Partner Issues

Hi there everyone,

I have an issue and I think I need some advice. As you are all aware, in January this year, my partner and I welcomed our first child. It was one of the happiest days of my life and I know of his as well. For as long as we have been together he had always said that he didn’t want kids and doesn’t want to get married. I don’t mind not getting married but having children was a big thing for me and I remember when I first found out I was pregnant that when I told him, I thought he would leave. But he didn’t and hasn’t done. But what I have noticed is that, since I have gone back to work, that when he looks after our daughter, there is a lot of “I can’t be bothered” and that in turn bothers me. She is his daughter and while I get that he works full time, he could at least show our daughter the respect of being interested in being a father. Is this too much to ask for really? I feel like it is. I also don’t like having to work myself around his schedule and not getting the same respect back in return. Today is an example. I had an enzyme facial done today and I thought I was only going to be an hour and so that what I said to him. i went to my appointment and it ended up being 2 hours. He wasn’t happy and he let me know in his messages. When I got home I apologised to him and I didn’t get any response at all. Am I just being paranoid or should I say something. Need some advice please.

Hope you all had a great day.

Breastfeeding….

Hi there everyone,

I would like to take this opportunity today to seek peoples opinions about breastfeeding in public. Personally, I do it because I chose to breastfeed my baby and sometimes they just need feeding when your out. I chose, on the days that I’m at home and not at work, to not make a bottle because I like the connection that my daughter and I have during this time.
I do admit that there are times that I thought I wasn’t going to be able to breastfeed.
When I first had my daughter I really didn’t know what I was doing and the way that was recommended on the posters at the hospital and also by the nurses/midwives didn’t work for me. Once I got home she was on a bit of formula and a bit of ‘boob’ but she ended up not enjoying that so we stopped the formula. And she has been breastfed since.
She is also onto solid food at the moment which I do take with me but if she needs her milk, I try and be discrete and feed her. Doesn’t matter if we are in a cafe or out somewhere with the family or even round my mums house, she still needs her ‘boob’ so that’s what she gets. I am proud of the fact that my daughter is breastfed and I know that it is a personal choice but I think mothers should be supportive of one another and not judging others on their choices in how they feed their baby.

Please, let me know your thoughts on the subject.

Been a while since I last posted….

Hi there everyone,

Hope you are all well today. Sorry it has been sometime since my last post. Things got away from me a little bit and I completely (honestly….) forgot about this blog until today. I did think about it today because I was looking at some stuff on google and I saw something about blogging and went “Oh, wait a minute! I have a blog and I should probably do something with it….” So since my little girl is having a nap watching cake wars or something of the sort on the Food Network (my fave station on the TV) I thought I would take the time and try and catch up here….

So here it goes….

After my last blog where I was going to try a product that I intended to turn into a stay at home job business, Juice Plus, I found that after a while, I just kept forgetting to take the product and when I did take it it made my daughter throw up (I don’t know if that’s related or she just had had too much to drink,) so I, in the end, decided to stop taking the product and in turn chose not to do it as a business.
At this current point, I have decided to start taking the product again and I must say, I don’t feel quite as sluggish as I did without taking the product but it has only been a week so we shall see what happens. (I’ll try and keep you guys posted…)

After deciding that that wasn’t for me, I decided to become an Avon rep. I don’t know why as I have never brought anything from them before and as of today, I have decided to quit that as well. I didn’t really think it all through and when I realized that I didn’t know anyone who brought Avon products and a few other factors, I decided to quit while I could.

Also, a month ago I started back at work. Part time which is good and I have the hours that I figured I could work and its been working out well so far which is good (Got my contract this week so I’m feeling a lot better knowing that I have that…..) but it does mean that I have my daughter in the care of family while I’m at work. I did specify that I could do 5 hour shifts 3 times a week because at the moment, I am still breastfeeding my baby so that does hinder things a bit but we are managing…..

What else is news? I don’t think that there is much else that I can say at this point. I have a couple of other issues so I might post them separately because I feel like I have written enough here.

Hope you are well and happy blogging.

Lil xoxo
