Well, : I did

Well done on your belly dancing ass kicking experience! The other day I was dancing with dd1 in the kitchen and she said 'you see Mummy it isn't so bad being 37- most Mummys stop this when they're 30'

Maybe you could pump milk to get one sleep stretch? Or a nap on a weekend when dh is home? Mine will often sleep 2 hours with dh, occassionally three away from me (without even giving a bottle).

I just know that each of those little stretches I got somehow helped me get through the rougher times. And it sounds like you are close to your breaking point. I just want to tell you that being AP isn't being a martyr. Your dd needs a sane mama...it is okay to take care of you too. That comes from a mama who didn't do it the first time around and has a new perspective the second time...

elcome:!!!

Hi maria, pav, juice, jessica, cori, amy, claire, sarenka, etc...

:

Today I am performing (bellydance) at Sol's little montessori school! Should be fun and I'm kind of nervous but what do little 'uns know about technique? As long as I'm having fun, I bet they're happy. It's a "parent participation project" where the parents show what they do for a living. Better than showing them all some lovely vacation rentals, no?

Hellooooooooooo! Good morning! We're home!

Our trip was awesome. Panda was a dream.

It is good to be back though.

I just saw a pile of playsilks go tearing madly across the kitchen. Turns out, ds1 somehow corraled the cat and generously draped him in multicolored finery. Poor Booger (the cat) hissed at me when I uncovered him, and bounded to the top of a bookcase where he can look down on us venomously and clean invisible toddler germs from his pristine fur. Something in me is quite proud that ds1 has acquired the life skill of being able to successfully herd cats. I find Booger shut up in ds1's room all the time. Holed up under the bed and spitting mad.

Speaking of playsilks...anyone know how to wash these? Ds2 spit up in copious amounts on a few. The dye seems to run fairly easily just from kids chewing on them. I got them from Magic Cabin, if that means anything.

Ds2's first tooth broke through today, and the second one doesn't seem far behind. Feeling quite smug, as dh didn't believe me. I thought ds1 was teething from the time he was three months and kept saying, "Any day now." Ds1 got his first tooth a week or so after his first birthday.

How's everyone's day going?

Has anyone seen Celeste/Still_Snarky's post in Parents as Partners? She's having a really rough time, some of you guys might want to PM her.

Sarenka, I agree : for JJoy and little Mattie!

AAAw, page 2.

I'm having a VERY HARD AFTERNOON. I am not proud of myself today. That is all that needs to be said. And now, for something completely different...

Ha ha ha you have a cat named booger! I LOVE it. And herding cats is a skill worth coveting. Re: cleaning playsilks, I would just rinse the daylights out of them individually in the sink and hang to dry. You might want to do that anyway if they're still bleeding when chewed on...

And my day has been insufferable, so far. I am trying very hard to shake it off, but it Just. Keeps. Coming. At. Me. The latest installment being that our snowplow skipped our house and did our neighbors instead, and I can't find their number to call and tell them how incredibly uncool that is. My throat hurts from yelling earlier : it has not been a good afternoon.

SOOOO glad to hear it went well. Eagerly awaiting details...

Elsanne, how did the bellydancing for the preschoolers go? I would imagine they'd be totally into it.

:guh's Juice. I'm sorry you are having an awful afternoon. I truly am. I wish I could give you a real hug.

I've had more than my share of : parenting moments lately. I'm sorry you're having them today.

Oddly, I feel MUCH better after posting that. Go figure.

hang in there juicy!
post #779 of 822


I'm trying it myself

It's 2.22 am, dh and dd1 have just left the house (they're driving a 7 hr drive to dh's sister's place where dd1 is acting in a scene of her film, she's a film student doing her diploma). Anyway, although dh swore he was prepared the evening before there was stomping around lights on etc and one delighted baby getting up. Then he yelled at me when I looked less than happy and said I should be running around getting food into bags for dd1 'because that's what mothers do'. Now if we'd arranged that I would get up to help, OK. But I had assumed that one parent was enough to do that and I stayed in bed feeding the baby and keeping her asleep. ASLEEP!! So here I am...where I shouldn't be.

Big helloooos to Kimya!! Glad it went well.

Tanya and Juice, sending you patience and virtual honey for tired throats..

He's an indoor cat these days, but back when he wasn't, I'd have to stand on the back porch of my apartment and scream "BOOGER! BOOGER!" into the night air to get him to come in. I have no idea what the neighborhood must have thought of me. I hope I was highly entertaining to someone, because I was rather embaressed. At the time of his naming, Booger really did seem like a great name. He's a snob who looks down on us all. If he only knew what his name meant.

I'm so sorry you've had such a hard day. Why on earth would they skip your house, short possibly of you edging your house with boulders. That puzzles me. You ought to call. I mean, you do pay your taxes (I assume )!
