What I’ve learned from having 2 girls.

This post was sponsored by Cubbie Lee Toys. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.   I honestly never thought I would have two girls. Jerod and I thought we’d only have two children. That wasn’t the case. Ainsley gave us a run for our money. She’s a feisty, loving, red-head! She is super hard headed but has a beautiful, tender heart. She doesn’t like confrontation at all and will run and hide instead talking about what she did…

My go to pumping accessories!

This post contains affiliate links. You may or may not know this but breastfeeding did not come easy the third time around like I thought. With Oakland and Ainsley I wasn’t able to breastfeed either and exclusively pumped for 11 months with Oak and 10 months with Ainsley. I could not believe I pumped so long with them because I worked full time as a 1st grade teacher! I would pump in my classroom, the bathroom that was in between…

How the 3rd baby changed me

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. No one really prepared me for my third child. Why should they? I have already birthed 2 other children. I had this under control. I knew what to expect and how I was going to feel. I was wrong. No one told me that breastfeeding wouldn’t be easy. No one told me that I might experience postpartum anxiety( didn’t know that was even a thing).…
