Accept the fact that bedtime is not always going to be smooth. After all, we’re dealing with young children, so if things start to go off the rails a bit, don't look at it as a failure. They’re going to have regressions, tough nights, and the occasional meltdown, but staying calm and level headed is the best thing you can do to avoid escalating those situations into something more frustrating and upsetting for everyone involved. If you are struggling you can always contact me and I'm happy to help you and your little one. #sleepblogger #tiredmom #sleeptraining #tiredmama #mamaneedsleep #sleepconsultant #exhaustedmommy #babysleep #exhaustedmama #babysleeping #toddlerlife #sleepdeprived #sleepeducation #babylife #sleepcoach #helpsleeping #mompreneurship #uaemoms #parenting #dubaimums #needmoresleep #dubaifamily #momproblems #realparenting #babshelp2sleep

How'd your day go? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mine looked a bit like this 😏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After a really hard day with the kids yesterday, we regrouped and tried to fit in a bit more play with them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm going to be finding nerf bullets everywhere for days... 😭 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There were still plenty of hard bits, hubby is trying to work in the living room and needs quiet and I didn't manage to find any blocks of time to fit my training in... So it was staggered throughout the day which actually really hurt my legs... Warming up then cooling down all day... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I really miss my weekly physio & massage! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But we'll take the win. More connection time, more laughter... More nerf wars... And of course...

YOU DO HAVE CHOICES! - In these scary and uncertain times, many people are understandably feeling ‘trapped’ and like they have little control in their lives at the moment. - We need to try and stay positive and make every day count. For ourselves as well as our families. - You do still have choices! You could choose to make the most of being at home more and start to work on teaching your baby or toddler how to sleep well 😊 - Being at home more is the perfect time for changing your child’s sleep for the better, as you can more easily follow a routine and get some rest yourself. Most sleep issues can be fixed in less than 2 weeks! We will no doubt, still have to stay at home for a lot longer than that. - Are YOU ready for a change?

Day 3 of 10 of the #10by10sleepchallenge . Someone decided to wake up and nurse from 9:30pm to 10:30pm so I’m just now getting to bed. I was hoping for three solid days in a row of being in bed by 10 but babies... they don’t listen 😂 #newborninthehouse #tiredmama #sleepchallenge @hatch .heddyherron
“Cast all your anxiety on him, for he cares for you!” 1 Peter 5:7 This has been my favorite Bible verse since high school. I have always been a “worry-wart”, and it’s always been a struggle for me not to let my thoughts race through all of the what-ifs! Giving my worries to God is not something that often comes naturally to me, but I think He’s really been working on thibs one with me lately, because I know this is the only way I will get through this season! A song that has been running through my head all day today is: “Lord, I need you, oh I need you. Every hour I need you. My one defense, my righteousness. Oh God, how I need you.” (Matt Mayer ) For the best few weeks, I have had to take life day by day, but yesterday, it was hour by hour. I needed to pray for strength and peace hourly. I’m learning just how much I need to lean on God to get through this. What are the Bible verses or worship songs that have been especially helpful to you recently?
