confessions.

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Do you ever wonder sometimes if your life is just one giant made-for-TV reality show? Like when you get a little too liberal with the 5 second rule or subtly try to pick a thong wedgie in public?

Ya me neither.

I never think to myself, "could I be on a set of the Truman Show?" as I lob dog poo over the neighbour's fence or bite my baby's toenails because I'm too terrified to use nail clippers.

So what's on my brain when I'm not not thinking that I'm a female version of Jim Carey? Good question...


- Yes I get thong wedgies... please tell me I'm not the only one.

- I use a microwave to heat up Gabe's formula during the day. At night we use a bottle warmer, but that's only because I don't want to wake up Saige {or trudge ALL THE WAY downstairs}. If we had a microwave in the bedroom I'm pretty sure we'd use it for his midnight feeds... hmm that just gave me an idea.

- I love, love, LOVE white shirts but have no, no, NO idea how to keep them from looking dingy after a couple of washes and wears. I think I've tried everything - bleach, line drying, washing in cold water - they always end up looking beyond blah and so I buy more, more, MORE. I'm pretty sure my family of four has 50 or more white shirts waiting on a miracle bleach.

- We've had exactly one day of summer-like weather and I'm already rocking the sunburn. It's not even a 'nice looking' burn that could turn into a redhead tan, it's a better-wear-long-sleeves-for-the-next-few-weeks burn. I must have touched my 'bicep' {ha} after applying sunscreen to the kids because I now have a noticeable white hand print on the upper portion of my right - and very red - arm.

- Please ignore this bullet point if you don't want to read about birth control anxiety. Getting pregnant is NOT an option for us right now ever again and seeing how April was my first month on the nuvaring sans condoms, I've never prayed so hard for my period in my entire life. I'm starting to think that everything is a 'symptom'... I'm hungry = I'm pregnant, I'm tired = I'm pregnant, I'm emotional = I'm pregnant, I want ice cream = I'm pregnant.

- My skin looks like I should be walking the halls of junior high and after typing the above confession I'm thinking it has something to do with being back on birth control? Maybe Trev will be getting the ol' snip-snip after all... vanity comes first.

that's all I got.
well that's not entirely true
that's all I'm willing to share
for now.

I know the inevitable burn will come but am dreading it nonetheless.

thong wedgies=legit problem! I have them occasionally (who am I kidding? alway the time).

We microwaved bottles for my first babies, but Jackson has always been fine with room temperature or even cold formula, seems like it would be totally disgusting but he doesn't seem to mind.

I love your confessions today!

Vanessa said...

I appreciate the candor of this post. It makes me feel like all the things I think about, like picking a wedgie in public aren't crazy afterall. Thank you!

emily said...

I loved the nuvaring! It was perfect for my forgetful self!!

I always get crazy "suntan" lines too from random spots of sunscreen. Glad I'm not alone!

Sandra Kohlmann said...

I was lucky that my girls never really cared about their bottles being warm. Even now, they don't really like warm milk. Had they needed their bottles warm, I'm sure we would have microwaved them.

You're not the only one praying for a period! I just took a pregnancy test today, because my period is late. I was terrified it would be positive and was grateful that it was negative. Oh, and I didn't tell my husband.

Ashley said...

I look like a greasy teenager with this pimple-covered face. And like you, I am still praying for my period!

One time when I was very young and not smart I used that spray sunscreen, not realizing that I had to RUB IT IN! I had a giant white circle in the middle of my chest surrounded by the reddest red. It was so terrible. I feel your pain.

haha! I can always count on you to make me feel semi-normal #thanks

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

maybe cold formula will be refreshing in the summer heat; I'll have to give it a try

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

my pleasure ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

that's why I made the switch - for someone who didn't want to get pregnant back in the day I sure skipped A LOT of pills... haha - nuvaring = birth control for dummies ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I hope it doesn't come to that... pregnancy tests are expensive.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I know right? I'm pushing 30 enough with the zits already.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

LOL!! I love it!

Tayllar said...

Don't worry thong wedgies happen all the time to me. There is no way to avoid them though! ha! I love how real your blog is! You keep it so true!

ana {bluebirdkisses} said...

um ya! thong wedgies over here too! the only ones that don't do taht for me are the VS lacie ones. i don't know how or why but they work

Brianne G said...

I am curious about this "nuvaring" perhaps a chat date is in order so you can fill me in

Love it...and when my three were babes, I wanted, wished and dreamed for a mini fridge and micro in our bedroom. Go modern mammas!! :)

Analilia said...

I am with you on the BC. I was praying the last month hoping to get my period. It skipped an entire month!! Six tests later and finally my period came (tests were negative.) Whew!

Casey said...

1. I am so happy to be reading posts from you again!
2. We also have just one weekend of nice weather, and I did remember sunscreen, except I missed the little triangle between my thumb and pointer finger and I got burned so bad it has blistered.
3. I also can't keep white shirts clean, but I love new ones.
4. Freaking zits are all over. I like to ruin my middle schoolers day when we talk about puberty and I tell them that the zits never stop.
5. Missed you!

When my kids were tots, I longed for a microwave and mini fridge in our bedroom. I even went as far as planning a spot for the water cooler beside our armoire. I never would've left the room if I didn't have to...and I'm not the least bit ashamed... ;0)
