TLC shared a poem that a dad had shared on the Facebook group Trichy Parenting... and now I'm sharing it with you.  She's a lucky girl.    

My daughter pulls most when she's stressed.
I eat most when I'm tired
My daughter pulls most when she's driving alone.
I eat most when I'm stressed.
My daughter pulled most when she's bored
I eat most when I'm bored.

My daughter wears a wig
I wear a Xxl....ok xxxl

My daughters pulling doesn't bother her till she looks in the mirror
My weight doesnt bother me until have to go to a function and my suit doesn't fit.

She should stop pulling
I should stop eating so much.

We are the same.
I am not better than her.
She is not better than me
She loves me
I love her

Any of you lucky enough to have a support system like this girl?  I know I've been blessed with a wonderfully supportive family!  It makes such a difference to know you have someone standing beside you.

Not sure what happened

I don't pull from my bottom lashes.  Bottom lashes hurt too much to pull (that probably sounds weird coming from someone who pulls their top lashes, brows and hair).  Not sure why it's more sensitive or painful, but it is- so I've never had any urges to pull them.  Occasionally, I'll pull out the tweezers and grab one that is causing a top lash to snag.  I figure I'd rather get rid of one single lash that's causing a problem instead of ripping out a bunch of my top lashes.  And even then, it hurts to pull them out.  So the other day I was rather surprised to see a gap in my bottom lashes (which I think stands out waaay more than top lashes).  I don't pull my bottom lashes!  I don't have an urge to pull them!  Why were some missing!?!?  I felt kind of annoyed, but oh, well... they'll grow back and it won't get worse cause I (honestly) don't have any urge to pull them.  THEN... today I was just tugging for loose lashes (like normal people do sometimes... I think?).  Not sure if my mascara was bothering me (I think it's getting old and dry), but I tugged my bottom lashes (near the newly formed gap) and without any sensation- at least 4 lashes just fell out. I was shocked.  I didn't even feel them put up a fight.  They truly felt like loose lashes, ready to give up the ghost.  I went to the mirror, stunned... and sad.  This isn't my problem area... now it looks awful.  
And there's one lonely lash in the middle of this gap that sticks out like a sore thumb (see pic below).  I don't want to pull that one either, but it seems so obvious just sitting there.  And if I pull it, I feel like it'll make the gap complete.  One giant gap (which I don't want). I also know that one lash isn't going to do the job of several lashes- no matter how much mascara I can goop on it.  It's still a gap.  It just looks awful.
Not feeling great.

It doesn't have to be New Year's day to start something new, to start a resolution... every day is a new day.  On New Year's Eve, I was thinking I'd try again and start 2014 pull free.  Then at 12:06am, I looked at the clock and realized that I had already pulled (without even thinking about it).  New Year's resolution blown?  No... every day is a new day!  I don't need to wait until 2015 to "try try again"- I can do it now!
