OMG, THIS!!! My DH also tells me all the time to just "let it go". But you can't just leave spilled chocolate milk all over the floor, the clothes do need washed occasionally and it would be nice to not give birth in a filthy house!
Crafty - CONGRATS! I can't believe how many babies we have already. DH's comment is priceless, funny how clueless they become in those situations.
Skycheat- Congrats to you too! Callista is gorgeous.
emcol - have you heard of the Hibiclens treatment for GBS? I have heard it is quite effective and may help you avoid antibiotics.
mamapigeon - lol about DH. My DH is also a willing volunteer to that cause as well. I just feel so huge, achy and awkward the very thought of DTD is comical to me right now.
We had a nice day here. It was only 85 today which is so much more pleasant than it usually is down south this time of year. I managed to take the girls to a playground and do a very short walk around the nature trail where they saw 3 kinds of butterflies, some mushrooms they haven't seen before and pretty blue dragonflies. I definitely needed a nap afterwards but I was so glad I was up to getting them outside and doing something fun. Baby is still feeling pretty low and at times the pressure is a bit intense but I guess that's a good thing at this point right?
They head to their Granna's on Tuesday and I hate to say it but I am so thankful. The house is a wreck and I feel like I can't possibly keep up. I really need to find a way to teach them to clean up more after themselves. There are craft supplies, books, and toys strewn about daily, food left out, crumbs and spills all the time. Between that, the dog and cat and getting their snacks and meals I am just DONE and exhausted. I was about to finally get to the kitchen tonight and DD2 ended up gagging during a coughing fit and barfing all over my bedroom floor which made me just start crying. Even though we otherwise had a good day I was just so fed up with the mess at that point. I know other moms whose homes seem immaculate compared to mine all the time and I have no earthly idea how that is possible!
