I have no cash, no check book, no credit or debit cards nothing and I have to leave w/o a bit of food and have dh go back and grocery shop all over again. I was so disappointed! And I hear people behind me sympathetically saying "well it's not like she doesn't have so much going on. 4 days old! It's completely understandable."
Dang! So close to a great first outing alone! LOL. It's 20 minutes each way from home to the closest grocery store so I wasn't even going to try to run home and go back to pay. I just told them I was sorry and I wouldn't be back and explained where I lived and they were totally cool and all. I still felt totally stupid and embarrassed though.


Oh, Mandy!! I can so totally relate to this!! hug2.gif

You know you're a new mom when someone asks what happened yesterday and you can't remember one thing, not even that big thing like friends having come to visit.

When you need to change clothes as often as the baby, and you still smell like sour milk, but you're just glad that there are shirts that cover your belly... and you can wear real jeans that zip up and have pockets!

Crocs.

 

My son was born in February, and I wore Crocs the whole time.

 

It was cold and rainy here today, and I wore real shoes with laces. It felt so weird!

When you don't remember the last time you showered. 

 

Actually I just took a shower last night (woohoo!) but I already feel gross again from all the spit up, leaky boobs, the poop that I got all over my hand during the middle of the night diaper change, and spending the whole night sweating because I now have two children sleeping on me making me overheat!

scottishmommy You know you're a new mom when your vagina makes a squishing sound every time you sit down!

Mama2ChicknLil Oh lord, you know you're a new mom when you can't remember the last time you wore a shirt. Seriously, why men are allowed to go topless but we need to cover up our functional torn up nursing nipples is completely lost on me!!

LOL--so true!  I was so stoked to wear "real" underwear again, and regular size pads instead of the huge overnight diaper ones.

 

You know you're a new mom when 3 straight hours of sleep feels like heaven (and you can finally spend that 3 hours sleeping on your back!)

You know your a "new" mom when you excitedly fit back into your pre pregnancy underwear, but at the end of the day notice that you have had them on backward the ENTIRE day! Sheepish.gif
