Mother Nature is a jerk. Not only does having a baby make you fat, hungry, tired and feel like you have a fish hook in your anus, but it also gives us these amazing post-partum hormones. How easily I'd forgotton about that dark friend that wraps it's arms around me while I'm nursing, gives me severe tunnel vision and tells me I don't need to answer the phone or leave the house ever. At least this round I'm able to recognize the sonofab*tch and try to keep my head above water before drowning in the sea of late night-snaggle vag-scabbing nipple-I can never satisfy my appetite-unshoweredness.
Here's a quick list of some of the things I think about to keep me afloat:
-Ade is so cute
-The soothing effects of Lilo and Stitch
-Completely neglected friends are fast forgiving
-Perfect people are creepy
-All of my siblings are currently absorbed in newborn insanity as well (except Elder Dave)
-I'm getting hardwood floors on Tuesday
-Renesmee is the worst name
-I can survive without chocolate, diet coke, peppers, onions and seafood
-Jenna is my new social bodyguard
-My mom did this 5 times
-Fall is coming!!
-My husband loves The Hills and Gossip Girl more than yours
