Birthday week (which means chaos and almost no sleep and pregnancy and extreme heat and not even being able to drink my way through it to relax 😆) finally got on top of me tonight. I absolutely CRACKED it at this one at bedtime. Not quite the biggest meltdown I’ve had as a parent, but it was up there. She’s probably just exhausted too, but I couldn’t think about that sympathy at the time. I’m just sick of the bedtime shenanigans, the stubbornness, the games for an hour every night. We used to literally read two books, shut the door and walk away. Now every night is a mental battle and tonight (and most nights since being morning/night sick) I ran out of steam. Once I cooled off and she fell asleep (in our bed... because games/stubborn etc) I crawled next to her and told her how much I love her. I do this every night but this time it was more important. I hope she somehow subconsciously takes on the sweet things I say to her every night in her sleep after our battles. I’m really a very very nice person when they’re asleep 😂 God she’s sweet. But a little like the song at times... “Hey she’s sweet but a psycho, a little bit psycho” 🙊 Jokes. Kind of. I love her so much it hurts... I’m also petrified of birthing another mini-me because I’m not sure there’s enough space or patience for any more of me. And one day I hope to be the adult in the relationship who doesn’t lose my shit when I get grumpy and tired 🤦🏼♀️ Pretty sure only the kid without full brain development is meant to handle stress that way 😬 #motherhoodunfiltered#honestparenting

Have you noticed swimsuit bottoms are receding & showing one’s butt on Australian beaches has become mainstream? Does it work in real life? In theory, cheeky bottoms might be flattering, in a leg-elongating kind of way, but in scanning the beach this morning, it only takes the slightest disturbance to go from cheeky to wedgie🤣. I was one of the few sporting a ‘fuller brief’ & at my age, I’m comfortable with my decision. However, witnessing all shapes & sizes today proudly showcasing their butts, made me feel happy! Body anxiety lost out to trend and all the women who embraced their bods & cared more about having fun, were the most eye catching & beautiful in my eyes! ❤️
Are you a fan of this cheeky trend? 🍑☺️
