Something about baking in your cozy clothes on a sick day💖 We made some #runfasteatslow 🍌 🍞 into muffins. Added chocolate chips and raisins and this girl was having SO much fun. Times like this make all the hard moments of being a mom (like only having 30min stretches of 😴 all night 🤦🏻♀️) way worth it. Thanks for the baking inspo @elysekopecky #toddlermeals #toddlerfood #rdapproved #familymeals #kidssnacks #miniboden
Today I ran the farthest I’ve run in a full year. And, if you know my pre- baby- running-loving self you understand that 5 miles being the farthest I’ve run in 12 months has not come easy to me. But I’m celebrating because my run today was pain free, and my lungs didn’t feel like they were going to explode, and i let go of old pace expectations and let my mind go and it just felt so so good. Coming back to ourselves postpartum is hard work. And I’m working hard on not comparing my current self with my past self. Because my past self didn’t grow to term and birth 2 healthy, beautiful babies. And while I slept a lot more, ran a lot faster (and farther), showered whenever i wanted, and wore jeans a size smaller, my current self wouldn’t wish to trade any of those things for these crazy days and amazing kids. Almost 3 months postpartum and I’m working on wasting less time thinking about the old me, being proud of where i am today and being as present as possible with my sweet babies- who are growing way to fast. And as a dear friend recently told me... f*%* the jeans.
