June 2010 Recap

Amber Strocel does a monthly recap and has invited others to join in and link up. So here's what I learned in June:

1. I learned that dealing with a sick baby is difficult enough, but dealing with a sick, pukey baby while your husband galivants around Vegas without a care in the world is all about survival, much like climbing the Grouse Grind -if you were to do it over and over for four days straight.

2. I learned that molars can take an excrutiatingly loooooong time to come in.

3. I learned how to make my own laundry detergent, being green and saving green all at the same time!

4. I discovered that I will do just about anything not to see this expression on Lilah's face:

5. I realized that there is part of me that actually looks forward to returning to work.

6. I learned that I can make a mean cupcake.

7. By playing with my new camera, I learned a few things about photography. But I also discovered that I have a lot to learn!

8. I realized that nursing has given me almost constant nipplitis. Note to self: wear thicker bras. Or looser shirts.

9. I realized that Chocolate and I are actually soul mates, and I should never have tried to go on a break from my sweet, sweet loooover. I'll have to find another way to fit back into my work clothes. Or go on a massive shopping spree! (Hmmmm... which one sounds like more fun to you?)

10. I was reminded that I am incredibly lucky to live in Canada and have the luxury of taking an entire year's maternity leave. The past year has been absolutely amazing, and I can't imagine having done it any other way.


  1. I agree about the molars. I don't think Jack's are still fully through. They are just massive bumps under the skin.

  2. Oh, I think almost every single thing you mentioned I have learned at some point in the past!! And i suspect I am going round 2 with the nasty molars now...might explain my almost 2yo's constant crankiness AND her desire to eat only oat baby cereal!

    Mmmm, chocolate. Given the choice between eating chocolate and shopping or not eating chocolate, I say go for the chocolate. And the fun new clothes.

    And boy, does Lilah do a super-sad sad face or what?
