Reality Check

I looked around and felt slightly amused (if not exhausted) by the scene unfolding around me, so I grabbed a camera and snapped a photo. Then today I decided to procrastinate and make note of the details that sum up life around the home... that is, when I am trying to work. Pretty sure you have to click the picture to read any of the captions..

In a nutshell, they are wonderful kids. They of course have their moments, but what preschoolers don't, seriously? I just find that it's such a striking, instant, difference in their behavior from when I am playing with them and paying 100% attention to them... to the instant I stop, they switch into crazy mode! Needless to say, next year I might have to consider one or two days a week putting Henry in some kind of daycare or getting a nanny. Lucy will be in kindergarten. A few hours of peace, a couple days a week, would do wonders. I think right now it's a tough time to run a business and be a SAHM. It won't always be this way, with all the chaos.

At least I can laugh about it... sometimes.

Awaken a sleeker, shinier look with GHD’s most luxurious styler yet. Improved contoured plates offer even better snag-free styling whether you’re creating voluptuous curls or seductive sleekness. Sleep mode offers
added safety and universal voltage means you get optimum performance no matter where in the world you travel. The other reviews on here are top marks but After owning a pair of ghd for the last 4 years my daughter wanted a pair of her own so i ordered 2 pairs for preference the newmidnight and the pink and white limited addition ghd's,the midnight collection ones are not as good, they are not as rigid and when pressing them through my
hair they seemed to pull your hair and the arms moved from side to side, the plates are good and did straighten the hair good,
GHD i Norge
GHD Rettetang Norge
GHD Rettetang
GHD Rettetang Billig
GHD Rettetang Pris
GHD Rettetang Salg
GHD Midnight Collection
GHD Midnight Collection Deluxe
GHD Midnight Collection Gift Set
GHD Pink Limited Edition
GHD Rosa
GHD Leopard
GHD Lilla
Rosa GHD Rettetang
GHD Rettetang New Wave
GHD Pink Limited Edition
but it seems the plastic around the plates is the problem they do not glide through your hair like my original ghd's i already have, i then tried the new pink ghd's and they were brilliant they glide lovely through your hair without pulling,so i had to send the midnight collection back.
Sleeker body is cooler to the touch and lighter to hold. All this along with a heat proof pouch, travel dryer, styling clips, baroque mirror packaged perfectly in a stylish treasure chest.
