What's happening in my world....

Busy, busy, busy, busy! So much is going on, and the day to day is getting a bit crazy. But not too much crazy, just busy crazy!

My hubby has a show this weekend with Lucky Boys Confusion at Penny Road Pub in Barrington. I won't be there, but if you're in the area you should check it out for sure!

Both kids doing great. My daughter is officially mobile. She rolls, pushes, and slides all over the floor. She's also sitting pretty well by herself.
Just trying to figure out what to do with her while we play outside. I was holding her and my son wanted to get in his swing and I was juggling 2 kids and realized I need to start planning to set her in or on something outside! ;) I did get a popatot (which I will be writing about soon) but she is still too small for it. Maybe a blanket or something for now!

I'm freaking out a little bit about tomorrow. I am getting injections in my spine (c-4) to relieve a bulging disk from pushing on my spinal cord.
Perhaps I should give you a little back story......
I had a cervical fusion of my C-5 C-6 2 years ago and since then I have been fine! About 4 weeks ago my neck pain started again and a CT and MRI later I found out that the disk above the surgery site and the disk below are bulging. The one above is worse and instead of jumping back into surgery they are trying injections first. I guess if it doesn't work tomorrow they will try one more time before they recommend surgery again. Not ideal, but my doctor tells me this is something that will keep happening throughout my life. Best case scenario I will get a few years in between treatments.
So wish me luck!
A positive spin on this is that I will not be able to lift either kid for a few days, so it will be like a little mommy break!  Hey, I'll take what I can get! lol

as a mommy of a 31 pound 18 month old who LOVES to be held...I can relate...giving you a much needed break. Enjoy that at the very least, right?

Oh, my goodness. I hope everything goes smoothly with the procedure.
I love the positive spin on it on taking a break.
How old was your daughter again?
My kids are only 20 months apart and my daughter did not walk until she was 16 mos old. I thought I would die.
So, once she became mobile (crawling, pulling up and cruising) I could no longer keep her in a carrier or a stroller for too long. I simply let her play in the playground. Had to watch her constantly but made her stronger (and very dirty).

You are busy mama! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers! I hope your injection goes smoothly and you do not need surgery. Did doc say if injections would need to be done on a routine basis? I hope it works and you feel better soon! Pain is not fun! :(
Keep us posted!
