MOM GUILT.....when I was pregnant with Sydney I would break down and cry thinking of not having my one on one time with Bennett anymore. It was just the 3 of us for THREE AND HALF whole years, so I wasn’t quite sure how to feel. I was so happy about having another baby and giving Bennett a sibling but I still felt guilty. Now that Sydney has been here for almost a year I still struggle with this, but now I feel guilty with both kids...when I get some one on one time with Bennett, I feel like I’m not giving his sister enough one one one time and when I’m just with Syd, I feel bad for not being with Bennett. it’s a constant struggle! Can anyone else relate?!😩
It’s National Bump Day today (how did I miss this last year?) and oddly enough I’m actually really missing this bump! 🤰🏼 Sydney will be one in another month and a half and I’ve been sad thinking about how I’ll never be pregnant again or get to experience a newborn again 😭 (we are done having kids) how did you all cope with feelings like this, knowing this time in your life is over?
Rash Guards for babies and kids is a no brainer, but basically I do it because I’m lazy and it’s one less place you have to put sunblock on them!😜 I recently got a few of these Adventure shirt from @tulipmagnolia and they are GENIUS..now I have less places to put sunblock on for MYSELF, so my lazy butt has been basically wearing them all summer long. My friend hand paints the designs (she’s crazy talented!) and also just launched a kids line too! #shopsmall #rashguard #floralprints #swimwear #adventure #beachlife #saltlife
Remember when I used to actually post about clothes and not just pictures of my kids? 😜 There never seems to be enough time to go shopping these days, but this dress has been one of my favorite purchases so far this summer! It kind of reminds me of a beach ball🤔 Did anyone else snag one when it went on sale? I ended up with an extra one in a size small if anyone wants it! http://liketk.it/2DmRv #liketkit @liketoknow.it #stripes #maxidress #rainbowmaxi #rainbow #stripedmaxi #jcrew #jcrewstyle #sunflowers
Did you know that there are only 2,000 days between the time a baby is born and when he or she will begin kindergarten? (cue the mom tears😭) Our brains grow the fastest between the ages of 0 & 3 so investing in programs that support early brain development in infants and toddlers yields returns in the long run through more years of education, more employment and better health as an adult! Last night I was invited to event hosted by @gaearlyed to learn more about @qualityrated childcare and schools in the state of Georgia. @qualityrated offers a search tool which helps make finding the best child care services simple for parents like me. The free search tool helps parents access safety and inspection reports for each facility and also provides services offered, Quality Rated star-ratings, teacher credentials, operating hours, tuition prices and even gives you transportation options if you are needing them. If you are Georgia parent like me, I highly encourage you to find a school for your child by visiting QualityRated.org! #GEEARS #QualityRated #ad

“All day, straight up pimp- if you want me, you can find me in the A!” Spent my weekend in my hometown, which is apparently where it’s at these days! On another note, I found out on Friday that I have an umbilical hernia (yay for postpartum😝) anyone ever have one and get the surgery?! I’d love to hear your experience! #awesomealpharetta #umbilicalhernia #postpartum http://liketk.it/2D1s5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
