Re: February Randoms

  • @zuuls_mom a DATE?!?!? what's that  ;)  I can count on one... no- two- fingers the number of times DH and I have been on a date since DS was born.  Almost 17 month ago...  Are you doing dinner/movie/something else cool?  Have so much fun!!

    We have no plans.  I really wish winter was over so we could spend more time outside.  This winter has been so weird with snow, then it all melting right away, so our lawn and all the playgrounds are a soggy disaster.
  • @zuuls_mom@RedBreast35 We just literally went on our second “date” since DS was born...21mo ago, LOL!! Day dates count, right?!?! We half thought about going to the movies after lunch...which we haven’t been to since before DS was born, LOL! Also, just now realizing that DS is gonna be 2 SO SOON!!! WHERE DID MY BABY GO?!?!?

    We don’t have too much going on this weekend - brunch with my IL’s to celebrate  DH’s birthday (yesterday).

  • @RedBreast35, @lillywonderland the reason I am so excited is because it will be our fourth date night in nearly 2.5 years lol. We are going to The Melting Pot so it'll be very date like! Nice leisurely meal with a delicious hand crafted mocktail! :)

  • I am going to Costco. I am not even kidding, it's my favorite place in the whole wide world (I love a bargain). 

    We will prob also take our kids to the natural history museums. They love dinosaurs. 

    To echo someone else: date night? what is that? I can only confess this here but both of my kids still sleep in our bed...it started out of necessity because of nursing and going back to work and they basically never left. The other night, the kids fell asleep early and dh and I got a chance to talk. I literally said to him "oh, now I know why I married you." I hadn't just talked to him in SO LONG.

  • @zuuls_mom Enjoy your date!!! Yum! 

    @rms924 I've been wondering about this for awhile: Do you have to go to bed when your kids do when you're co-sleeping? If not, how to you keep them from falling out of bed?

    We're heading to San Diego for a week tomorrow! :) Sunshine, zoo and fun here we come! :)
  • @zuuls_mom that’s exciting! Doing anything special for your date? My husband and I need a date night badly!! We have a small family reunion tomorrow and that’s about it. Pretty low key weekend. 
  • @septoctkids we're doing a fancy dinner out at a fondue place! I can't freaking wait.

  • @zuuls_mom fun! We have a fondue place downtown and now I'm craving it. Maybe I can convince DH :)
  • @zuuls_mom that sounds amazing! Enjoy!! 
  • @mamaber2204 we co sleep and use a floor bed. DH built a frame to allow some airflow underneath but no harm no foul for any unexpected trips out of the bed.
  • @zuuls_mom FONDUE IS SO GOOD!! DH was unimpressed at the idea of melt-y cheese as a meal until I convinced him to try it when we were in Switzerland. He still talks about it to this day...and somehow he thinks he’s the one who had the idea to order it. 🤨🤔 
  • Cheese fondue is good, but chocolate fondue is better 😍 IMHO. Make sure you do the whole bit! 
  • @blitzybee it’s a four course extravaganza! Cheese, salad, meat and then chocolate!

  • @zuuls_mom dang! You planned that right! 
  • @zuuls_mom mmm fondue is so delicious! Have the best time tonight!
    @RedBreast35 @lillywonderland I’m trying to convince H that we need to make the most of being childless and go do tons of things before we’ll never have the time anymore. Do dates feel more special now that they happen less often for you?
    @mamaber2204 have so much fun in San Diego. Sounds like a great trip!

    We’re heading out to the far flung suburbs for a birthday party. DH has a huge extended family on his mom’s side and they’re celebrating 2 people’s birthdays. All his family is really nice and fun to be around. It’s going to be hard not telling them, but he says no way can they all know before his parents find out. 
  • @themadcamel I think dates are more special now. It feels like more quality time and you just savor it more.

  • @mamaber2204 dh and I are usually passed out by 9:30 because we get very tired! We all go upstairs at 730 and start the bedtime antics. Typically, we wake before the kids and they are all over the place. It’s insane. Each of them have a bedroom (that sits completely unused). Such waste. 

    For the record, this happened because I was nursing and back at work. Brought one into the bed, then the other and they haven’t left! So, it’s not because we wanted to co sleep or thought it best - it was about survival.  We are a mess and I’m sure a sleep consultant would have a field day! 

    Since this is a randoms thread: dh and I just got back from  er w one of my boys. Some kid literally bashed my son’s head in at the gym daycare this morning. He was covered in blood and the dr thought he might need a staple. know that stuff happens but I freaked out : there were entirely too many kids there for everyone to be safe. Ugh!!

  • @rms924 Eep! I hope YS is taking it like a champ! I smashed my head as a kid and needed stitches. It was quite memorable (and I turned out okay 😉). 

