Erinnert ihr euch noch an mein Bild das ich vor der Schwangerschaft gepostet habe mit den lustigsten Streichen der Kinder , fand ich damals ziemlich lustig . Wusste jedoch das wenn der Tag kommt wo es mich nicht trifft es nicht mehr so witzig ist . Das ist der Inhalt von einem selbstgenähten Kissen . 🙄😱 Und der war nicht nur im Kinderzimmer sondern im ganzen unterem Geschoss. Zu schade das ich gerade zum Arzt musste als das passiert ist und mein Freund die ehrenvolle Aufgabe hat das Chaos zu beseitigen . Er war so sauer er hat selbst den Bezug in den Müll geworfen 😱😭😒🙄😅😂 Dafür durfte ich zwei Stunden beim Arzt warten und hallo wie kacke ist das eigentlich mit der Aussicht nicht krankgeschrieben zu werden ?!?!? 😂 Sondern „ nur „ Medikamente zu bekommen . Keine Woche im Bett liegen , den halben Tag schlafen , den anderen Teil Netflix zu schauen und im besten Fall auch noch bekocht zu werden von der Mama die einen lieb umsorgt 😭😭😭😭😂😂 aber dafür gehen die beiden morgen wieder in den Kindergarten und ich werde den ganzen Tag nichts machen ... NICHTS . Und mich dann am Mittag ärgern doch wieder mehr gemacht zu haben als geplant . 🤨😫 #momlife#thestruggleisreal#chaos#lebenmitkindern#lebenmitzwillingen#thatslife#weheeinerlacht#nichtlustig#okeinbisschen
My poor little guy needing a good snuggle after his vaccinations. Those eyes making me feel all kinds of guilt. Almost 2 months late getting them thanks to almost continuous illnesses over here but as they say, better late than never! #dontbeagrapevaccinate#socialresponsibility

Can't forget the sting rays...They were so hungry! 🐟
Been going since I got up this morning.
Started working from home again, so I had training to do first thing. While making coffee, I had to throw a winter coat in the dryer, make oatmeal for kiddos, and make the #redhead’s lunch since we’re putting her on a low carb/high protein, no processed sugar, no dairy diet, aka, pain in the butt. This change up is in hopes that we can work on her listening, comprehension, and follow through skills and by curbing sugar, hopefully curb the attitude that has been rearing its ugly head lately.
Between preparing breakfast, lunch, work, soap related business, and wardrobe changes thanks to baby, Buster has been so very good at entertaining himself with his abundance of wheeled toys and Rescue Bots on Netflix. I have had to intervene a few times and he somehow found a stray Hershey Kiss left over from Valentine’s, but overall, he’s been awesome.
So when he begged to be picked up after I confiscated a loud paper bag from his sticky grasp, I happily obliged. He wrapped those chubby arms around my neck, patted my back, and nuzzled into my chest. We sat down and snuggled for a bit before he was off my lap and back to his trucks.
Starting to work again made me anxious that I wouldn’t have the time needed to spend with my babies. However, I have learned that I’m not losing time with the kids if I choose to utilize wisely the times without them. There are plenty of hours in the day, but not everything is a priority and much of the “fat” can be trimmed so that more of the important things can be the main focus of the day. .
Nap time cut short so we can pick the biggest #vaclavikkids up from school = laying on and against mom for a few minutes before we leave :) #momlife

Last month the American Academy of Pediatrics published a statement on the importance of nutrition in the first 1000 days of a child’s life. We at Foublie are building a parent’s go-to resource on child feeding and pediatric nutrition. Today we launch our first Deep Dive! It is an easy to read guide on what every parent needs to know about the AAP statement and about the first 1000 days when feeding their kids. Check it out! Link in profile! #first1000days#AAP

What does truth look like?
Truth looks like letting people see who you really are, what inspires you, how you love, what you avoid, the challenges, the failures, the learning.
Sharing your truth is, quite simply, sharing yourself. Letting people experience your ebbs and flows along side you.
For the last three years, I’ve been in an interesting place... becoming a mama, shifting who I am on a core level, having days/weeks/months that felt like I was doing so much & nothing at the same time.
Somehow I convinced myself that my truth wasn’t valuable. Or needed. Or refined enough. I was too much, too messy, too unfocused. Too in it to share.
But something foundational is shifting within me again. Like a bear coming out of hibernation, I feel awake for the first time in a long time.
So, I am vowing to you today that I will bravely share my truth with you starting NOW. That you will experience me in a new way here. That my voice, in all of it’s imperfections and idiosyncrasies will join the chorus of those willing to be heard.
And if you’re called, I invite you to join me in sharing our truths, together.
Our voices are needed. Our experiences are valuable. Our time is now. We are the leaders, change-makers, soul-shifters. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
There is something about a warm day in the middle of winter that is just good for your soul 🌤
We are going for a walk. Outside. In February. In New York. .
Soaking up all of this beautiful 65 degree weather with my little family while it lasts.

It’s wonderfully warm today, a taste of Spring. Is your little one’s wardrobe ready for the change in seasons?

Some days I get up and do things... other days I lay in bed all day cherishing every second. These are the moments I will never get back ❤️ #Balance

One of the sweetest reveals. This couple waited patiently for this blessing for 7 years. I loved getting to witness the excitement...shock...and at moments, speechlessness when @sara.best.mccoy told @cordmccoy he would be a daddy. Gods timing is always the best. And I’m so excited for this couple as they enter into this next chapter in their life.
There are no words for the love I have for these babies of mine! Life certainly has changed and it’s hard to remember what it felt like without a baby always on my hip and I truly wouldn’t have it any other way! But these little loves also bring 43537 messes to clean up a day, and germs to get rid of 24/7! @dial is the only soap I’ve found that kills 99.9% bacteria AND moisturizes skin so that your hands are soft after every use. It’s my go-to to help keep our home germ free☺️ #2in1#DialCompletesUs#ad#sponsored
When I was a teen, I couldn’t wait to have a place of my own. I remember thinking it will have all MY favorite foods. Now, I have my own house...but also have tiny little elves who find my treats and eat them. #momlife is the best life 😉. 🌈🦄♥️

You guys!! It has been wayyy too long since I’ve been on here. First I want to thank Mariel @curious_strands and Becky @wispyprincess for putting together a twin for Sophie’s birthday yesterday. A huge thank you to everyone who joined, you made her day! •
Amazing bow by our BFF @sittinginatreebtq •
This is a three strand pull through with curls. I did her curls with a wand
I had the honor yesterday to speak in our governors office to honor the day of remembrance for the Japanese Americans who were interned during WWII. My grandmother was interned when she was 15 years old, and she recently passed away last July. It was an emotional day for me not only because my baby was turning four, but honoring my grandma on such a huge stage was something I’ll never forget.
