Week 10 Post Partum Vlog by Teresa Palmer now posted!! 💙🙌🏻💙🙌🏻
Jessi Hempel reflects on the past year of her podcast, Hello Monday. Growing up, many of us were told to find something we loved to do. Now that we’re working, well, does anyone really love the daily grind all the time? “Eat, Pray, Love” author Elizabeth Gilbert suggested that maybe you should stop trying so hard. “You have your job that you go to to pay the bills,” she said. “A career is a job that you deeply care about...If you think you're in a career but you hate it and you're bored and it's killing you, quit it and just go get a job.” | link in bio |
Happy Father’s Day dudes. Hope for all of you out there to have a good peanut butter to your jelly, a great Mickey to your Minnie, and most importantly a beautiful yin to your yang. Happy Papa’s day. Thank you for all you do to help us hold this down. We love you. #happyfathersday
I was really excited (and intimidated) to interview Jessi Hempel. She is a brilliant writer, interviews some of the most forward thinking minds among us today, and has a beautiful baby with her partner, Frances. I am especially excited to be bringing you this interview during #LGBTQ pride month. While we’re grateful that we have come a long way since the Stonewall riots in 1969, we also know we have plenty of work to do when it comes to accepting, acknowledging, and showing kindness to those that may look different, be sexually oriented different, or talk different than we do. It’s reassuring to know that much of this generation is being raised with more sensitivity and awareness, and the more we can celebrate and tell everyone’s stories, the merrier we are. Thank you Jessi, you are a force and we are so happy to have crossed paths with you. interview by Kacy Byxbee, editor, Your Zen Mama @kacyhasfreckles now posted link in our bio!
You see this gorgeous mama next to me? We fell in love over a ponytail on a movie called #WalkofShame years ago and then went on to do a show called #marryme together. We have had our kids together and supported each other as our careers and families have grown. She had a baby 4 moths ago and has a toddler. I love her and I love her beautiful heart and her amazing husband and her kids. She called me last week to tell me she has stage 4 colon cancer. To say that I was shocked doesn’t even cover it. I thought she was calling for baby sleep advice or to talk about a new job she was thinking of taking. Our Friend @missalicemakingitsimple plotted a surprise with me to drive to the hospital that week and see her. We sat in her room we cried we laughed and we brainstormed all the ways we could help her and her family with this fight. Some of her friends put together a fund to help with all the expenses ahead. The link is in my bio and will be in my stories.. she also started a YouTube channel to talk through this process.. that will be in the link as well. We love you @meaganhshair 💙 #fuckcancer #repost

Anyone ever had an Ayurveda treatment? I went to @suryaspaayurveda last night to try their postpartum mother care - have you ever had a “V - steam” or a “basti” ? It was an incredible experience.. so beautiful to be around all these women who focus on mother baby during postpartum. It’s also amazing for grounding, digestion, sleep. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🌟🌟 I want to hear from you all, tell me your experience with Ayurveda. Xxxxooo

Eliza is a brilliantly gifted singer and songwriter from Australia. We got talking about preserving her creative process as a mother and artist, and the particular challenges and bounty that parenthood brings. Eliza also just produced a series for ABC called “We’ve Got This,” which is spotlighting, de-mystifying, and giving parents a much needed voice to discuss what it is like to parent with a disability. Thank you for opening our world more with your perspective, Eliza! | link in bio for full interview |
Week 28 Pregnancy VLOG by Teresa Palmer| link in our bio | #pregnancy #babies #mamas
I’m away from my babies and it’s the first time I haven’t slept next to esmé.. the anxiety leading up to this day was bananas. I was so worried I was gonna traumatize her. She did pretty good last night - she woke up a lot in the early hours - but our nanny was able to get her back to sleep - I am away for three days. Anyone else ever have to do this? Did the mama guilt make you go nuts? Did you feel like your plane would go down? Hahah (a window inside my head) ~ the good news is my babies are ok and happy ~ two days to go. @swrightolsen

“How We Heal Our Children’s Broken Hearts” by Jessica Gammell-Bennett - “Over a period of eight weeks, our son went from a sweet boy who liked to give hugs and kisses to one who yelled at us in anguish, hit us, and spit in our faces. We would later learn that the children in his preschool continually spit in his face, hit him as he tried to crawl away, and on one occasion, pushed his face into the water of a kiddie pool. “ read more | link in our bio| #bullying #bullyingawareness #healing #children #toddlers #mamas #dads #yourzenmama
