Sometimes I don’t always know how to juggle all the important things in my life . I can’t be the only one ? But it keeps me humble and close to my Savior - I always need His help to do life well and His grace to regroup when I’m not. This morning I’m thankful for a few quiet hours to get things done while my babies are safe & loved at school and for this incredible breakfast bowl. Thanks @selahteacafe 💕 and thanks to my boys’ teachers too because mommas need the help. #honestmom #momlife #thankful #workinghard #butineedjesus #ittakesavillage #quietandyummyfoodhelps

💜On this gorgeous sunny day we are delighted to share our Mother’s Day mini interview with Eliza Flynn @wabbitpie, PT and founder of @healthylivinglondon as she gives us an insight into the ‘wonderfully chaotic’ joy of motherhood . . What does being a mum mean to you? Agh, what a question! I could write an essay on this… I still have to pinch myself to believe it sometimes, I feel so very lucky to be a parent. It’s incredible, frustrating, terrifying, fun, exasperating, overwhelming, wonderfully chaotic… I feel like I have a split identity - as well as trying to hold onto ‘me’, I’m also looked upon as ‘mum’ by two little beings, which is an honour as well as a weighty responsibility. . . Did having children change you? Yes! I no longer recognise my body! Seriously speaking, I always thought that I could continue doing what I was doing and that children would fit around my life. Oh how wrong I was! I found it frustrating (and still do sometimes) when I’m trying to get things done and it just doesn’t happen because, well, little ones are about. I’ve changed my priorities and have learnt that when I’m with the kids, I’m 100% with them, rather than trying to do two things at once. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve still got hopes, dreams and ambitions, but they’re more likely to be worked on after the ferals have gone to bed. . . How do you find time to switch off / exercise / unwind? It wouldn’t be possible without our nanny and my supportive husband. He appreciates that I need time to do things which are just for me. It takes some juggling but at least once a week, I’ll get down to a DeRose Method class by Oxford Circus which really sorts my head out - it involves similar poses to yoga, as well as meditation, visualisation, breathing exercises and more. I’ve also started getting a group of mums to our local Park Run which feels fantastic - it’s not even an hour to ourselves but it leaves me feeling energised and like I’ve

“My feed is long, and full of terrors” . Prepare to be muted! 🤣🤣 You know the warm weather brings out the tootsies in full force 🤮  #shudder
Deserve. . Oh man! . Seems like a little innocent word, but to me... . It kept me stuck for YEARS! . That's right years! . I believed I wasn't deserving of an amazing life, amazing family, amazing husband, amazing career. You name it and it wasn't for me. Surely, I did something to deserve all the crap in my life. . But the truth was, I felt unworthy and undeserving of a great life and so on some level I sabotage myself. . I would constantly look for the problem or wait for something to go wrong or think "this is too good to be true." And sure enough Murphy would so up and the joy would soon disappear. At least until, I begin to receive and accept love. . First, I changed my inner dialogue with myself. My rule was- If I wouldn't say it to my best friend then I couldn't say it to myself. . Then, I started to lift myself up and read mantra and inspirational quotes. . After that, and this is one I