We went to a Christmas tree farm and the ground was littered with walnuts! Of course our girls took notice of those cool round objects and when we showed them that you could crack them open and eat what’s inside, they went nuts with excitement! 😂 Walnuts are their new fav now!

First one in, first one out! Clara  lost her first tooth today - on her last day of being 4. And I’m just crying over here at her big-kid ness. Swipe to see her baby pic of when her two bottom teeth grew in. All her teeth grew in pairs 😂. Oh, and she lost the tooth in the grocery store while eating a donut!

She fought sleep hard tonight. Wouldn’t relax. Wouldn’t go in her room. Just wanted Mommy. So I laid down, and she said “my mommy, my mommy”, pointed to me, and wanted to lay on me. So I said come on over baby girl. She fell asleep within a minute. 
_
She will be 3 years old in two short months and her MOST favorite place in the world to sleep is still on my chest. These moments are the moments I dreamt about while pregnant with her. I am the luckiest in the world to be her Mommy. Thank you God for this girl.

Those puppy eyes 😍 I was dead set on having my first baby-free lunch with girlfriends but I just couldn’t leave her! She would get to bond with her grandparents for a few hours and I would get to enjoy some much needed me-time, it made sense mentally but emotionally, I was getting separation anxiety all week just thinking about it. Mamas guilt is a work in progress 😌

🔥FUN FACT 🔥You don't have to be perfect to be confident.

I've had people tell me that I'm intimidating before and I go what?!?! like are you crazy I'm a nervous wreck!! 😂. But here's the thing, I was never the prettiest one in class or the smartest or most popular, so i had to work at becoming confident in exactly who I was. .

You're not going to be everyone's cup of tea and that is 💯% okay. Not everyone is going to understand your goals or dreams and that is 💯% okay.

CONFIDENCE STARTS WITH YOU.

1. Stop comparing🙅. Try to realize that you are you and you cannot be that other person so why not be the BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF? .

2. Think Positively🙃. Ain't nobody got time for negativity let's be honest we all get in funks but it's f*cking draining. So change how you're seeing things and know that you're working towards more.

3. Shit happens💩.
Mistakes, failures, etc, everybody makes them - noone is perfect so why try to be? .

4. Don't let anyone define you👑. You're you, don't try to fit into some weird perfect mold that someone thinks you should fit into - because then they obviously don't love you for you.

5. Set personal goals☑️. Whether it's a fitness goal, a promotion, etc., focus on working toward something.

6. Do things that make you HAPPYYYY!!!! . 😊💕. These are my thoughts at #30weekspregnant - WHAT DO YA THINK?! ✏️⬇️

So thankful for this sweet boy and his never ending smiles! He was re-evaluated yesterday by his Physical Therapist. He scored at a 8-10 month level (failed), but we are choosing to see it as a good thing! This means we will be referred out and will be able to see a PT once a week for an hour vs the once or twice a month 30 min appointments we get now! We are also being evaluated to receive Occupational Therapy as well so we are praying that goes well. While progress is slow, and I constantly worry, I know we are doing all we can to get our little man where he needs to be! Continued prayers are always appreciated! ❤️

Ethan met Santa tonight at Stockwell Harris’ family night. It was rather anticlimactic— he ended up taking a liking to Santa and didn’t care to get off his lap! •

Shiny is his favorite color. ✨

Speaking of favorites, today's blog post was all about my favorite podcasts. I started listening to the #happierpodcast once I became a stay-at-home mama and it opened my eyes (ears?) to the world of podcasts - now I rarely complete a household task without one going in the background. Loading the dishwasher and folding laundry are so much more enjoyable now 😉 Link in profile!

