Jonah smelling socks

Jonah has started smelling his socks. I really have no clue where he got this idea. I don't smell socks (I'm pretty sure). Jerry doesn't smell socks. Anyway, pretty cute. sorry the video is sideways, I'm not very smart:)

random thoughts, since nothing is going on

The other day, my husband told me that I looked like an orphan. Granted, I was peeling potato's and was all in my grubbies, but then again, I am always in my grubbies these days. Have I really turned into THAT stay at home mom? It's so sad. My mother taught me better than this. My mother wears lipstick to bed and make-up to the gym. It's just so hard to want to spend time getting ready in the morning (precious time I'd rather spend with Jerry, who is only home 3 hours before he leaves for work and doesn't get home until I'm asleep) just to stay at home all day with my son. Literally, Jerry takes our only car to work, I don't leave the house.

Yet, I can't help but know that spending day after day in my grubbies is not helping the way I've been feeling lately. I've been a little down which is understandable because I don't get post-partum depression, I get pregnancy depression.

I know that I shouldn't be to hard on myself, there is no need to spend hours everyday trying to look perfect, that isn't what I mean. Jerry says he doesn't care how I look and I know he means it. I think it's important to look nice for your husband, but this isn't about him. I have always strived to look nice for myself, not for others. I really don't care what others think about the way I look. Looking nice helps me feel good. Anyway, I'm having a hard time finding a good balance between a complete homeless look and beauty queen.
