Well first and foremost I must congratulate Amber and Matt on the birth of their sweet new baby boy (with no name yet). He was born this morning weighing 7 lbs and 4 oz. He's lovely. I'd share a picture but I don't fee like that's my place so you'll have to wait until she gives me permission to do it on HER blog...or until she does it herself.
I feel like crap. For some reason I always felt like Amber and I were at the same point in our pregnancies (even though I knew we weren't). Now that she's had hers, I feel sad that I'm not having mine...for quite some time. I'm pregnant all alone. It's just depressing. I dunno why. Just leave me alone and let me whine.
So I journeyed OFF base (yes people, I FINALLY left the base) to grab some fun prizes to take to Amber tomorrow at the hospital. I always loved when people would visit me in the hospital bringing ME gifts instead of the baby. How selfish is that? So I thought I'd do the same for her. Mother's DO need love.
While at the mall carrying my almost 30 lb 14 month old (because I forgot the FREAKIN stroller...idiot), toting my 30 lb belly (Why? Why is it 30 lbs? Can anyone tell me why?) holding Miah's hand, sweating like a hog and trying to clasp two shopping bags with A finger...I pass a minivan with this bumper sticker...
Uhmm. Okay I'm already pissed off that I'm about to pass out from all that is hanging off of me and now this freakin minivan is gonna remind me of how INcapable I am to be a NORMAL mother? Yeah...nice, thanks. I only wish I had my red sharpie to add to it...
"But not all MOTHERS were born capable of DOING IT."
Don't you think if I COULD do it, I would? Yeah...I'd LOVE to. I'd LOVE to be a normal woman and boob my kids but since I CAN'T...I don't need a freakin reminder that I'm broken.
Stupid smarty pants.
I wanna kick people like this in the shins.
Sorry, that's a touchy one for me. You all know this.
Tonight we ate some deliciously YUMMY stir fry from PW which I will definitely make again and again (but with cashews next time!!!) Afterwards we, as a family, walked to the school for Open House. It was only for Kora and Miah's school, Jake's is next week.
We found that Kora has a pretty cool kid in his class.
With a name like this who WOULDN'T be rad?
(George is my maiden name if you didn't know)
Kora was so excited to show us her drawings, her desk, her stories and her computer station.
She's on the pelican team at school so she HAD to show us her Pelican drawing.
And then of course her self portrait that they'll do at the beginning of the year and then again at the end to compare. No, she's not growing a beard, those are freckles...that she doesn't have but wishes she did like Jake.
Miah became a totally different kid when we walked in his classroom. It was like he ruled the world. Seriously this kid has popular running through his veins. He's friends with everyone and allllll the kids love him. He plopped right down on the home center couch with Jake and pretended like he was watching TV.
What is that smile? Obviously he learned it from Jake.
He's all about the bling bling!
Before school started I asked him if he wanted the teacher to call him Jeremiah or Miah and he decided on Miah...so there you have it.
We scrounged up 2 bucks from My Lover and bought a few bags of cotton candy from the PTA before we left so we could eat it on the walk home.
Fun night! Great Day! Babies were born!
