Will you think I am a bad person if I admit that I didn't watch any of the Olympics? I just couldn't muster any enthusiasm for it this year. I even skipped most of the articles in the newspaper. I usually adore the Olympics and watch the opening ceremonies with tears running down my cheeks. This year? Nothing.
My Girly has been particularly adorable lately. One of her latest 'things' is that when she comes and cuddles with me for a story or whatever, she won't just sit beside me. "Mommy, I am not in your circle!" And then she proceeds to arrange us so that she is in my circle. Either on my lap, between my legs or at the very least, with my arm around her.
Unfortunately, now everyone wants to be in my circle and it is getting a bit crowded in here.
I am not sure how we are going to work the cuddles when Zed arrives. Monkey and Girly are continually battling for prime Mommy real estate, what are they gonna do when Zed is attached to my breast?!
Can anyone tell me, is it too much to ask that, when my darling husband and resident handyman, decides to haul the enormous mitre saw all the way up into the teensy bedroom to cut mdf trim to length, he shuts the damn door? I came home the other day to find my bed and furniture and everything else in the house absolutely covered in sawdust. Why, I ask you, why? The freshly painted bedroom he was working in had a door, it could have been closed to protect the rest of the house. But ideally he could have saved us all a lot of work by taking that saw outside on the deck. Because now that freshly painted bedroom has sawdust covering its walls, and I haven't had the heart to look at the ceiling he had just finished painting. Ugh.
I am so excited! I just got back from Superstore/Loblaws with bags of baby goodies. Teensy newborn diapers, wipes, some adorable little organic cotton onesies and sleepers (super cheap!) etc. I was feeling some anxiety about having nothing ready, in case I go into labour at some point. This seems unlikely, as I have never gone into labour on my own before. But you know, a girl can hope.
I am a little perplexed though, as to why I haven't been able to find a nursing bra that fits. I went to all the maternity stores and all the non-stretchy bras were teensy. Doesn't anyone understand that pregnant and lactating women get big boobs? And when your boobs are enormous, you want some support?
I would really like it if the women who work in these stores would stop trying to sell me things that just don't work for me. Don't try and talk me into a 40 dollar bra that I just told you doesn't work for me. I refuse to buy it just because it is the only thing I can find.
I did buy a sport type nursing bra though, I figure I can at least sleep in that and wear it in the hospital. But I have to find something to hold up the sisters in public. Believe me, no one wants to see me without that. These girls have nursed 4 babies! Anyone have any terrific nursing bra recommendations? I can't be the only big chested nursing mom out there.
I don't have an update on the boy from the boating accident today, but I will get one tomorrow. Keep praying.
