Weekly Reads 25.01.13

This has been a tough week. Baby girl has been SUCKING at sleep. She’s never been great, though I thought we were making some headway, alas, No. Worst of all? The ‘man cold’ has found it’s way to my house. Please help me God. I love you hunny πŸ˜‰

Because I love them, first some funny search terms for you:

  • can i give my friend 25 million dollars? (Yes, I will gladly send you my address)
  • how to decorate your own house like a gingerbread house (Umm… Whyyyyy?)
  • frugal strippers (I’m sort of dumbfounded by this one…)

Given that this was such a busy week I was a little lazy on the blog reading/commenting and as I’ve said before, I don’t recommend posts unless I’ve read and enjoyed them but here a few I did manage to squeeze in. Enjoy!

”See” you on Monday!


  1. Sorry it has been a tough week Catherine. It must be going around because our little one has been thinking it’s party time WAY too early in the morning the last week or so. Added to that I have been sick, so I am looking forward to hopefully get some down time this weekend. Thanks for the mention!

  2. Man cold is a serious thing that shouldn’t be taken lightly πŸ˜›

    I was hoping they got better at sleeping as they got older, now i’m starting to think I might have been dreaming πŸ™ Surely it can’t be any worse than this?

      You still have a teeny tiny baby!! They have needs that have to be addressed….by 7months she’s not hungry, or cold, or need a diaper change she just wants mommy.

  3. Hope your weekend is better! πŸ™‚

  5. Sorry to hear about the lack of sleep. I know what you feel like. I haven’t slept enough in over 2 weeks. It will come crashing down soon.

  6. Sorry to hear you are having a tough week Catherine. I remember when our youngest was that age and having to deal with colds, luckily my in-laws would come to our rescue when we needed help. Hope next week is better for you and your family!

      it’s my husband who’s sick, not my daughter so I have two children to take care of πŸ˜‰ He has however informed me that a ”man cold” is real thing and that men experience more discomfort when sick than women…he’s lucky I love him.

  7. Thanks for the great list of posts. I hope you feel better. It;s something that’s going around. I have heard the same thing from 3 others. Get well

  8. Frugal Strippers? That might be an oxymoron. Sorry to hear about the baby. I don’t have kids yet so I don’t have any advice. I enjoyed Club Thrifty’s post too πŸ™‚

  9. Yes, the man cold: the most serious of all inflictions. That won’t change either, Catherine, not even after 16+ years of marriage. :-). What worked as far as sleeping with all of our 4 babies was waking them every 3 hrs during the day, regardless, to feed. Then at night we’d let them sleep, or if they woke, we tried to rock them back to sleep instead of feeding them. Might work for your little one?

      That’s what I’m starting to do now, I’m a little worried about my supply dropping but I’m sure it’ll even out after a few days. I’ve slowly been feeding a little less at night.
