more poo in the night - but none this morning. dd seems really happy and strong...but she's still obviously pretty ill! I hate all the antiobiotic and probiotic palaver...and practically getting the stuff down her throat is a nightmare!

thanks for hugs, all...

Well, I was thinking of boycotting this thread, since we're talking in codes I don't understand and I feel left out and unloved.

But I decided to get over myself, because I just have to remark on my son's latest uncanny ability. When placed on the floor of a very clean (looking) floor with toys available in every direction, he will scooch his little self to some remote location and find the one leaf, dustbunny, or other decidedly disgusting thing in the room and chew on that. The boy came with Yuck Radar.

Ethan, : that's funny.

PL/SQL= Potty Learning, Square Dance Learning? WTF?

The last teeny dream I could squeeze in this morning before I was rudely awakened by Sol was one in which I went to this event with Sol, a dance thing, and someone had brought Amara, and also a huge sheet of really great homemade fruit leather. Then, Amara stood up and walked into the other room, toddling on 8 month old legs. Shocked me! Then I woke up.

only ten posts since I was last on last night....

nothing new or funny going on around this house. ds1 is spending the night with MIL/FIL and I miss him

they always want to keep him for more than one night (it is spring break here and mil is a teacher) and I am like nooooooo, I like him, that is to long.

I am so glad that mason will NOT take a bottle for only the reason of nobody can watch him overnight! there are plenty of times where i do wish that he would gulp down a bottle, like when I want more than two glasses of wine timed between two feeds :

have a good night ladies, we are in for yucky weather here.

Busy wife to dh for 5 years and mama to ds1 (11.09.04), ds2 (7.17.06) and ds3 coming Aug 09. :::

PL/SQL (Procedural Language/Structured Query Language)

I knew the SQL part, but had to google the PL part.

Can I come in??

Nicholas arrived on July 4th. He is my Yankee Doodle. Born at Home - My midwife didn't make it

I have another little one, Sam - who is 3.5 and into everything...

I didn't read all 11 pages of the thread but I read the first one & this one AF hasn't returned and returned at 18 mos PP with ds1 - I'm hopeful

Here's my question for y'all - have you left your baby yet? Nicholas has only been left with Daddy & I've gotten the "We need Mommy" phone call. How about u?

Hiya! You are absolutely welcome!! Congrats on your independence babe (yeah, watch out for that later ) and looking forward to getting to know you! We've done re-introductions in the last 3 pages or so, so that's a good place to start if you don't want toread the whole thread

Hi AmyCArin welcome
my babe was july 4 too

I'm soo out of it - life too busy and I'm too short on time to get on the computer at the moment. I start work mornings on Monday !!!

Ok my intro
My name is Claire and my partner is Laura (yep she's a she ) we've been together 11 years and when we got together I grieved because although I was happy to come out as a lesbian finally I thought I would never have kids. And I was one of THOSE women who had always wanted children. But hey we've proved anything is possible. Our donor was a friend of a friend and a wonderful man who just wanted to help us create our family. The kids can meet him when they are older but he is not a parent, merely a biological father to them. I am so blessed to have my kids.

Our whole family is vegetarian and we live in New Zealand. I'm a social worker and my partner is a therapist working with children and adolescents who sexually offend (yep they do believe it or not it's more common than you think). We work 20 hours a week each and share looking after the kids....... ok that's enough from me.

Hi everyone I"ve been reading but not posting shame on me but big

Welcome, Amy! There's probably some of each end of the spectrum as far as leaving the baby goes. I've not left my baby yet, but then she's the youngest of the group at seven months old today! I'm visiting my mom at the end of this month and I may take advantage of having her around.

Yeah it is crazy, when she does it. I was asking dh today if he thought we could get it on video. I know we could get Yay! and NumNumNum because those are frequent and triggered easily.
We went to eat the other night and I was giving her a grain of rice at a time to entertain her. This kid loves rice. I would put it on the table and let her pick it up and put it in her mouth. it was the funniest thing watching her try to pick up the tiny thing then try to put it in her mouth and then watching her chew it up. Greatness, I tell you.

Works great for most nausea, but not always. A great homeopathic for overeating. take it after a big meal and you feel much better.

I've had a scary time with dd2 who was diagnosed yesterday with as-good-as pneumonia, very very nearly, has had awful green water poohs and was dehydrated - to the extent where she could have been taken to hospital and put on a drip for a week. Luckily my dr wanted to do everything to stop that happening. dd is on antibiotics : and homeopathics and seemed so much better today (also having loads of milk again) until this evening the runny pooh started again, this time yellow. I'm worried again.
Hugs to your illness. i'm so sorry for sich a scare.

