dnr, I ALWAYS feel that way in a group situation! I can sometimes console myself with the thought that there are plenty of people out there who are happy that someone else is talking so they don't have to be. Plus, I'm a great listener in those situations, too! So there. Anyway, I empathize.
Jster, SO glad you are making positive changes. It always seems to soothe the hurt and stress when you can start to actually take ACTION. It's all that waiting and thinking and decision-making that makes it all so hard!
Okay, I need some fellow-mama sympathy. I took A to the dentist today for his routine cleaning. We were supposed to go last Tues. but got iced in. That same day was the day he fell and knocked his front tooth loose, if y'all remember. Well...it's going to have to come out!
I'm so disappointed! He's going to be gap-toothed at 3! The dentist did say that it will cause his adult tooth to come in a bit sooner, but that won't be til he's 5-8!
I know it's for the best (it really is) and he'll probably look cute as pie, but...come on! I'm trying to spin it to myself that it will just add to his boyishness, you know, like how scars give men "character"? But it's hard on a mommy the first time her baby's angelic perfect beauty is marred in any way! Right? NOT to mention which we paid a handsome sum to have that very tooth filled a year ago! No, I won't really complain about that...better that tooth than a perfectly healthy one.
Now, for all you mamas who have moved or are moving, you couldn't have more sympathy from me. We moved when I was 6 mos pg with A and it was horrible (for other reasons, too). And I have moved SO many times in my life (30-40 times--who can keep count) and I just hate it. Hope everyone gets settled in and can muster up some PEACE before it's "time".
We are supposed to be getting new windows in soon. We rent a duplex and my landlord never clues us in. He showed up 2 weeks ago and said, the guy will be here at 2 to measure you're windows. Well, I haven't heard when they're scheduled to come do the work. The guy had said usually within 30 days. Well, ummm, what do I do if they are here replacing windows and my baby decides to come? Tell them to leave and come back the next day?? Hey, guys, don't work on the bedroom window, just now, I'm giving birth! Yikes.
