Three little snuggle bunnies woke up ready for Easter weekend! 🐰🐰🐰 Were having an egg hunt tomorrow with their cousins, and serving Easter dinner for the fam at our house. I mentioned this before, but we’re excited to celebrate our first Easter out of the NICU! Hope everyone enjoys the weekend with friends and family, whatever it is you celebrate! ❤️ • • • Swipe ➡️ for outtakes 😜
Hi everyone, so as some of you all know... I’ve been in a bad car accident. My boys were in the car with me when we got hit, but thankfully to God the boys didn’t get not one scratch on their tiny bodies. Unfortunately, my car didn’t get so lucky. When all the air bags deployed, I got hit in the face and arm. I was taken to the emergency room and good thing no broken bones but just badly bruised up. Ive been going through some hard struggles trying to recover, trying to do things with my kids (diaper changing, homeschool, cooking, etc), and all the hard aftermath the comes after the car accident like insurance, finding out next step in getting a new car and etc. The worst part of it all was that day I felt something in my body telling me to not leave the house, I was supposed to go to a birthday dinner and I truly was hesitating to go since day one.... and when leaving my house not even 3 minutes on the road this all happened. Right in front of my home. This thought that if I listened to myself and not of gone could of been prevented. This thought that the 18 year old boy who was driving the other car could of hit the backside where my kids were at, when I was hit in the face I blacked out for a few seconds but what if I didn’t wake up? Just all these thoughts and what ifs come to mind. You could be the best driver in the world but you can never have control of the other drivers around you. I’m grateful, so freaking glad my kids and I are okay. But now I have to start caring for myself and try to recover from everything. That’s the main reason I didn’t want to show my face in my post, I’m ashame of what it has become. I never felt this way towards myself until this very day. I can barely see myself in the mirror let alone let people see me how I look all bruised up. Yesterday I was surround with family and friends and all the questions and pettiness that spread around the room made me feel even worst than before. I don’t want anybody to feel bad
Am I right or am I right? Daniel is out for the day helping our friends move (seriously everyone moved at the same time) and I’m treating myself to all the coffee and unashamedly topping it with the most delicious almond milk whipped cream you’ll ever find. If I’m being completely honest… I used to panic when Daniel was gone on a Saturday. That was my day to be hands free, and I wouldn’t let anyone lay a finger on it. But I’m learning how to find peace in parenting even when I’m flying solo, and I am learning that that often looks like doing little things to care for myself in the midst of chaos. #saturday#ourcrawfordcrew
Hot coffee and slow mornings are what my Saturday morning dreams are made of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’re heading out for a few errands (I love when we run weekend errands as a family), and then home to enjoy some of this spring sunshine. ☀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What adventures are up ahead for you today? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SLEEP SUCCESS Last time was the first in the past 7 months that I got a solid 6 hours of straight sleep 🙌🙌 Woop woop 💃🤸♀️ Oh and Olive slept well too. I went to the library this week and picked up all their sleeping books as Google could only tell me so much. I never knew how difficult it would be to put Olive down. I also didn't realize I could function (well barely function) on such little sleep. Well today is the start of a new era of sleep for our family and I'm so excited. Finger crossed it only gets better from here. I'll be sharing some sleep knowledge and tips in an upcoming post.

I don’t have time. I don’t like to workout. It’s so hard to start. I don’t have the budget for it. My life is crazy right now. These are all excuses I’ve made in the past. When you’re really ready to change your life, you do it. And when you’re ready, I’ll be here waiting for you to join me. #thatsmomlife#startnow#sayyestolife

Saturday check-in! Who can relate to this? . . I find myself feeling spread thin from time to time and have to re-evaluate. This is when I need to figure out what I’m saying “yes” to that is actually saying “no” to me and my family. . . Lately, I’ve been saying “no” quite a bit. I don’t have to apologize or over-explain. I have clear goals that I am working toward and this may mean that people see less of me. That’s completely okay. We are not obligated to meet the needs of others. We each have a journey we’re on and sometimes our journey requires us to pull away. . . Being alone doesn’t always mean isolation. Sometimes it’s what we need to renew, reset, refocus. . . Are your priorities set clearly? . . . . . Repost: @heyamberrae

Saturday for moms means: same shit - different day. 🙌🏻💯 maybe with some added stress of family events. Which means making sure your kids are on their best behavior so no one thinks you have bratty kids. 😅 Dress appropriately now mamas. 💃🏼 #fabulous#iwokeuplikethis#imchangingintotights
