Hello world! I’m back! Well, I’m here, but I can’t say that I’m “back” at 100%.
We’ve been given a scare from the little duchess last week. Long story short, she’s ready to come out but that just can’t happen right now. So, she’s been in a knock down, drag out, fist fight with my body. I can sarcastically say that it’s been fun on a bun. Like pregnancy hasn’t already made my body feel like a roller coaster. This is like the icing on the most painful cake on the planet. Yay for kids! Needless to say, after 2 days in the hospital, I’m stuck at home indefinitely. That’s supposed to mean no shopping, no driving, no strenuous cleaning, nothing. Yeah right. I’ll end up shooting this baby out while hand -scrubbing the kitchen floor. Sorry baby.
Speaking of kids, my wonderful Sonny Boy “graduated” from preschool the same day I went to the hospital. Above is the little warrior in his cap and gown, goofily looking at his “diploma.” I put “graduated” and “diploma” in quotes because I was un-aware that they had graduations for preschool. Kindergarten, yes, high school, of course, but pre-school? Come on…seriously? Maybe I’m just bitter because I had to dress my kid in a shirt and tie, sit through about 11 songs in a 90 degree room with about 50 other parents WHILE having contractions. The only upside is that my boy looked super cute in a shirt and tie.
And hey, wanna here the totally best part of this whole thing? We have a big birthday party planned for the boy on saturday! So, you know how I’m supposed to be resting and putting my feet up and drinking lemonade? Well, I can’t this week. I got a party to plan. Ooh Ooh! And Sonny is officially out of school, so that means his summer curriculum starts with me this week, so no rest there. And Ooh Ooh! I started nesting. Closets are re-organized, the trash cans have been washed and all of the Duchess’s clothes have been washed and put in her drawers.Well, what I have for her. Turns out, all those things I thought I had stockpiled and stacked up high weren’t really much once I folded them up and looked at what they were. Not many outfits, no socks, and some other things that I know I’ll need right away when she gets home are not in the wardrobe right now. I’m freaking a bit since I have no time to get these things. Looks like we’ll be stuck in the house, literally, for a while until Mama can shop a little more online. At least she has a car seat for us to bring her home. That’s probably the most important thing.
Well, that’s what’s up with me! I’m still here….I’m still alive. Just in case you were wondering….
