I just trying to drive a car safely! 🚗 That’s it. 🤦‍♀️ Instead it feels like I’m getting a massage from a broken pedicure chair.

It’s a right of passage for every child to have to wear a cummerbund and bow tie once in their life right? Super blessed to have the chance to tag along on my two oldest’s holiday choir tour friend trip to Union Station❤️ It was not without moments of chaos and I for sure did not plan on holding a little girl’s tooth that she lost mid concert in my pocket or charging $40 worth of candy on my credit card @crowncenter (kids forgot $$🤷🏼‍♀️) 😂 But watching my kiddos run around with their friends happy, healthy (and ornery) is the real gift. Something I’m blessed with today and giving all that candy away definitely put me in the Christmas Spirit💕

When I was in the lowest phase of my life, my baby taught me strength. 🌟
.
.
When I was having anger issues, he taught me patience & calm. 🌟
.
.
When i was all caught up in my own daily chores, he taught me its ok to let loose the inner child sometimes. 🌟
.
.
When i was being responsible for everyone, he taught me it’s ok to do something for your own sanity. 🌟
.
.
When I stopped loving myself, he taught me compassion.🌟
.
.
When i couldn’t achieve something, he taught me, even if you fell, you can get up and try again harder.🌟
.
.
When i cried, he brought my smile back.🌟
.
.
Sometimes along the way of life we have become too mature & responsible;
but then these lil human beings comes along our life and changes our perspective, our way of life and instils hope , innocence and littlest things that we may have lost along the way. ❤️
.
.
While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about. 💖
.
.
Do you feel that your baby has taught you somethings ? ❤️✨

#tbt 5 years ago, little did we know of what was yet to come.
The birth of our first daughter strongly affected our relationship. In both directions, good and bad.
There was the admiration and the gratitude of having created something so perfect, the love and security emanating from the new family situation and knowing that in this unprecedented stressful situation someone had your back, someone you could trust 100%.
But there was also the clash of expectations and reality in this completely new situation. On how to handle parenting, on finding a balance between the baby, our relationship, household chores, work and so on. Overfatigue, the lack of time and intimacy. For my husband it was hard to see me so scared, even panicked by this new role, so absorbed by this little human being that I almost forgot not only about him but also about myself. And me, I sometimes felt trapped, lonely, reduced to the sole role of being a mom while he had the freedom to live parts of his former life when he was off to work.
The birth of our first daughter came as a real bombshell in our 7 year's relationship, but after about 7 months we realized for the first time again, that we slowly went back to normal, that we found back to each other, that we found a balance that worked for us.

Y’all this holiday season is about to get crazy but in a good way!! Today I am throwing my annual Christmas women’s luncheon! I think it’s so important for women to take time and have fun during this holiday season. We are always running around making sure everyone’s having a good time during Christmas but forget about ourselves. What do you do for yourself during the holiday season? P.S. I love this sweater. It’ll for sure brighten your day! http://liketk.it/2I4IS #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKholidaystyle

I'm about to wake up these munchkins and get them ready for school. But before I do that, I'm fuelling up this mama with this nutrient packed breakfast. I'm going to be out all day at a training to better understand how to be effective when working with young women and men who are at risk of human trafficking. It's part of my other life that I don't normally speak of here.
-
So on my plate today I'm having...
-
2 eggs, 1 cup of spinach, diced tomatoes, red onion, cooked with avocado oil, Himalayan pink salt, and fish seasoning for taste.
-
In my cup I'm drinking...
-
1 cup of kale (I store in my freezer for smoothies), half a pear, 1/4 of a banana, a dime size of fresh peeled ginger, 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt, teaspoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of hemp hearts, 1 cup of oats milk, and lots of ice. All blended in our most used kitchen appliance, @vitamixca.
-
Now it's your turn, what are you fuelling up with this morning?

One of the most challenging things about being a new parent that I thought wouldn’t be a challenge at all for me personally... Nothing is on MY time anymore.
“Well, duh!” You may think.. But I wholeheartedly thought this would be easy. To just use the excuse “sorry I’m late, my kid...” and honestly not feel bad about it. Oh to be a naive first time parent with a Type A personality.

