Feeling Girly Today

Today was a good day.  We got to leave a bit early, as it was the holiday weekend.  Of course, no one really wanted to work and my friend Jake brought in a cheesecake so we all ended up in a dessert coma.  I am traveling for a wedding this weekend, and after leaving early I headed over to Target to get some batteries and a card, and I ended up getting a dress too.  I am not usually into dresses but I haven’t bought new clothes in awhile and I wanted something nice for the wedding.  Plus they had nail polish in chartreuse!  I have been wanting shimmery chartreuse nail polish, and couldn’t find it.  Either it was too green or too yellow.  It will go well with my electric blue toenails.

In other news, last night we did a little crying it out with Nova.  Over the weekend, she was sick so I slept with her.  Then on Wednesday, she was fussy again so I thought I’d sleep with her.  It was one of the worst nights’ sleep I had in awhile.  She nursed constantly, and kicked and fussed to boot.   I can’t keep doing that, and I can sleep through a lot.  Getting Nova down at bedtime and 2:00 am was a pain, but she slept well after that.

And I have to say that though having a baby is sometimes challenging, (and Nova is more challenging than Rowan was), I am in so much of a better place now.  I am coping with the change to my life in a much better way.  And it helps that my kids are cute.

  1. Beth was (and is) much more of a challenge than Alex was. I didn’t realize just how different two children with the same genes could be! I think kids are cute because they won’t survive childhood otherwise.

    Crying it out is hard, but it seems that you eventually have to try it or you’ll never teach them how to put themselves to sleep. In the short term it sucks, but in the long run it’s better for everyone.

    I hate shopping for dresses, but we also have a wedding coming up in a few months and I’m planning on looking for a new dress since both of mine are about 10 years old!
