Pretty overly thankful for that cute smile that greets me throughout the day! And his willingness to take pictures for and with us!! Did you know that Tim is behind the camera on a lot of pics? So gracious. Also, he was pretty stoked at his gift of a personalized wallet from @everlygrayce_ ! He loves anything leather so I was stoked to find this knowing he needed a new one! . . #Momcommunity #motherhoodrising #momentsinmotherhood #lifeasmama #igmotherhood #motherhoodinspired #storytellingmama #mumswhostyle #ohmamamoment #ohheymama #mommystatus #momdotme #mommylifestyle #instamamagang #joyfulmamas #motherlove #clickinmoms #acupofmotherhood #momlife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #uniteinmotherhood #honestmotherhood #honestlymothering #myhonestmotherhood #momhub #socialmediamom #momsofig ย #morethanmama

Well 2 out of 3 looking isnโ€™t bad ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ This spot in our living room is one of my favorite places in our house. Itโ€™s right in front of our set of sliding glass doors, you can see our pool, the palms and the little canal we live on. Itโ€™s pretty, but this is also where we do most of our playing... itโ€™s the way the light floods in and makes their eyes sparkle that gets me. It honestly takes my breath away daily. Iโ€™ve read a lot on gratitude, and one of the most important takeaways from most anything you will read is the importance of drawing attention to those little things that โ€œget youโ€. Light reflecting in my childrenโ€™s eyes, will forever be ingrained on my heart and one of the things I am most grateful for. Motherhood provides endless opportunities for gratitude, so Iโ€™d love to hear some of those little things that โ€œget youโ€! #uniteinmotherhood #momentsinmotherhood #itsthelittlethings
Heading into our second round of teething, and I want to share whatโ€™s working for Landon. ๐ŸŒฟ . First up - clove essential oil. This powerful essential oil has a numbing effect, making it an excellent option for reducing pain. This is a very hot oil, and needs to be used cautiously. Add 1-2 drops to 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Test in your own mouth first. Add more coconut oil if you feel itโ€™s too hot. Likewise, if you find itโ€™s not effective, add 1 drop at a time, and test again. I use a small jelly jar for easy storage and usage. I dip my finger and then rub the diluted clove EO into Landonโ€™s gums. Itโ€™s instant relief for him. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป ๐ŸŒฑ . The other magic oil I use is Copaiba! This oil has a chemical profile that is amazing for soothing occasional pain and for helping reduce inflammation. I keep a 10mL roller made up with 5 drops of Copaiba, topped off with fractionated coconut oil. Roll it along the jawline, around the ears for referred pain, and massage it in. ๐ŸŒฟ . If you need to get these all natural mommy tools in your home, comment below and send me a DM! I have been blessed by having these natural tools and I love to help other mommas get them in their homes too! ๐Ÿ’œ

So after starting Warrior Brain, I realized that there are two different types of worries and anxieties ๐Ÿค” โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข There are children ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ with worries and fears, and there are parents ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ with worries and fears too. Sometimes your life is a mix of both, and sometimes only one. What is your biggest struggle? #qotd #questionoftheday #parenting #parenthood #mumslife #motherhoodunplugged #littleandbrave #honestlymothering

Growing so much. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Nobody could have ever prepared me for how much I would love my kids. โ€ข How much your heart would ache as a mother when you think of the days that your child grows up and moves out. โ€ข Or that there would be days that I would get so frustrated that I would want to throw in the towel but then feel so guilty and horrible because deep down I love them so much. โ€ข This stuff? They donโ€™t tell you this stuff in the baby book. โ€ข They donโ€™t talk about how you will blink your eyes and all of a sudden your baby is a preschooler and all those moments when you were so sleep deprived and anxious you will want them all back again because you feel like you missed out. โ€ข These moments? Are now. Breathe them in mama. We are all trying our best to freeze these moments. xo
This week we made summer bucket lists as part of our summer solstice ritual. Things on our list: go to beach yoga 10 times (me), get really good at swimming (@mr5thround ), go to the park (June), family trip to Florida, see fireworks, go hiking, movies at the beach, live music, lots of play dates, bi-weekly date nights, and tons of family beach days like the one pictured. Stay tuned to watch us check things off our list! What's on your summer bucket list?! โœŒโค๐ŸŒž

