Loneliness does not come from having no people around you, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to you.

Breasts are a scandal because they shatter the border between motherhood and sexuality.

Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine.
Your mental health is my priority. (via be-fearless-brave-and-kind)

If I’m not somewhere where there’s a lot of trees or plants, I will suffocate.

What was everyone doing when they found out Kate was in labor?

I think it was about 5 in the morning. I heard someone moving around in the next room and I woke up and saw it on my phone! I could barely get back to sleep after that.

i waited up for like, three hours until it was confirmed.  

Hanging out with my then bf at his friend’s house, freaking out solo style upon receiving the tweet and texting Lucie lol

Waking up after another sleepless night with my own son who was just a little over six weeks old! 😊
