I’m actually writing this tonight while watching Parenthood and babysitting for the Barbie family. If you’ve watched Parenthood, please talk to me about how incredible it is because I cry during almost EVERY episode. I’m in the middle of season 6.
My SIL started nannying for the Barbie family this month! Which is literally so incredible because they are within walking distance from our houses (remember she lives with my parents and I live right next door to my parents), I won’t lose out on weekend babysitting because Barbie mom loves me and SIL wants to be home weekends with baby W anyway, and SIL working means I may not have to fork over my entire check to my family. Sorry that it’s been passed on to you, SIL.
SIL and I have been getting so close. She is so similar to me. She is quiet. She would rather dislike something quietly and have everyone else be happy rather than say something and have everyone fuss over her. She is sassy, but only after she’s comfortable with you. She’s so cute. She’s so funny. She’s a great mom. We connect so well, on so many levels. I love when I can get her to really, really laugh. I sound like I have a crush on her but I think I’ve just finally learned to appreciate people for who they are rather than focusing on disagreements. I just want to protect her from everything. I miss her when we aren’t together!! I love SIL seriously, so much. My little brother (her husband) can be SUCH AN ASSHOLE but I can see the love she has for him in her face, even when she’s complaining about him. He deserves that. He’s a jerk, but he deserves the love she gives him.
She gave me the most beautiful nephew I could ever imagine having. He smiles at me sometimes like I’m the coolest thing ever. I can get him to coo and grin like no other (except mom and dad). He loves my hair! I can get him to sleep so easily. I can’t believe my baby nephew is already 2 months old. 9 weeks last week! He’s growing way too fast.
I’ve been good, happy. I miss Bear more than anything. He’ll be back with me in September, but it feels so far away. He’s the best parts of me! I think he’s going to be moving in with me in September but we haven’t talked too much about that. I just feel that’s where we’re headed. 🙂
I’ve really been buckling down on losing weight and getting healthy. While I by no means look any more than “chubby” I’m considered obese. It’s been kind of hard but I am starting to see differences in my face and my stomach. I haven’t been telling Bear about it because I want him to be so impressed when he sees me.
I’m literally sobbing at Parenthood right now. sobbing.
