My sweeties. . . Josie was giving Frederick a kiss. 🥰 She has been SO good with Frederick and I don't know why I worried at all. . . Well.. I know there is more to come. Today Josephine saw Frederick with one of her toys. She ran up to him and said "that's not yours" and took it. Frederick didn't care but I told her she couldn't do that and told her to give it back... Well she walks up to him and gave it back without protest. I was proud. Then I told her "maybe he will share, ask him if you can play with it now." And she says to him "May I want the giraffe.... Yes you may" and took it back. 😂🤣 . . She is sweet and her little personality is coming through. I'm so blessed with my sweet babies. 😍 . . . . . . #igmotherhood #cutekid #motherhoodlife #cutekids #memoirsofmotherhood #thisismotherhood #momentsinmotherhood #family #family❤️ #cutekidsofinstagram #motherhoodjourney #wednesday #cutekidscorner #familybonding #prilaga #motherhoodinspired #familylove #cutekidsclub #motherhoodintheraw #cutekidsonearth #motherhoodrocks #motherhoodunplugged #babyboy #motherhoodmoments #motherhood #motherhoodrising #honestmotherhood #happywednesday #cutekidclub

After 12 days of studying her tiny little features, today I noticed just how big her big sister is now. Without anyone to compare her to, my oldest grew so gradually that years 2-4 run together somewhat. But I remember crying every time she outgrew a size during those first 2 years because it seemed to happen so quickly. I don’t have a problem “cherishing every moment,” as they say. My problem is accepting that those cherished moments have become memories of the past and there’s nothing I can do to relive them no mater how much I desire to. These truly are the days... . . . . #toddlermom #maskcarabeauty #maskcaraartist #loveyourself #inspire #momsofinstagram #momlife #pursuepretty #motherhood #motherrunner #livethelittlethings #happiness #joyfulmamas #motherhoodinspired #momliferocks #inspirationintheeveryday #candidmotherhood #girlmom #mommasheart #honestparenting #slowmotherhood #thisismotherhood #INFJ #HSP #highlysensitiveperson #knowthyself #introvertsunite #thrivingmom

Since becoming a mom to a toddler I feel like my acting skills have become exceptional. Like when it’s 10pm and this guy thinks it’s ok to still be awake. So I lay in bed with him and pretend to sleep, take two judo chops to the neck and STILL pretend to be asleep. That’s an award winning performance!

“As soon as I saw you I knew an adventure was about to begin” -Winnie The Pooh ——- Today we experienced a first Cooper and I. At drop of this morning he said goodbye and ran off toward school only to turn around and come back full of tears asking to spend the day at home with me. ——- Cooper has never been tearful about leaving me. Sure there’s been times he’s been nervous, but never tearful, and never avoiding a situation. ——- He assured me he felt fine and that there was nothing bothering him at school and that he just missed me and wanted to spend time with me. But either way, it hurt this Mommas heart. ——- I pride myself in raising strong and confident children so this was a hit to my pride. But even more, it was a hit to my heart that my little boy was sad. ——- We chatted, then I walked him to his room, and told him he could call me at lunch time if he was still sad. He made it the entire day and met me after school with a smile. ——- Our life is as hectic as ever these days but we will be scheduling one-on-one dates with all of our children as a priority from now on. ——- What are you favorite ways to spend time with children?

