I thought I would muscle through it and would manage but by breakfast time realized I could barely walk and couldn't lift the baby.
Fortunately my Mom came to the rescue. She not only helped me hold down the fort until my SIL arrived to pick the baby up, but she also served lunch, cleaned everything up, got my kids down for naps, and stayed here while I went to the chiropractor to have whatever slipped out of place put back. While I was gone, she did two loads of laundry, cleaned my kitchen, and some vacuuming. Thanks Mom!
I didn't think I was feeling better right after my appointment, but it definitely helped. I was able to get in and out of bed and change positions last night. I am still having major problems walking and can't sit or stand for very long. This week may be light on posts, I'll have to see how things go.
Aside from the excruciating pain, so far this weekend has been a little like a vacation. I had to work for an hour and a half today (ouch!), otherwise I have been lying around while my husband does everything else. He is really fed up with the kids already. He's used to me fielding the 500 "What would happen if..." questions that Kal-El asks every day. "What would happen if Spiderman saw a bad guy?" "What would happen if you are standing on railroad tracks and you see one big headlight coming?" What would happen if a spider catches a fly in his web?" "What would happen if today was my birthday?" I think this is his version of "why." As soon as the answer is out of your mouth he starts the next question.
I felt like super-prepared Montessori mom today. At breakfast Kal-El asked, "What kind of bugs do we have in our backyard?" I pulled out our new (to us) Simon & Schuster Children's Guide to Insects and Spiders his favorite was the stinkbug, which he now likes to report "squirts stinky juice on thing that might eat him. He looked at the pictures and I just answered any questions he asked, I didn't have to come up with any on my own...he had plenty. He wanted to know their names and what they ate most of the time. His most popular question was "what do they do to humans?" In other words...will this bite me, sting me, or drink my blood? He was working on his first animal classification. However, instead of classifying them by genius his categories were "bad bug or friendly bug."
