Friday Fun

Hi blogger ladies,
I am on a mission for organization in my house. I have come to the conclusion that my husband is not on this same mission, and will never be. I am on my own. I have discovered that it is not only my blogging that has suffered but also my bill paying, mail opening, phone call returning, and other necessary fucntions of life. So I ask you all knowing internet people. How do you do it??? Oh, giving up any more sleep is NOT an option. Please send me your wisdom. My child is about to start crawling and it is now or never to find the answers.

Ok, ok

I know I said I would be better about blogging and I am sure that there is no one still reading but I am going to post anyway. Now the little man is almost 6 months! Holy crap. I am supposed to start doing things like feeding him (ya know, mushy veggies and such). That sounds like it is going to cut into my blogging time even more. bummer. Should make for some funny pictures though :-)

I have to blog about the scene I saw yesterday. We were out for lunch with some friends for father's day and the table across from us a big famiy, 3 school age kids, and their parents were having lunch. The kids and dad were chatting and laughing. Mom was reading a novel. No talking or interacting at all. What's up with that??

Also, did anyone read the NY times mag article on parenting balance? I thought it was very interesting that the only couples that have the balance figured out are lesbian parents. Go Lesbian mamas! Thanks for showing us the way :-)

Hello again!

Whew! This taking care of a small being really sucks up all of your time huh? I have missed you all and am going to try and be better about cheking in. It has been 4! The little prince (LP) has been growing up a storm and can sumo wrestle any of the other babies in his age group. I may have gotten a few hours sleep in the last couple of months and my house is filled with laundry and dirty dishes, but we are having a great time here!
LP is big enough to travel these days and we have been all over the map including a trip home to podunk. It was fab. We got to see our favorite friend RBelle!

So many deatils to fill you in on...but they will have to wait until the next nap time. Baby calls!

The prince has arrived!

As you probably could have guessed, our little prince has made his grand entrance into the world. Sorry I didn't let you know sooner but things were/are kind of crazy.

He decided to show up one day early (made mommy very happy). The story goes that I had been trying to coax him out with spicy food and long walks to no avail, but as hubby and I were heading to bed the evening of the 19th I said "I bet he decides to come tonight". This was my guess because it was in the middle of a major storm. Rain, wind, the whole nine yards. Sure enough, 30min later the water breaks and we are off...
9.5 hours of labor later, I find that my anesthesiologist is my new favorite person and 7hours after that " the prince" arrives with no complications. He weighed in at 8lbs and was 21 inches. Just perfect :-)

Then all chaos ensued and has just let up in the past couple of days. Brief summary: my parents staying with us and tons of other visitors + Christmas and New Years=very busy. Add in breastfeeding issues + another storm that knocked out power for 2 days to the normal sleep deprivation and general newborn issues and you have a very tired and frazzled mommy.

Today hubby is back at work and prince is asleep in the sling so all is quiet on the western front...for now.
