Sweet Mamas,

Life looks a little different these days, and I can honestly say that my heart is SO FULL.  All of the fears and worries about becoming a mama of multiples have been put to rest.  I thought I’d dig a little deeper into those feelings and share how life has changed now that I’m a mama of two.  I hope that you find this post encouraging in whatever season of life you may be in.  I’d love to hear your stories too, so please share below!  If there’s anything I’ve learned over the last two years, it’s that it DOES take a village!  I am convinced that the need for community and oxygen go hand in hand.  We’re in this together, sweet mamas!

FOR THE TIRED MAMA

Posted in FAITH, PARENTING WITH A PURPOSE
on October 1, 2016

I think of you.  I think of you in the late hours of the night, and before the sun rises in the morning.  While I am nursing my littlest babe, you are on my mind.  There’s something comforting knowing that there are mamas all around the world up at the wee hours of the night, when sometimes it feels like you’re all alone.  Exhausted beyond measure, and alone.  But, you’re not.

With my first, I was up every two hours for the first eleven months of his life, nursing him back to sleep.  While I loved nursing, and the bonding time with my babe, I was so tired IT HURT.  This time around, little Theo started sleeping through the night at a mere eight weeks old.  This was something I had prayed and prayed for, and I truly believe that the Lord provides us with what we need, exactly when we need it.  But, sleep or no sleep, being a mama is TIRING!

So, I’m here to ask all of you… How do you recharge?

And in regards to helping your babe sleep through the night… What has worked for you?  What hasn’t?  What would you do differently next time?  I love your feedback, and you never know what might help another mama!

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. | Isaiah 40:31

Run to Jesus, sweet mama, and find rest in Him.

Love + Hugs,
Skye
