Where did she go?

Her husband steals the computer to take to work during the day.
She is busy! She is looking forward to the summer holidays!
She is stuck as to what to blog about... But here are some things that are happening with her children....

The little one is walking now. Almost running. She is talking a little more too now which is nice (it slowed down after she got her glasses). She says "tank oo", "Daddy", "byeee", as well as all the others that she was saying previously. Quite cute really. She has also learnt the fine art of throwing a DOOZY tantrum. She is the best out of 3 I am sure!!

The middle one is about to turn 5. Yes that's right FIVE!!! My goodness. It's almost the end of an era at kindy too. Off to prep next year. She has decided she wants to grow her hair again too after her last haircut. Hopefully that is a lesson learnt!

The big one is growing up so much! I wish I could remember some of his chitter chatter moments for you. They are so grown up now! He is doing brilliantly at school, reading level 24 books! He has to travel to the gr 2 class room to get his readers now! And he has finally graduated to size 5 shorts. That must mean he is getting taller!

And that my friends is all I have to tell for now...

So, in other news....

I have made a decision about my body.
This video helped me decide...

I don't want to be continually worrying about my weight and feeling like a complete failure constantly because I don't have the will power to stick to a diet or whatever. I am trying to come to peace with who I am and what I look like.
I see my "skinny" friends and I see what it takes for them to maintain their body shapes. They are gym junkies, carefully watching every crumb that they put in their mouths. I see their skinny jeans getting loose and their collar bones sticking out. Is that the lifestyle I want? And what kind of message is that giving to their daughters? And what about their sons? What message is that sending to their sons about a woman's beauty?
Do I want to be healthy? Yes. Do I want to be hung up on beauty and paranoid about calories all the time? Hell NO! Do I want to be confident? Absoltuely! Do I want to be gorgeous? You know what, I ALREADY AM!! [My husband tells me so and I am choosing to believe him].
This is me!! And from now on I wont be beating myself up. I can still wear beautiful clothes. I don't need to fit a mould that everyone else thinks is normal and/or beautiful. Who gets to decide what beautiful is anyway?
I'm not one of them!! I'm just not! So why should I let them intimidate me?
A lifestyle of workouts and miniscule flavourless meals does not and never will appeal to me. I will always fail at that forever...
A lifestyle of fun, family, friends and food absolutely appeals to me! I am making a choice! Option 2!
I'm not saying that I want to indulge and get fatter. No, no! I am saying that I don't want to be "that" skinny girl. Instead of looking at myself and thinking "fat failure", I am going to look at my life and think, "how blessed am I"!!! And maybe in the whole process, I can teach my children what a positive self image is all about...
