I guess I'm the early riser this week, so I get to start the first JUNE thread! Woohoo!!
I'm awake because at 5:45am, NewBean decided that I hadn't eaten enough last night. I was dizzy and thought at first that I was still tired after getting up to pee, but NewBean rolled over and let me know that it was, in fact, low blood sugar. :LOL
Got my minivan yesterday... it is FABULOUS! I'm totally in love!
It's way cooler than what Mike & mom & I were expecting we could afford.
My friend totally hooked me up!
It does everything but drive for you... oh wait, it does that too! :LOL Everything but steer! I've decided that I love cruise control. :LOL And I guess I was meant to drive a minivan; I have no problems parking it, even though I'm used to driving a Saturn (waaaaay smaller!) although I do tend to get a teensy bit too close to the curb. Eli really likes it, and he loved the dealership. He kept running to all of the cars, pointing at all the logos.. "Saturn! Saturn! Saturn Vue, SUV!" He got somewhat overstimulated, it's a good thing we left when we did. Being so close to so many cars was just way too exciting for him. :LOL Our friend was totally impressed to see how thrilled Eli was, and to hear him say "Saturn!" over and over again, every time he saw a "Saturn" logo. I'm just totally thrilled with it, now Eli & NewBean & I won't be trapped in the apartment all day just because of bad weather or because I'm too tired to walk or because everything interesting is too far away to walk to.
|I am determined that in order to avoid assault charges and jail time I just better stay home until Isabella is born. I am wayyyyy too hormonal!
: This just cracked me up, because I was exactly the same way when I was pregnant with EliBean.
: I was seriously homicidal, and ended up checking myself into the hospital around 30 weeks because I honestly wanted to kill people and I was afraid I was going to. While there, I talked to the world's stupidest, most obnoxious nurse. She kept saying "Well, if you can't handle being pregnant, how are you going to handle a newborn?" I was like "When you have a newborn, you can hand them to someone else and go take a shower. You can't do that with a gigantic belly." and then she said "Well, then, I assume you're not going to breastfeed." I was like "You're kidding, right? Just because I'm angry right now and I wish I could have a beer [I didn't drink at all while I was pregnant with Eli] I won't breastfeed?"
She kept saying that having a newborn was more difficult than being pregnant and I said "You have no idea what you're talking about." She said "No, I only have two kids." I said "I'll bet you any amount of money that they're both over the age of 15, because you obviously don't remember what it feels like to be pregnant at all." (I was right on with this one; her kids were 18 and 22.) She was such a moron, but it was okay because I was definately right. Eli was *so* much easier to deal with after he was born!! That pregnancy was very hard on me. This one's been easier, but I'm still looking forward to having NewBean out.
Speaking of which... any new babies?
