April 2012 Rockstar Mamas and Their Babies (better late than never) - Page 9

post #161 of 244
It is such an eye opener, hearing things you say come out of your kids' mouths. Sometimes in a good way, sometimes not. I think if your mother won't drive you crazy, status in Virginia. You can meet up with MM? for IRL friend stuff too.

Talk about tired! Yesterday we did the GCDC, met moms to swap stuff, drove an hour to my sisters where the fair was cancelled, watched fireworks, ate dairy queen, and drove home.

Today: went to the big Nosh, a local Jewish festival, the mall, met another mama to swap stuff, Walmart, now home. And all with just me and the kids. Though, I back wrap Norah everywhere now, and I hear so many great things: how awesome I am, how happy my kids are!, and it's enough to make you feel really good about your parenting. Until of course

My bad mommy moment of the day. I set Gabe in his carseat, but can't strap him in with Norah on my back, since we are too close to the next car. I strap Norah in, buckle up, and drive off. Then I see Gabe STANDING UP messing with the light. I was like " oh sh!t!!" and pulled over to strap him in. OMG! Bad mommy!

I cried a lot, which I hardly ever do, and just felt like I could not do all of this on my own again. My mom actually seems excited about the idea. She's been trying to talk me into not even bothering to go back home for a bit. The only two things that are keeping me from committing are having to drive home and then back up here by myself (the drive up here was pretty horrible) and leaving Ryan alone in our house for 2 months.
Carrie ~ I think it depends a lot on what you mean by GD. That can encompass so much. It really depends on what you are doing and why? I'm sure you know where I fall on the GD spectrum. I believe that most kids will eventually learn whatever they need to know with time and maturity as long as they are provided with guidance and modeling. I don't think that any form of punishment or coercion is necessary. It's hard to get to that point, though. I've been working on it for years and am still not completely there in my daily practice.
Modeling is my biggest problem. Ethan has taken to calling people idiots. I realized he does that because he hears me say it. He is horrible in the car, just complaining about everything and so dramatic about it. He blames me and tells me I lied if things don't go exactly how I told him that I expect. I've been wondering what has made him so fussy. I'm embarrassed to say that I think he probably learned it from listening to me fuss at Sean. I had one of those, "Ah ha!" moments when he said something that was word-for-word exactly what I say to Sean. duh.gif I've decided that if I want Ethan to be nicer to the rest of us, I need to really start being nicer to Sean.

 

I guess I know that - I know eventually she will "get it" if it's going to be something worth getting.  But in the meantime I need to work on not losing my shit when I'm pushed to my limit.  The other day i found a great list of things to do instead of yelling or hitting your child and I printed it out and put it where I'll see it.  I don't hit, but I do yell.  LOUD.  And it's stupid b/c it doesn't work, it makes me feel horrible, and Nora often cries and says something like, "...inside voice, mommy!" which makes me feel like a million bucks, you know?  And i mean, how scared must she be?  To say something like that?  You know?  Ugh.

 

I get the most out of control when it comes to hitting/keeping hands to yourself.  I think that's my one big hurdle to overcome.  I know what to do and what to say, but then she punches me or hits me, or hits the baby, and it's all out the window. I need to try harder.  I have trouble even admitting this to you all b/c I so admire your parenting and feel bad that I'm not "as good" as you all!  

 

I'm such a work in progress. I wonder at times if I'll ever BE the parent I want to be, or if I need to accept who I am now and just keep at it.  And not be so hard on myself.

 

 

I have to admit I LOLed at what you said about Ethan.  Just in an "I know what you mean" sort of way.  Ohhh we do need to watch our  mouths around these kids, don't we?  

How do you feel about having to be nicer to Sean?  winky.gif

I did that coming home from school the other day -- tho Nora caught it in time!  I opened Finns door, and she climbed inside across both seats, which she never really does, I always go around and let her in.  Anyway, I buckled Finn and then got in the car, and started to back up and she goes, "WAIT!  MY BUCKLES!!"  I literally was like, "No way?!  I forgot your buckles?!"  I totally didn't realize I'd forgotten.

 

Once when she was YOUNG... probably Gabe's age..I did the same thing.  I drove off, looked in my mirror and said, "Nora, get back in your seat!"  Wait...get back in your seat!?  I pulled over into a parkiing lot and buckled her in!  OMG I was horrified at myself.  It took a few min to get my composure!

 

No sleep last night.  Baby Finn has forgotten how to sleep!  Ugh!  The coffee will be necessary today!  Going to get the kids fed and hydrated and then I think head out for a puddle walk.

