I came here to say

: :

So I wouldn't say it to my ds. I just found cobalt blue sharpie on my couch in two places. I left him at the table doing his homework while I put the dd's down for a nap. I was gone 5-10 minutes at the most. He had the sharpie because he has to write his name and the letter of the week on his baggie. There are two different spots on my couch. I'll try, but they'll probably never come out. I'm going to go visit that sharpie/couch thread and see if anyone posted tips on getting the stain out. He's five years old. He knows better. He was crying and very upset that I found it. I held it together and did not yell, even though I was inside. These kids are going to make me re-cover my furniture sooner than I want to.

sorry bout the couch Tanya

Miss Juice - I meant to say I had a "something has to change" moment and I ended up putting a lock on the kids toy cupboard. It's all locked away and they have to come and talk to me if they want something out of it. Sounds mean but they can have something else when they put what they were playing with back. IT's bliss........ the house is not as cluttered and I feel like I have some control. I was losing it with them cos there were toys everywhere and I couldn't keep the toys under control - don't get me wrong my house is messy. But I mean you couldn't see their bedroom floor for toys and they just pulled everything out and nothing went back KWIM?:

anyway that really has helped me and the kids like it better cos their toys are all together in boxes and they can get a new box out when the old one goes back

I think time on the couch with TV, trashy books, whatever are all entirely appropriate when sick.

:guh and

We got a new couch when we got married and I remember when we were picking it I loved the look of the cream or white couches. I talked to my mom about it, who asked, "Are you planning to have kids in the next ten years or so?" I told her probably yes, and she said, "Get a couch the colour of dirt." We have a brown couch.

awww, that stinks. I know there's a sharpie remedy out there. My oldest took a scissor to lots of valuable things on two different occasions when he was 5. I think the impulse control is just not totally there. Good luck!

So here's a question -- how is your babe's breath? Mine was always sweet and milky and lately it has become kind of cheesy and a little gross. Not horrible, just not so nice. Is this a bad sign or a normal part of development (e.g. changes towards gut readiness for solids)?

We haven't had any major dietary changes, although we did just receive our annual crate of 40 lbs of grapefruit (fundraising venture for our neighbours' daughter's choir) so I've been having more citrus than usual.

Maria~ It could be the grapefruit as it could be the teething(is he?). I don't think it's anything to worry about.

I was wondering, Does anyone want to chat?? We could use the mommychat site or yahoo if everyone has YIM. We could also plan a date and time to chat. Think about it.

Samuel has been smelling really sour latelly. He's been teething like crazy and puking a lot so he gets real sour "taste" to him now.

sandrine - chatting would be fun! The best time for me is early morning like 6:30 or mid-day, 1:30, or later night like now - 9-11. I'm in OH so that's Eastern time.

Chatting would be fun. It may be hard to get everyone in at the same time. I'm up for giving it a try, though. Mid-day or later night would work better for me. 6:30 eastern just makes me : I'm on central time. And not a morning person.

I read up on all the remedies for Sharpie on the other thread. I'm going to try alcohol first. Then probably magic eraser. Guess my couch should've been bright blue. I bought one the color of dirt. And with sturdy fabric. Ds covered one mark on the back of the couch with a car, and strategically placed another pillow over the other mark. We told dh at dinner and ds ran off crying and hid in the closet. He was so upset when I saw it. I think you're right, Amy. He had no impulse control, and his reaction showed us how sorry he was he had done it. He's been doing destructive things like that lately. Tearing the wallpaper in dd's room, writing letters on the wall, etc. Frustrating, because I'll let him craft up a storm in the kitchen and just clean it up when he's done. Any tips, mama to four boys?

Hmm, now that you mention it Rachel was pretty cheesy today. I haven't had dairy so I don't know what was doing it. She spit up a bunch yesterday and today though.

Is he getting a cold? My toddler's breath is when she's sick with a cold (like now.. blech)

Like since I don't have the time and free hands to fold all this d@mn laundry, I have to pick through baskets looking for matching socks for my kids. And since I don't have the time and free hands to fold my diapers and get them put away (they're clean!) I grab a sposie and then we have a poop blowout and have to change the baby before we can get in the car to take the kids to school, and meanwhile the toddler has taken OFF her hat and gloves, and so on and so forth. I multitask every single minute of the day. I swear, if I have to go to the bathroom I am looking for something to take with me so that won't be wasted time. My house is complete and total chaos, my office paperwork is backed up, I'm paying the mortgage late. I am heading for a nervous breakdown, or a physical one, really soon if I don't watch out.

And my mother, bless her, is taking my brother to the Bahamas for a week for Christmas. Because they're very stressed and they need to sit down for a week. (he just moved in with her and is, as far as I know, not employed.)

Well I have squandered another half hour. But I'm nursing the baby at the same time, so it's not like I could have been folding laundry anyway.
about your brother.
I am so sorry honey. I can so totally relate, yet your plate is waaay more full than mine--I sure wish I could do more than offer words of empathy.

Reading on...I see the chaos has gone down. *kiss kiss* to you.

Wintersong--Kim, that is lovely. I know that song means a lot to Maria too.

