4 Minutes

Standard

In case you haven’t noticed, all (except like 2) of my post titles are song titles or lyrics. This is the Madonna/Justin Timberlake song, not that new crappy song by Rihanna, Kanye, and Paul McCartney titled FourFive Seconds. Honestly, that title makes no sense! I feel like they were gonna tell someone they’d be there in four seconds but they changed their minds mid sentence, “Give me four-five seconds.” I’m not a huge fan of any of the people in that song anyway (not even Paul McCartney, yell if you must about him being a Beatle and how their music impacted music as it is today. blah blah blah.) Sidenote: 4 Minutes by Madonna and Justin Timberlake is now stuck in my head.

Now that that rant is over, I’ll update now. Little Man turned 1 on Tuesday, we had his birthday party on Saturday. I got everything I wanted to get done done, but we didn’t have much of a turnout. We invited about 70 people and of the 50 that told me they’d be there, only about 20 showed up. This year, I’ll deal with it but next year, I’m not putting up with people saying they will be there and not showing up. Little Man will be able to understand people not coming next year and I don’t plan on disappointing my child at an early age. He’s a curious little booger so I know he will ask who is coming to his party, and I don’t plan on lying to him either. That’s terrible. I’ll post pictures of the party in a later post, I didn’t get any since I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to make everyone feel welcome.

Now that the birthday party is over, I can finally relax and not be so frazzled and worrisome about it. I don’t need to plan anything for a little while and it’s going to be great.

Today, Little Man and I are starting a new schedule. I made the mistake of letting him fall asleep nursing and that’s what he’s been doing for naps. After his 1 year checkup in a few days, I’m going to start weaning so I decided to get him used to napping without nursing. It worked out for the nap he’s taking right now, he only cried for about 20 minutes. I’ll have to wait and see if it works for his afternoon nap. During his morning nap time, I’m going to write blog posts and during his afternoon naps, I’m going to watch Netflix. I’m stuck in season 3 of Fringe plus there are SO many shows I want to watch!

The Best Day of My Life *updated*

Standard

I’m back everyone! There was a lot going on yesterday and I wasn’t able to make it to my computer. I’m going to include Wednesday and Thursday’s daily posts for the challenge in this one post. Don’t forget, this is where you go to get the list I’m using.

Wednesday’s post was for a day in the life. Being a stay at home mom, the baby and I did a lot of eating, sleeping, and playing. But our exact schedule is as follows:

7:30- wake up and watch cartoons

Ignore the blurriness. It was still dark in our room.
