Friday’s Five Things I Learned This Week

In this new phase in my life I find that I am learning more and more everyday. To me it’s exciting and challenging. It makes me appreciate what the world has to offer me. Some of what I learn may not be of any interest to you and that’s okay but some of it will. Also, some of it may just provide you with comic relief!

Five things I learned this week:

1. Kicking my husband a thousand times while he is sleeping is not a sure fire way to stop his snoring. Usually it works after several swift kicks accompanied by me saying “STOP SNORING!” he was still sawing logs. I was pretty sure that I was hearing them echo on the baby monitor.

2. Peaches left in a grocery bag on your counter will mold at rapid speed. I swear they were only there for a few days. I didn’t have room in the fridge for them and thought they would be fine. Nope. Also, squishy + mold= gag gag gag gag

3. Google has a program called Google reader. I can now view all of the blogs that I follow without having to go to each of the sites. You can find it at www.google.com/reader. It’s so cool. I can go to one page and read all of the most recent posts from my favorite blogs. Thanks Jennie for showing me this! It ROCKS!

4. That I will never again be on time due to having a child. For example, LC will wait until we are heading out the door to poop. She will also wait until we have very little time to get somewhere and spit up. Also, I can’t make it through the store without at least three people stopping me to see my little lovebug and then proceeding to tell me ALL about their premie experiences. While I wouldn’t change having her for anything in the worl, it sure would be nice to be on time for once. Note to all those out there- if you want me somewhere on time you’d better tell me the time is 30 mins before it actually is.

5. That blueberries are a lot like corn. ’nuff said.

LC had peaches coming out of her nose

So last night I decide that I am going to try to get LC to eat peaches again . Thursday night was the fist time she had peaches and she REALLY didn’t care for them. However, I’m all well the book says to let them try it more then once to determine if they like it. So I go forth and make her eat peaches (which by the way baby food peaches smell like stinky feet.) She gags them down and makes me happy. Later I go to put her to bed. The usual routine is bath, bottle, then bed. I skipped the bath tonight as my little princess was in rare freak out and fuss mode and go right to the bottle. Now, I have a sweet little girl who is quite silly. Sometimes when feeding her she likes to be in certain positions so that she can see certain things (mainly, whatever glowing or is a fan.) So tonight she decides that she wants to stare at her nightlight while eating. Okay, fine. We get settled in and she takes her bottle down. She gets about three ounces into it when she stops. I take the bottle out to burp her. The next thing I know she has gone exorcist on me and there is peaches and formula all over her, me, and the floor. Nice. I get us and the floor cleaned up and continue. She decides that she wants the rest of the bottle. So she finishes and goes right to sleep. No worries, right? Wrong. At about 10:30pm I hear her stir. She fusses for a second. Then I hear her sneeze, no kidding, 8 times. Then I hear her screaming. I go bolting up the stairs. I swear I haven’t run that fast in years. I get to her room and find a sweet little girl crying with peaches coming out of her nose. Poor thing had sneezed and thrown up at the same time. Needless to say, she slept in mommies room last night and mommy is nixing the peaches from now on.