Kimya--yeegads on that bite, that is NASTY!! What a horrible thing! I hope it starts a-healin' right quick.

: argh, I keep writing posts and they get lost in cyberspace. I don't even know what I've said and haven't. Kimya, did I tell you I got bit by a brown recluse? Yeah, then I made my fun joke about how it bites.

Cheesy breath?? Nope, not yet. I am glad that A isn't teething yet. She is just such a funny girl and I love the gummy smile We need a gummy smile smilie.

Ok, why does my daughter INSIST on staying awake until midnight?? I am exhausted, but she is nowhere near ready for bed yet. Silly girl.

Um...I can't think of anything else...oh wait, Tanya, sorry about your couch, I would have been LIVID too!!! Why do we buy anything nice if we want to be parents??

Oh yeah, and i would LOVE to chat with you girlies! Let me know when and where and I'll try my best to be there

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

I can't wait to show you what my girlie can do. Uploading pics now. Link to come.

Tanya, my dh used to e a carpet cleaner and will know what to do about your couch. What kind of material is it?

Okay, so this is hard to say, but I gotta tell somebody. I just found a link for some porn on my history thingy at the top. I'm feeling really insecure and upset about it. I don't think I can mention it to dh because it won't be a conversation that goes well. *Sigh* It sucks.

we are baby party central, though, until 3 or 4 or 5 a.m. every night. does that count? : tonight we tried the whole bath, bed, nurse thing. it took about an hour, but he fell right to sleep! for twenty minutes. i'm not sure this is an acceptable return on investment.

No, there were multiple pages. And words in the search bar. Like when I go to search for nursing tops and the list pulls up naked and other things as previous options. YKWIM by the list? So no accident. I guess it's not a big deal. I'm just feeling unattractive and this doesn't help. It's also something I really want not in the house since we're parents and all. That's not a judgement on other parents.

JessicaJoy I've been there. Repeatedly, actually. I finally got my message through. If he wants to look at that stuff he gets a laptop and does it there. That's a matter of him respecting you and the kids in the house. If you feel it's a big deal then it is.
And you know really, it's not about you being unattractive, don't you...

God I've been away so long, in the land of guests, people people people, I keep forgetting I'm an introvert and it actually really takes it out of me having people around all the time, particularly loud, interesting types!!
In the meantime it's all been happening, car accidents, spider bites, illnesses, big -guhs to everyone, and especially to Kim, the song brought tears to my eyes. And that's good.

JessicaJoy ~ , but please do get over it very quickly! Seriously! Do not ever take these things personally. Please don't : me. It's just the thruth about men and porn. We have 2 computers and I know my DH visits those sites very regulary on his one's. And I understand since I am not really into the whole sex thing these days, he needs to release somehow You have to learn to just wave your hand at it and move on.
Speaking of the porn though, my 19 year old brother just sent me this link today. It's so true and sooo funny. Every guy out there will confirm this to you. Watch it and have a good laugh about it http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...43841227974645

Hugs to everyone this morning.

Yesterday I went out and did what I do when I'm starting to lose my mind: I bought a notebook. There's something about a new, blank notebook that just calms me down. I got a bunch of stuff written down, not a plan per se but just things that have been racing around in my head. I feel much better. Definitely an acceptable return on a very small investment.

So much to say, so little time!
Tanya, I've noticed my DD1 does the same kinds of things - no impulse control stuff. If I don't yell at her, she's much more remorseful.
JJoy - Pav is right. It's hard to believe, but it doesn't mean anything about you. You still don't have to like it, but try not to take it personally. And I would talk to him - but that's me. He should know how it makes you feel.

what, tanya? you don't want to get up at 4am to talk to us?? :

Tips - well, my oldest and my 2yo are the impulsive ones, and so far my only tips are 1. waiting, 2. not acquiring things I will be very sad to lose, and 3. limiting access. For a while, he couldn't use scissors unless I was there with him. Ftmp, he kept the craftiness in the right spot - he's always been crafty and still does lots of art. I don't think it will happen to you much more. He only did the cutting thing 2-3 times (but it was dh's ties, dress shirts and a really nice king size duvet cover )

Btdt... I'm sorry. There is a lot of debate about it. Is it cheating? I don't know. We have had a very long difficult road wrt bible study and the p@rn was just one small aspect. At this point, we are basically happy - I don't feel pressure to read scripture and (I think but am not sure) he feels free to get online and use the internet the way it was intended very funny video, yinyang, btw, although I'm not sure I would have felt it was funny 5 years ago.

So yesterday I ran and got the Ledum and the Apis and took them along with abx, vit c, echinacea, probiotics, GSE, cod liver oil, and arnica. Me, DH, Panda and our friend Matt went to Chuck E. Cheese for like 3 hours and played Skee Ball to keep my mind off of my leg. When I got home I washed it with tea tree soap and dabbed on a little lavender EO and Rescue Remedy. So far this morning there is no throbbing, but we will see. Thanks everyone!
I better get back to

Look what my baby girl can do. And she just turned 5 months old. Somebody please slow this down a little.

