losing my hair

Yep, it's true. I'm losing my hair by the gobs.
Showering use to be one of my favorite times of the day. Now I dread jumping in because I'm standing them trying to push my hair back into my head. It's a freakshow.
Course this is normal. After having a baby your body has to get rid of all the hair that you didn't lose during pregnancy. Forgot that you were losing your hair daily before pregnancy didn't you?!. Well it's catching up now. Losing it by the handfuls isn't fun but I do delight in the weight being lifted from my neck. Guess it's bitter sweet.
On the hair note I was wondering, do you think it's insane to color your hair pink now that your a mom? Does that make us less of a good mom because we like to dye our hair freaky colors?

I'm not thinking of dying my hair anything crazy like pink (plus my hair is already red) but I was at the store yesterday and these older ladies were just being a little stereotypical about the mom with the cool colored hair and a baby in the basket.
Maybe I'll get me a pink wig...
happy tuesday!

blog revamp

It's time to revamp my blog. It's outdated now that baby is here and life has changed so much (for the better!).
Looking to see if someone could spice up my blog a little. Make it more 'baby friendly'. But still keeping fashion incorporated.
It's a tall order but I need my life spilled out on this blog. I want to make this a place where other new parents can come laugh, get inspired and maybe take something with them. I like to know that I'm not the only new mommy whose done some silly things, has a million fears or baby talks for a living.
If you know someone who would be up to the challenge, please comment their link below :)
New adventures are in store!

mid 20s crisis

I see the future of my blog heading into baby central. With fashion too of course (planning a fashion post on Friday so don't go anywhere).
I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm having a mid-life (in my 20s) crisis. That's right, a mid 20s crisis is what I'm calling it.
I've found myself wanting to stay at home with my child, wanting to go to work to incorporate some adult conversation into my life and wanting to start a million and a half hobbies because I want to stay creative. I'm a an impasse and have no idea what I'm doing anymore lol.
Of course I have a plan for now until I figure out what I'm really going to do. But this mid 20s crisis is really starting to consume my thoughts. Before baby I KNEW that I was going to be a successful full-time working woman. I had a dream that I was going to be respected and sought after for my talents and ambitions. And that I was to going to the top and staying there until God took me home.
I even had a dream plan for when I was going to have kids: take my time for maternity leave, return to work and be a mommy in the evenings and weekends.
Now...everything has changed. Guess my dreams kind of wisped out the bottle I was holding them in.

My thinking, my dreams, my passions. Everything. Maybe because this is all still new to me I'm being a little dramatic. But at the moment, this is where I am. I want to be a full time mom without being a full time mom. Make sense? lol.
Did your thinking and world go into crisis mode too when you had your first child?
My conclusion: I need a new dream.

do you run a daycare??

Does anyone else's house look like they run a daycare? A messy, crazy and slightly dysfunctional daycare?
This is my life now lol. No matter how many times I pick things up, move them out of my living room or put them away, they always seem to find themselves right smack in the middle of my living room again. This is crazy. And a bit joyful. Reminds me that someone else runs my world now lol.
To all the new dysfunctional living room mommys out there, I salute you. It takes a lot to be this impossible lol.
happy wednesday!

just going to pick it up here...

I know I have been away too long to just jump right back into blogging. But guess what, that's exactly what I'm going to do.
Course I will give you a little update of what's happened since I last blogged:
It's the best thing ever!
But of course my ENTIRE life has changed. And I don't know why people always say that like it's a negative thing. I love it. Think it's one of the best things that has ever happened to me. So whenever someone asks me if their life will change when they have a baby I am going to respond ABSOULTELY. But for the better!
More to come :)
happy tuesday my wonderful readers you :)
