My sling was a hand-me-down, so I have no idea how old it actually was. The fabric actually held up for quite a while..

BeanBean likes ponytails, too; they keep his hair out of his eyes and that's all good.

MDC is not only crawling really freaking slowly, it's also causing me to disconnect from the internet every few minutes. : How very irritating!

we just woke up and our world is covered by a blanket of soft white snow... the flakes falling are fat and there seems to be no end in sight. i love the snow! elwynn wants to build a "gnome man" as he calls snow man.. he is in a sad mood today so i should go snuggle him.

talk to you mommas later.

We have lots of snow. Been stuck inside for 2 days. Well, actually, I had to go out to clean my car off and move it. I live in an apt complex and they make us move our cars by 10am when it snows. So, I told them they had to watch my son while I went outside. rofl.

I must say that I don't like winter. heh. Am wondering where the perfect place to live is. No colder than 50, not hotter than 80. Ahh, perfect.

Oh, ds woke up from his nap and I swear he grew a whole inch in two hours. rofl.

Ciao for now,

is there such a perfect place? maybe florida..no wait tropical storms... it rarely snows here.. i guess thats why it feels so nice. eveything looks prettier with snow on it..even the ugliest city looks lovely when it snows.

as for your child growing while napping..im sure elwynn does this too..!

I wasn't approved for the MSN group last time I checked... though I haven't checked today.

Miss BooBah goes to sleep sometimes and wakes up bigger, and I can remember BeanBean doing it when he was small, too. I remember one time I put him to sleep and all of his clothing fit him just fine, and when he woke up in the morning it was all too small, right down to the diaper! He had red marks all over his body from where the clothing had been too tight, and his shirt was really hard to get off when it had gone one easily. I learned my lesson, though, and I try very hard not to put BooBah to bed in anything that's even close!

So I had Mike take "It's Perfectly Normal" out of the library for ChibiChibi. She says that the book is very interesting and also "totally not normal! It's not normal to show penises and vaginas in books!" : Must be nice to be seven sometimes. :LOL

MDC is S-L-O-W today, and very irriitating...

I'm sorry I have been MIA the past few days, and I finally approved everyone for the msn group who hadn't been approved yet. We have all the regulars except casina and *solsticemama*, and I approved one member who we don't know yet- I'm sorry I forgot her name, she's the Frenchy Canadian...
I think the msn group should be used when we want to say something personal, or when MDC is down, or really slow, or whenever you feel like it. If you don't want to use it, you don't have to, this group should stay up and running forever and ever.

The laundry is piling up here, even though I've been doing some every day... I HATE laundry, and that's my job (DH's is unloading and loading the dishwasher). It's been raining and raining here the past few days (we get rain in the desert insetad of snow) so we have mud and dirt and yucky stuff tracked through our house from the dogs and kids... I hate sweeping and vaccuming too... :LOL I'm feeling down today for some reason, and the kids are really picking up on it 'cause they're whiney and agitated too. I'm going to head out to Curves, cook a nice chicken soup, and re-pot something to brighten my mood!

About TV: I let my kids watch it. : Mostly they watch PBS (Caillou, Reading Rainbow, Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers, Thomas and Freinds) but I'll put Disney on ocassionally for Stanley, The Wiggles or Bear in the Big Blue House. Zachary has a thing for planes so he likes the Koala Brothers sometimes too. Mostly they watch videos over and over and OVER again. And I know it's not good to have it on as background noise, but they mostly play with the TV on in the background... They usually watch in the AM while I'm getting Crystal ready for school, and in the evening to wind down before bed. I think it's ok for them to have their favorite characters- they're changing all the time. I think *I* need to watch less TV, but I'm not worried about the kiddos just yet. I need to be a good influence on them!

And that gets me thinking about cussing... I admit that when I'm angy I have a potty mouth. Zachary is now saying "shub up!" every now and then. I'm worried he'll pick up something worse, so I am REALLY trying to say "nice words".

Talk to you later, ladies!

today has been a weird day.. yesterday elwynn's dad and i hade a huge fight, including physical violence, so..needless to say our relationship is over. he is gone, but wants to come get his stuff.. i dont want to see him and i sure dont want elwynn seeing him. it was really traumatic for both of us..im still shaken up about it.

anyways, ive finally got the house cleaned up and dipers washed so i feel better about that. its still snowing and i tried to take elwynn out to play but he said he was cold and cried, so in we came. he is watching cartoons i want to out but it means getting elwynn all bundled up and walking in snow drifts and getting all soggy, so i think we will have a quiet at home day and try to figure stuff out.

why does life always have to be so friggin hard?

anyway, please be gentle w/ yourself, but not w/ your boundries w/ you ex.
big hugs to you......

