliving #essentialoils #connectessentials #1422273 #naturalsolutions #supportyourbody #wellness #chemicalfree #sleep #rest #pillowspray #kids #thisismotherhood #bedtime #routine

🕯Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light.- Albus Dumbledore 💡 . The wizarding world of Harry Potter ⚡️ was alive today during the Warner Bros. Tour! The effects and attention to detail to bring the world to life was incredible! . So, I saw every single movie 🎥 , but only read books 1, 2, 6, and 7 📚! . Did you read the whole Harry Potter series? Which was your favorite??

I wanted to share with you abit about Ellas breastfeeding journey. It wasnt easy. By the time she was born I had been nursing for 4 years, I tandem fed her older siblings through her pregnancy. I had this down. We were never going to have any problems. I knew what I was doing. Then she was born 5 weeks early. That changed everything. Dangerously low blood sugar levels resulted in her admittance to NICU nil by mouth on a drip. I tried fo express for her but I was tired. I hate that pump. My body painful after our umplanned surgery. I couldnt pump enough for them to wean her drip and so we gave her formula. By the time we had left NICU 6 days later she was latching to the breast and I thought we were fine. Except despite her latch she just didnt know how to feed. She suckled until she fell asleep and was difficult to wake. She lost weight. We were advised to give expressed milk top ups but I was too drained to keep up the pumping so we topped up with formula. Still she lost weight. Failure to thrive. I had peer supporters out. I had a lactation consultant out. They said I was doing everything right but still she lost weight. I felt such sadness. My mental health began to dive. I gave her a bottle. She guzzled it down. She began to put on weight. I felt relief. That would have been the end of our breastfeeding journey there if it wasnt for Evie still having mum milk and maintaining my supply. Gradually over months we managed to get her drinking from the breast and eventually at 5 months she didnt need her bottles anymore. I am shareing this because I know so many mothers feel such sadness that their feeding journeys were cut short. I know so many women who tell themselves they failed when they tried with everything they had. Breastfeeding isnt easy. Sometimes it doesnt work out and it isnt your fault if that was the case. Sometimes even when you have 4 years experience and you think you have this down your baby just doesnt understand how to feed. Sometimes giving fornula is what is best and that is ok.

Insta-friends look at this gorgeous tigereye hazelwood necklace from @hazelaid 💕💕💕 . I originally went on to purchase Amber teething/eczema relief necklaces for the kids but lets be real: mama needed one too! . Go check our their stuff. You wont be disappointed. 😉 . . . .

The truth is motherhood is hard. Being a mother is one of the hardest things I have ever done. But it’s also beautiful. And peaceful. And hectic and wild and free. | I have this idea brewing. I don’t know what it is yet. I can feel it morphing into something big, something exciting. But right now it’s a tiny little seed in the form of self portraits of motherhood. We’ll see where this goes. Right now I just know I’m excited about whatever it is.

In a world where you can be anything be KIND this is the truest shirt Ive ever worn. And definitely the softest! There is so much hate and sadness in this world and in peoples lives. The least we can do is be kind to every soul. I use to hold such a harsh judgment in my head of people, it weighs heavy on a person. But I grew up some, I had my son and everything changed. You cant judge, its not your place and what does it matter to you if someone decides to live their life a different way from you? Just. Be. Kind. . . .

You’re a wife, you’re a mom, you’ve got a full-time job , you volunteer at church, you’re part of the PTA, you’re a part time #bossbabe , and you do allll the other things.⁣ BUT, are you you’re number one priority?⁣ 🗣 Moms, if you’re not you’re number one priority you’ve really got to rearrange some things. YOU are number one always(with God at the forefront), husband is number two, than your children, and then the whole rest of the world. ⁣ ⁣ Simply making the time to put you ahead of everything else will allow you to be the BEST version of yourself for everyone else. No matter what it is that you need to do to take time for YOU today, mama I challenge you to do it‼️⁣ ⁣ #selflove #selflovefirst #noexcusemom #bossbabe #marriagegoals #motherhustler #lovememe #momsofgirls

