Angry Girlfriend

I'm not really angry and I'm no longer a girlfriend. Interested in French Bulldogs, manicures, seasonally themed candy, husbands and ruminations on reality TV? Then you came to the right place!

Has anyone used care.com to find a babysitter? We are planning a long weekend in Southampton with family and there is one dinner out that I’d like to attend. Normally I wouldn’t leave MGIII with a stranger, but he’ll already be asleep, and it seems like using a site like care.com would be a good way to find a reliable sitter—I’m assuming they do background checks and such.

ALTERNATIVELY—does anyone know of a great sitter in the area? Someone that you may have used before? This seems like a long shot, but worth throwing out there!

Just picking up all of the sneakers left scattered about the apartment. We seem to be missing a tiny Nike.

Today is the first day of whole milk instead of formula. My pediatrician said to do it cold turkey and I was so nervous that there would be days of transitioning and pleading him to eat. To my surprise and relief, he took it totally in stride! Not even a weird face or moment of hesitation.

Next up: transition out of the bottle. Maybe that will be just as seamless??

Yesterday we took a walk around the neighborhood and ended up at the beach trying to eat pebbles.

buildingaladder asked: Do you guts actually call MGIII "em gee three" out loud, because that is totally what I say in my head every time I read a post and I think it is suuuuuper cute - as is MGIII himself, obvi.

We don’t really call him MGIII—we call him Michael, Baby Michael, Mikey, Baby Mike. But we REFER to him as MGII because he is basically the 4th Michael in my immediate family (husband, father-in-law, brother-in-law) and it gets super confusing. For example, if I am talking to my mom on the phone and she asks what I did that day, I would say “MGIII and I went to the park”. I also write his name that way—like if I sign a card, I’ll sign it from Victoria, Michael and MGIII. 

I hope that he thinks it’s a cook nickname when he gets older, because now I’m stuck with it!
