More love, less judgement, more forgiveness.💗 Thank you @th3littlestavenger for sharing. "Ew put that away 🤮".⁣⁣
"When I get pregnant I'll make sure I don't get stretchmarks".⁣⁣
"Mom's will do anything for attention these days".⁣⁣
⁣⁣I'm not trying to make excuses for internet trolls or any of the truly hateful people in this world.⁣⁣
I'm not saying that it's OKAY for them to say these things.⁣⁣
I'm just saying that there's power in forgiveness. ⁣⁣
That there's always hope for reformation. For new "aha" moments. For changed perspectives.⁣⁣
And when you find yourself in MY shoes, I'll be here for you. #behealthiher #mom

I love these guys soooo much. 💓 Oh and I realized these pants were a bad idea the moment I put them on but I was honestly too lazy to change. 😂

There's nothing quite like a nice, slow morning and some freshly mopped floors.🌿

Jackson is dealing with his first stomach bug today😢
Aside from the vomiting episodes you can hardly tell he’s feeling unwell except for some extra snuggles. This is why I love being a Pediatric Nurse. Kids are so resilient!
So now not only am I sad that my little man is sick, I’m also sad because I’m reminded how much I love working peds and that returning to peds isn’t an option here 😭.

We all run a story, the question is not if you are, but WHAT IS IT? Bridget's is ‘I can’t work more and be the mum I want to be’, Julie's is ‘toddlers are hard, I don’t have time for anything else…including what I really want to be doing’….but when we choose to believe our ‘reality’ is as we see it, there leaves no room for any other possibility, or opportunity for change and we can find ourselves feeling heavy, stuck, should-ing, not enough-ing, I can’t-ing and general overwhelm prevails. So where to from here?….This is what we explore on the podcast this week... Subscribe search ‘NOURISHING THE MOTHER’ on your podcast app 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧

Leadership is a choice.
Leadership is a practice.
Leadership is so individual.

To me, leadership means showing up. Leadership is daring to put yourself out there so that others have the opportunity to grow into their own dreams.
Leadership isn’t showing people what to want, it’s hearing what they want and helping them figure out how to get there.

I’m reading #daretolead for the second time right now because I have this AMAZING leader and coach hosting a book club for our team’s rising leaders!
The concepts are tough. It’s eye opening. It’s challenging. As it should be 🙌🏻 Grateful today for incredible leader in @melaniemitro who is helping me learn how to be a better leader FOR YOU!

Whether you’ve joined a wellness group, a coach mentorship program with me, or are simply following along for tips and tricks to help you be your best.... I want to be the best leader that I can be, FOR YOU and WITH YOU.
This life is about community, and surrounding ourselves with people who encourage us to dream, reach, and always keep moving forward!

Do your people do that for you?! I hope so!
If you’re wanting MORE from a community, DM me for more info about the next opportunities to join us!

Guess who got his hair cut today and hated every second? 😂 oh bless him. He wasn't happy at all, but he's full of cold and his fringe was irritating his eyes all week (as well as them already being sore) so I felt bad and finally went. He looks so handsome and also looks about 6 month older 😭 he's the bloody double of his brother now!

Our new @beddysbeds set is a game changer in the morning routine. I have to make the bed. It’s just messy to me, a room with an unmade bed. But sometimes if I don’t make it up before baby’s wake-up time it can be such a scramble to make the bed and get myself ready. Enter @beddysbeds ! The entire bedding fits like a fitted sheet and you simply zip the comforter right around the bed. So handy, even a toddler can do it! .

Enjoying a late lunch... We got a little carried away with an impromtu snowball fight in the playroom after school (shout out to last years fake snowballs from the dollar spot at @target)! Anyways... I love listening to the conversations that these two have. They seriously never run out of stories to tell each other!
.
.
I wanted to brag on a couple of our most used/favorite products in our house... First being the kids @hydroflask! These things are so durable yall... We got them at the beginning of last year and they still look just as good as they did the day they arrived which is saying a lot because these things are used and abused 24/7! They are also SUPER easy to keep clean unlike so many of the other cups that we have tried over the years.
.
.
Second would definitely be all of our plates, bowls, utinsels etc by @replayrecycled... The company is family owned and operated right here in the US and all of their products are made out of recycled food safe plastic! Living a non toxic lifestyle is something we are very passionate about so when I saw that all of their products are free from BPA, BPS, PVC, Lead, Pthalates and surface coatings it was a no brainer and we ordered them right away! Ours have been going strong for over two years now so the quality and durability is there!! .
.
I will link both of them in my bio so yall can check them out!!

