Back at School

...and no time to blog!

But in a nutshell:

  • Feeding is going much better although Dylan still needs to be gaining more weight.
  • Nanny is going well for the most part although I wish that English was her first language.  I'm not sure she always understands what I'm asking. : /
  • I quit pumping!!  I'm sad and happy, but trying to focus on the freedom of it all.
  • I'm planning a first birthday party!  Where has the time gone?
  • Teaching is so much harder when you have a child at home.  Wow.  (I also had a child at home last spring, but it was a child who slept all the time and it was the end of the school year...totally different than my big boy who needs real food and daily baths and doesn't stay in one spot.)
  • Oh and I have bedbugs.  FML.  And yes, I did also just tent the house for termites in February.  I'm trying to avoid thinking about clearing out and washing everything in both bedrooms after work today and tomorrow.  Maybe that will make it less painful?  Nope. Not working.
  • And the dog has a cyst or something on her knee.  She had knee surgery the week of the termites.  Hoping this one goes away on its own (am in contact with vet).
So yeah, no time to blog although I literally think about it every single day.  School should settle down in a week or two and hopefully I'll be back at it.


  1. Ugh. I hear you on no time. Working and the older baby really stinks, so hard to find time to feed her solids, play with her, bath her and get her to bed at a reasonable time. We can't get anything else done.

  2. Bedbugs...OMG. We discovered we had bedbugs right after I found out I was pregnant. I think the exterminator was the first person outside of my marriage who knew I was pregnant. Not happy memories.
    I'm interested in this "quit pumping" idea. Are you still nursing outside of work? (Forgive me if this was covered in a previous post.) I'm wondering how my supply or nursing in general would change if I quit pumping at work.

    1. I was never able to nurse. So I'm done done (supply gone). At two pumps a day I was getting about 10 ounces and it quickly dropped to 3-4 with one pump.