It’s that time of year---the END of the year where stress and mental burnout can start rearing its ugly head.  Never fear that you are the only experiencing this because I’m here to tell ya, I feel it too, as do many other women.
.
However, because I’ve struggled with anxiety and fear—I’ve searched for ways to combat it.  I’ve found ways to minimize the effects of burnout and I want to share them with you—so that if you’re carrying around any holiday stress (or any stress actually), you can apply these tips and feel better. 
Here they are, in no particular order:
.
1	 Plan ahead—this can reduce mental stress and fatigue.  Try to take 15 min each night to plan the next day’s activities or to-dos.
.
2	Use to-do lists—kind of goes with planning but organize daily activities into lists to help organize THE THOUGHTS.
.
3	STOP multi-tasking—sometimes I think women are born multi-taskers.  We can definitely get things done—however we can lose our focus in that.  So, for the next week, anytime you feel overwhelmed trying to get everything done.  Remind yourself>>take one task at a time and finish it.  Then move on to the next.  See if that helps calm things down a bit. (side note: I know we’re moms.  Just do the best you can with this step 😊)
.
4	Take a brain break—work for 30-45 minutes and then take a 5-10 minute break.  Take a walk or do something relaxing for a few.
.
5	Take time to get away—find 15 minutes of each day for sitting in silence.  If you can’t find 15 then start with 5 and work up to it.  Just “being” for a few minutes a day can actually help ground us.
.
6	Unwind before bed—spend 10-15 minutes unwinding before bed.  Turn off ALL electronics (those blue lights aren’t good for sleep) and have a cup of warm tea or some hot cocoa.  You know I’ve got a @foursigmatic coupon  for some Mushroom Hot Cacao Mix with Reishi??(shameless plug). But honestly, I wouldn’t recommend it if I didn’t believe in it.  They don't call it "Chill with Reishi" for nothin'. Discount code: SweatyMommy

🎄Christmas Crafts!🎄ok, I was not expecting this simple activity to be SUCH a hit... but Bobs is literally obsessed and has spent hours and hours making these decorations over the past 2 days! A great way to keep your kiddies entertained (while also getting some festive decor to put up on your walls and windows!😂)
.
I picked up random Christmas-themed crafting decor from dollarama: Pom poms, stickers, foam snowflakes etc.. then cut out simple Holiday shapes from construction paper, gave bobs some glue and told him to decorate! So far we have done 2 trees, a snowman, a candy cane, a stocking, a gingerbread man, and a house... and I’m sure he will be requesting more tomorrow when he’s home from daycare 😂

My darling girl is sporting a whopper of a black eye, courtesy of the lil bro (accident). Today while shopping I suggested we go say hi to santa (not their official Xmas shot) Scarlett cried and told me she didn’t want to see Santa because he  would ask about her eye and didn’t want Hendrix to be put on the naughty list before Xmas 😍😭 #sweetestgirl

The best moment was the moment the boys first saw their Christmas tree 🎄
The best moment was the moment the boys first saw their Christmas tree 🎄
When I found out I was pregnant with this one, I was completely terrified. The “normal” feelings I should’ve felt were replaced with thoughts that I wasn’t made for this. I didn’t even want to be a mom. I had my own plans. My own dreams. Being a mom was far down that list for me. Yet, here I was, holding a pregnancy test that screamed positive as loud as my ears could handle.
.
I tell you this because it’s really easy to get on IG and see people’s lives and think you know them. I can imagine some of you might think being a mom was my dream. Some of you might think staying home was something I always wanted. You may have this image of who I am in your mind and I guess I’m here to shatter that for you.
.
Not that I’m some awesome person you think twice about, because I don’t think you do, but I know how hard it is for me to remember that what people show on IG is not the complete picture — and I want to remind you that that’s true here.
.
Most of you didn’t see the tears and yelling and questioning after I saw those two pink lines. Many of you don’t know I struggled with severe depression until the third trimester and was put on medication. And you probably didn’t realize the torment I lived every day for not feeling the way I was “supposed” to feel while being pregnant.
.
I get tired of this pedestal we put women on when they become moms. As if the women who aren’t moms don’t deserve a spot in the light. It’s annoying. Especially when some of us didn’t even ask to be on the pedestal in the first place. And I’m not harping on moms or the hard work we do, because believe me, it’s the hardest job I’ve ever done, but we’ve got to start realizing that IG isn’t always reality. Sure, her house might be nicer than mine and motherhood seems to be easy for her... but that’s half of the story. There’s always more to the picture.
.
On the other side of this picture is a mom who is exhausted, had an emotional breakdown yesterday, and is wearing the biggest jeans she’s ever owned. Life doesn’t turn out like we think it will and I’m learning to be okay with that in the midst of yearning for what could have been and knowing I’m exactly where I’m meant to be right now.

