Μια μητέρα δύο παιδιών από το Oregon, Portland, έδειξε τη γυμνή αλήθεια της καθημερινότητάς της.
Η 28χρονη Shannon Peterson αποκάλυψε στο λογαριασμό της στο Instagram πόσο ζόρικη είναι η ζωή της με ένα νεογέννητο και ένα νήπιο στο σπίτι, προσπαθώντας παράλληλα να εργαστεί.
Η Shannon προσπαθεί να θηλάσει το μωρό, να αντλήσει γάλα από το άλλο της στήθος και να δουλέψει στο λαπ τοπ απαντώντας σε μέιλ, τη στιγμή που ο τρίχρονος γιος της μαθαίνει πως να πηγαίνει στο μπάνιο και σιχαίνεται τις πάνες.
Η blogger που συχνά πυκνά «ανεβάζει» όμορφες φωτογραφίες με τα παιδιά της στο Instagram, αποφάσισε να αποκαλύψει την πραγματικότητα που ζουν πολλές γυναίκες γύρω μας.
A boob addict baby, and mid-potty training toddler who hates pants. Nursing on one side, pumping on the other, attempting to pack up orders, answer emails and sneak in bites of the peanut butter english muffin I made myself but that my toddler keeps insisting he needs (even though He has his own and he refuses to eat it… #toddlerlife). I’m surprised this spot in the couch doesn’t have a permanent indent yet. It’s one of two spots where I spend most of my days working / nursing / mom-ing and snuggling. Some of you may have seen where I was featured on HuffPo last week. It was an incredible experience and Taylor was amazing to work with. Since then, her article and my photo from two weeks ago have kind of taken off. These huge media platforms are reporting on my photo, and luckily for the most part I have received really positive feedback. It’s incredibly overwhelming to be in this position, and I’m so thankful to be able to share my truth. However, there is nothing special about me that deserves any type of praise or acknowledgement - I’m just me. A woman with two children and an ever present rainbow, who struggles more days than not. Who feels anxious and embarrassed and sweats and shakes when put in any type of spotlight. And I am lucky enough to have a heck of a supportive husband to keep things above water when I can’t. I am 1 in 4. I am 1 in 7. I am 1 in 5. As many truths as I share, there are more that I don’t. I am so glad that in our world today, we as people, as women, as mothers can talk more openly about our struggles and our darkness, but we still have a long way to go. I have been thinking about my “WHY” lately, and shared those thoughts in a new post today, because I'm too wordy for IG ❤️ - - - - #beautifulbfing #breastfeeding #breastfeedwithoutfear #breastfeedingmom #motherhood #fedisbest #darlingmovement #our_everyday_moments #bfing #breastfeedingisbeautiful #mommyandme #momlife #mommylife #noshame #normalizebreastfeeding #rainbowbaby #happymom #mamabear #theDulcetLife #boymom #feelthefeelings #joyfulmamas #liveauthentic #motherhoodunplugged #mybeautifulmess #ourcandidlife #ohheymama #momofboys #honestmotherhood
«Αν αναρωτιέστε πως είναι η ζωή μου αυτές τις μέρες, ιδού», έγραψε η μαμά η οποία προσπαθεί εμφανώς κουρασμένη να θηλάσει το νεογέννητό της πάνω σε μια μπάλα ισορροπίας.
Η ίδια τόνισε πως θέλει να κάνει μπάνιο δίχως να την αγγίξει κάποιος, το σπίτι της είναι ένα χάλι και πολλές φορές ξεσπά δακρύζοντας.
