> I'm so so bummed that Wegman's stopped carrying their little "candy cup ice cream sundaes", or that's what I called them. They were little cups of awesome... vanilla ice cream, fudge, peanut butter topping, and Reese's pieces. Of course, they were 400 calories and I always wanted more, but still I ate one almost nightly and could barely wait for prime time TV once the kids were in bed to indulge myself.
> Running with your hair down, why? I know I've previously listed this as a pet peeve, so excuse me if it's coming across snarky, I'm actually wondering why? I see women almost daily out on runs with their hair flowing behind them like they are Baywatch. Isn't it annoying and bothersome? I'm genuinely wondering, it'd drive me insane! Does anyone do this? Why?
> Grinding. No, not a bunch of pre-teens at a school dance (although I'm sure they've all moved on to twerking... or is that so 2013? - God, I hope!), but my baby's teeth. Kenley is in the midst of cutting her front teeth, but already has the incisors to the side and three teeth on the bottom. For the last week, she's been non-stop grinding her bottom teeth on the top right incisor and it's the worst noise in the world. They only way she stops is if I shove a paci in her mouth, which I try to reserve for sleeping or public meltdowns, but my, please tell me how to make it stop!
> Probably about to get my blogger card revoked, but there will be no matching halloween jammies in this house. Christmas jammies, definitely, but I just can't bring myself to buy two sets of jammies that I'll feel guilty using after Halloween. I know that's ridiculous, but considering Ashlynn still fits in a lot of her clothes from last Fall, I'd rather buy things that will outlast the season. One income family problems? Maybe. Or just too obsessive compulsive to see pumpkins and ghosts in November. That said, I'm on the hunt for the perfect Christmas morning set.
> Related. I'm a rule follower. For example, if my pediatrician recommends something and it goes against my mommy gut (say related to introducing solids), I have a hard inner battle of wills. Typically, I'll follow my gut, it's the most important thing in this journey of motherhood after all, but man do I get mommy guilt of not toeing the line. Anyone else hate breaking rules?
> Party Time. Kenley's First Birthday is quickly approaching, not sure how or why that is happening, but it is. Second child syndrome is kicking in, and we'll be having a much smaller affair than we did for Ashlynn's First, not to mention the time of year is always hard getting people together. I'll definitely be sharing some of my plans here, but for now, follow my pinterest party board for all my Teddy Bear Picnic inspiration.
