Joanie, vent away anytime! I know I do! We are always here for you. I'm frustrated with my dh 90% of the time right now, so I get it. Hugs.

She's running into things and falling on the floor repeatedly cuz she's so gimpy. She isn't crying anymore. I'm just hoping it's not a sprain because how would I know?! And those are the worst to heal.

Happy news! My nephew was just born! Yay!!!!
post #983 of 1502
Um... Hmmm. If you move it around, does she cry?

Amanda, they're cute. Love all the glasses.

 

Joanie, did she walk it off? I'm grateful every day that my children aren't like I was as a kid.They have never jumped off so much as a first story roof. I have no advice, I'm a huge roughhouser. Shay has tumbled off a big trampoline before, and I try to impress upon him which situations require safety.

 

My kids made a rope swing in the yard today.And apparently licked a 9 volt while I laid the babies down.

Joanie, is there any swelling? Any tender spots? 

post #986 of 1502

Yes, by that definition, 2 of my 3 kids are gimpy.  At my house, someone is nearly always hurt and don't even bring up C..  He SCREAMS every time he gets the smallest bump, we don't even bother to run to his aid anymore.   DD1 is my only kid with any coordination, but she is as lazy as can be,  We always joke that she has 'princess legs' because she can hardly walk 1 block unless she's motivated to go somewhere.  I will often push her in the stroller and Coralie will walk, because she always wants to walk (although she falls a lot).  

 

If her arm is sprained it will likely get swollen or be tender for a while.  It's probably okay though, kids are resilient.

Sara, did you notice my older dd's hipster glasses? Lol. She just got those.

Yup, that sounds about right to me.

My kids made a fort that involved the fireplace. Like, inside the fireplace. They got to it by removing the long chaise lounge cushion and making it like a slide from the top of the recliner, nearly straight into the fireplace.

We are big rough housers too. Joanie I hope my post wasn't what made you delete yours? We all have different levels of comfort.

Your kids are beasts, too. My kids put Shay in a sling and swung him in a 20 foot arc while spinning. He couldn't even walk into the house he was so dizzy.

I did notice them. She must have very light lenses.

If no one's husband will be there, I'm going to leave mine home, too. And would any of us want to go spend a weekend with our SO's online friends? I'm going to go with no here. My gal is out gaming tonight.
post #991 of 1502
Yes definitely beasts.

Joanie did your sisters birth go as she planned?
post #992 of 1502
Ash, it's ok, I just deleted it because I'm so easily embarrassed by my emotions lately.

I guess we'll determine how Sora's legs/knees/ankles are tomorrow. She wouldn't let me touch much. She seemed a tad less gimpy before bedtime. Asleep now.

New baby nephew calmed our bad moods over here. 8 lb 12 oz, 21 in long! He looked big in the photos! Cutie. It looks like my sister's birth plan went as hoped. Haven't talked to her all day still but she was holding the baby in the birthing pool in a photo. :-D Yay!

Sara, if my husband had online friends, it would be a total nerd fest. And not in a good way. Her rx is pretty strong. The glasses are for the evening; contacts during the day. They are so nerdy cool that they have math symbols on the corners: + = x and the division sign.

My kids don't get to have that much fun. I am worrier. When dd1 was 3ish, she knew to question if something was a choking hazard for dd2 and was known to scream "do you have a death wish?!" at her in frustration. I can't think of much they have done that is dangerous. My motto is, "It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye."

Well, my dh will be at the gathering, so partners are definitely welcome.  I'm sure dh would appreciate some "other halfs" around for his entertainment.  And olders are welcome, too.  Dd will be 7 by then and loves older kids.  But we can figure this all out when the time comes.

 

Congrats on your nephew, Joanie!  And great news that things seem to have gone well!!  Sorry that you're fighting with your dh and that Sora got hurt.  It's always hard when they are actually hurt and you blame your partner for bad judgement.  Dh dropped Austin on his head while rough housing when he was really little and I just couldn't believe it.   But kids get over things so quickly.  I hope she's all better in the morning!

A local friend just posted this on my FB page since I was FBing about the whole leaving your kid home along thing.  She said it was a friend of hers from her DDC.  So I guess you two were in the same DDC!  Her name is Ashley.  Know her?

Joanie, you delete a lot, don't you?

Jaimee, every time I get together with a group of women and their husbands, I usually wind up with the menfolk, so I'm cool either way.

Amanda, we're not a bunch of geeks? I think Nicole and maybe Mal are not. Those west coasters sound like fun. Her glasses sound adorable.

Jaimee, I never see anything from you on FB, what's up with that?

Did you accidentally hide me?  You can try moving me up to a higher status like "close friend" for a while and maybe if we comment on each others' stuff more often we'll see more of each others' stuff.  I think that's how it all works.  Not sure though.  I typically post a status each day, sometimes more, sometimes links to pics, etc. 

post #999 of 1502
I usually only see when you comment on someone else's stuff. I'll look into it. I thought you were just quiet over there.
post #1000 of 1502
I don't ever delete anything I post on here. Maybe I should start filtering better. Ooops.

Sara, are you saying I am a geek? I'm confused.
