Warning::Super vulnerable post ahead. Have you ever made a decision and you feel is best but then you are questioning it from every angle? Thanks anxiety. Monday, it's a new week and has some new changes for us. As a parent the last week has had some hard transitions. What's an easy decision for some isn't always easy for others. All that's going in this world can leave me feeling unsteady! School. That one decision has been a hard one this year! Homeschool? Send him in a mask? Fear his safety? Will he adjust? Are we at risk? Can I manage educating with everything else? I feel guilty that I can't juggle it all! What's ultimately best for him and for us as a family? I'm sure many of YOU can relate. After much communication the choice was made. As a Momma I was super proud that my 7 year old said "I want to try going back to my school!". I told him this is a great way to overcome and grow. To push on! We prepared, prayed, finalized and moved forward. To some this seems so easy, silly or just a no question kind of choice. I don't mind homeschooling. The truth is I'm not a teacher. The curriculum we were given blew me away. The workload was overwhelming! Especially having two other little ones at home. Giving up control, especially of your children is hard. But that is part of the journey. We have to raise them up! Being a parent has some hard days. You constantly make decisions for little people that you hope will help and not harm. You want the absolute best for them. So they say, "if you worry you are doing a good job; you probably are. " So, as I dropped him off I said some prayers and stand by our decision with hope for good things! #likearrows #parenting #momtruths #faith #momsofinstagram #feelings #anxiety #blogger

Being a working mom is hard. I used to think, this isn’t that bad- I got this. I had full time help and was working part time. But the older my kids get, the more work there became. There is more schoolwork [pandemic aside], more feeding, more cleaning, more supervision and guidance. [PS everyone told me it would get harder but I didn’t believe them!] @mama .doctors reached out about a campaign focusing on putting on my oxygen mask first. #wearyouroxygenmaskfirst As with any emergency, you must always take care of yourself first or you will not be able to take care of your little ones. Despite the attention they need, my weekends are my time to recuperate and recharge for the next week. I always get a full 8-9 hours of sleep on both days. I’ve been limiting my screen time so I can sleep earlier. I want to say I have time to run off to the spa, and get manicures and pedicures but the truth is- I don’t! And given the pandemic I wouldn’t be going either way. But I do find myself taking care of myself at home and thankfully my girls have taken interest in it. I also try to get out for walks with friends as much as I can. Self care can be having alone time to vent, talk to an adult and just have a minute without someone calling out your name every 10 minutes. How do you prioritize self care as a mother? And this can apply to anyone? Are you a fur mama or a grandmama taking care of your grand babies? Or even just a mama to your business? That side hustle can slowly take over your life. Remember that self care is not wrong and needed to flourish!

✨NOT ALWAYS RAINBOWS✨ .. ✨Being a parent can look and feel like this. It can also look and feel like the next photos. All of these moments and emotions are valid. 💕 .. ✨I can post a million beautiful photos with all smiles, rainbows and sunshine. But the truth is, life doesn’t work that way. .. ✨Being a parent is the most rewarding and amazing experience I’ve ever been through in my life. But it’s also the hardest and most stressful thing I’ve ever done in my life. .. ✨Someone commented something on one of my funny motherhood reels that said something along the lines of “just don’t have kids then!” I was pretty disgusted by the comment and certain that this person didn’t have kids. .. ✨Of course there are days where I feel not cut out to be a Mom. Tired, overly stressed, needing a break. And yes I make silly jokes on reels about needing wine to survive motherhood and how crazy it can make me sometimes. .. ✨But I would never in a million years wish away my Nora Rae and my role as a mother. Even in the craziest of moments, I feel extremely blessed and lucky to have her here. And if you’re a parent, you totally get that as well. .. ✨And just remember that as a parent, you’re allowed to feel all the feels and experience all the emotions. You’re allowed to need a minute or not feel up to it now and then. It doesn’t make you a bad Mom if you just can’t handle it sometimes. .. ✨We’re here for it all. The good and the bad. The highs and the lows. It’s part of what being a parent is all about. 💕

I know this is a hard concept to grasp right now. Ultimately, the only thing we can control is US. Not our kids, not our spouse, not the dumb shit your dog does, not your aunt, mama, brother, sister, or Susie's brother's, sister's friend. ⁠ ⁠ If you're struggling try a few of the following today and this week. ⁠ 1. Turn off all news and social media. You'll live. ⁠ ⁠ 2. Set aside quiet time for just you and your thoughts. Pray, meditate, sit in silence with your coffee. Just be alone.⁠ ⁠ 3. Journal. Write in an actual notebook or open a word document and just GO to town on whatever pops in your head. ⁠ ⁠ 4. Go on a walk. ⁠ ⁠ 5. Read a book that is just for fun. ⁠ ⁠ 6. My Personal FAV. DANCE 👏🏼IT 👏🏼 OUT 👏🏼 💃🏼 Turn on the music and MOVE YOUR BODY💃🏼⁠ ⁠ If you could do 1 or two of these a day and create a habit out of them, you'll be able to breathe a little easier. What do you do to destress? 👇🏼

