#theeverymom

This session kicked off a four day weekend full of sessions. With six young kids, you can imagine that it had its moments of chaos, but it was also full of laughter and love. At one point during the session, I heard the mom say to her husband something along the lines of, "we are a mess." He endearingly responded, "yeah, but it's our mess." I think that simply and perfectly sums up being a family. One kid or ten kids, the 'mess' is what is beautiful and worth capturing. I absolutely loved working with this extraordinary family. . . Only 24 days left on island, and I can wait to serve the family of the New York north country!

Everything is rounder, wider and weirder. I’m out of breath all the time and could easily get a job as the creepy person calling someone and breathing into the phone in scary movies. It’s been twenty nine weeks of wondering who you will turn out to be tiny baby. While I know I’m going to get a whole lot rounder I welcome the waddle because it’s brining me closer to you.

Thrown for a (Froot) loop - more parenting pro-tips from tales of our family travel: when selecting a beach bag, be sure to get one that can adequately hold all of your kid's rocks, shells, their own garbage and, of course, other people's garbage they'll inevitably pick up. Pockets are your friend. Btw, our popular Froot Loops romper is back in stock, just in time for the holidays!

When seasons collide and it’s both Fall and Winter at once 😍🍂❄️ 🍁 Quick little after school toboggan since we got absolutely dumped with snow yesterday. Coming out of work at 3am with 15 centimetres on my car was interesting 😳 But it’s so so pretty. It’s been a crazy past week, so busy with work and kids and life, it may look on my feed like we’re always gallivanting through the forests calmly but I promise that’s not the case at all 😂 We try to get outdoors a lot though, at least one forest walk a week is ideal. Modern life moves fast but I’m intent on giving them as much of a classic childhood as I can. That definitely includes tobogganing ❄️🥰👌🏻🛷🥰

Let's make your night instantly better.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Let’s play a game!⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Wherever you are, make a quick list of one thing you’ve perceived with each of your five senses today that you’re thankful for! 💕⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ (I did this when I was sitting in Starbucks this afternoon) I am loving the smell of dark roast coffee brewing, the sight of children in knit hats begging for cake pops, and the sound of the coffee grinder. This morning I was so grateful for Eleanor sleeping in until 7 and the feel of my cozy bed for those extra 30 minutes. ⁣⁣⁣💤 ⁣⁣⁣ What’s on your list? 👇⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ photo: @meganmonsor

My school look. 😆 and I am not embarrassed by the shot. I like it. The nerd in me is very excited that look and feel good. Yes yes, I’m boosting about myself but why not? We all should. My self care nightly is telling myself what I liked about myself on the outside, so I pick a physical thing I liked and then I picked an internal thing I liked. Lately, as you all know, I am divorced and I literally could not answer my friends simple question, “what do you like?” I could not answer it. So this was my self-care. Finding me on the outside and in. . . . #momsquad #realmotherhood #motherhoodthroughig #lifeasamama #mommystatus #motherhoodjourney #motherhoodrising #messy_motherhood #mamaswithcameras #thingsiwanttoremember #rememberingthesedays #mamahoodinsquares #mymotherhood #momtographer #motherhoodisdarling #motherhoodrocks #heaventhroughmylens #lifewithlittles #mamahood #momslivinghappy #toddlermomlife #thatmomlife #dailymotherhood #rawmotherhood #candidmotherhood #honestparenting #theeverymom #mommasheart

I filmed a tutorial on this look today and posted it to my stories! ⠀ Also my ring light decided to work again after my video 🤣 how fun. ⠀ I attempted this new soap brow thing too and I’m not sure if I love it 🤷🏻‍♀️; have you tried soap brows?

Being a stay at home mom is not glamorous. Do I feel super lucky that I get to stay home with this little peanut? YES. Do I have days where I feel completely uninspired and worthless? YES. Today was one of them. Typically these days come when I don’t set any intentions for the day, spend too much time scrolling Instagram and can’t check enough off my to do list. Balancing being a blogger with being a mom is hard. Mornings are a blur between trying to get Tayler off to school by myself and feeding Joey, etc. I didn’t take a shower or do my regular skincare/makeup routine today which usually makes me feel a million times better. I also didn’t finish a blog post I had intended to wrap up. Nor did I get much sleep last night because I stayed up too late, resulting in me needing to take a nap. Why do we beat ourselves up like this? Mind you, these are all self inflicted things that I could have done differently to make my day better. So when Wes got home from work I decided to throw on my workout clothes and go for a run. It was dark, cold and I hadn’t been running in almost a year, but let me tell you, it felt AMAZING! Now I’m going shower + wash this disgusting hair of mine and that might just be my second victory of the day. Moral of the story mamas, do something for YOU today. I promise you’ll feel better. . . . #motherhoodunfiltered #myunfilteredeveryday #myunfilteredreality #theeverymom #thehonestcapture #thehonestmom #honestmom #honestmoments #sahmlife #wahmstyle #sahmstyle #honestmotherhood #raisinggirls #momsofinstagram #joyfulmamas #motherhoodrising #sharetheeverymom

Raise your hand if you feel unsure if your should use a nightlight in your little ones room. 🙋🏻‍♀️ . . . I’m here to let you know it’s okay to use a nightlight, especially if your little one is showing fear of the dark. . . . There are however a few guidelines to follow: . . . 1) keep the light dim, you don’t want it to be too bright . . . 2) avoid bright white and/or blue light, as they disrupt Melatonin production. Instead use warm colors for example, yellow, orange or red . . . @hatchnursery has an awesome product that can be used for a nightlight, sound machine, and okay to wake clock. You can control it from your phone which is an added bonus! . . . Questions about nightlights?

