I have less than 3 weeks left! Some days I’m really feeling it. Like today. Ana has about four teeth coming it at the same time, three of which are premolars. So, she’s a little crabby.
She absolutely hates having her diaper or clothes changed. And it’s not that she wants to be naked, because it’s just as hard to undress her as it is to dress her. I try to give her things to entertain her but sometimes it doesn’t work and I get desperate because she’s just long enough where she can kick my belly. So I have to try and hold her arms down with my feet, except I’m having issues with leg cramps and the arches in my feet and my calves start cramping when I do this.
Anyway, I’m a little tired. I’m actually thankful for this little business that I’ve started. It’s been a nice escape. It’s Me time. I feel like I’m being productive even though it has nothing to do with taking care of my family.
This past weekend, I went to the hospital to do all the paperwork and get a tour of the birthing rooms. They’re fabulous and I’m really looking forward to my stay there. I can’t stop thinking about it like it’ll be a mini-vaca. People will be bringing me food and drugs and making sure I have everything I need. I won’t have to cook or clean or answer silly questions.
With the other two babies, I couldn’t wait to get out of the hospital, but this time, I’m sending Shane home with the kids and will enjoy every minute alone with Charlotte.
I’m really looking forward to it.
