Well, it’s official. We’re moving to Georgia.
Per usual, I’m filled with a mix of emotions. Anxiety, excitement, hope, and sorrow. I’m exhausted with Missouri but I still love my people. This move is just what our little family needs. Closer to family, closer to better hospitals, closer to better schools, and closer to a better environment for Critter.
We’ve been cloth diapering the entire trip! We’ve been here for three days so far and, thanks to my wonderful aunt and uncle, have had a pretty easy time of things! At first we thought it was going to be a big hassle but as we got into the swing of things, we realized that our fears were unfounded. They’re letting us wash the pre-folds, covers, and soakers in their washer and because we use those nifty disposable (biodegradable) liners, there is no rinsing involved! Critter’s heiny is cute, rash-free, and hassle-free!
We’re going to The World of Coca Cola tomorrow after the family gets home from church. I have to admit that I’m pretty excited! Today The Maternal Trio and Critter went house hunting and found ourselves inside a run-of-the-mill Burger King. We went to get our drinks and found a Coke machine! It’s this nifty piece of equipment that combines just about any kind of drink you could want! Well I love vanilla Coke and haven’t been able to drink it for about three weeks because of my poor sleepless Critter. I found the Holy Grail of breastfeeding treats!
Diet Caffeine-Free VANILLA COKE!
I was in hog heaven!
I know it’s not the healthiest thing for a nursing mother to consuming but since my caffeine fast I’ve felt so confined within the constraints of Critter’s tummy. I drank two of them… large. One right after the other. And it was delicious!
The hour is late and Critter needs nom-noms so I bid you adieu.
Until next time.
