Honestly, a live in nanny for 1 year wearing black and white ( just so she is reminded she is paid help).
Are these people just going to pass the baby over and get back to work ASAP. I think so. No sleepless nights for these two. I wonder if the nurse is a “wet” nurse as well. Personally, I don’t see Kim using a breast pump (to unattractive – to much of a pain in the butt)
Ok – they have money and everyone would love help like this. But I will be keeping my eye on these two. Any money they are straight back at work at the wink of an eye, whilst someone else raises their child. I believe, Kim’s number one focus will be losing the baby weight as fast as possible.
it’s INSANITY isn’t it?
Hi Guys! For those who may know, I am writing a book about my struggle with Bipolar 1 disorder. I had hoped to raise $8500 to get the book completely over the line, i.e editors, proofreaders, book Cover etc, however with no such luck. I have decided to re-pledge for $600 to be raised in 40 days. You can pledge as little as $5. All the information is below. Please post/share on facebook if you wish. Lots a love Liza xx

Everyone from my Dr’s, family and friends say it is a must. A must for all mums / dads not just people with mental health illness.
Today, I dropped the kids to school, went to the gym, and drove into Paddington my favourite suburb in Brisbane. I had lunch, coffee, bought a vintage coat and read some of my book, A Game Of Thrones.
Whilst driving, I started to cry! Shit, the seasons have changed ( winter! = trigger ) I have changed my hair colour ( trigger! ) I have also noticed that I am having a red wine every night, something I haven’t done in 7 months….. I hope to god I am not going to have another episode. This time is the usual suspect. The past 2 years have proven that.
I realised, the tears were happy tears. Tears of joy! I realised I had a husband who loves me so much, adores me, puts me and his family before everything, anything, and anyone. I have 3 adorable beautiful healthy children who love me. My eldest girl understands my health issues. I always so sorry if I have snapped or been grumpy – she says to me, that’s ok mummy, you can’t help it.
I have everything, EVERYTHING you need in life. The other stuff just get’s in the way. Confuses you. You start to think that the other stuff is more important, the house, the car, the job, the bills, the school, that email……..
It’s NOT! it’s love…. the love you have… that is all that matters. Loving people. People loving you. The other stuff is meaningless.
If I didn’t have my family – I would have NOTHING.
I had the most wonderful day. I was a beacon of love. It’s contagious.
GIVE LOVE – SHARE YOUR LOVE! Give your love away…. it cost’s nothing.. but feels AWESOME!
INSANITY – leave him Nigella….
Here is a link to a story I read that really hit home for me. You can click on the link or read it below.
All around us there are competent, smiling people with good hearts and good jobs. Stand-up men and women who do their best to provide for their family, friends, children, and co-workers. People who laugh easily at others’ jokes, generously offer advice and compassion, and put others’ needs before their own.
But if we look a little more closely, we might see a flicker of self-doubt in the eyes of these fine folks. If we listen with a little extra care, we may sense a subtle lack of self-worth lurking beneath their surface. If we watch a little more attentively, we may see some effort behind their smiles and a waver in their confidence.
These are the people who are living their lives under the influence of powerful, invisible childhood emotional neglect (CEN).
The definition of childhood emotional neglect is simply this: A parent’s failure to respond enough to a child’s emotional needs. When a child grows up in a household where emotions are not validated, accepted, or responded to enough, he learns how to put his own emotions aside.
A child who grows up this way becomes an adult who doesn’t value, trust, or even know his own feelings. This child may grow into a fully functional, outwardly strong adult. But he will feel a deep sense inside of himself that something is missing; that something isn’t right.
He will feel that a most deeply personal, biological part of himself (his emotions) is invalid, or unacceptable, or missing. He will question his decisions. He will be confused by his own behavior and the behavior of others. He will struggle to feel connected to the people he loves the most, to fit in, to belong.
Yet, this emotionally neglected child, in adulthood, will be perplexed as to what is wrong with her, or why. Childhood emotional neglect is so subtle and unmemorable that she may have no awareness that anything was missing in her childhood.
So she will struggle in silence, put on a good face, and hide from herself and others that deep, painful feeling that something is just not right.
As a psychologist who has helped scores of people become aware of and conquer their CEN, I have tracked it through multiple generations within families. I see CEN as one of the most surreptitious, destructive influences upon the health and happiness of our society. Its invisibility not only increases its power, it also allows it to self-propagate stealthily from one generation to the next, to the next.
Emotionally neglected children grow up with a blind spot about emotions, their own as well as those of others. Through no fault of their own, when they become parents themselves, they’re not aware enough of the emotions of their own children, and they unwittingly raise their children to have the same blind spot. And so on and so on, through generation after generation.
So the world is full of people who always come through for others, who put their own needs aside. They paste those beaming smiles on their faces, put one foot in front of the other and soldier on, giving no hint of how they really feel.
My goal is to make people aware of this subtle but powerful force from their past. I want to make the term emotional neglect a household term. I want to help parents know how important it is to respond enough to their children’s emotional needs, and how to do so. I want to stop this insidious force from sapping people’s happiness and connection to others throughout their lives, and to stop the transfer of emotional neglect from one generation to another.
If you identify with the face of CEN, it is vital that you take it seriously. It is by dealing with our own legacy of childhood emotional neglect that we can not only heal ourselves, but also ensure that we do not pass it down to our own children.
