Thanks. The school was lovely and I really liked it, but unfortunately it is a little out of our price range right now. I’m going to see about maybe finding a better job. If I’ve gotta’ work anyway, I might as well be providing my son with the things I want him to have, right?Ishy
DS went swimming in a real pool this weekend for the first time too and loved it. We went with a friend and I gave DS’ friend his first blueberries as well which were quickly gobbled up by our lil’ ones. Funny how kids love those! As for your question about meals, DS usually does eat traditional meals but that’s pretty much because he goes to daycare and that’s the way they’re structured. He gets yogurt and some cheerios for breakfast, usually pasta or soup and some fruit for lunch, and some sort of protein like chicken or scrambled eggs and a veggie if I can get it in him for lunch. Hope that helps!Mommajb
: about Linus and the duplo. That’s too funny.Michelle
Thanks for the
. I appreciate it so much. I don’t know how people can be like that either, especially when it comes to children. IDK if that woman has kids, but I would think a mother would especially get it that nothing in the world is more important than your child’s wellbeing.Katie
OMG I’m so sorry about your keys and the assignment. How frustrating. Sunshine
Oh sweet mama, I’m so sorry. I hope things look up soon. Please take care of YOU in all this mess.
for you and your girls!! Keep thinking of Jess…she’ll help you. She’s amazing even now that she’s not on this earthly plane. I was just telling DH if we lived near you I’d have DS with you in a heartbeat…how funny is that you posted the same thing
to you!! BTW your photo vomit was just beautiful…never thought I’d be the one to coin a phrase around here!Katie

to Ru for her boo boo. Poor baby! I hate when they fall like that.Forestrymom
What a happy little guy you have there! Thanks for sharing Lactivist
I’m so sorry you’re feeling grumpy. I’m with you on that. It is always something. At least its your kids making noise and not your DH – I could forgive a child
Hi mamas! Sorry I’ve been so absent lately. Just not feelin’ like sharin’ lately I guess. Kind of in one of those funks…sorry.Daycare
So I went on Thursday last week to the daycare I mentioned to take a tour since DS and I were both home sick. It was really nice, the director was super professional, and the tour was wonderful. They even provide well-balanced meals. I would have had to chat with them on the lack of organic food and abundance of processed stuff, but I figured I’d cross that bridge if and when we got there. I talked to DH about it when I got home, but he saw the $$ and that was the end of the discussion. It would be an extra $200+ a month for us and while we “could” do it, it would be super tight. They charge a 5-day rate only whether or not you’re there for 5 days so the cost increase is substantial. I’m pretty bummed out about it and have not given up all hope that this center is out of our league completely. I came home, had an argument with him about it, pouted for a day and then revamped my resume on Careerbuilder and Monster. I can do this. I know I can. I am definitely worth more $$ so if I can make it, DS can go to a better school.Sickness
I am sick of the sickies – BIG time. I am still sick. DS is long over it, but I am still really sick and refusing to go to the doc because I will NOT go on another antibiotic after the yeast infection from hell after my mastitis a couple weeks ago. I just won’t – I can’t. I cry just thinking about it. I am improving every day so I figure I just have to be patient and keep up the vitamin C, right?LWAB
We spent the weekend with a friend of mine and had a wonderful time. Saturday we had her DS’ first birthday party and her DS and mine were in the kiddie pool in their birthday suits!! It was so adorable and then we did put swim diapers on them because we were worried that all the weird food they’d eaten at the party might just make its way out in the relaxing pool water ykwim?
They were so cute though. Then Sunday we decided to keep the party going and headed over to my IL’s house (they have an in ground pool). DS, DH, me, my friend, her 2 DS’ and her DP all hung out for a few hours in the pool and sat around and chatted. DH and I are so antisocial (especially when it is one of “my friends”) so this was just wonderful. Again her DS and mine were just cuter than can be – splashing, squealing, sharing food. It was a wonderful, wonderful weekend and I needed it SO badly. DS is finally sleeping through the night (don’t hate me please) but he is now 12 months and 3 weeks old, so it took us over a year to get there. He’s only been doing it for a week so I am probably going to eat these words!! He got over the nasty stomach bug he had and is now cutting his lateral incisors on the bottom – yay
…I’m so done with teething!! And to top it all off he is pretty much refusing my right breast. WTF? I am SO lopsided when I wake up in the morning or get really full. This is so not cool!!NIP
DS has never been a bit NIPer because he’s always been so concerned with everything going on around him. I’ll do it, but rarely. He’s really easily distracted – no one can talk, the TV has to be off, no strange sounds – it’s ridiculous. I did it at the beach and do it in our backyard all the time, but that’s pretty much the extent of it. Forget covering his head – he totally freaks and then leaves me hanging out for the world to see until he’s done having a fit.
to you all…I think those are all the words I can muster.
