There are two lessons my father taught me from an early age that I wish America would learn. #1- Nothing on earth is free, if it sounds to good to be true- it is! And #2 Life is not Fair! I think we would be happier, as a country, and certainly more 'free' if we acknowledged those two truths in the National Conversation. That is all I have to say about that.

The kid is sick. Teething I am sure due to the low grade fever, and crazy amount of drooling. It has made for a really rough couple of days, coupled with the fact that I can't sleep, tripled with me not doing well at the end of pregnancy- well friends, I could use a prayer or two!

That being said, mr. man is adorable when he is sick :) When he is not crying, he is cuddling or laughing randomly. He has these sleepy eyes, coupled with bursts of energy. I figured, in my good moments during this sickness, that God has given this gift to me right before lil' Joseph was born. It has been nice rocking him in my arms again, having him cuddle and remembering what he was like in those first few weeks...I can't believe we get to have another one of these things! Life rocks.

Speaking of life rocking, the husband has had some major scores this week. Including, but not limited to, letting me use 'July' money to get take out from my favorite *expensive Italian Restaurant. Food and I are at odds the last couple weeks of pregnancy and there is a lot of throwing up once again, so eating food that actually tastes good is a lovely thing. In addition to that, last night, sweet husband tried his hardest to stay up with me through my insomnia. It was actually really cute, because the later I stay up, the more often he has to get up with the baby in the morning. SO, last night, at about ten, I made the greatest effort to actually fall asleep. He was rubbing my back, but kept falling asleep as he was doing it! He tried to rally and stay up till I fell asleep, but that wasn't coming anytime soon. At about 11:00 pm I let him off the hook. At about midnight thirty is when we realized neither of us would get any sleep because of the lil' man! He is a good dude. We tag teamed the next six hours- it rocked and was absurd and all things not pleasant- but it had it's moments of humor.

Um, best news ever! I can't believe I didn't start with this! I am dilated at two (I am saying two because three days ago, I was almost 2) and the baby is engaged and ready to go. Please Please Please keep those prayers up! There are other lovely things happening including occasional contractions, crazy body changes and of course, puking, that indicate that the time could be near. I know there is still a really good chance a c-section will happen and I refuse to be one of those women who is depressed by a child that comes into this world with more medical intervention than one would hope...BUT, if thing could work out wonderfully, well gee golly- wouldn't that be awesome for the future birth department?!?!? Fingers and toes crossed- but really just trustin' Jesus.

Speaking of trustin' Jesus. I did ask him nicely if we could wait until tomorrow because I would like to get my Sacrament of Reconciliation on before the birth of the newest little one! I still like to get my Sacrament on any time there is a chance of death (is that weird to write). But, I also do it other times too, so I am not totally a heathen.

And finally- to end where I started... "Members of this court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation's elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from their political choices."- Chief Justice Roberts.
