Ten Truths.

In an effort to mix things up + keep things real (although I think I already do a pretty good job of that), today I'm sharing some random truths.  Confessions, if you will...

1.)  Last Friday night, Ellie ate her dinner while sitting in the kitchen sink full of water.  That's what she wanted to do and I had already fought many battles that day, I wasn't about to fight another.  The fact that she was eating was good enough for me.  Yes, that totally counted as her bath that night.  Also, here she is snacking on the kitchen table for the same reason I just mentioned.  Why she is so against sitting in her high chair, I will probably never know.


2.)  Ellie is super sweet.  She's also super strong-willed.  Judging by her current reaction when we tell her "no", I'm a little afraid to see how she is when she hits the "terrible twos".  Although, I've heard that three years old is actually worse than two years old.  So if three is worse than two and two is worse than one, I think we're going to have our hands full with this one. ;)

3.)  After having one child, I am fairly certain I want three.  Two seems like not enough and four wouldn't fit in a regular car with two adults.  Seems pretty logical, yes?

4.)  It made me stupid happy to see how excited Ellie was when she woke up and saw I had painted her piggies pink while she was napping.  I'm sure I will love having a boy if we do end up with one someday, but I love, love, love having a girl.

5.)  I've spent a pretty ridiculous amount of time thinking about Halloween costumes already.

6.)  My phone screen that I got replaced a few weeks ago after being shattered for months is already broken again.  The most frustrating part?  The front-facing camera is cracked so Snapchat puppy faces just aren't the same anymore.

7.)  It's a pretty constant battle between ice cream because YOLO and salads... well, because YOLO.  I frequently eat both.  Everything in moderation??

8.) Ellie is fearless, which is completely terrifying.  Since she is so fearless, she gets hurt frequently and always has some kind of bruise or other boo-boo.  The other day, she hit her chin on the corner of Tyler's desk and started crying.  After listening to her whine for the previous two and a half hours, it was the straw that broke the camel's back and I started crying too.  As soon as she saw me, she stopped crying, wiped the tears off my face and gave me a kiss.  It was the sweetest and most heartbreaking thing all at once.  Cue more tears.

9.)  My house looks like I didn't vacuum it within thirty minutes of vacuuming it every. single. time.  So many crumbs, so much cat fur.

10.)  I took a nap with Ells today and it was the best thing ever.  I don't remember the last time I did that and I should probably do it more often.  Nothing got crossed off my endless to-do list during that time, but I got extra snuggles + we both felt refreshed afterwards.

Sometimes it can be easy to feel alone in these types of things, so if you have a confession (or a few),  I'd love to hear! ;)  Hope you enjoyed some Tuesday night randomness!

  3. #3!!! Was pretty positive we wanted two but now after two...three is sounding perfect ;) Also my confession-- Can't wait to get the hell out of here and back to civilization. I've never been more excited to wake my horribly overtired kids up at 4am and throw them on a plane ;) <3

  4. 3. After my pregnancy, delivery, and recovery I was done after having 1 baby. But then they smile, and belly laugh, and give kisses, and shovel meatballs in their mouth, and you think GIVE ME ALL THE BABIES.

    8. Lola is fearless at 9 months old. She is ALL her daddys blood. Will most likely be on a skate board on her 1st birthday. And I'm TERRIFIED.

    9. I thought not having much carpet would be a breeze for cleaning, ugh, my floor (especially under the high chair) is SO sticky. Invest in a house cleaner! She's worth EVERY penny and I wish I could afford her to come twice a week!

    1. I really can't complain too much about my pregnancy. My delivery was super quick, but not at all what I was expecting! A c-section is definitely not on my bucket list... I would rather have stitches still holding things together down there six weeks postpartum again. Not fun but so worth it. Ellie is just like her daddy in that way too! And yes, the floor under the high chair is always disgusting. Food gets EVERYWHERE!