still work on regularly- I accept compliments. Yup!! That's right, someone says something nice to me, I accept it. I receive it and feel it. I own it. It doesn't make me selfish, I have no right to judge what someone else thinks of me- I can just own it and appreciate it. And this, my friends has been a real game changer. Because now, when my husband says "I love you" or "You're beautiful" I actually believe him and needless to say our intimacy has grown deeper because of it. . So, love, I'm here to remind you that you are worthy, you are deserving, and you can have the life you want!! . That vision of what you're life could be, it's yours for a reason- reach out and grab it!!
“I wanna lose 10-20 pounds and look good in my bikini 👙” That is a goal I hear DAILY from ladies with health/fitness goals.  That goal is awesome, and I really hope that they achieve this goal.  The only thing with that goal is that when struggles arise and you are having a bad day and wanna binge eat, that goal of “losing weight” isn’t gonna be enough to get you through the hard days.  Trust me it just won’t.  You have to really DIG DEEP and find your WHY, WHY you want to lose weight, WHY you want to lead a healthy lifestyle. “ I want to lower my blood pressure, have good cholesterol levels, get off my meds, walk the stairs with out being out of breath, be able to sit in the floor with my kids, be alive and well to watch my kids grow up and have grand kids, beat the heart disease that’s in my family, feel good, and have more energy overall”  Those are some examples of WHY and that will pull you out of binge/stress eating.  We kick off DAY 1 next Monday and I want you to join me and start leading a healthy lifestyle. This is NOT a quick fix or some silly diet, this is a way of life FOREVER!! Tell me below what is your WHY for wanting a CHANGE, and leading a healthy life.
Is it easy to get 3 kids out the door for school, get my workout in and get out the door before work.... Not gonna lie some days I just want to lie in bed.  Doesn’t everyone feel that way sometimes? I can’t be the only one.. But this is about pushing through the hard stuff and take a moment for yourself.  I have to remind myself that life isn’t easy and you persevere if you want to accomplish anything.  It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you, if you allow it.  #stayathomemomlife  #autogramtags #thatmomlife  #momswhowork  #sahmproblems  #mompreneurlife  #workfromhomelife  #workingmomproblems  #motherhoodjourney  #mombosses  #workingmomma  #workingmomlife  #stayathomemom  #sahmlife  #stayathomemommy  #sahm  #boymomadventures  #wifelife  #momlife💕  #momsbelike  #momproblems  #honestmom  #realmom  #momquotes  #momminainteasy  #wfhm  #momprobs  #bossmom  #tiredasamother  #mommotivation
Shoutout to all of the mamas out there who don’t know what the heck they are doing—but doing everything to raise their babies the best they can.  I’m just winging it over here. The whole thing, maybe a little too much. There’s days where I feel like a really great mom, and days where I literally feel like my daughter is doomed and I’m failing in every way.  Our higher power who I call God so sweetly reminds me that He created Hadley knowing exactly what she needed, I could give her, what we as a family will give her. That gives me peace, and gives me hope.  All you mamas, I’m so proud of you. and YOU should be so proud of you. And if you’re having a hard day, week, month... keep planting, and crafting, living and knowing that all beautiful things take time.  And just keep sippin’ your coffee. ✌🏼