 

Oh, my BIL and MIL came by to babysit last night so Chris and I could go see a movie.  I felt so rushed!  My gosh, we barely got out of the movie and grabbed tacos to go and headed back.  It was great to get out but I seriously feel like DH and I got no time to actually chat or be together.  But, all said, great great movie (we saw Hunger Games) and wonderful to get out of the house and not worry about the children for a few hours.  I don't know when the next time will be, so I'm going to relish in it!

 

post #163 of 244

I am so glad I am not the only one. I was like, this is BAD. Not as bad as forgetting your kids are in the car, but BAD.

 

You need them to come over while you and DH have dinner or something where you can walk and talk and stuff. Though I know the kids enjoyed it, they love their uncle (and Grandma!!)

 

So, Potty Training. I put him in training pants (cloth ones) around 8 or 9 this morning. He stayed dry until nearly 12. I don't know that I can really call it an "accident", because he wasn't even very wet, I think he just couldn't hold it anymore. He did sit, fully clothed, on the potty, once. So, it's a start! I put him back in a diaper for naptime, and once he wakes up, I will put him back in a trainer. So goes Day 1. I think he "gets" it though - he knows he's not supposed to pee in the trainer (otherwise he wouldn't have gone so long dry). and I did catch him holding himself when he needed to go, but by the time we got to the bathroom, he changed his mind and stayed dry another 1/2 hour or more. And we learned that he CAN pull his pants and trainer up and down.

 

So, really, I guess it's not bad for our first morning really trying.

Don't be so hard on yourself. The fact that you recognize and admit that yelling isn't the best thing to do and care enough to try to not do it (so much) is a big thing. I don't believe that anyone never loses it. If they tell you that, they are lying. winky.gif There is never really an endpoint with parenting. It's always a work in progress.

I yell sometimes, too, mostly at Kellen. greensad.gif Sometimes he just gets so out of control and won't listen to anything I say and I scream at him. Like today while we were driving in the car he asked me about slingshotting something. We'd already had a talk with him about throwing things in the car because he threw a water bottle that hit me while I was driving. So, while I'll telling him again that throwing things in the car is absolutely never ok and trying to get him to get that he needs to stop and think about things, he throws a crayon! I didn't yell at him that time because I was actually so mad that I couldn't talk but that's the type of thing that I might lose it over.

I can be nicer to Sean. We actually had a pretty good time together this weekend. I tried really hard not to make snide remarks to him. He was sweeter and helpful.

I left Ethan unbuckled once. I got a little ways down the road and he told me he wasn't buckled.

Now that I'm home and feeling better I don't know if I'll go to my mom's. The nice thing about going there is that I can always come home if we fight too much. I'm still not sure what to do.
post #165 of 244

I haven't left T unbuckled yet, but we were out shopping the other day, and went to put her back into her seat (ie she had already been in it that day), and it moved. Like... 6 inches. Apparently the day before when DH put my niece's seat in the car, it loosened the latch strap on ours, so the one side was practically not even attached to the car. Oops!!

 

Speaking of, did I tell you guys about that? I know I wrote about it on my fb parenting group, but don't remember if I posted here.  So DH drove my 3.5 year old, 40lb niece the other day to preschool in the morning. He showed up at the house, and they handed him her seat-- a backless booster. That's it. In my province, it is law that you must have children under 5 years and under 50lbs in an approved child restraint and they're in the process of joining other provinces in moving that up to 8 years and 80lbs I think. She is way too little and babyish still to be in a booster at all, let alone a backless one. I mean really, she's small enough that she could have rear faced in Tenley's seat until just very recently- and could forward face in it for another 2 years probably. The thought of her being in this completely detached from the vehicle, non belt positioning booster is just... I shake my head at it. I mean WHY? Why wouldn't you want to keep your child in a safer seat. And she had one! I'm pretty sure the seat she had before was a combo FF and belt positioning booster. So... why?   Argh. Anyways, I told DH to refuse to take her next time unless he put her in Tenley's seat. He offered, and was told no, she was fine in the one she had. But really, how would he ever forgive himself if something happened to her, and he KNEW she shouldn't have been in the seat they provided, but went with it anyways?  sigh. I just don't get people. 

post #166 of 244

Omg, I so agree with you!  Someone I know has a 3.5 year old, who is big for his age, granted, he's just over 50 lbs, and tall... but he's in a backless booster, too.  The same thing you're describing.  She says she couldn't/can't afford a new seat, and he's "too big" for most out there that aren't $300 so...for $40 at walmart you get a backless booster.  I cringe though.  But what can I do?  

 

Thanks, Alysia, for your kind words.  I'm so hard on myself.  I think I'm just in a funk lately in many ways and trying to handle all these other big emotions I have going on.  So thanks.

