My Mommy Senses are Tingling

Do you ever have those days or even 20161220_012836moments where it feels like you’re a supermom? The past couple of weeks I’ve felt lIke that.

While Jay is going through teething, he has been a completely different baby. Cranky, super clingy, tired, you name it. He has his first four teeth coming in at the same time and he is just so miserable. Well lately my mommy senses have been tingling. I’ve been knowing when he’s hungry or tired without even him crying. It’s more like a little voice telling me I should put him down for a nap, he’s tired, and he does! Same with being hungry. He doesn’t even have to be crying and as soon as I am coming back with a bottle, he’s fussing and reaching for it.

Also tonight he woke up and just kept crying. Before I went in the room I heard that voice telling me I should put him in my bed with me and give him a bottle. He’s out like a light. I don’t know maybe I’m just crazy but I felt like having a good mom bragging moment. I’m also new to this whole parenting thing so everything is just so exciting! But I need to get some sleep because he’ll probably still wake up early and it’s 2am.

Does your baby sleep well? What are some tricks you have to do to get yours asleep? Does your mommy senses tingle too? Let me know in the comments!

Bullet Journal

Soooo… again, I was on a mommy group on Facebook and someone made a post looking for “Bujoers” because she had some questions. Curiosity peaked so I asked “What in the world is a bujoer?!” She responded with “Someone who has a bullet journal. Look on youtube, there’s alot of videos.” AND BOY ARE THERE.

I think I spent half the day yesterday just watching them and now I really want to start one! I think it would be something handy and fun to do everyday. I have nothing to do anyways (minus being a mommy and maid 😉 ) in the terms of being crafty and I think this will really help! I tried making one with the journal I already had but it has lines and was making me mad. Plus I don’t have any fountain pen or those thing sharpie markers. I want to do it right damnit! I’m also worried because I am such a perfectionist when it comes to those types of things and I also tend to procrastinate… ALOT. But as I was watching the videos, I notice these women (and some men!) use them to track their websites/blogs/YouTube channels/Instagram/etc and I think that is really helpful. I’m hoping one day to make this blog known so I think it will really work well for me. Plus to track my progress and watching my blog or Instagram grow would be really cool!

Do you have a bullet journal? Would you have one? Do you like it? Any tips for a newbie? Answer in the comments below!

PinchMe.com

So I recently joined another mom group on Facebook and I saw a post about someone asking sites that offer free samples. I got curious because who doesn’t love free samples? I don’t know how many times I see ads on Facebook claiming they give free samples (I mostly care about baby and personal care samples) and never getting anything! Well as I was scrolling through the comments (being a creep 👀) I saw a comment about PinchMe.com. So I click and scoped it out. This commenter swore on the products she got as samples. I looked around and I have to say I’m impressed. All I had to do was fill out a short profile  (kind of like a survey so they know what to send you) and that was it! Of course now all I have to do is wait but I am excited! Look at the website for yourself and get your free samples today! Because who doesn’t like free stuff?

Can’t Sleep 

So it’s almost 1am and for the life of me I cannot sleep. I was getting tired sitting at the desk so I told everyone I was going to bed… but here I am unable to sleep. Chris is gone for the night to play board games at a friend’s house and baby Jay thankfully has been asleep all night. He had a good dinner of applesauce and mashed up pears at my friends Zeike and Bee’s house. We went over there to have a nachos night and Bee ended up getting sick. So I told Chris to come get us before he left. We got Burger King on the way home and then he left.

I played a few matches on Heroes of the Storm with my friend Jeremy trying to get to 25 games to get the Christmas mount. We got to 14/25 and called it quits until another day. While playing, our friend told us about how her boyfriend broke up with her pretty much because she has PTSD… that’s fucked up. I also have PTSD and when she told me I got so mad. It’s not easy living with it and it’s especially hard when you don’t have a support system for it. Luckily mine isn’t as bad as it was, but it isn’t gone either. I felt so bad for her and hope her ex gets hit by a truck  (kidding, but seriously) I just can’t believe the nerve of some people. While Chris and I have our differences and issues, I’m glad he’s there for me if I need it. He knows to leave me alone if I’m having an episode because one of us can get hurt. And I usually don’t remember them so anything I do or say, I don’t want to regret hurting someone and feeling more like shit. Ya know?

Well anyways. I better put my phone down or I’ll never get sleep. Especially with babykins sleeping and possibly waking up early. Chris has been helping the last couple of mornings with him and since he’s out tonight, I doubt he’ll still be awake. But we’ll see. Good night!

Clickworkers

So I didn’t goto bed like I planned. Instead, I went on Google and went searching for anything I can do while being a SAHM. I really need to get some money of my own and working is just not in the cards. Well I came across this website called Clickworkers. It’s pretty simple also and doesn’t take much time. You click on a job, read the instructions on what to do (most of the work I’ve done is search engines), and you’re done. Takes the most 10 minutes. Click on the link below to check it out or even sign up! I’ve already made 3 bucks in 10 minutes. It’s pretty awesome and so easy to do!

Long Weekend

So I’ve been away for a few days with my friends Bee and Zeike. Originally, I went over there to help with Bee’s daughter’s birthday (who turned 5) but I ended up staying a few more days because I honestly did not want to come home.

The birthday party was a success. Cami got alot of gifts and loved them all. Little Jay got his first taste of cake (just a little bit of icing) and was such a good boy. Later that night after the kids went to sleep, we decided to get drunk on wine. Forgetting that my chemistry has changed, I got really drunk and got really sick. I ended up hugging the porcelain God and I think I even slept in the bathroom for a little bit. Had the worse hangover the next day. Went to Owensboro with Bee to visit her mom and we witnessed an accident as we were going to the gas station. Luckily the kids weren’t in the car. A little old lady tried to run the yellow light that turned red and ended up smashing into another car. Thankfully everyone was ok but it was still scary.

Today was more a chill day. Bee had to work and Zeike went to hang out with a friend so I had the apartment to myself. Jay and myself ended up cuddling in their bed watching The Little Mermaid. He ended up taking a nap on me and I took the opportunity to get something to eat because I was so hungry. When Bee got home, she asked if I wanted to stay another night. Since it was four nights, I decided I needed to go home. Plus I had alot of things to do that I was just pushing off. So here I am on the computer, not cleaning, not doing things I should be doing, and talking to friends in Discord. Jay went to bed at 8pm so I’m hoping he has a good night and stays asleep. He doesn’t have his favorite pacifier with him so sometimes its hard for him to stay asleep but so far, so good. Honestly though, I wish I never had to introduce him to pacifiers because they are HELL. He throws the biggest fit if he doesn’t have his favorite one (the soothies.) He won’t take any other pacifier but those. It’s so irritating.

But I’m going to get off the computer and try to get some sleep. I have alot on my mind that I might post about later.
