Wow, Casina, sounds chaotic in your neck of the woods. I hope you get well soon. I happen to enjoy hearing you blurt out inappropriate things.
I need you to ground me and give me persepctive and tell me to grow up and deal with it.
We are actually thinking about all the possibilities with the house situation- the pros and cons of staying/leaving. We may add on a bedroom and/or family room, but we are still faced with the horrible school district, no pool, far from town, etc... Plus DH is incredibly lazy and I can't get him to help me clean up the property, and seeing as I'm pregnant I don't want to overdo it. It will probably be another year before we decide.
XmasEve- welcome back.
We actually have three foster DDs now- Julianna, Crystal, and Kaylee- with one baby on the way (probably another girl!) Your DD sounds "normal" to me. Half the time I still can't understand Julianna's speech, while Zachary can carry on a conversation with strangers and they understand every word. They both go to the bathroom by themselves, but that's only because I simply can not be everywhere at once, and they learned to help themselves or wait for me to be available. It doesn't mean they like it, but they deal with it.
Julianna has to be reminded lately to wipe after peeing because she's getting red and irritated.
: She sees peeing as an inconvenience, an interruption of her playing time, so she tries to make the trip as quick as possible. They both go to bed on their own now, but they share a room so they have each other to talk to. One or both of them usually end up in our room every few nights or so. They are still not in preschool. We do workbooks and stuff at home and they LOVE it. They constantly ask to "play school" when they see that I have a free moment. They do ask to go to school but I tell them they are still too little. In a way I would enjoy some "time off" during the day, but right now I'm not ready to let them go yet, so here we are...
Sarita- I can't imagine you with a big belly. You're so tiny! I'm probably as big as you are and I'm only 14 weeks!
I will pm you my phone numbers so you can give me a call. My mom and I will be busy cleaning the stupid house Friday and Saturday, but you can come over Saturday evening for the reception, and/or we can do the fair on Sunday or Monday, or lunch on Tuesday before we leave, or whatever else comes along.
Are your kids experts at making messes? Mine are. I mean, they completely destroy a room. It's insane. I know I keep saying I just need to get rid of the toys and that would solve the problem. If we move I will only take, like, two toys per kid and sell everything else at a garage sale!!!
And HELLO CARRIE!!!
