It's ICLW and I haven't updated since Thursday. I officially suck.
Okay, I really don't think I suck. But I sucked at updating daily.
Let's see.... What is there blogworthy to write about?
Thursday - we went out to dinner for Ella's birthday. She picked Red Lobster. For what you ask? "Because I love the macaroni and cheese" she says. Uh-huh. Mac and cheese. At Red Lobster. And what kind of mac-n-cheese do they make at Red Lobster? Yup. Kraft. The classic boxed noodles. So. Our pre-tip total? $97. For a bowl of $0.49 box of kraft macaroni and cheese. I ate a big giant fat lobster tail though. And lots of crab legs. Oh. And I got accidentally drunk on wine. What an awesome mom I am. Take my 5 year old, my 3 1/2 year old and 3 month old baby out to dinner and I get loaded.
Friday - Not much to say. I did go to the evil BRU to buy new bottles for Karl to take to daycare. I send them full of breastmilk, but I have only had small 4 oz bottles and he's drinking 6oz at a time now. And DAMN ... bottles are expensive. I bought Avent 9 oz bottles which cost $18.99 for two. I got 6 bottles all together and 3 sets of 3-6 month nipples. So what was the total there? $68.97 for siz bottles. The worst was I took out 9 perfectly good Avent bottles from Allison's daycare days and had to throw them out because I think it was before the bpa free days. Although Allison is perfectly okay having used them, I couldn't knowingly feed karl from them. LAME.
Vent - Fucking bottle companies and their nipples. I initially got Playtex VentAir for Karl because their nipples were very breast like, but they had too many parts to clean. I didn't realize they had a screw-off bottoms with a little rubber piece inside that. It's the "vent" part, but had I known how exactly it worked, I wouldn't of bought them to begin with. And due to these little holes at the bottom under the rubber piece, it leaked when you shook it. Stupid.
Avent's nipples have a vent thingy in the ring of the nipples themselves, so no other parts. BUT ... they have like 5 different nipples you have to buy - 0 month, 1-3 month, 3-6 month, and either a 6-9 and 9-12 month or just a 6-12 month. Regardless, it's lame. The salesgirl at BRU actually told me to just take a safety pin and poke a hole in the nipples at each milestone. Heh.
Saturday - I went out friday night and got to sleep at 3am, only to have karl wake at 330a and 630a and Tom went to work at 7am (sat hours is a new thing). I also had nightmare~ish sleep and never got REM so I was utterly worthless. I went down for a nap at 2pm and slept until 6p! Whoops. Anywho - nothing blogworthy.
Sunday (today) - Slept until 1030a (bless my awesome husband), took a shower and took the kids out to my parents house. Just got home a bit ago to a perfectly clean house and hubby making dinner. (seriously, how did I score such a man?).
Here is a picture of my dad and karl (karl is the one on the left) ...