Here are Mattie's spots. And a shot of her vitiligo. It's hard to get a good shot of it. Well, I gotta go for now. Thanks for the advice.

Here are Mattie's spots. And a shot of her vitiligo. It's hard to get a good shot of it. Well, I gotta go for now. Thanks for the advice.
Whoa! Is she CRAWLING already????

Not much new going on here. I had two decent nights of sleep (I actually got 3.5 hours in a row) and wanted to post about it, but feared I would jinx it. Well, I was jinxed anyway. Last night was HORRID - I'm talking not sleeping more than 30 minutes! And dh couldn't help because he has ds1's illness and I didn't want him anywhere near the baby...: : : It will be a miracle if emergen-c can keep my non-existent immune system up enough to fight off that illness... oy.

Well,

Let start with dd1 teacher-parent meeting. It went well, DD1 has done lots of progress. She is now talking in class and at circle time, since end of oct. That's in it's self is a success. She's extremely shy. We need to work on quite a few things but the school will also work with her. Things like how to hold a pencil, how to hold and work a pair of scissors. She needs help in knowing her number 1,2 3. She has a hard time remembering them. She also needs help writing her name. Oh, and puzzles how to work with a 15pieces puzzles.

So i guess we will work with her on the wkends and this upcoming holiday.

This morning, we, dd1 and I, went to see her speech therapist for a re-evaluation of her speech. We only did the first part before she began to lose interest. Normal for a just turn 4yrs old. She did great and even amazed the therapist. She is talking way more and is even talking to strangers. We did see a few things that needs to be improve but she's getting better, so sure.

Yesterday, dd2 went to daycare for her first day. I'm putting her there for one day a wk just so that she can have friends and be busy for one day. She misses her big sister alot almost to the point of being down some days. She did great. She didn't really want to come home with me. lol I'm glad she did great. It was so different and so nice to only have dd3 to care for. I was able to go buy all the x-mas presents and x-mas stocking stuffers. Next wk, i'm coming back home and just sleeping the day away. Or maybe i should start wrapping presents.

I want to say thank you to our federal gouv't for providing 100$/mth. DD2 will be able to do to daycare. I still need to pay a bit but at least it's not the full amt.

Kimya~ I'm glad that it's not throbbing no more. Sending healing towards your leg.~~~

Jjoy~ WOW!!! Can she talk to dd3 and get her to atleast sit up by herself. not crawling yet but just sit. WTG Mattie!!!

Amy~ I"m not even up at 6am EST. It's too early. I'm also not a morning person. Anytime after 8am, i'm good.

JJuice~ I hope today is better than yesterday. It's a good idea about having a book to write everything and write down lists. I write down lists on a piece of paper then forget to bring that piece of paper to do what i need to do.

About porn. At first it bug me but then we talked. I still don't like it but it kinda help when he's pushy for some and i so don't want ot hear the word s@x.

Cori~ Sorry to hear about the bad night. Just remember that it will pass. It does get better or we get used to it. , not sure. DD1 slept thru the night 3x at the end of last wk and now she waking up again.

Quagmire~ How your dd??

Tanya~ I hope you feel better today and that you are having fun at the LLL potluck.

Tanya, my dh used to e a carpet cleaner and will know what to do about your couch. What kind of material is it?

Okay, so this is hard to say, but I gotta tell somebody. I just found a link for some porn on my history thingy at the top. I'm feeling really insecure and upset about it. I don't think I can mention it to dh because it won't be a conversation that goes well. *Sigh* It sucks.
Crawling???? They are just moving way to fast. I want to freeze this time right here. It's so much fun. Gummy grins, full body laughs and they're pretty compliant at this age, too.

The fabric is cotton. It's a sturdy fabric (selected on purpose).

Porn. Well, we've been there, too. I know it's something men do, and that I can live with. When it got to be frequent porn, I said something to him about how it made me feel. I think there's a fine line between an addiction to, or even just too frequent use of porn and normal behavior of men. Let him know how it makes you feel, and if he's going to do it then it's his responsibility to make sure you don't see that he's doing it. Have him download a cookie cleaner or something. You have to decide what level of it you're comfortable with, if any at all. Communication is key!

I love you guys, but, nope. I don't function before 7am. Central.

Maria, I think I met you at the LLL meeting today. Her baby was three weeks old. She had done everything right. She took Bradley classes, she had the "best" doctors for a natural birth. She was also diabetic. She went to 42 weeks before agreeing to induction (these docs really are the most patient and respectful...they were my shadow care). Induction went over 24 hours. She pushed for 2 hours. Then a c/s under general anesthesia. We were both crying. I felt like I was looking into your eyes. I don't know what's going on with me. I read your story, and it's just so powerful. I'm starting to think deep down that I haven't done enough to process my ds's birth. I didn't write the story, I didn't get my records. I think all I've done the last five years is my best to make sure it never happened again.

Oh, one more thing...I have something to share that's so funny, you'll either cry or pee while you laugh (maybe both). I sent it to the YG already, but if there's someone here that wants to see it and not on the YG, PM me and I'll send it to you. I'm sorry, I don't have a link. It's completely tasteful and very clean, but hilarious!
