No Baby - Yet
According to my baby ticker I have 16 days until my due date. Marley was 14 days early, but I'm not planning on going early again. For one thing I'm sick. Not fun - especially being nearly 9 months pregnant.
I think the sickness is clouding my brain. Friday morning Marley & I headed out the door to Ikea. I really like that store, but it is a trap. I can never get out of there. They were having this blow-out on some bar stools and I decided to pick us up a pair.
We get loaded up in the car. I actually had put Marley's car seat on the other side of the car because I was having issues with the seat belt. We start driving down the freeway and Marley opens her door! I about freaked. Her arms were not in the seat belt. She often wiggles them out and the child lock was not flipped on that side because she's usually on the other side of the car. There was tons of traffic and all I could do was pray one of those desperate prayers that she would not go flying out the car door.
Anyway, after I nearly have a heart attack, we get to Ikea.
We rush in (30 minutes after it had opened) and as we're riding the elevator up to get our stools I remember that Marley had decided to wear underwear this morning. No, she's not potty-trained. So, we take a detour to go potty just to be safe. I had been in such a hurry to get inside the store I hadn't put any diapers in my bag and I thought I could hurry and get the stools and get back to the car in time to put a diaper on her before she had an accident.
We get up to the floor with the stools and they are sold out. All 1,000 of them. Marley is walking around beside me while I am looking at their other stools and she runs into a table and starts crying. I pick her up and she wets all down me, herself and the floor. So much for prevention. She must not have emptied her bladder because she had literally gone 2 minutes before that happened and it was not a small accident. All I could think was that after being a mom for 2 years, I should not have been such a ditz about these things.
I think I will be laying low for the next couple of months. Who knows what kind of exciting day we might have once this little guy is outside the womb and I actually have to think about his safety and well-being as well!
