Had a great, but exhausting, weekend at my sister's with my mom. We cooked five pans of freezer meals for her for after the baby. She's 38+3 and I'm soooo excited to meet my new niece. I can tell she's getting anxious though - her two girls were really tired before we left yesterday and they were acting up quite a bit. I think adding another one to the mix freaks her out - BIL works in oil fields and is gone for days at a time so she single parents a lot. She'll do great though and I'll go visit a lot. DH was an asshat right before bed, and then right before I left for work this morning. But then he sent me this. I'll keep him I guess.
Hi ladies! I'm back after another period of being MIA. The bar exam was two weeks ago and then last week I had to travel overseas for my grandfather's funeral. I'm back at work today and my last day here is Thursday before I start my new job next week--eek!
I am hoping that in the next few weeks I can get back into a routine of some kind. That is of course until I have a new baby in just a few months and everything gets turned upside down all over again!
laceysbryan, Those thoughts cross my mind at times. Aside from finances, I think about how am I going to chase Leo around with another baby. And this is with my DH around! I want to strangle him when he can't even help take Leo a bath by getting another washcloth ("I can't find it"). But then he sweeps and mops the floors so I forgive him.

We're back from Florida! The week went fast, but it was nice to see my mom. Her house is not great for babies though and there wasn't room in the car to pack many toys so when B wasn't in the pool or eating we watched too much tv. Oh well, vacation I guess. Mh has a couple interviews this week and I'm trying to enjoy the last few weeks before school starts. Hope everyone is doing well!
I figured out what lo had over the weekend... because I've got it too. It came out of nowhere, because I woke up feeling fine, but now I'm achy, my stomach feels weird and I have a fever. The only saving grace is lo is currently napping and lo seemed to feel better after 24-36 hours, so fx it's the same for me.
We did make it to the park this morning. Lo is getting more confident climbing on things. He was having fun smashing chunks of sand until some creeper showed up, took off his shirt and hung it on the playset, and started working out on the monkey bars. Shirtless. We high-tailed it out of there.
laceysbryan sorry yh is being an asshat (I love that word, btw. Lol) but yay for family time! kcrus love it! Haha dashook congrats on the new job! Sorry to hear about your grandfather. reginaphalange3 glad you had a good trip! Fx for YH. ourcrazynavylife I feel your pain. Feel better!

We had storytime at the library this morning and met our friends at the park for a play date. So it was a nice day! Also since being away B seems to be so happy to be back in his own bed that he's been going down easily, hope that doesn't wear off!

littlelion I have a maternity workout shirt that says "training for two" on the belly. I wore that today so he would see it as soon as he came home. After like half an hour of him being completely oblivious I finally said "thanks for the early birthday present". He was of course completely confused like what? And I said the thing you left in the bathroom this morning? Cue more confusion so I handed him my phone with the picture of the + test on it. He was like is that a pregnancy test?! Then smiled and asked dd if she was ready for a sibling??