    @themadcamel Yes, dates are more special now, but tbh we spent most of the time talking about our son (or the one currently baking in my oven). It’s so hard not to talk about your little ones!!! I often wonder wtf we used to talk about when we were all alone before kids...LOL!! 🤣
  • @zuuls_mom I loooove the Melting Pot! Have so much fun! I keep wanting cake batter ice cream from Coldstone, and since they charge you like they're selling nuggets of gold, I decided to make my own today and it is DELICIOUS!

    Now that I'm fondue inspired, I'm wanting cheeseburgers and cheese fondue for dinner tonight. That makes sense, right?!?!?

  • I feel like I’ve been craving any and every sweet thing. I thought it was weird because I didn’t have ANY cravings with DS. I know every PG is different...blah blah blah. Then I realized I have been watching a buttload of The Great British Baking Show...pretty sure that’s the reason why I’ve been on the sweet train lately!! 🤣😜
  • I'm reading all the fun date night stories but to be perfectly honest, anyone else struggling to peel themselves from the couch still? My idea of a perfect date in sitting on the couch with DH and fur babies, eating pizza and watching a movie  :D 
  • @nomangos23 I feel ya. I can feel my energy coming back, but I mostly just want to lounge around. That is all we did this weekend. We binge watched The Umbrella Academy and snuggled with the pup. I have all week off work though, so I need to make myself be slightly productive lol.
  • Did anyone else see that commercial during the Oscars with that iPhone ultrasound plug-in thing? I am never going to buy it, but that doesn't mean I didn't spend a good 15 minutes trying to find it lol.
  • @nomangos23 that sounds like an awesome date night to me! That's what we usually do. I like going out every once in a while, but we are definitely homebodies.

  • So I just tried to call and schedule an appointment to get my teeth cleaned. It's been a while since I've had x-rays and I'm due for them. When I mentioned that I'm pregnant the lady said since I can't get x-rays I wouldn't be able to get my teeth cleaned since the x-rays are needed for a full comprehensive exam. She said I have to wait till the baby is born before they will see me... Are you F-ing kidding me!? Has anyone else dealt with this before? I'm thinking about calling a different place cause this just seems ridiculous to me.

  • @LJMoon6 uhhh that does not sound right. I was just at my dentist and they were like - okay we'll update x-rays when you aren't preg.

    little girl A born 3.26.20

  • @LJMoon6 Yeah, exactly what @chichiphin said. Call back and complain. That seems ridiculous. They cleaned my teeth when I was PG with DS (but did no x-rays). I have an appt this week so I just won’t be getting the x-rays. 
  •  @LJMoon6 I had my teeth cleaned at 6 weeks and they put off x-rays (I was due for them) - with DS I had my teeth cleaned twice and they postponed the x-rays both times. I would definitely call them back, and call somewhere different if they're still saying the same thing.
  • @LJMoon6 that is definitely just them. I have friends that insist on limited x-rays even when not pregnant with no problem.
  • @LJMoon6 that’s odd. I had a cleaning, just no xrays while pregnant. I didn’t tell them I was pregnant til I was there though. How many weeks are you? Your next appointment in 6 months would probably be around when the baby is due anyway so you be ready for another cleaning and can get X-rays then. I’d call and insist they still schedule you a cleaning. Side note.. my gums bled a ton when I was pregnant when I got a cleaning with my ds. They never bleed during cleanings any other time. The hygienist knew I was pregnant before I even told her because of it! Crazy lol
  • @chichiphin @lillywonderland @ternsetc @janat1717 @septoctkids Thanks for making me feel less crazy lol. I thought I was just being emotional when she told me. It honestly makes no sense to me! I was even reading that pregnant women should have more teeth cleaning that normal. WTF. I basically hung up on her when she told me to come back when the baby is born. Um, no thanks. I’ll be taking my business somewhere else. I’m a little worried a new place won’t take on a new patient with no recent x-rays just for a cleaning. But I guess I could always try to go back to my childhood dentist. Ugh, what a pain!

  • @LJMoon6 if you tell them your regular place is refusing to clean your teeth I don't see how a dentist would refuse to give you a cleaning. Dentists wait on cavities some and will do cleanings even when you are them. Really bad stuff would be obvious to a dentist just looking. Good luck with your search. Maybe a woman with kids? We have a local mom/dentist that is a fav with families around here and super gets pregnancy concerns.
  • @lillywonderland is the 3-welled pan a frying pan?  I'm trying to picture it and failing... 
  • @RedBreast35 Yes! Pic in spoiler. I’m so excited for it!


  • @lillywonderland I like it!!  New kitchenware and gadgets are so much fun!! 
  • @lillywonderland I love getting new kitchen stuff! We just got our air fryer yesterday and christened it with Mozzarella Sticks. My life has been forever changed!
