…all my troubles seemed… well, not sooo far away? but not too terrible, either! because oooh, the sweet faces i have gracing my eyeballs for 20 of 24 hours a day!! and like, i’m not gonna complain about needing coffee, either, because as i’ve noted so. many. times. via. every. social. media. outlet… i love coffee. with a passion maybe only shakespeare could describe. terribly sorry, adrenals!!! hang in there, babes!!
anyway! rands from yesterday. becauuuuse… because!
basically, i’m like, super excited that both my babies were born and are real. with rocco, madddalena’s always like, “i can’t believe he was bor-en!” and i’m like, “i can’t either!!” and he keeps on getting more fun every day… and i’m all, “wait, rocco, weren’t you just born?!!” but no! he’s growing like a champ. and then maddalena gets all mature and stuff on me and i’m like, “babies!! don’t go to kindergarten and college and get married and leave me yettttt!” i’m a big picture person. to a fault. clearly.
anyway! we, as a tiny circus, took minnie for a follow-up vet visit yesterday just to determine what i already knew… her poor little leg is gonna need surgery. my minnie!! my original baby princess! she has patellar luxation [wiggly kneecaps] which has lead to muscle atrophy in one leg and arthritis in both hind legs. my poor fluffy meemers! so, one of her legs is heart-breakingly useless right now and she’s only 7… she has so many years left! i want her to be able to frolic happily around the farm again!! so. it has to be done. i’m sorry, minnie! i love you!! you shall frolic once again!!
ps. i see all these babies that like, sleep in their carseat and stuff? ummmm, no. mine have both hated the infant carseat with the fire of one thouuusand suns. poor rocco!! he is traumatized every time we go anywhere! it’s completely miz. so, as he fell apart and minnie tolerated, maddalena and i snagged some starbucks chocolate chip cookies [love that drive-through!] on our gas-getting detour home… because, you know… emotional fuel, car fuel… girls need it all sometimes.
and fast forward to way later!!! late evening brought simultaneous sleepage for both little bunbuns, which was unexpected and glorious. i did not use that time wisely. i didn’t even have wine! what?! it’d have put me to sleep, though, because my afternoon coffee didn’t even touch my tireds. but i did have semi-adult convos and cuddles with stevo before happily diving headfirst into my new routine of watching the mindy project until rocco officially goes nightynight… and this made me laugh! “how are your episiotomy stitches healing?” and kendra, ha! yep, don’t worry, i snapchatted it…
so, i kiiiinda wish mindy was my doctor sometimes? except, no i don’t! because i love my doctor, and really, this made me miss her. aaand yes, i realize it’s not super normal to miss your doctor. i’m weird about my attachment disorder. 😉
well, that’s that! random thursday documentation complete! xoxoxo
