This morning she says to me “mom, I just love your sprinkles so much!” I could not figure out what she meant until she explained “your sprinkles! Like you and princess Anna have on your face!” She meant my freckles! 💔💔kind of makes up for all the poop I’ve cleaned up of hers this week.
I know you, feeling like you have to be that perfect mom that always sacrifices for her child, family, work, spouse, etc. You are constantly running yourself ragged and fall exhausted into bed each night. You mindlessly scroll through your phone at night and wonder why you feel even more depleted afterwards. I've been there before. I, like you, knew there had to be a better way. I knew there had to be a good mom, partner, employee, friend, etc. But I also knew that I wasn't super mom and honestly didn't want that pressure. I bet you really don't want to be super mom either. I also bet you're kind of sick of this competition that us moms seem to have on a daily basis of who is the busiest and most exhausted. When did that become the thing to talk about and brag about? I looked forward to being a mom my whole life, and for what, to complain about how exhausted I am on a daily basis?
I've been at the very bottom and slowly worked myself out of that hole. I've been depressed and burnt out and just plain miserable! There was a point in time when I wanted to run away and just completely start over. I felt like a complete failure as a mother and knew that me and my daughter needed better. It's so hard when you are in the middle of it to just get better though. I was blessed enough to have a good friend point me in the right direction. It took taking care of myself to become a better mom and a better woman. Slowly my life stabilized and has become better than ever before! Not to say that I still don't have low moments and times of sheer exhaustion! No one can cure that 😜 but I have realized that the quality of self care that I schedule in my life has a direct impact on how I am able to handle life.

Greta und @ruediger_jr_ #simson
😍 Ich kenn es noch von meinem Papa damals, als ich auf seiner Motocrossmaschine sitzen durfte. Nicht mal viel älter als Greta jetzt. Kennt ihr es auch, dass man ab und zu Parallelen zwischen seiner eigenen Kindheit und der Kindheit seines Kindes entdeckt? ✨ (Ja! Ich habe eine Hose auf dem Bild an! 😋) *Werbung, wegen Markennennung*
Wyatt can’t wait to join in on all the running around!
Do you know what I love most about being a mom of three? Watching them play TOGETHER, **effortlessly. Seriously! Play time without arguing, screaming, hitting, yelling, full on battles: that's what I love most about being a mom of three (boys, I might add 😂🤷🏼♀️) It's rare. Like SUPERRRR rare. Which makes times like these so memorable!
When I found @campcastleplaymats
a few weeks ago, I instantly fell in LOVE 😍♥️ I knew Hayley's play mats would make the boys so excited for play but, I had no idea just how thankful I would be to her for sending us one to try as a fam! The boys spent hours on their mat today as the rain completely lost its ish over our little town and I don't think I heard a single argument or had a crying kid because of another kid who "wasn't playing fair." The size of our new play mat is perfect for shared play with THREE and it's only the medium size!

🍦🍦🍦 SORVETERIA DA RIBEIRA 🍦🍦🍦
Qualquer lugar que eu lia sobre passeios em Salvador dizia: tem que ir. E agora sou mais uma a dizer: TEM QUE IR! 🤤🤤🤤. Fica pertinho da Basílica Nosso Senhor do Bonfim .
Eu nem sou super ligada em sorvete, mas sério, que sorvete bom!!!!! As kids foram do tradicional chocolate, eu de pistache, a sogra de manga, o sogro de tamarindo e o papai de tangerina e mangaba (o mais guloso 🤭, pediu 2 bolas). TODOS deliciosos. A quantidade de sabores te deixa confuso, e eu voltaria diversas vezes para provar mais e mais sabores!!!! #salvador #bahia #viagememfamilia #amopraiaesol #momblog #momblogger #ninaeluli #lulienina #amordeirmãos #maededois #ninaelulinabahia
Suns out bumps out, let’s just say this way the year I promised myself I would work hard to LOVE MY BODY! And by work hard I mean finally gain some muscle and tighten and tone my mom skin I’ve gained from my two baby’s. Well god had a different plan for me and I’m learning to embrace these hamburger buns and tiger marks more and more each day my body grows this human being! EMBRACE THE BEAUTY GOD ALLOWS US MOMS TO TAKE ON!
Going to the pool with toddlers requires 12 eyes per two kids... Am I right or am I right? Let me just hold your hands so I can be calm for 10 minutes! 🤣
Mommin ain’t easy y’all!

Well, well, well... Doctor’s table, we meet again. This little gal is fighting off her second ear infection in as many weeks. How many of you mamas have babies with tricky ears?

