at starting the new thread…aren’t you just a pregnant rock star
Amazing mama!! Can’t wait to hear your big news…on pins and needles!! Hope you’re feeling good Katie
I’m so sorry to hear you all started off 2010 so sick. I saw your FB post too – my heart goes out to you mama. What a messy few days. Hope you are all feeling better now Mommajb
Way to go mama!!
4th is awesome! I hope that Linus feels better soon Heather
Sounds like you had a wonderful NYE. I’m so glad someone did something worthwhile
We were so boring this year!
Well sorry to wait so long to wish you all a real happy 2010, but I was thinking of you. We were in the process of moving our office, so my internet access was limited. Then once I finally got it set up, DH hogged the computer
You’d think cutting him off of Ebay and Craigslist for ½ a day was like cutting off his oxygen…ridiculous!
We didn’t do anything on NYE. We ordered sushi in (I know, I know…I only do it once in a while) and I fell asleep by like 10
I’m so lame! New Years day we spent running around like idiots - first my grandmother’s house for lunch and then my SIL’s house for dinner. We didn’t get home until 8:30 and were completely exhausted. DH and I got into a massive argument with my mother (who was behaving like a complete child) so that’s always a fun way to start things off. I feel a great separation there (between she and I) – I don’t know what else to do. As a mom, I feel like that’s the worst thing I could do to her, but as a wife and human being I just don’t know what else I CAN do. She’s really critical of everything, mocks our decisions (like our name for our baby) and is really inappropriate about it. She feels she has some sort of “right” to have an opinion and interject it on us, causing influence. She feels like since DH picked DS’ name without any say from me that I should have the same right. The fact of the matter is that we picked Anderson together and both love it, so I would think that is the best, right? I don’t understand why she’s got a problem with it other than that she doesn’t like the name since SHE didn’t pick it?? I am completely guessing here, but all she did during the 3 ½ hours we spent together on New Year’s Day was criticize, make fun of, and drive us nuts. DH is furious, I’m beside myself and she is our ONLY babysitter right now, so I’m really torn. I am getting to a point though that I don’t trust her with my son because she loves to wait until one of us leaves the room and then teach him to say something bad. She used to do it all the time with my dad (whom she divorced when I was 3 – bad mouthing him my whole life) and then proceeded to do it with my step-father both during their marriage and drawn-out divorce 2 years ago. It is ridiculous. She behaves like a child and at 50, that’s just not cute, you know? I’m really hurt and frustrated. Not sure how to make the change and I don’t want my IL’s to be my only family either. Oh, MOTHERS!!
I hope to God my son never has these feelings about me!!
My brother and his long-time girlfriend came by last night (she’s in from TX and he’s in from VA – temporarily separated because he got relocated (Air Force) and she’s finishing up college). They stayed for 6 ½ hours and it was so nice to catch up with them. My son got to really bond with his uncle too which was wonderful. They never get any one-on-one time together without my mom. His poor GF confided in me too that my mom is driving her crazy – she’s mean, competing over my brother, and just being really inappropriate. I’m pretty sure she’s “the one” so I really feel for her. Cannot imagine planning a wedding as the woman marrying my mother’s only son. She has no ability to let go or let him grow up. It’s kind of disturbing and disgusting at times.
Got DS moved into his big boy bed, big boy room…I cried my eyes out all day while we were doing it. He’s sleeping great though and now we can officially make our nursery. For the first time I actually feel excited about this baby. That is sad, but unfortunately all excitement has been swallowed by anxiety. I can’t wait to meet him, make his room, bring him home, be his mom…not necessarily in that order
I’m starting to really look pregnant which is good since people were giving me lots of concerned comments and looks…not my fault!! I have no idea why this one has been so different – not like I got a choice in it! He’s moving a LOT now though and that always makes me
I hope the new year gets less messy, healthier, calmer, and more free of conflict for all of us soon. This isn’t the way I had hoped to start out 2010, but things never go the way we plan! Well, off to hopefully do some laundry and Christmas thank yous before going back to stinky work tomorrow
OH well…vacation had to end sometime!! Happiest of new years to all my favorite mamas
