This kind of thing happens so much in motherhood. Always the last to eat. Always first to get sunburned. Last to bathe. First to clean up the gross thing.
If you had asked me a few years ago if I would recommend having children close in age, my answer would have been a resounding, “No!”
Motherhood can be unexpected, joyful, exhausting and sometimes, tedious. Reconnect to your body and unique essence in the company of other women in a gorgeous and welcoming setting.

+ Tips for preserving intimacy with partners
+ A facilitated online community for continued support and connection following the retreat
IMPORTANT: Wear comfortable clothing suitable for movement. Please bring a yoga mat (and any supportive props you may like to use, if you have them). Mats are NOT available to borrow.

Her response? “Smurfs.” The next week I asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween: “A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.” Soon after, we received an invitation for a Super Mario Bros. birthday party.
