There is this unbelievable feeling of joy in my heart when I meditate on God’s will for me. To be able to provide another mother with support and love through her journey into motherhood is all I have had on my spirit since the moment I became a mother.
When I wake I always ask God to guide my steps and words towards Him. And so I pray those same blessing to those who read this.
Peace Love and Joy on this MLK Day
A DASH OF REALITY ... One minute it's smiles and giggles the next it's full scale melt downs and pee on the floor.
This stage of being mama is really bloody hard. I'm mentally drained between arguing with this little lady and trying to keep my cool. If I'm honest I'm not enjoying it very much.
Yes there's the cuteness and the cuddles, the games and milestones, the smiles and the 'i wuv woo' and then they sleep sometimes, but the other 60% of the time right now it's being blatantly ignored.
It's screaming matches.
Food being thrown.
It's shutting the door in your face.
Refusal to do anything.
It's staring you in the face as she pees on the unit she shouldn't be standing on in the first place.
It's laughing in your face after scratching you.
Pouring water on you because she can.
It's testing my none existing patients ALL.DAY.LONG.
I breath a sigh of relief when I drop her at nursery then fill up with guilt. I'm glad to have that break but feel awful for not being around her as much whilst I'm off work just now. I'm anxious when alone with her because I don't know if I have what it takes to keep her stimulated for the full six hours or so we are solo without carnage surfacing.
Sometimes mama doesn't feel like listening to the trolls or playing games. Sometimes she just wants to sit whilst you do you.
So here I am with my unwashed, unbrushed hair and over sized Hogwarts jumper assuring anyone else who feels the same just now that it's not just you.
Like every other stage I'm sure it'll pass, but until then here's to sending ourselves to our rooms so we can sit in silence for a few minutes, the living rooms already trashed so why not leave them to it?
Go make yourself a hot drink and give them a snack to keep them quiet till you've drank it.
You're doing great!
We've got this!

Women are so hard on each other. Let’s support and not find fault!
First, Christmas Break 😬
Then, Snowmageddon 🤨
And now another day at home with your kids😳
Be sure to celebrate the legacy of a truly great American, MLK
Also, treat yourself because the kids are restless 🥂🍸🍹🥃🍷🍺☕️
So much dreams in my mind on the future. Can you feel the changes happening in your life? The #successes
, the love, the accomplishments, the #hustle
? Yep it's all because YOU are putting in the work and the dedication to get it done. So go and #slaytheday
today. Get your #Monday
going and your week started. Don't put things off for later in the week when you can do it today. Set yourself up for success and handle it TODAY so you can keep hustling the rest of the week. You got this, beautiful! Tag your BFF to remind them they got this too.
It’s time to accept the fact that they’re never EVER going to fit again.

Tommys chirpy mood seems to have disappeared along with the weekend. He's not interested in food or playing. He's flicking through books but continuously whinging as he does so and a Mum cuddle only seems to do for a few seconds. The only thing that seems to be calming him is sat in his chair watching TV and cuddling Parker. I often feel like bad mum when I let him do this. He will fall asleep eventually, but until then he just sits there and stares. But while my coffee is still midly warm, a Mums gotta do what a Mums gotta do.
Sleepy Sundays! So sleepy...... but must eat ice cream.........This video is just too precious!
Prepped and READY for week 3 of the Jan Class of the Virtual Fit Camp 👏🙌💪 just checked in with my WEEK 2 results 🤩 I love seeing weekly progress esp this late in my #postpartumjourney
bc y’all know those last 10-15 lbs are TOUGH lil suckers! -6.5 lbs these last two weeks and the best feeling of all - my MIND is lighter - I had a ton of stress piled on from the end of year and I really needed some serious self-care🖤 my new 20 min sweat morning sesh has helped immensely 🤩
Even better... my fit camp babes are getting results too! Awesome way to start the year 👯♀️👯♀️
If you’re looking in the mirror and not loving what’s looking back, if you’re spinning your wheels with the diet fad-of-the-month, if you are swimming in stress, super busy- GIRL I’ve been there - and you’re invited! You get to do this FROM HOME, the right way! Meaning putting the sweat in, eating real food, and learning how to LIVE while living this lifestyle 😘

I am jealous of all you people who "brunch" and watch Netflix all day. Sundays over here are for meal prep, laundry and a face mask in my sweats that I probably slept in last night 🤷♀️ What do your typical Sundays look like?
They let me take a baby home from the hospital 😮
You don’t want to be around when the bottle explodes.
You Gotta Friend in Me
This warms my heart so much. We woke up this morning to a #toystory
marathon. So he wanted to wear his Buzz Light Year pjs and watch with his Buzz.
For those who know me... I absolutely love every single movie and can’t wait until 4 comes out.
Basically I just hit and kick until he changes positions 🤷♀️ Follow @sammichespsychmeds
Was war das für ein schöner Sonn(en)tag ☀️
und ich waren mit den Mäusen heute eine ausgiebige Runde spazieren. Über Stock und Stein durch den Wald. War ein bisschen abenteuerlich bergauf und -ab 😅 unser Ziel war ein gemütliches Café - das hatte dann aber allerdings zu 😂
Dann hab es den Kaffee halt bei meiner Freundin. Da konnten sich die Minis wenigstens kullern, wie sie wollten. 💁🏻♀️
Ich hoffe, ihr hattet auch etwas von dem tollen Sonnenwetter!?
Macht es euch jetzt schön gemütlich ☺️
