Today is a good day! My husband has Thursday and Friday off, so we get another 4 day weekend! Tomorrow he wants to do his Christmas shopping. Friday we are going to my parents for the night. Their church is having a real cool family Christmas event and we want to take the girls.
Yesterday was awesome! It was one of those days where the girls were just angels! I really do not remember ever having to fuss at them or ask them twice to do anything. They were great from the time they woke up until they went to bed! Today has started the same way and I hope it continues!
My mom gave me the book "Shade of Blue" by Karen Kingsbury. It was one of the best and most powerful fiction books I have ever read. It speaks a message to everyone from teens on up! If you are looking for a Christmas gift for someone and they like to read, I highly recommend this book.
Meanwhile, we read this book, "The Story of Me", with the girls. We were not sure if we wanted to or not, but it a great VERY age appropriate introduction to sex education. Even my husband was cool with it! We read it with the girls and they seemed to enjoy it. It helps open up the conversation with them. We KNOW they will be asking questions about the baby. Especially if the baby is a boy! The book does a nice job of explaining, without going into to much detail. It is an easy read. If you have wondered about doing this with your young children, it is a great resource.
We are 8 days away from my next ultrasound and I cannot wait to see this baby again! It is so comforting to see that heart beating! I am hoping this time they try and listen for it too so the girls can hear (and us of course!).
I better get off. We are off for our weekly therapy appointment!
