If anyone has
I hope everyone had a good Mother's Day. My weekend started early on Friday. My husband and I went out to dinner at St. Elmo's steakhouse one of the premiere steakhouses in Indianapolis. We had a $100.00 gift card from his boss f rom Christmas and let me tell you that doesn't go very far there. We still ended up paying around $50.00. We originally had an event to go to on Fri and had the sitter lined up but then the event got rescheduled but since we had the sitter we decided to go out anyway.
Saturday, one of our friends from Texas came over. She ran in the Mini marathon which is joined with all the 500 festival events during the month of May in Indianapolis leading up to the Indianapolis 500 Memorial Day weekend. So, she came over for dinner and got to meet David. Anyway, she was asking us if we were going to have any more kids and my DH we were. So I was happy. He didn't tell her how far but he said he wanted them a few yrs apart so I am still hoping next summer he will agree. I am pretty sure he will. But at least he is finally on board with having two for good so that is a huge step. And to tell someone else he has to be serious.
Yesterday, we went out to lunch (it was lunch after we had to wait 50 min for a table) after chuch. We went to Scotty's Lakehouse which has awesome burgers. Then my husband made ribs for dinner and we had left over mashed potatoes from Friday night with it and vegetables. David made me a card that had a cut out of his hands and feet at the sitter on Friday.
I hope you all had a great day and hope to hear all about your Mother's Days.

I'm going to attempt to do personals for the people I didn't get in my one-off responses...
Ella – Put me down for the low libido group, LOL! It has
gotten better, but it’s certainly not what it used to be. Lingerie seems to
help though. ;-)
Kelly – I just saw your new siggy (been reading from my
phone so couldn’t see it until I logged into my laptop) and I can’t believe how
big Elena is now! I’m so sorry to hear things still aren’t great with DH. I
forget, have you tried couples counseling?
– Sounds like you had a weekend filled with great food! Hooray for DH still
being on board with TTC #2. I agree that is a big step if he is telling
other people about it.
Sarah – Sorry to hear about Sully’s possible dairy issues.
Is it at all possible that you have an oversupply? The reason I ask is that
there was a mom who just posted to my LLL group today about the same issue and
someone suggested that it may be oversupply and not dairy. I love hearing the stories about Desmond and Eloise.
You’re lucky you have so many family members to help you out. Just curious,
what things in particular are harder about going from 2 to 3 than 1 to 2? Or is
it just the whole ‘we’re outnumbered now’ thing? :-D
AFM – Last week was my first week home FT with Selin and it
wasn’t easy. She was going on a 2-week cold and was being super crabby and
clingy so I took her to the ped and sure enough, she had a slight ear infection
in one ear. So we’re on antibiotics again. (By the way, has anyone ever tried
putting breast milk in babies’ ear for infections? I always think about it
after I’ve refilled her Rx.) She was only napping once/day, if I was lucky, and
that was only if I held her so needless to say, I did not get much accomplished
last week. This week has been totally different. She slept 11-12 hours straight
through the night over the weekend and took really good naps. Today she took
two naps as well so I was a happy mommy. It’s weird because when she was going
to the sitter, she was not tired for her morning nap but she'd be too tired for the
afternoon nap so she ends up only getting one. But when she’s home with me, I
can usually get her to take two. Oh well. As long as it’s working I guess I
shouldn’t mess with it, right?
In job-related news, I did email my boss last week about the
status of the FT position and he said he had to talk to the VP and would get
back to me. Still no word yet, but I’m going to give him another week and then
bug him again. I’d really like to know before we leave for Turkey in two
weeks, if nothing else. Then today, I got an email from a school district close
to my home to come in for a ‘screening interview’ this coming Friday. It’s a
really competitive district so I was shocked I even got chosen for a screening. I’ll be meeting
with two principals from two different schools and from what I’ve been told, I’m
not really supposed to ask many questions or bring any documents. They just
drill us with a bunch of questions for like 30 minutes straight. Should be
My Mother’s Day was pretty low-key. My parents were up our
way on Friday so I saw my mom then. DH took Selin to his mom’s briefly on
Sunday while I ventured out to find a swimsuit. Two stores later, I finally
found one and at 50% off so I was happy. I was depressed that I had to get a size bigger than my current suit though. Darn post-baby body! When I came home, DH had bought me
tulips and we had a nice barbecued dinner and went for a walk after dinner.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
Sorry for the blank post earlier. My phone decided to post before I was ready. LOL
Mari - How was your nonna's surgery? Hope she's recovering well!
Kate - Your thoughts on DTD are not stupid at all! We waited about 3 months PP before DTD as well and I was so scared it was going to hurt, which it did, but it wasn't terrible. I'm on the minipill as well, but we don't use condoms, only withdrawal as backup, and since we won't have maternity coverage until I find a job, I do worry whenever DH doesn't pull out in time. If it wasn't for the whole insurance thing, I wouldn't be worried about an oops at all. Btw, when do you think you'll TTC #3? :-)
Reading but no time for personals--welll okay I just don't feel like it.
