Any of my friends from El Paso fully understand this moment.

Shout out to my amazing husband for finding this place and know how much it would mean to me. I talked to the owners daughter while we were there last night and she said her mom grew up in El Paso and reached out to see if Chico’s Tacos wanted to branch out to Phoenix. They did not, but her mom busted but to get the recipe just right and when her dad finally gave it a thumbs up...The Drowning Taco! They even give a shout out to Chico’s for the inspiration.

Found a little slice of home tucked away in Arizona. And I’m in heaven, clearly!

I’m obviously partial to the Drowning Tacos but all of the food here was amazing!! And the place comes with top notch cleanliness and super friendly vibes!! We will definitely eat back!! #impressed #thedrowningtaco #gimmeadouble #sliceofhome #chicostacos #inspired #raisinggentlemen #momlife #boymom #motherhoodunplugged #thisismotherhood #motherhoodrising #wellness #nourishyourself #livewell #growthmindset #createalifeyoulove #soulpurpose #instagood #itsthelittlethings #thisisus #familyovereverything

THE POWER OF A SACRED STORY KEEPER⁠⠀
THE ROLE OF A TRAUMA-INFORMED DOULA⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Learn the art of soul-care, not just self-care so you do not burnout⁠⠀
⁠⠀
As a Doula, you are the primary witness of birth and you hold the sacred birth story. You witness (and hear) everything – the glory and the gory. You are 'givers' by nature and most likely entered birthwork ignited by passion and love. The downside is that you are at risk of giving too much resulting in compassion fatigue or secondary traumatic stress (STS). Would you like to learn how to embody and embrace your role as a Sacred Story Keeper, and learn the art of holding space in the postpartum? ⁠⠀
.....⁠⠀
Learn how to mitigate risks of birth trauma⁠⠀
Learn how to weave a mother’s birth story as a transformational experience (regardless of outcome)⁠⠀
Learn how to support the mental and emotional health of the mom in the postpartum ⁠⠀
Learn sacred ritual and ceremony to share with your birth family for weaving in the story⁠⠀
Learn how to help a mother process her grief and her joy⁠⠀
Maximize the ‘invisible’ skills you hold to bring about healing ⁠⠀
.....⁠⠀
Your role is more powerful than you know. You hold sacred medicine as a witness and ear to transformation. ⁠⠀

Throwback Thursday to 6+ years ago when we got engaged. When life was simpler and yet I thought it was busy and complicated. After two kids and multiple moves and all the norms of relationships...boy was I wrong! Life and kids and work from home businesses keeps us busy, but it’s a much better busy. Busy with a purpose. Busy for something bigger. What’s your purpose...your why? Why do you wake up in the morning?

Before I settled on 'Rae's Roots' (named after my daughter) I considered calling the brand 'Ginger Mama'....true story.⠀

From the very first day, I knew ginger would (and will be) a staple in all our products. ⠀

Its an incredible base point for one's diet and got me through some of my toughest times. From helping with all the nausea during pregnancy to settling my nerves in postpartum to a simple immunity boost when I was feeling under the weather. Simply put it leads the way as:⠀

✔️Digestive soother⠀
✔️Anti inflammatory powerhouse⠀
✔️Anti-oxidant leader⠀

It is the 'wonder root' that deserves a lot more appreciation than it gets (kind of like moms 😝) and will always have a place at Rae's Roots.

Una semanita de vida! ⠀

Muchos cambios en poco tiempo, superada la fase subida de leche y lactancia materna exclusiva viento en popa!⠀

Paseos para aquí y para allá rellenando papeles.⠀

Y podríamos decir que estamos haciendo la preparación del nido, ahora 😂. ⠀

La verdad, estoy alucinada de lo rápido que me estoy recomponiendo, esta última fase del embarazo estaba siendo terrible y ahora siento que me he liberado por completo. Sigo arrastrando algún que otro mal, sobretodo el tema cadera y lumbares. Pero eso ya estaba mal de antes 😂 ⠀

Y bueno, Arlene de momento nos lo está poniendo muy fácil! ⠀
Con Aurélie viene la parte más complicada... con su energía y su carácter nos pone a prueba constantemente. Supongo que como en todo, es cuestión de tiempo. O eso quiero creer! 😅⠀

One day at a time 💙 Postpartum is truly a journey back to yourself. Never the same, yet stronger than before. Some days you kill the parenthood & fitness game, other days just feel like survival. Our bodies are capable of so much. Give yourself time to find your rhythm. #HealthyAlibi

"...so we are just going to forfeit all our plans today and have a relaxing day, maybe make it out to the park because fresh air always does us good. But with no plans, no high expectations, just focusing on enjoying them today. Enjoying our time together." —@raising.little.women. 🧡 Lovely words from one of Belinda's recent posts. Who else can relate? 👋 #realmotherhood #momunity

