Halloween

I am a Halloween Grinch.

I don't like getting dressed up - most times.

I don't like the cold weather and I don't like going in and out of the vehicle wrangling a 2 year old.

I don't like the kids that put NO EFFORT into their costumes (the older kids).

I don't like the greedy monsters my kids turn into after like ... one house. Although William was really more interested in bringing home everyone's dogs and he pretty much wanted to just stay at EVERY house we went to.

Luckily ....

I like when my kids are polite.

I like when the older people who hardly get kids see our kids and are SO HAPPY to see kids that it's just a great thing.

I like how excited they get once they get the hang of it.

I was impressed by William's intense determination as introducing himself as Tony Stark everywhere we went.

I like our neighbors.

I like our neighbors popcorn balls and candy apples.

We only go to farms and a few specific in town places so we know the people we get all the candy from and they know the kids.

ALL that being said - CAULIFLOWER I don't like Halloween. Bah!

I didn't even take pictues. Okay ... that was bad. Sigh.

But ... now I can focus on Christmas and Remembrance Day. I like Remembrance Day WAY more than I like Halloween. Sad isn't it?

Maybe it'll grow on me or something ....

3 months - or whatever

I was going to wait until I have a picture - but let's be honest, by the time I remember where I put my camera I'll be about 8 months pregnant. I'll just add the picture whenever I get around to taking it.

Baby number 3 is due in May 2013. I know the jokes and they are funny, you don't have to stop making them, but here is the truth of the matter - there have been enough losses for me to believe that I am just meant to have babies in the month of May. Conception at any other time has resulted in a loss - always around that 3 month mark - so I may not always laugh at your joke. It really can't be helped.

May is not convenient in any way and if I had to choose I wouldn't choose May - Just sayin'. I will be leaving my job with only 2-3 months left in the school year and coming back with only 2-3 months in the year, which is TOUGH for the person taking my place and for me taking BACK my place. Ick. PLUS I won't have enough hours to get EI for the summer - which ... sucks.

But frankly, since my subconscious is all 'Hey-May-babies-are-the-freaking-best' then I'll just go with it. This will allow us to get all the birthdays done at once too, but I guess I can kiss my birthday and Mother's Day goodbye ;) Corey might complain he doesn't get to share his birthday but I'm thinking - DUDE you don't have to share your birthday!!! You never share ANYTHING lol.

We're all excited of course, Amélie wants twins and is upset I'm having a baby since she said when she grows up she's going to have babies FOR me. (eyebrow raise - yeah no.) William doesn't care. Unless it's about Iron Man, Tony Stark or Captain America I can just go-away.

I think it must be a girl too because - HELLO nausea. It was hard to hide it too!! I don't know if anyone really noticed, except for when I got the flu. I really had the flu and it kicked my ass. I forgot what getting the flu was all about I hadn't gotten it in forever. FYI It's not that fun.

It seems to be easing up and I'm already 'showing'. I thought I was imagining it actually but no ... I'm not. At least my boobs are growing too. I'm just waiting for that '2nd trimester energy' to kick in. Anytime now would be great. I also think I'm getting varicose veins. I'm not a super pleasant pregnant woman - must be a girl.
