You said this much better than I could have. You are so right...it seems to be an unspoken statement when you do things different from them, no matter how non-judgmental we try to be.

I will gladly choose not to be friends with someone if our basic parenting styles just DO NOT align. To me, often times, how they treat their children has been an accurate portrayal of how they treat themselves and others in their lives.

Kelly, have to say I love the "guatemama" title too! Reminded me that your first ds is Guatemalan! I was in the Peace Corps in Guatemala from 93-95 and the country holds a strong, fond place in my heart. And yaaaay for :1000 and !!! It is amazing the quantity of good things you can now access.

There's Jami workin' the multiquote thang!!! You go girl!

Had a hard night...baby mucho wakies and then Sol (almost 3, also in bed w/me) was snortin' n snufflin' with a cold--asks for water at 3 am. I go get it. 5 am, she sits up screaming OUUUUUUCH!!! and clutching her (what I now know was her) bladder and as I begin to take off her jammies she explodes wetly all over us, the bed, the floor en route to the bathroom, etc...I'm thinking it's diarrhea and am sooo relieved to see it's pee.

And I have a meeting with my boss this morning, whom I never see (lives in NYC). So, yes, nervous, hope I'm doing okay, etc etc. He is the owner of this house which is my job--to get it rented out as a retreat center. Has not happened yet, just now getting it "out there" (advertising). If any of you or your dhs or anyone has a business or executive or spiritual retreat, or family reunion event type thing, this is the perfect place. Truly lovely.

Good luck with your meeting, Elsanne! That is a beautiful place! I don't remember pics when you first mentioned your dream job a while back.


Good morning, all! It's Monday and I'm tired after a night filled with baby sniffles and a bit of teething thrown in for good measure. I can feel little bumps in her gums now, so it won't be long! I think she's working on four!

That house looks so serene! Definitely a great place for a retreat!

Mounds of laundry to be done and I have a bad case of the Mondays! Argh!

I have no friends! No really- I still haven't met anyone since I moved down here 2 1/2 years ago. That's ok though- I am kinda a homebody anyway.
I am just to shy to go out and meet people. And it is really hard for me to be friends with people who are mainstream- It makes me so unbelievably sad for their babies .Its probably good that I just stick around MDC!

One way I met some like minded mamas was on the Find Your Tribe section here on MDC. I've met about 5 other mamas in my area and I keep in very regular contact with one of them. Even homebodies need friends! Make a post there for a get-together and see who responds.

That's a good idea- In fact, I did meet a mama that lives down here and she owns an online cloth diaper store. I have plans to eventually get together with her, but she just had a baby a few weeks ago so I am giving her a little time to recoup. I live about 1/2 hour from the Phoenix area so I am sure there are probably tons of mom's around there on MDC!

Dilemma for the day

We have two window boxes in back under the kitchen and bath windows. Last year, some small birds built a nest inside them under my seedling trays. By the time we found out, there were already eggs, so we left them alone. It was fun for ds and dd to see the eggs and eventually the birds as they hatched, fell out of the nest and then the abandoned nest.

This morning I was washing some dishes when the same kind of bird landed on the box and stood there looking at me with a beakful of stuff for the nest. The thing is, I really wanted to put flowers in there this year. Should I clean it out and shoo them away? Or should I wait for flowers until the nest is empty?
post #138 of 755
I keep checking in and wanting to do a proper multiquote response to those with sore nipples and baby sniffles and etc etc but it hasn't happened today - dd took a flying head dive out of the high chair which was all my fault: and I have been sticking to her like glue all day.

Hugs all and Elsanne - I'm sure it will be fine.

I have such a hard time with this. Two of my good friends did CIO. I let them know that I didn't agree with it and could never do that to my babies. I think that what I said was, "I could never do that to my babies. It just doesn't make any sense to me to put them in a room by themselves and let them cry." We are still friends, so I guess I didn't offend them too much. they know where I stand and I know where they stand. We just try not to talk about it.

Sorry I can't get the words out, but thank you for the insight there.
: Sabbath, you have opened up a new way of thinking for me. Well, not new, just a different perspective. Lots to think about. And you thought you'd get flamed. HA!

He calmed down pretty quickly, but had a fat lip and a blood blister this morning to show for it. Luckily he didn't act any differently today than any other, but oh the guilt.

in other news, I'm in a tank top and shorts today and about to go play with ds in the grass Gotta love sicily in March.
Don't you love Mommy Guilt?? Oh, and I am SO jealous of your weather!

i work very hard at being nonjudgemental. it is one of my personal goals. But when i feel that emotional neglect of a child is involved, it becomes nearly impossible, even if I never actually say anything outloud.

Thank you all for the s and :guhs. Truly, I love this board. We got through the day without incidence and A is now older than E was. It is a bittersweet milestone. Always is.

We still don't know when we're moving. Hopefully dh will get the official offer (ie numbers) today. We're hoping to go on a house hunting trip this weekend and move the weekend of the 19th. We'll see though! EEK!
post #140 of 755
I have lots to respond to, but no time now. I must get this house in order in the next 2 weeks before my trip. Tanya~ I totally seey our dilemna. I guess I'd vote for waiting till the nest is empty. But i could see not wanting to give up your flowers again. Tough choice.

So I went to whole foods yesterday to get some probiotics for Mattie. She is still constipated. I've gotten one poop in 2 weeks and I'm beginning to really feel worried. Thinking that it may be a result of antibiotics, I thought I'd try to restore her intestinal flora. There's one lady that's very helpful, but she was not there this week. So I asked the lady I found a couple questions. I was looking at one brand that I've used with Emma that worked out well, but didn't know what the dosage should be for Mattie. She told me I should try this other probiotc that's a powder. She said I could just mix with her formula and put it in her bottle. I said she doesn't have a bottle, I'll just take this kind. And I left. I feel very unsettled about it. I'm unsure of what I should do with this. I probably should have sad something to the woman, but I was so shocked. I get that verywhere else-the assumption that I ff, but at whole foods, I guess I expect that people would assume I bf, particularly someone working there. Maybe I'm just being overly sensitive.
