#Repost from @mama_babyphd 🦋 Hi Im Mina! Follow me @mama_babyphd for mom truths and parenting support for your littles! There are so many layers of loss and shifts during #matrescence or birth as mama that we often highlight the obvious changes. But you know what adds up? All the little, but no so little things, that we dont even really consider when we become mamas like leaving the house THE EXACT moment you choose to leave the house. Especially during those early postpartum months, the very thought of packing everythinggg nd taking two kids out into a PREpandemic world seemed daunting and exhausting..now thats become even more challenging . 🦋All of these little, not so little, changes matter. Its a jolt, really, when you enter motherhood and it feels as though everything is different. But these are all losses and remnants of a life pre babies that matter. Its okay to recognize this impact and at the exact same time be so fulfilled (or not ) by your birth as mama . 🦋 so if you miss going to the bathroom alone without banging at the door, or even just laying down whenever you want..you are not alone..and you will get to do these things again soon because motherhood is seasons..some colder and longer than others, but they will pass...ooh I like this wording you may see this in its own quote later 🤣🤣 . 🦋what would you add?? Comment and let me know ! Share in your stories or tag a mama if this speaks to you!!🤍🤍🤍🤍 #momsofinstagram #rawmotherhood #realmotherhood #speakthesecret #pmads #ppd #podcast #matrescence #momsofinstagram #momsoftiktok #momlife #momtruth #momhacks #motherhoodishard #doctormom #mynameismama #postpartum #thisispostpartum #mommemes #breastfeedingmom #pumpingmom #formulamom #gentlemama #rawmotherhood
This is what #momlife looks like for me: ° Messy bun ° Dark circles under my eyes ° Oversized T-shirt ° Dishes in the sink ° Trying to enjoy a cup of coffee for the last 45 mins so it is cold now ° Let’s not even talk about laundry... I don’t need to look beautiful every day, I don’t need to be perfect. I just need to be their mama ready to hug, kiss, encourage... and of course feed them 20 times a day. But I smile every morning because this is what I always dreamed of, being able to stay home and... I don’t take that for granted! ♥️
I swear it was just yesterday I was their age playing with barbies myself. I remember begging my mom to play with me too. Every now and then I sit down to play with them, and they light up because they think it's the coolest thing. It is in these moments that I realize just how important a minute of my time is to these beautiful souls. Whether it is playing barbies, reading a book, doing a project, or just simply making eye contact and listening to them. IT MEANS THE WORLD TO THEM. Slow your roll, Momma. These fleeting moments won't last.
High waisted leggings are my jam. They are the best trend of all time. The higher the better. The thicker the better too. I’m all about hiding all my wiggly wobbly bits and then looking in the mirror and thinking “not bad. Not half bad” 🙌🏻 I thank my body for growing four healthy babies but man, that last pregnancy did a number on my mid section. Twins is no joke. Twins on the outside is awesome. Twins on the inside is not so awesome. At least it doesn’t feel awesome when your skin is so stretched that you feel itchy and numb all at the same time. And the weight of two babies at once on your back and legs and lady bits is all not awesome. So it’s no wonder that the aftermath is a sight to be reckoned with. I like to exercise when I can but I’m not super hard core about daily work outs. However, I eat fairly healthy and am in constant motion due to my constantly moving minions. I do daily 15 minutes or so of physical therapy for my back and hips (the other casualties of pregnancy ) but those exercises do help with my inner core. It’s been two years though and my ‘outer core’ may just always be a glaring reminder of all that it has been through. That’s not really so terrible. At least, I try to tell myself that. And then there’s always high waisted leggings. Thank God for high waisted leggings. Ps- I just got these pretty purplish pink ones from @athleta and they are totally fab. . . . #motherlove #twins #twinning #twinmom #highwaistedleggings #momtruth
