I love my sons. They spent the weekend cooking, cleaning & doing chores for me. And forcing me to eat this horrible dessert from Marble Slab. Hated it.😉💞

The biggest impact this weekend has had on me is truly realizing that my family is everything. I want to bring health & wellness to everyone, starting with my home. I want to teach my children healthy principals, learning how to make the best choices, and learning to love ourselves even when we make the wrong ones. I want my kids to be inspired when they see me, mom, stepping out in faith, changing people’s lives with Jesus & a vehicle to help people both physically and emotionally. This health coaching gig isn’t just about losing weight, it’s about helping people be the BEST version of themselves for the rest of their life.

‘Your firsts will all be lasts for me, last crawl and last to ride my knee. Last nappy, breastfeed, spoon of mush, last rock to sleep, last cry to hush. You’re not my firstborn this is true, but the last baby I will have is you. You’re the last lullaby I’ll ever sing, and lasts are a special kind of thing’ I’m not sure she was ever really a baby. But tonight I hovered over her cot for a few moments longer, watching her do that bottle of milky eye roll thing, the way they do when they’re really enjoying their milk. And I wondered how many more bedtime bottles I’d see before, without me even noticing, she decides she doesn’t need them anymore. I don’t cherish every moment, and I’d be a liar to say I did. Raising kids is bloody hard relentless work. But it’s littered with moments, often the quiet insignificant ones, the mundane bedtime bottle, the wiping of a face, the millionth round of row row row your boat, that are so life affirming. They remind me that, whilst looking over the cot or pacing the floors with a fractious newborn feels like it might last forever, these things just don’t. One day they sleep through, one day they can feed themselves, one day they take those tentative first steps and you hold your breath watching from the other side of the room, and then just like that, they’re gone. And you’re still holding your breath as they step out into the world as adults. And 18 years have gone in a blink of an eye. Have that extra moment at the cot, you’ve got time. 👶🏻 #raisingkids #raisinggirls #raisingboys #parentingishard #parentingtheshitoutoflife #letkidsbekids #enjoylife #smallthings #itsthelittlethings #babyivy #babygirl #babysofinstagram #bedtime #bottlefeeding #growuptoofast #toddlerlife #toddlerhood #18monthsold #mybaby #mumlife #mummydiaries #mum #parenthood #parenthood_moments #mumblogger #mylife

When your 11 year old asks to take you on a “Sunday day-date” and offers to buy, you secretly do a happy dance and accept of course! 😍❤️ One on one time is rare and precious and Jud and I are working on making it a priority.

We finished our lunch with shared ice cream, a round of heads up and good conversation about the upcoming school year! It was pretty perfect.

Some days you just want to remember, bottle up, save for later. They're not common so they refuse to leave your mind. This was one of those days, not today, not yesterday, but two days ago. It was warm, we had gone for a late night dip in the sea to cool down. When this photo was taken the kids had fallen asleep and my hair was still wet from the salty water. It was silent and I could hear small waves from the beach below us and the sunset left the sky in a light pink haze. And for the first time in very long I felt alive.

Let them climb trees. Let them get muddy. Let them pause to see the snail on the ground. Let them ask you why. Let them wear that not so great outfit they picked themselves. Let them go barefeet. Let them graze their knees. Let them eat that spaghetti with their hands. Let them climb trees. 🌳 #letthembelittle

I couldn’t have ever dreamt of your beauty. Yet God made you perfect. My sweet little Constantine, I’m so in love with you. My 6 percentile baby 👶🏻😅💙 those are just numbers anyway, right?! .

Keen to help mummy - so I let him loose with the hoover.
.
It’s been a day of odd jobs in the house (well hubby has been doing odd jobs, I’ve had a chilled morning) followed by a trip to the swimming pool this afternoon.
.
Boys are booked in for a Pool Test tomorrow afternoon so they can start having swimming lessons, so we took them to the pool they will be going to so they could see what it looked like.
.
Mr C and Mr R were nervous to start with, but soon got going with their floats chasing after the balls in the pool 🏊‍♀️ .