I tell you this because it’s really easy to get on IG and see people’s lives and think you know them. I can imagine some of you might think being a mom was my dream. Some of you might think staying home was something I always wanted. You may have this image of who I am in your mind and I guess I’m here to shatter that for you. . Not that I’m some awesome person you think twice about, because I don’t think you do, but I know how hard it is for me to remember that what people show on IG is not the complete picture — and I want to remind you that that’s true here. . Most of you didn’t see the tears and yelling and questioning after I saw those two pink lines. Many of you don’t know I struggled with severe depression until the third trimester and was put on medication. And you probably didn’t realize the torment I lived every day for not feeling the way I was “supposed” to feel while being pregnant. . I get tired of this pedestal we put women on when they become moms. As if the women who aren’t moms don’t deserve a spot in the light. It’s annoying. Especially when some of us didn’t even ask to be on the pedestal in the first place. And I’m not harping on moms or the hard work we do, because believe me, it’s the hardest job I’ve ever done, but we’ve got to start realizing that IG isn’t always reality. Sure, her house might be nicer than mine and motherhood seems to be easy for her... but that’s half of the story. There’s always more to the picture. . On the other side of this picture is a mom who is exhausted, had an emotional breakdown yesterday, and is wearing the biggest jeans she’s ever owned. Life doesn’t turn out like we think it will and I’m learning to be okay with that in the midst of yearning for what could have been and knowing I’m exactly where I’m meant to be right now.

This Weary Bear is a Mama. The early morning riser, the lunch maker, the diaper changer, the toy collector, the boo boo kisser, the shuttle driver, the laundry folder... just the tip of the mountain of all things wrapped into motherhood.  You are amazing! Great work Mama❤️#rockyourbrokboys .

Your new mom friends, your mom of teens friends, your toddler mom friends, your loss mama friends, your dad friends, your friends struggling with infertility, your work friend, your married friends, your single friends, your funny friend, your confident friend, the friend you know is struggling. Check on them all.
Even your seemingly strongest friend, may be fighting the darkest of battles. I can tell you first hand how good a person can get at hiding it. Because I've done that, I've hid it. But I can also tell you how much a hug, a "hey thinking of you" or and invite to lunch can mean. And when you do check on them, listen to them. Listen to the words they say and the words they may not say out loud, I think you know what I mean. It's not enough to just say you're checking in, you have to be ready to help, and maybe even swoop in and pick them up off the floor. And sometimes you will get to see how you helped, they will ask you to grab them a dinner or watch their kids or take them to an appointment. But, maybe you won't. Maybe you will never know how much that "hey, just checkin on ya" will mean to them. 
This time of year can be an especially hard time for people. It's a time of celebration and family for many, but for various reasons, it's a reminder of hard times too And while it's important all year round, they may need it even more right now. Check on them. That person that's been on your heart, call them. That friend you haven't heard from, stop by their house. Give those you see out and about a smile and a hello-sometimes that's all but the best thing you can do. 
And in case you're reading this, and you need it....How are you doing? I'm checking on you, and I'm telling you that you are important, you do matter, I want you here, and you are so, so loved ❤️ #youmatter #checkin #musingsonmotherhood #rootandrise

Just some girly things for our sweet girl ✨
Just some girly things for our sweet girl ✨
S c h o o l s  o u t // For those of you about to embark on the summer holidays with your school age children... we're wishing you all the very best!!
We thought we'd kick the holidays off with 3 great activity ideas that we stole from  some dear friends . These might be helpful for breaking up the week without creating too much extra work!  1) Baking Day - make one day of the week baking day and let your children choose a recipe that they would like to make, this activity can also include going to supermarket to get the ingredients and can tie in with other errands you may need to run. Our friends tell us that their kids of all ages love making a yummy sweet treat!  2) Picnic Day - choose a day of the week where you pack a little picnic and take the kids to a local park or beach for an alfresco lunch. Get them involved in preparing the food and making a list of what to take. Even just setting up a nice picnic in the garden at home is a sweet novelty and a great way of making lunchtime a little special.  3) Friday Night Movie Night - make yourself a fort in the lounge, pop some corn and get cosy for a family movie. It will be a highlight of the week for everyone, a great way to mark the end of another week together.  If you're feeling up to it you could even pair this activity with homemade pizzas which the kids can make themselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happy holidays!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Love Essie &  Lou xoxox

