Day 7 of #100daysofmom
▪️ Today continues with being active. It was just the boys and we took them to an indoor playground since it’s cold out. These places are great because they have so many activities and stations for the kids to explore. The one we go to here in Vegas is called kangamoo. They have surveillance cameras throughout the play place as well so in the parents lounge you can watch your kids playing if you have to step away. They also have a great variety of healthy snacks. There’s lots of kids around too for them to interact with. Letting your little ones run around and burn off all that energy again. And like I said yesterday, play dates are great, but it’s good to get out of the house sometimes too. Kids don’t like to be cooped up inside the house. Even if they go to the same place a couple times a week, it’s better than being home.
Are there any other places some of you take your kids to? Whether it be a park or another indoor playground or aquarium/zoo. It’s good to get some other suggestions so that we don’t go to the same place a lot lol

I hate packing! I get super anxious when I have to pack for a trip, and packing for a child makes it even worse! ⠀⠀
Realistically, I know I can stop and buy an essential if we forget something, but the anxiety monster says otherwise. So, I overpack. Just to be safe. 🙃 #sorrynotsorry
Do any of you get weird about packing? Do you have a method to madness? ⠀⠀
Alright... time to get back to business with some Stress Away in the diffuser, happy Friday my friends.
are a real thing ya’ll!!! I didn’t want to believe it and honestly thought it was a myth...🤪😂 I was in for a rude awakening!!!! 😬
Today’s doctors appointment was crazyyy. Olivia screamed and cried more than any other visit. 😱 😭
She wouldn’t even let the nurse check her temperature which resulted in us bumping heads...she got a nice bump on her eyebrow and I had a cut inside my mouth. 🤷♀️ Good news is she is growing well and very healthy otherwise.
P.S. any tips on dealing with those terrible twos are greatly appreciated!!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 #terribletwos #toddlerproblems #2yearsold #girlmama #activetoddler #mamaneedscoffee #mamaneedshelp #doctorsappointment
||would you trust this handyman???|| 😅 jk. doing the no pants dance because we are right on the verge of potty training 🚽💙 and by verge I mean stockpiling allllll the stickers and positive reinforcements 😁.
also we plan on going for the no-diapers/underwear/pants at all method, meaning we’ll be spending 90% of our time outside (because go big or go home right 👊🏼) any mamas have experience with this method? Did you love it or hate it? I actually heard fast and positive results from a friend 🤞🏼🙃
excited for this new transition in his life, but also dreading it a little because no more baby 😭😭😭
Any chance we get we’re outside ✨
It’s been raining a bunch and in the breaks of the rain we get outside for as long as possible! We’re no good at tennis 🎾 but we have a blast trying! I treasure these days spent running around and keeping up with this little jellybean! .
Also!! Today I was promoted in my coaching business to the rank of Emerald! I know most of you have no idea what I’m saying, but I leveled up and I am so proud and thankful for this opportunity! Izzy @the_fitness_rabbit
came into my life at the perfect time and I am so excited to see where it all goes from here. #theonlywayisup
Rain, rain go away, this mama has a little one who wants to play! ⠀⠀
Anyone else here in Southern California tired of the rain?🙋🏼♀️
I know, I know, we desperately need the water, but 4 days in a row in a LOT when you aren’t used it! ⠀⠀
The dogs are unhappy, the children are antsy, the highways are disastrous... for those of you where this weather is the norm, how to keep the kiddos active? Emma has been standing at our sliding doors begging to go outside! Help!
This morning we went to @xtremehoppjohnscreek
if you followed my personal page you know we go there about twice a month. They have the best #toddlertime
kids under 5 every Tuesday-Friday from 9:30-11am for just $6/kid and one adult is free per child (they don’t make you leave at 11 if you are brave enough to put off naptime 😂, they just let the older kids in). Then you can sit in their cafe and try to get your kids to drink one of their healthy fresh smoothies and hummus and veggies and then just cave and get them cheese pizza for the 3rd day in a row. 😫 .........
This morning we met an old friend, someone I have not seen since high school. It’s funny how a decade can go by and you can feel like it was just yesterday you saw them at volleyball practice. It’s crazy how we can go go go, and then you have kids and you can either continue to try to do it all and max yourself all the way out, or you change your lifestyle and take a break and find yourself reconnecting so many of the things and people you dismissed for so many years. I am new to this, take your time and smell the roses, call an old friend lifestyle, but already I am realizing how for so many years I ignored being a human. Always thinking about how to reach the next goal, or make the next check. Thankful for the many lessons being a mommy has taught me already, and this is just the beginning.

Trust me this duo is not as harmonious as it looks like in this photo 🧨💣 My baby and my baby sister who doesn’t feel like a day older than Iris to me 💕 @parimalezai
Two days in a row Quinn has woken up at 6am instead of her usual 7am.
It’s like toddlers just know you’re trying to be productive and have an hour of alone time and they’re like “oh hell nah girl this.ain’t.happenin.” This mornings workout was not as much of a shit show as yesterday tho- the snacks and bribery items worked better and she mostly stayed on the couch except for the first few minutes 😂
It may not have been perfect but nothing is more satisfying then getting that over with first thing in the morning 👌🏼
Who needs this shirt?!? 🤰🏾🤱🏼🙋🏻♀️🤷🏽♀️
Tired as a mother (adj): pure exhaustion due to having a child or children with invisible battery packs that’s cannot be removed
(FYI prayers and pliers are useless but parks have shown positive results in reducing a child’s energy.)
Once reaching this level of exhaustion you are still required to continue watching, feeding, changing, and let’s not forget - cleaning - up after your child(ren).
This term is ONLY to be used when you’ve reached the brink of collapse and all you want is to sit down.
and just close your eyes.......💆🏽♀️
without fear that your child(ren) will cause bodily harm or create a mess that defies logic - ie rubbing sunscreen all over their clothes and adjoining surfaces.
Finally if you see a well rested, full made up, fresh from the gym woman who hasn’t even had a cup of coffee WEARING THIS SHIRT - feel free to hand her your child(ren) and your shirt. She can have her shirt back when she is “tired as mother”.

Iceberg Jumping ❄️
The Winter weather 🥶 has been keeping us in the house these days, which any #toddlermom
will tell you, is a real joy! 🙄
Yesterday we started reading and talking about polar bears! We discussed how polar bears live where it’s very cold. They enjoy walking along the ice, swimming and cuddling their cubs! 😍
Today, we pretended to be polar bears as we jumped from iceberg to iceberg! This was great gross motor practice and tired him out before nap! 🙌🏼 .::SWIPE::. To see how little man took it one step further and tried balancing on the ice! 🤗
How do you keep your littles moving when the weather isn’t ideal? ❄️
if you completely skip your terrible 2WO’s are you destined to be an angel forever or is 3HREE going to be a new kind of crazy? 😅 we’re 5 months into our two’s with this little (big) guy and I’m constantly amazed by his patience, intelligence, and continued sweetness ❤️
