It took us 9 months, but we're finally back to doing it.
date night 🥂
seriously though, it has been a big step in getting back to a place of unity after having a baby. your whole relationship changes once you become parents. while i love bryn more than i ever thought possible, it has still changed the way we are as a couple. getting out together has really been great for the soul. time when we can just sit down and focus on each other.
now we just need to get better at documenting them. i snapped this photo 30 seconds before running out the door and i know we can do better 😂 but baby steps.

Ok, i’m actually quite nervous posting this photo! i put up a very similar one a few weeks ago, with the intention to show off how cute and practical our little backpack harnesses are. whenever i put stories up of us out and about using these, i get so many dms asking where to buy them and how good it is to see another mama using them. i know there’s so many of you who wish you could use them too without fear of judgment from others.
well i originally posted the photo feeling quite pleased with myself as the boys are grinning ear to ear, showing off how much they love wearing their furry puppy friend backpacks with harnesses attached, but then i realised after half an hour, oh crap!! ..some people really do have a problem with them?! i actually don’t have a very thick skin for negative comments, and i definitely don’t have head space to deal with any drama, especially on instagram, my happy place, so i deleted the post after reading one particularly harsh comment, not ready to deal with any others that may have come up at the time.
but a few of you messaged asking why i deleted it.. and it’s reminded me again of why i wanted to post it in the first place: to say it’s so ok if you’d like to use these too!
every child is so different. i believe it’s much kinder to let super active toddlers (and twins) run around safely on a harness than kept them strapped miserably into a pram or stroller. (some children love their strollers or are happy to stick very close to their parents, and that’s amazing, but it’s got so much to do with each child’s personality, and not necessarily a reflection of the parenting they’re growing up with).
it’s so sad that others cast judgement at all, let alone on mama’s wishing to give their children freedom and safety in this way.
so despite feeling anxious about posting this again, it’s up!
we all do the best we can. and ultimately, the most important thing of all is to love our children unconditionally, and set the example of loving others without judgment. this is the part of parenting we should focus on.
(please be kind in the comments section 😜😘).

Does it ever feel like everything breaks down at the same time? #ad when it rains it pours! ☔️ we have a major roof leak from the massive rains and may need a new roof. my car hasn’t started on its own for two days in a row without a jump (so have to get the battery pack checked out asap). whenever things feel overwhelming, i love to head outdoors and take a walk. what do you do to clear your head?

it’s nice to have packable protein with me at all times to stay on track with my health and fitness goals - even when out and about. epic bars are totally gluten free, grain free, soy free, dairy free. in addition, @epicbar are packed with the highest quality animal meat available, 100% grass-fed, and no added sugar. @krogerco @ralphsgrocery #krogerepic
