Where does the time go?

We had a nice Father's Day and spend the afternoon /evening at Gabriel's Grandpa's. He is dying of Congestive Heart Failure so it was nice for him to have everyone over. He LOVES Mark. Mark just ran arround collecting sticks and trying to eat bugs and other little boy things. He missed his second nap AND stayed up after 9pm, when his bed time is supposed to be 7! So he was very over-tired when we got home.

Monday he was still catching up from that. He slept in until almost 8am! We went to Book Babies, and Mark was so tired he didn't want to dance or clap or sing. He just sat in my lap and cuddled. He still wwanted to go into the playroom afterwards. LOL. But he started getting cranky so we didn't stay long. For those of you wondering, I did go arround and talk to other moms this time. I think I had conversations with 3 or 4 moms. It is just like talking on mommy blogs. All about poop and sleep (theirs and the baby's) and when to have another kid and how to teach sharing.

Plus no one has names. There is Simon's mom and Meredith's mom and Abby's mom and Logan and Julie's mom and the preppy mom that comes in a sundress and heels and Chris's mom and Anna's mom. I only got one name yesterday and that was because I asked for it.

Today we are going out to pick strawberries, I think. The season is finally here. We are supposed to have a good crop this year because of all the rain we've had. It should be interesting to see how Mark will do. He doesn't like to wander away from me, so I don't think that will be a problem. We are just going to make it a small trip and repeat it a couple times this week so he doesn't get worn out.

Sorry this post is so blan, but all of my awake constructive moments are spent trying to clean or get things ready for the baby or run errands.
Hopefully I should be able to catch a break tomorrow and get a decent post in. Plus this is good practice for the withdrawls you all will be getting after Abby is born. If I don't psot for a week or more, don't freak. I probably just had a baby.

I had to rush over to tell you... I got the candy package you sent me as part of the candy swap, and MAN ARE YOU WAY TOO GOOD TO ME! It is (and some of it should be in the past tense "was" as I've started making a dent into it) so great, and it's like you read my mind as to what I'd love, and I'm a picky kid. I will definitely be blathering about how awesome it is on my blog before the end of the week. Thank you thank you thank you!

Oh, and some of my best memories as a kid are picking berries with my mum (and even grandmother).

Sounds like a busy momma. But i can totally relate. I saw your lil ticker for you angel and your lil boy. Also for your impending lil lady. My daughter will be 1 on the 3rd of august and come to find out when they finally calculated her due date after a big to do her due date was the 2nd. :o)
Congrats though i will have to pop in more to see when you have her and by then i will probably be a reg. reader :O)

Well done for talking to the other mums, I can sympothise with how hard it is to start talking to people you don't know. Must be nice to chat to other Moms who are going through similar things.

Mmm strawberries. They are great, and not prickly for Mark to pick. I hope he really enjoys it.

I know what you mean about mommies being referred to as "so and so's mom". That is so true.

Looks like you are on the countdown now for little Abby's birth. I hope this last month isn't too uncomfortable for you. It's getting hot!

Good for you for talking to the other mothers. I find making small talk very hard.
