Aren't we a chatty bunch? But then, we always have been, haven't we?
Julie-- I'm with the others, totally in awe of your sewing skills. That carrier is so incredibly freaking cool!! I mailed that box today, btw. I can't remember if I put the note I wrote into it or not, but it basically said that everything has been in storage for the better part of a year, so while it was clean when it went it, it probably needs to be washed. Oh, and not all of it is labelled "12 mos" but I'm sure you know by now how little the tag actually means.
BeanBean wore it all around the same time last year.
I am sick.
I ran a fever last night, and when BooBah and BeanBean started climbing on me while I was trying to rest, I literally burst into tears. I just couldn't deal with anything, my sinuses were aching and I was so freaking tired I just wanted to pass out. Mike was not thrilled with it, and I just wanted to kick him because he's such a whiny brat when he's sick and I haven't been sick for ages, why the heck can't he get off the computer and deal with them when I am?
: It's just not fair. He called off work this morning, ostensibly to help me with the kids because I'm sick, and that was really nice of him but he yelled at me when I asked him to wake up (at, get this: 11 am!) and actually keep our son from running after me bare naked when I went to bring the car to this side of the street.
Anyway, I ran a whole bunch of errands, even though in an ideal world I would have slept all day; they had to get done and I couldn't refuse the opportunity to do them without BeanBean. I didn't get to take the long trip I've been meaning to make to Manning's
to look at fabulous yarn. I could have, but I was just so freaking tired after going to the post office and the bank that I thought I might pass out behind the wheel.
BooBah talks a fair bit. It's pretty freaky to me, truth be told. BeanBean had many more words at this age, but they were less sophisticated and less clearly enunciated. It's almost like she waits until she's got something perfect before she'll say anything. She still scares me a bit.
I think a big part of the reason that she scares me is that I was really looking forward to enjoying her babyness so that I wouldn't crave another baby too soon. She's moving so quickly, though, that I feel like she's already "leaving" me. I'm secretly glad every time she gets upset when I leave the room (well, not glad, but not miserable) because it reminds me that she is still a baby who needs her mamma. When I see her trying to walk, or hear her talking I want to burst into tears and get pregnant right away, and that would just be a bad scene all around.
I tried those Instead cups for AF. I think it's too big for me.
I was just really curious about it. I like the idea, you know? I've been thinking about trying a Keeper or Diva Cup or something like that, or maybe Sea Pearls. I really like the idea of non-disposable menstrual supplies to go with non-disposable diapers, you know? And I'm keen to do anything which will maximize airflow and thus minimize unfriendly growth.
Over in WAHM Well, I'm sure that there's a sticky delineating the rules for discussing a business on MDC. I really ought to get my butt over there and read it, too. :LOL I think that you're allowed to recommend products that you don't make (i.e. my comments about the sling Liessa made for me
) but not things you make for profit, unless it's to describe or make a general recommendation (i.e. "try wool covers" rather than "try my wool covers at www.mysite.com
"). I think that you have to pay to have a business link in your sig. I could be wrong about any of this, though; it's all stuff I've intuited from prior conversations. At any rate, if you start selling carriers and I start selling soakers, we'll talk about each other. Deal?
Vaxing-- I get a lot of flack for not wanting to give the kids a dozen shots at a time. Sorry, but I need to know what's going in, and I want it going in one at a time. BooBah didn't have a single reaction after any of her shots, and I'm convinced that it's because a) I waited until she was 6 months old and b) I waited a week between each shot. BeanBean ran a fever the first few times and it made me so miserable not to know exactly what was making him sick.
Mike really wants me to let him on the computer. I have so much more to say!!
Ah well. I *will* be kicking him off tonight. He played that game last night while I was sick and miserable and dealing with the kids, and he had the day off and four hours (yeah, it took me that long to go to the post office and the bank
) with just BeanBean and I totally need the break more than he does.
: Okay, I need to chill. More later!
