A little late...sorry, I haven't been feeling the best around here.
I just started throwing up...I didn't do that with either of my last two pregnancies. So, I guess every pregnancy truly is unique. The good news is, I don't feel sick at ALL in the morning or throughout my day (as long as I am continuously eating...I am snacking every two hours, it is ridiculous) until about 4 p.m. as I am trying to get dinner ready. Then right around dinner, I throw up and feel much better. At least their is some relief and I don't feel nauseous until bed time like I did before throwing up...I would feel sick all evening...so, for this I am thankful.
I'm also thankful for my sweet Charlie who has cooked more than half the dinners since I started feeling so nauseous. He is an expert at breakfasts for dinner, grilled cheese sandwiches and grilling.
Anyway, I know you didn't come to read about me puking...so...on to the Friday Funnies:
Before Asher went to bed, I was eating some Coffee Punch that was leftover from Ashley's wedding shower. (It's like the next best thing to having Blue Bell in your freezer and I don't even like coffee! I'll share the recipe below.)
And an hour and a half later, Asher was still awake, so Charlie went to go talk to him:
A: Daddy, I want to tell you a story.
D: You can tell me a short story, because you really need to be asleep.
A: OK... Once upon a time, Mommy made some coffee punch and saved some for me.
Daddy takes McKlayne potty outside at the park:
(After tee-teeing while Daddy was holding her in a squatting position, legs out)
M: Daddy, I want to do it again.
We were standing in line at the store a couple days ago and a beautiful young Asian teen with long hair piled up on top of her head was behind us in line talking to her friend.
McKlayne pointed behind me and said: Look, Mommy! There's Ni-Hao-Kai-lan! I see Ni-Hao-Kai-Lan!
(My kids don't even watch that show but I think they must see commercials for it while watching Wonder Pets?)
Coffee Punch Recipe:
(Marylou gave me this recipe several years ago after she made it for my wedding shower. Now, I hardly throw a shower without making this.)
