I got really lucky when I married The Scientist... Not only did I marry an amazing and kind man but I gained an extraordinary Step Son. Aaron you are one of the greatest Gift in my life. I adore you and love you for all eternity. You are kind, funny, intelligent, witty, brave and we have so much fun together. Can’t wait to continue to travel the world together as a family. Happy National Son’s day #son #stepson #family #bonusmom #blendedfamily #myheart #aaron

Today is apparently National Family Day... So I'm taking the opportunity to show them off ❤️. My big beautiful blended family full of noise, chaos, bickering, teasing, laughter and most importantly love. I am truly one blessed mom 😊 #blendedfamily #bradybunch #myfamily #chaoscoordinator #momownedbusiness #livingthedream #myreasontosmile #missourimom #missourigirl #midwestmom #momsofinstagram

I am out alone and doing something for me for the first time since the boys arrived... 24 weeks! I am at the hairdressers. Not quite the same with all this covid and I’ll miss having a cup of tea made for me, but I am going to enjoy sitting down doing nothing 🖤 #fostermama #fosterfamily #advocate #stepmom #stepmomlife #birthmom #miraclebaby #onlyone #bonuschild #fostercare #fight #foster #biological #strongertogether #support #attachment #boys #girls #allages #personalblog #fostermama #blendedfamily #fostercarelife #twinsofinstagram #spinabifida #selfcare #hairdressers #haircut #metime

Happy #nationalsonday !!! This adorable little cowboy has up and stolen my heart 💖 I love him just as though he is my own, and I firmly believe God had this aligned from the very start. I've learned not to question anything after being blessed as a bonus mom, he turned on the switch of knowing how to be a mom before I had gracey back in my life. Not enough words can sum up how alive I've become since learning the balance of being a blended family and chosen to help raise this little guy to one day become a man 💖💖💖 it's an honor and a privilege. #blendedfamily #bonusmomlife #bonusson #blessedbeyondmeasure #givinggratitude #godsplannotmine #momsofinstagram #sonsofinstagram #stopgrowing #allignment #greatfulaf #bestgiftever #thankful #giftthatkeepsongiving #deaconmonsterboy

ALL THREE of my bio children in one picture! How rare that is for us. If you’re just checking in, I also have 5 bonus children and 1 foster😝 We had a great Skype call last night and the boys really appreciated how big their sister is. The last time Brayden saw her she was a few weeks old! We all can’t wait to be reunited during winter break!⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ #parenting #consciousparenting #homebirth #coparenting #blendedfamily #couplegoals #suicideprevention #endthestigma #menmattertoo #iloveyoumore #fatherhood #newborn #mindfullness #mensmotivation #menmatter #bevulnerable #bepresent #mentalhealth #wellness #dontgiveup #guiltfree #miniblog #youarenotalone #consciousdads #presenceoverpresents #mentalhealthawareness #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthformen #familyof11 #flowstate

⭐️⭐️ BOOK REVIEW ⭐️⭐️ “Any one who has lived through the daunting task of blending two families can tell you it comes with challenges and triumphs you could never have anticipated. In this beautiful book the author captures both the highs and lows of blending in a heartfelt and hilarious recount of personal experiences. Her insightful and thoughtful approaches offer a great guide for a newly blended family and a nostalgic feeling of solidarity for those of us who have been there. A reminder that none of us are perfect but if your heart is in the right place and you’re willing to try, you’ll soon find yourself on the other side of your blended mountain.” - Melanie Kagan, CEO, The Center for Family Resources Blended Mom of 5 #bookrecommendations #bookreviews #bookrecs #bookcommunity #blendedfamily #blendedfamilies #blendedfamilylove #blendedfamilyproblems #blendedfamilysupport #stepparenting #stepparentlife #parentingtips #parentingishard #parentinglife #blendedfamilycommunity

Repeat that as many times as you need to for it to sink in. It doesn’t matter what “best for you” looks like. It looks different for everyone. It’s still ok and don’t you dare feel bad about it. If it means removing yourself from the situation, then do it. If it means speaking up, then do it. If it means crying in bed for a little bit, then do it. And then get back up and put one foot forward. If it means asking for help, then do it. If it means setting limits and boundaries, then do it. If it means stepping back instead of stepping in, then do it. People’s thoughts and expectations don’t get to replace your own. I wish that we could all see ourselves the way we see and admire other moms and stepmoms. You are amazing, too! . . . . . . . #stepmoms #stepmom #stepmother #stepfamily #stepmomlife #stepmomsupport #stepmomstrong #stepfamilysupport #stepmomquotes #bonusmom #bonusmomlife #blendedfamily #blendedfamilies #blendedfamilylife #momlife #mama #momconfessions #momtruth #momsandproud #mondayvibes #liferules