Saturday ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’
I came to the realization today that all four of my babies have been introduced on my Instagram account. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿถ My three mini me's and my dog are my insta inspiration and my whole world ๐ŸŒŽ so it's usually all about them, but I thought it would be great to introduce myself to all of the other mamas out there and to further the connections being made with all of you! ๐Ÿ‘ญ I'm a 24 year old mom of three, my two boys and my girlie and a dog mama to one sweet golden pup. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿถ In September I start the journey towards my Bachelor of Social Work. ๐Ÿ“š I am insanely passionate about social work and working with children and youth. I am super excited to return to school and start this journey ahead of me. #studentmom . I'm a huge animal lover. ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ Green food is my favourite food. ๐ŸŒฟ#plantbasedliving . Nature is where I feel calm in the chaos of life. ๐Ÿƒ I'm a big beach bum. ๐ŸŒŠ Pink is my favourite colour. ๐ŸŒธ I enjoy personal development books, iced coffee and herbal teas, warm baths, yoga, meditation, listening to podcasts, shopping and connecting and bonding with other mamas. #momsunited . My family is my everything, motherhood has shown me the true meaning of life and the true beauty of living. Although it's s tough gig, it's also the best job imaginable. #momlifeisthebestlife . I used to be embarrassed to talk about it and I tried to hide it for a very long time, but recently I have found the strength to be open about my anxiety, panic and obsessive compulsive disorders. I've struggled since I was a small child. I used to be afraid and ashamed of the fact that I take medication, but I have realized over time that I am not less of a person or less of a mother because of this. I have found that with my medication, healthy eating, physical activity, rest, reflection and self care, that I am able to cope with my disorders in a way that works for me. #anxietywarrior Tell me more about you! Did you discover anything you might have in common with me? I'd love to hear from you! โค๏ธ

Donโ€™t you just love it when one million people rally together for a common cause to change the lives of others and build each other up along the way? ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Thursday I saw people, young and old, whether they use our skincare or not, rally together to change the lives of young people they will never meet. To help fund educational and leadership programs for youth around the world. ๐Ÿ’œ Not only did the #RFGoNaked campaign raise a ton of money for the Prescription for Change Foundation, but I also loved seeing all the compliments on people's "naked" selfie posts. ๐Ÿ˜˜ There was so much encouragement and kindness. So many compliments like "There's my gorgeous friend." Or "Beautiful inside and out." And "You are flawless". That made my heart so very happy! We are better together and rise up by lifting others. ๐Ÿ˜ THANK YOU to all who participated and thank you to Rodan + Fields for the opportunity to give back in such an amazing way!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Constant beach days since we came to Winnipeg and we are loving it!! Exploring and playing in the sand โ™ฅ๏ธ I also got a major sunburn today so that was cool.
Truly enjoying my time away and soaking it ALL in! ๐Ÿค— . While I completely, absolutely LOVE my kids and love being with them, I'm a work-at-home mama so it's crucial for my mental well-being to take a break from parenting every once in a while. . I also know that they need time away from me to explore the world, build relationships with other adults, and develop respect for people outside of our home. Plus, they have Dad and super awesome grandparents with them! . Not everyone has this luxury, and I am SO grateful for my fantastic family support system to be able to get away like this! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #ig_motherhood #girlsnight #momlife #coachlife #motherhoodunplugged #honestmotherhood #documentyourdays #motherhoodcorner #motherhoodismagic #mightymama #dailyparenting #stopdropandmom #motherhoodthroughinstagram #bestofmom #parenthood_unveiled #holdyourmoments #momcommunity #dailymoms #inspiremothers #momsofinstagram #girlgang #thehappynow
This side pocket on my @fawndesign bag is the perfect ice cream cone holder ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿฆ But real talk, this was taken seconds before one of Lucasโ€™ most epic melt downs (too much fun ๐Ÿ™„). My strategy was to literally leave everything (purse, wallet, keys, phone, cone) and drag him outside to take a breather. Pretty horrifying. But when I went back in, one of the girls working at @icecreamtacoma had scooped our abandoned cone off the napkin I had tossed it on and placed it in a take away cup (thank you sweet angel). How do other moms handle public tantrums?

Body stigma is everywhere, and nowhere are the damages more consequential than in the lives of women who are growing and birthing new life into our world. Countless of women in larger bodies face weight discrimination in multiple ways, and this directly impacts the health and wellness of mothers during pregnancy and postpartum. . Birth is not a one-body-size-fits-all approach, and women should be empowered in knowing that their body is capable of growing and birthing a baby into the world, regardless of their body size, shape or weight.๐ŸŒป . All mothers deserve access to safe, non discriminatory health care to ensure that they are getting the care and attention they need without fear or shame about their body size. When mothers are cared for, families flourish. Check out more about this on the blog, โ€œWhy Body Diversity in Pregnancy and Postpartum Matters to Moms Everywhereโ€ {Link in Bio}๐ŸŒฟ
Just a girl + her dog ๐ŸŒผ. . . I love everything about vacation. The spontaneity. The open road. No plans. It feels free.
