Friday 5

It’s Friday! My last Friday as the mom of only one child, next week (come hell or high water) we will have two children. While I am INCREDIBLY ready to be not-pregnant, I’ll admit to some trepidation regarding having two kids (especially so young), but I’m sure it’ll be great. Or at the very least manageable LOL. So for this last solo-mom Friday I’ll share not only my 5 facts about me, but also my 5 things you might want to have for after-birth (yeah…its a thing).

  1. On my side of the family everyone is born on holidays: Mothers day, Fathers Day, Easter, Christmas, Good Friday, you name it. MOST of them were unscheduled – just the way it happened. Everett might be the first who isn’t…we shall see.
  2. I have a terrible fear of ants. You can thank growing up with Texas Fire Ants for that, but every since I was attacked by a colony (300 ant bites to be clear) I have a terrible fear of them. To the point where I pretty much don’t venture into my yard. Even though my husband kills them. And my 3rd favorite animal is now an anteater. I wish we had a pet one.
  3. I have written 3 full length books. You can’t buy any of them, or find them on google, but they exist. One I co-wrote with a friend in college, one I didn’t like when it was done, and one I’ve tried to get published but to no avail. Eventually I might self publish but right now it lives only on my computer. They’re all Paranormal/Fantasy.
  4. I used to water ski competitively. I joke that I should’ve been a mermaid because I feel more at home in a pool/lake/ocean than I do on land (not to mention I’m far more graceful). But I slaloms skied (one 1 through a course) basically from the time I could walk until I was in high school. I even attended a competitive ski school in Louisiana to improve.
  5. I am incredibly not-crafty. I want to be. I feel like I should be. But whatever patience is required to have pretty handwriting, or do chalkboards, or school projects, I don’t have it. I get frustrated and end up speeding through. Sorry kids – looks like you’re own for homework in the future.

 

And as promised the 5 things you want to have for after-birth:

  1. Dermoplast spray. yeah…for..ya know. Trust me – they’ll give you some at the hospital but I went ahead and ordered some off amazon to have when I got home. Glad I did (that’s why its #1).
  2. Large Pads. Before my first kid I was like “omg my period is super light I won’t need those”. Lies. You need them. Potentially longer than you think (I bled for 7 weeks).
  3. Tylenol. What they give you in the hospital is…you guessed it…tylenol. Have more at home. JIC.
  4. Lanisoh Pads. If you’re planning to breastfeed get these ahead of time. Slip them in your bra, throw them away when done. Easy.
  5. All Natural Nipple Cream/Balm. THey’re gonna get dry. They’re potentially gonna crack. And honestly I found that just putting the cream helped them feel better when they were A-OK. Come prepared.

BONUS ITEM: In the case of a natural birth (and potentially bad episiotomy) get a donut. For your sits. I was lucky not to need this the first round (and hopefully won’t this round) but my mom and a few of my friends have had episiotomies gone bad – and then you’ll wish you had one. I bought one JIC and keep it in my bathroom.
