You know you’re a new mom when…you’re totally drawing a blank on what happened these last 4 days!
I swear, they should come up with a book titled ‘You know you’re a new mom when…’. I would so read that. Maybe I should write it? Would anyone read it? There are some pretty hilarious things that happen, but maybe it’s one of those ‘you had to be there’ things? This post was supposed to be Monday’s but somehow there just aren’t enough hours in the day and all of the sudden, it’s Wednesday.
After much concentration I can remember that on Sunday I drove 40 minutes to my sister’s place to help her get some wedding things checked off the to-do list. Centerpieces, wedding favours and table numbers, check! We did not quite finish the favours, so I drove back on Tuesday to help her finish them. My mom and future bro-in-law came to lend a pair of extra hands as well. Teamwork, FTW! Now that those are done, we can move forward to the next task. It’s really never-ending stuff, this ‘having a wedding’ business. As much as I think it’s lovely, and my own wedding was insanely awesome, a part of me still wishes Big C and I had just gotten married at City Hall and had supper with our immediate family rather than throw the big blow-out that we had. Without sounding too ‘wah wah wah’ I always feel like I’m torn between being a traditionalist and forging my own path.
But I digress!
My sister’s wedding is coming up fast! I have to get myself in gear for this busy month of October. A lot is happening! First up, we have a social to go to on the 11th and then on Sunday the 12th Big C and I are hosting a Thanksgiving Day dinner. I’ll be prepping for that (which I love!) and then on Monday we’ll probably head into the city for another Thanksgiving Day dinner at my mom-in-law’s house. Then the Thursday and Friday before the 18th is Wedding Day prep, prep, prep and rehearsal dinner. Then Saturday is Wedding Day! And then on Sunday my parents are hosting a gift opening. My mind is whirling just typing it all down!
Then we have an almost two week hiatus until the 31st. I can’t wait for Halloween (Samhain), it’s one of my favourite days of the year! I love decorating the house up in spooky decor, adding more autumn inspired things, and dressing in costume. Last year I was pregnant and too exhausted to find a costume (I was severely anemic and could barely get out of bed to go to work, let alone enjoy the holidays) but this year I am ON IT. I think we’ll be dressing up in matching costumes, which is always good for a laugh!
See you next time!
