  • Love love love this video! Thanks for reminding me to take care of myself too. Would you be willing to make a makeup tutorial? Just an everyday makeup ����

  • I just got my body analyzer from them in the mail the other day. Shipping was mad slow and I didn’t get the kitchen scale they promised but looking foward to using it to track my body goals.

  • please continue to motivate me, last year I finally made a decision to change my major to nursing, it took me awhile because I didnt feel that motivation on the field that i was going through, i was so sad and cried every day telling myself I’m so stupid I’ll never graduate. I love kids I just never thought on becoming a NICU. I never felt the drive as I do now I finished my pre requisite and about to take my admission so I’m nervous. the thing is I felt so worthless because my dad keeps telling me “you’ve been in school for 8 years, I can’t keep supporting you like this… when are you going to graduate!? I see kids around you already working at your age, you could’ve made money already…” he has a point but I have my own obstacles that he doesnt understand. if you can’t already tell my dad’s very strict and goes by the book. sorry for this long rant hehe.

  • What surprised me most (as a mom in general) was the vastly different experiences I could have. I am a mother of 2 boys, one is 9, one is 4. One was exclusively breastfed, the other had a mix of breast milk and formula. One I co-slept with, one was a crib sleeper. One I stayed at home with, one was sent to daycare. And yet, despite their different upbringings and personalities, they are both happy and healthy little boys! Also, for one birth I used an epidural, while the other was a natural birth. No judgment here, ever. ❤️

  • I’m so glad you’re taking care of yourself when you feel down. You’re such a great and strong role model for Sydney. ❤️ I want to paint my nails too, but it’s so tough! Great variety of self care ideas!��

  • I always look forward to your videos! You and Sydney are too awesome! Happy Mother’s Day! You definitely give me motivation for my 16 month old son. Thank you!!!

  • That salad in the opener made me hungry. I find it helps me to make sure I hit all the marks in self-care over the course of a week. Daily is not possible. Over a month can be too long a wait. Does she understand that you know it wasn’t an accident and that she cannot do it again and that it does waste food? She was funny trying to make excuses for herself. It is so hard not to laugh sometimes when you are trying to use the situation as a teaching moment. Oh hair. Oh woe is me. I have had thin, fine, poker straight hair all my life. As a kid my barrettes and bobby pins and ponytail bands would slide out of my hair. But the care I have to give it always makes me feel like Sisyphus because I do not come out of whatever I do looking like Julia Roberts with lush, wavy, dark hair. It remains thin, fine, limp, blonde, poker straight unless I put it in a bun or braid or chignon. It’s pathetic. I had strawberry blonde hair as a kid that has darkened into a honey blonde. But my mother had flame red hair in her youth that darkened into auburn and it was thick and curly and coarse and she could do anything with it. We always want what we didn’t get in terms of our looks, I fear. Food is one of my love languages probably because it is so important what we put into the bodies of our loved ones, especially developing children. HERE’S AN IDEA: when Sydney goes to school for first grade which is more like 8am-2pm daily, maybe you could do more recipes as a nutritionist/dietician (I forget which you trained for) and that could expand your channel because you’d have time to work on preparing foods on camera and not have interruptions. You could keep your weekends for family, friends, church, special events and maybe do a bit of Sydney here and there (depending on how she feels about being filmed at that age when she will be coming up on the age of reason @7-8yrs) and the other days of the week do recipes. And then your cooking would be done for dinner before Sydney even got home, so you could focus on her afternoon snack, catching up, homework and not have to do anything but heat supper. Don’t know what you’ll do about proteins if chicken, eggs, cheese et al are all you eat. But by then who knows if we will all be eating the artificial proteins and plant proteins due to the mess in our abattoirs and meat packing plants and food chain. Her being at school all day will give you time to experiment. What brand was that sugar-free French vanilla syrup? Is it your birthday? HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You are a good example to others. We cannot offer ourselves to others if we are not whole within ourselves. We cannot expect others to complete us if we have not found ways to be the most we can possibly be with what God gave us. We cannot expect others to make us happy since happiness is something that is always fleeting and shared, perhaps amidst ongoing contentment. We must offer sharing our good life fully developed with spouses and children and cannot expect them to provide what we cannot manage. We are all a bit sad for what was lost. We are going through a grieving in understanding what will never be as it was again. You are showing people how to live into that with its moments of sadness and give full effort to the creativity to make life the very best it can be with what we’ve been dealt. We are still way better off than most people throughout history have been and we are not sacrificing anything compared to what people in WWII did. Your remaining honest and positive about it all is a help to others to live with these conflicting tensions in life. Perhaps by the time Sydney is in first grade we will live in a much better world that will be more secure for her future because of the lessons we have learned during the pandemic. Not all of the way things were had been good. You are right: self-care is like maintaining a healthy metabolism all day everyday. I take it that it did not occur to Sydney’s father to do anything for your birthday or Mothers’ Day even if on her behalf. He could have planned something with her to begin teaching her and left it outside.

