If you checked out my IG stories earlier you saw that I had 2 photos I was deciding on for today’s post. You guys rocked the vote and picked this beautiful family and their sweet snuggles ❤️❤️
Gimme ALL the filters,.... especially after the week I’ve had!! If you need me this is where I’ll be! At least for the next 5-10 minutes till my kids start screaming for me! 🤷🏽♀️ #imhiding
Support the bump! Who do you know that could really use this? ✨ #itsyoubabe

Coming home and getting back into our routine means getting back into our FITNESS routine too! Josh and I are cancelling our "budget" gym memberships and signing up for a gym that also has childcare and kids programs so we can make working out together a thing again. I hate having to spend my time working out away from him so we're putting an end to it! How do you feel about gym childcare??
We started out so well.... 🤦🏻♀️
I had a pelvic ultrasound today (part of the process of searching for potential reasons for my miscarriages) and as I sat in the waiting room I started thinking about Sparrow... this was the last place I saw my baby, alive with a strong heartbeat, at our 9 week ultrasound, almost a year ago. But this was also the same place we found out that our first baby was a boy, our Maverick, over 4 years ago. Memories of joy and sadness swirled around my head and my heart, and I carry that with me today. #oursparrowangel #miscarriage #pregnancyloss
Today we had dinner at the park. We learnt how to balance on a plank of wood, kick a soccer ball, and feed the ducks (or throw food at the ducks 🦆 😂).
Look at those muscles! 💪🏻 He is absolutely loving my parents yard and all the space to run!
Super productive day, but we obviously had to make time for play 💁🏼♀️✌🏻🎶 I wish somebody would had told me babe, some day these will be the good old days 🎶 isn’t it funny? We are in the good days right here and right now and most days we don’t even know it.

Living the best (mom) life ❤️
The other day, I was able to leave little sissy with my mom (Mimi) and take Selah to the beach, just the two of us. We had so much fun building sand castles, running away from the waves, jumping into waves and swimming. Sometimes it can be hard to balance life with more then one kid, but I’ve found that when I’m able, making time for one-on-one memories is so important, for me and for them. Motherhood is a constant journey, learning what is the best for yourself and your family is the most important thing, not trying to be that perfect person or comparing to another’s journey. Embrace the journey, don’t compare and take time for yourself.
When I do hair I take photos against this wall afterwards and today Kiks requested a little photo shoot after a client. So cute!
I WILL BREATHE
I will think of solutions
I will not let me worry control me
I will not let my stress level break me
I will simple breathe and it will
be okay because I didn't quit
So please don't quit. It's okay to feel stress. I just think in 10 years time is this moment in life really going to still be with me? 🤷♀️ Probably not. So I allow myself to have a moment but then I shake it off and keep moving forward onto brighter and happier times 💫💫💫
Balance essential oil helps me build inner strength to feel more stable and connected.
I love massaging this with carrier oil onto my neck and shoulders where I carry most the stress.
Perfect for the start of the day and even more beautiful for end of the day
Tag PLUS ACHTUNDNEUNZIG ..
Parallelwelt - bitte aussteigen. Echtes Leben - bitte einsteigen.
Wir sind zurück. In unserer Stadt, unserer Straße, unserem Haus...und auch ein klein wenig in unserem Leben.
Vorher habe ich mich nicht getraut, es öffentlich zu schreiben. Die Angst, dass es doch nicht klappt, das Schicksal dazwischen funkt war zu groß. Wir wussten auch erst am Tag unserer Abreise, dass es wirklich nach Hause geht. Und dann hatte ich so viel mit allem zu tun, dass ich keine Worte oder zu viele wirre Worte hatte.
Es ist völlig schräg und verrückt durch altvertraute Straßen zu laufen, den heimischen Dialekt zu hören, bekannten Gesichtern zu begegnen... Und so gewohnt das alles ist, so neu und anders ist es auch.
So lange ersehnt und dann doch geduckt und ängstlich. Angst davor, dass man sich nicht mehr zurechtfindet, herumirrend im Vertrauten. Denn so einengend diese Klinikglocke auch ist, so geschützt fühlt man sich durch ihre Grenzen und klaren Abläufen auch. ..
Und nun sind wir zurück. In einem Leben in dem niemand eine Ahnung davon hat, was alles passiert ist. Was das alles bedeutet hat und weiterhin bedeutet. Für Außenstehende ist das nicht greifbar. Es ist und bleibt völlig unwirklich. Unser ganz persönlicher Wahnsinn, der für unsere unmittelbare Umwelt immer ein Stück Geheimnis sein wird. ..
Das Leben davor. Die Parallelwelt. Das Leben danach. ..
Und was mich dann nachts umtreibt, wenn ich nicht schlafen kann ist - ..
Wo stehe ich jetzt und in Zukunft? Wofür stehe ich? Was bedeutet das alles für mein weiteres Leben? Privat, wie auch beruflich... Fakt ist, es hat Spuren hinterlassen. Tiefe Spuren voller Dankbarkeit und Ehrfurcht. Und das kann nicht einfach „verpuffen“ . Ich muss etwas tun, etwas mit dieser neuen, ganz eigenen Energie anfangen... meinen Weg dahin muss ich noch finden.
Jetzt geht es aber erstmal um unser Kleinfamilien-Leben. Unser System neu zusammenzusetzen. Unseren neuen-alten Platz zu finden. ..

