So What Wednesday


SO WHAT if.....

  • I only eat the Chex out of a bag of Chex Mix.  I don't like the pretzels or those twisty breadstick things so why waste the calories
  • I've already changed my mind on Jamie's Birthday party 3 times.  I still have 3 more months to decide.....but I *think* we finally decided
  •  At any given time I know exactly how many "followers" I have and get kinda bummed when the number goes down
  • I can't bring myself to cut Jamie's hair.  I know it's just hair.....but he'll look like such a big boy and I can't give up those baby curls just yet
  • I compare Jamie's progress to other blog babies around his age.  He's currently in last place when it comes to crawling and pulling up and this makes the jealous mama bear in me come out even though I know he's still totally in the normal range for making all his milestones
  • I'm already over being a brunette and ready for some highlights again
  • I bitched all winter about the cold and snow......and then bitched the other day about how hot and humid it was.  Seriously though.....triple digits with 1000% humidity the first week of May?  So much for "spring" weather looks like we've moved right into the dog days of summer
  • It's taken me all morning to write this post

I love this post- I do the SAME thing with the chex mix- how funny- so will you do a blog on top babie items for me? Top 10 must haves from 4 months on- I need to know what else to do with the boys- I feel like they are bored- like what equiptment and all of that? I would love it!

Molly said...

Ha! The other Molly beat me.

I can relate to comparing your baby with other blog babies. I did that with Landon and it was a recipe for panic attacks, I tell ya!

This time around I was much more relaxed about what Briggy does. Probably because I don't have as much time to obsess because I'm chasing TWO rowdy boys around all the time :)

I actually prefer the twisty breadstick thingys so maybe you could send me yours?! :)

Hey! I think our boys are only days apart...just fyi, Kaden isn't crawling or pulling up yet! Don't worry! I keep comparing and then realizing that all babies are different. They'll do their own thing. The doc says he's fine (and even ahead) in other areas (waving, pointing, etc.) so they're not concerned. Don't stress about it! :)

That's what I hate about Spring. You look forward to it all Winter only we only get a day or two and then get Summer. It sucks big time. I hate the heat and humidity. I can take a nice breezy 80 degrees but if it's 1% humid, I hate it.

HA! Im so with you on the chex mix or really any snack mix for that matter. I pick and choose - the hubs gets so annoyed because hes just lef with what I didn't want!!

I totally know how you feel about comparing the progress of your child with other's the same age - it's natural!! So many things about being a momma that I had no idea would stress me out..this is def one of them!

It’s summer, I say throw in some highlights! I just did it before vacation and felt 100% better.

No worries on little Jaime. He’ll be catching up to everyone else in no time. That is the one negative about blogging. It can be very easy to stack yourself up against babies, people, etc.

Triple digits!! What the heck is up with that?

Kristen said...

Yay for party planning, can't wait to see what you came up with.

I KNOW I will do the same thing with my baby and other blogger babies...I already do it with my pregnancy. Can she feel the baby move? Is she showing? etc. Ahh..such is life!

Shannon Dew said...

Triple digits???? That's crazy business!!!!!!

Lacey said...

This state doesn't believe in Spring and Fall it's either 100 degrees or there are 8 ft. of snow on the ground. AWESOME!
And I find that comparing my children to other children (blogworld or IRL) only makes me pouty. Jamie's doing great. My oldest was 10+months before he crawled or and pushing a year before he pulled up. Oh...how I miss the immobile days!

Jen Watts said...

who eats the pretzels out of the chex mix anyway?? you crack me up...seriously!

bananas. said...

i do the same thing with those cheez-it mixed snack bags. i ignore everything but the cheez-its. mmm...cheez-its...i miss those things.

jenn said...

Oh dear, please don't stress about Jamie's milestones! Sounds like he is right on track. I know how hard it can be though when you read other mom's posts... my little one is just behind Jamie in age, and he's not crawling or climbing either :) Or rolling over except for like twice. I figure he'll get it eventually, when he wants to!

I'm a picker when it comes to certain things and it drives my hubby nuts. I have favorite color jelly beans, weakness candy, and I like the rye chips in Gardettos and that's it really. I always eat them all first. Love chex mix, especially the cheddar and I like the corn chex better than the rest.
Love this post!

Molly said...

I do the same thing with the chex, holla :)

I used to always compare my kiddos with others when they were younger, it's a mom given, pretty much. Addaline didn't crawl until 10 months, and only walked the week before her 1st birthday.

And this crazy KS weather, gotta love it! Today it's actually pretty darn perfect. I'd take this year round!

You are so funny - I think you would look adorable with highlights, and i am the same way with my nephew, I am always checking in to make sure he is doing the same things as other 2.5 year olds :)

I pick and choose out of the chex mix bag as well!
