11/8/06: before 8am my wife calls me to tell me she is concerned that our 3rd baby, @ week 31, is not moving as much as it was, inside her.
What a heart stopping moment. I put my ear to her "stomach" to heart its heart beat going really fast, "baby is ok" i tell her. She made a call to the hopsital & went to get everything checked out.... by noon thankfully we knew that all was & is ok.
As we have 2 other kids i stayed at home to mind them. One got up at 9.00 & the other at 9.30. We 3 had brekkie together, hung out washing, watch kids TV, went outside & put together an outdoor 3-seater swing chair for mammy to rest in when she came home. Cooked dinner & had it served up for her return at 1.30pm.
After cleaning up the dinner vessels/etc we all went outside for some R&R. played yathzee with my eldest kid while my wife & youngest sat on the swing chair, reeelaaaaaxing
Then i cut our lawn, thank goodness for ride-on's. Later i cut down a big bush/crappy tree that was obstructing our view of a local hill.
After supper time myself & the 2 kids went on our trampoline....... now that was good fun.
Later my wife & I had our own "fun"
In all alot of quailty time was spent with my kids & wife today, so maybe the inital "scare" was a good thing.....re-prioritised things for me.