Ok so the moment I found out I had broken my wrist on my dominant arm and that would be spending the next 5-7 weeks in a cast - my first words were “oh shit...really?”. I knew that I would really struggle to look after my two young children during this time; getting them dressed, doing my daughters hair for school and changing my little boys nappies - tasks that are at times a challenge with two hands. I didn’t even think about the things that I’d now struggle to do for myself. I came on my period the day after surgery, well let me tell you trying to put in my menstrual cup was an epic fail and I had to give up and pop it back in the bathroom cabinet. I figured I’d probably get two period during my time in this cast. So I decided to try out a brand of period pants, I was a little sceptical but @wukawear had some fabulous reviews. I purchased four pairs, three medium flow and one heavy flow. I must say I’m loving them! 👍🏻 No I didn’t leak through 👍🏻 Yes they are super comfortable 👍🏻 Nope I didn’t feel like I had a big nappy on 👍🏻 No they don’t feel wet when pulling them back up after a wee 👍🏻 No my underwear didn’t smell 👍🏻 Yes they wash well 👍🏻 Yes they dried in time before I needed them again. I hung them on our heated clothes horse. They really have made this period so comfortable and easy!

Ya know, when I think of all the little unexpected joys of parenting, it’s gotta be the games that I love the most. Like treasure hunts! But there’s no clues, just riddles from a 3 foot tall Willy Wonka. No treasure. And no winners! The pool test kit has been missing for 2 days. Little hands swiped it. It turned up today in the fold of the hood of the friggin pram! What the ever loving fuck?! I didn’t even know that was a place that you could hide shit!! 😳🤦‍♀️ #itsallfunandgamesuntilyouhavetoraidthefuckingbin

Hello Momstars!! I am sure you are all well and keeping safe. So, I was thinking about the challenges we face as mothers and home managers 😁 and one thing that bothers me is how we manage meals(our food ) in the home. From my own experience, it takes a lot to just think about what the family will eat😓. It can be draining! Secondly, it is one thing to have a meal plan; it is another thing to implement the plan. We have done well with regards to following the timetable but we are flexible as well. Please! Please! Please! You don't have to make everything fresh o! Make life easier for yourself, buy already- made beans flour for moimoi, you don't have to be like our mothers that made us peel egusi and pound before cooking🙄🤦‍♀️😭 You don't have to cook everything from scratch! Please share your experience and tips, I would like to learn too! . . .

Having a sick child is the absolute worst. Having a show or movie you can put on that totally captures their attention and allows them to rest and be calm is priceless in these situations. We’ve had Toy Story on repeat this past weekend and it’s been a life saver. When I’m sick I know all I want to do is lay down and be entertained by something on TV. Kids are no different. Thank you Toy Story for being so entertaining for my child and for me to be honest. They are such cute movies. ❤️ #momcomedy #honestmom #toddlermom #parentingtips #toystory #toddlersofinstagram #tiredmomsbelike #toddlerlife #parentingishard #momsbelike #tiktok #parentsbelike #momhumour #momhumor #disneyplus #parentingmeme #disney #tomhanks #sarcasticmom #momsbelike #mommeme #funnymoms #motherhood #momtruths #momstruggles #parentinghumour #parentsbelike #parentingmeme #timallen #myhonestmotherhood

Building core strength postpartum 🔑 . These exercises are my favorites to start re-connecting with the core in postpartum. Learning how to breathe correctly and activate our deep core muscles that were shut off during pregnancy is so important to start with when returning back to exercise. . You can see in the videos that I take a big inhale filling up my ribs and stomach and as I exhale I’m thinking about drawing my ribs and core together as I lift my pelvic floor up (we don’t want pressure down! ). This is 🔑 1️⃣Marches 2️⃣Leg slides 3️⃣Squat with ball squeeze- i start with some inhales to fill my ribs, stomach and back and then gently squeeze into the ball on my exhale. Inhale on the way down into the squat and as you exhale and come up, push into the ball gently 4️⃣Side plank with ball squeeze @ knees, hold for 15-20s 5️⃣Bear hold breathing, long exhale drawing hip bones together and pelvic floor up and hold for 5-10s . If you’re in late pregnancy or early postpartum, save this workout to try when you’re ready for some gentle movement!

The more we speak to parents, the more we hear how postpartum doesn't end at 100 days. Yes, the fourth trimester is transformative and marked by very particular ups and downs but on that 100th day there is no graduation. The movement through postpartum is so much less leaving it behind and much more coming out of the fog and then settling into your new life, postpartum forever. When you create a family, you are changed. Period. So whether you are 10 days postpartum or 10 years, we see you and you are welcome here.

Hey friends, it’s me Louise! I hate social media intros and think they’re 🙄 so this is not an intro, but a few tidbits on me * I work full time (from home, precovid ) * I love to eat, I usually think about my next meal while eating my current one 🤣 * I LOVE to be surprised, but am rarely surprised because I’m too much of a planner * I just launched my digital shop last month @helloelliejco * I never felt like I fit in, but now I see as an adult it was a blessing and I’m super independent * If you ask me where I got my nails done I’ll usually tell you they’re press on 🤣 * Basically I love to eat, craft and I love my kids but I believe being someone outside of just a mom is huge for my mental health 🙌🏽 * I like to keep it real ✌🏽 So tell me something about you!


