The five of us are settling in pretty well. Braeden is on Christmas break so it's not quite the normal routine. Plus all four of them are sick with Mr. B having a cough since I arrived. Finally made an appt so they would take him to the doctor. Walking pneumonia. I'm hopeful better little boy moods will return when they are all healthy again.
A challenge for me is sharing a bathroom. Mostly with the two little boys but since it is the first bathroom from the front door, it is often shared by all.
First thing in the morning if someone beats me in, I'm doomed. While it seems like 8 gallons come gushing out, I'm sure it's a few teaspoons of overnight tinkle. I decided to wear Depends at night now to provide a margin of safety. It is so embarrassing. After just two weeks! Last night I ordered some fancy pants by Icon so I don't look like an old, leaky grandma.
I sure hope they fit and I especially hope they WORK! Supposed to hold six teaspoons. Best of all, they have a great website with down to earth information about all kinds of things that happen "down there." (Icon is all about celebrating our strength as women, while chuckling at the ways our beautiful, imperfect, sexy, hilarious, resilient, leaky bodies can go rogue.) As well as sister companies. Check out Thinx (period proof panties) and Tushy ... add on bidet features.
Despite this being a very embarrassing issue ... they say 1 in 3 women have leakage issues. So I am not alone ....
