You would not believe what I just went through. All this Christmas music talk made me want to listen to the Barenaked Ladies Holiday album. So I went to the rack where we keep the CDs - not there. Hmm. Look again. Not there. Hmm. There really isn't anywhere else we would keep something like this. I check the CD rack again, and I see that all of our other holiday albums are appropriately filed in alphabetical order (this is DH's thing, and I just pretend they are in there randomly because his alphabetization scheme is so truly bizarre). But anyway all the holiday music is there, it's not hiding in the basement. I check the stacks of CD cases that aren't in the rack. I'm starting to obsess. I call DH, he says he's sure he saw it recently while looking for something else. Says it definitely is not in his car. But I can't find it anywhere. I scoured the "guest room" aka "random stuff repository" where we used to keep the CDs. Not there. (Plenty of interesting stuff in there, though - note to self, go through that room next time you have some "free time".) At this point, I am on a serious mission. I go through every single CD, open each case, file them alphabetically by DH's scheme. The good news is that our CDs are much more organized than they were. But I STILL CAN'T FIND IT. Finally in desperation, I go out to the van, knowing it isn't there because we took all the non-kid CD's out of there long ago. But I am obsessed, I have to look. I check under the seat, not there. Check the other CD-hiding location, as I suspected, there are two cases there, both toddler songs. I opened "Toddler Favorites" and FOUND THE CD I WAS LOOKING FOR!!!!! In the car, in the wrong case?

But I still haven't seen the jewel case.

Thanks for listening. Now I have to go tend to the kids I've ignored for the last hour while searching.

MissJuice - hilarious! I have those kind of things happen around here all the time. Right now we are all searching for dh's winter gloves and hat. We can not find them for the life of us...it is infuriating! :

Ya'll have been busy chatting it up today. I had to take ds to the dentist. He has a cavity. He sat for xrays and thankfully it's just one. We have an appointment for a stainless crown at the end of January. That gives me plenty of time to research and decide if that's what I want to do. I really liked this pediatric dentist. He was very cool with the kids. It sucks that it got so bad in such a short time. He had his teeth cleaned five months ago! They said it started between the teeth and then caved in, so that's why it looks so awful. At least it's a baby tooth and won't be a permanent crown.

I missed out on the music discussion. I haven't bought a new cd in ages. I either listen to the radio or online. I like nearly any kind of music. I grew up in the south, so of course country has always been a favorite since high school. Then we can't forget the 80s music. Lately I really enjoy alternative Christian music. I need all the inspiration I can get. When I was a kid, my dad always played in different bands. He played guitar. So there was always music playing in the house. Then we lived in Indianapolis when MTV came out and it was one of the first cities to have it. So I'd come home from Brownies meetings and turn on MTV. Yeah, in elementary school Now I wouldn't let my elementary school aged kids come within a 100 mile radius of MTV. Gosh I'm old.

As far as our retreat goes, family could come. I imagine my dh would pout a lot if I tried to go alone So long as we have some girls nights out. Maybe even a slumber party .

ETA: Juice, I just saw your post and thought my message needed one more

The above made me giggle. I am so glad you found it! It's always in the last place you look.

"free time" is worthy of quotation marks.

Aidan does the lower and lower things too after a while! He is always grabbing at his feet too which doesn't help! Happy birthday to your dd! Glad you didn't forget...

Jessica - great story! So glad you found it!

Tanya - when we were kids, MTV actually had *videos*.

: I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sure it's not easy seeing her b-day coming soon.

Here is what i wrote on one of my boards about dd1's coming b-day.

Quote:
DD1's birthday. I can't beleive that she will be 4 yrs old. She's no longer my baby.

She's a sweet child, lovely spirit. She's sensitive, caring, loves to laugh, shy with stranger but warm up real fast(too fast for me). She loves to ask questions now that she can speak more, using her words. She loves to tease too and bug her sister. She loves cuddles, hugs and kisses. She'll help when we ask her to. She also gets easily distracted. That can drive me batty at times. She is also becoming more independant as time goes by.

She loves being with her sisters. She takes care of them when we ask her to and sometimes even if we didn't ask. She loves being with her gramma.

Her favorite food are spaghetti, pizza, veggies and fruits. She mostly eat anything but in small quantities.

Just want to share this with you.

I teach school and took the first 5 weeks off and now my dh (who had more sick leave built up) will be staying home until March. I bf and am loving it even though it makes me a tired mama! So that's a little bit about me. Looking forward to getting to know all of you.
Welcome!

Nutcracker = Christmas to me. It was always just my mom and I and it was kind of a small event, so to jolly up the holidays we'd go see a matinee of the Nutcracker, and then go have a nice dinner

Also *loving* Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Very awesome classical music with a touch of rock. It's very christmasy

He naps too frequently to start staying home for "naptime," so what to do? I'm not actually going to do it, but I find myself wishing I could give him solids so he could get a belly full when we're out. I guess I could try breastmilk in a sippy or something.
Right there with you. I've starting nursing Rachel in the sling and/or throwing something over her head while she's nursing. I feel like the worst lactivist but she is sooooooooooo nosy and I just can't deal with the constant popping off or worse yet, craning her neck around to see various things well still latched (can we say The Incredible Stretchable Nipple?)

