Souvent, quand il m'arrive des imprévus ou des urgences familiales, la première chose que je mets de côté, c'est...moi. J'oublie rapidement toutes petites choses qui pourraient m'aider, le stress monte, ça devient un cercle vicieux, je ne dors pas bien, je suis fatiguée, j'oublie de bien (ou de) manger, je manque d'énergie, ça spine au Max dans ma tête. Alors que lorsque je me mets à l'horaire, même si c'est compliqué, que je n'ai pas le temps, que je suis fatiguée, le moment où je bouge, mystérieuse, j'arrête de penser, je vais mieux. #réflexion #RealMamaLife #EquipeDeCarl #encoredesproblemes #BesoinDespaceDansMaTête #bouger #mieux

My new obsession, sibling twinning!! I'm so excited about the backpacks the kid's picked for school this year. We got a regular size one for kindergarten bound Ben, and a mini one for our little preschooler Lucy. Ben insisted he wear his to camp today, and when he got it out Lucy shrieked with delight and insisted she wear hers too, yelling "mama, put on!" So off we went hand in hand to camp drop off. Some days their sweetness is too much. Definitely not every day 😉 // @herschelsupply bags available locally at @diapereez in Bloor West Village #herschel #backpack #backtoschool #kindergarten #canadianmade #shoplocal #supportlocal #twinning #cute #motheringwithcare #itsthelittlethings #momentslikethese #realmamalife #momlife #camp #sportplay #bloorwest #junctionTO #westendparents #siblings #siblinglove

My view this morning from the couch, feeling a little under the weather and moving slower with each passing day as #3's due date arrives next month..trying to tie up loose ends around the house to feel some what ready for our adjustment as a family of 5 soon, but that seems to be getting harder and harder, no matter how many months you have before a baby arrives nothing ever seems complete or ready, praying for God's strength in these next few weeks and hoping we can get it all done 😁 #realmamalife #baby3prep

Where have my babies gone? We had a lovely morning playdate at Trinity Bellwoods with @momspired, but looking back at the photos I am teary realizing how big my babies are getting. It feels like they have both grown and developed leaps and bounds this summer and don't show any signs of slowing down. Parenting is so bittersweet. Some days I wish for gained independence and freedom, and other days I want them to stay small forever. #momtruth #summer #summerfun #growingup #bigkids #momentslikethese #momlife #latergram #itsthelittlethings #parenting #realmamalife #motheringwithcare #motheringthroughinstagram

Sharing a little cleaning fix I figured out today. For all the white sandal owners out there! Mine and Lucy's white leather sandals were both pretty badly stained. I tried washing them in the machine as per the directions, but they were still really dull and brownish. I was disappointed and reached out to @saltwatersandalscanada who offered to replace them, but with no size 6's available this late in the season I was at a loss. A friend recommended trying Vim cleaner, but I was worried that the harsh chemicals would hurt the leather, plus we don't own any cleaners like that in our house. I decided to try a few things in the kitchen and started with baking soda, coconut oil & dish soap, but they weren't quite enough. I grabbed our all natural @aspenclean scrub, applied it with warm water and a soft cloth in a circular motion and voila! Almost like new! So relieved. Back to our fabulous life twinning around town 😉 *Try this at your own risk.

Throwback to last night when @bri_norris and I won at parenting. After a crazy long week with an itchy baby and feisty preschooler, we managed to get both kids down to bed by 7:15 (thank you full day camp!) and were enjoying Mojitos with fresh mint on our porch by 7:30. Ahh what a night. If only every bedtime was this easy. I feel bad saying it, but I'm starting to think full day kindergarten might be pretty sweet. #tbt #parentingwin #mojitos #datenight #whiletheysleep #bedtime #kindergarten #camp #preschooler #toddler #sleep #motheringwithcare #momtruth #momlife #realmamalife #connect #slowdown #motherhoodthroughinstagram #selfhood #fillingmywell

My brain says do work while she naps, but my body says lay down and nap with her. So this is where you'll find me. Work piling up and the house a complete mess, but I don't care because this is where we both need me to be right now. On a side note: I am so incredibly grateful that Sportplay was able to keep Ben for the full day of camp today (vs. his usual half day) so we could have a day to recover. They are amazing!

Popsicles on the porch for breakfast. Don't judge. It's been a long few days around here and I'm getting by on very little sleep. Lucy hasn't been eating much, probably cause her mouth hurts, so frozen foods are a big hit. These ones are filled with banana, almond milk, greek yogurt & yummy chocolate protein power I was recently introduced to via my friend @momspired. That's an acceptable breakfast right? Everyone is loving them and I'm just happy Lucy is on the mend. I'm also loving this @zokuhq Popsicle maker. It's genius! Especially on boiling hot days like this. #sickbaby #handfootandmouth #zoku #zokupops #heatwave #popsicles #summer #hydrate #usana #health #motheringwithcare #tiredmama #motherhoodthroughinstagram #momtruth #momlife #realmamalife #itchy #rash

Small gestures of kindness are so incredible. A local mom who I taught CPR to, and who now comes to my drop in groups, heard about Lucy and rushed over to bring me her @zokuhq. It might seem little or silly, but this simple gesture means I can help keep Lucy hydrated and comfortable with instant healthy homemade popsicles while she's sick. That's a pretty big deal to me. Thanks Sara! Can't wait to try it 😘😘😘 * *Thank you to everyone who sent so much love our way on my last post. I am always so amazed by the support I receive from fellow moms online and in real life and I am so appreciative. They say it takes a village, and I have surrounded myself with an incredible one. #ittakesavillage #sickbaby #support #realmamalife #momtruth #health #momshelpingmoms #zoku #zokupops #handfootandmouth #community #popsicles #summer #hydrate

