Let’s Talk About That Baby

Let’s Talk About That Baby

Let’s Talk About That Baby. A real article that confronts the topic of PND for what it is, honestly, so please give it a read.

My thanks to the blog author, Robin Riedstra, who although I’ve only found recently, I’ve been super interested in her articles because of their honesty and interesting subjects, so keep up the awesome work, Robin!

Yes,  that woman needs help and if there was more pr in hospitals, at the Dr surgery or that we moved to a place in the future women just knew that there were places that would take care of them, or their baby, when things got too much, with no judgement, just real, honest long-term support and continual care.

Oh yes, I know it’s only a dream, but hey, I’m allowed to, aren’t I?

If you’re feeling sad, down or worried that you may harm or neglect your little one, please get in touch with beyondblue.org.au immediately as they will have staff on hand to support you through this time. Your other option is to get in touch with your GP, or PANDA.

So, you can imagine my shock upon realising that I’ve been dressing my daughter the same as me without even realising it!

Breakfast at Chez Jones

As we were partaking in breakfast this morning I looked at our pajamas and realised that, apart from hers having an awesome deer pattern on them, they were pretty much the same colours and style!

Yup, the style I like is so narrow that I’m pretty much finding mini versions of what I’d like to wear and what seems comfortable and easy to wash and putting the stuff on her!

I’m certainly not a fashionista (yes, I can hear the laughter from my friends as I type) and tend to mix up what’s current with my retro style, making it into something I can live with, and so it seems I am now doing this to Babyness!

The Boy has always known exactly what he likes and what he doesn’t, I’ve made a point of teaching him to think for himself and not follow trends (clothing or otherwise), and we agree on his choices most of the time… Then again, he’s a boy who really doesn’t care much for clothing.

I’ve got no presumptions on how Babyness will feel about clothing and her ‘style’ as she grows. I have days when I feel I simply must look awesome and this is reflected in the amount of time I spend on hair, makeup and clothing, but sadly, the majority of days involve a very simple, but workable, look that is mine. Jeans, black t-shirt, Converse or cute flats, plus if I’m feeling motivated I’ll ‘put on my face’ and do my hair in something other than a ponytail or pigtails (yep… 41 may be getting a little old to rock that look?!).

As a mother should I be setting a ‘better’ example of style and grooming for my daughter? Some would think so… Others may agree with my thinking and feel that there’s heaps more to me that takes precedence over how I look. It’s not that I don’t care how I look, or spend my days wearing pjs or sweats, it’s just that as long as I am clean, fresh and simply attired (albeit always trying to rock a retro edge!) I just don’t care enough about that sort of thing to spend too much time on it.

What about you? Are you always gorgeously dressed (Elkee from KarmicVintage I’m thinking jealously of you!)? How do you/would you dress your kids? Comfort or style? Is it even important to you? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter!

Here’s to a lovely, stylishly dressed day!
