Let me guess...
You're sitting on your couch, pumping or nursing or feeding a baby (because it feels like that's all you do for the first year of their life) wondering how you can love such a tiny human so much but at the same time have them suck the life out of you. Physically & emotionally.
You desperately want to get your body back and start feeling like yourself again. But every spare second you get (whoever invented the phrase "sleep like a baby" must not have had kids, right?) is spent sleeping or cleaning bottles or doing laundry or tending to other kids.
Maybe the excitement of motherhood is quickly fading because you feel like you don't measure up. You are consumed by comparison because it seems like everyone else on social media is killing it at life and you are over here drowning in feeding schedules and diapers or tantrums and slightly insane toddler behavior.
Doubt starts to creep in hard because you can't ever seem to get it all done or find time for self care (what the heck is that anyways?). You wonder how you can possibly be doing enough for your kid(s) when you feel like you are completely overwhelmed.
Wherever you are in your journey, I want you to know your feelings are valid. Motherhood is no freaking joke! It's the hardest, yet most important job. So, where do you even start?
But, let me tell you.... there is so much hope ahead. Hang in there with me. Keep scrolling.

Take a second and head over to iTunes and give my story a listen on the Give Grace Podcast. Once you're done, circle back here and we will keep moving forward.
Let's be real. Toddlers are borderline insane. One second they are asking for something and then the next second they are screaming on the floor because they don't want that very thing they just asked for.
You want to raise well mannered and well behaved kids but you don't even know where to start with the tantrums and disobedience.
You try so hard to be consistent but sometimes another trip to time out just feels like too much effort.
I get it. Girl, I am in the thick of it right there with ya.
I'm not a perfect parent. None of us are. But, I have some tips that work really well for my two very strong willed in totally different ways boys.
Here's the thing... you can do this. You just have to start.
your biggest struggle right now is discipline.