Lewis Chronicles - Day 14: Whew, I thought it was tough when we had school...at least we had some structure. Now, it’s like the wild, Wild West in this house and anything goes! 😳🙄 Lots of meetings for Mommy but in between we played basketball- thanks to our neighbors the Jenkins!! We played Candyland and a very tough set of Connect 4 games....if he thought I was going to just LET him win, well then he doesn’t know me at all. He finally got the strategy down and we moved on to a WWE Match w/Jon Cena and The Rock.....clearly Mommies aren’t built to withstand continuous tackles, at least this Mommy isn’t...and doesn’t want to be. 🤷🏽♀️ We did remember breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner (he reminds me everyday that I forgot ONCE ) and even had more cookies...NO ice cream this time. Then it was movies and ANOTHER slumber party....which I’m over since that requires me to sleep in his bunk bed 🙄....glad he’s having fun and is happy, healthy, and safe. #mylewis #tiredmama #nomorewweplease
Tired mom look? Check ✅ Norah is officially 3 weeks old already! I can’t even believe it!Just been reminiscing a bit on this pregnancy and birth and what a whirlwind it was. So for those who don’t know, here’s the story: . . . I was diagnosed with a subchorionic hematoma at 6 weeks pregnant, and at 8 weeks my midwife told me I was miscarrying yet again due to the insane amount of blood I was losing blood and told me I needed to be seen immediately. I remember driving to the hospital. Screaming and singing “I will praise you in the storm” at the top of my lungs and holding my belly and praying. And then I remember getting there ready to hear horrible news and instead being told my baby was still okay. ❤️ . . . My baby was born 3/11/20. She was born 36+3 at 4lbs 3oz via c-section. She was born early and here alive because I had thankfully trusted my gut due to lack of movement (even though doctors said it was just my anterior placenta ). I did an NST (second one in that week ) after 20 min they were about to send me home. They told me they will keep me a little longer (ONLY because I came in because I had back pain too, which just turned out that I threw out my back ). Right after the 20 min, baby’s heart rate dropped with movement. Nurse came in, and it happened again. They did an ultrasound and she hadn’t moved for the full 30 min ultrasound. Within an hour, they decided on a c-section and I gave birth to the most beautiful baby girl. . . . Doctors were surprised at her size, as was I. We found out through my placenta after she was born, that I had developed clots and it slowed my baby’s growth. Also gave her lack of oxygen to her brain. Her motor and speech centers were damaged. She also has low muscle tone. However, our girl is a fighter and kicks butt. So thankful she is doing so well. We love our little miss Norah Jade 🌈 my sweet rainbow. She’s survivor 💕 and has God and her sweet angel sibling watching over her 👼 . . . #3weekspostpartum #3weeksold #tiredmama #nicu #nicumama #postpartumanxiety #nst #pregnancyjourney #sch #subchorionichemorrhage #subchorionichematoma #schbaby #babygirl #childrenshospitalcolorado #rainbowbaby #hospital #cp #gtube

Mamas, do you feel like you've lost a little of yourself? Are you tired and running on coffee and energy drinks? Take a look at where Angela was at -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My name is Angela Ives - Rios, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Welcome to my Thrive Experience 💥⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After having kids, I felt like the party was over. A new kind of FUN was ahead of me. I was expecting that being a stay at home was full of baking cookies, patiently helping with homework, and fun family vacations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reality check - It was full of diapers, missed showers, high stress, and general body aches! Forget about sleeping soundly ever again! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had reached a point where my joy came from a cup of coffee, espresso shops, and energy drinks. I watched a friend ditch the coffee and I thought she was crazy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After a quick moment of jealousy of her joy for life. I decided to join! Purchased my first full month and kept it a secret. I lost weight, inches, and my stress. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After that first month in secret, I couldn't keep my mouth shut! Switched over to Brand Promoter, wore my DFT out in the open and hit 12K VIP in my 30 days. My family is more active now than in previous years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Life has been on the UP ever since!! Never in my life did I imagine working with a company that paid me to travel! I was selected to participate in the NBCF experience and my heart grew even larger. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take the chance, dive in, go on an adventure!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to know more check out the link in my bio and click You Should Thrive! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #healthymama #happymama #tiredmama #thrivingmother #phillippathrives #bestnutrition #mommin #momlifeisthebestlife #tiredasamother #mumcommunity #theelitesuite #momlife #instamoms #familylife
I think I’ll just eat a cookie either way 🤷🏻♀️
🤣🤣🤣 he’s asleep over the water bowl! And when his face hits he drinks. Then falls asleep again. He’s been doing this for three minutes at least.

