Oh – the itching….

Forgive me, I know. I know that I’m blessed and so incredibly fortunate to be pregnant – and I truly can’t wait to hold this baby in my arms, entirely for her own sake, and not just because when I can hold her, I won’t be pregnant any more. I even like a lot of …

Just another day in paradise

Much to discuss – overwhelming itching and fatigue, freaking myself out about rare liver disorder that will result in delivery of baby four weeks early. Not that I have this – but there’s nothing like the internet for self diagnosis… I was on my way to the doctor’s today (for bloodwork to rule out rare …

Bedtime routine

I know I’ve posted on this before – but I’m still confused by Sam’s bedtime routine. I’ve tried to be more consistent with it, but it’s strictly for my own comfort, because he certainly doesn’t need any help with it. He just goes until he’s done, then lays down and sleeps for 12 hours. Jessie, …

Itchy, so very itchy…

Wow – I really wish there was another adult here, because I really need to slather my back in lotion and quite honestly, I don’t think Sam’s up to the task… Had a delightful birthday – my wonderful husband actually planned a surprise party for Sunday and all of my favorite family and friends bounced …

Pregnancy update

Would you believe that I’m seven months pregnant? According to the Baby Book by the Sears, anyway. I was thinking six, but nope – turns out I’m officially seven months along, and delighted about it. I cried yesterday afternoon, on Marc’s shoulders… sobbing that I just didn’t want to be pregnant anymore. I was tired …

Friday freakout

I do this every Friday – plan a thousand things and then don’t have the desire to do any of it. Kept Jess home today to bring her to the dentist, which is so NOT fun for me. I’m terrified of the dentist, really, and keeping that fear from her, and watching her lay there …

Quality time with Jess and why I feel guilty about Sam

Yesterday was observation day at dance class. Jessie has been going to dance class since she was two, and every year, one day in January, they let parents/grandparents in to watch their kids’ class. My friend Sara took Sam home with her yesterday afternoon, so it was just me and Jess (and my in-laws) and …

Happy Wednesday

All is delightful in my world at the moment. A little nausea, but the baby girl is bopping around in there. I think it’s honestly making the nausea worse, but I always like to feel her move, so I’m not complaining. Actually, I am – but not in a real way, more commenting. Stayed up …

Robert Parker has died…

I love to read. Love it. I have the best memories of my second grade teacher, who used to let me go to the school library when I finished in class early and take out more books. I used to read while walking home from school, it was my go to leisure activity. I’m the …

nighttime parenting

First, let me say that, for the record, when one of my kids is puking in the middle of the night – I want my husband beside me. He’s freaking fabulous with puke. We have a system, a routine, a carefully choreographed dance that we’ve worked over the past seven years of dealing with nighttime …
