  •   mildlycrafty They have baby tees! Matt only wears threadless shirts. I'm gonna have to get some for the kids :) 3d

laracameron Had an a-ha moment yesterday when Dave brought home these leaves from his morning walk with bubs, asking why they smelled familiar. I'd always associated Geraniums with the window box round leaf variety which confusingly don't look/smell anything like the Aesop stuff. But these leaves smell amazing! 3w
  •   floatingworld I love those ones! If you can snip off a little cutting they're very easy to grow. 3w
  •   laracameron @auntychezza really? Awesome! 3w
  •   laracameron @floatingworld ooh really? How much do I need to cut? And then what? Sounds like a fun idea. 3w
  •   bethemily @laracameron I use clippings all the time to grow new ones. You should smell the geranium leaves that are the rose type. Amazing! Learning new things is cool. X 3w
  •   winter_12 There's a barley sugar scented one & a furry leaved peppermint one too! 2w
  •   melaniejoy_c Citrus geranium!? They are good for repelling mozzies too in the summer x 2w
  •   isisstpierre Agreed. Rose geranium = lovely! 2w
  •   laracameron @isisstpierre @bethemily ooh, this could be the rose one I'm not sure- which one is the Aesop smell? And @melaniejoy_c this one wasn't citrus but I did find a citrus one out the front of Pope Joan! That's good to know, mozzies love to eat me :) 2w

laracameron RUOK? With all the cute baby / house / food / lifestyle pics floating around Instagram you'd be surprised how often this is really the answer! Certainly has been for us much of the last 4.5 months! RUOK? If not, that's ok too. xx 3w
  •   laracameron @the_minor_key I'm sorry to hear you're struggling in the same boat. I think the isolation is the hardest part, even just a day at home with a baby is hard enough. Bring back the village! 3w
  •   laracameron @soozs thanks sooz xxx 3w
  •   soozs Isolation is an absolute killer. I picked up some fast friends through mothers group and we clung to each other - right down to doing supermarket shopping together, meeting at the park and so on. Despite being stupid with sleep deprivation i tried to get out as much as possible with people who understood. And I know it's no consolation but it does end. It's an endurance race you have to keep running despite feeling it's impossible and endless and then one day you realise it's getting easier. Knowing that made kid 2 so much easier - knowing it stops. 3w
  •   the_minor_key @laracameron it's strange- I'm at the point now where it honestly feels like this is my life- forever. I teeter between acceptance/appreciation and despair. I can count the number of visitors I've had or trips out I've made 'out' in the 18 months since she was born. I went out to dinner when I was 17 weeks pregnant, which was late 2012. Ha. God when I write it down it seems crazy. I've been to a friends house in town maybe twice. Too isolated for mothers groups. Instagram mums were what kept me sane. I understand why friends and family feel a 1.5 hour drive is too much. But still... sigh, a village would be amazing. X 3w
  •   laracameron @the_minor_key that sounds incredibly hard! Where are you based?? 3w
  •   thequiethedonist Speaking of isolation, when I became the non-primary carer I felt instantly isolated again as a mother and creating our mothers group post baby bedtime wine club has been the best thing ever. Never underestimate how many parents are hanging for a post bedtime wine or trip out of the house dans baby. 3w
  •   the_minor_key @thequiethedonist 'dans baby' that's brilliant. Out in the Yarra Ranges in the middle of the forest. It's beautiful. Doesn't help that I have a driving phobia. Ha. 3w

laracameron First ever day in the studio without bubs! @caitlinklooger: "Sorry Lara can't come to the phone right now she's just... with somebody." 3w
  •   allsubtext LIKE x a million. Enjoy your time! Even if you are hooked up to the juicer 🍼 3w
  •   elfinandisla How did it go? Xo 3w
  •   laracameron @allsubtext best emojis ever xx 3w
  •   laracameron @elfinandisla *I* had a great time. Meanwhile she didn't smile all day, and when I got home she saw me, beamed, then promptly burst into tears and needed cuddles. I didn't think that'd happen at 4.5months! Meanwhile our pants arrived and look gorgeous! Will try to get a pic soon (cc @allsubtext) 3w
  •   elfinandisla @laracameron aww bless her she missed her mama! I'm so pleased they arrived and you love them! Look forward to seeing a pic xo 3w
  •   thequiethedonist Aw @laracameron my bub did that a few times at that age but promptly grew out of it. She loves saying goodbye in the morning now :( 3w
  •   allsubtext @laracameron the more practice she gets hanging with other folks the easier it will get for both of you (promise!). Z loves it when it's just her and Alex, and she's getting better with the grandmothers. On another note -- for baby pants delivery! 3w
