It's okay if your family doesn't look like those ridiculous hallmark movies.
it's okay if your family doesn't include kids.
it's okay if you never wanted them in the first place.
and most importantly (if you're here on my childfree after infertility page), it's okay if you tried for them and ended up without them.
your purpose may not be to "mother" in the traditional sense and that is okay #nonmom #childlessnotbychoice #childfree #furmom #familybuilding #alternativefamily #familylife #homelife #mylife #thegoodlife #itsokay #yourlifematters #mstiagendusa

Oggi ho fatto l’ultima doccia qui.
l’ho fatta con le lacrime che mi segnavano il viso.
l’ho fatta accarezzandomi i capelli, strofinandomi gli occhi e cercando di fermare il più possibile i pensieri.
l’ho fatta fregandomi delle frasi di mia madre che continua a ripetermi che andremo a stare meglio, che finalmente la casa sarà più grande. di quelle di mimi che mi dice che sapevamo bene che ci sarebbe mancata questa casa, ma di non esagerare.
io in questa casa ho visto nascere e crescere la mia famiglia.
in questo bagno mi sono rifugiata tutte le volte che i pensieri diventavamo troppo rumorosi.
su quella scaletta rossa mi sono seduta quando litigavo con michele, quando mi arrabbiavo e dovevo mantenere calmo il ritmo del respiro.
per quelle volte in cui tu, aprendo la porta, mi hai detto: “gaia, tutto bene? parliamo?”
per le volte in cui l’ho richiusa.
ma anche per tutte quelle volte in cui invece ti ho lasciato entrare e, lasciando tutto il resto fuori, abbiamo trovato la voglia e la forza di continuare la nostra vita insieme.
in questo bagno.
quello dove ho chiamato mio padre dalla finestra il giorno del mio matrimonio per salire a mettermi il velo, perché ero pronta: ero pronta per venire a sposarti.
quello dei quattro test di gravidanza negativi.
ma soprattutto di quello positivo, alle 4 di mattina quando gli uccellini iniziano a cinguettare e l’alba a fare luce.
a quella doccia che mi ha vista tutte le volte in cui, accarezzandomi la pancia, ti ho chiesto di trovare la forza di rimanere, di non abbandonarmi.
in quelle settimane infinite quando il rischio di perderti era ormai diventato una certezza.
a questo bagno che mi ha accompagnato nella prima parte del parto, con le contrazioni e con la mano stretta a quella di michele.
a questo bagno che ha visto il primo bagnetto di brando nella sua casa, ma anche il primo nella vasca insieme a tua sorella lavinia.
a questo bagno che oggi ha accolto le mie lacrime ma che si è illuminato di luce quando, uscendo dalla doccia con l’asciugamano avvolto intorno al corpo, voi con le vostre risate.
mancano 5 giorni, chiuderemo la porta di casa, è vero…
ma lo faremo tutti insieme. #latendainsalotto

C’è una cosa che ho ereditato per osmosi da mia madre.
ed è il rituale della sera prima della partenza.
un grande tran tran per recuperare le valigie in garage, raggruppare sul tappeto i vestiti di ogni bambino, guardarsi in giro per la casa alla ricerca della “cosa perduta”. segnare a matita su un foglietto le cose da non dimenticare, spuntarle man mano le si infila in valigia senza scordarsi delle “indispensabili”, quelle che verranno utilizzate ancora nella notte ma che la mattina, appena svegli, troveranno il loro posto nell’ultimo zaino da riempire.
poi c’è la borsa della “sopravvivenza”: acqua, succo, grana, schiacciatine.
quella che mamma teneva sempre al suo posto, davanti, in mezzo ai piedi.
a me invece toccava la borsa frigo sotto le gambe, così da godermi tutto il viaggio rannicchiata, con il caldo afoso della macchina di papà senza aria condizionata.
i viaggi più belli li ho fatti così.
con le gambe a pezzi e il rumore della macchina di sottofondo.
niente radio, non l’avevamo ancora.
però si parlava, ed era enormemente bello.
ma c’è un’altra cosa che è rimasta uguale negli anni, come una tradizione che è passata gelosamente da madre a figlia.
la sera prima della partenza, mia madre si ritagliava un paio d’ore per occuparsi di se stessa.
si faceva la ceretta, si metteva lo smalto, si piastrava i capelli e si cospargeva di quella crema che profumava di buono.
quel prendersi cura di sé mi è rimasto addosso e anche io, come lei, la sera prima di partire, tra le valigie ancora aperte e michele che fa avanti indietro dalla macchina per caricarla, mi coccolo un po’.
ieri sera mentre mettevo lo smalto ai piedi lavinia è entrata in bagno, mi ha guardata e mi ha detto: “mamma perché fai tutte queste cose prima di partire?”
le ho risposto: “per farmi bella per voi”.
mi ha sorriso.
poi mi ha chiesto: “mamma, metti anche a me lo smalto?”
alle 23:00, con una valigia ancora da chiudere, ma con le unghie pitturate di rosa.