Another busy weekend ahead! Tonight I have chrissy drinks with my work ladies followed by Christmas drinks with my girlfriend's on Saturday night 🥂 Every year us girls get together and have a little chrissy celebration so having a few kid free hours over the weekend will be nice and well deserved if I do say so myself 😂 thanks to my mum and hubby for allowing me some time out, really appreciate you both 😘

This one is SO sweet, but also such a stinker sometimes🙈🙃 Sour then sweet! Today she told me, "mommy santa saw Eli through his window being a bad boy so he's getting now presents but I'm getting a lot"😂 So apparently, Santa only talks to her🎅🏻 With toddlers, it is never a boring day that goes by! What is something funny your kids have said?! Let's have a laugh in the comments.

Fun and easy LETTER MATCH activity || Benjamin has been showing a lot of interest in letters and spelling lately, so I set this activity up for him to practice letter recognition (and for me to see what letters we need to work on 😉) .
.
🌲 Draw or print a Christmas tree, write letters of the alphabet on the tree and on any sort of plain stickers you have (no stickers? Just use paper and cut it out. Or sticky notes!) Invite your child to match the letters, easy as that! .
. 🌲 We started the activity together (you can even practice turn taking), then I had B finish it while I was feeding the baby. .
.
🌲 To extend the activity, have your child come up with a word for each letter! Don’t forget to guide your child and most importantly have fun! .

Question: Do you think mothers should have careers? I stumbled across a post on the ‘gram today that basically insinuates that mothers working outside the home is unbiblical. It’s a touchy subject, but I’m curious to know what you think because it’s causing quite a stir. Are you a working Christian mom? Are you happy with your choice? Do you feel judged for pursuing your passions? If you choose to comment, please be kind. 🖤

If I decide to take a shower, it’s safe to assume that the *very* moment the water starts running, one of my children will have to use the bathroom or will need to ask me 3,400 questions or will even feel called to hop right into the shower with me.
•
If I sit on the couch—or actually literally any surface at all—there’s gonna be a little heinie in my lap pretttty quickly.
•
If when I’m sleeping, I decide to try to take up my fair share of space in our bed—it may be tough for me because there’s likely a small child curled up on me.
•
If I’m eating, they will take what’s on my plate or sit directly on top of me, essentially acting as a food block from me and my precious sustenance.
•
If my hair is down, they take that as a signal for them to start playing with it, yanking it, brushing it, “braiding it” (twisting it into knots), “making it pretty”...
•
If even a hint of cleavage is showing, my breastfeeding 14-month-old runs like the wind to pull down my shirt and latch right on.
•
If my almost 3-year-old sees me putting on my robe, she asks if she can come inside it with me. Literally. I close it around her and tie it under her and it acts like a robe/carrier. (Don’t try that at home.)
•
Almost every second of the day, someone is touching me. And that can feel like a lot with three small humans—especially when I’m exhausted or my anxiety is running high or my hormones are all out of whack.
•
But honestly, today, right after we took this picture—Natalie jumped on my lap, too, and I started singing “all my babies, all my babies, allll my babieeees on my lap” to the tune of “oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’ Clementine” and they were LOVING every second of it. Like, eating it right up. They were giggling and singing with me and it was just one of those small, simple moments when I was like— “yep... this is awesome”—no matter how many peeps are up in my grill 24/7. 🤪

She keeps us on our toes and pushes us to be our best. She’s spicy, curious, determined, and perpetually happy. It’s such a gift to see life through your eyes. #belikephoebelouise

Throwback to #babyben is making my heart melt. This now 2.5 year old got a big boy bed this past week after performing some crib escapes. Now we are playing nightly whack a mole with attempting to keep him in bed. Ahhh I miss the crib. But each night is improving. These memories have me thinking about all the things I thought I would do as a mom before I knew better. That’s the theme of next weeks post “Things I Judged Moms for Before I Understood” Its lighthearted but speaks to the tremendous strides and challenges we all face in our motherhood journeys. All of those “My future children will never” moments are pretty much just cosmic karma. Of course we all have our principles and I don’t mean to say those will bend, but my 22 year old self knew about as much about parenting as I do about rebuilding a spaceship. Bless. My. Sweet. (Idiot) Heart. || What are some things you thought you’d never do??

