I finally decided to buy Huggies Little Movers diapers; we’ll see how these work out.
Read more about the diaper saga here.
In my quest for another diaper, I also discovered Pampers Premium Absorbency– has anyone ever used these? They might be next on my list, if the Huggies don’t work out.
Has anyone used Pampers Overnight diapers (or any other overnight diapers for that matter)? So far, I’ve just been using the same diaper day and night; which had been working fine. I’m just curious as to what everyone’s experiences are with the (so many) different diapers out there.
It’s been a little while since my last post. I’ve been keeping busy with my little princess. She’s had a full week, consisting of lots of play dates (and mamma dates) it’s been fun; but I must admit we are pooped.
My little munchkin has 3 teeth; they all sort of came at once (this happened about two weeks ago, but I never wrote about it here) they are all bottom teeth; hubby and I were wondering when she was going to get them in, as many of her little friends (almost all, in fact) already have them. This is so exciting! She looks soooo cute when she smiles!
I’ve been busy planning her Birthday party, and it’s a lot of work. I still haven’t heard from all the guests, I hope all RSVPs will roll in soon; I need a head count! I also haven’t found a cake; I have the exact design that I want, but I need to find a baker who will do it for a reasonable price.
This is an exercise that I would like to do, and I hope that some of you will do it with me. People say when you visualize something it’s easier to achieve it. Well, this is sort of the idea. Where do you see your blog?
“Stay At Home Mom”, what does it mean to you?
Last week, I decided to go, with my precious angel, to this bakery to see about getting a cake made for her upcoming Birthday. Anyway, we were sitting down with the owner/baker/cake designer, looking through pictures of cakes– does anyone else watch Cake Boss ?? I love those cake decorating shows; which is why I know exactly what kind of cake I want for her Birthday. Anyway– back to the point; the man says to me “You stay at home with the baby?” “Are you bored?” I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I was offended by his comment. Am I bored? He obviously has no idea what raising a child and running a home is like. Maybe I am just taking this a little too personally. Anyway, we are not getting the cake from this particular bakery (and I am glad we aren’t) though this isn’t due to the comment he made; it’s due to the fact that it’s too expensive.
Being a stay at home mom is challenging and I think there is a perception by those who haven’t experienced this, that you ‘do nothing’. At least that’s the way I see it. I don’t ‘do nothing’, in fact my days are quite full. Maybe I miss working/my job a lttle bit (I am looking for part-time work, but haven’t found anything yet). I was not happy with the comment this man made.
I would love to hear what other SAHMs have to say. Do you think I’m jaded? I would say maybe I was having a bad day, but still think that’s a sucky thing to say, today– so that can’t be it.
101 Things I wish I had Known; Top Parenting Tips for First Time Moms by Heidi Spurell is an easy read, which is exactly what you need when you have countless diapers to change and a (constantly) hungry little mouth to feed; why that would be your newborn of course!
If you are a first time mother early in your journey through motherhood, and especially if you are an expectant mother, this book is for you. It’s like a girlfriend who is full of little gems of wisdom and none of the attitude. Heidi writes in a straight forward way, using a caring tone she shares immensely useful tips that will make the first few months easier for every first time mother. These tips range from things like following your own instincts to what type of high chair to buy. This is just the kind of book you need, if you’re anything like me. During the first few days home from the hospital I would feel the panic kick in after all the houseguests left and the house quieted down; I literally thought to myself now what do I do with this baby.
After reading this book, you’ll realize that everything really will be okay and that down the road you may actually want to have another little bundle of joy; and you’ll thank Heidi for caring enough to put this little book together.

To win a copy of this eBook please leave a comment below. This contest will be open until April 19th, 2010.
CONTEST CLOSED as of 4-12-10 @ 12:00 midgnight. Thank you for your participation. Congratulations to the contest winner.
I don’t know if anyone who is reading this will agree, but I hope some of you will. I received a response to my previous post, about Mammas at the Academy Awards, indicating that celebrity moms look the way they do because they have personal trainers, nutritionists and stylists; that is true. However, I think that if we put in a little effort we can look good too.
So, I want to challenge moms who are reading this to do something nice for yourselves in the next couple of days. You don’t have to let me, or anyone else, know what it is if you don’t want to; although I would love to read about what people decide to do if you wish to share it.
