Our art project from yesterday! I knew better than to try and get a handprint from Charlotte, I tried that with Teagan when she was a newborn and her little hands just kept balling up and the whole thing ended in me being frustrated and having to accept all I was getting was a footprint haha. But I like these, with teagan I did the salt dough and one actually broke, but breaking a rock is highly unlikely.
"I’m gonna start running everyday again!"
"I’m gonna look so damn good again!"
Never took into consideration I’ve only been doing walks for the last 3 years with zero running. I’ve always had slight knee trouble but never like this. I’m pretty disappointed and I really hope that if I let them heal up I can run again without this happening. I just need to take more precautions, like new running shoes since the ones I had are 4 or 5 years old and ran in them everyday for at least a year. It looks like I’m also gonna have to rock a knee brace everytime I run. Its worth it though. I really do love to run.
This is a nice thought.(via brixtoncharles)
If you’re worried about being a good mom, you probably have nothing to worry about. My husband keeps telling me that bad mothers don’t worry about whether or not they’ll be good moms.
Thank you! I have no idea where it’s all come from but I’m so happy!
I feel like I’ve been on this insane high since I gave birth. I was so prepared for a horrible post partum depression case since I had a difficult time after Teagan, but nothing has hit me and we’re two weeks out. Maybe I’m jumping the gun but I really don’t think so. It just seems like everything is going so well.
My recovery has been so simple, I felt back to 100% the day after I gave birth and my weight has been dropping on its own. And even with my weight dropping I decided to exercise and take even better care of myself. Today I went and ran a mile for the first time in almost three years. It was fantastic and i always feel so great when I run.
My husband and I have greatly improved our relationship. We had been having a really hard time for a while and it got really nasty. We even half planned splitting up but made the deal that we would wait the few months until after I had Charlotte and see if we had gotten to a good place or not. And here we are, in a great place and easily communicating and controlling both our tempers.
The girls are doing amazing together. Teagan isn’t bothered in the slightest by Charlotte and it seems Charlotte is a very low maintenance child so she isn’t bothered when Teagan needs love. It’s worked out really well. I was so nervous but they proved me wrong altogether.
I don’t think I’ve ever loved anything as much as I love my children, and that may not make sense to some of you. You may not be in that place in your life. You may not ever want to be. I hope one day though, you each get to love something this much. Even if it’s just your own reflection in the mirror.
