Luckily He Doesn't Read My Blogs!
The monkey on the left (yeah the stuffed one lol) is what I got Mo for Valentine's Day! I wish I could have gotten him something more, but I was spending HIS money to get it (since I'm not working) and it just made me feel bad. The same thing happened with Christmas and his B'day...ALWAYS HIS money (even though he tells me very seriously that it is OUR money). Eh, I feel like if I laid around all day and did all the fun things I wanted, including sleeping in, while he works his butt off keeping the Galleria safe...it's HIS money. Sure I don't JUST lay around...I wash the dishes, the clothes, I put Shawn's nursery together, I organized the closet (I'll get around to folding and putting the clothes away too), AND I almost always have dinner ready for him when he gets home. However, all that is split between days and I don't think it's worth the $12 an hour he makes by chasing and banning crimnals, patrolling, going on emergency medical calls, AND being in charge of 10 other employees every day for 8 or more hours! So, if I do get him a present I have to make sure it's something cute but cheap (heartfelt...and we LOVE monkeys) and did I say cheap yet lol?? PLUS how can I get him anything else when he spent most of his money on getting me an iPhone!!! He got me an iPhone for V-Day! He is crazy, but sweet...he said everyone had a nicer phone than me (except for Mom since she doesn't have a phone but SHOULD at least for emergencies)!!!
Well, getting off that tangent I have been having a lot of fun counting Shawn's kicks and awake time. I narrowed his schedule down to this (it's almost the same day to day):
3:45am (yeah I stay up late it's sad)
7:00am (although I only noticed this once since I am usually asleep)
and 11:30pm (and then his cycle begins again)!!
I think that it is amazing that he keeps a schedule too! This way I can rest assured that he is being active and I don't have to be worried! Like I have said before I have high levels of anxiety (which luckily have stabilized nicely thanks to pregnancy) that make me worry a lot so I have to know that Baby Shawn is ok for the sake of my sanity!
I'd love to continue blogging since I feel like I have so much to say, but I need to finish my Baby Shower Thank-You's before Mom kills me! Hope you enjoyed!
