    I think I now know what families are feeling when they come to the funeral home and tell us they feel strangely guilty to be relieved that everything is over after they've cared for a loved one for a long time.

    At no point did I get too excited about this pregnancy because I just instinctually didn't think it was going to last.  Although I'm devastated, I'm also just glad to have some finality to all of this and know for sure how it's going to end.

    I don't "get" Attachment Parenting. The Dr. Sears' 6 principles seem like common sense to me. I don't disagree with any of them and I can't imagine any decent parent disagreeing with them. But I'm not really into baby wearing and my baby has slept in his crib since 3 weeks old, so I guess I'm not down with the AP? ::sigh::

    XP from 12-24: Every day when I go to check the mail, I hope there's some big check from a relative in there to help us out. Never happens. But every single freaking day, I make the trek to my mailbox, just hoping.

    Sigh.

    I do the same thing...I mean we are doing ok but Eli's elecare cost is eating up our extra money.

    The first Buy Buy Baby in MN opens today about 5 minutes from my house.  I am ridiculously excited.  There is no way the store could live up to my level of excitement.  I worked for Bed Bath and Beyond all through college and I'm excited to support the company instead of BRU.

    After all the lay offs and BS that's been going on here, they are having a luncheon today and want to do a secret santa. I don't care if I look like a grinch, I am not participating with a bunch of fake people.

    I got AF today. Sometimes I secretly wish I didn't get it. Wink

    I don't get why people say oh, let me know what you need help with? And then I say something...and they shut up. Then why do you ask.

    I don't hate that show "Whitney."  I know it is godawful, and the laugh track is painful, but I will admit that I watch it almost every week because I am already watching The Office...I just don't change the channel.  

    We did that last night I lost the remote and no one wanted to get up to change the channel.

    I keep seeing references to this show and I thought, at first, it was about Whitney Houston and would be some God-given Christmas Holiday Present from 6lb 7oz Baby Jesus and just as wonderful as the Whitney Houston/Bobby Brown show from back in the day.

    Yes Me too! But I'm not really into the whole grungy-guy-is-hot phenom.

    I was in the same boat, wasn't really intending to watch it. I have to admit I laughed a couple of times. Even though it's awful, it wasn't awful. (I'm making a shiit ton of sense today. Geez.)

    I am really ticked off that DH's cousin switched to formula feeding her baby.  Not because I think formula is evil, but because I made her a nursing cover and now my awesome gift that I worked hard on is just going to waste.  Also part of me wants to ask for it back, I love the fabric I used and I want to save it for when I have a baby.

    You don't have to babywear or co-sleep/bed-share to be "AP".

    I guess I'm sort of "AP-Lite".

    But if you don't disagree with the principles, then what exactly don't you "get"?

    IDK if this is flammable, but I *almost* hope that our RE tests give us an open-and-shut diagnosis like MFI or POF so that we can just have an answer and move on. I can't believe I'm wishing for something like MFI, LOL.

    It is more of a theory than a practice. My baby has slept in her crib since 4 weeks old, and that doesn't mean I don't believe in AP theory. I do what works for me. AP is about responding to your baby's cues, and not basing what you do on a clock or a schedule or the notion of "spoiling." You'd be surprised by how many people disagree with the 6 principles and instead do what I just listed.

    **EDITED TO ADD* Doing those things, such as clock and schedule are not wrong IMO. They just don't work for us. Didn't want it to sound like i was judging those who are not AP because I don't.

    I don't think that's flammable...I totally get the notion that you want a definite answer.  Seems reasonable to me.

    I guess I don't get how those common sense principles form a way/style of parenting. Wouldn't everyone be an AP who wants a loving and nurturing environment for their baby?

    I'm considering cutting my maternity leave for #2 short because I'm worried about the effect it will have on my career. I am a bad mom.

    My mom and step dad are in the process of moving. They have a designer helping them and my mom is really excited. When I see pictures, I almost cringe because it's so not my taste and I wish I was the to help them. I know the designer is good and I by no means really know how to design a House, but it's so not my taste. It's not ugly or bad, just not my taste. My mom asks me if I like it, and I can not lie for the life of me. I tell her it's nice and tropical looking and skirt around the subject but I finally gave up and told her its just not my style. I also told her it doesn't make it bad looking, but I  know she is so flipping sensitive that if I don't like it, it hurts her feelings. Ugh. 

    Edited to add, I know this isn't flameful, I just had to get it out, and it's flammful in my family lol.

    I want to go on vacation now!  I am over everything else right now and have not had a vacation in over a year.  Yes, I know that sounds like whining.  I'm ready to go. 

    We want to move to the USVI.  We are on the same page and plan to sell out in a few years and go.  I don't know if I would actually be able to leave my parents or not.  Who know's where life will lead in a few years but the thought of not being able to drive an hour to see my Mom and Dad terrifies me. 

    Also, I am not really as excited about Christmas as I should be.  My family is a hot mess and the holidays always exacerbate the drama.

    I  have to cover another school at noon.  I lied saying I didn't have my car, because I didn't want to lose my spot.  I was hoping that someone else would cover, but instead they are sending a bus to pick me up.

    Also, this pisses me off because I wnated a personal day which got denied.  The person who denied me called out sick today.

    WTF?

    So, next week I was going to request a personal day, but I think instead I will take off 1 if not 2 days.

    F this!

    You're not a bad mom.  Had I carried this pregnancy to term, I was only going to be able to be on leave for 6 weeks due to the time of year and events we have scheduled at that time.  Sometimes doing what's best for your career is also what's best for your family.

    I belong to a FB group from one of my old jobs. The nurses are likely going to strike, just determining when. 

    My FFFC: The person who has organized the group, and is a leader for the cause, posts constantly. However, she doesn't use punctuation, capitalization, or maintain even a loose grasp of grammar and correct word usage. They're trying to disseminate information, but the effect of their communication is non-existent because they can't fvcking type or write effectively. I really want to post in the group and ask them to stop usng txt spk 'cuz i cnt ndrstnd uh muthafuckin thing thath thyr sayin.

    Professional group? My asss.

    All of this. We don't own a stroller or even the type of infant seat with a base (got the 5-60lb variety that stays in the car) so we are always holding her. And we were co-sleeping (baby in room) until she got a cold and really started struggling with reflux so now we bedshare 80% of the night. We all get much better sleep.