This week as been hard. The kind of hard where your friend finds you on your back porch because your toddler is physically trying to break the door down to avoid her nap. : There have been little breaks but big breakdowns, little sleep and a lot of sleepiness, little patience and a ton of prayer. : I don’t have the answers to hard seasons like this or the drive to find the silver lining of it all but what I do have is appreciation. : Appreciation for my husband who forced me to go for a run last night despite wanting to eat my feelings away. For a sweet friend that let me leave my kids in the car (car on) and chat with her uninterrupted for 15 minutes in the driveway. For my dad who reminds me to have grace on myself in seasons of transition. For the friend who stopped me mid sentence and blurred out “ you are a GOOD mom- you might know it, but I just feel like you needed to hear it”. And I did. : I guess I believe life is allowed to be “hard” sometimes but there is something about community and honesty and the diversity of peoples giftings that can be so refreshing in the midst of it. The end. : : : : : #joyfulmamas #legitmomstyle #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodco #motherhoodinstyle #momtographer #momliferocks #inspirationintheeveryday #dailymotherhood #rawmotherhood #candidmotherhood #momsirl #thisismotherhood #unitedmotherhood #slowmotherhood #bloggermom #momgoals #modernmom #momcrushmonday #holdthemoments  #honestparenting #nestingly #teammotherly #mommasheart #lovemomblog #literalmomgoals

I have so many pictures like this of Finn where the light hits in the most amazing way. I think its bc hes filled with some light the camera doesnt know how to react. . . Happy 6th Birthday to my sweet sonshine☀️ I cant wait to crawl into bed with him tonight and celebrate all his awesomeness tomorrow ❤️

Thank you @aahales for talking to us this morning about How to Find Holy in the Suburbs! Your reminders to Walk with, Eat with, and Give to others in our community truly are the first steps to changing the world with one small kind act after another.

I could use some more warm summer days actually ☀️🤧 #september #sick #summer

Y’all...remember when I was flying high yesterday? Well, this afternoon has been one. Have you ever found yourself frustrated as hell with yourself for neglecting to do something EASY but now completely in a hot mess because you didn’t do it? Like, in a totally crappy yet absolutely avoidable situation just because you procrastinated? . Ugh. Brings me back to high school. Anyone else? . If you need me, I’ll just be over here trying to figure out some logistics for how I’m going to power through this work week. This is where creative problem-solving comes into play...wish me luck 😬 . In other news, at least I’m making progress in getting her to smile for pics with me! It’s all about the tummy tickle for this girl lol 💕 . . . . . #motherhoodunveiled #candidmoments #lifeofaworkingmom #babiesdontkeep #mixedracebabiesig #mygirlmyworld #mamadiaries #girlmama #ig_motherhood #themotherhoodcorner #momentsofmine #motherhoodunfiltered #honestmom #keepinstagramreal #honestmotherhood #storytellingmama #thisismotherhood #motherhoodlens #momszone #momhustler #atlmoms #parenthoodsquad #memoirsofmotherhood #workingmomlife #workingmama #businessmom #mommydiaries #mywildmotherhood #bloggermom #parentingjourney

🎈It’s DROP DAY! 🎈Set your alarms for 6PM MST because there are very limited quantities of each style! ⏰ I love using pre-loved fabric because each bonnet is unique, but it also means that I can’t make more when I run out of a particular style. So be quick and choose your favorite first! There will be some ready to ship, and some made-to-order available, and as always PLEASE SIZE YOUR BABE before purchasing:) sizing chart is available in my highlights! Check out my stories and then come back and tell me which one you are hoping to snag! 🎈 Good luck everyone, and thank you all again. I appreciate every one of you, truly. ✨

I was lucky enough to have the wonderful bond & experience of nursing my 4th baby photographed by @vanmorris_photography last night. I never thought theyd be photos I would want and treasure but I have them from my other children too and theyre some of my favourite. In the tiring days of those first few months, sometimes its hard to remember how wonderful feeding is when youre in the midst of it.

Think you cant get an awesome workout in in 30 minutes or less?! Think you cant get an effective workout in at home?!? Well friends,you’ll have to hang out with some of my favorite trainers to see for yourself! You show up, work one on one, root your virtual gym friends on and get it done! I didn’t have to wear shoes today, my sweet baby was crashed hard after her fun morning and I had 30 minutes that I was looking forward to. My online library gives me the schedule and program to follow as well as the way to eat to fuel my results! Make time for the things you need and want to do! Dont tell yourself you cant, because I know you can. Why should you make some time to exercise today?!?!? Well, Ill give you like 10 reasons!!! Because..... 1. It makes you feel confident. 2. It helps you get stronger. 3. It helps combat depression. 4. You will feel proud of yourself. 5. You have goals you want to reach. 6. You will be more grumpy if you dont! 7. You want to move forward, not backwards. 8. It burns more calories than just thinking about it. 9. It improves your heart health. 10. You want to look great in your favorite jeans. So now, put your workout time and program on the calendar for the day and dont cancel that appointment! There comes a mighty, steep cancellation fee, YOUR WELL BELING!

