No sleeping throught the night for me. I've been taking Tylenol at 3:00 for the last few nights because I've been in so much back and hip pain. Ugh. But then at least I can go back to sleep.
I'm having a rather annoying day. First I found out we didn't get into the preschool class I wanted, even though I really thought we would. The class entirely filled up with returning students (my DD is not currently in preschool at all) so although we were apparently in the next group to be considered (it's at the church of which I'm a member), the list never got to us. The only other option at this school, which I'm pretty attached to, is to send my DD five days. I hate to go from zero preschool to five days, even though it's just a few hours. Bleah. Plus of course five days is more expensive! Not 100% sure what we'll do. We're planning to homeschool gradeschool anyway, but I'd really looked forward to her having this preschool program this coming fall.
The other big annoyance of the day is that I told MIL we're not circ'ing this new baby. I knew she wouldn't be happy, which is why I decided to tell her casually on the phone today instead of wait for her to find out at the hospital, when my hormones would surely not allow me to handle the situation as calmly. I really am totally non-judgmental of all circ-related decisions made by other people, but feel strongly that it is OUR decision, not hers or anyone else's, and that since we've made it she needs to butt out. Her reaction was not even the one I anticipated--I had sort of mentally prepared what I would say in response to the reactions I *thought* she'd have, but instead her argument was unexpected. Basically she thinks his penis will be ugly. Seriously, I expect *all parts* of my newborn child to be thoroughly beautiful and to not need to be cut off due to their ugliness. WTF?? That really ticked me off, and I wasn't even sure how to respond, given that I was totally unprepared for that particular reaction. Ugh. At least that conversation is now out of the way.
