First – thank you ALL for your comments and tweets and messages about my last post. I may have been a teeeeny bit hormonal when I wrote it, but it really did come from a real and terrifying place. It makes me feel less terrified knowing that I am not alone. We will survive this whole parenting thing!
Other than hormonal breakdowns – here are a few other things going on in my life…
1. B has a supernumerary tooth.
I actually found out about this 6 months ago, but kinda forgot about it.
I was wondering, when he lost his front tooth in October, why he lost that tooth first. Usually teeth fall out in the order they appear – and his bottom teeth were definitely the first to come in. Well, apparently the extra tooth pushed his baby tooth out! You’ll notice that the tooth growing in it’s place is not your typical adult/permanent tooth. According to his dentist, this is NOT completely uncommon (and apparently is hereditary and as long as it doesn’t interfere with his other teeth falling out/coming in it’s not a big deal. If it’s still chilling there at his next appointment (in 6 months) we’ll discuss pulling it. But for now this just means that B gets an extra visit from the tooth fairy.
Of course that doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s freaky and weird and cool all at the same time. I mean – that extra tooth has been there this WHOLE TIME. Weird, right?
Paula and I are going to be racing in our VM Movie t-shirts later this year because OF COURSE we donated. I CANNOT WAIT.
If you’ve never watched Veronica Mars — here’s your chance. The WB is streaming all 3 seasons right now: http://www.thewb.com/shows/veronica-mars
Watch it. You won’t regret it.
3. My blog has a new look!!
During the 28-Day Blog Challenge, I hired Larissa to redesign my header, social icons, and an email signature. I gave her some really vague details on what I was looking for and she did a great job channeling them into a finished product! What do you guys think??
Oh, and I also updated my blog email address… it’s now firstname.lastname@example.org. You know, for all of your emailing needs 🙂
4. My kitchen is the cleanest it’s ever been.. or at least it was for a brief time yesterday.
I bought a Living Social deal more than 6 months ago and finally used it yesterday. I have to say – it was worth it! My kitchen looks so pretty and I feel so clutter-free — and man, that is a good feeling! We had two women come in for 1.5 hours. They also mopped my floors and did a TON of dusting. After this experience (it was the first time I’ve had anyone come in and clean), I can definitely see the allure of having a regular service come in once/twice a month. It’s not happening now, but it’s on my someday list…
5. I decided to become a Bulu Box ambassador!
I’ll have more details for you soon (and my review, I just got my first box), but if you’re interested you can check out it out here. <- This is my own personal link and in full disclosure if you sign up through it, I DO get a commission.
6. I’m self-diagnosing myself with pregnancy-related carpal tunnel syndrome in my left wrist.
There’s my wrist!
My left hand has been tingly for a few weeks now and recently the pain has set in. My plan is to buy a wrist guard to wear it to bed. I’m pretty sure sleeping on my left side is aggravating it. Yay! So fun!
7. 32 weeks and counting.
I know everyone is really looking at my bleached out towel. This is the kids’ bathroom, OK?
The latest my Dr. will let me go is 41ish weeks. So, worst case scenario? I have about 9 weeks left. That single digits!
I HAVE made a little progress (still no paint though)… I went through all of my bins and picked out enough boy and girl newborn/0-3 month clothes to last us at least a week.
PS – Girl stuff is way cuter.
There’s a bunch of gender neutral stuff in there too. It’s now washed and waiting to be hung up. Now, I just need to work on the rest of the room.
8. This is what L decide to play in yesterday after getting home school.
Could she BE any cuter (or wearing any more clothes)?
