Passing the peace pipe to casina
s. Take a deep breath, and I hope you feel better. Take it easy on yourself- especially with an injured rib!
Brayg- I know exactly what you mean about not being able to go anywhere during the day because of naptime. I'm (sort of) involved in a playgroup (not AP) in my area and they keep meeting at 10am, or 1pm, and I'm like "I CAN'T MEET AT THOSE TIMES!!!" My kids sleep from 11-2 ish also, Zach usually sleeps from 12-2 and Julianna from 11-2 or so. I like to go places early in the morning, before the heat kicks in, and be back for a little nap, then take it easy playing at home in the afternoon, YK? I'm going to really get cracking when I get back to AZ about having a weekly outing again with our AP playgroup. A nice early morning playtime with some fellow AP mamas... I need to surround myself with other nursing moms, I am so sick of getting looks and comments from the mainstream people in this world about my toddler nursing!
Oh, I met some MDC mamas up here in WA! I posted in the "finding your tribe" forum that I would be here, so they came up and we had a campfire and made S'mores. One little boy was a little older than Zach and the other little boy was a little younger than him
. They were both still nursing, and cloth diapered, and I felt so comfortable hanging with other people 'like me'. I need to find more people like that in my area, for sure! I didn't need to make excuses for why Zachary needed the "bobby" when he fell down and got hurt. "He just does, OK?!?" LOL.
Rynna, how is Rivkah doing???
I love the name Samaya, Jasanna. "Haeven and Samaya" sounds good together!
How is your DP handling the change of having TWO daughters now? You seem to have eased right into the flow... Except for a few hectic moments, I'm sure! Imagine me with 3 mo. old Zachary and then getting a 4-day old newborn going through drug withdrawels-- bottle-fed with reflux no less! It was a huge sleepless blur those first few months, but it is very nice now
Have a nice day mamas... Try to stay sane in the heat!
