The love i have for this child is overwhelming!!!!
I get asked how i do it all like workout, cook, clean, work, take care of him, etc. To be honest, i don’t always do it all. Heck, a lot of things get pushed aside. Gray is #1, then comes my pups, my clients, and everything else is when I get to it. That means the house is a mess most of the time. My personal creative projects don’t come first. And that’s ok. It’s hard and can be overwhelming at Times, but I just do the best I can. Being a SAHM is hard work, and then trying to work on top of that seems almost impossible sometimes 😩😂
As for working out and eating healthy though, that is a hugeeee priority to me. And IMO, that is the farthest thing from selfish. Working out makes me a better mother because i feel better, it relieves stress, it’s my “me time” where i get an hour to myself which i need, etc. taking care of myself first means i will take better care of Grayson. If i have little sleep, no alone time, anxiety through the roof, I’m unhappy, then obviously i won’t be my best around Gray. I want to be healthy, lively, happy, well rested, and low stress when I’m around him. Kids pick up on energy, so i try not to get stressed or impatient, although it does happen sometimes let’s be real. Kids also absorb everything around them, so being an example for Gray is important to me. Staying healthy and taking care of myself will show him that it’s important, too. Eating nutritious foods sets him up for a healthier life and a wider palette. I want to show him that staying active is important for physical and mental health.
Also.... Grayson’s gains are better than all of us 🤷🏼♀️
