Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, January 12


Shoes: Nine West Martina, Dress: c/o Hatch Collection, Blazer: F21, Belt: JCrew, Lipstick: NARS Heatwave
Awkward:
-Trying to have a conversation with my doctor as I sit pants-less on the patient table, feeding a slightly fussy baby and failing to maintain any form of decency as my ridiculously small toilet paper sheath slides slowwwwly off my lap. I'm having a marvelous time doctor, really I am. Let's keep talking.
- Tys requesting that I grab E's binky from the counter for him. So I do. Only to bring it back and proceed to try and stick it in his mouth. TYSON'S mouth people! Actually wondering for two seconds why he wasn't taking it ... until I noticed him looking up at me with his lips clamped shut like, "alright, well it was nice knowing you when you were normal".  And that, my friends, is how you know it's nap time.
- That moment when your sweet Everett lets one rip like the man-babe that he is. And you think to yourself, "There is NO WAY that just came from that tiny child", only to look around the room and realize that everyone is thinking the exact same thing.
- What they don't tell you about after birth: First, there's those really fab undies that you get to wear. And just in case you haven't had this particular delight in your life yet, just picture a large, highly stretchable, mesh {mesh!} diaper. If that's not enough of a visual for you, there's of course the matronly nursing bra, some truly artistic bedhead and numb epi noodle legs that require you to be whisked off to the bathroom in aforementioned attire, on a miniature chariot. Basically, it's your shining moment.
- Reaching up to turn off the baby monitor like it's an alarm. Shortly followed by a, "get it together man!" pep talk in the bathroom mirror.

Awesome:
-  I mean, he kind of said it all.
- The older woman who came up to me in the store, convinced that we had been friends years ago. I tried to tell her that I would have been 7 at the time, but she wasn't having any of it.
- The fact that I spent literally all day running four errands {not the awesome part} and my little buddy Everett was a gem the whole time. Back seat diaper changes and not a single pee incident. MAJOR.
- Yes, our Christmas tree is STILL up. We're having a hard time parting from the glow
- Getting to teach the three year olds in church together.
- Mamas who have pretty painted nails. WHEN guys? Tell me whennnnnn
- My one true love and my little love ... doing anything together. Does fatherhood look good on that guy? YES. That's a big yes.

you are always awesome to your readers :)

brandonandlindslitzner said...

i'm with you on the nail polish. it took me almost 9 months to paint my nails. yes....nine months! you can read about it here...http://mamalovestyle.blogspot.com/2011/07/bestpolishever.html

here's hoping you don't have to wait that long :).

Songbook said...

Ok, I want that entire outfit. Also, the painted nails come later- life gets easier as the baby gets older (at least I think so).

French Lover said...

This might just be the perfect post. I love it :)

Bisous!

genevieve said...

I feel like I've been missing A&A! "TYSON'S mouth people!" BA HAHA. Aww, Syd. Nap time, it is!

LOVE that dress!

Unknown said...

Love your awkward/awesome posts! :) It helps me to feel a little more human, knowing I'm not the only one with these moments.

Have you asked your doctor about
Priti nail polish
or
Dr.'s REMEDY nail polish
?

Can I just say you look absolutely gorgeous! These are like model shots. And that dress is phenomenal on you! I love how you accessorized with the belt and how the structured jacket pull everything together.

I'm telling you - painted nails don't truly happen again until the babies are at least three-years-old. Crazy life. Gotta love it. Sounds like you are doing a great job.

You look just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Sheree said...

Great flow on that dress! Tess I highly remember the mesh underwear..no one told me how much bleeding there would be after...crazy right?
Get your nails done when the hubs is home..you need it..I would prefer a massage though since the nails will be destroyed in one day!

vini said...

wowww, just... wowwww!!! hugs, vini

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

i've missed these awkward/awesome posts like whoa! love this outfit too!

Deveny said...

Love that dress! The $300+ price tag? Don't love as much. haha
Yes, I've been meaning to do a post on the lovely things no one tells you about after birth - like the fear of going to the toilet and your innards coming out. LOL

What Spoiled My Eggs? said...

One of the best awkward/awesomes yet! So so so funny.

A Red Haired Girl said...

Our Christmas tree is still up as well.... :)

aislin said...

i'm so happy awkward & awesome thursday is back! it's my first read of the day and always makes me laugh. okay, minus the mesh hot pants ... that made me slightly cringe.
cheers to 'get it together' moments!

