Today is trying. I think of my husband and the ever expansive wound he carries now. I’ve been down the road he’s currently on and it never gets easier; you become more complacent as the years pass, but there is always a sense of heartache pressed against you. I am fortunate enough to say that there was a light at the end of my tunnel, but I am unsure if the light will ever shine again in this case. I do know that I feel deeply grateful for the man and father he has become, despite what has transpired these past couple of years. He is stronger, he is kinder, he is filled with unrelenting love and he is everything to his son and myself. I won’t begin to understand why or how, but I do know he’s not at fault and that their pain is not his to carry any longer. Yes, we celebrate all mothers today but let us not forget about the motherless children, the women who yearn to be a mother, the sons and daughters who are estranged from their mothers, the mothers who have lost their children, and the women who have chosen a path that doesn’t end in children. ❤️

Even the bad days are good with my little bear. He is the best part about me and I am so lucky to be his mama. #imadehimfromscratch

Ollie’s 1st swim class! I did pretty well as a sideline parent until he started going underwater...I felt like I was watching someone go into labor, holding my breath as he went under 😂🤦🏼‍♀️🐠🐳 #justkeepswimming

And as I playback this video, he’s said Papa three times 🙄 #toddlerlife

I wasn’t going to post any progress photos until my half way mark, but I looked in the mirror after my resistance workout and noticed some definition in my tummy! And I quite literally snapped this photo to show my hubby (and @joemarcy to prove I am not preggo!), but I wanted to share with all the women (especially the mamas) who are finding it hard to do anything for themselves. I’ve recently discovered I have postpartum depression, which has been really trying. In order to feel better mentally, I knew I needed to move physically. A month ago, I started using the @sweat app and I am starting to feel more light through the darkness. If you’re feeling the mommy blues and want to try working out again, the #bbg program might be for you. You never have to leave the comfort of your room, your kid can crawl all over you while you workout (because they will want to do that) and each workout is only 28 minutes. This is not an ad, just a relatively new mama letting you know you’re not alone. We are strong, we are fierce, we are women and we got this 💪🏼❤️

May Friday the 13th bring you all as much luck as it brought me 6 months ago when I got to marry this goofball in Ireland.🍀❤️🍀

It hasn’t always been easy with 14 years between us. But I have always felt grateful to know how loved they are, I have always been slightly jealous of the bond they’ll both share for the rest of their lives, I have always loved them near or from afar, I always wanted them, I have always cherished each moment spent with them, I will continue to be here for them, I look forward to many more adventures together and I will always be proud to call them my sisters. I love you both so very much. #nationalsiblingday

I call this piece: Diaper Rash // Calculated Risk

Hi, I’m Oliver Kai. I love to point out airplanes in the sky almost as much as I love bath time. I’ve started to take my diaper off, so that should be pretty fun for mama soon....what walls to paint, ammiright? I believe I am Moana reincarnated because I recently just dove head first into the sea and couldn’t understand why my mom and dad wouldn’t let me keep doing it. I may be 15 months, but watch out ladies my doctor said I am the size of a 2 1/2 year old...and in case you thought I was all looks, she also said my brain is working at a 2 year old stage. But I won’t let all of this go to my (very large, I mean have you seen that thing?) head, my mama and papa keep me humble. I am chomping at the bit to play with people my own size and by chomping, I mean chomping...the first step is admiring you have a problem, right? The doc says I should grow out of this soon, so real play dates are on the horizon. For now, my mama has enrolled me in music and SWIMMING classes! I can’t wait to share my new adventures with all of you. xoxo, Goss... I mean Oliver.