Nel week end ho la fortuna di riuscire ad occuparmi personalmente dei compiti di lavinia.
ogni domenica mi rendo conto di quanto siano grandi la sua fatica ed il suo impegno.
perché pur facendo logopedia già da alcuni anni, una difficoltà rimarrà sempre un ostacolo da superare.
questa domenica però ho notato qualcosa di diverso nel suo atteggiamento. lei che raramente riporta a voce i compiti che deve fare, continuava a ripetermi che avrebbe dovuto leggere un testo in stampato minuscolo. diceva che non ci sarebbe riuscita, mentre i suoi compagni si.
dopo un pomeriggio trascorso a passeggiare nei boschi, con le risate avvolte in un velo di malinconia quando la testa tornava proprio sul compito difficile da svolgere, ci sediamo al tavolo con il libro verde aperto e quella pagina difficile da leggere.
lei è sconsolata, piange, ripete in continuazione che non ci riuscirà, che è troppo difficile, che lei “non è capace”.
non so come prenderla e mi chiedo quanto possa essere realmente d’aiuto la mia insistenza.
ad un certo punto mi viene un’idea. apro il pc. le mostro un video che avevo visto alcuni anni fa, un pianista dalla giacca nera con i capelli ordinati, suona una dolcissima melodia al piano. solo alla fine si nota che lui, in realtà, non ha le mani.
lavinia, guarda il video con gli occhi sbarrati.
il video termina e lei, con un po’ di imbarazzo, si volta verso di me.
“vedi popi, se è difficile non vuol dire che è impossibile”.
mi sorride, mi stringe la mano ed inizia a leggere, lettera dopo lettera, quel testo.
ad ogni correzione ripete ad alta voce, sbuffa ma prosegue.
non abbiamo in mano una diagnosi e in questi casi, quella diagnosi, non arriverà comunque prima della seconda elementare.
ma davanti a me ho mia figlia, che oggi è riuscita a leggere una lettera alla volta tutto il testo in stampato minuscolo. e’ la stessa bambina di sempre, la stessa che fa logopedia da quando aveva poco più di quattro anni. ma l’unica cosa che è cambiata, oggi, è che per la prima volta ero io la prima ad essere convinta che potesse davvero farcela.
e che l’impossibile non esiste, quando hai vicino qualcuno che crede veramente in te. #latendainsalotto

👩‍🍳👩‍🍳🧑‍🍳we've finally done it ⁠

#nofilter⁠


we love tostada/taco 🌮🥗salads at restaurants. they just never taste as good at home. ⁠

layers and layers and layers of flavor😛⁠

organic ingredients for us:⁠

this was a new try🙌⁠
🍽refried beans (from a can) spread across the bottom of the plate topped with shredded cheese🧀⁠

heat in microwave⁠
place broken tortilla chips on top⁠

👩‍🌾👩‍🌾🧑‍🌾mounds of lettuce from our garden🥬⁠

this was also a new try⁠
🙌salad dressing⁠
i found in the fridge a jar of salsa with about 3 tablespoons left. i added 5 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar salt and pepper shook it up and poured it over the lettuce⁠

guacamole. we like it chunky⁠
3 avocados 🥑 garlic🧄 2 teaspoons lime juice cilantro 🌱 half a tomato finely diced 🍅 salt and pepper🧂⁠

pico de gallo⁠
(chopped tomatoes, purple onion, splash of lime juice, cilantro, salt, pepper) 🍅🧅🌱🧂⁠

fancy tortilla strips on top⁠

🍅we planted cherry tomato plant late fall and are still enjoying them. the ones in the grocery store look so anemic😝⁠
⁠ please let me know what makes your salads yummalicious

