Inexperience

I got married young. Real young. 19 young. 

I started dating my husband in my junior year of high school. He was a sophomore. He was 15. I was 16. I didn’t even have a license on our first date. (I failed my first try at the test.) We both got rides from our parents.

I have had one first date in my whole life. It was amazing and I will remember it forever. But, only one date. I’ve kissed only a handful of people. I have never been dumped. My husband and I went through some “breaks” during my early college years but it’s not the same.

Blah. I’m lonely and miss my husband.


Thanks to my friend, @mrryanburke for nominating me for the ALS ice bucket challenge. Okay, so now I’ve doused myself with freezing water and donated to the ALS Association. I’m not challenging anyone else but please donate to the cause if you can. If not, please consider volunteering at your local food bank, donating books to your local library, doing something special in your community or for someone abroad or something kind for your fellow human beings. No social media posting required!


On Potty Training

D is down to one pull up a day (usually used if we are going someplace. Just in case) and two diapers (one for nap and one for bedtime).

Granted, he still has his accidents but he’s mostly in underwear all day now.

Is he potty trained? For someone who was always so accomplishment focused, parenting is so frustrating. Parenting is a “process” where nothing ever feels done.

All I can do is do my best as a mom.

what’s up with white boys spitting on the ground so much? do they have salvia glands that produce extra loads of spit?
