Practically Speaking Mom: Intentional Mom, Strong Family
Mom's Health Journey & Managing Multiples with Guest Becca Hammond, Ep. 111
Show Notes

We mamas are on a constant quest for improving our health.  We talk about that journey in the first half of today's podcast. In fact, the tips that guest Becca Hammond shares are the changes she made to help her third pregnancy to be MUCH healthier than her previous ones.  She even says her delivery was a positive experience and she felt good, alert, and had energy.  In episode 111, she shares three simple things that made a big difference for her.
Then the second half of this episode, Becca and I talk about important tips for thriving with multiple kiddos.   Four key aspects to helping your kids to thrive daily:
1.  Fill their love buckets -  speak words of truth  & hope & vision over them, make eye contact, give physical touch, show a smile on your face, relating on their level in a way that matters to them.
2. Get them moving!
3. Give them mental challenges.
4. Give them quiet time - a time alone to decompress, think, imagine, and self-regulate.
We talk about this and lots more on this mother/daughter conversation between a mature mama of seven, who is also a grandma, with one of her grown daughters, a mother of three.