Actually can't believe how amazing this little guy is!
from 2lbs 4oz to 15lbs 8oz! he's actually over a stone now... he's now 8 months old eating 3 meals a day along with 5 bottles.. sleeps mostly through the night, sits up on his own will roll around as soon as he gets on the floor and is almost crawling.. can't believe he'll be one in four months!

Kindness among us⁠

my working title⁠

this is the first paragraph of my book beginning the day⁠
i meet my mentor smcs⁠


this is a memoir of the four years of my life that illustrates the vital importance of women participating in and accepting mentoring, nurturing, and community. the story is of the anguishing 6 cycles of ivf it took to become the mama of my beloved charlotte and henry eventually with embryos i adopted from another smc and the 6 cycles of soul⁠
crushing chemotherapy it took to save cha cha's life and my family.⁠


it took two things to make this post happen. first i had to get out of my own way. i am a left brained science person and have social anxiety. second i have been so socially isolated with this project on my plate on top of being an smc and working full time. i am grateful to be gifted a community of women struggling in one way or another together here on ig. single moms. women thinking about having babies on their own. women who had babies on their own. women trying to get pregnant. this is a calling and i have no choice. ⁠




it has taken 3 years to edit 5 chapters with an amazing single mom editor who in reality has been teaching me how to write. it's taken so long, well because life happens. my ptsd sometimes gets in the way. as a member of the sandwich generation i made the choice to put the book down and take care of my dad for 18 months. a year without that responsibility i am about a month away from pitching to publishing houses. ⁠

„sind sie die, die die verantwortung für ihre eignen kinder übernommen haben?“
kam jemand überrascht auf uns zu, als wir uns bei einer feier nett unterhielten. (-> 🤔 ja wir haben die verantwortung für unseren kinder übernommen, noch dazu die bildung.)
interessanter weise endete das gespräch mit dem satz: „homeschooling scheint wirklich ein besseres konzept zu sein.“
.
die verantwortung für die bildung seiner kinder zu übernehmen ist definitiv eine lebensaufgabe und bedarf komplette eigeninitiative. .

Es ist zu leicht so in den bedürfnissen der kinder und des mannes zu leben, dass man sich als mama schnell vernachlässigen kann.
das vernachlässigen hat ja inne, dass wir mamas verantwortung übernehmen.
das ist gut und sollte auch geehrt werden.
nur vergessen wir dann auch schonmal, die verantwortung auch für uns selbst zu übernehmen.
bitte schau, dass dein glas heute voll ist, damit du davon geben kannst. .

Stressed 🦋 keep breathing
stressful the only word i can use to describe all this. 2019 rocked me. there was always this possibility, this underlying knowledge that having kids was going to be problematic; knowing it for real was a punch in the face. •
getting that diagnosis made me feel like i would never get to be the mom i've always wanted to be. but here i am, almost exactly one year after starting to talk about kids and talk about genetic testing. it's been 6 months since i reached out to the only three clinics in the world that offer mst and asked them if i am eligible to this procedure. 3 months since a clinic in england told me they can't help me. two months since a clinic in greece told me i didn't qualify for their trail. but then something crazy happened; i got angry and reiterated the fact i have a mitochondrial disease which correlated to their trial and they changed their tune immediately. two days later i was skyping with the institute of life, athens greece. two weeks after that i opened a go fund me and flipped my birth control to prepare my body for ivf. •
the last month has been hell. birth control has wreaked havoc on my body and hormones turning me into a crying, screaming, over indulgent mess. i've scrambled to get passports issued and changed. i've begged and pleaded through go fund me, and i've downsized and gone back to babysitting to increase our savings. brett does nothing but work 7 days a week.
taking a 16 day trip overseas was not in the budget, but dang it we're gonna make this work! •
but today, today i am breathing. our travel arrangements are booked. our accommodations are reserved. we have spent about what was expected and have enough wiggle room to do somethings we want as well. the next 46 days are dedicated to saving our money, keeping our heads down, and making this the best part 1 of kids slash belated honeymoon ever! 🦋🦋🦋