I celebrated my 25th birthday this weekend!! A quarter of century! I’m still not sure how that’s possible, because last I checked I was just graduating high school! 😱I had a super great weekend with my family up at Lake Eerie (my happy place!) Today my mom had a surprise, Eiffel Tower themed party for me. This has been one of my most challenging years to date. I’m so grateful for all that has been fulfilled this year. I’m also ready for a season of rest! Here’s to 25 being all it can be and more, to raising the most beautiful little girls, to finally owning and creating my own home, to growing my businesses, to falling more in love with my hubby then ever before, to being the best me I can be, and to fulfilling the density Jesus has for me (even in the everyday mundane.) 25...I’m ready for you!!! 💛🌙🌞✨ @brooklynfaithphotography #bestofmoments #mommyblogger #momblog #motherhoodunplugged #ohheymama #momlife #momswithcameras #postthepeople #clickinmom #joysofmotherhood #thisismotherhood #ig_motherhood #stopdropandmom #momcommunity #mynameismama #igmotherhood #honestmomconfessions #dailyparenting #parentingunplugged #themotherhoodcorner #motherhoodandme #igmotherhood #thebump #motherhoodunhinged #motherhoodunhinged #camera_mama #mymamahood #simplymotherhood #simplymotherhoodvibes #motherhoodunhingedy #motherhoodthroughinstagram • • • dreamy 😍✨🧡 happy birthday mama @ourrobinsontribe #mamahoodinspired

Someone was stuck in a glass case of emotion today 😳 Why is your toddler crying? Because his aunt brought him gifts while I was working. And because I offered him a Halloween Oreo. And then because I took the Oreo he rejected, away. But he ended the day with a smile, so that’s good I guess? 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 #DanielEugeneJr #toddlersofinstagram

FOUR MONTHS: (on the 9th) deliciously chunky thighs. found her voice and squawks whenever she's laying on her back. super strong, but not sitting yet. loves to be worn in the ring sling. four month sleep regression s u c k s but the last two nights have been better so we might be coming out of it! she's a nursing champ and totally goes with the flow when we're out and about. adores her crazy big sister. a few laughs here and there, we're constantly prodding her for them. we're so crazy obsessed with you nora girl, we often talk about eating your cheeks for dinner...maelyn especially. speaking of mae, i had to bribe her with candy corn for these photos. 🤷🏼‍♀️ | #norarey #4monthsold

I listened to an interview with Jason Bateman on our morning walk (anybody else have crush on him since 1988?) ⠀ When asked about why he was so well-spoken and good at his craft he said, “...Don’t overthink it.” ⠀ It’s nothing profound. ⠀ But, seeing as how I have a fresh stack of parenting books on my nightstand, I wondered if this one little phrase isn’t also the key to being a good mama. ⠀ Don’t overthink it. Relax, take a deep breath and do what feels best. ⠀ I’m still going to read those books but I figure, if my Hogan Family crush is still surviving successfully at his craft, then maybe stopping my perpetual worry, fear, and anxiety might help me survive mom life, too.

My little boy, stopping to admire the flowers 💕💕 Every day he reminds me that we're doing fine, he's happy, growing, and appreciates the little things. I may yell at him, rush him away from play, and only half-listen to him by the third telling of how his snack ended up in the floor, but we are fine! Every day includes a mix of moments I wish would pass already and those I wish would linger a little longer. This is the reality of motherhood which we endure and enjoy to different degrees depending on the day, the mood, the weather... That is life. Do your best to choose to focus on the joy, no matter how many moments of frustration, apathy, or exhaustion come before or after it. Take a picture. Cherish it. And dwell in the joy. #thisismotherhood #candidmotherhood #momtruth #letthemexplore #runwildmychild #pnwbeauty #selfcareformoms #introvertmom #smelltheflowers #momsofinsta #momsofboys #worldoflittles #peacefulparenting #threeyearold #themotherhood #attitudeofgratitude #youareenough

I love the funny things they say, the awesome outfits they choose and the fact that they don’t care what other people think. * I also love when diapers are over. * I love the preschool stage. I love how curious and adventurous they are. I love the enthusiasm that radiates from them. * I also love dreaming of who they will become as they grow older. * I love where we are right now. * I also love thinking about the future and how the chaos may tame a bit once the kids are more independent. * I love the busyness and energy of our days. * I also love when things slow down.

