  • I was wrong all along. ‘We can’t stay at home, the kids climb the walls by 10am’

I had a lightbulb moment today. It’s not them. It’s me.

The demanding beeping of the washing machine on its third load. EMPTY ME NOW. I WON’T LEAVE YOU ALONE UNTIL YOU DO. The glaring call of the half-shut laptop with its flagged emails unanswered, the pinging phone flashing in the corner of my eye. The half-tidied breakfast table, half unpacked online shop, the cooling coffee and my single mascara’d eye.

And the kids. And the questions. And the tussles over toys. And Peppa flippin Pig.

And everything feels like a tug of war on my attention. Beeping, shouting, moaning, flashing, whirring, crying, pawing, gnawing.

And then we go out. Bundle ourselves into a car that is packed as if we’re leaving for a week, not a few hours. And we drive away from 90% of the demands. And there’s noise. So much noise. So many voices. But just me and them to answer to and shuffle along, and make sure they don’t swipe the breakable items off the gift-shop shelves with their wild little limbs.

And I have to be single minded. To make sure they’re safe and their needs are met. And in a weird way, it’s more chaotic, but in another way, it’s more simple in my head. I’m not pulled in 10202 directions, just their direction. And it makes it kind of easier.

So maybe it isn’t them that climb the walls. Maybe it’s me, feeling like everything needs me and I’m giving everything a sliver. And sliver’s are hard to stomach when you’re yearning for a wedge.

It’s like cake. Who wants slivers when you can have a hearty wedge. I need to find ways to get more wedges in my life. Wedges of them. Of work. Of house. Of husband. Slivers make me feel empty, and guilty, and a bit sad and tired.

Hey 👋🏼 I’m Madeline!

What movies have your little ones loved that are in theaters right now? Is lion king too scary for a four year old? 🦁

  • I’m having a night away from the husband and kids tonight and am currently drinking some of this and dancing by myself to *NSYNC...true story 🤪
.
I’ve always been pretty good at dedicating time away from the kids so I can recharge and regroup. I’ve gotten way better at recognising when I need it and so has Sheldon, and on his suggestion here I am 🙌🏼
.
If you feel you need some time away, find a way to make it happen. Even if it’s just going to stay at your parents house for the night! I do it. A change in routine and surroundings can make a massive difference to your mental well being. .
But by all means, if you wanna go big, start planning a girls weekend away, because they’re even better for you! 👊💖

  • Mom burnout is real, and I wanted to take a moment to remind you that self care matters! This week I’ve been exhausted beyond belief, my anxiety has been at an all time high, I haven’t taken any time for myself, and I’ve put everyone’s needs before my own! 
We need to remember that our needs matter too. 
You should not feel guilty, and you must make it a priority to take time for youself. 
Go to that gym class, go for a walk, or even a stroll around target by yourself 😂. Do something for you. 
The @millennialmiss said a while ago - “did you show up today” and it struck a cord with me because there can be days where I don’t show up for myself!

  • 10 years ago. This weekend, Chris and I are celebrating 10 years of being on this crazy life journey together.❤ We've been reflecting on where we were 10 years ago and where we want to be in 10 years. Last night, we discovered that our girls will be in 8th, 9th and 11th grades in 10 years!😱 We decided not to dwell on the fact that we'll have 3 teenage girls in the house at that time. God help us!

But we did spend some time reflecting on the past. 10 years ago, we had quit our jobs and moved away from Boston. We had no idea where we would live. Neither of us had a job lined up. But we were young and naive and figured things would work out. Thanks to support from our family, we survived our first year of marriage without either of us working full-time.

Then we began to reflect how kids were so far from our thoughts 10 years ago. True as that may be, Chris and I had talked about kids for years prior to getting married. We were both on the fence, unsure if we wanted to have kids.

We had also briefly spoken about adoption before getting married. At a young age, I knew that I would probably have a family through adoption. There was no reason for me to know this, want thus, or think this. But I do believe in "God things," especially if we keep our hearts and minds open to anywhere God may lead. And apparently, that may lead to 3 kids overnight!

I'm so thankful for being with an amazing human being who wants to be on this crazy life journey with me. And thankful that he pushes me to be my best self. Life would not be the same without Chris.