celebrate the heart connection between adopted children and the forever families who welcome them with kindness, care, and unconditional love in this powerful picture book from the author of honey baby sugar child.

carol olivia clementine lives with mama rose. mama rose is everything—tender and sweet. she is also as stern and demanding as any good parent should be. in the midst of their happy home, carol misses her mother and father. she longs to be with them. but until that time comes around, she learns to surrender to the love that is present. mama rose becomes her “home.” and carol olivia clementine concludes that she loves miss rose, “just like a mama.” this sweet read-aloud is, on the surface, all about the everyday home life a caregiver creates for a young child: she teachers clementine how to ride a bike, clean her room, tell time. a deeper look reveals the patience, intention, and care little ones receives in the arms of a mother whose blood is not her blood, but whose bond is so deep—and so unconditional—that it creates the most perfect condition for a child to feel safe, successful, and deeply loved.

I’m inviting you to join us on our journey to have more freedom as a family- to be debt free, to downsize our living space, to have the freedom to enjoy our time together more! in between i’ll be sharing little bits of our progress and how this is changing our lives! (i’ll be sharing more in my highlights and stories too!)⁣⁣
⁣⁣
have you ever heard of the saying, “use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.”? it’s something i haven’t heard for years, but i recently heard it again and it really clicked with me. not only is it going to help with saving money, but it’s also going to help with being more environmentally friendly and less wasteful! win, win! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
this little bear of wren’s is when i realized things needed to shift for me. she got this panda for a gift and not long after, our puppy got to it and tore a hole in its chest. i was so upset- this was her first stuffed animal! my first reaction was, “well, i’ll just buy a replacement when i’m able. what a bummer!” suddenly i realized just how absolutely crazy that was. i mean, that is crazy, isn’t it?! it’s embarrassing, reaily! instead, i brought my scraps of felt over to a friends house and sat and mended it with a little heart while we visited. ❤️ i’d say that panda is even cuter now, huh? and a heck of a lot less wasteful!⁣⁣
⁣⁣

⁣⁣
use up your cosmetic products before purchasing anything new! squeeze out every last drop of toothpaste! get into the habit of using it all up before purchasing more! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
repurpose little leftover bits of veggies in a stir-fry! food waste is a major problem (an average american family throws out $640 worth of food waste each year!) ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
buy less clothing! if you are buying so many clothing items that you have items you do not wear, buy less! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
make yourself a mending kit! when you notice a little hole starting in something, send it to your mending pile and work on it in the evening!⁣⁣

Wie funktioniert ein leben ohne schule, für die kinder?

manchmal entspannter und manchmal chaotisch. 😉

schule zu hause läuft so ab, wie man es gerne möchte und braucht. das sieht bei jeder homeschooling familie etwas anders aus, da jede andere bedürfnisse und sichtweisen hat.
ich sag immer, was andere mütter am nachmittag mit ihren kindern machen, die hausaufgaben machen, mache ich am vormittag. dadurch haben wir den nachmittag frei.
nun gut. wir definieren das lernen aber nicht nur auf den vormittag mit büchern und heften.
wir beziehen das lernen ins leben mit ein. sei es beim einkaufen, kochen oder beim aufräumen. .
entstehen konflikte lösen wir sie und lernen so wie man effektiv kommuniziert um gute ergebnisse zu erzielen. .
homeschooling ist das, was man selber daraus macht. .

