It my niece Honey’s seventh birthday!! 🧡🍁 love this little girl so much! She was the first little one added to our family & she definitely changed the meaning of family for us. Five years before she was born on this day, we lost my mamaw to cancer at only 53 years old. It was heart breaking and our family was broken for those five years. While I still miss my mamaw so much, I like to think she sent us Honey on November 21st (2 months early btw) so we wouldn’t be so sad on that day anymore. 🧡
I would like to interrupt your day to inform you that socks went into the washer, made it to the dryer, and have found their match in the laundry basket never to have been separated from one another. 🤯 It is a glorious day in the stock kingdom. No one went missing! 🧦 🙌🏻

Thinking of turning your toddler around to see the world? We recommend turning your child around at a minimum of 2 years and 30 lbs. Always remember rear-facing is the safest so as long as they are within their car seats maximum rear facing limits they are safe. A child could potentially rear face until coser to the age of 4 years old in most car seats. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡Did you know that 9/10 car seats are used or installed incorrectly?
⭐️Our mission at Little Passengers is to ensure your child’s maximum safety.
⚠️Common car seat mistakes:
• lncorrect recline position
• More than 1” of movement in both front to back and side to side movement of car seat
• Use of both Lower Anchors(LUAS) and vehicle seat belt connection
• Incorrect chest clip position, harness shoulder height, tightness and twists
☺Let us help you in keeping your Little Passengers safe!
If your baking sessions don’t look like this then you’re doing them wrong!! I mean you’re actually probably doing them right and your goods probably don’t taste like booger’s and toe jam, but you know. Whatever. 🤪☺️💛
Bardzo dużo frajdy sprawia mi ostatnio aktywność na Instagramie. Nie lubię stać w miejscu, więc znalazłam sobie podręczny sposób na rozwój, analizę i obserwację, a z drugiej strony ćwiczenie charakteru żeby nie siedzieć z telefonem w łapie non stop.
Miło mi bardzo słyszeć, że lubicie mnie czytać i słuchać. Każda taka wiadomość dodaje wiatru w skrzydła. Lofciam ❤️
Bałam się, że macierzyństwo mnie ograniczy wewnętrznie, we własnym rozumieniu i zewnętrznie, w postrzeganiu przez innych. Zajebiście łatwo jest żyć z takim maluchem z dnia na dzień i mieć z tego ogrom satysfakcji.
Od początku zależało mi żeby nie zatracić własnej osobowości i niezależności w tym szaleństwie. Wymaga to sporo wysiłku w organizacji, najczęściej kosztem snu.
Daleka mi jest frakcja #jestembojestes Eee? Serio? Jeśli już, to chyba odwrotnie. .
Nie oceniam dziewczyn, które po przyjściu na świat dziecka zawieszają swoje życie na kołku, ale trochę tego nie kumam. To dziecko pójdzie kiedyś swoją drogą, mieć swoje życie. Chyba spoko by było mieć wtedy swoje?
Taka refleksja na wieczór. I noście czapki, bo zimno jak jasna cholera. .
Roen’s first Thanksgiving! Fun fact: his first encounter with shredded turkey was not a successful one.🤣He is, above all things, what I am thankful for! All the craziness, the driving, the common core math, the sports talk, the cheating at Mario kart, the field trip chaperoning and worry it has been beyond worth it. Watching and helping him grow has been my greatest most challenging accomplishment and it’s no where near being over. I’m very excited for the future and what great memories we have in store! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! #momlife#momming#adulting#strongmoms#happymoms#parenting#holiday#fun#thanksgiving ##waybackwednesday#baby#love#blog#kids#happy
I really am so unbelievably grateful that earlier this year - after being in the same career for almost 15 years - I followed my heart and took a leap of faith.
Becoming a mom altered my entire perspective on life and priorities. It felt like I had a calling and had no choice but to listen and follow.
Life is full of uncertainties, but what I know, unequivocally, is that certain times call for certain sacrifice.
I have no crystal ball, and don’t know what next year or the years beyond will look like - and I’m ok with that.
Right now I’m exactly where I need to be. And that’s all that matters.
I’m thankful that I can be home with my babies when they’re sick. I’m thankful to my husband who is beyond supportive in every single way possible. I’m thankful to have my family close, who on the drop of a dime, will come over to help. I’m thankful to the women I’ve met on this journey.
I am so grateful that “going to mommy’s work” is common, normal and expected now.
And I’m even more grateful to a friend who less than a year ago said to me, I have a business idea I want to run by you.
Happy Thanksgiving Friends.
May this year be the year you follow your hearts too.
Something I struggle with is knowing when to slow down and when to stop and realize that, yes I am a strong, capable, independent woman, but I also can ask for help when I need to.
That I CAN say no if I’m feeling overwhelmed.
Being confident is normally looked at as a social trait. But confidence in knowing when to be humble and ask for help is a huge part of my postpartum journey. I want to be the super mom and wife that the media portrays women to be. But I KNOW that isn’t reality. Even what you see in my feed isn’t my whole truth.
I cried two days ago because I was tired and overwhelmed and I just couldn’t get my daughter to sleep. Last night I had my husband take her because I just needed to be by myself for a little while. My broken toe has made me slow all the way down and it is incredibly difficult for me. If you have ever met me in person I am constantly moving. When I was working in restaurants I worked doubles and up to 6 days a week (once I worked two jobs seven days a week plus doubles and STILL found time to hangout with friends). This experience plus taking care of the little one has made me realize that I’m only one person. I can ask for help. I’m not June Cleaver and my life is nowhere near suburban sitcom perfection.
AND THAT IS OKAY.
Confidence is more then looking like a badass on the outside. It’s knowing who you are and what you are capable of on the inside and knowing when to slow the fluff down. ✨❤️
I love this sweet moment from @sabrinagrantn “Zach came home from work sick today. I was doing the laundry while nova was playing, and walked back in to this. 😭❤️ she crawled up in bed with him and they fell asleep together. I couldn’t resist snapping a picture. These are the moments I LIVE FOR. ❤️💘 #sabrinagrantpresets “ #momming .for.real - Have you witnessed an unforgettably sweet moment with your child and another person? Share in the comments!

Thanksgiving week. One of the weeks I look forward to most in the year. As a working mama outside of the home that means a short workweek 🙌🏻! I always look forward to short workweeks because that means more time with my family!
With that said, I am thankful for my job. I am thankful for the income it provides. I am thankful for my work environment. I am thankful for amazing co-workers. I am thankful for the most flexibility I have ever had in a corporate job.
However, it is still only a job to me. It took me a long time to realize that I can have a job and want more than that. I have declared, for a while now, I can do something I love and get paid for it. That is the path I am currently on and it has been years in the making.
If you are contemplating if you can veer away from the traditional ‘job’ I want you to know you can have a job and have it be nothing more than a job. But be prepared, once you make this decision of your job being only a ‘job’, start thinking about this question, ‘what do I want that a ‘job’ cannot provide for me?’
Do you need help answering this question?? DM me, I would love to chat and see what possibilities are out there for you!
Y’all, I never imagined this life, yet here I am basking in the glory of motherhood!

I woke up this morning to the sound of the alarm, and couldn’t understand why my alarm is going off on the weekend...until it hit me 🙈
I need coffee. But because I am also spoiling myself, I’m drinking it from the fanciest teacup I can find.
Are you a coffee or a tea person?
