This quarantine has taught me one thing. I love and cherish these two, even in the most brutal of situations. Yesterday was a rough day. And we, as parents, didnt exactly handle it in the best way. I ended up crying myself to sleep because I was so mad at myself. If you're feeling the same way right now Momma, reach out to me. I am here for YOU. Quarintine is making parenting 100x harder! You are not alone. How are you guys, durimg all of this? #lifeasmama #raisinglittles #stayathomemommy #acupofmotherhood #realmotherhood #familyfirst #happymom #raisingthefuture #girlmamalife #momprobs #momminainteasy #mommyneedsabreak #lifewithlittles #thatmomlife #mywholeheart #mommyblogger #mommytribe #0430mamas #motherhoodtribe #TennesseeMom #TNMom #TennesseeMommyBloggers #parentinghacks #momtruth #raisinglittleswithplay #socialdistancingwithkids #shallweplaytoday #momswhoblog #motherhoodmoment #thisismotherhood

What Elsa Has Taught Me As A Parent

I don’t want her growing up thinking she’s “better” than anyone else by the color of her skin nor do I want her to feel like she should be ashamed of who she is. But I also don’t want her growing up in a world where Social Distancing is normal. She needs to know that human connection is a normal part of life, and laughing and hugging isn’t a bad thing. As things in our world slowly start becoming more normal (but will we ever get to a point where we aren’t afraid of being around one another?) again after the pandemic, my heart was heavy that many daycares were forced to close, permanently.

Sponsored | The space above our bed needed a little bit of decoration. Slowly the house is coming together, piece by piece... Little by little. ⁠ ⁠ A secret love of mine is knowing where key moments in my life took place. One of the best days of my life was when my daughter was born, and now I have a beautiful keepsake of the location that we became parents. When I opened this map from @mapiful, it brought instant happy tears to my eyes. It flooded me with so many great memories that happened when we lived there.⁠ ⁠ Did you know that each Mapiful print is unique and make a great reminder of the moments that mattered most? Your loved one surely will love hers, as much as I love mine! For a limited time only, you can get 50% off your 2nd print!

What Mom Really Wants For Mother's Day, WINE!!

You guys, after the week we’ve had with the tornados, and our septic tank having a clog and needing repairs AND my Father-In-Law moving in with us since he found a job up here and hasn’t been able to find his own space, yet I mean, my Moscato is great, but sometimes a girl needs some variety in her life, amiright or amiright? I went online Winc and took a short quiz that determined my preferences for wines, and BAM next thing They’ll replace that bottle for me, no questions asked, and you can even rate your wines for an even better chance of getting more wines that you like.

A little play time humor to lighten things up after some unexpected news at Wookie's 5-Year well check today.⁠ ⁠ Hey y'all, say hi to Apple Jack from My Little Pony!⁠ ⁠ Wookie found my hat, and immediately started pretend play! She's pretending to be Apple Jack after a long day of harvesting the Apple Orchard.⁠ ⁠ Don't you just love how kids see something and it immediately sparks imagination and creativity?⁠ What is your childs favorite prwtend play activity? ⁠ #letthembelittle #littlehumans #childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #kidsforreal #thesiblingsproject #mommyandme #littlepiecesofchildhood #instakid #prettylittlething #letthekids #illuminatechildhood #magicofchildhood #littleandbrave #wildandfreechildren #readtoyourkids #petitejoys #mytinymoments #thatsdarling #toddlersofig #mommasheart #watchthemgrow #kidlit #mommaandme #littleloves #worldoflittles #toddlersofinstagram #whatevertheweatherkids #0424mamas

A Nashville Mom's Timeout

Make sure you check my Instagram Stories every day for fun activities to do, or if you forget a day they’ll all be placed in my highlight section! There are many great benefits from reading to kids, but how cool to have astronauts, actors, and authors to read to your children? Virtual field trips are a great way to expose kids to new places all from the comfort of home. In this age of technology, so many museums, zoos and aquariums have set up virtual tours and webcams of their facilities.

I'm not going to lie, quarantine life isn't going exactly as I had imagined. But we are still managing to read at least 10 minutes a day, so that's something to be proud of right?!?!⁠ ⁠ Tell me, are you able to keep to your schedule that you had planned out or are you more like me and on the struggle bus a bit and just taking it day by day?⁠ ➖⁠ #motherhood #motherhoodrising #daughter #momlife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #mama #momminainteasy #momsbelike #motherhoodunited #motherhoodinspired #mamahood #momgoals #momlifestyle #stopdropandmom #justmomlife #wellwateredwomen #momsunite #momswag #momiform #magicofmotherhood #mommystatus #parentsbelike #parentproblems #parentinglife #beingamom #beingamomishard #MentalHealthAwareness #booksarekeepingussanerightnow

What Molded Me Into a Better Person

I don’t talk about it often, but when I was still in highschool I gave up a good portion of my adolescence to take care of my aunt who was like a second mother to me. I was living with my aunt and uncle full time to help my uncle take care of her. (It’s extremely hard to watch someone you love have no idea who you are), and the biggest lesson I learned from it is to not feel guilty about my own emotions throughout it all. If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know I have a passion for books, and one in series in particular is my favorite.

I know this is a difficult and very uncertain time in our lives right now, and I'll be the first to admit, I am taking a mental health break because of it all. ⁠ ⁠ Staying at home for the past month with no real release of being in the "outside world" is much harder than I expected it to be. ⁠ ⁠ I've turned to social media more than I probably should to feel some sort of resemblance to the outside world. If you're feeling down, overwhelmed, or just ALL the emotions you are not alone! ⁠ ⁠ You are amazing! You are staying at home, you are staying safe. ⁠ ⁠ But now, I want to challenge you guys to virtually reach out to your friends and loved ones as well by posting a similar photo and using the hashtags #TogetherAtHome #CalmCovid19 and #GlobalHighFive⁠ ⁠ @katiereese94 @musiccitymom and @barbells.and.diapers will you accept the challenge?⁠ ⁠ ⁠ If I didn't tag you, please still free to participate (if you'd like), and let me know so I can cheer you on! ⁠ ⁠ #stayathomemommy #realmotherhood #familyfirst #raisingthefuture #girlmamalife #momprobs #momminainteasy #mommyneedsabreak #lifewithlittles #thatmomlife #socialdistancingwithkids #covidparenting #socialdistancingwithkids #quarantinedwithkids #quarantineparenting #selfisolatingwithkids #familyisolation #keepingkidsbusy #selfisolationwithkids #keepingthekidsbusy #keepingsane #pandemicparenting #socialdistancingwithkids #isolationwithkids #isolationdiaries #notateacher #nmtcollabs