As you all know, fern's partner is my brother, so this is a personal issue for me too. I do know that there are two sides to every story, though, and I don't think it's right to not let tim see elwynn because of what happened. It's never a good idea to use children as pawns.
I've fought a lot of (physical)fights with my bro when we were kids, so I know how he can be.
So sorry fern, that you are going through this.

, for Elwynn, who probably doesn't "get it" really well right now.

I've had a very long day. BeanBean was extra spirited today, and I worked really hard to calm myself down but I didn't do all that well. I did make a good effort, I just really think I should have done better. At any rate, he finally went to sleep tonight shortly after 2 am. I'm not proud of myself, but I smoked a clove today in an effort to calm myself. It worked, I felt a lot better afterwards, and of course I smoked outside (my niece would have a heart attack if she saw me smoking, even a clove!) and away from the kids. *sigh* I'm working on it.

I took the kids to services tonight. It was... an experience. :LOL

i woke up super early today and felt weird. i made a cup of tea and just wated the wind blow everything around. i keel like thats whats going on in me and im just going to have to weather the storm till things settle and i figgure out what to do..

im applying to a bunch of housing co-ops in vancouver.. maybe if i get accepted to one ill move there..i feel like mission (where i am) doesnt have much for me.. i like it here, but im lonely.

anyways today elwynn and i are going to take the bus to the next twon over and go for an adventure.. im not sure what we are going to find, but it will keep us busy anyways.. elwynn likes buses. he calls them all "school bus"

LOL LOL Frenchy Canadian. :LOL :LOL Hey i now have a new nickname. Thanks


Mamafern ~ Sorry for what you are going thru. It must be hard. I hope things get better for you.

Mamajaza ~ it must be hard on you too. It not easy to be relate to someone who is seperating/leaving from his family.


Dd1-Jasmine is not in a great mood this past few days. She moody. Just what I need, Me and her in a similar mood. I'm moody because I don't get enough sleep but her, I don't know. It's probably her teeth. She's missing her eye teeth and maybe more molars. How many molars are they suppose to have now???

I just got an idea so that you guys can get to know me more. Ask me any questions. i'll answer most of them lol lol

How is everyone today???

Rachel, I didn't mean to exclude you in my last post. Here's a link, I hope it works. http://groups.msn.com/NovDec2002Fami..._whatsnew.msnw
How are you healing mama? Keeping yourself busy with family and Cloth Etc., no doubt.

Fern, I don't know what to say... I was so surprised to hear the news about you and your DP. How sad for you. And Elwynn, and Timothy too... Please know that we're here for you, even if it's not IRL.

I have two brothers and I fought with them a lot when I was younger, but it would never be OK for them to try and hurt my sisters in-law. Everyone's relationship is their own business, though. I can see it from both your points of view, Fern and Jasanna. I hope this situation doesn't come between the both of you...

Sarah- have fun in Spokane! And tell Lynn for me, if you remember. I met two MDC mamas in Spokane this summer, and they were both very nice- we grilled BBQ ribs and corn on the cob and S'mores. It was 95 degrees up there (which feels like 110 to me, with the moisture in the air) and I was wearing a long, light flowing skirt and a bee stung me on the butt. :LOL I don't remember the mamas' names but their boys were Alex (younger than Razi) and Avian (older than Razi) and Zachary had fun playing with them.

I've been cooking up a storm here, trying to stay busy so that these clouds don't depress me. Hope all you mamas are doing well today.

Hey mamas, hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

Jasanna, I was thinking about you last night, I know that the situation between Fern and Timothy must be hard for you as well I hope that you can all find peace and healing eventually.

dh and a very dear friend of ours are out back right now building a swing set. Yup building it from scratch, they bought the swings and slide adn stuff and it comes with directions on how to build the frame and all. I'll take pics when they are done.

I'm feeling very down today. One of our very best friends is being deployed to Iraq tonight We've known it was coming but still.... I talked with him this morning and it was just so hard. He and my dh have been best friends since they were fourteen or fifteen and I have known him almost ten years myself.

Well I had a lot more to say, but dd is freaking out so

Anyhow, so like I was saying...Our friend Martin that is going to Iraq. He has a wife and a son who will be four in March. He just got back from Korea last march so he hasn't even been home a year yet. It just breaks my heart how much he is missing out on in his son's life. He is such a good daddy, and now he will be gone at least another year. He joined the army to get money for college (his dream is to be a special education teacher) and has only been able to take a few classes because he is gone so much. anyhow, my heart hurts today

thanks for letting me talk about it.....
