Mom: a person who never stops giving. ***
Let’s be honest- no matter how much we try to do the “me time” thing it never works- while your out every second you are still thinking of your sweet baby/babies. Motherhood has taught me some strong things- most people say it has taught them love and kindness.. but for me, motherhood (which is the scariest hood I have ever been through to be quite frank), has taught me that I don’t pay enough attention to me, that I don’t have complete self control.. it has showed me to love but it has also shown me why we need discipline, it has shown me how to be nurturing but has also taught me how to be stern. The MAIN thing it has taught me though is that it is okay to make mistakes, that I am not the perfect parent and that is OKAY. Yes mommas, it is okay not to be perfect. Being a mom can be so challenging sometimes but it is so rewarding at the end of the day when your babies kiss you and give you hugs. Everyday is a challenge between who and when you give your time too. We are often selfless and give everyone our time but we don’t give us our own time. I’m #1 guilty of that, for sure! But I’m learning- because I can’t fill another cup from an empty cup and I can’t take care of my family if I don’t take care of me mentally and physically. Mamas are some superhero’s and I am not quite sure what I did to deserve the role of being a mom but I will take it... I’ll take it through the late nights, the meltdowns, the screams, the arguing, the sass, the hugs, the kisses.. all of it. Being a mom is what makes my life meaningful- and I have l learned that I got this!! And so do you mama, you got this! When you start feeling overwhelmed remember your not alone and that it does get better and it will be okay. One day at a time, even if it is a minute at a time, you (we) will survive the toughness of motherhood. #moms #supermoms #momencouragement #autismmom #autismmommy #autismparent #asd #autismspectrumdisorder #wewillmakeit #letsdothis #positive #positivemindset #autismsupport #momsrock #mommylife #momlife #blogmom #blogger #momstuff #moms #momsofinstagram #quotes #encouragingmothers #motherhood #mothercare

Aunt Mert is in town from Australia!!!! Love her and forgot how much we miss her!!! ❤️❤️ #australiangirl #redhead
Holding on to her forever 🧡 These past few nights have been tough. She has been waking up screaming and just wanting to be held. So sad to see her in pain due to teething😩. I’ve been trying natural ways to make it easier for her during the day but nothing seems to work at night. I’m open to recommendations so please share what has worked for your little one 🙋🏽♀️
Really hoping to get some sleep tonight
Motherhood is the source of the universe.

Benefits of prenatal yoga include the strengthening, flexibility and endurance of the muscles needed in child birth. This means easier birthing for you and baby 👶🏽💕
Brother bear is turning 2 in three months! Seriously, where did the time go! He is such an adventurous and social little guy who is not afraid of anything. Very much like his dad and it’s admirable. 🌻
Theo’s still not 100%, so while he has a sleepy day at home with Nannie, the girls and I are doing what we do best, shopping up a storm and eating our way around Raro 🌺
COMO DOU CONTA DE DOIS
Desde que eles nasceram me fazem essa pergunta e o que eu sempre respondo é que, na real, eu não dou conta de dois! Não consigo! Desde que eles nasceram eu tenho alguém comigo, ou é meu marido, ou é minha sogra. - “Ah, mas fulaninha tem 25 filhos e consegue tomar conta de todos, trabalha fora, faz tudo em casa e ainda cozinha” - Meus parabéns pra fulaninha, admiro muito, mas eu Patrícia, não consigo. Cada um sabe seus limites, cada casa tem um ritmo, cada mãe é uma mãe.
Eu sou uma mãe que ama ser mãe, mas que não consegue ficar sozinha com eles. Sou uma mãe que conseguiu amamentar no peito desde o começo, mas que teve que complementar com fórmula por um tempo. Sou uma mãe que gosta de brincar, cantar, conversar, mas que às vezes fica esgotada. Sou uma mãe carinhosa que, apesar do pediatra falar que não pode, não resiste e da beijo no rosto. Sou uma mãe que erra, sou uma mãe que acerta, mas o mais importante sou uma mãe que aprende e sempre busca melhorar.
E você, que tipo de mãe você é
Where did summer go!
I sure kept this one busy though. I'm happy to say his summer was packed full of adventures, projects, and new experiences. 💚
We still have a few more trips planned before the season changes but my heart already aches knowing this time is coming to a close.
C o l o r c o m b o || how gorgeous is this grey and pink together, not her color, but I think we love it so much now 😍🌸💕

I was having a yogurt with my dinner. He hasn’t had one in a long while and asked to try it. He loved it and wanted his own! I love this adventurous eater of mine.
Little red caught my attention in the woods! Never seen any mushroom 🍄 like this!
From the top, it looks like a heart shape! Later I realized there is a little bug on the top! It might be his home 🏡! Love to hiking, love to discover new things! Hope you all discovered something today! ❤️❤️
we usually treat ourselves after Riv’s doctor appointments because we get all stoked we hit another milestone and kind of feel like we passed some imaginary test each time. it used to be family dates to get ramen, but a picnic on the beach seemed slightly more appropriate in this 90° weather. happy 15 months, dude man!

