So after my woe is me post yesterday I took the proactive approach to this bug I had acquired. I took a nap with the baby – not with the baby but when he was napping, cant go germin’ up the kid. Anyway, I got a nap, drank tons of water, 96 oz to be exact, and took 4 doses of Zicam. Then, my perfect little child slept, he went to bed nearly an hour early (8:15) woke at 3:45 for a snack and slept until 9:45. All of that and, dudes, Im healed! I have a little bit if a runny nose but my throat and ears are fine. Fine! Incredible.
In boring ways to find/hold onto myself in this mommy gig, I have uncovered another one. So simple! I put away my adorable Petunia Pickle-bottom and got out my older red shoulder bag. I will still use my diaper bag, but when we are just running to the grocery store or Target or wherever I only need a few diapers, wipes and we are set. Now, its not my Coach or my Kate Spade (who remain in the top of my closet, I’m trying to decide if I should e-bay them? By the time I’m done toting diapers I’m sure I will want new ones) But carrying a purse, albeit a little bigger feels better and more stylish than the pickle-bottom. I feel badly about it as it was a well thought out gift but I know it’s days are not nearly over. I just need something easier for the quick errands. So anyway, I like carrying my cheap-o bag. Red makes me happy, right now, its all about the happy.
