A little bit of hope! My mom has been more alert, talking and opening her eyes, the last couple of days. She had some issues that are now clearing up and I think she’s feeling a tiny bit better. I know the outcome is still the same, but it makes my heart a little lighter.
We also met with a team of private caregivers yesterday. They will begin providing nighttime care starting today. Positive thoughts that all goes well and this works out for everyone. It would be a huge relief! 💜 [credit: @lifeloveandalzheimers]

“Your mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend.” -Pinterest
You feel mom guilt? I do too. You've cried recently? So did I. You've been feeling down and out lately? We all have times like these.
I've come together with some other mamas to show you we are all in this together. We are going to open up about some of OUR untold stories of motherhood and how we've made it through or are making it through.
Some stories we share might be common or similar to soemthing you're going through, or not! We are all unique and we all have our own individual stories so we are going to open up and share! I hope to inspire you in some way - whether that is for you to open up and share yours, or take something from my message and feel better about your self... because you AND your story are worthy.
P.S. If there’s any specific topics you’d love us to talk about comment below and let me know!
Nimm dein Kind an die Hand und lass dich von ihm führen, betrachte die Steine die es aufhebt, lausche und
hör aufmerksam zu, was es dir erzählt und es wird
dich in eine Welt entführen, die du schon längst vergessen hast. #momlife#loveyou#mygirl#motherdaughter#nowordsneeded ❤️

When you accidentally twin, embrace it!!
Everyone loved our matching outfits & thought we had planned it! (Even had on the exact same shoes!) Maybe, we should do this for every Market?! 😜
(We missed having Anna with us, Saturday ~ 3’s just a better number! 💚)
Getting lost made us feel ____?!
Art made us feel alive
Bringing lunch to the homeless girl on the street made us work together, made us hope, made us pause.
The cold made us stand closer to each other
The sun through the cracks of the buildings made us look up
The men in the financial district made us smile
The woman in beautiful coats made us want beautiful coats
The garbage in the streets made us ashamed
Spending a whole morning in a restaurant watching the snow fall out the window made us happy.
The theatre made us dream and laugh and cry and imagine and want and wonder and clap and cheer.
Saying goodbye made us long to return #nyc #dream #flyaway #motherdaughter #writersofinstagram
Cows only give milk when they are pregnant, like humans.
To make the cow pregnant, she gets raped (A hand gets shoved inside her anus to inject her with bull semen)
She‘s pregnant for 9 months (again, like humans) and then she gives birth.
Her baby gets stolen immediatly or after 1-2 days. She cries for days after her baby to be given back to her. The calf gets locked away in a cage, if it‘s a boy, he gets murdered for veal, or raised for beef. If it‘s a girl, she gets raped like her mother.
This happens year after year, until the cow is so destroyed, that she collapses.
Think about this every time you wanna consume milk products. •
Traveling with a infant was bit stressful but exciting at the same time. I never thought I would be traveling to the other side of the world with a 5 month old baby.
But she did so wonderful she slept the whole plane ride but momma couldn’t sleep at all! We got to our destination I was worry about her DWT and bed time. But she did so well she only was jet lag for 2 nights she woke up around 3 am thinking it was 7 am. So the best thing to do was just follow her flow, she slept on the go carrier, car seat or stroller, little did I know her time was back to normal. Of course I was stressed also sleep deprived for 2 days and 3 nights and the stressed for our wedding.
At the end of our Paris vacation it was a great experience with some ups and downs but overall it was amazing no words to describe it. I’m super happy she got to travel with family and friends. #momlife#travelingwithbaby
The thing about traveling is that it opens your mind. It shakes these rigid belief systems that you hold about the world and life.
It also reminds you that we are all just human. At the core of is all- we are the same.

A love note to mothers 💛
The amount of love I have for my mom is immeasurable. When I was a kid I would go to my parents room every morning to lay on top of her, and as an adult I still watch TV at home with my lead in her lap like an overgrown dog that sits on its owner thinking it is still puppy sized.
This holiday season I came to fully understand the scope of her love and I have never respected her more. When I have gone to her in my darkest moments to ask for help, she has shown me unconditional love and grace. When I have felt failure, she has shown me perseverance. When I have felt weakness, she has shown me fortitude. She is intrepid, and I hope to be like that, too.
Yesterday I had the joy of a visit from her in the city. I understand now more than ever how fragile life is and I cherish these moments more than anything. For those of you who have lost your mother or are not on good terms with them, my heart is with you. I am so sorry and I send you hugs.
My own mom is not on Instagram, but I know a lot of you reading this are mothers — so many cheers to you today! Xo 🙏🏼✨
Motherhood: learning as I go every single day. 💕🙏🏼❤️ Between diapers, less sleep, feedings, pumping, singing bunnies and swaddles my brain is officially on overdrive 😂👶🏼💕 There are so many topics & experiences I’m excited to share about but for the first time in a long time I’m nervous & intimidated by the criticism that can sometimes come along with parenting. I just want to be honest because I am navigating new territory and emotionally I’m not sure what I can handle. I felt this way when I first started sharing about my pregnancy and I know these feelings will fade. I also know I will find my voice and want to share because I hope anything I can share can help someone else. It’s not that I am not confident in myself as a mom but 9 days postpartum I am for sure the most emotionally fragile I’ve ever been. I am taking each day as it comes and just soaking up each moment with my little Izzy! 💕💕 Being a mom is so incredibly rewarding and I’m just so lucky to have her in arms!! Xoxo Melis & Izzy
