  • Me when he goes off on his first date 😂 “I’ll just be waiting here, right next to you, watching, I’m here if you need me...I’m all dressed and ready to go...come back soon... byeeeee” (he’s cooler than me already) #boymom

  • Clingy Toddler Time👧.
.
Alright moms, how long does the clingy stage last? Let me start by saying it’s not bothering me that Cora wants only me or doesn’t want me to work or anything like that. It’s just that she’s getting so upset when I have to go to work and it’s breaking my heart. I wish I could stay home with her but that’s just not our reality right now. How do I help her get past this clinginess? Or do I just keep going normal & let it pass with time?.
.
Help me😢.

  • theseeeee two✨😅🙃... I posted a quote on my insta stories last night & it’s another one I can’t get out of my head. “Speak to your children
as if they are the wisest,
kindest, most beautiful and
magical humans on earth,
for what they believe is
what they will become”. How beautiful & powerful?! And also, so freaking hard. I want every word that comes out of my mouth to be magic for these kiddies... but half the time I’m focusing on not dropping f-bombs & raising my voice like a crazy, Portuguese lady😝 UGH. Motherhood. Again, such a trip✨

  • Today, Jett asked if we could "not talk so loud!" and y'all, that is nothing short of a miracle!

Last September, he didn't do so well on his hearing test during his annual checkup. In school, he was having a hard time hearing and failed a hearing test in the nurse's office at school. In February, when he had the flu, the doctor noticed he had a great deal of fluid behind his ears and that he had trouble hearing and understanding what they were saying. 
We got a referral for a pediatric audiologist, preparing to hear that he would have to have hearing aids or implants. It turns out that his inner ear hearing is just fine, but the fluid buildup behind his ears was blocking almost ALL of his hearing. It was like he was constantly under water.

This morning, we took him in to have tubes placed in both ears and his adenoids removed. Tonight, he told me that it was SO LOUD when he peed, and he couldn't get in the shower because it hurt his ears. We have been whispering with him all afternoon. A whole new world has opened up for him and his mind will be blown when he heads back to camp and hears how loud everything is there.

I'm so proud of how brave he is and how patient he has been with us yelling at him *literally constantly* for the last two years as it has gotten worse and worse. I am excited for him and Chris to be able to whisper in the deer stand this fall, instead of yelling at each other and startling the deer. I'm so glad this process is finally over and that hearing has been restored.

Many thanks to @texaschildrens for the excellent care and to our family and friends for praying for us and checking on us today. You were truly angels for us!

  • If there is one thing I have learned in the past few years, it’s to do what works best for you as a mother, for your child, and for your family. It’s truly freeing to not worry about what others think about the way you mother. We are all doing our best and that’s all that matters. My favorite time with this girl is giving her a sippy cup at night and still rocking her to sleep every night. She is my baby and I’m holding onto that for dear life because she may be our last baby.

  • Today was by far one of my most uncomfortable days yet 🤰 and of course the kids were completely out of sorts. This was the only peaceful moment we had all day.

I am not sure what was happening, but I am so glad they are finally sleeping like angels 🙌🏻♥️

  • Every time we've moved, we've taken so much with us. Random stuff built up over the years that doesn't really matter nor do we look at. 
This time, we are getting rid of it. And along with that is literally a weight lifted off my shoulders. A chapter closed. And it's a fresh of breath air. 
So if you're thinking about decluttering or minimalising, I highly recommend it. 
These two little muffins get to stay though 💕

  • “Mommy, a few more sleeps and I’ll be 4 years old.” FOUR!? It’s still hard to believe. When do we stop saying time flies?! To be honest, there are moments I ask myself what have I accomplished in the past four years... and then I see her. Her. Everything I am. Everything I wished for. Everything I hoped for and wanted. Her. 93% of the past 4 years I dedicated to her and I couldn’t have been more blessed.

So this is to all the stay at home mamas out there who have dedicated it all to our kids. The next time you wonder what you have accomplished, just look at your kids. Who and what they are, they owe to us.

Cheers!

  • I love the way our Littles seemingly know themselves so well.  They’re not restricted by fear, hesitant when facing obstacles, and they thrive when learning new things.  May we be more like them.

I’m so glad I made ‘You Were Made For This’ available for both Littles + Ladies.  It’s one of my favorite messages, and the one I wear most 💛 || thanks so much @miranda_mamabird_ for sharing this photo of your little man in his Golden Tee!

  • This has been my view for most of the day. Corn, corn, soybeans, and more corn. Beautiful and green, and barely any buildings.

Road tripping with three kids and a dog is quite a challenge, let me tell you! We’ve made about 100 stops (3/4 of them in the first two hours), listened to a toddler scream for 30 minutes, and had to buy (and exchange) two travel kennels for Penelope because she figured out how to get out of the first one in about ten minutes. 
I totally understand why my dad was always so grumpy in the car on road trips now. #becausekidsand100peestops

  • Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing my girls under the weather😢 It is the absolute worst! 💔Ever since I became a mama, I have used @hylandshealth for colds. I started using @hylandshealth when Serena was just a toddler and we still use it!  It’s so hard finding medicine for children younger than 4 so I was quite impressed when I saw how well this worked a few years ago🙌🏻Hyland’s products are safe, homeopathic medicines for all members of the family. I am so glad I am stocked up because Serena is about to go back to school and well, you mamas know what they will be bringing back home 🤢#germs #hylandsxtarget #Hylands

  • I am so excited to share that my TEDx Talk is now LIVE! Months of preparation and deep soul work led to this moment in front of a packed audience in May in beautiful Colorado Springs. .

In it I share my struggle as a new mom, and how by feeling like I wasn't doing or being enough, I was slowly falling into a dark pit of depression and despair. My saving grace came at my lowest point, where I made the decision to become more selfish with my self-care, and from there I've never looked back. I don't think it was a coincidence that the day I gave my speech, it was Mother's Day. Talk about Universal alignment. .

So if I have ever brought anything of value to you over the years, I would so appreciate it if you watched and shared my talk out to your network--who knows, someone in your life might be desperately needing to see it at just this time in their life. Thank you so much. All my love, Liz
