Round and round
Today is baby girl’s official due date. Despite all of the pre-labor symptoms going down for the last week, she is content to stay in a little longer.
Last week I progressively felt worse. I thought this might be a sign that labor was coming, but…. nope.
Saturday I woke up and said to myself… I better stock up. I ordered a huge load of groceries for the boys. Fruits, veggies, meats, snacks… all sorts of good things. I thought…”This will last a while and give them lots to eat when I go into the hospital.”
Welp… baby girl is taking her time, but my boys on the other hand are in full speed “EAT” mode. I think they may secretly have a plan to eat $250 worth of groceries before I go into labor.
They have already crushed a huge amount of what I bought. An entire container of blueberries…almost gone. Raspberries….gone. Bananas…gone. 2 packages of chicken skewers….gone. Pirate booty…gone.
I don’t mind that they eat it, I just can’t believe they are eating it so fast. It seems to be the same way with cleaning right now. I clean something, get everything put away, feel like….yup it’s ready. And then I turn around and it’s a huge mess again.
That’s pretty standard life I think, but the anticipation of… “better get this done because I’m going into labor soon” is starting to feel like a crazy ferris wheel. It seems possible I may never go into labor.
So that is my update for now. Belly growing, groceries diminishing and house in perpetual puppy- kid – life chaos.
P.S. Henry just told me there is nothing to eat in the house and he is going to starve every day until lunch.
