Mummy Fail!

10 May


In what will probably be the first post of way too many with this title, I share with you a quick #MummyFail moment…

I decided that I could make my own baby food.  Honestly?  It’s not that hard, nor is it overly time consuming.  AND it comes with the added benefit of knowing exactly what’s going into my daughters’ mouth…

I think we’re on veggie six or seven in the ‘red/orange/yellow’ category… Sweet Potatoes!

So!  The hubby picked up an awesome sweet potato on his way home from work tonight.  I peeled and cut up that sucker to steam.  THIS IS VEGGIE SIX OR SEVEN!!  Meaning I have done this FIVE OR SIX other times thus far.  And in only three weeks.  IT’S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE.

But, I may have irreparably damaged our stove.  And melted the bottom out of one of hubby’s pots.  (I’ve hidden it in the sink for the time being.  SHHHH.  Not the greatest hiding place – but it’s got a lid on it.  And… it’s full of (now) brown water… CRAP!!!)

#MummyFail #1*

P.S. The sweet potatoes turned out beautifully, regardless.  The baby gagged on them, which is veggie #2 of gagging (carrots were the only other…).

*#1 as recorded and listed here.  There have been many others.  I may or may not share them as time goes on.


My Kid Looks Like Yoda?!

9 May


Sometimes, when my daughter is very peacefully sleeping, she will take a deep breath and let her neck go slack in my arms…

And as I watch, she purses and un-purses her lips, tilts her head just so and turns into a mini-Yoda in front of my very eyes!


My Kid Looks Like Yoda?!

She’s got the chin tilt, the lips, the eyes, all of it; just a perfect little mix.

When she’s awake, she exudes ‘old soul’… fitting, I suppose.

Hello world! (Literally)

A few things have lead me to this point:

-I’ve been told by a few of the people who receive my baby update emails that I should blog.

-I recently started writing down facts in relation to having a baby, as I experience them, in my iPhone. (#BabyBytes)

-Then, when I tweeted one, I got a pretty good (and funny) group of responses.

So, why not listen and start a blog about them?  It could be fun, right?  My daughter won’t hate me (too much) for having done so when she’s older, right?

I try to make note of one happening/musing/poo-splosion per day.  (Hopefully there isn’t actually a poo-splosion every day…)

Inevitably, I will come up with one per day (or on some days, multiples; some, none), but won’t get to post as often.

Crummy, but very real fact of Mummy life. <- hey look! #BabyByte #1 ha!

And I will probably tweet the short forms, but expand on a few of them here.  That could be fun!


(Warning: blog may include photography, dog musings, food musings… but should mostly contain #BabyBytes!)
