I want a serger, I've wanted one for a couple of years now. If anyone were to give me a couple of hundred dollars and tell me it was fun money I would have one by sun down!

Not sure what the last thing was that I felt really guilty about. I feel minor mommy guilt about lots of things with my kids, but nothing that keeps me up at night.

I just paid cash this morning for some fleece to finish a project I've been working on. I actually pay cash for most items, helps with the budget, if I don't have the money in my wallet I don't get it.

1. If you could purchase one "want" not "need" item for yourself right now, what would it be?I feel like I just bought everything I really wanted. I want a second lens for my brandnew camera, but only because they didn't have one in stock when I bought the camera last week!

2. What was the last thing you felt guilty about?Being so angry at my SIL and talking about her infront of my nephew. (he's 13 months old) but I still feel like that wasn't appropriate or fair of me.

3. What was the last thing you paid for with cash? Groceries. We use cash for everything.

Wow, lots of cash only ladies. I want to move to that, but my DH loves his debit card. Everything is paid by debit except coffee (cash). We don't use credit cards though, so its not so bad.

1. I'd buy an Ipad or a stand mixer
2. This is gonna sound super depressing but I'm feeling guilty all the time lately. Baby boy has some motor delay and a weird 'neurological' problem that makes his hands and feet shake when he's otherwise not actively occupied. We've done everything we could since we noticed it: we talked to his ped and she brushed it off, I was not happy with that so I filmed his 'tics' and took my kid to the emergency room and we were hospitalized and passed a scan and EEG (both normal), transfered in pediatric neurology, made appointments with chiropractors, talked again to his ped and were transfered in physical therapy and still... I feel like it's my fault. That I passed on some defective gene, that I did something wrong during pregnancy/labor, that I was not stimulating him enough/too much, that I should have seen it earlier... So yeah, I feel guilty about that. Sorry for the novel, it's just pretty heavy on my mind lately.
3. Probably food.

You are clearly doing everything in your power to help him, you're obviously a good mama. I hope you get some answers on that soon, it sounds scary!

Thank you, you're very sweet I know that we're doing everything we can and we are actually very early in this process so it might end up being only transitional (he's only 9 months so we are taking every precaution/mesures possible) but it's the not knowing that kills me. Every horrible scenario is going through my head, even tho I know I should stop being so anxious. *sigh*
