Balance!! Working moms trying to maintain work, motherhood, and the list goes on! I was ALWAYS overwhelmed until I fed up feeling like I’m rushing from the time I wake up until it’s time for bed. I was feeling guilty for rushing and my children didn’t get time with me during the week. So I overcompensated on the weekends. That all changed when I decided to make a schedules. I may not have succeeded everyday, but I had my day planned out. My kiddos began knowing what’s happening next based on the time 🙌🏽 meals during the week, I invested in a crockpot so once I got gone I could focus on homework time/ spending time with my babies. ❤️ if at times you feel overwhelmed, try creating a schedule. My kiddos are all big and guess what?? I still use a schedule lol! #momlife#schedules#eveningswithfamilyarethebest#qualitytime#lessstress#organized#claritycounts
Our sweet baby Lucas is officially one month old today! 😍😭 Some of the things we’ve discovered about him:
He loves to sit in his swing, he loves going on walks in his stroller, he wants to be held and cuddled all day, and he hates tummy time and rolls over anytime we try to get him to do it, and he hates it when we put lotion on him!
I have no idea where the last month went (it got lost somewhere in there with all the sleep deprivation 😂) but we’re so happy to have this cute guy in our family! ❤️
I usually don't like my nose much but it is cute as heck in this picture. 😘 also I'm still battling shingles, which is a ball of suck. I can't fix these roots or get a haircut until I'm all better and I think that's what is bugging me the most. 🙃 #momlife#alifeworthliving#blah#verticallabret#messybuns
Look at these two kids having fun and roaring at each other. I could watch this over and over again.
They had so much fun!
What was the last thing you did that was so much fun?
I was warned that Kindergarten had a lot of homework. But I didn’t know they would be doing math problems! I try to space out the homework so that B isn’t doing too much every day, which really helps it not to feel so overwhelming (for me😂). And I always give him the option to take a 10 minute break when he needs to.
For the most part B enjoys doing homework. The biggest struggle is finding the time to sit down and actually do it!
How do you juggle homework and maintain healthy life balance at the same time?!

Asher and I went to a toddler “stages and ages” class this morning and learned all about when it’s appropriate for a parent to intervene and when to let kids work it out themselves (which I struggle with 🤦🏼♀️). It was a great class, for both of us! I highly recommend @themamahood to my parent friends. The people and teachers are amazing and I love the other mamas and their littles. Despite Asher’s face in this picture, he loved it.
