Last night Kenny read her first book to me at bedtime. It was unexpected so you can only imagine how proud I was! So today we went straight to the library and let her make her own library card (no more using mommy or daddy’s!) She picked out several Christmas stories and even checked her books out all by herself. As soon as her receipt printed she looked at me wide eyed and said “Omg mom. I got a receipt just like you do at Target!” Lol it really is the little things!

Instagram and social media is not real life. You all look at our page and see happy babies in good lighting. Cute clothes, doing activities, and while they are, in fact, very happy children, things are HARD. I have anxiety and each day, getting out of bed is a task all of it’s own. I have been working hard all year to try and identify my anxiety triggers to make things more bearable and unfortunately, this sweet face is one of them. That sounds awful but let me explain. This child, she is the most strong willed person I have ever encountered in my life. I gave birth to someone stronger than me. Because she’s so strong and stubborn and smart, she’s also disrespectful. She has this immense amount of intelligence but is only 3 years old so a lot of her words and the way she takes demand in life gets lost in translation because she doesn’t realize she’s only 3. She thinks she’s the boss of the house and while I don’t ever want to silence her, I have to tone police her. She is so hard to parent because she ultimately wants to raise herself. The days when she thinks she knows everything, tantrums ensue - screaming, yelling, hitting, scratching. And I never know what days will be like this. Today was one of those days. The type where I had to close my door and get a quick cry out. I know one day this smart girl will dominate this world and leave a BIG mark, but today, I wish this 3 year old knew....and yet, I’m glad she doesn’t know just what she puts me through. Parenthood is my anxiety trigger. This felt like a dear diary post but I post in hopes that I’m not alone. #motherhoodunfiltered
Oh, sweet pea - you are three months old today! I can hardly believe how much you’ve changed. You love to talk with me and daddy, eat, look at the twinkling Christmas lights, and listen to books. You’re a gem, honey. We love you!
It’s been 2 years between these 3 pictures. While this picture shows my physical transformation, it doesn’t show how hard it has been. There have been tears, smile, sweat, and sacrifices...it’s been up and down....and lots and lots for grace! I’m a chronic bad eater. I love food and have a hard time saying no to it. After my first pregnancy I though I could just run off the weight and when that didn’t work I had no idea what to do! Thankfully over the last 4 years I’ve learned how to eat the right foods to fuel my body. How much to eat and when to eat, plus I have the support. Did you try something in 2018, and it just didn’t work. I’ve been there before...start a new program, last for 3 days and then fall off... try again next week, type of thing. Maybe you want some support in 2019! That’s why I’m here! I can help support you and share with you all I have learned and help you to RISE UP in 2019!!! . I still have room for 3 more ladies in my January Bootcamp, go to the link in my profile and fill out the form just to find out more information!
Guess who took naps today?? 😊 Yes Sona and Ziva. Not me. 😂 I did a little mom dance when I heard those soft snores. 🥰 I love them so much, but I also love when I get breaks that come with zero crankiness 🙌🏾. Today we went to target, picked out wrapping paper, did some more grocery shopping and I got EVERYthing on my list except a damn red onion 🙄🙄. Walked right past it. 🤪It’s ok Nick got it, because I was DETERMINED to get them to bed! But I was proud because another paycheck paid for my groceries and gas this week. You’ll stay watching, I’ll only continue to grow and work harder. Cause months ago I dreaded going to the store, I stressed about Christmas, and Nick’s birthday. But this year I didn’t. Gifts bought and paid for, I’m checking things off my Dream board and I’m proud of me 😁. Lol Who knew getting out of my comfort zone and pushing myself would open up doors and lead to confidence and fulfillment. 😊 GO ME *does dance* If you haven’t checked my story out already or the link in my bio, check them out we have new trial packs. 😍🤩 That I’m so FREAKING excited about!!!!!!🥳🥳🥳 I have a limited number so if you want one let me know ASAP!!!!! 📲 - - - - - #momoftwocubs#sonamcgee#zivamcgee#igmom#igdad#happy#soexcited#love#life#momlife#fitmom#fitmomsofig#inspire#create#learn#grow#mixedbabiesig#mixedbabies#toddlers#igtoddlers#toddlersofinstagram#like#sisters#minniemouse#disney#christmas#tree
