Thought #1: Everything tastes better with pumpkin.
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 cup water
Big dash of cinnamon
A sliced banana
1/4 cup pureed pumpkin
On top: Cashews
Thought #2: They need to invent some sort of sensing device that tells parents whether a babyâ€™s diaper is poopy and how poopy exactly. Because you know what? After a 2 AM feed, the last thing you want to do is take off a babyâ€™s diaper because you heard a little toot, freak him out and make him cold, and discover it was a ghost poop.
Thought #3: SO CLOSE TO ROLLING FRONT TO BACK. See above! So close.
Thought #4: While I am not sore from Saturdayâ€™s 5 mile race, I did wake up this morning with killer IT band symptoms. (The IT band is a tendon that runs from your hip to your knee on the outside of your leg.) I sleep on my side with a thin pillow wedged in between my knees, and I think one of the unfortunate side affects of pregnancy is that either 1) my hips are wider; 2) my joints are looser; or 3) a combo of those fun little facts, which results in my IT band being easily irritated. Time to stretch-stretch-stretch.
Thought #5: Does not being sore after a race mean 1) you trained well and raced intelligently or 2) you couldâ€™ve tried harder? Discuss.
Thought #6: My neighbor, who has triplets that are gestationally Henryâ€™s age (they had Henryâ€™s due date but were born two months earlier) WON a half marathon this weekend. Yes, a women who just had triplets WON a half marathon. Talk about serious dedication and overall awesomeness. Whatever potion sheâ€™s drinking â€“ she should package it up and sell it.
