post #42 of 221
Oh my, there is so much to catch up! And I'm sorry I've been pretty MIA. Between rehearsals, my two mornings at work, and keeping up with Finley, it's been tough to find free typing time. I have been reading, reading along, though. Big Hugs to all of you mamas going through a rough time...

Unfortunately, I only have a few moments before I need to go get dinner ready and do our nightly thing.

But I did want to let y'all know that I will be on Law and Order: Criminal Intent tonight, if you happen to be near the telly! (Helen, I realize you won't be able to see it, but I'll post it on my website next week and anyone who misses it can watch it if you want). It starts at 9pm Eastern time, on NBC, and I'm toward the end of the episode. I'm both excited and nervous, and just hope I'm not mortified.

Sorry to come by with just "me" news, but will be on in the coming days to catch up more with everyone!

Love to everyone. Thinking of you all the time.

i have short blonde hair and i'm on toward the end of the episode. i play the lead girl's boyfriend's cousin. (the lead girl is one of my closest friends, and it was between the two of us for that part...she got it, and they wrote this scene for me). i also have a baby in a baby bjorn for the scene. hopefully that'll be clue enough to know it's me!

guess it starts soon!

DiD, get well soon

Spughy, I posted a long post last night and it didn't go through. In your shoes, I'd hire a nanny for a week. I really feel that kids of this age are better off with the intensive attention of a solo caregiver with a strong emotional attachment (a nanny, a childminder with a limited number of charges, a parent, a grandparent) than they are with a larger number of kids. Rowan may well sleep better but possibly at the cost of her overall development. Your dh really needs to grow up and take responsibility for his lack of actions, because it's such a small thing but would come so much better from him than you.
Are your in-laws entirely on board with your refusal to CIO, btw? If their solution to the problem would be to just put ear plugs in and let her get on with it, they may not be so sympathetic.

WAAAH! I missed it! That's what I get for not obsessively checking our thread every five minutes today, lol! I want to see it now--is it online somewhere or something?

Fern, I'm sorry! I should have been clearer. The episode was called "The Silencer". Kavita and others who missed it, I'll be putting my scene on my website in the coming week or so, so I'll be sure and let you all know and give you the link. It was definitely crazy-weird seeing myself on tv, and I couldn't help but critique myself too much, but otherwise, it was lots of fun!

More soon!

Happy Wedding Day Kaspirant!!!!!!

HAPPY WEDDING DAY KASPIRANT!!!!! I hope everything goes smoothly and you post your beautiful pictures soon!!!

And I saw barcelona on TV!!!!! I stayed up past my bedtime to watch and I saw her and I was all giggly because wow I know someone on L&O!!! You were fabulous, by the way. I was really tired watching it though and I kind of missed the reason why the person who did it killed the dean too? I didn't get that part. It made me confusled. Anyway, you were awesome!

I slept on the couch for most of last night while DH slept with Rowan and he was able to get her back to sleep no problem so that was good. I feel more rested and chipper this morning.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Yes, DH should do something about it but he is going to be more involved with Rowan's day-to-day life now that his thesis is submitted (as of today I think) and he'll be taking her swimming and stuff. My MIL won't drive Rowan anywhere which kind of rules out the museum and stuff and to be honest, I'm ok with that, because she is a right crappy driver - the whole family is, I've no idea how they manage to not get in accidents regularly.

This morning I indulged my appetite for cuteness and dressed Rowan up in a little jumper (sleeveless dress, not a sweater, Helen!) and the cutest stripy tights EVER that I bought a week or so ago and I've been dying to put on her. She is too cute for words today. It was hard to leave her and go to work. (She rarely wears dresses but I pulled a bunch out of storage that are 18 mo size last week and figured she might as well get some use out of them.)

So, tomorrow my diet & exercise plan - such as it is - starts. I'm ok with my milk supply tanking, if that happens, and it's time to get my healthy body back. Wish me luck!

