+++ Confession Friday +++

What do you have?

 

Confession:  I'm vaguely curious as to why the bump did not convert to a new format (as promised) over the fourth of July as promised, but way too flucking lazy to look for old posts that explain it. 

The word you're looking for is SEX.  I promise.  No, it's not gender.  It's sex.  You're welcome.

    They did for a few hours. There were too many glitches so they reverted to the old - I think they are still planning on converting to the new format. Not sure if there is an ETA yet.

    Where have you been, Babs? How is the SAH routine going for you?

    My confession is that I am already over breast feeding. I enjoyed it with my son as a bonding experience, but this time it feels more like a burden. Especially pumping. I'm hoping I make it to a year with DD like I did with DS to keep things even, but we'll see. Mostly I'll probably continue because I'm cheap and BM is free.

  • I never thought I would be the type to breast feed in public.  Never minded when others did it but didn't think it would be for me.  Well I was out the other day I was out and baby needed to eat.  I was trying to keep a blanket over her head/my boob but I am in the NE and it was 95 degrees...baby was overheating/red face/sweating.  I finally just removed the blanket and had my giant boob out for all the parents and children to see and I could have cared less.  I'm convinced I was someone's FB status;)

    I'm a firm believer in the benefits of BFing but the only reason I still am is because I can't imagine adding formula into our budget.

  • DH and I are having our marriage blessed and DS baptized tomorrow and I waited until today to let my father know in hopes that he'll have other plans. We don't get along, but I can't invite my MeMe and not him. Definitely don't feel like making that call, so I believe he will be getting a text invite.

    I don't understand how something they worked and planned on for so long was SO broken that they couldn't do a few tweaks. I liked the format and LOVED how easily I could upload mobile photos. I also loved the crazy smilies and was excited to see some of them used in response to dumb, annoying, debating posts.

    ETA. I always wih I had a good confession or UO but when the days rolls around I draw a complete blank.

    My job asked me to work a graveyard shift last night, I told DH I wanted the extra money so I would work the shift. The only reason I said yes is because I want DH to finally see how freaking exhausting it is getting up with DD all night. I swear she is starting the 4 month wakeful early. He was up with her 4 times last night between 8-4. 

    I guess my confession is I don't feel guilty.... Like at all.  Karma is getting back at me though because I now can't sleep. Screw you karma.

  • After 2hrs of trying to get DD to sleep I went to put her down in her crib and realized she was wet.
    I let her sleep all night in that wet diaper. It was NOT worth waking her and I figured that if it really bothered her, she would wake and let me know.

    Then I felt like mom of the year when I realized...maybe that's why she had such a rough time getting to sleep. face palm

    Agreed.  Our finances are tight right now, and we could swing formula if we needed to, I'm just tired of nothing fitting right and looking bigger than I am because of these huge boobs!

    I guess my confession would be that I breastfeed AND plow through several glasses of wine :) 

    I feed her  as she falls asleep for the night around 8, wait fifteen minutes to make sure she's really out, and then enjoy my wine! By the time she's hungry again around 4am, it's completely out of my system.

  • I've been  seriously considering limiting the amount of exposure MIL has to DD.  She doesn't seem to understand that we will try to EBF until 12 months and won't introduce solids until 6 mo.  Yesterday she kept asking about what types of formula I was going to use, and what brand of baby food.  I don't like the constant competition she seems to think she has with my parents.  She lives closer, that means she wins as to who sees the kid more!  She also calls on a daily basis to see if we want to hang out in her AC.  I know she just wants to see DD, but then ask, don't play games.

  • I cut my lifting session short cause I was too tired to wait for the guys at the squat rack get done clucking away like a bunch of hens. I did my full cardio afterwards though, but can't help to think I didn't do much.

    Babs is typically a nickname for Barbara (Barbara Streisand, Barbara Walters both come to mind). 

    I'd assume that Babs is female. And if she mentions that her partner BFs Sully, have you considered that she may be partnered with another woman? 

    (PSA: I don't know this for certain, but, seriously? ... )

    this is not a confession. And it is a silly question. If you were confused, phone a friend or message her directly. IMO it isn't something you would call out to the boards. Regardless, consider all the options... Starting with the fact that two women can make great parents.

    Alright, I have gone over this in my head with every possible reason as to why RM would ask this and the only one that makes any sense is to cause drama. Why would you ask this on the FFFC and as a new post?

    Okay you guys, I am going to play the devil's advocate. Seeing her posts a lot leads me to believe she is very conservative (correct me if I am wrong), but I honestly think she would not think of the above post at all beforehand.

    I do agree though, if you are confused about things like that, best to just message the user in question and ask yourself, not embarrass both yourself and the other person.
