it's time

well, it's not really but i wish it was.

today at church someone told me i looked "healthy."

someone not five minutes later said "you look so great... for being due this week!"

i wanted to tell them both "f**k you very much" but thought they might find that slightly disturbing coming from the pastor's wife.

what the...

is it too late to go back? have i made a horrible mistake?

yesterday E and K got themselves out of bed (after sleeping peacefully the whole night long) and proceeded to play quietly until M got up and fed them breakfast. i slept until 8.

later we went to the park, where we met some friends with kids the same age as mine. i spent the time chatting it up with the girls while my boys ran around playing and requiring minimal, if any, intervention.

also, at various points in my day my children will now retreat to their room to play together (again independently) or quietly BY THEMSELVES.

and did i mention that everyone sleeps through the night? as in, they wake me up NEVER?

not to mention the fact that they feed and clothe themselves and hardly ever pee or poop in their pants anymore.

oh goodness.

what have i done?

for kone.

well my, my. doesn't the time fly.

let's do a little fast forward since my last update.

i'm now almost done being pregnant... with a GIRL. i'm 37 and a half weeks and bitchy as hell.

sorry that i haven't been writing lately... it all got to be too much, you know. the daily posting and the constant navel gazing that i had to do to find something to write about day after day... i started to make myself nauseous (or was that the morning sickness?)

anyway, don't go thinking i'm back, because i'm not making any promises. i just wanted to say hi and that i've missed you, even though it doesn't really look like it.

also, i just peed my pants for the third time today and who else was i going to tell?

(note added at 10:53 pm, same night: make that four times. the details are too much even for this blog, but suffice it to say that it was one for the books. sigh. )
