Operamommy--a "pity deed"..."pull out your own wisdom teeth..."
: Umm, yeh, I can sure relate! Poor DH. It's like, that's the absolute last thing I want to do when I'm nursing all day long. And who asked the question about pain when DTD? I have not had an epis, but in general all things considered, it's always taken about a year before it's comfortable physically to fool around again. And then, we're like, "Gee, we should have been doing more of this! Why did we wait so long?" DUH! Because I had no hormones and was healing, that's why.
Mamabeth---Sorry about your impending loss. Death sure is tough to watch. It really makes me think, too. I always am reminded how short life is, and remember that I want to be remembered for being a good and gentle person, and loving and nurturing to my family. Thanks for the reminder about life being so short. Even though you didn't mean to remind us.
Hugs to all of you who have experienced a loss like that lately. Hugs Rachel!!
Allgirls---I hope the house thing works out!! It sounds exciting but exhausting, kind of. Hope you'll treat us all to a picture of your new house, if you're comfortable sharing that.
Ryleeee--I love your posts too! I know they'll always make me laugh my hind end off, you sure are funny! I love how you are human and realistic and just plain COOL. Plus, you like the library...way cool. In fact, I love all the mammas in this group! Even when I don't have time to do anything but read, it's always 15 minutes well spent and therapeutic! It just makes my days even better. I love the dose of reality and laughs from everyone. I love hearing about how the babies are doing.
Speaking of babies, little Hillary is crawling and standing, and has almost two teeth, and she started EATING! She loves green beans and corn pasta, in fact she'll eat anything I give her or she manages to stuff in her mouth. DH is all anxious, he's saying, "You shouldn't give her that! Start with some mushy food! Isn't that too hard for her to eat? Can't you mash some sweet potatoes or something?" Since when did he become so worried about it? And I'm like, "Well, look, if I don't give her these green beans she's gonna chew my hand off. Maybe you'd like to stick YOUR hand in her mouth and then try explaining why she isn't getting any beans!" OK, so today I thought I'd be a good compliant wife (ha ha, yup that's me!
) and bake some sweet potatoes and mash them up for Hillary. I did make them, but the other three kids ate them before they hit Hillary's tray at all!
I had a bit myself. I told Hillary she'd get to taste them in the breastmilk. Tomorrow we're back to green beans and stuff. It's all organic, it's all soft enough for her to eat, and she loves it. She probably eats a grand total of about two spoonfuls of food a day.
Tomorrow is June, everyone. Who's gonna be awake first and start the new thread?
Good night and hugs, everyone!!!