Happy Thursday dance off • lots of “discussions” today with Clark about learning how to play with Vera, at her level and teaching her • he expects her to play what he wants, how he wants • it must be really hard coming from King to learning how to reduce your demands to accommodate someone else - I say hard, but he’s really applying no effort to it 🤷🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️👑♥️✖️ #allhailtheking

Get you a best friend that supports you like mine supports me 😂 We used to binge watch crime shows while we would binge eat candy {and when I say binge watch I mean while kids are playing in the background so we would try to watch a 1 hour show, but it would take us ALLL DAAAYYY... because... kids 🤷🏻‍♀️} Anyways, I’m doing a “one month no candy” challenge so I chose watermelon instead. She’s such a great supporter of me and my goals 😂♥️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #love #transformation #happymama #empowerment #mompreneur #mom #momlife #boymama #blogger #blog #motherhoodrising #momitforward #ig_motherhood #mynameismama #stopdropandmom #motherhoodinspired #lifeasmama #instamom #momlife #momcommunity #simplymamahood #instamama #motherhoodintheraw #momlifestyle #bloggermom #mommymode #thisismotherhood #featuremama #messy_motherhood #raisingmytribe

Today was snuggles and dancing to Huds new favorite songs. It’s the worst knowing your kiddo doesn’t feel 100% but you have no idea what’s going on. 😩 I know this is just normal mom stuff and I also know it will never get “better.” Thankful to get to be home with him on days like today. So so glad it’s ME that gets to snuggle and take care of this sickie. #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #thisismotherhood #momlife #boymom #momofboys #childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #letthekids #ohheymama #momlifeisthebestlife #thatsdarling #liveauthentic #parentingGodsway #knowwhoyouare #intentional #intentionalliving #cameramama #letthembelittle #honestmotherhood #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #uniteinmotherhood #simplychildren #vscomom

I’m feeling some ROSE GOLD today - it was a BEAUTIFUL fall day ☀️🍂, I actually got ALL 50 of my errands done ✅, and one of my 4 yo’s told me that she loves that I “have many talents” 😊❤️ I’m not sure where she heard it or the context 😬 but I’ll take it (especially since last night she told me I was making her “sadder and sadder” 😂 #threenager) So 🙌🏼 to a happy hump day 🎉❤️ You can feel ROSE GOLD everyday with this edition of our Bomb Mom tee - check it out in the shop today! ✨

Today was a good day. The sun was shining and the boys woke up at a fairly decent hour, and I took time to reflect on this summer and all the goodness that it held. Don’t be fooled there was still a fair share of fights and brawls among the boys, toys dropped down a register and getting hurt...someone’s always getting hurt 🤦🏽‍♀️ BUT all things considered it was a good day. . These boys make me want to pull my hair out most days, but there are lots and lots of sweet moments intertwined in all the craziness like little glimmers of gold ✨

This week we swapped toy and Highchair cleaner. A lot of moms use Lysol or Clorox wipes because they are easy to find and easy to use. I, however, don’t like to use them around the house (unless I’m trying to disinfect) and I don’t use them on my kids’ belongings. Chemicals from these products don’t belong on a highchair that I put my baby’s food on or toys that my baby puts in his mouth. • Honestly, disinfecting wipes are not necessary for everyday cleaning. Cleaning removes germs from the surface, disinfecting kills germs by using antimicrobial pesticides. Are you thinking, “Well I DO want to kill germs on my baby’s toys!” I get it, but let’s discuss why that is not always necessary. • Did you know that some exposure to living bacteria is healthy for us? This exposure can strengthen immune systems, particularly in kids. But overuse of disinfectants can lead to “superbugs,” or bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics... these are the last things we want. So using a plant based cleaner like Babyganics works well enough. • Finally, the chemicals found in disinfecting wipes can disrupt the endocrine system, can cause reproductive toxicity and asthma, can release formaldehyde (a known carcinogen), depress the nervous system, and are irritants for the skin, eye, and respiratory tract. • Since I use a plant based cleaner I don’t have to freak out when my baby puts a toy in his mouth or when he puts his organic puffs directly on his highchair. It is such an easy swap and helps give me peace of mind. #healthyswaps #busymom #momming #babyganics #organic #cleaning #highchair #baby #highstandards #greencleaning

