  • 1. I had to go out yesterday and wasn't sure if LO would need to eat during that time. I packed a 4 ounce bottle of BM, never used it and forgot to take it out of my bag until this morning :( I hate wasting milk!

    2. Savannah Guthry's engagement ring is beautiful, I'm happy for her!  

    3. I got my first pp period on mother's day.  

    4. My H's 30th birthday is this week and I still don't have a gift for him.

  • Still weaning from the pump :( but feeling good about the decision.  Taking it reeeeally slow to cut out the sessions because A. Callan has a cold and started DC (but in my head and heart, I know she would still have a cold regardless if she was exclusively FF or getting BM, doesn't make a diff).  B. I don't want my boobies to hurt. 

    I wistfully allowed myself to fantasize that if I had another baby, I might get BFing finally right...then wanted to smack myself for wanting to have another baby as a guinea pig to correct my perceived wrong doings.

    This reminds me of TTCAL and PgAL's "10 Things Thursday". Maybe we need to introduce that here? :)  I think it originally started as "10 Things Tuesday" 

    1. We finally decided on a daycare provider. I contacted her last night. I'm still feeling weird about leaving A with a "stranger" in 6 weeks, but I think that's normal.  Right?

    2. I am grateful that he'll have been with us for 17 weeks before he starts DC, due to work giving me an extra week (13 total) and Dh, MIL and my sister covering teh other four weeks.

    3. MIL is coming over today so that I can get out of the house and try to do some clothes shopping.  It'll be kind of weird. I haven't been away from A for more than an hour tops since we have been home from the hospital.

    4. Can't wait for the warm weather that is expected to arrive here on Thursday! 

    5. DS is cranky but has a full belly and an empty diaper.  He's fighting sleep and I just want him to give in- even for 30 minutes in teh swing.

    6. The baby book I read said I shouldn't ley him fall asleep in anything but the crib after two months. I am choosing to ignore this today...and yesterday...

    7.  I miss cooking.

    8. I am sooooo looking forward to getting my hair cut on Saturday.

    9. The Rock-a-Bye baby station on Pandora is great.  So is their version of "Free Fallin'".

    10. Our hand-me-down swing is totally dying.

    Oh, I totally know that!  I feel great about my decision, I *promised* myself that I would FF and not yutz around with the pump if BFing didn't work for me again (I EPed for 8 mos for DS). Darn thing keeps looking at me though, lol.  When I get down to 3 pumps per day I'm going to just toss it :)

      Its totally normal! 

    So are feelings of guilt, wanting to leave your job to SAH, and wanting to throat punch people who say stupid things to moms who have just returned to work like how they "loved their baby too much to leave them at DC", how their wife quit their job on her second day back at work, the latest horror stories about bad things that have happened to babies at unlicensed DCs, etc, etc.  

    Its sucks at first, but gets better.  (((hugs))

  • DH doesn't think its necessary to find a babysitter. He said we can bring LO with us or one of us can stay home while the other does whatever. WTF DH.

    I expected more out of Mother's Day. I am slightly disappointed.

    DH wants me to update his resume. Since he doesn't have any idea where his old one is...that means I have to start from scratch. Yuck.

    Walgreens has a loyalty program that you can earn points by walking or running. Its called Steps and I think it might make me get off my a$$.

    My Depo shot stopped my period for 3 months but then I spotted for 2 weeks. I'll take it.

    Yea, the babysitter thing sucks. I think if you don't live near family you need one for the sake of your marriage!

    I kinda feel the same way about Mother's Day. Half of the day I felt so blessed and happy then the other half I was like WTF DH...it's my day LOL!

  • 1: My DS and DD1 are fighting like cats and dogs lately. This morning they were fighting about who's turn it was to use the green cereal bowl. All of my cereal bowls are green.

    2: I lied to DH last night and told him I had a terrible headache. He sent me to bed early to rest, while he did homework, dinner, and baths with all 4 kids. I read my kindle under the covers. My house looked like a war zone this morning, but my night off was glorious.

    3: Being a WAHM is much harder than I expected.

    1. Then I think you should nominate DH to stay home each time until he gets with the babysitter idea :) 

    2. ((Hugs)).  It's a day that has so many emotions wrapped up in it- especially for loss mamas. 

    3. Ugh.  I have not had to start a resume from scratch since college.  My design major friend did the layout and I have just been updating it since.

