Confessions from a mother

I have a confession. I used Tylenol when I was pregnant. I also got an epidural when I was in labor. I didn’t have a vaginal birth, I had the dreaded c section. I had my son circumcised. And I vaccinate him too. I also don’t buy all organic because I can’t afford it. He drinks cows milk. I also let him eat sugar, oh and I use Splenda. And I don’t post this all over Facebook, because no one cares. Personally I believe you should vaccinate your children but if you decide not to, that’s the risk you’re taking for your children. I really don’t need to see this all over Facebook. I trust my doctors because they took an oath stating they would practice medicine honestly. Also, I don’t need to see articles written by unreliable sources stating my vaccinated child is not as smart or as healthy as your unvaccinated child. That’s just dumb. And so is this blog! I had to put it out there. Thanks for reading and now you know my deep, dark secrets.

Tyler got a haircut today. How cute! Am I a bad mother for that too?! 🙂

I was running….

Ok maybe I didn’t run per se (I did jog a few times) but I did my first 5k! Let’s just say I was totally unprepared. I’ve been hitting the gym a few times a week but clearly preparation is needed if you want to be successful. I did it more for the cause, and for the exercise. A playground was built in memory of James Mattioli, one of the 26 angels from Sandy Hook. When I heard that there was going to be a 5k I knew I had to participate. I later found out that it was his birthday, and what an awesome way to honor him by dedicating a playground in his memory. I can’t wait to bring Tyler to play on it, and help keep his memory alive. I’m sore today, but happy I didn’t come in last.

1 month into Weight Watchers and I’ve lost 7 1/2 pounds. It’s slowly but surely coming off!

I am so, so, sorry…

Dear Blog,

I am so, so, sorry for neglecting you. How did this happen? Has life gotten in the way once again? I promise you it’ll never happen again. Unfortunately that promise will most likely be broken, but I will definitely do my best to blog more often.

It seems like Birthdays, snow storms and work has made me a hermit but now that Spring is on its way in I’m feeling a little more human. Seriously Spring officially begins in two days and I can’t be happier. I just want warmth on my skin and flip flops on my feet! I’m hoping we get a “real” Spring and not the typical New England Spring where it snows more than it should. We shall see!

I started a new chapter of my life…Weight Watchers. I did this years ago, but I really hated going to meetings. I’m doing it only online and through the iPhone app. I’m on week 3 and the weight is slowly coming off. I look forward to cooking and eating healthy but I’m also able to eat out like a normal person. I’m excited to see the changes, and this is a long time coming. My son is 2, and I’ve made every excuse to justify the fact that I haven’t lost the baby weight. Now’s the time! And if Jessica Simpson can do it, so can I!
