I had an ultrasound this week and found out we’re having our 5th boy! I couldn’t even imagine it being a girl. I guess I’m really used to boys at this point. My oldest is my daughter, which I highly recommend because she is so helpful to me!
I’m expecting the baby around February 1st. My due date is the 22nd, but my babies always come at 37 weeks. My oven runs hot! And boy am I thankful they come sooner rather than later. I’m feeling really impatient for this baby to come. I feel like to could come today and just fit right in 🙂 I guess that comes with having six kids.
In other news, I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I started putting up Tom Sawyer on fifth grade, and then I decided to switch books, so I’m going to take down the assignments I’ve written already. No one should be that far yet (Day 95), so it won’t affect any of you. My daughter (the one who reads anything and everything) today told me that she skips the second half of the book because it gives her “bad thoughts.” She says the first half is funny, but the second half is scary. My mother is a book lover, so I feel a bit of pressure to have my kids read “the classics,” but there is other literature out there. I’ve chosen Little Men instead by Louisa May Alcott–boy antics without the murdering Injun Joe.
