Haven’t been feeling well lately and super home sick. I’ll probably be a little MIA. Who else is living away from their family? What do you do to help with feeling homesick?
On the plus side, my hair is getting super long! .

Starting Jediah early on shed hunting with daddy and Uncle Timmy! 🦌 (although he slept the whole time! Haha)
It was almost 60° yesterday and it felt so nice to get outside and go for a little hike! .

I just made the cutest set of neutral bunny ears. The inside of the ears is even fuzzy 😍🐰 😍
Used my new Morning Start body wash from YoungLiving and it’s amazing! It left my skin feeling so soft and refreshed. It didn’t leave any residue and it smells SO GOOD! 🌿🌿
This body wash is combined with peppermint, lemongrass and rosemary to uplift and energize, while juniper is purifies and cleanses the skin. 🌻🌻
For my sensitive skin this is perfect 🤗

Last week I was faced with a project. .
I kept putting it off and putting if off. .
It felt like a HUGE bag of rocks that I was carrying on my back all of the time. .
I did everything that I could do to avoid doing it. I worked on other projects. Watched some Scandal on Netflix. Even cleaned my house.😬😬😬 .
I put it off because I immediately realized that it was going to be a time consuming project. .
This realization was overwhelming so I had a ton of thoughts about how long it was going to take and how hard it was going to be. How I just didn't want to do it. 😪😪😪
My second realization was that I had failed to create a system to do it efficiently. .
After a few days of watching Olivia nail the bad guys in Scandal, I sat at my computer and created a system. .
A system that allowed me to get the project done in half the time and get rid of the dread. 🤩🤩🤩 .
As a result, I no longer put it off, it moved to the top of the list.
I used to badger myself with content creation, blog post creation, and even laundry! 🧥🧦👗 .
I just dove in and started doing. No plan. No thought of how to make it better and faster. I just did it. .
I dreaded ALL of it and I wasted a ton of time.⏰⏰⏰
Then one day I realized if I systematized the time consuming things that I did often, I could spend less time doing them and have more time doing the things I wanted to do (Scandal). .
I could also have more fun and have more time with my kids.🥰🥰🥰 .
Once I created the systems to shorten the time from start to finish, those same dreaded tasks became FAST and FUN!! .
I know that my life and business have only benefited from creating theses systems. .
Now that I see life with them, I will NEVER go back to the "fly by the seat of my pants" way of doing things.😃😃😃

Feeling kinda crappy today. Think I’m fighting something. I’ve felt completely run down, exhausted despite sleeping, headache, nauseated and just all over blah. Today’s view is rest time. I’m curled up in the chair with my favorite blanket, despite ac at 74, watching Matthews nap time favorite, or all time favorite, Wall-E. Nate just getting home working on homework and the littles relaxing with the movie. #excuseourchaos #boymom #vlogger #familyvlogger #momof5boys #viewfromthecouch #fromwhereisit

🌈I clearly have a saggy belly, extra body fat, cellulite, stretch marks. This photograph in which my belly fat is noticeable is a strong yet simple response to many AAHAAS 💥 and OHOOS 💥 about how well I maintain and manage to look picture perfect in the midst of leading a busy life and most importantly to all the darlings (seriously no offence meant here) asking me to take down pics for the fact that a little extra skin or fat is prominent.
I am happy 😃 🌈 about how I look and feel in my flawed and imperfect skin and body though I know I can be a lot better, fitter, stronger, healthier and leaner. But isn’t it all about my choice? .
‘🤍Flawed🤍’ is also beautiful. Learn to embrace your flaws and it will only take you a level higher. .
❌🚫⛔️Do not let the social media and its content take over and rule things in life for you ❗️
Amen 🙏 .

