My DH finds out tomorrow morning if he gets a job working 7 days a week from 6pm - 6am. I have no idea how we can manage that schedule - but we really need him to be working again. I just can't stop hoping he doesn't get the job though, is that horrible?

zoo sounds cold today!! lol i guess its a little warmer then it has been tho.
dh's job sounds hard!! no days off?? or is it work 7 days then a few days off then work 7 days again? no break i could imagine would burn you out FAST! hope he finds a good job soon!! he doesn't do computer work does he? maybe if he did dave could hook him up somewhere.

Someone stole my wallet and $200! I took the kids to Home Depot for their Kids Workshop. And bought something, then went to the car, checked for my wallet. It was gone. We looked through everything, went back in, talked to the manager, cashier-nothing! So I went home, looked through car again. Phone rang-it was a lady saying she found my wallet and was on her way over. YEA! But, when she got here, there was no cash. I am SO bummed! That was all of our cash until DH gets his student loans in 2 weeks. Luckily I got my WIC checks yesterday. So the kids won't starve. The lady who brought it to me said she found it in the parking lot and maybe someone stole the $ and threw it on the ground. I called my bank and canceled my CC. SO bummed.

I just can't understand how people can do stuff like that. I mean-can you imagine feeling so ENTITLED?!? I just have to settle on thinking that maybe they have kids that are hungrier than ours, either that or they just needed to buy a bigger TV. Who knows. -sigh-

Thanks for listening to my rant. I feel better. I think I will go out and plant some bulbs while the kids sleep. It is actually around 50 here today-unheard of for Jan. We haven't had our 2-3 wks of 20-30 below 0 yet.

I need some sun-therapy!
that's horrible!!! will you be ok until your next check??

lilmomma83 - have fun at the zoo! Wow - that job does sound tough. Like ultimateserj said, hopefully it wouldn't be 7 days a week w/ never having a day off! You are definitely not bad for hoping he doesn't get it. I know it's important for him to be working, but it can't be worth it if he has no quality of life.

Scout saw my MIL & FIL for the first time in quite a while - I'm pretty sure it's been at least a couple months since MIL had seen her. We had a nice visit and Scout actually let each of them hold her for quite a while, which is amazing since she's been pretty glued to DH and I. They only live about 35 minutes away, but for some reason we hardly ever get together. They were totally enamoured with her yesterday though, and kept saying how we need to get together more often, so hopefully they will end up becoming a bigger part of Scout's life. My family lives across the country and I think it would be such a shame for her to grow up not really knowing any of her grandparents.

DH got his birthday wish last night. Me, lingerie, champagne, and a hotel room. We were going at it like honeymooners.

We started out with a light dinner in our room and one thing we noticed was how quiet it was. Do you know that a refrigerator has a hum?

He had an excellent birthday and was the happiest man alive when we pulled into the hotel parking lot.

Back on topic: Sophia has 2 top teeth poking through. Must be why she didn't want to nurse much yesterday.

Desmond did a 3 hour stretch last night sleeping! Okay I do find it kind of sad I am so happy about it. Especially since I was awake for the whole stretch (oops). I wasn't able to get him to sleep earlier then normal last night so he went down at midnight again, hoping to push it back to 10pm again tonight.

My inlaws are coming over shortly for a few hours, should be nice for Desmond, except it is going to screw up his nap times, sigh. Oh well. When they leave we'll head to the grocery store for food for the week. Hopefully baby boy will get enough of a nap today not to be too grumpy tonight.

Goof for you guys, I would've used the room for sleep I am so tired.
Romi is nursing every 2 freaking hours. Not one tooth yet. I even tried Kewpie's "disposable diapers made Scout sleep longer" trick to no avail.

Yes, thanks for inquiring. Thank goodness, now I can get back to cloth today.

ETA: I spoke too soon. ANother big green one, with a piece of candle wax in it! Yuck. And she's banging her mouth with her hand and yelling. Darn teeth.

Thank you for all the hugs! I think I am doing much better about it today. However, we did have to take $ out of Andy's bank today for food. Oh well. At least we are all healthy and happy!

So...Johnny called me today...."Heh-duh" (this is how most small children say my name - Heather) and did so multiple times throughout the day so I've told everyone they have to call me mommy now

My DH's job does not get days off, but wil probably only last 6mos - his friend (who just quit this job today ironically) said he think it will be over in 10 days (it's all construction) but now my DH is saying they will probably want him to go somewhere else (I forget if he said Minisota or Montana)..we'll see I guess I shouldn't think about it too much yet.

OH and MT Mama- glad things are working out and you are feeling better.

Oh yes- and the zoo was fun. Johnny's favorite thing where the teeny little shrews though and at one point we all saw a lizard on the cieling of an exhibit and Johnny kept staring intently at the floor of the exhibit and we couldn't figure out why - it turned out that we were all looking at the reflection of the real lizard that was on the floor (what Johnny was looking at all along).

Hey, don't you guys do it like honeymooners anyway??

Eva was miserable today. And the girl is always happy. She was up so many times I lost count last night. She's getting teeth- but the damn things won't come through! Tylenol doens't help too much, and forget the homeopathic. Poor little sweetie- I had a glass of wine tonight so maybe like doudat's friend it will help her sleep through it.

On another note I 'whipped up' some embellished prefolds and some nursing pads for a friend tonight. (Hence the wine, I like to drink and sew ). I really like sewing at night, it cuts my time on here, but I guess that's ok. So far I've made double sided flannel wipes, an apron (for painting), cropped Eva's onsies we never use, and embellished 6 prefolds and now the nursing pads. Yay! I'm terrible, but it's fun.

Hi Mamas!!!

I haven't posted on mothering toooo much...but I just wanted some place to come to brag a little!

My daughter Addison has started to sign for milk!! YAH YAH YAH!!! I am SO happy!! She does it at the right times too!!! It's SOO cute! She also has this TOTAL look of being SO proud of herself. I could just melt every time!!

Anyway...just thought I'd pop in since I've been lurking again for a while!! DD is with daddy playing in the living room so I get a little break.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend everyone!!

I was wondering when people were going to start signing to their LOs. That is so cool she signed for milk! Do you do the sign for milking a cow? I didn't like that for ds1 so I made up my own. Is there a BFing sign? Queen-you are going to have to post pics of your work to inspire us!

Trying to keep up without internet is difficult! The baby's OLPC has internet for now but I'm not used to it yet.
I looked up the weight chart for breastfed babies and Ion's on the low end of normal on that.
Aaaaaaaaaaand.....he took some steps 2 days ago! 2 1/2 steps walking toward his own reflection and 3 steps a few hours later. Nothing since and that's okay by me but his poor dad is sad he missed it.
We went to see the movie Juno tonight and it was excellent.
