Thanks for starting our october chat-fest, elsanne. Good title. Your new place sounds great, too. I hope the sitch with your mom works out. You're very brave to attempt it, given your past relationship. I hope the move is just what she (and you) need(s)!
fiddle-glad L is healing, and sorry you and dh are feeling icky. I hope it gets better
Renae-what a wild weekend
You go, girl!
Megan-what a big little guy. Can't wait to see some new pics (hint, hint). And, I probably don't delete nearly enough of what I write
KK-hope you're feeling better with the mastitis almost gone. Never had it, at least not full blown. But the weird yeasty-thing I got made me sympathize with any breast issue while trying to nurse. Hope you're all better by Friday so G and I can still come by and play
Did you hear that everyone? KK and I are going to meet on Friday! Isn't that great! I've been so jealous of all you other moms getting to visit, so now that I'm within 3 hours of another May Mama, I'm taking advantage.
Never been to disneyland, but went to disneyworld when I was 11 and that was before there was Epcot and all the other cool stuff. I'd love to take G someday and dh has never been. I feel a little
: about it, too, but all things in moderation, right?
jstar-hope the morning sickiness isn't too bad, yet. I didn't have it last time until the 2nd full month, but it lasted for what seemed like forever, even though much is a vague memory. Hang in there!
Kudos to you for sewing a costume. G wants to be a cowboy, so that's easy enough. We've been assembling boots, shirt, sheriff's badge, stick horse, etc., for a while, so I think he's almost all set. He picked it out and at first he wanted to be a "cowboy pirate" so I'm glad he's at least narrowed it down. I didn't really thing he'd go for an eye patch and peg leg, so this will be easier.
TC-like the name! And glad you came up with something you're all happy with!
Well, AF paid a visit yesterday so guess I'm not pregnant this month. But, I'm okay with it. I haven't been charting for the past couple months anyway. I didn't like how the chart started controlling ME the month or two I did it...even though I was an active charter when conceiving G. I guess I just don't want to try so hard this next time, IYKWIM. I feel familiar enough with my cycle and ovulation patterns to know when I'm fertile. And last time I realized our timing had little to do with when we'd conceive. It will happen when it happens, and not a minute too soon. So, we're not actively "trying" (I really don't like that term, anyway) but not trying to prevent anything, either. Trust, trust. That's what I learned with G, so I'm trying to get to that place again.
All that said, I'm really cheering for you emmalola. I hope it works out how it needs to. And you are really brave for doing all this while living with family. Not an easy situation you're in.
Will you be staying with your dad long? My dad has remarried and/or dated several times since my mom and I could never live with any of them.
Okay, I better turn off the Backyardigans and go outside and play "soccer ball" with my boy. He's all about balls and cars these days. He does still love his little kitchen, though. As long as he's washing his cars or balls, that is. What a boy I've raised!
Love to all my may mamas! :mwah:
