Anyway, that is all to say... BIG hug to you aydensmama.... I don't know if I would have let my DH go. I hope Mason's better VERY soon and you are a great, great mom staying so close. Unsung heroes are we, moms of sick babes!
Thanks so much. I did not necessarily let him go, he kept saying should I go, I won't go, well maybe I'll go, and I did not respond. I did not want to validate him either way. He should of made the right decision IMO. I am super upset with him to say the least. Thanks and I really hope that Lulu feels better and it doesn't keep up or pass to the babe!

Look at me, I learned how to qoute!!!!!!! :

Juice~ that's how our chiro does it. Oh how I wish i could take my girls in, or to you. And myself, I couldn't even begin to dream that big. My C3 always goes out because I'm a belly sleeper. I tried to program my girls to not be belly sleepers. i turned Emma over till she was 13 months. She always flipped back over within a minute. i've given up with mattie. It must be a gene. My lower back is also always off and I have one hip that is usually out. Anyway, enough about my back.....

If Juice were my chiro, I'd see her three times a week. :

Maybe if we keep asking about Amy and Pavlina they'll check in??? :

I won't be around much the rest of the week. Major things happening with our bill. My house must be cleaned tomorrow for my SIL to watch my dd1 on Thursday while the baby and I go to the house committee hearing. If it passes committee on Thursday, it could be on the House floor for a vote as soon as Friday!! Then on to the Senate....

Juice, i would go see you too if you weren't that far. My chiro doesn't crack either, he uses a dif equipement tho than you. Dont know what's it called.

talking about belly sleeper, dd3 was a belly sleeper until she got sick. Now she sleeps on her back. It feels totally weird to put her on her back and see her fall asleep like that.

This is not to discount PPd, but sometimes I think PPD is a RATionAL reponse to a difficult situation....!! How's that!


I have the same experience, and totally agree that PPD can be a rational response to a situation which no one was designed to cope with alone. To me, Sabbath, when I read through your thread (and didn't respond - sorry - babe getting into everything) what struck me the most was loneliness. That you need people around, physically around, maybe it's even worth cutting down on internet friends in order to pull out all the stops and get yourself surrounded by some real life women?? Or maybe that's just my advice to myself! certainly witt's question was on the nail - what do YOU need.

:

aydensmama - love the pics, and mad at your dh for you. I must say, in your place I would have said something while he was deciding. Like "I cannot possibly do this alone and I need you"!!

I say this quite a lot :

Joy - yay for the poop!! Please don't install conversational filters. I like you the way you are!!

Baby seems to be doing wonderfully. She's got more energy, and needs less sleep, than ever. This is taking its predictable toll on mom, who has pretty much the same energy and sleep needs as she did prior to this amazing burst in baby productivity.

Side note: I think I missed the official notice that the verb "to give" was removed from the English language. I have read so many instances of the NOUN "gift" being used as a verb in the past couple days, it is driving my inner stickler crazy. "I was gifted..." when the writer doesn't mean "I was unusually intelligent or talented" makes me cringe every time. I even cringed a little typing it out just now.

I'm sorry I've been so out of it! Someone send me an email if you ever really want my attention. I think I have that enabled from my username thingie.

adorable! I can't believe all the teeth. K is about to sprout a tooth - my earliest teether yet at 7.5mos. He's army crawling and mad as hell that he can't get there faster. It's not an overly happy time for him these days. :

I have so many of those language things that make me cringe. As far as I can tell, however, this one is ok
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gift :

btw, would anyone visit an online tupperware party if I had one? As much as I'd love to be no-plastic in the house, it's not realistic at this point. Tupperware plastic, I'm told, is the safest type, and it's guaranteed for life, so I'm thinking about investing in this and pitching the cheap toxic stuff that I keep re-buying.

Wow, you ladies make me blush so early in the morning! :

Nooo! That is my DS very favorite thing in the world. Well, almost very favorite. Thanks for the info!

Coming off a no-sleep night. Not for them, just for me : and I am coffee-free right now, in hopes that I can take a tiny nap before I go to work. If Ethan cooperates, it just might work.

