He has agreed to ttc No. 4 in January!

Gosh, I feel shy posting about this now. I've been going on and on and on about this for so long, it's almost hard to believe he has actually agreed. This last week has been soooooo hard for me, and I've been swinging between trying not to care if he says no, and feeling like I'd have to leave every forum and stop talking to every friend in order to cope if he said no. The pain of seeing other people going down the path I so want to go down when I can't would be just too hard...

But now all that worry is behind me...

Dave came home last night and said he would give me an answer before we went to bed, but that he didn't want me to pester him all evening. As the hours passed I just go more and more tightly wound. I felt quite sick by about 11pm! I had convinced myself he was going to say no and he was waiting till just before we went to sleep to tell me so I wouldn't go off on him. I played all these scenarios in my head about how maturely I would deal with it, and how I would just get on with my life and let it go and focus on other stuff...

Then we went to bed, and in the dark he held my hand and told me that based on my arguments for having number and for how I'd cope etc. he would have decided to say no. However, he's decided to take a leap of faith with me. He's decided to do this because he loves me and wants me to have all my dreams come true and in order to that he feels the only thing he can do is support me in this. He still feels anxious about it all and he still feels just as reluctant as before.

LOL, I was umping for joy internally, but being just as sober and serious as him on the outside in respect for his feelings of trepidation, and then he says, "So, don't I get a kiss or anything?" LOL...

I haven't been able to really believe untill the last hour or so, so now I'm thinking I'm going to have to organise something really nice for him tonight...

So, there you go. LoA really, truly does work!!!

Oh I think that is so special that despite still feeling anxious he is willing to take a 'leap of faith' with you! I got all teary when I read that part...
Will have to get out my Harry Potter spell again LOL because you know I am predicting fraternal twin girls! LOL

So rapt for you, and Dave is such a great man. You know I know how much it is an act of love to get that commitment, feel the love! *gush gush*

And that's just the prelude, what exciting days!
Oh thats lovely ! :-) Yay for you both !

I *knew* it!

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also have this feeling like, as important as this baby will be to you, this soul is has something special for Dave as well. For all his anxiousness and reserves about having another, he's being chosen as much as you are not only for what he can teach her but also what she can teach him. *serious moment over*

(PMSL at Casso! That needs a drink warning!)

Thanks everyone :D!

Amanda, yes I totally agree, this is the baby HE decided on, because this one I was ready to accept a no on (finally)... I think this is going to be one strong father/daughter bond!

Well, now I'm a bit overwhelmed with everything I have to organise in the next couple of weeks to get us started on this journey together. I'd put everything on the back burner till he gave me an answer so now I have to order supps for him and figure out a way to feed us all so at least he and I don't get bored (of course the boys can't go on the diet it's not healthy enough)...

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Do you have low self-esteem?

I don't.

I used to think I did, but having met several people who really do have low self-esteem, I've now come to realise I actually have low confidence (and note I don't say low self-confidence, but more on that later), and that is a different breed of animal all together.

I was having a chat with a friend the other day about people who constantly put themselves down. If you are a participant in social media you might be aware of this kind of person. Everyone is smarter than them, prettier than them, more motivated, better organised, or has greater talent than them. It goes further, some of these people are not at all opposed to running themselves down to others with comments like, 'I'm so fat' (and not in a proud, fat acceptance way, but in a negative, self-loathing kind of way), or 'I'm stupid' or 'I'm ugly'.

Some people are just fishing for compliments, of course, but the ones who persist; the ones who simply cannot take a complimen…
