Keeping it classy with my Be Classy by @jujube_intl! Sometimes you gotta ditch the jeans and backpack to doll up and enjoy these dreamy Seattle days! It can be tempting to just get through the chaotic days but it's so important to feel feminine, strong and refreshed about who you are apart from being a mom...even if diapers and toys live in your purse! It'll look different for every mama, but I love me a dress, heels and date with the husband! You? Thanks Ju-Ju-Be for thoughtful creations that enhance the multifaceted life of #motherhood .

When I say Zelda is the happiest baby I have ever met, I am not exaggerating.
Sometimes #motherhood is watching your kids have the time of their lives splashing in a stream in the mountains, and other times it is holding a baby and a toddler while they meltdown during a tour... .
I have come to a point where I am okay with both. These are my littles and at times they just need their momma. And while it is more enjoyable when they're excited to show me how much fun life is, I am grateful to be there when it is because they can't even, not even for one more moment.

Doing a happy dance cause I can fit into a pair of jeans again 👖Postpartum isn't fun. Nope, there's nothing glamorous about mesh underwear, adult diapers or padsicles, that's right I said padsicles 🙈
Soooo thankful I'm past that part. But I've still been wearing my @bellefit corset. The first couple of days PP I just felt so soft and jello-y that I thought all my organs were going to fall out of me. But it's really helped get everything back to its rightful place and I no longer feel like a busted can of pillsbury biscuits 🙌🏾 .
Parents, what did you earn stickers for today?
I earned one for peeing in private, one for only buying 8 things (I don't actually need ) at Target, two for shaving each leg all the way up to my knees, a bunch for semi-patiently answering 892 "why" questions from a 3-year-old, and one for not getting knocked up.

One last stop on the Oregon coast before we make our way back to Seattle for the last few days of our trip. Traveling with a toddler has definitely been challenging and a true test of patience (plus I got my period so #exhausted ) -- but I'm so thankful to experience all these new places with my little family 💪🏻#BEAXPNW

Yesterday, we had a Teddy Bear's Picnic themed party with our gigantic family to celebrate our 3 bears turning 3, 1 & 1 🐻🐻🐻 I had an absolute #mumwin with making their cake & was pretty chuffed with myself (got to celebrate those rare moments! 💁🏻). It was great to be able to celebrate the 3 birthdays together (whilst they're too young to complain 🙊), but after making 4 cakes over the last few weeks, I'm grateful there aren't anymore birthdays for a while 🙊
This might seem like an odd picture to post but it has a great story. I have said before, I am a schedule person. Even though we play each day by ear depending on weather or apts, I still usually have a plan for that day. On Thursday my husband was renting a car and driving out of town to a convention, so we dropped him off at Enterprise. I had planned for us to go straight home to start school because we had our @wildandfree.co group that afternoon. But the morning was so beautiful. I felt God saying enjoy this moment. Everyone was happy and smiling. So we went thru Starbucks for a coffee and snack; then I put on praise and worship music. We drove around, sang our hearts out and talked about God's love and plan. We had one of our deepest conversations . I watched their little faces glow with love singing right along to those songs. I even saw tears of joy in my eldest 7yr old boys' eyes. He was dancing and smiling. This was a morning that I will never forget and I am sure one my children will remember also. Perhaps we did not start school "according to plan" and we had to do some work that evening but I was teaching something more important. I was teaching their souls and forming their hearts. *
I love watching my children connect as friends. They just melt my heart big time. My hope and prayer is that as they continue to grow, they will become life long best friends. I love these two with all my heart and soul! My family is definitely my greatest blessing in life. ❤️❤️❤️