I love it and I struggle with it all in one.
It reminds me to slow down. That everything else can wait. That nothing is more important right now. My child needs me. Whether he needs me to hold him, feed him, play with him, change him, dance with him, or simply let him sleep, he needs me.
I’ve made many promises lately based on my old lifestyle and how I was used to handling time management.. and a majority of those promises I was either late to or couldn’t keep at all.

Let me just say, this is not me complaining. I have wanted to be a mom more than I’ve wanted to be anything else in this world! I embrace this challenge and I will eventually not find it a challenge anymore. I’ll one day no longer be a first time parent. I’ll miss him needing me.

So today, I’m sure I’ll be late to a promise, but I’ve heard this goes by fast and what will feel like tomorrow my baby won’t need me anymore.

TT: The Power Struggle | TYM The power struggle is a normal part of childhood and a normal part of parenthood. Providing choices with guidance can be a great technique to keep those power struggles under control.

At this busy time of year, it’s easy to forget the little things and forget to live in the moment. December is my favorite time of year, but also the busiest and most stressful. Be mindful of each moment and each person. Appreciate what others do. Don’t forget that everyone is fighting their own battle to stay afloat. And always choose kindness. #momlife #momlifekeepingitreal #momtruth #runtoinspire

Like the time my first-grader asked how fast the tire was spinning when we drove, and I told him how many mph we were driving, but he legit wanted to know the rpm of the tire! From monkeys’ diets to physics, kids are great at asking you exactly what you don’t know!!!

One thing I do know — follow @goldfishandchickennuggets to brighten your day.

I have experienced postpartum depression twice. The first time I was 19 years old and a mama to a brand new baby. We had one car, it was the dead of winter and she wouldn't stop crying. I couldn't either. I put her in her crib and called my doctor letting them know I was not okay.
The second time I thought there was NO WAY I'd get it. I was in a totally different place. I had a home we owned. A great job. Friends and family surrounding me with so much love and support. It could never happen to me again.
It did. Even worse this time.
I was sad all of the time. I couldn't find joy in anything around me. I didn't want to leave the house. I thought if I put the baby in the car, something bad would happen to her. I had really dark, scary thoughts racing in my brain.
I reached out for help both times. I admitted to myself and to my loved ones that I was not okay.
It was hard for them to see it. How in the world could you be sad when you had this beautiful baby you had prayed for, for years? How could you be so sad when anyone and everyone offered to come to your home and do everything for you?
How could you be so sad?
I want you to know, you are not alone. Many of us experience postpartum depression. It does not make you a bad mom. It does not mean you do not love that baby. It just means you need to help. Asking for help is okay. Please do not be ashamed.
This week on my blog I talk about the fact that I have a counselor and I am proud of this. I go when I'm struggling and I go when I am doing well. It is a form of self care that I take very serious.

I want you to know, you are not alone. Many of us experience postpartum depression. It does not make you a bad mom. It does not mean you do not love that baby. It just means you need to help. Asking for help is okay. Please do not be ashamed. 
This week on my blog I talk about the fact that I have a counselor and I am proud of this. I go when I'm struggling and I go when I am doing well. It is a form of self care that I take very serious.

Childs farm.
We have been using @childsfarm products for 2 years now and I cannot rate them enough. Each and everyone smells Devine and leaves skin feeling super soft. We have a huge collection that keeps growing. Thank you so much @childsfarm for keeping not only my babies skin hydrated and soft but also mine and my hair.
We were #gifted this lovely bottle with a personalised Christmas message on it. How sweet is that.
These make the perfect stocking fillers for everyone.
Here’s to another year of using them ❤️

Join me LIVE this Friday on something really special!
.
I will share some of the texts I sent to my friends at 2 weeks postpartum and how I feel about them today!
.
This is going to be an extremely special and intimate session as 2 weeks postpartum was extremely hard for me... I felt incredibly lonely and desperately needed from someone to show me the light at the end of the tunnel... .
Did my friends show it to me? What exactly did I tell them? What kind of questions did I ask? How do I see it today?
.
Join me on Friday on my FB page @mumsjourneyip and you will find out! ❤️ xx

Maybe he won the lottery? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Who else noticed his dad’s Burberry scarf while he was running through the airport? My husband’s exact words, “Only you notice that shit.” 😂🤣

