The Snore Heard Around the World

Julia woke up yesterday morning with one of the worst colds I think she has ever had. This time Jon took her to Urgent Care since I was just there on Friday with Samantha. Turns out her tonsils are huge and she has a sinus infection. I thought kids got sick in the winter, not the summer?? Anyway, when Julia is sick we let her sleep in our bed. She sometimes will say she is sick just to sleep with us, but this time it was for real. Well as we were settling down around 8:30 pm last night (hey I have a baby- early bed time is a must!) Julia rolled over and went to sleep right away. Not more than 5 minutes later, someone started to snore. I said "Jon, roll over you are snoring." He said "That is not me." It was Julia! She sounded like a grown man! It was funny, but so loud that I could not go to sleep. She I took my pillows (I have 3- don't ask) and slept in her bed. Kinda nice having a bed to myself :) Around 1 am I got up to check on everyone and there was Julia and her daddy, peacefully asleep and snoring in sync :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I look forward to reading all about it!

4 Hours

So I just wasted 4 hours at Urgent Care to hear that Samantha has a cold and the beginnings of cradle cap. We weren't sure if the crusty stuff around her ear was leaking from her ear thus being an infection, but nope- dandruff. I felt like such an idiot! The doctor reassured me that I was right to bring her in because you never know. But hey- at least the waiting room had a TV with Oprah :)

I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday weekend! I am sending sun your way- we have plenty of it :)

  1. I am the only one who really does not care about "American Idol"?? I mean I watched the first season and it was good, but by now you would think it is a little over done. I just think that there were better things on the TV than that :)
  2. I have not watched "Lost" yet and it is sitting on my TiVo. Please cross your fingers that both girls take a nap this afternoon so that I can sit and watch.
  3. Julia I think has turned a corner in her behavior. She has been such an angel the last week that I am a little scared. This is when I get used to her like this and then before I know it the demon child will make an appearance. I might as well eat it up while I can.
  4. I forgot that having a baby meant that you had to buy stuff for them all the time. Diapers, formula, bottle liners, etc. And I thought I would be using all of Julia's hammy downs, yet I think Samantha has worn maybe 2 outfits that are not new. Little girl clothes are the cutest so it is hard to resist.
  5. "The Children's Place" by the way is the best place for good, cheap, and cute clothes.
  6. Isn't this so random that I have lost your interest by now.
  7. Do you think that I will ever have a worthwhile post again??
  8. Okay I am done- thanks for reading!

Better Around Here

We had a tough day on Sunday and things are much better. It is a wonder where all of your money goes and it sucks when things get tight. The newest little wonderful addition (Samantha) kicked our asses with PPO insurance payments so I am cutting back on some stuff. Saving money is important to us and we just need to get back on track. But hey- who isn't??


PS Sorry to be such a bummer. All in all everything is good :)

Don't you hate it when you have high hopes for the day and it starts off shitty. Suggestion- don't talk to hubby about money at 7:30 am or after you just spent money at the spa the day before :)

The Gym and a Life

This morning I am going back to the gym. I have been walking lately and decided that it is time for this big body of mine to get back into shape. I was doing so good before I got pregnant that I want that feeling back. They say it takes 21 days to make a habit- let's hope I get there :)

Yesterday I saved a life. I didn't realize I did till the hubby said that to me. I was at my friend Robin's house and she has a pool in her back yard. I was sitting watching Julia and her 4 year old Luke swim in the pool. Her other child, Jake, is 20 months old and he doesn't really like the pool so he just toddles around the yard. Jake walks past me and I think he stepped backwards, but before I knew it he fell into the pool! I jumped fully clothed into the pool to get him. It was so weird though because he didn't struggle or try to swim to the top- he just lied there and was starting to sink to the bottom. Imagine if I was not right there!! I got him out and he started to choke and cry. My heart was beating so fast and I start to shake a little. I am just glad that I was there and that I was paying attention :)

So that was my day of drama. The kids start swim lessons next week so hopefully they all learn a little water safety :)

Thought of the Day

My life would be so much easier if the baby would keep the damn binky in her mouth!!! She wants it yet spits it out after a minute. Where is the new invention of the "binky bra" when you need it :)

Two Months

I am such a bad mommy and forgot the mandatory post about Samantha's second month of life. I am sick you see and I would rather cuddle with my two children in my bed and watch Scooby Doo all day long. Anyway, Samantha was 2 months old on Sunday. I had such a great Mommie's Day with my two girls. She has officially found her voice and has begun to spin tales about being a baby. Last night she went on and on after her bath that I was laughing so hard I was crying. She also begun the process of turning over. Now I am excited about this, but at the same time I know that I can no longer put her on the couch as I make a bottle or go to the bathroom. I remember when Julia rolled of the couch when she was 3 months old. I cried right along with her thinking I was a bad mommy. Little did I know that was the first of many falls :)

