Re: Political leanings - Ha! Did you think I would tell you my political affiliations? lol. Only 2 people in the whole world know this information about me. I like to keep an air of mystery about me and since I am such an open book, it is my ONE area of mystery! However, EVERYONE who knows me knows my feelings about the birth environment in the US.
I can't keep my feelings about that to myself.
Re: Age - Oh, geeze. I am sorry that you are having to deal with this
and others! I am very familiar with your plight. I got married when I was 20, 1st kid at 22, 2nd at 25, 3rd at 28 and will have this one by 30. I did manage to earn a bachelor's degree in there and I do think higher education is important (and not mutually exclusive with having kids!!) So, I am familiar with the crazy pressure to wait...wait...wait... For what? Really? You are NEVER ready. I am so happy I didn't wait. My decision was what was/is right for me in this regard!!! People are done judging it (at least outloud) now that I am on my fourth child.
I hope your telling goes smoothly!!
Food issues - I am struggling with food, too. I am a SAHM and NOTHING sounds good! I ran to the store the other night at 10:30 because all I wanted was Fig Newtons. Turns out, it wasn't what I wanted! hahaha!
So sorry you are feeling sad about putting your DS in daycare. Adjusting to something new is always hard. I hope the transition is a smooth one.
AFM - Not much going on here. Still nauseous and tired. Weird boob feelings.
I am still nursing DS, and I am starting to feel over it but battling two desires. 1. wean cuz this is painful and so annoying to me and my milk is dwindling and that makes him mad and 2. keep nursing him cuz I know it is what is best for him and my usual minimum is 2 years and I generally practice (and believe in!) Child-led weaning. ugh. I will prob wait it out a little longer.
The house deal ended up not happening. The sellers wouldn't accept our final offer. I am usually a pay what it takes to get what you want kind of girl and I really think our final offer was more than fair to the sellers. Unfortunately, they didn't see it that way. Maybe after a little while longer on the market with no action will help them see it. :/ I know that our house hunting will lead up to the perfect place... It has been three years of searching though and I am getting tired of it. The reason for it taking so long is that there are not many lots with 1+ acres with regular, non-mansion, homes available in this area... But we WILL find something, RIGHT? lol.
I haven't been on much lately because of sick kids and this computer screen making me kinda nauseous. Hopefully, that will subside soon!