This wild and spunky 2-yr old is the sweetest, most loving girl and can also be a defiant, strong-willed, “No” yelling terror. Parenting is so weird. I can be so frustrated and then 5 minutes later want to go wake her up and snuggle her because I miss her. #emotionalpregnantmomma This week on our days home together, we implemented a schedule to help the day run a little more smoothly so mom wouldn’t cry. 🤣 The one thing that I noticed with the schedule was that I was more anticipatory and eager as opposed to reactionary. We didn’t stick to the schedule 100%, but just going in with a plan for us and myself made me a much nicer mom. And I was able to excite Molly with what we were going to do next instead of waiting it out until she asked if she could watch Minnie Mouse, me telling her No, and her being upset about it. (Seriously, girl could watch Minnie Mouse for 8 hours straight every day I think. ) Listened to a podcast today about parenting the heart of a child, and giving opportunities for training. So tomorrow we’re going to “practice” running to Mommy when we call out her name. #WishMeLuck !
I love this from my friend and Nurse Practitioner, Brooke Kanitz: "I thought I felt good. I thought all moms were tired. I thought all moms were ashamed that they yelled a bit too much behind closed doors. I thought all moms took naps, while dreaming they could be “that” mom. You know the one. 🙄 The one who acts as if she WANTS to be with her kids. Energetic. Smiling. Patient. Engaged. Not sticking her head under the spigot of Diet Coke at the gas station. I thought everyone got canker sores & had break outs. I thought everyone had seasonal sinus infections. I thought everyone had to run to the nearest restroom 🏃🏻♀️ after they ate Chinese food 🥡 Nope, not the case. What I learned was that I was not only tired, I was exhausted. I didn’t know that until I was able to stay awake & enjoy my day without a gallon of soda 🥤 What I learned was people who practice self-care aren’t sick all the time & those symptoms were my body begging for help. That lady is hard to recognize & even harder to relate to. She was a good mom doing the best she could at the time. I don’t judge her...but, I don’t want to be her either. I know how good feels now. And, it feels damn good. . . . . . . #inflammationrelief #energyiseverything #bettermood #notsickanymore #formersugaraddict #carboholic #frustrated #tiredmama #boymomlife #breakouts #naturalpainrelief " — with Brooke Kanitz.
We did each other’s makeup and now i look like this guy 👉 😳
My other favorite coaching event was just canceled. 💔😭 . The first one was the all-inclusive tropical vacation I earned for Sab and I. And now our annual coach conference. . Where 25,000 coaches get together to workout and take over the streets of a major city (this year was supposed to be New Orleans ). . Where we ALL rent a big house together for 3 nights, have girl time, and bond as a team and FAMILY. . Where we have training sessions where we get to learn more and brainstorm about how to better help people with the incredible fitness and nutrition solutions we have to offer. . And where guest speakers like Rachel Hollis pour into our souls and remind us that our dreams and goals have purpose, and that we can achieve anything we set our minds to. . Of course this is a safety precaution and the best decision right now. I know this. But it doesn’t make it any easier. I needed to see these girls so badly. 😭😭 . Somehow, I still take a little bit of comfort knowing we’re all in this together. ❤️
Yesterday I posted about why we get caught in comparisons. So how do we stop getting stuck in this difficult pattern? *️⃣ Noticing. Begin to bring awareness to when your mind is doing that comparison thing. You might say "I see my mind is..." or "I notice I'm having the thought that..." *️⃣ Get out of your mind and into your body. Try bringing yourself back to the present moment. Take a few slow deep breaths and push your feet into the ground. *️⃣ Get curious! Identify what is contributing to this comparison. Are you scrolling? Are you watching someone else? Are you thinking of something? Where does this come from for you? Are you missing something? What feeling is underneath the comparison? *️⃣ Connect to what is important to you. What is really meaningful for you? Is it playing on the floor with the kids? Do that! Is it creating something awesome in your business? Do that! *️⃣Have a go-to mantra. My go-to? “I am right where I need to be.” What's your go-to strategy to get out of comparisons? . . . #momguiltisreal #momlifeunfiltered #beingamomishard #lifeasamama #happymumhappybaby #stopdropandmom #momstylelife #imamom #honestlymothering #momminsohard #motherhoodunfiltered #momssupportingmoms #motherhoodalive #momguilt #mamalifestyle #thatmomlife #tiredmama #momlife #lifedailymoms #momlifeyo #momdotme #honestmom #rawmotherhood #realmomlife #mombie #tiredmummy #crazymomlife #amomentinmotherhood #mommylifestyle #mommystatus