Yeah, it’s important for my sanity. My health. My happiness and confidence and jean size.

But today’s 20 minute workout helped shape this little one’s entire future. Her. Entire. Life.

So essentially, my excuses were told to stfu💁🏻‍♀️ Thanks for the quick butt-kicking, @shaunt. See ya tomorrow.😏 .

Yeah, it’s important for my sanity. My health. My happiness and confidence and jean size. But today’s 20 minute workout helped shape this little one’s entire future. Her. Entire. Life. So essentially, my excuses were told to stfu💁🏻‍♀️ Thanks for the quick butt-kicking, @shaunt. See ya tomorrow.😏 . . . . . . . . . . . #motherhoodmoments  #shaunt  #transform20  #transformationthursday  #postpartumbody  #postbabybody  #vbac  #5monthsold  #learningtocrawl  #babygirl  #momof2girls  #settheexample  #theyrewatching  #raisinggirls  #momofgirls  #raisingdaughters  #fitmomof2 
In the last 6 months, we have not only moved, but I became a part owner of a self defense school (@columbus_selfdefense_fitness ) AND we became foster parents. 😅

In all of that craziness, my dōTERRA business has slowed slightly and I definitely haven’t had time to share or post much about it. But I am still using my oils like a crazy person and it’s been exciting to see how that pours over into my other business.

I diffuse oils at the school and I also use On Guard concentrate to clean our mats. I add it to our mop bucket and mop away! There is a lot of blood, sweat and tears that happen on these mats (I’ve left all three on them myself 😳😂) and it gives me peace of mind to know that after I mop, those germs are loooong gone. 
Please don’t ever hesitate to ask me any oil questions you may have. I’m not pushy and I answer questions about all different brands of oils on a regular basis. 😂 My health and my business have been helped greatly because of these amazing oils and that is always my motivation in sharing...to help others. 💛

PS. Any tips on how to not make your hands look like an ogre in pictures?? 😂😳

We devoted yesterday to making my Gramma’s ginger snaps. In the morning, the big boys pulled out all the ingredients from the recipe list. Then we doubled, measured, and blended it all into a massive dough, which we put in the fridge while we went to music lessons.
.
After lunch, we set up the table here to roll 12 dozen little dough balls in sugar, and honestly, it’s always my favorite part. All of the kids, except the littlest, were fully able to join in—it’s easy to do, deliciously hand-on, and impossible to do wrong—though , when set free from his high chair, little guy did manage to abscond with a dough ball which he deftly popped into his mouth. #fifthkid #survivalskills
.
He’s obviously plotting that move in this pic 😂
.
Afterwards, I released them all to watch a Christmas movie (have any of you seen Santa Paws 2? It’s surprisingly cute 🐶), though my 8yo opted to mastermind the cookie kitchen. He basically took over the baking operation once I walked him through the first round. 💙
.
So I sat at the kitchen table and did some stitching on my Christmas village while chatting easily with my son. Seeing him at work, doing what he loves, and being a little more free to just observe...it’s amazing what a difference a year can make when the kids begin to own the family traditions. 🍪

Max has officially finished his first season of soccer. It was interesting...he pretty much ran behind the posse of toddlers kicking the ball. The ball even came right to his feet a couple of times and he stood there confused. 😂 Maybe something else will be more his speed? Have your kids played a sport and wasn’t too great at it?

HELPFUL HINT: I add the moisturizer in with my Savy powder foundation. (making it a liquid foundation) for days when I feel I’d like more coverage in my makeup! . . 
Spot treatment is a LIFE saver for me! Whenever i get a petty new friend, you better believe it’s gone over night!!

