laracameron Whilst this little sickie sleeps I'm sitting on the couch listening to my husband Dave's very last show on 3RRR FM. He's been on air for 7 years, 300+ shows. Feeling lots of emotion. Sadness and guilt that we couldn't manage to juggle it all. Life changes, weekends as a family start to take priority, but still... 3d
  •   laracameron @soozs too true xxx 3d
  •   laracameron @yardagedesign Yep, onwards we go xxxx 3d
  •   tinniegirl It's hard letting go of things we love. I still long for more time to play with my paints but letting go was the right decision for my family. But I know exactly what you mean. 3d
  •   allsubtext That's a pretty great run - and one day those mad skills might go to helping Addy to podcast or YouTube or whatever the kids will be into in 2030! 3d
  •   laracameron @allsubtext that's a nice way to think of it :) 3d
  •   clementineshoes Sad to hear another RRR show is ending. Am amazed at people's dedication to run shows for so many years, I've often marveled that they're able to fit the time into their lives despite their inevitable life changes. I'm sure this change will bring new things to your lives and to the lives of other budding radio hosts. 3d
  •   ljloveisyourcompass Sorry to hear that it was his last show. It sounds like you guys gave it your all in terms of giving it a go and trying to juggling everything but I totally understand how something had to give. Ultimately your health and your precious family time are the most important things. You are an awesome mum and although it is sad, the best is yet to come! <3 7h

laracameron How is it possible that I have an almost 1 year old? The last year has simultaneously been the longest and shortest year of my life, and certainly the most challenging. Never before have I felt so clueless, so frustrated, so torn between my self and my motherhood...but also never so close to my family, so inspired and so productive. So much can be done when you have such little free time! Like this quick birthday invite based on Addy's best animal noise imitations hehe! 5d
  •   sunshinejamboree The days are long, but the years are short... enjoy celebrating 1! 4d
  •   threebuttons I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE IS ALMOST ONE!!! 4d
  •   clementineshoes Oh yes, parenthood offers new insights into so many things. Your perception of time, yourself, the world around you. Congratulations on 1 year! 4d
  •   dana_leviston Wait til your kid is almost 9!!! It is crazy, though, that Addy is nearly 1, that really did go sooo quick xx 4d
  •   kibbott Time certainly does fly Lara hope Addy has a great 1st Birthday 4d
  •   tessmccabe Such a milestone Lara! I think you'll have to be a @thenewnormalpodcast guest soon :) (cc @emmamakesthings) 4d
  •   laracameron @tessmccabe sounds fun! 4d
  •   ljloveisyourcompass @laracameron Seriously well done Lara. The first year is the hardest for everyone. You've done soooooo well and you are so inspiring running your amazing business and balancing motherhood. 4d

laracameron I know this makes me a totally cliche "hipster-mom" but I just had to make this teepee for Addy from our new fabric. Now to find myself a decent patch of grass like @caitlinklooger's. Teepee instructions from @mypoppetshop. 3w
