Two of my wisdom teeth have popped through in my top row and apart from the over crowding the other thing that sucks the most is being 24 years old and suddenly having two more teeth to brush and floss. I can’t do anything about it until I stop breastfeeding. Pretty sure I’m going to need braces too.
I did not sign up for this shit.
I always forget it’s Friday night until people on instagram and Facebook start updating about their social lives. Usually im like wtf dude slow down on the partying it’s a friggin weeknight… Oh wait.
My son is so sensitive to sugar, it’s insane. He only really started tasting the occasional treat after he turned 2 years old, and even now we limit as much as we can.
Today I baked peanut butter choc chip cookies and was feeling lenient so i let him go wild on them. This was about 3-4 pm.. Its currently 8:90.. 1.5 hours past his bed time, and he isn’t giving in to sleep. We’ve turned all the lights off, no sound, and he’s stealthily sneaking around the house with a torch.
This is my dream sleeper child. I can always rely on him to be asleep within 10 minutes and sleep like a rock. No more cookies for him.
I really want to start working from home. I have ideas on things to do but I dont know if they would take off or not.
Recently I’ve been wanting to start a gender neutral underwear label for kids. You know, with funky colourful fabrics, less butterflies and robots on the usual assigned gender.. But then there’s the problem of deciding if I sew them myself or try to get them manufactured. I’d love to use organic and eco friendly fabric, and I think the only way to do that and be able to make money is to sew them myself.. Which isn’t a problem, I can sew.. It’s just trying to find the time.
Ultimately I’d love to open a website dedicated to gender neutral clothes, toys and books. Whether or not that would work is another story. A girl can dream can’t she?
Baby teeth and sleep
Astrid’s first tooth broke through today. A couple of weeks earlier than her brothers did at her age. I’m going to miss my gummy little baby. It’s always so funny picturing your baby with teeth. I always think it will look funny but they blend in right away.
Along with her sleep regression has come some other complications. Waking up during the night means more frequent night feeds which means more gassy baby due to lack of burps and also the higher chance of pooping at ungodly hours of the morning. Which means more waking. Still, I think we have it pretty good. A beautiful baby girl and still averaging 7-8 hours of (somewhat broken) sleep.
How to put groceries away like a man:
Arrive home with grocery bags. Walk to kitchen and remove milk from plastic bag. Place milk on bench. Place plastic bag with other groceries, including cheese, on floor. Proceed to loungeroom to play with new tablet.
Extended breastfeeding and attachment parenting
Close friends of mine have/are breastfeeding their toddlers. This is something I plan to do as well, but something I’ve noticed through their experience and witnessing others is that toddlers seem to form an almost unhealthy obsession with the boob.
They will constantly be at them, pulling at their shirts and having little fits if the boob is refused. When I catch up with them the toddlers will be wanting to feed more frequently than my 5 month old. It seems terribly frustrating for the mothers and for the toddlers too, and I just really don’t want that kind of breastfeeding relationship with Astrid when she’s older. All of these women also practice attachment parenting, which is great, and I can say I definitely lean heavily towards that form of parenting, but I do wonder if it has anything to do with the boob attachment.
On a related note.. The children I know who have been raised via the full attachment parenting method (keeping in mind that I only know a handful) are all terribly shy children. It takes my friends children hours to warm up to people in a social setting, and even then they don’t stray far from their parents side. I know that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I’m curious of other people’s opinions on this.. especially because I usually see the attachment parenting method advertised as the type of parenting that raises independent children. Perhaps that comes later on?
Taking on the challange to reach the end of my dashboard
I think it’s an unhealthy obsession, but i never feel quite right until i reach to where i left off last time.
Finally had a chance to hop on the computer and reply to messages and also check out recent followers blogs. I get so sad when people have such an awesome description and a photo of themself but then 90% of their blog is reblogs.. Even when it’s awesome photos and good tastes, i just don’t have the time to filter through my dashboard if i were to follow them.
In saying that, if a new follower actively trys in engage in my blog i usually follow back anyway, cause i like people and things. Talk to me if you like ^_^
