An important discovery!

Important is a subjective term, but if you enjoy chocolate milk, this is crucial information I’m about to share with you.  I occasionally go to New Leaf for our groceries, they have the BEST food but it’s pricey and further away than Publix so it isn’t in our weekly routine. Two days ago, something caught my eye.  Chocolate Milk. In a glass bottle. As in, milkman-drops-off-milk-then-you-return-bottles-for-new-milk bottle. I went in for closer inspection and sure enough the price tag had a little note that said “return clean bottle for deposit.”  Not being able to resist the opportunity to flashback to a more charming era (in some respects at least) and the delicious looking chocolate milk, I purchased a gallon.  I cannot even put into words how amazingly delicious this chocolate milk was.  It was like melted chocolate ice cream mixed with little bits of heaven (i.e. butterfat I’m guessing) Anyways, I’m not ashamed to say it was gone by midday today.  So I diligently cleaned the bottle and Nate and I headed back to New Leaf to see if they were going to make good on the bottle deposit.  They did! And now we have an (almost) full new gallon in the fridge. Bliss.

They don’t have a website, but the Ocheese Creamery is located in Blountstown, FL! The milk doesn’t have to travel far, which must add to the deliciousness.

They also carry this brand at TomatoLand but it’s hit or miss because their products seem to rotate out a lot, but if New Leaf is too far it’s worth a shot! Enjoy!

quick update

Nate is doing MUCH better with his naps!  My only hope would be to get them to go a little longer, but he now goes down without a fuss and sleeps anywhere from one hour to two, two to three times a day.  Sometimes I think he just wakes up too early and that throws off his nap schedule, thus creating three naps. I am just thankful he no longer has to cry to fall asleep! It is so wonderful to do laundry, fix lunch and recharge a bit while the buddy gets some sleep.  Thanks to everyone who gave me helpful advice- I think I’m starting to get the hang of this whole sleep thing! Which means I’m due for a new challenge. . .

A Better Day!

Ahhhhh, this morning.  I got to wake up an hour later than usual, went for a run, and returned to a fresh cup of coffee, my sweet little boy, and my husby who took the liberty of getting up early with Nate and running a few errands. I put Nate down about an hour ago.  He fussed a little, didn’t sit up, and was asleep within 15 minutes.  I think today should be great.  GO NOLES!!!!

Day Five, Round One

So, Nate is asleep now, but it took quite a bit of crying for that to happen.  I have a theory.  Could it be that Nate is old enough to protest his naps with an emphatic determination that a younger baby isn’t capable of? For example, Nate sits up and crawls around his crib, so he isn’t lying there in the sleeping position.  I just hope the neighbors don’t think I’m a terrible mom for letting him cry for such a long time.  Please let there be light at the end of this tunnel!!!
