little letters (I'm ashamed to admit...)


Dear new "mom" car, I thought I loved you so... until I hit a freakin' pole! I've never hit a pole before!! But now that I have a brand new vehicle, that I haven't even made a payment on yet, and I swipe the pole and mess up your pretty paint job. Uuuugh! {insert the ugly cry emoji}

Dear hubs, remember that you love me! Better yet, remember why you fell in love with me! (Hint: it wasn't because of my driving skills.)

Dear Mia, I thought we were in the clear when your second top tooth popped through (which took eight days I might add. Eight long, miserable days. I wish they didn't hurt you!) but nope! You have your first ear infection because of those little teethies. And it has not been kind to us. Hopefully that antibiotic kicks the infection to the curb last night because we all need more sleep in this house!

Dear Netflix, I am loving the updated queue! I don't have a lot of time to watch my shows (hence the reason we don't have satellite, why pay the money for something we have no time for?) but when I do? I am almost giddy when I remember that I have new episodes to watch :) What are your favorite shows on Netflix??

Dear November thankful game, some people get really annoyed with you because "we should be thankful all year long". While I do agree with that, I love seeing what people are thankful for! It reminds us of every single blessing we are thankful for, or at times, take for granted. Plus I love that people recognize the spirit of Thanksgiving!!

Dear hubs, You have the cutest tush in the world. Not manly enough? You can grow a mean beard, or whatever kind of facial hair you want. You are the hardest worker and I appreciate everything you do to provide for our family! You will always be my forever!! (Have you forgiven me yet??)

Dear Mia, I feel bad complaining about your teeth and ear infection because you are still happier than most babies! But it just makes my momma heart hurt knowing your in pain! And what can I say? I miss sleeping through the night! But you are my favorite baby and I love you forever!

Dear readers friends, thank you SO much for taking the time out of your day to vote for sweet Mia. Gerber has changed things up and the direct link to Mia's photo doesn't work anymore (sorry!) If you want to vote click this link, click "view gallery" and enter her ID #: 249510. Thank you SO much!!

Aww poor Mia. Hope her ear infection clears up quickly.

Such a bummer to hear about your first scratch. That one always hurts worst. The time I scratched the car my husband acted like it was the very first one. Anytime he scratches it, it's no big deal. Ugh.

Celeste said...

Poor baby girl! Grayson just had his first two teeth come in and I felt SO bad for him! He really didn't have too hard of a time with it, but it's definitely disrupted his sleep patterns.
And OMG I hate that for you about your new car! I never had a wreck until I got my brand new car for college graduation, and that thing has been hit like five times now. What's that all about?

Mrs.B said...

Oh no! That stinks, I did the same thing in my husbands truck. He wasn't too pleased with me. haha

Poor baby girl! Hope those teeth stop hurting her and that ear infection.

Michelle said...

My daughter got pink eye and an ear infection from her bottom teeth coming in. I felt so bad for her :( She's starting to cut her top teeth now, so I'm bracing myself this time.

Alex[andra] said...

I hope Mia's teeth pain and ear infection clears up quickly!

My favourite show on Netflix has to be Orange is the New Black. It's such a good show!

Faith said...

oh no ... so sorry about your new vehicle! i'm sure hubs forgives you. i did damage to my new car a month after i got it and i was a blubbering mess. Sean forgave me, lol.

hope Mia starts to feel better soon and i hope that all the votes help her win!

ahh, Netflix ... i love me some Netflix. I really love Parenthood and Flashpoint. Both always end in tears for me but so good!

have a great weekend!

hello erin said...

I hit the garage a month after getting my mom car too... And my SIL hit a pole the week she got hers. It's a mom-car curse!

Ugh. I hope ms Mia feels better ASAP. You guys can't catch a break between teeth and ear infections? Hopefully you get some peace soon!

Nicole [Haus of Harnois] said...

Poor Mia! We've just started teething and it sucks. I've heard that teething and ear infections come in pairs (fantastic, right?) but at least you're not alone! <3

Aww your family is way too adorable!! Mia is precious , telling ya ;)

Katie said...

We have yet to see this mom car correct?! Hope the damage wasn't too bad, but I understand the frustration.

Poor Mia girl :( First teeth now ears. Girl can't catch a break. I hope this is the only ear infection she gets while these teeth make their way in.

Tammy Jo said...

Oh ear infections are so rough! Hope she starts feeling better soon

Julie said...

What's your mom car? I got a new car too but we loaded it with warranty and apparently it gets touched up by something called Auto Blaster every 6 months. You should look into that.

What shows are you watching on Netflix? I didn't know it updated its que - I watch shows via Hulu.

Linzi Scarsella said...

I'm so sorry about you new rig! Poor baby Mia, ear infections are no joke. My daughter just had to get ear tubes because of so many. Be strong mommy <3 We love you!

