...cause this is what i got on the agenda.

pregnancy doesn't get you out of everything.

what are those brown things on my legs you ask?
husband's knee pads.
so i can get on all fours and scrub the floor without bruising mah bony knees.
sweet!
you're jeal??
maybe he'll lend them to you too?

  1. SO CUTE! I mean, not that you are scrubbing...but your belly and your getup :) I think you should plead out of it. Plus, don't you have 4 little kids that you could employ? Bribe? Anything?
    Don't forget to post the before and after! ;)

  5. @katygirl, i dont think im doing it this season- boo!! i won't be nearly as good about watching it since it goes into the summertime as i was with brad's season. but i will say that william and ben (wine-maker) are my faves and that bentley is trouuuuble.

    @wendy, i'd post the before and after if i thought they'd be vastly different....but im doing a pretty crappy job!

  6. This might come across as a joke and rude, and this is neither, but my chiropractor told me that being on all fours when pregnant is actually really good for mother and baby (granted that you're not working TOO hard) just make sure to loosen up your obligues and let gravity take action in the core area. It helps the baby get in the right/prime position. You still have a ways to go but this is a good thing to do when full term as well because it takes pressure off back and hips. It's also fun for the baby to just sway around freely in there :-) I think you'll really like this website, check it out. www.spinningbabies.com Happy cleaning, chika!

  7. @daniella, OPTIMAL FETAL POSITIONING!

  9. Oh that is some bullshit.

    You need to read this and put it into action before baby boy comes. My mom did it with popsicle sticks...just as effective. They will be fighting over who gets to do what chores.

    And you'll get stuff done around the house without looking like a slavedriver.

  14. @Daniella and Bridget (obv.): Yes! Like cat/cow yoga positions. Used to do 'em all.the.time. My little guy was head down during the entire last trimester. Guess it works?!

    And then demanded ice cream.

  17. Two words that will change your life (floor cleaning wise): Steam mop. No chemicals or bending, it sanitizes in 30 secs using steam. I have the Shark Steam Pocket Mop.

  21. you have pink rubber gloves and that is awesome.

    I'm not so worried about you scrubbing the floors...just hoping that you are using a natural non toxic cleaner. :)

  23. Haha! Oh NO! You are a good momma scrubbin' floors and keeping the house clean! Hopefully Hubby appreciates that. My mom also wears knee pads when she cleans the floors at home. I don't blame you! :)

  24. Wait... pregnancy isn't just sitting around being fanned and fed grapes all day while everyone else does the household chores??

    ...I may need to reevaluate my future plans.
