It's been a while!

Its been so long since I wrote last.  I'm not going to sit here and say that I'm starting back up and I'm going to be on a schedule and blah blah blah.  I came to realize that I want this website to be a no pressure place for me.  I place that I come to post when I feel inspired.  Sometimes you need that rather than a place you feel like you NEED to update.  You know what I mean?

 

Anyways. I was reading some of my old posts a bit ago.  Its so interesting seeing where my head was a year ago, 3 years ago.. etc.  Thats one of my favorite things about blogging. But one thing I noticed over anything was your comments.  I was reading through them and instantly got happy.. and for lack of a better word... mushy. LOL. Reading your words tonight, I felt so incredibly LUCKY to have such amazing subscribers and followers.  Not that I don't feel that way all the time.. but tonight it just hit me differently so I felt inclined to say something. :) So many of you have been following me for years.  I recognize so many of you by names and pictures.. and I have even made friends with some of my long time followers.  

I just wanted to thank all of you for your support.  Its not just about support either.  I mean you guys help me do my passion everyday.  You listen and uplift me when I vent.  You share your thoughts and give me fun comments to read everyday when I'm bored... (which YES I read them all.)  You guys allow me to stay home with my girls... and work from home.  You guys thumbs up my videos and help me succeed. You guys read my rambles. You are some of the funniest people and make me laugh all the time.  You inspire me and motivate me.  You snap me photos and videos that I LOVE watching.. (even though I can't always respond.)  You retweet my videos so I can gain more support.  You are interested in my thoughts and feelings. You re-pin my content.  You literally make up the Carah Amelie brand JUST AS MUCH AS ME.... 1,000%.  

I feel like we are literally like a little team.  As corny as that sounds.  I know so many youtubers make "family names" and i have never done that because it just is so......I don't know. LOL.  But in a way I do feel like a little internet family and team.  It's a cool feeling.. and i feel so lucky to have you guys. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the support.. I know I don't say it enough.. but I feel it everyday.  You guys are the best.  And if you want a team name we can go ahead and jump on that band wagon..... but honestly, you are more than a gang to me.






Q&A - Eating Disorder, FEARS, Potty Training

I'm not sure what Travis's answer to this is.. but I think ALL mom's can agree on my answer. I fear I am not raising my kids good enough, or I'm not a good enough Mom.  This is something that all Mom's deal with not just me.  To us, raising our kids is THE most important thing we will ever do. It's always in the back of my mind that… "I could have handled that different" "I buy her too many toys" "I yell too much" "Do I play with them enough?"... No matter what you do you feel you could do better.  It's just part of Mommyhood.  :)

Here was my problem with Bug.  I listened to other people to much and didn't follow my Mom instincts.  Everyone told me she should be potty trained by 2.  So many people said… "MY Kids were potty trained by 2!!" Like it was this universal age that is set in stone and if your kid isn't then… WTF??  I knew Alaina wasn't ready.  I started a little after 1.5 years because I felt pressure from outsiders.  This time around.. I will never do that.  I'm going to use my gut instincts.. and I think it will be much easier this time around.  I think it also depends on the Kid. Who knows… maybe Emery will be ready at 1.5 years.

Honestly.. Vlogging is NOT a normal job at all.  It's normal to me, and to people who watch vloggers regularly… but not to other people that aren't familiar with youtube. No matter how long I vlog, people will probably not really get it, or think its weird.. and I have just accepted that. I have never really been one to care what others think about what I do.  I remember always telling people I wanted to be on the Real World SO bad… I even thought about sending a tape LOL.  So many people would say, "REALLY? you would want your life out there for the world to see? NOT ME.. that would be so weird." and for some reason I never thought that way… I'm just not that private of a person. I'm not sure what my parents thought.  My parents are always very supportive of what I do!  I think they had their legitimate concerns.. but that is understandable.  They are very open to it, and they don't mind being in them at all. Travis's brother and Girlfriend also started a vlog channel of their own which was really cool!

At first yes.  It was the first time I had ever talked about it on my channel.. and I had been on youtube for 3 years at that point!  No one knew until then.. so yes, I was a little scared.  But at the same time… it has never been something that has bothered me to talk about. If you watched my eating disoder story video… you will see that I am pretty nonchalant about it. As I said above.. I'm not a private person in the slightest… which is very strange being that I'm so shy.  I don't mind talking about my struggles or experiences.  I have this strong urge to want to help people and inspire people.. and I feel like sharing my life experiences really helps to satisfy that part of me.
