I was watching the live coverage of The Games during lunch. It was the Master's division, men 60+. I wanted to high five every single one of them. These guys all in their 60s competing in a competition like that - they're just amazing.
We had one yesterday with like 8 babies. B gets so much exercise and excitement, he's exhausted that night and the next day. He slept almost 12 hours last night, and has been out for almost two hours for this morning's nap, and is still sleeping!
Sephora really has mastered the science of advertising. I can't think of any other company whose spam I gleefully anticipate, nor can I think of any company whose ads pretty much always make me want to buy something.
Daycare mentioned that for the last few days, when a particular Mom comes to pick up, DS rushes over to her, tries to climb into the carseat or climb up her legs to go home with her.
They said she looks nothing like me.
Tonight there is a cookout at daycare and I'm dying to see who this person is... I really hope she looks like someone we know (maybe my BFF? SIL?) otherwise I'm a little weirded out my kid wants to be adopted by another family, lol
When I used to pick up J there was a little boy who always ran to the door and wanted to go with me. He used to hang on my leg when I was there talking to the teachers and would cry for me to pick him up and when we left he stood at thr door crying for me lol. But this kid was between 18mos and 2!
99% of the time, I couldn't care less if DH saw my texts/pm's/message boards posts/etc. I'm pretty sure the worst thing he would possibly find out is that I eat macaroni and cheese way more often than I claim to.
The 1% of the time I'd care is when his birthday or Christmas is rolling around and I need 7,000 people to validate me with "Yes! This is a great gift idea for him!" because he's hard to shop for, and I second-guess myself.
And even then? Fine, read it, ruin the surprise, you jerk
we're sitting here in the waiting room for ds2's surgery (going well, they say, three or four more hours to go) and this place is packed. There is a mid fifties mom with a teen daughter, the mom is trying to lay on the daughter who keeps shoving her off, the mom is arguing But Im Tired and want to sleep, and they won't.stop. There's a VERY loud man who has spent the last hour talking on the phone about very personal matters, then talking very loudly with the person closest to him in the room about very personal matters. There's another woman who is snoring almost as loudly as Very Loud Man is talking.
Dh and I are quietly on the Internet. I actually napped on the couch for a while, having brought my own pillows to drool on. They said a while back that they were done with his upper jaw, and were starting his lower. This is so incredible.
1) I found a sitter for tonight and will be having some much needed adult beverages with some friends tonight.
2) After a near panic attack that I would be in NOLA on a girls weekend the same weekend my boss and our CEO would be there for an investor conference, I realized that we would just be ships passing in the night if at all. The conference starts the day we leave. ::bullet dodged::
I don't think you're crazy and you're talking a couple days of difference. I say go ahead and do it earlier. Also after I went over 2 weeks past my due date with P, and had the worst time starting week 38, I think there's something to be said about your own comfort here too.
I saw 2 college friends last night and it was AWESOME to catch up. We had such a great night having long conversations over dinner.
My one friend is struggling with infertility, though--I think she's been trying for her first since DH and I started trying for L, so what? 3 years at this point? But the doctors won't do any interventions until she gets her BMI below a certain level. Is this a common thing??? I mean, is this just standard operating procedure for all IF treatments?
I was so mad for her. She's like 8 pounds away from that BMI. She's going to be 39 in a couple of months. Will that extra 8 pounds really make or break these interventions? As someone with a far-from-perfect BMI, it just felt like the worst kind of fat shaming--you're too fat to deserve a child, or something. Rage.
I asked her if she was on any message boards, and she said no. I'm thinking of directing her to TTTC here. But I always get a teeny bit nervous when real life people enter GBCN world. jessnpaul excepted
I think this is pretty standard. The chances of the intervention working increase with a healthy BMI. My brother and his wife have apparently been trying for a while (years) and he doctor said he won't do anything until she was under 200 lbs. My SIL is a very large women, partially due to genes and admittedly life choices as she says. They just started treatment.
Being eight lbs away sucks, but she's almost there!! Hopefully she will be there in another month!