  • We're deep into the 4-month-wakeful phase. My perfect, easy to fall asleep and stay asleep little DD has turned into a fall asleep but fake us out every.single.time. we put her down GINGERLY into her crib - ping! She's up and yelling. I have slept in the last two days and arrived to work late.

    I am super grateful I accrued a lot of comp time working on my reports during my maternity leave so that I can use some of it to sleep in yesterday and this morning.

    I am super angry at DH - he dropped out during his first semester of graduate school back in 2011, decided to purchase an online program in financial planning where he needs to take seven courses in a 21 or 22 month period...he has less than a year left to finish all the courses and yet he is STILL ON THE SECOND CLASS.  I have no words. He's wasted enough of my money already...money we could have used to remodel the kitchen and bathroom. I am sooo ready for him to find a job like last year!

    It's a don't f--k with me kind of day....but I love you guys!

  • I like the idea of 10 things Tues. or Thurs.

    1. DS made me cry happy tears again.  I read him Go, Dog, Go, and at the end, he gave me a big smile!  Not sure how much is coincidence at 9 weeks, but I'll take it!

    2. I went to the grocery store alone on Sunday.  I was only gone for an hour, but DH acted like it had been a whole day when I got home.  He ended up feeding him some frozen milk that I was thawing to rotate my freezer stash, even though DS had only eaten an hour and a half before.  DH also complained that as soon as he got into the shower, DS woke up and started crying.  Welcome to my weekdays...And he wonders why I'm so excited to take a shower on the weekend while he's here. 

    3. It will be interesting to see how this summer goes (refer to #2). DH will be home for the summer since he's a teacher, and that is when I go back to work.  He's already has been making comments that I shouldn't comfort nurse because he won't be able to this summer, or that I should let DS CIO because he won't be able to get anything done.  It's way too early to start the CIO method.

  • 1.  DD has started crying inconsolably every time my DH holds her for more than 10 or so minutes.  She smiles and is happy for the first little bit but then he can not get her to calm down.  She will start head butting him and searching for a boob but when he tries to feed her she wont take anything.  Sometimes it is right after she eats so I know she isn't hungry.  As soon as I take her from him she stops crying.  He has been taking it really hard and I feel really bad.  He told me the other day that sometimes he wishes we were FF'ing because he thinks she wouldn't be doing this if she didn't have the boob.  I kind of wanted to hit him because it has been so hard to get to this point with BF'ing but I tried to be supportive instead. (sorry, that got long!)

    2.  We traveled this weekend and I got to shop for DD.  I got so many cute things and I was super excited to dress DD up for daycare this morning!

    3. DD slept for 6 1/2 hours last night!  I woke up because my boobs were hurting and when I realized it had been 6 hours I ran to her room in panic.  She was snoozing away!  Then, I had to wake her up for daycare this morning!  We were late because I kept thinking I would give her just a few more minutes.  I know it wont last so I I'm going to try to take advantage of my restful day!

    4.  They are killing me at work.  Seriously.  I never had this much to do before I went on leave.  Unfortunately I'm the only person in my discipline of engineering that is available to work right now so I keep getting everything thrown at me.  This is going to be a tough month!

    5.  I feel so lucky to have found this community of women.  You ladies have really gotten me through.  I don't think I say thank you enough.

    We don't have any family close by. I'm not sure what his hang up is about a babysitter. There is a nice girl/family down the street that I have been chatting with for 3 years. I asked if she babysits and her mom said she just got CPR certified but hasn't started yet (she's 14). Her mom said she would come with her the first few times. Sounds good to me!

    DH doesn't really have any problems staying home with DS. The last time we went out just the two of us was when my sisters came to meet Jacob...in December. Ugh.

    DH failed at Mother's Day. I didn't tell him what I expected so it is partially my fault. He just isn't even remotely sentimental.

  • N is the loudest child ever. He snorts, grunts, breathes heavy just like his father, and toots like a grown man. I find it adorably weird.

    DH is going to San Fran next monwed and I'm very resentful of him. He asked me if he could go and I didn't want to be perceived like this wife that can't handle it to his boss, so I said we'd figure it out. So I can't really give him a hard time about it because its my own stupid fault. But I'm dreading the time he's away with both boys on my own, anticipating no sleep, and the field trip on Monday that I'm going on with DS1. Thankfully my mom will watch N during that so I don't have to push a stroller around the zoo while chasing a 4 year old. But if I could just fast forward through his trip, that would be amazing...

