Four little angels 💗Five years old! 🎈 @marshallpartyofsix

Can I tell you a secret? I really sucked at breastfeeding. Whenever I would nurse I would get an overwhelming feeling of sadness.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣ I tried switching to a bottle and got mom shamed. So I stuck with nursing until it was socially “acceptable” for me to stop. I did this with all 4 of my kids. I shared my feelings with my husband and I just thought I was in the woes of postpartum depression. I thought my feelings made me ungrateful, that it made me a bad mom. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
It wasn’t until my 4th child that I confided in a friend and she told me she felt the same and that her doctor told her she was experiencing symptoms from DMER, and she suggested I talked to my doctor. Turns out I was experiencing the same thing. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I share this because I want you to know that your breastfeeding journey is your own and no one should make you feel less than the wonderful mother you are. Being able to nurse your child is so beautiful, but don’t feel ashamed if that’s something you can’t do. Breast isn’t always best. A happy baby is best. A happy mother is best! Plain and simple, FED IS BEST. It took me 4 kids and 13 years of motherhood to learn this truth. ❤️ If you are struggling with motherhood know that you are not alone. I’m here for you. You got this. #MadreHoodSiSePuede

"✨ Motherhood ✨⁣⠀
⠀
I feel like sometimes people misunderstand me when I say mothering is the hardest thing I’ve ever done.⠀
⠀
They think when I say “this is really hard”, I mean physically.. physical hard work.⠀
⠀
But that’s not what I mean. Although it is that too.⠀
⠀
I mean it’s emotionally and mentally exhausting.⠀
⠀
Because even when they are not trying to climb back inside me.. even when I’m not cleaning up.. cooking... reading...bathing... occupying...teaching, or talking.. I am listening.⠀
⠀
Listening to everything they’re saying & everything they’re doing.. on high alert 100% of the time.⠀
⠀
My brain doesn’t have down time.. no lunch break to re-gather myself. No steady sleep to rejuvenate..⠀
⠀
Motherhood is a whirlwind of broken sleep, cold meals, fast showers, and constant CONSTANT alertness.⠀
⠀
& none of this cares about anything else going on in life.. other relationships, self care, marriage, work.. we are expected to keep on top of those things ALSO.⠀
⠀
So when I say being a mother is hard.. this is what I mean.⠀
⠀
When I say motherhood exhausts me, overwhelms me & breaks me, this is what I mean.⠀
⠀
When I say motherhood awakens me, & restores me. This is what I mean.⠀
⠀
Hug a Mother. Love a mother. Cheers to all the mothers. I see you & I feel you 👯‍♀️⁣⠀
Ps.. this is what it’s like trying to get a pic with all three boys."⠀

My office view today.⁣
⁣
I know it's challenging to believe in today’s ways of earning an income.⁣
⁣
They can completely take you out of your comfort zone and have your heart racing. ⁣
⁣
However, they also allow you to create residual income - making money even while you're asleep. I know it all seems a bit unreal, scary, or that someone will judge you. ⁣
⁣
But what if in the process you change someone’s entire way of life? What if it’s your own, better yet, another mama who’s stuck? ⁣
⁣
That's what I'm looking for. I know there are women out there who NEED this because they have a certain lifestyle they want to live. A certain lifestyle they want for their children. Most of us don’t do this for fancy cars, we do this to put milk on the table and to pay for babseball practice, to have a debt-free Christmas, just to put gas in the car. ⁣
⁣
With no questions asked, knowing that YOU can provide it, if you work for it. ⁣
⁣
If you’re afraid of succeeding, don’t be. I was once there and I’m never looking back ⁣

When the kids occupy themselves and let me read 2 pages, it’s a win. Thank goodness for audible otherwise I’d never finish a book 🤣 #uninvitedbook

I am six years older than my younger brother so I didn't experience sibling rivalry as much. But since having 2 kids who are 2 years apart, I have come to notice that sibling rivalry is inevitable. However, on a brighter side I think the fights and bickering make their bonds stronger and promotes healthy relationship. 
Most times kids engage in these habits because they may: ✨need attention from you
✨ become the favored one
✨be bored ✨ understand their sibling better .
.
However, these fights help them learn important life skills such as: ✨ managing and resolving conflicts
✨ negotiation and compromise
✨ being assertive

Some of the ways I deal with this is by setting rules and ensuring that they stick to it and working them through resolving the conflict.
I am curious to know how you deal with your kids when they are fighting?

Missing the cold weather. My favorite seasons are fall & winter. But since living in CA. It hasn't felt like my normal fall.

