I love the different types of love baby Noni has for each of his big brothers. This type of love is special because they only spend time together in the weekends after a week at boarding school for our two big boys. I remember the boys being concerned he wouldn’t remember them as they were away all week. But pictures like this paint a thousand words. #bigbrother #family #blendedfamilies #blendedfamily #mumofboys #brothers #brotherlove

Have you ever been told you can back down from a goal — but you’re determined to push through?
‍️
I’ve been a goal setter for a long time. I believe writing them down helps us get them done. I wrote down my goal to get an M.A. for years while raising kids on my own — and got it done.

Right now, I’m writing ‘I workout several times a week’ in my @thestarttodaybrand journal. Or committed to 30 minutes of exercise a day this month, to work towards and hour by the end of the year. (an hour is my doctor’s recommendation)
‍️
Imagine my surprise when my nifty new activity tracker told me I didn’t reach my goal consistently and suggested I scale back. Here’s the thing I knew and it didn’t:
▫️I fell in a hole in my yard and lightly twisted BOTH ankles and a knee. 🤦‍️ I took it easy for two days on purpose.
▫️I felt crummy from not getting enough exercise.
▫️I was about to get back on campus for classes which gives me lots of opportunities to walk.
▫️I am determined to improve my health and know the steps I need to get there.
🥰
So...instead of backing down — I set the goal a little higher! And I kept writing the goal and getting up early to go to the gym — I’ve been consistently hitting the goal.

Ladies and gents — we can do hard things. Fitness, education, hobbies, mental health care, time with our kids and stepkids — there is time for these things if we make it. We can improve our situation if we stick with it and push on through. 
And I gotta say, the 30-minutes at the gym helps me start the day in a way I feel successful before anyone in my house is even out of bed!
Gotta get moving!

What is a goal you are working on? Let’s encourage each other!

I think I'm officially done. No matter what I do it's never enough. I dont have it in me to deal with my ss13. He is your typical teenager except even when I dont say or do anything it's my fault. For example. 2 weeks ago my ss was suppose to stay with us for the week. Go to his moms for 2 days and then with us again for 2 weeks. When he left he said it was because he ran out of data and something new with fortnite came out. The day he left I was sick and spent the time he was awake I was sleeping and puking. By the time I got up and was feeling a little better my fh ask me to take ss13 with me and grab dinner. We went to get subs we laughed we joked. We dropped dinner off to his dad at work and then went back to the trailer. At this point he told me he was going home and his dad already knows... fast track to today... apparently I said something to him that made him cry and that's why he went home. First off.. he woke up while I was outside and he stayed inside. He finally came outAnd I saw him. I told him his dad will be back soon and he could go hangout with him if he wanted. And he said okay I'll wait inside for him. By the time my fh came back I wasnt feeling good and ss was in his room. Fh told me to go lay down and I did. Ss and I didnt talk because he was in his room. Nothing was said AT ALL. I didnt have to give him trouble. He didnt ask me anything that I said no to. In fact when we went to get subs I even told him he could get a combo even though his dad said just subs because we have everything to snack and drink. But now all of a sudden it's my fault. Yesterday fh and i got into a fight because ss said he picked up all his clothes on the floor. I told him how awesome he was and how much I appreciated that he did it without being told. Then I go in his room and yes he did clean up the clothes on the ground.. because he threw them all on the bed. So I asked ss to go clean them up. He did it with attitude and I let it go because hes a teenager. And I go In his room to close a window before we leave and he cleaned  1 of the 5 clothing off his....

Our latest podcast episode is up on our YouTube channel (link in bio) and also on your favorite podcasting site!

This episode is a mixed bag; we tackled A LOT!  Social media has been a great way to connect with other #blendedfamilies and find out what hot topics people are looking for subject matter on.  This is exactly how we decided to talk about #parallelparenting versus #coparenting and #finances in a #blendedfamily.  We even got pulled into a discussion of #childsupport during our live recording, which was super interesting.  We never really discuss our points of view beforehand, and on this episode you can tell as things get a tad real and a little heated lol.  A lot of blended family's are set up right off the bat to have parallel parenting between significant others where it him and his and her and hers and each parent their own.  It takes a real effort to actually blend into having cohesive and complimentary #parentingstyles.  Getting on the same page is no joke.  Same thing goes with finances.  Blended family's usually start out with two financially established individuals who have to figure out how to commingle funds.  The question is to join, or not to join (bank accounts that is)? In this podcast we tell you what works for us and why.  We also discuss if we would do it differently.  Speaking of funds, it was a natural progression to dip our toes in the child support topic...eeek.  There's no happy or good answer when it comes to that subject.  There's a lot to digest, so we hope you are hungry for what we got!  Enjoy!