    1.  DD has started crying inconsolably every time my DH holds her for more than 10 or so minutes.  She smiles and is happy for the first little bit but then he can not get her to calm down.  She will start head butting him and searching for a boob but when he tries to feed her she wont take anything.  Sometimes it is right after she eats so I know she isn't hungry.  As soon as I take her from him she stops crying.  He has been taking it really hard and I feel really bad.  He told me the other day that sometimes he wishes we were FF'ing because he thinks she wouldn't be doing this if she didn't have the boob.  I kind of wanted to hit him because it has been so hard to get to this point with BF'ing but I tried to be supportive instead. (sorry, that got long!)

    My DD does something similar, much to DH's frustration, he's afraid he's not holding her the right way. FX it's just a phase!

    This reminds me of TTCAL and PgAL's "10 Things Thursday". Maybe we need to introduce that here? :)  I think it originally started as "10 Things Tuesday"

    I miss TTT and think we should do it here on PAL.

    AL always welcome! 

  • 1. DD has now STTN three times. The longest was on Saturday night from 9-6. Sadly I was awake for 2 hours in the middle of that because she faked me out. She started to fuss and suck at her hands so I got up, warmed a bottle and when I came back she was sound asleep. I then could not go back to sleep. She did that to me again last night, but I was able to go back to sleep after about 30 minutes.

    2. I am going through my closet and finally getting rid of a ton of clothes that I have not worn in a couple of years, no longer fit or I just don't like anymore. I am already up to 5 bags for Goodwill with more to come.

    3. The sleep sheep is one of my favorite gifts! I love the ocean waves sound and it even helps me fall asleep.

    4. My MIL is in town all week and she is an early riser so I have been able to get some extra sleep as she watches DD from about 6-9 AM.

    Would it be a faux pas if I only wrote 5 things on a TTT since I don't have the time to site and write 10?

    Woo hoo!  Lucky you!  The most I have gotten was 6 1/2 hours last night.  I also love the ocean waves on the sleep sheep.  She goes to sleep with it every night and when I'm rocking her it makes me so sleepy and relaxed!

  • *new to the board*

    1.) I was -stupdily- kind of hoping that it would be a while before I got my period again...Just my luck, I started at exactly 5 weeks PP. *sigh* Cramps, I did not miss you.

    2.) While I was pregnant I got rid of all the clothes in my closet that didn't fit at the time to make room for baby clothes and gear and now I miss all my clothes.

  • 1.  I feel very vain that I am so overly concerned with DD's baby acne.  She turns 2 months old Friday and I feel like her pictures will be ruined by all the pimples.  I know it is common and I know there isn't much I can do, but it is driving me crazy!  I called my pedi because I was so hopeful she would have a magic solution....she didn't.

    2.  I have lacked motivation the last two days to do anything beyond laundry and general clean-up.  I had a big plan to clean out closets and do some touch up painting this week and still haven't touched any of it.

    3.  I have no clue how to dress DD.  It is warm outside but our house is kept a little cool so I never know whether I should put her in pants or a romper or what.  I have a closet full of cute summer clothes for her but keep putting a onesie and leggings on her because I am just not sure what to do.  

    4.  My in-laws were supposed to come here over Memorial Day weekend and they decided not to.  My heart nearly burst with joy!

    5.  I bought a ring sling so I have something to put DD in when I go to the grocery store.  I don't know if I am doing something wrong but it just doesn't feel right.  I don't feel comfortable taking her in that at all.  

    6.  I only have two pairs of jeans that fit right now.  

    7.   DH quit smoking when we had our baby and I had a dream last night that he was still smoking and hiding it.  I'm still sitting here wondering if it was really a dream or if I need to jump his a$$ about it because it was true.

    8.  I really want plantation blinds for the front of our house but they are ridiculously expensive.

    9.  I nearly cut off the tip of my finger with a new paper cutter I bought to trim pictures of LO.  I almost threw up a little when it happened.

    10.  Oh look, I did 10 things!  I miss TTT too!

    Fun!

    I dislike dancing shows, but like singing shows. (The voice, American idol, etc)

    I had to tell my coworkers I was pregnant today because I look 6 months pregnant and I am only three. My baggy clothes were sloppy and I wanted to look more professional. 

    I am exhausted.
