I’ve got not much to share – other than a whole lotta not sleeping, a whole lot of angry baby, and some angry mama moments where I had to go sit in time out and just let myself cry. So instead of depressing everyone with my moment of feeling overwhelmed, I’m going to share some pretty awesome posts and articles I’ve read lately as I’ve gotten caught up on my feedly reader the past few days.
Happy Sunday Friends!
Waving the Mommy Wars White Flag. I loved this post. Let’s support one another. It pains when when mamas make decisions and get all “holier than thou” about them. I don’t care about your baby sleeping from 10 til 8 at 6 weeks. I don’t care that you started your baby on purees at four months. I don’t care that you formula feed. That’s what’s best for you and your baby. I wish my baby slept that much but he doesn’t and we’ll get through it. Just hand me another Dr. Pepper will you?
This Part Time WAHM Reality Check is pretty much the story of my life. I thought the flexible schedule would be key but I end up working much later because it’s harder to get things done during the day. I’m doing my supply a disservice by not pumping regularly when I go into the office because i usually only go in for 3-4 hours 2 or so days per week. But pretty much…I’m always turned on. It’s not fun and I’m wondering what’s going to give. Subsequently, I loved this post about How to Stay Super Productive with a Baby Around. I think, the first answer is take advantage of naps. If your baby takes them. Which mine seems to be on a napping strike. Baby, fail.
Because I’m absolutely in love with our new BOB Revolution SE stroller, here’s an amazing review and how to for stroller running. A great must read for my mom pals who are in the midst of the couch to 5k!
Having had worked in the customer service industry via a gym, lululemon, and LivingSocial – I guarantee you every word of this is so true. If you treat people like shit, why would they want to treat you well in return? I would go over the top for nice customers whereas people who were shitty? Well, you’re not going to be top of my priority list now are you?
Enjoy this image from the week – a happy moment from the week. Here’s to a happier Sunday and happiest fact that this time in a week we’ll be in Vermont with my mom, sister, aunts, cousins and grandparents. I’m so excited to share my home town with baby – even though he’s super little, it’ll just make our trips when he’s older that much better. Also, the 8 miles I have to run next weekend up there? Is going to be a bit bittersweet but I’m pretty excited to fit in a nice long run along the lake hopefully.
What was the highlight of your weekend? Any great blog posts you read this weekend? Feel free to link up and share!
