I know you’re not supposed to have favorites. And obviously that is something we would never do!! Instead, we just rank them highest to lowest. It changes by the day. Sometimes by the hour. Okay... every moment. Just in an effort to keep it fair!⠀
This girl has been at the top of my list for a while now. Mainly because I’m at the top of hers!! She gives me an endless amount of hugs, love, kisses and snuggles. Melts my heart with the way she says “Wub You Too, Mama!!” and “Otay, Mama!” Everywhere I go, she is right there by my side. And no matter how many times I wish to visit the bathroom in silence, I’m thankful for my mini shadow. Because soon enough there will come a day when she doesn’t want all of me all the time!!⠀
So tell me the truth... do you have a favorite or are you like us and it changes every day? Be honest 🤪
My favourite photos are never the ones I plan out. I was trying to get a shot of them jumping on the bed when Quinn asked to borrow my camera and started directing Mila like she was at a photo shoot. My child definitely likes to be in charge. Not sure who she got that from 🤷🏼♀️😳
These amazing people call me Mama, sometimes Ma! When they were little I wanted to change my name, especially when they called for me when I was in the bathroom.
I’m so thankful I didn’t change my name. To hear them call me now is like hearing my favorite song on the radio. Usually they call me to talk over some situation with college stuff.
Sometimes they call just to say,”I love you!” Building a relationship with your children is filled with interruptions, but so worth every one!
Burn Boot Camp Hoover is growing! Meet our new Burn Ambassador, Andrea!
Andrea is an artist by trade, painting reclaimed wood signs for a living for the past 9 years. To her, maintaining muscle strength and cardio endurance has been essential to being physically capable of the demanding labor required to (wo)manhandle wood boards all day long.
But, she’s not all serious business. She ascribes to the motto -- Attitude is everything. Life is 10% of what you make it and 90% of how you take it. She figures, life may as well be enjoyable! So, don’t be surprised when she starts dancing to the music during a workout and raises her hand high when Head Trainer Steve asks “Who loves burpees?” Knowing what it’s like to be “the new kid on the block”, it’s her goal to make everyone around her feel included and empowered (and as a bonus -- enthusiastic!) The more she witnessed and experienced that welcoming and encouraging feeling at Burn Boot Camp, Andrea couldn’t help but be attracted to the environment.
Andrea is married to her husband of 18 years. They have a 12-year-old daughter and a 9-year-old son and have lived here in Hoover for 11 years.
Please give Andrea a warm welcome!! 💙👏🏼👏🏼 There’s still time to sign up for our FREE 30 day trial! 👉🏼 burnbootcamp.com/Hoover (Link in Bio 👆🏼)
Today as I waited in the school pickup line, I thought a lot about the idea of being a perfect mom and having it all together. After I got the kids, we stopped at a gas station for a snack. The sweet women working behind the cafe counter said so genuinely, “ I miss having my kids that age. Don’t worry about what your house looks like or what your car looks like. The time goes by too fast”. And it’s true. We need to give ourselves grace where we fail. If something really does matter to you, take proactive steps in that direction. Forgive yourself as you wobble , it’s part of the process.
Every day, I pick up Abbey from pre-k (had day) and every day she asks to go “somewhere.” Well most Times we hit up target and browse or we pick up random items from the market.
Today, we stopped at the coffee shop and she requested chocolate milk. We usually get a little carton but today she got warm milk in a tiny @starbucks cup.
You would think she won the lottery today! Her tiny #starbucks cup made her day. Her very own mermaid cup 😍 🧜♀️ #toddlerfirsts#mommyandme#coffeeshopvibes
I’m so dang proud of myself! I’ve gone from drinking less than a cup of water a day in 2018 to 3L of @flow Naturally Alkaline Spring Water every single day so far in 2019 and I’m sure my body (and that baby boy inside of me) are thanking me for it. Oh yeah, Ava’s pretty proud of me too. [ad]
The first week was pretty rough with a 7 month pregnant bladder + that feeling of being so full that I didn’t think I could drink anymore quickly dissipated by week 2 and one night, I even woke up feeling like I needed more water. In just two weeks, I’ve made my body healthier and I cannot be more proud of even that little accomplishment. Let’s do this, week 3 💪🏼 #TheFlow30