A smile is happiness you'll find right under your nose.  Loved this quote I came across the other day! It was a great reminder that happiness is something we choose 😁 I definitely want to teach my children to never let other people steal their joy in life and to keep their smiles shining bright, happy Tuesday friends😊
I look like I’m naked in public, but I’m not. Lol. 👅 Just wearing an off shoulder dress.

Often, the line between peace and sanity, hope and despair, giving a damn or not, is a great support system. It’s about building a community of friends and family to push you forward even when the journey gets tough. Because it will!.

Last night, I spent extra time dumping my feelings on paper. . Like most of you, I spend my day hustling from job to job, task to task, all while refereeing (and nursing hurt feelings) of little people. . And I feel like I spend most days hollering and losing my patience. And I don’t want to be that person. . This morning I woke up grateful. I usually do, and then the to-do list starts ( along with the morning drama), and we are well into another day. . But today I’m sticking to grateful. I’m going to keep it simple and see where the day takes me. . . Can I ask one question? Lordy, I hope I’m not alone. . Do you feel like you spend some days just running around crazy, breaking up fights, and hollering more than not 😬 . And if you don’t, how?? . #positivemood #findyourstrong #mytinytribe #littleandbrave . . . .  #letthembelittle #justmomlife #habitandhome #inbeautyandchaos #nothingisordinary #thisismotherhood #nontoxicliving #wellnessjourney #holdthemoments #honestmom #dailyparenting #our_everyday_moments #thepursuitofjoyproject #livethelittlethings #healthyhappylife #documentingmotherhood #createyourhappy #momentsofmine #liveinthenow #mybeautifulmess #littlestoriesofmylife #beingboss #positivelifestyle #wellpreneur #thehappynow
🤷🏼‍♀️ WHEN TO OFFER YOUR BABY WATER💦As each child is different, here are the key points to consider: _ -Breastmilk is 80% water so don’t worry too much when exclusively breastfeeding. _ -extra iron should be introduced around 6 months of age because this is when your baby’s iron stores begin to deplete and they won’t be getting much from Breastmilk anymore. Iron can be constipating so 💧water is complimentary at this point.  _ IN A NUTSHELL, OFFER A BOTTLE OF FILTERED WATER... - -when your child starts eating animal meats or other iron-fortified foods  _ -around 6months or upon starting solids _ -in hot weather  _ -if poops are starting to be more solid than mushy and hard to pass. A more obvious sign is “pellet poops” _ _🍼😫BUT MY BABY BITES THE BOTTLE AND DOESN’T DRINK IT!!!_ _ _totally fine and normal as baby’s are teething around this time too! Offering hydrating foods: 🍉watermelon, 🥑avocado, 🍌bananas, 🍈cantaloupe (to list a few)! If desperate, a clean cloth frozen with cold water: your baby will chew it and suck!  _ There could be a number of different reasons for poop changes, lack of energy, dry skin/scalp etc. 👆🏼Head to the link in my bio for your customized digital intake forms followed by a consult! • • • • • • • • • • #baby #babymom #newmom #momadvice #babynutritionist #prenatalnutritionist  #vancouvernutritionist #holisticnutritionist #vancouvermom #startingsolids #blw #yvrmom #firsttimemom  #babyfood #babyfoodideas #motherhood #thirdtrimester #postpartum #twoundertwo #honestmom #ohheymama #honestmotherhood #fourthtrimester #ig_motherhood #newborn #prenatal #thisismotherhood #tiredmom #momblogger #babyledweaning
Momlife - when you got shingles but your kids got a party that you don't want them to miss - yes I did drive them in my PJs because it's the only thing I can just about tolerate touching my skin atm 😫 luckily my friend took them in so I didn't spread the pox around and also so I didn't have to be out in public in my PJs #thankgodforgoodfriends 🙏  I'm on day 7 so far and I'll be honest it's pretty s***! The pain is really quite awful, but what is making me feel really low is not being able to do stuff with the kids. They are both so active and I feel bad for them that they aren't  doing as much as they are used to. My husband is fantastic but works long hours so in the week it's down to me mainly. So far I've either been pushing myself to try and do things with them and then feeling much worse after, or I haven't done stuff with them and then sit there crying because I feel so guilty. After a really low day yesterday I've decided there has to be a better way so I'm going to be brainstorming some new ideas for 'mom down' home activities - that are both quick to set up and require minimal movement from me. Wish me luck! #momdown #momprobs #momguilt #momanxiety #momlife #momsofinstagram #momssupportingmoms #momblogger #momblog #mom #bloglife #instamom #instadaily #momzone #birminghamblogger #brumblogger #birminghamlife #parentingblogger #parentinglife #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged ##honestmom #familyblogger #familyblog

1 month old - the first month is the toughest, the lack of sleep, getting breastfeeding going (if you have made the choice to breastfeeding), getting to know you kid.

Do anyone else’s children start waking early once the Spring Equinox has started? Every year without fail our wake ups get earlier just before the clocks go forward. It’s like they know what’s about to happen. Yesterday Corrado woke at 6.30am shouting to tell Seve and Aurelio he was awake. They both were already up reading! Although our children have always slept well, they have never been ones to sleep much past 7am. I know one day I’ll have trouble getting them all up at a reasonable hour! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #earlymorning #springequinox #twinboys #twins #identicaltwins #newborntwins