When you want to be the most Christmasey Mom on the block... but in reality your struggling to keep anything together day-to-day, let alone checking anything off the never ending Christmas to-do list 🎄😭
.

This photo pretty much nails my feelings today.
.
I really want to be all jolly & full of Christmas spirit, but my body has other plans.
I was a little bit terrified but reached out to you all in my stories tonight & the response is already enormous- (so hold tight I promise to get back to all of you!) But in advance thank you all so much❤️ Just the fact that I already see that I am FAR from being alone is such a relief.

I’ll let all of you ponder about this one, as I think with that with some thought you’ll see how true this is. I know I have learned a lot from my kids about kindness, relationships, forgiveness, and even about not sweating the small stuff. Forgiveness is a big one for me as I tend to hold on to things. Ever notice how your child can be so angry with you for not letting them do something/ have something and a minute later, hug and kiss you and want to play with you like nothing happened? Or when kids argue one day and are best friends the next day? .

What are some things that your children have taught you?

Here’s the thing. I will radiate positivity wherever I go, I will smile at strangers, I will strike up conversations and respond in a friendly manner when people talk to me. I am loving sunshine and rainbows, but, come at me, bro, and you WILL get Mama Bear. 🐻
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have strong women in my family to look up to, my Grandmom Genevieve was fierce! She was among the first women to serve in the Armed Forces during WWII and a women’s rights activist. She was an artist, a writer, and, hell, she was whatever she wanted to be. That’s what she taught me. That I can do whatever I want in this life. That I am strong.
That I am an equal person.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had a man ask me today during a heated exchange, “where’s your husband?” OH SNAP. OH NO HE DI’N’T! Where’s my husband? What freaking century am I am? What - do you want to call him over to “get me in line”? Oh hell no.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Maybe he thought I would just sit and take his scolding, maybe I shocked him that I actually stood up for myself, but I tell you what, in this life, my life, I ain’t sittin’ down for anyone, and especially not someone that comes at me all judge-y and imposing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To all the ladies in the house, have you experienced a time when a man tried to “put you in your place” or made you feel less than because of your gender?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are so many times I have experienced crap like this and I feel so very fortunate to have been around strong women all my life who set the example for me, who lit my fire, who helped me understand my worth.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not everyone is so fortunate, I recognize, so I will always stand up... and stand up for them if I need to.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am woman. Hear me. Hear this!

I love #christmasshopping 🛍🎁 like I really love it. I love picking out gifts for ppl. I pride myself on being a great gift giver. A thoughtful gift giver...My holiday shopping is about 75% complete...but it feels like I'm behind due to Thanksgiving being so early this year. I'm loving how long the "holiday season" feels this year. Wishing Thanksgiving would be early every year. I had my #xmastree up before December which was a week earlier than usual. 🎁🎅🎄Thoughts on holiday shopping? Like it? Love it? Hate it? 🛍🎁🎫 #holidayhustle #christmastime #thankful 📸// @briryma

Mad props to my husband for pulling off the ULTIMATE surprise for me- tickets to the Nutcracker Ballet, just the two of us ❤️ I was completely shocked, haven’t gone since I was like 12 & I’ve been collecting nutcrackers since I was in kindergarten! I’ll be the first to admit that I’m awful with surprises but this was AMAZING & I couldn’t stop smiling 😍🙌🏻 #latergram •

What’s the best surprise you’ve gotten this year?! 🎁 •

Ps, for anyone wondering.. I have over 160 nutcrackers in various shapes, sizes & designs-no two are the same either 💕

It always seems that whenever one of our babies is having a hard time/ being as naughty as can be (Will right now) the other is an angel and then they swap 👼🙈

I’m incredibly blessed with everything I need in life. I am working so hard towards everything I want. In life, being a mom, work, a wife. I’m a FIRM believer that if you love life, life will love you in return. Never forget how blessed you are. Don’t be negative when you have SO much to be positive about. This was such a special moment for me. Realizing how fast my little tiny baby was growing up. Reading books with daddy and mommy, is our favorite time of the day ❤️
