amberthrane I took the kids to a birthday party today and discovered that chuck-e-cheese on a weekend is pretty much an introverts worst nightmare currently recovering with movies and popcorn in bed. (scored some extra mom points and movie cuddles with these cuties...worth it🏼) 7d

amberthrane Blueberry picking with ten kids means it's way too hard to get everyone in one picture, so here's the moms instead 🏼 2w

amberthrane My daughter made me a book at school for Mother's Day that all the kids gave to their moms saying all their favorite things about them and it was so amazingly cute but I haven't been able to shake this one page... It asked her to draw what I spend most of my time doing and where most of the kids drew their moms cuddling, reading or playing with them... My daughter drew me at my computer working. Tears. Ugly cry. The reality is i only work a few hours a day and sometimes not even that, but that's not what she sees. This overwhelming feeling of guilt has not left my body since and no matter how many times I try to spin things to make myself feel better it just sits there, all welled up in my chest. Today after dinner we walked to the pond and fed the ducks and I tried with all I had to be ALL there. I held her hand and listened to her talk, watched her little curls twirl in the wind and I soaked her all up. If anyone masters that unreachable, mystical unicorn thing called "work-life balance" tell me all your secrets. 2w
  •   tessaarmstrong8 Ugh I know the feeling all to well 2w
  •   xoxo.richellecote Oh mama, she knows you love her most. Don't beat yourself up, maybe have her sit with you someday and talk her through what you do, why you do it. Teach her it's your art, tell her you tell stories of people's lives through your art of picture taking.... I'm sorry sis- xoxo love you 2w
  •   kayla_sampson Oh Lovey!! I don't even have babies yet but I so know this feeling. Work life balance kind of feels like something we'll be chasing down an endless road! I won't be surprised if it's a lifelong challenge that we face over and over again in our ever changing lives but I know firsthand how much time, love and energy you poor into those babies. They are your everything and they know that! You're one of the BEST mamas I have ever known. Your work is an opportunity to be a great example to those kiddos. Where do you think Marley girl gets that entrepreneurial spirit? 🍋🍋Your babies are gonna continue dreaming big because they watched you go after your own dreams! 2w
  •   mamabear.getsfit Oh my goodness I hope I can find that balance too, it would crush me if my boys thought the same 1w
