And he loves it! He only goes for about 2 hours 3 days a week, but it's perfect! He really enjoys it a lot and it's nice for me to have a little quiet time to myself once in awhile. In fact, Bennet had so much fun on his first day, he didn't want to leave!! His teacher reports that he's doing well. But it seems he is testing them!! He pretends to not understand simple directions when he doesn't want to do something!! Don't worry, I made sure to let her know that this is only Bennet's OLDEST trick! hehe Poor kid is gonna be bummed out when he figures out they know what he's up to!!
We also joined the co-op at the gym! Bennet and I go there three times a week now. I work out for an hour while he plays with the other kids and then I watch the kids for an hour. It's really nice to get out of the house and Bennet loves socializing! Factor in his weekly playgroup and our bimonthly MOPs meeting (Moms of Preschoolers), and we've got one full social agenda!!
Baby Boy ____ (it wouldn't be fun if I didn't tease you all about his name!!) is quite active these days! He is laying outrageously low and I often have to contort myself into funny yogic positions to try and shimmy him up! Tim thinks it's hilarious and seems to be under the illusion that my birthing should be quick and easy since he's "hanging out near the exit". His words, not mine!!
I have an appointment for a prenatal massage in a week and I can't wait! They're offered here on base at the gym for a reasonable price and lord knows my aching body could use it!! I'll let you all know how it goes!
Oh yea...I'm 21 weeks now!! Past the halfway mark! WOOHOO!!
