I've caught myself giving a disappointed sigh when the baby stirs or I hear my 3yo coming to ask me one of his questions that he's asked a million times previously the same day.

The baby refuses a pacifier, and when he's screaming in the car and I can't pull over and he starts REALLY getting worked up, I sigh to myself, "Oh brother, here we go...." :

Cloth diapers temporarily went out the window weeks ago.

I sleep in the recliner chair almost on a regular basis. A few nights when I tried sleeping in bed, he spit up and I find it so disgusting that i just moved to the chair where he sits sort of reclined and rarely spits up. Which is where I was last night when I dropped him. :

He's used to me "sternly" talking to him about fussing. He gave me his first huge smile when, after he screamed all the way home from picking my husband up from work (about 5 mins away), I took him out, and he calmed right down, went into the house and picked him up and we looked face to face, and I ask him, "Izzy. Why on EARTH are you ALWAYS fussing!?" He looked at me and gave a huge smirk that gave way to a gigantic smile. Like he knew exactly what he was doing. I felt like I had just got punk'd.

He had his first bath in seven weeks since the hospital last night.

I'm REALLY resenting his issues with dairy right now. Geez, what in the world am I supposed to do with the 16 boxes of WIC Lactose Free milk I have in the fridge?

When he was first born, I thought his nose was weird, with the little yellowish whiteheads on it, and that it was sort of big and wide and look like a miniature image of my husban's nose. I thought it was weird how his fingernails curved over his fingers. He has two little bumps on his gums where his bottom two front teeth will be one day that were kinda weird. He has many of the weirdities and oddities that my husband has and I think, gosh, he didn't get that from me. : Including the very large frame, and the pounds he packs on, and my husband's giant feet.


I'm sure there is more, but I'm either too embarrassed to put it, or can't remember it all.

Oh! And sometimes if my kids are in pajamas and I gotta go somewhere, I just throw coats over them and go, especially the baby who hates, nay, DETESTS being dressed.

Ok, so those of you who nurse/hold/whatever on the toilet, how do you wipe/pull up your pants/etc.? I can't figure out those logistics, so honesly I just throw her in her crib and let her cry for a few minutes if need be.

Oh, and I am SO very glad to hear that I am not the only one who washes sheets all too infrequently!

I want pizza now. Or, oooh, Taco Bell. The drive-thru people won't care that it's 3 pm and I'm still in my jammies, right??

Yup! Calli did a similar thing to me the other night. I was trying to rock her to sleep so I could go to bed. She finally fell asleep and I figured I should probably sit there for a few more minutes and watch T.V. to make SURE she was asleep before I put her down for the night. Well about 5 minutes later I looked down at her and her big eyes were staring me right in the face. I told her "Don't you know you are supposed to be sleeping right now?". She put her chin to her chest and gave me the biggest, slyest smile I have seen. It was almost like she knew what I had said to her LOL.

For using the potty while holding her... I've gotten really good at working the pants up one side at a time.... or sometimes I put her down on the bathroom floor mat if I'm having a hard time. :

I leave her laying on the changing table to go grab something I've forgotten... even though I know how dangerous that is... b/c I know she can't roll yet... but SOMEDAY she'll be able to roll and I just hope I don't discover that b/c she's rolled off the changing table.

This morning I put her in the swing and told her I'd be right back, I just needed to use the potty and blow my nose... but then I ate breakfast while reading a book and then got dressed and she kept muttering and yawning and I knew she was tired and I should go get her in the wrap for her nap... but by the time I'd gotten to her she'd already passed out... so I came on the internet! I felt like a really crappy Mommy for abandoning her to the swing.

After one particular hard night, my husbnad FINALLY got the 3yo to sleep, and I got the cranky little one to sleep, and put him down in bed, I tiptoeskipped around the house whispering "I'M FREE!!" I knew it could be 15 mins later when the little one got up and wanted to nurse some more (the Everlasting Growth Spurt Man) but I didn't care if it was 2 mins or 1 hour, I was happy that I had gotten a few seconds of having my body and my ears all to myself.

Oh! And I'm never on time anywhere anymore. And what's more, I don't care.

Uh, that's what receiving blankets are for, right? to cover those wet spots up in the night? Some of mine have gotten more use that way rather than being used as actual blankets--which I don't have a whole lot of need for since my baby practically lives in the sling and co-sleeps at night.

I stripped a pair of sheets off the bed and ran them through the washer. In the meantime I put a pair of flannel sheets on since it got cold and the clean sheets got piled on top of a laundry basket. Then they found their way to the love seat--I put them there so I'd remember to fold them. But I got sick of looking at them, so I piled them on my bed to get them out of the way, after which my children (who were in my room watching a movie because I banished them from the living room while the baby was sleeping) shoved them onto the floor where they've been for oh. . . 3ish days or so. I'm going to have to rewash them I think, if nothing else to get the wrinkles out, LOL.

I still have frozen food that I made before she was born in the freezer. I keep forgetting to set them out to defrost. We've eaten macaroni and cheese (mmm! probably more than we should, and yes, done pizza or fast food more than we should. I have grand plans to make weekly menus so I'll always know what to fix. But then, I had grand plans to not pick at Eowyn's baby acne too.

