Life has gotten even crazier than our usual brand of cray and lately I feel like a cross between a chicken with my head cut off and a ping pong ball πŸ˜œπŸ™ƒπŸ˜¬. I'm not in this space as much lately but I just wanted to pop in and say hi πŸ‘‹πŸΌ. Quincy's new word is "no" but he says it to everything and with a smile so it's pretty damn cute. And this morning Calvin called me his best friend β€οΈπŸ’” And Charlie has hit this new mature helper stage that is pretty much the best kid ever 95% of the time. So despite the crazy, there's a lot of good stuff happening. And, THIS ☝🏼. Pretty much 24/7.

Insta deleted my caption. But did I really need one?

You are a beautiful example of what a father is supposed to be. You're the piggyback giver, the dance party starter, the game player, the adventure seeker. You are the one who coaches his son's baseball team even when his son decides he hates baseball and is torture to coach. You are the one who gives his all even when we make it really hard. What you lack in culinary skills you make up for in the dedication and unconditional love you give to your family each day. We are beyond lucky to have you @jonathanfredrickofficial - me most of all. It doesn't hurt that you're an OG #dilfsofdisneyland either πŸ”₯. There is no one else I would want to be immersed deep into this chaos we call parenthood with. Thank you for all that you do, seen and unseen. Love love love you ❀️ Happy Father's Day to all of the other daddies out there dancing and trying and loving your way through each day πŸ™Œ

Wishing I could climb in and snuggle up with him. Naptime is the best time πŸ™Œ

Every day I will try my best to earn the love and forgiveness you give me each day. And on the days I don't (like today) I promise to do better tomorrow. (Also, if you need a boost, zoom in on Calvin's face ❀️❀️❀️) #thefredrickboys

Oh Quincy-Q, baby I love you. And that crooked little smile too. β˜€οΈ

So I've been wanting to say this for a while but it is something I would like to say in 3 different ways, depending on whether you are a follower, a fellow blogger/IG'er, or a brand or PR person for a brand. So I thought I would put it out there and open it up to questions and then do a bigger blog post on the topic. So, here goes:

This whole blogging/"influencer" (I hate that word but it is what it is) thing is tricky. Brands get a lot of value from us, but they don't often "have a budget" to pay for that value. And many IG'ers undervalue themselves.

On another hand, lots of people follow these bloggers and find tips, products, etc from them. We share bits of our lives and give a lot of our time to writing posts, creating and photographing DIYs and recipes and sharing product sources, etc. And then, we are often criticized or judged if we get paid for that time. (I haven't experienced this much but I've seen others get a lot of negative response from sponsored content). I'm not saying everyone asks us to work for free or everyone judges us for getting paid. But both happen. I get at least 30 emails a day asking me to partner with a brand. I take time to respond (usually to a PR rep that I'm sure isn't working for free) with my rates. And then, probably 7 times out of 10, I'm told "the brand doesn't have a budget for promotions right now, but..." followed by a request to do it for free or for product. And usually that product is valued under $100. Frequently under $20. Yesterday I had a brand offer product that costs $19 "in exchange" for a post AFTER I quoted my rates. Honestly, I was insulted. And I'm frustrated.

I just feel like a lot of people feel entitled to what we as bloggers do or act like it has no value or it isn't a job. And I'm wondering why that is.

To my fellow influencers: know your value and stop working for free (or low value product). And if you follow those bloggers, please don't criticize them for trying to earn money for their time. Brands: start allocating part of your budget for micro-influencing and don't reach out if you aren't prepared to pay for our services.

Also, peonies to balance out the rant β˜πŸΌπŸ’–

Today on ohlovelyday.com: An open letter to the partners of women suffering from postpartum anxiety and depression. Or if you don't know if she is but you think she lashes out "for no reason." Or cries a lot "for no reason." Or loses it "for no reason." Or seems overwhelmed by small things. There is a reason, and hopefully this will help you to understand that it isn't her fault, it isn't a choice, it isn't personal, and she needs your support.
Direct link in profile -- I'd love to have this open up a dialogue that isn't had enough, so please leave your own experiences and tips here or as a comment on the blog post. β€’

When my oldest was born I was determined to make my own baby food from scratch. But one butternut squash in and I started seriously dreading food prep day. I mean, those things are the toddler of the fruit and veggie family - tough and uncooperative! This time around I just do my best but rely on things that make food-prep super easy. With a @thistle.baby subscription box I'm sent all of the ingredients (including seasoning!) already washed, chopped, and ready to be cooked. They even include recipes and easy-to-follow instructions. And if your baby is beyond the purΓ©e stage you can prep the ingredients and serve as finger food. Making your own baby food has never been so easy πŸ™Œ And new customers get 30% off their first order - so head to thistle.co/baby to check them out for yourself.

When I look at this photo I know two things for sure: I am really going to miss these snugly nursing cuddle naps when they are gone. ❀️ And I desperately need my roots highlighted πŸ™ˆ#momlifeinanutshell #battlefieldmotherhood β€’
