Where to begin…
This blog and you guys have definitely taken a backseat over the past few months. Most of my free time is spent pumping or cooking. It’s bites, but it’s life. I have 3 more months and then life can get a little bit more normal.
Both Ruby and G were tested to be homozygous for MTHFR mutations. I know…what the hell am I talking about. It looks like motherfucker for a reason. It’s a bitch. It’s so complicated, I’ll be going back to college to actually pay attention in class and figure this shit out. BASICALLY it means that their bodies flush out toxins or “methylate” at a rate of 30% what normal people do. This means they can react to their foods, environment, vaccines, pretty much anything that goes into their body. The reaction can be different for everyone. Some people don’t develop reactions until they are much older. Some kids develop ADHD, Autism, and a whole slew of other problems. It’s scary shit. I’m not saying that this mutation CAUSES all of this nonsense, but something like 98% of kids who have these issues, also have these mutations.
So. That means? I’m doing everything I possibly can to not be over the top insane crazy about this. It’s a crazy rabbit hole that I’m afraid to go down. I don’t want to be psycho mom that is policing everything they touch, do and eat. But I also want to take this seriously and give them the best shot that they can have to stay healthy.
It’s been a lot to handle.
And I’ve felt pretty depressed about the whole thing and the work it takes to make foods from scratch and pump 8 times a day including in the middle of the night.
And because of that, this blog has suffered. It’s hard for me to find the bright side and come here to talk nonsense with everyone. Although, I know that’s what I need. I need to try and see the bright side and try and find a way to live normally with all of this information.
So that’s what I’m going to try and do. Just please know that this blog and you guys have not been forgotten about. I often give quick life updates via the MODG facebook page and instagram page (I still think twitter is a whore). So that’s your best way to stay connected…if you care about cats and diapers. You know, good stuff.
So I owe you all some updates.
Please meet Ruby Lee, Phoenixville’s 3rd place winner in the Kimberton Baby Contest
At first Ruby was like WHAT? 3RD PLACE? And then we had a talk about Britney and Christina and not being appreciated in your own time and coming out on the top later in life. She was like…what? And I was like, it’s pretty much like pulling for a higher title in a few years. She’s like, oh…I got it. So we’re cool.
Also, yes, we were on tv. It was a very surreal experience. Like, ME? you want to put ME on tv? So yeah, the interview wasn’t the most compelling piece of news drama this year. But it was cool for me and my family and something that I’ll probably never get to do again…outside of maybe hosting the Emmy’s.
I got to have hair and makeup. THAT made me feel famous. I arrived with like 43 lbs of makeup already on though so the makeup guy was all…um…you’re not a kardasian. Right.
But let’s get real here. Bringing a toddler to a tv studio is not something I’d recommend in regular life. Although G loved every second of it. He saw himself “on tv” and was sold. I’m in trouble.
And then, on my BIG DAY. What do you know? Cole Hamels steals the show. Again. They see B and are all…wait. Her husband is here? That’s him? He looks like Cole Hamels? Get him on the show. NO PROBLEM B. I’LL JUST SCOOT OVER.
The show is called Dawn. In case you weren’t sure. I was pretty nervous.
Everyone CLEAR OUT. IT’S G’S TURN TO BE THE STAR.
Here are the clips. I was so bummed that they didn’t get to feature all of my products. I’m going to be doing a follow up post talking about each product and showing an exclusive amazing B produced video featuring the products we didn’t get to. It will be the B! show. You’ll love it.
Someone said it seems like I’m high. Probably my favorite comment ever. I would be very impressed with a high guest if I saw one. Just me though…
Few things. I don’t have a background in marketing. I felt bad correcting her. Also, some of you said you tried to call and were sent to a voicemail. Yeah, I don’t know. Also I guess I’m officially a “mommy blogger”. That term still makes me a little vomitty. I don’t know why. Martinis MODG would have full on puked. I need to accept it. I also need to accept my permanent preg stomach and grays. Barf.
So, this has been a weird post. Pageants, TV and DNA. That’s what you get on the MODG show. You’d watch it right?
I’ll be around. I promise. Be patient with me.
Stay tuned for the weirdest video I’ve ever made.
Love and Lust
PS If you know anything about MTHFR and can share your smarts, please tell me in the comments. I need mucho help.
Also I’ll take pageant comments too.