Spughy, I'm there with you. I'm on day 3 of the exercise plan and so far, aside from the gratuitous consumption of 360 Easter eggs today, I'm doing good.
Kaspirant, I hope your day is brilliant
Miajean, it's nice to meet you

i know your older boy is really tiny like elwynn.. do you find yourself worrying about your baby too?
ngaio was big when she was born but she is only about 23 Lbs now.. i cant help worry about her growing slowly like elwynn. i actually made him a drs appt after trying to be okay with him Still being 20 something LBS at 4 years of age and having most 2 and 3 year old tower over him. im always sick with worry that something else is wrong i just want to know i guess, but on the otherhand, i dont want him to be poked and prodded, which is why ive avoided it so long.
and ngaio..all she wants is boobie and i just dont feel like i have enough, or that my milk is nutritious enough..shes just not gaining quickly at all. *sigh* she nibbles food or chews it and spits it out. she wants Juice and raw carrots all the time, which i hesitate at and refuse to give her (carrots that is)
i try everything and its making me so sad.. not to mention the fact that im makingall of this food that i dont want to waste so i end up eating it and im getting fat . Ug.
Yes, Ethan is almost 4.5 and he is 26# and in 18 mo.-2T clothes! Ez is 22#, I just had them weighed. It's funny b/c we think Ezra is so huge and fat, but really he is probably 50th %ile or less! They are in the same size summer clothes now. We did have him get a lot of tests when he was younger, but it never revealed anything, and at this point I feel like what's the point of putting a name to it- let's just treat whatever symptoms he has, y/k? So if Elwynn is healthy in every other way and there is no evidence of anything being wrong it doesn't seem like doing a lot of tests would do anything, except maybe give you reassurance that you tried everything and this is just the way he is. I will be so curious to see what they are like when they're grown up!

I am right with you on eating all the food so it (and my time and effort) doesn't get wasted!

Congratulations, Kaspirant!

CONGRATS KASPIRANT!!!

Hope you have a magical day!

Welcome MiaJean!

Noah and I have today thru next Monday off work...I'm SOOO excited! I love being able to take JUST Noah to our Wednesday play group. We had a great day together and this unexpected time off was definitely a blessing. BTW...someone was missing at playgroup today...SPIRITMOMMA!!! We have missed you lately!
post #57 of 221
DiD: Sorry everyone's feeling so crummy... Get well soon, all of you!

SoulJourney: I missed you guys too. But I'm trying not to drive my car too much due to expired plates. I kinda have to wait and get the title from my Grandma before I can renew them too. But soon, I'll be back out and about. Miss you and Noah too!

MiaJean: jump right in!

Hope everyone is having a lovely week. The weather took a turn for the colder here, but I hope we'll have some sun again soon. I'm ready to head back to the park.

hi hi

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][I][SIZE="3"][COLOR="MediumTurquoise"]

Nice to meet ya'll.

I'm in alabama, in hoover.

I'm currently trying to figure how much of my future to morgage for a Bacholors degree in culinary arts and if that is a pie in the sky how to get a contract job (sounds like a mercenary huh?) to go to Afganistan or elsewhere in the middle east and make lots and lots of money.

Both are definetely things I'm wanting to do. I do not want to be apart from my DD but hubby and I are sooo strapped and struggleing and we are both apart for 30 days at a time since he started trucking. Awful. so the job would be a paperwork position and helping build a country that has built up so much in the last four years. Afganistan is doing great...., incredible momentum, hospitals, allowing thier woman to become nurse midwives! schools, the intent about how to change the social chioces that thier culture has....I just think it would be a great experience.

But cooking full time, 4 years paid to cook, paid to learn how to do a great thing and then make a career out of food and having fun in the kitchen. I'd be so happy.

So, DD is so toally spoiled lately, she has direct tv kids channels and she watches for a few hours a day while I do all the phone calls. She is very participent oriented, talks to the t.v. wanders about, sings and dances, plays with her toys and tells them to watch the shows...
I only feel a little guilty. The programs are her age area, she loves them, and I get the preliminary work done to get her into a really great expensive nice daycare while I make living money and go to school.
