Day Care Shopping

Have I mentioned that I’m going to be an aunt? My brother and sister-in-law are having a baby, and I am beyond excited! They’re currently shopping for day care. My sister-in-law remarked that she visited a place and wasn’t impressed, but she really didn’t know what to expect.

Have I mentioned P was at 3 day cares in her first…

“…But Sometimes I Think I Should Have.”

by RealMomofNJ on August 27, 2012 in Breastfeeding, Parent Stuff

I was washing out my breast pump’s parts the other day in a kitchen at work, when a 50s-ish woman making soup next to me commented, “That looks like a pain.”

“It is,” I replied politely, “but it’s worth it.”

“I didn’t do that with my daughter, but sometimes I think I should have.”

by RealMomofNJ on August 20, 2012 in Products, Top Tens

You’re registering for your baby. The main pre-baby event you’ve been waiting for because it’s going to be super fun, right? Right, if you brought your mom/sister/girlfriend.

Crying Wolf and Product Recalls

by RealMomofNJ on August 18, 2012 in Products

As everyone on the planet has heard, the Bumbo has been recalled again. Mainly because of user error, again, which irritates me, but I digress. Instead of getting me thinking about seatbelts on N’s Bumbo or child safety in general, this media frenzy has got me thinking about how I never pay attention to product recalls. I know…

Pumping at Work Is a Bigger Commitment Than My Marriage

by RealMomofNJ on August 15, 2012 in Breastfeeding, Mom Stuff, Pumping

I survived my first day back to work! Hell, I survived my second and third days, too! Everything is great. Everything except for pumping at work, which is a solid medium.

I’m not going to lie. It’s a bitch. It is completely inconvenient. It’s a ton of setting up then cleaning up, coordination, and time management. It’s like marriage, only…

De-Stink Your Diaper Pail

by RealMomofNJ on August 15, 2012 in Tips

Have you heard the tip to use newspaper to de-stink old tupperware? You fill the offensive plasticware with newspaper, close it up overnight, and bam, the next day it smells like newspaper instead of food funk. A quick wash and it’s nice and fresh instead of gross. The newspaper has absorbed the yucky odors. I’ve tried it. It works.
