Those magical long locks though 🙌🏻 We all know how aggravating hair loss/regrowth etc. can be, right!? Postpartum hair is something that they do not prepare you for. Bald spots, hair falling out, and then out of nowhere you get these random regrowth spots and sideburn wings that could legit make you fly. I’ve started to combat this with a hair serum that smells oh-so amazing! The way my hair feels is simply magical and it looks healthier than it ever has. . . ✨15 Rosemary ✨15 Lavender ✨15 Cedarwood ✨+5 Blue Tansy (if you can splurge, especially if you’re blonde!) . . Fill with FCO or Jojoba oil. You can also make a spray instead, fill with distilled water and a splash or two of NON SCENTED witch hazel. I apply this as a hair mask the night before I’m going to wash my hair. I also take a little and run through the ends of my hair after styling! So dreamy!!!! . . . . #essentialoils #younglivingessentialoils #oilymom #oilymama #essentialoilsrock #oilymomma #youngliving #literalmomgoals #joyfulmamas #legitmomstyle #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodinstyle #momtographer #momliferocks #dailymotherhood #unitedmotherhood #slowmotherhood #bloggermom #momgoals #modernmom #momcrushmonday #holdthemoments #honestparenting #momsquad #momstyle #motherhustler #motherhoodrising #momsoninstagram #goldendropsociety #yleo

The era of Zelda and Alfred is coming to an end. Super bittersweet for me, I am so excited to meet our new little one, but I want more time with these two!

*HONEST PARENTING POST* As cute as this photo is of Roo at the farm, so far today has been HARD! On and off tears and tantrums mixed in with refusing food, sleep and everything else I try to offer him! Thank goodness for wonderful friends who sacrifice their peaceful cake eating to play with your child whilst their child sleeps and you try not to cry into your cake 🙈 @craftly Kim, you’re one in a million - we love you! Roo is the little love of my life - he’s amazing! He’s so clever and smiley and loving - but he also gets frustrated when he can’t tell you what he wants! Im learning a new kind of patience and trying not to get over stressed when we have days like this! Hoping he wakes up feeling much more like his happy self 💛 #rooroojames #honestparenting #sendhelpandcoffee

"What are we having for dinner" is always asked by each child at least once. My answer varies daily. Their suspicion remains. "A burger? A real burger?" "Yes. It's real. I'm not serving you imagination" "No, but a shop burger?" "No, I made it" "With meat?" "No. We don't eat meat at the moment" "So... From what?" The honest answer is chickpeas, oats, hummus, sundried tomatoes, lemon, capers, and herbs The honest answer is best avoided with children "Oh you know. Stuff. I'm sure you'll love it". (I'm not. I expect tears) But. No tears. One child loved it. Two children ate it with some enjoyment and one suffered through it admirably. A definite success then. And yes I consider no crying a success. . . . #dinner #glutenfree #dairyfree #refinedsugarfree #vegetarian #vegan #foodporn #healthy #familymeals #burger #veganburger #chickpeas #parentingtheshitoutoflife #honestparenting #notears #plantbased #vegansofig #treatyoself

On nights my husband and I both finish work late, we sometimes go to a fast food restaurant with a play area. I remember the first time we took Madi for a fast food dinner with play area that was slightly dirty. I not only worried about the nutritional content of the food, but also the “germs” in the play-area. I was able to stop worrying about the nutritional content of the food quickly when I realized that we rarely eat fast food and that “treat nights” are fine in moderation. A study published in 2014 in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology was able to put my mind at ease about Madi getting exposed to the “germs” at play areas. This study suggested that children with the highest exposure to specific allergens and bacteria during their first year were the least likely to have recurrent wheeze and allergies. As a physician, I have seen that many infants and toddlers who attend daycare/play areas frequently get upper respiratory tract infections. What I gleaned from my own personal experience as a physician (and mom!) and this study is that exposure to “germs” in the short term may result in lots of colds, but in the long run, kids may end up hardier and less likely to have allergies. Knowing that, I take Madi to lots of different play areas and try not to panic when she licks something or puts something in her mouth. What are you thoughts on fast-food and infrequently sanitized play-areas? . . . . . #momlife #toddler #toddlermom #toddlerstuggles mommylife #momfriends #momgoals #toddlermom #newmommy #firsttimemommy #momquestions #mommytobe #momstruggles #clickinmoms #mommyandme #momtogs #dailyparenting #honestparenting #momblogger #ig_motherhood #childhoodunplugged #mompreneur #yeg #yegmoms #yegmom #yeglife #fastfood #mcdonalds #toddlermeals

