First day back at School
The Jord is now back in school - with a new (very pretty and impossibly skinny) teacher, Miss Duff.
She seemed sweet. I am very sorry that I wasn't in
a place to be sweet back! I'm not a very nice person these days.
These photos were taken of The Jord three years ago on his very first day of school.. Gosh he was SO little!
Anyway, since yesterday's effort to dislodge Miss Piggy failed so miserably, I walked The Jord to school today. It's only 1km so it's not too strenuous. I had had enough of this pregnancy impacting my normal activities with the boys so off we went.
We made it in good shape, and then my friend Tracy offered me a lift home. I took it - I know I probably shouldn't have!
It meant I could have a long visit with Leanne, my midwife.
I'm feeling much better about life. I have options now, obviously not my ideal dream birth - but I know that if this (and I) become intolerable I have options.
No, I'm not telling you what those are...
In the meantime, The Jord had a really hard time letting me go this morning. I don't know if it was first-day-back jitters or nerves about the impending birth. I think he worries more than he lets on.
I wish I had these smiles this morning, but I didn't.
His teacher was brilliant though.
He is due back in about half an hour and I'm truly hoping he had a better day.
this cobbler to welcome him home. Lets hope it gets me this brilliant smile back...