Hilary @ Peanut Butter Spoonfuls said...

Oh poor Mia, that's a double dose! Sorry about your car. At least you've broken it in now? The first scrape is always the worst.

Laurie @ Disney 'n Diapers said...

OMG. Wanna know something heartbreaking?! (at least for me!?) I got a brand new Murano and literally 2 months after we brought her home my mom managed to swipe the telephone pole right in front of our house when she was pulling it out from our driveway so she could get to her car. #1 I was pissed because I never told her to move it. #2 I was super pissed because here I am making payments on a car and now I have a dent in the side already that I didn't even do! Makes me mad in more ways then one!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

Have you watched Orange is the new Black on Netflix? I heard it's awesome, I think I'm gonna start it this weekend. LOVE my queue too!

Karina Marie Powell said...

Poor thing! Breaks my heart such a little thing can hurt so bad! NOO fun! Haha I agree on the "thankful" I love it! Reminds us of the little details in life that matter! Love your cute family.

beckyj @ A Lazy Crazy Life said...

Oh no, that sucks about your car! And I get annoyed with the people who get annoyed about the thankful game. Just because I don't say out loud what I'm thankful for every other day of the year doesn't mean I'm not. It's in the spirit of Thanksgiving which only comes once a year for crying out loud! :)

Jessie said...

Oh, noooo! Not the brand new vehicle! I'm so sorry. And teething is the pits too. But you're right, there's always something to be grateful for, right? :)

Sarah said...

such a bummer about your car. I went to sell my car, got a quote on how much they would give us and gave us a week to make up our mind, in which time I hit a pole! Arg! Hope Mia feels better and that the meds work!

Sarah Goodman said...

those pictures of you 3 are the sweetest! i LOVE seeing them each time!
so sorry about the pole, who moved that thing anyways! rude ;) now im off to see if you posted what new mom car you got - were in the middle of car shopping too!

Megan said...

So sorry about your car! I hope Mia feels better soon!!

Jenny @ Creatively Blooming said...

Okay, the top picture cracks me up! Mia is like "gosh guys, this kissing stuff is getting kinda old!" Love it!

I dented our car when it was a little over two months old. Thankfully my husband wasn't too upset (or at least he didn't let on that he was). I had just found out that the photographer from a military ball we went to had "helped my girls out a bit" in the formal photo of me and my husband. Needless to say, I was pretty ticked and backed into a concrete pole. So my husband cut me some slack...

Allison said...

So sorry about your car! :( If it makes you feel better I backed our almost new car into a CLOSED garage door and shattered the back window. Thank goodness my husband didn't fall in love with me for my driving skills either! Haha.

Kayla Dolen said...

Love this!!! Sorry about your car:/

Arlyne Nelms said...

I'm sorry to hear about your car, Courtney! And since you didn't mention it, I'm thinking that no one was hurt? I surely hope so. Well, I hope that you'd drive more carefully now. We don't want anybody getting hurt. So, how's your car now?

Alexis Kaye said...

ugh. The top teeth are way worse than the bottom were

Nicole@mamashiptips said...

awww are your guys ok... sorry you hit that pole.. I just got a new mom car two weeks ago too. The paint messed up on the hood. I know how you feel. I HAVE NOT made my first payment. :O)

eliz said...

Well its great that nothing happened to you in your little bump to pole incident...hahaha I have sooo many dents in my car...I don't even care...as long as my car gets me from point A to point B. :-)

Ashley @ ladyacray.blogspot.com said...

Ok I don't care how much anyone loves their kid, I can't imagine dealing with teething AND an ear infection on top of that! You strong, brave soul :-) And as far as Netflix goes, we're fans of The Walking Dead, Drop Dead Diva (me), Prety Little Liars (ADDICTED!), and recently got into Sons of Anarchy (fiance got addicted and sucked me in!). Oh and Scandal :-)

Ashely Redden said...

Oh my, I hope you’re all fine! It’s really annoying that you hit that hole hard in your new car. So, how’s it now?

Casey Martinez said...

this was cute:)! You have a fun way of blogging your thoughts. Always enjoy reading your posts when I actually get the time to visit your blog:) Happy Thanksgiving month!

Pegster said...

So sorry to hear about your car. I would be so devastated. Thank goodness for insurance and good paint job, you'll be back in a new looking car in no time.

Agrh, the teeth, the ear infection, the pain, poor baby. Hang in there.

I love that family pic, I am loving the look on Mia's face.

Janna Renee said...

Oh no! That's part of the reason that I don't want a new vehicle! I'd be too worried about the first ding or scratch. My truck has plenty of those already ;)

Mickey said...

The first scratch or bump in a new car is always the hardest. Hopefully it wasn’t that big of a damage, and it’s all well in the past. Hope you guys are doing well! Cheers!
