just a REALLY BIG thank you!

A few days ago I posted this picture and description on instagram:

Today was one of those days. After I put my hooligan to bed I cried really hard into my husband's chest. Motherhood is the best and most amazing thing to have ever happened in my life, but it's so hard sometimes. I am grateful tomorrow will be a fresh new day. Tonight I will eat those nasty Little Debbie doughnuts and I will drink A LOT of chocolate milk. #livewithoutpretending
Thinking back I am not sure why I posted that for so many to see. It was a very personal moment into my real life which is something I don't actually share a whole lot. I am so glad I did though because I realized how many amazing women and friends I have out there. Even though we have never met I consider those sweet women friends. Those women who gave me words of encouragement and simply said "Yeah...I know exactly what you're feeling". Isn't it amazing that we actually have a very big support group out there, we mothers who have rough days, amazing days, boring days.

Anyways, I have been trying to figure out how I could thank these ladies on my Instagram and I decided to keep it real and simple.

  1. yeah! there is a very big support group, I feel it too :)

  2. I had that day yesterday! They are the worst. Of course postpartum hormones don't help either! (My second babe is two weeks old)

  3. Thank you for being so real, that is why I love reading your blog :)
    Everyone has those days, especially when they are so little
