Linking up again this week with Shannon for another So What Wednesday!
This week I'm saying So What if:
-As much as I love Old Navy I'm very disappointed that two pairs of shoes I bought for Hunter were basically ruined after 1-3 times of being worn. He came home yesterday and literally had a hole in the bottom of a pair of shoes he's only wore a couple times. Guess I need to splurge for sturdier shoes for him.
-The nice weather is making it hard to focus at work, I just want to get home and play outside with my son, not be stuck inside all day long.
-On that same note, I've been wishing lately that I could be a stay at home mom. I've always missed Hunter during the day but now he's at a really fun age and learning so much that it's harder and harder to miss all that he's doing during the day.
-I really did almost cry on Monday when I got the form saying they were going to transition Hunter from the older infants room to the toddler room next week (he has to be 16 months for the toddler room). How is he old enough for that already??
-I'm a bit OCD about having things done at a certain time everyday and when I get thrown off schedule I get annoyed.
-Every year I buy that damn Jergens Daily Tanning lotion in the hopes of getting some color for spring and every year I stop using it after a few days because I can't stand the smell. Even the newer version still stinks to me.
-I've been having baby fever lately. Probably because two years ago this week I found out I was pregnant so I'm feeling sentimental. Not sentimental enough to actually have another one right now though.
-Last night I let my kid play with daddy's old beer bong for a good 10 minutes (while taking pictures of course). It kept him entertained. Mother of the year award right here!

Your SWW posts are really cute. Short, simple and to the point! My son is the same age as yours and I think to myself everyday that I want to be a SAHM. Especially when I am work and realize I don't want to be here and would much rather be at home taking care of my baby and watching him learn. Unfortunately, it's just not an option for us and I'm lucky enough that I have my MIL watching him for us. Also, totally in the same boat with baby fever. I get it, and it goes away, then I get it again. Especially when I read blogs of moms with kids close in age. It's a tough decision, because you wonder if you and your hubby are ready and if your son is ready to be a big brother. But in the end, it all works out. Have a great day!

Chloe is now the oldest baby in her daycare class and the next to be moved to the toddler room. I'll be really sad the day that happens. I know what you mean about wanting to be a stay at home mom now, more than ever. I wouldn't want to stay home full time, but I hate missing all the new things Chloe's learning. I really love this age.

I bought Chase's first pair of shoes from nordstrom for $40. He tripped and pulled one of the stitching out after the first day. We've bought all his shoes at payless since then. His feet grows so fast that it just makes more sense. Yeah they still get trashed but I don't care because they cost like $8.

I hear you about shoes. I find cheaper ones die right away. I recommend Great quality, reduced prices AND free shipping. I just got Taylor a nice pair of puma sneakers and an adorable pair of sandals for $40. I'm hoping they last her the summer.

I tried Jergens Daily Tanning Lotion once but quit after a couple days due to the smell and the fact that it irritated my skin. Whatever -- I'm fine with having porcelain skin all year.

Wow, toddler room! It blows my mind how quickly they seem to be growing up. I don't usually splurge on any clothing or shoes and well, I didn't in this case either, but I got Lids a pair of Stride Rite sneakers on ebay and they are great!! She wears them almost everyday. I've been getting that baby fever lately too.. big time!!!

That Jergens lotion smells so bad! I keep trying it, too, and the smell never improves!
