I've got a whole weekend of nothing major planned stretching out in front of me. Adventures in potty training maybe? A hike with screaming children? A Costco sized bottle of white wine? The possibilities make we want to sing Taylor Swift at the top of my lungs and get an actual bun on my In-N-Out burger! 🍔 What's on your agenda? Points if it involves cactus pictures and Eminem :) . . . #writeyouonmyheart #magicofchildhood #letthembelittle #littleandbrave #notonlymama #ohheymama #darlingweekend #momchella #motherhoodrising #nothingisordinary #motherhoodthroughinstagram #ig_motherhood #followfriday #mynameismama #thesincerestoryteller #humaneeffect #childhoodunplugged #thehappynow #teammotherly #scarymommy

You are magic. Lightning freed from the bottle in moments so charged with emotion I swear your energy could power a city. But at other times, you're my quiet after the rain. My contemplative soul. My art loving, builder who MAKES things happen. You like dance class and frogs (still!). You're falling in love with the possibilities of yourself and it's scary and fascinating and incredible to watch. You're more confident now than ever before and I'm so proud of you! And now you're 4! Happy birthday my sweet spunky love! Keep telling me all the things. Keep being beautiful you. . . . #birthday #nochella #momentslikethese #darlingmovement #darlingweekend #girlmom #milestone #4thbirthday #familyphotography #love #kristielisephotography
#tbt to when my baby girl was 18-months old. To when I could pick her clothes and bows. To when being here - her turning 4 in a few days - seemed so far away! ❤️ Mamas of difficult babies and challenging toddlers and separation anxiety prone kiddos IT GETS EASIER. I promise it does. Mamas with difficult histories, YOU CAN DO THIS. You CAN battle your demons AND be a good mom at the same time (Get help if you need to! You deserve it). You'll get there. YOU WILL. You'll find yourself in a sweet spot soon. You'll figure it out. How do I know? Because I'm here. 🌈 I’m here despite those days when I wondered if I was totally f*cking it all up. Those days when I wondered how I'd take care of myself AND this beautiful, complicated, difficult daughter of mine. How I'd protect her. How I'd navigate my anxiety and past and show up for motherhood. 🌸 But now I'm writing this. Today. Holding my breath and enjoying the deliciousness while it lasts! There are hard things to come - don't remind me - but right now life is good. And I'm grateful for how high we’ve climbed. I'm grateful that despite all of the challenges - and this is just a teeny tiny glimpse of the messy truth that is motherhood and life and parenting as a child abuse survivor - we're happy. We love one another. And we laugh every single day! So, I'll #throwitback for a minute but I'm not pining for the past. Onward, upward, and full steam ahead to celebrating 4-years of motherhood and life and Daphne! Your birthday is coming baby girl and the party starts NOW. . . . #littleandbrave #honestmotherhood #instamom #notjustmama #survivors #metoo #dailyparenting #girlmom #mytruth #momentslikethese #throwbackthursday
It's a good thing I didn't miss #nationalsiblingday because my kids only fought over a toy frog from The Dollar Store once this evening! Once, guys! That's definitely something worth celebrating. Oh and the fact that they'll always have each other. That's pretty nice too. . . . . . #internationalsiblingday #siblingsday #unitedinmotherhood #postthepeople #dearphotographer #honestmotherhood #motherhoodrising #brotherandsister #girlmom #boymom #kids #toddlersofig #instatoddler #instamom #momsofig #love #family #parentingdaily #dailyparenting #letthembelittle
I wanted to wrap myself in this flower frenzy and stay here forever. My nose literally tingles when I think about these delicious purple blossoms! Makes me realize I need a perfume like that. 🌸 So, tell me, what’s your perfect spring scent? 🍰Is it sweet like vanilla cake? 🌶 Spicy like the chili peppered rim on a margarita glass? Is it classic? Fresh and new? Tell me what you’re wearing so next time I’m at Nordies I can smell my way to the perfect spring day (even if it’s raining outside!) and maybe even bring it home with me. * Dress by @target . . . . #targetmademedoit #huntingtongardens #springbreak2018 #postthepeople #ohheymama #joyfulmamas #postthepeople #instamom #perfumes #tips #stylemepretty #writersfollowwriters #darlingmovement #ootd #dressoftheday #justmama #newscent #thesincerestoryteller #thehappynow #thepursuitofjoyproject #flowerpower #flower_daily

I love the way you punctuate your little half-sentences with giggles. The way you tell me about every spider in the house. The way you give hugs like they're special little gifts. Because they are. Every kiss and hug from you is a present I'll cherish forever. I want to remember you as you are right now - curious, messy, loud, sweet, affectionate, and unaffected by the world's expectations of what a boy should be. Being a boy mom is a big responsibility, but you make it easy! Happy 2nd Birthday Leif! You're a live wire of love and life! We adore you.
