I love being a stay-at-home mom, more than anything. I have never been the type who feels the need to be back out in the world amongst the rest of civilization at a job, I've just never been a go-getter like that. I do, however, love adult conversation. I think I am an extrovert and I have heard other people refer to me as "sanguine" and while at first I thought they were calling names and mispronouncing the technical name for the beloved Arctic bird, I soon realized they were just using some "temperament lingo" and calling me outgoing. "Loads of adult conversation" is not one of the components in the job description of stay-at-home mommery.
I'm also one of those unfortunate people who has a hard time not saying everything I am thinking and who doesn't like lulls in conversation and so fill them up with whatever crap is filling my brain right then. But since no one is here to give me an awkward lull to fill and the web is omnipresent listening ear, and since that's what this blog is for, right? right, here I go.
- How many noodles is too many noodles to give to Lucy to make her happy while I type this? We'll see I guess.
- Where did Lucy's personality some from? In the last 2 days she has transformed from a baby to a border-line toddler. I am currently fearing for my life.
-When oh when does the potty training phase end where the child is constantly waiting until the verylastsplit second until he/she is desperate to get to the facilities, in fact too desperate to actually get there in time? So much waste clean up, so so much.
-How long is too long to spend perusing Twice and thredUP? I am super late to the game with both sites, but am completely sold and have spend at least 27 too minutes on each site and now have carts full on both sites while I discern whether to press the "purchase" button.
- Would I ever divulge to anyone in person (obviously I would via the webs) how many minutes I have thought about what I should wear to the store solo tonight? Probably 10, but still, is that weird? I am just so excited to venture out alone and I want to treat it like I am going out on the town just to make the most of it.
-To straighten or blow dry the hair, that is the question?
-Does this outfit work?
-To straighten, that is the answer.
-What can I throw together for dinner with sour cream, deli meat, frozen chicken and frozen blueberries? I'm thinking a casserole.
-What sorts of bribery and/or smooth talking would need to take place in order to convince Mike to let me go to Jen's and Hallies' little gathering in the summer?
I would go on, but I can hear the deep mouth breathing due to a deep comatose state brought on by intense boredom.
