Forgot to post this milestone 💜 It's the most intense feeling, this motherhood thing. I'm not waiting to meet him, I already know him and he knows me. We're already connected for life, already in love. He is already my greatest adventure. His future has already become the entirety of mine. His love is my magic. #36weeks#pregnant#milestone#hormones#allthefeels#motherhood#love#magic#briar
We occasionally go to the local pub for a Sunday roast if we're feeling brave, and its a logistical nightmare. Firstly, you can never, ever guarantee that everyone is going to be hungry at the same time. If you ARE lucky enough to get out of the house when hunger levels are peaking, but before starvation tantrums kick in, chances are that you'll cave in on the way and give someone a bag of emergency Quavers. That throws all plans of a quiet lunchtime out the window. 'Would you like a starter Madam?' Yes. I really, really would. But I won't, because that'll extend the meal by 15 minutes and I know I'll regret it when baby Houdini starts wrestling her way out of the high chair half way though my main course. I start to panic if the food takes a while to come, knowing there's only a small window of time before the kids kick off. I just want them to bring out whatever food is ready, or bring it all out together. Starters, mains, fuck it, bring the pudding first if that's the quickest thing to get on the table. Just get these children fed. One child will always refuse to eat theirs, tucking into my gorgeous roast lamb lunch instead (which he adamantly declined when asked 3 times by the waitress.) I also feel overwhelmingly guilty by the mess left on the floor when they've finished, (usually about a tenners worth of lunch I reckon) and always find myself under the table picking peas out the carpet while both children joyously kick me in the back of the head. Ah Sunday, you spoil us, you really do. Now off to work 😐
Turning O N E in 2 days. 😭 Kelini is still completely uninterested in the idea of walking but will climb anything & everything (monkey girl). 🙈 Everyday we thank our Heavenly Father for blessing us with your crazy little spirit; we love you Lini girl. 🌻 #11months#ourkelini
When you become a parent, life obliterates into a new world the NANO second you birth that life onto Earth. Nothing can ever be the same. Nothing wants to be the same. Your eyes widen, afresh with things you never SAW before. It's like you went to sleep but woke up as someone totally new. Because this creature is all you breathe for. Of course as the days, months, years expand & if more children are added, it becomes second nature. You second guess and know how to parent each of your children. Life pre kids is a distant memory, a foggy, glitzy, elixir-ridden lifetime ago, that is always remembered as if every day was a party thrown by Jordan Belforte (or is that just me 🤔). Of course it wasn't. But it feels easier to remember it that way. Sacrificial harking back at the past is so satisfying when you re knee-deep is toddler SHIT - the plastic kind OR the faecal kind. You talk a secret code. If you re a boy MUM like me jargon as follows will be known: Lego, ninjago, fidget spinners, Pokemon, Dan TDM, Roblox, mouth guards, knee pads, Xbox, 3ds, Mario Kart, toxic waste sweets, power rangers. And if you re mum to any gender, iggle piggle is standard in your household. Unless you re a non tv watching smug git of a parent - I hate non tv parents. Just saying...but on the eve that my eldest goes away for his longest ever stint from us, I feel strangely melancholy. I will miss being asked to go on the Xbox. I will even miss the graiting sound of Dan TDM s voice. No matter how much we wish for a day like it was pre kids, if you re like me, when you get it, it somehow lacks the glitz it holds in one s imaginings. Anticipation is truly greater than realisation 🦁
This beach trip was much needed, after the hustle of the cities and of travel. The beach was just what my body was craving. Grounding into the sand, enjoying my family and the sound of the waves. Perfect. #consciousparenting
@sudocrem has conducted a large study on motherhood in Ireland today, and the findings will ring true for so many of us ❤️For instance, it turns out so many of us (50 percent, to be accurate) feel like society does not appreciate the role of mothers and that when it comes to support, 62 percent listed their partner as their main daily support - and yet only 14 percent claims their partner does the same amount of work at home as they do ❤️Do these numbers seem true to you? #sudocrem#motherhood#survey

Al nacer mi bebé, nada salió según lo planeado, mi deseo d ser LME se complicaba al no poder darle pecho a mi bebé, cuando finalmente pude estar con mi bebé y darle pecho empezó mi viaje por la lactancia, problemas de agarre por estar acostumbrado a tomar biberón en el hospital y descubrir q mis pezones no facilitaban el agarre, crisis de frustración por el dolor al no lograr el agarre, grietas miles! De no haber sido por Rosangel quien con sus conocimientos en lactancia me apoyó en todo momento y las chicas de la Revolución de la Teta 😊💪🏽💪🏽hubiera desistido hace mucho, cada vez q me encontraba a punto de renunciar las chicas me decían "No, tú puedes, lo vas a lograr" y así entre grietas, ordeños y llantos fui poco a poco avanzando, aún el agarre no es perfecto, aún no logro ser lme a un 100%, pero se q lo lograre! 😊💪🏽mi bebé cada día toma más veces directo de la teta y menos biberón, ya no hay grietas y si duele un poco recuerdo las palabras de una mamita del grupo "Es mi bebé, yo puedo"
Si yo pude, todas pueden, a veces es solo cuestión de tiempo, no todas las mujeres somos iguales y no todas corren con la dicha de lograr un perfecto agarre a la semana, a veces nos toma 2 meses y medio lograrlo jeje pero gracias a grupos como este hoy día muchas mujeres podemos disfrutar de una lactancia exitosa🎉😊
Paramos? JAMÁS vamos por más por todos los rincones de PANAMA 🇵🇦.
