Scotty is really curious about what life is going to be like after baby, he has even taken up watching a Baby Story on TLC. He calls it the baby TV show. We have discussions all the time now about how to hold a baby properly, what to feed him (not lunch meat!!!), and the fact that mommy will have to go to the hospital for a couple of days. He and Kevin have been really curious about how in the world is that baby going to get out of mommy's stomach?? To which, when they watched TLC they immediately related it to being a little like having a painful bowl movement. It was getting difficult to explain it to them until they watched a Baby Story for the first time. Then the light went on and I have yet to get that question for the 51st time. Now they are more than happy to tell any stranger... "Mommy is going to have to poop this baby out!" followed always with some giggles. Ahhh...boys....
Kevin isn't as curious; he kind of has the 'been there, done that' attitude, with the exception of the science part of it. How did it get there? How big is he now? Even though I don't think he remembers when Scotty was a baby because he was just 2 1/2 himself; he seems to have a pretty good idea that this is going to a huge change and he isn't so sure he is going to like it. I am sure this will be a major transition for all of us since it has been so long since we had a baby around.
School is right around the corner and I find myself trying to get everything ready all at once. Kevin will be going to a new school this year and Scotty will be going to Pre-school for the first time ever. He has been going to daycare once or twice a week, depending on my schedule. I am hoping this baby will hold out until at least the 2nd week of September, if not a little later. I am just bracing for him to come the first day of school!!!!
It feels like a hot summer to me. We have been enjoying swimming and the lake, but I am not so apt to take the boat out on my own during the day this summer as I don't feel like a safe boat driver right now.
