You know what I don’t love?




You people act like it’s fun, but I don’t get it. You get blazing hot in the sun, which is so bright you need glasses to protect your eyes. Then, just when your skin feels like it’s going to melt off your bones, you jump in a pool of cold water, and you laugh and call this vacation.

You know what’s vacation?

Staying in a temperature regulated room and sleeping, then waking up to be fed before going back to sleep. That’s fun.

Staying cozy against your mom’s chest.



That’s fun. That’s a vacation.

If you aren’t doing those things, then you aren’t on vacation.

All this to say – I didn’t enjoy my first dip in the pool. And I let the family unit know just how not fun that experience was for me.

31DaysmdThis month, I’m linking up with The Nester for this 31 Day series as I survive the newborn haze of sleepless nights, endless nursing, and squeezing in life in twenty minute increments throughout the day. If you want to receive the posts directly in your email inbox, just leave your email address in the box on the sidebar, and subscribe so you don’t miss a post!

I’ll share photos every day, some of them good, and some of them mediocre, because baby leaves me little time to worry about taking and editing the perfect photos.

I’ll also be sharing my daughter’s thoughts, as dictated to me telepathically while she nurses, because she has informed me that she is a mind ninja, and I am merely her portal to the outside world.

Her words, not mine.
