Little Milestones

(Oh, gentle reader, if you are a hard core CIO parent or if your kids have really, truly never slept in your bed and co-sleepers make you crazy – I beg you – please go read the archives today – because this post will totally make you itch and you’ll hurt yourself rolling your eyes, and I don’t want you to hurt yourself. This is all about me wanting to take care of you – clearly not at all about me not wanting you to think I’m a dingbat.)

Okay, so it’s just us now? Here we go.

I had one rule before Alex was born – This kid isn’t sleeping in our bed.

And he didn’t. For 8 weeks. Because one of us slept on the couch with him. Every night until we moved cross country.

The mommy thing

Postado por in English | 0 Commenti

This week I had an email from a friend. I liked my answer and since I’m pressed for time and words and ideas, I clearly decided to make it a blog post.


So, tell me with 100% honesty… What do you think of the Mommy thing? I am afraid that maybe I am only good at the “your my kids for no more than a few hours or a few days” gig. I am wondering if I really want to put in an additional 20+ years into this torture they call parenting.

Since our tolerance level is similar, what do you think?

Oh irony!

So yesterday I spazzed over not getting to read people, and ya’ll assured me that I was still loved and to pull my head out of my ass and stuff like that.

Irony is that yesterday, I was 3 hits away from my best day ever on the blog – traffic wise. Which I think I just really, really funny.

PPD Watch – day two – much better – the sleep was a big help (I love my Scout). I had a preplanned date to meet up with some mom’s for coffee so that was good (they have nonsleeping kids too – so I don’t have to feel bad if I take a grizzly kid). I stepped on the scale and had lost another pound. I was trying on clothes to see what fit and virtually all of my prepregnancy pants fit again. (Don’t ask about the shirts – nursing, remember?) So, day two of the watch was an improvement – I had energy to work on some stuff so that’s a good sign. I’ll see how it goes the rest of the week.
