I managed to miss a bunch of posts!
Kitty, so glad you're feeling better!
Meta, I used 1-day Monistat a few months back (my first time to try the stuff). My MW just said that Monistat was fine to use, not which kind, so I went quick.
The pack I got had cream for external use, too, which was really helpful because mine was mostly external, too.
Mattress protectors are on my list of things I still need to get. I want to get the Ikea one for our bed but I haven't gotten out there yet and am not keen on taking the kids by myself.
I'd also really like to get new side tables (I don't have one but am currently planning to steal the one that DH has used even though it's not really a bedside table and is super low) and we still need a dresser for the baby and we were going to get chairs for the dining room (we've never had enough or matching ones). But, of course, our budget for most of that disappeared into the bathroom and all the extra work (and fancier tub).
I keep thinking that, if worst comes to worst, I'll send my mom to a big box store for EVA shower curtains to use for the bed, even tho I'd much rather the Ikea-style fitted thingy. At some point, though, I just don't care anymore.
My 3yo is being SO emotional and grouchy and just plain in a bad mood for the last couple of days.
Of course, it's crossed my mind that maybe that means labor is coming soon.
Ya know, little kids reacting to upcoming changes? Ah, well... Likely not but it's driving me nuts.
Against my better judgement I brought home Munchkins from a newly-opened Dunkin Donuts (only one in town and I *needed* water and was only 5 miles away
). I let each of the boys have one, but Judah later found the box and helped himself to another (which I took back to save for him for later). So since then he's been melting down about wanting JUST ONE more donut. He grabbed the box off the counter and was trying to sneak off with it. After I put it away another time, I was in the other room and heard him say, "Yes! Here it is!" and I got in there to see him reaching for it again. He melted down right there with nothing more than saying his name! Umm, I think sugar is NOT a good idea for him!
Later, while I was holding him and he was still crying, he started another sobbing jag because he wants me to push out the baby TODAY! (Which means NOW!) Poor boy... If only I could do that!
Though I reminded him that we're going to Dino Days tomorrow and can't go if baby comes - at least, I can't. If baby came tonight (you know, before midnight so DH and DS2 could still get up and go to 9am breakfast that we've paid for), I'd send the other boys with Grandma to meet up with DH for the rest of Dino Days and I'd stay home with my baby.
