Laura has a fever and seems to be feeling really off. I just want to cry seeing her so ill. Having my MIL come over for a bit because I need to walk the dog and in case we will need to see a doctor I’m going to be much quicker by car than public transport.

Develop a healthy relationship with food. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re full, don’t eat. Eat vegetables to be good to your body, but eat ice cream to be good to your soul.

Take pictures of yourself frequently. Chronicle your life. Selfies are completely underrated. Even if the pictures are unflattering, keep them anyway. There will always be mountains and cities and buildings, but you will never look the same way as you did in that one moment in time.

Your worth does not depend on how desirable someone finds you. Spend less time in front of the mirror and more time with people who make you feel beautiful.

Close doors. Don’t hold onto things that no longer brings you happiness and do not help you grow as a person. It is okay to walk away from toxic relationships. You are not weak for letting go.

Forgive yourself. We all have something in our pasts that we are ashamed of, but they only weigh us down if we allow them to. Make amends with the old you and work every day to become the person that you’ve always wanted to be.

I wanted a new phone. Which is ridiculous because my Blackberry is not even a year old. Phones are expensive so I got myself a new Skip Hop diaper bag and a baby monitor.
So excited for the order to arrive.

Update: Laura never had a cold, it was just that bloody seventh tooth coming through that had her all unwell. We actually saw her ENT physician today for a regular check up and she appears to never have been sick. Which makes sense because her what I believed was a cold lasted less than 48 hours.

Uhm. I went into too much detail here.


We expand and we grow, Its’ a part of being human, it’s a part of adapting to changes. Stretch marks and scars are a part of you, a part of the past that brought you to the stage you’re at right now. They are unique to you, and deserve to be embraced.
