I felt super crappy yesterday, and I know that it's because I'm anemic but there's really nothing I can do about it. I can't afford Floradix and iron tablets make me so constipated I can't think straight. I'm already constipated, God knows I don't need help there!
T: How do we get the old "rolleyes" smiley back? I don't like the new one at all!
A coworker of Mike's had a yard sale last weekend and brought all the stuff he didn't sell to work for people to take for free. I went through all the kids clothing and ended up with two big boxes full of stuff!
None of it was small enough for Eli, to say nothing of NewBean, but a lot of it will fit my nephew and is going to him on Saturday. It is definately to my advantage to choose clothing for him as I'm going to be seeing all of it again in a year or two. :LOL Anyway, Mike's coworker has a girl and a boy, both of whom are skinny, so he had lots of little girl's slim stuff, sizes 4-6X. One of my nieces is also a slim, but she needs an 8 for the length. The other is a 6X/7 and there's nothing slim about her. :LOL She's a tank!
Still, I took all the nice jeans; some of them are unisex and will fit my nephew and Eli later, and the others were just too cute to pass up! I'll find something to do with them, even if it turns out that NewBean is not a skinny-mini like her brother is.
So I had fun and got a lot of clothing, but still nothing girly for NewBean. There must be something I'm forgetting to do, karma-wise...
Eli is very tired right now, but he's playing with his favorite truck (the one he's named "Chevrolet") and he will not give it up. I have a feeling that if I went to the bedroom to lie down, Eli would come flying in and just pass out. He had a very long day today! We went to a LLL meeting this morning, where he got overstimulated and was in quite a hurry to leave as soon as I stood up.. He went running for the door, "Open, open! I go!" and as soon as we were in the hallway he was totally zen. We got into the car and his relief was palpable.. all those toddlers were just too much for him! He did very well through the meeting (except when he fell and cut his lip open
and when a woman who'd left her infant in his carseat on the floor yelled at him "DON'T TOUCH THE BABY!!!" as he got close to the kid) but he was very obviously pleased to leave. I just think it's fabulous that he can let me know things like that, kwim? I'm fascinated by the way he (and all babies) communicate.
Even though my belly is definately smaller than it was carrying Eli (I can still button all the buttons on my overalls!) I have definately entered the 'beach ball smuggling' phase. :LOL My mother thinks that my belly only looks smaller because *I* am smaller, but she's mistaken; I'm actually not that much smaller than I was. The belly, however.. well, I think it's because she likes to sit transverse. When should I get worried about that? I don't think a transverse baby can deliver vaginally...
I also will have to remember to ask my doctor if he will deliver a vaginal breech. My MIL was absolutely shocked when I told her that most won't; her first delvery (SIL) was breech and she said "Enough people should have learned watching me. All I heard the whole time was 'Come in here, you gotta see this!' There must have been a dozen people in there!" It really surprised her to hear that these days, a midwife is more likely to deliver a vaginal breech than a doctor is.
Awww!! Eli just walked into the bedroom and came back out again. I said "It's all right, you can go lie down if you like." He looked up at me and said "nap". I said "You need a nap?" and he said "Please. And nursie nursies." How can I say no to that?
