Creative Solutions

My new thing is laying on my ironing board with my toes about two feet higher than my head. If the Trendelenburg position doesn’t flip this baby, at least I tried.

Yesterday, Ben took a short nap and Allison said, “I think I’m going to take the kids and run errands.” I told her there are so many things I’d rather do than run errands with the boys, especially if the weather was gorgeous, but she’s more of a shopping than park type, so I told her to go for it. She stopped at the grocery store, Rite Aid, and Costco. Since the temperature only hit about 70, I asked her to make a pot of chili for dinner. With the doctors imploring me to eat more protein, I couldn’t think of a better way to do it than a bowl of meat and beans.

Today was a yucky, gloomy day and more than one of us lounged in our pj’s all day. I actually was going to meet a preschool director for a few minutes, which I didn’t think would hurt my bed rest. I showered and got dressed, then got in the car. It wouldn’t start. One of the kids messed with the interior lights. I went inside and got back in my pj’s. Oh, well. I called the preschool director and she said no worries.

I’m not sure if I’m going to enroll Ben, anyway. He has such separation anxiety issues, I don’t know if preschool would help or make things worse. Plus, our church has a co-op preschool two days a week at the same time as this preschool. Maybe I’ll do the co-op and use the money I would save to hire a cleaning lady.

  1. I love that you are taking matters into your own hands! Hopefully Mr. Man will flip so no C-section will be necessary. I can't believe Ben is old enough for preschool. Honestly, where does time go!?