Sunday, oh how I’m glad the day has finished! These two at the moment seem to be going through a love/hate relationship and if it’s not these two going mad at each other it’s one of the others.
I just keep on trying to tell myself tomorrow’s another day

I’ve always said how Jesse has given me an easy ride, so relaxed and easy going. He’s definitely an old soul! Anyway he’s entered leap 9 (deep joy) and has turned into a little A-hole this weekend!, he’s breaking my balls that’s for sure. In other news apart from the occasional sass Roo has been a little dreamboat...

😢 From First To Last 😁
This is my brave boy B.
He went from frightened & nervous to cheeky & excited by nursery.
B's nursery were beyond amazing with him & cannot thank them enough, me & B treated them to a pizza takeaway lunch as a present & I heard it went down a storm.
They not only have B support but they also got me help with some of the things I've been put through and that was fantastic. Safety was paramount with them hence why there are no images of B actually in nursery on any of my social media.
I will miss his teacher especially but I will miss that small environment for him. I always felt he was safe and well loved there.
I do hope the children that join in September love it as much as we did. I will continue to help the nursery organise their events and raise as much money as possible to keep them going happily.

What an awesome Saturday night with our friends Allen and Sonja at Wind and Water! .
We had a great time with Sonja learning about Scuba at the shop this week then followed it up with our water portion. .
Allen was incredible with teaching us our first class in Scuba. Boden took to it like a fish!🐠 We are hooked! What an awesome and amazing experience! Can't wait to go again!

The other day, after always emphatically declining offers to spike up his hair, he said he wanted some goop to make it spikey. I told him I'd have to trim it a little to do that, and he agreed. The next afternoon, I got out my scissors before he went in the pool, and yesterday, he rocked the faux-hawk. And then we painted his nails. 💖 #raisingboys #feministkids #letthembelittle

How are you five already and starting school in just a few short weeks?? Before you came along I could never imagine myself with a little boy,but I'm so thankful God decided to bless us with you! You’re the sweetest,loving,most tender hearted little boy and when you look at me with your big blue eyes and give me a hug my heart melts. I love you my Chancers and hope your birthday is as wonderful as you are. #wordsforchance #birthdayboy #thisisfive #momoffive #raisingboys #momlifeisthebestlife #sundayswithstacie

That time we went to the car boot sale, I was so delirious we sold our shit for £150 I let the kids buy slime for 30p off the bloke who clearly didn’t know how to make slime! A ruined tee shirt, a child rendered useless due to slime covered hands in a field without hand washing facilities and a pissed off Mum (me!) later... I was far from delirious. Slimey Shouty Mummy is like the parental bog-monster of children’s nightmares! We’d managed to avoid the slime craze thus far, but the 150 spondoolies and an empty car clearly went to my head! #whenmumsmakeshitchoices #dontletthemoneygotoyourhead #thatmomentyouloveyourkidsabitless #bewaretheslimeyshoutymummy #mumofratbags #carbootsalemadness #mumofboys #slimers #notparentingtheshitoutoflife #whatwasithinking #raisingboys #wildandfree #raisingthoserascals #summerholidayfun #brothers #doubletrouble #tweedledeeandtweedledum

So proud of my boy! ☺️ He learnt this in just 10mins after watching a video here on Instagram. Said “Mum let me show you how to do it!” First attempted live on #facebook and I think he nailed it. 😉

Last day in these lawn chairs for the season. We always look forward to baseball season, but this year I'm especially excited to start renovating the home we bought just before the season started. ✔️ Remove avocado-colored appliances.
✔️ Install med kitchen appliances.
Now for painting, new flooring, finishing the basement, putting on an addition, and whatever else my inner Joanna Gaines feels like doing!

Happy Sunday!!
.
Just now having my first cup of coffee at 11am, but it’s been a productive morning!
.
Grocery shopping is done, we tried a new church, and now back home to #mealprep and RELAX.
.
It’s been such a great weekend and I’m just so thankful for this new life we’re building in Arizona.
.
Hard to believe it’s been less than 3 weeks since we moved here, feels like it’s been so much longer.
.
Just so thankful, God is so good!! 💗

Breakfast at the teepees, yes please! Our highlight reels make it look like we are having a flawless summer, but behind the screen there are moms and dads running on empty.

