I had a hair appt made for Saturday and after 2 weeks of being in my house with a newborn all day everyday I was so excited for this appointment, for a of couple reasons. Reason # 1: I just needed a lil me time. Judge if you may but for real, I was ready to just relax and not hear a baby cry for a couple of hours. I have never had anything need me this much in my life, not even my puppy, so it has been a life changing experience. A wonderful blessing of a change, but life changing nonetheless. Reason # 2:...............
Holy frizzy fly away madness. It was time for a Tibolli treatment. If you have super frizzy hair that turns into a brillo pad such as above in even the tiniest of humidity, then you need to ask your stylist about getting one of these! Life. Changing.
I left early to run into walmart to get some formula. I used to spend my money on cowboy boots, now I spend my money on formula. As I was walking through there was a new mom with a very tiny baby doing some grocery shopping. The baby was screaming. I walked by and smiled thinking to myself, I get it and it's ok. You let that baby cry my dear. I then also realized that the baby screaming was an instant trigger for milk stimulation. I have been pumping (couldn't do the breastfeeding thing) and quickly realized I came to town without any nursing pads......fail.
I quickly ran to the bathroom, found a maxi pad in my purse (all you fresh moms know exactly why I had one of those), ripped it in half and made some make shift nursing pads. No one wants to be walking around walmart with 2 wet spots on their shirt and then you find yourself on the people of walmart facebook page. I started laughing in the bathroom stall thinking to myself.....this is real life. I know someone else out there has been in this situation.......no?
I think that documenting these lovely times in my life will give me a chuckle later on when this nugget is like 12 years old and thinks he doesn't need me anymore and is way too cool to be around me.
It also will remind me of the adorable moments like last night when he was fighting sleep and wanted to cry for hours and all of a sudden smiled and laughed for the first time. He even startled himself when he laughed. It made me forget about the crankiness......for a short minute :)
Happy week friends!