Same genes, same boots.👢(see what I did there 🤣) I’ve mentioned over the last few weeks how hard the terrible twos have hit this house, but I have to give Sofia some credit over these past few days. I realized being trapped in the house has been a huge attribute as to why she’s been so on edge. So this week we’ve gotten bundled up and taken a few short walks just to get some fresh air, and honestly, I think it’s been amazing for the both of us! No phone, no tablet, just her and I and the outdoors 🌿

Nope, not a photo from today. Cause this little star is currently home with the chickenpox! Yep, I love that we finally can get it over with, but the sad part is that we have to postpone our trip to Sweden.. Luckily we can visit my in-laws in january instead 🤷🏻‍♀️

Yesterday I felt like a bad mom. How many times have I made this weekly trip with both of my kids to gymnastics and I still can’t manage to get everything “just right” (go watch my stories for the details on what went down 😅)


Then Taylor snapped this picture of us last night and I realized two things. 1) TJ doesn’t know that I put his bottle together wrong, or that I wasted a bunch of breastmilk & 2) he was fed, he was happy, and he was just glad to be with me. His mom. •

How many times do we beat ourselves up as moms over the trivial things that happen on a daily basis where we think “I should have done better” 😩 we are all out here just trying to survive this motherhood deal and the bumps along the way serve as a right of passage. So take on those toddler meltdowns at the worst possible time, the 5th or 20th time you’ve forgotten to do something or didn’t complete everything on yours to do list or just put together a bottle wrong and leaked the last of your milk everywhere. Take them on with a smile and know that at the end of the day your babies love you dearly, not because you’re super mom who never makes any mistakes, but because you are their mama. Their smiles at you and their hugs at the end of the day make all this worth it 💕

Two weeks from today these two will be one. .
.
I’m not sure I’m ready. These last 12 months have been the fastest 12 months of my whole entire life. Still feels like yesterday when I had the first and best blind date I’ve ever had meeting these two for the first time. .
.
To watch them grow has truly been a blessing that I don’t take for granted. They’ve been super healthy, except for last week when my daughter had her first fever that was 105.2 degrees and sent this mama into a crazy anxiety and panic attack because chilllllllllleeeeee my baby 😭😭😭 BUT GOD 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
.
.
So grateful they’re mine. So grateful God chose me to be their mama. .
.
Still don’t know what to do/get them for their birthday. Also what should I get ME for their birthday? (Don’t @ me, you get a present for Jesus’ birthday every year 😜)....but really, what’s a cool/memorable first birthday present?

Last weekend we dove into our slow, post-Thanksgiving break by starting our Christmas traditions: making cookies.

Two words: S P R I N K L E S everywhere.

The girls had so much decorating them as our kick off to the holiday season. We started decorating the house and porch, but it came to a halt when I needed more hooks and my husband’s muscles. 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
I’m a total Christmas season junkie, so I am excited to dive into all things holiday. 🎄What about you?

What’s your favorite holiday tradition?

Making homemade ornaments with the girls today! The house smells delicious and Olivia had a blast- definitely making this a new tradition. What are your traditions that you started with your kids? Hoping to make this season as magical as possible so any ideas are appreciated! And speaking of magical, for anyone local - you can find us at Christmas in Montrose this weekend! I can’t wait for the girls to meet Santa and enjoy all the festivities. I think my favorite part will be seeing the town all decorated- I’m a sucker for lights and decorations. [side note- swipe to see the recipe we used thanks to @pricechopper ]

Mommas- I need all your advice!⁣

We are quickly approaching our sweet babygirl coming into the world in a few short months and our little man Bodie loves his momma fierce. ⁣

From the moment he was born he’s been attached to me. I thought possibly, like his older brother he’d think dad was cooler by now 😂 but he’s all about momma. ⁣

I love every single minute, but worry when his sister comes he will have a difficult time transitioning. Our first transitioned so well, and he’s sooo excited for a baby sister. ⁣

Give me all your advice, I don’t want to lose the bond I have with my sweet little boy because it’s been so special for me, but I want to make sure I’m also getting all the baby snuggles from our precious little girl! 💕 ⁣

PS how cute is he.. 😍

Can you ever see too many Christmas lights?!?! 🎄⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Last night we visited @glowholiday and I can safely say that my kids LOVED it! The tubing (which was dry so not wet bottoms), walk through lights, warm cookies, playhouses and Santa’s workshops were all huge hits with my crew!⁣ I tried to keep my phone put away and just enjoy the experience with my people, but I did remember to snap a few pics!⁣
⁣⁣
This event is pricey, but if you go on a Tuesday or Wednesday it’s a bit cheaper. And while I’ve read stories of long lines for everything, we found it pretty low key last night (on a Wednesday). ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
What’s your favorite holiday light display?

Santa needs to know that I’m not the one.

This mama has been up late wrapping gifts, studying for finals, and wiping noses. Mr. Clause 🎅🏽 thinks he’s getting on the credit? Not this Christmas. ✌🏽

Just kidding we love Santa. 🎅🏽 #jinglealltheway

On a side note, this shirt! @ten27apparel #gifted us the best shirts. I posted DJ’s shirt a couple of posts ago. They are comfy and lightweight. I pair mine with leggings and a cardi (and house shoes obviously).

