MOST RECENT

What do you tend to feel most mom guilt about?
.
For me, it is when I haven't planned well enough - I usually am an overplanner, so when I don't bring enough food or didn't get home in time for nap or forget to pack sippy cup (ALWAYS), I feel like I dropped the ball.

This picture is from his first birthday party, and I thought I had planned pretty well until I ended up forgetting extra diapers! We made it through and the not-planned-enough guilt wasn't needed!
#nomoremomguilt

Mom guilt is like a whole new category of emotion that I never knew about before. Sometimes by the end of the day I am racked with guilt about all the things I should've done differently.

But it doesn't have to be that way... Read more in this week's blog

#nomoremomguilt

Mom Guilt is a LIE.⠀

I had a HUGE wave of mom-guilt hit me, and was paralyzed by it. ⠀

My kids wanted me to come play, but I had to cook dinner.⠀
One is super clingy, but I had work tasks that had to be done.⠀
The other is begging me to come outside, but I have to settle a bill on the phone.⠀

Whether you work from home, work outside the home, or do all the work at home (SAHMs I see you), you WILL experience mom-guilt. You’re a mom and Satan hates you. It’s gonna happen.⠀

3 things that help me overcome this Mom-Guilt struggle!⠀

1. Remember the ALTERNATIVE.⠀

For me that would be having to work away from home, so while I may feel the tug of war to spend every waking moment with my kids, at least I get to be the one to do school pick up and drop off, be home for sick days and snow days, and have pockets of quality time with them during my day. I could be working long hours, commuting, and paying for before/after school care, daycare, etc. and barely seeing them during the week.⠀

2. Remember what you are MODELING.⠀

You are raising up strong, confident, independent God-worshipers! And we all know that they catch more from what they see than any rant we deliver. So, show them healthy boundaries, strong work ethic, and diligence as they pursue the things they are passionate about and learn to overcome difficult challenges in life. Oh, and how to clean up after themselves. We should show them that too!⠀

3. Remember where “guilt” comes from.⠀

We inherited guilt from Adam. It’s in our body’s DNA all the way back to the fall. God didn’t design us to live in that or for that to be our key motivator in life. In fact, all of Scripture points to a motivator of LOVE. Obedience in life should be a response to the grace and love we have received, not out of duty or obligation. Decisions made from duty or obligation are never in alignment with God’s divine design for our lives. ⠀

Momma, live according to the values God has set in your heart, the drive in your spirit, in line with the unique calling you have to glorify God with your life. Involve your kids, show, teach, and invite them in NOW so that in 20/30 yrs, it’s not even a question for them!

Truer words have never been spoken. As I was shoveling my Greek yogurt, chia granola, and strawberries in my mouth (while I have to fight my daughter to sit still and eat one more bit of her waffle) I was feeling some guilt. I was thinking about how maybe I could be doing some things better.
Like I should have stayed up last night and folded all the laundry #thereissomuchlaundry
I should have cleaned the living up this morning #my3yearoldisamess
Or I definitely should have combed the massive knot in her hair out after her bath yesterday. (I just threw it in a bun instead😂) But then I decided I’m not going to beat myself up #nomomguilthere
My kids are happy and feed, I am happy, and I think my husband is pretty happy too😂

So bottom line do what you can, do what makes your family happy, don’t compare yourself to other moms. Stop thinking your screwing it up. Because if your thinking that then you care, and you are working hard to be a amazing mom. #nomoremomguilt #yourdoinggreat #maybeishouldbrushherhair

// i have been holding this picture for nine months and fear of posting but something happened yesterday and I’m ready to share // real talk: this might just look like a bathing suit picture that someone posts to be all "look at me" but it's not. this is me being happy about where I'm at at this point in my life. are there things I want to change? Yes. Am I working on them? Absolutely. Do I struggle daily with my self image and confidence? Absolutely. BUT, back in december 2016 I decided that I was committing this year to ME. 2017 was the year of ME. 2018 I have dedicated to #LevelingUp. I’m doing all the things I've neglected the past couple of years to make time for myself again. regardless of how happy I am with the outside and what people can "see" here's what this body has really been through: appendectomy at 9YO, two screws in my left ankle at 15, tonsils out at 18, sinus surgery at 25, cyst removal from wrist at 28, gallbladder out at 32, cesarean at 30 (gained 50# and spent 9 weeks on bed rest to make it to that day and was in a car accident at 31wks), miscarriage at 31, failed VBAC and emergent cesarean at 32 (gained 55# while crosfitting 3xweek to 35wks to have that sweet baby) and a couple more other not so fun things. My body has been through a lot and even when i'm not happy with it and feel like it's letting me down, it's not. every day I wake up and get to kiss my babies. every day i wake up and get to move my body and experience life. a lot of people don't get to do that and for those things and so much more I am so thankful to my body. #NoMoreMomGuilt #NoMoreMeGuilt #StrongLikeHer #BeTheChangeYouWant #YesICan #RideTribe #KeepAustinFit #AustinFitness #KeepAustinWeird #OwnIt #ThatsDarling #AllTheFeels #FeelingVulnerable #LevelUp2018 @my_darling_diary

We all know that “mom guilt” feeling. Our goal is to banish those two words forever! As mothers it often feels like we collect all the ways to feel guilty about every little thing - anyone else with us? #nomoremomguilt

Life gets busy and it can be hard to carve time out for you and for Him.
Today- I took the kids to play and I got some quality time with Him for me!! And I don’t feel one bit guilty, I feel refreshed and empowered!

