Because they wouldn't complain about it.
Today is the third morning I've forgotten to put my cup under the coffee before the coffee came out.
Goodness no one sleeps around here! Austin decided it was a good idea to wake me up 5 times last night. Yes, Austin. Not Avery. I went to bed at 10pm. At 12am he had to pee. At 2am he supposedly had to pee again. At 4am he didn't want to go back to bed. At 5am he wasn't tired anymore. At 5:45am he was really upset and so was I, but I got him back in bed. Avery came in to nurse at 6:20am and that was it.
Katie, beautiful words. Thank you for posting them for Amanda to remember her value and what she deserves.
Abra & Sara, do I need to split you two up? Oh, and Sara, it helps to put the cup under the coffee maker so when the coffee comes out it's in your cup.
Nicole, yay for an awesome nurser and your milk coming in! I hated when people suggested my baby was hungry, too. So annoying. And I would have been livid if my child was taken away from me for 3 hours. WTH?!
Joanie, yeah, taking those extra classes to round out a bachelors can feel really wasteful and especially now that you already have a job in your field. But maybe all that knowledge will come in handy when you're on Jeopardy or playing Trivial Pursuit.
I was so confused about my major that I took 27 hours worth of classes that didn't even count. I am awesome at Jeopardy.
Sorry for the rough night, Jaimee. Look... I did good today! I told one of my friends. Only because I was asking her to watch dd2 while H moves out on Fri. But it's a start!
Sara, if you wipe them off on your shirt, you can still eat them.
Good for you, Amanda! I'm glad you're getting some help.
Sara, Illinois law:
Children should remain in a rear-facing safety seat until age 2, or until they are at the upper height or weight limit of the seat. When a child out- grows a rear-facing safety seat, he or she may transition to a forward-facing seat with a harness system.
Car seats make me mad. B hit the RF weight limit on her seat. My DH kindly pointed it out 3 days ago. Which, I have to say, is my fault. I didn't even consider weight when we bought it because she was the tiniest for SO long. Its not even something I looked for. So now she is super fat. And not 2. And I find this issue very conflicting, because I don't exactly have the few hundred I need in my budget for a new seat.
I don't ever wake up at 4:30am.. I have the opposite issue where I never actually want to get out of bed. We sleep a lot around here.
My carseats RF until 40lbs and 45lbs. I think we paid about $70 for our newer seat the RF's until 40lbs, so it wasn't terrible. I also have a Radian carseat, which is heavy, but it fits nicely in smaller cars.
Sara, I poured you a cup of coffee over here with a big thick slice of velveeta for breakfast. You had better hurry up, it's getting cold.
Just because I always like to be the winner.. We get discount low-income electricity here in CA, we keep our a/c on 82 degrees, and our last bill was $350! Many people have $500-$600 electric bills here in the summer.
Amanda, Cashing out your 401k is generally dumb, but we're also considering it in the future to buy property, sooo... I'm glad things went well with your friend..
Nicole, Welcome to normal newborn sleep deprivation! :) It seems odd that Layla would have moved from LOA to posterior, are they sure she was LOA before? The cord wrapped around the body is normal and happens in something like 25% of births..
