When I first announced I was pregnant SO many of my friends were uber excited and couldn't wait. "I'm going to spoil that baby rotten", many of them said. Want to know how many I still talk to?? Hm, maybe 5. There are those friends that are still "facebook friends", but are they really friends? Will they really help you out when needed? I highly doubt it.
I've said so many times it makes me sad how I've lost touch with so many of them. 2 of them being my bridesmaids in my wedding. I understand we all are on different wave lengths in our lives, but that doesn't mean you can't stop by for 2 minutes to actually meet Rylee. I'm not asking for them to slit their wrists and give me blood.
Just stop by. Say hey.
I've come to realize that your 'friends' that say they're friends really aren't- at least most of them aren't. When you become a mom you get many new friends. You don't think your friends are going to be that way? Think again. I'm pretty positive 95% of new mamas go through this. You lose some, you gain some.
I'm so lucky to have the people that I do in my life. They are my true friends. For those of you who haven't even met Rylee..screwyou. She's almost 9 months old. Of course as soon as you have the baby everyone rushes over to meet them, but that's it. Hell- most of my friends didn't even do that.
I love, love, love my friends that have stuck around and showed me they really are here to stay. I've gained some awesome mama friends and I'm glad I have women I can relate to- instead of going out and partying 24/7. I'm a mama now. I'm grown. I'm mature. I don't need drama nor do I want it. I'm happy with my drama free life.
With that being said- be prepared to lose friends when you become a mama, but also be prepared to gain some amazing friendships as well.
My life is seriously non stop I feel like! If I'm not taking care of Rylee I'm either cleaning house, running errands or school work. Blah!
Rylee has a little cold. :( It makes me sad. She probably got it from someone during the plane ride- nasty ass things. We went to the doctor today and he just told me to keep her elevated so everything drains out. I wasn't sure how that was going to work- but we came home and I propped her up in the crib and she passed out! She's been sleeping going on 3 hours! We had a rough night with her not being able to breathe that well. She needed this nap & so did I! I just woke up too! :)
We were suppose to go out on the boat this weekend, but if she's not better we're going to have to cancel. :(
We are finally home & I am caught up on everything..for now.
We had so much fun in Chicago!
Rylee was such an angel on the
plane ride there..
She even slept for 30 minutes!
Rylee is trying to undress P
& she's like "wtf girl?!"
We are silly.
On the ferry into the city.
Our MISERABLE day at the zoo! See, Loni & I wanted to go to the waterpark because it was going to be in the high 90s, but the boys did not- so they won & we were miserable. We complained the entire time. It was definitely a day I won't forget. :P I don't think the boys will ever forget either.
