We Dug These Trenches With Love

Travis and I have a tendency of describing the stage of life we’re in just like this, “Oh, we’re in the TRENCHES.” I’m pretty sure the “trenches” part comes across a bit dramatic, but it’s true. We have 4 kids under 5.5 years of age. If that’s not the trenches (at least of parenthood), then I don’t know what is. We have one in kindergarten, two in diapers, three who need help brushing their teeth and wiping their bums, and four crazy-different-awesome-unique-scary-smart-challenging personalities.

We.are.in.the.trenches.

The Diagnosis That Leaves A Legacy

In the summer of 2008, one July morning, I woke up feeling very dizzy. It was a hot day so I thought it was the heat… But when I saw myself in the mirror, I noticed I couldn’t move my eyeballs. They were stuck looking forward. I called a friend of the family who is a neurologist and asked him to recommend a good ophthalmologist. When he asked me for my symptoms, he was alarmed and asked me to come to his office first. After my examination, he said he wanted an MRI of my head to discard the possibility of Multiple Sclerosis. I immediately went to get tested and the picture revealed white spots on my brain, my neurons were attacked by my own immune system: I have MS. 

Meet Oyuki Aguilar – who turned a devastating illness into a mission for the children yet to come into her life. Discover – The Sport Of Parenting.

Soon after the doctor confirmed the news and lab results (spinal fluid from her back) proved that she was in the early stages, Oyuki took cortisone to bring the inflammation of her optic nerves down and the swelling was gone within a couple of days. But what next? She decided to write a book, and currently lives through the moments as each day blinks by. Her mission: To leave a legacy of her life’s lessons to her children.

3 things you should tell yourself before getting into your swimsuit

It’s swimsuit season, usually a dreaded time for women everywhere, except for the ones whose bodies we ogle over, whose Instagram pictures we stare at until our eyes bleed, and those who make us feel like no matter how many hours we put into the gym or how many calories we count we will never amount to their bikini-goddess-role-modelness. What if this summer though, we learn how to embrace the body we’ve been graciously given, we try instead to become healthier rather than 6 pack toned, we enjoy our family and friends instead of living in the pit of gym-hell, and we tell ourselves a few things before getting into our swimsuit that might actually build us up instead of tear us down.

5 Books to Read this Spring

5 Books to Read This Spring

Reading regularly will help stimulate your mind, reduce stress, and improve your memory. Researchers have found that hobbies, like reading, may slow Alzheimer’s, and sleep experts recommend reading as part of your evening routine for better sleep.

Even with these benefits, many adults do not read regularly. In 2013, the Huffington Post shared the results of a survey of 1,000 American adults that demonstrated that over 28% of people did not read at all and 25% read only a single book a year. In just three years since the release of that survey it is easy to assume with the increase in technology and predominance of screen time that those numbers have most likely decreased.

Finding Myself Again After Becoming A Mother

“What do you do?”

That one little question is so incredibly difficult for me to answer. It leaves me utterly speechless. When I am asked that harmless, and often times, thoughtless, question in a social situation, it’s like the words are just pulled out of my mouth and rolled into one big cluster of nonsense and then forced back down into my throat, left to sit there like a scared, frail kitten in the gutter during a thunderstorm.