Hey Mamas! I think it’s about time I introduce you to my other half, my best friend, and honest to God soul mate, Christina (on the left for those who are new to the page). •

Christina and I met and became friends in middle school. While we remained as such for many years, it wasn’t until our early 20s that we reconnected and realized there was a little somethin’ somethin’ that we hadn’t noticed before... Okay, you caught me. I actually had a HUGE crush on her in high school but it wasn’t mutual. Don’t worry, I’m over it. •

Anyway, I was living in DC and she was still in San Antonio where we both grew up. We hadn’t talked in years but one night I had a dream about her. Naturally, I texted her the next day to tell her about it (no, it wasn’t a dirty dream) and before I knew it, she’d invited me to come visit her in San Antonio. Oh, and I forgot to mention - she had a one and a half year old that I’d obviously seen in pictures but hadn’t met. •

I was scared, I was uncertain, but I was also intrigued. So with a million questions and enough curiosity, I booked a flight to San Antonio that forever changed me life. To be continued... .

What is a rainbow baby?

A ‘rainbow baby’ is a baby that is born following the loss of another baby. In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow does not negate the storm, but acknowledges it and creates something beautiful. Storm clouds still might be overhead as the family continues to cope with the loss, but something colorful and bright has emerged from the darkness. ️🧡#NationalRainbowBabyDay

The emotional toll of an IEP meeting is real. I spent ten years sitting on the teacher side of the IEP table and now eight years on the parent side.... the parent side is heavy.  It is this messy blend of hopeful optimism, anger, defeat, stress, appreciation, and relief. My nerves kick into extreme high gear 48 hours prior to the meeting and my body feels extreme mental and emotional fatigue 48 hours following the meeting. I walk into the conference wearing invisible boxing gloves, ready to fight it out for my child’s needs, but half way through the gloves come off and tissues now fill my hands. Tissues soaking wet with hefty tears. There is no deep breath like the one that comes once I climb back into my car, meeting over, alone in my silent thoughts. For today the weight from the bricks that have settled on my shoulders over the past nine months has been lifted. However, I fear that come Monday the bricks will be back, this time heavier, breaking my shoulders because it is the first day of school. The fear that comes with the first day of school and my special needs child is real. It is devastatingly, disturbingly, real. Tonight I will sleep, in the morning I will pray and on Monday I will hope.

Family Dates are our favorite. Today we laid Husbands Grandma to rest. It was a bittersweet day. Both Husband and I have lost our last living grandparent this month.

We hiked in the smokies last weekend, spent some time in the hot tub relaxing and just generally had an awesome weekend hanging out together. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This hike was so fun, we hiked out to a waterfall and then back. The kids were troopers although I had to carry John Mark part of the way back. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The second picture is from last May. I still loved hiking but it was always such a challenge. We took lots of breaks, I struggled at times being so out of shape and I certainly couldn’t carry John Mark. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In 2018 I made my health a priority so I could be a better mama, wife, Doctor, friend and not sit on the sidelines while my children played around me. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Working out daily, making mostly heathy nutrition choices and chugging water like it’s my second job is not always easy but neither is being overweight, tired all the time and watching from the sidelines. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So I say to you, and remind myself daily it’s not always easy but it’s 100% always worth it.

Pt. 2

through every obstacle, every tear, every moment of not knowing. I'll trust Him because He is the creator of my life and He is the only one who knows my beginning and ending. 
The battle is never yours, it's always the Lord's. He just wants to know how dedicated you are to Him. Do you bend and shake when things aren't going your way? Will you deny Him over small mishaps or will you hold firm to who He is?

Pt. 1
God finds the most unremarkable ways of communicating with me. That's why I tell people to not let church people pull them from their one on one relationship with God. Going to a building or not going doesn't dictate whether or not you'll make it to the Kingdom.

