That moment when you look over and see three of the most precious things snuggled up together and your heart erupts with so much love and tears of gratefulness stream down your face. 
These moments are some of the most precious moments. 
Jesus, help me to savor these moments. Thank You for these sweet blessings that made me a mommy. May I love and guide them well. Amen

Is there anything sweeter?πŸ’ž
Those little hands and little baby breaths. My heart is outside my body all bundled in this sweet babe and my four other "babies".
Do they ever stop being our "babies"?

After an insane morning of lots of meltdowns and general grumpiness, I finally got my workout in. --
He joined me for the whole thing and even though I was seriously struggling, we finished together!
--
And I have to say I feel so much better than I did before. More calm and grounded and less stressed!

When you tell your kids to smile lol!
--
But seriously I am beyond grateful to be their mama!
--
It's hard, it's frustrating, but it's also incredibly rewarding. It fills up my heart every single day.
It makes me stronger and wiser. And I hope I am making as much of a positive impact on them as they do on me.
--
Let's celebrate ourselves as mamas! We work hard, we give it our all and we do our best!

These are my 5 year old's muddy handprints on the wall.
--
Some parents would probably look at this and be angry at their child. Tonight I am looking at them and I am angry with myself.
--
I was not on my mom game today. Our day was off, I never got back on track.
--
These handprints tell me I didn't connect enough today. I wasn't present enough. Of course I knew these things before I discovered this.
--
These handprints say: 'I'm not feeling secure!'
'I needed you more today.'
'Don't give up on me.'
--
I am thinking about the ways I could have done better today and hope to learn from this and apply them tomorrow.
--
Of course I don't expect to be perfect every day, but as I wipe these prints away and see the clean wall, I see a clean slate for tomorrow and it gives me hope and so much gratitude that tomorrow will be a new (and better) dayπŸ’œ

Being a mama is tough. 
It's hard to know how to handle every situation that comes along.
--
It's hard have compassion when one gets hurt after the 300th time you've told the kids to stop doing the dangerous thing they are doing.
--
It's hard to focus on them and only them, when your mind keeps running over your to-do list.
--
But it's also SO rewarding.
It's rewarding when one kid is hurt and the other one comes to check on them and asks 'are you ok?'
--
It's rewarding when they give you a hug and tell you they love you without any prompting.
--
It's rewarding when they want you to help them with their science kit and you both put on your super awesome safety glasses πŸ˜‚
--
It's rewarding in so many ways that are often overlooked but should be celebrated.
--
To all the amazing mamas out there- we are in this together πŸ’œπŸ’œ β€’

This has become a new favorite at our house for breakfast!
--
I wanted something dairy free/gluten free but also egg free and filling and this is delicious!
--
This is Chocolate chia seed pudding! Did you know chia seeds are super nutrient dense and gives your body energy boosting power?! In fact, Aztec warriors ate chia seeds to give them high energy and endurance!
--
Chia seeds are rich in fiber, omega-3 fats, protein, vitamins and minerals!
--
So this is a pretty perfect breakfast!
--
Ingredients:
1 C coconut milk (or almond)
1 can full fat coconut milk
1/2 C chia seeds 
1.5 Tbs maple syrup 
2-4 pitted dates (optional)
2-4 Tbs cocoa powder (to taste)
2 tsp vanilla
A pinch of Himalayan salt
--
Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth.
--
Alternatively you could combine all ingredients with a whisk and let sit in the refrigerator for a few hours. This will make the consistency more like tapioca pudding.
--
Top with sliced banana, strawberries, granola, etc! 
Enjoy!

Getting outside time is so important for us. We need the vitamin D and fresh air.
--
We are loving our garden this year too! My husband put in a ton of time making our garden boxes and landscaping everything!
--
Our food is finally growing too! I would love to be able to grow all our own food, but at least this is a start!

