Well poop.

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.

    I love reading your blog. It usually makes me laugh and stop almost running away to the circus.

    I’m dragging Jimmy along with me to The Business of Being Born. He’s just counting down the minutes until he gets to see live births on the big screen. I haven’t told him that’s what it’s about. Maybe I won’t mention it.

    Anyway, you make me feel more normal. When I’m sitting in my house, trying to convince myself to care for my children, feed them, and stop concentrating on how much sitting in my dark cloud of depression sucks, it’s nice to read that I’m not the only one who struggles with the day to day stuff.

    So cute with the thumb-sucking! My ella covers her face with her fingers like that when she is sleepy, and has done since she was Alice’s age.

    *squee*

    I’m sorry you are all sick!

    Aislinn has been on a potty strike since Chase was born, like seriously.
    “Aislinn, would you like to use the potty today?”

    - “NO!! No potty momma! no potty! no panties!!!” UGH!
