Random Tuesday Thoughts: Holy Christ Can This Kid Eat
Miles is going through a growth spurt and holy soggy nipples Batman, I'm exhausted. It's awesome when he's taking a 3 hour nap but KILLING me when he needs to nurse for the entire 1.5 hours he's awake.
I'm in love with my slow cooker these days. I love that I can prepare dinner during nap time and it's ready when Nelson gets home at 6pm. It's so much better than trying to cook around an constantly nursing infant and and into everything toddler. God that makes me sound domestic.
So, daylight savings. I hate losing an hour right? But see, my kids should be sleeping until 8AM now (they usually wake at 7AM) so I was thinking I LOVE daylight savings time. Except for now my kids are getting up at 6AM. What the hell's up with that?
Miles when from sleeping from 7:30PM to 5AM to waking around 1AM and around 3AM and around 5AM. Oh, growth spurt, why do you torture me like this?
AND, Miles' but, the abscess? Still not fully healed. We're back in for our second surgical consult and FOURTH follow up appointment this coming Monday. It really small and practically gone, but it's been four weeks and the sucker is sticking around. I'm so done with it. And having to bathe the area twice a day and wash his bottom with soap and water during each diaper change is a lot. Do you know how many diaper changes a newborn goes through in a day?
Ants. I have them. I found them circling around my sink yesterday AM. Not many, maybe like a dozen. I think it is because we have a leaky pipe and there is a pan catching the dirty ant-yummy water. But don't ants hate water?
And that leaky pipe? So, Nelson told me it was from our old faucet, so we bought a $200 faucet to replace the old one. And a week later, I noticed the pipe was still leaking and I was like, "Um, why is this pipe leaking? You said you fixed this." And he was like, "What? I told you it was still leaking." Okay, he so DID NOT tell me it was still leaking, because now the cabinet beneath our sink is soaked and cracking and dishwasher detergent is ruined and we have ants and I WOULD HAVE REMEMBERED THAT. And why the heck did he think it was okay to have a leaky pipe and make no plan to fix it? He just let the sucker leak and ruin our cabinet. And he goes into that cabinet every night when he takes out the trash. I'm so annoyed. I wanted to call a plumber but my husband insists he can fix it. This is after he already "fixed" it once. He's going by Home Depot tonight for materials, and probably a new tool. If he can't do it this time, I'm calling a plumber. And an exterminator. And a divorce lawyer (kidding.)