A bunch of parents waking up numerous times at night with their littles 🙋🏽‍♀️, running on coffee in order to corral overtired children who go from giggles of joy to tears of exhaustion.

Parents everywhere wonder if they are the only ones struggling with day-to-day life and crazy kiddos who have meltdowns, as parenting according to Instagram is easy and our children are always well behaved😉🤣 But I see you and all the tears and exhaustion behind your perfect photos. I see you struggling. But know this - you are not alone. You are doing great. You matter. You are loved. You got this. 💪🏻

As an entrepreneur, it's in my DNA to dream big. Among those dreams, is a house or cottage on a lake 'up north' in Michigan. It's so real to me, I can see it and feel what it will be like when (not if) it happens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It will be a place to make memories with our kids - and someday their kids.
A place to relax and disconnect.
A place to read good books.
A place to play in the sun and in the water during the summer, and cozy up next to a warm fire place with a cup of coffee in the winter.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It won't need to be fancy. And when it's time, I'll know it when I see it because it already exists in my thoughts and dreams. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you dreaming of?

Somehow toddlerhood came around and my kids were those kids that refused to eat vegetables. Not sure how that happened. 🤔 Thankful they’ve developed an early taste for fresh pressed juices—at least I’ve found one way to get vegetables into their bodies. 🍏🥕🥒🍋

Those wee toes 🍄
.
It's just me and this one tonight, Abel is off for a sleepover with his Gran & Papa to give me a chance to tidy and sort the place a bit before William gets home 😅 he is getting home a day later than expected, pretty standard. Until he actually messages or phones me to say he is off the boat I don't get my hopes up 😂 can't wait to see the kid's faces when they see him again 💔

Alli is back home, Camden wants nothing to do with pictures and church was on point this morning! #AllIsRightWithTheWorld

This is just another reminder that no one is perfect. We all make mistakes.
.
But ultimately, it is not our job to judge! God is the only one who will judge in the end.
.
Our job is to love others, forgive them and be a light to all we meet! 💜

“I am proud of many things in life, but nothing beats being a mother”.
💙
These two amazing human beings make life so joyful, exhausting & adventurous. It’s a blessing to watch these two tiny kiddos grow each day into grown persons..and it’s crazy to know that we all started the same way! Life is just awesome & these two kiddos add to it!

Our lounge is a mess... full of toys... Trent: Mom tell me what the plan is with my toys
Me: 🤨 um... you need to clean up otherwise whatever is left when you go to sleep is going in the bin
Trent: Mom I'm going to leave dad here all night then you must throw him in the bin *laughs hysterically*

Loved taking the twins on their first fruit picking trip today, all the boys had loads of fun. Unfortunately there weren’t many strawberries left but we got loads of raspberries and blackberries. The big boys enjoyed seeing who could pick the most, Hector probably ate everything he picked and Saul just seemed to paint himself with fruit.

*Warning spoilers ahead*
We mailed out a BUNCH of samples last night to non-YL members + I included a samples of the charcoal bar soap for everyone (sorry to ruin the surprise!)
This stuff smells so freaking good + the price is even better. I definitely suggest everyone add this to their orders when they enroll with me - it’s a must have.
I use this on my face + my body to pull out all the dirt from my pores - feels so good!
If you haven’t heard about charcoal soap you’ve been living under a rock + you need to google the benefits.
I’m also stocking up for Cameron because he’s in those pre-teen years.
The whole orange blossom line if formulated for normal - oily skin. Plus we have a killer new acne spot treatment!
No nasty teenage breakouts will be happening our house! 🌿🤘🏼🍊
.
.
P.s. if you aren’t a Young Living member + you’re curious about oils + this lifestyle, shoot me a message so I can hook you up with some samples + our community!
