MEA break starts tomorrow for us here in Minnesota- and these two get a weekend with their grandparents while we go to California for a wedding. While being away from my kiddos gets old after a day or two, life has been so busy, I’m really looking forward to having uninterrupted conversation and sleep! What would you do with a four day weekend (without kids if you have em!)? 🤔
We found this little butterfly in a spider web but unfortunately he didn’t make it 😭 Matias was handling it so gently and laid him on the ground hoping he would recover. For many days after that Oliver made me come back to that spot to say « sorry butterfly! » like the good obsessive toddler he is. #itsthelittlethings
Trying to practice some rim light with one of my beautiful friends...in an awesome red dress. A red dress makes everything better...I think she has convinced me that I need to invest in a few just to spice up the everyday! ✨💃🏻 317:365
Wenn ich die beiden beobachte, wünsche ich mir auch einen Zwilling-neben mir in der Schubkarre , lachend über die unlustigsten Dinge 💛
Am frühen (#hüstel

Was für ein Glück, dass uns der Herbst 🍂 bisher so wunderbar gewogen ist. Das darf sehr gerne so weitergehen! ☀️
‘Nature is not a place to visit. It is home’
It takes one person to listen to you to make a difference, it takes one person to be honest to you so you don't feel alone. Just one.
I've been watching the cry on BBC and talking to some other mums about it and shared experiences.
I had post natal depression with Tinyfoot and I didn't with Littlefoot but I still really struggled. It was incredibly lonely, there was no one around to tell me what was normal and wasn't. I didn't have any friends in the area and it was so hard to get out with a newborn. I was expressing constantly because his tongue tie meant he couldn't latch so I couldn't leave the house. The nights were so hard and so long. With my second, she was so sick her first week of life that again I was so lonely. I wasn't well enough to walk about, we had our own room so there were no mums to chat to. You feel like you go through everything alone, sometimes you feel like you're failing because your baby won't settle or your baby won't sleep.
Motherhood is hard, those first few months when you're hormones are all over the place, your body is exhausted because giving birth is a trauma for your body. You don't sleep at night because the baby wants to cluster feed whether it's boob or bottle. You don't have a routine yet, you don't know your baby yet. I don't know anyone who hasn't struggled those first few months and that is completely normal. It's a huge adjustment having a baby or another baby. There is too much pressure to snap back mentally and physically, there's too much on you to do it all alone. It does get easier, you find your rhythm, if you have a newborn it is perfectly normal to find it hard or to struggle and you 100% should not feel guilty or ashamed about that. If you ever struggle and you don't have someone to talk to, I'm only a message away.

These little feet love adventures but oh the lows that follow once back home. I know it takes time to adjust back, but Lord send me all the patience. 😶
Any hacks to make it easier?

Have a nice Wednesday, dear friends!
Today and tomorrow I will visit master class of Elena Shumilova)
This little crazy went and stayed at Nana and Grandads for a little sleepover last night (1st time without her sisters). The house feels weirdly quiet without her...she’s such a character. The girls FaceTimed each other last night and they wanted to speak to her again this morning, they generally miss each other 💗 #sisters
