-If you choose to formula feed instead of breastfeed or pump, you have no right to complain about the cost of formula.  Especially if you buy Starbucks ever. 

 

If I choose to buy Starbucks, give my child toddler formula who is now over the age of 1, and b***h about the cost of the formula, Starbucks, or both… I will. What about it Veronika? danceAnyone else think of that brat Veruca Salt off Willy Wonka when thinking about her? I mean, she is a little bratty.

That Mommy answers post thing was an absolute trainwreck. I think there was like one of them that had semi-decent advice on something other than clothing? 

The rest of them, you could almost see them sitting at their computers with their eyes bugging out of their heads saying "Oh my God, that's a THING?!" totally and completely unprepared for when they have toddlers. "Ummm I don't know how to answer this question I have an infant" – no shit.

 

"You mean…I can't continue feeding a 2.5 year old purees with a pretty spoon? But…but…I pureed it myself! And the spoon is so pretty!"

 

Scene, two years from now:

 

Hair in rollers, V is standing exasperated by Harper's $800 high chair, Harper flinging food all over the gray and white interior of their McMansion, hair bow covered in slop thrown on the floor. "Harperrrrrr, you have only eaten this food 9 times, and I read on so-and-so's blog when you were an infant that you must try a food 10-20 times before we know if you like it! Please eat this!" furiously Googling on her phone what to do.

Or the time she apparently called out GOMI and others for calling her bluff on photoshopping her images in her child's 7 month update…

These are unedited photos with no filter added. I feel like I have to say that beause I have been accused of "photoshopping" my photos. Not only do I not have Photoshop, if I did, I wouldn't know how to use it in such a sophisticated manner.


Sure thing Veronika rolleyes

While you are at it, could you please reshape those caterpillar eye brows of yours? They are bugging the ever loving shit out of me.dead

I have 3 friends that work in PR and they ALL use Photoshop.  It's part of their job.  So, I call BS on that claim.  Plus, I said this before, " filters are a form of Photoshop."  They make you look a ton better.  For some reason, 90 percent of the people in this Country don't get this, or just don't want to admit that they know this.  It really confuses me.  On another note, should we just post here from now on, or on the other board, or on both?

I don't know who I think is more stupid, the bloggers who only have infant children and have barely been mothers for under a year doing a "mommy panel" like they have any kind of authority or the dumbasses who wrote in with brain dead questions. Kind of like the instagram follower who was SO EXCITED for Veronika to do a post on food because she was "so worried about how her own baby eats", a lot of the questions are things you should ask experienced people you know and trust IRL who have parenting styles similar to your own, or, you know, a f**king doctor. It's developmentally normal for a 2.5 year old child to go through neophobia, but if you're really worried that your kid is taking it to an unhealthy extreme or your way of handling it isn't working, TALK TO YOUR PEDIATRICIAN. Don't ask a bunch of first time moms of kids who aren't even one year old yet, good freaking god.

You Cats have done an excellent job with the recap and getting everybody up to speed. I have just 1 additional tidbit:

Prominent in her "birth story" were details about how she first attended to her 4th day hair and full makeup before, you know, getting to the hospital to birth Harper:

"Remembering that I really wanted to wash my hair, I got in the shower at around 5 a.m. Thirty minutes later my hair was washed, blow-dried and set in velcro rollers (I just did my normal hair routine, nothing out of the ordinary).  My contractions started to get more intense (painful) and closer together as I was blow drying my hair so I had to stop many times to lay on my side in bed and get through each contraction.  By the time my hair was done I decided I wanted to put some makeup on and began applying it.  This is when the contractions got really bad. There was some cursing, tears and repeated cries "why is this happening to meeeeee" and "it's hurts SOOOO bad."  Those were my two most used lines throughout early labor."

And let's not forget all the sports bra photos starting from like 10 minutes post-partum until she was back in fighting shape.  Oh irony.  Not only does she post photos like that where she looks great, she said she fit in all her pre-preg clothes at 2 weeks pp, she then has the balls to start rambling on about the media and women's bodies and how their not the same after birth and that's okay.  EASY FOR YOU TO SAY WHEN YOU GAVE BIRTH AND LOOK VIRTUALLY THE SAME. 

They sit in silence while at home because she will not allow tv as background noise if Harper is awake.

She judged anyone that took a baby to see Santa this year because your child could get RSV.  Forget that her baby is sick 24/7 from daycare…Santa is a the real culprit.

While on maternity leave she often sat in the nursery on the third floor of her castle whilst the maids cleaned all the lower levels.  Upstairs and downstairs aren't in Veronika's vocabulary…her house has LEVELS people, LEVELS.

She has fake boobs and stated on TheKnot that she doesn't allow her H to touch them.

She made it a point on her blog, pre-baby, to constantly talk about being polished and dressing professionally (it's so important, dress for the job you want blah blah) and now she wears a t-shirt or chambray top every other day and slaps a giant jeweled necklace on it from China and calls it a day.

OH HAMS remember those awful Clarks booties she was sent c/o?  I remember someone said she'd never wear them again and she hasn't!

Let's not forget about Veronika's terrible childhood and bad relationship with her mother. She trots that out when she's looking for attention and manipulates stories to make people sympathize with her.

Ex. V claimed that her Mother crashed her honeymoon by just showing up in the Caribbean at their resort. In reality, V and her husband were attending a friend's destination wedding that they selfishly combined into their honeymoon. V's Mom was there because she was also invited to said wedding. 

Seemingly since Harspiedoodle was born, V and her Mom get along just ticket-y boo, since you know, that was God's plan for them, apparently.

Quite frankly, I think her fashion sense blows ass. Why was she in the fashion blogger column?

 

I think she is just a know it all who doesn't know jack shit about a damn thing she blabbers on and on about. I am embarrassed for her…

She used to label herself as a fashion and beauty lifestyle blogger (which she claims she never did).  I agree she knows nothing about fashion but would post business casual (sometimes too casual) outfits that didn't require much thinking.  It was in a realistic price range for most people.  Her following started back in The Knot days.

My tidbits to add:

-  She is an expert about everything especially babies because "iworkinhealthcare" y'all and am in the NICU on the daily.  She really is just a PR person who helps coordinate interviews etc.

-  When she does c/o posts she always talks about getting ready for GNO/date night/etc when she really doesn't.  She just makes the post for it and goes no where after.

-  Her only friend is Candace who people IRL think is Harpsies mother bc of the red hair.  Her only friends are "blogger friends".

-  She is the DIY queen.  please look at her valentines and christmas DIY for reference.

My favorite part has always been the birth story where she pulled out the rollers mid contractions but please elaborate more on the fact that her husband can't touch her boobs…

Back when I had a shred of like for V I thought it was awesome of her to admit to a boob job (even though she made it a point to state that hers wasn't for vanityyadayada). Please elaborate on the husband part? Do we think that this maybe this is why she pumps?!?

Expert opinion coming through…just joking….I did nurse twins and a single so I will but in…plus I pumped at work…so although I don't save nicu babies here is my two cents….being that she is a worrier control googling freak…and based on what she wrote on blog…it's easier to give a bottle to keep track of ounces…..just as a reader of her blog she worries ALOT…I have friends w boob jobs who successfully nursed…although my friend w a reduction couldn't. That's my two cents.