If there's a bunny to be found, Bob will find it. We had our first go at Maurice and Friends, which happened to be a special spring event session which took us all by surprise. It would seem that if there's a puppet, music and lights, though, our Little Bob isn't phased by anything ... Oh and a bunny. The upstairs of the Viking in West Kirby was transformed by the lovely Barbara into what I can only assume is the inner-workings of Bob's head. Half hoping next week is a slightly less mad affair, but Bob thought it was amazing, and is covered in paint and glitter as if to defiantly prove her point.

Good morning from this little bed crasher 😴 🌿 6 months later and this is how our transition to a toddler bed is going🙄. She wakes almost every morning around 3am and quietly climbs into our bed with her blanky and nestles herself between us. Around that time I’m either in deep sleep or just too tired to take her back to her room. As much as I love waking up to her beautiful face in the morning this girl sleeps like a wild animal. Most nights dad is the one to take her back to her room when he can no longer handle the ninja movements in bed🤸🏽‍♀️ 😂. We were consistent in the beginning, taking her back to her room every night. I guess she figured out 3 am was a better time to sneak in.🤔 🌿 Do your little ones end up in your bed at night ?

Every 👏🏽 single 👏🏽 morning 👏🏽 trying to get the kids dressed and out the door for pre-school.

These little books are bringing the sweetest moments. Ainsley starts by reading hers out loud and then I read my similar (but a little deeper) adult version. We have only done this together for three days, but it was the BEST to see her run downstairs and ask if I had read my devotional yet so we could do it together. (Linked the books in my stories - just $15 for BOTH!)

D'un pas décidé 🐤🐤🐤

This is Eliana, at a similar age to Annabelle. I love reminiscing all the sweet times with my girls. This motherhood gig can be tough, but what a precious job it is. Watching them grow & learn is so beautiful & rewarding. If you’re in the trenches of motherhood, I want to encourage you that you’re doing well and your kids are so blessed to have you. I want to shout out to some amazing mamas on here, and I’d encourage you to tag your mama friends too. Let’s not compare, but lift one another up. @_emma_ashleigh @katie_e_jones @katiejoy__ @reneereisinger #mumgang #mumssupportingmums #mamablog #womensupportingwomen #girlmum #princesselianagrace #mylittletraveltribe

When we went to @thewildlifetrusts Low Barns over the weekend we found a sandy bank at the riverside which Reuben was VERY pleased to see. As if he was at the beach he sat in it, rolled in it and threw sand everywhere, but unlike the beach, this sand was filthy gross and Reuben looked like Stig of the Dump by the end of the day. I’d say I’m getting better at embracing toddler filth because cleaning up and washing a few manky clothes are worth it if the little man’s having the time of his life. 😊

🔈Sound on 🔈She hated bath time until this. Now I can’t get her out! 🙌🏼 Afterwards I lay the blocks out individually under the sun to dry when finished, then scoop them up and put them back in the bin. Problem solved!

Confession. I literally set a task on my phone last night (I'm a list person), for today, to soak these boys up and enjoy - crazy right?! Even though we are together pretty much 24/7 sometimes I feel like I might be taking it for granted. Maybe it's because I've noticed how much they've grown up lately who knows, but it just seems to be going way too fast.

My dark circles have dark circles. ⁣ ⁣ I swear I’ve been sleep deprived since my oldest was conceived- so over 8 years. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve literally gone to the store before and had complete strangers ask me if I was ok. And tell me I look tired. ⁣ ⁣ God KAREN, I get it, I’m TIRED AF and look it. ⁣ ⁣ On the days I don’t feel like reassuring a random that I’m ok in the bread aisle, my white concealer hides the exhaustion. I like to think it’s how I would look if I got to go on vacation for a week and just sleep.