I used to put such pressure on myself to be the "perfect mom". Having kids "young" I felt like I was constantly being judged and put a lot of pressure on myself, I didn't talk about a lot of things I experienced and tried to figure it all out alone. As time goes by ,I still feel myself feeling this pressure at times but I don't let it bother me in this way anymore. We are all just out here doing our best. Parents are faced with new challenges on a daily basis and we must remember that we are continuously learning as we go. We are surrounded by these images of perfection on social media. I know many of us don't intentionally post only the highlights of our life, of course we want to share the good times. We all just need to remember that behind the pictures we all have things going on that we don't share with the world and that's ok. I'm not perfect. I make mistakes, I forget things, I lose my cool and some days I go a little crazy. But at the end of the day it's okay because I love my children in a way that only a mother can. Don't be so hard on yourself. 💗 #momlife #realtalk
3 years ago, my son asked me a question that changed my life FOREVER.👇👇👇 With tears in his 2 year old eyes he asks, "Mama, why you leave me every day?!" 🤯 I thought my son loved his school, I mean we paid $15,000 for 8 months of care from 8-3 only. It was the best of the best in our area AND we got a 35% discount. He had the best teachers - they were loving, kind, highly educated, and experienced. He had friends whom we talked about daily and did fun, interactive activities. He was safe and healthy. But while those are great, you know what... my son didn't care about that, he wanted ME. I loved my job as a curriculum coach, AP teacher, and department head... and I was terrified to be a Stay At Home Mom... and we hadn't paid off our student loans yet. So I made a promise to him and to me that changed our lives! I'm coming home, baby boy. And I'll be there for you every step of the way. It took time and work: 👉Long nights. 👉Early mornings. 👉Intentional work during lunch hour and naptimes. 👉Working in my small pockets of the day. And 8 months later the student loans were paid off, and I had built a business where I could be home with my littles, earn an income, and be able to fill my cup as a working, independent woman WHILE being home with my littles.🔥 And now, 2 years and 2 more kids later - those exhausted moments were worth it! ✅ Mortgage paid each month ✅ Virtual homeschooling the kids without anxiety about having to work a normal 9-5 job. ✅ Learning and sharing healthy meals that cause my kiddos to crave veggies and fruits from the usual hotdog and Mac and cheese. ✅ Helping other women create financial and time freedom and growing a community of bad ass women! It took some time and took some work but IT 👏 WAS 👏 WORTH 👏 IT 👏 Are you like me? Is being home with your babies or future babies on your heart too while getting in the best shape of your life that will allow you to run around with them? Life isn't perfect, but you can create your own slice of heaven! The question is are you willing to take the leap to learn more? My "What Is Coaching Sneek Peak" is next week. Let's write your next chapter, together. ❤
When you walk into your home after a long day at work…how does it feel? Do you breathe a sigh of relief…or a sigh of dread looking at everything that needs to be done before you can actually sit down? When you wake up in the morning and head downstairs to start your day — do you feel energized? Like you have a totally fresh slate to begin this new day? Or do you start the day already feeling behind? ….looking for that lost left shoe…. ….scrambling to get the dishes done quickly before breakfast…. ….yelling at your kids to hurry up as they linger in their rooms trying to find the shirt they want to wear…. ….trying to remember which paper pile you put that form your youngest HAS to bring to school today, or he doesn’t get to go on the field trip next week…. On the weekends, do you feel excited for the time you and your family are going to spend together? Going on hikes, reading, playing games, watching movies… ….or are you simply thinking about the cleaning marathon you have to do in the middle of running errands and trying to somehow prepare better for the week ahead? Listen, Mama. I get it. I was there. Life felt like a blur. Everything felt overwhelming and chaotic, because I was spending all my time picking up after everyone and there was nothing left for myself at the end of the day. My house felt like a JOB, not like a HOME. But now? It’s the opposite, because simplifying and decluttering is a freeing process where we get to decide where our time is going to go from now on - instead of our house deciding all the tasks we need to constantly do. You can take your home back from the clutter, and it doesn’t need to be hard or scary or frustrating, either. DM me with your #1 obstacle when it comes to decluttering - I’d love to chat with you!