 

Kat, how did day 1 go??  

 

 

 

post #167 of 244

Oh, and yes, Don't be too hard on yourself!  I'm beginning to think that the patience part of parenting is 50% for the kids, and 50% for us. It would be easier just to not care about your parenting, and just scream and yell and take that as normal. When you have high expectations of yourself (which we do, and should!), it's hard to remember to be gentle with yourself as well. We're learning and growing, just as they are.

I think some parents are just lazy with the child car seats. I've seen plenty who don't bother to put their kids belted in any seat at all. A backless booster is a lot easier to move from one vehicle to another. It's hard for me to believe cost is the issue. I bought Ethan a highback booster a few months ago (he's 8yo old). It only cost me maybe $60 at Wal-Mart. A very popular, highly recommended one, the Graco Highback Turbo, I think.

Dylan got another tooth! This teething has got to be over soon, right? Only one more for the front 8.
post #169 of 244

Parenting stuff is uber hard! Some days are good, some days are bad. I think one of the best things you can do as a parent if you lose your cool is to be up front with your kid. After you've cooled down, a simple "Hey, I'm sorry that I yelled at you. I was very frustrated but that's not o.k. I'm going to work really hard at not doing that again." I think that's the best behavior to model to a kid. Parents aren't perfect. We're going to make mistakes. But if we can show our kids how to respond after you make a mistake, I think that's worth a ton.

 

I have no patience for carseat stuff. There's SO much information out there about what's currently recommended, especially if you do well-baby/well-child visits. There's always a poster at my doctor's office about acceptable tolerance for carseats and booster seats. But people have some perverse desire to graduate their kids to the next thing, like it's an example of how "advanced" their kid is. So silly. It's not safe. Period.

 

DD ate so much solid food on Friday and Saturday that now she super constipated. Like screaming in pain while she's straining constipated. greensad.gif I feel so bad for her! I'm texting DH right now trying to convince him to use the suppository that he picked up tonight before I get home from work. I don't know if he's brave enough to do it.
 

post #170 of 244
Finn is backed up again to. Im not sure what im giving him that's causing it. :-( today I made sure to feed him some prunes, and I'm going to offer prunes more regularly until I can figure it out. We haven't had bananas in awhile...maybe just too many of those puffs or Cheerios?? He's straining to go, as well.
Hopefully the suppository helps Ava. Poor babies.

Finn's teething something awful, too. Drooly hot mess! I'm eager to see which tooth is coming next!

baby on arm...

 

YES!

YES!

and   oh no! :(  poor girl.

 

MW-- I think that's exactly it for them-- the mom doesn't drive, so the daughter is often in other people's vehicles, and I think it was probably a matter of the backless booster being easier to move. so sad. Tenley's seat fits to 65lbs, and she will be in it until either she outgrows it, or we have another baby, in which case, we'll buy her a new seat at that time. That means she could be in this seat until she's SIX potentially. In a five point harness. The only way she'll be out of it earlier is if she outgrows the height, and then, we'll go with a nautilus probably. And my niece who is 3.5 and 40lbs, is in a glorified phone book! I just... yeah. No excuses.

Carseats - you can get a Cosco Scenera at Walmart (which is a convertible, and actually gets decent safety ratings) for about $50. Less if you watch sales. It's what my mom has in her car, it was Gabe's and now it's Norah's. Gabe now sits in whatever the Cosco high back booster is. Both are easy to install, with either seat belt or LATCH, depending on what you have.  If I would be toting around an extra kid on a regular basis, I would shell out and get one just to have on hand. So if mom showed up with the "glorified phone book" (love it!) you could say, we're good! got it covered!

 

Now, I will admit, I want to be safe, but I am also cheap. I am NOT spending $300 on a carseat. $150 is my absolute max. If you watch sales and clearance aisles (and the discount sites like zulily, etc) you can find great carseats at a reasonable price. Honestly, I take the kids in the BRU or BBB and see which seat they seem happiest in, and is within my price range. Norah is in Grago MyRide 65. A friend upgraded her seats and sold it to me for $50. Now, normally I would not buy used, but I I know this friend rather well (she was my doula with Norah) and trust her to sell me something not recalled or expired, or been in a crash. I just need to get another seat for DH's car now . .. . or put this in DH's car and get me a something else.

 

Poor constipated babies! hope they feel better!

 

Potty training D1 went ok . . . I mean, as well as can be expected. He did sit on the froggy potty. Once even without undies! no pee or poop in it. But it's only Day 1. Hoping on Day 2 we can do slightly better. I was going to do a timed thing, but he has such long dry spells it seemed ridiculous, so now I am just watching him for cues, it seems more natural.

