i mean, it's all roses and rainbows after it comes out of your belly!

my husband keeps mentioning he'd not mind a later one, as it's so much easier to be pregnant than have a newborn, at least for us!

the saying "having a baby changes you" is so very true. but I wouldn't have it any other way. I like who I am MUCH better now than before I had kids! "mommy-brain" and all. thumb.gif

There were definitely times when I wanted to put her back in winky.gif.  In some ways it's easier to pee umpteen times a day than to change diapers and nurse around the clock.  And now I'm actually going to experience what it's like to carry around possibly up to 14 or 15 lbs of baby in my belly.  Oh the irony.  redface.gif

I do not know how I managed to drive myself and my kids home from town today without dropping them off somewhere and telling them to walk the rest of the way in the rain.   So. Much. Noise.

 

At least I picked up ice cream at the store while we were out.  Kids' bed time is only a few hours away.  And then there will be ice cream.  It's getting me through the rest of this day.

Mom brain is definitely real, but I actually feel mentally clearer when I have a newborn! Sure I'm tired and forgetful but it's... different. I'm looking forward to to not feeling like an idiot all the time!

((((HUGS))))

 

definitely had a few days similar.  just transferred from my phone company, and nothing like having 4 small kids on hand and someone who's not a native speaker trying to start a whole fun phone thing.  SO FLIPPIN' IRRITATING!

Oh gosh, the phone.

On Tuesday I had to make 2 doctors' appointments, call in a prescription, activate my new debit card and call around town to find a belt for my dryer.  And it was raining so the kids were inside.  FUN times.

 

The absolute worst was my Geico calls, before I changed it to auto pay.  The whole system was voice commands, you can NOT choose to just push numbers.  So ANY background noise at all (even if the kids were trying to be quiet) resulted in the automated guy saying "I'm sorry, I didn't get that".

****wheeeeeezing hack**** at that last paragraph!

 

i can't even begin to verbalize how terrible the voice commands are when there's even one well-behaved kid asking occasional questions in the background!  

 

I can't tell you how many times i've about smashed the 'I'm sorry, I didn't get that."  repeat options.    OMGoodness!  just reprogrammed all my numbers, voicemail box, and got through it all.  

 

and the volume around here- i'm so with you on that.  last night, hubby was home for the first time in a while (back from sunny cali) and we were making pizzas together and just talking and finally he just said 'you're all too loud.  go play in the basement.  don't you dare come up until i call you.  or else.'  then after it got quiet, he turned to me with a big sigh and said 'they're just so loud!'

 

really?  REALLY?  thanks!  LOL!!!!  but i am getting more sensitive to it lately.....  just need more rest i think.

so- got an email this evening that a friend's daughter has HEAD LICE.  Now, husband has been grumpy the last few days, sort of just tired and kinda out of sorts, and admitting to it.  but it's wearing on me.  so he's taking a call tonight when i get email and of course i promptly toss all kids in the tub, sterilize my lice comb, and dump olive oil on their ringlety heads and start scraping away looking for any sign of anything!!!

 

husband stays on phone until i'm on 3rd head, and i ask for him to help.  he acts like i'm being totally ridiculous.  he's like 'fine.  i'll help when you're done.  i don't even know what i'm looking for.  i've never seen a louse.'  i tell him to go look it up on the computer, get an idea and come check the heads i've detangled (which if you have curly haired kids you know that they howl and holler at a normal comb, let alone a lice comb!).  he gets really grumpy with me and acts like i'm totally out of my head.  at which point, i pretty much am.  i just want him to come in and double check a head or two and let me know i'm not overlooking herds of galloping lice (i'm tired, it's after dinner and around bedtime) but he's just insisting he doesn't even know what to look for, that there's too many people in the bathroom, that he can't see past the oil that's on my kids heads, and he doesn't know what i want him to do.  and he keeps saying he doesn't know what a nit or egg looks like no matter how many sites or descriptions i give him.  ugh.

 

i leave him w/ kids, comb and tub.  then come in to wash their hair after shampooing.  he is still mad at me, and i'm pretty peeved.  

 

NO LICE!  thumb.gif

 

but man.  i think we'll be fighting for the next 3 days about this!
