Question of the Week - Favorite Sport

In honor of the Olympics, I'm wondering:

What is your favorite sport to watch?

It doesn't need to be an Olympic sport, after all it is about to be football season and I know that's Londo's favorite sport.

Mine is definitely gymnastics, and (as I've mentioned before) I love the Olympics especially because of the gymnastics. (PLEASE don't tell me the result from last night. I have it recorded and plan to watch it tonight!) My second favorite sport to watch is football. I loves me some football, especially the Redskins. I am indeed ready for some football!

What about you? Do you have a favorite sport to watch? Do tell!

But not so much on TV. I like to go to games and sit down low and close. Close enough to tell who's smooshed against the boards because you see their face in the glass...not just the number on their jersey.
Mostly because I don't have any hockey fan friends and it's hard to get as pumped up without others who are feeling it with you.
For TV, it's boxing and horseracing (though I prefer racing in person too!).

Basketball -- March Madness.

I enjoy hockey and baseball in person but not on TV.

I enjoy Olympic swimming, especially if Michael Phelps is competing. Sure to be a great race.

Rugby. Because when Hubby first moved over here, before we got a little circle of Kiwi friends around us, I was the only one who'd watch it with him. We'd stay up late to watch the games live, and I'd snuggle up.

Also, its a fun sport to watch- lots of action, with out the incessant commercial breaks that are so common in American sports, now.
Synchro Diving!
Seriously who ever thought that up is insane!!!

Normally we never watch sports

Absolutely, positively no doubt about it--my favorite sport to watch is Michael Phelps' abs. What? That's totally a sport!

I used to like watching basketball with DH but he hasn't really been into it lately and I don't have the commitment to watch it at any more. So I can't say I really watch sports anymore. Lame, I know.

I like to betray my gender and not like any sport. I've half watched the olympics for the first time this year (although at this point I'm burnt out).

Does Ninja Warrior count as a sport?

I like watching football when beer is involved. That happens less frequently now that the kiddos are around... but I do still like to watch a game occasionally. Caramama, my husband is a huge Redskins fan, too!

Baby Fidgets in Sleep (and While Awake)

Since I've started this blog, I've had quite a few visitors find me through a search for something like "baby fidgets in sleep" or "baby fidgets in bed" or simply "baby fidgets." This leads me to believe that there are others out there with fidgety babies who drive them crazy enough to search on the internet for some information about fidgeting babies. So I thought I'd do a whole post to discuss the fidgety nature of my child and how I deal with it.

Do you want to know when my child first started fidgeting? IN UTERO!! I'm not kidding. When I was pregnant, this baby moved a lot. She was very often kicking and pushing and hiccuping. OMG, the hiccups! I thought they would drive me nuts. Every. Single. Day. For. Months. Straight. Often more than once a day. I am not exaggerating--you can ask Londo or the many people I worked with, all of whom had to hear about it. I just thought it was part of being pregnant, and it probably is, but I've al…

Some Babies Just Fidget

I have mentioned before that we had a very fidgety baby. It's been a while sinced I talked about it. Although she is still pretty fidgety, at her currently toddler stage it seems more normal and has in many ways translated into bigger, general movements, like climbing.

But I still get a ton of search hits that have to do with baby fidgeting or flailing while sleeping or nursing. Some people stay around and read a bit, and I hope they get what they need from the posts I wrote specifically aboutthis topic hoping that others realize they are not alone. Most people don't stay at all, and I figure they are probably looking for medical reasons why babies fidget (like I would).

Then I got this comment, which does indeed show that people are looking for medical reason. Anonymous said that she wasn't sure if the Pumpkin's fidgets were as severe are her 3.5 month old. Well anonymous, I can't be positive since I haven't seen your child, but at some points they were as bad …

Fidgety Baby Growing Up

My daughter was a very fidgety baby. More fidgety than any other baby I knew through all my years of babysitting, being an aunt and having friends and family with babies. So fidgety that I wondered if something was wrong, if there was an underlying reason for her fidgetiness.

There really wasn’t anything wrong. As far as I can tell, she simply has a LOT of energy in her body. Her father is the same way. Londo is full of energy and has always been a fidgeter. And me? I can’t sit in one position for a long period of time. I don’t really fidget so much as I shift positions periodically, and I don’t think I ever simply sit normal, facing forward with both feet on the ground when I’m in a chair. In fact, sitting normal sounds like torture to me.

But three years ago, when the Pumpkin was a few months old and through her babyhood, I didn’t know why she was fidgeting so much. When I would nurse her, when we’d be rocking her to sleep, when we would try to hold her calmly, when we’d be lying in…
