Hey - whew! Nice to have dh home for the night, as he's between flights tonight, and he brought 2 friends w/him, which is nice (and they're staying at a local hotel, which is even nicer, I gotta admit
), but it throws the WHOLE schedule off kilter. 9pm and Beca's still rolling around the house in roller skates, the baby has avo all over his face, the kitchen is wrecked, the dog hasn't been walked, it's all downhill. All done now, though. I get into high gear and it's 20 min start to finish kids in bed, washed, nursed, read to, loved, left. (where's that WHEW smilie???). Did I mention that dh broke the baby AGAIN?!?!?! He's such a
basically he was showing off to his friends and he's holding the baby on the deck table outside and he 'collapses' and dh lets him fall and he conks his head AGAIN and now he's got TWO big bruised goose eggs
Nighttime diapes. I've been using the Valor Kids diapes with a trifold hemp liner and an extra fleece topped hemp on top. I use either the PUL or wool cover, depending on what's clean. Works for about 11 hrs. superwell w/out any pottying. In the 12th hour it starts to wick a little - esp. the PUL. We use jammies and a/c all night, so I don't like night time pottying. It wakes him up too much.
Karen - can we PM w/three of us? I've never pm'd... are you starting to feel home now? The exhaustion from such a long trip often takes me about a week to recover from. Last year we went to Vancouver and a bunch of other places for 6 weeks. It was awesome, but also really really tiring. At least I was out of my first tri for most of it
Jeni - OUCH OUCH OUCH!!! I can't believe he'd even PULL a tooth w/out full numbing (let alone TWO!)! In the old days at least they'd give you shots of whisky or some morphine or something
You are BRAVE mama!! I'da been dousing on the pills for a week before going back...
: I think - aside from birth (which was LOUD, btw) - I have a pretty low pain threshold... my eyes water with pain a lot and I sometimes hit back when dh steps on my foot (which he does frequently).
Well, I think I'm off to bed. It's a long couple of days BUT Beca has a camp sleepover on Thursday night, so I get to go to my drumming and bring Ori but not have to rush home to pick her up from babysitting or anything. COOL!!!
She's loving camp, and is really looking forward to the sleepover. YAY!!! Caio mamas! Andy
