My husband and I have slept in separate bedrooms since my 4 year old was born. He’s a shift worker, I’m a snorer and I’m also an incredibly light sleeper now. We have sex just as much as we did in the same bed and I think our relationship is so much better without the resentment attached to different sleeping times/patterns.
@rush if I could upvote this comment 100 times I would!!
I love the medik8 range. It’s the first time I’ve spent real money on skincare, but I’m 36 and all I wear during the day now is sunscreen and an eyebrow pencil thanks to the effects of their products. I use the advanced night restore and retinol at night and their day cream with vitamin C. So simple and so effective
I’m not sure if not expecting your kids to help out is ‘radical’ I do agree that we need to lower our expectations of a pristine household, but you are doing your children zero favours by not expecting them to help out. One day they will be adults and will live with other adults who may not be as happy to take on the brunt of the housework with zero complaint
I honestly believe any person with a public IG account should be banned from posting pics and videos of their kids. You have no idea what kind of psychos are out there and plus your kids can’t consent to you documenting their every waking moment for the public to see. So sick of seeing people using their kids to build instafame
@ella27 they’re not mentioning it casually. They’re saying it’s heavy stuff so start light and build up tolerance and use a sunscreen to further avoid irritation.
So basically...walk more, but also sit down and read more, and sleep more
I actually think it’s more important for us to raise kids who know what their sex is and teach them that they can do/be anything regardless of that. It’s the same as the whole ‘colourblind’ arguement around race. Men and women exist, it’s a biological fact. Instead of making my son hide the fact he’s a boy, I let him wear what he wants, play with whoever he wants and if he loves another man down the track then that’s perfectly fine too. And I will raise him to understand that girls can play with and be whatever they want to as well. Stamping out the reality of someone’s sex is like throwing out the baby with the bath water
Can we talk about all the patriarchal ‘my sister’ ‘my daughter’ bullshit. These women are not your property and they have names...please use them
I was thinking about using a C & K kindy for my boy’s kindergarten year but the emphasis this story has placed on forcing sharing has made me reconsider. I think anyone who has current early childhood knowledge knows that this concept of making our children share ie forcing them to give up what they have because another child wants it is outdated and unfair. Children are going to learn to share naturally without us projecting our needs for adult like ‘manners and social skills’ onto them.
