Shanti - I'm not sure I'll have any useful suggestions since I'm used to the US system, but here's a couple anyway.  I don't know anything about your insurance issues, but I practiced in a rural area where patients had to travel to access specialist care and appts were often months away, even if we could find someone to see a patient  1.  Is there a children's hospital in your province?  If so, consider taking him to the ER there.  Even the ER docs are usually more...
  sparkle - your house is adorable. Good luck for a quick sale!   Plady - your house is looking pretty great, too.   Shanti - hugs, mama   bec - So sorry about your beloved dog. Good for you for helping your kids say such a nice goodbye.   bbm - I'm kind of fascinated by the bee talk. Of course, having been stung a bunch in my life and being a large local reactor who swells terribly from stings, I'm enjoying being fascinated from afar!   NRR - I...
Happy birthday Kay!  What an adorable baby she was - and she's even more adorable now!  How'd the ear piercing go?  Caroline got hers done as an 8th birthday present, also.   tjsmama - I'm glad the new grad program is useful.  That's what you'd hope!  I hope that little tiny baby does well.   Real - I really am done pushing the jogger this year.  I gave it away when we moved.  Little dd is ok weight wise probably still (she only weighs about 55 lbs) but at 4'6",...
Plady - I want to echo what every one else has said.  I find being present with my children one of the hardest things about parenting - and even more so when I'm working.  One thing that has helped me is to try to find common interests that I enjoy with each child.  Also, I try to just not multi-task so much.  So that when one is speaking to me I make eye contact, not be reading, typing, or texting at the same time.  With 4 children, I feel like I'm often neglecting...
ND - ah, I'm waiting to hear advice for you that might help my crazy-eating kids too! And I don't think I've said congrats on dinglet #4! 4 is a good number. Jo - I've been reading and thinking of you lots, but did inpatient medicine last week and barely came up for air all week. I agree with everyone that your strength and patience is obvious, although I'm sorry it gets tried so much! Nic - I think of you often, mama. We're always here if you need to unload. UP...
So far behind here.  For those of you with race list requests, I have just now handed off the lists to a new keeper.  Give her a few days to figure it out!  I just can't keep it up any more - and I feel guilty for doing such a poor job recently.   kerc - several of my kids have flown unaccompanied on Southwest.  You have to book the flight, plus pay $50 extra each way.  The child has to fly with id (birth certificate generally) and you have to take them to the gate...
Shantimama - I did it already - I should have PM'd you too to let you know it was done.  Bbm did a few pairings too, including you.  Everyone should have received the name of their secret sprinter (sprintee?) now.  Bummer that dh can't step up some.  I agree with you that's not right.   RR - I'm on call this weekend, so made it a priority to get my long run in at the first available time.  There was no one in labor overnight, so I got up earlier and knocked my long...
BBm - if shanti is participating, why don't you send the list to me and I'll do the pairings?  I don't feel organized to participate this year, but I can do that part!   Zub - also crossing everything and sending you so many well wishes!  Grow, baby, grow.   Sparkle - meant to ask you before, are you sure you don't have pertussis?
Ok, back to try again.  Actually, life is good.  I am just trying to be more mindful about computer use at home and limit it as much as possible.  My kids are all busy, and they all still want to talk to me so I'm trying to be accessible and not buried in my laptop.  Plus, I want to spend time with my spouse, and accomplish some house projects, and run!  My big issue with mdc is it loads very slow, and crashes my browser a fair amount at home - especially when I try to...
I can't keep up here :(. I'm trying to be really mindful about my computer use at home, and I have limited time at work. I'm finally caught up with the thread, after forgetting it was February for a while!  My big issue is keeping up the race and results lists.  I can only update them from my home computer and I just don't get to it.  Does anyone want to take it over?   Wanted to respond to a bunch of stuff here but am out of time again - more later.
