Amazon Prime

I have a love/hate relationship with Amazon Prime.

  • "Free" two-day shipping. Way better than driving to Boise/Ontario for all the (baby) stuff I need.
  • Seriously, what did new moms do without Amazon Prime before it existed? I don't even have to worry about running out of diapers because my diapers are shipped to my house on a subscription service. Can I get my groceries on that plan too, please?
  • Wish lists where I can save things to be purchased later.
  • #1 Bestsellers. If it has that little notation, I'm probably buying it. 
  • Did I mention it is convenient? Let's be honest, online shopping is the best thing that ever happened to people who live in the country. 
  • Free Returns.
  • All the cardboard boxes! Is the burn ban up? Is anyone moving soon?
  • Oh my gosh, if you knew how much I spent on Amazon Prime in the last year, you might fall over. I'm not even going to look.
You best believe I'll be renewing my membership soon!

We Made It

As you may or may not know, MacKenzie has been coming to work with me at Snake River Produce since she was six weeks old. She is now almost seven months old (I really need to do some monthly posts about her and this year... I am slacking). Since she was in the NICU, she has not been away from me for more than four to five hours. We are kind of attached...

Today was New Employee Orientation at SRP and I really couldn't get what I needed done accomplished with my little sidekick so Daddy stepped up to the challenge. I left the house around 7:15 a.m. and did not return until 5:45 p.m. and we made it. We all made it through the day. I never had any doubts, but I did miss my girl! And so did everyone at the office!

Chad reports MacKenzie had a great day - I could have used a "she missed you", but all in all, I am glad she had a fun day and wasn't worried about where her mama was. I know she was in good hands and this is a great transition for us, since she will start going to the babysitters part time coming up soon. I think going from being with mom all the time, to being away from mom, but with dad, to being with a babysitter is a nice gradual shift. We will see how it all shakes out, but MacKenzie is a happy, curious, strong little lady who - for the most part, likes people and I think it will be good for all of us.

I have to say though, I sure was glad to see that cheeky grin when I got home :)

Is Anybody Out There?

I'm thinking about making my blog private. Does anybody care?

What does that mean? It means, if you would like to visit this page, you would need some sort of permission. I don't think it is too complicated to set up. Let me know if you would like access so I can be sure to include you - and I'll need your email address.

Who knew?

A lot of things happen to your body when you go through pregnancy and after giving birth. A lot of those things... I won't go into detail, but if you are really curious - you can Google it. I felt like I was pretty prepared for all the craziness that is post-baby body... but in all the Googling and reading and asking questions... I never expected one thing to be so drastic.

My hair.

It's falling out.

Seriously though, it is everywhere. On the floor, in the drain, in my comb, brushes, in the carpet... all those obvious places. But, it is also in our food, in MacKenzie's hands (all the time), on Chad, and even in diapers. It is bad. Even my hair stylist says it is bad - and you know it is bad if he's agreeing with me! It's supposed to get better... and I sure hope it does!

Growing Girl

Recently, I packed up all of MacKenzie's newborn and 3-month clothes and put them in storage. Honestly, she was really only in newborn outfits for about a... well... like... maybe she wore two or three newborn outfits total? Her 3-month and 3-6 month clothes fit for quite a while and though it is very exciting to see her grow and thrive, it is also sad to pack away all those tiny baby girl clothes! I know it is cliche, but it really does go by so fast!
MacKenzie helped me pack up her clothes :)
