please do not stab my baby anymore

Poor, poor Wyatt. He had his first set of shots today (I know I'm late, so what?). It was probably the saddest thing I have ever witnessed. His cute little happy face smiling at me, and then all of a sudden he is screaming in confusion/pain. I know he was so scared! I actually teared up when he was crying. I felt horrible... and then he slept for 2 and a half hours, so it's all good. He's a little cranky today but it's expected. The nurse who STABBED him was so rude and dry. I mean, I get that her job is to stick babies all day, but she could at least be a little nurturing. She could sense that I was stressed and almost was sarcastic when she asked me if I was going to be alright. NO I WON'T BE ALRIGHT. YOU ARE ABOUT TO STAB MY BABY IN THE THIGH THREE TIMES! Sigh. And yes, I typed it.


Then I went home and made some shortbread cookies. I got the recipe from my Step Mom that substitutes 1 cup of flour with cornstarch to make the cookies light and fluffy. The cookies turned out excellent. I'm sad to say that I've probably eaten like 10 of them already. It's hard to not gorge! I love shortbread so much.




The recipe is as follows..

2 cups of unsalted butter
1 cup of sugar
3 cups of flour
1 cup of cornstarch

Mix the butter and sugar until soft, and then mix in the remaining. Bake on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes and viola! Instant heaven.

And I'll have you know that I pretty much baked them with one hand because Wyatt was demanding that I hold him almost the whole time. WHO'S AN AMAZING MOTHER? ME. 


  1. OOH!!! nice recipe!!! i will try it too! I just caught up on all of post that I've missed. You changed ur blog and your old one doesnt direct to this one. so i'm glad u kept me updated:)
    also, your wish list has some similar item that mine has!!! like camera, steamer, and the dog. I like boston terrier too, but my alsolute dream dog is french bulldog. it's very similar to Boston terrier but a little shorter and maybe more fat/muscular:)

  2. oh, and I cannot believe that the nurse was so mean!!! how can she even work with babies??? I would have some attitude too, so you did good!

  3. i'm glad that you're still following me! and i love french bulldogs too!

  4. I know its hard to see our kids go through it..but whether we like it or not, its for the better...even though its hard to see that especially when our kids are screaming and crying! Just sucks...but one day they wont have to get them anymore..and if they do..then it will be a tattoo...and thats their own choice!


  5. Awww poor baby! I hated that. My sons father is in the medical field so we put our son on a slower paced shot schedual. I made his father take him each time, because I couldn't handle it!

    *New reader.. looking forward to reading more of your posts!*