The other day I was talking to my parents over FaceTime and noticed my Dads outfit... ⠀ ... They are not leaving their home....⠀ ⠀ ... and he is wearing a button-down shirt tucked into khaki dress pants 😂 So I said "Dad why are you all dressed up?!" and he commented something along the lines of " well I didn't iron my shirt..." 🤣⠀ ⠀ And then I looked down at my cute but frankly barely holding it together look of "suburban-mom-chic-hoodie + athletic-leggings" 🤣 with my mom bun in full force and was like "Janelle ... you can do better"⠀ ⠀ Can you do better? Can you relate?!?! ⠀ ⠀ So today I rocked a full button outfit (jeans AND a button down shirt! ), and even if my shirt wasn't tucked in, I still felt pretty fabulous in real clothes 🙌 I added a cute braid to my hair (still working on my Swiss braid skills...! ) too AND some fun earrings! Sometimes an outfit change is just the kick we need to have a fresher start to the day ❤️ So if you are like me and have been living in a rotation of leggings (standard, athletic, or yoga...🤣 ) bust those jeans and cute tops back out for a quick boost to your day! ⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #awkwardmom #funnymoms #awkwardmoms #workingmoms #momhustle #momswhowork #momswhohustle #workathomemom #wahmlife #busymama #busymom #busymomlife #busymama #thatmomlife #tiredmom #tiredmama #momslivinghappy #thatmomlife #busymama #busymomlife #theeverymom #honestmotherhood #ohheymama #joyfulmamas #momentsinmotherhood #unitedmotherhood #motherhoodrocks #lularoejanellewoodfall #llrdenim #lularoevalentina
Closets can be like big junk drawers. It’s so easy to just toss random things in there, close the door and say you’ll deal with them later. I know how it goes. But if you take another look, you’ll find there’s almost always enough space for everything worth keeping. Sharing a little peek into my linen closet in Stories today - you’ll see that things don’t need to be fancy, just put away neatly in easy to reach containers. Here are a few notes on how I keep this little space functional and under control: ⭐️ File fold extra towels so they lay flat, save space, and look nice on a shelf. ⭐️ Each bed really only needs one spare set of sheets, so you always have a clean set to use while washing the other. ⭐️ Use reusable microfiber rags for cleaning rather than paper towels. ⭐️ Keep linens and any other related items in cute storage bins and baskets for a clean and cohesive look. ⭐️ Store frequently used items within reach for easy access. For example, keep seasonal things out of the way on the top shelf. So are you closets like junk drawers or what? What’s your biggest problem when it comes to keeping them organized?
It has been a little bit of a challenging day... some days are just harder than others. I had so many thoughts that I wanted to share today, but as I'm finally sitting down to get some work done, my brain is struggling to put them into a well written post.⠀ ⠀ So instead of making this nice, neat and well put together, here are the notes I jotted down while I was working out today...⠀ ⠀ What are we filling our minds with?⠀ A one time glance at the Bible in the morning (a "Jesus breakfast", as my dear friend calls it ) doesn't cut it.⠀ This is a daily surrender.⠀ We need Jesus' grace and strength daily... sometimes even moment by moment.⠀ We must have intentionality.⠀ Our HOPE is found in the victory of Christ's death on the cross...not in our health, not in our finances, not in our "perfect" schedules.⠀ ⠀ There are so many thoughts there, and I could probably write an individual post on all of them, but all of these thoughts came flooding in while I was getting my butt kicked 😳💦 and the worship music was blaring. I NEED each and everyone of these reminders. Not sure if you need these too, but just figured I would share. One day at a time, sister. 🙏🏼
