"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Exciting day!

What an exciting day today has turned out to be! Gabby had some success with her toilet training quest (yay!), Jonah's photo appeared in our local newspaper and I received some fabric I ordered from America only last week and what could be more exciting than that!!
How cute is this Dr Seuss fabric which will become new Library bags for my boys. Who doesn't adore Horton the Elephant and Cat in the Hat? Can't wait to get my hands on this! Stay tuned for the finished product coming soon!

  1. did you only just start toilet training? I've been wondering when to start Bethy but thought maybe it was a bit optimistic to think about it yet, but Gabi is the same age so that's encouraging!!!!

  2. We just started in the holidays, Carolyn. Not trying hard really. I just say, 'Do you want to sit on the toilet?' She says 'yep' and we usually sit there for half an hour reading books with nothing much else happening! We got her the same baby stuff as you got Bethany and so baby sits on her potty too! Today was our first success, but I don't think she really 'gets it'. Good luck!