We go to the doctor next week for the dreaded first round of shots. I hate that! I cried when they gave them to Julia so I am sure I will this time too. I can't wait though to see how much our little chunk weighs. She will drink up to 6 ounces at a time and doesn't throw it up so I know that she wants that much food. Maybe that is why she sleeps almost through the night- 7:30 pm to about 4:30 am. I know I am lucky!!

This has been the best experience so far and I love having a little one again. She makes our family complete and I look forward to seeing her grow into a little lady :)

I am sick. Sore throat and so tired that I can see straight. And guess what I am a mom so there is no time for whining- at least not my whining. Poor me-right?? :)

A Day Just for Us

Just wanted to wish my fellow blogging mommies and friends a Happy Mother's Day!! I hope you all have a great day and that you get treated extra special :)

Love ya!!!

The Pill

When I went to the doctor the other day my blood pressure was normal. Now if you have been reading this blog you might know that when I was pregnant my blood pressure ran high, but then went back to normal. Anyway, he told me that he didn't want me taking a birth control pill with estrogen it because that tends to raise your blood pressure. So he put me on the "mini pill" which only contains progesterone (don't ask me what the hell that it is, but if it works then fine by me) I didn't know that was what it was till I picked up my prescription and I have heard stories that it makes you crazy. Has anyone experienced that who has taken this pill?? OR Have you had a good experience with it and you an reassure me that I am not going to go coo-koo :)

Oh What a Lovely Morning So Far

Why is it when a 4 year old throws a tantrum (over nothing I might add) it is like a crazy person has taken over her body?? It was like I should of thrown her in a cold shower to calm her down!! Insane!!

My morning has sucked so far- Prey for me :)

Is being a good liar and good or a bad trait? And let's say (for hypothetical reasons) I am very good at lying and I used my 2 month old baby to get out of a playdate today?? (No Julie I really want to play with you so don't worry) And I would never use my skills for evil- I swear :)

The Green Light and a Little Too Much TMI

No wonder the hubby was super duper nice to me this morning- I have my 6 week check up today and the green light for nookie. Now I wonder how I can work this to my advantage. I do need a new pair of cute shoes :)

The Sigh

Yesterday I took the girls to visit my grandma. Not a big deal- just a 45 min. drive to the oasis for 55+ people. The place where grandchildren visit, but are not seen or heard and golf carts is the typical mode of transportation. Anyway, we went to the clubhouse for lunch and for some reason I was so nervous. How was I going to entertain a 4 year old during lunch so she does not disturb the people there who were eating.? Normally I wouldn't care as much, but this is where 85 year old people come to eat and I would hate for Julia to release the scream of death. Well lunch went fine- no major incidents and she actually ate! So we got in the car to go back to GG's house and I let out this huge *SIGH*. That got me thinking that I will probably sigh like that for the rest of my life. It is the mom's sigh of relief. Good at a restaurant- sigh. Doctor says it is just a cold- sigh. Was good for the babysitter- sigh. Then I realized that when they are older the sighs will be because they are safe. Home from a party- sigh. First time alone driving in the car and home safe- sigh. Meeting the man of their dreams and I like him- HUGE sigh.

Having the baby smile at me in the middle of the night and Julia wake up and say "I love you Mommy."- that is the biggest and best sigh of my life :)


PS The baby slept through lunch- got to love that!!!

One Hand

Here are the things I have learned to do with one hand:

1- Make a bottle
2- Butter toast
3- Brush my teeth (that includes putting on toothpaste)
4- Put make-up on
5- Dress myself
6- Write this blogger entry (it is taking like 10 minutes to do so)

I prefer to do these things using both hands, but when you are holding on to this how can you resist??


PS The first thing Julia said to me this morning was "Mom, who got kicked off American Idol last night?"

We are Here and We are Sick

We are here- not going anywhere. We are coughing. We are snotty. We also have f-ing pink eye!!! The doctor told me that they can get pink eye when they have a cold because it is their congestion coming out of their eyes. Um...yeah that is gross! So I am washing sheets, washing hands, and I keep rubbing my own eye thinking that I have it. Also, the big kid is sleeping in our bed so I am sure you know what that is like.

Okay I needed to complain and now I am done- for now :)
