MotherHEARD: Feeling Overwhelmed ⁠ ⁠
we honor you today @taylormade_mama  "If there’s anything I’m passing on to her I guess it’s a messy bun 😂 I have never been more tired or more blessed in my life. ⁠ ⁠ Today I’m dealing with a sick toddler, holding a bowl close to her for when she needs to throw up. ⁠ ⁠ Today I’m keeping another toddler from playing with that bowl because apparently it’s the best toy in the whole house 🥴 ⁠ ⁠ Today I’m holding a newborn who would rather snuggle than be put down.

MotherHEARD: What fills your cup? (evening edition)
 "Motherhood is truly beautiful. When my husband and I found out I was pregnant last summer, it was a dream come true. That said, the weight of caring for these tiny humans can be overwhelming.
