What, two videos in a row?! Well, this one is a two-for-one deal, because not only do you get to see Alice sucking her thumb (*melty love*) but you also get to hear Ella in the background crying because it has been a hard poop week ya’ll. Literally. Fiber gummy bears, popcorn, prune cake, prune juice, Miralax, mineral oil, a thousand baths, a million hours of sitting on the potty, and what have we got? One lousy turd, and it hurt enough that getting any more out of there is going to be a fight. Locked up like Fort Knox. A crying, wailing Fort Knox, who is also sick (like the rest of us) and running a fever, so any fluid we are getting in her is probably not getting to the poo.It’s been a real fun house, let me tell ya.
Luckily Tom is sick (wait, I’m not a jerk, keep reading) and is at home with us, otherwise I think I would have shipped myself off to Abu Dhabi already. I am paranoid that Alice is going to catch our cold (fever, cough, headache, stuffy head) but hopefully I’m pumping her full of antibodies and she comes through unscathed.
I hope I am better by
Friday Saturday (thanks Angela, I have one more day to get better!), because the only Spokane showing of The Business of Bring Born is that night, and I will be pissed if I have to stay home. There will a bunch of pregnant mamas though, so if I am feeling at all sick I won’t go, but I really, really want to see it as a community, not just me at home with my Netflix. There are not many events in our little conservative town that all of us hippie-birthing mamas can rally around, so I don’t want to miss out on this one.
Alright, I am off to mix mineral oil with ice cream and try to convince Ella that pushing is good. I feel like a poop midwife, or Bobby Brown. Awesome.
