True story

Yesterday the girls and I were walking through Zeller$. We came to the ladies lingerie section where there were rows and rows of colourful bras hanging up.

Rosebud: Papoosie Girl, when you grow up and your boobies grow which one will you pick?
Papoosie Girl: (slightly dejected) When I grow up I won't have any taste.
Me: What? Why won't you have any taste when you grow up?
Papoosie Girl: (glancing my way) Look at you Mom you are all plain and stuff, I just figure you lose your taste for cool clothes when you grow up.

Note: I was wearing a solid brown Tommy long sleeved top with jeans and Sketchers. My bra and undies (which she saw me put on) sadly are of of the solid variety as well, noting that the undies are maternity undies in blue at least.)

Me: I have taste. I just wear more simple patterns and colours than you like.

Papoosie Girl: (not really convinced and grinning) OK Mom I guess you do have some taste.

Cut to this morning where I put on a navy and light blue rugby style maternity top she hasn't seen before...

Papoosie Girl: That top is nice Mom (I tell her it was Auntie Katrina's) maybe you do have some taste after all.

Me: Thanks honey.

We have settled somewhat into our school routine. I just got a memo today though that some of the morning SK kids are going to be moved to the afternoon class with the same teacher. They are asking for volunteers, but even if they don't get them, some of the kids will be moved. This is not good for Rosebud since she is pretty tired in the afternoon and often naps or at least rests on her bed. Since I have a pretty good relationship with the Principal I am going to try to catch her later today to get more information and let her know that I would prefer for Rosebud to stay in the morning class...they want to hear concerns so I will oblige.

I am feeling better for the most part and am now 4 1/2 months along. It is starting to seem real now. We are talking about a new stroller and how we are going to combine the girls into one room. In some ways it seems so far off, but I know the fall will fly by and next thing you know it will be the holidays. My next ultrasound is in a few weeks and I think we are leaning towards finding out if this baby is a girl or boy. I still really don't want too, but I think it will make our preparations a lot easier.

I know I have been scarce around these parts, but I am reading even if I don't always comment. I have made a point of making my blog and blogging in general fit into my life, although I kind of miss when it was threatening to take over my life!

I keep saying to myself a family of five. It still doesn't always seem real. I hope I can hold it all together.

Well, it must be tough to be so square when you have such hip kids.

"Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've hot him on the spot, welcome back.
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back."

These kind of conversations just do NOT happen with boys. Which is good because I would break down in tears, crawl off to a corner and sob away the nostalgia of my youth when I had fancy taste.

If you find out this baby's gender than you only have half the challenge of finding a good baby name! It's about time management!

Can we start a baby pool anyway? I'm guessing boy.

I'm glad you are posting about the pregnancy, kids, fam. I've been wondering how it's going. I think it is very exciting.
Nice of your girl to say you have *some* taste. At least you've got that going for you.

A woman with your impeccable taste will be able to hold it together no problem.

Ah, the blunt, cruel honesty of young children. It's both searing and kind of funny...
Glad to hear that things are going well!

You should remind her someday about saying that. Possibly when she's 4+ months pregnant. That's a doozy -- but I'm glad to hear she's amended her verdict somewhat!
