Nash and I survived our first day apart. ♥️ We thank Lolo and Lola for taking care of 6(!) kids. They are amazing, aren’t they? May God continue to bless them... πŸ‘ΆπŸ» Look at this cutie’s smile. He was awake with the older kids while I got ready for work. It’s like he knew he needed to see me and send me off. >>> my #firstday #outfit linked here  I have the perfect #mididress and it’s πŸ’― cotton! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ it’s from target! 🎯

(Actual) #myoutfitToday#leopardandpink! Day ✌️ of this πŸ‘©πŸ»‍⚕️ #docmomlife done. Today was better in terms of efficiency and getting stuff done beyond seeing patients. Emotionally better as well because I have the weekend to look forward to... πŸ’ƒπŸ» shout out to my mom @spencercalifor watching 3 kids from 8-2:30p. That’s a long time. I know it’s #survivalmode when watching the littlest and that’s ok. She took out the big guns before 10a. Lucy and Lucas were eating cake when I FaceTimed with them. πŸ˜†

It was a wonderful summer with my loves! It’s tough leaving them specially the baby. But I know with time, we will find a new rhythm. Here’s to ending my 6th maternity leave 🌸

I’ve brought this sweet girl to her soccer practice and her game... to give @derrick49ers a break. He coaches 3 other soccer teams except for Isabel’s. While watching her run and dribble and kick ~ I remember the 4 year old who cried and cried during practice and didn’t want to let go of my hand. Look at her now. She said after practice: I like soccer. ⚽️ today she asked the coach to be on offense two quarters in a row. She didn’t let that ball out of her sight!

I take care of you. 🀱🏻 πŸ‘ΆπŸ» I also have to take care of myself.πŸ’ͺ🏼

I wish I could say I did a barre workout today but NO people. No i didn’t. In fact it’s been 3 days since I worked out. What happened? You ask. I went back to work Thursday and Friday. My intentions were to workout on my days off but with a splitting headache πŸ€• this morning, I opted to just walk and take a nap instead of a medium intensity workout. This post is not to make excuses. But for me to remember days like today. If sleep is what I needed, I slept. I’m such a night owl πŸ¦‰ that waking up at 5a to feed baby just to workout at 530a just won’t do. πŸ™…πŸ»‍♀️ I just have to be better on my non working days about being active and pressing play. ▶️ I also need to find a new rhythm amidst the #momresponsibilities to make working out successful.

#BeKind. Before these shirts are available left and right, I have a sign already in our kitchen that says Be Kind. You may think it’s for my kids, but it’s also a reminder for me... to be more patient. More loving. More giving.

Today was a little easier (and thus more fun) than yesterday. The youngest boys and I made a quick target pickup and then ordered Sebastian’s cake at a local #grocerystore. We couldn’t leave the store without ice cream. Because #priorities. Sorry to disappoint but I don’t bake my children’s cakes. #notanymore. They want the whole she-bang for their party. #icannotdoitall. In fact, I delegate. Thank you grandparents.

I’m struggling people 😭 after a fun weekend, I cannot help but countdown my back to work date. I have 2.5 weeks to go! Why am I killing myself? 
I’ve gotten a preview of what it would be like at work thinking for 8-10 hours (or longer if on call) if I don’t get enough sleep. When I do homework with the children, I get a headache πŸ€• having to use that much more brain power. 
Ok. Ok. Enough of the drama and self-pity. Let’s count our blessings and change this attitude to joy.  outfit details here 

Thursday musings ~ Yesterday, I started talking about quality of items and me wanting to go back to buying 100% natural fibers. I’ve been doing this “subconsciously.” It is definitely hard to find 100% linen or 100% cotton nowadays so I have compromised and did not even realize that I shifted from natural fibers to synthetic ones in the past decade.A lot are cotton blends. 
Thankfully some synthetic fibers are produced in a better way that’s not harmful for our environment or the people making them. I feel funny using the words sustainability or ethical fashion since those words can mean a lot of things for different people... for me, my step towards buying more natural fibers is due to poor quality of items produced nowadays. If I go through my closet, the items that do not last are made of polyester or rayon. 
Do I still have rayon and polyester items in my closet? Yes! I have bought them. I am keeping them. Some have held up. However, sadly, a lot of items that I have donated or purged from my closet are made of synthetic fibers.If I am just testing a trend then something that cost $15 made of polyester is an acceptable purchase. (See im not perfect or totally in the ethical shopping camp)But if I want something classic, that can last for a long time, the truth is we do have to spend a little bit more money. But in the long run, after several washes, that 100% cotton dress is going to stay in my closet for a long time versus that 100% rayon dress.

It’s already a short school week because of Labor Day; then even shorter because children do not have school tomorrow. Today also marks a week before my first day back in clinic. I’ve only pumped once and we haven’t practiced giving Nash the bottle 🀦🏻‍♀️ he must be having a major growth spurt. He won’t leave me. So there’s no extra milk per se to pump. I’ll have to try this weekend. Otherwise he will be hungry in a week.

We spent my last Friday of leave at #connerprairie. I’m a whirlwind mess of emotions. Sometimes, I feel ready for work. I accept the inevitable. Sometimes, I look at my babies and i get sad. These postpartum hormones are unreal. πŸ₯Ί
Please keep us in your prayers. I would hate for this anxiety to get worse. “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Pt 5:7

It’s 4pm and I haven’t pushed play on @myopenfit#xtendbarre workout yet. Maybe because I skipped wearing my leggings? It’s true that I’ve actually been successful at checking that #workout box when I #dressforit. After that I then change to regular clothes.

This morning, I ran some errands and didn’t wear #athleisure. I covered the booty appropriately with shorts (not cheeky shorts or leggings) and I still got called out by two men at the gas station. #cantwin πŸ€¦πŸ»‍♀️
