The End of an Era

Yep, my last weekend before heading back to full time work. I can hardly believe it. These past two weeks have gone by too quickly and have been way too full of hustle and bustle with the holidays. We've hardly had time to breathe, and now all of the sudden it's Saturday night. One more day until the craziness begins again.

Addie is in her room screaming because she wants her pacifier, yes it will be two weeks on Monday and she is still crying for it and asking me about it. I don't know what to do and I feel awful. Who says that pacifiers aren't acceptable for 7 year olds anyway? I think she'd probably wean herself off before then, eh? I think the kids are going to have a rough week ahead of them with all of these changes, but hopefully they will be able to adjust quickly. I'm just a bundle of emotions and worries.

Baby #3 News:

I failed my 1 hour sugar test

I now have to take the 3 hour sugar test at the health department this Wednesday morning

I have felt some little baby rolling movements

Now I worry when I don't feel them for a couple of days

I am oficially unable to wear any non-maternity pants except one oversized pair of slacks from 30lbs ago

I feel fat, not pregnant, just inflated and fat

My SI joint pain has returned, which I think is in large part due to too much jumping while playing the Kinnect

We have our 18 week ultrasound scheduled for January 19th! We hope to find out the sex of the baby then...and no, neither of us really have a preference

I will have health insurance starting in February, so if anything should go wrong I will have a back up!

Side note: When the baby comes and I head back to work, we have discovered that with fulltime daycare for Addie and the new baby and the afterschool program for Freddie...we will be paying $215 a week for childcare. That's about $10,000 a year, people! Too bad they can't also get a college education while they're at it!

Hmm, not much else going on except for our amazing new minivan! We found a 2006 Toyota Sienna, white, 82k miles, great condition, only two previous owners, all service done at Landers and completely well kept/serviced, (no bells and whistles, dvds, power doors, etc., but a keyless entry is a step up for us folks!), for only $12k WOOOT! We hate to have a car payment at all, but this is much more in our price range than we ever thought and we were able to get the make and model we hoped for. We've driven it all around town and back since Wednesday and still have half a tank of gas too! I feel a bit like a grown up in that thing! I don't know when I'll get back into the blogging swing after this big transition but hopefully I'll find a good rythm that will include updating the masses! ;)

I can't believe you're starting work. The time has really flown on my side as well. $215 is a steal for 3 kids...yes it is insane, but if I had 2 kids, I'd be paying $220 for both. My friend is paying over $300 for her two girls!! She's considering hiring an in home nanny because of the cost.

I hope the week goes well for you. Hate I'm going to miss Addie's party but I'll be back in time to wish her a Happy Birthday! Can't believe our kiddos are about to turn 2!!

When you get time, post a picture of your new ride. How totally awesome that you guys got such a great deal!
