Do you know what I hate??

When you go to post your new entry and you hit the wrong button and everything that you have been working on for 30 minutes is, since I don't have another 30 minutes to type what I just typed, you will get the shorthand version. Watch out folks, this is a good one!

1. Sick all weekend, got what baby had last week. No sleep because baby doesn't gets better, mommy gets worse, no sleep continues

2. Taking trip to Florida with baby on Friday for much needed R&R with parents

3. Husband works alot, gone alot on weekends...feel like single mom sometimes...blah, blah, blah...feeling sorry for myself because according to a reliable source, today is the most depressing day of the year. See...there's your excuse!!

4. Scared baby will throw gigantic tantrum on plane...need to make sure Xanax is in carry on, not checked luggage

5. Know baby will charm the pants off of flight team...number 4 may become null and void.

Basically, I just saved you a bunch of boring jabber, so maybe we should thank Blogger for not publishing my last post.

On a positive note....even on a bad day this makes everything worth it

You know you're a mom when....

You take your sick daughter to the Urgent Treatment Center in a hat and no make up....because you just decided it wasn't worth taking a shower today, and your black sweater is covered in trails of baby snot.

Ava woke up from her nap lethargic and burning up, so off to UTC we went. An antibiotic and decongestant later, I'm already feeling better. However I am not looking forward to waking up every 4 hours for a dose of Tylenol....husbands gone so this one's all up to me.

Snotty McGillicutty

That would be what I'm calling Ava right now because I had no idea something so little could produce so much snot. And all these coughing fits, and snot blowing episodes are the results of.....a cold. A freaking cold. At least if she had something else they could give her something for it, but I'm forced to giver her over the counter medicine, and listen to her snotty little nose try to breathe over the baby monitor. Poor little mommy, because honetly for the most part the baby doesn't seem to care. Sure she's uncomfortable and she coughs and sneezes alot, but she is having way too much fun rubbing the snot all over her face, and her clothes, and her blankets. She will start to get herself into a coughing fit, and then stops to smile and laugh as if it was really funny. What can I say she really is a trooper!

Damn you Chuck E Cheese...

New Babe in Blogland

Well…I’ve finally done it, I’ve jumped on the bandwagon AGAIN. First it was MySpace, and now this. My computer has been my best friend since I stopped working in March 2006 to become a SAHM, and I feel that I owe it to those blogs where I'm constantly lurking to make an attempt at my own. I already regret that I am just now getting around to doing this. If I had known 2 years ago what a blog was, we wouldn’t be having this conversation now. Since I don't get along great with the baby book, I'll attempt to chronicle her life now as we move toward the stages of toddlerhood and the possibility of another baby.

I promise to make an attempt to make these posts funny and interesting but most of the time my life is pretty uneventful. I have a perfect baby, a wonderful husband, and a lazy dog….what more could a girl ask for!!

Until then fellow bloggers….
