After several days of Zeva not moving like she normally has, she decided to make up for it yesterday. Yesterday she was kicking and pushing and pinching so much, I honestly didn’t know what to think. 🙂 My husband calls her “E.T” because he says she reminds him of a little alien the way she kicks and pushes and how big she’s made my stomache. (When we had our son, I barely showed, and he was perfectly happy inside me. Zeva on the other hand, has been trying to figure a way out for a long time now, and there are times when you see my stomache just expand out like she’s going to pop out of it, like an alien does in the movies.) Today she’s a bit more comfortable, but of course, she moved almost non stop until late last night, so she has to be tired.
My youngest son gets to spend the day with his granddaddy going around picking up products that we sell. He thinks he’s “Mr.Big” because he gets to go to work. He told me as he was giving me my hugs and kisses that he was off to work and that he would see me when he got off. I told him as his reward for working so hard, that if granddaddy would let him, he could spend the night there tonight (they get the kids one night a week, and lately they haven’t wanted both of them at the same time because the boys have been handfulls lately.) So, I figured tonight would be a good night for them to get him. He’s my “Mr.Drama King” and keeps life very entertaining, so the fact that he’s already gone, it feels weird not having him here. However, the house is completely quiet for when Jimmy and I do his lessons.
Jimmy is working on his spelling and writing. He can write beautiful when he wants to, but like any normal human being, he wants to slack off some today, so I’m being cruel and making him redo his work. I won’t except anything less than what I know he can give me. Then after he’s given me that level of work for a period of time, I push him to do even better. I actually had one teacher accuse me of doing his work for him when he was in the first grade, and I laughed. I told her you don’t MAKE him do his best work like I do. (Which in her defense, teachers don’t have time to really MAKE every student do the best they can!!) I want my kids to grow up and learn to put their best foot forward even when times are hard, and that it doesn’t pay to be lazy because you end up doing twice as much work.
I learned that lesson!! I let my personal life interfer to much with my work life on a job that I loved with a passion. Now, I’m still playing the debating game about going and trying to get back on with them after I heal from my surgery and Zeva’s born. However, now that things are starting to pick back up some with the business, Del is debating with me more about whether or not I should go back to work. Everyone is use to me being home, and he KNOWS I WANT to be home with Zeva for a year at least. I don’t want to miss another baby of mine’s baby stage. I wasn’t there for any of my kids during their baby year. I don’t think I misssed out on a whole lot, but in the same token, Zeva is going to be my last one. Unless there is a miracle conception after my tubes are tied and the combination of birth control just to keep me regulated. That would be some mighty amazing stuff in my book!! However, with God all things are possible, and if he wants you to do something it will happen.
I’m on the hunt for other interesting blogs. What I consider interesting is reading about other’s lives, (Yes, I like to be nosey, and to me that is a case where I feel like I get to be nosey with your consent.), I do enjoy reading some deal websites, but I’ve learned that most of them have the same information on them, and a great humor blog would be awesome.
I’d also like to know some things that you may be interested in hearing about more. I haven’t really wrote a heart to heart blog in a while, but the one waying on my mind is border line talking about my ex’s life in more detail that I think he may/may not want me sharing with the world. (Even though it’s ALL good for him, but still..)
