I’m at my wits end today. Michael woke up in a horrible mood (and I mean TERRIBLE screaming fits and just “NO” to everything) and I’m just exhausted.
We still have presents to get to and cake, I’m hoping that by the time we get to my stepdad’s house he’ll have calmed down a bit (or maybe a change of familiar scenery will help? please?)

Theres nothing bad about getting an epidural. I myself didnt get one. I had a pretty easy labor. Every labor is different and every1 has a different pain tollerance. As long as u have a healthy baby it shouldnt matter the type of birthing u choose
exactly! I just feel like people talk about it so often and it’s usually with a sense of pride of “oh well *I* didn’t get one, YOU did? But why?” and then more than half the people who get one their first time say they felt like they missed out on something and I just don’t get what there is to “miss out on” I guess?

I feel like the only mom who didn’t regret getting an epidural
and the only mom who got an epidural twice and didn’t feel like I was missing out on something with either birth. Even now I would get another epidural if I got pregnant again. It wouldn’t even be a question, I don’t see what’s so bad about them.

call me old fashioned but 4 year olds should not own iPhones
call me old fashioned but 12 year olds should not own iPhones
Call me old fashioned, but you should not have a cell phone if you cannot pay for it yourself.
Call me old fashioned but what’s a cell phone?

Michael totally talks now. Like seriously can say things like “I want a cup of water” or “can I bring my shoes?” and UNDERSTAND what he’s saying. He also can listen to basic directions (can you please put the pillows on the bed/do you want to go get a blanket please/please hand my phone to me) and can give basic directions. He keeps Cailen out of things he shouldn’t be in and takes dangerous things away from him and throws them over the baby gate!
Cailen is a sweetie pie. He can kind of talk, he says things like “orange” or “cuppawadde” (cup of water), basic words like that (usually parroting whatever Michael is saying). So far both of the boys love the neighbor girls, and literally try to break into their backyard every time they walk outside.
We have the walls painted, and next weekend that the boys are at their dad’s house we’re going to be putting in the new flooring (hellooooo stainmaster carpet) and over the next few warm months we’ll be slowly replacing all of the windows in the house. We’ve already got one down, and honestly the weather right now is perfect so not having super awesome insulated double paned window’s isn’t the biggest deal in the world.