Morning smiles are the best!
I want to bottle up those little giggles so I can always remember these sweet moments with my first two babies...
Especially for the next time Ford chucks a corn muffin at my head. Or when Quinn reminds me that my butt is too big for the toilet 🤪
It is RARE that I get pictures of myself with the kids (even more rare that I do my hair and make up). So even though I am my own worst critic and usually cringe at pictures of myself, I will treasure these snapshots from such a fun stage of life with these two crazies 🤍
Any other mommas struggle getting in front of the camera with their kiddos?
I don’t wanna miss one smile, I don’t wanna miss one kiss. I just want to be with you, right here with you, just like this❤️❣️❤️ #boymom
Estaba pensando que no había tomado el tiempo de presentarme contigo, así que ahí van 5 cosas que no sabías de mí 🥰:
Soy Andrea, mamá de Bordito 🤱🏻 y...
1️⃣ La mamá que soy hoy no se parece nada a la mamá que creía que iba a ser (¿alguien más? 😂)
2️⃣ Durante mi incapacidad por Maternidad, hubo días que trabajé para mostrarme a mí misma que sí podía 💪🏼. Cuando Bordito cumplió 8 meses, mi esposo y yo decidimos que me quedara en casa (vuelve a leer el 1 😂) y heme aquí! Jaja ¡fue la mejor decisión para nuestra familia! 🥰
3️⃣ Nunca fui la niña que jugaba a arrullar a sus muñecas y darles de comer 🙈, yo era su maestra 🤪. Siempre me ha gustado aprender y enseñar 😊. Ahora disfruto como no tienes idea ser mamá ♥️
4️⃣ Me he enamorado de lo relajado que es aplicar Montessori en casa (ha sido todo un proceso) pero gracias a eso no me estreso si no aplaudió hasta los 10 meses y si empezó a caminar con su barra a los 6 😊, solo disfruto observarlo y seguirlo en su desarrollo.
5️⃣ Tengo la espinita de lanzar un blog donde pueda compartirte más detalles de Maternidad, Misiones y Montessori en casa peeeero a) me da nervio si habrá mamás interesadas en leerlo (¿te gustaría?) y b) no sé si empezarlo en inglés o en español 😂 HELP!.
⠀ ⠀ 💬 I hadn’t taken the time to introduce myself with you, so I’m sharing 5 things you didn’t know about me.
I’m Andrea, Bordito’s mom 🤱🏻and...
1️⃣ the mom I am today is nothing like the mom I thought I would be (anyone else? 🙋🏻♀️)
2️⃣While I was on my maternity leave, I worked several times to prove myself that it was possible. Once Bordito turned 8 m/o my husband and I decided that I would stay at home and here I am! (Recall #1)
3️⃣I never was the girl who rocked her babies to sleep or fed them, I always played to be their teacher. Now I can’t put into words how much I love being a mom ♥️.
4️⃣ I’ve fallen in love with a Montessori style of parenting because of how relaxed it is! I don’t stress about him reaching specific milestones at certain age, I just sit back and enjoy his own process!
5️⃣ I’d love to have a blog to share more details but don’t know if I should write it in English or Spanish 🤷🏻♀️. HELP!
Instead of being completely unplugged, I have instead been limiting my time on social media during little i’s awake times. Starting today! —- my phone is my main source of documenting my life, so it’s not going to be put away lol⠀
This is one of the habits I would start to change but then quit a few days into it. I’m still on when little i is awake because dang it, sometimes there is an opportune moment for the perfect filter to be used (see the glitter on black I used this morning on Mya!).⠀
This morning, during a brief window into Spring weather, we spent a few minutes outside drawing with chalk and running around. Okay, okay… I did all of the drawing while someone else ran around, but it’s fine.⠀
How can you unplug from social media/technology and plug back in to your own life?⠀

Happy 4th Birthday Maverick Ren 🎉
You are loving, so smart, full of opinions, love to tell long stories (just like daddy 😉), give the best hugs, mostly sweet with a touch of sour and more than I could have ever dreamed of ✨
4 years ago, you made me a Mommy and it’s been the best years of my life so far. I love you sweet boy ❤️
Just a few more pics that @thetrippihippie captured for our special day❤️

Do you ever struggle with something over and over? Does a certain struggle... or two, keep coming, almost in cycles? Like, well I have been doing good for a while so time to wrestle with it again. Maybe it is a relationship, your health, your fitness goals, consistency, work, your time and relationship with the Lord. Whatever it may be, there is hope. For the longest time I did this to myself and would roller coaster in many areas of life including my weight, relationship with God, and even with others. If things would fluctuate or I would fail at perfection, I would allow the enemy to whisper lies of the failure I was. I would begin to take on pieces of those lies as my identity. “I will ALWAYS fail at this” “I will NEVER be the way I want in this area” “ I am just not made for [that]”. WRONG.WRONG.WRONG.
Friends! God has called us worthy! We fail because we are human! That is our nature, but when we are made new through Christ, he clothes us with a new identity and he chooses us, even in our imperfection and rebellion. That is huge! Failing (at times) may be what I do, because we live in a fallen world. But, it is not who I am. The enemy loves to take that self doubt and help me sit in it and fester. But God is good to remind me that is not who I am. His ways are higher than ours and although we might take a bumpy ride, we do not have to sit in the ditches.
I hope if you are in the midst of a struggle or have been focused on you failures that you would lift your eyes to the one who has already granted us victory and believes you are worth saving!

