DS2 had a great day yesterday!
WF came through with a cake (a very unusually decorated cake, for what reason I have no idea, but it was a cake, it had green on it, and it had his name - spelled correctly!). He put toy dinos on it and was very happy.
He loved the handful of gifts he got and had lots of fun at the zoo's dino exhibit despite being tired. We managed to see the dinos (twice), ride the carousel, go through part of the children's zoo, and then ride the train (which runs in the huge park that the zoo is part of, but not IN the zoo).
We were exhausted enough (even though it was only 90° out and there were nice breezes here and there) that we gladly welcomed a change of plans for dinner. DS had originally said he wanted mashed potatoes for dinner (with some type of meat) but on the way home opted for eating out.
THAT was an adventure unto itself, with no fewer than 4 bathroom stops *before* we got to our table (and since we had a reservation, it was only about 10 minutes!). And DS3, who had been asleep in the car from the time we left the zoo until dinner (an hour plus), was really hungry AND really tired (AND woke up with wet pants, which necessitated some of the bathroom stops and running back and forth to the car for clean clothes). He finally settled down once edamame arrived but that was not before we got some disapproving looks from another table.
I found some comfort when the 2-3yo at THAT table was loudly fussing for his mother who was entirely ignoring him while engrossed in conversation. I was at least *trying* to comfort my overwhelmed and very sad little guy - even if it wasn't going so well.
Dinner was good and they were all pretty happy, so it turned out fine.
And I have leftovers... Mmmm....
My MW comes tomorrow.
I'm eager to see where she thinks baby is at this point. I've had times where I could feel something fairly solid at the top of my belly and could push it and it would move (but not the whole baby). It seems perhaps like that would be a head, but it seemed to move TOO easily.
Feet, maybe? I dunno... Should be pretty clear tomorrow, though. Though I realized I was *supposed* to be on the elliptical daily and haven't quite done that yet.
Though my very valid excuse is we are still not quite certain we've found the right cord for it. I think we will try this one tonight, though, so I can at least be *ready* to be walking everyday.
Fighting with computers and printers to print a pic of DS with his cake to drop off while I'm at WF...