There are certain parts of my childhood that I could look back and think, "God, where were you?" I think part of His being there was in giving me the mom He did. ❤ Sometimes life and finding God in it is all about perspective and what you choose to focus on.
Arabella is always trying to hold LJ’s hand while they’re out walking and he’s not really too interested. But when he takes off on his own, she’s always behind him cheering him on. “Yay LJ! I’m so proud of you!” ❤️❤️❤️
So much love for these people ❤️
Husband Post/Pregnancy Update:
This man means everything to me. He has been my absolute life saver lately with everything I’ve been going through. I’m almost 24 weeks pregnant and I have been experiencing debilitating pregnancy arthritis pain. Every few days I am lucky to get a “good day”. But most days, I can’t get myself out of bed or walk because of the pain in my body. Matty has stayed home in place of other things he needs to get done to make sure I get a better start to the day on these “bad days”. He literally pulls me out of bed (with Isla’s help - she pulls on one of my fingers to help 😂 and then says “I did it”). He works so much and yet he still has made time to clean the house when I haven’t been able to because he knows that a clean house makes me feel much better. He comes home from work when he has a moment here and there just to check on me and help out. I don’t know what I’d be doing without you Matty. Thank you so much @mattpurcellofficial
for supporting me through this unexpectedly difficult season. It will all be worth it when we have another little baby soon. Im happy to say that today is a “good day”. What a relief! I’m interested to know if any other mama’s out there have experienced arthritis in their pregnancies. Comment below!

Hoje, andando pela rua, uma mulher que trabalha com caridade (tem muito isso por aqui) me abordou. Acabou puxando assunto e perguntou minha idade, disse não acreditar que eu tinha 31, q eu parecia uma adolescente 🧐🤣😍
Não me importa se ela estava sem óculos, era pirada ou tava zuando com a minha cara, ganhei o dia! 😆😘
A 45 minute walk that took us 2 and half hours with wild toddlers. ✌🏻
Fun summer moms are fun summer tired 😴😴😴
“I woke up like this”, ehhh don’t think so! The look on little Brayden’s face kills me! 🖤 Love our matching sets, especially with siblings wearing them!
Ladybug handling this summer morning.
meNINA de fé 🙏🏻🙌🏻❤️😜
Hoje foi dia de conhecer a Basílica Nosso Senhor do Bonfim. Estávamos desde cedo fora do hotel por conta do jogo do Brasil, então optamos por não visitar o acervo e o museu. Foi um passeio bem rápido. De qualquer forma vale a visita. É bem bacana ver a fé traduzida nas milhares de fitinhas coloridas amarradas e balançando ao vento para qualquer lado que você olha (desliza a tela para ver mais fotos). Nós também fizemos nossos pedidos e deixamos as nossas amarradinhas por lá 🙏🏻 #salvador #bahia #viagememfamilia #amopraiaesol #momblog #momblogger #ninaeluli #lulienina #amordeirmãos #maededois #ninaelulinabahia
You can't become a parent and not expect your life to change. Having a baby changes your life in many many ways, it's just the way it is, so you can't expect to carry on your life the way you did before having a baby, if you want to then don't have one! It's as simple as that. You chose this, you wanted it, so you have to make the sacrifices that come with it, parenting requires alot of time, effort and SACRIFICE. That is the biggest thing we have to be willing to make. 💙💟
We kicked off #friyay
with a morning visit to @bigsurfaz
to continue our summer fun with anything to keep us cool in triple digits! The verdict? A+! @bigsurfaz
offers fun for the entire family from babies to the grandparents because the pools are shallow and they have both big and small slides. Compared to Wet n Wild? Stay tuned for a blog post comparing the two (yes I promise I’m bringing the blog back for real! Baby is now 6 months so I can breath again!) If you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend, think about heading into to @bigsurfaz
& make sure you take advantage of the @groupon
deal! PS, @crocs
came out with my favorite pair of water sandals that are actually cute! Available on Amazon and they’ve been my saving grace at the water parks. Check out my stories for videos at the park today! #bigsurf #azwater #kidsofsummer
Everyone just assumes your physical & mental abilities get worse as you age.
Your ability to grasp complex emotions is highest when you are 50!

Bought a cool star light for Arthur..... he fell asleep (on the boob, not even looking at the lights) and I’ve been watching it for 25 mins 👀 #targetaudience #thisisamazing
Friday! 👗 Last time I wore this dress I was early in my pregnancy. There is even room in the dress! If it wasn’t for my chest I would be such a tiny size 😆 I’m about 129-131lbs now. Perfect for my height! A work in progress for sure.
This was one of Amy’s favorite days. Mine too in awhile 😝 (Look at Emily in the background. On a chair that could flip any minute. :/ Which we definitely don’t need. She bumps her head and falls all the time it’s crazy)
