6 months in, and…
I no longer think the BundleMe by JJCole is useless. Apparently, all it took was a brutally cold winter to help me realize how incredibly useful that trendy baby item really is. Repeated sub-zero windchill, and a continuously squirming, growing little boy who will not keep a sock/shoe on.
I don’t even look at the stretch marks anymore. Seriously, who the hell cares? If the Earth Angel Mama Baby…

This might make the cut. Might.
Most moms wish for a relaxing day at the spa, a date with their significant other, an uninterrupted hour-long tv show at home, an opportunity to use the bathroom in private.

A humidifier? Skip ahead of me, please.
A version of the common cold – thankfully, limited mostly to nasal congestion – landed in my house earlier this week. My husband tried everything possible to keep the germs away from me and the baby, but that obviously didn’t work out as we’d hoped, what with the explosive sneezing and all. Jeezy and I fought it for four days, but the snotty, sneezy virus caught up with both of us on Wednesday. I…
