hangry This month's book was Outlander. My other book club we are reading The Underground Railroad. We've also read All the Light We Cannot See, Dark Matter, and Walker Texas Wife. Next month we are reading Ready Player One. For fun, I'm going to read Ella Minnow Pea on my own.
Yay @sarahwithanh! Glad to hear M is home.
tgrimes1980 Wow!! That's a great deal! I'll have to take a peek. We don't need much, but I'd like to get them Easter outfits and Lillian needs a new bathing suit.
sophiegrace I'm sorry. That's not a good feeling at all. Hugs.

sophiegrace I'm sorry that your family is doing that. I totally get where you're coming from and feel that way about C vs my niece/nephew. But your sister should have totally invited you today. Being a mother shouldn't automatically exclude you from doing things.
@sarahwithanh I'm know it's inconvenient but he's sooo cute!
tgrimes1980 If H yells at me for spending too much money, I'm blaming you!

It's a beautiful day out!! C and I just went for a 1.75 mile walk. I feel pretty good. About to eat some falafel for lunch. He should be taking a nap but is playing in his swing instead and won't stop talking.
While we were outside, my neighbors came out and finally met C. I apologized for leaving our porch lights on on Halloween and they laughed because they were wondering what happened until they got our announcement card. I also mentioned that I was going back to work next week and she asked part time or full time. I almost went into the whole thing about how we're building a house next year and I need to be full time to save up for it. Then I realized how awkward to talk about moving. She was talking about our babies playing (she has an 11 month old and 4 year old) and mentioned how she thinks there's another baby in the house behind them. It does make a little sad to move since this is a nice neighborhood and there are a lot of kids here.

Tell YH I'm SAVING you money.
I started looking then panicked because I have no idea what size to buy. I bought a shit ton of 9 month summer clothes from Kohl's for super cheap but like, he's already in 9 month so I might have to exchange it all. I just can't fathom buying him 12 month already! I wish they didn't use months for baby clothes. Can't they just use sizes like diapers?
Sorry for the PNR earlier. It ended up being a busier day than I expected. I took D and met up with my coworker for lunch, then went to the office to say hi to everyone else, then to Target. We were out for 4.5+ hours!
And of course she won't nap when we're out except for whatever quick snoozes she catches in thevcar, so little lady is wiped. I just put her down for a nap and am going to do my workout. Hopefully H will get home at a decent time tonight so we can relax together and catch up.

Thanks ladies, I ate my feelings a bit and am feeling loads better. I'm honestly surprised that hit me so hard. This is nothing new and not really something I should be shocked over. I'll just turn it around into a learning experience on what not to do with my own child(ren).
And I have a feeling whatever bad feelings remain will be well taken care of by all the baby clothes I'm perusing through. Thanks tgrimes1980!!!

Also add me to the can't buy ahead club. Her sizing is all over the place even within the same brand. Yesterday she wore a 6,9, and 12 months piece of clothing and they all fit just fine. I can't imagine what she'll be wearing by winter.
Hi! DH just went out to get PeiWei takeout, and took the threenager with him. #winning
sophiegrace I'm sorry about the wedding planning/dress shopping. That's crappy and I don't blame you for feeling hurt and resentful. I will share with you a Bradley story to make you smile:
Yesterday we were about to head out to the park and B was being kind of whiny. He plopped down on my closet floor and said, "Someone is T-I-D" (said the letters). I asked if he meant, "t-i-R-E-d" And he said yes. I asked if he knew what it meant and he said, "yes, it means someone is tired".
Ruh-Roh. The threenager can spell. Lol.
Also, lately when he's about to do something naughty, he tells me, "mama, don't look at me!" 😂

sophiegrace The sizing issue never gets better in my experience. While Lillian did finally outgrow her 12m stuff, she regularly wears 18m, 24m, 2t, and 3t stuff. The one thing I've noticed is that Koala Baby and Gerber tend to run small. Every other brand has been hit or miss for us. I usually buy at the resale store because then I can see if something will work for her.

We had a surgery consult for O today. We met the surgeon and he recommended we move forward. It's not an "emergency" though so it's scheduled for April 11th. He said it's their most common procedure, it's laparoscopic and out patient. All those things make me feel better but I wish he didn't have to have surgery so young.

I'm so sorry to the ladies already having a hard night. DH is putting Lillian down. It's really late so maybe she'll sleep in tomorrow??
I'm also in a way thankful our brackets already busted. I don't have to agonize over it OR watch the games. The Ls are in 1st in our little group competition, though. Not for long I think. I almost won last year, but no dice.
dashook I remember when I got my BFP last year and no one had introed here yet. And I was so nervous about it I waited until I had my ultrasound and felt less scared. It all feels like a million years ago!
FFFC: I'm so enthralled/ worried by politics in the US right now, that when I get a few minutes I try to catch up on that thread in parenting. L hasn't been giving me much time, he doesn't want to sleep at night, or nap during the day. I'm hoping this is him getting used to co-sleeper and having gas, not the regression because I'm not ready yet! 😫
sophiegrace, that is how I felt about our pregnancy with my IL's. They were happy for us but not overwhelmingly excited. Even now, they aren't chomping at the bit for their next visit. I'm wondering what your relationship with your mom is like versus your sister's with her. Is your mom at a different place financially? Reason being, my mom couldn't participate with my sister and her kids as much because my mom was working and dealing with my sick dad. I on the other hand, have a retired mom with nothing holding her back from being up here for weeks on end. Same mom, different circumstances! With my ILs, DH and I aren't reliant on them at all and never have been but I wonder if L is being passed over because we don't need them the way DH's siblings do. SIL2 is pregnant and I worry L will get lost in the midst of newer baby, they live closer, rely heavily on ILs... heck SIL2 still technically lives with them and her and mil work at the same place. I feel your hurt and am sad you feel that way but am hoping it's more life and circumstances being the difference. Have all the wine!
@sarahwithanh I'm so sorry. Are things any different his morning? Were you able to talk to the actual surgeon?
cheshie6 I'm the same about the politics stuff and I'm not even living in the US! I had to step away a few weeks ago bc it was causing too much stress for me. All my sorries about sleep. I get it, I think we all do. Do what you can to survive and things will change at some point. At least that's what I'm telling myself.
