This is a glimpse of what was going on. It’s a real moment. Not staged. One of my daughters felt this moment was worth capturing. I had just enough energy to make the bed, the pillows missed the love because the littles got tired. So, I laid there and let them sleep.

As moms you let them have their way! Especially when it gives you peace. .

Official Day 1 with 3 kiddies. Sidewalk chalk and picnic dinners in the yard. Baby steps. Maybe one day we’ll venture further out? Or maybe we’ll never leave the house again. Your guess is as good as mine. #ShaeTheoAndQuinn

Good night, my loves, I said and kissed my babies goodnight. See you in the morning. And then we laughed, and laughed. And saw each other 16 more times before sunrise 😂
⠀⠀
Let’s hope that won’t be our reality tonight 🤞We moved Julian’s crib to Adrian’s room today so the boys now sleep in the same room. Do your kids share a room? Did you share a room with your siblings? My sister and I always did! Night, night 💫

Who doesn't love a rave review! Everytime a client shares how much their life has been changed by working with me I am so grateful for the privilege of doing this work. 💗

"My husband and I had gone through 2.5 years (!) without a good night's sleep. After hitting a mental and physical breaking point, I got in touch with Kelly and she has been phenomenal! Kelly was non-judgmental, provided us with a clear and easy to follow plan, and was available for a check in every couple of days as we worked through our sleep training. Within a few weeks, my son began sleeping through the night independently. No more co-sleeping! No more night wakings! No more fighting bedtime! I cannot stress enough how much she has helped our whole family. In just 3 weeks, we have seen a complete turnaround with regards to my son's sleeping. It feels great to have my evenings and my sanity back! If you are considering hiring Kelly, do so now. It is the best money I've ever spent!" ❕

In my college years, I would’ve called this a shower beer and it would’ve been a really bad light beer. How times have changed!?! Summer time and date night felt like it needed a little something extra tonight. Mama can still #pregame when she needs to😂

Into rooftop dining and nachos?! Mason’s pick is definitely @noyanechicago. The views are gorgeous, the dishes were 💯 and the California Roll Nachos are made for sharing, unless you are Mason. 🙅🏻‍♂️

It’s been a while since I could say I worked out consistently. So glad that I have found my new plan on #beachbodyondemand. Half hour workouts and did he really just say #treatday incorporated in the nutrition plan too. Only wish it came out sooner so I would have been better prepared for swimsuit season 🤣

I made two big mistakes when I transitioned my daughter from private school to public school. This picture is from her last day of second grade at public school.
.
.
The first mistake was that I wasn't an advocate for my child. She got placed in ELL because she's trilingual. I should have fought that decision. The many extra tests throughout the year was so time-consuming.
The second mistake was I didn't prepare her for all of the bullying. Kids made fun of her hair, her modest clothes, her age, her lunch box food. The list goes on and on.
.
.
Should I have role played with her? Built her armor? When you know your child will have a hard time in school, what should a mom do?

When you realize you didn't shut the freezer fully after pulling out 8 ounces of breastmilk for a night of sleep and you end up defrosting the freezer and losing 150 ounces (95%) of your stash. 😭

MOM BOSS.
Mom bosses keep two diaper bags...one for business and one for the children. For me, being a boss is not about my invoices or income status. Being a boss is all about walking in your truth and getting ish done! It’s less about perfection and more about a person that is on a journey. Being a boss means something different to everyone. For me, I’m a mom boss. Check out the blog and find out what makes me a mom boss(by my own definition). .

We don’t want any ice cream! 🚫🍦Well, we sort of do want ice cream! But seriously stop following us you creep! Alright, fine! How much is for a ninja turtle, chaco taco 🌮 and a hello kitty bar?!

I know sometimes it’s all you can do to keep up with your day to day. You give all of yourself to your family, job, and friends. I get it. I lost myself in it- because it’s what I thought I was supposed to do. But I’ve learned that I’m no good to them if I don’t take care of myself. Stay committed to your loved ones, but invest a little in yourself and the person you want to be 💗 #Lifeiwant

Have you ever been lost, even when you think you have everything that can make you happy?🙋🏼‍♀️ That was me.

