Tener hijos significa mucha responsabilidad y perder la privacidad; tu rutina ya no será despreocupada, puesto que todo tu tiempo lo dedicas a las necesidades de los nuevos miembros de la familia. Si eres madre es algo con lo que seguro te sentirás identificada, pero si te estás preparando para ejercer este papel, las imágenes que presentamos a continuación te representarán en los próximos años.
Es casi seguro afirmar que las vacaciones de verano antes de tener niños significaba hacer viajes por carretera, tener tiempo libre y días de playa que acababan en un largo chapuzón en el mar con tu pareja. Sí, es verdad que aún teniendo hijos se puede hacer, pero las cosas cambian cuando llega una nueva faceta en tu vida llena de responsabilidades.
Para todos aquellos padres, las imágenes que presentamos a continuación mostrarán los veranos en los que seguro te verás reflejado.

So today I decided it was a great day to take the kids to the beach... except it's nothing like the carefree days of jumping in the car with a volleyball and bikini. . Now I need sunscreen, hats, waters, snacks, duct tape, 5 socket wrenches, probably a plunger, and who knows what else. ???? What are your must haves when going to the beach with the littles? . #ad P.S. if anyone is like me and needing to get their booty binki ready, I've partnered up with Jessica @bodyconnectionfitness to get you 10% off her 28 day booty blaster course, and 2 week healthy eating meal plan. Check out today's stories where I'll give you the direct link. Also, if your local #kelownaliving mama she has some fantastic courses you can also check out through the link! Xo

Help, I've been driving in circles trying to find my house. I'm pretty sure I use to live here, but there is no way my tranquil yard has turned into a little tikes grave yard. . I think I can officially say goodbye to the carefree last minute roadtrips with the hubby. Any suggestions for some kid friendly summer trips or activities to get the little ones out of the house?!

The sun is hot and my pool is cold...wait it's getting warmer...and my potty training toddler hasn't gone inside to pee all day???? . Hmmm I don't want to point any fingers, but I'm 100% positive she's been peeing in this thing all morning. ???? . Please mamas share with me you potty training woes so I have something to read while I enjoy some naptime sun in a pee filled pool. ???? #ellen15

For some reason no one wants to buy warm lemonade from my sticky fingered little kids. ???? . Luckily this mama is looking out for all the parents on the block that are tired of forking out 25 cents for subpar refreshments. ???? ???? . Anyone else feel super guilty when driving past a kids lemonade stand and not stopping? . P.S. I was scrolling through my blog this week and found an old huckleberry lemonade recipe I wrote a few years ago. I've linked it up for you all in my stories ????? #ellen15
"Si me escondo de mis hijos fuera, ¿se considera acampar?"
Gone fishing. Be back in 10...no 20...no actually I'm taking the day and I might not come back. Ok let's be real, the only fish I see these days are the goldfish shoved in between our couch cushions. . Fun fact: last time I went fishing I was 5 days overdue with Avery. I'll post the proof up in my stories. ???? . Anyone out there like to go fishing?...or are you more of a buy sushi from the store kinda mama? ????
"Me fui a pescar"
Somedays I just want to give up. Throw in the towel, walk out that door and never look back. Somedays I burn the toast, spill the milk, and yell at the kids. . Somedays I look in the mirror and see a sleep deprived, older version of someone I used to be. . But mamas, those are the days that truly show us how strong we are. It's ok to have bad days. To cry in the bathroom, or hide in the pantry. Just remember that your not alone. We are all going through this crazy adventure together, and you are so much stronger than you think you are. . When my mom was going through chemo, the girls and I would constantly send her encouraging letterboard quotes. You got this, was one that we never had the opportunity to send. I'm finally ready to recreate it as a reminder to myself that no matter what hard times we are faced with, we are never alone in our struggles. This is a reminder to me, and for all of you mamas that no matter what life throws at you, YOU GOT THIS. . Tag a beautiful mama below who might need a little reminder this week that she's got this!

"Querida mamá, sé que es duro, pero tú también pasaste por esto"
Well, today the girls and I had a big outing planned. We got dressed up, and headed to the mall to pick out the world's best Father's day gift. We were going to have ice cream, window shop, and I was even going to let Avery play on one of those spaceships that goes up and down 30 times. But of course when got to the mall this mom forgot her wallet *insert feelings of devistation and mom faliure* ???? ...so after digging around in the car for a bit, we managed to scrounge up $2.75, and headed to the dollar store. . Well dad, looks like your getting a plastic harmonica this year, but trust me, the girls searched high and low in that store for something perfect. At the end of the day I realized it's not about the amount we spent, but the thought and care that went into picking it out. So I hope your all having a great Father's day weekend and enjoying the memories more than the presents. Xo #whpplay . How are you celebrating Dad this year?