Look at those beautiful blue eyes 👀 Our little one is of the seaside with his nanny and grandad today 🏖 and I so wish I was going too but alas I need to go to work 😩 This morning he woke up in such a fun giggly mood, and while we were all getting dressed and we were having our normal morning chatter, he just looked up at me and said love you mama! 😍 my ovaries very nearly burst 💓💓
Well I’ve done it, 2 kids later and I’m back down to my pre-kid body weight finally!.... Just in time to do it all again 😂 (not pregnant FYI but I have a feeling I’ll eventually want a third) I have the biggest love hate relationship with my body - I just love processed sugar too much and have the biggest sweet tooth! Oh and coffee.. my saviour. I’ve found if I drag my arse to the gym atleast 3/4 times a week I can maintain my weight and feel good, even with a lot of cheat meals! so that’s what I try to do! Plus putting the kids in crèche for the hour helps my sanity so we all survive the day 🤗 . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Isn’t this just lovely? I have decided I will say this to my daughter first thing tomorrow morning. I will say this (well a version of it) to my husband later on. I will say this to my gorgeous friends tomorrow. And maybe just maybe I’ll try saying it to myself. . Who could you say these beautiful words to?
Amanda and I try to show the positive sides of our life, but sometimes showing our weaknesses is important, too.  You don’t always know that we’ve yelled “Clark, smile!” one hundred times before a picture.  Or, that minutes before a picture, Amanda and I were bickering.  Let’s get real... I have been struggling with anxiety over the past few days.  I didn’t realize how much fear I would have related to protecting my family.  As I made coffee this morning, I had to take half an anxiety pill to try and cope with the crippling fear that I would not have a family tonight, for fear of them falling over the edge. Standing on a canyon over a mile deep has stirred irrational thoughts that I have tried to keep suppressed, unsuccessfully. Even in the midst of the fear, our friend Travis (@ourlivelytribe) captured this amazing photo of Clark and I playing around.  This moment, I let go and just spent time focusing on my son.  This moment shows real happiness. For those out there struggling with anxiety: 1) you are not alone 2) we will get past this 3) know that you can always reach out to me no matter who you are if you need to talk.  I have been/am there, and we can help each other. * * * #anxiety #anxietyproblems #reallife #letsgetreal #honesty #honestmotherhood #honestmom #anxietyhelp #getwell #anxietywellness #anxietywellbeing #anxietysupport #momandson #mommyhood #momstrong #momofboys
Legend has it, that people usually respond well to pictures of mini humans and even me on the grid.... But my life is rarely picture perfect ...as evidenced by exhibit A above ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️ Which is why, human sightings are rare around these parts 🙈 . . . How people have these perfect pictures of loving kids..... Who are always immaculately dressed may I add.... I can't relate.😭🤕 It's not my life. 😂 There is nothing wrong with that life... I mean, I wish I had immaculately dressed kids ...and I looked like I stepped off the cover of a magazine.... But alas ..... This is as good as it gets. Though ..... I kind of like this pic🤷🤭 . . 💙Joshua is always a vibe ..a quiet kid to others, but with people he is comfortable with, hilarious, an old soul...and always ready with a smile (and a pose). 💜Addison.... In the middle....the centre of our family.... Dependable....our only princess. Always observing....and checking out what everybody is up to 😁 💙Adam....the baby.... Our household marches to the beat of his drum. If he doesn't want to be in this photo...he won't be.... And he promptly left the frame as I shot 😂😂😂 . . .  #documentingmotherhood #honestmomconfessions #thisismotherhood #momblogger #lifeandlensblog #honestmom #dailyparenting #momswhoblog #letthembelittle #motherhoodintheraw #motherhoodthroughinstagram #mymamahood #our_everyday_moments #ohheymama #teammotherly #ipreview via @preview.app
What's in my bag?!? After having kids, a lot of stuff changes, including the contents of your bag. Some go missing forever while others are broken or nibbled on. Here is a picture of the stuff i could manage to keep in my bag including some random additions!

VS body by Victoria spray  Whats missing? My compact facepowder which i will probably never find!  Watch out for my next post- whats in Izzi's baby bag!
Word: Maa Sadkey  Language : Punjabi  Literal meaning: While giving blessings when a mother means, may I be sacrificed/ given off in charity for your sake.  Practical meaning: Punjabi mothers believe that their kids are God's gift to mankind. So while showing their love, mothers exaggerate a little. (Read Punjabi over-enthusiastic mothers)  Usage: Haye Mera Puttar, awal aaya jamaat'ch. Ni Maa Sadkey jaavan. (Oh! My beloved child, you came first in your class. I can sacrifice my life for you)  P.S She doesn't really mean it.  #bloggersofinstagram #bloggingcommunity #bloggerlifestyle #dailyparenting #honestmom #honestmomconfessions #mamablogger #momblogger #parenthood_unveiled #thisismotherhood #momblog #momadvice #mommyblog #eternalmotherhood #ig_motherhood #justmomlife #momlifestyle #motherhoodsimplified #motherhoodunplugged #unitedinmotherhood #bloggerlife #lifestyleblog #lifestyleblogger #nothingisordinary #punjabimaa #punjabimom #punjabblogger #punjabilanguage #ludhianablogger
Sometimes I take dressing room selfies. 🤳🙈 Does anyone else do this? Do you send them to your friends or significant other? I think I do this purely for the encouragement when something seems a little outside my comfort zone. I know it's not exactly for approval since I bought a swimsuit I really liked even though hubs gave it a 🤷‍♂️. He saw the plain solid color. I saw something that fit great and made me feel good.
For all of you wonderful mums - it doesn’t have to be Mother’s Day to be appreciated and praised for everything you do. 😉 . Never forget how amazing you are and the strength you have as a mum even on the toughest of days. Be kind to yourself. ❤️❤️ .

