Starved Fish

I had several things on my To Do list for yesterday.  I needed to pay bills and get them in the mail, wash the diapers, fold the ever growing pile of clean clothes (I manage to do the laundry with one hand, but folding is annother story), buy groceries, return some things to Target, Feed Trevor's Fish, Write Thank You Notes, Figure out health insurance for Kamrynn, and get gas for Daddy.  I had no help in any of this as daddy was at work.

Here is what happend instead:  I ate a sandwich while Kamrynn screamed in her swing.  Fed Kamrynn, then changed her, then changed her a second time because she wasn't finished when I changed her the first time, put her in her carseat, went to the bathroom while she screamed some more in her carseat, lugged the carseat around the house to keep her quiet while I hunted down my grocery list...found the grocery list in my coat pocket!  Installed the carseat in the 4-runner without the base while Kamrynn screamed at the top of her lungs...I was just about to take her out when she finally calmed down (I was beginning to think she was being pinched or something).  Finally we were off.  We arrive at Target, and rather than dealing with installing the carseat after we were finished, I just took Kamrynn out.  That's when I discovered she had been crying because she had a poopy diaper.  We changed the diaper in the back of the 4-runner... slanted leather seats are not conducive to diaper changes!  We exchanged our items for a baby carier, and off to get the Car from Trevor's work to go put gas in it.  Paid $3.15 for gas, and Kamrynn cried every time the car stopped moving.  Took the car back to Trevor and Kamrynn decided she was hungry.  She took her sweet time eating (falling asleep almost instantly)and even longer burping (we got one small burp out of her).  I changed annother dirty diaper, but got smart this time and opened the very back of the 4-runner where it is flat. While putting her in her seat, she spit up, and I took her out and wipped her off... I just had a spare onsie and didn't want her legs to get cold getting groceries in the carrier so I left her in a stinky outfit.  Finally we were off to get groceries!

Getting groceries was the easiest part of the entire trip!  Kamrynn LOVES the carrier and fell asleep almost as soon as I put her in it.  She cooed a couple times, but other than that I did not hear a peep out of her!  I did find it too difficult to carry the groceries inside with her and she screamed in her swing every time I went outside to get annother bag.  Thankfully daddy came home and helped with the last one! 

Kamrynn ate dinner while we ate a pizza, and actually went to bed at a decent time last night.  The fish starved.  The rest of my list has been added to today's To Do list, and now Kamrynn is hungry.  Bye for now!


  1. Wow! I'm impressed that you are getting ANYTHING off your to do list done. I feel like all I do all day and all night is feed the baby, burp the baby, change baby's diaper, rock her to sleep. My to do list is at least 8 miles long. I just keep reminding myself to savor these moments where she's so dependent on me...even though they're hard:)

  2. Haha! This was the first time I was actually able to accomplish anything besides making dinner (usually spaghetti). It literally took ALL day! I calculated how long I spend feeding and changing her and it's about 8-10hrs/24hour period! This does not include rocking to sleep! No wonder nothing ever gets done! The house is a disaster, and the bath tub has been cleaned once since she's been here!
