I was up at 2, your dad at 3, me again at 4:30 for the rest of the day. Your cute, but you're making your mother cray-cray.
I hurt my back carrying Charlie in his car seat one night when I had to take him into a trek meeting. I didn't realize I'd hurt it, but after carrying it a lot, and far from my body so my legs don't bump it, and to get it into the middle of the car, I'm sure that was what did it.
I almost couldn't move for several days. That's never happened to me before. I thought if I just slept well one night it would be fine in the morning, but no. I couldn't even get out of bed in the morning! It's taking a long time. At first I could barely stand up from a sitting position, or lay down. Now when I read to the kids at night I lay on my stomach, and then find that I can't get up. Or even if I just take too big a step it's crazy painful. I'm never carrying that car seat again!
I am still recovering in other ways, and having no fun doing it. I just feel restless. I want to do stuff with the warmer weather, and exercise, but am having one health issue after another that prevents it. If it weren't for the joy of a child, no one would ever do this!
I sure love you, my Charles.