Deep breath —>Drink your shake
AND HANDLE IT mama .
A trip to the ER, pharmacy, orthodontist, pediatrician, back to the pharmacy, then the dentist in just over 24 hours.
Throw in a teething baby —> who just wants his mama 🤪🤪
It’s 4 pm and I’m just having “lunch” ((aka fastest shake ever with blueberries and spinach)) so I don’t pass out from low blood sugar 🤦🏼♀️and I’m going to attempt to workout with the baby in tow.
Sometimes it ain’t pretty.
Sometimes I feel like I’m loosing my mind
But ...we Try to handle it with a lot of grace and gratitude that if our biggest problems are teething and some stitches !!
We are gonna survive!
Happy Tuesday mamas !
I salute you in your daily battle for organized chaos 🤣🤣.

When I found out we were having a baby girl I became very passionate about big bows and safer beauty, which led to safer products all around. Yes, she’s only 9 months, but I can’t wait to teach her that safer makeup doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality and performance. I’m just thankful I learned now, so I can teach her and help her to be better.
In honor of #worldbreastfeedingweek, I want to thank my sweet Hunter for going on this journey with me. Moments spent nursing you have been some of my favorite parts of motherhood thus far. Thanks for also teaching me the art of being a multitasking mama! #breastfeeddingwhilesigningdischargepapers😉 #motherhood #postpartum #breastfeeding
We’ve made it to the middle of the week, we’re all still alive and surviving of bulk coffee ✌🏼☕️ This weekend is going to be a funnnn one! Hurry up Friday ✨
I love saying I’m a mother of 3. My eldest is 20, my boy is 17 and my baby is 7. Children are a blessing.
Ain’t that the truth!!! 👆🏻💜
You guys I just finished dinner 🥘 and it was so dang good!!!
Yep you heard me! I made these delicious ribs in the crockpot😋!! I’ll post the recipe so you can make it as well!
Seriously do it!!! They were fall off the bone ribs and tasted so so good!!!
3 racks baby back ribs
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon parsley
1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1.Cut each rack of ribs in half so that they fit easily in the slow cooker.
2.In a small bowl, whisk together the paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and parsley.
3.Sprinkle the dry rub over each side of the ribs and use your hands to press it into the meat.
4.Add the apple cider to the bottom of a slow cooker and place the ribs in the slow cooker.
5.Cook, covered, on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
6.When ribs are nearly falling apart, carefully remove them from the slow cooker to a large baking sheet. Brush with barbecue sauce.
7.Place under the broiler until the sauce has thickened and begun to caramelize, about 5 minutes.
I can’t even believe it! I am social media famous!! First off I’d like to thank my husband and kids for never cleaning the house, never picking up anything whatsoever, and bugging me so bad i cope by making jokes. And I’d like to thank instagram for giving me a platform to share those jokes. And I’d like to thank god for creating the world. So I can make mom jokes. Sorry I’m not good at speeches.. but thank you for following! I hope that I continue to have crappy days and turn them into something to laugh at. God bless!!! (In case you don’t know me... this is supposed to be funny.)
Happy World Breastfeeding Week to all the mamas out there.🤱🏽 I share my struggles, my story, and my journey in the hopes that I can help, inspire, and motivate others to become the best version of themselves. Whoever, whatever that is.
Health, career, life, personal, marriage goals...I have them all. But, I never thought in a million years that this right here would be such a big one of mine and that I’d share it so openly.
To say that we made it to a year with all the struggles we had in the beginning, blows my mind. There were so many days that I wanted to quit and give up...then I was told, “Don’t quit on your worst day. If it’s a good day and you find that it just isn’t working for the both of you, you’ll be much more ok with your decision.” #nojudgement Fed is best but this was MY goal and deep down I so badly wanted to reach it for the both of us...and the feeling of achieving it is SO rewarding. Goals are so important. Whatever yours are, write them down. Say them out loud. Don’t give up on them.
This photo captures the beauty behind all of our struggles. I will forever cherish these moments and this special bond with my sweet boy.
Our new arrivals are slowly trickling in! For the remainder of this week, we will have a limited price drop to celebrate our re-launch! FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS💕✨
It’s the last day of #worldbreastfeedingweek and I have ummed and aahed on whether to share this photo or not (mostly because I wish I didn’t look so miserable) ———————————————————————————
I had a horrible start to bf. I persevered through pain, the emotional rollercoaster and all the crap bits we were dealt with, it took us 5 months to finally crack it properly, shield-less just him and me and now I’m faced with THAT question... ”Are you STILL breastfeeding” I find myself defending my decision to carry on past 12 months “the world health organisation...” this “immune system...” that and in actual fact, does my decision to continue past 12 months really effect anyone else’s life
On top of all of the benefits for us both, it’s our little bit of calm through the chaos, our comfort during the tears and our secret little moment in the darkness of night.
We will continue until we decide we are done with our journey and that my friends is that.
🌹 ♥️ Amy was happy to do this. She looks super peaceful here 😮