Maternidade
no dia 02 de setembro de 2019, às exatas 22:03 da noite tu chegou ao mundo. dia intenso, de momentos inesperados.
esperei 40 semanas pra te ter em meus braços, fiz tudo como manda o figurino, pesquisei, fui atrás de médicos que nos respeitassem - algo difícil dura te a gestação-, fiz exames, te via toda semana apenas por uma telinha tão pequena que doía tanto de saudade!
me planejei pra ter um parto humanizado, queria muito que fosse assim, mas infelizmente nesse mundo em que vivemos é extremamente difícil uma mulher ter um filho de forma natural.
primeiro tive de ouvir de um médico que era "idiotice", pois todos os médicos eram "humanizados", e que não me ajudaria a parir assim, e muito menos fazer um plano de parto!
fomos a luta mais uma vez. encontrei muito médico bom, e muita gente sem disposição a me ajudar, apenas querendo marcar uma cesariana antecipada!
graças a deus encontrei o dr. daniel mandarino especialista em partos humanizados, foi um querido, me ajudou muito.
porém me vi em outra situação dinheiro!!! acreditem para ter minha filha da maneira mais respeitosa e natural eu teria que ter no mínimo 7 mil reais entre dispensas de sala na maternidade, doula, meu dr, entre outros; infelizmente na realidade em que vivo isso não seria possível, não tive nem tempo de me preparar! como já disse aqui algumas vezes eu nunca quis ser mãe, sempre me cuidei mas mesmo assim engravidei tomando anticoncepcional, descobri a gestação com 4 meses, na primeira ecografia que fiz já consegui ver que teria uma menina, minha menina linda!
infeliz o sus também não disponibiliza esse recurso, mesmo alguns hospitais que se dizer fazer partos humanizados, com douglas a disposição das pacientes, isso não acontece, fui atrás desses lugares e de pessoas que podessem me dar um feedback e foi decepcionante.
meus exames estavam ótimos, gravidez impecável, tudo indicava um parto normal, e eu já estava me preparando, preparando meu físico e psicológico; fiz plano de parto, fazia yoga, alongamentos, fui a maternidades, mentalizei, orei, conversei com minha filha em meu ventre, para que eu por esse ser perfeita!

ich muss ja sagen das ich richtige fotoalben eigentlich am schönsten finde, aber ich komm einfach nicht zum entwickeln und einkleben & außerdem wären dann auch keine videos und musik dabei 😊

Heute früh musste ich an den gestrigen post von der lieben rita von @bindung_leben denken. ich war gerade dabei einen 10liter kanister mit wasser zu füllen, als mich ein mann ansprach. er fragte mich, was ich denn da tue? ich erklärte ihm, dass ich wasser hole und damit den frischwassertank von unserem wohnwagen auffüllen werde. da schaute er mich verwirrt an und sagt zu mir: „bei uns holen die männer das wasser und die frauen machen frühstück.“ ich lächelte ihn an, füllte den kanister weiter auf und antwortete: „mir macht es aber spaß und man kann sich die arbeit doch teilen.“ da lachte er und ging weiter. ich fand das gespräch irgendwie lustig, aber es zeigt doch auch, wie starr manche menschen in ihren alten strukturen und denkweisen festhängen. die klassischen rollenverteilungen gibt es bei uns in der familie nicht. wir kümmern uns gemeinsam um unsere kinder, sowie um das essen, den haushalt, wäsche, finanzen, etc.. na gut, wenn ich ganz ehrlich bin, gibt es eine sache die nur max macht und zwar unsere toilette im wohnwagen entleeren, aber auch nur, weil es für mich einfach zu schwer ist. wir sind ein team, eine gemeinschaft, eine familie, warum sollten wir uns in irgendwelche alten und schon längst überholten rollen quetschen? ein papa hat genauso das recht dazu mit seinen kindern zu kuscheln, sie zu tragen oder die windeln zu wechseln. er ist genauso dafür verantwortlich, dass essen auf den tisch kommt oder das der haushalt gemacht wird. das ist nicht nur die aufgabe einer mutter. genauso ist es nicht nur die aufgabe eines vaters geld zu verdienen, es liegt auch in der verantwortung der mutter. ganz egal wie wir die rollen innerhalb unserer familie aufteilen - es muss sich für uns stimmig und gut anfühlen. egal was andere darüber denken oder sagen.

