An update about Charlie's life at 10 months old.
Visiting New Orleans and our people for the first time since our move to CT 6 months ago.
Dear Charlie, I know I say this every month, but... How the heck are you 8 months old?! Your 1 year birthday is breathing down our necks already, and I can't decide if I should be shouting my joy from the rooftops, or crying on the floor in the back of my closet. I'll probably … Continue reading 8 Month Pook – A Letter to Charlie
Hey friends, Pook here. Just checking in to dish about life right now, because it's great. I started music classes this month, where I continue my attempts to convince everyone that I'm a turd. Momma makes sure I nap and eat immediately before, to no prevail. Nice try, Mom. Swim classes are bad. Ass. … Continue reading 7 Month Pook: An Update from Charlie
I never assumed staying at home with a baby would be easy. But lordy. Staying at home with a baby is hard AF. For real. I've been incredibly fortunate to not only have the ability to have a baby, but also have the opportunity to stay home with this Pook as long as I wanted/needed. I'm really grateful … Continue reading SAHMing and A New Job Sitch
At this point in our lives, nap time is like one of those meteor showers that won't happen again until a billion years from now, or when the stars align and some sort of time travel portal opens, or any other very rare astronomy-related moment in time. Nap time is counted in seconds, and is never … Continue reading How I Celebrate Naptime
Dear Charlie, Tomorrow is a big day for us. We're hitting the town - and you're hanging with the sitter - to celebrate 6 whole months of preventing your demise! We've been in the trenches for months, and it seems we may have finally entered non-infant territory. You're sort of like a little person now, which is … Continue reading 6 Month Pook – A Letter to Charlie
This isn't your typical social media holiday story, people. I'm not going to glitter and icing this up. Our holiday was a shitshow (Fun fact: I've typed "shitshow" enough times on my phone recently that spellcheck now recognizes it as a frequently used word.). To begin, we naively thought we could handle a CT to IN … Continue reading The Arvin Holiday Shitshow
As of the 13th, I've been on the earth for 5 months. We're celebrating by my parents going out for drinks without me. Here are a few facts about life for me these days: I am not underweight. In fact, I weigh 18.8 lbs. I have been called "a big boy" and "butterball" by passersby on … Continue reading 5 Months: An Update from Charlie
Today was the day. I feared it when I found out I was pregnant last year, but assumed I had at least a good couple of years left. Then today, I woke up, looked in the mirror, and realized I look like a mom. Oh. The horror. I should've seen it coming. From my strong new … Continue reading Looking Like Mom
