Journey in D Minor

Teething baby while DH out of town, mama is sick and can’t take anything because it will tank milk production.

It’s a rough week.

When you’re stuck on the couch holding a teething baby because he won’t sleep anywhere else, and you’re neglecting your housework because you can’t move, don’t watch Hoarders. Just don’t.

It will make you question every decision you’ve made since the last time you cleaned your house.

Watch something that makes you feel better about yourself and your parenting, like Dance Moms or Toddlers and Tiaras.

I forgot to mention.

W has two teeth! They came in last weekend. He doesn’t let me look at them long enough to take a pic right now, but I will try. I love to see him smile with teeth!

Happy Easter!

Random Things

I ordered the next size in prefolds and a few OS covers. I wasn’t sure I needed to until I tried to use a Snappi and could barely fasten it. Oops!

W is in 9 month pants. That’s nuts.

The eczema continues to improve. I want a milkshake, but I can wait.

I’m pumping over 3oz per day now!

I went to buy some underthings to wear under a bridesmaid dress for June. Wow, what a sobering experience. I am not small. I have to order what I need, because I can’t find it in the store.

I bought a wallet. Like a pocket wallet. I always carry a diaper bag, and don’t want to deal with a purse.

I don’t get much done anymore because he will only nap on me right now.

Flood Control

The creek behind my house floods every time it rains. The city finally decided to fix it when a dozen houses had their first floors flood last year after a 3 inch rain. Today, they’re out there with bulldozers and chainsaws. It’s so loud! I’m glad they’re fixing it, but wow. I need to do laundry to drown out the noise.

First Time Away

We left William with my dad while we went to a soccer game last night. At first, I felt naked. Imagine the feeling that you left the stove on and multiply it by 10. Eventually, I tried to put it out of my mind and managed to have a good time. I’m glad we went. William was well-behaved while we were gone, which makes it easier. He loves his grandpa best other than us, and I guess everyone had a good time. Yay!
