In the words of my aunt after her pilot husband retired, "How can I miss you if you won't go away?!"
My FFFC I’m so excited for this weekend because it means some time off from H. I’m going to a concert tonight with my SIL, hair-did tomorrow morning, H is going the the Bruins game on Sat and helping a friend move in Sunday. I love that man be her NEVER leaves the house. Even though the kids will be home I will still have some space. I’m glad he doesn’t have to deploy anymore and being shot at was never what I wanted for him but damn if I don’t miss some of the “me” time that army life gave me. He was special ops so was never gone for more than 4 months at a time and would be home for maybe a month between deployments and training but I kind of thrived having that time to myself, when it got too hard he would be home soon and when he got clingy he was out the door soon anyway. I know it sounds horrible but there is almost nothing better than being alone in my house.
I am happy to see this mommy makeover discussion. We'll see how things turn out by the time I'm done having kids but I told myself for years that when I'm done having kids and BFing, I'm getting a boob job. And while they're there, they may as well do some work on the stomach. My body likes to put weight around my stomach and it would look a hell of a lot better if I had boobs to balance it out. I may change my mind by then but while I don't think women should be shamed into getting work done, I don't think they should be shamed for getting work done. If it makes you feel better and more confident, awesome. ETA: My confession is that I was supposed to get the dog booked for his upcoming stay at the Howliday Inn. He always likes to book super early and had been nagging. He asked me one day and I couldn't handle his reaction if I told him I forgot (he's so unfamiliar with the office environment he doesn't see how I can get busy and totally forget). So I told him I had.
I'm totally on board with the mommy make over-I'm planning on getting a boob lift after I'm done BFing this last one because I have noticed a difference in my pre-kids boobs and my post-kids boobs.
I'm also completely agreeing with everyone needing space from their spouses. DH works nights so we don't really see each other much. He watches the kids at home in the morning, drops them off at my mom's in the afternoon and then goes home and goes to sleep so when I get home from work with the kids he's sleeping. I only get to see him for about 30 mins at night when I wake him up for work as he's getting ready and in the morning I see him for about an hour after he gets home as I'm getting ready for work and DD ready for school. His days off are Wednesday and Thursday (mine are weekends) so he stays awake during the day so he can be on the same schedule as us and I really enjoy seeing him more but I'm normally happy on Friday's because after I put the kids to bed and get him out the door I can eat crap in bed and watch what TV I want to (I love Hoarders and have about 20 episodes DVR'd) that he complains about. Me time is a must!
My actual FFFC is that this morning I was waiting in the Dr's office waiting room and scrolling through FB and I watched this heart wrenching video about a daughter asking her dad how much he made an hour, asked him to borrow some money, and then gave him the money to "buy an hour" of his time and asked him to come home early. I started crying (tears rolling down cheeks) around the time she asked him to borrow money, I couldn't help myself. I felt pretty silly crying over a FB video in the middle of a Dr's office but, hormones.
@cford08 @chasingroygbiv I’m a 36f/g, and I’m super scared at how big and scary these puppies are going to get while breastfeeding.
