    Yup, that's what the number ones mean. The speech bubble one refers to number of posts, cake is anniversary, heart is love it's you've received. The "@" one means you've been tagged in a post at least once. The check mark one means someone made their post a question, you answered it, and they marked your answer as an answer at least once. I don't know about the one that's a silhouette of a head. I think it just means that you've changed your profile picture from the default. 

    ETA: they don't do anything. They're just there.

  • @tyrion_  happy belated anniversary!! 9 years is amazing! I’m glad to hear it was a good night. :)

    I agree with this being a never ending month. December and January always seem to drag to me. After that the year just zooms on by. 

    So, all my crazy rage from the hormones running rampant through my system has turned me into a sassy asshole. That, compared with me binging Judge Judy clips since I put my children down about 2 hours ago has put me in a mood. I’ve never been one to yell at stupid people on tv, but that’s what I have been doing for the past 2 hours and it’s been great. I highly recommend it. 😅

  • I ended up with a huge gap in my work day today thanks to kids being out of school/daycare sick and all of the preschool holiday parties and concerts. I don't have another appointment until 1:45 and it's not even noon yet. I'm not complaining, since I'm exhausted, but it's always hard to go back to work after sitting at home in front of my Christmas tree for 2 hours. 

    I love December, but January, February, and March (basically the rest of winter) just drag on and on endlessly.

  • My H is so sick. I’m assuming it’s a virus/chest cold he’s miserable and I’m worried I’m going to get it next.

    @WishesSheCouldCook & @BusinessWife&nbsp; Yuckkkk.... I hope the sickness doesn't spread... I keep thinking over my break of all the things I'd like to do - like go into the city for a play... but then I think of the germs and think maybe I should just stay home. Ugh.  It doesn't help any that I'm a germaphobe.

  • Hope you two ladies can manage avoiding the sickness! It’s so hard to avoid during this time of year. 

    2 things: So, I’m wildermind but it confuses me with @wildrainbow here too so I’m going to go ahead and change early on so...haha.

    I don’t know if it was pregnancy but I hit a huge wall of tired today at work. Yesterday I sat on hold with an insurance for 3 hours. Today I sat on hold with the same insurance for 4 hours. 4 HOURS. 7 HOURS TOTAL. 
    After someone finally answered I felt like I’d hit a wall and didn’t want to do anything else for the day.

  • @ziggymama06 we had hoped to be able to travel out of state to see my family, but it's just going to be a bit much this year, for various reasons.  Will be nice to relax and stay around the house and more local family visits, and just enjoy making it a magical first Christmas the baby can really start to appreciate. 😊 What about you?

    @BusinessWife Relaxing and enjoying the magical time is what we plan to do too... sounds absolutely perfect! 💖

    @riatortillaxo Aww yay for family gatherings. Will you be sharing the news at all?  We are mostly seeing family over Christmas eve and day.

    I'm so looking forward to some lazy days... We may go into NYC for a day to catch a show, possibly Beatlejuice and a nice dinner as hubs and my gift to each other... we had planned a spa day but that won't be happening now  :D

  • @ziggymama06 I'm not sharing the news yet. I'm due late August so I will only be nearly 5 weeks at Christmas and I want to give it a little more time. 

    I'm also grateful for family close by! No traveling but lots of running around locally the next few days. 

    Sounds like everyone has long to do lists! I'm glad I'm not alone. I would probably be asleep already if I didn't just finish wrapping gifts.

  • Dh and I took the kids to look at christmas lights. Made everyone cocoa and brought blankets.

    Kids proceeded to fight in the back seat the entire time. My son is such a snitch now and his sister loves to antagonize the shit out of him.

    Her luck this lo will be a girl and give her a run for her money 😆

    My sister brought up an interesting subject. Sleeping arrangements. Where will this baby sleep?

    We have a 3 bedroom house. Each kid has their own room and we have one of each gender.

    My sister seems to think a girl cant share a room with my oldest because the oldest will turn 13 the month this lo is born.
    And then my son will be 5. Obviously a newborn will room with us. But long-term i think the kid will just share a room with whatever gender it is. 13 year old Will have to just down grade to a twin size bed.

    Thoughts?

  • @psychobutthead I would rather the 5 yo share a room with this child than a 13 yo. The sex doesn’t matter to me, they are family. My gf children, boy/girl, loved sleeping in the same room together. And they had their own rooms. That’s a huge age difference to share with an baby, IMO.

  • We are going out to dinner tomorrow with another couple and DH wants to wait until after we tell our families to share our news with them. I can manage the not drinking situation, but not falling asleep in my soup and not puking at the smell of food are going to be a challenge. 
    starlight_7BusinessWifeziggymama06
  • @blackgirlmagic see I thought that too originally but my sister was just all set that this kid cant share a room with my son if its a girl.

    I had thought to take all toys and toy storage out of his room to fit a 2nd bed and dresser. And. Put all toys in our den as a play room. It's what made the most sense to me but she was like no you shouldn't do that.

  • @psychobutthead I think your plan sounds like a good one!  There may come a time if it's boy/girl it becomes awkward, but 1. If it's another boy, it's totally moot and 2. I think you'll know when that time comes and cross that bridge when you get to it. 🤷

  • Hmm. In general, I'd group by gender, but that is a big age gap. I can potentially see issues with bed times being super different and the older girl wanting to hang out in her room. Or if you have her do homework in her bedroom or practice her musical instrument or whatever, that could be a challenge. Or you could just have bedrooms be for sleeping mainly and not a hang out/doing things room (and with all the trouble it's so easy for kids to get into online these days, I don't think that's a bad plan at all.)
