They're definitely bigger, and dh is lovin' it. I, on the other hand, am not so sure...I liked them before! Isn't that terrible? But, as I always say, I'm new at all this. So most likely, when they start doing they're job, it'll be so exciting and amazing, and I'll be all proud of them as I should be.
Woke up this morning with dh, dog, and cat all in bed sleeping with us! That never happens! What's going on?! Talk about nesting - guess we're all feelin' the love.
Gearing up for the start of a new school year in a few short weeks. So fun to think about working with my dear students (my 1st and 2nd graders from last year will now be my 2nd and 3rd graders, with a new crew of sweet 1st graders) for just 8ish weeks, and then taking time off to be with a new bundle of joy.
So here's my gripe right now, read it if you like, skip it if you don't like: We've been bombarded with visitors this summer, which has been stressful. My brother and his wife are coming on Wednesday for a few days (which I can't wait for b/c they've never been to our little house in the mountains.) The in-laws are coming in the middle of August, and then they're coming back again with SIL's family which includes twin 1 1/2 year-old boys (and she's pregnant again, due on Thanksgiving.) I'm nervous about this visit because they're all staying at our little house, I'll be back at work, and I'll be 6 weeks from my due date. Oh - and as my MIL let me know, the boys will be terrified of the dog.
: So we'll both be at work all day, I'll come home needing a nap (which I refuse to deny myself esp. if boys are crying at night?) they will have been here with our crazy 2-yr old pup, and wondering what we're going to do for dinner? DH is wonderfully helpful with cleaning and cooking all the time, but he's made it clear to his family he can't be taking days off because he's saving up time to spend with baby (he leaves at 10 am doesn't get home 'till about 8 pm.) I guess the hardest part of all of this is that dh and I are gearing up for the fact that SIL and her family live in the same town as in-laws, they see each other every single day, they are so in love with the twins, and with her new pregnancy, and are SO proud that she is able to stay home. So we're trying to be prepared for our own baby's pending arrival to be not the center of attention during that visit.
I try so hard not to be so "poor me," but I'm anxious about this visit even though it seems far away right now. I guess, as I keep telling dh, I thought people were supposed to be extra considerate with someone who is pregnant and close to her due date, and not just assume that we're going to be all laid-back and accomodating as we usually are. I know, maybe I should call them up and let them know that a bear tried to get into my neighbor's house last week, and one got into another neighbor's car the week before that - then maybe they'll stay in a hotel! :LOL No, it's hard because we love them so much, they are dear people, and we truly are psyched that SIL is coming to our house.
Well ladies, thanks for listening. With everything else with this pregnancy going so beautifully, I need to concentrate on that and enjoy this visit. At least I know that dh is with me no matter what, and we can lay in bed and giggle under the covers when everyone goes to bed.
