The past week (almost two weeks at this point) has not been the best, both my 7yr old son and I have severe bronchitis, I had a surprise visit from my father (who I’ve not seen since March, he lives 15min away, have to wonder if he showed up due to my previous entry) who was spouting a lot of “well your sister said….” false information about my health, that I had extremely high blood pressure and had stopped vomiting… I have perfectly normal blood pressure and sadly, the hyperemesis is still with me like white on rice. Plus a lot of other crap was told to me. I had my mother tell me to rip up a $40 mother’s day gift check to me (that she told me to not cash until June 3rd). Money I planned on using to take my son to the zoo with since he missed out on his field trip at school due to the bronchitis. Granted I am really stressed about it all.
I am tired of family members attacking me for what I write here.
I am trying to redirect my thoughts towards the baby and just trying to look forward to the summer.
As for baby stuff, with Daniel, I never had a sling, I simply carried him everywhere. I would love any recommendations for slings/types of slings/where to purchase/etc. Same for cloth diapers. Daniel was CD starting around 12 months of age and it was mostly pre-folds and covers. I am looking at these sites (Good Mama,Green Mountain Diapers for pre-folds, Firefly Diapers,Cheeky Diapers for covers, BumGenius) for my future purchases, any reviews/recommendations again would be appreciated.
Oh and any natural/wood child online stores would be great, it drives me nuts how many toys my son has, toys that he never plays with either as he is more interested in video games/computers/playing outside. I would love to paint a portion of his wall with blackboard chalk paint, then he could go buck wild with his creativity.
I am at a loss for baby names right now. I am pondering the following: Julian, Sky, Ash, Cole. I never realized how hard it was to come up with a name. With my oldest I knew years before he was even conceived that he would be a Daniel. This one on the other hand, has been such a surprise that I feel sort of stuck on what to do. I’ve been feeling a lot more movement lately, it’s weird, with my oldest I felt him early on and it was very strong movements, with this baby I have an anterior placenta so not only are the movements softer but not as frequent. Drives me insane.
Anyway, I am hoping we are all recovered by the weekend (and have decent weather!) so we can go to the farmer’s market finally. Even just going to the park again would be nice. I know we are all fed up with being stuck in the house. I am no good with inside rainy day/sick day activities.
