Friends are wonderful.
With the bleeding that came up the last few days Eric and I have both been nervous about my doing too much too quickly. And since I didn''t do very much on Tuesday at all, we really wondered what was too much. Even Wednesday seemed to have been too much and so we were just all around confused.
On Wednesday evening, I got a call from one of the ladies who''d been over last week and who had planned to come this week too. She still wanted to come over and play with the kids. The kids simply adore her too. Even Arthur is quite taken with her. We were so grateful for her offer.
She came over, and I took it easy yesterday. I really did pretty much nothing all morning while the kids went for walks, played at the play ground, did dishes (Katelyn thinks this is a very fun game) and overall had fun. She wore them out so much that they barely at lunch before fallng asleep (in their room again!).
Then Eric took the kids to work in the evening for "Take you child to work day". So even though I did more then I''ve done in past days, I did much less then Wednesday.
This morning there was no spotting!
Yesterday, I got a call from the lady who was orinally scheduled for today. She still wanted to come too. Wow, what a blessing!
The kids are outside playing with her and just loving it.
I''ll be doing the afternoon myself again but it should be naps.
The kids are a little out of sorts though. They appear to have caught some bug. Both threw up last night. (Today''s person knew that before she came and she still wanted to come.... did I say yet that she''s a blessing?) Today they''re just generally grumpy and easily frustrated. Nothing is quite how they want it. Except the idea of going outside... Conner was all over that idea.
We decided just a few minutes ago that if Katelyn has a CEO personality, Conner is very goal oriented. He needs a reason or purpose. When we mentioned that he needed clothes on to go outside, he instantly went from fussing because we were trying to dress him to frustrated because we weren''t getting them on quickly enough for him. He just needed a goal.
I should mention that Arthur is doing well with all this even though I can''t take him on walks and stuff. I told my neighbor that he was allowed to come over and play with Arthur any time he wanted. Since this little boy doesn''t have a dog, it works out perfectly. He came over yesterday, knocked on the door and very politely asked, "Can Arthur come out and play?" Arthur was very happy to oblige and so the two of them played catch for a while.
Arthur also likes to watch the kids play on the swingset. I think he''s going to really enjoy this summer and he''ll be glad to have Katelyn be old enough to really play outside this winter.
Eric is holding up to the stress very well. It''s wearing him out though just through exhaustion. I think his body was very relieved to have the SCH not show up on ultrasound. He came home that evening and slept... it was a well needed nap though and I was glad I could take care of feeding the kids dinner. We ate Chili that a friend had brought over fully prepared so I didn''t need to do anything other then put it into bowls. Then I woke Eric up and had him put the kids to bed.