#tb to Margo’s first trip abroad. Lucky little lady went to NY at just 4 months...it was a great trip but definitely a little different (and a lot less relaxing 😂) to what we’re used to! Looking forward to many more adventures with our favourite little travel buddy 😍

This past weekend we went to Manatee Lagoon and only saw ONE manatee. • My son: “mommy, where manatees go?” • Me: “oh, bubs, they went out for brunch.” • My daughter: “well, when are they coming back?” • My husband: “November.” • So, apparently Manatee season is from November to March—I may have read this. • I may have thought, “it’s only sorta like 30-days—no biggie.” It was a biggie! • But, a brunch till November? Sign-me-up! • #momfail#motherhood #honestmotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhoodinspired #momlife

Finding it hard to ground yourself, calm your mind, or even fall asleep - try this soothing date milkshake🥛. Takes 5 mins to make, it’s our modern day take on golden milk😋. Great for kids and the whole family👧👦🏻. 🌱Pour one cup of almond milk ( or any other milk) in a pot and simmer over medium heat. Add a 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric, cinnamon and vanilla extract and one pitted date. Let it simmer for five mins and blend in a nutribullet. Drink immediately while it’s warm and frothy and tell me you don’t feel so much calmer 😘 #modernayurveda #selfcare #nighttimeroutine #honestparenting #instamoms #goldenmilk #reducestressnaturally #dates #whatveganseat #plantbased #veganrecipes #nycfoodie #veganfoodshare #vegano #healthyfoodshare #feedfeedvegan #healthyvegan #plantpower #veganfoodies #vegano #ayurvediccooking #holisticliving #parentingblogger #everydaytribe

I suspect this is what my mum was thinking when she sent me along, in Grade 4, to get a spiral perm.⠀ ⠀ I’ll just let you finish laughing about that...⠀ ⠀ A burnt scalp and 3 months of RIDICULOUS looking hair later, I guess I’ve had a good story to share for the last 30 years... And no, photos of this horrific episode of my childhood will not see the light of current day.⠀ ⠀ I can only hope to bestow such well-intentioned, kind-hearted, bad decisions upon my gorgeous sons, so that they too have an emotional suitcase brimming with great tales 🙄.⠀ ⠀ Any bad choices you’d like to share? I could do with a laugh...⠀ ⠀ @katie_illustrated

Love love love spending so much time outdoors now she’s walking. Looking forward to a really fun summer this year ☀️☀️☀️☀️

Have you heard of The Period of PURPLE Crying? PURPLE is an acronym to help new mamas understand the normal developmental phase where babies cry for long periods of time and are difficult to soothe. For years this was referred to as “Colic” and often medicated but recently we have come to learn that this is a normal phase babies go through! Here is what the acronym stands for: ✨P eak of crying. Baby is wailing a lot. The most crying may happen in baby’s second month, with less crying in months three to five. ✨U nexpected. There’s no rhyme or reason as to why baby starts and stops crying. ✨R esists soothing. Rocking, singing, bouncing, swaying—you may not be able to do anything—we repeat, anything—to help soothe baby and ease the sobbing. ✨P ain-like face. Baby may appear to be in pain when crying, even when he’s not. ✨L ong lasting. The crying can seem never ending. In fact, baby may cry for five hours a day or more. ✨E vening. The late afternoon and evening may be when baby cries the most. Even with the knowledge that this is all normal, it is never easy to handle a screaming baby. This is a time when new mamas need lots of support. The more help they can have soothing baby (usually in those evening witching hours!) and emotional support the easier this period will be.

P A R E N T S . It’s days like these, following a long Bank holiday weekend when daddy is back to long hours at work and I’m left feeling, well, overwhelmed. It’s just me and our little toddler. Which don’t get me wrong, I am extremely grateful that I have the chance to stay home while Noah is so little, I treasure every single moment with him. 💙 However, opposing these feelings of love and appreciation are frustration, sometimes isolation and exhaustion. It’s tough. Parenthood met me and Ryan young, we wouldn’t change it for the world, of course not, but that doesn’t take the away the that it is tough at times. . I’ve been in this mood & I came across @mothering_it stories and @mamas_little_squares supporting story and it gave me such comfort hearing their words. Reminding me that each and every single mother, father, parent have similar yet different circumstances. It’s okay to struggle and I am not alone in this. So thank you 💛✨ • • • • • • • • #wednesdaywords #wednesdaywisdom #happywednesday #happyhumpday #mumssupportingmums #dailyparenting #acupofmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #mummylife #sahmlife #sahm #womenempowerment #youarenotalone #motherhoodrising #motherhoodinspired #instamum #instamummy #mumblogger #mummyblogger #familyblogger #familylife #familyofthree #youngparents #workingdad #mrandmrstobe #fiance #mumsofinstagram #littlefamily #honestparenting

