I met my first tillandsia (air plant) in a cute boutique in San Jose while shopping with my mother. I instantly fell in love with them and knew I had to have some. The woman wanted $15-30 for her air plants so I immediately put them in my internal "way too much to pay for something I am just going to kill" category. Andrew's mom told me there are places where you can find tillandsias way cheaper, but I had yet to find one until yesterday. I almost jumped for joy when I saw a whole box of tillandsias (some healthy and some very not healthy) at Home Depot for $5/each. I grabbed the best three and soaked them overnight to freshen up their little selves. What will I do with them? Who knows, but it gives me something to think about while I am nursing at 3am.
Also, I gave up on creating a feeding/awake/asleep schedule for Reade. He is two weeks old for goodness sakes. I should not be trying to control anything at this point. I know pediatricians have good intentions, but I think I will let Reade get used to the world before I go sleep Nazi on him. Also, this kid is hungry. If you heard how this kid screams for food you too would be siding with him over the pediatrician. I am going with the flow and I can always change it later.
Now for some squiggle time:
