New forum, time for my old reliable: Princess Sparkle Zumba Pony. For some reason she reminds me of the girls they would have on the old "My Little Pony" commercials (am aging myself).

Such a valuable lesson to be teaching her daughter. Nice to know she has what is really important all figured out.

This item on her did-do list:

-showered, put wet hair into a bun

i…just…can't. showering is worthy of putting on a to-do list? you have to be kidding me.

and lest we all forget, PSZP isn't taking *any* time for herself because she's OMGsobusy and OMGsuchaperfectmom. she's really sacrificing for her daughter by putting her hair in a wet bun.

Her blog is starting to sound more like CnC every day. As much as she may have tried to keep the baby from affecting her blog, now all she does nowadays is blog about topics she is not an expert on and drop way too many hints about her privilege. I used to really like reading, but ugh. (and not to say I stop reading when bloggers have babies… I've been reading DG for a long time and continue to read now — maybe not every post but still)

LOL at her "accomplishments" of the day. I'm not a mom so obviously my opinion doesn't count but her day is like a Saturday afternoon for me. Obviously without the breast feeding. My sister has a 2 year old and a baby on the way and she thought the list was hysterical.

And if you have time to make a list of the things you did and praise yourself for it, then you could have done more.

Her last sentence felt like she needs to prove to her husband that she was busy.

Yes Tom, we do need a maid! Look all I do in a day!
And my mom needs to come over every single day so I can workout.
Of course I spend time with our daughter, I bring her to the mall every day. Bonding time!

Ugh, that last sentence killed me. If you need to do that, you have one of two situations: 1) your husband is a jackass and comes in the door and says "Looks like you two have had a pretty easy day!" or 2) you are not feeling fulfilled by your daily activities, so you're really just easing your own insecurity with your new schedule. Either way, sucks to be you!

I call #1… Pilot will probably try to be nice and be like, "Yes, yes, you had SUCH a hard day, honey. Let me come straight home from my demanding pilot job and cook and do everything for you so that you can do more workouts." In his head, he's thinking, "WTF." Princess indeed. If you didn't want your days to be like this, don't have a baby!

I agree with every word in this string. I had the same thought when I read that sentence, too.

In the old forum, one commenter said Gina probably puts a to-do list together such as -change diaper and -shower. I forget who wrote that, but whoever did, they CALLED it!

I feel the same way. Her blog is boring and I agree with the analogy to CnC's blog.

"It took me about 18 years of life to learn that quiche starts with a “q.” " —> is she really that f*cking stupid? No wonder why she hasn't secured a book deal.

DYING of lols.

No, she's super super smart. She took a graduate class in undergrad, REMEMBER!>??

I didn't know what a quiche was until I was 18, hah! But I had not seen or eaten them before that point and knew they started with a "Q." Goodness.

So it is NOT spelled "keesh"? Uh oh….

it took me half my life to figure that quiche was pronounced keesh and not 'qweesh'. Okay I'm hearing impaired.. but it is kind of embarrassing when you realise you have been saying it wrong all those years!

Don't feel bad… you'd slap me if you knew how long I said "kwin-oa" (quinoa) haha

Oh, yeah. I forgot Her Highness took a graduate class when she was an undergrad. LOL.

Her post should be titled "Tacky like that." She said she spent $60 to use the mother's room at Babies R Us. She would rather tell the Internets she spent money on a short visit to the Babies R Us room than squirrel the money away for Olivia's education. Why would she tell the Internets that she spent $60 to BF her baby at Babies R Us? as JudgementalSnark says, "what a valuable lesson to be teaching her daughter."
Someone's getting a little passive-aggressive and fiesty with the keyboard and taking stabs at GOMI with usage of "that time" and "sparkly" and making references to her privilege.
Her life revolves around shopping and the mall. It doesn't get much more one-dimensional than that. Very sad.

Pretty sure she was trying to be funny by saying that she spent $60 on clothes for Olivia even though she just intended on a quick in/out trip to use the nursing/changing room.

I almost always agree with everything written here on GOMI, but I have to jump in here and say that she probably does consider showering while also caring for a newborn an accomplishment. Before I became a mom, I totally would've snarked on Gina for this too. It seemed ridiculous to consider a shower an accomplishment, but with a crying, hungry, annoying baby it totally is!

In this context, I think the snarkable thing is that she is being dishonest about her experience with a newborn. Others have called out that she does not seem happy, and as someone who experience really serious postpartum depression, I get irritated when moms who are clearly not 100% happy gloss over how awful it is to care for a newborn. It is not fun! Her desire to always run out the door and exercise is case in point. When I was not well, all I wanted to do was sweat the pain away as well.

Long story short, if she put her experience in the proper context the whole shower thing would not be laughable.

If anyone wants to feel really, really productive and efficient, check out the comment section on the Did-Do List post. I made oatmeal! I exercised two times! I went to the post office! Ate baby carrots!

Cheaper then therapy and I suddenly feel quite accomplished.

Oh, the idle vanity….just a day in the life of the HLB-addict squad.

I think I do more, minus the breastfeeding, on most days because I actually work, exercise, cook, clean my own stuff as well as the man's since he works a LOT, and babysit my infant niece.  She's not going to have much to write about if she ever gets a book deal.  WHY must these bloggers think they have enough to share (and actual writing skills) that they need to write a book?  Or at least write a work of fiction.
