A shoe! Praise the Lord, we found the lost shoe!

Yes, Jenna has two shoes again!! That fit her!!! And they are sooo cleeean, I'm a bit freakishly parent-y about puddle jumping in fact because the shoes are SO PINK!

If anyone is interested in such minuitae, the missing shoe had been hidden in the dressing up box and although we'd been through it three times we hadn't spotted it. Maybe there's too much in the dressing up box. Or maybe there's too much pink in the dressing up box. Hey, I have a pink-obsessed four, against ALL of my own preferences.

In the meantime, I saw a doctor who did just what I thought she would and listened for about thirty seconds before printing me out a prescription for antidepressents. Which I still haven't decided what I'm going to do about. But Martin's work have agreed to pay him for the entire week he has had off, and that's one more subject for praise since they don't actually have to. And the baby kicked today and I got that excited feeling back, just for a moment, that I really really want to meet this baby, and it isn't just one more thing to demand energy from me when I don't have it after all - it's a real person and it's going to be OK.


  1. I am so glad you felt better after the "kick". As a mum to 3 i can tell you it is waay easier than 2 (at least it is for me!), I found 2 really hard, but i find 3 so lovely! Odd huh!
    O suffered servere pnd after number 2 and was so worried when i carried 3 that they gave me progesterone (suppositories) to use the minute he was born and i kept using them for approx 6 months! I was a different woman and they did me no harm at all. I was able to give more to all the kids, my husband and my home. Hope you decide to do what is best for you ;) Glad you found the lost shoe ;)