This space is untouched. ⠀
It cannot be ripped away. ⠀
It cannot be trampled upon. ⠀
When the child is born, so is the mother. ⠀
It changes the very fabric of her DNA. ⠀
It makes her...her.⠀
From birth we are told who to be and what to be. ⠀
When the truth is, we already are who we are. ⠀
I love birth photography because of the women. ⠀
The mothers. ⠀
The carriers. ⠀
The life givers. ⠀
The sacrificial beings. ⠀
There is a space for every woman out there. This just happens to be the space that makes the most sense to me for my work.⠀
Not because of the precious babies. ⠀
But because of the resilience in the women.⠀
It can't be tamed. ⠀
It can't be threatened. ⠀
It only grows. ⠀
It's fruitful...the resilience."⠀

  • Працювати вдома🗓
⠀
Напевно, все ж таки працювати вдома мені зручніше ніж було б в офісі, але звісно в цьому є свої плюси та мінуси.
⠀
Явні переваги:
✔️можна не знімати піжаму, або зняти взагалі😅
✔️можна працювати в ліжку, в ванній або на дивані
✔️в перервах між роботою встигаю багато домашніх справ
✔️якщо діти застудилися і сидять вдома, мені не треба «прогулювати роботу»
⠀
Ну і недоліки:
✔️ненормований графік. Є величезна спокуса перенести роботу на вечір або ніч. І це для мене єдиний мінус роботи вдома, з яким після останньої відпустки я вирішила боротися і дозволяти собі більше відпочивати та приділяти час рідним🙌🏼
⠀
А як вам здається, зручніше працюю вати вдома або в офісі?

  • What you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN your body. 
Using essential oils for skincare, hair treatment, oral care, and other general hygiene purposes provides a safe, natural alternative to other common and synthetic hygienic products. Plus, each time you use an essential oil in your hygiene routine, you will have the added pleasure of enjoying the lovely aroma of the oil and any aromatic benefits it holds.🙌🏻🙌🏻

  • I couldn’t care less about super heroes. 
But he loves them. 
Before my son, I didn’t know who they were and how very many of them exist... But now I do, because he loves them. 
I’ve never read a comic book and I’m pretty sure Batman Begins is the only Batman movie I sat through before he came into the world... But he loves them. 
You see, I love him, so I am enthusiastic about what he is into- because I am showing him that what he cares about is important to me. 
Because he is important to me. 
So I wear all the masks. I play all the super hero games. We go on missions and we catch the bad guys all over the house. 
And when he’s into the next thing, I will be excited to listen all about it. And will participate eagerly. 
Because he’s my everything.

  • Ignoring the toys scattered on the floor, hoping the dust will blow itself off of the shelves and the lasagne will spontaneously cook ready for this evening.
•
•
•
Sometimes it's ok to sit back and say stuff it, today we're having cereal for lunch and watching movies all day. Because parenting isn't easy, being a mother isn't easy, sometimes it's ok to just not be ok. The pressure we put on ourselves to create and keep the perfect home, to make instaworthy meals for our families, to keep a business afloat, is just unachievable. At least some days. Take away the pressure, be kind to yourself, fill your own cup.
•
•
•
So today, while the small person naps, no housework shall happen, no emails shall be answered and lunch will be a very un-instagram bowl of cinnamon porridge with apples and raisins. And of course a cup of tea ☕

  • Homeschooling momma, Casey, has this to say about her #RheumatoidArthritis diagnosis.
.
"Who of my friends are struggling with autoimmune disorders? 🙋‍♀️
.
In April, I was blindsided with a diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis. After months of excruciating joint pain, blood tests showed my inflammation levels at almost 900 times the normal limit. Seriously, who has arthritis at the age of 35??! I eat good, I exercise, I work on lowering stress... What? I dove head first into research on the link between gut health and auto immune disorders.
.
The 2 pictures you see here are taken 3 months apart. You can literally see the inflammation in my face in the first one. Ya'll, not only have I been 90 days without a flareup, but taking measures to help my gut has cleared up an entire score of other issues as well. Gut health is so important!
