13 months ago, I wrote a letter to all girls about beauty.
Today, this post is republished at World Moms Blog. It’s my final post there, so it would be ever so lovely if you could head over and read it, especially if I’ve only just met you this year and you missed it on here. This one is close to my heart.
Yes, I will no longer be writing for World Moms Blog – I was spreading myself too thin as it is, and something had to give. However, it’s not au revoir, I am staying on as the Social Media Editor. It’s a sisterhood that I’ve grown with since I started blogging, so leaving has never been on the cards. Just doing less. Which believe me, is rather difficult for me.
I’m feeling mellow this week. I was in the doldrums and feeling rather sorry for myself, only for the Universe to taco kick me with appendicitis, to make me realize I actually have it really good. So this week, I’m chilled out (not from the painkillers as I’m on regular, over-the-counter ones, thank you breastfeeding!), just going with the flow and trying to enjoy my last few days of ‘bedrest’. Soon, I’ll be back on my feet again, my boys will come home after a very extended ‘vacation’ at their grandparents, and I’ll be cheerfully digging boogers out of the toddler’s nose, and cleaning yogurt off the baby. And this makes me happy.
By the way, my toddler is turning three on December 29. Can I still call him a toddler then? No? *cue tears* I am considering a little birthday do for him at school, even though we have NEVER talked about birthdays with him, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t realize he has one. I know, mean parents. We’re just not the celebrating types. However, I feel the need to celebrate him this year, and how far he has come since he started school. Aye or nay to a little birthday party? (this will mean I’ll need to make some food, bring some party favors and so on, and it has to be next week!)
Oh, last question and a serious one, so do weigh in. I‘ve been posting twice a week here for a few weeks now (except for last week with the giveaway) – is that a good thing for you as a reader? Do you prefer more posts? Or less? Or just right? Tell me in the comments!