Instagram is a place I love to share my fun family stories, but the reality of parenting is that it's not all fun. It's been a really tough few days for me and my little Lucy and I am so done. Last week while camping we noticed that Lucy was a bit off, she was happy for the most part, but also clingy and needing to nurse non stop. I assumed it was the dozens of bug bites bothering her and didn't give it much more thought. Sunday evening on our drive home to the city Lucy's entire body erupted in an itchy rash. I was up for over 4 hours Sunday night with her screaming in pain trying to itch her whole body. I did our itch routine: baking soda bath, covered her in calamine lotion, gave her Benedryl and nursed her, but nothing worked. Finally we just lay together cuddling and crying until she passed out. My mama heart was broken for her. Yesterday the doctor confirmed that Lucy has a horrible case of Hand Foot & Mouth, a common childhood virus. All we can do is keep her comfortable doing exactly what we've been doing. I just want to take all of her pain away and I can't. This part of parenting is so tough, physically and emotionally. The only cute part is that she walks around saying "I tow ity", Lucy speak for "I'm so itchy" 💔 I'll be sure to share some tips for dealing with an insanely itchy baby on the blog once we're back in full form...and maybe some self care tips for mamas, since my well is feeling pretty low right about now. @steannesspa I could definitely use a day of pampering! #steannesgiveaway #motheringwithcare #sickbaby #noworkgettingdonearoundhere #parenting #handfootandmouth #itchy #realmamalife #momtruth #momtruths #latergram #needybaby #love #itsthelittlethings #momlife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #health

It's always hard to head home after a great week of summer vacation, but luckily I have a super fun day of work planned tomorrow screening "Trainwreck" at Movies for Mommies at the Humber Cinema (Jane Station) at 1pm (doors open at 12:30pm). I love being able to stay home with my kids and prioritize their needs, while still teaching and hosting events in my community. I'm one very lucky mama.

As kids get older the issues only get tougher. This week I had to have a very honest conversation with Ben about why he couldn't keep the toy gun he received for his birthday. We decided long ago to have a strict no gun policy in our house, so I cringed when I saw him opening this particular present. Ben was upset at first but once we discussed it he said he understood. We decided we'll exchange the gun for another toy at the store that is more appropriate. It's a tough balance to teach our kids to be appreciative of gifts, but also to understand why we might have to create some family boundaries. I would love to hear what other parents have done in this circumstance and what your thoughts are on toy guns/weapons. This parenting thing is tough! #parenting #motheringwithcare #toygun #gunsarenttoys #kids #letthembelittle #childhoodunplugged #momtruth #momtruths #momlife #realmamalife #houserules

amypogue : We haven't had to deal with this yet but the other day Eve said "I'm going to shoot you with a gun" (playing with heath) and it was pretty mortifying.
brickstagrams : I'm totally with you on the no toy guns thing. Though we do have water "squirters" at the cottage, I'm careful with the language we use.
with_care : @amypogue ahhhh! Heath better watch out 😉 Ben once told me he was going to stab me with his knife 😳 Doesn't make you feel good, but I think it's a pretty natural phase. Definitely not going to encourage any of that though.
with_care : @brickstagrams totally! We have long water squirters at the farm, but we don't allow ones that are gun shaped.

Here I am sticking to one of my intentions, morning yoga. It wasn't easy after a night of 3 wake ups and the kids jumping all around me, but I need to start somewhere. Up next smoothie time, because mommy matters! Thanks for the bracelet! It's a great reminder 😘 For anyone interested my favourite online yoga is offered on you tube by @adrienelouise #selfhood #theselfhoodinitiative #theholisticway #itsthelittlethings #yoga #breathe #fillingmywell #tiredmama #motheringwithcare #momtruth #momlife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #realmamalife

Brilliant. (Also, it seems the sweet tooth has hit YMC hard today.) #Repost @with_care with @repostapp. ・・・ Ever have one of those days when you have to sneak out to the front porch to eat a leftover birthday cupcake mid-afternoon just to stay sane? Yup, one of those days around here. Rethinking this whole no nap for Ben thing. And yes this is how I eat cupcakes. Remove half of the bottom and sandwich over icing. There you have it, the cupcake sandwich. Best invention ever! #cupcakesandwichtotherescue #chocolate #serenitynow #chocolatefixesall #preschoolers #nonap #tiredmama #realmamalife #momlife #momtruth #momentslikethese #cupcake

caresgomez : I always do that too. :) 👍🏻
tarakrane : This is also how I eat cupcakes!
joannewallaceca : @clbuchananphoto I've shown many people that trick over the years - best icing coverage :)
yummymummyclubdotca : @clbuchananphoto @joannewallaceca we'll never eat them the old way again.
yummymummyclubdotca : @babysleepsite Agree!
yummymummyclubdotca : @caresgomez @tarakrane Maximum enjoyment! Why did we not know this?!

mldthomson : PS best cupcake hack!
with_care : @bificus good call!
with_care : @lovemedobabymaternity the cupcake is a necessary coping mechanism, so you better get some! 😉😂
with_care : @mldthomson it's such a special age 😉Today Ben ran screaming through the house waking Lucy after 20 mins of her nap. It was super fun. He started melting down hours ago. It seems almost cruel not to do a nap when he's like this, but I agree we need to prep him for full day school. So hard.
mldthomson : "Special" is right @with_care. It's a good thing they're still so cute. And sweet most of the time.
mscmommylife : I need to try this! So smart @with_care ❤️
with_care : @mscmommylife life changer 😉
momspired : Looks delicious!! Any leftovers?? 🙈🙊