A little while back I mentioned that I’d booked in to see my Doctor and chat about suspected PND. My appointment came, and so did my cyst. I never ended up discussing my mental health, the cyst became the priority. I haven’t re-booked. I started to think I didn’t need to. Then it came. The empty feeling. The irritation every time one of the kids needed me. The numbness. I think I do need that appointment after all. #motherhoodunplugged #dailyparenting #teammotherly #uniteinmotherhood #honestparenting #itsgoodtotalk #mentalhealthmatters #itsokaynottobeokay #postnatal #reallifeinstagram #lifecloseup #motherhooduncovered #pnd #motherhoodunplugged #pndawareness #youcantpourfromanemptycup #mumguilt #breastfeeding #pbuk #mama_pals #postpartumdays #snaphappybritmums

Who’s missing the amazing weather we had over Easter? To be fair we were lucky, it is still only April after all. We made the most of it by going out loads of places, some National Trust properties, exploring woodlands and river sides and walking up into the Dales where it was just us and sheep. It’s been so good. Roll on summer! ☀️

Happy Wednesday! It’s a jobs day here for me today because I’ve still got a tonne of sorting to do after the Easter holidays.

Our sweet girl... 20 weeks old 💘

L A T E W A L K S 🍃 I love this time of year when it's perfect to get out for an early evening walk. Where it's still light enough for a walk down the river after tea. I find it breaks up the day a little bit and it's such a nice time to get out. It can be very calming and therapeutic, burning off energy before bed and clearing your mind from the chaos of the day. I can feel the winter blues blowing away and the sunshine slowly lifting my head. Does anyone else feel their mood change with the weather sometimes?

My poor boy was up all night being sick last night 🤮 after only his first morning back at nursery yesterday! Today he has a temperature and he is a little bit weepish too which is unlike Kory but at least he hasn’t been sick since. He doesn’t have much appetite but he is drinking plenty so I’m thinking he’s just picked up a bit of a bug perhaps. Nothing that I don’t think a bit of calpol and plenty of mummy cuddles can’t help make better though! Which is just as well really because he doesn’t want to do anything other than lay on the couch with his mummy today... I hope you are feeling better very soon Kory, I hate seeing you under the weather but I am loving all of these extra snugs I am getting from you! The only positive about your child being sick - the extra mummy cuddles! ❤️

This lasted all of two minutes. I don’t think anyone in our house (apart from @mfphillips1982 ) is capable of having a lie in 💤

DO YOUR KIDS COOK? Like, cook-cook in a way that actually *helps*? ⁣ I try to teach mine, but honestly, even with some skill under their belts, they don't help much with the weight of feeding my family night after night. The 9yo just wants to bake (because sugar + sprinkles), and the 12yo isn't that interested. At this point, I feel like I'm just laying groundwork for when he's on his own or when he gets older and we need him to fend for himself some nights. ⁣ ⁣ But despite these efforts—which take, uh, EFFORT and time—I, alone, carry the responsibility of feeding my family except for when I ask for help every now and again. And this week on @didntijustfeedyou, @meghan_splawn and I talk about how that feels. ⁣ ⁣ Meghan and I are in different seasons of motherhood and, honestly, have different goals, but it doesn't matter. ⁣ ⁣ 💥👉 Because if you're part of a family that eats, someone's feeding y'all. And unless the duties are truly split, which statistics show isn't all that common, then you should listen to this episode. 💥👈 ⁣ Click --> @didntijustfeed you and then the link in bio for "The Invisible Work of Feeding a Family"⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #familydinner #mealprep #mealplanning #familymeals #feedingkids #feedingmyfamily #cookingforkids #cookingformyfamily #whatsfordinner #parentingpodcast #podcastforparents #foodpodcast #dinner #momlife #momslife #dinnertime #didntijustfeedyou #kidsfood #kidsfoodideas #momswhocook #honestmotherhood #honestmom #myhonestmotherhood #realmomlife #realmotherhood #realmom
