#motherhoodunplugged

The last few days, well weeks now have been a bit crazy! I thought back to school would settle things but instead we've got the extra tired and crankiness which has left me pulling my hair out saying 𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗺𝗲 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗻𝗼 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗹𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝗲! I've got Bossy at my legs asking for snacks and to be picked up and carried and if I can't she will continue to kick and hit and climb the furniture and just wreak general havoc until I finish cooking or cleaning or sending the email! Waffle pretty much also a toddler doing the same thing (😂), Sienna has hormones going left right and centre and goes from 'you're my best friend always mum' to 'dont even look at me your face makes me so angry!' in about 3 seconds! Poor Troop had his cone on for three weeks and needed medication twice a day, his wound cleaned and dressed multiple times a day as well and guess who was lucky enough to do that?! It me! Poor Steve is bed bound again which I don't know if that makes him lucky or worse off because he's probably been the one who needs my attention and help most and has been the last one to get it! I mean how many directions can you be pulled in before you explode? Well give me another day and I'll tell you 🤷🏼‍♀️ Anxiety is crazy high levels (we have so much going on behind the scenes that doesn't even make it on here) so I'm reaching out - once again for your coping mechanisms! How on earth do you parents with more kids do it? Hoooow?? You are the real super heroes in my eyes! I'm hoping that some planting and time out in the garden, grounding, will help this afternoon. Help or hinder I don't know yet! If you see me with a suitcase walking (running) down the street you'll know if didn't work 😂😂 . . . . . . . . . #rawmumblog #siennaannica #bostonastrid #raisingqueens #momlife #momsofig #momsofinstagram #mumlife #reallife #parenthood #igdaily #igers #motherhood #honestmotherhood #honestparenting #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhoodunplugged #kidsofinstagram #mentalhealth #anxiety #pnd #womensmentalhealth #consciousparenting #coffeeislife #sendhelp #toddlersofinstagram #toddlertantrums #preteen

As a parent, I believe we are our childrens’ first and most important educator. That’s why I’m so passionate about equipping parents with tools to help them raise beautiful little human beings. ❤⁣ ⁣ Your child needs to learn everything from YOU! Their brains grow most rapidly between 0-5 years…it’s a pretty amazing time! 😮⁣ ⁣ But don’t forget kids don’t just learn through talking – they learn through doing, feeling, experiencing, play and exploration. 👐⁣ ⁣ Need some ideas for your little learner?

𝙲’𝚎𝚜𝚝 𝚚𝚞𝚘𝚒 𝚕𝚎 𝚙𝚒𝚛𝚎 𝚚𝚞𝚒 𝚙𝚘𝚞𝚛𝚛𝚊𝚒𝚝 𝚊𝚛𝚛𝚒𝚟𝚎𝚛? . Embarquer dans un nouveau projet, c’est souvent à la fois stimulant, excitant et so damn stressant right? RIGHT!. . La peur du jugement. La peur de l’inconnu. La peur de l’échec. La peur de perdre de l’argent. La peur du ridicule. La peur de s’afficher. La peur du changement. . La peur, toujours et encore la peur. #fuckfear🖕🏼 . Quand on vit dans la peur, on vit dans l’appréhension de « si » et de « peut-être » qui sont souvent le fruit de notre propre imagination. On prétend le pire sans réellement savoir et on passe à côté de notre vie et de ses opportunités qu’elle nous offre constamment. . « 𝘾’𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙦𝙪𝙤𝙞 𝙡𝙚 𝙥𝙞𝙧𝙚 𝙦𝙪𝙞 𝙥𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙩 𝙖𝙧𝙧𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙧? » . Maintenant chaque fois que je me retrouve devant une situation où la peur se fait sentir, c’est cette question que je me pose et généralement la réponse est souvent d’une banalité qui me fait sourire du coin de la bouche. . Alors laisse-moi te poser une question question bien directe 👉🏼 𝘾’𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙦𝙪𝙤𝙞 𝙡𝙚 𝙥𝙞𝙧𝙚 𝙦𝙪𝙞 𝙥𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙩 𝙖𝙧𝙧𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙨𝙞 𝙩𝙪 𝙚𝙢𝙗𝙖𝙧𝙦𝙪𝙖𝙞𝙨 𝙙𝙖𝙣𝙨 𝙢𝙤𝙣 𝙚́𝙦𝙪𝙞𝙥𝙚 𝙙𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙨? . Que ça ne fonctionne pas? Et est-ce que c’est si pire que ça? Genre REALLY? . De mon point de vue, c’est encore pire de vivre avec sentiment qui vient avec le « Et si ça avait fonctionné? » que de l’essayer et réaliser que ce n’est pas fait pour soi finalement. . Alors, 𝘾’𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙦𝙪𝙤𝙞 𝙡𝙚 𝙥𝙞𝙧𝙚 𝘽𝙖𝙙𝙖𝙨𝙨? . Écris-moi, don’t miss this! . ✌🏼 . Credit for today's 📸: @helene_collette

