Unbelievably Overwhelmed Part 529357
So, I know that nobody actually reads any of my text posts but I need to splurge. Troy lost his job, got a new job in the meantime which isn’t making much money and we still don’t have health care. I’ve been trying to navigate the inner workings of the government websites, trying to get us signed up for Medicaid after Bryn was approved for Healthy Kids. All the while,...
Pacis, dummys and binkys OH MY!
Sometimes I wish Bryn would just take a pacifier. Like today, when she keeps waking herself up and the only way I can calm her down is by sticking a tit in her mouth. It’s been like this for hours. When I finally get her to stop crying when it’s in her mouth (the pacifier, that is), she just doesn’t know what to do with it. She doesn’t suck at all, she does that thing...
Just found out
There is a new bakery near my house called the “Pinwheel Bakery” and it’s just down the street from Troy’s new job. THEY HAVE ALFAJORES. NOBODY HAS THOSE. Seriously, every pound I have lost will now be regained. In the matter of days, I’m sure. The sheer amount of delicious baked goods in the window is just ridiculous.
So I bought a ring sling. It was like $60. I’m trying to decide if I like it or not. I am still on the fence.
Things that happened to me today:
Watched a man get out of his car to get a tall boy out of his trunk at a stop light, in front of all the cars, at 2 PM. Watched a student in my class run his hand down his crotch. What is with people today?
troyshipman asked: Samantha, Today is Fathers Day, the day to celebrate all of us stubble chinned sperm donors across the country. Since this is my first Fathers Day, I'm not really sure how to act, but it has caused me to spend some time reflecting upon my new role. To sum things up so far, it has been amazing. Bryn is everything I have ever hoped for, and you really truely are an amazing mother. Every time...
I’m the worst dairy free mom ever. I seriously gobbled down blueberry pancakes covered in butter like it was my job. I didn’t even realize what I had done until an hour after we left. Husband WHY U NO REMIND ME
Anonymous asked: are you happy?
It’s my husband’s birthday. I didn’t get much if chance to shop for him because he was supposed to be at work all week and instead he got fired. But he’s on a bike ride this morning, so I’m going to try and finish. I wanted to get him some records and then when I couldn’t find them, some CDs and then when I couldn’t find those, I downloaded the music...
I breastfed at the mall today. In front of strangers! In my moby wrap! It was awesome!
I used to get help at night with the baby. I used to be more than just the food source for the crying baby. I’m really feeling physically crazy from the lack of sleep and mentally insane from the stress. I used to be a happy, healthy person. I need a break from this nonsense.
kingpercy: has anyone tried this? i know everybody thinks their baby is really cute, but seriously, my baby is really cute. i want to submit some pics of percy but i have no idea what the process is like or what to expect. if he got rejected, i would go down there. i dunno. we have a friend who did some cereal commercials as a toddler and she has a pretty substantial nest egg. i would love...
I’m still bleeding and I’m a month out from my delivery. I need sex. Body, don’t you understand?
Just put in our 30 days. I guess my wish came true in the worst way possible.
I’m feeling overly dramatic today. Thank god we’re having chicken and dumplings for dinner. I’m going to drown my tears in it.
Troy lost his job today. We now have no healthcare and no income for no good reason. I’ve applied for MIChild health coverage for Bryn and I. I should know in 45 days. I love Michigan, but I really hate that I’m living in a state in financial turmoil. Also, I’m trying to be strong but I’m angry and upset and mostly scared. I know we’ll be okay, but this is...
BRYN IS SMILING
mommymayhem101 asked: Your family is adorable :)
I’m going out to a bachelorette party tonight. I’m nervous! I’ve been pumping like a mad woman so that I have enough for hubby to take care of feeding Bryn. I plan on drinking tonight, but I’m nervous that I’m going to get too drunk and Troy will run out of milk or I won’t be able to drive home or something. I’m being ridiculous because I am in no...
Nevermind, I’ll be stuck in this apartment until I die.
We are going to look at a house in about an hour! I am going out of my f-ing mind in this tiny apartment.
I keep gaining and losing followers. I’m not sure what you’re looking for. More cute things? Is my daughter not enough for you? Please tell me if there is anything else you’d like to see here. I am a wealth of information!
I’m really trying not to have Bryn in the bed while we sleep but sometimes after our nighttime feedings, the only way I can get her to stay asleep is by leaving her and I can’t help but cuddle her cute face. The bassinet is right next to me but I guess it just doesn’t scare me to have her right next to me while she can’t roll over. I usually have her in the crook of my...
WE HAVE YELLOW POOP! MY DILIGENCE HAS PAID OFF!
I’m in my pre-preggo jeans, y’all.
So something is wrong. Either I’ve dried up on my right boob or Bryn is frustrated with the flow from right-y. I think if that’s the case it could be because one, I pumped on that side yesterday and two, she’s been getting bottles here and there. I’m nervous that something is up.
Follow up visit today I thought it was with my regular midwife. Turns out, no, its fucking not. I am so frustrated with this ridiculous hospitals scheduling system. I feel like I’m sitting in a germ bucket at this hospital and all I want to do is go back to my old OB. I can’t stand the way this practice works.
All my pregnant friends: Have your silly babies already so I can squeeze them.
Bryn just made the weirdest screaming sound. She was asleep, but waking up and stretching. So crazy.
Bryn has been having the smelliest, explodiest, greenest poops I’ve seen. My diet hasn’t changed and I’ve been doing research on it. Apparently she might have a dairy sensitivity. So, momma is cutting out dairy until further notice. I don’t know how I feel about this yet, but if it is the problem, we know what will fix it. I know that green poop isn’t...
