Q-Tips, Dreams and Diapers

Just a few thoughts for your weekend reading pleasure.

I feel the need to share some of my dreams. Before Baby B, I had weird dreams. Now that I'm all preggo, my dreams are on steroids and get a little more weird each night. Last week I dreamt that 4 baby alligators bit me on my right arm. This past Wednesday night, I dreamt that B re-proposed to me. I had to take off my current wedding band and everything so he could give me a new, very ugly ring. I wanted to say yes but at the same time I wanted to say no because I was dating Channing Tatum on the side and wanted to tell my sister before I lost him. And just recently I had a Star Wars themed cartoon dream. Very strange stuff.

We ran out of Q-Tips about a week ago. My ears are going into withdrawal. Raise your hand if you like the feeling of a cold, wet Q-Tip in your ear!!!

When I wake up at night (which is all too often) I have Tim McGraw's "One Of Those Nights" playing on a loop in my head. Good song, but I can't turn it off.

House hunting still sucks.

We had an OB appointment on Tuesday. Didn't get to see Baby B but did get to hear the tiny little heartbeat. Such a comforting sound.

While at WalMart, I took B down the diaper isle just to have a little fun with him. I showed him the cost of a small pack of diapers (~28 ct) and then explained that a newborn is going to have 10 or more diaper changes PER DAY. I think he pooped himself a little. When I got home, I looked up the diaper guide on Babies R Us' website. It's a great little spread sheet that explains how many value packs of diapers you should buy in each size to keep you covered for the first year. I then ran the numbers and figured out that we would be spending $967.78 in the first year on diapers alone. Babies don't potty train until 2 years old so we would have to probably double that number just to cover the baby's "diaper lifetime". Needless to say, I think I finally have him on board with cloth diapers. Much cheaper in the long run and really not as much of a hassle as everyone thinks. 

That's all for now! See you again on Monday for Week 13!

  1. I love hearing about your dreams! I would not have wanted to wake up during the Channing Tatum dream though ;-)
