We went shopping yesterday with my mom up at the outlets. Fun fun! My mom has this idea in her head that whenever I'm overdue we need to go to Lancaster and haul heavy stuff around. Fortunately, unlike when I was due with Keith, there are no pumpkins in Lancaster at the moment. So instead we shopped. With the boys. That was a bit of an ordeal in itself however. Keith got some school clothes, and Henry got a new pair of shoes. We tried them on in the store and Henry flipped out about them until we bought them and put them on him. So now he's been showing everyone his new red shoes. Even complete strangers. On our way home we stopped by Wendy's to tide the boys over until dinner time, and the fries seemed to put Henry to sleep!

Happy Due Date!

Well. Who would have thought that I'd still be here, pregnant. Well, actually, I figure I had a 50/50 chance seeing as Keith was late and Henry was early, but still. There should be a rule about kids coming before their due date - if one is going to do it, the rest need to follow suite. None of this 42 weeks, 39 weeks, 40 weeks and counting crap. And since only 5% of women have their babies ON their actual due dates, I'm not going to hold my breath that this one is going to be arriving today. So maybe I'll come up with a project today. Err, read that as maybe I'll come up with a project for EDWARD to do and I'll supervise. That sounds good to me! A few weeks ago we painted my room and Henry's room, and the other day we had the bathroom worked on (the sink was shot).... unfortunately I'm running out of rooms to paint. At least, rooms that I'm motivated to paint. Or we could always clean - with a husband and two boys you KNOW my house is never showroom perfect (you can stop laughing now, mom). Or we could just go walk around the mall. Again. Or just watch videos on YouTube...

Did you know?

Did you know that if you over pay child support, at least in the great county of Chester, PA, they send you a refund? Never thought I'd see THIS day!

Thoughts from a five year old

Keith is really exciting about seeing this baby be born. He still won't let us forget that he "didn't get to see Henry come out" (because he was with my parents eating SUSHI - not a bad alternative!), and he is definitely seeing this one come out. He has turned down a trip to Wyoming with my parents, a birthday party invitation, and multiple play dates because "my mom is having a baby and I am going to be there." Dedicated, huh? So I was having some contractions the other day that wouldn't go away, so I figured while this probably WASN'T going to end up with a baby (I was right!), I should make sure every thing is sorted out in case it did. I asked Keith "if the baby comes tonight, do you want to be here or would you rather go to grandma's house?" He thought about it, and decided to stay. Why? Not just to see the baby come out, but "mom, I can't wait to see if it comes head first or feet first!" BITE YOUR TONGUE CHILD!!!!!!

Henry likes it!

Henry had cereal for dinner tonight, because he wasn't feeling the spicy chicken Ed made. Henry's not a fan of spicy food, unlike his brother. But he was definitely a fan of the cheerios! He insisted on feeding himself, and then decided to drink the milk like his big brother does. In hopes of averting a huge mess, Ed gave him a straw...

Hey! I'm cool!

Check it out! I've made it in life!

Seven Cool Careers You've Never Heard Of

It's July!

I can officially say that I am due this month now! Granted, not until the END of the month, but who's being particular? I had my homevisit with the midwives yesterday and it was pretty uneventful. Good bp, good sounding baby... head down baby, which is even better. So now we wait until the baby decides it wants to make its appearance. I just have to put away some baby clothes and diapers and vacuum and we'll be good to go! What am I going to do with THREE kids?!?
