My twins boys turned three one month ago and I’ve been trying to get them into big boy beds for awhile now. I haven’t been able to pull the trigger on buying anything though because they’re my babies!!! And somehow prolonging the crib stage meant I was keeping them my babies for just a tiny bit longer. It oddly calmed my troubled mama heart!
Dorel Living reached out to me a couple weeks ago though, and challenged me to makeover their room in just two weeks using their Brady Bed found on Amazon. I knew this was the push I needed to just get it done. I made a mood board that night that helped me get an idea for what colors and products I was envisioning for the space and then I ordered everything the next day. Time was not on my side here so I couldn’t stew on different ideas and just had to run with my gut!
Hey guys!! I’m so excited to be partnering with Popsicle today and sharing some of our family’s very favorite summer snacks and activities to do at home with the kids. You guys know I’ve got a lot of little ones running around and it’s not always so easy to leave the house. We’ve set up some fun things in our yard that keep the tiny humans happy and entertained and so far, it’s been an awesome summer.
What’s up, loves?! I hope you guys had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I wanted to share something that’s been on my heart lately, a question that I’m asked a lot and not always entirely sure how to answer. How are you such a happy mom? It makes me feel a little bit weird because I’m not always a happy mom. And I’ll admit, there’s a little bit of guilt when I get that comment! My instagram feed and stories are just a piece of my life, and often times my highlight real. We are all moms though, trying to get through this crazy life in one piece. Despite what it looks like, we’ve all got a messy house and piles and piles of laundry. I’ve got the dirtiest floors you’ve ever seen right now with more food on them than in my kids’ bellies! I’ve got two insane toddlers, one creative little dreamer that’s harder than all the others combined, and a sweet 8 year old who is taking up so much time right now!
Life can be full. But it’s full for all of us!
So what is it that makes a happy mom? If I think about it, there are a few habits I’ve made over the years that have really helped me chill out and enjoy the ride. By no means am I even slightly implying that I’m a perfect mom. Motherhood is the biggest challenge and there is so much I feel I’m failing miserably at, but being happy is luckily not one of them. Here are some things that have helped me learn to be happy through the chaos and challenges of it all!
