Introducing Baby Bernadette… {the REASON for my Blogging Hiatus}

Yes, yes….I know it’s been a while, but hear me out guys! I promise I wasn’t relaxing on a beach somewhere this whole time, or give up blogging. I was simply a bit preoccupied getting ready for a baby to come into this world. There is A LOT to do without my normal functioning body to get it done with. At least two days out of the week were taken up completely with appointments. About a third of each day was spent cleaning, another third researching, and the rest of the time I was catching some major zzz’s.

On my due date, there was no signs of labor. I didn’t have my baby, and I cried probably four times. I was still in great physical condition, and it frustrated me.  Every time she kicked in the last two weeks, I really really wished I could hold that hand or foot that was poking out. Needless to say, I was dying to hold my baby.

Four days after my due date I had a doctors appointment. They asked me if I wanted to be induced or if I wanted to wait. I requested to be induced and was scheduled for 7:30 the next morning. After my appointment I did a lot of errands with my mother which took several hours.

Homemade Nacho Cheese

Homemade Nacho Cheese

The other day the kids were asking for nachos, not just chips and salsa, for their snack. I try to make a little bit more elaborate snacks during the weekends since I have a little more time to work with.

It was one of those lazy Saturdays where everyone got up late and we were eating breakfast at 11 am.  We don’t often get to sleep in like that so it totally throws off our usual schedule. Since breakfast was so late,  I decided to have a heavier snack than usual.

A Whole Bunch of Random #1

You know what I love? Texting my mom. It’s a great time. Even if she says nothing back. I still end up crying because I was laughing so dang hard. SO maybe what I really enjoy is talking to myself and laughing at my own jokes…
