|Kevin put the drapes up today & installed the bathroom sink!|
|Erin- I wanted to say that I am amazed at how you remember who everyone is and what their dh's do and what is going on with them. I read the posts, but it all seems to blend together, I have a hard time remembering which dh goes with which mama! Anyway, it is really considerate and it makes ppl feel so loved.|
Re: being scared...
I have always been an anxious person. When I was a teenager and was home alone or babysitting I would be a wreck...mainly about someone breaking in to the house. After moving out of my parents, I've always had roommates and now DH. Since having Lil and being home alone most of the time, I've gotten better. I still don't really like coming home after dark to an empty house though. I try to get home before dark or sometimes I'll make up errands to do until I know DH will be home.
Scary movies, books, and lately even the news or Oprah (she's had some intense shows lately) really affect me and give me nightmares and anxiety for weeks. So since getting pregnant I've been consciously sheltering my exposure to disturbing images, sounds, words etc.
Anyway...on a MUCH lighter note...have you guys every heard of Petit Bateau clothes?
I had a gift certificate for a fancy kid's clothes shop from my former co-workers that I just finally used. They were having a half price sale so I bought Lil a one piece creeper with feeties. It's like 80 something percent cotton and says "not intended for sleepwear" all over it so I'm assuming it's not treated with fire-retardants. She's in it now (still sleeping upstairs with daddy )and OMG it is SOOOOO cozy, soft and warm. The woman at the store said this line of clothes washes really well and holds up for multiple kiddos.
I could never afford to buy the clothes full price but I will def. be on the lookout for that brand on consignment or at thrift shops.
What else? DH and I traded chores this weekend until I got overwhelmed with his chores and called the whole thing off! Seriously I was such a big mouth. He was going out to shovel the driveway and I made a big stink about how he needed to stay inside and hang out with Lily so he was like...ok, wifey...do you want to go shovel the driveway?
I said yes without thinking and man was I regretting it. But while I was out there DH wore Lil on his back and cooked us dinner! I could see them through the window as I was heaving piles of snow.
Yesterday he was like ok...so today my chores are that I need to bring wood into the basement for the week (like 10+ wheelbarrow loads) and carry water out to the barn critters. I was like...thanks, but no thanks. I appreciate all that you do SO much more already!!! :
Last night he did a VERY thourough cleaning of the kitchen before coming to bed. I was SO pleasantly surprised this morning when I came down expecting to have to deal with kitchen mess.
Ahhh....as one of my best friends always says....appreciate the perfect moments!!
Off to make some breakfast before Lil wakes. Have a great day mamas!
