Today I am writing my 100th post for mamacino. It feels like a milestone, an accomplishment of sorts. I think it’s worthy of a celebration…maybe even a party and so…I would formally like to invite you to The Mamacino 100 Posts Positivity Party!

Yesterday was a day of ups and downs. I went to see a Chiropractor in the hope of curing myself of a few ills. Rebecca took one look at my body and well, I won’t go into all the details except to say words like tension, stress, anxiety, no breath, holding on, closed were being used…a lot. Rebecca got to work trying to open me up, unravel some tightly wound knots. She was wonderful. The treatment was fantastic. I left feeling on top of the world. But something happened in the afternoon. I started feeling emotional. I was sad, lonely and very close to tears. It all culminated in a melt down after Leonardo accidentally (on purpose) dropped his bowl of pasta on my just cleaned concrete floors. Needless to say, the bowl smashed in a million pieces which reached almost every room of the house. Let’s just say I didn’t cope with that particularly well.
I spoke to my Grandmother in the evening and was hoping for a sympathetic ear. I didn’t get one. She told me to “pull myself together don’t you know how lucky you are stop trying to be so perfect what about all the people who have twins”. You might think this sounds harsh but it was in fact, exactly what I needed to hear. If she had have been nice to me I would have broken down. I don’t cope well with kindness, either.
And so this morning I have been fortunate enough to have a few child free hours and I have been doing what any other sad, lonely, feeling-unsupported mum does…stalking pinterest! I have been pimping positivity and feeling all the better for it. I highly recommend it…but don’t search ‘adult company’…no, that was a big mistake.
Here are a few of my favourites…I’m sharing them with you to say thank you! A huge thank you for being here with me, for letting me be a part of your positivity posse because that’s what all of you do. You listen, you offer support and words of wisdom, you make me laugh and sometimes cry. I love hanging out here at mamacino and it makes me so happy that you do to.
New rules to remind myself of every day….
And if that wasn’t enough….press here….and….
Love and light,
