It was such a nice day out yesterday!! Kylie and I went to Starbucks after her doctor visit and enjoyed sitting at the window people watching. There were some Cadettes there selling Girl Scout cookies so of course we had to buy some. :)
I took Kylie to the doctor about her foot and he just said to ice it and give her Tylenol.
Kylie came home from preschool limping. Her teacher said her and Elisa were playing and something happened. I guess none of the teachers saw because she didn’t really have much to say other than ‘keep an eye on her foot’.
I almost cried when I was saying goodnight to Kylie. I did not think I was ever going to be THAT mom. I literally roll my eyes when I see posts about their children growing too fast. But Kylie is pretty much fully potty trained as of this past weekend and now she’s no longer in a crib and she didn’t even ask for her sheep blanket tonight which she always sleeps with. *sigh* I guess I am now THAT mom.
Kylie’s first night in her big girl bed :’)
Kylie fell out of her crib for the first time ever. It was so terrifying but she’s completely fine. When I ran in there she was face down, but kept complaining about her feet hurting (much better than her head, right?) so now we’re relaxing and watching Frozen.
Also, I thought I was going to be waiting another month or so to move her, but I think it’s going to be done within the next few days because I’m scared of it happening again.
Enjoying the fire Uncle Scott made on our snow day today :)
"To every child, no matter where you are from, your dreams are valid."
The first letter she’s able to draw! I didn’t help at all. :)
So much cleaning is getting done today! Kylie’s birthday is next month so I’m going through her toys and giving away things I never see her play with. Also, she will be moving out of her crib and into a real bed sometime in the next couple of months. We were trying to figure out how that was going to work because she will be outgrowing a toddler bed much too quickly. Well she already sleeps in the guest room so my parents figured she can sleep in the queen bed in there and when guests come she can sleep on the trundle bed in my room. My room also needs a lot of work and I should really get started on it, but I’m so unmotivated haha. At least some stuff is getting done.
She’s definitely not going to be designing roads as a career hahaha
Supermodel Karlie Kloss was photoshopped to look less thin for a Numero campaign. There are so many things wrong with this. Models are forced to be incredibly thin to fit a certain aesthetic, but when they do, they’re so emaciated that they have to be photoshopped to not look sick.
Robin Hardy, a former creative director at Vogue, has commented on the practice of photoshopping to cover up the aesthetic and health costs of extreme thinness:
“At the time, when we pored over the raw images, creating the appearance of smooth flesh over protruding ribs, softening the look of collarbones that stuck out like coat hangers, adding curves to flat bottoms and cleavage to pigeon chests, we felt we were doing the right thing…
But now, I wonder. Because for all our retouching, it was still clear to the reader that these women were very, very thin. But, hey, they still looked great!
They had 22-inch waists (those were never made bigger), but they also had breasts and great skin. They had teeny tiny ankles and thin thighs, but they still had luscious hair and full cheeks.
Thanks to retouching, our readers… never saw the horrible, hungry downside of skinny. That these underweight girls didn’t look glamorous in the flesh. Their skeletal bodies, dull, thinning hair, spots and dark circles under their eyes were magicked away by technology, leaving only the allure of coltish limbs and Bambi eyes.”
Ahh I never new this got so much attention! Yay! This kind of thing getting awareness makes me so much happier than that other picture…
I’ve never heard of this before, but this is SO INCREDIBLY telling. We all know of models being photoshopped to look thinner, but in reality some of these people are so thin to the point of unhealthiness that people in power, not wanting to show the public what has been done to these models, purposely reverse-photoshop them to look healthier, because God forbid we be forced to come to terms with the overwhelming pressure we put on women to be thin.
Just….wow. Can’t even handle this right now.
I think this whole poly thing is a means for you to feel more incontrol of your husband's cheating.. Cz it doesnt look like u are pursuing a rel with anyone
Sarah, I guess every time we flirt it’s a lie. I’m not pursuing a relationship with anyone because some anon thinks so. And obviously just because I’m not currently in two relationships that means this is all one-sided. -.-
