Chasing Your Dreams

  I have always felt like I needed to be “doing something”.  Not that mothering is nothing to me, it’s just that I feel led to be doing other things as well. I have tried to push those feelings aside and just be content with where I am at.  But I have truly felt God […]

I Love My Doula

I know it has been nearly two years since the birth of our little twinsies, but this time of year brings out all the feels:  World Doula Week. The doula that attended the birth of our twins will always have a special place in my heart.  I cannot ever express the gratitude I have for […]

I don’t even know…

I sit here struggling to find any words to write.  At the same time, my head is spinning with all kinds of thoughts. I don’t know what to write, but I know I need to. My heart has been so weighed down.  Sometimes I feel like I can’t even breath.  Life is just weighing on me […]

You Have Purpose

Sometimes I feel as though I have lost much of myself throughout this season of motherhood.  But then I have moments that I feel like I have actually unveiled tiny pieces of my heart, moments that remind me that there is a reason and a season for each person and every trial I encounter. I never […]

It’s Breech Week

  With my first 2 pregnancies, I was blessed enough to not have any added stress or anxiety of a potential breech baby at the time of delivery.   My own concern of breech delivery came with my twin pregnancy, which of course increased the chances of having at least one of the babies presenting breech […]

Follow up on the Chore Struggle

  I posted a few weeks ago about having the kiddos help more with household chores, and I have to say, it has really been a struggle. I am very “type A” and everything has to be done a certain way.  I suck at delegating, because I don’t want something to not be “done right.”  It’s […]

Some Truth About Our “Big” Family

So, I want to go on this big rant about what not to say to/about “big families” and stay-at-home moms because it’s just super irritating and a lot of times hurtful.  But I’m not going to rant… I’m just going to “throw some truth” out there.   Throughout our family journey, we have faced many, many trials.  And […]

About that Cloth Life

We have used cloth with all of our kiddos.  And each experience has been different with each individual child. We ultimately began the whole cloth thing with our first, because we needed to cut costs on diapers.  We really had very little extra money, so this was definitely one way for us to make ends meet. […]

When Strength Falters

    When we look to ourselves for strength, we often find that we just don’t quite have enough.  The struggles and trials we are facing are just way too much for us, and we feel as if there is no possible way that we can get through this. And sometimes, we just want to […]

Back to Business as Usual A.K.A. Utter Chaos

We were so blessed to have my Momma visit for a long weekend.  And I was definitely spoiled with extra help and hands with my mini monsters adorable children. Alas, she has now left me to fend for myself, and today was a struggle.  After 4 “easy” days,  I found it very difficult to just […]
