Steph!!! You're so cute I just want to give you a big hug!! Good luck with enjoying your time to yourself...I'm sure you'll come back to Owen a much more relaxed mama after a little solo time!
Mamakerry, sorry to hear about Chris leaving and that being hard...it's got to feel strange...but you never know who might take his place!
bu's mama, how nice to finally have the mental space to think about dating! And I bet that free time will feel soooo good, no matter what you decide to do!
green, isn't that giddy feeling exciting! And who knew adults could feel that way too, eh?
Enjoy your phone call!
MsChatsAlot and BelovedK, hello!!
Ah...the single parenting thread I feel most at home in, strangly enough...It's a little weird, because I keep posting below, but I almost feel like I should keep putting disclaimers ("former single mama"). I remember a few times when partnered mamas have come in and posted things accidently, and it always seems out-of-touch, I don't want to come off that way, especially to the newer mamas who join our club. As for me...I'm feeling sooo much better now that my hormones are getting straightened out! I've been cleaning like a mad woman, and am about to post a huge trading post thread to get rid of some fabric that's been sitting around...I feel as if I'm starting to nest already, time to get this house ORGANIZED (btw, I'm a slob and I never nested with the first two
). We'll see how long it lasts!! DP is in a boat race this weekend, having a good time, and it's so nice to see him doing something he enjoys...but it was also nice when his boat tipped, and he called me to bring some warm clothes and something hot to drink
The balance feels really good, and now that my temperment is evened out a bit, things are going reeeaaally well. Oh, and I finally told my grandmother about the pregnancy (she already knew) but I for some reason didn't tell her we're getting married...even though she asked flat out!! Maybe it was the lectury tone, maybe it was because we're still trying to figure out what feels most comfortable to us (I'm leaning towards a pre-nup to opt out of the no-fault divorce laws...we'd be able to mutually separate, but only unilateraly if one person could prove fault). Anyways, family dynamics are bizarre. Oh, and I'm starting to show and only have two pairs of pants that are just b-a-r-e-l-y fitting...anyone got some L/XL maternity clothes hanging around
I got rid of mine, oh, about a year ago!! Thanks for putting up with my chattiness, ladies, I love you all so much
