It only annoys me when I'm trying to do stuff... Especially cook. Otherwise I'd do it all day. I practically do anyways when DH isn't here because he can't give me Hell for it. smile.gif
Mr. Independent was sooo cute tonight. I almost died. He was ready for bed at like 7 so Iasked him if he wanted to cuddle. We spooned on the couch watching Judge Judy for a solid thirty minutes before I gave in and let him go to bed. <3

I'm totally entering! I have my entry written out, just have to do the picture. Hmmmm... Creative ideas??

I'm jealous that your kid will watch TV and mine won't. Is that awful? None of my kids care about TV unless is frigid outside. It sure would make showering easier.

It's a rare thing and was only because he was super tired, haha.
I would consider it a good thing your kids don't want to be droned by it!!!

Nicole is right, Ash. You wouldn't want B to end up like Sora... She asks for Dora and Blue's Clues all the time. Kid is obsessed. Thanks, DH! eyesroll.gif Oh well, we still keep a balance between TV time and other/outside play...

 

Did I mention Sora knows how to get to our Netflix app and watch her tv shows herself on our phones? Oy.

 

But I totally see the benefit to having a kid able to watch TV for a little bit while you get something done! I'm not ashamed of it.

Ash, Avery won't sit and watch TV either.  The olders will, that's for sure, but not Avery yet.  He will, however, watch one of his older siblings play computer games.  So when I need to make dinner or take a shower, I set Austin and Avery up on the computer with Starfall.com and they'll sit there together for like 20 minutes!

Great entry, and what a beautiful picture in your entry Kali! Love it! :):)

post #149 of 659
Awesome entry!!!
post #150 of 659

Kali, that picture is amazing!!  Great job!  I voted for you!  How are you feeling these days?  Any less nausea?

 

So, omg, you guys... last night Avalon was showing us a loose tooth and we discovered something rather disturbing.  Her adult incisors are half way grown in BEHIND her baby teeth.  She looks like a shark.  It freaked me out, seriously.  I looked it up and apparently it's pretty common, but the baby teeth need to come out ASAP and only one is what I would consider fairly loose.  The other one is just a little loose.  I read that sometimes the adult teeth don't dissolve the baby tooth root enough to push the teeth out because they're already growing in behind the teeth.  She's have to get them both pulled!  How sad is it to lose your first 2 teeth by having them pulled?  Plus, not fun to have teeth pulled.  She loves the dentist and I'd hate to have this ruin it for her.  ARGH.  Anyone else every have this issue?

post #151 of 659
Thanks, everyone!

Jaime, I have heard of that, although my kids aren't o.d enough yet . Call your kids dentist just in case.
post #152 of 659

Yeah, our stupid dentist is closed on Fridays.  I left a message to page someone, but haven't heard back yet.  I found a thread on this over in the childhood forum and sounds like there's a chance the teeth will fall out in time since they are both at least a little loose.  But we can't let it go too long or the adult teeth may not get into place.  Though I also read that since the tongue rests against the bottom teeth it will help to push them into place once the baby teeth are gone.  FX.

post #153 of 659

That happened to me with both of my top front teeth and one bottom incisor.  I remember losing one top tooth and having the others pulled.  The only tooth that had a problem is one of my front teeth that sits back just a tiny bit farther than the rest-  its not noticeable to anybody but me, but it throws off my bite. 

 

And Jaimee...I know to you it seems like a really big deal right now, because you just saw it and now you know its there, but I promise that it will be no different monday than it is today thumb.gif  Since its not an emergency or injury, is there a chance the dentist service wont call back?

post #154 of 659

Actually both dentists called me that work for the practice!  He was unconcerned, totally common, and since the teeth are wiggling, he would like to wait and see if they fall out on their own.  He says that when the teeth do this it is for a reason and that reason most typically is b/c there wasn't enough room and that means she will be predisposed for orthodontia anyway so there is no real worry about how the adult teeth will move into place.  Honestly, if all her bottom teeth do this, it would correct her underbite and that might be a good thing!  So we'll work on wiggling and if they don't fall out relatively soon we will have them looked at and possibly pulled.  Think wiggly thoughts!  orngbiggrin.gif

*Thinking wiggly thoughts*

Conner slept like absolute dog doodoo last night. DH was up with him every hour, then I got up with him at 545! We spooned on the couch and he fell back asleep in my arms. I put him back to bed at 730 and he slept until 11. I can die happy now. He hasn't slept with me in over a year!!!

This dog... weighs... 237 pounds!!!
post #157 of 659

Wow, that is a HUGE dog!

 

On a side note - I had the crappiest day yesterday!  My husband is building us a new computer (he is really good at it, he has put together his own computers over the last 10 years)... it has taken a year and a half to get all the pieces since we had to save for them.  But this computer is so cursed!  So much has gone wrong, just weird stuff!  Yesterday I spent 2.5 HOURS on the phone with our service provider,  only to NOT have the problem fixed.  I was alone at home, Eli was running a low grade fever and was super miserable - he managed to toss 10 toys over the balcony and into the garden downstairs, while I had my back turned to unplug things while on the phone - I only managed to see it out of the side of my eye at the last minute ... he cried a lot while I was on the phone, and unpacked EVERYTHING ... it was terrible. I even cooked dinner for Eli while on the phone because he was hungry. After the issue not being fixed, I called my DH who was at work.  I cried :(  I was so upset because it was such a wasted effort, and I felt bad for not being able to tend to Eli.  I called the maker of our modem (Netgear), because that was the next logical step - only to be completely gobsmacked!  In order to help me, I would have to PAY $130 for a technical Support warranty!  They weren't going to help me without it.  Seriously ... I could NOT believe it ... I said no way I was going to pay that!  You would think they would offer technical support for free.  Anyhow, we gave up ... my DH installed the rest of the stuff onto the computer and we just left the Internet.  This morning I get here, fooled around on the router login site that you can access offline and then suddenly it blinked green and it was FIXED>  Holy moly ...  

 

Now on to enjoy our day ... my dh has the next two days off and we were hoping to see the Iron Man 3 movie today... thinking happy thoughts... after all the lovely warm weather today is cloudy - but it doesn't matter :):):)

Does anyone have advice for getting Levi to use a sippy cup or a straw cup? I want to start weaning him off a little more (down to 5 or 6 sessions a day and a few times in the night) but he has no nursing manners and I'm getting really touched out halfway through the day and he demands having both breasts out and demands twiddling the other while nursing. I HATE it! It's like nails on a chalkboard and I feel assaulted half the time because I dread nursing anymore. I need help!

B tried this, and it drove me CRAZY.  She still does it once in a while, and I totally understand the feeling your describing.  Like, I would have the sudden urge to throw her off of me.  Just do NOT tolerate it-  there is no way around it.  Its a fight, but you have to hold on to those nursing manners or nursing becomes something that is not mutually desirable anymore.  Im not much for telling babies/toddlers no when there are other options, but I will give her a firm "NO" until she stops trying.

post #160 of 659
My first had horrible nursing manners, because the other option was hours of meltdowns if nursing was messed with - but I did not tolerate twiddling. Ever ever.

So with O I have been much firmer on what is and isn't acceptable when nursing. Scratching, pinching, kicking and excessive acrobatics get one gentle request and then if repeated, off the boob. Biting,twiddling and painful acrobatics are an automatic off. No warnings. Zero-tolerance. Popping off more than once gets a "oh, looks like you're all done." And I put it away. If he is still protesting after a moderate amount of distraction then he can get back on, no problem.

He's generally a very considerate, calm nurser.