"You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
And I believe, oh I believe
What You say of me
Lauren Daigle "You Say"
If you haven't heard this new release song yet, you need to go right now to YouTube and find it. It's so good! It's one of my favorite songs right now. What song are you loving lately?
Look who lost her first tooth guys!!!! How is she so big? How is she so cute? How is she already 5? HOW?!? Little miss pulled her first tooth out herself and her eyes were as big as the moon! Had her first visit from the Tooth “Larry” And no, that’s not a typo. 😂 The Tooth Larry leaves strange and unusual gifts under the pillow along with silly rap songs about teeth! She woke up to some used bubbles, a dollar + a tiny chunk of pink quartz to serve as a replacement tooth. She LOVED it all! Man, being a parent is awesome! 😆 especially to this growing + glowing snaggle-toothed beauty.💖
Baking, slicing, dicing ✨ I love being in the kitchen with my fam! I think it’s really relaxing. Anyone else?? 😋
Tassels & Balloons Are Our Favourite 💕
i mean if this isn’t a metaphor i don’t know what is
This is real life. Drool stains and condiments for entertainment, whatever works !!! 🤞🏼
✖️18•07•2018✖️ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today has been a particularly hard day. In short It’s nearly two years since I have fought with PTSD related to Birth Trauma.. and along with that came an array of anxieties, flashbacks etc. I battle daily with excruciating pregnancy/birth related pain, which often doesn’t let me sleep, in between the severely realistic night terrors its sometimes a blessing to get a few hours. I have, in my own words, ‘pathetic’ intrusive thoughts that on some days I can’t shift. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To the outside world and this little insta world it probably seems as though none of what I’ve just mentioned is even happening to me. Because I’ve become really good at putting on that ‘mask’ every day, because thats me normally positive enough to do that. Because often the above leads me to believe no one cares and to just shut up about it already. But some days ‘it’ wins and I feel worthless, exhausted mentally and physically and some days I need to go through the bad stuff in a whole heaping load of crying, stressing, manic mess. The searing pain gets too much when I stumble a little carrying Alden and for a split second I think I could just give up …, switch my phone off and lock myself away! But then I remember why I’m doing this. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well done if you’ve even read this far! ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I guess why I’ve wrote this is because I’ve seen other parents, and solo parents, who have been through similar to me, and their stories helped me see there is light at the end. Whether that be when I finally get a diagnosis for my pain, or when my mental health is more manageable but there is!⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So if your in that same position reading this, like I was once - for me it’s a solo parenting roller coaster…there are lows and that’s okay to go through.. because there are amazing beautiful highs which bring sunshine to your days!! & for now I remind myself to keep looking forward for my next hill up!
