This afternoon, Raelyn was feeling the baby kick. I told her the baby was about "this big" with my hands. I explained that the baby had to fit tight inside my belly. She asked if the baby had to sit in a ball shape to fit inside. So I decided to show her pictures of babies inside the womb so she could get an idea how babies fit inside mommy tummies. I went through a couple of pictures, giving quick explanations about them. We came across one picture and she said "Oh, babies sit upside down?!" My response "Yes, they have to sit head down so they can... Never mind I am going to stop there." I was going to say, babies sit head down because when they are born they come head first. I quickly realized that this is way more than I wanted to tell her. I don't want to get into how babies come out, not yet anyway!

Raelyn turned 5 in January. She just graduated from preschool last Friday! She is so excited to finally go to kindergarten! She will be attending Benjamin Franklin Charter School. She gets excited about every time we past by it. Raelyn is definitely the oldest. She tries to be a mom to Tyson all the time. She loves little kids. She often is trying to tell me what I need to as a mom and lectures me if I didn't do something right. None of this ever goes over well with me, I mean who wants a 5 year old telling you what to do?! She is so excited to have a new sibling! She is always talking about when the baby comes we can do this and that. She is going to be a great little helper when the baby comes! Raelyn loves to have things clean and organize. She will come and re-organize something after I did it or tell me how to do it. I am trying hard to let her do it her way, which isn't easy for me. But she is a girl after my own heart. She is SO much like me when I was a kid.

I have had these hideous bunion since I was 14 yrs old! Most people do not develop them at such a young age. Most people get them as they are older. I am just lucky I guess. So I decided it was time to get something done about this! I went to a Podiatrist and scheduled a surgery. The surgery is quick and was only 1hr long. The recovery, on the other hand, is 8 weeks!
What is a bunion? Well, it is your big toe joint that gets pushed out when your toe gets pushed in. High heels and tight shoes can overtime cause a bunion to form. In my case, genetics played a role. Not exactly sure how, it just sorta did it on its own.