We’ve been near the ocean a good amount this past week and it’s been refreshing for the soul. It scratches the itch to want to get out and explore when we can do anything but. I want to escape and adventure and vacation. I just want to be with my little family. Not see anyone. Not be anywhere. Just cuddle up for days and be alone together. It seems these last 6 months have been all consuming but we are near the end. We are dragging one another to the finish line as we’re tired and drained and long for home. But we are nearly there. Almost. Just almost. #littlekastle

The hanger is real || I’m out of the house till after lunch today so to avoid being caught out and having to buy something I’ve packed myself some snacks. My reusable coffee cup is always with me, Just in case I ‘need’ a coffee - highly likely. So is my drink bottle - I aim to drink 2-3 of these a day. Teaspoon from my cutlery drawer and awesome mini cooler bag that is the perfect size for in my handbag. Anyone else get insanely hangry??

I recently got the opportunity to give back to my Alma Mater 👩‍🎓WE ARE 💙 @pennstate • I spoke with a handful of Juniors & Seniors and the most common questioned asked: “What advice would you give to your former self?” • Here’s the thing, I was NOT the model student. I barely graduated college. I did what I needed to get by, I wasn’t winning any accolades for my grades, I always had to do Summer session. And no, it wasn’t because I was jacked up about learning! D’s + F’s were a familiar friend. • So my advice? Never let anyone tell you how big your dreams can be, you are not defined by a letter or a number. Your passions, your character, the things that motivate you, THAT defines you. Do YOU and the rest will follow.🙌😘 • • • #momsirl #momlife #momtogs #boymom #boymomlife #postpartum #fitmom #toddlermom #hotmessmom #adhdmom #candidmotherhood #candidchildhood #letthembelittle #wellnessjourney #momtips #unitedmotherhood #girlmom #blessthismess #momblog #momblogger #joyfulmamas #momsofinstagram #momgoals #adultadhd #motherhoodinspired #momlifebelike #legitmomstyle #thisismotherhood #honestparenting #pennstate

Imagine it’s Friday afternoon and you get a text from your friend, “Hey, what are you up to tonight? We have extra tickets to a concert and would love for you to join us. We’re leaving in an hour.” If you’re single, or married without kids, you might be footloose, fancy free, and jump at the opportunity. But if you’re a parent, your response likely goes like this … “I wish, but there ain’t no way I’m gonna book a sitter and be ready to leave in an hour. That would be impossible. Thanks for the invite, but give me 6 months notice next time.” . Hi, I’m Amy, Co-Founder of Komae along with one of my greatest friends, Audrey Wallace. We believe parents are deserving of free time and we believe they should be able to find it with ease and without guilt. Parenthood should be more than diapers, sleepless nights, bags under your eyes, and gray hair. Parenthood shouldn’t be a time in your life when you press pause, hoping to press resume when they go to college. You can have life now and you can have it to the full, even when you’re raising and loving an army of little humans. . Two years ago, Audrey and I launched Komae as an app for parents to swap free babysitting with each other. I sit for you. You sit for me. No one pays for babysitting anymore. And during those two years, not only did we hear from our customers how much their life was changed by swapping with friends, but we heard these two statements… . I tend to ask Grandma and Grandpa first, and then I put my sit request on Komae. . If no one offers to help on this sit request, I’m going to call my paid sitters next, so let me know by Thursday! . Friends… we heard you, and we made Komae even better for you. We’re taking those three parts and we’re putting them in one single spot. That’s right, you can now have everyone your trust to care for your kids in one app whether they’re someone who simply wants to help you out (Angels!), someone you pay cash (Sitters!), or another parent you want to swap favors with (Swappers!). .

This is what last night looked liked. Lorenzo woke at 1am not even crying but full on scream like he had a bad dream or something and refused to go back into his own room. We have been dealing with separation anxiety from Lorenzo for a few weeks now and this is my reality but I actually enjoy the cuddles because lately I feel like he has been growing up way too fast and not wanting cuddles so much so I’m really glad he wants them again. 🌿 • • #mumrant #aussiemums #mummyblogger

I think I am ready to get little João in Senna’s old room. He is not sleeping at all through the night being next to us. However, Senna still loves his crib. Should I just buy another crib?🤪I need guidance mamas.

