- Thanks for the babydust...I'm soooo ready for it...I'm waiting to o right now...and I tell you this *waiting* game that TTC encompasses is NUTS! We were very happily surprised the first time so I've never done the actual trying part...
As school is getting out, I'm going to have much more free time...soooo If no one esle is jumping at the chance...I would love to help out with the bead swap!!! My understanding every one picks a bead and sends me (x) amount and then I will repackage them with one bead from everyone and send them on to each participant? If that's right...Sure is something I can do!!*Amy*
- That is so scary!! I'm so glad you were there!! *hugs* mama. GL with the Toddler-proofing. It's MUCH harder than baby-proofing IMO.DiD
Ohhh mama! I've been there. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. It's such a hard place to be in...I don't have any of the answers to the insurance stuff...it's all Greek to me. But I'm here if you need to talk/vent/cry etc...and to tell you that IME...once you hit bottom it's always so much greener coming out of it.. You find a greater appreciation for what you have when you are faced with having nothing. *hugs*
And I just had to add barcelona lives somewhere near me!!! I just now found out. So yay! I hope we can meet up and let the kiddos play!! well that is if she wants to play with us...
I just got a call from my *best friend* in town. We were planning on getting together today with a few other mama's. Our kiddos are a month apart. We met when we were pregnant and through the last couple of years have gotten really close. We plan our summer months down to a T because I'm home and not working. During the school year I'd go over to her house and crash out and watch TV and things *she TiVo'd my one show for me and we watched it together*. Well Wednesday we did that but I brought DH and DS with me instead of just DS. We found out when we got there that DS had had a rough day at daycare because he was being unusually rough..so I kept reminding DH to keep a close eye on him when I wasn't there. There was a point where he went up to K and gave her hugs. It was adorable. He gave her kisses and more hugs. She was grinning and we all were adoring them. But then he bit her on the cheek. I took him away and held him telling him that *teeth hurt* and that K was crying because he used his teeth on her. I helped BF take care of K and kept an eagle eye on DS for the rest of the night. No more incidents...he was more rough but we kept him from hurting himself, K or any of BF's stuff....I apologized as we left that DS was so *off* and BF agreed that he was and I thought that was the end of it.
Fast forward to today. She calls me an hour before she's supposed to come over for our playdate and says "I'm not coming" I said "Okaaay?" She replied, "I need a break from you guys. I have felt it all week and I hoped it would go away but I just can't spend time with you."
I'm heartbroken. I know that DS bit K and I realize where *I* needed to do things differently to avoid that sort of situation...but I thought our friendship was deeper than something like this. I've been so stressed out lately with school...it's been a nightmare. I know I've been distant...you guys know I've been distant...it's taken all my energy to just do my job and be a mama and a wife...but I'm hurting now...
I know I would have reacted differently in this situation from her...because I've been the bit child's mama before and honestly I was more afraid for the girl who bit DS because her mama came over and bit her when it happened...but I just feel so sad...like I am losing something because of choices that I'm making...but at the same time I don't feel like I'm making the wrong choices...so I wonder if I'm supposed to just let her go...I don't want to.
So I sit her crying. Wishing I knew what to do and how to react to all this.
