I hope you had a great weekend. I know mine was a little subpar. Why? Sick husband +Infant baby + Arctic temps = Irritable Mom
I’m hoping this week is much better although I’m a little skeptical since my maternity leave is up this week! Womp womp!
With that in the air, let me just run down my 10 WTF Moments that happened this last week:
#1 Can I live? Nope! When hubby is sick, so is my support system. I’ve grown so accustomed to my mommy time and my mommy breaks that when I couldn’t have them this week I lost my freaking mind. Who said mommy’s don’t need a break? I’m not superwoman, and I can’t do everything. I wish I could, but I’m only human. I needed someone to put on a cape and come save me. I was exhausted this week!!!!!!!!! So now that he’s feeling better, guess who is on daddy duty around the clock? That guy!!! I’ve been spit on, drooled on, vomited on, slept on, and peed on all in one week by my precious baby. Mommy needs a break before I Lose My Shit as a New Parent.
#2 Do I have a velcro baby? I read this article by Coffee and Crumbs and had to question whether or not P was indeed a velcro baby? After many 3 am ponderings with her snuggled up on my chest asleep, I concluded that she wasn’t completely a velcro baby. It’s only at night. For some reason, P only falls asleep on my chest. Try to put her in the bassinet and all hell breaks loose. My baby is spoiled. Oh well! BTW…she’s so disrespectful. She wants to party from 3 am – 6 am. Doesn’t she know that mommy needs some rest too? But as they say, it will get better.
#3 Speaking of P, she kinda digs her bouncer, and I’m kinda glad. Indeed she won’t stay in it too long, but when she does, mommy breaks out in a praise dance. I can’t wait to see how much she enjoys her new Graco Oasis Swing that I just bought. FYI….she loves for me to read Dada by Jimmy Fallon and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You Say. And why do I need all these fancy toys? She can stare at the ceiling fan for minutes upon minutes entertaining herself. LOL!
#4 Why oh why did I binge watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians? I instantly felt like I lost millions and millions of my brain cells. I also binge watched the blahness that is Growing Up Hip Hop and the awesomeness that is The Affair. Oh, and I’m binge watching Angie Tribeca as I write this! TV definitely rots my brain! Lol!
#5 Argh! In my head I had my meal all planned out. I was going to have spaghetti, chicken, and vegetables. BUT…. I went to cook my chicken and it was bad. Do you know that I had to start all over because of that? I was so distraught and didn’t end up eating until. 1. Perfect way to end my week. LOL!
Oh well there is always next time……