Y’all I’ve tried to get Everlee to wear these overalls for 4 months since she got them for her birthday (because come on HOW CUTE?!). Mrs. Opinionated refused time and time again. Out of nowhere this morning- E: “ohhhh mama, what about overalls today?” Me: “oh those? Sureee I guess why not” (🙌🏻😍🎊) This girl is strong willed, determined, so beautifully does everything in her own time and is going to change the world one day, I’m convinced. So lucky to be hers 💛

Living for these small moments with my children. The little moments through the day when I can squeeze them. The moments, I get to sit on the floor and play with them & hear their sweet laughs. The moments when they whisper (or scream) “I love you mommy”. That’s the moments I’ll always remember and cherish ♥️ #stayathomemom #momlife #thisismotherhood #boymom #motherofthree #thisishomeschool

The boys invented a snack and asked me to label their containers. They kill me. My house is never boring!

Haven’t missed a weekday Outside Hour yet! The fresh air has been a great mood lifter, we’ve watched less TV, I’ve noticed an uptick in activity tracked by my watch, and let’s be real, it fills a solid 90+ minutes of the day. You’d think my kids would be sleeping like rocks... #canthaveitall

My Rey & My Little Star💕💫✨ They seriously melt my heart with the bond they have, if we leave anywhere they both go find one another, they cannot go anywhere with out each other, they always play together, & make sure each other are happy! My brother & I never been close. So my heart is happy seeing how close they are, & how much they love each other 😍💗 #schroederfamilyoffour #reyrey #littlestar #watchthemgrow #mommylife #mommasheart

Our little two-nager girl have been more active than ever. She’s also been obsessed with playing in the dirt. As soon as we are out the door, she runs to any dirt she can find. I don’t mind her getting dirty if we’re staying around the neighborhood otherwise I have to catch her before she gets herself dirty or she’ll look like she’s been rolling around in dirt all day. 😂 #mamaandme #twinning👯

Right before these pictures she looked at me and said “mama, you’re my best friend” and my heart exploded. I love this angel more than words can say!

Some images transcend time and space. They are reality without attaching a time period or specific year to them. These moments in some shape or form have been around since the beginning of humanity. I love images that speak to that transcendence. #napcp #classicphotography #blackandwhitephotography #generationsbefore #generationsaftergenerations #amotherslove #motherandchild #melissaannphotography #longviewfamilyphotographer #cmglimpse #clickinmoms #cameramamas #clickmagazine #newbornphotography #lifestylenewbornphotography #candid #timeless #motherhood #thisismotherhood

Showing up for our kids is probably one of the single most important things we can do. How we show up is an entirely different beast all together. Let’s be honest, I don’t exactly put my best foot forward 𝓪𝓵𝓵 the time. Its challenging to talk about this, but I want to be brutally real with myself. Sometimes I totally loose my temper with my babes (so not proud of this). ——— Yesterday’s busy background; the kids have been sick now for 3 weeks. James is away working for an 8 day stretch. Nyla is not sleeping well. We spent 4 hours at a play centre. Went grocery shopping. And took Karma for a long walk. ——— Its a little funny because on our way home from our super busy day…I was so proud of myself. I felt like I was just nailing this mom thing being a total super mom! Needless to say though - we were all very tired. So when I caught Nyla banging our family pictures + her brother was right there beside her playing paw patrol on top of them, I snapped. Sending Jasper to his room and placing Nyla in her crib. ——— It was only a second of flashing anger, but I just felt like such a failure. Like everything positive I did that day was stripped away from me in that fleeting moment. Of course, I apologized to Jasper after and more calmly explained why these items are so important to mommy. ——— I wanted to share this because I know how IG and other social media can paint such a pretty picture of perfection. But that’s not reality. We all struggle at times, we all (or at least I hope I’m not alone) lose our tempers, and we all feel down sometimes. Whats important is how we move forward and show up a little better next time!
