#taraleigh eats bananas, oranges, french fries (from McDonald's), @brothersallnatural fruit crisps (your fruit makes up 90% of her diet), and hot dogs. So when she ASKED me for chickens today and then proceeded to actually EAT chicken nuggets; you best believe I was staring at her just like @iamsteveharveytv 😳 #autismmom#lifewithkids#momlife#autism @julianna_acacia
Was on a resume received this week. As I agree parenting is a part of life if you choose that life path for yourself. I’m not certain one should classify it as a job. Literally have received 3 resumes total with this as a category under jobs. I’m just glad there was no end date posted. 🤦♀️ #seriously#momlife
This beauty 😍 am I right?? I was so stoked to collaborate with the adorable @scarlettannelysse especially since we share a home state ( Hey hey KS sisters 🌻✌🏻 ) so give her a follow and check out some more shots of this amazing hand dyed romper -> next drop May 3

Ended our trip with some fun at the resort’s water park ☀️ These boys were such troopers but I guess I have all these fun gadgets, like these travel bassinets from @lulyboobaby, to thank for making it easy on us! And swipe for the cutest pic of the boys looking all grown up on me! Check my insta stories for more...including my crazy husband on a water slide I did not care to join him on 😬! #poolside#travelbaby#twins
MEAL PLANNING // okay, if you’ve been following along in my stories you may have seen that I meal planned a few things this week (also see 2 posts back) .. if I’m completely honest, initially, the work seems almost not worth it .. but here are some reasons it is .. .
⏰ time // as much time it takes, doesn’t compare to the time saved. 🤔🙋🏻 . .
💰 money // bringing this little cup of oatmeal along saved me from stopping & getting a $3 cup .. an entire bag of oats costs about the same & has fed us breakfast for the last 2 1/2 weeks. . .
💆🏻 sanity // getting small kids out of the house can be like roping cattle 🐄 (in my opinion). We live in an apartment so we’re walking down stairs with backpacks & whatever else the kids have decided is necessary for the car ride. 🚗🤷🏻♀️ Eating can sometimes feel like a chore. So my goal is to try & eat/grab at least one healthy meal/day & for me, that’s usually breakfast. Today, it was oatmeal & a bag of almonds. & now I won’t feel so bad when we make cookies later. .
So that’s why I share so much about #mealprep & #mealplanning I feel like it’s wisdom that’s been passed down that’s changed my life for the better. 🙏🏼🙌🏼 #oats . .
What are some things y’all do throughout the week that make your home &/or work life easier?
This kiddo doesn’t have it easy. He’s faced a lot of challenges in his young life. What I love most about him is how hard he tries! No matter what he always gets back up, dusts himself off, gives it another go!! 💪
We can learn a lot from that kind of #perseverance ! These days we want everything to be #easypeasy ! I’m so #grateful that God gave me this #dailyreminder to #trust His promises, #workhard , and #reachforthestars no matter what the circumstances are! ⭐️
I am THAT person... I take on way too much, I never ask for help. I think that if I don’t do it, it will either not get done or get done the wrong way. I need to STOP, slow down and remember I am only human. I need to learn to say no. And remember what is important in this life... time with my babies... not crossing something off my never ending to do list. So today I am encouraging you, stop and take a moment to enjoy your family. Spend the money to have someone check something off your to do list... pay the extra $5. to do the Walmart grocery pickup. Hire someone to clean your house or mow your yard. Because in the end, that extra $5, $45, or even $100. you spent to spend time with your family is totally worth it! ⠀
