Orangefoot! What a cool wedding that will be. Go with your mum and stay overnight. Your kids will enjoy having just dad.

dh is the sah parent so if he is sick, I have to take off work. Someone has to take care of the kids.

Yeah. There is a level of illness where the WOH parent needs to recognise the need to act.

Welcome to the world baby Lucius!
Dinner at our house is actually a bit calmer now that the oldest is away at college. I just find it easier to make a plate for everyone and set them on the table and yell "come 'n get it". They get their own drinks and utensils. The kids each have 2 assigned "dish" nights, so they clean up...(then of course, I clean up after them)lol

How do you guys 'do' pregnancy with a gang of kids? I'm due in three more weeks, and I'm just so tired and sore from ligaments that my poor kids are self-entertaining, self-educating, self-feeding lately. Thankfully I have a 14 yo who's great with lil ones, and my 10 yo LOVES to cook, so she is helping a lot. But I feel guilty enough to tell dh I'm done, even though it flies in the face of everything we believe in.

Just tell me I'll be back to normal in a month!

multimomma- I hear you soooo much.I'm due begining of April! And some days its all I can do to get the two little girls out the door for school and then feed ds4 breakfast! Luckily I have a 14 and 15 yo that can do this for themselves! Some days I look at my house right before dh gets home a thimk I've got nothing to show for the day and then there re some that I actually get alot done. Mydd15 is always looking ofr ways to make money so I've started to use this and make her do the icky things- like the dishes when they get too bad (we have no dw) or cleaning the bathroom.

my saving grace is I keep reminding myself it will be done soon and I will be more back to normal. So I'll tell you the same It will be done soon and soon you'll have your body back- well maybe not your breasts but at least walking, standing, bending over will be possilbe! Till then a big hug and I'll send you some energy for today. I've got extra and got aot of errands run today!

Thanks Fairy. I've just never felt this bad during a pregnancy! With Ava i was on bedrest for a month or so, but even then I had LOTS of energy and no pain, and we even homeschooled in my bedroom for months.

LOL! I haven't had my breasts back in years...so I can cope with that

We'd love to see you all!

The last time I saw Flapjack, River was a bump and now he's a gorgeous boy! Skye was a small girl and now she is a bigger girl with a lovely smile. We really shouldn't leave it so long!
post #52 of 127
We definitely shouldn't It was lovely, and your girls are lovely little people. Skye has declared that Amelia is one of her bestest friends and your soup was delicious. She said that, too

I might be crazy.

I am going shopping at 3 stores this morning to try on clothes with my 5, 3, and 1 yr olds.

I might need a drink around 10 am.

maybe I should just start drinking now. LOL.

I really want to find a hot dress for my date with dh tonight.

Shopping is easier than hanging out at home...at least when we're out the littles aren't wrecking the house.

We're planning #6 for the 12-month break I'll have between finishing my pre-requisites and starting the Nursing program.

I guess I must have amnesia. I can't remember how much it sucked to be pregnant anymore.