He is just very headstrong and very active. I don't have time to read the "Raising Your Spirited Child" book...I don't know that anyone with a spirited child has time to read this book (or any book for that reason...including the good book
Anyway, I'll take any suggestions...(
Congrats on your DH's job!!!

I too have a VERY sassy almost-three-year-old. ARGH!
We are having a rough couple of weeks here, complete with potty regression. My main objective is to NOT YELL. Spanking is totally off the list but for some reason yelling seems to happen quite frequently : I find the more we yell/ send DD to her room the less cooperative she is. When I give her time, accomodate her a little, try to find mutually agreeable solutions, and most of all, stay calm... she does so much better. Any anger on our part just seems to feed the tantrum. Anyway s and :guhs to you, I am just trying to take this day by day.

well, that's usually true for me. Last night I tried taking him OUT to the car for a nurse but he was more interested in the sign on the side of the restaurant. Sigh....

In interesting (but very odd) news, K has been getting sleepy and not dropping off at the breast, fidgeting etc, so I've been putting him on the bed with a pacifier and going to the next room to watch tv and see what he does. Well, he goes to sleep! WTH? We'll see if this lasts...

What about when you're out for longer than she goes between nursing? We definitely leave the house dry and fed, but that wears off...

Hello again!

"I've been gone so long
that absolutely nothing has changed"

(Yuri Andrukovych poem, my translation!)

I've been in allergy hell, not a wink of sleep all night for 7 nights, unbearable itching. now dr is suggesting a break to take medication. I'm carrying on trying everything under the sun. Refuse to do that!

for now just hi to all, maria, hope you're feeling well again now, sounds scary...

Do you know what the name of the medication is? I can look and see if it's in my Medications and Mothers Milk book. Every nursing mother should have this book, or at least know someone who does.

Hey ladies, what kind of diaper bags are you carrying? Anybody got a great cheapy diaper bag they can recommend? I need something. I am carrying around the hospital freeby. I tried my dh's messenger style napsack. It's great for carrying, but stinks getting stuff in and out.

Jessica, mama to Emma, 7, Mattie, 5.5 and Lilly, 3 and someone new this Halloween-ish.

I the Nutcracker. I used to go every year for my birthday. The National Ballet of Canada's resident choreographer (James Kudelka) does a really nice job of the Nutcracker -- it's even more fun and colourful than the versions I remember from my childhood. Since DH falls asleep at the ballet, I tend to go less often now, though. It's a lot of money to spend on a nap. (In his defense, they do have very comfortable seats.)

Giant backpack. At least three sections - big section, change of clothes and diapers. Middle section, my stuff plus important smaller things like paci and bibs. Small section, wallet, camera, phone, keys, lip balm blah blah blah...

I did this very thing with DD1, and it actually worked. When things would start to get difficult, I could remind DD that I was working on not yelling and I needed her to work on listening/responding/doing whatever. Sometimes it still is tough, but it's really made a difference. I think she appreciates the "team effort" and it helps calm both of us down. Keep us posted!

Eastern time zone here, too...

Sarenka I am so so sorry you're having such a difficult time.

We have a bunch of single gloves from the kids last winter! I have no idea where the matches could be. I've given up looking for the missing ones and I think we'll just dig out the craft supplies and have fun making glove puppets.

I LOVE that you use sposies, Cori. I don't feel so alone using them too! Logan has been scooting off his baby gym and rolling like crazy! He doesn't stay put at all anymore.

Kimya, I'd love a CD too, if you don't mind. I'd love to have something to listen to other than Hillary Duff and Silly Songs!

Since DH falls asleep at the ballet, I tend to go less often now, though. It's a lot of money to spend on a nap. (In his defense, they do have very comfortable seats.)[/QUOTE]


I love the Nutcracker too. My girls' Brownies troop leader got all of us free tickets to see it on Dec 10. Logan will be staying with daddy and I'll take the three girls to see it. We can't wait!

I'm not even going to attempt to catch up! It seems like when I'm able to be online, no one else is, but when I'm away everyone sneaks on and writes a book.

Christmas to me is the Nutcracker too! I grew up taking ballet classes and I was in it twice. DH even likes to go to it! Can you believe he likes ballet, classical music, and musicals (and isn't gay! ). I also love Christmas hymns ... at midnight mass (and yes, I really mean church!).

Maria, how are you recovering from your low blood sugar attack? Sounds scary. I'm glad your DH was there to help you out.

Kim, to you, Emma, and the rest of your family. I think that losing a child would have to be one of the hardest things to have to get through.

I 2nd the backpack idea for a diaper bag ... so easy to carry too.

As for all this rolling over, sitting up, and other developmental milestones, I think DS is slow to catch on because he's so big. Should I be concerned that he doesn't roll over, he can't push his upper torso off the floor when he's on his belly, and he doesn't even beging to sit on his own? He's 5 months and 1 week old and weighs somewhere around 25 lbs ... yeah, he's big. I know babes develop at different rates, but DS seems a bit slower than most. Not that I'm in a hurry for DS to move!

My mil made me 2 great diaper bags. I don't need 2, why don't you pm me your info and I will send you the other one she made me. It is a black denim with green flannel inside with lambs on it. It's got 2 outside pockets, and a big inside pocket and 2 zippered pouches that you can take out if you need to. I love it so much. Very nice and quite fashionable too LMK

Kim, Mama to 4 and 1 more on the way!
