Take 379

7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
I'm 39 weeks and 3 days pregnant. Our in utero champ has been estimated at 8 pounds with my last ultrasound this morning... But alas, that measurement is still IN utero... so I didn't get out of another 7 quick takes... Shucks! hah.

It's a funny thing being full term. You wait, you try to keep busy... and everything starts to feel like a "possible last". I have committed to not missing my daily naps and eating food that I love with every meal I can still prepare myself. I'm sitting down for lunch right now eating pasta carbonara... Yes, please, bacon.

Maria came for a visit! I couldn't have paid Hamburg to show off a better side what with all that sunshine and mild 40s weather... It was a huge treat to have her here and learn about her work in Uganda

I got a gift of Tony's chocolate this week... it was yummy! Tiny bits of pretzel inside... but I had such a laugh imagining what it would be like to try to have any children share this chocolate bar without fights of unfairness breaking out...
I mean... no two pieces are equal! Saints preserve us.

I've been a little slow with reading at the start of 2020... I'm currently chipping away at The Cricket in Times Square with the kids at night, but my sister (thank you!) just sent birthday presents of books... one of which is Sorry I'm late I didn't want to come. As a closet-introvert who much prefers books and wine for a relaxing/fun evening... I'm excited to read it!

I don't know where you mine your parenting advice from... and certainly it shouldn't be from here... but after several months of applying this to my own situation, I thought I should share: there's a big difference between defiance and childishness. If I ask for everyone to go upstairs... and they all go up pretending to be dogs, barking wildly and crawling on all fours... but they're still going upstairs... well... anyways. You get the idea. This has saved me quite a few bedtime blowups at my kids... so I thought I'd share. LOL.

Feel free to start placing bets on when this baby is coming... you at least know we've cleared the 8 pound mark! Here's hoping we have news to share soon! 

Happy Friday!
