Well, that was quite the birth. It was VERY different than my others. She did go into labor on her own, but it still ended up being QUITE interventive. Phew. I am TIRED. It's very disconcerting getting a call at 2:30 in the morning on a day when you're expecting an induction. I thought it was my alarm! HAHAHA!
On another doula-related note, my doula friend and I are working on bringing The Business of Being Born here to town for a screening. We're hoping to do it through K-State would give it SO MUCH more crediblity. I'm hopeful. I've got an email in to the proper "authorities" and we're just waiting on the approval from K-state. VERY exciting.
Doula-ing is a wonderful job, I absolutley love it, but losing sleep at night and then going full-tilt all day is tough! I have to force myself to be patient with my kids. They do not care if I'm tired. Luckily, they're both being WONDERFUL today, so that is a definite bonus.
Henry is watching Clifford. Man, what a good mom I am. I have a big sling order and laundry as tall as I am, but am I doing it? NOPE! I'm vegging. Tomorrow, I'll be myself again. Today, I'm totally phoning it in.
I tried to plan ahead, I even cooked dinner YESTERDAY for today, but since my friend and I cook on opposite nights for both families, I messed up and gave her too much and only saved enough for Derek and Henry but not me. I guess I thought I'd still be doula-ing. It's okay, I actually LIKE cereal for dinner.
Okay, now Spencer is ALSO watching Clifford. I'm still an AWESOME mom. Sigh.