We are officially #14weekspostpartum and there are a few things I am learning. . My body is forever changed and it takes time to love that change, especially for someone who doesn’t like change! . Postpartum takes patience on all levels. . You’re body is different from the other gal on the insta that you compare yourself to. Don’t allow comparison to steal your joy. . Don’t ever let someone tell you you should have lost the weight by now.. everyone is different, everyone’s body, pregnancy and postpartum is different. . Trust the process and know that the small habits you do every day WILL get you results in due time. . I share these picture of my progress to show you the real and the raw. I share to inspire you to just start and see what happens. I share to give you hope and believe in yourself that you can do big things! . I’m opening a free 2 week group starting MONDAY, APRIL 6th if you want to join me in making this the best month yet! Simply comment below I’m in and I can get you details! . . #freegroup #accountability #postpartumfitness #postpartumworkouts #honestmommin #14weekspostpartum #toddlerboy #athomeworkouts #homeworkoutsforyou #toddlermomlife #tiredmama #unfilteredmotherhood
Bouncers! These babies love playing in these and they help free up my arms a bit! We bought all of these secondhand for $10 or less each too, so win! When you are home alone with three babies and two kids, loading them up for a little drive to pick up random items is usually the field trip we all need! Especially me. Usually followed by a drive thru ice cream stop! 😂 #babybouncers #triplets #tripletbabies #tiredmama
Fatigue - one of the most annoying and most invisible MS symptoms...in my opinion 🥱 • While sleep helps... for sure, it feels like that 'worn out' feeling is right around the corner...which makes this girl a little loony 🙄 • I feel the best before noon...but I don't know if you noticed, but there is a lot of day after 12 pm 😏 • I've been on a mission to train myself to sleep through a lot of racket...and I'm definitely getting practice this week 😂 • So are you taking more naps now? Or are all the people interupting your sleep system? How are you managing my friend? #msawarenessmonth #mswarrior #autoimmunewarrior #fatigued
YOUR FACE 🥺 I dont care that I haven't slept at all last night, or that you've needed to hold onto my more because you're not feeling yourself. I dont care if you needed the comfort of my breast or my finger to hold. I dont care that I didnt get that time alone or that one moment to relax because that's what I'm here for. I am your mum and if YOU need me. Ill be here ♡ #sleepdeprived #imhereforyou #imyourmum #mumstheword
So for the last week Caroline has only woken up once at night and going to bed at 6pm! So proud of her and feeling much better with more sleep! Now I know she’s only 7 weeks and things can change but hey, small victories! ⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀ Looking at all the positives, being proud of how far she has come. Considering our first night, we all watched the sun rise together 😬 so I’m sending all my other mamas prayers that they get rest too! ⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀ Also with her going to bed at 6pm, me and her dad have gotten more time together! Which now days looks like a jigsaw puzzle and a glass of wine 🤷🏻♀️ ⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀ I’d love to hear what everyone else’s date nights look like during this crazy time??

A mother’s job never ends. ❤️ I hate seeing my baby sick. I don’t normally run to the ER when she has a fever, but with everything going on, it’s better to be safe than sorry, especially with her VP shunt in place. The last thing I would hate is for her to get an infection. I’m thankful my baby is okay and slowly getting back to her sassy self. • • • • #motherdaughter #blessed #love #mommysgirl #DMV #AlexandriaVA #Virginia #personalblog #momlife #toddlerlife #babygirl #motherhood #filipina #minime #VA #blogger #hydrocephaluswarrior #bloggerlife #WashingtonDC #familyfirst #hydromom #hydrocephalus #tiredmama #hydrocephalusbaby #hydrobaby #mymiracle #lifeofahydromom

Thank f***k it’s Friday! Oh wait that makes know difference at all other than the husband will stop looking busy working and it will finally be us VS them once again. On Monday we had no tv Tuesday tv was on only at lunch time Wednesday tv was on only at lunch time and snack times Thursday tv was on only at lunch time, snack times and after our afternoon walk Friday- tv is gonna be on all day this Mummy is pooped. We have baked, painted, planted, practiced writing, practiced letters, played games, exercised and that’s been all before 10am. I’m seriously running out of ideas on how to entertain them. Maybe the game for next week could be ‘hide and seek’, mummy hides first. . . . .
