Oh NO!!!

Little G has had tummy issues since being born. Cramps up, crys, gas, you get it the whole works. Well last week I tried not drinking any coffee, and guess what, he didn't have any tummy issues...

This does not bode well for me.

I love coffee, LOVE IT, I say! And I might not be able to drink the wonderful stuff until he is weaned... He is 3 months old and since I am going to breastfeed for a full year that makes 9 months with out coffee.

This does not bode well at all.

The things you give up for children...

Wishful thinking

Money is tight... really tight... and I think my daughter is just figuring out that we don't do things because of this special thing called money. This makes me sad. I wish I could give her everything. I wish we could go to the zoo, or the park (you have to pay to park at the parks here! Whats up with that!?), or well, anywhere really. We have recently been going to Chick-fil-A and I have been having a coffee while she has been playing for hours, but really I can only afford that 2 times a week, and really not even that if I am honest with myself...

Of course I am most likely projecting. I probably am just feeling the crunch and being wishful on her part. She probably doesn't know that she is missing out on anything.

Ummmm....

I hate writing a first post. Really I do. What do you write about? It isn't like anyone is reading it anyway, at least until you get some readership and then they go back to the first post to get back story. Well, if you want back story, you are out of luck on this post. Sorry.