ONE MONTH ✨  Colin Jay is one month today. What a beautiful month it’s been. Cole is getting bigger and bigger every day, but yet he still swims in 4 zero clothes haha. Now I understand when Mum’s say they don’t want their babies to keep growing.  Cole’s been getting back to his happier self and his belly has started to settle. Thank goodness for that. It’s so hard seeing your baby in pain. Thanks to all the mum’s who sent a message or comment with words of advice, you’re true gems ✨

Today I felt like I was being lazy after I put my daughter to bed. I felt like I should get to work on a project, get something done, but then I realized my fatigue from chasing a toddler around all day😅. This is my break time, so I had some wine and watched some Hulu 🙌🏼 Momming all day makes me tired.
You almost never see me on my own feed, something I am trying to work on! I'm definitely not confident in my own skin these days. My body has changed so much in the last few years.. With my thyroid dying just before my wedding, & then having my two beautiful girls right after... But that's why this year I have off, I'm working on myself 🤗 I've started going to @theyogabarre at least once a week for ME time, & now I've joined the @fitgirls #28dayjumpstart challenge. I'm definitely digging this challenge's mantra, "everything you want to be, you already are" & I'm working hard to believe that of myself. ▪️️ Watch my stories/check out my highlights for day to day progress 🤗 ▪️️ ▪️️ #youalreadyare #fitgirls #fitspiration #getfit #iwill #maketime #personalblog #stillswithstories #honestmom #honestmomconfessions #thisismotherhood #our_everyday_moments #ig_motherhood #momofgirls #mytinytribe #clickinmoms #cameramama #honestmotherhood #momentscollected #postnatalfitness #hypothyroidism #mummytummy #fitmoms #fitmomsofig #canadianmom #momlifeisthebestlife #selflove #selfcare #yoga
When you have a new born, there is a question that comes quite often. You must be tired waking up at night for feeds? In my case, I don’t have disrupted night. Of course there are a lot of things that get me tired I won’t lie, but that’s not one of them. Aliya sleeps around 7pm and wakes up at 7.30am, she sleeps all through the night. Now I would love to tell you there is a secret for that but the truth is there are none. I just figured that what works for us is to follow a simple routine. It’s much easier to do it when you are bottle feeding. When I was breastfeeding I was feeding on demand hence we weren’t really able to follow one. When she turned two months we switched to bottle feeding. I started feeding her every 3 to 4 hours. Now she knows what to expect. She would wake up have her milk, play for an hour an hour and half then a nap. The naps are usually between 1 to 2 hours. Then again feeding etc.. I also give her a bath around 5.30pm which helps her to relax followed by a small massage then feeding, cuddles and I put her in her crib. She usually takes 15 min to fall asleep. Now this works for me but might not work for every baby/mommy. I had read somewhere that Routines help infants and toddlers feel safe and secure in their environment. Young children gain an understanding of everyday events and procedures and learn what is expected of them as routines make their environment more predictable. Now that I started with this routine I like to stick to it as it work best for me. Of course, life with a baby is busy and you won't always be able to anticipate every disruption. While it's only natural to worry, changing things for an afternoon isn't going to undo your good work. 🤗 . . . . .  #dailyparenting #documentingmotherhood #honestmom #honestmomconfessions #lifeandlensblog #mamablogger #momadvice #momblog #momblogger #mommyblog #momswhoblog #parenthood_unveiled #thisismotherhood #stopdropandmom #unitedmomsnetwork #photooftheday #cameramama

What do you do with the last of the snow at the beach? Doodle your brand in it of course!  If this frame was slightly wider, you would see an impatient 3 year old with a stick waiting to scribble all over it.  Sorry kid.

