I’m so nervous ahhh.
My aunt’s baby shower is tomorrow, she’s having a baby boy in a month (or so).
I’ve giving her a circumcision info packet with a bunch of articles and three DVDs and a letter I wrote for her.
I’m just so afraid of pissing her off but like this is really important to me and I’m afraid she won’t take my seriously because she’s ten years older than me. I’m also really afraid her husband will get mad and I don’t really know him at all.
But yeah my plan is to get there early and give it to her beforehand so that I don’t have to say anything in front of all the guests.
Wish me luck.
This drive to NC is a good test for the drive to IN next week. My back is killing me and I’m not even the one driving, which means the drive to PA then to OH then to IN and back to OH then home is going to completely ruin my back.
Dear lady at Walmart, thank you for making me feel like shit. I’m sorry my two-year-old ran our cart into your cart, but it was an accident and did not require you to cuss and tell me to “control your kid.” You also made my daughter feel so bad that she asked to sit down and kept apologizing to me. Thanks for that.
How did you use the breastmilk for adult acne? Do you just rub it on lol? Or do you make some sort of wash using it?
I just rub it on lol. But I think you can mix it with something like coconut oil, too.
I really agree with what you said on the confessions page. I'm extremely worried that I'm going to see one of my friends lose it and have a breakdown because of all the horrible things said. It seems like the admins just don't care at all :(.
Their response was pathetic. They are condoning such childish bullying. -.-
Right on the 6 month mark or just whenever? Why avocado? Just curious trying to figure out when and what to feed my daughter I was thinking the same..
Probably not right away. It will be when she shows that she’s interested after six months. And avocado is super healthy, full of good fat that babies need, and very easy to eat. :)
When will you feed izzy her first solid food and what will it be?
When she is at least six months. Probably avocado. :)
I’m pretty sure breastmilk can be used to help all skin problems ever.
So far I’ve used it successfully on cradle cap, diaper rash, baby acne, adult acne, dry skin, and sunburn. All with good results.
So, I saw this on confessionsofamadmumblr today:
Ironically, I usually rather quite like both of the admins that responded, but it makes my stomach turn that these girls help run this blog. I was like “What? No way! How can they support this? I can’t even—-“ It just left a bad taste in my mouth. But whatever, I didn’t unfollow either of their individual accounts, I just chose not to follow this one.
And that was fine, until I saw this fucked up logic that I highlighted in the above post for you all to see.
Let’s get something straight…
THIS. This shit right here is what pisses me off. This is wrong, it’s bullying, and they know it.
~ MommyToAriana: iszz: creamofbutts: I feel kind of bad for people who need to read...
I feel kind of bad for people who need to read baby books, its beyond me how one could not know how to put on a diaper…
Like ladies, gents, dont over think, feed it, dont leave it outside and dont set it on fire and you will be fine.
This actually really…
I chose to opt. out reading the books. I tried but a lot of info was SO out dated. Rather than read books i found multiple groups. I’ve learnt SO MUCH that i would’ve never have thought of. Its important to learn so you can make your life easier!
I read all baby books that i could get my hands on. I found them to be really good reads actually, outdated or not. I knew how to change butts and make bottles etc well before i fell pregnant but i don’t think there is a problem in learning or reading them. At least some people are trying to learn about parenting, rather than just having a kid and doing something wrong.
Alright I wasn’t going to comment on this but really?! I read everything I could get my hands on but it wasnt because I wasnt sure how to put on a diaper - it was because there are so many other things you can read about in baby books and learn from them, things that could benefit your baby and as a parent I wanted to be well prepaired. Learn about baby development, activities for them, food that’s good for them at a certain age etc etc.
And, I’m not supposed to set my baby on fire? Damn.
Seriously, there are so many different type of baby books out there. I needed some for breastfeeding because before I had a child I knew no one who breastfed. Putting on diapers? That’s easy, I’ve been doing that since I was scarcely more than a kid myself. But that doesn’t help you with child development or deciding what activities to do/what stimuli to provide your growing child. There are a lot of good parenting books out there. And for everything from successful breastfeeding to teaching your infant to swim. Also, at least in my case, it’s great in the case that you are making “unconventional” parenting choices because when people question you, you have back up.
For the record, I did not know how to put on a diaper when Sophie was born. I had to ask a nurse to show me how. So there’s that.
