Does this look dreamy and peaceful? I was. For five minutes. Basically the beach with two little ones solo is peace and contentment in patches between deep breathing and sand everywhere and whining and burning toddler feet and lugging some fifty combined pounds of children over fiery hot sand. In between—this. And a toddler saying minimum 100 times an hour “ I love you mom. I Supah supah supah love you.” Beaching it. Worth it? Still deciding. But probably. -

One of us sleeps a lot. One of us sleeps a medium amount. One of us sleeps a little. I’ll let you guess who is who...lets just say the amounts don’t match our sizes. The medium one sleeps a lot, the little sleeps a medium amount, and the biggest one...well I’m sleeping better since I’ve been doing it on this @leesasleeps mattress. And even though sleeping in is now 7:30, it’s ok. The snuggles with these two are pretty comfy too. #leesasleep

Today was a good day. Every night, I ask Redmond what his favorite part of the day was. Usually it’s whatever we had for dinner...but today he said, “goin to the candy store. And gettin dat big wollypop. And goin to da beach. And playin outside. What was your favwite part mama?” So suffice to say we had a REALLY good day. Which I was due for. I’ve been caught UP in stress that I can’t even pinpoint, and today I tried to let things go slower and indulge in just being. Naps were a little late. Dinner was late. But it was worth it. -

This is how we feel about summer finally being here. Well. This is how I feel about it anyway. Are you a hot weather person or cold? I LOVE being hot because I grew up in thailand which means I even like humidity. Which we have plenty of here in NH. Summer over winter ALWAYS.

Summer is coming because we are wearing our fruits and veggies and eating them too. And Redmond is informing me SEVERAL times daily that his feet are hot. Which just makes me think about how gosh darn stinky my future is. Because boys are so. stinky.
Laurie’s romper came in his @freshlittlelove subscription box and is being shipped in their boys summer boxes (size 0-18 months). It’s so soft and SO ADORABLE I want it in my size. And you know I’d wear it. -

(Disclaimer: No I am not pregnant but yes Redmond does like kissing my belly still even though Laurie is out in the world.)
I am holding my boys close today. As the waves of bad news overtook the radio show I listen to—Another school shooting. Another day where our hearts are heavy. Another event that reminds us that WE NEED TO BE PRESENT. There needs to be change. I look at my boys and think—let me be the kind of mother that raises them to be GOOD men. But may I also not sit idly by and be distracted by ALL THE EMPTY THINGS that keep us silent. My mother raised me to be a good woman too and a strong woman. Enough is enough.

Weekly fancy house photo. Weekly Redmond upstaging me with his poses. Weekly what even is New England doing with its weather. Yesterday Redmond was his dream toddler self. Today he was 👹👹status. So I have mom whiplash. And weather whiplash. Just all the whiplash. -

I am pretty sure the only thing he loves more than guacamole is me (and mamas milk). Also I could eat Mexican food every single day and never get tired of it. Also margaritas. Always margaritas. Red calls this joint his “favowite pwace” and it’s mine too. #nachosfordays -

#sponsored Sometimes I put on make up and a real outfit just to pretend like I’m not a hot mess. I pretend that there aren’t piles of dishes to wash and laundry to fold and dog hair to sweep. I put my kids in the car or the stroller and I very honestly escape. Not because I don’t love my home or because I “can’t handle it” but because these things so often pull me away from my children in ways I don’t want to be pulled away. The reality is, the dishes will be there when they are napping or asleep. I don’t want them to remember me JUST cleaning or JUST stressing about the house. I want them to remember me as a woman with foibles and weaknesses but a mother with never ending love. Our name is mama. #HowIMama #TaliGillette #mamanecklace @TaliGilletteJewelry

The first photo that Redmond helped take. He just held the phone....while it was on auto take...because he’s not allowed to touch mommies phone...but still. To him it definitely counted and BOY was he impressed with himself. He needs to keep working on his skills because currently the tripod I use (I take all photos with my phone) is legit held together with rubber bands and twist ties.
Happy Mother’s day eve! May your coffee be strong, your cocktails be sweet, and may someone else make dinner. What are your weekend plans? Mine involve grocery shopping, laundry, and meal prep so yeah, LOTS OF LUXURY is what I’m saying.
