I had a checkup Tuesday. There was no one available to watch the little kids for me so I had to bring them. I brought them last time and it was miserable, no matter what toys, coloring books, games, books, or treats I bring- they’re SO loud and needy. I decided to be a bit crazy and take Brooklyn out of school to help. I told her that if she managed to keep them preoccupied during the appointment I’d take her out for lunch.
She would’ve watched them anyway, happily, but having a happy meal after was icing on the cake.
I bought a couple things at the dollar store for the kids in hopes that the image of mommy on the exam table wouldn’t cause the usual reaction, which is- NEED TO BE HELD BY MOMMY ON THE EXAM TABLE!! lol
The appointment went well! The kids were noisy, but happy noisy, and I was majorly distracted by them but they didn’t distract the doctor and didn’t make loud noises. Everyone commented on how good they were.
I have an appointment for an ultrasound this afternoon. Allan is THANKFULLY staying home from work to watch the little two for that! I’m SO freaking glad. I can’t concentrate at all if my kids are in the room with me. I really want to watch the baby on the screen in peace and quiet! lol
This morning (it’s Thursday now), Ember threw up. She hasn’t since so I’m wondering if it was the milk she had. It expires today but smells fine. Allan says his stomach feels weird and he’s the only other person that had some, so hopefully it was just “off” milk and since she threw it right up the rest of the day will be fine.
She’s been crying ever since she threw up. She begs for breastmilk and freaks out when I say no. I try to explain why, but she’s two. She couldn’t care less if she throws up right after. She wants mommy milk and she wants it now.
So, three more hours of crying to listen to and then I’m off to a peaceful ultrasound. lol
