Not Me Monday

One of my favorite blog authors, MckMama, has decided to host a weekly blog fest called Not Me Monday. Follow along, and check out her blog to figure out how to play!______________________________________________________________

* I did not let Jack chew on a book on the plane (I'm trying to teach him to take care of books) just because he was happy. Why would I do that and risk being inconsistent?

* I definitely was not secretly glad that Jack pitched a full-out fit on the plane to annoy the extremely rude woman we were sitting next to. Not me! That would be awful!

* I did not skip nursing Jack on the plane so as not to further offend said woman (as if simply having a child on a plane isn't offensive enough!), opting instead for the sippy cup. Consequently, this morning I did not wake up with a plugged milk duct and feeling really icky.

* I have not been using disposable diapers all day today, simply because I'm too lazy to fold and stuff the clean cloth dipes in the laundry hamper.

* I did not stay up really late last night catching up on blogs that I couldn't read over the weekend because we had no internet. While Jack was sleeping? That would just be dumb!

and one future "not me"...

* I certainly will not put off enacting our sleep training plan tonight by justifying that will a clogged milk duct, I need Jack to nurse all night as usual.

Ok, seriously, I'm working really hard today to unclog that duct with lots of nursing and pumping so that I can start the sleep plan tonight, and so I can't use that as an excuse. I'm ready for Jack to be sleeping, just not looking forward to the process.

Hickory NC - my sister lived in High Point..... way to get that lady back on the plane - sometimes it feels better to stoop to their levels... bummer!

Good for you for nursing anyway! Man, people get on my nerves with that. It's just a boob for crying out loud. lol

I understand your sleep issues with Jack. I really believe we just have strong willed babies who are harder to "convince" to do things OUR way...sleep just being one of them :) I think the night Eli sleeps through the night I will have anxiety attacks thinking something is wrong!!! Good luck and hope it works well for you guys!

Well, I wish I had some wonderful advice to give you, but Gabby nursed all through out the night until I weaned her at 14 1/2 months. I think that some babies that nurse just get used to having it while they sleep. I'm reading The No Cry Sleep Solution so that maybe I can avoid the all night nursing sessions for this same length of time with Aron. It has some good suggestions, but I havent' tried any yet. Aron has been cutting teeth like a mad man lately and I want to make sure that he's not trying to comfort nurse before I start a plan. I'm sorry I don't have better advice, but I wanted to let you know that I've been there!

Hey, Tori... just saw your comment on my blog and wanted to hop over here. I love MckMama's 'Not Me' posts... so funny. And Jack's an absolute doll... I imagine your days are never boring. :)

I just wanted to say thanks so much for the kind words and prayers. My brother also has a form of spondylitis but is about 500% better than me and can tolerate the meds... I hope the same is true for your dad. It always breaks my heart to think of other people suffering.

Anyway, just wanted to say I appreciate it!