O B S E S S I V I S I O N said...

WOW, the most beautiful mom. I've told local ladies about your blog. You show that you can have mounds of style and still be pregnant. If you are looking for some nursery inspiration, check out my recent blog post here: http://obsessivision.com/projects/the-nursery/ (you can follow in the footer)

Kieren said...

It's all about the Sally Hansen polish that dries in 60 seconds! Paint them as quick as you can, once he passes the possible early wake up mark, but with enough time to dry before the possible real wake up. But really, if they aren't using quick dry polish, it's a miracle.

Elise said...

Yay! More awkward and awesome!
Love that dress!

Mara and Jae said...

SOOO happy to read awkward and awesome thursday again. it seriously makes me so happy.

Love your outfit you look beautiful! These are such great posts, love them!

love how you are doing more outfit pictures! i missed them!

jeri kaye said...

give me those shoes girrrrrl!

Karin said...

Haha! Leave E with Daddy and a bottle while you get a manicure! Or, I painted mine while baby napped and told daddy he was on duty for an hour. You can do it! Do something for yourself, what a concept right? And oh yeah those mesh undies...so necessary, I didn't want to ruin my own! :)

Katie said...

It's backkkkk! Yes! Love it!

I so glad these are back!

You look beautiful.

Jani Hershberger said...

i just want to say that this post made my day. i had my son about a week before you and can completely relate. isn't it awesome when you can get those four errands accomplished?

p.s. i too have a man baby :)

The Balch Bunch said...

I swear by Sally Hanson Insta Dry... thats the only way I would EVER have painted toes or fingers!

Christine said...

this makes me feel a little better about myself! As a new mommy with a two week old girl, there are plenty of awkwards, and plenty of awesomes. I never thought I would walk around shirtless in my house or wake up covered in milk. my poor husband...he sure is great though!

Christina said...

Your awkward and awesome posts, which were great to begin with, have only been made better by motherhood. I love that dress and all of the clothes from hatch.

elise @ elise's pieces said...

I am so SO blissfully happy that Awkward and Awesome is back in action.

Along Abbey Road said...

Laughing about the lady that was convinced you were friends, although you were 7. Haha. That's awesome.

Can't wait for my shining moment in those glorious mesh panties in the next 48 hours... sike!

That's what I say when I see your perfectly styled hair, cute outfits, and makeup: whennn, tell me whennn?! I was not that together when my son was born (exactly 1 year ago). You make motherhood look great!

j.love said...

I love this feature! So happy that it's back in action. I laughed out loud at a few of these!! Pants-less doctor convos and trying to "soothe" your hubby - so great! :)

Maggie and Ben said...

I love how you wrote "my one true love and my little love". I think it's so important to realize early that the love you have for your husband is just as important and special as the love you have for your baby! Maybe more marriages would last if we all had this philosophy!

Anna said...

Yay for Awkward and Awesome Thursdays! You were missed. :)
My husband and I are teaching the 5 year-olds this year. Good luck to you two!

Alexis Brodell said...

I love reading your Awkward Awesomes! So glad they're back! Your awkyawsys are what inspired me to create my own blog! So thanks for that :)
ps. your stories about your little man and yo man make my maternal instincts swell with warmth.

I love your outfit!!!!!! This was a fabulous post!!!!!!! Thanks for the good laugh Syd!

ShannonB said...

painted nails: leave him with the husband for an hour, hit the salon and just do it! it'll make you feel like a million bucks.

random question - dying to know how tall you are...loving all your outfits but i'm a shorty. don't think i could quite pull em off!

melissamevans said...

What a great post...I love Awkward and awesome Thursdays....one of my most favorite things to read on your blog! ...loving this post :)

Mejia Mamma said...

Here's my advise:
While he's young, and sleeps most of the time...and you can hold him in your arms without him wanting to get away, use his own legs & exert his freedom...just take him to the nail salon WITH you, and from there... get Shellac done - it lasts FORever... k, well maybe more like, 2-3 weeks - but that's a hellofalot longer than my DIY manicure at home with a toddler! HA...so worth the $$!

first, i'm a new reader. you have a fabulous blog!
second, i'm sitting at work laughing out loud at all of your awkward stories! i've been in that very situation sitting in the doctor's office. i've also tried to force a bottle into my husband's mouth instead of baby's mouth. i get it. you are one cute mama. that outfit is awesome.

