Thoughts of the day (things I have yet to share)…
- How many people can say their kid has crapped in their hand? I can. Yup, Scott was sick, doc said to give him a suppository. He crapped all over so Ryan washed him in the kitchen sink. Sitting back on the couch, we tried again and he started going again so I caught it. Some did manage to gather on my shorts. What a special moment!
- Is it possible to have a cold and not pass it on to your child whom you’re breastfeeding?
- Put Scott to bed at 10 or 1030, he falls asleep around 11, Pump at 3am to relieve pressure, breastfeed at 530ish, leave for work around 715ish. Pump at 10am, 2pm and head home to feed Scott again at 530pm. It’s a fun cycle. More sleep than most new parents get. It makes sense when you put it on paper why I can’t get anything done around my house. And since I have a cold right now, I get to add to that schedule: up at 2am, coughing for a few hours before I decide to get up and shower since I can’t get any sleep.
- AWANA, this is my first year not helping with the JV kids in AWANA. Its such a bummer to me since its held at our house and I miss the kids. Ryan is doing a good job of letting me be a mom on Wednesday nights but I want to do both and I get frustrated that he doesn’t include me since I still think I’m part of the group.
- We got 2.5” of rain last night with golf ball sized hail. That was great on crops, vehicles and gravel roads.

I share the crap in your hand thing. Both kids did it to me. E did it to a nurse when she took her temp.
I have been sick and not passed it on, not right away. Just wash your hands like crazy. We there is more than 1 person in the house, it is jsut gonna happen, the cold will be a family thing.
As for getting things done around the house. Good luck with that. Pumping, or not, things are never going to be the same. Just when you think you can do sothing, baby will do something new and you will loose yourself in the day just spending time with the little guy. It happens to me every day only twice as bad. :)
Enjoy this time with him when he is little, they grow so fast.

Wow - both of you have your hands full - hee hee ... come on, someone had to say it! :) You guys are awesome and you are doing the most important thing in the world. These little guys are going to make huge impacts for the Lord in the future! That's what is important, no one will care if your house isn't clean! ~ Alisha

Ewww...bad joke Alisha. lol. I agree though, babies are the best and who really cares if the house is clean or not? Friends/family aren't there to see the house, they're there to see the baby! Oh, and you too, of course. ;-)

Hehe. Oh Dear. Is a dirty house and poopy hands what I have to look forward to in 5-10 years???

It'll make a great story to tell his girlfriends in 20 years. HEHE ;-D

Hope you feel better soon!

My MY. No wonder God hasn't gifted me with children yet! I'm not sure if I could handle THAT crap! :) Of course, we can do ALL things through Christ, who strengthens us!!! You are one busy momma and career woman and wife! And don't worry - the AWANA boys still love you :)
