Happy Solar Eclipse day! Is anyone making time to observe it?
Next week is my last week of maternity leave, and I'm having all the feels. DH will be home with DS for 2 weeks before we transition him to daycare, so that helps. I totally realize that I'm the one that will have the separation anxiety.
Also, pissed about our neighbor's dogs across the street. They get out all the time and just roam into our yard or down this street. This morning I was going to go for a quick walk with DS in the Tula FTG, and they were out in their front yard and started barking and kind of growling when we walked out and then started coming towards us (they're medium/big dogs). Since DS is in a front carry with his little legs hanging down, I had to slowly back up towards the house, and sternly say "get back" if they moved. SO. MAD. I texted H, and he was like, "Grrrr....now I have to say something." Ugh. I'm a dog person, but their dogs are clearly a little out of control.

I'm not near the path of totality, at work today, and don't have eclipse glasses so I'll only be observing the pictures online. It's my first full week back at work, I'm pretty bummed to be back and have a full week ahead of me. My manager agreed to letting me wfh 2 days a week so I need to figure out when I'm going to do that this week - I think it will be easier when DH is back at work and the girls are in daycare. I was home last Friday and he kind of treated it as if I was there to help him watch the girls. He's taking 4 weeks of paternity leave so they'll be starting daycare Sept 12th. DD1 is still going two days a week and she loves it which makes it a little easier to send DD2 this time around but I totally get the separation anxiety.
gimmesugar sorry about your run in with the dogs this morning, confrontation with neighbors is never enjoyable. Hope they are apologetic and receptive when you bring it up with them.
I draw a hard line with others dogs when it comes to the safety of my kids....if they're not respectful of your discussion then I would let them know that you're going to escalate your concern to XWZ and then follow through. They clearly are not secured.
I'm telling our daycare and preschool about leaving work and giving my notice tomorrow. I'm excited and also a little freaked out! Aside from ML I've been working full time since I finished grad school.
I finally went to PT for my DR....she things it's going to be a long recovery process....boo...and I have to wear an abdominal binder as much as possible...that's going to look nice under my clothes 😳
pinkmickey24 Yes, I totally get that. At work, my days and tasks were mapped out and scheduled pretty meticulously, which is very different than my life at home with DS.....buuuuut....work can be a drag 😉
chknma did your PT give you exercises to do at home? Diastisis can take a long time in general to close. What kind of binder does she have you using? Mine doesn't show under my clothes (it's compression) but there's actually conflicting info on if a binder will actually help or not
I've found that inner core training and stability exercises really help. They feel stupid and not like they're doing much at the time, but they're really helping. To top it off, they help with the snizzing!
cmb I've been mostly just trying to focus on engaging my (sad!) abdominal throughout the day when I'm bending, twisting, lifting etc....and then try to do some when I'm sitting or laying...and I do feel like I already feel a difference...or maybe wishful thinking ;-)
We will start after 6 months once DD3 can support herself sitting and shows interest in food. Basically it's just exposing them to different foods with an understanding that "food before one is just for fun" since Formula of BM are still primary source of nutrition. I usually feed (BF) and then offer some finger foods. I start with avocado and then move on to other soft finger foods
