Baking…

January 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

Every friday is baking day at Bella’s school. A little uncertain as to what baking a 19 month old toddler could do, I finally found out. 

Im very proud… :)

The benefits to having a mom who is 6ft….

(apologies for the blur….)

Step one: Assume the position

Step 2:  Flip……

Step 3:  Ta Da…..

Ever so impressed with herself…

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Lets try this again…

January 27, 2011 in Uncategorized

I began this post a few days ago but due to internet issues i suspect, it never posted fully so lets try again:

“The Young Man came to the Old Man seeking counsel. 
I broke something, Old Man. 
How badly is it broken? 
It’s in a million little pieces. 
I’m afraid I can’t help you. 
Why? 
There’s nothing you can do. 
Why? 
It can’t be fixed. 
Why? 
It’s broken beyond repair. It’s in a million little pieces.” 
 James Frey (A Million Little Pieces)

 


This quotation above goes hand in hand with the first lesson of the new year for me, which is the lesson of acceptance. Sometimes you have to accept that people wont change. If they do change then sometimes they need to accept that sometimes its too late. Sometimes too much damage has been done for things to ever be the same. That being said I know some people will argue that sometimes a second chance is justified.  

But what about when the quote above is the only way i can think of to describe how i feel right now. I’m tired of fighting for air and i think there comes a time when you need to focus on yourself and what your needs are, because they so often fall by the wayside when other issues seem more important.  I feel like i have lost a large part of who i used to be. I get up in the mornings and sometimes i don’t recognise myself. I look at my reflection and i think, you used to be fun, and i don’t much like who i have become.  You need to identify the cause of the problem and remedy  the situation before it becomes too late. 

Not everyone will appreciate my motives for my decisions, but like i said, for once i am considering myself and my wellbeing in this equation. I will only be able to be the best person that i can be, the best mother that i can be if i am true to myself. And i’m afraid that this might mean a lesson in acceptance for alot of people.

Worries and Apologies….

January 25, 2011 in Uncategorized

First up, a BIG apology to everyone who has been commenting on my posts and not receiving a reply. We are struggling with our internet connection and it drops every 5 minutes. Which means i type a reply and i try post and it drops…. Very frustrating. Your comments and feedback is all greatly appreciated!

I went to pick Bella up from nursery school yesterday and i need some advice. Im starting to wonder if she is settling down and is happy where she is. I cant decide if she’s getting a cold, is really tired or is really unhappy. 

Yesterday i got there and she was in tears. And this morning for the first time she was cried really hard to see me go which i know in itself is nothing unusual. Every day when i pick her up she looks so tired and a little miserable.  I know she needs time to settle down but the last couple of days have made me wonder. Is she happy and just really exhausted when i get there? Are their specific signs i could be looking for?

Bella’s first Nursery school fall…

January 20, 2011 in Uncategorized

My baby girl apparently thinks she is closely related to the flying fox…. Yesterday she took a dive off the jungle gym.  She wouldn’t sit still long enough for me to take a great pic, and by this morning she looked like rocky…. I keep hearing eye of the tiger every time i look at her :)

But as per her tomboy personality there were apparently very few tears and she went straight back up :)

Bella’s First Day at Nursery school

January 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

First off, Happy new year to everyone and BIG congratulations to everyone who had the wonderful news of the BFP this year. 

Bella started Nursery school on Monday and its going really well so far, her teacher is wonderful as is teh nursery school she is at, i think it’s safe to say we are both very happy.

Not so sure about this Nursery school thing….

Must have been a rough day yesterday, I couldn’t get her up the next morning…

Hope everyone has a fabulous day!