Today was such a full day! --
Workout, ToysRUs, local festival by the waterfront, nap, cleaning the back porch in 86* weather, back to ToysRUs, checked out some RV's, dinner, bed.
--
It was fun and I enjoyed the day (mostly) but towards the end of dinner I found myself getting super stressed out.
--
Bedtime is late
The house is a disaster
Dishes are in the sink
Things are lost
Toddler melting down
1 million questions of "why?"
--
I was feeling so frustrated, angry and just stressed. I had to just stop.
--
Stop focusing on the negative. Find gratitude in the fun day we had. It wasn't perfect, but it was filled with many wonderful moments that deserve to be remembered and not swept away with worry and stress.
--
It's definitely valid to feel all of that but it's so much nicer to focus on the positive. I forced myself to think of 5 moments today I am grateful for and I feel so much better now.
--
In case you're wondering:
1. C comforting G when he didn't feel good saying "I'll make you feel better Gage." And finding him little toys to play with.
2. Watching the kids pretend to drive/race the power wheels and see how much joy it brought them.
3. Finishing my workout all the way, even though I didn't think I could do it.
4. Seeing dear friends and spending time with them (including one I randomly ran into!)
5. Wearing G in the Tula for the first time in a VERY long time (though that was quite uncomfortable after about 15 minutes lol)β€’

The kids and I are so lucky to have him and are forever grateful for all the hard work he does both at work and then at home.

He's an amazing daddy and husband (even when I kind of fail at being a wife!)

Why do I post about my workout everyday?
--
It's to show you it's totally doable! I know what you're thinking. You're too busy. Too tired. Too many things on the to-to list.
--
I know the excuses we'll because I had all of the same ones. But I decided enough was enough and I wanted to be as healthy as I could be.
--
Now it's almost been a year since I started working out and no end in sight. You can do it! You are worth it!

We all have good days and bad days.
--
I know I always feel better when I start my day with a good workout. It gets the blood moving (I always run cold, so it's nice to warm up!) it gets me out of my head for a little while, and it makes me feel like I can get through anything.
--
If you find yourself struggling, find a way to get some exercise in! And if you need a place to start, I would love to help. The more we do it together, the more we stick to it!

What do you do when you wake up later than you should and don't feel like doing anything??
--
Put on your workout clothes and get it done! Tell yourself you'll do 5 minutes and hopefully that 5 minutes turns into completing the whole thing. But even if it doesn't 5 minutes is better than 0!

What calms your toddlers when they are overtired and just done?
--
For mine, it's nursing. It is the cure all for just about everything at this age.
--
We had an extra early start this morning and she was in MAJOR meltdown mode. Luckily she calmed right down and fell asleep.

Is there anything sweeter?πŸ’ž
Those little hands and little baby breaths. My heart is outside my body all bundled in this sweet babe and my four other "babies".
Do they ever stop being our "babies"?

Whew. I almost didn't make it to Friday.😴
This week has been haaaard y'all. I protested BIG time about getting out of bed and putting on adult pants today.πŸ˜©πŸ™ˆ
I totally wanted to hit snooze and take a vacay....
But we all know moms don't get days off.😜
Peppermint and lemon are definitely going in the diffuser this morning.πŸŒΏπŸ‹
And I'm going to go drench myself in some peace and calming and maybe a mommy timeout later on today.... also known as naptime.πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‚

Morning car vibes...πŸš™β˜”οΈ
Every morning after school drop off, I pull into the driveway and SIT. I soak up the baby bliss while it lasts and answer emails, check in with groups, prep for a class...
But mainly I enjoy the quiet before the double kiddo storm. Breakfast, nursing baby, who to get out first.... sometimes both are crying, sometimes one... but it always a bit stressful.
I mentally prepare myself for the day. Take lots of cleansing deep breaths. Say a little prayer.
Mommin ain't easy but it is my greatest joy.
My greatest role.
And of course I drink the coffee.
Then I do all the things.😘

These cuties got to put 'frosting' (coconut cream mixed with honey and cinnamon) on their gluten free/vegan cookies and were so happy. C says 'thank you' all on her own every day, no prompting required and it's SO Adorable!
