Joanna Gaines might be a businesswoman but she’s also a mom to five children, ranging in age from two to 15. And, while she may have her hands in a dozen different pots balancing her work as an author, cook, and designer, she never lets that take away from her prized role as mom. It’s because of this that fans from near and far praise the 42-year-old mother for everything she does—whether it’s a sticker-swapping night with her daughters or harvesting session in the garden with her sons.
Where Joanna typically shares the cute behind-the-scenes snaps from adventures and fun family nights, on Sunday, October 11, the Fixer Upper star posted a peek into how her sleep routine has changed as a result of her kids.
“Slept pretty good last night…” she captioned a photo of herself, sandwiched between two sleeping children with a stuffed animal strewn across her head. She ended her caption with a woozy-eyed emoji, which moms across the ‘gram couldn’t relate to more.
“I never said our kids slept with us, rather, they slept on us,” one mother commented.
“Now that is a picture of Motherhood! Love, sweetness, sacrifice all captured in one shot!” someone else added.
“I cannot believe that I miss those days!!” another mama chimed in.
“SO SWEET!!!! Those are the days! Soak them up, mama! They grow so fast as you know!!” wrote someone else.
And the comments just kept coming. As wonderful as snuggling is—and as much as Joanna will miss her little ones at this age—here’s to hoping the busy mama gets the rest she deserves.
