Killing Time

I have an hour before my meeting. I only brought a certain amount of work with me because I wanted to remember the stuff I'm bringing to deal with at MILs and because I only had about 2 nonmeeting hours of work today. But now I'm done with what I brought and have time left to waste.

I did go to Wal-mart to pick up a couple of things. One is pre-measured servings of Benadryl. My son is so allergic to bugs! He swells up like crazy. So I'm putting some premeasures in my purse and giving my mom some, just in case. The other is a Magna Doodle, for the drive tonight. I hope he likes it. He's been writing i and o a lot, and we are working on m and a and s.

I wonder what the four hours in the car tonight will do to my ankles? And I wonder what sleeping in a strange bed, when I already cannot sleep because of aches and pains and MASSIVE stomach will do to my disposition? Plus, food in Leesville SUCKS, and I'm into eating right now, but having a bit of an overstuffed pregnancy feelings, meaning I have to eat often, but not too much at a time. MIL eat two huge meals a day, and for some unknown reason, my constant eating seems to disturb her. I should be fun. :(

My BIL ONCE AGAIN expressed his concern that about me not going into another room when breastfeeding. Seriously, I am squeamish enough about breastfeeding without having him on my case. I plan to be very discreet. No one will be seeing my girl stuff (a bit for their sake, because I think being discrete is courteous, but mostly for my sake, as I am quite prudish)...except that I might not be as discrete around him, 'cause he is seriously p'ing me off! (Stac Cole, if you are wondering, it's not Tim. But you already knew that, right? ;))

oh yeah! It's so fun to get him stirred up sometimes...heehee.

Will your sister be breastfeeding?

She plans to for about 6 weeks. But as unsupportive as her husband seems to be, I cannot imagine she will be succesful.

Ander would be perfectly content with bottle-feeding (as he loves to feed babies and is not willing to lactate...LOL), but is totally supportive of trying to breastfeed.

Stac Cole said...

Ummmm LMAO Ander, or Alan?

Bryan blows up when bugs bite him too. I practically paint him with bug spray and he still was eaten up last night, so now we are coating him in Benedryl anti-itch spray.

Crap, I meant Alan. ;)

I can't even imagine having to deal with that. It's your choice and no one else's! Tell him to buy you a lovely nursing cover from Bebe au Lait if he's that concerned about it. They really are nice nursing covers (I have one for nursing in public here and it's great) and it would make a great gift from someone who feels he has the right to let you know that HE won't be comfortable with you nursing.
