1. 48 hour rule. Sounds great. Right now we are currently working with an "anything that happened within our lifetimes" rule, which means when DH gets mad he'll bring up something that happened 5 years ago.
2. Katie, congrats on the job! Kessa, I"m glad you get to see your DH. Helen, your posts make me laugh. And, I like the snowbabies pictures everyone posted.
3. Heidi, I'm sorry to hear about your difficulties, and hope things work out soon. (I don't have any great suggestions, unfortunately).
P is a crawling fiend and he wreaks havoc wherever he goes. DH is tired!
Why are eggs "on sale" for $1.99? Why are they so expensive now? These aren't even happy chicken eggs- they're from battery cage chickens. ???
This weekend I discovered the cats had peed outside of the litterbox, because the box had gotten so bad. I must be really out of it, because I had FORGOTTEN that we have a litter box!
: Note to self: be very very sweet and loving to cats.
DH keeps getting after me to get a playpen but instead I put chairs sideways on the floor and it worked... for 6 hours, when he figured out how to go around them. Little stinker.
Did I post about this before? VENT warning:
SS's mother's youngest son was born on Jan 2. She has been bfing him, but SS said on Wed. that "sometimes she has to use formula because she doesn't have enough milk." ??? She bf SS until he was 2, so I don't see how she could truly have supply problems. I wanted to suggest things, but she and I don't have a relationship. I just said to SS that she'd make enough milk if she just let the baby suck, because that's what stimulates milk production.
I even went so far as to consider sending information to her in the mail about how she should essentially get rid of the formula and pacifier (I'm sure she's using one), just nurse her baby on demand, and it would be fine.
Well, this weekend she left the baby with her mother so she could go over to her sister's house.
: WFT? He's 1 month old! No wonder she has supply problems, because she leaves this sweet new thing when her supply is establishing.
I know it's none of my business, and I know it doesn't matter that I'm frustrated by how it affects SS. He's smart, he'll figure it out. I guess I"m just sad for the baby. It wasn't like she HAD to leave him. (And if anyone out there left their baby at 1 mo, please don't take offense! This isn't directed towards you!) Why do people bother having kids when all they want to do with them is farm them out to others? (This statement is not just derived from this occurrence.)
Anyway, I don't think she wants
to bf him, so I won't bother sending her info.
And, SS told us he doesn't like spending time w/ his mom because she makes him take care of the kids (one brother, 2.5, one brand new). That's sad.
Ok, off to work.
