I first discovered I had diastasis recti about 8 months after I had my second child. I had just finished nursing him, and was already back to my pre pregnancy weight, but noticed I still looked a few months pregnant. I figured I would be able to work off the belly fat through more strenuous workout, clean eating, and nutritional cleansing.Read More
Happy Friday, party people! We've got some crazy plans this weekend, like working on getting Lewis to take a bottle and probably watching the movie Sing 7 more times before Monday rolls around. It's a good life, you guys.
This week has been very routine and average in our neck of the woods, and I wouldn't have it any other way. The kids and I have been enjoying our slow mornings together at home, though we really are looking forward to the weather cooling off a tiny bit so we can play outside. But other than that, I feel like we're in a sweet spot right now with Pippa enjoying preschool, Teddy loving his afternoons home with mommy, Lewis continuing to be the world's happiest baby, and me savoring the long afternoon naps the boys are currently coordinating on. So much to be thankful for!Read More
If you were to poll a group of moms about what the toughest transition was for their family, I'm confident each women would give a different answer, or at least a different reasoning for their answer. Some find having their first baby to be the hardest, others struggle going from 1 to 2 kids, while still others maintain that having their third truly threw them for a loop. I think so much of this depends on your stage of life, the ages of your kids, and the temperament of each baby.Read More
Here we are, wrapping up our first full week of school. Can I just say I absolutely love the routine we're starting? I'm only teaching two afternoons a week, and I'm soaking in the joy of having nothing on the schedule on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Teaching Spanish on Tuesdays and Thursdays has been a blast, and just the break I need from my babies to get dressed up and join the adult world. After a crazier schedule last year and being pregnant while doing it, I'm waking up so happy at the ease of this school year. Well...as "easy" as life can be with a preschooler, toddler, and infant. Now I just need to get better at fitting housework in my day. I've been playing with my kids, working on my business and blog during nap time, and building outings into our day, and pretty much completely ignoring dishes and laundry. Así es la vida, right friends?Read More
When Justin and I first got married, I remember being surprised by how hard it was to adjust to living together. There were plenty of petty arguments about things like who would do the dishes or how to spend our money. After a few months and lots of communication, we began to hit our stride.Read More