They are the reason I first started asking the question "is this safe?" They hands down made me pause before buying products at the store and wonder what might be in them. . I didnt have all the answers and I honestly thought those people who read ingredients and used oils were out there.... but then I started thinking "what if they're onto something" and that was enough for me. . I asked just enough questions to know I needed a starting point. A jumping off place for knowing I can stand for better for my family. Products that aren't filled with hormone disrupting chemicals determined to wreak havoc on their development. - nope. . If you've had that same feeling in your stomach when you grab that cleaner off the shelves, or that same question when you pick up your baby wash at the store, take a chance. You can demand ingredients that don't cause harm and im here when you are ready! . Young Living just made starting out a little easier for #momlife too by putting together the SWEETEST new starter kit!! Swipe to see. 👉👉 . Whats holding you back?

I asked for one thing for Mother's Day. A shelf to put my daily essential oils on. They used to end up all over our bathroom counter and just create a general mess 🤷🏻‍♀️ . I'm pretty impressed with this shelf. My husband is not a wood worker but I think he did a really good job on it ❤️ . What oil on this shelf do you think would be your favourite and why? My favourite is missing from the picture! Any idea what it is? 😁

We will forever be in the process of learning to love ourselves better. ⠀ If you notice resistance to this mantra, that may be showing you where more love is needed. Try repeating it everyday and notice how your response changes. ⠀ You deserve to fall in love with you, exactly as you are. ⠀ #mindfulmamamoment #mamamantra ⠀ ⠀

Blackness is not a costume. We deal with things on a daily basis that would probably make some of you suicidal if you had to endure it. We’re survivors and fighters. Now before the funky ass #alllivesmatter crowd gets in here, a few things: if you kept silent on brown kids in cages, Puerto Rico hurricane aftermath, and what’s been going on in Flint for the past several years, please have a stadium full of seats. If me saying #blacklivesmatter makes you uncomfortable, maybe you need to ask yourself why. “The truth will set you free, but first it’ll piss you off.” - Pharrell.

Do you wonder if you're doing a good job as a parent? Parenting is the hardest and most rewarding job there is. I listened to a speech from some famous leader and he was talking about what the next generation needs in terms of education. Guess what, it's not facts! Living in an information age, AI is going to get better and better. We can't compete with a computer in facts and knowledge but we can out do them through being human. 🤸‍♂️⛹️‍♀️🏄‍♀️Our children need to learn compassion, creativity, music, art, sports, and kindness. They need to learn humility, perseverance, and wisdom. Parents, we have the privilege of guiding our children in love today and hoping they get to live in a better tomorrow. The struggle is real, but don't give up. Here are some quotes to remind you how important you are. 💛 My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.– George Washington. I mean, I look at my dad. He was twenty when he started having a family, and he was always the coolest dad. He did everything for his kids, and he never made us feel like he was pressured. I know that it must be a great feeling to be a guy like that. –Adam Sandler. My mother was the making of me. She was so true, so sure of me; and I felt I had something to live for, someone I must not disappoint.– Thomas Edison. I get my sense of humor from my mom. There are so many quiet times you spend as a mother that aren’t glorified but are a foundation for your kids. No matter what, there was always a thick safety net under this trapeze.”– Tina Fey. Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love." – Stevie Wonder. #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #parentinglife #parenting #beintentional
