I usually do it at stressful times in my life. I don’t see this as a very stressful time, but sometimes we don’t recognize stress. My mom came over a little bit after we woke up and she watched Shrek with the kids. We finally looked at some of the extras on the DVD and I couldn’t believe they had Donkey on there singing, “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mixx A Lott.
Call me an old fogey, but this didn’t seem like a kids song. Why won’t the media just let our kids be kids? Well, that’s another whole topic altogether.
I actually did some dishes. *pass out* It only took me about 20 minutes, but when I was done, I was p-o-o-p-e-d. I still don’t have much energy. I promised myself with this pregnancy I was going to exercise. HA! So much for that. Although I did get a yoga tape from my sil for Christmas. I’ve never done yoga, but I know it’s good for relaxation. Relaxation is always good. I’m wondering how much of it I will be able to do since it’s not a yoga tape for preggos. (They do have those). I hope they don’t have my butt trying to get into weird positions. roflmao! Most likely my girls will want to do it too. Maybe it will get them all relaxed and sleepy. So maybe I’ll try it tonight…if I don’t get too lazy.
My baby gets her cast off in 5 days. I will be so happy, and I’m sure she will too! The cast cover is getting so dirty. She’s 19 months so you know the messes she can get into. Part of the cast comes over hand, so when she’s eating, she usually gets something on it. I wipe it off, but cast just doesn’t come clean. I’m also sick of giving her baths with a bag on her arm. I can’t wait to dip her whole body in the tub! I bet she’ll sleep better too. She looks so uncomfortable at night. I’ve never had a broken bone so I don’t really know what it feels like. Right now her arm is healed, but we couldn’t get an appointment until next week. :/ Wish I had a saw! j/k! A lot of people asked me if social services came to talk to me. I’m like, why? I guess it is standard in this day and age for CPS (Child Protective Services) to investigate or question you when a small child has an accident. My Gosh! Kids can’t even have accidents anymore without the government bamming on your front door asking what color drawls you have on. (Okay, maybe that’s a bit much) But geez. She was playing with her big sister and fell off the bed. I guess they had no reason to believe that I was harming my child cause they never asked me a thing. I’ve been watching them like a hawk though. I don’t want any scrapes or bruises for the next year or mommy might get sent to jail! 😀
Pregnancy Note: The baby’s heart pumps about 25 quarts of blood a day during this 4th month. This rate will increase to 300 quarts of blood a day by the time the baby is born.
