I’ll be completely honest with you friends, it’s been a long time since I’ve felt like a hot/sexy mama, but this morning while sitting at a red light my jam came on the radio and some of THE BEST car dancing choreography anyone has ever seen was born. Then as if my car was feeling … [Read more…]
I didn’t realize at a month old we’d have to have “the talk”. Drinking and taking your pants off all day is one thing, but mullets are another, especially when you take them to extremes. Bald business up front, party in the back is whack. Pull yourself together, Henry. Love, Mom.
Today, today was the worst day known to all parentkind. Woke up to “Mommy….Daddy…..hello?” Which didn’t come from the monitor, but the cutest 2 year old standing in the HALLWAY! Then we took our first trip as a family to the doctor to have our newborn wellness check….we left apologizing for the opera like screaming … [Read more…]
Henry Lance Gustafson was born yesterday at 3:09 pm. He is 8.1 lbs, 20 inches long, and a mini version of his big brother Owen. We are both healthy, tired, hungry…and confused at what to do with our hands. Chris and I are so blessed, and appreciate the love and well wishes.
Today was a fun day with many teachable moments that I will now bestow upon you. 1) When going to breakfast, don’t give your kid creamer…they are liable to get all jacked up and bang things loudly against the table causing others to stare. 2) Creamer is sugar which will cause a shorter nap, thus … [Read more…]
Due to a bad dream I had last night about getting fired I overcompensated with Owen and we played school all day. We sorted noodles, watched Animal Planet from our front window, and read every book we own. When Chris came home we had parent teacher conferences and Owen told him I need continue to … [Read more…]
While I’m loving the heck out of this electrical storm my furry friends do not share the same excitement. To avoid another pet shaming post, Chris and I made very comfortable accommodations for them in the bathroom. We were unaware that they become freakishly strong during storms and can get through the gate therefore, we created … [Read more…]
Congratulations, Owen!! Today he received a daytime emmy for his rendition of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The cliff notes: hated his folks by 8:30, loved them by 10:30, strong dislike by 10:45, over the moon for them by noon, 2:10…WOW, 7:10 unsure…resume in the morning. However, he learned the pool is fun, I … [Read more…]
Dear nap time, I’m sorry I was such a jerk to you as a kid. You work so hard to keep babies quiet so that their mommies can eat gelato and catch up on Jimmy Fallon, and I continuously came to your place of work and screamed profanities and caused a scene. I just wanted … [Read more…]
Man, if only I would have known American Ninja Warrior was going to be in Denver I would have found maternity athletic clothes and ran down there. I guess I’ll stay in the t-shirt and shorts that are holding on for dear life. They are the true ninja warriors!
