Emotions, Stuffs, and Word Vomit

My emotional explosion yesterday can be attributed to a couple of things. My friend Julia brought to my attention that weaning could have a lot to do with my inability to control my emotions. While, I’m not all about putting blame onto something, I can pinpoint that the end of breast-feeding was the start of a lot of self-talk that amounted to me feeling badly about myself. I had a grand plan that I would be the one ending our breast-feeding relationship, but Kinsey just one day pushed…

Where I Think I Locked My Keys in the Car...

I went to bed last night feeling like I had a hive on the underneath of my lip…the inside of my lip I suppose, but not completely inside the mouth, just like, well, the underside. Anyway, I woke up at 2am and my top lip was swollen up like Angelina Jolie. This has been happening to me for few weeks now, so I didn’t yelp in horror, instead just shrugged my shoulders and popped a couple more Benedryl.

Children's Songs I Do Not Understand

I did not think through my song choices very well with Kinsey, and as a result, I am stuck singing “Day-O” about 3x per day on average. I introduced a David Crowder Song at bedtime, and that one works only at bedtime. Then, a couple weeks ago, Bryant and I started singing “Down by the Bay” in the car as we were driving across town, and our multi-part “repeat after me” rendition seemed to work quite nicely. However, now there are only two songs that will postpone a carseat freakout, and both…

Mama Reflection

Last week was one of those weeks that I think was tagged in our timeline of unforgettable weeks. Sometimes, you have a ‘hard’ week, and then there are the weeks that are more than hard. I am learning <the hard way> that you can’t control anything. As much as I’d like to have things handled, I have to accept that things can easily fall out of their rhythm. As a new mom, I think that you are always waiting for things to get better. I self talk a lot. I say “You just have to get through…
