Get your pads and pens ready because it’s time for the Week In Review.
The Week In Review is a list, in its purest form, not of the things you still need to do, but of all the things you have done in the last seven days. It’s an achievement list, an ode to yourself, a celebration of sorts, and a virtual pat on the back or smack on the ass. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

Let’s get listing:
The Hubby, Ave and I survived the week, which is pretty big deal in my book, considering this whole baby business is new for all of us.
In more baby news, we filed Ave’s nails (success!), gave her a sponge bath (she peed all over herself mere minutes later), and put her in a onesie, which was as terrifying for her as it was for me. Have you ever tried to pull something over a newborn’s head? Yeah, you can see my dilemma.
Ave and I caught a cold. As a result, I used my ridiculously expensive Lancôme tweezers to pull boogers out of her nose. Improvisation at its finest.
I did a bazillion loads of laundry and even cleaned our sheets, twice. Once to get rid of the breast milk stains and the second time because of the sickness. Germs are bad.
I showered six out of seven days, and I managed to brush my teeth a handful of times. I even washed my hair.
I did a lot of walking, rocking, and swaying with the baby to try to soothe her to sleep. It’s my new version of cardio. It’s like a slow motion Zumba.
(Motherhood = exhausted and half naked, with a baby on your boobs, sans make up, plus bed head.)
I filed our Federal, State and Local taxes at 9 p.m. on the 18th. Procrastination at its finest.
I did some blog reading.
I hit up Target with the Hubby, where I put on legit pants for the first time in two plus weeks. Of course the second I got back home, I climbed right back into my sweatpants. Hello Pimp Suit; come to Mama.
(This is a pre-baby picture. I haven’t worn this much makeup in weeks.)
I paid bills and reconciled our bank accounts.
On a handful of occasions, I grabbed the baby and her stroller and soaked up some vitamin D.
I hit up a lactation support group, where all the ladies whip out their tatas and let the tiny humans go to town. It felt like home.
I watched a season and a half of Gilmore Girls, all while breastfeeding, which is where all my time goes these days.
Last but not least, I celebrated eleven years of marital bliss with the Hubby by passing out on the couch while watching The Entourage movie on Saturday night. The bits I did see were pretty funny though.
It’s your turn. I want to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
