“I want to get my masters degree” I say, as I rub off two day old makeup with a baby attached to my boob, a toddler screaming about something in the other room, 3000 loads of laundry to do, postpartum doula certification classes, a book I’m writing, and about a million animals traipsing through my house because my husband and I are both weak when it comes to strays.

Yesterday I sent off another kid to camp. Good thing she gets home tomorrow, can't take much more of this #imisshersomuch #largefamilylife #mamasheart
Stop growing up you ridiculously gorgeous amazing creature ❤️😭 #daughter #mamasheart #imadedis #mini # ginger #life #gorgeous
How do I have an almost 4 year old!? It blows my mind sometimes, it really does feel like yesterday he was just a little one, our only baby, but then sometimes it’s hard to remember ever being without all 3 #thedriedigermuskateers!
.
This weekend has been so needed and so heart healing, the sunshine, the time as a family and finally seeing some friends we have missed for the past little while. 
It feels like God is giving me back my October - weather wise, and I couldn’t be more grateful 🍂

Clearly, it’s Camdon’s world and we’re just living in it (see pic, Camdon’s like “heyyyy I’m mickeyyy”) 😂 We had the best time celebrating our sweet Halloween boy turning TWO! Special thanks to my mama, @hgrant7566 and my aunt @demariswardadams for all their help, everything turned out so perfect! Between the huge bouncy slide, the piñata, the ice cream man, the presents, and all the love from our friends and family, he had the best day- seeing him so happy just brings me so much joy! We love you Camdon Tyler, more than we could ever put into words! (Limit was 10 photos, but there so many more good ones) 🧡🎃🖤👶🏼 #camdontyler #camdonturnstwo #happybirthday #birthdayparty #twoyearsold #mamasboy #timeslowdown #halloweenbaby #toddler #toddlerlife #mickeyhalloweenparty #mamasheart #sweetboy #boymom #firstbaby #firstborn #babymickey #mickeymouse #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #motherhoodthroughinstagram

Our breastfeeding journey is just hitting the 13.5 month mark. I never imagined it lasting this long, nor did I ever imagine feeling the way I do about it ending. Bittersweet is the best way to describe it.
.
I dont know when it's going to end, but I know that it makes me sad that it will. It will be nice to get a part of myself back, but it will be the end of a big part of my relationship with Ryan. #babiesdontkeep

This little supergirl has been keeping us on our toes lately and making us second guess everything. It’s like the older she gets, the more there is for us to learn and we are constantly hoping we got what it takes to get you to what you ought to be❤️ #Liv #mamasheart #daddyslove

I’ve never really been a selfie girl. I don’t think I’m cool enough or confident enough to pull them off. But here’s to trying to be more comfortable in my own skins (sans the Snapchat animal filters).

Mama,
You were given these children - YOU. No one else. You were given these children because you are what they need. You have the soul to love them, even on their hard days. You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need. You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay.  You are their sunshine☀️ and their comfort💗. On the days that you are questioning yourself, just  remember this. You’ve got this. ❤️

➰You are at your best when you are authentic to your core. You have to be who you are, not what they call you.➰ I used to be the girl who worried what people thought of me, wanted EVERYONE to like me. Other people’s issues and how they would treat me would highly burden me—& because I was held down by these particular chains, it shaped the way I made certain decisions.

It’s largely why when I saw my friend bringing in six figures off her smartphone in just a few months and retiring her husband to be a full time family I was hesitant to go try to do the same. What will people think? How silly, right—as if these people I was worried about had anything to do with my future.

