at Yann and the fish sticks. That’s too funny. Did he eat them once they were ready? Marty’s classic for demanding something weird and then refusing to eat it once it’s ready.
for your DH’s interview Sabo
at Aili. Marty does the “Once upon a time…” thing all the time. I have no idea where he got that from. We don’t even have any books that start that way. He loves this stupid Clifford movie that’s on Netflix and he keeps going “Once upon a time there was Clifford.” Every time I put it on. Where do they get this stuff from?? Katie
I hope once Andrew comes home you’re able to get the break you need. Readjusting won’t be easy for him either. I wish we were closer geographically…I think we’d all be pitching in right about now so you could have some R&R of your own.
Yay for sleep but boo for eczema – I’m so sorry about that. It’s hard to see their skin flare up like that – it just looks painful. The hyperactivity is another lovely side effect. Marty does the same thing when he’s had too much food coloring, especially blue. Should be great today since we all know yellow and blue make green!! Grr.Nikki
Hello and congratulations!! IKWYM about the new DDC…I didn’t really click with mine either. It just isn’t the same as this one
When are you due?Michelle
for you and Lucy on the Montessori interview. I’m so glad it went well. It is bittersweet to see them so grown-up and independent, but it means you’re doing a good job
. That’s what I keep telling myself anyway Mommajb
I was planning on being in on the post cards. If I’m too late, that’s ok, I’m sure there will be a next time. If not too late, let me know and I’ll message you my address.
Having some major behavioral issues with DS and that’s resulting in some serious arguments with DH. He lectured me for about 30 minutes last night (and yes, I mean lecture – there was no back and forth, only me being “told”) about how I don’t discipline DS firmly enough. I went to pick him up at school and he took off across the playground and hid. It took 2 different teachers to get him out from where he was hiding and then I took TV away for the night which didn’t even seem to phase him. Last time he did this he was distraught over the TV, but this time he hardly even noticed
. DH’s big solution? “Jess, you just need to give him a whack to let him know you mean business. Grab him, make him come with you and then whack him when you get home.”
How is this ok?? How can he even be suggesting this? When I mentioned my temporary physical limitations right now he just looked at me like he couldn’t even believe I was “making excuses” and said “That’s only for another month, not forever.” No, it’s not forever. Forever I’ll have another child in tow and this is new behavior that needs to be taken care of now. Hitting is not an option. I refuse to do it. My poor baby boy. I don’t know what is going on or why he’s reacting so negatively toward me. Then this morning he didn’t want me to leave and they had to literally remove him from my body so I could go to work after 30 minutes of crying and “Mommy don’t leave!”
This just sucks.