As most of you know this past month or I could say 5-months have been very challenging for me mentally. Ive spent many days battling the thoughts of failure in my mind. Failure as a mother. Failure as a wife. Failure as a daughter. Failure as a professional.  The thought of getting older and not moving scared the crap of out me. I'd cry, but still kept praying through my tears. I'd get mad and still talk to my Daddy like He was right there. I probably even threw a few tantrums. Even though I felt confused and stuck in position I kept telling God I trust you. That small phrase seemed to be the staple of my daily conversations. I wanted God to know even though I was in a bad place I still would praise Him, trust Him, and walk around with a grateful spirit. I still let Him know that I wanted specific things in my life. I let Him know that even though I didn't see it I knew He wouldn't leave me to the wolves. I'm a child of a King so it's not His plan for me to suffer especially when my works are not dead. 
Today as I was coming home from all my errands I stepped out the car and saw this bright beautiful rainbow. I instantly knew that God was telling me ever promise He has placed for my life WILL BE MINE. I knew that the sign of this rainbow was confirmation that I passed the test. The test He was brewing in my life the pass couple of months was about to be over. He was going to start blessing me with those promises. Now I don't know how long they'll last before my next test but what I do know is that I'll continue to trust Him

Pt. 1 God finds the most unremarkable ways of communicating with me. That's why I tell people to not let "church people" pull them from their one on one relationship with God. Going to a building or not going doesn't dictate whether or not you'll mak

4 babies on earth, 1 in heaven. It’s #NationalRainbowBabyDay, and while it’s been a very long time since my first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage at 10.5 weeks, I consider each of these girls a rainbow.

Every single pregnancy since, I’ve been scared to get my hopes up until the second trimester, at least two ultrasounds, and usually feeling kicks. When you lose a baby you’re carrying, you never again get to feel that carefree attitude that miscarriage is something that happens, of course ... but not to you.

The fact that I lost my first baby has added a fair amount of worry to the four pregnancies since, but it’s also added so much gratitude, and reminds me to live in the moment. To choose joy over fear, and to be present over being anxious. Yes, bad things happen, and they’ve happened to me, and may happen again. But I’m going to enjoy this moment with this child for as long as I have it. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” - Jeremiah 29:11

God is good ... all the time. #TheSecondChanceFamily

#ad Do you have routines for your kids? Back to school used to be a tough battle until we implemented routines into our kids daily lives. Now having them on a daily schedule lets them know exactly what to expect and the battles we used to have over bedtime have pretty much disappeared. But with it being Alani’s first year in school, it’s all pretty new to her. .
.
Peppa Pig has everything you need to make transitions easy. From bath time essentials, to homework space makeovers, to lunch box items and backpacks, Alani has loved every part of her new routine. She’s obsessed with Peppa Pig and I love that their storylines help children to understand new emotions and experiences that they may encounter growing up. Swipe up on my stories to check out Peppa’s “My First Album” to have a dance party when the homework is all done️ #PeppaPig @officialpeppa

Today we had such a great day exploring Weeki Wachee Springs.
.

We watched the mermaids, took a boat tour, went swimming in the spring, played on the play ground and of course finished our outing with some ice cream! .

Today has me filled to the brim. I’m reminded constantly how quickly she’s growing up, today we witnessed it. I have so many mixed emotions, but overall I’m so very thankful for these moments. .
Don’t forget to stay present, nothing lasts forever... especially at this stage. Hold your babies close, I sure will be tonight. ️

Even thought being a mama to 3 kids and a bonus baby is hard almost every night.. I’m so blessed that these two girls are so smart. Some of this third grade homework is no joke! Mama needs to take some math classes all over again just to keep up with them

It's been one of those funny days.
You know, the kind where you bump your head sneezing and later spill your coffee in your car on the way to a client.

Well, when you let go of what does not feed your soul or give you life, you leave a lot of room for love.

After a long day my #swolemate
And my #bonusbabe
Surprised me with beautiful flowers, a freshly cleaned home, and coffee!

This is the great love I stumbled upon while becoming all I set out to be.

Going on from my girl @mothering_it discussion on ‘broken’ families. .
.
We too came from a ‘broken’ family, but does that mean were any less?! No it doesn’t. .
.
We all miss the eldest two like mad when they go to their dads house at the weekend even though it’s just for a day. It’s a little less chaotic and a little less messy, but there’s always that emptiness without them especially for the little ones. .
.
But I to aswell as my eldest girls had two families growing up, I had a step mum and a step dad but that doesn’t make us wrong. I gained a sis and bro through my dad remarrying. .
.
And in all honesty I felt it just means more people to love you, more people to share memories with, and more people to call family 
.
.
Don’t get me wrong it’s hard at times real hard!! But you know what as crazy as we maybe, I wouldn’t change my blended family for the world! .
