Cue the cardigan switching

I have officially watched my first episode of Daniel Tiger. (With Georgie, obviously - I'm not a total weirdo) Not as terrible as I thought - especially because it's based on Mr Rogers! Can't go wrong with a little "hi, neighbor."

Name that tune

I think I have mentioned how much I love catching "My Favorite Song" on Radio Andy (Sirius XM). This morning's got me thinking how I would answer some of these. It's tougher than you think!

Favorite love song: I Will Always Love You (Dolly Parton version)

Favorite song to dance to: I Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas)

Favorite sad song: Puff the Magic Dragon (I'm sorry - this song KILLS me)

Favorite song from a musical: On My Own (Les Mis)

Favorite rock song: You Shook Me All Night Long (AC/DC)

Favorite song from high school: Return to Innocence (Enigma)/ Stay (Lisa Loeb)

Favorite workout song: Lose Yourself (Eminem)

Serious question.


I mean really. Could she look more awkward/uncomfortable? It's Britney, bitch! Let it go!

Mom win!

Well it got off to a rocky start (see previous post), but I kept the baby alive all by myself for three days! My mom went to Austin on Friday morning and came back Sunday afternoon. Georgie was perfect, aside from apparently dropping to one nap a day (dear god no). We went to a Halloween party and she was totally chill around the other kids, and I took her to music class at church yesterday morning and she was totally chill there too. (Did not stay for actual church and I think everyone saw us leave, but whatev)

I'm going to miss that little bug today. Sigh.

Mom fail

Well, sign me up for the Bad Mom Club. And I don't mean the movie. Georgie fell out of her high chair this morning. I was at the sink, washing out her bowl, and boom. She seems fine - of course I wanted to take her to get a cat scan - but lord the guilt. And since we're confessing, she has also fallen off the couch and off a bed in her young life. And also manages to get bruises on her face all the time. I hope CPS doesn't come - she's quick. And tough. I think I cried more than she did. Still - might invest in some sort of helmet. Sigh.

Will never look at cabbage the same way again

I've been slowly stopping breastfeeding - mostly for selfish reasons (mama needs Botox in a major way), but I also have to have gum surgery and it just won't work. It has been a very long, slow process - like 6 weeks - but I haven't nursed Georgie since Saturday. Gooooo me! It's still a little painful so I've done everything from icepacks to cabbage leaves to Benadryl. A Benadryl virgin, I kind of forgot I took one around 4pm yesterday. By 6:30 I was like, "I am so tired! I could fall asleep sitting up!" And then realized why. (Duh) Slept like a baby, though.

Guys. I made my first-ever blueberry pancakes over the weekend. Flipped them and everything. (Oh, and they were gluten free - and delicious!) Yes, this is a somewhat sad accomplishment at 41, but hey. The baby liked them and seemed impressed, so that's all that matters.