It was National Sons Day on Friday! Here’s Mark with the boys in 2015, and now in 2020. I never thought I’d have kids, but raising three stepkids, (two of which are boys ) sure gives you an insight into the male psyche! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyone else gain new perspective from raising boys?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nationalsonsday #stepmom #stepparenting #stepkids #stepboys #bonuskids #stepmomstruggles #bonusmom #stepmumsupport #fullcustody #teenageboys #childlessstepmom #blendedfamily #blendedfamilylife

Aug 24th, 2016 (left ) to Sep 17th, 2020. Left picture was when we got the keys to our townhouse. Our first home as a family. Our first nest. We sat on the floor, held each other, cried from happiness, planned out the wall color, kind of floor to use, etc. 4 years later..... Last Saturday we gave our keys to the realtor to give to the new owners. We sat again and I cried, I cried as I went from room to room making sure we were not leaving anything tangible behind, I cried from sadness to leave our old home, where we became a family, where we went through so many struggles and laughter. Where we planned our wedding. But it was time to let go. We bought our DREAM home. A place I never imagine we could call ours. A place where new memories will be made, new tears shed and where we hope to grow old. I am still crying, from sadness and happiness.... . Now to continue making memories. @ikaros_4 #newhome #goodbyeoldhome #turningthepage #newchapter #blendedfamily

Swipe >> to see the day I became both of their mama 🤍 Timmy and I were woken up early this morning with some crashing noises and tiny voices *attempting* to whisper. I went to check, and the kids were awake... they had pulled out all their LEGOs and were giggling & playing together trying to not wake us up. I went back to my room with a big smile on my face. When Timmy and I had the kids meet 4 years ago I never would have imagined our life would turn out this incredible. Blending a family is hard work at times, but mornings like these make it all worth it!! Danny & Talia have become more than brother and sister, they are truly the best of friends and my mama heart is oh so full 🤍🤍 These two are only 1 day apart! I can’t wait to celebrate their birthdays in a month, but also can’t believe they’ll be S I X 😬 As I look back on this picture (yes, I took pictures like a crazy paparazzi mom the first day they met lol ) I can’t believe how little these tiny 2 year olds were! They’ve grown so much, and I can’t wait to continue watching what beautiful souls they grow up to be! Living a life beyond my wildest dreams, and blessed to be their mama🤍

Stop living in the mindset of "struggle love" or "ride or die love". I've personally witnessed women fight harder over the babymoma title than wife. True Story: I finally got the balls the time before the time before last time🤣 to let that n**** miss me for the last time😉. Now I'm getting myself in position for the Mrs. Don't misread that either, I'm mentally preparing not making modifications. You're already ready and always remember that.

Apparently I missed the memo about daughters day and sons day 🤷🏻‍♀️😂❤️ But in my world, every day is a day to be thankful for these little (and not so little ) ones 💕 — We don’t do step. We don’t do half. We just do family. I’m so blessed to have the privilege of being a momma and these 5 are my world, blood or not. Nothing will ever come before them, and just as Scott and I said in our vows - we will spend our whole lives making sure they know how loved they are. You guys are our greatest accomplishment ❤️ - #daughtersday #sonsday #alwayslatetotheparty #familyiseverything #blendedfamily #motherhood #blendedfamilylife #marriagegoals #happilyeverafter

The cutest little witch I ever did see 🧙🏻‍♀️🎃🖤✨🥰 . Halloween has been the ONLY vibe in the Jauch house the last few weeks, and we are not complaining about it! . So far we have decorated, watched Hocus Pocus (a billion times ), baked brownies, played dress up with costumes , made paper chains and the little wooden ornament painting kits! Today we are having a family outing and I think I will let each of the girls pick out a fun Halloween shirt! . .

Rule #1 in life DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY🌼 Lets start the week off with a positive mind! Forget what happened at work Friday! Forget the people who didnt come through for you when you needed them! Most importantly forget everything that doesn’t bring you peace! Get you some God, make a plan and be intentional on taking back your power! Don’t let the troubles of this world dictate your mood, you set the vibe for the day! The power is yours! Set yourself free🌼 I love how i can change up the vibes in my space by just adding a pop of color! Orange is my favorite color after blue😉 This sweet pumpkin candle, Flavor not only smells delicious but it goes well with my decor and adds some sass to my cloffice🧡

This week's #mondaysmom is Charity Marshall! @charitybmarshall Charity has four very active little princesses! While all four have different personalities, the foundation that Charity and her husband, Nathan have laid remains the same - Jesus Christ! Charity stands for justice, she’s adventurous, thoughtful, and compassionate towards others and encourages her daughters to do the same. Way to go, Charity! You are doing it!

