I really did have every intent to be better about blogging and updating and posting and etc, etc. And I just didn’t follow through with it. So, I’m a slacker. Sorry people…
Let’s see, what is new? Owen turned 3 (did I already post about that??) Anyways, my baby turned three, and I had a massive meltdown the day before the 21st. I made tuna melts for dinner, because that’s what I had 3 years ago on the day before he was born. (Although, 3 years ago, I threw it back up, and this year I kept it down.) My massive meltdown took place in the privacy of my shower. I just sat on the tub floor, crying like a fool, feeling sorry for myself and all the great feelings that go along with a pity-party cry. Then, Owen came in and asked me what was wrong with my eyes. Mascara, son, mascara. Oh well. So, I sucked it up, wiped my tears, and proceeded to go downstairs to talk to the hubs about BABY NUMBER TWO.
I had told Hubs that on O’s 3rd birthday, we would make the decision if we would or would not go for baby number 2. Don’t know why his 3rd birthday was the magical date, but you know me. I love to plan ahead. So, we decided to go ahead and actively start trying. I mean, ya’ll, I haven’t been on birth control in over a year. We are prayerful that it will happen sooner rather than later. As the majority of my 4 readers know, I had to use fertility drugs to get pregnant with Owen. I’m seeing my chiropractor once a week and I’m taking vitamins and folic acid and drinking copious amounts of water. I’m charting and taking my temperature and planning…and it all boils down to the fact that I really have no control over it. When it’s time for us to have baby number 2, then I’ll be pregnant. Until then…it’s a waiting game. And I’m not too patient.
Also, for those mamas and dads out there that cosleep, do any of you cosleep with 2 kids? Owen is still in bed with us, and if/when baby #2 makes his/her appearance, we want to have a family bed still. Any suggestions or ideas?
Also, we have “planned” that when baby 2 comes along, I will have a home birth. I’ll stay home with the kiddos and homeschool them. I mean, I have always wanted to be a mama. I’ve always wanted to be granola and green and organic. And for as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to homeschool. I mean, Always. We are looking into Calvert curriculum. It’s a secular based curriculum, which I think appeals to both Sean and me.
Well, I think that’s it for now….I’ll try to post sooner next time, but don’t hold your breath.
