Natal Stuff...

So yesterday we had our second "antenatal class"... or otherwise known as PREnatal classes :) Emily & I were at class early yesterday, so we took a pic of us inside the class... it's not a good pic, but you can see the mats and stuff we do our exercises on :) Emily & I are pretending to do breathing exercises ;) (well, Emily is - I"m just smiling...) :)The classes have been really fun :) There are about 10 couples in the class, so it's pretty fun! The first class was funny though because they spent the first 30 minutes telling us HOW we got pregnant - haha! I guess they don't teach that in the schools here... This last class was on labor, c-sections and all that stuff... it kinda freaked me out :) but it was fun :)

We DO have a washing machine - thank goodness (we spend a month in the mountains for language washing our own clothes and became very thankful for our washing machine)... It's a cute washing machine and it's in our kitchen... maybe I should blog about that one day....
.
ANYWAY... one thing we don't have is a dryer... they just don't make them here... I've heard rumors that there have been sightings of them down south of our country... but I've never seen one myself...
.
It's no big deal though... I'm not complaining... we have very dry heat over here, and things dry pretty fast... you can do a load in the evening and it's usually dry by morning (unless it's monsoon season).... or you can do it in the morning and it's dry by the afternoon :)
.
BUT... what do you do when you have a baby and TONS of little tiny clothes to dry??? Seriously, they have thought of everything... we had seen these before but never had any need to buy them... Until NOW... Check it out!
It's a little plastic hanging thingy with 36 clips on it! NICE!! We really don't have a good place to put it yet, but it works great!!

Wow...prenatal classes and enough stuff to make your hanger thingy look full... you guys are really getting things done! I have 2 hand-me-down toys and a crib...not so bad, but I DO have a clothes dryer-PTL! So whenever we actually get clothes... :)

I love your baby blogs...
And yes, you should blog about your washing machine in your kitchen...that's where mine is too!

Glad I wasn't the only one to notice the way cool glow worm!! Good eyesight Jellybean!! Andrea, you are looking awesome in that first pic! Seriously, stunning!! Are these classes like Lamaze? Fun stuff!!! When we took them in New Orleans when we were pregnant with Collin, it was in Mardi Gras season and the instructor always brought a king cake- what a random memory your post brought back!! Hope you are feeling as good as you are looking! Counting down the days till these baby blogs will have lots of pics of little jellybean!!

I don't have a dryer either. Sad. But it's usually super dry here and things dry quickly. I've always had one of the hanger system deals--even for socks, underwear, etc. But I had to get another one with 2 kids and cloth diapers!! I keep them full! I have a line on my yangtai for clothes drying, which is nice. I thought that I'd seen that glow worm on the Caskey blog!! I saw them at Toys R Us in HK recently...they're still popular! How awesome is that!

That looks so handy! We have a dryer here but it takes about 3 hours to do a small load. Love the pregnant photos...you don't hardly look pregnant though. You look great!

You are welcome Jellybean. I used to love to suck Glow Worm's face. I think I got that from Ledi. Its seen a lot of love.
