Girl Scout Sabotage!

Why is it that the girl scout cookies I ordered are delivered the same day my Dr. gives me the o.k to start working out. I ordered 3 boxes each of caramel delights and peanut butter patties and 1 box of thin mints. When I ordered these sinful cookies I was nine months pregnant. I have zero will power when they are already in my house.

Mom she's touching me!

We went to the garden center like I promised Loch. Again the baby was pretty good. The other two were like straight out of a movie. She's touching me, he's poking me, he's on my side, she hit me. I think I threaten them half a dozen times that we're going to leave and not get anything. By the time we were checking out the baby was screaming and the other two were still at each other. The cashier sort of got a kick out of it all. I hate when people say "oh you got your hands full" oh ya think! I always thought it was sort of weird when I heard other mother's say that they never go shopping with their kids. I'm starting to become a fan!!

6 week check-up

Well yesterday was interesting. I had my 6 week check up with my surgeon. It was the first time I took all three to the doctors by myself. Just before we left Loch's nose started bleeding again. If you are like me, you don't have any extra time for this sort of thing. We were late!! We still had to wait a bit in the office and in the exam room. At least the Dr. was quick, he gave me the o.k. The baby was great she was sleeping the whole time. It's the other two who have been monsters lately. Claire is screaming and stomping around b/c she wants to be up on the exam table. I told them both no, that made it worse. Oh well they have to learn that you don't always get what you want.

Do something GREEN today!!

My son wants to plant a garden this year. So I told him we could go to the garden center and see what we could find to get things started. My son is really trying to reduce, reuse and recycle. He is watching me like a hawk with water usage and turning things off when you aren't using them. He is very curious about recycling. He keeps asking me what kind of things you can recycle. I'm going to take the time to teach him and answer his questions. I want him to live green and be aware.

Be Thin Again

Let me tell you what my goal is, to be thin again. Its funny, and by funny I mean not funny at all, how you can get used to the size that you are. It happens gradually and you just sort of get used to it. But hear is how you give yourself a wake up call. Have your husband take a picture of you playing with your kids at the beach. That happened to me last summer and it was disgusting. I thought who was that fat person. I don't really have alot of money or time to go to a gym, so I bought some workout videos. I started using them and I could feel and start to see a difference. The energy level alone was worth it, my husband could tell the days that I worked out. But then we sold our house and moved. Two kids and packing and unpacking your whole life sort of takes up all your time. Then about three weeks after moving into the new house I found out I was pregnant with our third. That put a halt to my plans of working out.

But I have decided that no one is going to do it for me. I will never be truly happy if I'm over weight. I have never really been an over weight person. I was always thin and athletic. It is weird to me that there are some people that have only known me like this and they think of me as a overweight person. In my mind I'm not.

I love food so I know taking away the foods I love will not work. I would probably gain more. So the key for me is to exercise, have smaller portions and drink more water and less pop. As soon as I'm healed enough I'm going to start exercising. We will see how it goes.

Three C-Sections

My son was ten days over due. I went to the hospital twice to be induced. It didn't work the first time and then the second time the baby's heart rate dropped and they did an emergency c-section. The hospital and doctor I have don't do v-bacs so I ended up having two more c-sections. While they were in there this last time they also tied my tubes. Recovery of a c-section has been different every time. This time I'm mentally ready to start exercising, run around with my kids and be "normal" again. My body on the other hand has a different idea. It has been 6 weeks and I'm still having pain when I walk to much. My husband has been worried, he even called the doctor. I didn't want to b/c I knew they were just going to tell me to take it easy. But running after two older ones and taking it easy don't exactly work well together.

What a Bloody Mess

This morning I found a bump on the back of Claire's head. I don't know where it came from but she keeps complaining about it. I'm checking email this morning and my son comes up to me with two hands full on blood and it all over his face and running down his chin. I rushed him into the kitchen and put the baby down. At first I didn't know where it was coming from. I realized that he had a bloody nose. I asked him if he was picking his nose he said yes. I told him not a good idea. It took a while to stop it. He managed to get it all over the couch, carpet and his clothes. I used a spray bottle of oxi clean and it came right out. It looks like Claire's sore neck is from sleeping on it the wrong way.

Can't get out

Why is it that I can't seem to get out of the house before lunch time. Then it's lunch time and everybody has to eat the baby eats every two hours and takes at least a half hour to eat. Therefore it seems as though I'm feeding her all the time. Then after lunch is nap time and if you skip that it's always a gamble. I can't wait till the weather is nice enough to open the windows and let the kids run around.