I have a good marriage, I have two beautiful babies, I have a decent job that provided my family with the means to survive. All the things that were on my list as I grew up which I thought when I get these things I will be my happiest. But I wasn’t. I was still searching for something more but I couldn’t pinpoint what it was.

It didn’t take long after starting this journey to find what it was I was missing. It was ME. It was MY HAPPINESS. It was MY SELF LOVE. It was the BELIEF IN MYSELF.
I am learning to accept and love who I am. I am learning to be stronger. I am learning how important it is to focus on myself.

It is a forever ongoing learning process but the value that I am already receiving consists of a happier me, happier marriage, happier and stronger mommy, a body that I have NEVER seen before, and confidence that is going to continue to push me forward. So glad I took a leap of faith. A leap of faith into myself. You are worth it too and I KNOW you can find your true happiness.

We support secrets as long as ALL the boys are in on it (because Wells always spills the beans 😝). Nobody is excluded! This is a great way to get rid of sibling rivalry and create a strong bond between your children. #FamilyDay

Now that our Saturday mornings are freed up (opted out of summer dance & improv classes) we can go on more adventures in the city.. started our weekend with some treasure hunting at @babiestotsconsignment 🛍️ and we definitely found some goodies before we head over to besties birthday party 🎉🎈 Mommas have you been to this pop up or one like it? Prices drop at noon if you’re planning on going. I have yet to master the art of selling clothes but I have lots and lots and lots inventory.. 😬 #chicagomom #momlife #capellascruz #mirabellemars #girlsdayout #shoppingqueen #pageantmom

I let Munchie have the last page of my journal from @vagabroadjournals. I'm using it to bring things to life and hopefully teaching her that journaling is a great self-care exercise. She may be too young to understand now but she will see one day. #JournalSoulfullyLittleOne

Nothing like a sweaty Saturday morning with music from Ariana Grande and soon-to-be momma @becksb23 ... and @mikewohlner too 😉

This doesn’t feel like real life. I have been missing the college days- being in the gym working with teammates. Pushing each other, cheering each other on, and celebrating together. I’m crying- because I can’t believe I have it again. These girls are more than I could ever dream of. They don’t give up on me, and I couldn’t be more grateful. If you want this, we won’t give up on you either 💗 #Lifeiwant

We had a lovely dinner. Went to bed by 9:45pm. Slept through the night (I still popped awake at 4am and 6:30am but didn't have to actually sit up! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼). But my ladies were SCREAMING by 7am and thus I present you what happens the first time #newmom gets to sleep through the night. I pumped 15 oz. Rightie had 10oz on her own! •

We're enjoying coffee and muffins and then it's time to pick up my little chunker!


And I gotta say, I loved being able to eat a nice meal and enjoy Paul's company. I loved being able to leave the bedroom door open so the cats could come in and sleep on our bed. I loved getting a full night's sleep. And I loved getting to have a quiet morning. But...there is a Finlay-size hole in all of it. And I've realized that life is not the same as it was before -- even when we get a moment to relive it pre-baby style -- but I love it more now. And I miss my chunk! ❤️

Almost 65 lbs down... I would never want to do this alone. I’m not sure that I could. These girls encourage, validate, and push me. When I wanted to give up, they didn’t give up on me. Don’t you want this kind of #girlsquad ?!?!?! #Lifeiwant

I love seeing my mama friends enjoying having pretty nails again after having babies! It's one simple, easy thing that can make you feel human again... Not just a food source and "waste" remover💩😝 @__.victoria.elizabeth.__ thanks for sharing! Your little one is darling! And that head of hair is impressive❤️❤️❤️

I have to be honest, I haven’t been posting consistently because I’m in this awkward season. I’m wrestling with the joy of creating a new home and space for our community, while crying with a heavy heart feeling so unsure of what steps to take next for our daughter. I want to be able to sit in all the feelings, and maybe in this next season of healing God is trying to teach me how to do that well?!? -
All I know is that the encouraging dm’s and face to face comments of how much you look forward to my posts mean the world to me. They help me to refocus, to keep putting myself out there and not stop sharing! -
So I’m choosing to not listen to the voice that tells me I’m fake, a fraud, or that my motives are wrong, and instead I’m listening to the voice of truth that says my voice matters, that I’m filled with purpose and calling, and that I am His.
