thebusybudgetingmama Tonight after Ben and I put the kids to bed, we sat at the kitchen table and cry laughed out of exhaustion over our kids. Cookies seemed like a good idea! I built two headboards and painted a room today and my body doesn't like me for it. Kids are so dang cute but wow they rocked me today. A good combo of cracking me up and making me want to pull my hair out. 1h

  •   lisabright5 Hang in there! I just had baby no.4 and life is so busy. Just busy. I feel like nothing is getting done 100%!! But it is ok, I just am not feeling very productive. Not a single task gets finished from beginning to end. Deep breaths! 40min

thebusybudgetingmama It's planning and prepping crunch mode for our Celebrate Motherhood Retreat on June 13th. I'm so excited for our girls night on next Thursday at my mom's house. Gonna gather with friends, bake cookies and pray for the women coming. It feels bigger than just planning an event. I really feel like the speakers' topics and the conversations that will happen and the closing worship time are going to be so important for the women coming. I can't wait to be in the room with everyone and have community! If you're nearby or even far away, but know people who need to hear about this day, join our share program! (I linked it on my blogs Facebook!) Earn $$ with every ticket. Thanks for being a part of this day! Link to event page in my IG Bio. @happymommybox wants to #celebratemotherhood with you! 4h

  •   ashley_newhouse I love the games where I am able to sit the whole time and they don't think twice about it. We do this a lot with grocery store while I'm the cashier. Or I'll send them on a scavenger hunt and have them bring their precious treasure back to mommy who just so happens to be laying on the couch But I can't even imagine doing it with three and pregnant! You are amazing and a daily inspiration. Thanks for all your posts. God bless your family. 8h

thebusybudgetingmama When my girls go out to play they usually end up with a little dirt on them. When Micah goes out to play he gets ALL the dirt on him, sweats, turns the hose on?? and face plants bushes. It's a whole other ball game with this kid. -- June is here! If you're a blog or brand and interested in having an ad spot on my blog/social media shares, email me! Would love to help you reach your marketing goals! Natalie@thebusybudgetingmama.com.

thebusybudgetingmama Stars, stripes and a baby bump. (Due october 1st) Nausea has come back with a vengeance. The worst at night when kids are asleep and I have no distractions. Starting to think it's a girl cause my bump feels high. But who knows! I was super sick with Micah, and the worst yet this time around. (Top from @target clearance. $13 super comfy) 2d
  •   susanwaltersbrown Love your hair! 2d
  •   my_psychic_mingle Cute 2d
  •   katieannosborne Ugh I'm so sorry. I'm in my first trimester with #2 and battling the nausea too! Someone else told me today that their morning sickness progressively got worse with each child . 2d
  •   marciehalden @simplystavish I'm with you girl ;( 2d
  •   foodnfitdiaries Sorry you're dealing with the nausea! You sure do look adorable. I'm due October 2nd! 2d
  •   gunnsfitness I mixed spark and rehydrate every morning to help with my morning sickness. Our team of mommies all swear by it. Hope you start to feel better. We welcome our girl to the family 5/26. The most amazing gift from God. I'm so in love 1d
  •   valeriedarragh @thebusybudgetingmama I'm thinking girl now too!!!! 1d

thebusybudgetingmama Micah's low voice when he is being silly cracks me up. He is my fixer and builder and I love how he calls m&m's, beans and the girls ienna and fofie. He will be three in November and I love this age! He can communicate, but still feels little. 2d

thebusybudgetingmama I was a little worried they "loved" their seeds to death, but we have growth!! We discovered this after hearing the girls squealing, and thinking someone was being attacked by a wild animal. Micah wanted to be a part of the fun, so he grabbed a helmet for a photo prop. yay for parsley! 3d

  •   ejrindal @thebusybudgetingmama cute swim suit cover ups are my secret to fashionable, comfy and cool summer maternity wear! I love h&m cover ups, they look great with leggings and cute sandals and no one can tell you're wearing a cover up. I just wish I would have figured this out with my last two pregnancies! 4d
  •   ifalc For the record, when I was pregnant with Jude my good girlfriends were like, "Ibie, you are NOT a beautiful pregnant lady." It's okay. It was true. You, on the other hand, are radiant! 3d

thebusybudgetingmama Went on a 45 minute adventure to pick up this Craigslist find from a lady at chickfila! Best $20 I've spent all month! It's so sturdy and cute!! And she gave us a bag filled with almost brand new puppets. I'm seeing hours of play time here and my sanity slowly coming back to me... Haha. The kids are so happy right now! Put it in the playroom and they immediately started working on their first puppet show and serving up tomato soup through the window at the same time. Cafe "Uppet." 4d

thebusybudgetingmama The past couple days Sophie and Sienna have been playing with beads and making jewelry while Micah naps. The beads were still on the floor when he woke up today...Let's just say it took us a long time for clean up.......No, they are not rockets Micah. No "booming". 1w