I will choose you, even when 
You make me mad. My love for you 
Won’t fade simply because 
We are angry. I know we will 
Fight, and we will be frustrated, 
We will be human. Still, I will go to
Battle for you. Still, I will choose you. 
I will choose you. And keep 
Choosing you every single day .

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!⠀

@jeffroffmanphotography I struggled with which one to share first. You find magic in chaos and I adore you for sharing your talents. ⠀

He has the most beautiful, sweetest smile and I caught a few real ones in these photos which doesn’t happen often!

Do you ever look at your kids and think, “they’ll never be this little again,” and feel a sadness but also the blessing of being a witness to their life and growth? I’ve felt that a lot lately. And he’s also grown another half inch in the last month! 😭

Most days with him are hard in a lot of ways but he’s ours and we love him. 
There’s a lot of joy in the middle of the struggle if you’ll be open to it.

Been a while since I’ve shared a book review and figured I’d share a special one with y’all today bc 1 my momma wrote it, 2. It’s a true story about something that really happened to my family and 3. @lifetimemovies are currently filming the TV movie for it 🙌🏼 Talking a little about the book and a lot about some recent connections and healingthats happened in the process. 
Grab this book and maybe we can convince @kathietruitt to do a Virtual Book Club with us 🤔

🎄❄️Good morning babes!! Rise & shine!!☀️☕️I love this quote so much every time I see it, so I had to share today!! So often, we wait, rather impatiently for doors to open, for good things to come!! We as a society want things fast, at our door, with the single touch of a button! We sometimes fail to realize hard work makes things possible, priorities have to be made to live a joyful life! So when those doors you’ve been praying for finally open, sometimes we’re too busy to notice!! Take time to see the doors crack open, rest, see the beauty around you. Take a deep breath. You don’t want to miss your prayers being answered!! That new job, big move, benign test results, mending a marriage or broken relationships, diving into a new creative business! Keep those feet moving, one in front of the other, put your heart & soul into everything you do, and spread kindness & love!! 💗Make today beautiful sweet friends!! 💕👯‍♀️🎄❄️

Today max ate spaghetti for breakfast and Fox chose pizza .
.
.
They asked to wear crocs to “school” (it’s lightly snowing outside) and I’m not sure if I am going to win this battle. .
.
And max currently has 2 shirts on and a pair of shorts covered by pajama pants. .
.
And after I drop them off, I am going to get my TSA pre-check....in my pajamas because I forgot to change. .
.
I forgot because I spent a lot of time trying to find the mysterious smell that I thought was dog poop in my house, turns out it was my babies. .
.
HAPPY THURSDAY ✌🏼

Argggh, been sitting on this one for a bit but so happy to finally make our pinny dress in the stained glass print available to you!! Beautiful dress in a soft, vibrant fabric. Hannah had so much fun playing and running around while looking super stylish. Perfect dress to transition from play to party and will make a one of a kind Christmas gift!

My piano is currently being overrun by these paper bag snowflakes for the vendor show I’m in this weekend and I’m not mad about it. 😍❄️ I love the whimsy feel they give. Are you all about colour during the holiday season or do you like to keep it neutral? I like a mix of both in my home!

If this doesn’t spark joy I’m not sure what will ✨🎅🏼

If this doesn’t spark joy I’m not sure what will ✨🎅🏼

A little quote for today. 😊⁠
⁠
✨ “Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. It is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace that is right for each individual child. Earlier is not better”⁠
― Magda Gerber ⁠
⁠
📚 Magda Gerber worked under the pediatrician Dr. Emmi Pikler in an orphanage known as Lóczy in Budapest. Most of Pikler's ideas were brought into the English-speaking world by Gerber and from there, what is know as respectful parenting came to be.⁠💖⁠
⁠
👩‍⚕️ It was Dr. Emmi Pikler who designed the climbing triangle that has her name, she used it with babies and young toddlers to give them a way to get the movement their body expressed and allow their gross motor skills to develop. 👶 Most of these children spent a lot of time indoors.⁠
⁠
🐾 In a nutshell, Dr.Pikler understood that children who got to climb and crawl learned to use their bodies much better and they developed a stronger sense of confidence, caution, and agency. 🧠 💪😁⁠
⁠
🌈We are talking about babies and toddlers here, but this is true for older children as well. 🐣 That's why designing a Pikler triangle that could be used by 5yo or even 7yo was a very important objective for us and a turning point for Wiwiurka. 🤯⁠
⁠
🙌 Our Pikler Triangles are available in 3 different sizes for different age-ranges. 😃⁠

.
If you missed it, this year I want to hear from YOU — instead of giving you *my* best gift ideas, I hope you'll share yours. We can collect a ton of brilliant gift ideas from this tribe of boymoms and help each other out. 👊🏼