Probably one of the hardest part of being a twin mom and especially breastfeeding is getting sufficient and quality rest. Its been difficult for me however I think my babies are ‘easy’ babies. I try to keep everything into perspective and be thankful that I’ve never has colicky babies, they go to sleep with relative ease. Self-care for me involves lots of naps, I do it as often as possible. I used to be a ‘guilty napper’, not allowing my brain to shut off and constantly thinking about so much needing to be done didn’t give me any rest. On this particular day my stepdaughter saw that I couldn’t keep my eyes open after nursing. She took both babies to her room and played with them for two hours, I was able to take a GLORIOUS two-hour nap. It was the best self-care I could have given myself. It was the best gift my stepdaughter could have given me.

When my alarm went off at 4:40 🚨my first thought was “I don’t want to work out”. Not I don’t want to wake up, or I want to sleep...it was legit NO TO working out. But here’s the thing. I knew I needed too, I knew I would be wishing 🤞I had later, I knew we had a busy schedule tonight🏐, and I knew that I wasn’t going to let one early morning ruin the fact that I’ve worked out...without missing a day...for 74 days. And because I love having conversations with myself 🙋‍♀️. I told that Ashley to knock it off and get up. And that girl knows what she’s talking about 😉. #conversationswithmyself

This is my new motto. #nomoremomguilt

As moms we feel all that #momguilt when we take time to ourselves, to love ourselves and become better versions of us don’t we? But realizing that taking the time to love ourselves first, enables us to give more of ourselves to our families and loved ones. It’s #winwin and that is BEAUTIFUL! .

I listened to @3in30podcast podcast this week about mom guilt while I was on the treadmill this morning and it was really good. She talked about how we need to figure out if our mom guilt is helping us become better and grow or if it's just causing us undue stress. Then she shared this awesome quote and I knew u had to share it!
🌾
Mom guilt was a huge thing for me after Sweet Pea was born. I felt so bad that I wasn't spending as much time with Little Man as before and I felt guilt that I wanted more sleep and more me time. Even now sometimes I still struggle but I have worked hard to find the right balance for me and my kids. It hasn't been is and there arealways minor changes and adjustments we are making, but that's life right?
🌾
If you dont a ready follow @3in30podcast go and do. If you haven't listened to her podcasts yet go and do. They are amazing and I have loved the take away from every episode. ❤

Mamas, let talk about something that we often put last on our never ending to-do list: SELF CARE!!! If you're anything like me, then let's relate sister!
I am so fixated on giving my kids the best of the best, that I don't have much left for myself and I settle. Settle for things that I know aren't good for me. Because sister child, the guilt and buyers remorse with buying high end things for myself is too much to handle!
Every shampoo that I have bought came from The Wally World and it's which ever one I feel gets the most bang for my buck. I NEVER looked at ingredients on things for myself. Same with deodorant, I usually buy those two packs! Cause momma needs stuff to last! Especially when diapers and wipes are always at the top of the grocery list!
I've always had that little voice in the back of my head, wishing I could afford the cleaner, more non toxic stuff but that just never fit with our budget.
One of the MANY reasons I decided to partner with my new company is because I'm tired of that momma guilt, I'm tired of shaming myself! They offer me the best of the best, not just for myself but for my whole family (YES EVEN MACY, our pet)!!! It's non toxic, clean, chemical free, one stop shop, that gets delivered straight to my door! & it's affordable!!!! The best part is all their customers can earn $250 in free product each month, without having to join or sell a thing!!!! Uhhhh yes keep speaking my love language & fitting my budget!!!! How would your families budget open up if you didn't have to purchase these items that you already use daily???? My mind is still blown!!! #NoMoreMomGuilt #NaturalMindedMomma #Clean #ToxicAndChemicalFree #IngredientsMatter

It truly takes community to do this life. I had the pleasure of going to moms Bible study 📖 and it was so refreshing to hear more of God's word to give encouragement to this weary momma. Find a community wherever you are and allow God to use people to speak to your heart and give you reassurance that YOU are the right person to parent your children, even when you don't feel equipped. #community #doinglifetogether #family #faith #nomoremomguilt
