Thankful Thursday: What CHRIXEAN is thankful for this week
1) Nicky's silver medal award. My son garnered 2nd honor this year and will be receiving a silver medal on his graduation day from pre-school. I am so proud of him! I know school has been really tough for him this past year (what with trying to learn Filipino, when I myself did really poorly in it when I was in school), and for him to make Silver is a great achievement for me :-)
2) The start of The Amazing Race! It's one of my favorite reality shows ever (next to American Idol) and I look forward to every episode for my thrill fix for the day (I just love watching all the bickering that goes on! hehe).
3) This really great book I found (AGAIN):
It's from the same author of "What To Expect When The New Baby Comes Home" (which I talked about in this earlier post), Heidi Murkoff. I realized that at this stage, this book was a more appropriate read because it prepared Nicky of the baby's coming as early as the 1st month of gestation. It explained everything a young 6 year old needed to know (and could understand): Where's the baby? How did the baby get there (This was a toughy. Explaining sperms and ovums to a 6-year old just didn't seem right yet...)? How did the baby fit inside mommy? It's a great series which I highly recommend to moms-to-be!
4) I didn't have as bad a week (the afternoon-to-evening-sickness) as last week. I enjoyed eating a lot more and I even enjoyed a night out with a close friend without wanting to run to the bathroom every other half hour.
