Yes, glad to hear that you got your Chinese food! In a day or two you're going to be up to your neck taking care of a tiny newborn, so I'm happy that you got to pamper yourself a little now. How sweet that Costas wants you to be able to go to the Nutcracker with him. :) I hope that if Cricket isn't here by tomorrow, you can go and enjoy it with him.
Eeeee, can't wait for an update!
I'm kind of hoping to be able to go to the show with Kostas too ;) LOL
I ended up soaking in the tub last night because my pelvis and legs were so sore :( It seemed to help though.
People are starting to post on my FB.... My SIL irritated me the most because she acts like I'm invisible or just a vessel for her nephews. :angry4: She posts stuff on my FB directly to Kostas and now Cricket, never referring to me or asking how I am. It gets so old and it is just the tip of the iceberg. It was NOT what I needed first thing this morning.
We are going to go pick up a Rx I need more of and a couple other things I will need postpartum, get some lunch and then I think we are going to walk to a nearby park for me to get the walk in and Kostas to get to play.
Awwww, I'm sorry that your SIL doesn't treat you the way she should. That is crappy to ignore you and act like you're just a vessel for her nephews. :(
I hope that your pelvis and legs are better today, and that you and Kostas have a great time in the park. :)
That would annoy me too! Hope everything else keeps going well. :)
Wow I'd be pretty put off by your SIL's actions too. It's not hard to address all of you at once. I hope you had a blast with Kostas today!
We didn't end up going to the park but we went to the local museum where, on Tuesdays and Fridays, you can help feed the sea critters they have from the local bay. My brother even went with us and we had a great time. Kostas really got into it and fed a ton of critters and then one of the ladies that worked there hung out with Kostas looking at all the critters and answering his questions and teaching him about the stuff.
Cheesin' by the sea star
Just got done feeding one of the big Xmas anemones
Watching a couple crabs fight with my brother
Getting a biology lesson :)
OOOH, I love that they latched on to Kostas and answered all his questions factually. I bet Kostas remembers lots about this visit in the years to come. So many thrilling things happening! Next: The Nutcracker! I hope you get a really good sleep first!
I can't believe how late I am to your lodge.
And Gardenbug...I miss you too!!! I see you have another lovely grandchild.
Alissa--I need to remember to look out for your lodge too.
Shauna-I need to read back through all the pages. I hope you found the hypnobabies CDs helpful. It definitely helped frame my mindset for success with a natural birth.
It looks like an awesome way to spend the afternoon! How nice that your brother got to come along too. I love those types of environments where kids are encouraged to get involved and can learn at the same time.
I'd love an update Kristen! (I'm not on Facebook)