Autism is a hot topic of discussion on here. I often have the fear that someone may stumble upon my account and misinterpret my mission. Let me be clear: I want this space to represent acceptance and love. I want autism parents to see/read our story and reach a place of hope and healing. I want to help Autism professionals and educators better understand our families. I want to give my son a voice and my daughter the confidence to be herself. The responsibility I have to carry out this mission is not lost on me.
.
One thing I absolutely want to avoid is painting autism in a negative light. After any stressful season, sensory meltdown, family outing, IEP meeting, or battle I’ve had to fight in regards to autism - I have never once thought, “My kids make my life so hard”. People and systems who insist my kids act/communicate/learn like neurotypicals, lack of education and training for professionals, rude looks from strangers, ignorant comments, denial of rights and inclusion, trying to plan for their lives after I die, and even my own downfalls as a parent and human...THOSE things are what make Autism parenting hard for me. PLEASE don’t get it twisted!
.
Some days, I feel like the luckiest person in the world. Other days, I can barely hold it together. Regardless of what season I’m in, I hope my message is never lost in my delivery. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a million times: I love my children, NOT in SPITE of their diagnoses, but because of who they are entirely. 💙 #DifferentNotLess

This week's story is shared by Brea (@mamaneedstovent) - I suffered severe anxiety throughout my entire pregnancy, in silence.
I spent my pregnancy telling myself, if we just make it to the birth, everything will be okay. I still can’t believe how oblivious I was to the possibility of depression and continued anxiety.
___________
That first night home was a huge wake-up call. I spent the first few weeks crying all day, every day. I was breastfeeding in the beginning and only made it three weeks because I felt like I was drowning. My whole life was nursing, passing him off to sleep, nursing, repeat repeat repeat. So, I quit. I still struggle with hating myself for stopping.I was put on medication after my supportive husband and sister pointed out that maybe these feelings weren’t normal. This sadness. This anxiety. This defeat.
___________
Two weeks later I was a new woman. I finally felt that my son had a mom—a mom he deserved. I knew within the first week of my son’s life that I never wanted to do this again. I never wanted to suffer through severe anxiety for a whole pregnancy. I never wanted another emergency C-section that blew up my whole dream of labor and delivery. I never wanted to fail at breastfeeding, and hate myself all over again. I never wanted to have to start all over with postpartum depression.
___________
At first I was afraid to tell my husband and to my surprise, my husband felt the same way. He said he hated seeing me struggle and was grateful to have our healthy, happy, perfect boy. He said another baby wouldn’t make our lives complete. I was SO relieved. My son is almost one and we just started telling family members we're not having any more. It took us this long to share, because we knew the responses we’d receive. “You’re in your 20s. You’ll change your mind.”
“You have to give him a sibling. That would be so cruel to him.”
“Just wait until he asks you for a sibling. Then what?”
“That’s so selfish.”
—————
I could go on. It’s hard to hear and not feel supported. I feel anxiety around certain family members all the time. I hate it. But, none of this has changed our minds...(link in bio for the entire post).

It is okay;
to miss what came before.

The freedom.

The autonomy.

That job.

That body.

Your spirit.

Your choices.

The possibilities.

The fun.

EVEN when the place you are in now is a place that you love:

One that you wished for,

One that brings you happiness, fulfilment, and joy,

One that you can't imagine not being in now,

It is okay to grieve what got trapped in the room of the door that was shut, when the other door opened.

Lean on it.

That figurative door.

And that very real, valid feeling.

And don't be afraid to live in this truth -

You can both miss your old life while fiercely loving your new one.

Motherhood: we wouldn't change it for the world, but sometimes it is nice to remember the world that came before.💜

Mama’s mental health is best. Mamas, it is your choice and your choice alone how you feed your baby. And you deserve support for whatever you choose. We believe that what matters most is that your choice goes to protecting your mental health and wellness, whatever that looks like for you—breastfeeding, pumping, supplementing, only formula, it’s all okay. I promise you your baby cares more about your mental health and well-being than if they are getting fed by a boob or bottle. Please know that doing what is best for you and taking care of yourself isn’t selfish or an indulgence. It’s an act of survival and more importantly, love.
