My two sweet girls—one giving little kisses, the other giving little kicks! ☺️ It’s hard to believe we are 30 weeks along now! 💕 I get so excited at the thought of Clara becoming a big sister and watching their sibling bond grow! 💓 But also a little nervous as I think of the transition from one to two. I know there will be challenging moments and yes, the sweetest of moments too—But it’s just so hard to know what to expect! If you’ve been through this transition before and have any words of wisdom or helpful tips, I’d love to hear them! ☺️ These two girls are my world and at the end of the day, I just pray they both always feel secure, special and loved beyond measure.❤️

The twins are getting to the stage where they really love picture books! It’s so fun to see all the things they’re catching onto and how fast they’re learning!! 😍😍

Because today has thrown me for a loop with getting a baby out in the pouring down rain and freezing weather for a few hours getting the boys from school and such, my car not starting while in the midst of it and my hubby having to come jump my car off, and more things that I’m not going to share here. So, it’s a rainy-after-school-pile-in-the-bed-movie kind of afternoon and I’m smiling about it. Putting the chores off another day and filling my cup instead 🤗 #scootonoverkids

Hi friends, I’m Mary. 👋🏻
Both girls are napping, so I thought it would be fun to do a little introductory post for all of my followers.
+ I was born in Florida, but grew up in west Tennessee and currently live on the opposite end of the state now - true southerner through and through.
+ I’m married to the love of my life, @thywillsarge and I stay at home with our two beautiful daughters - Elliotte Rose + Willow James.
+ I am a Jesus follower and my life would be a disaster if I didn’t have His saving grace and mercy for the past 11 years.
+ I’m an enneagram 9w1 and an INTROVERT to the max. But if you’re around me long enough I’ll probably be one of your craziest friends.
+ When I’m not wiping poopy butts, I’m a freelance graphic designer and a lover of scalding hot coffee (if you give me lukewarm or cold, I’ll spit it out if my mouth like God does with lukewarm Christians). 😝
+ And last but not least, my favorite feature about myself is my GREEN EYES!! Thank you, mama, for those good genes. I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 5, and when I find a good pair like these from @pixeleyewear I can’t pass them up. 👀 Their lenses filter out blue light, increase magnification, and eliminates glare to prevent eye strain. And since I’m on my computer/phone A LOT these have helped with my headaches! Look out for a giveaway with them later on this month.
+ NOW, tell me one feature (or more) you love about yourself below. 👇🏻 If you have to dig deep, do it, but encourage and compliment yourself today. #pixeleyewear#wearpixel#amberdenaepresets#tuesdayintroductions

It’s a 2 cups of coffee kind of day 😂 I’m realizing getting ready to leave the house with 2 kids is a marathon. We are just going to be EXTRA late everywhere we go now 🤷🏻♀️ #ineedacoffeeiv

Adventuring with my two 🐒🐒 🌲Halfterm off from school and I love spending all day with them. They are inseperable and it’s so beautiful seeing all the amazing things they get up to together. #gluedatthehip#sistersquad
I feel like, with kids, it's hard for them to make distinctions in their mind, and so if you want to instill a habit or tendency or quality, it has to be all in. In our house, we treat everything kindly...real animals, stuffed animals, real people, baby dolls...I think it's easier for them to comprehend "kindness" when it's 100% applied, versus only important in situations they might not understand the particulars of. Of course, that means that every night I give a boy AND his stuffed animal a drink of water, and that I have to name his friend of choice in the goodnight song, and that he takes solace in a giant bear's arms ("I love you so much," I heard him whisper to it 😂) but I wouldn't have it any other way.

You are everything and more my darling little girl. May you never loose your sense of wonder ♥️
Play hard, sleep harder.
He helped me take his kindergarten application into his new school this past week. They thought he was in first grade and asked me what day I wanted him to start. Laughing out loud but also sobbing. At least my giant almost-five-year-old is still partial to his afternoon naps. He can grow up later.
Let's introduce Fit Dice 10 developer Marie! Mom of 3(soon to be 4), E-RTY200 yoga teacher, trainer and Pre/Postnatal fitness specialist. ♥️
Marie worked for many years as a birth doula and prenatal yoga teacher. After the arrival of her twins, she founded @kind.yoga.kids and began offering kids yoga & mindfulness as well as professional development for educators.
Marie developed Fit Dice 10 as a personal system for herself. Getting to the yoga studio or gym proved to be impossible. Working out at home with her 3 kids had its own challenges! Finding it difficult to even finish a yoga video.. she decided to jump into developing a system that worked for her! She came up with the 10 minute system that allowed her to get her full body workout in.. as well as much needed self care. Craving variety as well as efficiency, Fit Dice 10 was born. Marie is excited to share her system with other busy moms, women and men! Not that she has anything against the gym/studio...she just can't get there! 😆
