Chapsie, if it makes you feel any better, a friend of mine sat on one of my kitchen chairs when she was about 8 1/2 months pregnant and it broke underneath her. Fortunately she wasn't hurt - but the point is, it's not just kiddie chairs that are devious and out to get you!!! I can't sit in them at all now (kiddie chairs I mean) - it just feels very uncomfortable. Ditto the bench outside DD's classroom.
Melany your son is adorable - love the Harry Potter look. We are making valentines today after school but since I refuse to go anywhere near pinterest they will be the construction-paper-and-stickers variety. I kinda suck at crafts. DD has far surpassed my artistic abilities at this point.
I'm feeling a bit blue today - my uncle died yesterday and, while not unexpected (he had pancreatic and liver cancer) it's still earlier than anyone expected. These things are always hard - there was no hope that he'd recover and he was in pain and suffering greatly so I'm glad that he didn't suffer longer, but his absence still leaves a hole in our family. My mom is there with my other uncle and my other aunt will be there in a day or two. I wish I could go over but transatlantic travel just isn't smart at this stage, and my presence is hardly necessary. Unfortunately it also means that the lovely big old Georgian house that I have such fond memories of will have to be sold - my Grannie died 2 years ago and it was too big for my two uncles who were left living there; there's no way my one remaining uncle could keep it. So it's like a whole part of my life - all our lives - is going at the same time.
But, in more positive news, DD had her annual doctor checkup today and aside from being in perfect health, she grew 5 inches in the past year. I *thought* she'd gone through more clothes than normal in the last little while...
And speaking of growing out of clothes, all of a sudden most of my pregnancy pants don't fit. They're all over-the-belly ones and they're all too tight and uncomfortable. I don't know how THAT happened overnight. I still have a skirt (that I was regretting buying because it was too big, but it's all good now!) and a pair of track pants and some leggings that work, but it's going to be hard dressing for the next little while. I don't want to buy anything else though - I only have another month or so! Argh!
