i don't like the format either. it seems so tech-y and streamlined, not as homey as before. it is nice that you can add a picuture by your screen name. i will work on that...
and, how can you choose a page to read? as in "novermber chat, page 2" ? anyone see if you can do that?
lyterae- i hope too that your birth goes as well as your dreams. it is, at least, a great morale booster.
when i was pregnant with my first, i had so many dreams about her- mostly of her being a dancer and being very bright and she is actually a really amazing little ballet dancer and has a special brightness to her. i didn't have the same types of dreams with my second, and haven't had any this time either- i wish i would b/c i want a sneak peak! i am getting so curious about who she will be.
it is really nice about the suprise shower!
ashley- a weekend on the beach sounds heavenly.
twinklefae- so happy that your appointment was good! that is a relief.
i was a 6 month fill in helper four our girls kindergarten (kind of like preschool) last year and b/c one of the teachers was sick, helped out again yesterday. it was terrible! they have a lot of new and young kids (2 1/2 or 3 yr) who are so energetic and aggresive....i left with a sore back and a bad feeling for everything- except my own kids- who i was amazed at. i felt really proud of them. my older helps out a ton with the younger kids- taking their hands really sweetly and saying "soft hands please" or jumping in at the right times to start a new game with them. i feel like they should be paying her! and my younger was really good at avoiding the drama and finding something fun to do. but, i don't know....i don't want to move them b/c we are so involved there, but it was a little much and explains a lot of behaviors that have been happening around our house.
but, the baby liked it! she was so active when i was there. she is usually more active in the evenings, it was sweet to have her "participating" too.
in other non-baby news, we had to give up on another house that we were looking at b/c it would be too much work for us (we found some really major things wrong,) and i am feeling pretty down about it. it was such a pretty house with a huge eat-in kitchen that i was day dreaming about all of the time......i really want to find a place to settle into.