This passage means the world to me. Mamas (& daddies), we are the warriors in this verse 4! We are raising arrows so that one day we can watch them fly. ❤️

This little big girl had her first dance class yesterday. 💃🏻 ⁣

She’s been asking about dance for a few months so we decided to take a little break from swim class and try dance for a bit. She loved it and those tutus are just the cutest. I know what “Santa” will be getting her for Xmas this year, all of the dance gear! ⁣

Dance moms, what are some must haves? We have ballet and tap shoes but I’m thinking new leotards, tights and I definitely need to up our hair bow game!🎀

you know those days when you're SO tired that you literally fantasize all day about the moment you finally get to climb into your warm, cozy bed? that was me yesterday.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and when the moment came, I pulled back the covers, climbed in with ollie trailing behind me, and then spent an hour scrolling through photos while chad put owen to bed 🤦🏻‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
so if I talk about being tired in stories today, shoot me a DM and remind me that I only have myself to blame! 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
happy thursday friends - the weekend is officially within our grasp! 🙌🏼 #caitsplate⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"This photo was one day postpartum & it’s the most raw I’ve ever been. I love my body more than ever because it is no longer just mine. It was his first, then hers. It has been home to the two lights of my life. It is the body of a mother - strong, resilient, changing, beautiful. At the end of the day, I believe our bodies are just the vessels for our souls. That they help to tell our story, they do not define it. Mine tells the story of a girl who fell in love young and was so blessed to grow & birth two children, one via cesarean. I’m not ashamed of the stretch marks, scar, and extra pounds that got me here, but even I need reminders that beauty is more than a size or shape. Beauty is in each of our stories and it is within each of us.⁠

I heard someone ask recently ‘What do you want your body to do for you?’. I want mine to allow me to chase my children around the house, to dance with my husband till I’m old and grey, to adventure to new places, to hold my babies when they need me, to work for the women I love across the world, to rest, to wake up tomorrow and do it all again.⁠

To anyone reading, in case no one has told you today, you are fearfully & wonderfully made and YOU are beautiful.⁠" - @katie__sansom

• Let’s Get Real •

First, I will start off by saying this post might not be for any of my men followers. So you can keep on scrolling or get a slight insight on what your wife may go through after having kids. Second, this was in no way sponsored or gifted to me. I just felt like this was such an amazing product that I could share with my fellow Mama’s out there who might be going through what I am.

When I had my second baby, my son, my body turned completely upside down. I haven’t felt myself in the longest while. All of a sudden, my body went through this HUGE drastic change compared to my first pregnancy. But the one thing that I developed after my second baby was a bad underarm odour (I know, I know TMI). I was embarrassed to go anywhere. No matter what I used, nothing worked. I was at one point using 2 deodorants plus a medicated deodorant 2x a day and still sometimes that didn’t always work. I came across this Native deodorant and did some research on it. I was desperate and I was willing to try anything. This deodorant has been LIFE CHANGING for me. I am now down to just using one stick of deodorant 1x a day. I no longer have to use the medicated deodorant and the scent on these are AMAZING!!! The best part is they last a while because you don’t need that much! I highly recommend it to anyone who may be going through what I am. #GoNative

I guess I'll never be a "cool mom".
-
My Super Smash Bros technique involves pressing every button simultaneously, while losing track of which character I am.
-
Good thing my kids think I'm a total newbie and are ok with my lack of skills. 🤣
-
Truth is, I've been mashing all the Nintendo controller buttons at once since the 90s. 🙈

What do your kids think makes someone a cool mom?

I want to remember every little detail about this postpartum experience. Everything from the soothing newborn snuggles right down to the intense afterpains that come with a third baby. There is much to unlearn and relearn, but oh, my feelings about the fourth trimester are changing for the better.

"When I found out I was pregnant, a million fears flooded my mind. I actually remember just staring at the pregnancy test in complete shock. I held my breath (unintentionally) for what seemed like forever.
I just couldn’t imagine life with four children. Four! I simply could not picture it. I was in denial for quite some time… A happy denial. Like, part of me was so crazy excited - I was almost afraid to be happy and another part of me was plain terrified.
Well, here we are today. Just shy of four months with four kids and I can honestly say that this baby is the best thing that could have happened to us.
So, to anyone else who may be scared about the unknown, hang in there because most things just have a way of working out. 💫 "

"Dear mama,

It’s okay to want to hold your baby for every nap and it’s okay to let her cry it out.
It’s okay to breastfeed your baby and bottle feed him too.
It’s okay to want space and also want to never let them go.
It’s okay to hold them for every nap and it’s okay to put them down.
It’s okay to have just one and it’s okay to have multiples.
It’s okay to stare at your baby all day and it’s okay to go to all the activities.
It’s okay to want that extra belly to go away and it’s okay to love your softness.
It’s okay to feel like a champ one day and it’s okay to be a mess the next.
It’s okay to cry about anything and it’s okay to be the one to lift someone else up.
It’s okay mama—you’ve got this."
