9 months in vs. 9 months out

Life was a little different one year ago 🤰🏻.The BIGGEST thing I have learned and am still working on is letting go of control after going through labor/birth and having Michael. I thought I had it down when it came to teaching, constantly reminding myself what was and was not in my control, but danggg […]

My little secret

The secret to having this kind of energy after being up from 2-4 AM with Michael teething last night?? ⬇️.I truly believe it’s my daily superfoods that give me all the nutrients I need so I’m not ravenous and craving junk. When I miss just one day, the next day all I want to do […]

Beautiful messes

Motherhood: the most beautiful messes 😊❤️.Like laundry all over the floor because he is just mimicking how you take the laundry out of the basket..Or spit up all over your new shirt, that missed the burp cloth, after babe had a good feed..Or toys, Tupperware, pots, & pans, all over after playing in a room..What […]

5 best tools/things I use on a daily basis:

1️⃣ Michael’s weighted straw cup. Michael can use this independently now. When we first started him on solids/purees at 6 months old we started introducing water at meals. I only give him about an inch full worth a day, which he doesn’t even drink it all (usually he spits it out once he gets it […]

Mommy win and mommy fail

Being a mom is hard, y’all..I’ve been listening to the podcast @mamasaidpodcast this week and love it. Great humor for my fellow mommas out there who need a good laugh after a tough day. I wanted to share my own mommy win and fail from this week like they do on the show..Mommy win: I’ve […]

You are strong, momma

For any new or soon-to-be mommas: you are stronger than you think you are..Take it from me! I was a basket case leading up to Michael’s birth. I did NOT want a C-section and all the drugs that came with it. I read so many books, listened to hours of podcasts, & we hired a […]

The struggle is real

We are back and that week and a half social media break was much needed 🙌🏻.Who knew how much our baby Michael would grow during this short time: one of his top teeth broke through and he learned to crawl 😳.As a new stay at home mom (and the personality that I have) sometimes I […]
