3 years, 10 months, 1 day (January 2021)

 Hi Peanut! Happy 2021! I'm going to update my last post first, and then I'll go into explaining why it's been so long since I've posted. For once, I have a good excuse.  Your favorite things to watch on TV currently have varied. You're not as into the Spiderverse movie. Since we just passed the holiday season, you had us watch The Grinch a numerous amount of times. But just the first half, you never let us finish it. You had your favorite parts and once those were over, you were done and would fuss until we changed it. The cartoon Grinch, you didn't like other versions. Other than that, you enjoy watching Youtube Kids (we had to wean you off regular Youtube, because you always seemed to end up on the weird side of Youtube like toy crushing vids and stuff). So on Youtube Kids, you like watching a variety of things but mainly Morpheus, Marsha and the Bear and Pocoyo. Recently we caught you watching Blippi videos again, so perhaps you're bringing him back. You

2 Years, 11 Months, 4 Days

Hi Peanut! Here I am with an update to my last post. Currently you are 2 years, 11 months and 4 days old. You're almost 3! Geez, where has the time gone? Your birthday is quickly approaching and with that, I would like to document more things about you that might entertain you in the future.  You're still a little cranky. The tantrums seem less, not sure if that's cuz it's winter and we haven't gone out much or you're just not generally around other children. We're working on that, I swear. Gotta learn to be social even if your momma is not.   Your favorite things to watch on TV right now are slightly different. You are currently obsessed with the Spiderman into the Spiderverse movie. I actually kinda like it. Not watching it 500 times, but I can deal with it I guess. Better than Blippi, anyway. And it has a really good soundtrack that you seem to kind of like, so that's fun. You also like to act out entire scenes from the movie, which is

Notes for Peanut - 2 years, 5 months, 10 days

Hi Peanut! I am documenting some notes that I can hopefully share one day with you, so you can get a glimpse into your child hood. My memory is atrocious, so I am using this method to keep track. Today is August 20th at 9:53am. I am at work, with stacks of work piled around me, but I am doing this instead. Don't judge me. This place does not appreciate all the work your momma does and so she has to take breaks for her own mental health. It takes your parents an hour + to commute here and 2 hours to return home. We do this because we moved before finding new jobs. For you, for grandma and grandpa, for the better, I hope. Anyhoo...currently you are 2 years, 5 months and 10 days old. Man, I'm getting emotional just thinking of how big you are. But that's not what this post is about. Just wanted to track little notes, so that I can share with you later. You are a cranky kid. Trantrums galore. You don't get your way or you're playing with something and it falls, o

Before embracing 2019...

So I didn't blog at all in 2018. I suck. It was a crazy, busy year. Very stressful, so I do have a plethora of excuses, but I am still disappointed in myself. I mean, on a good day, I can usually wrote up a post in like half an hour, so it's hard to think that I couldn't spare even that all last year. Anyway, enough beating myself up about it. For documentation sake, I am going to share some of the things that happened in 2018: 1/7/18 - Peanut had his first Happy Meal. I know he shouldn't, but at his age, you give them what they will eat and the boy loves his french fries, what can I say, he took after mom with that one. 2/17/18 - Went to a waterpark resort/road trip with the family. Peanut loves the water.We also hit up a Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum which was so strange. *FYI, due to my crappy memory, I'm using my phone pictures to trigger my memory 3/10/18 - Peanut was baptized. We had a nice little lunch afterwards at a pizza place. The decor

2019!

I'm gonna keep this short, I'm gonna keep this sweet. Happy 2019! I'm back, bishes! Who missed me? Nadie? Cool. Hopefully we can change that. My goal for 2019 is to get back in the blogging game, so wish me luck! ~I

First Post of 2018

Lookit here, I took another long absence. Surprise, surprise. I suck, I know. I've said it multiple times, but I genuinely have very limited time to update. And home is never the place I'm able to, with the baby and all the regular day to day stuff that has to be done. So I went back and re-read the last post I published, and it was the labor and delivery story. The next post of my journey is sadly, Post-Partum Depression and baby blues, two things that are very real and that I have experienced. Thing is, I'm not really in the mood to go back to that dark place, and thinking about how I was feeling right after, actually bums me out all over again, so I might leave that post for another day, if I share at all. It was an extremely hard moment in my life and I don't quite feel like reliving it right now. Let's move on to current day. Peanut is now 15 months old. 15 freaking months, man! Time flies! He is growing up so fast. He's also a really big baby, looks o

Labor & Delivery Pt. II

It was time to push. My loved ones were holding my legs up to help me. Everyone was coaching me on how to push. One of the nurses said to push as if you were pooping. So that I did, and that I also did. That's right, I pooped when I gave birth. I'm not ashamed, trust me, at that moment, that was the least of my worries. Not so much for the other people in the room though. Not the medical professionals, they've seen it all, I mean my poor family. My husband seemed ok, but my poor sister, she did not take it well and in the middle of my pushing, she just leaves me. I was a little like "where the hell is she?", mainly because my mom couldn't hold my leg up by herself. I was a cranky lady, I can admit that. I told my sister I wanted the nurse to stop talking, I got snippy with my mom, I think with my husband too. It was just a mess. I wanted everyone to shut up. At one point, the doctor asked me if I wanted to reach down and touch the baby's head and I