DOUBLE TAP & DROP A ❤️ if you can relate. Who’s struggling this week? 💬 SHARE a high or a low with other parents below. ⭐️TAG or SHARE with a friend. . 🦷FOLLOW @the .dentistmom for tips on taking care of baby teeth! __________________________ This past week, Olivia has truly tested me with her new burst of independence. She has pushed me away. Continuously hurt my feelings. Said “NO” more times than I can count. Fluctuated in mood. Refused to eat. Thrown toys across the room. Ripped off her diaper to pee on the ground. And yes, fought against teeth brushing. But oh how I love her, with a love so deep that it overwhelms my heart. Because, even at the end of our toughest days, As I put Olivia to sleep, I feel her little hand reach through the crib and grab mine. I feel how tight she clenches when she fears I’ll leave the room. So I lay there. On the ground. Beside her. Until I hear the deep rhythm of her breaths. Peaceful in her sweet dreams. To all you parents: Hang in there. On our children’s worst days… That’s when they need us more than ever. And through the struggles, Even when you think you’re failing, Nothing...absolutely nothing, will take away the fact that you are theirs, and they are yours. That alone is what makes you the most perfect parent of all. 🤍🤍🤍 . . . . . #mommyandme #newmom #honestmotherhood #uniteinmotherhood #motherhoodinspired #thisismotherhood #momsinspiringmoms #momlife #momtruth #motherhoodunfiltered #realmotherhood #bestofmoms #scarymommy #workingmomkind #momssupportingmoms #motherhoodquotes #momquotes #motherhoodunplugged #mommemes #kidsaretheworst #momsquad #realmomlife #honestlymothering #honestmotherhood #toddlermomlife #toddlerplay #babyledweaning #babysleep #newbornbaby #weareromper

Sunday funday, right? I know as a parent we wish for those Sundays where we could kick back and relax and not have to clean up but in actuality, those don't happen that often 😲However, I am a big believer that when things are organized, it takes so much less time to actually get things cleaned up so that you truly can have that Sunday funday or really any day! 🌟
This week I made a commitment in my relationship to kiss more, connect more outside of the bedroom, and also, to have more sex. _ And we did. And it wasn’t that difficult. In fact, it was pretty f*cking great. For me as a WOMAN and for US as a couple. _ If you’re rolling your eyes and feeling like there’s NO WAY you’d want to do that/have no time/no energy/no desire? I get that, too. _ But if FEELING more yummy and turned on and sensual and alive and connected DOES sound at all appealing to you? Then here’s how you might dip your toe in: _ 🔥Try putting a little pleasure on… everything. Focus on the sensuality that exists in eating, bathing, brushing your hair, slipping into pajamas, putting on lotion. Reframe your daily routine as a series of sensual rituals. _ 🔥Kiss your partner a LOT MORE, every day. Surprise them. Pounce on them. Reach out at times when you usually don’t. This feels good for you BOTH. If you don’t have a partner, kiss yourself in the mirror. _ 🔥Tell your partner 3 ways they could seduce your MIND wayyyy before they attempt to seduce your body. Or if flying solo, how can you self-seduce? _ I encourage you to make these first moves for yourself. You deserve to be your own EROTIC MUSE. You deserve to be steeped in the SENSUALITY OF LIFE. You deserve to be tuned into your sexuality as LIFE FORCE. _ Everything becomes juicier and more beautiful in this way of life. _ Drop a heart below if you're with me ❤️ _ 📸 @t .e.boudoir * * * #danabmyers #satisfiedmama #pillowtalk #couplegoals #sextherapist #loveandlust #sexandlove #sexlovemagic #sextherapy #sexual #sensual #sensuality #sexeducator #sensual #satisfiedmama #motherhood #newmomlife #momspiration #momssupportingmoms #momchat #momtruth #selfcare #selfworth #lifestyleblogger #blogger #honestmotherhood #igmom #loveyourself #spiritmindandbody #witchesofinstagram

𝕀'𝕞 𝕒 𝕞𝕠𝕥𝕙𝕖𝕣 𝕗𝕚𝕣𝕤𝕥. That’s why, when I knew I had to start working for us to make ends meet, I searched for something I could do from home. I was sick of sacrificing time with my children for an income. I saw another mama, just like me, 𝗭𝗘𝗥𝗢 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲, 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙩, 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙖 𝙝𝙪𝙜𝙚 𝙨𝙤𝙘𝙞𝙖𝙡 𝙢𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙖 𝙛𝙤𝙡𝙡𝙤𝙬𝙞𝙣𝙜, 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝘀𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝘀 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 an 𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝗼𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗺𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗮. And she wasn’t missing any moments with her child! In fact, her freedom was creating more. I had no idea if I could be successful. Actually at first, I assumed I couldn't😂 I was forced to confront my crippling fear of failure, insecurities & lack of self worth. It was in that moment 𝐈 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐭𝐡 𝐨𝐟 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐈 𝐰𝐚𝐬 & I realized that I didn't want to stay this fearful & insecure forever. 𝑺𝒐 𝑰 𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒑𝒑𝒆𝒅 𝒐𝒖𝒕 of my comfort zone, followed the step by step training & I’ve been blessed by my efforts. And I’ve been able to teach other women how to do the same thing! I’ve helped other mamas have more moments with their babies while earning money. I've seen them change from the inside out, as they realize they were created for more & capable of more than a life of settling & bare minimums.