Today Aunty @shaebonquiqui made sensory bins for the kids. They were totally mesmerized for two hours straight. All of it was under 20$ from the dollar store and totally worth it. . . . . . . . . #sensory #sensorybin #kids #letthembelittle #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodunplugged #messyplay #yeg #yegmom #albertamama #remi #honestmom #honestmotherhood #motherhoodintheraw #ohheymama #mymamahood #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified
When did my three-and-a-half year old become so big. She no longer has a face of a baby, but I’m starting to see her as a grown up. Far from acting like one, but it just goes to show you how time flies. ALSO, I’m fairly certain this shirt she is wearing was mine when I was 5 years old when I visited the Philippines for the first time. Who knew when I got this shirt, my daughter would be wearing it three-and-a-half decades later. 👶🏻💨💁🏻‍♀️ #itsamomthing
For my #breastfeeding mamas, when did you know it was time to start weening?  I’ve been using these products on and off since Julian was born. (NOT sponsored!) but is it normal to feel like I’m running low? Lol #momprobs
Same same but different. Heres the thing, when you’ve got a child with a limb difference, there are moments where your faced with and you find yourself thinking ‘but how will they do that?’. When Ella was younger these questions popped in my head more often than I want to admit. Ella is nearly 5, and I can happily say there is absolutely nothing stopping her for doing any singular task. Standing back is easy these days because I know she’ll complete every task in her own way. #limbdifference #luckyfin #luckyfinproject #limbdifferenceawareness #bornthisway #luckyfinsrock #tenfingersareoverrated #lfpfamily #different #celebrate #prosthetic #prosthetics #nofear #nochallange #lovemyfam #familyiseverything #honestmom #newsouthwales #ipreview via @preview.app

Do you think about how your kids will view you as they grow up? I want my kids to think of me as kind, strong, hard working, and a dreamer! I hope they know I want to give them the best life and nothing can hold them back from their goals and dreams. Don’t make excuses why you aren’t living your best life. Because every day we have a choice. What attitude will we have? Will we chase our dreams? Because I have 2 little ones watching what kind of person I am everyday... That’s all. ☺️ #raisinggoodhumans
If you live on the central coast chances are you’ve heard of the outage. These past couple of months my husband has been on the outage schedule which means five 13 hour days each week. To top it off he’s been on the night shift. He gets off work at 7am and spends a little time with Noah before sleeping for his next shift. These are my favorite moments. Noah’s eyes completely light up at the sight of dad and I can’t get enough of his laughter 💕 . .  http://liketk.it/2AIN8 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
These two steal my heart 💓..... . And my shake 🍃 😂
Soy Natalia Mesa. Nací en Medellín hace 38 años. Soy la hija, la sobrina y la nieta mayor en una familia grande. Una responsabilidad importante. Tengo una hermana menor con la que me llevo menos de 2 años. Estudié en un colegio de monjas, el cual me traumatizó y me dio amigas para la vida. Aparentemente soy juiciosa y calmada pero rebelde en mi interior. Estudié Ingeniería de diseño de producto y me casé a los 24 después de 7 años de novios. Toda la vida soñé ser mamá y creo que es para lo que nací. Tuve mis dos hijos, Emilio y Pedro antes de los 30. La maternidad me sacudió, me ha hecho pensar, replantear, estudiar, cuestionarme, mirar para adentro, preguntarme, disfrutar, llorar, vivir, sentir. También me ha hecho llegar tarde a todo, lo cual me aterra. Soy una persona muy sensible. Lloro por todo. Soy perfeccionista, planeadora, controladora. Me siento bendecida con lo que he vivido, con las oportunidades y aprendizajes que aparecen cada día y sobre todo con las personas que el universo pone en mi camino. Trabajé en mercadeo empleada tiempo completo hasta que tuve mi primer hijo. A partir de ese momento cambié mi esquema de vida, trabajo más flexible, estoy con mis hijos, hago de todo. Vivo más ocupada y nunca alcanzo a hacer lo que quiero, pero me encanta como soy ahora. Me gusta el vino y si es con amigas más, amo las crispetas de cine y no me resisto ante un buñuelo recién hecho. Me conecto conmigo misma pintando o creando algo con mis manos. Desde una pintura hasta una torta. Me cuesta socializar, aunque trato de ser querida, a veces es muy difícil. Luego entro en confianza y puedo llegar a ser el payaso de la noche. Lo que más me gusta de la vida es estar con mi familia. Donde sea.  #lifestylebloggers #estasoyyo #mivida #mylife #bloguera #blogger #lifestyleblogger #cornersofmyworld #bloggerlife #momblog #momblogger #honestmom #muchogusto
