I’m making Jen fix dinner tonight, boxed mac and cheese. It’s high time she learn how to follow basic instructions like how to boil water for something other than ramen or tea 😂

After the 4th question I told her she wasn’t allowed to ask me anything else and to read the box and do her best.

I won’t be winning any mom of the year awards but that’s ok. She seems to be doing alright in there by herself.

In the spirit of doing things backwards


  • I fell in love with a ring and the jewelers were having a big sale today. The ring I wanted was way more than I would ever want to pay for a ring and I knew the only way to do it was to go in there and haggle them down for him. We got $2600 off the ring and a free lifetime warranty. The catch is… I handed over the ring to my partner and I have to wait for an official proposal!

4 weeks old. Weighed in at 14lbs 10oz by the midwife this morning. Caught the last hour of baby group, after that - about 6 other babies this time. They all look about the same size, but all had better head control than my wee fellow and some were working on sitting already. Just came home to baby’s first successful wrap nap transfer into the bed. 🎉💕😄

Not even 830 and my day has been crappy for hours already.

Didn’t sleep cause I got something lodge into my gums, and it hurts so bad and I can’t get it out. Woke up with a migraine. Richard used my towel. He didn’t take out the garbage, so now I have to wait two weeks for garbage day again, the bin is completely full, so I’m not sure where I’ll be putting garbage for two weeks….

Thea screams (not cries) whenever I’m not holding her and she’s awake (and she won’t nap unless she’s in my arms)

Rich unloaded the dishwasher, and whenever he doesn’t know where something goes he leaves it on the counter..counters are covered in stuff he “didn’t know” where it went. Which is dumb cause it’s obvious where it goes, and it’s also obvious how lazy he is.

But I got to shower for the first time in three days, so yeah there’s my rainbow.

Halloween spider webbing could 100% be used as torture…

Get that shit wrapped around you and you’re swatting like a crazy person walking in circles on your driveway trying to get it off for so long.

Not that it happened to me or anything….

I love Target.

Target has their baby sale this week where you spend $250 and get a $50 giftcard. The double stroller we planned on buying is $200, but timing was on our side and during this sale Graco is 20% off. We also had our 15% off baby registry coupon. So we got the stroller, 3 packs of diapers, bath items for both babies, all new bottles, and a baby monitor for the price of the stroller.