When I finally realized that the only thing I had to lose was my negative mindset and people who truly weren’t “for” me, things had never been more crystal clear. The doors 🚪 I watched God open up over and over again confirmed tenfold that when you live for an audience of ☝🏼 and chase your calling, BIG things happen!! For 31 months I have been retired from Corporate America — something I never thought would happen, but taking the opportunity God laid before me and working off my smartphone with the best, Christian company out there, has made it not only possible, but it’s made it our REALITY. We surround ourselves only with the most positive people who also chase their dreams and cheer us on each and every day!! Don’t be afraid to take a chance on YOU! Nothing in the world is more freeing than letting go of the people who don’t truly have your best interest at heart & locking arms with the people who do! Lives are changing left and right during this season and I want to help YOU, too! I know you’ve been watching, been scared to reach out, but the time is now! I will be mentoring 11 more people this month to earn the maximum amount of cash before Christmas along with a lucrative income—all of it off your smartphone! Message me or text ‘READY’ to 334:663:4708 and let’s talk about what this business can do for YOU!!✨

❤️2014 vs 2018... Same beautiful girls. Same tired mama. Same full heart. ❤️
❤️2014 vs 2018... Same beautiful girls. Same tired mama. Same full heart. ❤️
Before we had our babies, I thought for sure I was going to be a boy mom. I may have cried when I found out the twins were “both girls”. ⠀
⠀
All those opinions you have, ideas of what YOU think your family should be, and thinking you are in control, change when you are faced with something different. For us it was potentially loosing 2 of our children. ⠀
⠀
Lilly and Penny were born at just 28 weeks and 6 days. ⠀
⠀
I was placed on bed rest at the hospital at exactly 28 weeks and pumped full of everything possible to try and keep our little girls in my womb. Every minute mattered as we prayed for more time. ⠀
⠀
I journaled every time we prayed and when anyone would pray with us. We learned what it looked like to hand our children over to the lord and refused to stop praying and believing God was in control. ⠀
⠀
Lilly and Penny were born at just 2 pounds after 6 hard days of fighting with all that we had to keep them in. I prayed that they would cry when they came out and I will never forget the sound of their LOUD cries as each one was miraculously pulled from my pre mature womb. I knew this was Jesus giving me hope in my weary heart. ⠀
⠀
Jesus became real to me during the 54 total days we spent in the hospital. My marriage changed, my opinions changed, my heart changed and my identity found its proper home. ⠀
⠀
Our precious little girls are now 5 and we are different people because of their birth. ⠀
⠀
As much as I want to control God, my life, their life, and every other circumstance in my life, I just can’t. And to be honest I don’t want to anymore. Even though I cannot see and often don’t understand God’s will, timing or decisions I have learned to trust him anyway. ⠀
⠀
My life is his, my marriage is his, my children are his, and my will is his. ⠀
⠀

Champagne, pool floats, laughter, and lots of food…the best kind of work trip! Am I right?! 🍾🍩😍
.
✨Find your tribe. You know, the ones who make you feel the most you. The ones that lift you up and help you remember who you really are. The ones that remind you that a blip in the road is just that, a blip. They are the ones that when you walk out of a room, they make you feel like a better person than when you walked in. They are the ones that even if you don’t see them face to face as often as you’d like, you see them heart to heart.✨

This is my tribe. These are my girls. And I found them all online. How crazy is that?! #coachlifestyle

Saturday thoughts....Things I love most about you: Your kind and sensitive heart. Your silly, sometimes wild ways. Your crooked little smile. The fact that you wanna listen to Taki Taki on repeat. Things I’m working through: You have your mama’s mouth. 😩 P.S. Sorry you got my ears. Now you know why my hair will forever be long. Love you always, kid. ❤️ #myboy #mamasheart

Happy Saturday! Who’s house is still standing after last night? 🙋🏼‍♀️ (Ours is just about, we definitely lost a roof tile or two & half the contents of our recycling bin 🙈)
.
My parents are down to visit today, just a quick trip this time as they’ve found a house down here (yaaaaay 🏡) so all being well with the chain 🔗 they should be down in the next few months! 🤞🏼
.
Today we went to the garden centre for lunch & to see the Christmas decorations, then had a walk nearby to their new house. It’s right by the sea & these cute little woods in a gorgeous area - it’s perfect!
.
I so hope it all goes smoothly from here, would love to have them close by...😍 How far from your families do you live?
.
Hope everyone’s having a lovely weekend 🌲🍂🍁

Day 9: Favorite picture. I have several but this is my favorite because for several reasons. Luke's nickname is Feisty Fox. We had weekly photo shoots with our  Favorite Nurse.  I vividly remember this day. I thought he was so close to being discharged. He stayed 5 more weeks!! #november #day9 #prematurityawareness #prematurityawarenessmonth #nicu #nicufamily #nicujourney #24weeker #mamahood #miraclebaby #nicurn #mamasheart
I can relate to so much of what Julia has to say about our awesome supplements and I think you will, too!! “The difference that time + knowledge + dedication can make is huge 😳 Because I played sports for so long, when I stopped & all the trash I was eating started showing i was so disappointed in myself. I’d never seen my body be a reflection of what I ate. When it did, I became so uncomfortable. Not only that, but forever I struggled with serious acne.

