Joanie, I'm still at work, then an hour in the car.

I'm attempting to get ready for the trip. LOL I should record it. It's quite funny.

And Layla is requiring to be held again. And my sling AND Moby are in my car, which DH took to work. Not my proudest moment.

And Conner can officially open the pantry door so every Pop Tart I have is currently on my coffee table.

Just trying to not puke, and ended up here at starbucks with a free drink (freebies are the only reason I came today lol haven't been here in ages). Eli is hanging out in s own comfy chair since they were actually available for once.

Any one else's kid a terror to get dressed? Ugh, getting Eli dressed has become a nightmare, if he isn't constantly running away, he is kicking and flailing while I unsuccessfully try to restrain him somewhat so I can him dressed. Also, having a hard time finding a hat for his giant head...

Shay is. I have literally put his pants on him while holding upside down by one ankle more than once. The child hates clothes.

Eli HATES being naked, so I am not sure what the fuss is about. When he is naked he cries, but when I try to dress him, he fights me all the way *sigh*

Coralie will get dressed and then be half naked again by the time we're ready to leave. I will put her shoes on and they're missing again within minutes.. Today she kept taking her boots and skirt off at Kmart to try on clothes. Like literally every time I set her down she was half naked again..

Sonja, You HAVE to be pregnant, there just isn't another option really...

Nicole, Good luck packing, I think the worst part of traveling is packing and then un-packing and cleaning things once you get home again..

This is how he gets dressed. If he doesn't have pants on, the diaper gets pulled off immediately. Shoes and socks are a joke, also.

Joanie, I'm glad that I could help you, and I am deeply touched by what you said about me, thank you. I'm so sorry to hear about your dad.  Do you think you worry about your own health more because of all you've experienced with him?  Did you say once that your mom has health issues too? I just want to emphasize that your fate is NOT that of your parents.  Truly.  Maybe I'm off-base here but I want to throw that out there.  Also it's exciting to hear you're thinking of changing your unhappy work situation, I hope it works out for you!

 

Nicole! That's great news about the sitter.  Do you know her well?  Or does your DH? Can't wait to hear how it goes!

 

Sonja, KJ is a *little* reluctant to get dressed, but I just calmly say "ok! tell me when you're ready to put your (socks/pants/shirt/etc) on!" and usually she immediately comes over and lets me do it.  Or she wants to do something else and I'll keep with the "ok! As soon as we get dressed."  So it's not too bad over here.  Hope you get some answers soon, we are all dying to know too!

 

Abra, love the Coralie in Kmart story! Such a great image.

 

Jaimee, that's fabulous about your carpool situation.  We all know that crazy anxiety of the cursed car nap.  Glad you can avoid that one!  And how'd I get so wise? Breakdowns.  Lots and lots of breakdowns.  Er, spiritual awakenings.  That's what I meant.  Oh yeah, and the Oprah magazine, duh.

 

Sara, I felt like I was going to cry reading about Sara threatening to take the babies.  I'm so, so sorry you're dealing with all of this and wish there were some way I could help.  We will soon have a finished basement if you need to run away and hide out for awhile.  Seriously :)  Hope the schedule helps ease the tension.  You are an inspirational woman and mom.

 

Hi Ash and Amanda!

 

OK so night weaning round 2 has been an absolute miracle.  KJ says many times throughout the day "Milkie on the couch or chair.  No milkie in the bed."  So I know she's truly assimilating it, digesting it, understanding it.  She hasn't pushed for milk in bed for a week and she's been waking up only once per night for at least the last 4-5 days.  I can't even believe how much better things are.  The only catch is she is waking up EARLY (like 5:30ish every morning) but I don't even care.  I can go to bed earlier, I just can't deal with the broken sleep.  So still not quite banking enough hours but I feel eight trillion times better at least.

I'm getting sick. And having anxiety. My dad's girlfriend's son wanted to view the body so we're doing that tomorrow afternoon. And I have mixed feelings about doing that. We're just doing a viewing and then some kind of food here at my aunt's house where we're staying (probably a couple blocks from Sonja!) No service. The bigger memorial will be in Ontario where the bulk of his family and friends are, but I'm having anxiety about that. I haven't cried today. I just feel stupid and useless.

Hey, where is Amanda? Dammit Amanda! Stop disappearing!
post #2074 of 2728

Glad to hear that night weaning is going better.  We managed to easily night-wean Coralie, but she's still waking up 3 times!!!!  She gets up around 1:00am to pee, then at 3:00am to moan and need a kiss, then at 6:00am to nurse and then she's up for the day around 8:00am..  So, she's not nursing at night, but not much has improved.  Boooo!  That's what sucks about having a night-time potty trained child, diapers are so much easier....

 

Tonight is a night for ORGANIC cherry, lime and gin jello.  Mmmmmm.

Oh Kirstin! I'm so, so sorry.  You don't have to go to that viewing.  You really don't.  Not going has nothing to do with how much you loved your dad or what a wonderful daughter you are, I promise.    I'm just so freaking sorry and wish I could help somehow.  Everything you're feeling is exactly what you're supposed to be feeling right now.  ((((((((Kirstin))))))))

post #2076 of 2728
Oh Kirsten, we must have cross posted. Katie is absolutely right, you are feeling all of the things you are supposed to be feeling. Death makes us feel things that don't seem to make sense, and don't seem to have anything to do with the relationship or loved one we lost- but they are all valid feelings, and they are all part of a big process. Mourning feels like crap. Its just awful, and wrenching. But even when it feels like too much just try to remember that you are moving through, because its a process, and someday you will feel better. You are not stupid, you are not useless. I'm so sorry you are going through this, and I second wishing there was something I could do to make you feel better.
post #2077 of 2728

Hugs Kirsten!   How long are you staying for?

post #2078 of 2728
We're going to stay tomorrow night and leave Friday sometime.
post #2079 of 2728
Did you come with your dh and kiddies? Let me know if there is anything I can do for you...
post #2080 of 2728
Lots of cramps and contractions tonight. Sigh.