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Lol, you're kind of making me want to adopt vs. giving birth. Just sayin'. ;-)

Joni and Rico Adams said...

I felt the same way about painted nails!! I used to always have a fresh mani every week- Now that precious baby girl came along... not so much. MAYBE once every 2 months. I've looked into Shellac nails. Yes you pay someone for this but at the same time you get out of the house for some mommy time too. Win win.

So happy these are back :) Thanks for sharing such sweet, personal and funny moments. Love reading your blog (daily).

Oh, and I am sure I have not a clue about how difficult it would be to paint your nails with a little one but there is a fast dry top coat that could change your life. You may already know about it but its called Seche Vite. I dedicated a blog post to it just the other day...

e_e_west said...

Hahaha, this was amazing! I just found your blog recently, and this was my first time reading an awkward and awesome post. Those mesh underwear are all kinds of amazing - and I love how doctors try to talk to you about your weekend while in the most uncomfortable situations ever?

The errands get easier, and the nails get painted....after the 5/6 month period. The first 3 months you barely remember - trust me - I've done it twice!

Shug in Boots said...

ha ... I do weird stuff like that when my blood sugar is low. Once, I left some hamburger patties in the cabinet because my blood was low ... so to me, it made sense to just put that tupperwear with the rest of the tupperwear. duh. And, that old lady thinkin y'all were friends? Bless her heart. :)

Cassie @ Live.Laugh.L0ve. said...

This made me laugh! :) Love this post!

Kellee said...

I am dying over the mesh undies, and being whisked off to the bathroom! What fun memories that brings back! I think my husband was mortified by all this! Especially when I asked him to help use the "squirt bottle" after going to the bathroom. Oh dear. Good thing they love us :)

Beautiful outfit also!

Kacie said...

the part with tyson and the pacifier... laughing.. out loud.. a lot.

OK. After birth things sound scary. And no, no one tells you about those things, so thank you for informing me so that I will know in advance. Haha.

On the other hand, no one would know you are experiencing any of those things In. That. Dress. I love it.

You go during one of his naps. Make it happen you deserve pretty nails :)

Haha This post is great, brings back all of those first few months of motherhood memories- Enjoy all those naps little E takes, in a few months you will be wishing he would nap more! :)

ThisLittleMomma said...

Oh and yes the pads and mesh undies- enough.said! & hit up the nail salon while he naps, is what I was trying to say. Sorry, mommy brain here!

Monique said...

You have amazing style and a beautiful family! I'm not a mother but I am def not looking forward to those mesh undies! But from what I can see from your blog everything else seems to make them worth it.

Brittany said...

I can solve your nail polish problem. Out The Door clear top coat is AMAZING. You can get it at any salon (Sally's out here. You just wait about 30 seconds after you paint your nails with color, put it on, and it's dry in less than a minute. It looks GORGEOUS and keeps your polish from chipping and makes it look pretty and shiny for weeks.

One of my best friends just had a baby last month, and I was in her bathroom and I noticed the massive pad. My tubes tied all on their own when I saw it.

hahaha I have heard about the mesh undies you have to wear after the birth...I am NOT looking forward to those! I love that your tree is still up!

yayyy for the return of awkward & awesome! :) loveee it.

Kristy said...

I'll never forget the mesh panties after birth. I think those puppies deserve a spot in the awesome category ;)

Laura said...

Can I first just say how much I enjoy reading your blog? It always makes me smile and I LOVE awkward & awesome Thursdays - I'm so glad they're back! But I always have the same question when I read a post when you're wearing an insanely amazing outfit (which you usually are) - where in the heck do you wear them? I have some similar clothes as you, but I never know where I can wear them since I don't think I can wear them to school or grocery shopping. And since you're a new mom, it baffles me even more! I really just want an excuse to break out my seldom-see-the-light clothes without feeling like I'm overdressed :)

No, they don't tell us enough about after birth. I wore really saggy undies for a month...or was it two?

Your "awkward" comments remind me of the show "Up All Night". Partly because you sound like you have been up all night, and partly because I am about to watch it right this very second!

Love the paci story!! I did the same thing when my daughter (3) was a baby. Except my husband took it and didn't say anything. I didn't realize what happened until I had left the room! Oh, life as a mommy.

Nope. I've never heard that about after birth. Thanks for the heads up (and the laugh)! :)
