Im surprised at how neutral all the girls went this year. They were much brighter last year! Aidan would not let me take one shot of her yesterday. Totally her call, but she did take tons of selfies.

Nicola, response is above. I missed the original comment. I hope you didn't feel slighted and I apologize if you did. I don't always reply to each comment, but I see every one and honestly did NOT see this one come into my inbox from Typepad.

GREAT question, actually. People who are saying you're a great mom are basing it on an incomplete picture. I used to think my therapist was crazy, that she was just after me, that I wasn't so bad, I mean, come on! The truth is that I have not been a great mom. That's what this post was about. That is not a jab at commenters who said, "Oh, you're terrific!" It's NOT about ego stroking or self validation. Self esteem absolutely does not come from having people tell you, "Good job! You're awesome! Way to go! How brave of you!" It comes from competency as an adult. Being responsible for everything in your life: your pain, your joys, your responses, your caring, your development. I totally missed this comment and am glad to see it now. Believe me, comments like this get me thinking and I thank you for that. Also, this post was carefully crafted around the truth. Not contrived. Everything I write is crafted. This just happened to be the truth. For what it's worth, I hope that helps you understand where I'm trying to come from and I apologize for missing this comment. I don't always respond to every comment, though I read them all. Believe me, this one somehow slipped through the Typepad cracks. For what it's worth.

The last few weeks of Project Life are super stripped down. It's amazing how much faster it goes when I just focus on getting the photos in and just a tiny bit of writing. Sometimes, that's all I'm in the... Continue reading

Maca Root powder? I know nothing of this. I do have some EOs but not really sure how that would help. Off to google...

Yeah, why IS this taboo? Honestly. I was worried about posting it. I wondered if it was TMI, you know? But its freaking life. Thats all. Just life.

I too remember wanting it so badly in the 7th grade. Different periods of life affect how we react. No pun intended.
