Sam is excited about healthy food, y'all! Just kidding, I told him I was going to eat his face.

(#ad)But I do think magnesium is an underrated supplement, you guys. I try to eat foods that contain naturally high levels of it, but honestly, I feel much better when I supplement it. Did you know every cell in your body needs magnesium to function? It helps convert food into energy, create and repair DNA and RNA, is part of the contraction and relaxation of muscles, and helps regulate your neurotransmitters. Personally, I find that it helps minimize my migraines and anxiety, and helps me sleep better. I've been supplementing with @florahealthy liquid magnesium for the past couple of weeks, and it's been so easy to add to my daily green smoothies. It contains 250 mg of easily absorbable magnesium per daily dose to help in the development and maintenance of bones, teeth, and proper muscle function. Use MAGNESIUM15 to get 15% off any size bottle of Magnesium on florahealth.com and let me know what you think! #BeFloraHealthy

We were supposed to be taking photos of all the grandkids. You can see it went very well. At least there was a beautiful partial moon. 🤣 #wildernesskids #master_shots #candidchildhood #cameramama #ig_masterpiece #ig_photooftheday #my_magical_moments #magic_marvels #the_sugar_jar #theweekoninstagram

Calling all wild and barefoot kids! We are thrilled to team up with the makers of the most awesome kid’s barefoot shoes @Vivobarefoot.Kids, @runwild.mychild and a handful of outdoor adventure mamas for a great giveaway!

Vivobarefoot is all about encouraging kids to grow through outdoor play and explore the world with a wild spirit of adventure. Vivobarefoot shoes have ultra-thin, puncture resistant soles to protect feet only from climate and terrain while making sure feet can feel.

2. Follow me and @vivobarefoot.kids
3. For an additional entry, tag a friend in the comments

It's that easy! Giveaway ends on the 16th August and winner will be announced on the 17th August. This giveaway is not sponsored by or endorsed by Instagram. Must be 18 years or older to enter. Open to entrants worldwide. Good luck & run wild and barefoot!

As I look through my beach photos, I’m realizing that about 90% of them are of the backs of their heads. 🤣 busy kids are happy kids! I loved watching them have so much fun. ❤️ #wildernesskids #lookslikefilm #lookslikefilmkids #thesincerestoryteller #candidchildhood #sigma20mmart #cameramama #my_magical_moments #nothingisordinary #ig_masterpiece #ig_photooftheday #theweekoninstagram #master_shots #magic_marvels

We’re back from our beach vacation to Gulf Shores, and we are all tired, a little bit tanner, and ready for a bit more of a schedule to our day. I have a ton of emails to catch up on, a ton of sandy laundry, but for now I’m just gonna let my heart be full of these sweet summer memories. ☀️ #cameramama #ig_photooftheday #master_shots #bnwmood #bnw_of_our_world #themonochromaticlens #thesincerestoryteller #theweekoninstagram #sigma20mmart #our_everyday_moments #momtog #the_sugar_jar #magic_marvels #candidchildhood #jj_its_kids #agameoftones

Just relaxing in his new bed with his new favorite pillow. <3 #squishmallowsquad
(#sponsored) Sam is absolutely in love with his new @squishmallow, which is aptly also named Sam. It's ridiculously soft. Xander keeps trying to steal it, and I definitely see why. Even better, they're available at Amazon, Walgreens, Costco, etc. So you can easily go bring one home and see how SOFT they are! Check out the current birthday sale going on now at squishmallows.com!#squishmallows #homedecor #ministylekids #kidstuff #my_magical_moments #infinity_children #ig_photooftheday #jj_its_kids #thatsdarling #momsofboys #momtog #mom_hub

This is approximately how it feels around my house lately. I eat while standing, getting things for my kids, or while locked in my bedroom 🤣 Summer is kicking my butt and I barely have time to breathe. (#gifted) So I totally jumped on the chance to try #soli - they have an amazing website where you can sort your meal choices by gluten-free, paleo, vegan, whole30, etc. They’re delicious, balanced, and fresh meals and snacks mailed right to your door. 🙌 And it makes eating healthy super easy to do, despite Sam’s best attempts. I really loved the baked ziti and the almond butter cup 😍 Use code “liveyourbest” for 1/2 off your first online order! 💃#liveyourbest #lyb #healthyeating #whole30 #vegan #cameramama #chicagomom #midwestisbest #midwestmoment #momsofboys #momtog #mom_hub #our_everyday_moments

It’s rainy and yuck here today. So that calls for a throwback to a gorgeous field of sunflowers with nothing but ☀️ Happy Friday, beautiful friends. .

Just over here making my kids dreams come true with a cake fight. 💁‍♀️ But they were more interested in eating than throwing. 🧐

Pro tip: keep cake moist by eating it all in one sitting. 🍰

Instagram is an amazing place for discovering art and inspiration. We have teamed up with some wonderful photographers to do just that in our #letthemthrowcake_loop. Follow the loop around to see all the amazing images in this fun photography theme: Let Them Throw Cake