I can relate to so much of what Julia has to say about our awesome supplements and I think you will, too!! “The difference that time + knowledge + dedication can make is huge 😳 Because I played sports for so long, when I stopped & all the trash I was eating started showing i was so disappointed in myself. I’d never seen my body be a reflection of what I ate. When it did, I became so uncomfortable. Not only that, but forever I struggled with serious acne.

“There she is! THAT is my girl!” It was my thought this morning when Anais woke up with a smile, and proceeded to giggle and scoot around the bed. This is the happy child that I know and cherish. She’s been hiding a bit lately, but glimpses return and fill me with so much joy! A restful night of sleep was all it took to restore her personality. It’s amazing what a solid night of sleep can do!
.
I cannot blame Anais for her fussy behavior—it’s been a really, really challenging period for her. Three rounds of antibiotics for an ear infection, croup, and five teeth (a sixth on the way!) have plagued her with pain and frustration. In the midst of battling these growing pains, she’s turned to me as her respite—I’m the person to whom she can let go and release her fury. I’m the safe haven in a big world. It’s a beautiful notion, but gosh it’s really, really hard to be the sounding board for all her frustration. I love that I am her preferred safety and comfort, but it’s really hard when you just need comfort of your own.
.
Motherhood. It continues to be a beautiful balance—and I’m so honored with this journey. Even on the days I look less than human due to exhaustion. Which, let’s be honest, is most days! I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world, though.

Customer service shout out! Last week Hunter’s owlet monitor stopped working. So I called the technical support line and they sent me a brand new sensor. I’m so happy to have it working again, I for sure sleep better.

The three, almost four, year old is doing worksheets at the kitchen table. With her block “cake” in tow.

The 3rd grader just finished a handwriting lesson and is entertaining the almost two year old in the living room.

The 1st grader is taking a phonics test I am administering in the play/class-room while I’m nursing the 7 week old.

Our little student this morning before the class. It’s a quick walk since school in our building, and Mathis loves walking on the leaves so I took an opportunity to take couple of snaps. #mathisliamjourney#19monthsold#kidsootd#toddler#kidsstyle#citykids
There is so much to be #thankful for in this one photo. My 3 healthy and happy kids. The fact that my kids like to help with things like raking the leaves. That we have a good sized and safe back yard for them to play in. For them getting along and working together like this. My mama heart was bursting when I took this picture. I could use them for every day of #30DaysThankful2018 and extend the challenge indefinitely. Thank you, God, for the blessings of my children, and all the things that come along with them.

Happy flex your joy Friday from these cuties!! 😍😍 ⠀
⠀
If anyone knows how to flex their joy it’s these two and they are constantly teaching me how to do just that! ⠀
⠀
So I wanted to share some Things I’ve learnt from them about just that. JOY. ⠀
⠀
🌻Smile just because. It makes your heart light! ⠀
🌻Be in awe of something you would normally overlook. ⠀
🌻Jump in puddles after a rain storm. Catch snow flakes on your tongue. ⠀
🌻Laugh. All the time. For no reason in particular. Just laugh. ⠀
🌻Give yourself positive affirmation and praise when you achieve something big or small. ⠀
🌻Be silly. Life’s to short to be serious all the time.⠀
🌻Run into someone’s arms, hug them tight and feel the tightness in your chest release. ⠀
🌻Never stop believing in yourself. You have the power to do great things. 🤗 ⠀
⠀
Have an epic Friday ya’ll and don’t forget to flex your joy today. ✌🏻 ⠀

My mornings look so different now than they did when I first became a momma at 25—

Fat burning coffee ☕️ and all the snuggles with my 5th little baby, my sweet boy, 💙 and there’s not a thing I would change even if I could! ✨

Hunter has a big day yesterday. He got fitted for his boots and bars. His doctor said his foot looks great so we need to wear the braces to keep that foot straight. Feeling grateful for modern medicine today.