Just in case you thought my real life was anything like these tiny squares, I give you: this is 4 months. J has been an incredibly easy baby, from labor to delivery to him being *here*. But 4 months happened and his needs have grown tenfold. The other day I spent THREE HOURS like this, people. J had to be swaddled, on his back, in my arms. While I was bouncing on my giant exercise ball (never once used for it's intended purpose). With my boob perfectly resting in just the right spot on his chin. Our house was (is) a mess, my breakfast (lactation smoothie) sitting abandoned behind me, dirty hair and desperately in need of a shower (and 5 minutes without someone touching me) - and at the brink of tears. I mean, I was too lazy to even take the sticker from our movers off the stability ball ? and I'm pretty sure you can see the remnants of my snowflake crafting on the carpet next to the couch I forgot to clean up. The truth is, this is who I am most days. Not a put together human who has her act together. Not a mom who can juggle working from home, kids, etc. I'm just a crazy person trying to maintain some semblance of calm while attempting to figure it all out. Counting down the hours until bedtime and the kids are asleep, and then that first delicious sip of Gin & Tonics or wine. And you better believe I VSCO and heavily edited the you-know-what out of this picture to make it look light and airy and "fit my feed". Because I'm stuck on the couch under a 4 month old cluster feeding little dude who won't have anything to do with anyone but me. - Here's to YOU mama, holding it together even when it gets rough. And even if you're not, you're still a part of this club of crazy. Anyone else having a really rough week? - - - - #beautifulbfing #breastfeeding #breastfeedwithoutfear #breastfeedingmom #motherhood #fedisbest #darlingmovement #our_everyday_moments #bfing #breastfeedingisbeautiful #mommyandme #momlife #mommylife #noshame #normalizebreastfeeding #rainbowbaby #happymom #mamabear #theDulcetLife #boymom #feelthefeelings #joyfulmamas #liveauthentic #motherhoodunplugged #mybeautifulmess #ourcandidlife #ohheymama #thehappynow #momofboys #honestmotherhood
«Ζω σε μια τρέλα και προσπαθώ να καταλάβω πως θα τα προλάβω όλα, μετράω τις ώρες για να φτάσει η στιγμή που τα παιδιά θα κοιμηθούν και θα πιω λίγο κρασί», συνέχισε η μπλόγκερ.
Φυσικά, μαμάδες από όλο τον κόσμο, έσπευσαν να γράψουν μια κουβέντα συμπαράστασης στη μανούλα, σε ένα ποστ που χρήστες από όλο τον κόσμο έχουν κοινοποιήσει ξανά και ξανά.
I want to cover you all in rainbows and hugs ❤️ thank you so much for all the love from my last post! 4 months is a wicked beast and not for the weak, and I've been overwhelmed with it all and trying to keep up appearances. I am glad it resonated so much with you all and that you appreciated seeing the more authentic side of things. So on that note, I'm going to make a huge effort to show off more of our real life. Including what it looks like when this mama is trying to start getting her body used to the pump again, but baby needs / wants to nurse and brother doesn't want to be left out of any part ?. My husband and I are going away for a few days for our anniversary coming up, and I've been putting off pumping because trying to find a time when J is NOT nursing is basically impossible. @bravadodesigns just released this crazy amazing "clip & pump" nursing bra attachment and I'm over here like ??? because now I can pump and nurse simultaneously without having to hold the pump to my breast - what whaaaattt?! The black portion you can see just clips right onto my body silk seamless bra (so I don't have to remove it ??) then I slide the pump flanges in (no need to remove the shields from the bottle!) and hit start! It's kinda sorta really incredible, and almost makes me hate pumping a little less ? - Who else pumps? Is there anything you've found that helps you get the best output? Or that makes it more comfortable? Tell me all your tips! - AD - - - - #easypumping #seamlesscomfort #beautifulbfing #breastfeeding #breastfeedwithoutfear #breastfeedingmom #motherhood #fedisbest #darlingmovement #our_everyday_moments #bfing #breastfeedingisbeautiful #momlife #mommylife #normalizebreastfeeding #rainbowbaby #happymom #mamabear #theDulcetLife #feelthefeelings #joyfulmamas #liveauthentic #motherhoodunplugged #mybeautifulmess #ourcandidlife #ohheymama #thehappynow #momofboys #honestmotherhood #pumpingmom
Η Shannon εξήγησε πως δεν είναι η μόνη μαμά στον κόσμο που παλεύει και ευχαρίστησε τους πάντες για τα μηνύματα και την αγάπη τους.
