I had a dentist appointment this morning. I love the dentist. I get to go by myself, sit in a chair with my eyes closed without getting jumped on, breath in the nitrous, and laugh to MTV playing on the ceiling. So what if I have a drill in my mouth and my jaw is going to hurt after.
I've started back with the mothers helpers this week also. I have 2-3 days a week for 1-2 hours each. Anna has even gotten into it. It has given me a much needed break in the afternoons.
Aidan is pretty much potty trained, except that he is holding his poop. Poop got on his shirt one day and it has totally traumatized him. He says that poop is "yucky gross" and won't go. He'll hold it for 3 days, at which point I've been giving him a liquid glycerin suppository to encourage him to go. I hate this and I cant wait for it to be over. We're doing books, DVDs, sitting together on the potty(s), and then he walks around with on his tip-toes saying his bum hurts because he's getting the urge to go. It sucks!
Anna is walking and getting into everything! She keeps us on our toes and is the cutest thing ever! Sleeping has been a little rough, since her body gets the urge to stand up at every slighty awake moment. She rolls onto her tummy in her sleep and stands up, which then really wakes her up, and she starts to cry. It is cute and sad at the same time. At least it doesnt happen when she's in bed with me. I have been starting the night apart though, and that isn't lasting very long right now. At least Aidan is doing good at night, and Adam has been giving me an extra 15-60 min every morning to lay in bed by myself and unkink from pretzeling around Anna all night. Sleep is sleep though.
Family is coming to town for Christmas and I am so excited. Not only is Christmas right around the corner but I have another dentist appointment in two weeks :) LOL
