pregnant with two... so far

comercial for aspca. 
women's ice skating nationals - long program.  
reading kisses from katie.
having the flu.
trying to tell anyone about the "jane" story from the book kisses from katie (double-ugly-sob).
discussing my grocery budget.
that dang operation christmas child promo video.
select episodes of parks and recreation.

my body feels like it has exploded in the last couple of weeks.
i eat approximately 7-10 small snacks meals a day. i'm starting to feel like a hobbit.
my tummy grumbles and i feel shaky and nauseous.
if i don't eat enough during the day, the grumbles wake me up at 3am, which is cool.
truth be told,
i'm tired of putting food in my mouth.
that is unless it's chocolate cake.

the belly:
it's large and the skin feels stretched tight.
i shudder when i think about how much time i still have.
and i'm extremely grateful for my husband's sweat pants & hoodies.

aches and pains:
yes. already.

so there you have it.  a brief summarization of what's going on in regards to my pregnant self.  i have an appointment on wednesday and i'm really looking forward to finding out some details, like a due date.

and in case you only come by here to read what hilarious things come out of my children's mouths,
here are a few that made me laugh:


after one morning where all the other kids had finished breakfast and moved on to fun morning chores...

me: "bo, tell your bum to stay on the bench until your breakfast is done!"
bo: "but mom, my bum just likes to follow you around."

after giving our sweet respite baby girl some cuddles.

bo: "mom, is this a robot baby?"
me: "no."


after whining about wanting to go for ice cream at 9 am.

me: "jane, whining will never help you get what you want. "
jane: "when i'm done with my whine, then can we go for ice cream?"
me: "nope."


while driving past the road crew digging up massive chunks of road on our street.

char: "mom, are they looking for jewl-ies?"
me: "mmm.  i don't think so.  i think they are working on putting in new water pipes."
char:  "ah. that makes more sense."

happy weekend.


  1. Make sure you are eating high fat foods! And drinking lots and lots! I used to keep muffins on my night stand for the middle of the night... Sherilyn
