6 Things You Didn’t {Want To} Know About Me

Affiliate Disclosure | in Our Family | by | with 20 Comments

August’s  birthday confessions were lots of fun, so it seems like a lovely idea to christen the new year with some more. Besides there are so many new faces around here I feel like I need to introduce myself. Thanks to all of you who shared yesterday’s post with your friends. That’s exactly what the tipping point is all about!

Shall we begin?

  1. I once (or twice) accidentally squirted my keyboard with breastmilk while trying to nurse and blog
  2. I type with dough on my hands. Often. Actually, the world under my laptop keys probably resembles a combo creamery/bakery. Maybe this post should be retitled 5 awful things  I have done to my laptop.
  3. In order to properly compliment my husband I find it necessary to insult him in some small way first. It’s the only way he’ll take the compliment seriously. Otherwise he says I am too much sunshine and roses. Pft!
  4. I refused to wash Micah’s hair with anything other than water for weeks because I was afraid his baby smell would go away.
  5. Every night I go to bed holding a piece of cheese. Before that it was a hairdryer.
  6. Originally this was supposed to be ten things, but Micah appears to be teething so we were up at 12am, 2am, 4am, 4:20am, 5:20am and 6:30am. My brain is on auto-reboot and I can’t access anything at the moment.

    Like a mouse? Lol. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Drew @ How To Cook Like Your Grandmother says:

    I suspect the underside of your keyboard is more like a combination biology lab / superfund site. I really hope you get that thing professionally cleaned every month or so. Eww.

    So, what’s with the cheese thing?

    • Heather says:

      My husbands says I need a Mac, but I think I need one of those construction-grade laptops that you can drop, spill stuff on and practically blowtorch. What can I say?? I have two little kiddos!

      About the cheese: Thanks to tandem nursing I have a supersonic metabolism. I lose enough sleep waking up to nurse my baby, so extra trips to the fridge are out. Besides, it’s raw cheese, so I’m just letting it culture a little more!

  3. Michelle McCoy says:

    Ok I totally understand the cheese but what was up with the blowdryer? Lol

    • Whittney says:

      No kidding! And eating TP? Ick!

      • Heather says:

        What is TP?

        • Whittney says:

          Toilet Paper! It is a new show about weird addictions. One woman eat TP and another sleeps with a blow dryer blowing on her hand all night!

          • Heather says:

            I’m sorry, did you just write that someone eats TOILET PAPER? I thought that was what your abbreviation stood for but when I tried to make sense of it I convinced myself that I was wrong. (Plus I thought you were accusing ME of eating toilet paper!!!)

    • Heather says:

      I used to be more cold-natured than Daddypotamus. We slept with the house cooler than I preferred so I used the hairdryer to heat up my sheets before crawling into bed!

    This totally made me laugh out loud so hard that I had to read it again in order to get more laughter out of myself. I love Mommy survival stories!!

  6. Crystal - Prenatal Coach says:

    LOL too funny! :)

  7. Des says:

    so do you actually hold it while you sleep or is it just by the bed :-)

    • Daniel says:

      Des, I’m pretty sure she holds onto it. Every now and then i see her lying on her side, one arm stretched out with a piece of cheese comfortably nestled in her palm. It’s very heartwarming in a love-the-homeless-children kind of way.

  8. Elisabeth says:

    Oh my gosh, I hear that about the teething. Similar things have been happening to us…
    But, um. Number 5: explain?

  9. Alexis says:

    Haha too funny! You should get a Mac b/c my laptop (a Mac) has one of those keyboard covers so literally nothing can get into the cracks & when it gets too dirty I can take it off & clean it – easy peasy! You’d just have to worry about the monitor :)

    By the way I think you should have a post where mom’s write one of their funniest new mom stories. Reading this post reminded me of a really funny time about a week after my daughter was born!

    • Heather says:

      Oh man, you actually have me hoping that my sturdy little Dell will lay down and die. How have I never heard of a keyboard cover???

      Oh, and that is a GREAT idea. I’m putting it on my upcoming post list RIGHT NOW!!!

  10. Happy Birthday to ME!!!! « The Mommypotamus says:
