Maddie-The truth of the lie :take 2

You girls know that hubby gave me this book about the Maddie McCann case.
I don't know if you remember my post about it...
About what I feel and think over this subject...The person who wrote
this book is the police inspector that was leading the investigation
and then was discharged of his duty with no reasonable explanation
(While the investigation was still on...)
I still wonder who are that couple to have so much POWER!...
could post a never ending number of that book passages to make my point
about this, but this one I'm posting here is pretty clear to
demonstrate my point of view...Here in Portugal we have this old saying
that goes like this: «To a good understander, half word is enough...»
This was a couple of weeks prior they became "arguidos" in the case...
investigators observed that there were 2 realities in the couple's
bedroom.On the Kate Healy side there were several pictures of the girl
on the wall all of them had either a rosary or a saint (like if they
were watching over the little girls soul).And on the  nightstand there
was a bible  with a saint picture marking this particular page of the
Old Testament (Samuel II,12th chapter):

«13David said to Nathan, ‘I have sinned against the Lord.’ Nathan said to David, ‘Now the Lord has put away your sin; you shall not die.
14Nevertheless, because by this deed you have utterly scorned the Lord,the child that is born to you shall die.’
15Then Nathan went to his house.

The Lord struck the child that Uriah’s wife bore to David, and it became very ill.
16David therefore pleaded with God for the child; David fasted, and went in and lay all night on the ground.
17The elders of his house stood beside him, urging him to rise from the ground; but he would not, nor did he eat food with them.
18On the seventh day the child died. And the
servants of David were afraid to tell him that the child was dead; for
they said, ‘While the child was still alive, we spoke to him, and he
did not listen to us; how then can we tell him the child is dead? He
may do himself some harm.’
19But when David saw that his servants were
whispering together, he perceived that the child was dead; and David
said to his servants, ‘Is the child dead?’ They said, ‘He is dead.’

20 Then David rose from the ground, washed, anointed himself, and changed his clothes. He went into the house of the Lord, and worshiped; he then went to his own house; and when he asked, they set food before him and he ate.
21Then his servants said to him, ‘What is this
thing that you have done? You fasted and wept for the child while it
was alive; but when the child died, you rose and ate food.’
22He said, ‘While the child was still alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, “Who knows? The Lord may be gracious to me, and the child may live.”
23But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he will not return to me.’

24 Then David consoled his wife Bathsheba, and went to her, and lay with her; and she bore a son, and he named him Solomon. The Lord loved him,
25and sent a message by the prophet Nathan; so he named him Jedidiah, because of the Lord

On Gerry side of the room there was nothing related to the
girl...Just some books that made the investigators go like :"what????"
  • Missing and abducted children: a law enforcement guide
  • Making Every Child Matter, CEOP
This books are RESERVED  to law enforcement agents ONLY!How did he got them??.....

Wordless Wednesday--18th Edition



"Lately I've been living in a roller coaster...
Up and down...
And twisting around...
Sometimes in the clouds...
Sometimes in the ground...
Embracing so many questions!
Which answers just can't be found!...
And when everything seems to be over and clear,
Here we go again, for an extra round!

Lately I've been living high above my self...
Just trying to figure it out...
Where's my place on Earth?...
Why do I feel like screaming and shout?!
Am I still a woman?Or just a wife?...Or a mother?...
Does anybody really cares about?!...

Lately,I've been living...
And that's all that matters for now...
I eat...I breath...I love...
Even when reason tells me to slow down...
I fall and I get up...
I fail and I retry...
I reinvent my self
Thou I don't know why,
The answers will come somehow..."

Keeping my baby close to me

When ever I have a baby I always like to feel him close to me...It's like if the baby is still part of my body.
Being married with an African,made me realize that are some methods they have that are in fact quite useful.
So we use this sort of African fabric called "capulanas" to strap the baby on our back or on our sides.
Thou they are quite handy because they allow us to move around freely with the baby,they are not very comfortable I have to admit.
Thankfully, someone came up with the slings for babies!And those yes!They are amazing!
On you can find those comfy ones in the most beautiful patterns.
So if you are thinking,what good is it for, just consider this:

-If you are an active parent,you don't have to stop cause you can move all around with your hands free
-Keeping the baby close to you calms the baby
-It helps strengthening the mother/baby bond
-Breastfeeding will be easier for you and for the baby as well
-You can use it in different positions
-You can use it since the day the baby is born till he/she gets to 35lbs
-When you're not using it it's easy to keep it away because you can fold it
-The patterns are gorgeous!
-The baby body weight is perfectly distribute
-There are 10 sizes so you don't have to worry
-You can get also a leg padding to make the hip carry more comfortable
-It's easy to care.Just wash it in the machine and line dry it

And they are hand made in Seattle!
So if you have a baby or even a toddler needing begging you to carry him/her the whole time, a baby carrier would be the right choice!!!Just think of all the advantages!
