Happy to report that I’m feeling a million times better. Not only did I have 3 – COUNT ‘EM – 3 nights of UNINTERRUPTED SLEEP, but I had a massage and a feel so much better now. It’s amazing what decent sleep can do for a woman! I’m less bitchy (a little), less weepy, and less likely to mutter to myself. The pain in still there intermittently but with good posture, Advil, and heat I can keep it at bay.
Also happy to report that the wee beastie is taking his first independent steps! That day I had an audition, couldn’t get a sitter, and hubby stayed home because he was sick. Lucky, I guess. So while both of them napped, I snuck out and did my thing, came back and encouraged the Precious to lean on the wall and make his way to me. Then two minutes later, he walked into the kitchen to his dad. I burst out crying as hubby fiddled with his camera phone and caught the moment.
Perhaps this is why the little bugger is tuckered at the end of the day. And speaking of independence, my little guy wants it. I can’t even brush his teeth anymore. He pushes my hand away, says “Meh!” and does it himself. I can barely get him in the stroller without him attempting ju-jitsu on me. And yes, I even tried explaining to him that we need to take Juju out for a walk. He cares not one whit. And when I finally get the last buckle, he’s all smiles. I can see we’re going to have battles, him and I. Mmmmm.
Of course, he’s learned to lean in to mummy’s shoulder, snuggle and coo and suck her in. I’m doomed.
