I felt so ready to push and the pain immediately doubled. The midwife decided to check and I knew I was ready to deliver this baby very soon. She looked at me and said “darling, you’re only 5cm”! She then went back to her paperwork, I was crushed!!!!!
It doesn’t matter if you are a first time Mum or like me, a Mum having her fifth baby, knowing what you need or what to buy can be very overwhelming. There are so many opinions and options out there and it can be very tricky to navigate. I thought I would try and help a little bit by letting you know some of my favourites, products I have used with Jordan and products that have really made these past few months so much easier.
Well, you asked and now it is here! My list of must haves for the hospital. It doesn't matter if this is your first pregnancy or your fifth, deciding what to pack and what to leave at home is always confusing.
A child's birthday can be a mothers worst nightmare. The pressure we put on ourselves to create the perfect day for our children can sometimes make us forget the reason behind why we are doing it all in the first place. To take a little bit of the pressure off these events I have put together some of my top tips to making these special days even more special and a little less stressful.
Sexualization (or sexualisation) is to make something sexual in character or quality, or to become aware of sexuality, especially in relation to men and women. Sexualization is linked to sexual objectification.
How do our hearts begin to mend? I know with every part of me that I will see my Dad again but how do we go on here missing someone that you saw everyday? That loved you even as you felt unloveable, that loved you so much that he would do anything for you even when you hated them for it. Someone that held your childhood in their hands. Someone that chose you when your biological Father looked the other way. My Dad chose me. And now he is gone.
There is nothing more important that taking time. Just take it! Its yours! Laugh, Dine, drink, kiss. Get back that flare. Be who your are together. And my advice to my Perth friends? Do it at the Sage!
lets take action and instead of carrying on this way remember that we have the power to raise a generation that will be incredible humans, a generation that will love others instead of living from a place of hate. A generation with enough courage to rise against those who wish only to suppress them. A generation that will end poverty! A generation that will end human trafficking! A generation that will save millions of children around the world from sex slavery! We read statistics, we shed tears and then we move on, we don't change (forgive me when I say this) and then we complain about future generations. what if we united with them? What if we taught them the value of life and freedom? What if we help them change the very world we live in!
My 7 year old daughter came home from school the other day and asked me if she was fat, FAT!!! I stood in shock as I looked at my TINY beautiful girl. Why would you ask me that? I said softly. "The other girls at school were all talking about it" see replied. I sat beside her building her self confidence while inside I was remembering the age I started to use the phrase "I'm fat".
