FFFC — The Bump
April 2013 Moms

Re: FFFC

  • For MIL's 70th and FIL's 75th birthdays next month, the whole fam-damily is going on a Disney cruise (MIL's choice) My confession- I'm dreading traveling with and staying in cabins with a 3 year old and 1 year old. Also, what if they get seasick? H has a tendency towards seasickness which MIL has apparently forgotten. Confession part two: we are even taking a babysitter so I feel like even more of a brat for not being super excited. I mean, I know it will (hopefully) be fun for the kids but I'm anticipating meltdowns and exhaustion all around.

    @chicagobroad26 talk to me about taking a sitter on vacation...  Are you paying them or just paying for them to go on vacation?  I assume they'll be sleeping in a different cabin than you?  We've talked about doing this but cannot figure out the logistics.

    Yep, she has a separate cabin. Obviously we are paying for her trip plus a daily rate (much reduced from her usually hourly rate).

    And I am so mad at myself for a proof reading fail. I ordered a Stich Fix a million years ago for first available delivery date (yesterday). I used my business address since I don't like boxes left unattended on our front step all day... Except I put in our home zip code. Doh. So FedEx shuffled it between stations and it didn't get delivered yet. Sadsies.

  • My friends have a 2 year old who still takes a bottle. I confess I judged, a lot. And now I'm realizing my almost 15 month has no interest in giving up her bottle. Ugh.

  • My confession is I am jealous of @ChicagoBroad26‌ cruise and wishes she would take me instead of the babysitter. I would work for free.

    Ack! I know I'm a brat. To be fair...the last time we took Ava on a flight she literally (and I mean literally) threw a five hour tantrum.

  • I'm going to a bachelorette pool party tomorrow and will be wearing a monokini. Well I wore a corset today under my blouse in the hopes that i'll lose even a little of this belly fat. I don't want look like a bag of cats fighting to break out the spandex so i'm desperate.

    I decided I wasn't going to go to my own cousin's wedding last week! Paying $800 per ticket to take a 5 hour flight to Iowa and stay in a hotel room with all three kids sounded like the worst thing I could think of. So I said we were so sorry but just couldn't afford it even though we could. I'm so selfish!

    You're not selfish, you're sensible. :)

  • So at a pool party a few weeks ago my close friend told me she is still nursing her 2 1/2 year old daughter. That it is mostly at bedtime. My confession is that I think that's too old and I was a little judgey!

  • I love tater tot hotdish. And tater tots in any form really.

    Also, it purposely put Will to bed an hour and a half later than normal, knowing full well how much wine I would drink tonight. Hopefully he will sleep in now.

  • One of my molars that I cracked started hurting this entire week. Tonight it has been so bad that I made an appointment online so I probably won't hear from them until Monday, my confession is that I honestly contemplated doing what Tom Hanks did to his tooth in Cast Away.

    ALWAYS backfires in this household as well -- am now a confirmed believer that "sleep begets sleep" and the quicker I get him to bet at the first sign of being tired, the better he sleeps.
