Epic Mommy Failure Moment

Yup! The title says it all. Today was my 2nd biggest Mommy Failure moment. You know what I mean right? Those moments were you can’t possibly face palm yourself hard enough!
My 1st moment was about 2 1/2 years ago. We were about 45 minutes away from home when I realized I had packed Corinne’s formula but no bottle! Since Corinne was only about 4 months at the time this was a huge problem! Oh and of course this revelation came to me as I was frantically digging through the diaper bag and Corinne is screaming her head off. So I feel like the worse Mom ever and immediately start crying, Josh who thank goodness is the yin to my yang in the situations, calms me down and drives us to a nearby Babies R Us. I run inside and by one of the ready to go formula bottles and a pack of nipples. I am in the checkout aisle literally trying to convince myself that Corinne is not going to contract some horrible disease from using an un-sterilized nipple and that the most important thing is that she eats. I get outside to the car where Josh is trying his hardest to entertain her and quickly assemble the bottle and nipple and hand it over to Josh and my starving (practically malnourished) baby and BAM! This Chick didn’t screw the nipple on all the way and the WHOLE thing dumps all over the both of them. To the point Corinne is now choking because it went up her nose! I look over at Josh and he is covered in putrid smelling formula and a baby that is screaming bloody murder. And now I am balling! I usually handle situations like this pretty well but not this time! I literally say down on the ground in the Babies R Us parking lot and cried. I vaguely remember Josh undressing Corinne and getting a 2nd bottle ready but I was too busy crying. Yup, face palm!
We’ve all had these moments right? Parenting is hard, being a Mom is even harder! We all make mistakes but when they involve and effect our children it hits us even harder. At the time I was convinced I was like the worse Mom ever and I was doomed to fail. Now, I can’t stop laughing at myself while I am typing this!
Well fast forward 2 1/2 years and I almost topped myself! What did I do your wondering? Stop by tomorrow to find out!

And it’s only Tuesday!

Today is only Tuesday and this is shaping up to be a fantastic week, where to begin?  My LLC confirmation finally came in the mail, as of September 9, 2012 Labor of Love is an official LLC!  Woo Hoo!  I literally did the happy dance at the mailbox which I’m sure was quite entertaining for my neighbors.  Once I received the paperwork I applied for an EIN which is like your business’s social security number.  Yet another huge step!

I’m so excited to announce the Grand Opening of an amazing new business TULA, Family Enrichment Center!  One of my bestest friends has been working so hard to put this together and has done a remarkable job, I couldn’t be prouder of her!  Please check them out!

I had a great prenatal appointment earlier today.  It’s so much fun to meet new couples and talk babies, bellies and everything else!  Here’s to hoping for a signed contract and being a part of bringing a beautiful baby into this world!

I got my 1st fix on Saturday!  StitchFix that is, ha ha!  I could not have been more excited to open that box.  I liked most of the items in my box but only decided to keep one.  I really like the some of the smaller things.  For example, attached to each clothing item was a tag that had  the item pictured in two different outfits, similar to Polyvore.  Also, each item had a handwritten tag from my stylist!  I have a feeling this company is going to very well.

I perfected my paleo coconut and mint chocolate chip cookies recipe.  We made another batch last week and added 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil this time and the results were amazing!  I wish I had more time (and more funds) to work on my paleo baking.  So many things to do and so little time!

With all of these great accomplishments and fun things going on I can’t help but feel so happy and appreciative.  I’m starting to get a taste of the benefits of all of my hard work and I want more!

So what’s new with everyone else?
