I tried to post at least four times yesterday, and was always interrupted before finishing more than two lines. So finally I'm trying to steal a moment...
RM- Congrats on the house!! I'm always considering HSing in the back of my mind, but my super-social daughter is thrilled with kindergarden at our community school. I'm very much less than impressed with her current teacher, and feel poised to pull her out the second that she notices... and in the meantime I'm "recruiting" for a HSing co-op so that we'll still have childcare. I think five families each sharing one day a week with the kids would be ideal for us.
tortuga- Huge congrats on the job!! I used to work OB, and felt like so much of the "change" with breastfeeding was just about planting seeds of ideas and minor successes- the couple of days of milk that a baby would get from a mama who decided to "try" it, and the idea that she might breastfeed a next baby, etc. And giving totally awesome support and buffering bad advice for women who wanted to breastfeed. Same went with less unnecessary intervention in births, too...
JayGee- You're making me want a trainer... ;)
bec- Glad the surgery went well!
MM- That's some impressive weight loss!
NRR- I survived the first week of the crazy new semester schedule, and even finished up and made it home a little early last night. Which was a good thing, since once again my youngest was up at five. I'm getting tired of the early mornings, literally. I can't sustain working in the evenings and getting up so early every morning. And she wants to nurse, so there's not really a chance to "trade off" with my husband. Not to mention that she's ridiculously tired all morning, so extra clumsy and whiny and generally needs tons of attention until after her nap :(
RR- Yesterday was a slow slog with the stroller- 30 minutes total but my calves were miserable on the trail trying to push the stroller through bits of mud. I left my usual trail early for the road, and threw in some walking to survive. And for today- hopefully the chance for a short run alone!!
