Jen~ I’ve been wanting to comment on your loosing a few friends when you had DD 1 because you felt judged. I feel the same way with my very BFF. She ALWAYS makes comments that I am crazy and that I am dedicating my life to girls too much. And tells me that she used to drag her kids everywhere with her. My point to her is it is hard enough to deal with one fussy baby, if baby does not get good naps in, but dealing with two fussy babies if we messed up their naps is unbearable. She still thinks I am nuts and that I am taking it too far. Maybe I am but it is sooooo not worth it for me to go out for dinner and mess up girls’ bedtime and they pay for it all night long. Just plain not worth it. I would rather get them into bed and have some peace and quiet. Then DP listens to my BFF and gets into his head that it should be no big deal to go out with two babies. Of course, that is easily cured by us actually going out once and then he remembers for a while why we don’t do it. But very frustrating to be hearing that from BFF. I love that Jessie takes four big bottles a day, must be so nice. My gals are still on pretty much every 3 hours during the day. I am sure Juliet can easily go to 4 hour schedule but Allison just can’t. She just does not eat enough in one sitting.
Karen~ yay for first tooth! Do you still use manual pump? Does it work pretty well? How do you have your hands free for typing, confused… I pumped in the office once on Friday and it was perfectly fine. The room is very clean and private and I brought in my lap. It is still way more convenient to do it at home though.
Sorry for crappy personals… I should be able to get back on later. Another awful feeling day. EVERYTHING is getting to me, I mean EVERYTHING. Even little thing that DP bought skim milk vs 1% (and I normally don’t give a sh!te one way or the other about milk). Work is going OK. I am working from home and had to listen to Allison cry for good 15 minutes while my Mom was trying to put her down for a nap and I couldn’t do anything about it because I was on the conference call.
