thanks. unfortunately, we have to wait till 345 this afternoon to get in to see the ped. bummer. i have succumbed as television as a comforting device (we don't let the kids watch it), and it seems to be helping ds#1 cope- he has a superhuman tolerance for pain and discomfort, so to see him truly responding to being sick is heartbreaking. ds#2, though also sick, is bouncing off the walls (thank you, television).
on an up note, my MIL came down (an hour drive from her home). between her being here sporadically over the next few days and the weekend coming, and her eventual move in with us to help with childcare for when i'm in labor, i think that my days of trying to manage the kids alone are over. someone will be here with me for at least part of every day between now and when the baby is here... so that's a good thing, i guess. particularly on a day like today.
don't know how much i'll be around today, but i'll certainly check back in with everyone later. i'm sending good labor vibes and baby-stay-put vibes to everyone, depending on their feelings today!