Rolling into the w e e k e n d like
Rolling into the w e e k e n d like
Gahhh, this boy. This sweet loving, tender-hearted, lovebug rocked my whole world, shook it all around and completely turned it upside down this season! Since the day he and his Daddy came at me about playing football, tackle football, I have vehemently stuck to my guns and said abso-fucking-lutely NOT. NO! No tackle football! To the point of a handful of arguments between Todd and I. My argument always being, I am not going to watch my son get brutally knocked up and down the field. I cannot knowingly send him into the trenches! Sooo, NO. My heart, nor my mind, could handle the thought of what he could potentially endure. I’ve seen the movies. I’ve read the statistics. But what I never considered was his passion, his absolute obsession and intoxicating love affair he has for this game. Football... all. damn. day. 
Seeing him on the field, stepping into multiple roles, both defensively and offensively, while being an encouraging and supportive teammate, I have come to know I cannot deny him this game. It doesn’t mean I give into his whims fully. At least, not yet. Learning and drilling down on the basics in flag football for a few more years will do him some good. But I think I would be starving him of something that sets his soul on fire if I continue down the path of giving into MY fear and resistance. Not to mention, he is just naturally good and has a ridiculous understanding of the game. I guess one could say Madden on the Xbox paid off! Ha!
So here I am, in a Mother’s quandry of wanting to keep my son safe and out of harm’s way, while allowing him to live out his passion, with the very thing he is steadfast about doing. I know, if someone told me I could never practice yoga I would be devastated. And with that, I am certain I have my answer. 
Gunnar, my fearless boy, here is my promise to you... You are free to roam about the football field, fully padded up, while your Mama and Daddy and your sisters cheer you on something fierce. Just promise me you will outrun, outsmart, outplay anyone coming at you!

I’ve constantly stated that I want to raise a daughter who is strong, confident in her talents, and knows her value cannot be measured. I want to raise a daughter who becomes a woman that changes the world. What I’m learning, though, is it’s going to be a long road of patience and lessons...for me.
.
She may have only turned one last week, but Anais’ strength and will have been let loose like wildfire! I didn’t really understand what it meant to have a strong-willed child until I recently experienced my own flesh-and-blood throw temper tantrum after temper tantrum for not getting her way. I keep questioning whether I’ve spoiled her in her short 12 months on Earth, but I also know that she has an extremely inquisitive and independent streak. And honestly, I can’t blame her for that—she got that from me!
.
Having a strong-willed child is a blessing that needs to be nurtured. It’s a gift that needs time to grow. And it’s a opportunity to guide my daughter as she develops her talents and passions.
.
Precious, Anais: you are such a beautiful woman. Your curiosity. Your strength. Your passion. Your joy. And your intelligence. You have such a beautiful light, and I am so honored to walk with you as you develop your gifts and make your mark on this world. I love you so much, peanut!

Maria got carried away by a story which we have read lately about an owl called Olly. The owl was very wise (just like the rest of the owls are, I guess🤔) and she enjoyed giving people advice. Her recommendations were always helpful and Maria wondered whether Olly existed in real life. I told her owls came out at night so we could go and search for her, and see if we could find her. She got so excited when she finally found Olly. She kept showing 🤫🤫🤫 to me so I wouldn’t scare Olly away.😂😂😂My little princess, I will do my best to keep life a fairly tale for you for as long as I can! •

We haven’t doing anything particularly ‘instagrammable’ these last few days, so here’s a lazy #TBT to my little Thea Belle, only 10 days old asleep on my lap 😭💔
.
Has anyone else been watching @wtvchannel #deliveringbabies with @emmawillisofficial ? I’ve literally cried at every episode 😂🙈 I only seem to watch these types of programmes whilst pregnant, but I’m hooked 😍 Can’t beat a fresh, newborn baby! Makes me so excited to meet our little boy 💙
.
However ✋🏼 he can wait for another 18 weeks please ‘cause we have A LOT to sort out before he gets here 😂🙈
.
Hope everyone has had a lovely day 🍁🍂

