Anxiety Update—-

As most of you know i suffer from severe anxiety to the point it has stopped me from doing things. As i am sitting here today looking back on my day i feel like i have made a significant amount of progress in just one day!

First i went to the doctors office – So some of you are like yeah so? but for me that is a huge milestone! One of a huge triggers in my anxiety is attending appointments! I have a very nice doctor and once i am there i am find, but getting into that office is very hard. So today i overcame that and went to the doctors to talk about my anxiety! I have been given a few tools i’m hoping will help me out a bit.

Second i got some financial burdens figured out – I am currently unemployed but slowly building up a working from home business. I was able to pay off some debts and even get into the bank to get them all sorted out. Yet again going to the bank may be easy for you but for me it is a large fear that i was able to overcome.

I feel like opening up about my anxiety is making things so much easier. People just think i don’t want to work and i want to stay home and live on welfare for the rest of my life, but are you kidding me!!!! There is nothing more that i would rather do then go to work and pay off my debts, move out of my mothers house and into a place i can call my own, give my daughter everything and anything she can possibly imagine.

So like i said yes those small tasks may seem stupid, but i got help! That is the most important thing i want everyone to take out of this post. I seeked help and finally felt like someone was on my side. I put a plan into place and i’m going to continue to work towards my goals both long term and short!

I will beat this anxiety and i will overcome everything i need to in order to give my daughter and i the best life i possibly can!

Thanks for listening, See you soon, Jamie ❤

Conversations With My 2 Year Old – Fair and Thanksgiving Weekend!!!!

Well this weekend has been a SUPER busy weekend! It is thanksgiving here in Canada So happy thanksgiving everyone! We also had a huge fair on this weekend in town and decided to go to that 2 of the days. And on top of that i decided to attempt to make my very first turkey dinner!

So brooks first fair was a huge success! She had so much fun and i’m so happy she got to go. She was a champ on all of the rides and just kept wanting to go on more and more! I am so fortunate to be able to do this for her and i look forward to carrying on more traditions just like i did as a child! When i was younger we used to go to the fair every thanksgiving weekend and then we’d have a turkey dinner at my grandmas on the monday!

This thanksgiving i decided to cook a turkey myself! Since my grandmother passed away we have yet to ever have a thanksgiving dinner. So lets just say the turkey was definetely and experience! The worst part was preparing the turkey. Lets just say it turned my stomach… And i honestly debated continuing but i knew i had to do this or we weren’t going to have a thanksgiving dinner! So i ended up making turkey, potatos, stuffing, corn, cranberries and a fresh pumpkin pie! I wish i had taken pictures of it because i was so proud that i did this for my family.

Heres a few pictures from the fair! This weekend was full of “baby daddy drama” which i won’t be getting into in this post, but spending it with the ones you love is truly the best feeling ever!

See You Soon, Jamie ❤


  
  
  

Toddler Milestones!!

Hello everyone And welcome back to my blog! This weeks post is going to be a top up of last weeks conversations with my 2 year old! 

I had mentioned in my post that my daughter was giving me a VERY hard time going to bed at night and even for naps! Well im happy to say that the problem is solved and heres how! 

WE SWITCHED TO A BIG GIRL BED! 

Thats right my almost 3 year old was still sleeping in her crib! She had never climbed out of it so i didnt see the problem with keeping her in it? I had been thinking about starting the transition around her third birthday(february). I was worried i was going to have a very hard time keeping her in the bed. But i found a deal on a brand new single bed that i could not pass up! I purchased her mattress, box spring and bed frame for only 100$ brand new! (Thank you back to school sales!)

I will leave some pictures of her bed below, but i bet you are all wondering how she did in her new bed! And to answer that she did AMAZING!! I was so worried and expected to be in for a looong ride! When we first started talking about the bed i got her soo excited for it! She kept saying how excited she was for her big girl bed! And once it was all put together she was even more excited!! I will admit i shed a few tears taking down her crib but she was ready! She told me “wow its perfect mommy i love it, thank you soo much! I had to make it very clear that she didnt leave her bed until morning when mommy came to wake ger up! 

And it worked. She has slept 2 full nights and 2 full naps through the night without leaving her bed, waking up or even falling out of the bed! Its been such an awesome experience and now we cuddle every night in her “big girl bed” 

I hope this is some positive insite on transitioning to a single bed and maybe even helped someone! See you all soon, Jamie<3
