The other morning, I wasn’t totally sure what to do with the baby.  Okay, let me explain . . . . (this post is already starting to read like a sleep deprivation haze, and I’m only one sentence in . . . ).  Piper had gotten up, she had eaten, and she wasn’t going back to sleep, even though I was pretty sure that she was still tired.  So I went in, and she needed a diaper change.  But then she still wasn’t going back to sleep and wasn’t interested in nursing.  I looked at Nathan and said, “I’m not really sure what to do with her.”

And his response was, “Babe.  I’m no baby whisperer.”

Good lord do I need a baby whisperer.  Do you think that’s something you can just google?  And then like book them for five months?

It seems beyond crazy to me that this is my third baby at home, and I still don’t know what I’m doing.  And the thing about Piper is that she is a tricky little jerk (please don’t judge me for calling my baby a jerk, read above about the sleep deprivation haze).  She is so happy and sweet 95.63% of the time, and then a switch flips and suddenly she is overtired and super hard to get to bed.  And I think to myself, “WHAT DID I MISS?!?!?!”  (Okay, maybe you should judge me for calling her a jerk.)

It’s crazy to me that I used to judge other parents.  Especially parents with lots of kids.  I mean, surely after #2, you should have it all figured out.  You should be able to give lectures at ivy league schools on proper napping.  But here’s the thing.  And I’m also learning this with {barf} potty training, EACH. KID. IS. DIFFERENT.

So rather than whining to you some more about how hard and tricky parenting is to figure out, I’m going to give you something easy.  These Easy Potato Wedges.  Potato Wedges are something that has alluded me for some time (hmmmm . . . I’m noticing a theme . . . ).  Just when I would think I had them figured out, they would come out of my oven under done . . . or soggy . . . or just not that yummy.

But this recipe is a winner.  I’ve made it a couple times, and it’s perfection.  And SO easy.  The key to it is making sure that you cut them thin enough.  Any thicker than what you are seeing here, and they won’t cook up well.  But I got a good 7 to 8 slices out of each potato, and they came out totally soft in the middle, but with a nice crispiness on the edges.  Plus seasoning them with grill seasoning is like a one stop shopping that makes them taste totally perfect with just a little kick.

Then you add them as a side dish to my Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, and you have easy dinner perfection.

Okay, dear reader, I hope at least 15% of this post written with only one cup of coffee in my system makes sense.  Go forth, eat potato wedges, and email me your napping secrets.

    Oh you poor dear lady .. I remember those days oh so well and sure am glad I am a grandmother now. Its hard on a person with a newborn as each new child is different and oh so unique with their qualities. My oldest daughter when all 3 of her girls were born used a Teddy Ruxbin bear that held a cassette to talk to the child when she didn’t want to sleep and Mom was so exasperated with reading to her. After about 10 minutes the child was asleep,
    Sometimes a calm soothing voice is all a baby needs to go back to sleep and give Mom some peace of mind. Maybe a radio on easy listening music …

    Just remember it will get better with time and when your little one is 16 years old .. remember these days … 😉
