It’s no secret that I was bullied.

That I endured more than just friendly classroom humour.

That I dreaded going to school and facing the ridicule and teasing.

Despite the memories I would not change a thing.

Today I’m guest posting over at Kelly K’s new blog.

I Survived The Mean Girls.

Please visit me there.

Today I’m linking up with one of the funniest bloggers I know, Kim from Mom go Something Something.

She’s also one of the bravest!

I heart her.

I’m also providing you with a guest post!

Two for one! Crazy right!

Enjoy.

I know you’ve all heard of me. Leighann has talked about me on the twitter, she’s mentioned me casually in conversations, but she doesn’t really give credit where credit is due.

I was a huge part of her life.

We were together every day for a minimum of an hour. A minimum.

Singing together, enjoying coffee, and eating delicious treats eagerly before we reached our destination so we wouldn’t have to share.

Creating memories.

Road trips on a whim, shopping endlessly on weekends, and making the transition from a childless woman to a mother.

People change.

Priorities change.

I wasn’t her priority anymore.

My once shiny paint began to chip and rust and the car wash visits became further and further apart.

Trips to the mechanic for an oil change became scattered, unscheduled and then not at all.

I begged her to take me.

I coughed, sputtered, stalled.

Her mind was elsewhere.

I wanted her attention badly, I missed her and the time we spent together, her hands gliding over the wheel, the sound of her voice filling the car with the song that played on the radio, my engine purring along.

So I dropped my muffler.

I needed her to care.

She fixed me.

Because she did care.

But it wasn’t the same. Her touch wasn’t the same, her voice was irritated, and my once clean floor was now littered with toys, cups, and sticky liquids that I couldn’t identify.

I was growing tired of trying.

She was tired of fixing me.

Of fixing us.

So I did the only thing I could think of.

I ended it.

There you have it.

A guest post by my car.

I’m still waiting to find out from the insurance company if they are fixing it or just writing it off.

It’s a 2004 with 300,000 km on it.

It was a sad car.

But.

I loved it.

I’m all over the interwebs lately!

Maybe a bit promiscuous?

Only with people I know and I’m always safe! Tee Hee

Today you can find me over at Amy’s house.

I’m sharing a War Story.

Today I have a guest post for you from the talented Chantelle from Mom Went Crazy!
I really relate to Chantelle because she’s just returning to work after having her second baby, she writes from her heart, and she’s HILARIOUS!
If you haven’t checked out her site DO IT!
Her first Vlog had me laughing hysterically!
So, follow her, comment, stalk, it will all make her day!


Hey everyone,

I’m Chantelle, from Mom Went Crazy.

Sometimes I’m funny, sometimes I’m serious. Other times I rant.

Today, I’m guest posting for Leighann.

Like a lot of you, I write based on my mood.

Today was my first day back to work after having my youngest daughter, Sophie.

My mood today?

Relief.

I know that sounds strange.

But can I be honest with you about one thing?

It was so nice to talk to grownups all day.

Don’t get me wrong.

I love my short people. I have two girls and they are awesome.

But I’ve spent the last 10 months at home, blogging for sanity and tweeting for support.

I’ve been a prince rescuing a princess, a puppy, a movie watcher, a puppet master, lunch and snack server, cleaner, butt wiper, nose

wiper, mess wiper, driver, milk machine, and boo-boo kisser.

Today?

I was a grownup talking with other grownups.

It was a welcome change.

Leaving your baby is a difficult thing.

My daycare center is a wonderful place.

My oldest daughter loves it.

My cousin works there.

Three of the teachers that work there were my daycare teachers. One of them is in Sophie’s room.

I feel confident that she is happy and loved.

I sent her a few weeks early to get her used to it.

I didn’t want to be a wreck with worry my first day back.

They have her on a routine. She’s napping for a change! Two hours in a row! Amazing.

Yes, my life is a little more rushed.

But, I feel so complete when I’m working at the flower shop.

If I didn’t love it, I couldn’t leave my babies.

I’m a better mommy when I am working.

I have a chance to miss my daughters.

When I was home, I spent a lot of time cooking and cleaning up messes because there were three of in the house all day.

We had time to play later because we were always home.

Some days ‘later’ never came.

Now that I work all day when I come home, it’s just our time.

We play and play and play and play.

Cleaning can wait until after bedtime.

Because the three hours from home-time until bed-time are all I get with my precious babies.

I make it count.

Thank you Chantelle for taking the time to Guest Post for me!

I was so honoured to have you!

This past week I was in The Hot Seat over at Four Plus an Angel.

My fellow bloggers asked me some serious blog questions.

For example:

What would I do in a zombie chase? Save an old woman or purchase shoes at discount price?

People….

Go check out the awesome questions and nothing but serious answers I gave at Jessica’s house!

Today?

I’m a little giddy.

Today is my first time guest posting.

I’m over at Chantelle’s house “Mom Went Crazy.”

If you’ve never been there you MUST go… not just because I’m there but because she’s awesome!

And Crazy!

That’s why she’s on vacation, because if she doesn’t go relax her head will spin right off her body!

It’s a pretty serious day.

Flowers can be sent directly to my house so that when I get home I will be super surprised.

Go check it out!