Say, do you all have any swell showering solutions? I've resorted to putting him on the bathroom floor with some toys and trying to shower in 2 minutes or less, before he starts rolling around all over

Ooooh I like your style! I could go on n on about these things. Also liked how you described baby-sleep-mama-thing.

Aydensmama--truly, that first one is like worthy of some sort of prize. What great pictures. You look like you're really enjoying your son, and isn't that what it's all about?
Newlywaaz--in my morning/stuffy head: state I totally pictured handling used compact discs and getting some nasty bacteria from them...

a) Remember, dear, that you HEAL PEOPLE. This is no small feat. You deserve mucho credit. Mega karma points in your favor.

b) so sorry for the no-sleep night. What's it about, if they slept fine?

c) Showering: I have this nice little lip about baby-chest height into the tub where I shower while she plays/pushes herself up/whatever. Sometimes it works, sometimes I have a wah-wah serenade.
post #214 of 755
we just discovered the tub ring, which has been nice. She sits in it at the end of the tub, and showers too. I can still have my hot water, I just fill the tub a little bit with water, and stop the drain and by the time my hot water gets to the tub and mixes with her water it doesn't make it to hot. And I point the shower head straight down so the spray isn't near her.

Sarenka you are so wise! Thank you for your words.

This morning dd1 gave me a sense of impending doom when she complained of being sick. She said her belly hurt. No fever, no snots, just definitely not feeling good. We go about our morning business getting ds to school. I carry her in when we get home, and tell her to lay down on the couch while I get dd2 out of the car. By the time I get back inside, she had just :Puke all over the floor. She had about a spoonful left that I caught with the bowl. She's now sleeping on the couch.

Guess I may not be going to the capitol tomorrow if she pukes again. Is that bad to be sad I can't go? : I do feel great empathy for my dd1. Especially when she told me in the bathroom as I cleaned her up "The princess is sick!" in her I'm-really-sick voice and with her I'm-really-sick face.

:yawn: :
Ethan cooperated, we got back in bed after I dropped the girls off at school, and TWO HOURS later, I emerged, at 10:30. It feels almost sinful! Ethan is still sleeping :

Aydensmama, I meant to say earlier that Mason looks wonderful. I'd have no idea of his earlier troubles. Are there any lasting effects that you know of? He looks like he's right on target!

WNB, you're in good company on this thread. Nitpickers and sticklers are we (though very forgiving)! Especially when NAK - that's when my hypocrisy shines through.

Elsanne, I said it before and I'll say it again - I don't heal people. I unscramble them, and then they heal themselves. It might seem like a semantic difference, but I believe that healing comes from within. So I don't take it personally when someone doesn't get better right away, and I don't take it personally when someone claims that I "cured" them.

On the sleep last night - everybody did well, which means everybody woke up once (twice for the babe) and they were just all timed so that I didn't rest. All was good until 2am, when Ethan wanted to eat. 2:30 I had to pee. Since I actually got out of bed, it took me a while to settle back down. 3:45 Allison cried out in her sleep but didn't wake up. 4:30 Ethan ate. 5:15 Caitlyn came in and asked someone to tuck her back in bed. 6:00 DH reset his alarm for later : and the rest is history. But I'm perking up after a nap - which is unheard of around here. Just when you really need a break, the universe provides.

Of course it's not bad! I'd be terribly disappointed. But I still have my fingers crossed that she'll make a quick recovery, and all will be well.

Your description of her dialogue made me chuckle... last night DD2 explained that she had a cough *insert fake cough from 2 year old* and needed a cookie. I looked at her in disbelief and DH told me that 5 minutes earlier she'd told him she had a cough *cough cough* and needed applesauce.

Sigh. And the hits just keep on coming. My OTHER grandfather died last night. This one was NOT expected. Were is the bottom of this hole anyways, LOL
post #219 of 755
Sabbath. I am so sorry for your loss. There's a song on our cd that says somewhere in the middle "bad news never had good timing." :guh
post #220 of 755
Juice, you are so right--it's true that people heal themselves--and your unscrambling helps the messages get to the right parts. I just want to give you some props for all the hard work you do for those around you, really.

Oh, Sab. Wow. Are you anywhere near 30 years old? They say that's the "Saturn Return"...my condolences on your grandfather.