  • Love this video. I’m currently an LPN, going on for my RN. Self care is so important working as a nurse full time. There’s so much burnout at my job and I’m definitely trying to avoid that from happening to me. I love watching your videos and I’m actually thinking about starting a channel to document my life through my RN education and career. I look forward to continuing to watch your channel!

  • Happy Mother’s Day! Just wanted to let you know that I feel so let down and sad when I have to do everything alone…all household jobs, looking after the baby with my husband being super busy at work and not having any time for us. At those times I think of you..the way you do so much being a single mom…and then I muster up all the energy and get back to work and try not to feel bad. You are really an inspiration. More power to you������������…and to all the moms out there❤️❤️
    Sidney is so so sooo cute. ��I so wish she and my daughter could play together…my little one just turned two��

  • I commented some time ago that I was applying for my nursing program and I actually got accepted! I’m super excited and have been binge watching your videos again. I am slightly nervous though because I was informed that I’m one of the youngest accepted (19 years old) and I was wondering if you believe my age will affect anything?

  • I’m literally in the verge of a nervous break down after my exam yesterday!! All I do is study everyday! And I’m not getting the grades that I should be and everything in my life is neglected �� love life/family/friends I forgot about my life and I’m not passing I don’t know what to do but after watching this video you helped 100%!

  • I’m a few days late but wanted to wish my favorite vlogger Happy Mother’s Day! �� I just think the world of you & enjoy all your vlogs. Sydney is blessed to have you as her Mom. You are doing an amazing job. Take care & sending hugs to both of you.��

  • mam meri baby 4 month ki hogyi h mai breast feeding hi deti hu but kuch dino se milk kam bn rh h pls Koch solution btaiye muje tablets nh leni h iske liye

  • I think a big thing, not as a nurse but as someone who has had stressful jobs is to have your thing. If your idea of a treat is to dine out, save during the week and for a couple of weeks and cook and then now and again go spend it on a nice ass dinner. Balance it so when you splurge it is a real “treat yo self” moment.

  • Absolutely love watching your videos you have inspired me not only with my nursing career but also to be a better person and I am all the way from South Africa

  • This is so good to watch! I’m currently trying to get pregnant but I’m also a career woman and apparently I’m crazy to do both! But I’m ready

  • When i hear “girllll”… in the break room. im just like damn it why did i choose this profession… look at all the smart, tough ladies in the field, i take it back. But all in all nursing is awesome. Just a team setting of helping people. Homies are missing out…

  • Happy Mother’s Day �� self-care to me means waking up before my baby every morning and do my time alone with God (prayers and devotional).

  • Happy belated Mother’s Day! You are such an amazing mama and I’m so glad you took time to also take care of yourself. You deserve it

  • This Mother’s Day was extremely hard for me also. I had a miscarriage last month. Even though I have four living children who I love more then anything Mother’s Day was so difficult. I cried a lot and felt so empty cause the baby I was supposed to be carrying was no longer with us. You are so strong and doing an amazing job raising your beautiful daughter.

  • Self care is maintaining a tidy house, eating well with some delicious treats thrown in, waking up before my toddler in the mornings, and getting to bed at a decent time.

  • Thank you for keeping up with your videos, Hayley. You really keep my life going even if I’m not as put together as you or as most moms.. but you’re a big help to me. You keep me feeling good and atleast try on the daily

  • A mixture of taking care of myself, exercising, and a clean and organized house makes me feel so happy!!! The messy house makes me the most anxious!!! Lol

  • I’m not even in the medical field but I love watching all your videos. The advice you give goes a long way & outside of just the life of nurses. I recommend you to my two best friends in nursing school all the time lol Love you��
