Quote from @megamomlife “Internet stranger: “I hope you aren’t making your older kids, raise your younger kids.” ➖ My older kids, help. They are learning real life skills. They will grow up and know how to live, and not just for THEMSELVES, but for GOD and OTHERS. They know how to give a baby small bite size pieces, they know you need to block the stairs so a crawling baby won’t fall down them. They know that their 4 year old sister needs to be reminded her oatmeal is hot before she takes a bite. They know to be quiet during nap times, how to help cook, how to help do laundry, pump gas and load a dishwasher. They BEG me to let them change a diaper. I’ve been offered cold hard cash by my 7 year old, if I will let him help give the baby a bath 😂 💕My older kids live for the joy they bring to someone by helping. My older kids are kids, they still enjoy things that all kids do! I am want my kids to grow up and know how to survive REAL life. You guys, as parents it’s our job to raise our kids. And while that might look so different for many of us, it doesn’t mean it’s wrong.”
Girl I couldn’t agree more!! This is spot on ❤️ (older photo of one of my bigs with one of my littles for emphasis, aren’t they #adorable ??
Stress and anxiety. Can anyone else relate? Whether it’s something short term that’s causing you anxiety or a more chronic issue, Adaptiv can help.
The Adaptiv roller contains diluted oil, perfect to carry around with you. This has an immediate effect on the limbic system which regulates emotion and behavior. This is a quick fix. I like to use it before big meetings.
The adaptiv oil smells wonderful in the diffuser and chills everyone around it out. Can you say nap time and thunderstorms?
The capsules are a longer release. This has an effect on regulating GABA and serotonin. This a slower, more steady relief for anxiety.
Seriously, this oil is the best. •

🙏🏽 MY PRAYER LAST YEAR... One of my prayers over the last year is for Drew’s health.
He was really struggling with his psoriasis.
His energy and motivation at home were lower than he wanted.
He was struggling to find a way to eat that brought him health and a healthy weight.
AND NOW.... I look at this picture of Drew and I feel so happy 😁! His psoriasis is healed.
He is at his healthy weight.
BUT MOST IMPORTANT...he has energy to run his businesses and MORE TO SPARE for our kids 💕. Does this ring true with you? What do you desire to shift in your life? What changes would improve your energy and your family’s quality of life?!

When they say it goes fast, it's truly not fair how accurate that is. With the countdown to his birthday beginning, I just can’t help but feel all the feelz. ⠀
JJ is the cutest thing I've ever seen.⠀
He looks at me & gives me flirty little smiles.⠀
He races all around the house.⠀
He chooses me over everyone.⠀
He gets giddy around his Dad all the time.⠀
He eats like a teenager.⠀
I just can't deal.⠀
I spent my 20s debating if I even wanted to have children. Now I have this monster and I hate how old I'm going to be for all the big events in his life! (I'm fully aware that most people have kids at the age I did.. but my mom was 18 when she had me, so, #perspective 🤷🏼♀️)⠀
I know I can't help him growing up, but I wish I could keep him little just a bit longer... even on the days I wish he’d grow up a little. 😂
SWIPE to see how grooowwwnnn he looks in the last one!
I’m certain I’m not the only one who feels these feels, right? 😜
Ever have those weeks that feel like they’re just out of your grasp? Yeah, I’m feeling it and it’s only Monday. I’m caught between embracing the natural flow of things and allowing life to take its course vs grabbing life by the horns and blazing a trail. Maybe I’ll just shoot for the moon and land somewhere among the stars, but realistically, if you need me I’ll either be napping or hustling hard✌🏻 Please don’t send help, my sanity can’t afford for either to be interrupted😆 #wahm

Are the clouds above your head, oh so heavy?
Bursting with showers of despair.
Do you struggle under more than you can carry?
Has life given more than you can bear?
Would you like to trade your failures in for victories?
Like, piles of ashes in for piles of gold.
Could you fall down like a child who is helpless? So HE can pick you up and make you whole.
He says “Come unto me, all who are weary, and I will give you rest. Bring what hurts, bring your scars, bring the load that you carry, and I will give you rest.”

🌿🍃🌱 It’s been a month since I started using these beautiful oils! I had absolutely NO idea what to do with them... but I was so excited to try & learn —— so far I’m loving them, especially diffusing in the morning when I need a bit of a mood booster! #notamorningperson Lavender, Orange & Frankincense are my favourite. Do you use oils? If so - which ones are your favs? 🌿🌱🍃

She is so special and I pray that she never questions that about herself. My wish for her is that she will always know her worth, sees the light in herself, and always lets it shine. 💛
