Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
My hubby and I are both first borns too, so we probably do that over-achiever vibe all over our kids also… but, hey, therapy is TRENDY! They’ll be so cool when they’re paying for hours of “my parents put so much pressure on me to succeed” someday.
I found the jump from 1 kid to 2 a challenge, but once I nailed the logistics of how long things took to do, it was fine. You’ll be fine, really… I promise.
The initial “new baby” will of course change the family, but the deeper meaning you’re talking about…will come gradually. Evolution of a family takes time, just as it did with the addition of your first child. Our family is still evolving into what it will become, and each “addition” has added something unique. It’s a great feeling, and I’m sure you’ll embrace change just as much as we have.
Look at your little family thus far…you have a great track record!
Your little coffee bean is very lucky. He will be born into a family who is excited to have him and will love him to pieces.
it’s fun being anal….i like it here.
He will be happy to have you. Who wouldn’t?
If LB is a bossy big sister like my girl, then she’s gonna LOVE helping you with her baby brother and he’s going to absolutely adore her and think she’s the coolest kid on the planet.
All you need is love, babe. All you need is love.
(and chocolate and wine)
Keep an eye on LB..cause fah reals..Maddox is just over a week old and Calix is doing that jealousy thing and likes to try to throw shit at him. Poor kid..all he wants to do is sleep and he’s got his big brother trying to take him out.
Adjusting to the 2nd’s a bit hard..but it’s getting so much better. You’ll do just fine! He’s a very lucky baby to have a family like yours to come home to.
He and y’all will do just fine! The rebel in my family growing up was my younger sister… who snuck off to drink, smoke cigars, etc. But then she went on to get a PhD in applied math.
Don’t worry! The role he assumes in the family doesn’t determine his lot in life… and y’all will be welcoming him with loving arms. That’s what makes it work!
Great post there, Fling. He’ll fit in perfectly, and soon, you’ll be wondering what life was like without him.
You are a freakin crack up! Just Relax and enjoy your pregnancy-he’s going to turn out however he wants to, whether you like it or not unfortunately. I think you’ve learned how to be a terrific mom already and thats all you need to do. So keep up the good work and grow that baby boy! Quit worrying so much-you might turn grey before he gets here!
I loved that. The mystery of wondering what type of person the newest one would be. He will be wonderful and unique and you won’t be able to imagine your family without him.
Then, he’ll turn 16 and you will want to sell him to savages.
I found my adjustment to #2 was easy - not so sure #1 felt the same way at times. (he was convinced we’d bring him home a little sister, and argued with my husband when informed he had a brother - ah, 3 yr olds!)
Interestingly (or unfortunately, depending on my state of mind), our two are completely different. # 1 was Mr. Good Sleeper, agreeable, easy to deal with from day 1. #2? Not so much any of the above. I like to say he cured me of wanting any more, but I’m only half-serious.