I often remind myself that the things I have now are the things I used to pray for. Whether recent or many years ago my prayers have been answered in my family and in our life. Certainly not every prayer is meant to be answered and most wont be answered in the way we would have hoped but somehow I got here due to many “unanswered” prayers. When I wonder if I’m being heard, I look at him and our kids I know that without a doubt I am. An unanswered prayer is not a sign of a God who isn’t listening but rather a God who knows you better than you do and is pushing you to something greater. 💛

Oh wait. We already have kids. We knew our story would be different from any story we knew before. And it would be way different from most people’s stories. In a blended family, the chapters in your story are different. And often out of order. We met, fell in love quickly, got married and had an immediate family. There was no build up, no transition period and no words of wisdom for starting life in a blended family. It just happened. Our family firsts were different from our friends’ firsts. Our struggles were way different than their struggles, which meant our efforts and approaches had to be different. We had to do it “our” way. “Our way” looks different week to week and it’s by no means ever perfect. We still have so much growing to do. But there are a few things we try to be aware of... •We embrace our firsts as if they may never come again because that’s our reality. We make big deals out of little moments. We only have 26 weekends out of each year for us to all be together so every day counts. •We try to keep what other people do and how they do it out of our house. Just because that family looks like they’ve got it all together doesn’t mean they do...or that it’ll work for us. Don’t compare to other families (blended or not ) but it’s ok to take a strategy or a “fix” and make it your own. •Connect and decompress with your partner. Find time to talk about what went well and what didn’t. And use that time to grow as a couple so that you can ultimately grow as a family. •Connect and decompress with yourself! Ask your partner for some time to sit alone and work through your thoughts. What could you have done better today? Could you have said that thing you said differently? It’s important to pull away briefly to stay connected with yourself and who you desire/aspire to be. Your story may not be picture perfect, but as long as you focus on making the ending good, I think you’ll be happy with how it turns out. . . . . #ourstory #ourblendedfamily #blendedfamily #blendedfamilies #blendedfamilylife #blendedfamilystrong #blendedfamilysupport #stepmoms #stepfamily #stepmother #bonusmom #bonusdad #bonusmomlife #stepfamilysupport #marriagegoals

When we deprive women of the things they need because we are too busy with life's distractions, too selfish, or downright stubborn they start to distance themselves from us. When they distance themselves from us it leads to dysfunction in the family and when dysfunction starts to build up it will eventually lead to destruction. We need to relinquish our selfishness, our desires, and our individualism to another. If you want success in your relationship start by committing yourself to the one you love the most.

"Some families are created in different way, but are still in every way FAMILY" 🥰 We don't have the conventional storyline of meeting when we were younger, dating for a while, getting married, deciding to have a baby, and then creating a family. No, our story was much different. I didn't meet Cara W until Myla was 5 years old. She has never really known anything but only having me as her Mom because her birth father chose not to be in the picture since she was 11 months old. It wasn't until Myla was about 2.5 years old that I finally decided to come out because I was in a safe space where I felt like I could, and I knew it was now or never for me to be my authentic self. I had dated other women in the years before meeting Cara W, but no one that was ever introduced to Myla, or that I was certain was the person for our little family. However, when we met, I had an undeniable connection to her. Her understanding, her kindness, her receptiveness to not only just me, but the fact that I had a tiny human, and we came as a package deal, were among the many reasons I knew she was the one for me, for us👩‍👧 She never hesitated, never second guessed, and never felt unsure about having Myla as part of her life. Actually, I truly believe that the first time Cara W met Myla, is the moment she became a Mom ☺️ She had always wanted children, and had honestly gotten to a place in her life where she just didn't think it was possible for her dream to have a family to ever be a reality. Like I said, our story is much different, but it is no less beautiful 🥰 I look at our family now, and my heart just swells with pride, love and complete joy from the happiness and fullness of it all. This is US! This will always be us! Our family might have been created differently, but we are still in every way a family, and I wouldn't have it any other way! Is your story a little different from the "norm"? Do you find yourself building something a little unconventional, yet undeniably beautiful? Just know that every story is it's own, and just as equally valid, amazing and filled with special little intricacies that make it uniquely incredible❤️
