When your baby daughter throws a birthday party for you that is a sleepover at her house, and you wake up to all these beauties on a Sunday morning, and you realize once again just how amazing your life is, and you cry. There was so much love and so many snuggles and so much laughter that my stomach is killing me today. My Littlest One cooked amazing food and all the girls brought me flowers and I could not have asked for anything more. Thank you so, SO much @summer_poppy for an incredible birthday party. I love you, and all those who were there with us, more than words. @nopantstime @mlleallie @emily.pidgeon @sirbagsalot @eoakley @simplicibri

My three babies around the same age 🤩 It’s crazy how much they look alike but different at the same time!! The scary thing is that it still feels like just yesterday when Aubrey & Connor were this small 😩 Soon it will be all a distant memory for Eden too!!!
I had this weekend totally to myself (this NEVER happens!) and as much as I would have loved to do nothing other than binge watch trash tv, take naps, and sleep late ... I HAD to take advantage of the free time and WORK MY SIDE HUSTLE! I finally got around to training videos I’ve been meaning to watch forever, returned a million emails, checked in with my bootcampers, and got myself organized for the week ahead! Oh and I did still manage to get a pedicure, take a hot bath, and do some shopping! That’s what I call BALANCE!! Feeling so accomplished ... THE perfect feeling when heading into a crazy chaotic work week!
Gracie was so excited to go and see @disneyonice last night.
We were excited to as it’s the first time in many years we’ve had a couple of hours to ourselves in the evening.
Unfortunately for whatever reason, Gracie and sleep don’t go. Most evenings are spent trying to reason with her to go to sleep and then once she’s asleep she still does wake up most nights 🤦🏻♀️😭 We’ve tried absolutely everything to improve things over the years (I’m talking about sleep consultants, specialists etc). I could tell you stories that would make any parents toes curl 😂
Since Noah has been born I’m actually sleeping in her bed as she refuses to sleep in her own, which is fun!
I’m wondering when Noah is ready to go into his cot if she might change her mind... 🙄
Anyone else in a similar situation? Please tell me there’s light at the end of the tunnel lol!
“I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of heaven and earth
And I'll praise you in this storm
And I will lift my hands
That you are who you are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise you in this storm”
This is my 3.5 month old, Bingley (aka, Bingles, Bing, Bingie Smalls) and he slept through the night for the first time last night!
Now when I say "slept through the night" I mean it. He went to sleep at 7pm and woke up at 7am! He has been waking for one feed for about 1.5 months now but last night he decided he didn't need it. I didn't cut him off or night wean him, he did it all himself! *
I'm a big believer in parents keeping those night feeds for as long as they want! But, there are definitely ways to keep night feeds AND encourage independent sleep skills and if you'd like to learn more, we should chat!! #sleptthroughthenight#imanewwoman#sleepbetterlivebetter

Social media is so often filled with only our “bests” our “happy moments” our “my life is flawless and I’m fabulous” but today I’m throwing in some real. This is me, this is a mom and a full time healthcare worker. This is working morning shifts, evening shifts and night shifts all in one week. This is six days straight and 119 hours in two weeks. This is caring for three kids, this is unmade hair and no makeup. This is the face of hard work and dedication and unlimited love. No filters, no pretending. I’m tired but I’m making it happen. Is everyday a Disney movie- absolutely not! Woodland creatures DO NOT clean my house and I don’t flip pancakes in the air and sing lovely songs. But I do care for my kids, I do clean my house, I do care for my patients, I do my best for every shift and every case, I do give my all and help my coworkers and for me that’s more then enough. Happy Sunday y’all!! #nomakeupneeded#nofilters#nofear#hardwork#momof3#momlife#workingmom#workinghard#reallife#workinghardforit#buildingmykidsfuture#buildingthelifeiwant#sleepdeprived#orlife#scrubtechlife#scrublife 😷
GUYS! This journey isn’t easy for me .... AT ALL! I struggle just like the next person .. because even though I’m a health and fitness coach .. I’m still HUMAN! Yep, sure was on point all day yesterday and then the stress of trying to learn a new computer program got to me and I went straight to the candy bowl (not sure why I even have one in my house when all it does is tease me!)! I didn’t lose control but I also didn’t stick to my meal plan. Totally not going to beat myself up over it, I continue to learn and grow and every day is a new chance to wake up and say, I EFFING got this! So here I go ...off to work this BOD some more .. stretch it, strengthen it, because after all these years, I’ve finally learned to LOVE it!