Hope everyone has had a lovely day 🍁🍂 . . . . . . #ukparentblogger  #mummybloggersuk  #ukmums  #igmums  #sussexmums  #newbornbaby  #sahmuk  #10daysold  #21weekspregnant  #babynumber2  #newbornbabygirl  #mamasheart  #mynameismama  #ohheymama  #takemyheartdear  #writeyouonmyheart  #treasuringlittlememories  #thingsiwanttoremember  #myfirstborn  #sleepingbeauty  #discoverunder5k  #nestingly  #pocket_sweetness  #unitedinmotherhood  #thatsdarlingmotherhood  #developinglife  #miracleofbirth 
Back from the brink!! 🤢🤒😷
.
All 3 kiddos are on the mend. This poor little miss has been so down and out and I missed having her giggles and demands all day! She's still going to be absent from preschool for another day to be on the safe side but no more fever whoop!
.
So grateful for the freedoms coaching affords me to be her full time BFF through it all. Did it make the work hustle a little more intense?? Absolutely! I've got a little catching up to do. But that's a pretty fair trade for a life with my babes by my side.

Gimme that WAH hustle life EVERY day!❤❤❤

I love memories of you #reptardave...you are #myfavoritehuman! I can't believe a year ago we were fighting to keep your numbers up and keep you #healthy...and now? Now you're 20 lbs, over 2.5 ft and a healthy #lilman that has taught me the purest love on earth. #Thankyou #God for such a #crazy, #beautiful #blessing and #answeredprayer.

Justin and I celebrated 10 years in May. I wanted to do something that we would cherish and remember. ⠀
⠀
So...my dear friend @amandakphotoart agreed to photograph us in an intimate setting so that we could read “vows” really they were letters ☺️ to each other. We laughed a lot, cried and felt really thankful for God’s goodness. ⠀
⠀
I know there is so much I could share (the good, the bad, the ugly haha), but tonight I just want to be thankful for this man and these beautiful memories my friend captured for us! ⠀
⠀
Thank you also to everyone else who was so generous to help us ❤️⠀

➰You are at your best when you are authentic to your core. You have to be who you are, not what they call you.➰ I used to be the girl who worried what people thought of me, wanted EVERYONE to like me. Other people’s issues and how they would treat me would highly burden me—& because I was held down by these particular chains, it shaped the way I made certain decisions.

It’s largely why when I saw my friend retiring her husband and bringing in six figures off her smartphone in just a few months, I was hesitant to go try to do the same. What will people think? How silly, right—as if these people I was worried about had anything to do with my future.

When I finally realized that the only thing I had to lose was negative people out of my life, things had never been more crystal clear. The doors 🚪 I watched God open up over and over again confirmed tenfold that when you live for an audience of ☝🏼 and chase your calling, BIG things happen!! For 31 months I have been retired from Corporate America — something I never thought would happen, but taking the opportunity God laid before me and working off my smartphone with the best, Christian company out there, has made it not only possible, but it’s made it our REALITY. We surround ourselves only with the most positive people who also chase their dreams and cheer us on each and every day!! Don’t be afraid to take a chance on YOU! Nothing in the world is more freeing than letting go of the people who don’t truly have your best interest at heart & locking arms with the people who do! Lives are changing left and right during this season of promise and I want to help YOU, too! I know you’ve been watching, been scared to reach out, but the time is now! I will be mentoring 17 more people this month to earn the maximum amount of cash before Christmas along with a lucrative income—all of it off your smartphone! Message me or text ‘READY’ to 334:663:4708 and let’s talk about what this business can do for YOU!!✨

M A D E M O I S E L L E | She’s my little Miss Personality - also her expression is exactly how I feel right now.

Growing everybody always told me I had the craziest facial expressions and I always rejected it but now that I see Lucy, I get it. Some talk with their hands we talk with our facial expressions. .
