confessions

27 June 2014

Humpty Dumpty sat on her mom.

the latest and greatest from the confessional around here ... and linking up with my go-to hot mess gal while I'm at it.

I did four minutes of one of my favorite workout DVDs two days ago before someone started hollering about something VERY URGENT. Four minutes and I'm still sore.

Simon had to work both Saturday and Sunday night last weekend and so I attempted to parent-pressure Julia into sleeping in my bed thinking she might ease my paranoia because I'm 30 and she's 3. But, sadly, not all the bribes in the world could convince her to leave her room.

Our oven has been broken since before Phoebe was born. The stove works fine but the only time this Betty Crocker misses it is when she wants to make cookies. Specifically these.

Apparently we didn't do a very thorough job of explaining to Sebastian that pregnancy eventually produces a baby and that baby = now two month old Phoebe because today he gave me a long up-down, wrinkled his brow, and asked, "hey! where'd that baby in your tummy go?!" 

As we were walking out of Costco last week and the time came to show the gentleman at the exit our receipt, I opened my wallet and grabbed the longest receipt I could find. I breathed a sigh of relief because we'd made it through the store and no one was crying or whining and I hadn't even lost my receipt!! And then the kind sir looked at the receipt, handed it back, and burst my bubble with, "Uh, I'm afraid this is actually for Dunkin Donuts ..... "


Right.

  6. Sebastian's comment is light years better than getting a "oh Mamas having another baby, look at her big tummy" when baby's 6 months old and you're definitely NOT pregnant again. Not that I have any experience with that....nope.

  7. Ha! We just went to Costco yesterday and as we were leaving my middle one yelled, "Get your receipt so the guy knows we didn't take stuff this time!" Erm...

  8. My thirdborn, without fail, will poop her diaper right as I hit circuit 2: strength of the 30 Day Shred. I'm always torn between irritation and IMMENSE GRATITUDE. Sorry Jillian, gotta go!

  9. Sigh. Having just entered the world of checking labels for allergens for our child, and discovering that all of Dunkies' baked goods have an allergy warning, we really miss those doughnuts!

  11. I went to a pilates class a couple weeks ago and was sore for like 4 days after. 4!!!! Baby number 2 will be 4 months old soon. One would hope I had a shred of core strength by now.

  12. We moved AWAY from DD a few weeks ago, and it is by far the worst part of moving.....by far.

  13. We went through a season when everything in my cardboard castle (aka my post-divorce doublewide) was not functioning properly. The biggest problem we had with the loss of the oven was no vehicle for heating our frozen pizza. However it also coincided with the a/c going out so we probably would have steered clear of turning on the oven anyways. I dated a handy-man for awhile until things were fixed. True story.

  14. Lol my husband is a police officer and occasionally works nights. I'm always trying to bribe one of my kids to sleep with me. Not sure why I think I'm safer with a 7 year old next to me lol

  15. I wish I could give you some of my sleeping alone confidence -- I've lived alone since law school, and I've managed to convince myself I'll be safe. In exchange, I wish you could give me one of those donuts. Fair trade?

  16. Our oven has been broken since Christmas. When our new one (hopefully) come next week, the first think I'm doing is baking the largest cake I possibly can.

  17. I went to my first yoga class since having this baby (now 12 weeks old). And it was the slow stretch yoga class with all the older people. It's been three days and I'm still achey!

  18. I've done that at Costco before. On purpose so I could just get out!

  19. Totally slept in Ryan's full with him in the boys' room the two nights Chris was gone before I went to my parents.

  20. I saw that video and previewed it upon your recommendation. I'm sold, I'll be ordering it pronto. Thanks! I love 10 minute solutions and I'm excited there's a kickboxing one. I would die without my oven but I'd probably survive with my crockpot for a few days before growing too panicky.

  21. All those stories are kind of amazing. Especially the donut receipt one. EXCEPT now I'm really craving donuts. (thanks a lot!)

  22. her dress is amaaaaaazing.

    I actually want it in my size.

    Do you ever matchy-match P and J? It's thoughts like these which lead me to consider gestating a partner in crime for Evie...

  23. best photo caption ever.
    I did all of 5 mins of thighs yesterday... feeling it today. Don't know if I feel more accomplished that I felt good enough to attempt exercise or embarrassed that it took so little to make me sore.
    Grace keeps asking me if my tummy is big because of the baby... wish I could say that it was the only reason (I'm a sucker for sugary carbs).

  24. I am proud of you Grace. My Dunkin Donut receipt is the longest in my purse as well. Happy weekend!
