Pretty sure I received generic mom cut #4 and not what I asked for but I’m trying to reserve judgement until it’s styled normally. Trying and failing.
Pls let me dye your hair rad colors.

At least in my experience it involves very little sleeping and a whole lot of clinging to the tiniest sliver of bed while a ravenous badger noms all night. I still haven’t quite figured out how something so small can take up so very much bed.

1. I’m going out without Finley tonight and I’m positively giddy about it. It’s not anything very exciting but I’m going to watch a movie at a mama friend’s house but baby-free time is precious these days.
2. Tomorrow I have to go to a wedding shower for my cousin’s cousin (not related to me) and it’s really hard to wish someone well when you just want to scream at both of them to run the other way. He has eight kids with six baby mamas and has spent more time incarcerated than not since his late teens. She once fabricated an entire pregnancy, complete with fake ultrasound pictures and birth story, and only came clean when the grandma was pressuring her to meet the non-existent baby. They currently have two children together and the kids are relatively clean and well-cared for but it’s just not a good idea.
3. Brad started college this summer so hopefully he will have a B.A. in 2018. It’s an interesting commentary on our economy that he is able to make enough money to support a family with only a 12 month certificate (PC/LAN) while I have a bachelor’s degree and would be working to barely pay for daycare if I weren’t a SAHM.
4. Storytime competition is no joke. There is a strict limit of 15 kids and it fills up really quickly. We’re currently 2/6 for our storytime attempts. At least there’s a playtime after storytime ends so it’s not a total waste.
