3 Boys In 3 Years


If you would have told me even 5 years ago that I'd be standing in my kitchen today blogging about how I had 3 boys in 3 years with my husband, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say I would have told you that you're crazy  :)

It's funny to see how life unfolds and all that happened to bring you to where you are today.

Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being a wife and mother. I know it might sound silly, but there were so many times that I was scared that wouldn't happen. I'm so beyond thankful that God knew the desires of my heart and has blessed me far beyond what I could have ever dreamed of.


I was 19 when I got pregnant.

Then my husband and I got married, we had our first son and my world was forever changed.

Then 21 months later we had our second son.

And then 19 months later we had our third son.

Cash and Takoda are 3 years and 4 months apart.

I often can't believe I have 3 boys and I'm only 23 years old.

It all happened much quicker than I thought it would, but I'm so happy it did.


But the reality of having 3 kids in 3 years?

It's challenging, I won't lie.

It's exhausting (both physically and mentally), it's defeating and it's frustrating.

I have to discipline my 3 and 1 year old every single day.

I have to keep them from being mean to each other and constantly make sure they're being careful around the baby.

There's potty training and currently two kids in diapers, so lots of poop to clean everyday.

Then sometimes while I'm trying to sit down and breastfeed Takoda, Stetson likes to throw yogurt at the furniture and walls. Or put stuff in the toilet. Or pick fights with Cash.
He's always naughty when I'm trying to take care of the baby, so that's a struggle.

And of course there's always someone to feed, laundry to be washed, dishes to be done and so. much. more.


BUT...

It's all worth it.

My husband and I built this family together and it is such an amazing feeling looking at these 3 boys and knowing we made that together. Our love went from just the two of us and grew to what it is now, these 3 little boys.

Each new smile the baby has, or new word Stetson says, or new thing Cash learns is so rewarding.

Those moments are what makes it all so worth it.

Each cuddle, kiss, and giggle fill my heart with so much love and make those hard days just a little bit better. :)

I often wonder what life will look like in 5 or 10 years, especially since 5 years ago I had no idea that this is what life would look like for me right now.

I am so thankful for these 3 boys that call me momma.

What a wild ride these last 3 years have been, but boy have they been amazing.

Now I'm off to go cuddle my baby and thank God for blessing me with these precious boys.


Have a great day, friends.

Xoxo,

Mandy The Momma

I'm going to apologize in advance if this is all over the place. Hahaha. Blogging while your needy sick toddlers are around isn't the easiest and I've thought of a million different things I want to talk about as I've been writing, so this may seem a bit scatterbrained. Lol. But hopefully this can help some of y'all that have wanted to start doing this! I enjoy being honest with you guys and hope that you all know how thankful I am for every one of you that I have connected with online!

If you've been following me on Instagram for awhile, you'll know that I haven't been doing this for a long time. In fact, my first collaboration wasn't even until around April of this year, so I've only been doing this for around 9 months. I'm still very …

Bloomlife Pregnancy Tracker + Contraction Monitor Review

I can't believe that as of today I am 34 weeks pregnant. This pregnancy has flown by and we are so close to meeting our third son! I've had the opportunity to try a product recently that has been incredible and I'm so excited to share about it with you guys. I'll be sharing about the Bloomlife contraction monitor in this post and sharing my honest review.

Most of you know this is my third pregnancy. Now, I'm no expert at motherhood and pregnancy, but I do have some experience since this is my third time around. With my first two sons, I never felt any Braxton Hicks. Braxton Hicks are contractions that occur before real labor. They are normal to experience and they are not a sign that you're about to give birth. I like to think of them as the bodies way of preparing for labor. They can start fairly early in your pregnancy and you might not even know that you're experiencing them.  (A good thing to remember about Braxton Hicks and real labor contractions is …

Instagram Tips + Tricks

So you want to increase your engagement on your posts? Perhaps you have a small business and you feel like your posts aren't getting seen? Or maybe you're a mom like me trying to do this whole influencer thing and want your engagement to be better? I'm sharing some tips and tricks that I've learned along the way to help you out and teach you how to best use Instagram.

It would be nice if Instagram weren't all about numbers, but let's not kid ourselves. It is. Most people want to reach the 10k mark so they have the swipe up feature for their followers. And a lot of companies tend to reach out to accounts with large followings. It makes sense, it's business. But don't let it get you down. I myself have 5k followers and I'm not letting that keep me from trying to grow my page and get out there.

So, let's talk engagement real quick. If you don't know what engagement means, I'll break it down for you. A lot of companies that work with influe…
