I've been tagged! Nurse Lochia tagged me, and here are the rules
1. Link to the person who tagged you
2. Post the rules to your blog
3. Write 6 random things about myself
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them
5. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.

1- I am not the mother I thought I would/planned to be. I have mentioned this before. It STILL amazes me, the things I find myself doing, researching and saying. I see the looks in people faces or the tone in their voices when I say things now that contradicted my previous opinion/stance. I usually try and defend myself or explain why/how I have changed. Sometimes, I just throw in a chuckle at laugh at myself because This Woman/Mother is not at all who I had imagined me to be. I like this new woman. I like her alot. I feel calm, I feel Freedom, I feel contentment. These are things I have longed for. I am going to enjoy these feelings for as long as they last.

2- My house is never organized. Now, It is driving me crazy. I was not an overly organized person to begin with but now all i want to do in my spare time is straighten, organize and downsize. My vacuum cleaner was not doing a job to my liking, so I pitched it and got a new one. I have cats, I want the floor clean when I lay a blanket on the floor for my child to lay on. It was driving me insane. (more things to add to the list of what i never cared about before)

3- I wish I had a bigger kitchen. One day I am going to take a picture of our closet sized kitchen (no, I am not exaggerating). It is ridiculous. It makes me so hate cooking because of lack of counter space and cabinet space. My dream home will have a HUGE eat in kitchen

4- I watched the whole series of 90210 from start to finish recently. It was being replayed on the Soap Channel. Every day for 10 months, my tivo recorded 2 episodes a day. ( It just started over again Tuesday - If you are interested) Should I admit that? too late

5- I desperately need new ring tones. I have had the same ones for well over a year and I am tired of listening to them ... taking suggestions
General Ringtone - 1234 Feist
Hubby - The Way I am Ingrid Michaelson

6- In my organizing, cleaning spree, I found and rolled over $350 in change (holy pennies) and took it to the bank.

If you want, Tag you're it.

Wanna see a cute boy? Of course you do.



Just so you don't think he is always happy:
He didn't want to get out of the bathtub ;)

I am soooo glad that, even though you're not who you thought you'd be, you're happy!!!!

Marcy "meg" said...

I love your about me! And my son hates to get in the bathtub not out!

Jen said...

Yes, I want to see a cute boy!

I've moved so many times, and nearly every time my kitchen has gotten nicer. I hated my first one for the very same reasons you said!

I also watched the entire 90210 series from beginning to end. I did it when I was pregnant with LG, every day after work...was so exhausted that I'd veg out on the couch and watch. I'd seen most of it back in the day, but it was interesting to watch it all over again and catch the couple of later seasons that I missed originally.

Love it that you watched the 90210...I just watched one the other night..little man is growing too fast..safor every moment because you will look up one day and he will be starting school..that's what happened to this Momma! have agreat week..Becoming a Mom changes EVERYTHING :)

Oy! Those pics are too cute. It's funny how babies tend to HATE the bath when they are teeny tiny, but once they learn to splash they LOVE it! Sorry He was crying on the way out.

(We have the same towel- I think it's so cute!)

Barb said...

Oh my goodness. SO MAD! Most babies get mad when you get them wet, not when you take them out! haha

i love the pic!!!
we used to have the smallest kitchen adn then we built and almost got another small kitchen. then, our builder friend talked us into doubling the size of it...even though we had to literally empty our savings we did. best decision we ever made.
i can't get over how cute little one is. i want to kiss the computer screen.

Kristin said...

What a beautiful boy!

Katie said...

Visiting from ICLW and he is adorable!!

CappyPrincess said...

Awwwwww he is such a cutie. A belated congratulations to your family on his arrival.

I too wish I had a bigger kitchen. It's hard to rearrange everything just to use the one item that you really can't get rid of because you need it twice a year but have to tuck it away to make space for the things you use 4 times a year... I get it. LOL


Jaymee said...

a boy who wants to stay in the bath, enjoy while it lasts. he is too cute.

hopeful to hateful in 28 days said...

What a cutie!! I am glad your son is bringing you so much joy- my daughter does the same for me!

I've been curious about that Eat, Pray, Love book. I need to read your post on it :)

seriously? said...

Here from ICLW. I did that with 90210 the cycle before the one you did. My hubby used to watch it with me sometimes!

Kim said...

I know, a baby really changes you in so many ways that you could have never imagined before. I look at everything differently! Great pics - he is so handsome! Go to, tons of ringtones! I wish I had the time to watch all the episodes!I may have to record them!

dmarie said...

He's a seriously adorable baby!
