SWW

Linking up again this week with Shannon for So What Wednesday!
 
So what if:
 
-When I found out my brother's wedding date (6/7/14) I immediately thought about when would be a good time to possibly get pregnant with a possible baby #2 in relation to the wedding. After all I wouldn't want to be 9 months pregnant at the wedding or dealing with first trimester nausea.
 
-Kristian is still on the "one and done" train yet I'm mentally trying to figure out the timing of baby #2. Guess we should get on the same page with that huh?
 
-I was really nervous when the President and VP of my company invited me to lunch alone with them last week. Turns out they wanted to offer me a promotion and a raise! So no need for nerves after all!
 
-I get RAGEY when I see photos of babies/toddlers not put in their carseats properly. Chest clips go on the chest not the belly! It's really not hard! Also, even though it may be legal to turn them forward facing at a year it doesn't mean it's safer, it's actually recommended and considered to be much safer to keep them rear-facing until 2. Unless there is a serious reason for it (like motion sickness), I don't see why you would turn them early? I try not to be judgey but I admit I do judge that. Sorry Not Sorry!
 
-I was annoyed last night when I found out the All Star game was on instead of So You Think You Can Dance.
 
-I'm constantly checking Twitter for updates on if the royal baby has been born yet. For the record I think it's a girl.
 
-I was actually really sad when I found out about Cory Monteith's death. I'm a fan of Glee and it's just so sad when these young people die needlessly because of drugs.
 
-I've been married for 3 years and still watch wedding shows (my husband does not understand this).

Ha! I'd totally plan the next baby like you did. And I'm with you on the carseat. It's actually a big deal to me to keep them backwards facing until 2 like we did and I hate when I see like 10 months old already turned around!!!

Visiting from SWW. We totally planned baby #2 around our vacation to Jamaica (we had already booked and paid for it - didn't want to have to cancel) but we ended up having our little girl 1 month before moving across the country lol. I was also upset about no SYTYCD last night.

Congrats on your promotion!! It's nice to know your hard work is valued and noticed, right?

And I just want to know the Royal Baby's name. Badly. I bet it's perfect. Nothing like North West.

My brother got married in May and low and behold I was about two weeks pregnant at his wedding and had no idea! I timed that one really well lol

Congrats on your promotion! I am totally on the same boat as you with the car seats. All of my friend's have their kids rear facing way before 2!! And the chest straps- OMG. Total pet-peeve. So what the kid hates it, deal with the crying for their safety! And I totally timed my son to be 1 month after my MBA graduation. haha!

Congrats on your promotions!!!

I agree about carseats - unfortunately we turned Tay around at 19 months b/c she kept vomiting on the way to daycare in the mornings. Once we turned her around and postponed her morning sippy of milk until daycare, we've been puke free.

But if she was healthy, she'd still be rear facing!

It took me 2.5 years after number one to convince my husband that a second would be ok :)

The Girl said...

Actually, you can now keep your child rearfacing until they're almost four years old.

Congrats on your promotion! I'm also really sad about Cory Monteith. It's so pointless for such a talented young star to throw his life away due to drugs.

Fiona said...

Huge congrats on the promotion and raise!! :) Great news!

Congrats on your promotion! I am also stalking the royal baby. It seems like everyone else is obsessed with talking about how little they care about this. Sorry I'm not sorry but I DO care!
