5QF ~ July 15

What a week.

I have been on an emotional roller coaster this week. Shouldn't my hormones be back to normal by now?? I'm so tired of this up and down business! I just want to feel normal again.

Hard to believe that Matthew is five weeks old already. He is so precious and squishy and sweet.

Yesterday my mom watched Matthew for me so I could take Sam, Julie and Jordan to the beach. Ian stayed home to work on a web site design contract he has. It was a great day. We swam and laughed and played in the sand while snacking on chips and koolaid.

I even made sure the children put on sunscreen.

Oh yes I did.

I, however, did not. I look like a lobster and my skin feels like it's on fire. Ian coated me with aloe cream last night, but I'll be honest here... I'm in pain this morning! I hate the smell and feel of sunscreen so I never use it on myself.


Enough about my sunburn and hormonal issues! Are you ready for some Five Question Friday fun?

Me too!

Well then, let's go!

1. If you knew your best friend's spouse was cheating on her or him, would you tell her (him)?

I hope to never be in this position, but if I was, I would confront her husband first and let him know I knew, and to give him the option to tell her first. Otherwise, I would find a way to break it to her as gently as I could. It would break her heart but I wouldn't be a friend if I didn't tell her. Could you imagine if she found out years later that I knew all along? Disaster!

2. Soda in a can or a bottle?

I like it in a glass with lots of ice!

3. What do you wash first, hair or body?

I was my hair first, then put conditioner on and while it's doing it's thing, I wash me!

4. What advice would you give to any new mama?

Breathe. Enjoy your baby. This is your child and you will know what is best for him/her. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Ignore criticism or well meaning advice if you need to.

I'd also tell them that tickling a baby's feet does not make them stutter when they are older.

5. What is your best hangover remedy?

Don't drink in the first place!

Back in my party girl days I had this situation all worked out. I'd drink a big glass of milk before going out because I'd heard it would coat my stomach. Whether or not that was true or just a fluke, it worked for me. I'd also take a couple of Tylenol before going to bed and let myself sleep in the next morning. It worked like a charm.

But when you have that one big bender...ain't nuthin' that's going to help you out but time!

That's it for me today. I'm off to get my hair done because I look like one hot mess.

Hope you're having a wonderful Friday!

Head on over to Mama M's blog My Little Life and join in on the fun!



  1. YES! Confront the husband first. That's why I like you so much, you're so wise...and old. ;) They go hand in hand, ya know.

    Wait...tickling baby feet makes them stutter?! I ain't never heard that one before!

  2. Wow, of course I would confront the cheating spouse first. Why didn't I think of that when I wrote my answer? Hope I am never in that situation. btw, never heard about the stuttering thing before either. I can attest that it does not- my kids are fine.

  3. I agree with all you said! Yep, you are wise...don't know about the "old" part though.
    Never heard the stuttering part. Sure hope that isn't true!

  4. I've never heard that if you tickle a baby's feet they will stutter?! I ticked my kids' feet all the time and never had an issue. Must be an old wive's tale.

    So now tell me, which is worse the smell and feel of sunscreen or the sunburn? Cuz' I don't much care for the feel of sunscreen either, but I'll gladly take it over a burn! Especially since the sunscreen I only have to put up with for a day, but the burn lasts several days.

    5 weeks?! Seriously, already? That's so crazy! But he is a little cutie!

  5. I never knew about the tickling babies feet causing stuttering!!! That's crazy! Funny!! Matthew is growing so quickly! Can't believe he's already been here for 5 weeks.
