6 Weeks Postpartum

Ok so I'm a few days away, but I had my checkup yesterday. All is well. I've been cleared to workout...starting slowly. And my doctor wants to see how I do off of blood pressure meds since my pressure has been really good. I hope this child of mine doesn't drive it up. OH MY GOSH! People say I'm the most prepared person they know. You cannot prepare for this!!

She is the sweetest baby ever...when she's asleep. She's spoiled rotten and that's my fault. But it's so easy to do when holding her calms her down. I don't know what she's going to do when I go back to work. It's going to be rough. For both of us. 

She is very alert during the day and loves observing everything. Around 10 pm we get "the witching hour," which seems to last all night. I don't know what time either of us fell asleep last night. I woke up at 6 this morning still in an upright position holding her to my chest with my glasses on. There is absolutely nothing you can do to calm them during this time. It's upsetting for the both of us. I know it will get better and I'm looking forward to it. Good thing I'm kind of used to not sleeping so I don't totally look like a raccoon. 

I bathed, fed and put her in her bassinet about 20 mins ago and now she's starting to stir. I should have napped instead of writing this post but I miss you guys!  My family and friends have been awesome in helping out. I really need someone here around the clock to help. Single parenting sucks ass!! 

Thanks for being my therapy. Nite folks. Gonna try to get in thirty minutes of ZZZZZZs.

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
