A Crazy Morning

Tuesday, August 14, 2007

Things started going downhill this morning when Samuel's diaper broke open just after he'd messed it, and then I had a lovely little mess to clean up on our staircase. I had a doctor's appointment this morning, and for some reason, I thought I had plenty of time, but by the time I got us ready & out to the car, it was 10 minutes to 11am, and my appointment was on the other side of town at 11. Despite construction forcing me to go downtown, being stuck behind a bus for part of the way, and seemingly behind every driver in Portland that wanted to go 10mph, then turn right suddenly w/out using a blinker, I made it to the appointment only 10 minutes late. Unfortunately, Samuel pinched his finger, then banged his eye on the exam table during the appointment, which led to uncontrollable screaming for 10 minutes during the appointment, including a full-body throw-down with head buried in hands in the most dramatic way possible. My nerves were pretty frazzled after that, so Samuel and I went over to Hawthorne after the apointment and had bento for lunch, then Starbucks, which made both of us much happier. Now he is napping, the dishes are done, the rice noodles are soaking for dinner, and I'm enjoying some quiet time before Samuel wakes up and Landon gets home from work.

What a day! I can totally imagine. Although, I probably would have given up after the doctor's appointment and skipped the bento :-).

I can't believe November is just around the corner and she will be here! I'm so excited to hear about your home birth experience. I think you're going to love it. What a great memory it will be for you guys.
