Happy first official day of fall! 🍂🍃 . If you didn't look at my stories yesterday, you wouldn't know how rough of a day we had. Madi has been sick with another cold and pretty miserable. We luckily made it through one hour of church and got a short nap in. We decided to take a drive up the canyon to see if she would fall asleep on the car, but she ended up crying most of the way. So we came back home. We were all pretty buggy and just couldn't find anything to help her. I was a little bummed because it was not the first birthday I had thought it would be for her. Once we got her ready for bed and gave her a bottle, she calmed down. We even got a smile and some giggles out of her. She went to bed really quick and slept the whole night! 🙌 Today has been a much better day! . So for all you mommas out there, if you are struggling, I see you. I see how hard your are trying. I see those tired eyes. I see how hard you are working. I see that feeling of defeat. I see how overwhelmed you feel. I see you trying to tackle those every day tasks. I see you loving your babies with all your heart I see you giving them your all, even when you feel like you have nothing else to give. I see you compare yourself to all the other moms who look like they have it all together. I see you. . If you've stuck with me to read all of this, I just want to tell you that you can get through whatever it is that feels tough and numbing. Close your eyes and say something positive that you did today. Even if it's only one thing. Encourage yourself. You are not alone and you never will be. You are a great mom. You are amazing. Don't give up. It's okay to have bad days. You are the best mom for those little ones. You are strong. It's going to be okay. If you ever need help, call me! Send me a text. I am here for you! It's okay to take a break and ask for help! . So if you feel defeated today, I am with you. But, don't forget that tomorrow is a new day. ❤️ . . . .
Back to the weekend soft play and a photo of my favourite two 🥰. Little miss has been an absolute delight since being picked up from nursery today... who else guesses that it’s due to the fact that they actually gave her two naps today (apparently 40 minutes all day was the one last Tuesday) and she slept through last night for the first time in over six months? 😂 please keep your fingers, toes and every other body part crossed for us tonight.
I’ve got some serious weekend blues, but I’ve managed to cheer myself up by looking at all the amazing things we’ve been gifted from extremely generous brands.

#whenolliesmiles Nada como una mañana de domingo en el parque - 09.22.2019 En realidad salimos a hacer unas cosas que teníamos pendiente ... y el día estaba tan lindo y los chicos cansados de estar en el auto que decidimos parar en un parquecito. Ni bien me baje del auto me sentí en Argentina! No es re loco?! Como las imágenes, los olores, los sonidos te pueden transportar instantáneamente?! Y si a eso le sumas Nate + Wes pateando la ⚽️ ... listo! Estoy en casa🇦🇷 Les pasa? O estoy loca jajaja 🤷🏻♀️🤣
