catch up

darn....I so failed this past couple of days on the blog challenge.

We had a great weekend relaxing and running errands. Monday Lily Anne enjoyed the new classroom and a new food of cheeseburger bites. Her teachers said she did wonderful and wanted seconds. Alrighty then! Tuesday....humm...HORRIBLE. She work up with the nasty crusty eyes! PINK EYE and COLD. Wonderful...she was pretty good with me yesterday. Although, I was not 100%...being that I have cold too.

so a sick baby + sick mommy at home = 50% a good day. Lily Anne was a trooper. However, last night got the best of her..45 minutes of sleep. WHOA!!

so a sick mommy, baby and a very tired daddy = complete failure!

I ended up calling my mom at 2:30am asking for a little support and help. Well, I got the wonderful voice of soothing mom....but she refused to come help me. (I did not ask her to right then, but in the morning to help during the day) Seriously hurt my feelings! I am RARELY call her for help...but she can run and help my sister and the twins at the drop of the dime...but I get nothing!!!!! But, "I sorry but you moved away". OH MY FREAKING DEAR~ I am 1:35 minutes away.

Oh well....oops Lily Anne is up...

Thankful Thursday…

I am thankful for my family, my husband, my daughter. Each one has played such a huge role in life the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I love my daughter more than life! “ To wear your heart on the outside of your body”….is a complete understatement of motherhood. I can say that she is my life and let anyone do something wrong….the fire in my soul will haunt you. I have never been so proud of something that I help create. She is very reason I say, “yes, she is mine.” Although, her temper can make me crazy and think hello, I begged for this…explain to me why!!

My husband…best friend, roommate, lover, and my crutch! He has swept me off my feet from day one. I am so proud of him. He supports me when I am at my nasty PMS self to my loving ways. Yes, there are moments when we fight, exchange hurtful words, say “I am done”….except we keep standing there arguing it out. Then like two kids makeup and say I love you no matter what.

My family, where to start. My mom and I are so much alike we pick fights for fun. My dad, he is a huge teddy bear and heart of gold. My sister, the memories, jokes…OMG she is my lifesaver! I am who I am because of them. I love them all and would not know what to do if they were not there. I am a little over 2 hours away from my family. Some days I am thanking god for the miles between, then there are the days where I would like to stop in for a quick hello or dinner.

So much to be thankful for!!!

On the home front….things are good! Lily Anne has found that she has a belly and will show anyone even the dog!!!

We - Woddler...

Lily Anne is moving into her new classroom this week. She is adjusting quite well to the new surroundings, schedule, and friends.

I really stressed out about the classroom transition from crawlers to pre-walkers. Lily Anne had it rough for about a week. Screaming when I dropped her off, Mommy not understanding or liking the new schedule, wondering why must she move rooms, and transitioning from 2 naps to 1 nap a day. What were they thinking!!! (also, probably did not help that we just came back from vacation) I loved the crawlers room and teachers. Since then, I have grown to love her teachers in the pre-walking classroom and Lily Anne has too. I know it is time for her to step up to the next room, but I hate saying good bye!

so what is a wee-wobblers? you must be 1yr, walking, on table food, and Sippy cups
In this classroom....she will be
Eating at a table
Learning folks and spoons
Sleeping on a nap mat (no more cribs)
Learning sign language, dance, music and art.

Yesterday, I brought home artwork of blue bubbles! Finger painting! I really have to give it to her teachers and the daycare. The center works so hard to keep the kids going and keeps them one step ahead on the milestones. The teachers are constantly working with each child and their needs.

Sleeping on a nap mat....I am still pondering this.. How do you get 11 kids on their mats, asleep and stay there? I haven’t a clue. But when I pop over for "surprise visit” during my lunch, sure enough the whole center (minus the infant room and crawlers) sleeping peacefully with no tears or sounds. Just the sweet soft sounds of lullabies playing over the speakers.

Never say Never

When I was pregnant I would always say, "i am never going to..."

Co-sleeping: Still to this day I have stuck to my guns, although there have been nights and mornings where I will bring her downstairs.

Staying out late: Still going strong, we are ususally home by Lily Anne's bedtime. I really hate to see kids out at Wal-mart or the grocery store after 10 or 11.

Arguing infront of Lily Anne: FAIL. But we do make up infront of her, and tell we love her. I am guessing she see conflict and resolution

The list could go on for days! I really do try to keep a balance of the good and bad.

Well the story of our life. ENT visits!

So the left ear tube has fallen out. The right is still in. Funny! The on-call ped said opposite. Who do you believe? I believe the ENT any day.

Lily Anne is doing much better now. Thank you from up above.

catching a break...yeah right


I am really beginnging to wonder about it all! We are on one BIG roller coaster. I would really like to take the exit lane instead of getting back on.

The day after Lily Anne's party she ended up with a nasty eye infection and a ear infection. However, I was not happy it....but happy with the fact that the tubes in ther ears were working the ear infection was draining out. (gross I know...but reality is gross). Oral meds, eye drops, and ear drops were in full working order. All was well in the we thought.

This weekend started it all over again. Except it brought fevers, cranky, yucky baby! I thought just a cold, since her ear wer not draining except for Sunday she spiked a lovely 103 fever. Off to the after hour peds. Why the HELL did I say it was so nice not having to visit the peds office.

So now we have a double ear infection (although NO drainage)AND the DR thinks her tube has fallen out. SERIOUSLY!!! Dr (not her normal one) told us here is her meds and come back if you so not showing improvement in 2 or 3 days. Definitely come back in 2 weeks for a follow-up. Your normal Dr will most likely have you follow up with you ENT then. UM>>>nah, so yesterday we called the ENT office told them what is going on...Appt tomorrow at 11:40. I am a little bummed out...but I am hopeful that this will be over soon.

Lily Anne was a trooper yesterday. She stayed at home all day with daddy. I am so proud of him. As much as he gets on my nerves I can not live without him. He is such a great dad and husband.

30 Day Challenge

Here's how it works:

*The 30 day blog challenge is not about blogging every day for 30 days. Realistically that's just setting you up for failure. Life happens, and not every day can we sit down and pour our minds out on a keyboard.

For six weeks straight, aim to write a new blog post five times a week. That could mean one blog post every weekday Monday through Friday, or just five random days throughout the week that work best for you.

Want to join in the fun....check out Falling for Baby for badge and all the rules!
