Reeses are amazing. End of story.

My ultimate favorite candy (or just favorite thing in the world in general) are Reeses peanut butter cups. I can eat them the minute I wake up, two seconds after I fill up on a meal, before bed, middle of the night. Anytime. Easter candy 50% off. Time to stock up. =]

Jordan is here. I have him 12 hours a day on the days I have him. His mom works 4 10 hour days. Max usually wakes up in the morning between 7 and 8:30am. Jordan gets dropped off around 1:30pm. Max's bedtime is 9pm. Jordan usually falls asleep shortly after, but I stay up until he gets picked up (at 1:30am) because he's not a great sleeper, I feel uncomfortable sleeping with him still here, and it's my only "me" time that I get. I use this time to watch my TV shows, play games online, read, have some ice cream (or of course, Reeses!), whatever. Jordan has a rule though, no sleeping over an hour at a time. He goes back to sleep after sucking on his bottle for about 10 seconds. He doesn't usually actually drink anything out of it, and I can't get him to actually drink any, hoping that if he's waking up because he's hungry that by having some of his bottle, he'll sleep a little longer.

Tomorrow I don't have Jordan, I do work (Kohl's-usually in the jewelry department, sometimes as a cashier) 10-2pm, and then Max comes home at 5pm from his dad's. Then we're going to my mom's for dinner. I try to take him over to see her at least once a week. We mostly have a good relationship...we've definitely had our moments, and even our years, but usually we get along fine now. Thankfully. It's important to have supportive parents, no matter how old you are.

I think this couch is lopsided. It's relatively new I think...Maybe a few years. Now that I think about it, it's got to be much older than that. Ten years maybe? Wow. That's a lot longer than a 'few.' Anyway, I think it sinks in where there's a butt because I kind of tip to one side when sitting in certain spots. My laptop is...on my lap...and the screen is way uneven. It's awkward. I'm trying to make my legs sit evenly for my computer and still have room for my arm to be able to type without restriction from the armrest. It's not working very well. Not happy.

As exciting as this has been for you, and I'm sure it has been, I've got to work on my other blog. Well. I still have to do the exercise before I can blog about it...

Introduction to Me! =]

Hello, I'm Tiara Brugger. I'm 22 years old. Three years ago, February 2008, I became the mother to a beautiful baby boy. My son, Max Andrew, is my whole life. His cheerful blue eyes, round face, and the beautiful laugh he lets out are what I live for. He's made me who I am today. He's WHY I'm here today. There is one other person who can make my whole day in a matter of seconds; my husband. Tim and I got married December 23, 2010. Four months ago yesterday, I gave the man I love my hand, a soft kiss, and a promise to love him forever. And I sure will.
At the moment, Tim is stationed in Texas, in the Army. I'm currently in New York, working out details with Max's father so that I'm able to move to Texas and both of us still be able to have Max. It's looking like a 3-month swap (Him have Max for 3 months, then I have Max for 3 months, he has him, I have him...) which is definitely going to be very hard on both of our parts. Not being able to see Max for that long is going to tear me apart. My place is by my husbands side, while raising my son. This is the only way I can do both. In about a year and a half, Tim can get out of the army, and we'll move back to NY and go back to normal times with Max. We're excited to start a family together. Tim absolutely adores Max and is so happy to be his new stepdad, which is something that I am so relieved over. My son if my life, and if someone didn't accept that, it simply wouldn't work out, end of story. But Tim is amazing with him! And I know that Max is going to be an excellent big brother. I nanny 3-4 days a week for a little boy named Jordan. He's 10 months old, and he's been around Max since he was born. Max is always patting him on the back, giving him some toys, if he starts crying, Max is the first one there to give him his binky. He "knows" what Jordan needs, "Mommy, Baby Doden needs a nap," or "Mom, Doden needs to eat lunch." I'm excited to give him a sibling.
