MG: Mommy, I can't go to sleep because I am afraid of the thunder!
Mommy: Yes you can, the thunder is more afraid of you than you are of it.
I guess I'm tired, because that didn't make any sense at all. And she must be tired, too, because she bought it.
It's storming here. Did you know it's actually a bit risky to give your kids a bath (or take one yourself) during a thunder storm? Yeah. The water and the metal pipes are conductive. People actually get hurt/killed this way each year. So, we took a quick bath and put the kids to bed. They're actually quiet, now, which is shocking (*rim shot*).
I haven't got anything else tonight. This hormonal stuff is bullshit. I need to either get knocked up or get back on the Mirena like yesterday. I can't do this again next month. Yuck.
Speaking of knocked up, have I told you that my bonus sister, Jill, is expecting? Yep, there's going to be a pretty boy baby in the family this fall. She and Brian got married right after Claire was born... MG was their flower girl. I am very excited to be an aunt again.
We've got a birthday party at the gym for one of MG's good friends tomorrow afternoon, so there will be pictures. I got her a really cute leotard for her gymnastics classes at Target today during the middle of the storm. We were trapped there, wandering, for a while because it was too rainy and lightningy to attempt to leave. Of all the places to be trapped, Target is one of my favorites.
