We need to teach our children 𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐲 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 💕 . . . Today is about putting yourself in others shoes at Liv’s school! This entire week is dedicated to learning the importance of inclusion, not isolating others and how to create meaningful connections in your school community. . . Olivia has a kind heart and is also shy like her mommy❤️ I Never want her to feel left out or isolated. It’s hard to put yourself out there sometimes. This age group is critical for their self esteem and confidence. They want to be accepted by their peers. . . This hits home for me because one Sunday night Liv cried to me about how she felt left out (isolated) and didn’t at to go to school anymore 😢 My heart shattered 💔 I know how she was feeling and it killed me. . . She told me how on the playground she went to play with some friends but they said no and then how she went to a choice table in her classroom and they said she couldn’t join them. Now there could have been too many kids at the table and who knows what’s behind the circumstances. The bottom line is she felt isolated, unimportant and completely alone! . . She said “mommy I don’t know what to do.” I said, “Liv you keep being kind, go play with someone else, and pray for their hearts to be kind.”🙏 . . . . Put yourself in others shoes (empathy) and ALWAYS CHOOSE KINDNESSES ✌🏼❤️

I feel a strong push and pull in the season of motherhood that I’m in right now. A push to take care of myself, but also meet the never ending needs of two little humans. The pull of wanting to do it all, and lowering my expectations because doing it all is impossible. . Then there’s the internal push and pull. Right now I feel that love everyone talks about. That instant connection and joy moms are sold. I never felt that with my first, and although I had come to terms with it, right now the mom guilt has set in. I can’t help it, and I’m not fighting it. But I am reminding myself daily, not to compare these two experiences. In the grand scheme they are apples and oranges. A and I went through a journey that was filled with a lot of tears, heart ache, self-doubt, and pain. But we found so much love, together. I wouldn’t trade those first 4 years for anything. And now our journey includes Adlee. It’s ok if it’s a happy one. As an advocate, sometimes I feel like I live in the suffering too long (does that even make sense?! 😬). It’s why I’ve taken a bit of a step back, and have tried to just enjoy this moment. . So here’s my reminder, and yours, that it’s ok to celebrate after a storm ✨ 📸: @nicolejohnphoto . . #postpartum #postpartumsupport #maternalmentalhealth #themillennialmomblog #motherhonestly #motherhoodunderstood #postpartumjourney #momsofinstagram #njmom #njblogger #hellomytribe
