Mama of Two and Newborn Pics

Being a mama to two kiddos is no joke! I always knew being a stay at home Mom was hard work and the past 8 weeks have been a crash course in managing mealtimes, baths, naps, school drop off and pick up, getting out of the house into the car with way too much stuff... not to mention finding a little bit of time to myself... yeah right! To be transparent, what you see on Instagram with the matching outfits, smiling faces, perfectly captured moments are just that, moments. The other moments are me in my robe, Ashton in a diaper and Ryann with unbrushed hair. Very glamorous.

I feel like a little honesty is due. I admit I spend way to much time scrolling through my Insta feed lined with perfectly curated posts (that I am guilty of contributing to occasionally). I have to consciously remind myself that "this", the picture perfect snaps, are not reality! That being said, if you take the time to make it to the bottom of this post (yes, there are a lot of pics but I love them all so much that I could not narrow it down), please keep in mind that these, too, are moments...what is not shown is Ashton's explosive poop cascading all over Cynthia's props, Ryann refusing to cooperate without us bribing her with ice cream and cookies, me carefully maneuvering my not so nursing-friendly clothes in an effort to keep Ashton quiet and my dresses free of breastmilk, and Jeremiah just trying to keep the peace. These latter moments, although chaotic, are my perfectly imperfect reality. I have been humbled by motherhood and am learning everyday from these two unpredictable blessings.