I know SELF CARE is the last thing you want to invest in (maybe ) at the this. 🙄 I want to help you shift your perspective....Because we are taught that being a martyr, being selfless, and putting the needs of our children, partner, and house first is the "good mom's" role. ... 🤭 I am here to bump your ego off to the side, and I apologize to you, not your ego, if it offends you. ... But who said we had to not value ourselves first? Who says we should sacrifice ourselves? With common sense, I encourage you to invest in yourself and put yourself first for a change. ... I resisted this too, I felt offended someone would say you should be a selfish mom. But now I understand, that if I don't do my energy healing, my meditations, my yoga, & journaling, I am a mean mom. It is when I put myself first daily for a few minutes to an hour, my children trust me, they adore me, and they are grateful for me. And that is the experience as a mother I want for you. So take the time, and money to invest in yourself. This is why @feliciapetway and I have created the retreat for you! It's coming quickly. OCt. 10. learn more in link in bio.
Posture, posture, posture! . . . A few exercises I have been working on this week to help with my back and neck pain. I feel SO much better after doing these and immediately notice a difference in my posture when I’m finished. 1. Seated pulling straps 2. Mermaid stretch + twist 3. Standing neck imprinting 4. Standing wall slides If you don’t have a reformer use light hand weight a chair a yoga block or seated a mat!
✨ I love you beary much! 🐻💛 It’s been chilly the last couple mornings, so we’ve had to bundle up to be outside. Afternoons have been warm and sunny, but I know it won’t last much longer.

I see you,⠀ ⠀ Waking up when you’re not ready, tending to them with the energy you don’t have, wondering what else you could do differently, reading everything, trialling anything, but nothing.⠀ Nothing works, nothing feels easy, nothing seems fair. ⠀ ⠀ I see you, ⠀ ⠀ Starting each day with an empty tank, digging into your reserves, forever hoping tonight will be different, comparing. ⠀ Comparing yourself, comparing them, comparing everything to anything.⠀ ⠀ I see you,⠀ ⠀ Cat napping with your eyes open, operating with your eyes closed, wanting to do everything but struggling.⠀ Struggling to do anything, struggling to feel “normal”, struggling to be the mum you know you can be.⠀ ⠀ I see you,⠀ ⠀ Initially wanting to vocalise your struggles, to feel validated and not alone, but eventually not saying anything, just coping.

👋Hey there, I’m Bryce @mombrain .therapist I share about motherhood and everyday mental health. Anyone else’s brain at max capacity these days? This week I have found myself trying to remember passwords for all of my son’s virtual and in-person learning devices, dates that we have to do things by, medical appointments coming up and so much more. I’m sure I’m even forgetting a thing or two 😂 Our poor parent brains are overloaded and do you know what happens when we start forgetting, or misplacing these things? We feel pretty awful. After my own week of forgetting and having moments where I was a little too hard on myself, I’ve started thinking about how I can relieve a little pressure on my brain for everything it has going on. Nothing fancy, just simple things that might take a bit of the weight off. Here are some of my ideas I’m trying to implement, but I’d love to hear yours in the comments below: 🍎 have a grocery list the whole family can add to so it’s not on one person to always “remember” what is needed. 🔐 Invest in a password storage app or simply get a notebook where we keep the pertinent passwords for the kids needs (pediatrician websites, school log-in info, etc. ) 📅 Have a family google calendar (and actually use it ) so parents and other caregivers can have the important events on their radar. 📖 Use a planner...I’ve previously struggled with/avoided this, but feel like it might be time to dive in with all of the chaos of 2020. ❤️ And finally a health dose of self-compassion. You are not a robot and will inevitably forget, misplace, or just not show up somewhere you’re supposed to be and that’s OK! It just means you are a wonderfully imperfect human, just like the rest of us. 📚Link in bio to my mini-course Mom’s Temper Toolkit for help with your “mom temper”. #dailymom #mompreneur #bossmomlife #bossmoms #momguilt #momtruth #mommemes #momwin #momlife101 #scarymommy #parentingmemes #parentingwin #parentingtips #parentsupport #momsupport #momtips #kidmemes #kidsareawesome #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughig #mombrain #parentinglife #mothering #toddlertantrums #toddlermomlife #toddlermom #momofmultiples
