Our Idea of Sabbath Fun

You know how in the Laura Ingalls books she’d talk about quietly playing with her dolls, or looking at a special book on Sunday.

Well, today I showed my kids the joy of pitting edema.

My feet are REALLY swollen, and while it is pretty hot here today (I actually had Drew turn on the AC because I was just too uncomfortable for words) it’s pretty crazy. I showed them how if they pushed their fingers into my feet/legs it would make an impression. That was good for about 10 minutes of fun. They made their fingers into different shapes and tried to see how far up my leg it goes.

Now, THAT is a fun mom. :)

    That’s a barrel of laughs, right there.

    However, I dont’ feel sorry for you until you have experienced daily 118+ degree weather the week before you have your baby. My ankles were the size of my thighs.
