"Apple Bites" -- Does anyone know of a good orthodontist? What a lot of snaggle-toothed mouths!Let me preface this with, yes, I am on bedrest. Yes, I am being careful. Ok, now that's out of the way.
Natalie hosted a Halloween party today for all the kids preschool age and younger, and their moms. We were requested to bring a Halloween-themed potluck item. Mine was carefully researched to be as easy as possible: Apples and slivered almonds. Definitely something I could make sitting down. Then I got Elizabeth into some of our dress up clothes, since costumes were encouraged. As for me, my festive attire included Halloween socks and an orange t-shirt. (I looked sort of like a pumpkin)
I made it to Natalie's and sat down. I was going to behave myself. I let others get Elizabeth her food, etc. Well, at the end of lunch, Elizabeth starts gagging on something. (Oh no! Not here!) And lunch makes a reappearance. I don't know why she has such a strong reflex. If something gets stuck in her throat, we will never have to worry about her choking to death... But I do catch most of it in my cup. Then I catch the second wave on my plate. Any other time I would have run her to the bathroom, but I'm not supposed to get up.
So our outing was cut short. We came home. I told Ryan on the phone later that it was a sign: I shouldn't leave the house, even for something we think is unstrenuous. I just am so tired of being stuck in the house. Everyone has been so nice though. Christine has been kind to come and clean my house, and we've had people bringing us dinner every night this week. And I get phone calls to check up on me. It really is making this process easier and it's so kind that everyone wants to help. Thanks to everyone.
