Don’t look at your clock! You’re lying awake, wishing you were asleep, and every time you look at the clock it just reminds you how much closer you’re getting to your morning alarm. Don’t let clock-watching leave you stressed and anxious, you’ll fall asleep faster if you turn your clock around so you can’t look at it from your bed, or better yet -- move it into another room entirely! #sleepbetterwithhylands

Hi! My name is Nao and I’m so happy to be partnering with @Mamalode and @HylandsHealth to share a snippet of our life with you today. My husband Shaun and I met while attending school here in Toronto, Canada, and we’ve since been blessed with two girls, Maya (6) and Emalee (3). I always knew that I wanted to be a mom, but getting here wasn’t the easiest of journeys. Each of my pregnancies with the girls was difficult, and I had a miscarriage between the girls, something that I still think about to this day. During our pregnancy with Emalee, there was one very brief conversation with the doctor in which he casually mentioned that my bloodwork came back with “a slightly higher risk for Down Syndrome.” He offered the option of further testing but we declined, never expecting a less than 1% chance would lead to us having a child with DS. The shock, the fear, the anxiety that I felt following Emalee’s birth and subsequent diagnosis is something that I’ll never forget. We were extremely fortunate to have delivered our daughter in a hospital where the staff were all very compassionate and positive about our surprise diagnosis. Despite that, it took me a long time to accept our new reality, and overcome the grief for “the child we thought we would have.” Today, I look back on those early days with fondness, because it is a reminder of how far we have come. Our daughter has opened our eyes and hearts to a new perspective, and we have found a wonderful community of people that we would have never had the pleasure of knowing, had it not been for Emalee. My hope here is that by getting to know a little bit about us, that you can also find out that there is so much to Down Syndrome than just the diagnosis and the descriptions that you might find in the literature. Thank you @Mamalode and @HylandsHealth for the opportunity to share our life, and we hope you enjoy following along! - @rightnao #MamalodeMondayTakeover

Hi friends! I’m Kristyn! I’m a (very caffeinated) momma, a suburban farmer, a chicken lady, a lover of joy and poems and slow cozy mornings, a family and couples photographer, and a total homebody. I’ve got a sassafrass of a little boy named Miles who just turned four (and has my entire heart), and I’m married to an amazingly patient, kind midwestern gent named Brian (we just celebrated 12 years together!) who teaches middle school. We live on the shoreline in Southwestern Connecticut on a little quarter-acre property that we’ve turned into an urban farm of a sort called Little Bee Farm. We have 6 beehives, 8 chickens, 2 dogs, and a big organic garden with veggies and herbs and flowers of all kinds - a lot of work, but so much fun. Between caring for our farm, our family, and bringing our best selves to the work we love, we both have really full schedules, so quality time with each other and the people we love is super important. We’ve created a space in our home that feels simple and cozy, and we work hard to be really intentional and super present whenever we’re together, no matter what we’re doing. Today I’ll be sharing some behind the scenes from our family’s adventures, and some tips for staying present in the fullness of your own life, right where you are. So glad to have you following along! - @kristynmillerphotography for @mamalode #MamalodeMondayTakeover Taylor Lenci Photography
