keep it to yourself.

oh you
experienced, know it all
mothers out there.
why do you question my parenting skills?
don't you know I've been a mother for about,

13 whole months.
I'm doing the best I can.
My baby is happy and healthy.
She's smart and funny.
She loves to smile and play and laugh.
So what if I let her watch Baby Einstein
while I do homework.

It's not something I do, so I can ignore her
& chat on the phone with my girlfriends.
Sometimes I need her to be entertained so I can write my papers,
do my online tests, shower, ect.
I buy disposable diapers.
Yes, I know they're expensive,
but it's my choice right?
I don't curl her hair when I put it in a pony,

she has barely enough hair to put in a little pony on top of her head
and I don't think she'd sit still enough just quite yet,
it's still cute though.
I warm up her bottles
because she likes them that way.
And let's face it,
I'm a stay-at-home-mommy
with one baby.

I have the time to warm up her bottles
and I
love to.
She gets rocked to sleep every night,
It'll change soon enough.
So what if she's a little spoile

next time,

Keep it to yourself.

Just another
typical day in the life of
Mommy & Avery..

First we play with our hair..

dance to Sesame Street..

and paint our cute little piggies..

She loves to sit in front of the mirror
while I fix her hair
& paint her toe nails.
She even lets them dry.

Apparently I was meant to have a little girly-girl
to do my girly-girl things with.

Who could say no to this innocent
little face??

(she learns from the best)