That breastfeeding study is right down the street from me. And as I am both a breastfeeder and urinater (and desperately in need of money), I have contacted the woman via e-mail and will probably call tomorrow to see if I can get in on this.

And we are camped out at my mom's currently. Thank goodness I have her. We have no electricty in our house. The E company came out on Friday to turn on the power in our name, their system said there was no power in our house. We have had pwer since we looked at the place before we even knew we wanted it. The shut us off because our meter is illegal and our box has no front cover. Landlord took 30 or so hours to get an electrician to our house to illegally hook up power again. So on monday morning, the E company comes again and shuts us down. The landlord is working on it. His electrician has to find the cover, put it on, contact the city for inspection, contact e company to get it turned back on, etc, etc, etc. So we are out of our house, inconveniencing my parents probably for most of the week. He did say he'd give us a break on our rent for this, but we lost a lot of food and my dh had to come home on Monday to get us because I couldn't cook anything. And we had nothing ready-to-eat. Also, my dh's employer has seriously cut back hours as they don't have much work. My s-dad also works there and is stressing, but still getting paid because he's management. So both of the guy are looking at potentially losing their jobs. And we just moved into our own place. : Guhs to myself.


I just have to say yay for healthy kids. Cause that's all I need. All the rest is jsut gravy, right? If anyone knows of anything work-at-home, not pushing your friends into buying stuff, that I could do, please pm me. Gotta go. My baby is huffing, that means crying will ensue if boob is not in mouth quickly and then 2 babies will cry. Good night.

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

I also work. Four whole days each week. Wanna fight about it? :


Many-o posts for responding, but I did want to say JJoy, I appreciate your willingness to talk about all topics forbidden. I enjoy discussing poop - no one seems to appreciate this as much as DH. It's sad because poop can be fun. I've been sitting here busting a gut over "JoyofPoop"

And Tanya, mega-cute pictures of your BABY GIRL! :
first of all I MISSED YOU. and also every time I see you I think of family guy...that's gotta be where you got your sn from? dh adores fg and watches it alot. I gotta admit its pretty funny! no fighting here about work as I work FT

You mean you've never had a meal where you overindulged? Even just a little? I don't overeat all the time, but on occasion there is a meal just too yummy and I've eaten too much. Especially on Thanksgiving!

Egads, does it never stop??? I'm so sorry - what a headache. You seem in good spirits, though I'm amazaed at what Mattie can do. Ethan has just discovered the Shriek of Earsplitting Loudness, and he is ever so thrilled with himself. Joy.

Hey, when you get your power turned back on, we can call you JoyofJuice!

That's a good way to end up pregnant!
And rock on with your bad multiquoting self!

As far as leaving the babe, I've left Ethan a few times but it hasn't been easy. I can now leave him with his dad for a couple of hours, provided he's just eaten. He's stayed with his grandma a couple of times, mostly for the experience, and she brings him back to me when he starts getting unhappy.

Tanya, your sig is cracking me up. I love DH's. They're so sweet and so, so clueless sometimes! Like it's just impossible to imagine, 40 whole days without cheese! BTW, I'm doing really well on that front, there was that stupid lapse on the first day, and then that one unfortunate incident with the pizza, but I've been back on track. Last night we had tacos, and mine were cheese-free. Scarily enough, I'm almost not missing it! (I did say 'almost')

I haven't left mine, either. I probably would for 20 minutes or so, a short errand or something, but only with his dad. For me, the hassle and anxiety involved with leaving an infant have just never been worth it, and fortunately I haven't ever had to (well, I did leave my first baby when I was working on my thesis, but that sucked!).

Jami--dearheart--here's the deal. And actually, FTR, you could read back over last month's thread although actually it happened late January...for the serious researcher...

my mom, (and there's a whole novel to be told there), came and visited, staying in my upstairs room which has no bathroom. One needs to go down kind of scary, metal spiral stairs to relieve oneself, which daunted her at night since I guess she micturates with regularity in the eve hours. Anyway, she took it upon herself to find something she could pee into and in the morning, throw it away. This happened to be my nice big tupperware container for like salads, complete with top. I still don't have anything nice like that to replace it, which she said she would. We had a tiny argument about whether or not I thought it was gross (it's fine, but I'm not going to eat out of it again, was my response).

Somehow in my sleepy-eyed state I missed your post this morning. : Why, yes, I have! There was a stupid lapse the first day. Totally mindless and majot moment, but I've done really well so far. I've had some temptations like pizza and a lamentable moment when I realized lasagna was out for now.

Yay for you for not giving in entirely for just a little lapse! I've noticed I'm not missing it as much either. Ds begged us to take him to his fave pizza buffet (which is a family fave,too). I had the salad bar. and a little bit of dessert pizza
