This week needs to end… pronto. I have 6 kids here from age 2-8 everyday and I am ready to strangle the nearest one, whoever that may be. Ironically, the one that you would think would be the hardest to handle, the 2 year old, is the best. Johnny is acting wonderfully, minus an occasional outburst because someone gets on his nerves or takes what he is playing with. These are the days that I wish (more than anything) that I could just stay home with my kid(s) and not have to babysit. I get tired of dealing with other people’s kids and then having to hear how perfect they are when I try to tell them something their “angel” child did. Not to mention the constant flow of illness that is brought into my house. Regardless, we need the money so I have no choice. I do think I will make some changes after my maternity leave though.
Anyways, add Mike acting clueless, my house not being kept up and just being pregnant (ie. hurting, crabby, sore, swollen) and I am just ready to crawl into bed until the weekend comes. Thankfully, next week will be easier. I have a doc appt on Monday in which I am expecting to start Procardia so hopefully my contractions won’t be felt as often. On Thursday, I have my ultrasound to check on the previa. After that, Mike and I are going to get our flu shots and get them out of the way. Johnny gets his on Friday… which I feel horrible about but also feel we need to be protected throughout the house. (I know there are different opinions on this… this is what I feel is best though). I have no daycare kids on Thursday or Friday which really puts a hit into my wallet, but it will be nice to have a few days with just Johnny… and Thursday with Mike and Johnny. Mason and Mackenzie will be leaving this Sunday to go stay with their mom for the rest of cycle break so they won’t be here. Hopefully, I can get some much needed rest.
