Caroline, I'm there with the others. I know I would be excited about a surprise, even though I don't really want another. I'm sorry for your loss.
Well, I feel like the biggest
right now because yesterday I left DS sleeping in the Love Sac in the living room, and he fell out! I think I was crying more than him. It was only a short distance to fall, but STILL. I have learned my lesson about that, and from now on, will have to transfer him to a bed or something when he naps.
On the housework thing, I think I'm spoiled in a way, since DH had the mom who does everything the "correct" way, he jumps in and does it, but on the other hand, I hate always being wrong. I am lucky that he's such a foody, though. We fight over who gets to cook dinner!
I totally admire those of you who can work and be a mom. I don't know that I could do it without going insane. We are really considering it, though, if we can't get caught up with our finances. It seems everytime we try and pull ourselves up and get bills paid, bad things happen. Yesterday DH's car got a flat (irreparable) and mine needed a new windshield, brake pads, headlights, etc. to get a new plate/registered and stuff. Aggh!
