  • @workbenchconference 2.16.19 - What do you build with scrap wood? If it's hardwood, I usually go for a cutting board or coasters.

What about pine though? I recently built these storage beds, and I used some scraps to build this step stool so our daughter can climb up more easily!

Dad win!

  • #day5 of the #30dayinstagramchallenge - Mess.
.
I have been called a mess more times than I can count on both hands, although most of the time, I have self-diagnosed that label. Anxiety, depression, domestic abuse. They have all played a role in my mess-like state over the years. Things can so easily take a hold of me and make me feel utter rubbish. However, Mum guilt is the main villain of the piece these days. Some days I find it so hard and I get so upset that I may have done or said something wrong when parenting my children. My anxiety never helps. Parenting is a journey, that contains endless amounts of obstacles along the way. The usual ones are the potty training stage. The terrible twos. Puberty etc. But, I have an 8 year old son who still has toilet issues. He is also THE world's fussiest eater and never drinks enough through the day. In between all that, I am constantly worrying that my actions and reactions will affect my son in a negative way. Especially when it comes to a sensitive topic such as his toilet problems. I am so proud of him and he is honestly the most amazing little man, but my god, he knows how to make me worry. My mind is a jumble of thoughts, feelings and worries most days and I find myself wondering how I have ended up laying in bed feeling guilty for not letting my 8 year old son sleep in bed with me, josh and Indigo. I lay in bed, thinking I should have read just a page longer for his bedtime story, or I should have told him I love him one more time before he fell asleep. No joke, parents are mental.

  • #selfcare2019 learn a new language 😜 not a quick fix either tonight but learning to communicate using I messages helps take the accusations and anger out of your confrontations. Start with WHEN YOU.....I FEEL....BECAUSE (how it has a tangible effect on you) and then request something from that person. Ie. Would you be willing....... 💖 when you leave your clothes on the floor I feel tired because I have to pick them up on top of the other things I have to do. Would you be willing to put them in the washing basket or can you think of a way we can solve this problem together? It takes a lot of stepping back and breathing to communicate in this way. But it does take the anger out if it and when children or your partner learn that you truly want everyone to feel happy with the outcome, it makes it more attainable. I did my NVC workshop 5 years ago and am still a mere novice as get so easily triggered and revert to other ways of communicating.  However, having another option hopefully means I’ll choose it sometimes obviously more possible with #selfcare #awareparenting #innerworld #nvc #compassionatecommunication #imessages #selfcare2019 #parenting #bethechange #selfcare2019 learn a new language 😜 not a quick fix either tonight but learning to communicate using I messages helps take the accusations and anger out of your confrontations.
