Breakfast for a fat jawn tryna slim down down
A tidbit of what my Sunday will consist of. Hydrating....browsing through this jcrew catalog.... and being still. Wyd?
All of my children are asleep... Maxx went down at 7, Dash at 7:30 on the dot, Bond at 7:55....after he tried every trick in the book. Now here I am, reflecting on life. A part of me wants to do some entrepreneur stuff, another part wants to do something productive that you read on IG...you know the posts that go “ take your vitamins, drink your water, do your squats, and pray”..... they always throw pray at the end lol. And the last part of me wants to go to bed, take advantage of the last 30 mins before Maxx starts searching for the milk..and as I took this selfie, I realized that I’m getting old, I don’t know how to take selfies anymore, and I have a new grey hair.
.....and to think, this all started in the call center at PECO about 13 years ago. I met my husband taking calls and he used to visit my cubicle during his lunch break and I was soo uninterested in anything other than making money ( schmoney )... my last day working there I was walking out the building headed for the subway and I heard someone calling my name. When I turned around it was Marcus... running out the building with his headpiece still on, and I stopped with an attitude ( thinking I was gonna miss my sub ).... he said “ you’re not gonna leave without giving me your number......... and here we are now! We used to be hype about jcrew trips together, now we get excited about bulk paper towel and toilet paper finds on sale, ha! #oneYearDown #foreverToGo #happyanniversary
Breastfeeding and feeding myself at the same time...like a boss. Motherhood makes you become a master multitasker... being a mother of three forced me to learn new tricks💃🏾💃🏾
| Strolling with the fam | Dash got straight A’s on his report card... Bond likes cool ranch Doritos.. Maxx looked me in the eyes and blasted out his freshly changed diaper, and then smiled at me. Bae’s bringing me Sidbookers tonight after work * read that in your ratchet girl voice *....... and a stranger told me I looked good for having a baby a week ago, and I have no clue what day of the week it is...and I’m fine with it ( maternity leave makes you not want to go back )....how’s your day going?!
Birth Story: Maxx - 9pounds 12oz 22inches long........... on 10/30 I started having lower back pain, like a pulsating pain that would come and go. I figured it was the baby being “ sunny side up” and hitting a nerve. Eventually it stopped and I dismissed the thought of labor, but hopped in serious nesting mode.... cleaned out every trash can in the house😂😩...Went to pick up the boys, grocery shopping, target run....and then when I got home I attempted to start braiding my hair and the back pain started back up. Made dinner for the boys while talking to my sister on the phone, and the back pain went away again. So I figured it was me just doing too much and I needed to have several seats. Once the boys went to sleep, I had my first stomach contraction.... and I knew it was about to go down. Called my husband who was on his way home from NJ and told him that I was pretty sure I was in labor and that I was gonna drop the boys off at my parents. By the time I had their bags packed and woke them up, my husband came. Thank God. He packed up the car, and we were ready but then I remembered that trash day was tomorrow so he hurried and took the trash out. THEN I couldn’t find my purse😩.... traced it down and realized that I left it in target😩😩.... it was 10:45 and they closed at 11pm... but my contractions were 5 mins apart, and we still had to drop off the boys. So we went to target first. I had to go in bc they wouldn’t give it to him. I’m hot AF ( literally and figuratively ) and they thought I was crazy for coming to get my purse while in labor. But I had cash in it and I would have been sick to my stomach if someone got me for my riches ( that I planned to spend on takeout )..... so then we sped to my parents house and my mom looked at me and told me to go to Abington bc I wasn’t gonna make it downtown. BUT my husband knew how much I wanted to deliver with the midwives again, so he attempted the downtown trip from the burbs. I’m having intense contractions and I have the window down bc I felt like I was gonna pass out. Bul kept rolling up the window😖😂.... I told him to speed up bc with every contraction I felt the slight urge to push. By the time we hit...
Maxx told us to chill with swaddling. His swaddle escape game is too strong😂
I can’t wait to dye my hair black after I deliver my baby!!!! Ughhh TBT.
Steeped and ready for drinking! Good morning :)
“Be Still. And know that I am God “
I’m finally in the third trimester! This journey has been that of a wild one.... summer pregnancy is no joke. From heavy nosebleeds, to contractions do to dehydration.....it’s amazing how much our body goes through as it adjusts to the creation process of a human.... which is alive, and inside of me. Third time doing this and it still amazes me! I can’t wait to experience birthing this life! I’ll be going natural, again....but this time around I will not allow my midwives to detach the placenta until it stops pulsating. I am also waiting until I deliver to find out the gender. I will not be vaccinating. I will not allow them to take MY child out of the room without me or a loved one present. My delivery will be that of a spiritual experience. This is my body, God gave me this child, and this moment will be special...without manipulation. #prayerfully