I am officially board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry! Its been a few weeks since I got the news and I’m finally coming around being open and telling the world that I am really proud of myself for this accomplishment! I doubted myself a lot after signing up and thought to myself how was I going to study for this exam with a newborn? Well let me tell you how I did it 1️⃣A strong foundation from my amazing pediatric residency program at USC 2️⃣My supportive husband who completely took ovey baby duty so I could focus while studying and who always believed I could 3️⃣ My co-residents Bora and Christina. We studied via video chat (Zoom) several times a week for 3 months which was super helpful since our exam was an oral exam. We create a study schedule and took turns discussing topics and tested each other a lot. They put up with all that came with studying with a newborn and never complained once 4️⃣ My baby boy kept me motivated because I did not want to have to go through this again. We tried our best to keep him on a regular schedule so that I could study while he was asleep and it worked out well for the most part 5️⃣ Support from all of my insta friends. I told everyone and brought you along this journey and It held me accountable. Thank you! If you are struggling with overcoming something, know that you can do it. Find the right support system, write down your goals and hold yourself accountable. You’ll be so happy when it’s over! . . . #boardcertified #pediatricdentist #womenindentistry #predent #teething #oralhealth #femaledoctor #theeverygirl #pediatrics #maternity #momlife #mommylife #theeverymom #firsttimemom #latinamom #mommyandme #ig_motherood #momsofinstagram #momsandmamas #ThePedsDentist #ThePedsDentistTips

It’s currently 18 degrees in Minnesota - so this is where you’ll find Will and I until spring 🙌🏻🔥 We had the best time hanging with @heatnglofireplaces today talking about our fireplace renovation. Definitely one of our favorite projects to date! Now I’m just trying to hold off on decking this mantle out with some garland. It’s not too soon, right?

✨SPARKLE✨ What does that word mean to you?? It can mean a lot of things. In this picture, if using a direct interpretation it would describe my outfit...from my sparkly headband down to the little bit of sparkle in my shoes . But that's not what I'm referring to in this caption. When I use the word sparkle to describe this photo it means so much more. It's a feeling I was having. A moment in time where I was completely filled with happiness, gratitude, and an overwhelming sense of love . I drove six hours into town to make it to a dinner that had been planned to honor baby boy. I had friends and family that drove longer distances than me and flew from further places just to be here with me to celebrate this special moment happening in my life . Earlier that day I had been completely frustrated. I didn't leave until the day of because Friday I was sick and tired and didn't want to make the trek. So instead, woke up at 4 am Saturday ready to grab some @starbucks and hit the road. After about an hour of driving I realized I hadn't taken Elzie's car seat out for my husband Mark to have, since he was staying behind and watching her for the weekend. Then the dilemma...do I turn around or keep going?? Of course I chose to turn around for fear of something awful happening and Mark being stranded without a way to transport her . In doing so I added on an extra two hours to my trip and obviously cried in my car on the drive about three or four times out of frustration, exhaustion, tiredness, and whatever other emotions crept in. I was certain this was just the worst day and questioned whether the dinner was worth the trouble . To answer it was and always is. Find the people that add sparkle to your life. They are the ones that will continue to make it shine and turn those bad days into memories you will never forget and forever be grateful for. I just hope I bring the same kind of sparkle to them . . . #sprinkle #calvinjames #mom #truth #outfitreveal #motherhoodrising #zara #fallstyle #babygirl #smile #family #love #sparkle #glitter #instadaily #instagood #blog #blogger #photooftheday #potd #ootd #sheinspires #flashesofdelight #mom #momblog #theeverygirl #theeverymom

Happy Transformation Tuesday!! In two months I will be entering my final year of my 30s!! 😳 I will say that looking back I would’ve never thought I’d be in better shape, be eating better & actually wanting to workout as much as I do now!!💪🏻 Pic on the left is me in my 20s vs. me now ....what a difference you can make when you stop eating late night and enjoying those 🍹🍷 every night ! Those college days can do a number on you 😉! - Every year I get older I use that as motivation to keep doing what I’m doing!! I feel hundred times better than I ever did in my 20s!! 🙌🏻 And if you can’t do it for YOU , do it for those that love you💗 .... I’ve learned along the way in order to keep up with my crazy kiddos and to stay sane I have to show up for ME! - 👉🏻49 days left of the year !!!👈🏻 It doesn’t have to be ONE drastic change , you don’t have to give everything up .... small changes over time will get you to those big results — it just takes time & consistency! IF you could make ONE small change in your fitness or nutrition what would it be??
