Moving on-It's been a rough week of parenting at Osborn abode. Avery's been fine, except when provoked by McKenna. She is still working on self-control and just ignoring her sisters. I think McKenna is just now acting out b/c of the move and transition (something I went through in January and February and most of March) She talks about Wichita a lot, even Abby. She's overly whiney, and reverts to screaming and moaning when things don't go her way. Kevin says she's just a middle child. Maybe I should read a book about that. hmmm. Presley is just testing her boundaries. This week it was trying to climb to the top bunk in her big sisters' room. Lots of time-outs, tears, and "sorry, mommy." And then, we repeat the scenario 5 minutes later. Very frustrating. I'll be so glad to get rid of those bunk beds. They were good for us and served their purpose the last 3 years, but I'm done. Miraculously, the girls have been good in the evenings, so Kevin probably thinks I'm losing my mind and making all of this up. Oh, well.
I read somewhere that I am supposed to be keeping track of the baby's kicks in the morning and evening. I should feel 10 kicks within an hour, both times of day. All I can say is, this kid kicks me 10 times in about 8 minutes when I finally slow down and count. He's all over the place. It feels like there's an alien in my stomach! I'm well aware that there will come a time when I will miss feeling these kicks, but that's hard to comprehend right now.
Tonight, it's movie night at our house. We are watching Princess and the Frog and eating CPK delivery. I can't wait for CPK-Sonora egg rolls, yummmmmm Tomorrow, the girls are going to a birthday party. I must say, I'm a little jealous-they're getting pedicures and manicures at this party! It sounds so fun. They are so excited and I'm excited for them. And jealous. Maybe I can sneak a trip to Crate and Barrel sometime this weekend. That might make up for it.
