Flavorful- glad your getting settled in, I'll be up to visit soon and we can hang out, as much as I was hoping to talk Hubs into moving there, after he moved my mom up and it was over 100 degrees I can be assured now it will never happen. As for sleeping with loud kids, like Jenny we are a loud family, she minded at first but has already become accustomed to it.
Rosie- glad you hit your stride. I'm sorry about daycare, that was really hard for me the first time.
Chiro- sucks about the period.
Jenny- let us know for sure.
lala- people always ask me that too, I am always confused by and get the same sort of looks when I describe her sleep.
Nic- so sorry to hear you got laid off, it sure does always seem to happen in torrents too. Glad you have a plan, amazing how a plan can make you feel so much more peaceful about a situation, and totally yeah on not having to pump anymore.
saudade- hooray for nice weight gain. Did the package get there? I have some friends who have used domperidine pretty successfully.
adore- the vaccine issue is so much fun isn't it? My friends son just came down with a mild case of pertussis, at first I was just thinking about my unvaccinated kids who were at her house (not Cora) while he was puking, but then I got to thinking---he's vaccinated! Heck of a lot of good that did, so i decided I was glad my kids didn't get all the chemicals and nasty stuff since it doesn't really seem to work anyway. Now I am watching my kids though. Cora is a bit snotty and coughed a couple times like the snot was stopping her breathing back in her throat. cross your fingers. We had a super shitty Dr in the past and I am thankful for my pretty understanding doc now.
Arbybee- sorry about the daycare situation, we had a hell of a time finding one after my first
jessimaca- sorry about the tough time nursing, crossing my fingers it gets figured out, but yeah on getting to stay home a bit longer.
AFM-Hubs still working out of town, and last weekend (when he was moving my mom to NC) I had a bit of a cry fest on the phone with him...and on the phone with 2 of my sisters. Parenting solo just kind of sucks, and then on the weekends he comes back to town and works some more and it annoys me. The house is so beyond wrecked I don't even want to invite other people over. I was working on catching up the laundry which started the houses downfall and then started sewing some diaper covers that i could sell in the hopes of bringing in some extra money, which in my dreams gets used to buy crafty stuff and a serger but in reality will go for things we need, like new shoes for Hubs and maybe even a splurge like something fun for the kids...and maybe a bit of fabric. I did tell Hubs I'll have to go buy some elastic and thread. I think I want to do Joann's without the big kids. I feel like 4 kids isn't too hard but that the big kids have been watching too much tv....mostly b/c I have been watching too much tv as I became obsessed with battlestar galactica and I really wanted to see what would happened, I have not yet finished but am at that point where I am sort of sick of watching tv, it was just TOO MUCH TV and I would have been fine with a conclusion a bit sooner
