This is me. (Katie)

  • I always thought new mothers who posted tons of pictures of their newborns and kids was boring and kind of obnoxious…now I am one of them and totally a post whore.
  • I sometimes feel bad for my husband, he is super helpful and yet I still do not have as much sex as I should.
  • I never wanted to be a stay at home mother, and it has not changed since I had my wonderful, easy-going son Maximus. I did not shed one tear the first day he went to our nanny, and was actually excited to go back to work. I felt like “Hell effing yeah I really have it all now! A hot husband, great job and a fantastic kid!” Other women look at me crazy but honestly I don’t care…
  • I actually sharted once when I was pregnant when I was at work! Not my best moment.
  • I never wanted to try a natural birth, I walked in at 6 cm and said “Stadol and an epidural please”
  • I love breastfeeding but hate the pump! It is the most wretched thing ever and after six months of that awful thing I am only breastfeeding when home and giving formula when I am at work. I do not feel one ounce of guilt at all.
  • Breastfeeding was one of the hardest things for me in the beginning, I had to have my sons tounge snipped, latching problems, mastitis, thrush and a blocked duct.
  • I could never co-sleep since I am already an insomniac, plus all I kept thinking was “How the hell does sex happen?” with that, there is no TV in my room at all. My philosophy is the room if for two things, good loving and sleep.
  • I did the Cry it Out method and it was the best thing I ever did. My son went from waking up like 3-5 times a night to sleeping through the night. He still wakes up smiling and sleeps better during the day 🙂 Best decision of my life, besides having Max.
  • I did not circumcise my son. I kept thinking, I wouldn’t want someone cutting off part of my clitoris.
  • I actually take advice from my mother, I figure she raised four daughters, is still married, has a great career, and none of us ended up on drugs, on a pole or with loser men so if I can be half the parent my parents were my son will be fine.
  • I didn’t realize how vain I actually am until I got stretch marks and started bawling like a baby.
  • I do not really give a shit how you raise your kid, you want to breast feed, formula feed, cosleep, Cry it out, organic food, crap food, baby led weaning, rice cereal, etc. You are the only person who knows what is good for your child and NOBODY is in your shoes. I have enough on my plate to worry about your stuff, so do not worry about mine.

So that is a little about me, I am so far from perfect but you know what I LOVE MY LIFE…so who cares 🙂

Love my ginger, and little guy!
