Somewhat random post today!

Turns out you can only push the pregnant stressed out girl so far.

I'm better today. Yesterday was actually fine working from home. Hulk slept almost the whole day, waking up for only for bottles and more meds. He slept pretty well last night (one wake up, solved by a bottle and more meds). I'm hoping that he is just as good for Aaron today. But this morning he seemed happier and more himself. So crossing fingers it's just the shots and we over the hump.

As I drove away this morning, I realized that this is the first full day that Aaron has spent alone with Hulk. Sure, he's taken him at night when I've gone to hang out with my girlfriends, or to the gym, or whatever - but that is like an hour of playtime, followed up by bedtime. Today may be a whole day of Aaron and Hulk time! I'm interested to see what sort of shape Aaron is when I get home from work.

I gave him benadryl last night as he's been stuffy for the last 3 weeks. It was before his bath, so I got to watch it kick in. The look on his face as he could finally breathe through his nose was pretty funny!

With all the time I've taken for sickness/pregnancy/life in the last few weeks, I've been thinking in the back of my head that my boss must be getting annoyed. But he isn't. He is really understanding, and it isn't like a just work 8 hours a day... so it all evens out in the end. But last night, I had one of those all night dreams that seem totally real where I got laid off - because I was pregnant and missing work so much. I even woke up at one point (to pee and give Hulk the bottle/meds) and I was sitting there figuring out what my severance would be. It was crazy! I joked about it to my boss this morning, and he said he hopes that never happens - and if I'm going, it's because we all are. So that was comforting (of course, I work at a bank, so maybe not all that comforting when you think about it).

You know I've been thinking about telling DH that I'm going off to do something for a whole day and he needs to watch the baby, just so he knows how stressful it can be.

Make sure you let us know how Hulk and Aaron did today. My hubby was always good with the children. Although when he had Zilla, he had a built in helper that was Nae. So, that's really unfair, now that I think about it! I'm glad your boss is being so amazing! Have a GREAT day!

That is wonderful that your boss is so understanding. I also enjoy a wonderful boss and that makes a huge difference. I'm guessing that your boss is very willing to go easy on you because I suspect that you are a rather dedicated employee :)

I'm glad Hulk seems to be feeling better and that Aaron will see what it is like to spend all day with a baby. It's harder than people realize.

So glad that Hulk is feeling better.

I also feel like I'm the one always having to take off work.
