Days that is, since Henry started daycare, or "school" as we call it for his sake (and maybe a bit for ours too - it just feels better than saying daycare). This morning when I dropped him off, I removed his hat, hung up his coat, chatted with him a bit and then he took the teacher's hand and went off to see the babies. He likes to go see the babies in the morning (and no we won't be giving him a sibling any time soon thankyouverymuch!), so that is often the distraction used when I am leaving. This morning, he DID NOT CRY!!! I was so happy!

In other news, my treadmill walking is going well. I did take roughly a week off during the plague, but now I am back at it. Some nights I have to force myself, but so far I'm sticking to my 6 days a week. I know I chose wisely to start small and my back is already feeling a bit better. I kind of want to get a bosu ball because I think it would be great for my balance & core, but again, I better stick to my small goal for a month or two before I start adding on.

And one last random note, I think I might be slightly lactose intolerant. Without getting too gross, having digestive issues has always been pretty common for me, but not to an extent that it really bothered me. So, post-plague as I slowly returned to the land of normal eating, I of course went into for my usually non-fat chai tea latte. And it gave me a stomachache. And crazy bloating. So after two days like that, I switched to soy in my chai. Holy crap! What a difference. So, I think I'm jumping on the soy bandwagon.

Yay Henry!

Good job sticking w/ the treadmill! Jason & I are hoping to make it to Chicago in March or April and there's a darn good chance I'll give you my Bosu. (Just taking up space in my condo. Maybe I'll actually try it once first.)

Soy milk...yum (ok...not really yum but not bad either)! I've never had it in a chai but Im sure my tummy would appreciate it too.

So you're saying I have 20 more days of tears to survive?? I am having a hard enough time with the "no go school" at the breakfast table...may need medication next week when I have to do drop off.

And c'mon...go for number 2. I promise to stop complaining about pg the second time around so as not to scare you off!

Cut out any and all dairy for a week. If you feel like a million buck, you'll know.
