I remember, awhile back, before baby days, telling a friend that I needed to drink more water during the day, because I would get thirsty before bed. When she asked why this was a problem, I told her that I didn’t like to hydrate after 7pm because I didn’t like waking up to pee in the middle of the night.
Let’s just stop there. And laugh. As she did. Because, you know, she’s a mom. And waking up a SINGLE time to pee in the night seemed like a pretty laughable inconvenience to her then, as it does to me now.
And now, let’s cry a little. Because gone is the era of the 9-hour, solid gold, sleepful night.

uhhh is that your babies chest clip…at his crotch?
stfustfumumblrs, if you google “maxi-cosi mico carseat,” you’ll see that that’s the proper set up. As he grows, the chest buckle (plastic, right below the yellow pads), will end up going higher across his chest better, while the buckle stays between his legs. Thanks for your concern!
TEEF!!! Is this what “cut” teeth look like, or is the worst yet to come? Lucian was really squirmy last night but I thought it was because we gave him yogurt and he had gas! He hasn’t been cranky at all otherwise… Should I be worried, or did I get lucky???
