Random Thoughts

  • Did you know that you get a lot more attention at Kroger when you have a baby? It used to be that I could go in, get my stuff and leave without anyone making eye contact with me. Now that I have a kid, everyone (ok - maybe not everyone) wants to stop and look at Alex. Of course everyone says he's the cutest thing ever. People make eye contact with me and smile. You know - I used to do the same thing - especially when we were TTC - I would look at ever kid I came across.
  • Why do they design crib/crib sets in such a way that it's impossible to change the crib sheets without it being a big deal? Alex has not leaked at all since we brought him home, and he leaked after two of his naps yesterday. It took us FOREVER to get his crib sheets changed!
  • How do single parents do it? I've been battling a bulged disk in my neck for the past year. It's been pretty well under control - until this weekend. I don't know what I did, but my neck started killing me Saturday afternoon. I've been a mess. I'm in pain ALL THE TIME! I can barely pick Alex up. I went to the chiropractor today, and it helped, but I'm hurting now again. I even took a muscle relaxer last night - I hate taking muscle relaxers because they make me weird. Jay has really helped out. He did a lot of the feeding this weekend, and gave Alex a bath last night. He even stayed home from work for a little bit this morning so I could get to the doctor. How do single parents do it???? Maybe I'm just a big baby. I made Jay promise me last night that he wouldn't die or leave me anytime soon.
  • How can my time off be going so quickly?? Do you realize that if I would have given birth to Alex when he came home, I'd be back at work - my 6 weeks of leave is up! That is SO not enough time!!! I'm glad we are just dealing with it so I can be off for a little longer.
  • I visit a couple blogs every day. One of my favorites is Michelle's Blog. She is starting a secret blog pal thing. I'm thinking about signing up. It would be fun. I've always liked secret pal type things.

Here's a picture of Jay and Alex at the baby shower that Jay's work had for us. There's another picture of the three of us, but I look horrible, and since this is my blog, I'm not going to post it!

(Ok - Blogger won't let me post - I'll try later)
