Good day my sistren. My prayers are with you! :) The babies are fantastic....growing so quickly. If I blink I might miss it! I'm sure all of you can imagine how busy...beyond busy... things can get being a work at home mom! That being said, I felt I needed to share some challenges I have been having. Specific to this post are the physical changes I have been going through and how we are handling them. I know I am not alone when I say, my body will never be the same! Most of my post-natal changes have been good ones. This is not a post to complain about how my boys have changed the landscape but rather to face and embrace the differences. While the new 'swervs and curves' are highly appreciated by Mr. Husband; the new eeks, and squeaks are beyond his scope of experience. He does his best to understand and relate though, and I couldn't ask for more. ;)
    Like many new school sisters I know, I did not take the proper time to rest after our birth. I had no doctors orders, no meds to take home... We have been raised to believe that we must be super women. Cook, clean, birth babies and stay sweet and attractive while doing it all. Like most, I was in the fairy tale land of "Wonder Mother" after our unassisted homebirth of BB #2. I thought I had it made! Pushed him out and got all cleaned up in time to prepare lunch and paint with the 2 year old. And this was only th beginning! I followed up with busy days and nights, staying occupied..."getting it done". I thought that by keeping the law of 40 days with my husband, I was giving my body a rest. I rarely laid down, and I wore a rapidly growing baby boy everywhere I went. I was literally in the grocery store w/ a baby strapped to my chest 2 weeks post partum. After this kind of behavior with TWO BB's in as many years, you can imagine the strain my womb is feeling! 
...Now that I got that out :)....
    I am now taking the time to heal... Learn from my mistakes ladies, NEVER, EVER take for granted the time our bodies need to heal. My elders all told me to sit for a while, keep something on my feet, rest myself....but I had too much to "do". Looking back it all could've waited. I am not in serious turmoil in my body, simple aches that can be nursed. But it could be worse. It took a little persuading to get the Head to agree with a short "break" but he's happy I'm taking some time for me too. So, I've decided on a 6-week cleanse. I have also decided that, for now, this site will be my "work" so that I can sit and be productive. Here is a relaxing, restorative, womb health tea recipe I have been using for the past week with some beautiful results.