 

Yay Finn on teeth! Norah's can wait. LOL

post #173 of 244

I'm waiting for a Britax sale!  I want a Marathon 70 for Finn but they are super pricey ($230-$250) and I thought I saw one in a pretty sagey green that I can't find anymore.  But.  Nonetheless, if I can get it cheaper I want it cheaper!  I hear you on that, Kat! 

 

Ugh, my coffee is brewing.  DH is playing with Finn for the moment so I can have a minute.  He was up from 4-6 tossing and turning (Finn, not DH) b/c he couldn't breathe thru his nose!  I did everytihng - saline, nose frida, propped him up, sat up and nursed, humidifier, everything.  Nothing helped.  He just had to figure out how to settle and breathe thru his mouth.  My throat is super sore so maybe the air was just to dry.  And then he was up for the day at 730!   UGH!!

 

Re:potty - waiting for natural cues makes so much more sense to me than a timer.  Tho - a timer can help a busy mama who can't keep both eyes on one child the whole time.  I think with Finn I'll use both when it's time.  With DD I just kept on her for telling me when she had to go.  How verbal is Gabe?  What signals is he giving you?

 

 

post #174 of 244

Um, so far, the typical boy grabbing at his crotch and crossing his legs LOL  He says Poop really well (ex post facto of course) and "eee" when I pee. so, that's something.

 

You need to sign up for Zulily - they had britax on yesterday and sold out really fast. Marathon 70 (black one and a red one) were $189.00.  I mean, I know the $300 car seats are nice and fantastic, and if everyone could, they would have one. But I also have to believe there are perfectly safe, good options at the lower end of the price spectrum. I might have to adjust harness hight manually, but that is not a big deal to me. I do want cupholders . . . but it's hard finding them in a seat I like - I love the integrated ones, not the clip on the side ones.

 

More coffee may be needed today.

post #175 of 244

We've got a myride 65, and so does Lauri. I love it to pieces. And yes- the cupholders! lolOne of the mamas in my parenting group is a carseat tech, and she always recommends the myride or the Nautilus. But yes- Britax if you can do that. I couldn't make the jump for the added price- I just didn't see enough ectra features. That said-- I think it's more expensive up here compared to other seats, compared to down there, so that makes a difference. 

 

Kat-- I'm pretty sure that cosco seat is that one they had her in. Don't understand why they would have switched. 

 

All this talk about potty training has me anxious to start a bit of EC with Ten again. We were doing some of it, but got lazy. I want to start again, at least part time. 

 

Ten slept whole night in her crib last night! Went into it just after 10, I went in and comforted her once at about 1030, and then she slept until 2am, nursed and cuddled, then again at 5 something, nursed and cuddled, and then awake at 7am, and we brought her into bed for cuddles, but she never fell back asleep. Oh, it was glorious. In contrast, when I bring her into bed, she sleeps normally in the crib from 10 til 1, then is up at 230, and 4, and 5, and 6, and then 7, and up every 15 minutes from then until I decide to get out of bed. Even if it's just a night, I needed that!

 

 

post #176 of 244

I'm on zulilly!  WTF!  I just need to check it -- man that's a good price!  I always  miss deals b/c I never check those sites!

 

I don't think that the lower end ones are unsafe, persay, but I do think the higher up ones have more features, maybe higher weight limits, integrated cupholders, fancy upholstery.  You know?  Maybe they are more comfortable or easier to install.  But safer?  No.  You have to pick one that fits your car, your child, your budget, your style -- sometimes that's a pricey one, sometimes not.    The Car Seat Lady says, 'The safest, best car seat is the one that will fit securely in your vehicle, that fits your child's age, height, and weight, that you can operate correctly every time, and that fits your budget.  Looking at safety ratings is not enough--if the seat rated "safest" doesn't fit securely in your vehicle, or if you can't figure out how to operate it, it is NOT the best seat for YOU."

 

(http://www.thecarseatlady.com/choosing_a_car_seat/choosing_a_car_seat.html)

 

Hey, Poop and EEE are enough to convey a message, before or after the fact!  Once he realizes the connection, he'll get better at telling you.  For awhile it'll probably be as he's doing it, but then it'll be before (like a half second!) and then it'll be well before.  Oooohhh potty training is such fun!  dizzy.gif

 

Nora is finally at a stage where she can say, "Hey I need to go," and we're able to find a bathroom soon, and she can hold it til we find one.  I'm happy with that!  She also can pretty much take herself, so I don't have to even wipe her anymore.  Sometimes she wants help with #2 but that's fine with me!

