Rants and Ramblings

It's Wednesday and it's time for another one of the Let Your Blog Shine weekly writing challenges. This week's theme is rants and ramblings.  Well doesn't that just sound like Festivus?  Should I air my grievances?  I'm kidding, but here are some (light hearted) rants and some just silly ramblings from me this week.


Why is it so hard to find jeans that fit??  If they fit my hips and big bootie, they're too loose on other parts of my body.  If they're tighter on other parts of my body, they don't make it up past the hips!  I know I'm not alone in this.  I think I found a perfect pair at Target this week though.  We'll see.

On that front, why does it seem like whatever size I currently am in pants, shoes, shirts, etc is the one that everyone else seems to be as well leading to selections being super picked over?  Does that mean I'm super average?  

I wasn't home when it aired live, so I watched some clips of the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special online and I have to agree with most of what I'd read about it - they could have done so much better.  There were some funny/creative moments (Looking at you JT and Jimmy) but otherwise, yeah.  I'm glad I didn't sit and watch the entire thing.  

It is near impossible to change the diaper of an extremely active toddler during the day.  At night he's too sleepy to notice, but during the day?  It's near impossible.  Dear Oliver - if you would just sit still for five seconds, the whole process would go so much faster, would your cognitive skills hurry up and realize that please? Love, Mom.

Ok enough ranting!  Let's go with some ramblings now!


I know I just ranted about him, but my son is the cutest ever lately and sorry not sorry, I'm going to gush a bit - he learned a new skill over the weekend that melts my heart.  He can sing.  He loves Baa Baa Black Sheep and will sing "Baa, baa, baa" and he also can sing the EIEIO part of Old Macdonald.  There is nothing cuter than a singing toddler.  And the Elmo love has started in my house and while I'm a huge Muppet fan, I used to kind of resist Elmo - but again, my little cold heart melted when my little guy saw Elmo at the store and said "Elbow?"  He also says "Oboe" for Elmo as well, but anyway, I now love Elmo too and I just love that he loves a Muppet, even if it is not one of my favorites!

We're on a bit of a wellness kick at our house as I mentioned in my Weekend recap post because Nate's been wanting to lose back some weight he gained after Ollie was born.  He got himself a fitness tracker and I'm looking at getting a Fitbit too.  Do I need to lose weight?  No, but I want to maintain and as Ollie nurses less he's not going to help me burn calories as much, so I just want to start to be more mindful of how many steps I'm getting, etc.  I'm pretty excited to have the Fitbit and all the data it's going to collect for me!

And that's what I got today.  Anything you want to get off your chest?  Rant away!  Anything you just want share?  Ramble at me!