🥳happy new year past⁠

👩‍👧‍👦for many reasons last year was the first i'd been out for the holiday since they were born. first of all being outnumbered by tired children no fun. second, d***k drivers. third probably expense.🤷‍♀️⁠


🎊new years eve at the los angeles zoo. who knew?!?⁠
i guess they don't advertise because they don't have to. they sell out way ahead of time.⁠

it was a total blast! they were such good little dates. ⁠
we lyfted so mama could enjoy some bubbly🍾 ⁠
kiddos had sparkling cider which is a real treat🥂⁠
we ate steak🥩 asparagus and 🎀🍝pasta. it was an outside event and we were free to wander the zoo looking at all the gorgeous lights. there were party hats 🥳and horns. a dj 🎤played fun music and lead us in games. it was all families with all aged kids and so not a scene💄👠 we danced and danced and danced. the kids are clearly winding down as we road the 🎠carousel one last time before heading home.⁠

📷 check out all the fun🤩⁠

so worth the money and we will go again🙌⁠

check out your local zoo or children's museums for festivities!⁠


do you love my ugly christmas sweater?⁠

Ein grund, warum wir das freilernen so mögen ist, weil wir dann alle „ersten“ von unseren kindern miterleben dürfen. .
- erstes köpfchen heben
- ersten krabbelversuch
- erster wackelzahn
- erstes allein essen
- erstes lesen/rechnen/schreiben
- erste erfolge im lernen
- erste mutige versuche freunde zu machen
- erstes fußballturnier - erste ballettaufführung
- erste croissant 🥐 bestellung beim bäcker in frankreich 🇫🇷 -...
.
was sind deine ‚ersten‘ an die du dich gern erinnerst?

Família
nasci e cresci em uma família, de certo modo "tradicional", porém sem a presença de um pai.
apenas pelo simples fato de ter uma família já me faz privilegiada, mas a falta de uma figura paterna refletiu de maneira negativa na minha vida.
minha mãe foi uma guerreira, exemplo de mulher, criou eu e minha irmã de maneira impecável, deu o seu melhor, fez o possível e o impossível, mas infelizmente a um pai fez falta, e ainda faz!
quando entrei na adolescência, e comecei a entender as responsabilidades de uma família, da maternidade, de criar um caráter em um ser puro, jurei a mim mesma que jamais teria um filho, pois além das responsabilidades tinha medo que meu filho(a) não tivesse um pai, assim como eu.
tomava anticoncepcional desde os 12 anos mais ou menos, não só pelo fato contraceptivo, mas também por ter um ciclo desregulado demais.
depois de anos tomando todo cuidado possível, estava grávida! descobri com 4 meses de gestação, tomando remédio, e ainda no ciclo normal.
eu e o hivyn (@afega0 ) somos parceiros a 4 anos, temos um relacionamento de altos e baixos assim como qualquer outro relacionamento, mas a cima de tudo somos amigos!
nossas histórias familiares são muito parecidas, então ele também tinha os mesmos medos que eu tinha! quando descobrimos a gestação ele foi incrível, me deu todo apoio que eu precisava, pois ele sabia que pra mim não seria nada fácil, pois nunca desejei ser mãe ou ter uma família "tradicional".
hoje a ágape está com 4 meses, apesar das dificuldades eu não me vejo sem ela, sem a nossa família torta; eu tenho dado tudo de mim, assim como minha mãe me ensinou, o hivyn tem sido incrível, um pai maravilhoso, um homem que realmente me ajuda, que pensa muito na filha dele, e faz possível junto a mim, a termos uma vida normal!
não sei se vamos ficar juntos, ou qual vai ser o futuro dessa família, apenas agradeço por tudo que passamos, o que aprendemos, o que evoluímos, e por estarmos sempre em busca do melhor pra ela! não tenho mais medo da minha filha não ter um pai, pois sei que o pai dela á ama muito, e nada nesse mundo vai mudar isso!
gratidão a vida, as oportunidades que ganhei, ao ser humano melhor que tornei!
