Things I'm Loving Friday

I am jumping on the bandwagon for a popular blog feature called "Thing I'm Loving Friday".  Trying to keep it light and positive over here.
So here are the things I am loving right now:
1) Epidurals - If you don't get one, you are certifiably insane.  I had to experience 1.5 hours of contractions 2 minutes apart before they would let me get an epidural.  I have never felt worse pain or sweeter relief in my entire life.
2) Antibiotics - Because pregnancy and labor is like the never ending assault on your body.
3) Sleeping for more than 2 hours at a time...at least, what I remember of it. Sleep, one day we will rekindle our sordid love affair again.  Until that time (many, many years from what I've been told), we can see each other mostly on the weekends and sporadically in the midnight hours.
4) Naps.  For myself if I can get one, but mostly for this guy.  When he finally does nap, he naps hard.  It's not only cute, it's my time to shine.  And by shine, I mean tend to my basic needs as a human...or just watch the Real Housewives of New York City, depending on my energy level.
5)  My mini van.  That car is amazing.  It is like a dance opening the trunk and side doors.  I'll be sad to see it go next week.  But my feelings of douche-bagness will decrease immensely once I get my sedan back.  The van is a ride that only a seasoned mom can pull off.  I'm too new to be able to rock the automatic door and bucket seats at this stage in the game without some major stares.
6) Meal Train.  People bringing you dinner when you barely have the mind capacity to form a sentence is crucial.  But also probably adding to my difficulty to losing the baby weight.  And by probably I mean definitely.  Eating half of an ice cream cake after meatloaf and mashed potatoes can't be good for one's diet.  I long for the days when I can wear normal clothes again.
7) When Jack farts or poops when he's eating or sleep.  Because sometimes it sounds like a machine gun, but it always makes me giggle.   
That is just a glimpse into my super glamorous life right now.  If I'm not covered in pee or milk, I'm driving a mini van with no child in it.  Either way, it's fabulous!

  1. # 7 made me laugh so hard. Grace did that Michael Jackson move about 100 times a day. Gotta love it!
