Hi ladies! I've been wavering back and forth on whether or not, I wanted to join this DDC. My life is hectic between work, DH, my very spirited 11 mo DS, and all my responsibiliites as a sister/SIL, and daughter/DIL. BUT I had such a great time in my last DDC and get so much support still, that I had to join in. I'm 26, my DH is 30, and our DS will be one in 16 days (ahhhhh!!). I'm due April 24, which is a day before my nephew's birthday. My DS was born on FIL's...
Hi there! Can I join in? I don't have a lot of time now (I'm at work and should be working) but I just had post quickly. My DS is not quite 1 and he is DEFINITELY a spirited child. The book was recommended to me before DS was even born so I read it then. DH is a spirited guy and needed some coping mechanisms so I read it to help him. Well, lo and behold, DS is just like his father. They are exhausting! Like I said, DS is not quite 1 and already we are getting...
Happy birthday to the kids! I can't believe we're here. Remember when we were on labor watch and daydreaming about meeting our LO's? Time has flown by! 2bozy, I'm glad you're starting to feel better. Lake is still getting 2 naps a day. He used to flop back and forth but now he is definitely getting 2. They are later in the day though so his bedtime is horrendous. I hate putting that kid to bed. DH and I take turns, thankfully. That is amazing that Viv has...
I think Lake is working on 1 year molars as well! And he just learned how to walk in shoes too! He just stood in them for a long time balancing. It was cute to see! That is fantastic about your new jobs! I'm so happy for you. I definitely want to see your new office when it's done.
s sugarpop, i know exactly what you mean. It is a hard feeling to describe. You know you should be happy but you don't actually feel that way. I'm sorry that you're dealing with this but you're not alone. Do you have a PCP/OB/midwife who you trust? Start there. And the suggestions Dmitrizmom gave are great! Those are things you do can right away. I started with those and they really helped me get out of the funk enough to recognize how badly I was feeling. ...
This is a little strange being in this forum. It's exciting too! Jennifer, I'm so sorry about the loss of your friends' baby. That makes my heart hurt just thinking about it. As far as sleeping goes, we are attempting to implement a bedtime for Lake this week. He gets tired around 8:30 but plays relentlessly until DH and I go to bed. I think it's time for me to structure things a little bit more though, for his sake and ours. I'm also starting to worry about...
Quote: at times when you make shifts internally. Perhaps some amount of self-realization, or the tipping point when you're on a journey of change...a place where you reach a fork in the road and set out on a different path. That really struck a nerve with me. I did come to a fork in the road last year. It was a turning point in my relationship with DH (then boyfriend, of 1 rocky year) and also with my older sister. I chose to have a kid with a guy...
Thanks for your responses. Annie Mac, I agree that it's time to make new friends but I've found it difficult for numerous reasons (that I won't mention b/c I don't want to sound like I'm making excuses). I think the biggest thing is that I DO need alone time to recharge. Socialising is sometimes more work for me than release and with everything demanded of me, I'm not in a good enough place to be charming and fun. As for the type of friends I have... I've got...
ein and texmati, how are you managing being pregnant and taking care of your LOs? I am wondering how I'll manage. Lake is very.... hands-on for lack of a better word. He loves to be held and thrown around. He loves to wrestle and shove his little toes in our bellies. I am just nervous about him being too rough with me and not understanding why I can't play like I normally do.
yes, I am also in that club! Except Lake does not cry, he yells! It is frustrating for all of us!
