Santa is the Best Parenting Tool I Have Right Now

My hair looks fabu and I am so thankful I don't have to stare at my roots and my greys on a daily basis. At least for another 8 weeks. My green salon was cool but different, I am now used to big huge hair salons and this one is small with a small staff. It reminded me of the NYC salons I would frequent when I was a DINK and had lots of money to spend on my hair.
I didn't have anything to eat, I have no idea why, I was hungry.

I went to the doctor's yesterday for my monthly visit and I was scared about how much weight I have gained in the past 5 weeks. You have to account for Thanksgiving and leftover Halloween candy, so I was really nervous for that stupid weigh in. I don't know why because I never look at the scale, I always avert my eyes. I can't handle the truth. I am a wuss.
My doctor didn't peep about it, so I feel fine. The only one who gave me a hard time was this nurse practitioner I see sometimes. She never had kids so I take her "advice" to lay off all fruit and I discard it as soon as it leaves her mouth.

My Mom is having her annual Christmas party tomorrow and Santa will be there. This is enough ammo for my kids to behave for the past week. I wish I thought of that sooner. I wonder if it will work for the 51 weeks after Christmas? I better not, when you get a new one that works like that you have to use it sparingly.
That is an FYI to all you new parents out there.
You are welcome.

    Love your belly!!! Your hair looks awesome too! Know what you mean about well intentioned nurses who never had kids....wouldn't fruit be a better alternative to say candy????
    Have a great day...go Santa go!!

    Happy Holidays, JimT
