My grandma came over today and she said "that's the first time I've seen you smile, when I mentioned I did your dishes."

I appreciate the hard work, what can I say? :)

No, really, I am feeling better. I really enjoyed the company and having someone to talk to, other than the baby. I am still way too cooped up I think. I'm going bonkers being at home all the time. My mom said it's like a prison sentence the first few years being a stay at home mom, and yeah, it totally is.

Not that I don't love my cell mates but every once in a while, I'd like to go to the prison yard for a little fresh air, know what I'm sayin'?

I'd really love to get a job outside of the home. I think that is what I really need. Although right now it's not exactly going to work out that way, but I can dream, can't I?


One thing I am really excited for is to see the Hunger Games movie. Do you know how rare it is that I actually want to watch a movie? Let alone watch a movie in theaters? On opening day?!

Ah, yeah, so it's a pretty big deal for me. I re-read all of the books.

I tried to read Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. UGH . Do not want. I'm not going to bash the book, but I just didn't like it. It wasn't at all what I was expecting.

I did download 125 Brain Games for Babies. My opinion? Meh.

Drake wants to sit up all the time now. I am going to have to get him a Bumbo chair. He likes the bouncy one we have too, so that helps. Also, if you stick your tongue out at him enough times, he will do it back! He also smiles when you smile, and he can wave his arm if you wave first. He's learning things! It's more fun now that he can do that.


  1. My monkey freakin LOVED the bumbo but she really liked sitting in the horseshoe shaped nursing pillow When on the floor. Helped her to build her own muscles too! We used to put her in the middle of the table at family dinners in the bumbo, it was awesome she'd entertain us all with her jabbering! Lol

  2. It's so difficult to remember the feeling when all I wanna do is go home to my prison :) But I do remember the feeling from that long year and a half I was looking for a job! It was torture.

    Aww I wanna stick my tongue out toooo :))

  3. Awe-he sounds adorable!!

    I hope you get out soon-I felt like I HAD to stay home with my first...boy was I wrong. The second baby I was much happier because we went out to do things.


COMMENT. You know you have an opinion, air it!