Carseats: I have two Britax Boulevards (old style from 2008, I think) and a Britax Frontier Booster. I paid for one Boulevard on sale from Albeebaby.com. They seem to have lower prices than other places a lot of times. I also got that GoPod thing from there for less and in the color I wanted. Anyway, the 2nd Boulevard and the Frontier were paid for by my insurance company after Ryan wrecked my Subaru with the other seats in it. There's no way I could have afforded all of them. I hate that stores don't carry the Boulevard for comparison with the Marathon and other brands.

I love my Boulevards (except for older kids who could really use cup holders). Kellen still rides in his in Sean's Jeep. He's almost 5 and weighs about 35 lbs. (maybe). Both my boys, who are small and short, grow out of the seats in length long before weight. Weight-wise, Ethan could still ride in the Boulevard since he's only 48-50 lbs., but his hip to shoulder height is too long to fit safely. Kellen rides in the Frontier with the 5-point harness in my van.

That's one nice thing about the Boulevards, the height and weight limits are higher than most other seats, or they were when I bought them. There are a few that are starting to catch up. I think the big extra safety thing with the Britax is their side impact protection. Supposedly, it's been tested and found to be very safe whereas other brands may have side impact safety but it hasn't been tested. However, I also think it's only been tested by the manufacturers, not by any independent entity. All other child safety seats on the market have to meet the same minimum safety requirements so they are all safe enough, I guess (Although, the government is notorious for not always keeping up with what's safest, just bare minimums. KWIM?)

The other major safety thing with the Britax is it's easy installation compared with other brands. I don't find installing a child safety seat easy at all with either the LATCH system or the seatbelt. The Britax ones are the easiest I have used but they still aren't easy, especially when compared to a booster that doesn't have to be attached to the car at all. Having to remove a seat to adjust the harness height is major PITA to me. I love that the Boulevards can be adjusted without unlatching them. I hate that I can't do that with the Frontier (which I would not recommend).

Ethan rode in the Frontier booster with the 5-point harness until last fall. He was almost 8yo. I had a lot of angst about letting him use just the seatbelt. But, I looked and asked around on the Safety board here and got some info that maybe once a child is a certain size a properly positioned seatbelt is just as safe or safer than a 5-point harness. He still needs the highback seatbelt shoulder guide for the car seatbelt to fit him, though. It's hard for me to imagine that the seatbelt would fit a 3yo properly without that shoulder guide.

I can't remember the minimum requirements for a booster but I'm pretty sure Kellen meets them. I'm guessing the 3yo meets those minimum weight requirements, too. I see plenty of 2yos in boosters. That's not necessarily what is safest, as you all have said, and I don't get why someone wouldn't do what was safest. Maybe they just don't understand and assume that the minimum requirements are the safest. shrug.gif

I feel like I'm all over the place with this post. I've been interrupted so many times that I can't keep my train of thought or remember if there was anything else I wanted to say. Oh well.
post #178 of 244

Don't worry, it all made sense!

 

And I totally get what you guys mean about ease. I love the myride, but it's not terribly easy to adjust as she grows, and we have to take it out to change the height of the shoulder straps. I didn't get why the peg perego we were borrowing was so expensive- and then I started to use the Graco and realized how easy it made the Peg perego seem. The Peg has the easiest latch points ever (push button, which I think is the same in the britax), and the height adjustment too, it's just a push and slide button.  I get now why someone would pay the extra money for that. Does it make it safer? Like Carrie said- it depends on the parents and how they're using it. If it being easier to change size, means that you're keeping the settings more accurate than you would if you had to take the seat out, then yes, it's 'safer', but that's not universal, obviously. 

post #179 of 244

Rethreading the harness height is really not that bad, and I don't have to do it often, and when I do, it's an excuse to clean under and vacuum the car seats. That's why, for me, not a big deal. Now, our infant/bucket seat, is no-thread and it's great, because little babies grow the fastest.  Once we moved to a convertible, I might move them every 6 months or so.

 

I don't know if Wayne will continue on the potty training thing while I am at work tomorrow, we'll see. But I think Thursday we will do some naked time. Friday we are having a playdate with a bunch of people at the house and I think I wil do diapers that day (just for one less chaotic thing).  You know what's so not comforting? none of the grandparents really know anything about potty training, because they sent us to our grandparents for it. BOO.

Yeah, that's the thing. We moved T into this seat at... 3 months? So in the past two months, I think we've already moved it twice. It'll slow down though, I know. And like you said- it's not a huge deal, but I do get the draw of having one that you just press the button.
