It’s a SERIOUSLY?! Kinda day

By March 19, 2017 General, parenting rant, Randomness

You know when you make a SERIOUS plan for that day and your goal is to get everything done, and then SURPRISE its 5 O’clock and you got nothing done besides sitting on your butt?? Well If you don’t I’m honestly quit jealous.. or your just not being very truthful. Let me explain.. My list was as follows:
– Gym
– make breakfast
– clean house
– go to my moms house for a bit
– get pig food
– work horses/take 2 month baby pictures
– hubby was going to clean yard

Did any of this happen?? NO. Lets get real.. I woke up at 7:45 plenty of time to have a successful day right?? NOPE. Wrong.. I made my husband coffee, sat on my bottom, watched a movie with hubby, coddled fussy child, sat on my bottom some more, watched some tv, and then realized it was already 2:15 pm. Well there goes the gym (closes at 3 on Saturdays). Then We decide to in order to get the rest of the plans done, which included:
-working horses
-dragging the yard
Only one of those got done: as you can see which one. (My husband is being a doll dragging the yard)

My excuse? PARENTHOOD.. Yup.. Our little one screamed bloody murder for over an hour as I tried repeatedly to lay him down while limbo-ing the computer to do something, and ALSO trying to at least clean up the kitchen.. can I say NOPE, NOPE, NOPE. Nehemiah decided my day would end with him in my arms, you guessed it sucking on the boob for comfort. Sooo… for you mom’s/ dad’s out there, have you had one of those SERIOUSLY?! Kind of days.. when time just fly’s by and you don’t know what the heaby jeaby’s happened!? 🙂

Hubby’s Perspective 5 key points he learned during pregnancy

By March 19, 2017 General, Parenting, parenting rant, Pregnancy, Randomness

So.. ur pregnant.. CONGRADULATIONS!! Now lets get real here, often times when the woman gets pregnant hubby/boyfriend/spouse gets put on the back burner.. I know I know.. I mean WE ARE the ones pushing a 7.. no 8.. no 9.. no maybe even 10 pound little one out our whoo hahs so really… I mean REAAALLLLLY does it matter if they’re put to the side a whee bit??

To be honest YES, the man is just as important in this journey as YOU ARE. I mean really you made this little one together didn’t you?? He’s ultimately the one who is going to be they’re threw the random crying sprees and every un-glamorous thing you didn’t even know about (don’t worry I’ll cover that on a later post) so for you guys out there I sat down and asked my Mr. what he didn’t realize would happen during my pregnancy.. SPOILER.. it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be!!

OK.. so in the movies they usually talk about ridiculous vomiting, crazy mood swings, cravings that knock him out of bed at 3 am, lack of sexual interest, and hair loss right?? These are five things he originally expected… But low and behold 5 things he didn’t expect..

1. She didnt wake me up or make me go get her food like I thought she would.. like what you watch in the movies, her cravings were actually pretty manageable.. some of them were still pretty gross though.. like raw onions. (Yes I know quite gross, but for some reason the last trimester I wanted to chomp on that they’re onion.. RAW)
2. NO ONE mentions that your going to fart more.. annnnddd so he was faced with the hard truth of me ripping some major butt puffs that NEITHER of us enjoyed.
3. Another thing no one mentions.. both DURING pregnancy and AFTER, your hormones are raging like crazy, therefore you SWEAT like an olympic athlete which again.. not so fun. can I say EWW?? say hello to 2 showers a day.. XD
4. You know how you watch those preggers movies and the girl is screaming at her husband while stuffing her face with a twinky and then 5 minutes later balling her eyes out begging for forgiveness?? Well According to hubby those movies re dramatized.. Although don’t worry I totally balled my eyes out randomly he said it was not nearly as bad as he was expecting.. Yay me!!

5. Ahhh SEX its what got you into these “Shenanigan’s” Right?? Don’t kid yourself.. its what happens when you do the NAST..AY. Anyways Personally our sex life didnt really change, even when I felt like a beached whale toward the end of pregnancy.. sex was well.. sexay as usual. =)

I will say I feel like the pregnancy was ALOT worse than what he remembers, but I guess that’s to be expected.. as a little secret.. your man’s t-shirts and jackets are WAY more comfortable than your own. 😉

AND as a last thought.. you men out they’re this was my hubby and I’s experience I have to say every pregnancy and individual is different.. but definately expect you shirts and sweaters to be stolen (It’s a comfort thing).. just remember support your boo threw the rough and the great.. It will all be WAY worth it in the end. 🙂

The truth of my pregnancy

By March 17, 2017 Parenting, parenting rant, Pregnancy

Ahhhh Pregnancy, such a beautiful thing right? Everyone talks about how oh your glowing! You look amazing! your not that big! really now??
When lets get real here.. your sweating like a pig, even feel like one, and your hormones are making you snort like one to. Am I right?? Well I’m here to get down to the Nitty Gritty of my pregnancy experience.. here’s how my pregnancy looked..

SPOILER!! I was NOT healthy threw most of my pregnancy.. I mean were honest here right?? well those pregnancy cravings aint no joke!!

My diet mainly consisted of hot cheetos and spicy lays potato chips, but as you can see the first about month I was on a “diet” of ginger ale, ginger snaps, annnnnnnd.. you see there hidden in the basket? Yup!! You guessed it.. MORE Hot Cheetos.

There are so many things people dont tell you when your pregnant. I mean there are the common things.. you know all the jokes about barfing, waddling, and eating pickles with ice cream?

That’s all fine and dandy, but what about the things NO ONE wants to talk about.. such as your boobs are so sore even showering is a struggle, you can count running without peeing on yourself out, or the fact your hormones rule the world and you may cry at those baby clothes you spot at target.. but its alright just BELIEVE ME.. its completely normal.

I will be completely honest, I didnt really enjoy being pregnant. I had about 2 months were I really enjoyed it, and while everyone kept telling me I would miss it when it was done, (so I better enjoy it) my thought was HA! YOUR CRAZY!!

Now that its all done though and my son is almost 2 months now I have to say I DEFINITELY miss feeling his fluttering kicks.

I did have a wonderful pregnancy while also a kinda terrible on if you catch my drift.. despite the tedious wonders of a changing body that included but not limited to: hair falling out, sweating profusely, crying, getting angry, easily winded, and swolen feet.

It also included the miracle of a life my husband and I created which included but wasnt limited to: that first sight of the little blob, the sound of his heart beat, the feeling of his kicks, the intense emotions towards my growing son and my husband.
Lastly the constant support of GOD walking me threw the process… I swear he would tell me “Oh quit your whining, your gonna want another one when you see what I have in store for you.” And lets be honest… he was right.. in fact EVERYONE was.. Pregnancy is a miracle.. and despite the nitty gritty not so glamorous parts.. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.. and a BADASS!! ;D