SO YOU’RE FALLING DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE 💥3 books that changed my life: Taking Charge of Your Fertility (for understanding your cycle, your body, and your innate wisdom about the two without filling your body with synthetic hormones and chemicals), Spiritual Midwifery (for midwife-attended birth stories), and The Fourth Trimester (for planning for your postpartum experience and how to heal physically and emotionally after birth). 💥 TCOYF taught me that you don’t actually get a period on the pill and if you pay close enough attention to your body you can see which days you’re most fertile because *HINT* you’re only fertile a few days a month. The human body is marvelous. We don’t give it nearly enough credit.💥 Spiritual Midwifery led me down the birthy rabbit hole by normalizing natural birth. The more stories I read about births, the more prepared and confident I felt going into it at home. I paired this book with hours upon hours of authentic birth videos on Facebook groups, YouTube, and in documentaries. 💥 The Fourth Trimester. What do you think of when you read the word “postpartum”? It doesn’t mean depression. Postpartum literally means “following childbirth” but if you Google the word “postpartum” the first links that pop up are for PPD. Nobody ever explained how precious this time is before I had my first and it wasn’t until after I had my second that I realized a lot of my difficulties after having my baby could’ve been prevented had I simply planned better. Birth can be beautiful and empowering but it can also be very traumatic and scarring. How a woman’s treated after she has her baby will change the way she parents, the way she views herself, and the way she views her baby, regardless of how good or bad her birth was. It can also affect her marriage if her partner doesn’t know how to support her. It’s NOT something to be taken lightly. This book is necessary for all pregnant women AND the people who expect to be around her after she has her baby. And the people who expect to hold the baby 😉💥 Childbearing years, birth, and postpartum aren’t just things women should endure and survive. They deserve to flourish. Don’t they?

When I became a mom for the first time, I remember all those people who told me to cherish every moment. My reaction? I wanted to punch them in the face.

I mean, what’s to enjoy? The sleepless nights? The constant crying because Kyle had colic? My crazy hormones? The isolation? The constant worrying? The not knowing what the f$:k I’m doing?

The truth is, I probably didn’t enjoy most of Kyle’s first year. My life got twisted upside down (thanks for the line Fresh Prince), and I was kind of lost. To say it was the biggest change in my life would be an understatement. It was the most GIGANTIC change in my life!

Fast forward 8 years, and as I sit here with Nathan, my ‘baby’, who is 4 years old, I can’t help but think to myself ‘cherish every moment!’ And I do! I really, really, really cherish every moment. In fact, we all call him ‘baby’ at home and we treat him like a baby too. I don’t think he minds.

The truth is, he’ll always be a baby to me. Can anyone relate?? PS. That’s my dad in the background. I love this 3-generations photo! .

I’ll be honest, there are times when I miss the days without kids when it was just me and Kelly. But then we have moments like this and I’m reminded how great this life is. ⁣

We’re so blessed to have these boys regardless of the lack of sleep, tantrums, and everything else.

Our glorious/crazy clothing sale is still on! We have a big new brand we need to make some space for, so snap up these insane prices before they are gone for good!

It was over before it even really got started but for a few moments this evening just before it was his bedtime Arch and his dad watched the snow! Both of them seemed pretty excited about it to be honest! Here’s hoping it decides to come back in time for the weekend! #diditjustsnow #londonrooftops #snow #fatherandson

"In my 24 laboring hours my mind body and soul were overtaken by something so powerful. I’ve never experienced something more raw, painful, emotional or exhausting, however I found something inside of me that was primal and full of strength; a strength I didn’t know I had while I birthed naturally and caught my baby boy upon delivery in the water. Charlene, my doula was by my side during an 8 hour active labor and my husband and I are so grateful as I remember the moments bellowing, screaming and crying so hard that the tears ran dry... With both back and front labour contractions I was falling asleep from exhaustion between each surge. She stayed by my side through every single moment. I found the power within myself to birth our beautiful baby boy and we are eternally grateful."

how we feel about daddy going back to work today after the best weekend ever 😭 ... can we just rewind to Friday and do it allllll over again?

Getting back to it is HARD .
.
How many times have you fallen out of a healthy routine and struggled to jump back in? Have you gone on vacation, fallen ill, or just got carried away on a junk food train and can’t jump back on? ?
.
There’s no other way then to wake up and do it. Wake up and forget your fall backs. You can’t change them and regretting them will only push you farther away from your goals !
.
Like everything, consistency is KEY. I couldn’t wait to get back to my routine, my home cooked food, and my workout! Being out of routine makes me groggy, irritated, and completely messes up my stomach. But it wasn’t always this way. So many times I’ve fallen off and then weeks turned to months and before you know it you’re back to the start .
.
Instead of dreading a healthy routine make it a way of life. Allow those yummy meals out and take that weeks vacation without worrying about working out but take it for what it is, a treat! Instead of thinking of it like a failure, like you’ve fallen off, think of it like you earned it and your whole mindset will change .
.
Your excuses will be your worst enemy. There’s nothing to it, except you need to just wake up and do it ☀️
