Shiny Shiny

Jamie’s wish prompt this week is ‘how do you wish to shine?’ and honestly, I don’t feel very shiny at the moment.  I’m feeling a bit sleep deprived, a LOT unsure of myself and generally frayed around the edges.

I guess this is motherhood.

Don’t get me wrong.  Generally, my little family is doing really well.  We’re all healthy, we’ve got the feeding thing sorted… we just aren’t very good at sleeping.  Especially at night.  And the stinking hot weather means it’s not just the baby having trouble.

But back to shining.  This is going to sound whiny, but I keep running in to people who tell me I look wonderfully fit and healthy for just having had a baby.  It’s a lovely thing to say, but I don’t believe them.  What I’d like to wish for is my shiny good health back.  No abs of steel, no Jessica Parker magical post-baby body, but like tigger, I miss my bounce.

I wish for shiny good health.

There.

The good thing about a wish like this is I know how to get there.  I need to eat well, start exercising again, and I’m sure we’ll get the sleep thing sorted soon.

Meanwhile, if you’ll excuse me, I can hear a hungry baby waking up.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I can hear a hungry baby waking up…