(I only picked at the ones on her head though. That way if they scar, then at least her hair will cover it.

Me too!

I second the pizza thing except I go get take and bake and blast the music in the car for some down time. After eating the pizza I actually complain that I am not losing weight faster!

My DD has acid reflux and would not co-sleep very well last night, so she spent the night in her car seat...again.

I am still too embarassed to NIP, so I nursed in the bathroom at Target the other day while using the bathroom.

I usually grab a random article of clothing, or two, and take them into the fitting room to pretend to "try them on" when really I'm sitting in there nursing. I don't feel like going through any potential drama with the fitting room employee.

I NIP on a bench in the middle of the mall. Just LET someone come up and say something to me. . . I'm armed!




I too, complain about not losing weight fast enough, even after pizza. . .

I NIP wherever I happen to be. I'll admit I prefer something comfy to sit on that is backed. So far I've nursed at Ikea, the swimming pool, pizza restaurant, pho restaurants, wings restaurant, mall, and parking lot of Michael's. I don't cover up when I nurse, but I do wear nursing shirts (mostly to cover my belly). I'm with Heidirk. If someone were to ever say something to me, they'd get an earful from either dh or me. In Oregon, we're allowed to nurse freely in public wherever babies are allowed.

OMG. Thank you for confessing this. What a good idea! I'm still NIP-shy.

I too eat crap and then complain the weight isn't coming off fast enough.

* I told Ella i was going to sell her to the gypsies if she didn't stop crying.
* I too don't always change wet diapers right away at night.
* I spend way too much time online or just staring at her during the day, then tell DH that I really did try to get stuff done around the house.
* I let the dog cuddle DD when she's in my lap. They look so cute lying there all snuggled and it's really warm too!
* I eat over DD. I realised the other night she had pizza sauce from when I was eating cold pizza for breakfast on her neck. Oops.
* I love my baby swing. I feel so bad for this one.
* I sing about everything. I didn't even realise it until DH was home one day and caught me singing "dirty diaper, poopy butt, stinky girl" to Ella when I was changing her.

We tell Nora we're going to leave her on top of the mountain when she cries and won't stop.

Ok - I have a real confession. I really do not want to go back to work. I hate thinking that Nora's going to spend more time with my MIL than with me in just a few short weeks. I have every intention of quitting my job within weeks of going back.

I'm all for it Carrie. If you and your hubby can financially swing it, I think SAH is awesome. Since I make almost 70% of our household income, it's not feasible for us at the moment. I begged my dh to find a new, higher paying job so I could quit mine until the kids were school aged. He was really lazy at looking and it just got to be too late. Now the market is CRAP and it definitely won't happen.

Ok.. This is a confession.. and I am not a first time mom but a first time daddy...

I cut my sweet Calla's nails today since we were going to Grammy and Popples (my niece and nephew named my dad that, ) today. One time when I cut, she cried for about two seconds and then stopped, I looked and didn't see anything, later we realized I cut her little thumb. She doesn't seem to mind, but I feel horrible.

I never cut Colin's nails with clippers until he was almost TWO because I was afraid of that! I either was an animal and bite them off (weird right? But apparently a lot of people do it, seriously!) or as he got bigger dh cut them.

Me too. I always beg Bee do it. If I would use the baby fingernail file daily, maybe we wouldn't need to cut at all???

Since Bill confessed nipping Calla's thumb (it's just a tiny tiny cut), I'll share the details of Calla's very first booboo - courtesy of her loving mother.

It was one of her very first outings and I was changing her diaper in the backseat of the car. She started wailing very angrily and loud. I was surprised that she was being so uncharacteristically squirmy and mad... UNTIL I realized I was pressing her fontanelle into/under the carseat base. I scooped her up right away and noticed that I had scraped her head hard enough for it to bleed a bit. I was so horrified that I had hurt my little three week old baby! It hurt my heart. She seems none the worse for wear, though.

Did you see mine? I cut my tiny guy, and I'm not even a first timer! He cried and bled, and I had to figure out how to put a bandaid on a tiny baby's finger! I felt sick, but it healed very quickly.

On Thanksgiving DH's aunt mentioned that Eleanor's nails were kind of long (we had never cut them), so when we got back he got out the clippers. Well, he ended up clipping *two* of her fingers, but it was only with the second one that she started to cry. Her eyes welled up and she just started wailing at him with the saddest look on her face - he says it traumatized him for life! She, of course, seemed to have forgotten all about it 5 minutes later. So now fingernail cutting is another one of Mommy's duties, although I haven't done it yet.

This thread is so great! I have a few.

I frequently put off changing dirty diapers "so she can finish" lol.

The other day I woke up and changed the FULLEST (disposable) diaper in the world! It was so wet. I cant beleive it didn explode.

I have scratched off the head of many, many baby zits. I dont press down w/ 2 fingers. I only scratch gently on the ones that are about to blow. She doesnt cry but she gives me a dirty look.

I am genuinely embarressed about her ear tags (which I have decided we are going to remove), horrible baby acne, and umbilical hernia. I feel like she's defective. I feel really bad that these embaress me. Mostly the skin tags on her ears.
