Parents Can Take Care of Everything

Remember when you were younger, or maybe still now, how you thought your parents could fix anything? Literally, if anything went wrong, you could whiningly yell, "Mom!" and you'd be assured she could come help. Parents are pretty amazing and can do anything, and Kyle and I are trying to be like that for James.

Just yesterday night, I told myself I was ready for him to come! After hours and hours of working after school this week, my sub plans were finally complete enough that if I didn't come to school for the next 8 weeks, the sub would know what to teach. They aren't particularly detailed, but there's a good outline for her. On top of 'finishing' sub plans, I came home to a wonderful surprise- Kyle had cleaned the whole house! I immediately breathed a sigh of relief and said, "We're ready!"

Fast forward to today, not even 24 hours later, and I've had to tell the little guy to stay in for a little while longer. Why? Our washer broke! Something like this was bound to happen; last night was just a little too blissfully happy. However, now that the washer is broken, I'm in total parent mode- we've got to get this fixed ASAP! We have only two clean crib sheets!

Mom and dad to the rescue via Whirlpool repairman who's coming on Wednesday. : )


My doctor's appointment went well yesterday morning- little man had a heartbeat of 150 and surprisingly, my blood pressure was normal! I thought it would have skyrocketed with all of the stress I had felt this past week. For now, we're enjoying watching all of his movement. He's a little running man in in there with all of the 'feet' we see going across my stomach. Websites have said that baby is developing his sleep/wake cycle at this time. If that's truly the case, we've got a little guy who doesn't like to rest! Especially between 9:30 and 10:30 at night.

Our trip to the Farmer's Market was glorious this morning. We picked up a 3.75 lb zucchini for baking and only $1!  Of course we bought a 7.75 lb butternut squash for making soup ($2.50)! Talk about value!  Can't wait to dig into the zucchini bread Kyle's already whipped up!  Now to figure out what to do with the pound and a half we have left...
Hope everyone's enjoying a beautiful weekend.  The weather in Columbia couldn't be better.  We're on our way to the park for my second walk of the day!
