oh my lord it’s been a rough couple of days friends.
let’s see. Someone stole our credit card number and wiped our checking account CLEAN.
Made charges in Paramount California & Cypress Texas. Awesome. Thankfully Bank Of America is amazing and were very helpful in handling the case and getting our money back to us in a decent amount of time.
Internet memes are basically my life so…yeah.
The mastitis has officially taken me down for the count. Had a lovely emergency room visit because I thought my life was ending. Woke up at 5 AM sweating with a fever of 101 degrees but felt like 350 degrees. Taking my antibiotics and praying for a quick recovery. Mix that with major sleep deprivation and really overdoing it at the gym and you have one dead momma.
So so very excited that it is finally fall!!!! Everything about this time of year is amazing. The weather, the food, the clothes, the TV shows. Just watched the premier of scream queens, I’m thinking I’ll like it.
reading Riley ‘Lady & The Tramp’ last night-
“Mommy, can I read it to you now?”
“ok, what is this boy dogs name?”
“ok I’ll call him Chicago”
“ok baby sounds good”
So I know I mentioned in my last post Ella ALWAYS wants to be held. And by like nobody else but me. Literally. She will scream her head off sometimes if mark holds her but the INSTANT I touch her she stops crying. It’s exhausting really. And she never wants to be put down, everyone is like “Ashley you need to let that baby cry it out”, “lay her down and let her scream, she’ll get over it soon”. I’m like alright sure. I lay her down, walk to another room while she screams in agony non stop so loud and so hard that she becomes drenched in sweat, hoarse from screaming and hiccuping. Not “getting over it” by the way. And I’m supposed to just stay calm while she does this for 15 minutes? 30 minutes? An hour? Because she won’t stop. So I pick her up, quickly. And love it. I love holding her and cuddling with her, and even though she wants me 24/7 I secretly love the bond we have. My Riley baby is so big now and soo independent, she cuddles but not a lot and I miss those moments. So I’m enjoying the obsession that Ella has with me because it doesn’t last long! And hey all you moms out there who feel helpless/guilty for “spoiling” your babies by holding them allll the time! If it works for you two then keep it up 🙂 if you have a baby who loves to do her own thing and give you peace, enjoy that too because that’s also amazing let’s be honest.
?????? am I right??????
mark and I were temporarily getting out of the pen tonight for good behavior and have a date night but then he literally had a freak allergic reaction to something, not sure what. Probably me. Has welts and hives all over his body & had to go to urgent care.
So we ordered pizza, lathered him up in Benadryl cream, got his steroids in him and piled up in the bed. Better luck next time date night. ??
Pray for us, we are gonna need it.