I’ve shared a bit about how this relocation to Mass has affected me personally. It hasn’t been easy. Of course leaving family and friends has been the hardest thing about this move. But the second hardest thing about this move is figuring out how to take care of myself again. My whole “self-care” routine has been thrown out of whack, and I’ve been slowly piecing it together again. I also have to accept that here I can’t recreate all of the things I had in Minnesota that brought balance into my life like: my part-time jobs that complimented my time as a stay-at-home mom so perfectly, my gym that was five minutes down the road, the amazing classes and instructors at my gym, Taekwondo classes as a family, our church and the community we were a part of there, and of course being able to see our local friends, parents, siblings, nieces and nephews whenever we wanted to see them. These things were all part of my “self-care”. So now I find myself back to where I was a little less than two years ago questioning, “How do I take care of myself?” At the end of the day after giving my all to my family so that my husband can focus on this amazing career opportunity and so that my kids can excel at school and in life, what can I say that I was able to do for myself too? We have a responsibility to take care of ourselves too. So why is it so hard to find the time and energy to do so? I’ve found that for me, the best way to practice self-care is not to stay up late binging on Netflix, although that is certainly enjoyable sometimes. It’s not going to Target alone, although yes that is amazing too. And it’s not hiding in a closet from my children while stuffing Oreos into my mouth, which, yes, I do that occasionally because mama needs some Oreos every now and then. These are quick fixes, and quick fixes don’t last long. So I’m back to square one with focusing on my health as part of my self care. After a few months off of working out, I’m back at it. And it feels oh so good. And thank goodness I have my tribe cheering me on, because it’s never easy starting over again! I’m sure some of you are saying, “me too, girl.” So how about we do this together?

THIS. I love everything about this photo. The squishy thigh chub. The string of drool dripping down her body. The mid-arm creases. The saggy diaper. That look of pure joy while she plays with her Daddy. I come back to photos like these and remind myself how utterly blessed I am to have this healthy {mostly} happy little one. Shes looking less and less like a newborn these days and more like a toddler. And I have to admit, I dont mind it. Give me alllll the smiles and coos. #12weeksold #thisismotherhood #hoorayforhalligan

Not feeling 100% and my back is still recovering from sleeping in a tent for the weekend...so it was a little yoga and worship music with my mini me. .. I’m not going to lie, I used to hate yoga. But, I’ve really come to appreciate what it does for my body. I’m no where near a yogi but my relationship with yoga has come a long way. Plus, C likes to join which I always love 🧘🏻‍♀️🧘🏻‍♀️

Just washing all the drool, milk, and spit up away. No complaints here! ✨⁣ #thelovedgift

A day in the life of a working stay at home is now live on the blog link in bio 🧡 It can be hard to juggle but it’s allllll about routine- a mama’s gotta do what a mama’s gotta do! #mumlife

Full disclosure, this is a little flashback to several days ago when everyone was well. Were still nursing a sore throat and coughs over here and Im just praying that I can avoid it and keep it away from the littlest. BUT, I wanted to share anyway, because Ive got a new post up this week about balancing both boys schedules and how we prioritize what around here & I hope youll check it out. Its got lots of good tips to juggle competing demands of multiple kids...and spoiler alert - baby wearing with @babyktan is STILL in my top tips list. We love it so much. But, if Ive learned anything, its that schedules are constantly shifting around - especially in this season so we celebrate everyday and stay flexible most of all. What are your top tips to juggle everyones schedule?

I could bullet point some of the different goals Ive set in life and the outcome: •find a husband 😂✅ •get a degree ✅ •have kids ✅ •learn to love myself FULLY ✅ •be completely free from diet culture ✅ •become the healthiest version of myself ✅ •help other woman find that freedom and love too ✅ . Its harder to bullet proof the journey between the dreaming and goal setting and actually attaining what I had envisioned, to describe what happened to my CHARACTER and inner self in the pursuit of those goals . All I can say is holy heck I am SO thankful I got comfortable with being uncomfortable in the pursuit 💞 . You can keep watching me run my virtual gym, helping other women & myself continually pursue our goals or you can BECOME one of us 😉💞 . I cant wait to see where you are 8 weeks from today 💫

Oh man y’all. Soooo many good ones from this newborn session this past weekend. Can not wait to share them! These mama baby snuggles get me every time!!