It’s all about B-A-L-A-N-C-E !!
Most times outside of uniform I look like the first and last picture. Between taking care of our home, finishing my degree, spending time with my family, making sure work is taken care of, and scheduling ME TIME, it’s worth it.
Don’t get me wrong, I often get overwhelmed, especially with last minute changes in plans... the military makes sure of that... but I wouldn’t change the cards I’ve been dealt because I know all the stress and work I experience now will pay off in the near end. .

Hey, we’re the Hay fam... & we have a lot of kids. 😂 A bunch of new friends here so we just wanted to say welcome and share a little bit about us in case you’re new. In a nutshell, we met once and then had our first official date in a foreign country, traveled around Europe together that summer, and were then engaged, switched continents (Syman is Australian and moved to America), got married, and had our first child all within a year — when you know you know, right? After battling secondary infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, we got the shock of our lives and conceived #quadruplets using follistim + timed intercourse (a fancy way of saying made at home with some help 😉) and now we’re living our own version of happily ever after here in New Jersey, hot mess Hay style. Bonus fact: @syman_1 doesn’t have a second daughter as this picture might suggest — just a wife who is an entire foot shorter than him. 😂 We try to keep it as real as possible around here, give hope and inspire, and we’re excited to share our journey with you on the gram and on YouTube (link in bio!) Since travel is such a huge part of our relationship, we think it would be cool for you to drop a comment below and let us know where you’re from and when you started following along! Thanks for joining the crazy. 💛🇺🇸🇦🇺
Lazy Saturdays💙 Stay in a onesie, drink milk, nap, cuddle and repeat. We are definitely craving some warm weather, I don’t know how many more days I can spend inside 😭 That groundhog better have been right!
Life update with a four year old:
Parker learned the phrase “butt crack” at school. He says it 500 times a day now. Whenever I ask a question, the answer is ALWAYS “butt crack.”
He’s stubborn and opinionated and does everything at his own pace. It takes three outfit changes and two shoe changes to get out the door, and because he’s so assertive and opinionated he has to do everything himself.
He can be very competitive and aggressive towards his little brother, but he’s very protective of him when we’re outside the house.
He’s super into pizza, bread, chicken tenders and loves to watch anything train related on YouTube.
He also recently started basketball practice - we just drop him off & leave and it makes me feel like he’s in high school.
He’s incredibly smart, has a remarkable memory and literally shows zero patience after asking for something.
THIS IS FOUR. 💕👦🏼
That #littlebrother life 😂
I’m the youngest in my family, was never team captain of any team, am an #enneagram7 & a #Pisces... being in charge makes me so uncomfortable. But here I am, building a business that allows me to stay home with these dudes. Don’t let your resume be your excuse. Make shit happen. K, bye.
Nakey babies 😍😍
Bodhi has come a long way with his vocabulary since getting to AU. For the longest time, I was the only person on the planet that could understand him. On multiple occasions people would ask me if he spoke Korean. I’d always respond with “if he does, he didn’t learn it from me.”
The issue was never him actually speaking, because he has always done that excessively. The issue was that he rarely used actual words and if he did, they weren’t very clear.
His delayed speech was hard on me as a first time mom. It’s not easy when people ask you if you’re worried about your child. It made me question myself and my motherly instincts that were telling me he was fine. So obviously, I brought it up to his pediatrician who told me I shouldn’t worry until he was 3.
Even so, when he was 1, I had his hearing checked just to make sure that had nothing to do with it. He passed that test with flying colors. I wrote emails to his head + neck specialist who clipped his frenulum when he was tongue tied as a baby because she told me his extremely posterior tie may cause speech issues in the future...she too told me to wait until he was around 3yo to worry.
Not once have I ever doubted his intelligence. I’m impressed by him daily.
So instead of comparing his speech to other kids or spending any more time worrying about it- we just continued to do things we always did...we read books, used flash cards, sang songs, worked on the alphabet and numbers.
Fast forward and here we are...Bodhi is 3yo. Am I worried? Not one bit. Not only do I feel like Louis from Family Guy everyday (“Mom. Mommy. Mom. Mama. Mommmmm. Mama. Mommy. Mom. Louis!”) but Bodhi knows the alphabet, he can count (even in Spanish,) he sings songs, he uses multiple syllable words, he has impeccable manners and everyday he wakes me up saying, “good morning mama, how’d you sleep?”
If this journey has taught me anything, it’s been to trust my motherly instincts. It’s so easy to compare kids but every child is different and on their own time. At the end of the day, you know your baby. Trust that and trust that you know what’s best for your little one.
1000% making them redo this as adults. I don’t care if they won’t fit in the bathtub then, we’ll have to use a a hot tub but it’s happening 😂
