Monique - big
s. I can't believe an exercise ball burst on you. I've seen pics, you're not huge or anything! Even pregnant
I have to admit, when I was in the throes of PPD when Rowan was wee and I used to bounce her on my ball to get her to quiet down enough to nurse, I'd have weird fantasies/daydream nightmares about the ball breaking - I'd occupy my mind with exactly which way I could fall that would cause the least amount of damage to her and the most amount of damage to me so I could take a few days "off" - ha ha. Anyway, that probably doesn't help. I hope you feel better soon. I think you can take tylenol, can't you? Just a little?
I discovered this morning that grocery shopping on my bike with Rowan is not a good idea. We went to the grocery store after playgroup and got some milk, a few zucchinis, some frozen blueberries and a small box of pasta; I'd already picked up bacon and eggs at the charcuterie next to DH's office because we went there for a visit. So I put all the groceries in my backpack, put my backpack on, got on the bike... and heard muffled protests from the baby seat. Turns out that because I am small, and have a small-frame bike, the baby seat is not far enough behind my seat to accomodate a full backpack AND Rowan. Urgh. I biked home leaning far over my handlebars, it was very uncomfortable - but fortunately we only live 4 or 5 blocks from the store. So no more biking for groceries (or at least not gallons of milk and a pile of other stuff.)
Amy, supercute pics. The one where she's asleep, she looks just like Rowan
And in other ones she looks EXACTLY like her mama.
Oh and I'm a fan of the baking soda for deodorizing, but I find it's the lids on jars that hold onto the smell, and sometimes there's just nothing you can do.
Teresa, I hope you feel better soon. Colds suck.
I'm glad all the poops happened and Alicia is home (?) with her baby.
