How We... March Edition

You guys, this month's link up is so exciting for me, because I'm finally a mom and can participate in the mom-related blog topics! YAY!!

So today, I'm linking up with Mix and Match Mama Blog and A Little Bit of Everything Blog for their monthly. "How We....." blog posts. This month's topic is "How We Mom Fail"

Here are some of my mom fails so far.... 

1. Forgetting to pack milk! My step-mom had a 50th birthday party when Liam was about 3 weeks old. The party was an hour away from where we live, but since it was a milestone birthday, we decided to travel for the first time with Liam. At that point, we were still super exhausted bc Liam was eating every 2 hours. He wasn't doing well with breastfeeding, and I certainly didn't feel comfortable breastfeeding in public, so I was mostly pumping and giving him bottles. We made up a few bottles of pumped breast milk and had a little cooler bag ready to do in our fridge... we drove an hour to the party and realized we forgot the baby's milk!! Thankfully, I had my breast pump with me, so I pumped and got enough milk for him to eat until we got home. Yikes! That could've been a close one. 

2. Forgetting bottle parts... AHH! I've done this too many times. Most recently, on a trip to IL for the weekend. We use the Dr. Brown's bottles with the vents, but when we store the milk in the fridge, we just use the bottle and the flat cap, and then when Liam is ready to eat, we insert the vent and nipple. Well, we packed the bottles, but forgot the vent and nipple parts, so we had to stop at Wal-Mart and buy a new set of bottles on our way there!

3. On my maternity leave, Liam had a Dr. appointment. During that time, he was still eating every 3 hours, and I was also pumping every 3 hours, so I was super exhausted and struggled to leave the house with Liam. But on this day, we both got all ready, and got out of the house on our own. I was so proud we made it to the doctor's office on time, just to realize Liam's appointment was the next day! 

Here's a cute picture of my sweet little guy to break up today's post a little. 
How cute is he in his Polar Bear hat? He's 5 months and 1 week old in this pic.

So those are my major mom fails so far....  I know they're nothing too crazy yet, but give me time... I've only been a mama for 5 months so far. I'm sure there will be  TON more later as Liam gets older.

Happy Pi Day, my friends!
