Productivity to the Maxx

Whoa, I was wildly productive yesterday.  C’s stay with my parents continues, and I am a goal-making, to-do-list-crossing-off machine!  BAM!

I’ve been working, running errands, working out, helping Hubster prepare for his placement conference (where he’ll have 12 interviews in 2 days), cleaning and organizing the apartment.  I’m pretty much a rockstar.

And Here’s a Clear Picture of The Funny Face!

Thanks to my mom for this clear picture of C’s funny face!

 

C’s New Face

C likes to make this new face, and it cracks me up!  I just need to get a picture of it that isn’t blurry…

 

11 Hours of Sleep? Divine!

I got 11 – ELEVEN!! – hours of sleep last night!  It was absolutely divine and for the first time since before I had C, I actually feel well-rested.  I have energy and feel like myself again.  In fact, Hubster would tell you that I’m playing it fast and loose with the weird life commentary, sound effects and laughter today.  (Doesn’t he remember that’s just my personality?) ;)

Motherhood Made Me Such a Softy

I never used to be a crier.  Only something really moving (like “The Notebook”) would get the tears rolling.  That was before I had C.  Now I cry over a lot of stuff.  C laughing so hard that he gives me happy tears, C’s sad little face while he’s crying, any episode of Parenthood

Review: Magid Disposable Nitrile Gloves

Cleaning – it’s a dirty job, but we all need to do it.  Now that we have a moving, grooving child in our home, I find myself cleaning a lot.  I enjoy the sparkly sheen of a clean home, but I don’t like how cleaning chemicals dry out my skin.  While I clean the bathroom, I like to wear disposable gloves to protect my skin from harsh chemicals.  I like that I can peel off the nastiness of bathroom grime and put the glove in the garbage when I’m done.  I received a box of 100 disposable nitrile gloves from Magid Gloves & Safety Manufacturing Company LLC for review and got to work testing them!

Daddy’s Little Buddy

"Daddy's showering? But I want to play with him!"

What a Day

The last 24 hours have been pretty rough…

Last night, Hubster left for class at about 4:45pm.  I started to feel significant anxiety as soon as the door closed behind him.  The thought that I had to take care of C by myself until his 7:00 bedtime was overwhelming.  I didn’t know how I was going to entertain him for 2 hours and 15 minutes.  The anxiety confused me, considering I’m with C all day every day…why was 2 hours and 15 minutes so completely overwhelming?

I Really Want to Make This…

Betty Crocker Chocolate Pudding Poke Cake = I WANT!

C’s Evolving Personality

I’m pretty sure my adventurous, determined, wild little C started revealing his personality to me while he was still in the womb.  There was a period of time between weeks 20 through about 26 when C was breech and I sincerely thought one of his feet was going to pop ninja-style out of my vagina.  When he wasn’t using my bladder as his personal trampoline, he was ferociously kicking my cervix.  Thankfully, when I thought I couldn’t endure it any longer, he flipped.  Later, when I was encouraging begging him to come out, he decided to make his entrance into the world after my due date.