Non school uniform for this one yesterday and she adamantly didn't want to wear leggings and a hoodie! The older 2 are such polar opposites its mad! Lillie would never wear a dress/skirt and Lailah would never wear joggers 🤣 This means passing down clothes is no longer an option 🙈 I love having 3 totally different children proving gender means absolutely nothing because personality far outshines what a person looks like ♡

So I’ve stopped breastfeeding. This was the last time that I did. I’m pretty sure it was harder on me than on him because as much as I don’t enjoy it like other moms, now that it’s over I feel some kind of regret covered in guilt. Honestly, it was just too much, for ME. Between homeschooling and the house, the other 2 kids and trying to feel good myself and do things I love, I felt like a machine and I wasn’t happy. He was great, and that’s why I feel guilty. Because he latched on great and he loved our time nursing. So it feels kind of selfish. Because I did it for my sanity. But he’s so very okay, they always are, it’s always us with the extra thoughts. He’s been on full formula for two days and he’s doing good. We had to switch to a new brand because he was fussy and seems to be adjusting much better to it now. When we were introducing formula, I got to thinking how crazy it is that society makes you feel that formula is like poison. There are so many reasons so many of us can’t or simply don’t want to breastfeed. And guess what that is okay. No matter what path you choose for your child, we all do it with the best intention and heart. And thought I still have some lingering “guilt” I know it’s all just a societal guilt. And Sebastian will be okay just like his siblings. The funny thing is that, Ben who was BF for just 4 weeks has zero allergies and rarely gets sick. Emme was BF for 6 months and she has a peanut allergy, catches a cold in the blink of an eye and is guaranteed to get croup every single winter. And I’m not saying she is less healthy because of BM but it’s interesting to me. All this to say, I wanted to share that we are done with the “liquid gold” and I did it for me. And sometimes that’s the best thing we can do as mamas, do things for YOU to make THEM happier♥️ #momofthree #motherhoodunplugged #momtruths

Max recently had a cold and I absolutely freaked out. We all know runny noses go hand in hand with little children and the fall. But I can't tell you the panic I felt when he developed a low fever. Suddenly a cold isn't just a cold anymore when you're in the middle of a pandemic. My mom gut told me he was fine but there's no doctor's note that justifies that. I can't send him back to school, continue to teach my classes and be out and about in our neighborhood because I "think" he's okay. 🌿 ... So I scheduled a Covid test for both Max and I. The total process ( including the phone call for the appt ) took about 20 minutes. We drove up, right here in Charlestown and just did it. Based on what I had imagined it to be like, I'd even call the process pleasant. We didn't get out of the car, rolled down the windows and that was it. Max was a champ and shouted, "I did it." Easy and painless. Within 24 hours our results came back negative. My actual nightmares about single handedly shutting down our entire neighborhood ended. Thank goodness. 🙌🏻 ... I'm sharing this because when you don't know what it's like, the process can feel scary. It's the worst to feel overwhelmed or like you will traumatize your child. I felt both of these things but it was all okay. I simply talked to Max about what would happen and he was fine. And so was I. I am also grateful that we have a testing site right in our own neighborhood. I can't speak to what it's like elsewhere but here in Charlestown it was simple, organized and easy. 🌿 ... The peace of mind that comes from knowing, for sure, is priceless. As a community, we need to take care of each other. Also a timely reminder to never, ever take your health and loved ones for granted. 💕 ... ... #momtruths #brothers #boomerbrothers #covidtest #charlestown #bostonmom #bostonmoms

Be patient with yourself. You are trying.⠀ ⠀ Do you ever feel that it’s easier to be kind and understanding to others, over yourself. ⠀ ⠀ We set goals for ourselves but instead of being understanding that things happen when we fall short, we feel disappointed, lazy or something similar ⠀ ⠀ We feel guilt for things we would tell others to not worry about ⠀ ⠀ We see flaws as weakness, shortcomings or something similar ⠀ ⠀ Your not alone... me too. I’m in therapy and I was afraid to share or tell others. I don’t want to be seen as weak, unstable or something similar. But the best part about therapy is that it’s teaching I am none of these things. I am learning to give myself kindness, compassion and grace. ⠀ ⠀ Do you practice being kind to yourself?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #kindness #selfkindness #motherhoodunplugged #therapyworks

Do you ever find yourself offering grace and compassion to others, but being critical of yourself?⁠ ⁠ It’s important to understand where and how this narrative developed. It’s also important to unlearn these scripts and develop language that is loving and compassionate to both ourselves and others. Self-kindness can have a significant impact on your mood (and your physiology! ).⁠ ⁠ In my course Keeping Mommy in Mind, I teach you how to understand where this narrative came from and help you find more helpful thinking processes. You can learn more and enroll through the link in bio ❤️⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .
