Dave the Duck has landed!!!
Finally, Maddy got to bring home Dave the Duck – she was SO proud walking out of nursery with him in his little bag and has spent all afternoon making up stories round the house for him. Better give him a good weekend i think. She had me in stitches this morning because she and Fran were playing Sparky Krew Club – Fran was the child and Moo was the Teamstar, with microphone, leading all the activities. I was so pleased with her, its almost unheard of for her to lead a game like that. Admittedly it was all “exact stuff” from last week, but its still a nice change to see her being leading lady, and equally i was really pleased with Fran who seemed to be deliberately allowing Moo to have the chance. Anyway, they all played really nicely all morning, which gave me the chance to finish all the washing/tidying etc i wanted to do.
Dunno if everyone else is getting the weather we are but i’m extremely glad i was not in a tent last night!!!!!
Condensed anything “sit-downish” into an extremely short time with Fran today – she did 10 pages of a workbook (i had to take it away in the end before i lost the will to live!)
and then i read her a Hawaiian and a Chinese creation story before finishing off with Adam and Eve, which she illustrated quite nicely. I was most amused by her version of Adam hiding behind a tree! lol!
While lying in bed this morning i was thinking that Ammi had not wheezed, itched or thrown a wobbly for a week now. By lunch time she was tearing at her arms, had had her inhaler twice and had thrown a complete tantrum because i wouldn’t give her a packet of crisps that she hates. *Rolls eyes*
Had a good chat with my midwife today about delivering this baby if i don’t opt for a section. Am concluding from some reading i am doing that i must have quite a tipped pelvis and i want to think about how i can labour without risking me or baby and how i can avoid being immobilised even if i do agree to monitoring bands. She was quite helpful really which was nice.
News from my sister is a bit more concerning as she has now been told not to expect her pregnancy to go full term and gets the impression that baby is likely to be several weeks early at best. Lots of thoughts/prayers etc for her would be appreciated. I feel pretty yukky about it as everything so far is going very smoothly here and i feel a bit guilty that she has to go through so much worry with her first really. I’m seeing her tomorrow so i’m going to suggest she makes up some birthplan type things for sections/prem babies and so on, so she can prepare herself a bit.
