Saturday vibes... Just some girls and glasses 🥰🤓and some fun in the summer 🌞💕
I couldn’t agree with this more. Ha ha.
I have pretty much failed as a mum the last two days. In fact I may have even sent Rob a text saying I have resigned as a mother because I do not have the strength or stamina to do this job. I yelled at them for yelling, I didn’t respond calmly or like the adult I am supposed to be. I was selfish. I wanted to do what I wanted to do when I wanted to do it forgetting toddlers have a different time line. I wasted two days with my ladies being frustrated and mad at them instead of figuring out how I can help them through this tough spot.
Luckily I have a husband who is a 90% better human/parent than I am and came and gave me space to reset. I work at the hospital the next three days, but thankfully my resignation was declined and you better believe I will be ready to be Mummy come Tuesday!!
Kids got jokes... 😊 just in case you want your ovaries to explode, I recorded the cutest laughing video of him this morning (posted in my stories).
Motherhood is vulnerable. Love is vulnerable. I once heard someone say that we can only love to the degree to which we open ourselves up to potential pain. That is motherhood. Moms take the vulnerability, risk, and pain of love into our own bodies. We believe our children are worth the pain, and worth the vulnerability of uncertainty. We fall in love the moment we discover our child’s existence, yet quickly realize it is impossible for us to fully protect them. So much vulnerability lies in that place of unconditional love and possible loss. As moms we carry the vulnerability of love in a way no one else does. And though that can be scary, the possible pain and impossible love of carrying and birthing a child, it paints an incredible picture of the gospel. Jesus thought we were worth infinite pain. He endured the pain of the cross so we could have the choice of choosing him, of choosing life. Jesus thought we were worth infinite risk. He didn’t force us to chose Him, but gave us the choice. The choice that made the God of the universe vulnerable. He was, and is, willing to be rejected by us so that we might choose to fully love Him. I have never felt more vulnerable than I have through pregnancy and parenting Elliot, yet I know he is worth the risk, vulnerability, and pain. I’m thankful for the unique way that motherhood allows me to partner with God in the pain and beauty of growing life. And the process daily makes me more aware of my need for my Savior.
My desert boy. Spending time in nature together is very important, as there are so many documented benefits for cognitive, emotional, and spiritual development. I highly recommend the book “Last Child in the Woods.” Growing up in the woods of New Hampshire, I spent every day, rain, snow, or shine outdoors. In the winter we would trek down a quarter mile to a river, and build a fire on its banks to stay warm for the hours we were out there. Then we’d make our way back home in the dark through snow up to our knees. Sometimes we used flashlights, sometimes the moon, sometimes candles to light our way. Nature is always changing, always evolving, and when you go to a place often enough you become aware of all those small incremental changes happening in the forest every day. I didn’t have TV or the internet as a kid, and I truly believe getting outside is the antidote to screen time (I say this as I type on a smart phone on my social media app 😜). Do you guys struggle with too much screen time vs.outdoor time? We definitely did during winter in Indiana. | #momme#clubmomme#mymotherhood#toddler#toddlerplay#toddlerfashion#boymom#boymomlife#nature#explore#desert#weouthere
Our big Memorial Day Weekend plans? Transitioning this sweet kiddo to a big girl bed! 😲 She woke up this morning declaring her disdain for her crib and is now currently napping away in pink-tasseled twin bed. 🙌🏻 No one prepared me for how emotional this part of parenthood would make me (I’M NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING 😭), but it’s also been such a majorly exciting milestone! As hard as I may try to keep her my little baby, she’s growing braver and smarter and more independent each day. Honest truth is I’m so proud of her I could burst! Buuuuut check back with me tomorrow morning. 😏We’ve still got the night to make it through and if I’ve learned one thing from toddlerhood, it’s that they’re always up for throwing us curveballs at a moments notice. Gearing up for a weekend of tall pours 🍷 and lost sleep, but LOOK 👏🏻AT👏🏻 OUR 👏🏻BIG 👏🏻GIRL👏🏻 GO! ❤️🥳😍 #letshearitforthegirl#babiesdontkeep#TeamCotéDoesParenthood #YourDailyHeidi
