-This man turned 34 a couple of weeks ago.
-Spent a week near Lake Tahoe for work (rough work, I know.)
-Has taken up the task of cleaning all of the baseboards in the house because my back won’t let me.
-Recently planted apple trees in the yard and purchased some strawberry plants for the back porch.
-Turned the BIG 3-0 on Mother’s Day this year and celebrated by not cooking.
-Has pretty bad back pain which inhibits her ever-growing nesting instinct from being fulfilled.
-Spends the majority of her time with two cute boys who occasionally treat her to 5 second foot rubs.
-Continues to have cravings for foods she cannot have due to a gluten free diet like fried chicken sandwiches and donuts, alas it’s probably for the best.
-Is getting excited about being a “good big-brother” again.
-Will play pretend “Boat”, “Camping”, “Dog” for hours.
-Enjoyed a trial day at preschool where he’ll be going next fall.
-Is more afraid/squeamish around bugs then his own mother (she hopes this changes.)
-New words/phrases: “Doing” in reference to asking what I am doing when walking into a room. “Ohhhhhhhh” or more recently “Wow” in response to me telling him what I am doing. “Ank You…Much” which is thank you very much.
-So we put it all together and a typical conversation with Isaac goes like this:
“Doing”-Isaac, “Making you a snack”-Mama, “Ohhhhhhhh”-Isaac, “Would you like a snack?”-Mama, “SNACK!!!!!”-Isaac, “Here you go”-Mama, “Ank You…Much”-Isaac, “You’re welcome”-Mama.
-Spends his days following his brother around doing pretty much whatever he asks him to do.
-Has no time for being consoled or cuddled when upset or hurt.
-Is 34 weeks gestation
-Is the cause of Mama’s heartburn, back pain, nesting, and cravings.
-Plays hard to get when Papa tries to feel a kick or movement.
-Knows he/she is loved and anticipated for by his/her family.
DISHWASHER (Yes, the dishwasher gets it’s own category)
-Decided the best thing to do was stop working while fully loaded with people coming over to the house just hours before.
-Was inspected and treated by David with a grave prognosis.
-Sits unused for weeks now while Lauren decides doing dishes is in fact her least favorite household chore over laundry.
-Has been replaced by these two:
They are more attractive to look at, but way, way less effective than a working dishwasher.
