So it looks like the insurance wants to fix the car, rather than total it. I'm happy and sad about that. Happy because I love my car, but sad because I don't know if I'll ever feel safe in it. We may look into trading both our cars in for something else. They're both paid off and we're not really in a position where we can afford a car payment at this point. Trade-in value on both cars together might just cover a new car. We like the Mazda5 we have on rental right now. It's so much more family friendly than the Forester, now that we have two kids and sometimes want to transport more people than just us. Sliding doors rock! I do have high praise for Subaru's designers though! We were hit at 40 mph and none of us has more than a few achey muscles. The car needs over 5k of repairs, but it did what it was supposed to do and protected us all, from the 17 lb infant to the [number redacted]-lb adults. Also big love goes out to Britax for their phenomenal carseats. And also to all my CPST friends and listmates whose advice caused us to make the choices we made in carseats, and to be so completely anal about them that they were properly installed and used. They undoubtedly saved Edgar's life, and likely prevented Bob from spending some serious time in the hospital, if not outright saved her life.

We took the kids back to the ped yesterday and they both checked out fine. We also both went in and saw our doctors. Mine took x-rays and offered me meds which I don't want to take because I'm still nursing. [ profile] llnaughty's took x-rays and offered him PT as well as muscle relaxants and high dose ibu. (I think I like his better. She did a much more thorough exam and seemed a lot more compassionate. I think I'll change to her.)

Thanks to everyone for your kind words. It means a lot to know that we have so many people who care about us, many of whom we've never even met.

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there, but especially to [ profile] llnaughty. You blow me away with what a wonderful father you are. From the days when our first daughter was a baby, changing 99% of the diapers, holding her in the middle of the night while she screamed bloody murder, changing the sheets when she barfed all over them and us, letting me sleep in, me coming home from work to find you playing PS2 games, with her on your lap, to now, with our second daughter, still in the hospital, just sitting and holding her in the rocker. Our daughters are lucky to have such a wonderful man as their father.

I know it hasn't been easy, Bob is not easy, I'm not easy, Edgar has certainly not been easy. But you constantly step up and take care of us and love us, and make us laugh.

It's especially gratifying for me to see them have what I never had. I'm so thankful to know that they have a real Daddy, who loves them as much as I do, who makes them laugh, and who will always be there for them.

Happy Father's Day, Sweetie. And thank you for being in my and our daughters' lives. We're lucky to have you.

"Your butt and my butt caught in a vise-like grip of buttness."

So says [ profile] llnaughty. Why? I don't know. I just report the facts.

This morning I was lamenting that I had taken my money out of my pocket last night and left it on the cabinet. I looked in my wallet to see if I had any money, and lo and behold, the best husband in the world, who takes such good care of me and is so thoughtful and considerate, put my money in my wallet! Yay [ profile] llnaughty!

It's the little things. :)

Apparently, this wasn't mortifying enough for [ profile] llnaughty, because a couple of nights ago, he was hanging up clean laundry, and he picked up my long black velvet skirt and put it on, in front of Bob. Ever the instigator, I pointed to Dada and said in an overly inflected voice "What's DADDY wearing??? Is he wearing Mama's skirt???" She laughed and said "Yeah, Dada's wearing Mama's skirt. hee hee."

I was hoping for a repeat at school, but I haven't heard about anything yet. Maybe I'll have to remind her about it.
