I'm pretty sure that would be the best pregnancy reveal ever.
And no...never had a dust issue. But Adair is afraid of power lights, particularly if they blink, move, or change in any way. There's one on our external hard drive that blinks, and if I leave her in the living room when it's semi dark so she notices it, she freaks out about being "scared of that blue light!!!!" She used to loathe the parent unit of the baby monitor too, and still brings up how scary it was sometimes, even though we haven't used it for months. Toddlers are strange creatures.
My Nanna's life support was turned off today. I haven't heard anything but I am assuming it's either already been done or will be soon and she may already be gone. They scanned today and found she had no brain activity. I am so sad right now, my manager at work walked passed as I got the news on the phone so she saw me get all upset. I can't cry though until Ronin is in bed and when we go to the funeral I will have to hold it together as well. I really really want a bfp now, I need some happy news, but still not feeling it.
Crazy about the dust thing. And I'm with Janice, Evan loves lights in any shape or form.
Wendy, I'm so sorry you are going through this. Night time cries seem to work. But if I couldn't hold mine in until then last week, I would have to leave the room. Or at one point, I broke down on DH's chest in the living room and he just held a pillow out in front of me so Evan wouldn't see and get scared. Still sending prayers for your family.
It's weird--Adair loves all other lights. Christmas lights are a huge hit. But she intermittently decides to be scared of power lights. It is SO WEIRD. This morning she said she was afraid of our alarm clocks, or rather "Those radio things with red letters" lol
Thanks Leigh. This has been a little rough. We were so close, our whole family is. I called he and my grandmother everyday. It's a little weird talking to only her now. DH had made the comment before that when he first started hanging around our family, he didn't know how he was going to help me get through him passing. I knew it was close and I told DH that I was afraid I would mc this pregnancy if it happened during it. I'm doing my best to not dwell and stay destressed. So far I think it's working. It helps a little that he and my grandmother knew it was going to happen sooner than later and they were at peace with it.
On a happier note, Happy Friday Everyone!!! My little monster woke up on the very wrong side of the bed this morning with some serious attitude. It finally got better as we were leaving the house. Crazy kiddos!!
Knowing it's coming and having the time and ability to make peace with it certainly helps, but I know you must still just really miss him! I'm glad at least that worry about your grandmother isn't adding stress, though. She sounds like a strong lady.
Our little monsters are funny! Adair has been just...full steam ahead lately. She's either the best thing that has ever existed or making me want to pull my hair out pretty much 24/7. Fortunately the balance has been on the "best thing ever" side, so overall I'll take it. It sure is entertaining most of the time!
For example she was horrible--just HORRIBLE--to DH a couple of days this week, and it was really breaking his heart. Then yesterday he got an "I love Daddy" and from then on she's been completely fine with him. So frustrating but...short lived, at least!
