  • my lactation consultant recommended one glass of Reisling a day to help with milk production...I rarely miss a day without it. Got to feed that baby! :)

  • I just ground and brewed a pot of coffee with my little man on the boob! I feel pretty accomplished ...
  • I think having a baby has softened my old curmudgeonly ways.  I'm not sure this is a good thing.

    MH made a comment about me not having anything to do today and made me mad. I think  I will do nothing today since he thinks that's what I am doing anyway.

  • I can't get the thaw/refrigerate/freeze "rules" straight for BM and I'm always afraid I did the wrong thing and LO will get really sick.

  • I still get so bitter about not being able to BF due to uber-low supply.  Especially when I leak and wake up with a wet tank top.  Such a freaking tease. :/

    I confess that I regret my c-section. I don't think I'll ever not regret it. I went into labor early and should have just VBAC'd.

  • I've been cleared for sex but have been engaging in alternate activities with H since I'm TERRIFIED of getting pg again. I've got a script for the mini pill but I don't think I'll feel "safe" until he gets his vasectomy (which hasn't been booked yet).

  • I have many :D

    I still eat like I'm pregnant. These cravings have GOT. TO. GO!

    I share binkies between my girls and also use my mouth to "clean" them when I drop them. I figured people in Sweden do it and they have super healthy kids. My girls have yet to be sick at 3mo old.

    The cleaning ladies were originally only here because I was on bedrest for 4 months. They're still here 3 months pp.

    If given the choice to vbac, I might opt for the c section again. The c section was just too easy for me :D

  • I can't wait to go back to work.

    I work 100 yards from home and my husband will be home all summer with the kids. It'll be the perfect combination of family time and GTFO of the house time.

    me too! I was disappointed that I haven't lost more weight, but I haven't changed the way I am eating so ... Duh

  • After DD1 was born, I was itching to get back to work after 2 months off.  She was not an easy baby and I had a hard time transitioning to motherhood.  I have sworn up & down that I'd never want to be a SAHM, I find a lot of self-worth in doing things outside the house and really enjoy my career.  But something after DD2 was born makes me really sad to think about going back to work and I really, really wish I was able to take more time off to be home with DD2.  Realistically, I probably would drive myself crazy taking care of both kids at home all day (thankfully my rambunctious toddler has remained in daycare while I'm on leave), but DD2 has been such  good baby so far and she's also likely our last that I just want to hold onto this time together as long as possible.

  • When I dropped my kids off at daycare for the first time a few weeks ago, I didn't feel a single ounce of guilt. It has been amazing to be back at work, and around other adults! And truthfully, I think DD was happy to be away from me for the day as well. She has been in such a great mood since she's been back on her old routine:-)
  • I am ridiculously excited about getting a haircut this morning. Not only do I get out of the house without LO but its for something fun (not a dr appt or grocery shopping).
  • I will never forgive myself for getting an epidural. I have dull pain in that spot on my spine...and it's a reminder about my weakness every.single.day.

    (I know it's flame free...but what others choose to do is fine with me.  I'm mad at myself)

    Good for you!  I'm trying to figure out how to fit this into the budget...even just once a week.  I love to clean and my H will be staying at home, but I feel like some of our time can be spent NOT on cleaning.  The laundry and dishes are NEVER ending!!

  • I have to go into work today to pack my classroom since they are re-carpeting the school.  DH wants to come with me and help...but I just wish he'd stay home with the kids instead.  I'm dreading having to do all this work with two kids in tow.  Truthfully, I think DH is terrified to be home alone with both of them.  Sigh...

  • When we get back from our visit with my parents I am setting up major boundaries with MIL.  She has been a complete nightmare during this visit.  She has been calling us several times a day since we left two weeks ago, and finally crossed the line and called my mom last night to make sure we hadn't worn out our welcome, and she was missing her baby and maybe my mom wanted to relax without the stress of having to entertain us.  I didn't realize we needed to be entertained.  I have been day dreaming about extending our trip or moving closer to my parents.

    I have done zero yard work so far this summer. I think I am going to skip even putting flower pots on our front step. I may get out and pull some weeds and cut back stuff from last winter. We'll see. I could pretty much care less about my yard this year.

    I bought geraniums that were already planted in a pot. My mom visited last weekend and I put her to work weeding. That's all that's been done.

    We do it once a month and it is so nice! Between the weeks we give our house what I like to call a "bird bath" cleaning haha

  • Anna still isn't crazy about bottles but we try from time to time.  I thawed some breastmilk for her last night but she wouldn't take it, then James asked if he could have some so I poured it into a sippy.  My h was sort of weirded out, I was just happy I didn't have to pour 2.5 oz of milk down the drain.

  • I don't pump. I was lent an electric pump from a family friend, but my boobs are so huge that I can't get good suction and nothing comes out.

    Honestly, manual expression is way easier for me...

    I totally plan on doing this if I ever have extra milk.

  • DD and I went to go visit my coworker in the hospital yesterday. I knew it would be quick so I left the diaper bag in my car. Baby pooped while coworker was holding her so I told her I'd just change the diaper when I got back to the car and then we left. I strapped DD in her carseat to carry her back to the parking lot but when I got to the car I didn't feel like unstrapping her and restrapping her so I just put the carseat in the car and waited out the 15 min drive home to change her diaper.

     I burnt dinner and then I went to the drive thru at chic fil a and when I got home my food was cold so I cried.

    This exactly! I've done it a couple times as well.  Dumping expressed milk makes me sad.  When my milk first came in and I was overly engorged, I really considered putting the two year old on the b00b to empty them :)

  • It's almost 90 degrees here today and we don't have air conditioning. I don't mind, though, because the heat is making the baby and the dog sleepier than usual, so it is nice and quiet at home today.
