Day 2 without Bear's paws. My shoulder and neck twisted as they go cahoots with the bad wrists.
Worry not. Every ballet-trained knows how to deal with twists. Never freeze yourself into a statue, that's making things worse. Rotate or move the affected part very slowly in all possible directions, it'll be painful but the stressed muscles will loosen up. Massages help too.
I'm cool, really! Catch this!
Me : I love you.
Baby : Smile.
Me : My 心肝宝貝 ( precious ).
Baby : SMILE.
Me : What's for dinner ... hmm. Can I pop one of your thighs into the oven tonight?
Baby : Grin.
Me : You like it with spice and herbs, or terriyaki style?
Baby : Big grin and started kicking excitedly.
I swooped my darling up, and gave the biggest tightest hug that could restore him back into my belly if we're made of jellies. Pain? What pain? He's my healer, my sweetener, the reason I carry on.
