To Dwell

(yesterday afternoon)
Me: Can we hang out together tonight?
Hubster: What do you want to do?
Me: Nothing really.  I’d just like to dwell in the same room with you when we’re not asleep.

You know your spouse has been super busy lately when your idea of hanging out together is simply to dwell in the same room!

Guess Who Was Playing With My Shoes Again?

A little something to make you smile today – C was playing with my shoes again!

Eating Right for PCOS

I’ve been doing a lot of Google searching about PCOS and the type of diet that is best for people with it.  By diet, I don’t necessarily mean a temporary way to eat to lose weight; I’m talking about diet as the lifestyle necessary for optimum health with this condition.  My goal is not only weight loss (though I am motivated by my doctor saying it’s “nearly impossible” for women with PCOS to lose weight), but optimum health because I want to give myself every advantage against the fertility difficulties that can result from this condition.  I want more babies, yo! ;)

Our Week in Pictures

“Look, Mama!  Now I can pull myself up whenever I want, even when you’re not watching!”

“I also like to leave behind a path of destruction.”

On my shopping spree to find new clothes to flatter the new body shape that C left me with, I found what I think will become my favorite dress of the summer season!  Please excuse the awkward self-portrait-in-the-bathroom. ;)

Another Scary Step in the Right Direction

C and I had the best morning together yesterday.  We went to our newly remodeled Target (don’t even get me started on how excited I am about it!), had a lot of fun playing and laughing together and then I enjoyed a vanilla latte and he took a 2.5-hour nap.

Review: Boogie Wipes

Disclosure: An Amazon affiliate link is included below.

Ever struggle to get the crusty boogers off your sick child’s nose?  I certainly did.  C would get so angry with us when we tried to wipe his nose.  He’d flail, kick, cry and shake his head wildly.  Then I remembered hearing about how great Boogie Wipes are.  My practical side was skeptical – wouldn’t a wet washcloth work just as well?  After fighting C for two days during his latest cold, I decided to give the Boogie Wipes a try.
