Michelle on Matilda (when she was a baby),

“”I feel like I didn’t have any relationship with my body before Matilda. Well, I did, but it was just a bad one. After having my daughter I can’t judge myself in the same way. My body has done this totally miraculous but utterly ordinary thing. The downside is that my vocabulary has shrunk to the size of a pea. Since having a kid I just don’t have the same access to the world. I don’t see as many shows, I don’t go to many movies and I hardly read any books anymore. I’m lucky to make it through a book a month. So you start to develop in a much more non-verbal way, which can be so frustrating. Also there’s been a lot going on in my personal life and part of me is… I don’t know. I shouldn’t talk about it but it’s like I’m re-emerging back into the world or something.””

    im not sure how the whole ‘godparent’ thing works. what does that mean for jake since heath died? or is it just a tradition with no real meaning?

  • Katrina

    It used to be that godparents would have an active role in the religious education and such but it isnt like that anymore.. its mostly just an interest and important part of their lives these days… doesnt really mean anything more usually when a parent is lost. sometimes, like my cousin who lost her father young, her godfather and her started growing a closer bond becuase he was there for her and her family afterwards

    I really admire Michelle for telling it as it is. True, a baby will turn your world upside down in every aspect! I barely can remember what I had for breakfast, my favorite tunes are the wiggles and now accustomed to speaking very slowly to my hubby when asked for explanation LOL 🙂
