​Here’s something I just can’t wrap my head around; how moms, new and old, don’t take time for a shower every day. I need a shower every day and not purely for hygiene reasons either. That hot shower is my five minutes to myself, a gift purely for me and not anyone else. Most days there’s a toddler or a baby in there with me- that’s a post for another day- but I always take the time to shower because it makes me feel human and ready to tackle the day; whether my day involves cleaning house or running errands around town.

I’ve heard it over and over again- I just didn’t have time to shower/wash my hair/brush my teeth/etc. Ladies, you are worth those precious minutes. Your babies and children will survive the time it takes to complete those basic tasks, even if they cry the whole time. I promise you will not do them irreparable harm from letting them cry while you shower, contrary to what you’ve ready on Scary Mommy. You will be a better parent after taking care of you, I promise. Maybe it’s not a shower either, maybe you need an hour in the gym or thirty minutes to walk around the block or to nap! It’s ok to take care of you. I’m going to say that again because it’s important- It’s ok to take care of you.
​So go ahead and shower. You can thank me later. -Kristen Jokenin BS, DONA Trained Doula .

We were finally able to take our first bump picture at 18 weeks. On Thursday November 16th, we found out baby Willoughby is a BOY! Then on Friday November 17th, I woke up with a very obvious “bump.” We are very excited for our little Isaac Michael Willoughby. We chose Isaac from the Bible, meaning ‘he will laugh, he will rejoice.’ He will also be named after his daddy Jared Michael, & his papaw Michael. 💙💙💙 #fortsill #bct #bctgraduation #armywife #18weeks #babybump #itsaboy

I’ve never been so proud of an individual in my life. To start off the Family Day ceremony, the top 10% graduating got promoted. Jared already went in as an E-2 & yesterday he got promoted to E-3. Say hello to PFC Willoughby 😍😍😍 He texted me right as we were pulling in to let me know that he chose me for the honor of promoting him & changing out his patches! This was the BEST anniversary gift ever. ❤️❤️❤️ #fortsill #bct #bctgraduation #promotion #armywife #pfc

A lot has changed in the past 2 years. We moved from NC to MD to AZ. My health went downhill when I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year. Looking back I’m pretty sure I had symptoms of it when we lived in NC. February of this year I started Thrive & I’ve finally been able to lose weight after being stuck for 5 years!! I feel better than I have in a very long time. I actually love exercising 💪🏻🏃🏽‍♀️.
