Well, I can say for sure what "thing" I haven't had in my mouth since becoming a parent. I'm sure my partner would agree but we will leave that for another discussion. 

 As a new mom, every day is a new experience and when you are dealing with an infant, you are bound to put some things in your mouth that you have never experienced before.

  • Someone else's vomit. Yes, my son has thrown up in my mouth and I can tell you that formula is sour and disgusting. How do these babies drink this shit day in and day out?
  • Pee. I have a baby boy. Enough said.
  • A zipper.  A lock and key. Yes, I have learned to keep my words in my mouth. Between unsolicited advice from people and the daily aggravation my significant other bestows upon me, I have learned to walk away quietly.
  • Cymbalta. Unfortunately, new parenthood blessed me with postpartum depression.  I chose medication as an option of relief.
  • Baby Rice Cereal. THAT SHIT IS GROSS!
  •  Baby fingers and toes. Who hasn't?
  •  Pureed apples, bananas, peaches, and pears. Not too shabby!
  •  Pacifiers. Always on the floor, always covered in pet hair.
  •  Baby drool. Every day, all the time. There is something about a baby's wet, goobery, open mouth kiss.
  •  Baby Mum-Mum biscuits. Seriously people???? I've tasted Milkbones with more flavor than these damn things.
  • Pizza....way too much pizza. Oh, and Chinese Food....way too much Chinese Food. Explain to me how a new mommy can take off the baby weight when you don't have time to cook healthy?
  • Beer, wine, and Rumchata shots. I've become the closet drinker. Gone are the days of social drinker, TJ. I don't go out anymore, so I just drink at home. 

It's official....I am a mommy~TJ

Rumchata? Is that horchata and rum?
P.S. Formula is THE WORST!

11/29/2012 12:33pm

Yes it is and it is YUMMY! (Rumchata not formula)

yeah, those last two for sure! I've eaten more ice cream, pizza, and chips since becoming a mom than EVER I did in college. Of course, the drinking is no where near as much as I would like.

Closet drinker. So there's a name for it? Yeah, I am there too. My friends without kids invite me out all the time. I decline, go home and open a bottle of wine. Someone told me that once I became a mom, I would appreciate wine so much more. She was spot on.

No Doubt! Wine has become my new best friend.

Wine is nature's Xanax.