Today is Eleanor’s first day in her toddler classroom. She greeted her new teacher with a wave, meanwhile I’m spending the day trying to figure out ways to be a SAHM....seriously. I just want to watch her eat leaves all day. Why can’t I get paid to do that... or at the very least affordable healthcare? 🤷🏻‍♀️🍂 Also... the pigtails are killin’ me. 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thisismotherhood #mamahood #mamastakenote #workingmomstruggles #momguilt #aTrueLookatMotherhood #momsofig #celebrate_motherhood #mywildmotherhood #momlife #documentmotherhood #motherhoodrising #ig_motherhood #myoneyearold #sweetbabygirl #itsfallyall

When you live in an apartment on the top floor you make due with the space you have! A dream of ours is to finally put our roots down and settle into our own house. Not for us but to share it with others. A place where we can build a longer table, not a higher fence. A place where our babies can run safe in a yard with all the other littles from the neighborhood. One of these days✨I believe it!✨ In the mean time, we are going to enjoy our little space to its fullest. Even if that means riding our tricycle in circles on our balcony 🌿🍓 #oubraveavery . . . #thatsdarling #instagrammamas #liveauthentic #honestmotherhood #letthembelittle #ig_motherhood #mamabird #lovewhereyoulive #ohheymama #Candidchildhood #Mom_hub #Documentingmotherhood #letthembelittle #holdthemoments #ig_kids #documentyourday #Thisismotherhood #Momlife #Childhoodunplugged #Documentlife #Thisislife #Livethelittlethings #Motherhoodsimplified #Slowmotherhood #Theartofslowliving #Ig_motherhood #bedeeplyrooted #babiesdontkeep #unitedmotherhood

🌿Almost Two Months from Two🌿 When I think about Islas birthday and how fast she is growing up it simultaneously makes my heart swell with joy and break at the same time ❤ I keep finding myself reflecting on photos of the tiny baby I once knew. She has become such a little girl the past few months. Finally hearing her sweet thoughts aloud - the little things she wants to tell me about as her speech just explodes is amazing. Learning all about her dear little heart as she grows more and more into her own and not just my little baby is magical. ✨ She brings more pure happiness to this life than I ever could have imagined. My only wish is that I could whisper back in time to the very lost, hurting soul I once was: She is coming, and the world will be so much brighter than you could possibly dream.🍃

“The cure for everything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.” Isak Dinesen ◾️ Hubby sent me out for a sunset run along the sea after he got home and got to hear all about my shambolic day. So yes to salt water. ✔️✔️ That and coming home to two fast-asleep boys. 🙌🏻💃🏻🎉 #thisismotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #threenager #nobullshitmotherhood . . . . . #bbg #bbgmoms #bbgmums #bbgcommunity #bbguk #bbgover35 #kaylaitsines #wannabeyogi #yoga #yogaalmosteverydamnday #healthyliving #momofboys #runningmom #fitmom #postpartum #running #5k #runningtherapy #fitness #fitspo #fitnessmotivation #fitspiration #momlife #motherhood #strongformyfamily

Doing our reading lesson outside today while Emmett played in the sandbox. He was feeling frustrated when I wanted him to sit next to me to go through the lesson. So we adjusted + I had him run back + forth between me + the sandbox for the oral + visual parts of the lesson. . Did you know sensory activities aid in a child’s ability to learn?!! I found this list of benefits via @meghykes blog . ☝🏼 Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction. . ✌🏼This type of play aids in developing and enhancing memory . 🤟🏼Sensory play is great for calming an anxious or frustrated child . No wonder we finished the lesson in record time without anymore sadness or complaint. Gahhh!! I love that homeschooling allows us to shift + adjust according to our babies needs. 🙌🏻🎉

If you’re a mom, you know how exhausting it can get, and today I’d like to remind you to take care of yourself . Because your kids need a healthy mama. When you fly on an airplane , they tell you , that in case of an emergency, if the oxygen masks drop , make sure to place one on yourself , before helping others . Why ? Because if you aren’t feeling well, you can’t help anyone else . Same with us my fellow mamas . A little more than a week ago , I ended up in Emergency because of an excruciating pain in my hand . The pain was unbearable. It’s been hurting me for a while , but I’ve ignored it because I didn’t have time for myself . The tendon and joint got terribly inflamed . I couldn’t move my right arm , couldn’t even dress myself . Of course realized how many things I take for granted . Thank God , the medication helped and I’m doing better . But I realized that I won’t be able to serve my family if I don’t take care of myself . If you’re like me and feel guilty of leaving kids with a babysitter for that one hour , please remember that your kids need you to be healthy and happy. #literalmomgoals #joyfulmamas #legitmomstyle #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodco #motherhoodinstyle #momtographer #momliferocks #inspirationintheeveryday #dailymotherhood #rawmotherhood #candidmotherhood #momsirl #thisismotherhood #unitedmotherhood
